IDLIB, Syria – A selfie video has emerged online of a Syrian Army soldier atop the Tal Wared hilltop in southern Idlib province.
The hilltop was liberated along with the towns of Mushrayifah, Dajaj and Tamat al-Kalifah, as reported by FRN yesterday.
The hilltop was captured from the Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra Front where the Syrian Army, backed by Russian and Syrian airstrikes, have launched a full-scale operation to liberate the jihadist-held Idlib province.
The entirety of the province, bar the Shi’ite towns of Fua and Kefraya, was invaded by jihadist forces who mobilized in Turkey in early 2015.
Russia announced on Wednesday that its main Syria mission for 2018 is to completely defeat the Al-Nusra Front.
