Al-Nusra Positions in Idlib Province Destroyed in Syrian Armed Forces’ Attacks


The Syrian Army and Air Force pounded the strongholds of Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) in Southern and Eastern Idlib, destroying several bases of terrorists on Wednesday.

The army’s artillery and missile units opened heavy fire at the Al-Nusra’s positions and movements in the village of Qatra near al-Nu’aman and also in Um Jalal region in Southeastern Idlib, inflicting major losses on the militants.

The army aircraft also conducted a heavy bombing on the strongholds of Tahrir al-Sham and other terrorist groups in Ma’ar Zita and Ma’ar Harma in Southern Idlib.

Local sources reported that several command posts and vital positions of terrorists were destroyed and a number of militants were killed or wounded in the attacks.

In a relevant development earlier this month the Russian and Syrian warplanes carried out several rounds of combat flights over the positions and movements of Tahrir al-Sham in Jisr al-Shughour, Ariha, Jabal al-Zawiyeh, Jabal al-Araba’een, al-Sukriyeh, al-Qasaniyeh and Halouz region in Southwestern Idlib, killing an unspecified number of militants and destroying their equipment.

A local source said that an underground base of Tahrir al-Sham was destroyed in the air raids in Jabal al-Zawiyeh region, adding that the militants sustained at least a dozen casualties in the incident.
