On December 18, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) liberated the village of Ruwaydah from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in southern Idlib, according to pro-government sources.
According to pro-opposition sources, the SAA and the NDF were able to take control over the village only thanks to massive air and artillery strikes in the area.
The advance followed a series of other gains made by government forces in northern Hama and southern Aleppo. Previously, the SAA and the NDF liberated the villages of Rashadiya, Rasm al-Bidh, Rasm Sayyal, Rasm Kibar, Zilaqiat, Zilen and Mashrifa.
Momentum is good.
Very good news.
Eliminate the ISIS pocket , before it “grows” .
ABC news just reported that alqaeda based in idlib cooperated with Assad. Poor HTS now they’re tossed between rock and hard place and fakenews just can’t save them.
Violence, momentum, speed.
