Syrian Army Liberates 12 Towns, Villages from Militants in Idlib’s Countryside

Syrian army forces have managed to liberate on Tuesday twelve settlements from militants in the eastern countryside of Idlib province.

Assault units of the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces Division have taken control of another twelve towns and villages in the eastern Idlib province en route strategic Abu Duhur city and its nearby airbase area, AlMasdar News reported.

The latest reports from sources at the front-line identify the settlements as Al-Khuraybah, Al-‘Oja, Al-Hardanah, Al-Harmalah, Rabdah, Tell al-‘Oja, Karatin Shaghirah, Al-Rabi’yah Burnan, Umm Miyal, Umm Muwaylat al-Shamali, Zifr Kabir and Zifr Saghir.

The latest advance – which began on the night of Monday to Tuesday – shows that the Syrian Army most likely aims to encircle the city and airbase of Abu Duhur instead of attacking both places directly. This is most likely being done to encourage militants to withdraw from the highly strategic Abu Duhur area without putting up any fight.
