Residents of Zawiya Mountain and Arihah, in the southern part of northwest Syria’s Idlib, fear a new wave of displacement that the area may witness as a result of the recent military escalation by Syrian government forces and their Russian ally.


This comes amid rumors of an approaching battle by government forces against the area, especially after reports about the arrival of military reinforcements to the government forces’ frontlines in areas in Idlib, Hama, Aleppo, and Latakia.


Since mid-May, areas in the southern countryside of Idlib and the western countryside of Hama, which are subjected to a Russian-Turkish ceasefire agreement, have been witnessing intensive shelling by government forces.
