Syrian Army Inches Closer to Key Terrorist-Held Airbase in Southeastern Idlib
The army men captured the villages of Tal al-Ouja Qarbi, Karatin Kabireh, Ma’amal al-Toun, Ab al-Khazna, Um Jaran, Rasm al-Hamidi and Zaboudeh after intensifying attacks on Al-Nusra positions in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, the sources said, adding that the army men have deployed near the strategic Abu al-Dhohour airbase.
The army has liberated over 120 villages and towns in its operation in Northeastern Hama and Southeastern Idlib that started on October 22.
Reports said earlier today that the army men stormed heavily Al-Nusra’s positions in Southeastern Idlib and captured the villages of Abu Tahtiheh, Sha’arah al-Aja’ez and Hawa Farm.
The army’s engineering units started to defuse landmines and bombs planted by the terrorists in the region as soon as Al-Nusra retreated.
