Special forces of General Suheil went on the offensive on militants in the province of Idlib

The Syrian government army made an attempt to attack the positions of militants in the southeastern part of Idlib province. The CAA began military operations in response to the ongoing provocations by militants, constantly firing at locations of government forces.


The offensive command decided to start at night. Special forces — the 25th Special Forces Brigade (formerly Tiger Force) —were involved in the attack on the positions of the militants.

Fighters of General Suheil al-Hasan attacked the positions of terrorists in the area of ​​the settlement of Umm-Halahil. The main wave of the offensive came from the town of Musharif, which had previously come under the full control of the SAA.

After inflicting several attacks on the militants near Umm-Halahil, the fighters of the 25-th special brigade of the SAA entered the city. The militants, realizing that further resistance is futile, abandoned their previous positions.

In order to prevent terrorists from regrouping in the vicinity of the city, the Syrian forces continued the offensive after a short break.

The main task assigned by the command to the detachments participating in the offensive is the phased taking of terrorist positions along key roads with simultaneous closure of the militants' supplies. In addition, the SAA will make efforts to free the city of Maaret al-Nuuman from terrorists.

      Not just they went, but 4 villages were already liberated.
      According to Syrian state television, the Syrian army units returned to their control the village of Umm Halahil in the southeast of Idlib province, causing significant damage to terrorist groups. As a result of fierce clashes, the army also regained control of the villages of Dahra-Zarzur and Sir.

    While the Russian-Turkish agreement on de-escalation zones is in force, a large-scale offensive on Idlib is impossible. There will be only small battles along the line of contact. And I would like to see the return of this province under the control of Damascus. The Syrian Arab army was already to regain its strength. They are waiting for the moment when their hands will be untied.

      A large-scale attack on Idlib is associated with a large number of victims among the civilian population, this was said long before the Russian-Turkish agreements. As for the restoration of the forces of the SAA, it is not easy to conduct constant battles.

      The Syrian army exists only on paper. During the years of the Civil War (Sunnis against the Alawites), the army stopped replenishing. Sunnis are not being called upon, and if so, then these are not combat-ready units. Shiite militias are waging war on earth. The Syrian army flees at the slightest advance of the Sunnis. The special forces of General Suheil is a Russian chip not Syrian.

            But who is it interesting to deal with advise, dear? Some noticeable databases in the North Caucasus have ended for more than 10 years. What kind of refugees are you talking about, I xs. By the way, now in the same Chechnya it’s much calmer than what you have in Israel, keep that in mind. If Hezbollah and Hamas start to flatten you too, then you can move there. You can just apply for refugee status. Anything better than under rocket fire. At least the children will be calmer. request
            In general, I noticed. that all our sausage emigration feeds on news overdue for at least 10 years or even more. I advise you purely to broaden your horizons; go on vacation to the same Chechnya. I feel for you it will be a cultural shock. wink

              "According to UNHCR statistics, in 2018, Turkey (more than 3.5 million people) remained the country where the largest number of refugees from Syria found asylum. Other countries, which also had a large number of refugees from Syria, were Lebanon (about 950 thousand recognized as refugees), Jordan (about 700 thousand recognized as refugees), Germany (about 500 thousand recognized as refugees). Even in such a poor country, without borders with Syria, like Egypt, there were about 130 thousand Syrian refugees. In 2018, according to statistics from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, there were still only two recognized refugees from Syria throughout Russia, and the number of those who had temporary asylum status fell from 1128 people as of January 1, 2018 to 826 people as of January 1, 2019 years (a decrease of almost 30%). In other words, at the end of 2018, only 828 Syrian citizens had asylum in Russia. "

              The request to send "exclusively Muslims - immigrants from Chechnya and other Caucasian republics" was recently reported by sources of the British publication Al-Quds al-Arabi and Reuters.

              The reason for this demand of the “Army of Islam” is to prevent a change in the demographic composition in the region. Now Guta is inhabited mainly by Sunni Muslims, and President Assad is a Shiite. Although Shiites are a minority in Syria, the authorities give them preference, so they are considered the most loyal to the current regime. Accordingly, populating Guta with Shiites would be a kind of guarantee that the region would not become a stronghold of the opposition again.

                  In this conflict, the Alawites are classified as Shiites. The Alawites are too few and in the general context they do not represent a role in the confrontation between Shiites and Sunnis.

                  "The Alawites are the current (sect) of Shiite Islam, with which it is united by the veneration of the cousin of the Prophet, Caliph Ali. Alavism originated in the XNUMXth century in the Middle East. This religious movement incorporated the features of Ismailism and Gnostic Christianity, and as a result it turned out" explosive mixture ”of Islam, Christianity and various pre-Islamic beliefs that existed in these territories.

                  Today, the Alawites make up 10-15% of the population of Syria, their total number is 2-2,5 million people.

                  Despite the fact that Alavism arose on the basis of Shiism, it is very different from it. Alawites celebrate some Christian holidays, such as Easter and Christmas, perform only two prayers a day, do not attend mosques and can drink alcohol. The Alawites venerate Jesus Christ (Isa), the Christian apostles, they read the Gospel at their services, they do not recognize Sharia.

                  And if radical Sunnis from among the fighters of the Islamic State (ISIS) are not too good with the Shiites, considering them to be “wrong” Muslims, then they generally call the Alawites dangerous heretics who must be destroyed. The attitude towards the Alawites is much worse than towards Christians or Jews, Sunnis believe that the Alawites insult Islam with the mere fact of their existence. "

      Judging by the massive missile-bomb processing and the serious transfer of additional forces, a powerful offensive is planned. Another question is that in 5-7 days, Western diplomacy and the media and the right-left defenders will disappear ... And Russia will convince the Syrians to arrange a “cease-fire” to please the Syrians again.
      But while a powerful operation is being prepared. For example, in Khmeimim, an almost unprecedented simultaneous number of transporters. They say they are used to transfer troops to the Hama airport, closer to Idlib.

      Turkey of course. It is quite official, and does not hide it. Idlib - under ground control of the Turkish army. With the consent of Russia. But air is under the control of the aerospace forces. Which is also agreed. Russians do not bombard Turkoman and Arabs collaborating with Turkey. But it’s allowed to bomb Nusra (the former Al Qaeda).

    “The quickest way, it was a mistake to get into the“ Middle Eastern mess ”without understanding the relationship of forces. Sunnis against Shiites, all together against Kurds. In Syria, joint patrols with Turkey (including whining of“ patriots ”about supporting pro-Turkish Sunnis who, in turn, are against Assad) and in Libya, meanwhile, the war is on the side of the field marshal against the pro-Turkish forces "

    It was clear that all these deliveries to Idlib Barmaley measure temporary, and still they will not calm down and in any way they will finish them off.
    And the fact that the “strategists” talk about the prolongation of the war is also clear that the Syrian army does not have enough “gunpowder” to simultaneously clean up the entire territory of Syria, so the bearded were given the opportunity to regroup by cleaning up territories that could be included in a single and indivisible one.
    Now the time has come to “collect stones”, and most likely some people screwed up from the jihad enclave in Idlib, not only fanatics and duroholies accumulated there, but also people who are able to somehow assess the situation in the country.
    Now it's time to re-create Syria.
    Slowly and the northern regions will join.
    Or join.
    And the choice will have to make both the Kurds and the Turks.
    Not all at once, there were times of blitzkriegs, but they passed a long time ago.
