BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 P.M.) – The jihadist rebel defenses in rural Idlib are collapsing at a rapid speed, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) steadily pushes towards the key city off Saraqib.
Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army seized another five towns from the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, building a large buffer-zone around the Abu Dhuhour Military Airport.
According to a military report from this front, the Syrian Arab Army captured the towns of Tuwayhinah and Al-Husseiniyeh, along with the Al-Tuwayem Farms, Al-Woqod Hills, and Al-Sultan Hills.
This latest advance puts the Syrian Army just a couple kilometers away from the large town of Ras Al-‘Ayn in the eastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.
In addition to the massive advance on the ground, the Russian and Syrian air forces have conducted at least 200 airstrikes over the Idlib countryside in the last 48 hours.
The Syrian Army is hoping this advance will help them reach Saraqib city by the end of next week.
