The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continues to target militants violating the ceasefire in the northwestern region of Greater Idlib.
On November 24 morning, the army fired more than 40 rockets and artillery rounds at militants’ positions around the towns of Kafr Taal and Tadil in the western Aleppo countryside.
The intense strikes claimed the life of a fighter of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). The terrorist group is the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib.

In the afternoon, the army targeted a position of the al-Qaeda-linked Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) in the town of Ain La Rose in the southern countryside of Idlib with Russian-made 2K25 Krasnopol laser-guided artillery rounds.
According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, two militants of the TIP were killed in the pinpoint strike.

The ceasefire in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey last year, is being violated on a daily basis by the militants.
With Turkish forces in Greater Idlib doing nothing to stop these violations, the SAA and its allies are taking matters into their own hands. The situation in the region will not likely stabilize until terrorist groups like HTS and the TIP are neutralized.
