Following the liberation of the Rashidin 4 district, Syrian government forces took control of the village of Khan Asal in western Aleppo. Both these areas had been in the hands of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and its allies.
Now, units of the Syrian Army and Iranian-backed militias are working to clear Mughayr, Kafr Jum Sharghi and nearby points from remaning members of al-Qaeda-linked groups. As soon as this is done, the Syrian Army will get a full control of the M4 (Aleppo-Damascus) highway for the first time in the approximately 8 years.
Meanwhile, the Turkish Defense Ministry continued spreading its fairy tales in Twitter. Just recently, it claimed that 51 ‘regime fighters’ were ‘neutralized’, and 2 tanks, an gun position and an weapon depot belonging to the Syrian military were destroyed in Idlib clashes. It remains unclear where Ankara takes this numbers. The most likely scenario is that it just made up these numbers.
İdlib bölgesinden alınan son bilgilere göre 51 Rejim unsurunun etkisiz hale getirildiği, 2 tank, 1 uçaksavar mevzii ile 1 mühimmat deposunun imha edildiği, 1 tankın da ele geçirildiği öğrenilmiştir.https://t.co/GmXaDNMzIP
