The Syrian army (SAA) has launched a ground offensive between Aleppo and Idlib. Objective: to take Barah. Violent clashes are currently taking place between the soldiers and Hayatr Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) on the border between the two provinces
Maxi clash between the Syrian army (SAA) and the local militias of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) on the Marnaz axis, west of Aleppo. The soldiers of Damascus, after a series of artillery bombardments on rebel positions, launched a ground offensive in the area. In parallel, they began to strike two villages between the south of Idlib and Hama. Objective: to break through the lines of defense of local jihadists to focus on Barah, the nerve center of the quadrant. By the way, they also transported some excavators and bulldozers (one vehicle was destroyed near Saraqeb). Violent machine gun and heavy weapon fighting is currently taking place at several points along the provincial border. HTS, in fact, is trying to repel the enemy, even if it is equipped with limited forces.
Meanwhile, the SDF and Inherent Resolve capture 19 Isis jihadists in Deir Ezzor in one shot
Meanwhile, in the east, the SDF have captured 19 Isis militiamen in a single operation. The maneuvers took place with the cooperation of Inherent Resolve and involved Dashisha and Suwar at Deir Ezzor. The jihadists were part of some IS cells that for some time had begun to sow terror in the quadrant with attacks on both the Arab-Kurdish forces and the population. Not surprisingly, the local inhabitants played an important role in the raids. In fact, they provided valuable information on the locations where the terrorists were and their movements. Moreover, in the raids, along with numerous weapons and ammunition, various documents and electronic devices were also seized, deemed of primary interest by intelligence. These, in fact, were immediately transferred for an in-depth analysis.
