The regime forces renew their targeting to the triangle of Lattakia – Hama – Idlib after sending more military reinforcements to the outskirts of the area

The triangle of west Idlib – north Lattakia – north-west Hama, is witnessing renewed artillery and rocket shelling by the regime forces, where the artillery shelling targeted areas in the villages of Al-Qarqur and Al-Ankawi, in Sahl Al-Ghab in the north-western sector of Hama countryside, the regime forces also targeted areas in Bdama town in the western sector of Jisr al-Shughur countryside, while the regime forces monitored shelling in the past 24 hours, which was accompanied by the continuation of the regime forces to send military reinforcements of material, soldiers, vehicles and ammunition to the south-eastern countryside of Idlib, Sahl Al-Ghab area, and Lattaqia countryside, intersected sources suggested to the Syrian Observatory that these reinforcements are a part of a preparation for a military action that may be carried out in the triangle of Sahl al-Ghab – Lattakia Mountains – Jisr al-Shughur in the incoming few days, and the same sources suggested to the SOHR that the operation in this area has been delayed, as a result of the military operation which started in Al-Suwaidaa against the “Islamic State” organization, as well as the fact that the regime forces which took the control of Daraa and Al-Quneitra, headed towards Al-Suwaidaa province to fight against the organization.

It is noteworthy that the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights received in early June 2018, that members and officers of the Iranian Forces; and of the forces loyal them have withdrawn from Tall Rifaat area and its surroundings in the northern countryside of Aleppo, after Russian – Iranian disagreements about Russian – Turkish consultations to deliver Tall Rifaat to the Turkish Forces and the Syrian military opposition, in return for the withdrawal of the Syrian opposition factions from the triangle of west Jesr al-Shughur – Sahl al-Ghab – the northeastern countryside of Latakia. The withdrawal of the Iranian officers and members loyal to them coincided with the arrival of the Russian military vehicles, accompanied by regime’s vehicles to Tal Rifaat area, where it is suggested that they came to switch regime’s military units in the area, also the sources added that the consultations are underway about completing the opening of Gaziantep road, which connects Turkey to the southern border of Syria with Jordan, and ending the presence of the Kurdish Forces in the northern countryside of Aleppo after their withdrawal from Afrin.
