Syrian Army Sends More Troops to Northwest for Idlib Operation
The Army dispatched a large number of soldiers and military hardware to Northern Hama, Southern Idlib, Western Aleppo and mountains in Northern Lattakia, preparing for a large-scale operation against terrorists.
In the meantime, the artillery and missile units shelled heavily the strongholds of Kata’eb al-Izzah in the villages and towns of Morek, Abu Obeidah and Ma’arkabah in Northern Hama, inflicting major casualties on the militants.
Other artillery units opened heavy fire at Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) positions in Tal al-Sakhar and Kafr Zita regions in Northern Hama, al-Tamanna in Southern Idlib and Jabal al-Turkmen in Northern Lattakia, destroying their positions and killing or wounding a number of gunmen.
Terrorists’ failed attempts to evacuate people from regions near the positions of the Syrian Army in Aleppo province pushed on Saturday the militants into deep concern about implementation of a reconciliation plan in Northwestern Syria.
Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at gave a two-day ultimatum to the residents of the villages of Jazraya, al-Othmaniyeh, Howeir al-Eis, Zamar, Jadida Talafaj, Banes, Tal Bajer and Barnah near the positions of the army forces to leave their region.
Tahrir al-Sham has declared the villages near army positions as military zone to prevent people from joining the peace agreement.
Villagers defied the call, stating to Tahrir al-Sham through their local councils that they will never leave their home.
Tahrir al-Sham has recently arrested a number of people, accusing them of promoting the army’s peace plan.
