Syrian Army Takes Control of Strategic Town in Idlib Countryside
The Syrian army regained control of Shaikh al-Jabir town in Idlib countryside after fierce clashes with the al-Nusra Front.
The army units in charge of defending the city of Jasr al-Shaghour targeted the positions of the terrorists in Shaikh al-Jabir town and destroyed their military hardware.
They took control of the town after fierce clashes with al-Nusrah Front’s terrorists and killed and wounded several members of the terrorist group.
The ringleader of the so called ‘North Sky Battalion’ terrorist group was also among those killed in the clashes.
The Northern Province of Idlib bordering Turkey has been the scene of insurgency since 2011 when a large number of international terrorists infiltrated into the province from Turkey.
The Syrian Army and government have defended their country against insurgents since 2011 when a huge number of foreign terrorists flocked to the Middle-Eastern country.
In spite of certain western states’ military and financial supports for militants, the Syrian troops have been able to push them back from many areas across the country, and based on military observers the fall of militancy in Syria is not far.
