BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Syrian and Russian forces have sent reinforcements to the Idlib province this week after the jihadist rebels took over almost all of the Idlib province from the Turkish-backed rebels.
According to a new report from the Fars News Agency, the Syrian and Russian military convoys were dispatched the demilitarized zones along the provincial borders of the Hama and Idlib governorates.
“Field sources in northern Syria reported on Thursday that a Russian military convoy, consisting of several armored, military, engineering and personnel carrier vehicles, have been sent to the strategic village of Salba in the Southern parts of the town of Hayalin in Western Hama,” the Fars News report said.
They added that the Syrian Army also sent several military convoys to northern Hama and southern Idlib, noting that over 250 forces of the Syrian Army’s fifth Division along with extensive military equipment, including 15 military vehicles and tens of trucks carrying weapons and equipment, were dispatched to the strategic town of al-Moshirfeh in the southeastern parts of the town of Abu Dali in southeastern Idlib.
No further details were added.
Earlier this week, the Syrian Arab Army sent a large convoy of troops from the 100th Artillery Regiment to northern Hama after Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham seized much of the Al-Ghaab Plain.
