Syrian troops enter strategic town in Idlib after 5 years

Syrian troops entered the town of Khan Shaykhun on Sunday for the first since they lost control of it in 2014, as stated by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The town serves as a major bastion for Takfiri terrorists in the northwestern Idlib province. Clashes between Syrian forces and Nusra Front terrorists in Khan Shaykhun have been fierce, leaving many terrorists dead or injured.

Earlier in the day, Syrian soldiers managed to regain control over the Tal KfarIdoun area, located west of a key highway which connects the capital, Damascus, with the strategic northern city of Aleppo.
