Opposition factions bombard Syrian government forces in northwest Syria

IDLIB, Syria (North Press) – On Thursday, Turkish-backed Syrian factions intensified their artillery and missile attacks on the positions of Damascus government forces in Idlib and Hama countryside, while the Syrian government bombed the opposition-held areas.

Meanwhile, sources from Fateh al-Mubin Operations Room, which includes Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other armed groups, bombed government forces’ positions east of Idlib.

The bombing targeted Khan Sheikhoun, Basqala, Kafranbel Hazarin, al-Malaja, al-Dar al-Kabira, and al-Zaytoun camp, south of Idlib. The factions also targeted the positions of the government forces in the towns of Maasran and Khan al-Sabil, east of Idlib, with similar bombing.

The sources indicated that the bombardment also targeted the positions of the government forces and their auxiliary forces in the camp and town of Jorin, Ain Salimo, al-Rasif, al-Hassa and al-Jaid in al-Ghab Plain, west of Hama.

Northwestern Syria is witnessing a continuation of mutual shelling between the Syrian opposition factions and government forces, despite the entry into force of the ceasefire agreement signed between Russia and Turkey since March 2020.

The government forces continued their artillery and missile bombardment on the villages and towns of al-Fatira, Kafr Aweed, Sufuhun, Kansafra, Benin and Ain Larouz in Zawiya Mountain, south of Idlib, according to military sources.

The sources indicated that the bombing also targeted military sites in the villages and towns of Qastoun, Shaghouret, Ziyarah, al-Enkawi, and the outskirts of the town of Zayzoun in  al-Ghab Plain, west of Hama.
