Drone Attack Targeted Syrian Army Troops In Southern Idlib

Late on September 25, a drone attack targeted Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in the southern part of the Greater Idlib region.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a number of drones, which were launched by militants, struck army positions near the towns of Kafr Battikh and Dadikh. No material or human losses were reported.

The London-based monitoring group claimed that this was the second such attack this week. The first attack allegedly targeted SAA troops in al-Jub al-Hamar in the northwestern countryside of Hama a few days ago.

“The factions are working to develop drones and training personnel to use them in case regime forces attempted to advance [in Greater Idlib],” the SOHR’s report reads.

Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, which controls Greater Idlib, was reportedly behind a series of drone attacks that targeted Russian forces and SAA troops in the last two years. The majority of the terrorist group’s attacks were a complete failure.

These attacks are a blatant violation of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib. The ceasefire, which was put in place on March 5, appears to be on the brink of collapse.
