The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken full control of the city of Al-Houbate in the south-west of Idlib province after a fierce battle with jihadists this early morning, according to Al Masdar news portal. The battle for the village began last night when special forces of the SAA “Tiger Force” recaptured several villages and farms located to the west of the city from the radicals. According to military sources, the Syrian army managed to eliminate a large number of militants of the Jeysh al-Izza and Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham groups. Now, from Al-Hubayt, the SAA will be able to move deep into the southern area of Idlib from the border with the Hama province.
The Syrian air force hit the jihadists’ shelters in the outskirts of the villages of Kafr Ain, Madaya and Um-Zeytun, as reported by Step News Agency.
Militants continue to build up forces in the southern part of the Idlib de-escalation zone in Syria. 470 terrorists and heavy military equipment were sent to the province, as reported at a briefing by the head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in the SAR, Major General Alexei Bakin. Terrorists Tahrir al-Sham, the Islamic Party of Turkestan (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation) and other organizations draw their forces to the line of contact.
The militants of Tahrir al-Sham attacked the positions of the SAA near the village of Sukaik using a “jihad mobile” controlled by a suicide bomber. A military source, Al Masdar, reported a powerful explosion, but there were no reports of casualties in the ranks of Syrian troops.
According to the Euphrates Post agency, in the city of At-Tabka last night, an employee of the so-called “military police” SDF, Asayish, was killed. In the evening, an unknown person threw a hand grenade under the feet of a Kurdish soldier patrolling the territory. In addition to him, several more civilians who were nearby were injured, among them one girl. The militants of the Islamic State are suspected of attack.
The militants from the Fatah al-Mubin operational staff issued a statement that allegedly they had shot down a Syrian military tank with a missile shell in the vicinity of the village of Al-Atshan, according to Step News Agency.
Meanwhile, Syrian Air Force military helicopters launched air strikes on the positions of the Jaish al-Izza fighters on the outskirts of Kafr Zeta, as this source also reports.
A series of bombings and attacks on Kurdish patrols continues in Hasakah. In the morning it became known about the SDF car bombing in the village of Humma in the north of the province near the border with Turkey. According to a Twitter source Hüseyin Bozan, there were four Kurdish fighters in the car, all of whom died on the spot as a result of a powerful explosion. The terrorists from the so-called “sleeping cells” of the Islamic State are suspected of installing an explosive device in a car.
Two trucks with ammunition and military equipment from the international coalition arrived at the position of the “Democratic Forces of Syria” (SDF) in the city of Ras Al Ain, according to a source on Twitter Radio Al Kul.
