Field and local developments:

On Monday night, a suspected Islamic State (IS) explosion targeted an excellent location of the loyalist forces and their allied militias, killing and injuring several members of them in the Northeastern al-Suwayda countryside, Southern Syria.

Local sources reported that an IS suicide bomber struck a loyalist forces location, east of the village of Douma, 25 kilometers northeast of al-Suwayda. The explosion killed four loyalist forces members.

On Monday, the Syrian government forces advanced in the desert of the al-Suwayda governorate, Southern Syria, without direct clashes with the ISIS’ members, who withdrew to their fortified rough terrains.

Knowledgeable sources reported that the Syrian government forces advanced in almost exposed areas, while ISIS attempted to drag the forces to their fortified rough terrains in the desert of al-Suwayda, adding that the battle did not start yet.

On Tuesday, the free Coast Directorate suspended the work of hospitals and medical centers in the countryside of Latakia, Western Syria, in response to the kidnapping of the health director by unknown persons while he was working in a hospital.

Activists said that hooded gunmen in a van stormed the Coast hospital, kidnapped health director, Khalil Agha, and seized the hospital car after they attacked the guards.

On Monday, the First Response Team of the al-Raqqa local council of the Kurdish Autonomous Administration pulled nine bodies out from the rubble of destroyed buildings in the city of al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria.

A source from the Initial Response Team told SMART that the team pulled the bodies of nine people out from the rubble of buildings in the al-Badou neighborhood and Airport Road in the city of al-Raqqa. The team continues to search for others.

The military police, affiliated with the Kurdish Autonomous Administration, arrested four men in al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria, coincided with a massive deployment of security forces.

The Asayish forces of the Kurdish Autonomous Administration prevented trucks loaded with fuel from going to areas controlled by the Syrian government forces across the city of al-Tabaqa, 43 kilometers west of al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria.

The Syrian government forces intensified bombing on the city of Lataminah, north of Hama, Central Syria, using dozens of rockets, artillery and mortars shells.

Activists said that the government forces bombed the city and its surrounding farmlands using more than 120 artillery and rocket shells. The surrounding checkpoints and headquarters also targeted the city using heavy machine guns, killing some sheep and damaging civilian property.

The Syrian government forces also shelled areas in the southern countryside of Aleppo and scientific research area in the western countryside of Northern Syria, without causing injuries.

The medical officer of the local council in the city of al-Bab, 38 kilometers east of Aleppo, Northern Syria, prevented the circulation of medicine because it is not useful, and does not meet the required specifications.

In a statement, the medical office prevented the circulation of Triptofed products in all pharmacies and warehouses in the city of al-Bab, calling on the pharmacists to empty this product and destroy it, under penalty of punishment.

Displaced civilians in the al-Rikban camp suffer from a lack of food. They are also afraid of a lack of bread because the Syrian government forces prevent the materials and flour from being entered the camp at the Syrian-Jordanian border.

The head of the civil affairs office in the camp, Okba Abdullah, told SMART that since a week, the Syrian government prohibits flour, vegetables, fruits, and foodstuffs from being entered the camp of al-Rikban. In other cases, the Syrian government imposes very high fees on them.

Displaced families in the Aleppo Labieh refugee camp near the village of Deir Hassan, 35 kilometers north of Idlib, Northern Syria, complained about the decline in services provided to them.

Displaced families living in the camp said that they had been suffering for months from the almost complete cessation of relief and financial aid, in addition to the decrease in drinking water and the poor services.

The Salvation Government in the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham-controlled areas in Idlib held the first agricultural conference in Northern Syria.

The head of the Salvation Government, Muhammad al-Sheikh, told SMART that the conference was held for the necessity to find plans to invest agricultural resources and organize the work between them and industry and trade, especially after the population increased in Idlib because the Syrian government displaced thousands from Southern, Northern and Central Syria to Idlib

Political and international developments:

On Monday, the United Nations condemned the attacks by Syrian government forces and their loyalist militias on the governorate of Idlib, Northern Syria.

UN deputy official spokesman, Farhan Haq, said in a press conference at the organization's headquarters in New York, "The United Nations condemns attacks against civilians, aid workers and civil and humanitarian infrastructure, and calls for the need to protect civilians."
