Battle In Greater Idlib Continues: SAA Artillery Pounds Turkish Forces

Illustrative image

Late on June 10, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) targeted Turkish forces on two fronts in the northwestern region of Greater Idlib.

The army artillery shelled a Turkish post near the town of al-Bara in the southern countryside of Idlib. At the same time, Syrian soldiers launched anti-tank guided missiles at a Turkish bulldozer and a vehicle near the town Qarqor in the northwestern Hama countryside.

No casualties were reported as a result of the SAA strikes, which were a response to the shelling of government-held areas by Turkish forces.

The Turkish military and its proxies targeted a number of towns and villages in southern Idlib and northwestern Hama in response to a series of Syrian and Russian strikes on militants’ positions in Greater Idlib.

The strikes killed three commanders of al-Qaeda’s Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib, along with six militants.

The ceasefire in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey on March 5 of last year, is still holding up. Nevertheless, the situation in the region is far from being stable. Militants, led by HTS, violate the ceasefire on a daily basis. Turkish forces have been supporting them.
