Syria: tension rising in Idlib after months of truce – sources
Between government forces and militants supported by Turkey
(ANSAmed) – BEIRUT, 21 SET – After months of relative calm, tension is rising again in northwestern Syria along the line of the front between government forces, backed by Russia, and armed militants supported by Turkey, sources on the ground said, confirming reports by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The area experienced a diminution in violence after a military truce was reached by Russia and Turkey last March.
The sources added that over the past 48 hours several air raids and artillery fire, attributed to Russian and Syrian forces, were reported in the central areas of the Idlib region and in the southeastern area of the region of Aleppo.
The areas are under the control of anti-regime militants backed by the Turkish armed forces. More Syrian government air raids were registered in the northeastern region of Latakia at the border with Turkey. (ANSAmed).
