Military sources reported that the Syrian Army is attempting to expel Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) from the outskirts of the important town of Abu al-Dhohour.
In the meantime, the Al-Nusra has maintained presence around the Abu al-Dhohour Airbase, making it difficult for the Syrian Army to begin rebuilding the destroyed facility.
However, once the Syrian Army is able to expel the remaining Al-Nusra terrorists from the region, they will then halt operations at this axis in order to concentrate on more pressing fronts.
Field sources reported on Thursday that the Syrian army dispatched a large number of Special Forces and military equipment to Southeastern Idlib to prevent the ISIL terrorists’ possible advance in the region.
They noted that the army stopped operations in the region to reinvigorate security in Abu al-Dhohour airbase, adding that the army soldiers were preparing to open a new front against the terrorists in Eastern Idlib.
