The military forces of the Bashar Assad regime carried out an attack in the Idlib de-escalation zone in Syria, Anadolu reports, citing sources in the Idlib Civil Defense Directorate (White Helmets).

According to the report, more than one settlement of the province was subjected to intense air and ground strikes, with casualties among the civilian population. In particular, seven civilians were killed.

“Thus, the death toll in the last 24 hours has reached 22,” the report summarized.

In September 2018, Russia and Turkey reached an agreement on the creation of a demilitarized zone in Idlib. Mobile patrols of the Turkish units and units of the Russian military police will control the territory. Turkey also had to strengthen the observation points along the inner perimeter of the de-escalation zone in Idlib.
U.S. President Donald Trump announced the final defeat of the Islamic State militants in Syria, reports Reuters.

"Trump has said Islamic State no longer holds territory several times over the past few weeks. But U.S. officials told Reuters that fighting still continued late into Thursday between U.S.-backed forces and Islamic State militants in the last remaining territory it holds," the report said.

As reported, Acting Defense Minister Patrick Shanahan said to President Donald Trump that the territory of Syria was freed from the control of the Islamic State militants.

Earlier it was reported about the storming of the settlement of Baguz on the border with Iraq, which was the last point, control of which was maintained by ISIS in Syria. The success of the assault should be a signal for the withdrawal of American troops from this country, as announced by Donald Trump. Now there are about 2,000 U.S. servicemen there, about 400 will remain to secure the local security forces.
