9 January 2018 17:49


Terrorists were driven out of three more regions in Southeastern Idlib within the framework of the Syrian Army troops to liberate the strategic Abu al-Dhohour airbase, military sources said Tuesday.

The army men, backed up by the artillery and missile units, continued to target the defense lines of Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) in Southeastern Idlib and captured the villages of Nafileh, Sarouj and Um Tamakh in their push towards Abu al-Dhohour military airport.

The army men killed and wounded a large number of militants and destroyed their equipment in the clashes.

Field sources said earlier today that the army troops beat Al-Nusra Front back from eleven more regions in Southeastern Idlib and managed to take position only three kilometers away from Abu al-Dhohour airbase.

The sources said that the army soldiers imposed control over the villages of al-Ojeh, Babi’eh Bornan, Um Mavilat Shamlaliyeh, Vard’aeh, Jaberiyeh, Mar’aya, al-Hiseh, Estilat, Zafar Saqir and Zafar Kabi, deploying 3 km away from Abu al-Dhohour airbase.

Other sources in Southeastern Idlib reported that a large number of terrorists of the Islamic al-Turkistani party have escaped from the battlefield under the Syrian army’s heavy artillery and missile fire and pursuing advances of the army’s ground troops.
