During a meeting with Russian Parliamentarian Dmitry Sablin, Syria President Bashar Al-Assad announced “positive” military and political changes, Al-Watan Voice reported yesterday.
A statement issued by the Battle Brotherhood Veterans Organisation reported that Al-Assad was advancing towards the strategic city of Khan Sheikhoun and the armed militants in the area were fleeing towards Turkey.
This comes as the Syrian army is making progress in Idlib a month after the start of a wide-scale military offensive to recapture the area. It has so far regained strategic pockets.
The Syrian army – backed by Russian forces – has continued its operations towards Idlib countryside and has widened its grip around Khan Sheikhoun, causing losses among opposition and militant groups in the area.
