Military sources confirmed to Muraselon website that the Syrian air-defenses have intercepted unidentified targets above the western countryside of Damascus, downing a battle drone near Beit Jenn.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday Turkey will deploy troops in Syria’s northern Idlib region as part of a so-called de-escalation agreement brokered by Russia last month.
The issue of troops in Idlib will be voted in the Turkish Parliament today, after which the Turkish army will start operations in the border area to oust “Al-Nusra”.
Judging by the nature of the events, the preparation of the insurgents’ attack was revealed in advance, which led to effective countermeasures, which led to the failure of the offensive in such a short time. A striking contrast with the March events in Northern Hama. By the evening of September 20, according to Syrian sources, the militants were driven out of those areas that they managed to occupy at the cost of large losses, and now the issue of the counteroffensive of the SAA towards Murak is on the agenda in order to take advantage of the consequences of the unsuccessful offensive by militants.
To the North of the city of SAA has broken the resistance of the militants in Ayyash district, and is developing a successful offensive along the road leading to Madan, which is cut off from the main territory of the Caliphate.

The correspondent of the Federal news Agency (FAN) located in the province of Deir ez-Zor, where Southeast from the city was boosted by the Euphrates river.

Work continues on the transfer of Turkish armored vehicles to the Turkish-Syrian border, where Turkey shares a border with Idlib.
Apparently they are really preparing the deployment of Turkish troops in the Western districts of Idlib to take control of the border and remove “Al-Nusra”.
Russian combat aircraft in Syria launched surgical strikes, the U.S. was informed in advance about the limits of military operations in the city of Deir ez-Zor, said on Sunday the official representative of the defense Ministry major-General Igor Konashenkov.
A visual map illustrating one of the reasons for the race in the province of Deir ez-Zor. Major deposits of oil are still on the territory controlled by the Caliphate and it is the desire to control it that is behind the increased competition between the SAA and the SDF, although of course this problem is not exhausted.
The Russian foreign Ministry said that the SAA was able to cross the Euphrates near Deir ez-Zor, the true place of crossing was not specified. Also, it is claimed that the Northern Bank of the Euphrates created a springboard.
SDF operations to the North of Deir-ez-Zor demonstrate that the Kurds are for the United States is the main bet in the ongoing war. While there is the factor of ISIS, the United States remains able under this pretext to support the Kurds, at least until the moment when finally taken Raqqa (probably by the end of autumn, plus or minus a month) and the liberated territory to the North of the Euphrates.
The breakthrough of the blockade and the resumption of full operation of the aerodrome in the medium term, gives the SAA additional opportunities for operations in Eastern Syria, as an opportunity to fully air supply through the airbase of Deir ez-Zor, may accelerate the deployment of reinforcements for the development of operations for the full liberation of the city and subsequent operations against Madina and Abu Kemal.
The Russian General staff about the operation of unblocking Deir ez-Zor. It is worth noting that the operation was designed jointly by Russian and Syrian military. However, the high pace of operations in Eastern and Central Syria and more educated punches (compared to the campaigns of 2014-2015) to bypass and encircle the enemy, has long pointed to the fact that the specialists of the General staff are firmly are assisting the Syrian military. Hence increased speed of operations and reducing the effectiveness of enemy countermeasures.
Al-Qaeda is creating its most powerful stronghold ever in north-west Syria at a time when world attention is almost entirely focused on the impending defeat of Isis in the east of the country. It has established full control of Idlib province and of a vital Syrian-Turkish border crossing since July. “Idlib Province is the largest al-Qaeda safe haven since 9/11,” says Brett McGurk, the senior US envoy to the international coalition fighting Isis.
The Syrian authorities have notified the United Nations of breaking the siege of Deir ez-Zor, besieged by militants from the terrorist group Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) since the summer of 2014.
Russia, the United States and Jordan have reached an agreement which will allow the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to take over control of virtually all of militant-held southern Syria with the exception of a Coalition-occupied base near the Iraqi border.
In the afternoon, advance elements of the 17th division, special forces “Tiger” backed by tanks and led by a demining machine were able to walk to the base of the 137th brigade, where they met with its defenders. The attempt of ISIS to counterattack in the region of the oil fields in al – Mazra (South-West base of the 137th brigade.) failed.
