Media: Syrian army has surrounded the town of Saraqib in Idlib from three sides

This city is of strategic importance and is located at the intersection of the highways Latakia-Aleppo and Damascus-Aleppo.

Units of the Syrian army approach to the city of Saraqib (Idlib province) where there is an outpost of terrorists from group “Jabhat al-Nusra” (it is forbidden in the Russian Federation). This was reported on Wednesday by the Al Hadath TV channel.

According to him, the city is surrounded from three sides. It is said that only 1 km separates the Syrian military from Saraqib.

On Tuesday, the Syrian state agency SANA reported the release of several settlements to the east and north of Saraqib by government forces. It was noted that the Syrian military was trying to block the city and force the enemy to surrender.

Saraqib is of strategic importance and is located at the intersection of the Latakia-Aleppo and Damascus-Aleppo highways. Gaining control of the city by government forces may accelerate the defeat of armed groups in the north.

Idlib is the only region in Syria that has remained in the hands of illegal armed groups since 2012. In 2017, a northern de-escalation zone was established there, where militants who refused to lay down their arms in eastern Ghut and southern Syria moved. There are 12 Turkish army observation posts within the province.
