Syrian War Report – June 28, 2019: 2 Soldiers Killed In Fresh Shelling On Turkish Observation Post

On June 27, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) attacked positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Qasabiyeh and Qiratah near the administrative border between Hama and Idlib provinces.

According to pro-government sources, the SAA eliminated at least 3 units of military equipment, including a battle tank, belonging to militants. In own turn, the NFL targeted a van carrying troops and a truck armed with a 57mm gun near Tell Huwash with anti-tank guided missiles. The Turkish-backed group also used rocket launchers to shell SAA positions in northern Hama.

Meanwhile, a Turkish observation post near the town of Shir Mughar came under artillery shelling. The shelling reportedly took place as a convoy of reinforcements was preparing to depart the post on its way back to Turkey. The June 27 incident became the fifth shelling that targeted the Shir Mughar outpost in the last two months.

While formally the Idlib de-escalation zone agreement and the ceasefire regime are designed to separate the so-called moderate opposition from terrorists, Turkish-backed groups continue to cooperate with terrorist organizations like Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in their battle against the SAA. This Turkish behavior endangers Turkish troops deployed near the contact line because militants use Turkish observation posts as safe areas where they can hide after attacks on SAA positions.

2 ISIS members attacked a position of the Syrian Democratic Forces near the town of Hajin in the Euphrates Valley. According to pro-Kurdish media outlets, the terrorists infiltrated the area from the SAA-controlled territory.

ISIS confirmed the fact of the attack through its news agency Amaq, but said that one militant only was involved and 10 SDF members were killed. This not realistic claim may indicate that the terrorist group just attempted to use these reports to spread own propaganda.

Despite this, the security situation on the eastern bank of the Euphrates remains complicated. The SDF-held area appears to be infiltrated by multiple ISIS cells that carry out attacks on civilian and SDF targets on a constant basis.

    That’s absolute bullshit SF and you know it. Your methods of reporting are now becoming extremely desperate and utterly pathetic! Maybe that’s why your funding is now dwindling?

    But SouthFront still keeps reporting on it as if it is fact!

    Turkey is supposed to eliminate the terrorists not to protect and join them, stupids.

      Many supposed wrongly this. You must realize that Turkey is a NATO member, and Israel-USA-NATO have the goal of destroying Syria. Russia has allowed Turkey to do what is doing due to strong commercial-economical ties. From the mere begining Turkey has given support to terrorists (weapons, hospitals, tactics), has been smuggling Syria oil from terrorists to sell it in Europe and Japan, Smuggling Syria industrial parts, and smuggling archeology elements. All of these things are well known by Russia.
