The Turkish Army has abandoned the areas under its control to monitor terrorists' movements in the demilitarized zone as tensions have intensified in Northern Syria, Arabic-language media outlets said.
MWFpress - The Turkish Army has commenced evacuating its observation posts in Jabal Shahshabou in Northwestern Hama, the Arabic-language version of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted local sources in Northern Syria as saying.

The report said the Turkish Army helicopter are evacuating forces from the region.

It pointed to the Syrian Army's response to the Ankara-backed National Liberation Front (NFL) terrorists' attack on the government forces' military positions in this region, and said that the observation posts have not come under any missile or artillery attacks by the Syrian Army.

Meantime, Turkish sources claimed that four Turkish military forces were injured during the Syrian Army's artillery attack on a Turkish Army observation post in Idlib province, but all of them were transferred for medial treatment.

The Arabic-language SANA news agency, meantime, quoted a military source as saying that the terrorists stationed in Idlib have dispatched a large number of militants and military equipment to Hama and Lattakia over the past several days to prepare them for attacking the safe zones and military points there.

The source noted that a large number of terrorists have been sent to Mourek region in Northern Hama.

Meantime, the Syrian Army's artillery units pounded the movements of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorists in the town of Kafar Naboudeh and al-Amiqeh in Northwestern Hama and the towns of Ha'as, Safouhen, Ahsam, al-Janoudieh and al-Hobait in Southern Idlib to the safe zone in Northern Hama, destroying their military equipment and inflicting heavy losses on them.

In a relevant development earlier this week, the terrorists stationed in Hama, launched tens of rocket attacks on residential areas in the town of al-Saqilbieh and the village of al-Khandaq in Sahl al-Ghab in Western Hama, killing and injuring several people.

In response to the terrorists' attacks, the Syrian Army's artillery and missile units heavily pounded the terrorists' military positions in the town of al-Sahrieh in Shahshabou in Northern Hama, destroying their military positions and hideouts as well as killing and injuring a number of them.

The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper, meantime, reported that the Syrian and Russian air forces launched heavy attacks on terrorists' military positions and movements in al-Maziq Qala and al-Havash in Western Hama and around al-Bashireh village in Jisr al-Shoghour in Western Idlib which resulted in the destruction of several key targets, including an arms and military equipment depot.

In Western Aleppo, the Syrian Army troops engaged in heavy clashes with Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorists who were trying to penetrate into the army's military points from Family House axis, killing a large number of militants and destroying their military vehicles while making the remaining terrorists retreat from the battle scene.

In a relevant development late last month, the Syrian Army warded off the terrorists' attacks in Northern Syria, while foiling their offensives in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib, the Arabic-language media outlets said.

The terrorists, stationed in al-Ais town near Ankara-controlled observation post in Southwestern Aleppo, fired rockets and mortar rounds at al-Hazer town in Southwestern Aleppo, killing and wounding several civilians, the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper reported.

It noted in the meantime that the Syrian Army units also foiled heavy attacks by the terrorists over the last month in Khalseh, al-Hawiz and Khan Touman at military positions in al-Harisheh and Mohit al-Thanieh in Southwestern Aleppo, inflicting heavy losses on them.

Meantime, the Syrian Army's artillery units backed by the Russian and Syrian air forces pounded the terrorists' military positions and movements in Kafar Zita, Horas Abedin, al-Latamaneh, Lahaya, Hasraya, al-Mostariheh, al-Karkat in Jabal Shahshabou, Kharbeh al-Naqous in North and Northwestern Hama, destroying several positions, hideouts and military vehicles as well as killing and injuring a number of them.
