The National Front for Liberation (NFL) destroyed on January 16 and 17 several positions and vehicles of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) using anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).
In the southeastern Idlib countryside, members of Turkish-backed militant groups destroyed a vehicle and a battle tank near the town of Tell Khatra. They also targeted a military position in the outskirt of the town of al-Tah.
NFL militants also targeted two fortified positions of the SAA near the Castlo road and in the district of Halab al-Jadida around Aleppo’s city center.
These ATGM strikes were carried to support al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), whose militants launched a series of successful-counter attacks in southeast Idlib in the last two days.
Last year, the NFL joined the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA). However, the group maintained a presence in Greater Idlib. The group’s militants are now fighting side by side with terrorist groups, benefiting from Ankara’s support.
