TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Syria’s army expanded its retaliation operations against al-Nusra terrorists in the countryside of Idlib and Hama, managing to cut off major supply routes used by the militants in the two provinces.
In response to breaches of a de-escalation zone agreement, the positions of the terrorists in the areas of Kafr Naboudeh, Abdin and Kafr Sajna in the countryside of Idlib and Hama were pounded on Monday, SANA news agency reported.
During the raids, major supply routes used by the Takfiri militants were cut off. Dozens of terrorists lost their lives in the attacks.
The counterattacks came after the militants attempted to target army posts in the areas and in fact 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 in September.
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 so-called Turkistan Islamic Party in Syria, are mounting chemical warheads on more than a hundred missiles in cooperation with European experts in Idlib.
