Syrian Army Cuts off Key Supply Line to Al-Nusra-Held Town in Idlib

4 February 2018 18:35


The Syrian Army troops, backed up by artillery and missile units and Air Force, managed to close off a strategic road to the town of Saraqib that is under the control of the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) terrorist group, local sources confirmed on Sunday.

The sources said that the artillery and missile units and the army aircraft pounded the positions of Al-Nusra in Saraqib and its outskirts in Eastern Idlib, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.

The sources went on to say that the warplanes conducted heavy bombardment against a convoy of Al-Nusra, including several tanks and military vehicles, East of Saraqib on Aleppo-Idlib road, destroying most of the vehicles and tanks.

They added that the army has now cut off a key supply road to Saraqib that pushed the terrorist front in Eastern Idlib towards full collapse.

Field sources said on Saturday that the Al-Nusra Front started pulling its forces back from the outskirts of the Shiite towns of Fua’a and Kafraya North-East of Idlib city amid the rapid advances of the Syrian Army in the region.

The sources reported that Al-Nusra abandoned five positions in the Northern and Eastern directions of Fua’a and Kafraya as the army men were rapidly advancing towards the town of Saraqib in their push Northward to lift the siege on the towns.

Other sources said that terrorists planted a large number of landmines around Saraqib and have dispatched more convoys of fighters to the region to slow down the army advances.
