BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a late night advance in the southeastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate on Sunday, resulting in the capture of one town and several nearby points.

According to the latest report from the battlefield, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture the town of Al-Naqeer near the jihadist stronghold of Kafr Sijnah after a fierce battle with Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF).

Some preliminary reports from the Idlib Governorate claim the Syrian Arab Army has now captured Kafr Sijnah; however, this is still not confirmed by the military.

The Syrian Arab Army’s current priority in southeastern Idlib is to seize the last remaining areas under jihadist control in the Jabal Al-Zawiya region; these sites are located near the Aleppo-Latakia Highway (M-4), which its capture is the main objective of their entire northwestern Syria campaign.

Hope object will not be retaken by counter attack. SAA do carry on the offensive and do send the Turk HTM mercenaries and their 700.000 dependants back to Ankara.

no they want bcuz kaban jisr sighur and idlib city is the last defense. they can pull war more longer with that . if they leave those mountain and kaban will fall it means all of idlib has fallen within month. SAA strtgye is to capture M$ and ll mountain in idlib south of M4 then they will make ceasfire. like this north of M4 will be overcrowded by jihadist. then ether they will fight each other or they will be easy target of SAA.

@Chauhan. Putin has brought additional jets recently and the Cornovirus is in Iraq,Israel,Iran,Jordan, and 1 in manjib,Syria. I think the Ceasefire might be postponed. Putin will destroy for sure but how I do not know.

As the momentum is with the SAA they can keep the Turks off balance before the latter has time to dig in.
