On October 31, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) foiled a new infiltration attempt by militants in the northern Hama countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

In details, a group of militants advanced towards several positions of the SAA around the key town of Atshan in order to launch attacks. However, the SAA detected the group and targeted it with heavy weapons.

“The [SAA] strikes foiled the infiltration after killing and injuring several terrorists, while the rest run away to their positions,” the SANA’s reporter in Hama said.

This infiltration attempt is a clear violation of the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement on the governorate of Idlib. Under the agreement, a demilitarized zone should be established around Idlib. The zone covers the opposition-held areas in northern Hama.

The militants in northern Hama violated the deconfliction agreement many times in the last two weeks by shelling SAA positions in the region. However, this is the first time they attempted to carry out a ground assault.

    According to Putin : “Everything is ok, Erdogan is working very very hard to implement weapons, sorry, the Russia-Turkey agreement at Idlib.

      Your anti Putin quest is a lost cause, every time you try to speak badly of him you only achieve to make good propaganda for the man.

    putin also said that russia reserves the right to help the SAA fight the terrorists if the attacks continue….
    lets see if he follows through…especially interesting will be russias response when the first SAA get killed by TAF or vice versa..which will happen in the first 3 days if SAA attacks with a ground assault, an assault i might ad is longgggg overdue……….my best quess is that putin with SAA is waiting till TAF fights SDF/YPG in the east….because 1 thing is 100% sure……TAF will defend their islamist brothers
