Syrian army launched the assault on Khan Sheikhun

56
Syrian troops launched an assault on the strategically important city of Idlib province - Khan Sheikhun. This city has been under the control of terrorists of various groups for several years, including the “renamed” “Jebhat al-Nusra” (* banned in the Russian Federation).


Syrian army launched the assault on Khan Sheikhun


The SAA chose the western axis as the main direction for the assault. At the same time, Syrian troops took up positions around Khan Sheikhun in several directions. The withdrawal routes of the militants are controlled from the nearest heights, and the situation is monitored from the air.

The first success of the Syrian government army in the liberation of Khan Sheikhun was the capture of a stronghold of militants on the western edge of the city. The militant detachment “Hayat Tahrir al-Shama” * was defeated, which allowed them to enter the western quarters of the village.

It is noteworthy that from the north-east, reinforcements in the form of several columns of militants tried to approach Khan Sheikhun. Air strikes were launched against them, as a result of which the terrorist operation to saturate Khan Sheikhun with new gang groups was a failure.

The Syrian forces set themselves the task of freeing Khan Sheikhun also because it is a strategically important city that allows you to control the Hama-Idlib highway. In turn, control over the highway will allow the militants in the province of Hama to cut off the main supply route.

An important detail: the liberation of Khan Sheikhun will allow Syrian troops to come close to the Turkish observation post in Moreka. In Damascus, it was noted that Turkish troops at this observation point actually ignored violations of the ceasefire by militants.

          Zaefratie is controlled by the Americans. Wagnerites have already tried to snuggle there, for which they were crumbled from the air. More interested persons are unlikely to be found. Maybe you want to voluntarily become desert fertilizer?

            It was written about the Wagnerites here by the pitchfork, maybe it wasn’t, but if it was then it knows how it was. And for the zafaerat there is CAA, IRGC and hidden support of Russia.

        It seems that the VKS worked in dense urban development, at least the skips skipped. The fact that less will work and the adjustable ammunition to use more is a fact.

                That's for sure! In general, since the beginning of the war I can’t advance there, and now 75 more militants brought in green buses from all over Syria have increased. And now they have nowhere to export.

              Well yes. Now Israel is not a newborn agricultural country in the middle of the desert, which was recognized by one and a half dozen countries where the most high-tech factory made cartridges underground under the laundry. Yes, and the IDF for a long time is not with guns from the Franco-Prussian war, two dozen tanks and a squadron of Messerschmitt.

                So Arabs from peaches are not fighting on camels with karamultuki. What do you have that they had very little weapons at the time? You still have fighters from the Arabs, but they are armed and there are more. You don’t have any and will not be allies in the region, they are all will unite and will support each other openly or covertly as soon as the danger from the United States disappears.
                Well, if the United States suffers for a short while, you are afraid of the United States. And the 48th year has nothing to do with it. At that time, the Arab countries themselves did not receive any dependence and at that time you were supported by the powers that be, by the decision to establish Israel.

                  So in 1948, the Arabs surpassed Israel in both number and preparation. And they received the equipment unhindered, unlike Israel, against which the American embargo acted. And in 1956, and in 1967. Arabs have always been much larger and armed, they were much better.
                  And in 1949, Israeli pilots (volunteers from around the world) shot down five Spitfires of the Royal Air Force in two battles. Do they also only have independence?

        Humanism in relation to civilians does not cancel the real understanding of the goals and desires of the enemy. Assad wants to destroy Israel, most rebels want to destroy Israel. This does not stop Israel from treating and feeding the Syrians.

    It is high time to end this Idlib adder.
    Wait Turkey came up with the idea that supposedly Syrian Aviation staged a raid.
    And the fact that Turkey on foreign territory is conducting a military operation allegedly against the Kurds.
    But without the invitation of the Syrian government, they are silent.
    Paradox.
