Aleppo, Syria – Syrian rebel fighters of al-Fatih Army (Jaish al-Fatih) attacked Monday the regime-held towns of al-Foua and Kefraya in Idlib province with heavy artillery and rockets, rebel military sources said.
Speaking to ARA News in Aleppo, Saleh Zein, fighter in the ranks of Jaish al-Fatih, said that rebel forces bombed the towns of al-Foua and Kefraya in the countryside of Idlib with dozens of rockets and mortar shells, hitting checkpoints of pro-Assad forces.
“Our (al-Fatih) fighters clashes with pro-regime forces in the vicinity of al-Foua and Kefraya on Monday evening,” the source reported, pointing out that rebels seized several points southeast the town of al-Foua.
Subsequently, pro-regime forces responded by targeting the rebel-held nearby towns of Binnish and Maarat Misrin with barrel bombs.
“Four civilians were killed and seven other wounded in the attack,” the source said.
The towns of al-Foua and Kefraya have been under rebels’ siege for weeks. The towns have been taken by pro-Assad forces as military bases, from which they used to attack rebel-held areas in Idlib.
