On Saturday night, explosions and fires went off in the al-Mazzah military airbase, Western Damascus.

An anonymous source reported that more than 70 percent of the city's neighborhoods were destroyed, and that civilians rush to restore their homes without any help from organizations or the Syrian government.

In Northern Syria, a Syrian government forces' bombing killed a pregnant woman and her child in the town of Badama, Western Idlib.

A hand grenade explosion injured six Free Police officers in the city of Azaz in Aleppo.

Dozens of people demonstrated in two villages in Western Aleppo in solidarity with the Idlib governorate, condemning the military campaign that the Syrian government forces are threatening to launch against Idlib.

More than 75 civilians demonstrated in solidarity with Idlib in the village of Abyan Samaan, raising the flag of the Syrian Revolution and banners that read, "We refuse all kinds of Russia, Iranian and Assadi occupation" and "Idlib will not kneel but to God."

Unknown persons demanded a ransom in exchange for the life of a person they kidnapped in the Afrin area (43 kilometers north of Aleppo).

On social media, activists circulated a video that shows a masked person holding a knife to the neck of the civilian, Ghassan Omar Fawzi Hassan, while demanding the civilian's relatives to pay a 10 million Syrian pounds in ransom.

A local source reported that the Syrian government forces arrested two people working as Sharia court judges in the Northern Homs countryside, in addition to three Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters, adding that they were promoting reconciliation with the Syrian government before the latter seized the whole area.

Civil sources reported that the Syrian government forces are arresting expatriates arriving at several Syrian border checkpoints to blackmail their relatives for money.

Sources from Hama said that they documented eight arrest cases in the Lattakia Airport and the border passages between Syria and Lebanon, where the Syrian government forces arrested several people and demanded 10 million SYP as ransom via mediators from the Shabihah militia.

In Northeastern Syria, a dispute between Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fighters killed a fighter of the SDF's al-Sanadid Forces and injured another at a checkpoint in the al-Hasakah governorate.

On his Twitter account, Khalid Abu Anas, a member of the consultative assembly of the Ahrar al-Sham Islamist Movement, which is a component of the NLF, said that he received information regarding a "success in the Turkish efforts to spare the liberated areas’ destruction," without mentioning the party with which Turkey concluded the agreement.
