Syrian army partially liberated the demilitarized zone in the province of Idlib
DAMASCUS, (BM) – The Syrian army partially liberated the demilitarized zone in the province of Idlib. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, quoting TASS.
According to him, the de facto zone is under the control of government forces, but their task is to stop terrorist attacks, and not to enter the border.
“Our understanding is that the task of promoting the Syrian government troops was not to get to a border and stop there. They reacted to the terrorists. If terrorists fire at the country’s second largest city, this is probably the motivation of government forces,” said a representative of the ministry.
Earlier on February 22, Vershinin said that since the beginning of January, terrorists carried out eight attacks on the Russian base in Khmeimim with the help of drones. According to him, Russia is not ready to endure the hotbed of terrorism in Idlib.
