Late on January 15, the Syrian Army and its allies resumed offensive actions in southern Idlib in response to the recent series of ceasefire violations by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other militant groups.
Accordng to pro-government sources, government forces retook from militants the villages of Barsah and Nouhiya, west of the Abu al-Duhur airbase controlled by the Syrian military.
If tensions in the Idlib zone continues growing, the Syrian Army may resume its full-scale ground operation against militants in the area.
