Map of military operations in Syria:
Province of Latakia.
The United States Air Force last day cruised in the sky in the east of the Mediterranean Sea – off the coast of the provinces of Tartus and Lattakia. In this direction, in particular, a Boeing P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine patrol aircraft of the American aviation was recorded, a military source was broadcast on Twitter (@GDarkconrad). On the coast in the western part of Syria, two Russian military bases are deployed – the Khmeimim airfield in Lattakia and the base station of the Russian Navy in Tartus. It is assumed that the aircraft were redeployed to the sea coast of the SAR from the airbase of the United States, located in the east of Cyprus.
Militants of the Islamist alliance “Hayat Tahrir ash-Sham” led by “Dzhebhat al-Nusra” on the eve of an attack on the three objects of the gang “Huras Ad-Din” in the south of Aleppo, reported the news agency SMM Syria. Militants “Dzhebhat Fath al-Sham” intend to seize sole control over the entire terrorist enclave in northwestern Syria. At the beginning of this year, the terrorists of Tahrir ash-Sham recaptured vast territories inside the Greater Idlib from the radicals from the pro-Turkish groups Ahrar ash-Sham, Nur Al-Din Az-Zenki and several others.
In the settlement of Sandaf, to the north of the administrative center of the region in the territories occupied by pro-Turkish groups, a civilian was injured as a result of the rupture of a mine, following the main highway on a truck. This settlement is located near the line of contact with the forces of the Popular Self-Defense Detachments (YPG), and therefore the detonating device was more likely to be installed by Kurdish fighters, according to Aleppo Media Center Twitter channel sources.
Province of Deir ez-Zor.
In Hadzhin, south-east of Deir-ez-Zor, an IED exploded by members of the “sleeping cells” of the “Islamic State” exploded again yesterday, causing one local to die, reported DeirEzzor24 media center. Underground IG units are still operational in virtually all areas captured by Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fighters, as the Kurds rarely carry out a qualitative sweep of the “liberated” territories from the remnants of terrorist groups, their explosive devices and other traces of ISIS.
On the outskirts of the “Khadzhinsky pocket” during the past 24 hours, the clashes between the IS and the SDF almost did not abate. According to a military source on Twitter (@HosengHesen), the forces of the “Islamic State” launched a counterattack on the city of Baguz Faukani near the Iraqi border, after which massive skirmishes in this direction continued for a very long time. The parties, in particular, used large-caliber artillery. According to the Twitter resource (@DeirEzzor24), the battles also took place a little to the north, near As-Safafna, which the Kurds are still trying to fight back to no avail.
According to the Jisr TV channel, the US coalition aviation inflicted several dozen attacks on Baguz Faukani and its environs. Bombardment, in particular, has undergone a camp for refugees, reports Telegram-channel Astra Militarum. It is assumed that the Americans could take him for an ISIS campground. The result of this mistake by the United States was the dozens of dead civilians.
Over Maaret An-Numan in the southern part of Idlib yesterday morning, reconnaissance aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces were observed, the opposition news agency Masar Press Agency reported. This city, formerly under the control of Ankara-based militant groups, was recently turned over to Islamists from Al-Nusra, as many local news sources reported. Russian aviation periodically launches pinpoint strikes against key terrorist infrastructure facilities in this area in order to prevent new major shelling and attacks from their side.
According to the Step News Agency, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has launched a series of rocket attacks on the strongholds of jihadists southeast of Idlib. Damage to armed groups is not reported. The fire was fired from the direction of Abu Dali in the direction of the militant positions near the cities of Dzhardzhanaz and At-Tah. Both Tahrir ash-Sham gangs and armed opposition are stationed here. Both those and others often violate the cease-fire, which is what attracts retaliatory actions of the SAR government forces.
To the east of Raqqa, the SDF car, which was moving as a part of a Kurdish patrol convoy, was blown up on the eve. According to the informational Twitter-channel (@smmsyria), it happened in the village of Jarvan, where an explosive device worked at the side of one of the roads, allegedly installed by ISIS militants. Information about possible victims has not yet been reported.
In Raqqa and At-Tabka, in the past 24 hours, protests of citizens against the military presence of the troops of the Western coalition led by the United States and Kurdish forces did not abate. The news resource on Twitter (@smmsyria) unveiled new photos and videos from the rallies, which captured participants in marches with portraits of the legitimate leader of the republic, Bashar al-Assad, as well as demonstrators burning flags of France and the United States.
Province of Hama.
Armed gangs stationed in the Al-Latamin bulge in North Hama, in the past 24 hours again violated the truce established by the Russian-Turkish Memorandum on the creation of a buffer zone in the north-west of the SAR. According to the Twitter resource (@Step_Agency), Islamists fired on the outskirts of Halfaya and the village of Asil, including using the Grad MLRS. In the ranks of government forces there were no losses, but information about possible casualties among local residents is still being investigated.
The Syrian military fired back at militant strongholds on the outskirts of strategic Al-Latamin. In particular, SAA units launched a number of missiles according to the positions of jihadists, the Twitter news channel (@MasarPressNet) reported. In this area, which has remained in the occupation almost from the very beginning of the crisis in Syria, several radical militant groups are based at once, many of which are affiliated with Dzhebhat Fath ash-Sham.
Province of Quneitra.
Israeli military personnel launched several rocket and artillery strikes against the territory of the neighboring Arab Republic. According to the SANA information portal, the hospital in Quneitra was under fire. Another goal of the IDF was the UN monitoring point, located just north of the settlement of Jubbat Al-Hashab. According to preliminary data, no one was injured; nevertheless, the infrastructure of the district suffered serious material damage. Information about the full extent of the damage until it turns out.
