On December 3, units of the Syrian Army retook the villages of Rasm al-Ward, Istablat and Sarjah from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies in southeastern Idlib. The advance was supported by air and artillery strikes on fortifications and military equipment belonging to militants.
These villages were captured by militants during their advance launched on November 30. Since then, an intense fighting has been ongoing in the area.
Recently, the Syrian Army deployed reinforcements in the area. This may be an indication of the upcoming large-scale operation against terrorists in the southern part of Idlib province.
