On January 24, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) responded to new violations of the Russian-Turkish demilitarized zone agreement in the northern Hama countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
The state-run agency said that the army artillery shelled positions of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in the towns of al-Janabirah and Tell Bazzam and positions of Jaysh al-Izza in the towns of al-Lataminah and Hissraiyah.
“The army’s operations led to the killing of several terrorists and the injury of others, some of their weapons and positions were also destroyed,” the SANA’s reporter in Hama said.
HTS and Jaysh al-Izza are responsible for the majority of the violations in the demilitarized zone around the northern governorate of Idlib. The two groups are considered close allies.
A day earlier, Russia and Turkey agreed to work on additional measures to implement the deconfliction agreement. The details of these measures have not been revealed yet.
