Syria in Last 24 Hours:
Army Reinvigorating Positions in Northern Lattakia
Rasa - The Damascus Army sent more troops and military equipment to Northern Lattakia on Saturday to fortify their positions after reports said Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorist group was readying for a heavy offensive in the province.

RNA - The Syrian army sent a large number of forces and large amount of military hardware to Jabal al-Akrad and Jabal al-Turkmen regions in Northern Lattakia to reinvigorate the government forces' defense and combat capabilities.


Meantime, the Syrian army continued its military advances in other parts of Syria over past 24 hours.


Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army's operations in provinces across Syria.




The Syrian Army sent more troops and military equipment to Northern Lattakia on Saturday to fortify their positions after reports said Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at terrorist group was readying for a heavy offensive in the province.


The army dispatched a large number of forces and military hardware to Jabal al-Akrad and Jabal al-Turkmen regions in Northern Lattakia to reinvigorate the government forces' defense and combat capabilities.


In the meantime, local sources said that the army has gathered a large number of forces in Kinisba region to face a possible heavy attack by Tahrir al-Sham terrorists.


Field sources had previously said that Tahrir al-Sham would possibly attack the army strongholds in Jabal al-Akrad and Jabal al-Turkmen.


In the meantime, the army opened heavy fire at terrorists' movements in Bdama township West of the town of Jisr al-Shughour, inflicting major losses on the militants.  




The terrorist groups were forced to agree with the Syrian Army's reconciliation terms to hand over the remaining regions under their control in the Eastern countryside of Dara'a city after the fall of Nasib border-crossing to the government forces on Saturday.


Representatives of the Damascus government and the Russian delegation and militant groups in Busra al-Sham region East of Dara'a city agreed to hand over control of the entire towns, townships and villages in the Eastern countryside of Dara'a city to the Damascus forces.


Based on the agreement, the terrorists must hand over all their heavy weapons to the army, and then state bodies and institutions will revive operation in the newly-freed regions after the implementation of ceasefire in the region.


The terrorists that lay down arms are allowed to apply for amnesty and the rest should leave the region for Idlib along with their family members.


According to the newly-endorsed agreement, the terrorists must deliver all checkpoints along the border with Jordan to the army and the ground must be paved for displaced people to return home.


The terrorists felt trapped and forced to accept the army's terms after government troops freed the Nasib border-crossing and militants in several regions ended battle with the army.




Terrorists of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at, deployed in Northern Hama, are showing deep concern after the continued advances of the Syrian Army troops in the Southern province of Dara'a, field sources said on Saturday.


The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted the sources as reporting that Tahrir al-Sham has urged residents of several villages and townships in Northern Hama to leave their regions in the next 48 hours under the pretext of launching large-scale offensives against the army in region.


The news agency further said that residents of Kafr Naboudeh region engaged in harsh arguments with Tahrir fighters as the terrorists tried to turn their region into a heaven to launch attacks on safe villages and towns, adding that Tahrir gunmen try to force people to leave Kafr Naboudeh and other regions in Northern Hama to prevent their endorsement of the nationwide reconciliation plan.


A large number of regions in Southern Syria are accepting the peace agreement with the army that is advancing rapidly near the border with Jordan, the agency added.


In the meantime, the army soldiers exchanged heavy fire with Tahrir al-Sham near Zalin checkpoint in Northern Hama and repelled their attack. 


Hasaka-Deir Ezzur


Residents in tribal regions in Eastern Syria continue to oppose occupation of their lands by US forces after the latter failed to persuade villagers to join the US-led coalition, a media outlet reported on Saturday.


The Arabic-language website of Russia's state news agency, Sputnik, quoted Sheikh Mohammad Daham, one of the most well-known tribal leaders in Eastern Syrian, as saying that the US forces and their allied Kurdish militias have launched a fresh wave of arrests against villagers on the banks of Khabour River.


The report further said that the US forces and the Kurdish militias are aware of the strong tribal support for the Damascus government, adding that the US forces and their allies are trying to disarm the villagers in areas stretching from South of al-Shadadi region in Hasaka province to Deir Ezzur in Eastern Syria in order to deflate popular resistance and uprising that once occurred in Iraq.


It went on to say that the coalition has demanded Commander of Deir Ezzur fighters Abu Khouleh al-Khabil to invite tribal leaders and elites of Sour region in Deir Ezzur, but none attended the meeting.


Daham further told Sputnik that the tribal fighters have detonated an arms and ammunition depot of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces in al-Sina'ah region along the highway to Hasaka in Northern Deir Ezzur, adding that the tribal fighters have threatened to carry out more attacks against the coalition.




The Syrian Army troops managed to restore security to an international highway to Jordan after imposing control over Nasib border-crossing and after militants in more regions signed the peace agreement with the government in the Southern province of Dara'a.


The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted a field commander of the army as reporting hat the army restored security to the Damascus-Amman international highway after Nasib and Um al-Mayadeen in Southern Syria came under the nationwide reconciliation plan.


According to Fars News Agancy, The Arabic Sputnik further said that the army soldiers have deployed in several points along the highway.


People in Nasib township poured into the streets and hoisted government flags after the country's army made major achievements in Dara'a province, the report said, adding that the army men have deployed at Nasib boder-crossing now.


It said the terrorists have either destroyed or looted the passageway's facilities and infrastructures before retreat.
