Idlib: jihadists suffer heavy losses


The counter-offensive of the militants in Idlib choked. Observers have already recognized him as "unsuccessful."

According to AMN from Lebanon, jihadists in the southeastern rural areas of Idlib governorate today tried to recapture the areas occupied by the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) in December last year.

Opposition jihadists from the Tahrir al-Sham group (banned in Russia) launched an attack, sending the first two suicide bombers. With the help of suicide bombers, it was supposed to break through the defenses.

And at first it seemed that the militants would succeed.

Following the suicide bombings, the jihadists stormed the Syrian Arab army, intending to further seize the Al-Tah settlement, located south of Jardjanaz.

However, the attack of the jihadists was ultimately repelled by the SAA troops - the opposition suffered heavy losses west of Al-Taha. Losses were suffered by both Tahrir al-Sham and the so-called Syrian National Army, currently supported by Turkey.

According to a source from the 25th division of special forces, Syrian troops managed to capture two jihad mobiles that were used on Thursday to attack.

Now the Syrian Arab army secured territory in the southeast of Idlib. CAA is preparing to go on the offensive. It will take place in the coming days.

      Their masters convene the UN Security Council to talk about the "situation in Idlib." You can’t take them for a ruble, for twenty. With them it is necessary to curtail diplomatic relations, and everything else. Otherwise, people will die.

          First, Erdogan no longer holds anyone (with the acquisition of the S-400) for the Faberge, but presented complexes for the analysis of the United States; secondly, Turkey openly rescues (like the United States) its bearded fosterlings, in words proclaiming the fight against ISIS.

            At the expense of a Turkish salary of $ 2000: a good burden on the Turkish budget, that I doubt such a salary for these scum of society from all over the Middle East and not only from it.
            Personally, my opinion is: to engage Erdogan in the Libyan conflict to the fullest. Let it be spent, especially since there are countries for which the presence of Turks is not even desirable and this gives a lot of room for maneuver of the Russian Federation.

      It is possible that the issue of Idlib will be resolved in the next 2-3 months. Of course, this mainly depends on the success of the offensive that is being prepared. Judging by the situation, and the reaction of Turkey, this attack is already seriously afraid. hi

    This is how much in numbers then?
    Or is this the writing style without specifics, or the author himself knows nothing.

    The Turks wouldn’t be themselves if they didn’t try to shit on us through Syria! It is necessary to "accidentally" strike Turkish military installations in Syria, "help" the Haussites in Yemen, "help" in Libya in the fight against the Turkish occupation corps, which Erdogad sent to Libya. ..

      Turkey should know its borders and not go beyond them. stop Where she intervenes, she must not go unpunished. And Erdogan is not eternal either. He has both external enemies and internal ones who are ready to dump him as soon as possible.

      Erdogan has cannon fodder in the form of 4 million Syrian refugees. The Russian Federation will probably throw money for transit through the Turkish stream. This music will last forever.

    What kind of losses are these - these are very large? Judging by the events described in the article, they are simply huge! FIVE bayonets? or even SIX!
    And there are two suicide bombers, two cars, an import jacket - two, a domestic cigarette case, too, two!
