Syrian Army Liberates Strategic Town of Sinjar from Al-Qaeda Terrorists

Syrian Army Liberates Strategic Town of Sinjar from Al-Qaeda Terrorists

Alwaght- Syrian army have liberated on Sunday town of Sinjar, establishing control over a key stronghold of terrorists in the country’s northwestern province of Idlib.

A military source, requesting anonymity, said government troops and their allies could liberate the town in the Maarrat al-Nu'man district of the province, located roughly 300 kilometers north of the capital, Damascus,  after members of the Takfiri Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorist alliance were defeated, Press TV reported. Tahrir al-Sham is former al-Nusra Front the al-Qaeda terrorists group’s branch in Syria.

The source added that Syrian army soldiers and their allies could also retake the towns of Mutawasita, Khiara, and Kafrya al-Ma'ara.

Sinjar would serve as a key launching pad for further military operations in Idlib province.

The town is only 14 kilometers from the key Abu al-Duhur Air Base, whose recapture would enable the Syrian army to regain the upper hand in carrying out airstrikes against militant positions in Idlib.

The developments came only a day after the media bureau of Syria’s Operations Command announced in a statement that government forces and their allies had managed to establish complete control over the villages of Khwein al-Kabir, Rasm Sham al-Hawa, Niha and Qaliat al-Tawibiyah in addition to Zarzur town following fierce clashes with terrorists from the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, in the southern part of Idlib province.

Meanwhile, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Sunday the army had taken more than 95 villages in Idlib and Hama provinces since October 22.

“Battles have shifted now to the northwest of Sinjar after the Syrian army and its allies controlled the town,” the Britain-based monitor said.
