The army of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his allies continue the attacks on eastern regions of Syrian province Idlib, as Interfax reports.
After a short fight with the detachments of Syrian opposition supported by Turkey, the Syrian army took two settlements Tanabeh and Jawbas and continued movement to Nayrab.
Meanwhile, the Russian military police entered city Saraqib in the eastern part of Idlib province on March 2, at 5:00 p.m., as RBK reported.
Moreover, the landing ship of Russia’s Naval Forces Novocherkask passed the Bosporus and headed to the Mediterranean Sea. It headed to Syrian port Tartus, where the material and technical provision base of Russia’s Naval Forces in the Mediterranean Sea is situated, as Interfax reported.
It is the fourth vessel of the Russian Naval Forces, which was sent to Syria since February 28.
On February 29, Russia sent two frigates Admiral Makarov and Admiral Grigorovich to the Mediterranean Sea as well as landing ship Orsk of the Black Sea Fleet of Russia.
The situation in Idlib escalated after several dozen Turkish soldiers were killed in Syrian Idlib by the army of Bashar al-Assad and the troops of the Russian Federation.
After the attack, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu held a telephone conversation with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.
The Turkish army retaliated against the positions of Bashar al-Assad’s troops in Idlib, in revenge for the deaths of more than three dozen Turkish soldiers in this Syrian province.
As we reported, Turkey launched a Spring Shield large-scale military operation in northwestern Syria.
