Yesterday in town Sarmada Tahrir al-Sham militants blocked the way for those wishing to move from the southern part of Idlib province to Turkey. It is reported that the border checkpoint of Bab al-Hawa is also blocked, but opposition sources deny this. In addition, the Tahrir al-Sham group blocked the M-4 highway between the cities of Jisr al-Shugur and Idlib, thus preventing the Turkish forces from establishing a new observation point.
Meanwhile, the SAA shot down a militant drone near the base in Tel Rifat (Aleppo Prov.). Clashes between militants and Syrian militias occurred in the area of the settlement Jalban (Prov. Idlib) southwest of the city of Abu ad Duhur. The Danish Ministry of Defense announced its intention to send troops to the northeast of the Syrian Republic to support the forces of the international coalition in the fight against ISIS terrorists.
