Damascus, Jan 21 (Prensa Latina) Terrorist groups have continued to violate the ceasefire and recently attacked the positions of the Syrian Arab Army in the northern province of Idlib, 330 km north of this capital.
According to local media, radicals of the pro-Turkish National Front for Liberation and of the Organization for the Liberation of the Levant, former Al-Nousra Front, armed wing of Al-Qaeda in Syria, launched two simultaneous offensives against military positions in the towns of Jarjnaz, Abu Dafneh, al-Teh, Tal Khatra and Tal Yeref in southeast Idlib.
The intensity of gunfire and the use of suicide-driven bomb vehicles forced the Syrian military to withdraw from some positions that were later recovered in a counterattack without any change in the control map.
At least 18 casualties were reported among the military and at least two dozen extremists were killed in the offensive.
The attack by the extremists is a violation of the ceasefire announced by the Syrian army on January 13 to allow the exit of civilians and prevent them from being used as human shields.
Meanwhile, bad weather conditions resulted in calm in the fronts west and south of the city of Aleppo, where at any time the Syrian Army could launch a terrorist offensive, according to analysts.
