  • The Summer 2011 Jabal al-Zawiya operation occurred during an early phase of the Syrian civil war. On Wednesday, June 29 Syrian army launched an extensive operation in the villages of Jebel al-Zawiya in the west of the Idlib province, claiming the lives of at least 11 people. A resident of Jabal al-Zawya said he heard large explosions overnight around the villages of Rama and Orum al-Joz, west of the highway linking the cities of Hama and Aleppo. Another resident said 30 tanks rolled into Jabal al-Zawya on Monday from the village of Bdama on the Turkish border, where troops broke into houses and burnt crops. On June 30, it was reported that Syrian army forces spread through a restive mountainous area near the Turkish border, as the death toll from a two-day military siege rose to 19 people, according to activists and a witness.
