BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is giving the militants until the end of Eid (August 16th) to withdraw from the demilitarized zone in northwestern Syria, an official source from the military told Al-Masdar News this morning.
According to the source, the Syrian Arab Army will continue to target the militants inside the demilitarized zone until they withdraw.
He added that the Syrian Arab Army has concentrated their strikes on the towns of Kafr Zita, Al-Latamnah, Khan Sheikhoun, and Zakah in northern Hama and southern Idlib.
Prior to this, the Russian Ministry of Defense gave Turkey 24 hour to force the militants in the demilitarized zone to withdraw from the area.
Despite this demand, it is very unlikely that the militants will withdraw from the demilitarized zone, as Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has already refused to remove theri forces from the area.
