On Monday, the Jaish al-Islam militant group, known to be supported by Saudi Arabia, launched missiles against government forces positions in the Damascus countryside. Jaish al-Islam allegedly captured some missiles in the Qalamoun area in 2013. The usage of these missiles is a clear indication that Jaish al-Islam, which keeps positions in the Eastern Ghouta region near the Syrian capital, is not going to follow a ceasefire agreement promoted by Damascus, Tehran, Ankara, and Moscow in the so-called “Astana format”.

At least four Turkish soldiers were wounded in clashes with US-backed Kurdish forces on Monday. According to the Manbij Military Council, clashes between the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Turkish army took place at the village of Olashli.

Meanwhile, Turkish-backed militants captured some five Syrian army soldiers in the countryside of al-Bab. The incident took place as result of tensions between government troops and pro-Turksih forces in Tadef and west of Manbij.

The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces, backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces, have continued operations in the Aleppo province, focusing on the water plant and the airport. The same move is aimed to isolate Deir Hafer.

In the western Aleppo countryside, fighting between the army and militants has been on-going in the area of Rashidin.

The Syrian army and the National Defense Forces have reportedly retaken the Jazal Oil Field from the ISIS terrorist group in the province of Homs. If confirmed, government troops will be in control of two important oilfields along the Homs-Palmyra highway.

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.
