The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) ruled the skies over the Idlib Governorate, as they targeted a number of militant sites at the cities of Binnish, ,south Saraqib, Fayloun, Silqeen, and west Kafr Nabl with their powerful airstrikes that rained hell over the enemy combatants.
With the SAAF bombarding a number of sites in the province, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and the National Defense Forces (NDF) repelled the second straight infiltration attempt by the conglomerate of Islamist groups that comprise of “Jaysh Al-Fatah” into the village of Al-Mastouma from three axes points.
Jaysh Al-Fatah has been unsuccessful in their four attempts to break into Al-Mastouma since the arrival of the SAA’s Tiger Forces; it has resulted in the enemy combatants’ loss of the Brick Factory to the east of the village.
According to a military source, at least 100 militants have been killed in the last 48 hours while trying to capture Al-Mastouma; this includes a large number of foreign fighters from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra.”
Despite a quiet Sunday, the SAA and NDF expect another attack from Jaysh Al-Fatah, as the two parties begin their second week of clashes south of Idlib City.
