Russia destroys bases of militants exiting Syria's Al-Tanf

TEHRAN, Apr. 06 (MNA) – Russia’s Aerospace Forces have carried out a strike on strongholds of militants who had exited the Al-Tanf area in Syria, deputy chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties in Syria, said.

"The Russian Aerospace Forces’ strikes have taken out two bases of militants who had left the Al-Tanf area and were holed up in hard-to-reach mountainous areas of the Amour Range in Homs province and al-Bishri in Deir ez-Zor province," Major General Yury Popov said during a briefing.

Drones belonging to the US-led so-called counterterrorism coalition have violated the deconfliction protocols of December 9, 2019, seven times and made nine unauthorized incursions into Syria’s airspace by F-15 fighter jets, A-10 Thunderbolt attack aircraft and an MC-12W intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft, TASS reported.

In addition, over the past 24 hours, five shelling attacks by the terrorist groups against the Syrian government forces’ positions had been recorded in the Idlib de-escalation zone. A Syrian soldier was killed and three more were wounded in Latakia and Idlib provinces as a result of sniper fire opened by terrorists.

According to the 2017 agreement among Iran, Russia, and Turkey as the guarantor countries of the Astana Peace Talks, four safe zones were established in Syria.

Three regions came under the control of the Syrian army in 2018, but the fourth region, which includes Idlib province in northwestern Syria and small parts of Latakia, Hama, and Aleppo provinces, is still under the control of terrorist groups and adversary groups.

At the end of the summer of 2018, the leaders of Russia and Turkey reached an agreement in Sochi, Russia, during which Turkey promised to remove or disarm the terrorists based in this region without bloodshed.
