As Damascus forces of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) intensify efforts at restoring the Syria's statehood, a series of heavy clashes reportedly broke out in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate on Friday, following an exchange of artillery fire near the Kafr Nabl axis.

A field report from northwestern Syria says the President Bahsir al-Assad's Aram Army and jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) trades gunfire and rockets along the front-lines of southern Idlib this evening. The report confirmed that the clashes took place near the towns of Kansafra, Al-Bara’, and Kafr Nabl, with no information about the total number of casualties both sides suffered.

These latest clashes come nearly a week after the jihadist rebels of Hurras Al-Deen carried out a deadly attack that killed over 30 Syrian Arab Army soldiers in the Al-Ghaab Plain. This attack by the Hurras Al-Deen group prompted the Syrian Army to send several units of reinforcements to the southern region of Idlib and northwestern countryside of Hama.

While there is supposed to be a ceasefire in this part of the country, the two warring parties continue to exchange hostilities across the Hama and Idlib fronts.
