Syria, the truce in Aleppo-Idlib over: new SAA-HTS clashes

The brief truce between the Syrian army (SAA) and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) between Aleppo and Idlib is over. New clashes on the border areas between the two provinces and in the Barah quadrant, also involving the Russian military

The brief truce between the Syrian army (SAA) and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) between Aleppo and Idlib is over. In the past few hours, the SAA has attacked jihadist positions in Sfuhen, Kafr Oweid, Al-Faterah, Kansafrah, Kaddourah, Saan, Al-Ruwayha and Bayanin. They responded shortly after with snipers, who targeted the soldiers on the Kafr Taal axis. In addition, HTS attacked a delegation of Russian forces on a mission to the Fatira axis, injuring some soldiers. The group was to provide mentoring to the Damascus soldiers on how to advance towards Barah. The city, in fact, has been the target of the SAA for months, which only recently managed to advance on the ground, getting closer. Local militiamen, however, have consequently increased the defenses in the quadrant to keep the enemy at bay.

Meanwhile, Turkey is still pushing towards Kurdistan and aiming at the Menagn air base. Objective: to remove it from the SDf and incorporate it in the buffer zone

Meanwhile, Turkey continues its expansion towards Kurdistan. After transferring troops and assets to villages along the M4 west of Tal Tamr, Ankara has begun to infiltrate men in eastern Syria. The latest attempt took place in Kaljabrin, north of Aleppo. In addition, the allied militias of the TAF attacked the villages of Al-Malikia, Maranaz, Shawargha and the castle of Shawargha, clashing sporadically with the SDF. Not surprisingly, all the clashes took place near the stretch of the motorway that goes from Kilis to the Syrian city and in the area of ​​the Menagh air base. This is strategic for both Turkey and the Kurds. The former want it to incorporate it into the buffer zone and remove it from the latter, who use it to transport weapons and ammunition to the front line.
