BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was able to score a new advance in the eastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate on Wednesday after foiling a counter-offensive from the Turkish-backed militants at Saraqib.

Backed by Hezbollah, the Syrian Arab Army managed to enter the town of Afis on Wednesday afternoon, following an intense battle with the Turkish-backed militants and their allies west of Saraqib.

According to a source from the army, the SAA and Hezbollah have seized almost all of Afis, leaving only a small part of the town still under the control of the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF) and their jihadist allies.

The Syrian Arab Army is now working to secure the entire town before making another push towards the key town of Nayrab, which is situation northwest of Saraqib.

In addition to their advance in eastern Idlib, the Syrian Arab Army has also resumed their operation in the south by targeting the militant positions near Sufahan and Kafr ‘Awaid in the Jabal Al-Zawiya region.

If there is serious air support, Idlib city might be besieged within a few days.

Prefiero el norte, la ciudad de Sarmadá para cortar suministros que ingresan desde Turquía.

I think they will likely sweep the south first and then encircle Idlib city before taking it district by district like they did with Allepo.

Tienes razón, parece que solo fuera disuasivo y no de aniquilamiento de terroristas.
