Syrian army carried out qualitative operations against terrorists: MoD
The operations come in response to the flagrant violation committed by terrorist organizations on the Malaga axis in the southern countryside of Idlib.
The Syrian Ministry of Defense confirmed that in cooperation with the Russian Air Forces, units of the Syrian armed forces operation in Idlib and Hama countryside carried out qualitative operations against terrorist organizations over several days.
In a statement, the Ministry said the operations come in response to "the flagrant violation committed by the terrorist organizations on the Malaga axis in the southern countryside of Idlib."
The statement also pointed out that the qualitative operations come in light of the repeated attacks carried out by armed terrorist organizations supported by some regional and international parties on safe villages, towns, and sites, as well as points of the Syrian army adjacent to the de-escalation zones in the Idlib and Hama countrysides.
The Syrian Ministry of Defense announced that the operations led to the destruction of a large number of terrorist headquarters, operations rooms, and warehouses, including weapons, equipment, drones, and communications devices.
It highlighted that 111 terrorists were killed in the operation, most of them belonging to the so-called Ansar al-Tawhid organization, which is affiliated with Al-Qaeda, and more than 80 other terrorists were injured.
