Following the liberation of Umm Zaytunah and Kafr Tab from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) last night, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces have pushed towards the villages of Abedin and Madaya in southern Idlib.
According to some sources, SAA units already entered these villages and clashes are ongoing inside them.
Meanwhile, the Russian Aerospace Forces continued their bombing campaign eliminating militants’ infrastructure in the southern part of the Idlib zone. These strikes play an important role limiting militants’ ability to deploy reinforcements, including equipment, to the frontline.
