The militants of “Hayat Tahrir ash Sham” and allied jihadist groups are strengthening their positions in the mountainous Latakia. As the “opposition” Telegram channel @Syria_freedoom reports with reference to local sources, the militants are creating a network of underground communications in the vicinity of Klaba and Kabana, probably preparing to enter into armed confrontation with Syrian government forces.

Jihadists also continue to inflict mortar strikes on CAA-controlled territories along the line of demarcation. According to Telegram-channel @ Syria_2_4, this time the targets of the shelling were the area of ​​Mount Abu-Ali and the settlement of Alhor.

In the west of the province of Aleppo, as in Latakia, there has been an increase in violations by militants operating in the de-escalation zone of Idlib. The last few armed groups systematically shell the residential areas of the city of Aleppo, which has already led to casualties both among civilians and among Syrian military personnel. According to a source in Twitter (@watanisy), despite the fact that the government troops in each case opened fire in the areas from which the bombardment was fired, only 4 servicemen from the ranks of the CAA were killed in the last 24 hours, and several civilians were injured.

According to Telegram-channel @ NewsTerkey1, near the city of Basartun, located in the east of the de-escalation zone “Idlib”, a column of the armed forces of Turkey was seen. According to unconfirmed reports, she delivered a large batch of weapons and ammunition to one of the pro-Turkish groups occupying the area.

“Democratic forces of Syria” continue to conduct an operation against the “Islamic state” 1 on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. Despite the support of the countries of the international coalition, for several months the Kurdish armed formations have not been able to clear a large bulwark of terrorists in the city of Khadzhin. According to the Euphrates Post, a reinforcement force SDF and a group of US servicemen arrived in the Abu Hammam district of the Khasaka province.

Kurdish “People’s Self-Defense Forces” (YPG), which constitute the majority of the US-backed “Democratic Forces of Syria” (SDF), continue to use children in combat, although international law prohibits non-state armed groups from attracting minors, Human Rights Watch reported. YPG, despite promises to stop this practice, continues to recruit children for military training in Kurdish-controlled areas. Special indignation of humanitarian organizations is caused by the fact that the “People’s Self-Defense Forces” mobilize children from refugee families into their ranks without informing their parents about it.

The activation of the “sleeping cells” of the “Islamic State” on the territories occupied by the “Democratic forces of Syria” in the province of Rakka compels the United States of America to strengthen its military presence in the region. This is done, among other things, by training recruits in US-controlled formations. As the source in Twitter (@ liongeneral19) writes, in a camp near the village of Ayed-Kabir, under the guidance of American instructors, about 100 militants of the “Democratic forces of Syria” train. They are taught how to shoot from different types of weapons and carry out demining.
