Battles for Syria | January 27th 2020 | Reports from Southeast Idlib Front

The jihadist militants are suffering heavy losses on the ground and in their ranks around the Ma’arat Al-Nu’man front as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continues sweeping through several areas near the Idlib Governorate city.

Led by the 25th Special Mission Forces Division (formerly Tiger Forces), the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture three more towns south of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, following the withdrawal of the jihadist forces from this area.

According to a field source near the front-lines in the Idlib Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army troops captured the towns of Al-Hamidiyah, Suhyan, Babouleen, and Beseida, as their forces cutoff the jihadist rebels from their southern supply route to Ma’arat Al-Nu’man.

The Syrian Arab Army is also working to envelop the Turkish military’s observation post in the town of Hesh. A source in this area told Al-Masdar that the Syrian Army has captured two towns near Hesh, putting them within sight of the observation post.
