Four Opposition Fighters Wounded in Regime Missile Attack and ISIS Is Busy Again

Four opposition fighters were wounded Monday when regime forces launched a missile attack on their stronghold in the northern province of Idleb.

According to Zaman Al-Wasl’s reporter, the elite 25th Division fired 22 Grad missiles on an array of villages in Jabal al-Zawiya. 

The regime forces and allied Shiite militias also fired on seven villages in western Idleb region.

No civil casualties were reported.

Since the ceasefire agreed between Russia and Turkey on Mar. 5, 2020, the lowest death toll ever was recorded in Syria in nine years. Also, more than 110,000 displaced people have returned home, the Syrian Response Coordinators Team said. 

Meanwhile, a new Turkish observation point was set in the Jabal al-Zawiyah region, bring the total to 57, as reinforcements keep pouring into Idleb province. 

The military point was constructed in the village of Bsamis south of Idleb city. Also, two Turkish military convoys entered western Idleb, carrying tanks, ammunition and fuel. 

Idleb province is home to 3.5 million civilians, according to the United Nations.

In Deir ez-Zor, five civilians were killed by unknown assailants in a desert area west of Deir ez-Zor city, activists said Monday. 

Activists have accused Islamic State (ISIS) militants of carrying out such crimes against civilians in the Syrian desert, known as al-Badiya.

In early April, seven people, including a woman, were also killed by suspected ISIS militants in the desert of Deir ez-Zor.

ISIS has been largely defeated in the country but has continued to carry out ambushes, assassinations and bombings there and still poses a threat along its border.
