Syrian loyalist forces gained control of new villages south of Aleppo, Northern Syria, and are now three km away from the Abu al-Duhur Military Airport east of Idlib.

Activists said that loyalist forces gained control of the villages of Hayaniya and Halwiya and hills around the village of Masah south of Aleppo, after the factions and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), which is a military entity of many fighting groups, withdrew from the region for the benefit of the government.

Activists circulated a video that shows loyalist forces arresting members of the Islamist Ahrar al-Sham movement. They said in the video that HTS left the areas without informing them.

Activists said that loyalist forces gained control of the whole area of ​​Jabal al-Hoss, which includes about 250 villages, after opposition factions and the HTS withdrew for fear of being besieged.

Last Saturday, loyalist forces gained control of the town of Tal al-Daman, 45 km south of Aleppo, and more than 20 other villages during battles with HTS, amid accusations that the HTS had withdrawn in favor of the government.

The withdrawal of HTS in the southern countryside of Aleppo coincides with the advance of Free Syrian Army factions in the southern countryside of Idlib during battles with the loyalist forces. Earlier, two battles have been launched with the participation of many factions without the HTS, which fights there alone.

About 150,000 people have been displaced from the southern villages of Aleppo during the past two months due to the military campaign launched by the loyalist forces, leading to the destruction of about 60 percent of the area, including schools and infrastructure, killing and wounding civilians. Also, the only medical clinic in the area of ​​Tal al-Daman has gone out of service.
