The Syrian and Russian air forces carried out a large number of airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate on Sunday, as their warplanes heavily targeted the positions of the the Al-Qaeda-linked Hurras Al-Deen group.
Witnesses said the warplanes struck the western outskirts of Idlib city and that there was heavy artillery shelling in the mountainous Jabal al Zawya region in southern Idlib from nearby Syrian army outposts. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
Due to the steepness of the mountain Kabani is located on, it is very difficult to advance into the town from any axis around the town.
The only success of terrorists has now been achieved in defense of a significant visa, Tal Saker, which is key to the defense of Habit City. The losses of terrorists are in hundreds and government forces only in tens. It is also evident that terrorists increasingly use Russian anti-tank systems Konkurs, Kornet and Fagot to avoid interference, because it is known that in the Sarab system the Syrian army found a useful counter measure against the US developed system.
According to a source from the 42nd Brigade, the Syrian Arab Army is now in full control of Point 1154 after they forced Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham to retreat further north.
