Syrian Troops Launch Major Offensive on Militant Groups in Idlib
The Syrian army targeted insurgents’ concentration centers and hideouts in several areas in Idlib countryside, killing and wounding tens of rebels.
A military source told FNA on Monday that army soldiers targeted the militants’ hideouts in Jabal al-Arbaeen in Idlib, Northwestern Syria, killing and wounding a large number of them.
FNA dispatches from Syria said that over 50 Takfiri terrorists, many of them foreigners, were killed in the army’s operations in Idlib countryside and their bodies are still left on the battlegrounds.
The source said that Jabal al-Arbaeen is now witnessing heavy fighting between the Syrian army and the terrorists, adding that the governmental forces have acted successfully in the region and are now advancing towards al-Fanar restaurant.
The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
