12 November 2018 14:48

The Damascus Army units exchanged heavy fire with terrorists deployed in the demilitarized zone and warded off their attacks on government forces’ positions in Hama and Idlib provinces over the past 24 hours.

The army men engaged in fierce clashes with a group of terrorists of Kata’eb al-Izzah in Zalin and al-Zalaqiat in Northern Hama in the demilitarized zone mentioned in the Sochi Agreement, inflicting major losses on them and repelling their attack.

Other units of the army clashed fiercely with terrorists in al-Wasetah West of the small town of Abu al-Dhohour in Southeastern Idlib and fended off their assault.

Meantime, the Syrian army continued its military advances in other parts of Syria over the past 24 hours.

Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army’s operations in provinces across Syria.

Hama-Idlib

The Syrian Army units exchanged heavy fire with terrorists deployed in the demilitarized zone and fended off their attacks on government forces’ positions in Hama and Idlib provinces on Sunday.

The army men engaged in fierce clashes with a group of terrorists of Kata’eb al-Izzah in Zalin and al-Zalaqiat in Northern Hama in the demilitarized zone mentioned in the Sochi Agreement, inflicting major losses on them and repelling their attack.

Other units of the army clashed fiercely with terrorists in al-Wasetah West of the small town of Abu al-Dhohour in Southeastern Idlib and fended off their assault.

In the meantime, the army’s artillery and missile units shelled heavily the movements of a group of terrorists and preempted their attack on army positions in the village of Tal Malah North of Mahrada from the village of Hasraya.

The terrorist group suffered heavy casualties and pulled the remaining pockets of its forces back from the battlefield.

Aleppo

The Turkish troops and their allied militants targeted the strongholds of the Kurdish militias in Manbij region in Northeastern Aleppo in violation of an earlier agreement between Ankara and Washington, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Sunday.

SOHR reported that the Ankara-backed forces known as the Euphrates Shield opened heavy machinegun fire at the village of al-Hamran Northwest of the town of Manbij.

It further said that the Ankara forces targeted the positions of the Syrian Democratic Forces and farms in the region.

In the meantime, the US-led coalition fighter jets conducted round the clock flights over Manbij.

The attacks were carried out regardless of an agreement between the US and Turkish forces to carry out joint patrols along a buffer zone separating the Euphrates Shield forces from the Manbij Military Council forces.

Hasaka

The Turkish Army dispatched a fresh military convoy to the borders with Hasaka in Northeastern Syria as the Kurdish militias are preparing to counter the Ankara forces’ possible attack, local sources said on Sunday.

The sources said that the Turkish convoy, including heavy equipment and fresh forces, has been sent to Jilan Biner passageway near the Syrian town of Ra’as al-Ein in Northern Hasaka.

The sources further said that the Turkish army aircraft carried out regular flights over borders with Syria.

In the meantime, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has fortified its positions in the town of Ra’as al-Ein, digging a number of tunnels around the town and in its outskirts.

The SDF has also forced residents in Ra’as al-Ein to leave their residential units and have turned them into military positions.

Raqqa

The Syrian Army is planning to deploy thousands of fresh forces along the contact lines with the Syrian Democratic Forces in Raqqa province in Northeastern Syria, well-informed sources reported on Sunday.

The sources said that the army is planning to station almost 5,000 fresh forces and more equipment at contact lines with the SDF from the village of Sho’ayb al-Zekr in Western Raqqa to the village of Dahlah in the East.

The sources further said that the plan was decided after intensification of tensions between Raqqa’s residents and the SDF and growing insecurity in the region.

Tensions have been rising between Raqqa citizens and SDF militants during the last week after Sheikh Bashar Faysal Al-Huwaydi, a leader of Arab tribes in Raqqa, who had opposed occupation of Raqqa by the SDF and the US-led coalition, was assassinated.
