Militants of the National Front for Liberation (NFL) carried out on January 21 a series of attacks on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) personnel and positions in Greater Idlib using anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).
Two of the attacks targeted a position and a gathering of Syrian troops in the towns of al-Tah and Abu Dafr in Idlib’s southeastern countryside.
The third attack targeted a fortified army position in the town of Attera in the Turkmen mount in the northern Lattakia countryside.
Several Syrian service members were reportedly killed or injured in these ATGM strikes. The exact number of the SAA’s losses was not revealed by any source.
Earlier this week, several opposition sources reported that Turkish-backed militants in Greater Idlib have received a new batch of U.S.-made TOW anti-tank missiles (ATGMs) from the U.S. or Turkey. These claims are yet to be verified.
