Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the regime forces continued the ground shelling operations after midnight on Sunday and Monday morning on the remainder of the area called "De-escalation" in the Russian-Turkish-Iranian expression, targeting areas in Jabala, Maarat Harmah, Hesh, Kafranbel, Karsa, and al-Tah in the southwestern countryside of Idlib.
The shelling coincided with the overflights of the warplanes and reconnaissance in the same area, where this morning, warplanes hover over the eastern part of the region without carrying out any raids.
These developments come hours before the so-called "guarantors of Astana" in Ankara to discuss the escalation in the Idlib region and its surroundings, despite the existence of a ceasefire, which is punctuated by heavy shelling daily.
In this context, Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper quoted sources as saying that Russia will not show any soften with Turkey during today's meeting regarding HTS mercenaries and the overall situation in the area of "De-escalation".
The Syrian Observatory has spotted yesterday a ground bombardment targeting the town of Kafranbal south of Idlib with high-explosive rockets Also, the city of Maarat al-Nu'man, the towns of Telmens, Maarat Harmah, Sheikh Mustafa, Hass and Kfroma were bombed in the south and southeast countryside of Maarat, In addition to Kebaneh axis in the northern countryside of Lattakia, and other areas of al-Ziyara and al-Qarqour in Sahal al-Ghab in the north-western countryside of Hama, without any information about casualties.
Sources have spoken earlier that the ceasefire truce is a Russian deadline for Ankara to implement conditions including the eradication of HTS mercenaries (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) and its so-called Salvation Government, as well as the regime's control of international trade routes passing through Idlib Turkey and its mercenaries have refused to do so and have maintained their presence there.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stuck two days ago to areas occupied by his country through the so-called "observation points" and said that his troops will not withdraw from them, warning the regime forces against any attack on the region.
