Ceasefire violations | Clashes erupt between rebel and jihadi groups and regime forces in southern Idlib
SOHR sources have reported that clashes erupted, in the early hours of Saturday morning, on the frontlines of Al-Ruwayha in the southern countryside of Idlib between regime forces and loyalists on one hand, and rebel factions and jihadi groups operating in the area on the other. The clashes come as a part of regime forces’ attempts to advance into the area, but the jihadists and rebels managed to repel the attack. The clashes were accompanied by exchange of shelling, but no casualties have been reported.
On Thursday, SOHR sources reported rocket attacks by regime forces, which targeted positions in Kherbet Al-Naqous and Al-Ankawi in Sahl Al-Ghab in the north-western countryside of Hama, amid flights by reconnaissance drones over Idlib. On the other hand, areas in al-Faterah, Sfuhen, Fulayfel and Bayanin in Jabal al-Zawiyah in the southern countryside of Idlib came under the regime’s rocket attacks in the early hours of Thursday morning, but no casualties were reported.
