Opposition Groups target government positions in Syria’s Hama, Latakia

IDLIB, Syria (North Press) – The de-escalation zones in Idlib, Hama, and Latakia, northwestern Syria, witnessed mutual bombardments between the government forces and the armed opposition groups on Saturday-Sunday night.

On Saturday-Sunday night, Fateh al-Mubin Operations Room targeted the Syrian government forces’ sites in the town of Kinsabba in Latakia’s northern countryside with heavy artillery shells, confirming direct casualties, local military sources told North Press.

The sources added that the groups of Fateh al-Mubin Operations Room, which includes Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), Jaysh al-Izza, and the National Front for Liberation which are affiliated with the Syrian National Army (SNA), targeted government forces’ positions in Ghab Plain in the western countryside of Hama with heavy artillery shells.

The sources indicated that the bombing came in response to the Syrian government forces’ continuing bombardment on opposition sites in northwestern Syria.

The government forces bombed the fortifications of the opposition groups near Feleifel village in the southern countryside of Idlib, with artillery shells and rocket launchers.

Although the ceasefire between Russia and Turkey has been in place since March 2020, the region is witnessing a military escalation and mutual bombardment between the government forces and the opposition groups.
