According to sources, the terrorists planted a large number of explosives – this led to the destruction of the bridge. Stitching metal objects were also scattered on the track.

February 16, it became known that the Russian military police began to establish control over the M5 highway, which passes through all of Syria. It connects Aleppo in the north with the cities of Hama, Homs and Damascus, and in the south reaches the province of Deraa and the border with Jordan. The road allows the military to quickly transfer equipment and supply supplies.

As previously reported by the Russian Ministry of Defense, patrolling takes place in accordance with the agreement reached during the meeting of Russian and Turkish Presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan on March 5.

The presidents of the two countries concluded an agreement according to which a ceasefire regime came into force in the Idlib de-escalation zone. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad later said that if the US and Turkish military did not leave the country, Damascus would be able to use force.
