The Syrian Army is preparing for a major military operation in Idlib province in Northwestern Syria, Arabic-language media outlets said.
The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper reported that the Syrian Army’s helicopters have been dropping communiques over villages in the surrounding areas of Idlib asking people to evacuate those regions before the Army kicks off its massive liberation operation.
Meantime, the Syrian Army’s artillery and missile units heavily pounded military positions and movements of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) and other terrorist groups in the towns of al-Hobait and Kafr Naboudeh in Northwestern Hama, destroying several of their military vehicles and hardware as well as killing and wounding a large number of the militants.
On Tuesday, the Syrian Army foiled attacks by Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at aimed at retaking control of their already lost areas in Northwestern Hama and Southern Idlib.
The Syrian Army engaged in fierce clashes with Tahrir al-Sham terrorists who had attacked the government forces’ military positions in al-Hamimiat and al-Jabin axis.
A large number of invading terrorists were killed and wounded in clashes with the Syrian Army and others retreated.
The Syrian Army’s artillery units, meantime, targeted the terrorists’ military positions in Kafr Zita, al-Bavizeh, al-Latamaneh, al-Arbaeen, al-Zuka and al-Hobait, killing and injuring several of them.
The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper also reported that the Syrian Army killed the entire members of a group of Tahrir al-Sham terrorists, including their military commander namely Osama Hussein al-Dib, in an ambush operation.
