Turkish-Backed Militants Claim They Repelled Syrian Army Attack In Southern Idlib

Donate

The National Front for Liberation (NFL) claimed on November 15 that its militants had repelled an attack by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southern Idlib.

In a press released, the Turkish-backed group said that the failed attack targeted the village of Tell Dam in southern Idlib, claiming that several Syrian service members were killed or injured.

Pro-government activists and sources in the SAA denied that such an attack took place. No losses in the army’s ranks were reported.

A day earlier, the SAA launched a ground attack in southeastern Idlib. Army units, backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces, captured the town of the town of Luwaybidah and the nearby Khaznah Hill.

Despite joining the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA), the NFL maintained a presence in the Greater Idlib region, where its militants are supporting Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups.
