Field and local developments:

Hayaat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) emptied the Taftanaz Military Airbase east of Idlib, Northern Syria, from the aircrafts inside it and transferred them to an unknown place.

 HTS denied reports, which activists deliberated,  on selling the wreckage of the helicopters to the loyalist forces or setting up a monitoring point for the Turkish authorities at the airbase. The HTS said, "The people of the region were so diligent to move the aircrafts to the countryside of Idlib. The command ordered the return of what was drove out to the airbase.”

In another context, the director of the aid system in Syria for relief and development, Obeida Denush told SMART that four raids by Russian aircraft targeted the al-Sham hospital in the town of Has. The hospital was forced to shut down, and one of its cadres was injured.

In the latest developments of the Olive Branch battle in Aleppo, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Turkish Army gained control of the village of Qauda Qawi in the area of Rajo, northwest of the city of Afrin, after clashes with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

In Southern Syria, the Alrahman Legion said in a brief statement that Engineering battalion, affiliated to it, blew up the network of tunnels in the area of Manashir in the neighborhood of Joubar east of the Syrian capital of Damascus, leading to its destruction and killing some loyalist forces’ members. No further details were given.

The spokesman for the Alrahman Legion, Wael Alwan, told SMART that the location of the bombing is a separated point between the neighborhood of Joubar and the nearby town of Ain Tarma.

In Eastern Ghouta, medical cadres organized a sit-in in the town of Madeira on Wednesday, in protest against the intense bombing campaign carried out by the Syrian loyalist forces and Russia.

Ahmed Sarhan, a member of the council, told SMART that the convoy includes 1,400 baskets containing foodstuffs and medical supplies, to be distributed to all the towns of Eastern Ghouta.

For the new developments south of Damascus, activists said that the Islamic State gained control of Haifa Street in Yarmouk camp after clashes with the HTS, lasted three hours, killing and wounding members of ISIS.

In Central Syria, the Negotiations Committee for the northern Homs countryside demanded to implement the mechanisms of items agreed earlier with the Russian side, and that Turkey is present. The Committee considered that procrastination by Russia to enforce the agreement reflects the fact that it is a party to the Syrian government and not a "guarantor."

The operations room of the northern Homs countryside said that the threats of the Syrian loyalist forced and their ally Russia on their intention to start "military action" on the northern besieged Homs, is just a "psychological war."

In Hama, the al-Azza Army of the FSA revealed in a brief statement that it targeted the Maharda thermal station under government control, using heavy artillery shells in response to Russian shelling of civilians.

Recent political and international developments:

The Special Envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, said that Syria is going through the most dangerous periods of battles in years, which undermine the political solution.

On Wednesday, de Mistura said at the UN Security Council, "I have been a special envoy for four years, and this is a violent, disturbing and dangerous period, which I have never seen in all my term."
