Syrian Army Gives Crushing Response to Terrorists' Continued Attacks from Demilitarized ZoneThe Syrian army troops stationed in areas near the town of Baridij in Northern Hama attacked terrorists' strongholds in regions near the villages of Tal Housh, al-Janabareh, Tal Othman, Ma'arkabeh, Atshan and Murak on Thursday after they came under attack, killing and wounding several of them and destroying their military equipment and vehicles.

Meantime, other Syrian army units Northwest of the town of Maharadeh in Northern Hama targeted the moves of Tahrir al-Sham and Kata'eb al-Izzah in Abu Ra'eideh and regions near the town of Hasraya, killing and wounding a large number of terrorists.

Also, in Southeastern Idlib, the Syrian army forces targeted the Turkistani and Tahrir al-Sham terrorists' positions with heavy artillery and tank shelling in al-Tineh, Khatarah, al-Forjah, al-Katibeh al-Mahjoureh, al-Mashik, Tal Wasit and Western Jisr al-Shaqour, destroying several of their positions and leaving heavy tolls on them.

The terrorists' refusal to implement the Sochi Agreement to establish a demilitarized zone is pushing the army to initiate its long-waited assault on militants in Idlib that had been put on hold due to the Sochi Agreement.

Colonel Mar'ei Hamdan, a Syrian military expert, was quoted by the Arabic-language website of Sputnik news agency as saying last month that Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at is in control of nearly 70% of towns and villages in Idlib province and makes provocative moves against the Syrian army, adding that the army's commitment to decrease tensions is not lasting forever.

He added that the Syrian army has so far repelled all attacks by terrorists against its positions and inflicted heavy damages on them, noting that the army is now necessitated to come out of the defensive mood to retake control of Idlib.

Hamdan said that Tahrir al-Sham will resort to a full-scale military operation against the Syrian and Russian armies soon, after rejecting the Sochi agreement last October, which leaves no room for ceasefire or disarmament anymore, and underlined that the Syrian army's battle against Tahrir al-Sham is inevitable.

Meantime, the Turkey-backed Ahrar al-Sham and National Liberation Front (NLF) terrorist groups has also dismissed the Russian-Turkish Sochi agreement and is preparing for military operations against the army in Northern Syria, calling for a coalition with Tahrir al-Sham.

Tahrir al-Sham and other allied terrorist groups have not left the demilitarized zone two months after the Sochi agreement and have instead reinvigorated their strongholds and targeted the army positions every day.

Relevant reports said that the Turkey-backed NLF had put its gunmen on alert to launch a heavy offensive against the Syrian army in the demilitarized zone in Idlib province.
