A group of extremists tried to advance towards an army site in Deir Sunbul village, in southern Idlib province, but were ambushed by the military forces that carried out violent clashes with the attackers, killing at least 12 of them, an operations officer said.

Simultaneously with the first attack, hundreds of armed men attacked regular troops in Al-Fatira village, south of the Jabal Al-Zawiya mountain plateau. According to the officer, the military forces destroyed with their heavy machine guns three motorcycles used by the radical groups in their raid.

In the same context, the Russian Ministry of Defense stated that the terrorists of the so-called Front for the Liberation of the Levant, formerly Al-Nusra Front, launched 26 attacks in the last few hours, which led the national army to respond with missiles and artillery against the sources of those attacks.

The Syrian army managed to liberate 56 percent of Idlib in its operations during 2020, so the radical groups currently control less than half, where they retain hundreds of thousands of civilians as human shields.
