One of the last military successes was the capture of the city of Huvin, which, despite its small size, is an important strategic point. Through it pass key transport arteries in the province. During the operation, up to 120 militants were destroyed, including several high-level field commanders. It is reported that the Syrians managed to seize several Turkish-made armored vehicles.
Direct support from the air of the government army is provided by the Russian aviation. This is confirmed by the video published by the terrorists, on which a film crew of militants fell under the bombing. As reported in social networks, next to the operator, a RBK-250 cluster bomb fell and stuck into the ground.
