New raids on rural Idlib, Hama while patch of regime's control expands

Russian and Syrian warplanes have renewed raids on the southern Idlib and Hama north. The regime extended its control to 7 towns and villages.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored Russian warplanes carrying out 14 raids on areas in the town of Habait and the village of Qasabiya rural Idlib south and the village of Sharia in the countryside of north-west Hama, in conjunction with violent clashes between the forces of the regime and mercenary groups belonging to Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and belonging to Turkey in the axis of Sharia, between two sides.

The observatory confirmed that the number of towns and villages that the regime forces and militants loyal to them seized has risen to 7 which have been able to enter and control since this morning, following the withdrawal of the mercenaries of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham Organization, namely "Qalat Madiq, Karakat and Talawash, Altwina, Shariah, Sheikh Idris and Bab al-Taka" situated in Sahel al-Ghab in the countryside of Hama in the north-west, and Mount Shashbo in the western suburb of Hama.

While these operations come with the cessation of air strikes almost completely from nine o'clock in the morning until now except for Russian aircraft conducting an air raid on the village of Anakawi in the north of the west of Hama, and the severity of the ground bombardment is limited to shells fired by the regime forces on Idlib countryside occasionally.
