Syrian Army enters the city of Saraqeb in Idlib countryside

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Syrian official media said on Thursday that units of the Syrian army entered the strategic city of Saraqib in the Idlib governorate, which is under the control of the armed opposition, and began to “comb them” and remove mines.

The progress was the latest in a major campaign launched in December with Russian support in Idlib, northwest Syria, to restore the last opposition stronghold.

State television showed footage of groups of the army roaming the empty streets of the town, which was devastated by intense Russian and Syrian airstrikes that have killed hundreds of civilians since the campaign began in recent months.
