The Syrian Army and its allies have liberated 110km2 from radical militants in the Syrian province of Idlib since February 4 morning. The former militant strong points of Sheikh Edris, Balisah, Tal Mardkih, Kafr Amim are within the liberated area.
With this advance, government troops secured the entire southeastern countryside of the militant stronghold of Saraqib, which Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other radical groups use as a key hub on the crossroad of the M4 and M5 highways.
Turkey recently deployed there several units supported by military equipment. Nonetheless, if the town is fully encircled this will not help to rescue al-Qaeda members there. According to some pro-government and pro-militnat sources, “rebels” are now fleeing from the western countryside of Saraqib.
