Situation in Syria

18
The leader of the terrorists called on opposition groups to oppose the CAA in Idlib with a united front. The Kurds are asking the UN to stop Turkish shelling of Afrin in Aleppo. Reports about it FAN with reference to Syrian sources.




In the north-east of Damascus, battles between anti-government forces and Syrian troops took place during the day. Armed clashes were observed on the outskirts of the cities of Irbin and Harasta, where, according to the statement of the CAA command, a full-scale antiterrorist campaign against Dzhebhat An-Nusra (banned in the Russian Federation) and its allies will soon begin.

Over the past day, Turkey continued to increase its military power near the border with Syria. New rocket launchers were deployed in the Turkish province of Hatay. Recep Erdogan announced that the offensive of the Turkish troops and the allied Syrian Free Army (FSA) will begin soon. Meanwhile, opponents do not cease to conduct mutual shelling. Kurdish representatives said that the massive bombardment has been going on for four days, and turned to the UN Security Council for help.

In the south-eastern part of the province of Deir ez-Zor, clashes continued between the IG units (banned in the Russian Federation) and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) for control of the settlement of Garanidh. The terrorists used drones to dump explosives on strongholds of Kurdish troops. In addition, they resorted to an attack involving a suicide bomber, as a result of which at least ten SDF soldiers were killed.

In the area of ​​the border between Hama, Aleppo and Idlib, an unexpected attack of terrorists occurred: militants who fled to the north-east of Hama from the so-called “Akerbatskiy cauldron” attacked the positions of the SAR army near the settlement of Sinjar. As a result, the igilovtsy advanced a bit and took a few minor positions, taking advantage of the clashes of the CAA with "al-Nusroy."

Having a severe shortage in manpower, the leader of the anti-government alliance, led by al-Nusra, Abu Mohammed Al-Julani, called on the armed opposition forces to form a united front to fight the legitimate Syrian government.

      - Whom "THEIR", what are we hoping for? The brazen intervention of the Americans - that’s all the ins and outs of this mess. Soon our war ended, it seems. Until all American bases in Syria are demolished, there will be no peace!

      That is yes. There is still a long way to go there, and the situation is becoming more confusing. The war of all against all begins ...

        Each pulls a blanket over himself and achieves his own. The outcome of this war will determine a lot in the world.

          hi .... The blanket is likely to tear. Syria will not be in its former borders. At least in the foreseeable future.

            Syria will not be in the previous borders.

            This is one of the goals of many uninvited guests. But one should not forget the geopolitical component of this war.

    The main thing is not these disadvantages. How to fix the root problem? And you should not forget about the Turks. The Sultan conducts his policy.

    The Kurds, incited by the SGA, take a position that is incorrect and strategically disadvantageous. They need to unite with the SAA and coordinate their actions with them, and not announce the creation of a separate state, which plays into the hands of the SGA and makes the civil war permanent. In return, they would gain autonomy and peace, otherwise they would get a war on two fronts! The strategic mistake of the Russian diplomacy is that the Kurds are listening to Fashington, not Moscow. So there will be no reconciliation for a long time.

    Bandits appealed to the UN. It is time to rename this organization into the OPT Terrorist Support Organization.

    The edge and end were clearly visible until Russia entered.
    The main thing is that the balance of power has radically changed.
    Now mattresses do not see either the end or the edge.

      It’s not hard to guess who in a war of attrition is blown away faster. To equip Arab peasants with cheap weapons and to drive Middle Eastern players into the ATS is not a problem and costs a penny, but the constant supply of armored vehicles, PMCs and weapons from Russia, plus Assad's cheap air support, can hardly be called cheap. In Idlib, they got stuck to their ears, yesterday they recaptured a dozen settlements by trumpeting SIM for another victory, today they lost it, tomorrow they recaptured everything in a circle.

    You need to follow the TVO of actions in Syria, then you will see everything ... There is no confusing situation there .. The situation is favorable for Syria .. Syria has taken on the most difficult site for it .. The liberation of Idlib province, where all the irreconcilable from all gathered the provinces from where they were knocked out, or taken out under an agreement .. All the remnants of the armed forces and equipment accumulated there. And only now, having gained strength and experience in fighting, the Syrian command of the SAR, together with the Russian general staff officers and other loyal forces, began to uproot this unreasonable viper, in parallel cleaning up some areas of the Alepo province and the Homs province, bordering Idlib province .. The remaining foci in East Ghouta, a suburb of Damascus, and the border areas to Israel and Jordan are not yet touched (there are not enough forces), so there are still holding back fights for not spreading to the expanse enemy limited military units of the SAR .. How to solve problems with Idlib, and there everything goes to that, despite the resistance and the trataki of the idlib thugs will then proceed until the liberation of East Guta and the border areas ... We have left the solution to the problems with the Kurds since they are not yet reconciled opponents of Bashar al-Assad, and you can negotiate with them .. Unless of course the Kurds are finally the US will not set up, against the rule of Syria .. But then you can unite with Turkey (the main enemy of the Kurds), and Iran, and strangle them as always ..))) Here is an approximate alignment of situations in Syria ..

    As I understand it, the Russian Defense Ministry decided to liquidate the remaining enclaves of terrorists in the territories controlled by Assad, but God knows what will happen next. How to deal with territories controlled by the Kurds, what about the territories under Turkey ???? Perhaps Syria within those borders will be

      For Min. The defense of the Russian Federation, you don’t have to decide what to do .. There is a whole general headquarters for conducting military operations in Syria .. And many situations are being worked out, and recommendations on how to act in certain situations. depending on situational moments at different periods of time, and really taking into account both the state of the Syrian army and their allies, the level of training of army units, the availability of reserves. and providing troops with ammunition, and other logistical support, setting tasks for tactical decisions on individual theater of operations, and the general strategy of warfare .. So that you do not understand correctly the Russian Ministry of Defense .. And what about the territory that is still controlled by the Kurds, not only to God known, but also being worked out in Syria, and in the General Staff of the Russian Federation, and Min. foreign affairs (covering foreign policy decisions in the world) .. So that everything goes according to plan ..)))
