Syria regime forces enter Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib

Syrian army troops and their allies entered Khan Sheikhoun in northwest Syria, advancing against militants in the town where ground battles raged on Monday night, a monitor and an opposition source said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based war monitoring group, said the army seized the town’s northern and eastern districts.

The source, from one of the opposition factions there, said pro-government forces entered only part of the town and militants were waging fierce battles to fend them off.

Earlier on Monday, Syrian state media said that a Turkish convoy loaded with munitions crossed into northwest Syria, to help insurgents fighting a government advance in the town of Khan Sheikhoun.
