The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched on November 14 what appears to be a limited ground operation in the Greater Idlib region.
According to pro-government sources, army units advanced from their positions in the southeastern Idlib countryside in the early morning with support from the Russian Aerospace Forces.
These units liberated the town of Luwaybidah and the nearby Khaznah Hill following clashes with al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its Turkish-backed allies.
Heavy clashes are reportedly taking place in the outskirt of the town of Misherfah, which is being pounded by the SAA artillery.
HTS and its allies have been violating Greater Idlib ceasefire on a daily basis for months. The new ground operation is aimed at deterring these terrorist groups, or even completely neutralize them.
