On November 20, the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) released a video of its artillery units shelling Syrian troops in southeast Idlib.
The footage, which were shot by a drone, show Turkish-backed militants’ fire targeting Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers as they withdraw from the town of Misherfah.
The SAA stormed Misherfah in the early hours of November 20 in the framework of a new ground operation. However, the NFL and its key ally, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), launched a counter-attack within a few hours and managed to recapture the town.
The NFL joined the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA) earlier this year. The group is taking part in the ongoing Turkish-led attack on northeast Syria.
Despite this, the NFL maintained presence in Greater Idlib, where it is actively supporting HTS and other terrorist groups.
