Syrian Army Expands Security Zone around Strategic Airbase in Idlib
The army men, backed up by artillery units and Air Force, managed to beat terrorists back from the settlement of Khafiyeh West of the town of Abu al-Dhohour.
A number of terrorists were killed and their military hardware were destroyed in the attacks.
The army’s engineering units started defusing bombs and landmines in the newly-freed settlement.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Tuesday that the Army troops pushed terrorists back from 322 villages, towns and regions in a large region stretching among the provinces of Idlib, Hama and Aleppo in nearly a month of operation, killing almost 300 terrorists.
The SOHR reported that the army has freed 322 villages, towns and regions in 29 days of large-scale operation against terrorists in Southern Aleppo, Northeastern Hama and Southeastern Idlib.
It added that 297 terrorists, including 103 non-Syrians, from Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board), the Islamic al-Turkistani Party and other groups have been killed in the army operation in the three provinces.
