De-escalation zone | Regime forces bombard positions in Jabal Al-Zawiyah and Jabal Al-Akrad and clash with factions in Sahl Al-Ghab

Syrian Observatory activists in the Putin-Erdogan area have reported seeing artillery shelling by regime forces since early hours on Saturday morning, targeting areas in Al-Bara, Fulayfil, Safohan and Bannin in Jabal Al-Zawiyah in the southern countryside of Idlib, and Kabbana in Jabal Al-Akrad in the northern countryside of Latakia.

Meanwhile, regime forces and factions operating in the region have trade medium and heavy machine gunfire on Al-Amqiyah frontline in Sahl Al-Ghab, North-west of Hama. No casualties have been reported. While Russian reconnaissance craft has flown over the “de-escalation” zone for hours.

Yesterday, SOHR reliable sources reported that the regime forces and their loyal militants on one side and the opposition factions on the other, exchanged fire with heavy machine guns on the frontlines in Kebanah district in Jabal Al-Akrad in north Latakia countryside.

On the other hand, regime forces have fire missiles on areas in Al-Futirah, Fulifil, Safhoun, Benin and the outskirts of Kansfara and Al-Barah areas in Jabal Al-Zawiyah in south Idlib countryside. But, no casualties have been reported yet.

This comes amid daily attacks in “Putin-Erodgan” areas.
