Turkish-led Forces Fail To Capture Naryab As Syrian Army Makes More Gains In Greater Idlib

The Syrian Army has repelled an attack by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other radical Idlib groups on the town of Naryab in the western part of Idlib province.

The attack supported by Turkey started early on February 11 as a part of the wider campaign to capture Saraiqb. Turkey provided the attack with a limited artillery support and a Syrian military helicopter was shot down by some ‘mysterious’ MANPAD.  The Turkish Defense Ministry even claimed in an official statement via Twitter that the town had been captured. However, Turkish-backed forces failed to make and secure any real gains.

Pro-government sources claim that Naryab was a trap and the Syrian Army ambushed militants that entered the town. Regardless, the failure of the attack is another major fail for the Erdogan government in Idlib.

Additionally, government forces reportedly entered  the areas of Khan al-Asal and Kafr Nouran, where clashes between the Syrian Army and militants erupted. Earlier, the Syrian Army liberated the Rashidin 4 district in western Aleppo from militants.

Meanwhile, airstrikes of the Syrian Air Force hit the area near Turkish positions near the village of Qaminas in eastern Idlib. Nonetheless, reports about supposed Turkish casualties in the strike remain unconfirmed.

The US is already here to support innocent Turkish troops attacked by Assad forces in Idlib:
