Donate

Late on January 25, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reached the outskirt of the city of Ma`arat al-Nu`man in southeast Idlib after capturing the nearby town of Talmenes.

The SAA stormed Talmenes in the afternoon and managed to secure the town following a few hours of clashes with al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies.

Army troops are now less than 4km away from Ma`arat al-Nu`man’s city center, the main target of the ongoing large-scale operation. The city is the biggest urban center in southeast Idlib.

The SAA resumed its ground operation in southeast Idlib a day earlier, capturing several towns, villages and hilltops to the east and southeast of Ma`arat al-Nu`man.

Syrian and Russian warplanes are now targeting the outskirt of Talmenes. This suggests that the army may advance further in the upcoming hours.
