|Militants kill 33 pro-Assad fighters in north-west|
|[DAWN] At least 33 pro-regime fighters were killed on Sunday in attacks mounted by jihadist groups near Idlib province, in the deadliest day in six months for loyalist forces, a monitor said.|
Twenty-seven fighters were killed in two attacks by Ansar al-Tawhid jihadists, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
"Five jihadists were also killed," said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the -based monitoring group.
Ansar al-Tawhid has ties to the larger Hurras al-Deen group, which is also active in the area of northwest Syria. Both are considered semi-officials franchises of Al Qaeda in Syria.
The area of Idlib and small parts of the adjacent provinces of Hama and Aleppo are mostly controlled by the rival Hayat organization.
HTS is led by fighters who formerly belonged to Al Qaeda’s ex-affiliate in Syria.
The attacks by Ansar al-Tawhid were carried out against regime positions in Masasna, a village in Hama province, the Observatory said.
A military source quoted by state news agency SANA confirmed soldiers had been killed and in the attacks on their positions near Idlib province.
Loyalists forces had killed some assailants, the source added without giving figures.
The foreign ministry said Syria "will not allow and those who are behind them to carry on with their attacks against innocent civilians and the armed forces".
In Latakia province, also northwest of the capital, at least six pro-regime fighters were killed in attacks by HTS later on Sunday, the Observatory said.
According to Abdel Rahman, the latest spate of attacks caused "one of the highest casualty figures among regime ranks since the Putin-Erdogan deal".
He was referring to an accord struck in the Russian resort of Sochi by Russian President and his counterpart Under the Sept 17 truce deal, would exert its influence over anti-regime groups in the Idlib region to have them pull back fighters and heavy weapons from a demilitarised zone.
It was meant to stave off a planned offensive by the regime and its Russian backers that aid groups feared could spark the eight-year-old Syrian conflict’s worst humanitarian crisis to date.
The government assault on the last major bastion of rebel forces has been held off but the deal’s provisions have not been implemented.
Since the Sochi agreement, HTS has consolidated its grip on Idlib province.
|Qaeda-Linked Syria Group Kills 21 Regime Forces|
|[AnNahar] A Syrian jihadist group linked to al-Qaeda killed 21 regime and allied forces Sunday near Idlib province, in one of the deadliest breaches of a six-month-old truce deal, a monitor said.|
"At dawn, 21 fighters from the regime forces or allied militia were killed in an attack by Ansar al-Tawhid jihadists," the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
"Five jihadists were also killed," Rami Abdel Rahman, the director of the -based monitoring group, said.
Ansar al-Tawhid has ties to the larger Hurras al-Deen group, which is also active in the area. Both are considered semi-officials franchises of al-Qaeda in Syria.
The area of Idlib and small parts of the adjacent provinces of Hama and Aleppo are mostly controlled by the rival Hayat organization.
HTS is led by fighters who formerly belonged to al-Qaeda's ex-affiliate in Syria.
Sunday's deadly attack was carried out against regime positions in the village of Masasna, in the north of Hama province, the Observatory said.
"It was one of the highest casualty figures among regime ranks since the Putin-Erdogan deal," Abdel Rahman said. He was referring to an agreement reached in the Russian resort of Sochi between Russian President and his counterpart Under the September 17 deal, was supposed to exert its influence over anti-regime groups in the Idlib region to get them to pull back their fighters and heavy weapons from a demilitariZed zone.
The agreement was meant to stave off a planned offensive by the regime and its Russian backers that aid groups feared could spark the eight-year-old Syrian conflict's worst humanitarian crisis yet.
The government assault on the last major bastion of forces opposed to 's rule has indeed been held off but the deal's provisions have not been implemented and the de facto truce looks shakier than ever.
Since the Sochi agreement, HTS has consolidated its grip on the Idlib province and Turkey appears to be in no position to deliver on its commitment.
Breaches of the demilitarized zone have spiked in recent days. Another 20 regime and allied forces were killed in three days of about a week ago.
