More than 110 casualties in about 95 hours since the collapse of ceasefire in “Putin – Erdogan” area as the regime forces control 4 towns and villages north Hama

The killings returned to escalate in the so-called “Putin – Erdogan” area, which stretches from the northeastern of Latakia mountains to the northwestern suburbs of Aleppo city and passes through the countryside of Hama and Idlib, after the collapse of the 3.5-days ceasefire agreement during which clashes and airstrikes were ceased and the percentage of killings decreased significantly, but the Syrian regime’s pretext was the jihadi factions’ shelling for Hmeimim Airbase; the main Russian airbase in Syria, and this led to the collapse of the ceasefire and the return of military operations and intensive aerial bombardment, where the regime forces supported by Russia continued their intense ground and aerial attacks in the northern countryside of Hama, and they managed to control al-Arba’in, al-Zakat, al-Sakhr, and al-Jisat since the collapse of the agreement, and became on the threshold of the last major stronghold of the factions north of Hama: the towns of Kafr Zita and al-Lataminah.
