TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Syrian forces intensified their attacks against Takfiri militants in the northwestern Idlib province, managing to retake a village there.
Syrian troops succeeded in seizing back al-Musheirifa village on Sunday afternoon following fierce clashes with members of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, SANA reported.
The report added that the clashes also led to the elimination of a number of terrorists, and destruction of their weapons. The remaining Takfiris fled to areas in the southern countryside of Idlib.
On November 14, Syrian army soldiers seized control of the villages of al-Luweibdeh Gharbiya and Tal Khazna in the southern countryside of Idlib after the last remnants of foreign-backed terrorists were purged from the area.
On August 5, the Syrian army declared in a statement the start of an offensive against foreign-sponsored militants in Idlib after those positioned in the de-escalation zone failed to honor a ceasefire brokered by Russia and Turkey and continued to target civilian neighborhoods.
