The two Shi’ite towns have been completely surrounded and besieged by vast distances to areas controlled by the Syrian government since March 28, 2015.
In early 2015, a coalition of jihadist forces mobilized in Turkey and overran the entirety of Idlib province, with the exception of Fua and Kefraya, and turned it into a jihadist-center with Shariah law ruling over the area.
Despite being surrounded by radical Islamists, locals of Fua and Kefraya, with the help of airdropped Hezbollah commandos, has successfully defended the towns from the terrorist organizations.
