Syrian Army soldiers have killed scores of foreign-backed insurgents fighting government forces in the flashpoint city of Aleppo.

The armed men were killed during intense clashes with Syrian troops in the al-Shaar neighbourhood of Aleppo on Saturday, the SANA news agency reported.

Syrian troops also destroyed a weapons cache in the Sayyed Ali neighbourhood of the violence-plagued city, which is located 355 kilometers (220 miles) north of Damascus, and killed all the insurgents at the site, the Syrian military announced.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army inflicted heavy losses on foreign-sponsored insurgents in Aleppo’s Darat Izza district on Saturday and destroyed 10 pickup trucks equipped with Dushka machine guns.

Syrian soldiers also attacked insurgents who were driving down the al-Atareb-Oroum al-Soughra highway in dozens of vehicles equipped with Dushka machine guns, killing a large number of them.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011.

Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and accuses Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of arming the opposition.
