Turkish forces tried to break through the defense line of the Syrian army, but were immediately destroyed

Turkey gave the go-ahead to its mercenaries to attack against the SAA.

A few hours ago it became known that a group of Turkish mercenaries tried to break through the defense line of the Syrian army in the area of ​​the settlement of Melladzha. It is known that the jihadists tried to launch a quick attack, however, on the approaches to the positions of the Syrian army, some of the latter were completely destroyed, while the rest of the mercenaries were forced to flee, and another militant was captured by the Syrian military - from him to at the moment, the CAA can receive not only information about the reasons for the attack, but also valuable information regarding the further actions of the jihadists.

“In the province of Idlib, militants from the 1st battalion of the 4th brigade of the 4th corps of pro-Turkish bandit formations attempted to break through the positions of government forces 40 km south-west of Idlib near the settlement of Melladzha. As a result of the clash with the support of the artillery of the Armed Forces of the SAR, the attempt to break through was suppressed, the enemy suffered losses of over 10 militants killed, withdrew in the direction of Fatira, one militant was taken prisoner ", - according to the Russian news agency ANNA News.

The circumstances of the militants' attack so far raise quite a few questions, since in this area the Syrian troops have quite significant forces, while the jihadists tried to break into this area, moreover, without any support from the artillery.
