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.
