The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel reported on Wednesday night that the army troops repulsed the terrorists’ attacks in the Northern parts of Saraqib and liberated the village of Afes.
The village along with several other regions, including Saraqib, had collapsed earlier this week during the terrorists’ heavy offensives but the Syrian army won back control of the entire region on Sunday.
The Army on Wednesday recaptured two other villages in the Eastern and Southern parts of Idlib, killing 28 terrorists, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
In a relevant development on Wednesday, the Syrian army repelled an offensive launched by al-Nusra Front and Ajnad al-Caucasus terrorist groups, supported by Turkey, to occupy the strategic town of Saraqib, killing 150 militants.
The Arabic-language service of Sputnik news agency quoted a source in the Syrian army Division 25 as saying that the two terrorist groups launched extensive attacks on Army-controlled Saraqib on Wednesday.
He added that clashes between the two sides lasted until afternoon, but the terrorists failed to capture any position or advance in the battlefield.
The source said that the Syrian army forces killed nearly 150 terrorists after repulsing their offensive, forcing the militants to withdraw towards their positions in the Northern and Southwestern parts of Saraqib.
