Heavy artillery strikes Idlib outskirts as Syrian Army advances

Published on February 4, 2020 by

Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces advanced with armoured vehicles, tanks and heavy artillery deeper into the Idlib countryside, closing in on the town of Saraqib on Monday.

According to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, five soldiers and a civilian staff were killed following the attack led against Turkish troops in the Syrian province of Idlib.

On Friday, President Erdogan warned Ankara was prepared to use “military force” again in Syria if the ceasefire was not respected. The SAA is seeking to regain control of the strategic M5 highway linking the capital Damascus with Aleppo, despite a ceasefire agreement brokered by Russia and Turkey that went into effect on January 12.
