Units of the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) continued to attack the fortified areas of the Dzhebhat Al-Nusrah (banned in the Russian Federation) in the province of Damascus. Fighting was conducted on the outskirts of the city of Mugr Al-Mir in the south-western part of the region.

On the demarcation line between the Kurds and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the province of Aleppo, armed clashes did not cease for 24 hours: the SSA fighters, who were supporting the Turkish forces, fired at in the territory of the Kurdish canton Afrin. At the same time, the Kurdish media claimed that the SSN fighters had joined the ranks of the SDF around the ex-SSA militants who were not satisfied with the excessive authority of the Turkish side.
In the province of Deir-ez-Zor, small detachments of igilovtsy (the IS grouping is banned in the Russian Federation) still maintain hotbeds of resistance in the Syrian desert, as well as on the left bank of the Euphrates, where Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) operate. According to sources, the IG detachment, based not far from the territories controlled by the Kurds, crossed the river and attacked the positions of the SAR forces on the east coast of the Euphrates, but was defeated. Almost all the attackers were destroyed, some of them fled back.
In the afternoon, parts of the SAR army continued to develop the offensive in the south-eastern part of Idlib. As a result of the fierce confrontation and with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the servicemen managed to repel the Zahra settlement and Tal Zahra altitude from the terrorists of al-Nusra. During the fighting, at least 50 Islamists were destroyed.
