For the second day in a row, mutual targeting between the Syrian army and the militants on the “Jabal Al-Zawiya” axes
Today, Monday, several axes in “Jabal Al-Zawiya” in the southern countryside of Idlib witnessed mutual targeting between the Syrian army and the Turkish-backed militias, who continue to carry out their attacks on the areas of the Syrian state in the region.
SDC sources indicated that the mutual targeting between the two sides came for the second day in a row, and was concentrated in the axes of the villages of “Sfuhun” and “Al-Fatirah”, starting with the armed men’s attack with rocket-propelled grenades on Syrian army points in the area.
SDC sources indicated that the Syrian army’s response came by targeting the gatherings of militants in the area with artillery, which managed to achieve direct casualties, in addition to targeting a gathering of Ankara factions that were monitored near one of the illegal Turkish bases in the area.
On Sunday, the Syrian army had carried out similar targeting of the positions of the Turkish-backed militants within the “Jabal Al-Zawiya” axes, and then managed to destroy a “pickup” vehicle loaded with a heavy machine gun, minutes after it left the illegal Turkish point located in the vicinity of “Maarat Alia”.
The Syrian army’s targeting of the positions of the Turkish-backed militants in the southern countryside of Idlib came in response to their repeated attacks, which have increased in frequency within the context of the Turkish military escalation that has been going on for months in northern Syria, and is accompanied by the continuous violations of the “de-escalation” agreement signed between Russia and Turkey in the northwest of the country.
