Situation in Syria

31
On the Syrian-Turkish border, battles took place between the Turkish Armed Forces and the Kurds. Terrorists in the south of Damascus attacked the allies of the CAA. Reports about it FAN with reference to Syrian sources.




In the south-west of Damascus, clashes between government forces and armed opposition units did not subside. The most fierce fighting took place near the city of Mugr Al-Mir, where the CAA managed to free the hills of Tel Al-Ahmar, Tel Al-Madjana and Tel Al-Hatsan. Thus, the SAR troops systematically surround the settlement, trying to cut it off from other territories under the control of the militants.

Near the Syrian-Turkish border near the city of Kobani (Aleppo Province) by the evening fierce clashes between the Turkish army and the Popular Self-Defense Detachments (YPG) began. The initiator was the Turkish side. Kurdish units repulsed the attack, but lost several soldiers killed and wounded. Later, the Kurds opened fire on the southern outskirts of Turkey, as a result of which one civilian was killed.

Syrian Red Crescent brought humanitarian aid to the border town of Abu Kemal (Deir-ez-Zor province). As part of the cargo were kits with food and medicine. Also in the city continued the work of Syrian engineering units and employees of the Russian Center for reconciliation of the warring parties, leading work on mine clearance and restoration of the infrastructure of the village. The clashes between the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the IG detachments, which had fled under the onslaught of the CAA and the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation towards the territories controlled by the Kurds, resumed. As a result of the confrontation, the Kurdish forces succeeded in occupying the villages of Hasiyat, Jaishi, Jadleh, Al-Bahr and Garnay on the east bank of the Euphrates.

In the past 24 hours, two explosive devices, which had been planted by terrorists during the retreat, detonated at once in Raqqah. Due to the fact that the Kurds have not completed demining areas of the provincial capital, the explosions in Rakka occur almost daily. Nevertheless, the local population continues to return to the city, thereby putting their lives at risk. Without waiting for help from the Kurds or the forces of the Western coalition, civilians began to independently dismantle the rubble in the Ramla quarter.

Throughout the day, the Syrian units continued to develop the offensive in the northern part of Hama province. During the fighting, several strategic heights passed under the control of the CAA. The support of the forces of the SAR and the pro-Assad formations was provided by the Russian HVAC.

      Everything happened on Thursday morning, when traffic on the highway is quite busy. The coordinated work of the ATS security forces prevented the deaths of dozens of local residents, TASS notes.

    Under Damascus, militants still live freely, this is not the case. CAA works there for years to come. This is on condition that the exceptional ones do not actively climb again. Otherwise, it will be like shagreen leather, back and forth.

      This week, the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) launched a massive counter-offensive in the countryside of Deir Ezzor, targeting the cities they recently lost on the west bank of the Euphrates River.
      Within 24 hours, the Islamic state not only captured several cities in the south of Deir Ezzor, but also restored its presence on the western bank of the Euphrates after the expulsion of the Syrian army from the city of Al Salihiya.
      IS will continue its offensive in the Euphrates Valley on Wednesday, recapturing more cities and hills from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies, supported by Iran.
      With the departure of the Tiger Forces to Hama, the Syrian army and their allies lost an important unit in the battle against Daesh in the Euphrates Valley.
      The Islamic state now benefits from the departure of the Tiger Forces, capturing several areas that were previously liberated in early December.

        There was information that some gang broke into Damascus. It’s either a block or several buildings. All this is somehow sad.
        And where is - "We will strike, which the terrorists have not yet seen"

    The war continues. ISIS will be squeezed out completely from the territory of Syria - they will more actively begin to fight among themselves. So everything was mixed up and not without the help of the West, as far as a peaceful and political resolution of the Syrian issue as before the Moon.

        Assad did not control the border from the very beginning, and now even more so

              Because Assad is not a magician, but with time he must do otherwise all efforts will be in vain, as well as the efforts of Russia, which we should not allow.

                We can assume now that the efforts were in vain, for Assad has no strength and no means, and nothing is expected, everything that will be done will be done without him and most likely the configuration of Syria will also be different

                    This is an objective reality - Kurds and Turks control the north, Kurds are all east of the Euphrates, including oil fields, which will help them to improve their situation, Isil there, by the way, also doesn’t feel very bad, Assad can’t do anything about it, even with the support of the Russian Federation, Americans are building bases on the east coast of the Euphrates, and this is completely different Syria

    The IS quite strongly launched an offensive between Mayadin and Abu Kemal ... Asadites recaptured settlements along the Efrat, Asadists retreat.
