The local population in Syria’s Northwestern Idlib province is calling on government troops to free the region as tensions have intensified in territories occupied by Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front), a provincial official said.


The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted Governor-General of Idlib Fadi Sa’adoun as saying on Tuesday that a large number of people have called for an immediate Syrian army operation to liberate Idlib from terrorists’ control.
