Earlier, the Russian Reconciliation Center and the Ministry of Defense of Syria reported that the militants killed dozens of Syrian soldiers in a large-scale attack in southeastern Idlib.

These claimed were refuted by several pro-government and even opposition sources, which said that the region didn’t witness any ground attack in the last few days.

Earlier this month, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) amassed two strike forces in southeast Idlib and in southwest Aleppo. However, the army is yet to carry out any serious operations in these regions.

    I don’t see how they can refute the claims when there are videos of dozens of SAA bodies flying through the air.

    This is not good I think it’s time the SAA and the Russians stopped worrying about civilian casualties so much and start using the heavy weapons more.
