Syrian Government Forces Shell Opposition in Northwestern Syria

Regime forces have targeted opposition positions in the Jabal al-Zawiya region, with artillery and missiles reports North Press.

Syrian government forces targeted positions of the Turkish-backed armed opposition groups in the Jabal al-Zawiya region, in southern Idleb Governorate.

The government forces’ bombardment comes amid mutual targeting with the armed groups, which has been taking place in areas that have been part of the de-escalation zone for months. 

On Saturday, Syrian government forces bombed sites of the armed opposition groups in the al-Ghab Plain west of Hama, and Jabal al-Zawiya south of Idleb.

On Sunday, two militants from the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front were killed when they were targeted by government forces in Toffahiyah village north of Lattakia. 

A military source from the armed groups told North Press that the government forces shelled their positions at the opening of the village of Benin, in the Jabal al-Zawiya region, with artillery and missiles. 

The bombardment of the armed groups’ positions in the aforementioned areas resulted in significant material losses of public and private property.
