The Syrian Air Force has inflicted major damage to Jund al-Aqsa linked to the ISIS terrorist group in the Idlib-Hama countryside. Syrian warplanes destroyed a Jund al-Aqsa gathering near Khan Sheikhoun and a convoy belonging to the terrorist group near Morek, destroying at least 30 militants and 16 units of military equipment including battle tanks.

Khan Sheikhoun and Morek was captured by Jund al-Aqsa earlier this month after a series of firefights with Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other “moderate opposition” members. However, now Jund al Aqsa has reportedly made a peace deal with Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, a Jabhat Fatah al-Sham-led coalition of various terrorists, to withdraw to the province of Raqqah after crossing the Ithriya-Khanasser highway.

Clashes between the Syrian army and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham were reported in Dayyat Al-Assad and Souq al-Jibs west of the city of Aleppo. Government troops had allegedly attempted to seize the al-Soura checkpoint in Dayyat Al-Assad. The situation remains tense.

200 militants have surrendered and withdrawn from the town of Serghaya near Damascus. As soon as the militant evacuation is done, the town will be under a full control of the army.

The so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF, in other words rebranded fighters of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units), supported by the US Air Power and the US Special Forces, have seized the villages of al-Ferar, Kassar, Terfawiyah and Sabah al-Khayr from ISIS terrorists in the countryside of Raqqah. SDF units also attacked the ISIS-held areas of Mokha and Tell Shair.

Four Russian military servicemen were killed and two others were wounded in a car blast in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on February 20. The blast targeted a column of the Syrian troops en route from the Tiyas military airbase towards Homs, according to the statement.

SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence is a public analytical umbrella project maintained by an independent team of experts from the four corners of the Earth focusing on international relations issues and crises and working through a number of media platforms with a special emphasis on social networks. We focus on analysis and intelligence of the ongoing crises and the biggest stories from around the world. The project provides military operations analysis, the military posture of major world powers, and other important data influencing the growth of tensions between countries and nations. We try to dig out the truth on issues which are barely covered by the states concerned and the mainstream media.

Our team is a living proof that experts and volunteers seeking to analyse objectively the ongoing events and equipped with the newest ideas and technologies, can do what only government- and corporate-linked organizations were able to do in the past.

The SouthFront Team believes that not only “professional journalists” and well-paid “experts”, but common people with an inquisitive mind, whom are highly interested in some field of public life, are able to produce balanced content in a modern information-oriented society.

Wikileaks proved that anyone concerned could make a great contribution to the triumph of the truth. SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence has shown that anyone can create and disseminate accurate and timely world-changing content.
