The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the regime forces' shelling and targeting the region of the so-called demilitarized zone is still continuing.

The bombardment targeted places in Kafrzitta and al-Lattamna in the northern countryside of Hama, the bridge of Beit Ras and al-Huwiz in al-Gab plain in north-west of Hama, and other places in Khan Sheikhon, al-Zerzur, al-Farja, al-Khwain and Sahal in the southern and southeastern countryside of Idlib.

While two rockets fired by the Turkish mercenary gangs landed on Halab al-Jadidah (New Aleppo) neighborhood of the western part of Aleppo city under the control of the regime forces.

The Syrian Observatory also monitored the bringing of more logistical reinforcements to the so-called control points in Idlib Governorate and the surrounding countryside. Several trucks entered from Bab al-Hawa border crossing loaded by pre-fabricated posts, caravans and concrete blocks.

Escalation continues in the so-called demilitarized zones following the Russian-Turkish meetings, during which the dispute between the two sides to find a solution for Idlib emerged despite the promotion of joint patrolling in the region.

The Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed in September to form a demilitarized zone of 15-20 km depth in the governorates of Aleppo, Idlib, Hama and Lattakia. Under the terms of the agreement, heavy weapons and mercenaries were to be withdrawn from that area until October 15, while the Turkish guarantor of the mercenaries did not apply the terms of the agreement.

By the beginning of 2019, the mercenaries of Hayet Tharir al-Sham (previously Jabhet al-Nusra classified on the international terrorism list) had expanded their control in the area where the Turkish surveillance points were located amid Turkish silence, prompting Russia to say repeatedly that Turkey had not fulfilled its obligations.
