Syrian regime forces allow ISIS terrorists into Idlib
The Assad regime has reportedly opened a land corridor through the Hama-Idlib border allowing hundreds of ISIS terrorists -- and large amounts of military equipment -- to enter Syria’s Idlib province.
Karabakh Today reports citing AA that regime forces provided the militants with safe passage through the corridor, which links southern Idlib to Hama’s eastern countryside, local sources, speaking anonymously due to fears for their safety, told Anadolu Agency on Tuesday.
One ISIS convoy that recently passed through the corridor included hundreds of militants, 20 pickup trucks mounted with heavy machine-guns, an armored personnel carrier, three combat tanks and advanced anti-aircraft weaponry, the same sources said.
Local sources also reported that, while crossing into southern Idlib, ISIS militants had carried out a surprise attack on opposition positions in the area.
Although the militants were eventually repulsed, ISIS reportedly remains in control of several small villages in the area, which continues to witness sporadic clashes between the terrorist group and opposition forces.
