The militants refused to surrender the city of Maaret al-Nuuman in the Syrian province of Idlib

The Syrian army will continue the attack on the city of Maaret al-Nuuman in the Syrian province of Idlib, the militants refused to surrender it without a fight. This was stated by a member of the Committee on National Reconciliation Umar Rahmon in an interview with the Syrian media.


According to Rahmon, the Syrian authorities invited the militants controlling the city of Maaret al-Nuuman to surrender it without a fight, thereby saving their lives and not endanger the local population, but were refused. The authorities made a proposal to surrender the city on Monday.

Terrorist groups operating in Maaret al-Nuuman refused to begin any kind of reconciliation, despite the strong desire of civilians to return to the bosom of the state

- he said.

On Monday, Rahmon said that despite the fact that the Syrian authorities proposed that the militants surrender the city without a fight, the chances of this are negligible, since the militants do not make independent decisions, but act on the orders of Turkey. He also said that terrorist families had already been taken out of the city to the areas controlled by the Turks, only civilians who had nowhere to go remained in it. The militants themselves are counting on Turkey’s help and the established bad weather, which could delay the offensive.

In view of the almost impossible ceasefire, fighting will continue until Damascus Maaret al-Nuuman returns to control

Rahmon said, adding that the city has been controlled by militants since 2012.

Earlier it was reported that the Syrian government army, breaking through the defenses of militants in the province of Idlib, is conducting an offensive in the direction of the city of Maaret al-Nuuman. The purpose of this operation is to establish control over Maaret al-Numan, as well as the city of Sarakib located north of it. Government forces are trying to regain control of two strategic highways - the Latakia - Aleppo and Hama - Aleppo highways.

    Terrorists are doing poorly; we are waiting for unidentified EG aircraft.

      the evil rock of failure has been haunting them since Russia introduced them there to the Middle East in 2015. For 4 years, the terrorist dregs of BV have been groaning on video content, and they have prevented vomiting from slaughtering Christians, Alawites and others.

      Our special forces walk along the paths along which the apostle Paul went. And she drives into the corner the whole shushara who forgot where her place is. But some waffles still do not understand what we are doing in Syria and ask with tears in the eyes of the members of the VO forum - what did Russia forget in Syria?!?!

      The answer is: crushes all the scum, which place in hell.

        The answer is valid.
        Only there is a question.
        On our own initiative, we began to rid the planet of scum?
        And the second.
        And do not tear yourself alone?
        Do you know how many and where are those who finance all this?
        And even temporary fellow travelers tomorrow a knife in the back stuck.
        We are completely alone in this world.
        And even the loss of one person is a tragedy for us.

        "our special forces walk along the trails" in fact, OUR MILITIES DO NOT PARTICIPATE in ground operations. We provide significant assistance with air cover, and without the help of the aerospace forces, SAA is unlikely to achieve much

      Maybe Jewish pilots are already bombing Syrian positions? .. No wonder they are stubborn, hope for a “world community”? .. Along the way, a truce is waiting to leave. angry
      That’s always the way such operations usually end in BV and it has been going on for decades .. And it’s profitable for Israel to see it ..
      US freestuffs oil freelance them and weapons for free ..
      Yeah..

    Here it’s clear to the hedgehog why they refuse .. They are waiting for “help” - the Israeli strike on Damascus, etc. Already probably quietly bombing ..

    Today, December 25, 2019, Syrian government forces resumed the offensive in Idlib province. Intense battles are taking place between the cities of Dzhanjanaz and Tel-Mannas (Mennis), Gadfa near the village of Fauran.
    South of Dzhardzhanaz special forces units, 4th and 7th fur. divisions broke through the defense of the Islamists and knocked out at least three settlements. Under the control of government forces, the villages of Babulin, Kafr-Basin and Al-Amudiya passed.
    Front-line commandos of the 25th division reached the M-5 Damascus-Aleppo highway opposite the large village of Khish. 2 km. to the north is another Turkish "observation post". If one succeeds in taking Hish, it will be possible to bypass from the south the main center of fighters in the southern Idlib of the city of Maarat al-Numan.

      In the depot.
      Maps of changes in the situation in the public domain, for example, https://syria.liveuamap.com/en do not reflect the offensive (though they express primarily about the "green" position).
      Either the forces group CAA for the subsequent offensive, or everything for the greens is not too good that even the results do not display.

        Most likely both. Government troops have not yet advanced deep enough, and the affairs of the barmalei are so lousy that he decided not to show on the map.

      But green ships and planes can deliver all this shobla to Libya. Turks there also need fighters.

          In the north of Zaevfraty, the demarcation is already completed; there is not much need for SNA. Idlib is the estate of the KhTS now, and they are controlled by the Saudis. And to the Turks there is no special sense to ruin their proxies there, protecting Idlib. Well, maybe those who are too wild and out of control. That’s the thing, throw 10 thousand to Libya. There is infa that already 2 thousand have been thrown and in the near future another 200 people will be thrown. Salary - 2 thousand dollars a month. Well, at least they are promised so. But most likely cheated. request

              To the Turkish Embassy. laughing Just promising does not mean getting married. Most likely, this party is simply sent for slaughter in order to delay the onset of Haftar. request
              Well, so. According to rumors, our people in Syria and other places pay about the same. Combat is doubly. Just considered a battle - usually on the conscience of the commanders. May be so. Shooting has begun - the stopwatch is on. The shooting subsided - off and the fighting stopped dripping.
