Terrorists escalate actions in Idlib, Syria

Terrorists escalate actions in Idlib, Syria

Damascus, Feb 5 (Prensa Latina) Terrorists operating under the umbrella of the Organization for the Liberation of the Levant (Tahrir Al-Sham, HTS), escalated their attacks in the northern Syrian province of Idlib, media outlets reported.

According to the sources, the group announced that jihadists recently carried out over 11 suicide operations against Syrian regulars on the front lines in the areas surrounding the provinces of Idlib, Hama, Latakia and Aleppo.

They added that the most recent attack took place on Saturday in the town of Kobani in the northeast of Latakia, where at least five suicide bombers were killed and a soldier lost his life, in a failed action by the radicals.

In turn, military sources reported that the extremists are taking advantage of the foggy and snowy weather conditions to launch their sudden attacks against military positions.

On February 2nd, eight soldiers, including two officers, were reported killed as a result of attacks against positions of the Syrian armed forces in Maret al-Nouman, in Idlib.

According to analysts, this increase is intended to hit the efforts being carried out to achieve rapprochement between Syria and Turkiye.

The national army managed to liberate 56 percent of Idlib during its operations in 2020, but the jihadists still control the rest, where they hold hundreds of thousands of civilians as human shields.
