AMMAN - The Syrian army regained control of a road southeast of Aleppo on Wednesday, state television said, taking back the government's only supply route into the city from Islamic State fighters who had seized it last month.

Army forces took full control of the road which runs from Aleppo through the towns of Khanaser and Ithriya and links up with the cities of Hama and Homs further south, the channel flashed in a news bulletin. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group confirmed the report.

The road is the army's supply route to government-held western parts of Aleppo, home to around 2 million people.
