Shelling renewed on "demilitarized area" after Kremlin confirmed "inevitability of military action"

Rocket bombardment on the so-called demilitarized area resumed today, following statements by the Russian presidency that it refused to "rely on negotiations with the terrorists in Idlib" and stressed "the inevitability of military action" in a warning message to Ankara.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights noted that the regime forces renewed the rocket shelling this morning on Khan Sheikhon city in the southern sector of the Idlib countryside and al-Sakher village in the northern sector of Hama countryside, which are included in the so-called "demilitarized" areas.

Local sources have spoken of a cautious calm in the "demilitarized" areas in Aleppo, Idlib, Lattakia and Hama, since after midnight on Monday - Tuesday until the morning where the bombing renewed again.

in turn SANA agency of the regime said, "Units of the Syrian Arab Army targeted movements and points of terrorist groups concentration in Khirbet Naqos and Janaibla and Tal Sakher villages in the northern countryside of Hama."

The agency added, "The army units carried out intensive operations on the sites of terrorists of " the Turkmenistan Party " in the outskirts of al-Ziyara town of eastern Sehel al-Ghab and killed and wounded them.

During the past few days, the regime's forces have stepped up shelling of southern Idlib, especially after the tripartite summit in Sochi between the presidents of Turkey, Iran and Russia.

During the talks, the Russian-Turkish dispute over the solution in Idlib appeared, where Russia expressed its dissatisfaction with the Turkish procrastination in the implementation of the Idlib agreement.

Turkey is seeking through this procrastination, according to observers to re-dissolve mercenaries of Jabhat al-Nusra in a new organization with the aim of including them to the so-called Constitutional Commission, but Moscow rejects this and believes that Ankara must dismantle these organizations and hand over their positions to the regime forces.
