On October 5, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) foiled another infiltration attempt by militants in the northern Hama countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

In details, a unit of Jaysh al-Izza, a key ally of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), was trying to reach several positions of the SAA around the villages of Maarkaba and Lahaya in order to launch attacks. However, a reconnaissance unit of the SAA detected the militants and clashed with them forcing the unit to withdraw.

The SAA foiled a similar infiltration attempt a day earlier. In response, SAA artillery and rocket forces struck several positions of the militants in the northern and northwestern Hama countryside.

These hostile acts by Jaysh al-Izza, HTS and other radical groups pose a serious threat to the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement on the governorate of Idlib. Under the agreement, the opposition-held areas in northern Hama are considered a demilitarized zone and the militants are not allowed to launch any attacks.
