Syrian government forces, backed by allied fighters from popular defense groups, have advanced in the battles against foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants in the country’s northwestern province of Idlib, wresting full control over a number of villages.

Iran Press/Middle East: Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that Syrian soldiers and their allies managed to recapture the towns of Urum al-Kubrah and Kafr Naya, which lie in the Atarib district of the province, as well as Jamiyah al-Radwan area on Saturday 15 February following bitter clashes with members of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, and their affiliates.
