The sources said that the army will soon launch the second phase of its large-scale operation West of the newly-freed Abu al-Dhohour airbase to put an end to the long-run siege imposed by terrorist groups on Fua’a and Kafraya North-East of Idlib province.
The sources further said that the army men deployed West of Abu al-Dhohour airbase are 40 km away from Fua’a and Kafraya now.
In the meantime, other units of the army are preparing to kick off another large-scale operation in Eastern Idlib to storm ISIL and Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) positions that have come under the siege of the army in a region as large as 1,100 sq-km among Hama, Idlib and Aleppo provinces.
Relevant reports said on Monday that the army troops seized full control of the town of Abu Al-Dhohour West of Abu al-Dhohour military airport.
Meantime, a battlefield commander also pointed to the Syrian army’s advances in the surrounding areas of Abu Al-Dhohour military base, and said that after restoring full security to the region, the Abu Al-Dhohour military airport will soon be used by the Syrian army for its operations.
