Syria: Escalation on the fronts of Idlib, Hama countryside
Local sources report that armed groups targeted the towns of Gorin, northwest of Hama, with rocket launchers.
Two days ago, the Idlib fronts witnessed an escalation and shelling, after a Turkish military convoy comprising dozens of heavy vehicles and armored vehicles entered the Bab Al-Hawa crossing towards Idlib. The convoy then headed to the north of Aleppo.
On Friday, the 'Hay'at Tahrir Al-Sham', 'Ansar al-Tawhid', and the 'National Army' factions announced they targetted Syrian army positions in the Al-Ghab Plain, northwest of Hama, south of Idlib, and north of Latakia, in response to what they described as the Russian bombing of the western countryside of Idlib, which led to a number of civilian deaths and injuries.
According to opposition activists, the air strike targeted a poultry farm on the outskirts of the town of El-Jadida, adjacent to a house, in the western countryside of Idlib, which led to the death of seven people and a number of injuries, only to reveal the identity of four children who were victims during the bombing.
Local sources said that the armed groups used rocket launchers to target the town of Gorin, northwest of Hama, without details on the extent of the damage and casualties caused by the bombing. In return, the Syrian army targetted the area where the rockets were launched on the Ankawi front in the al-Ghab Plain.
A few days ago, the armed groups escalated their bombing of the safe zones within the de-escalation zones, with a large number of the pro-Qaeda factions on the fronts of the Al-Ghab Plain and the southern countryside of Idlib.
