TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Syrian forces launched an attack against Al-Nusra Front terrorists in the northwestern province of Idlib in response to the militants’ breaches of a de-escalation zone agreement.
Al-Nusra militants’ positions in the areas of Jarjanaz, Talmens, Tahtaya, and Oum Jalal in the southeastern countryside of Idlib were pounded by Syrian artillery on Friday, SANA reported.
The report added that the raids resulted in the destruction of the terrorists’ hideouts and vehicles. Large groups of them lost their lives in the attack.
The attack reportedly came after the terrorists violated the de-escalation zone agreement reached following a meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi on September 17.
The Syrian government’s attacks on terrorists’ positions in Idlib and Hama come in the wake of reports that members of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, together with militants from the Turkistan Islamic Party in Syria, are mounting chemical warheads on more than a hundred missiles in cooperation with European experts in Idlib.
