The Syrian army retook a strategic town from the ISIS group Thursday, paving the way for the reopening of its sole supply route to main northern city Aleppo.The army's counteroffensive was backed by Russian airstrikes which killed 20 ISIS fighters, said the Observatory, a Britain-based monitoring group.Rebels severed it in 2013 and ISIS also did so last year before being pushed back.The war against ISIS will go on as the group is specifically excluded from the planned truce, as is Al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate Al-Nusra Front.
