Militants “Tahrir al-Sham” destroy the Syrian army armored vehicles in Latakia. This was reported by a military source of the Federal News Agency (FAN) in Syria Ahmad Marzouq.

Kurdish militants invented a fake about al-Baghdadi’s cowards to justify the United States. The leader of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Mazlum Abdi, told reporters in the morning that the American special forces allegedly managed to eliminate the leader of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, thanks to the work of Kurdish intelligence, according to the news agency Baladi News. According to Abdi, the Kurdish spy managed to get al-Baghdadi’s “underwear fragment and blood sample,” thanks to which his whereabouts were established.
Recall, according to a statement by US President Donald Trump, the US Air Force and Special Forces soldiers allegedly carried out an operation to capture the number one terrorist in Idlib province, however, he made self-bombing, not wanting to give up. So far, the veracity of all statements is in great question, since the States have not produced any evidence.
Mazlum Abdi also claims that not without the help of Kurdish intelligence agents was allegedly liquidated in Aleppo, an al-Baghdadi associate, Emir Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, also known as ISIS “spokesman”. In the city of Gerablus, coalition helicopters carried out another landing operation and arrested family members from Iraq, accused of being involved with ISIS terrorists.
In the village of Suluk, the explosion of a bomb mounted on a motorcycle injured two civilians, according to the Twitter channel. On the eve of the “internal security” forces of the pro-Turkish militia, a mined motorcycle and a car were neutralized. Kurdish SDF radicals are suspected of planting bombs.

According to the representative of the central military police station, there are no injuries among the Russian military. An unidentified device was blown up near the armored vehicles of the Russian Federation. Most likely, the detonation was carried out with the aim of disrupting the meeting between the military of Russia and Turkey, however, the meeting with representatives of the Turkish side was held as planned.
The withdrawal of the armed units of the SDF from the territory where the security corridor was to be created was prematurely completed. The Syrian border guards and the Russian military police entered the territory, as reported by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in talks with Armenian Defense Minister David Tonoyan.
