      Now the main thing is to prevent an exit, stop attempts to break through from the outside, cut off the supply of ammunition, form a second ring - and slowly, systematically Destroy!

        Well, the Turks rush to the rescue, the ammunition is brought out in the open.
        On the night of January 28, 2020, a large Turkish military convoy passed through the Kafr Lussein border checkpoint in the north of the Syrian province of Idlib, which immediately went to the southeast of the region, where active fighting is taking place.

        The convoy consists of at least 30 different vehicles. Of these, 12 are armored vehicles, the rest are trucks carrying “material and technical equipment”.

        In the morning of January 28, the convoy actually reached the front line. Part of it went to the city of Serakib, another to the Turkish "observation post" near the village of Maar Khattat on the M-5 Damascus-Aleppo highway south of the city of Maarat al-Numan.

          Already rushed. Mike Pompeo is already squealing on the air. Meanwhile, the road along which the supply of the barmalei was cut by the CAA. Local "barmaleyks" from among the self-defense forces are negotiating with the military to switch to their side in order to assist in the destruction of the true barmaley, under the guarantee that they will not be prosecuted and amnestied. So the city will be cleaned up soon.

    I remember how an Arab-Syrian sat in my office and told me that Russia could not do anything, because the USA did not succeed - after all, they had already wet the igil for many years. in 2015, it seemed that way it would be.

    And local patriots wrote about Afghanistan 2.0 and that Putin is saving the rating. as usual. (he has been saving their rating from them since 2008, when he raised the allowance for officers)

    But nothing, at first comes rejection, then acceptance. And all this against the background of the caravan.

        If it was all a matter of training ground. There has been a geopolitical battle with high stakes for a long time and with far-reaching intentions.
        elimination of Iranian statesman number two is just one of the links in the chain of anti-Iranian policy measures by the United States, Britain and Israel.

        The combined efforts of these three states against Iran has a long history, and the war in Syria (2011-2018) is a direct consequence of the mutual actions of the tripartite alliance in the Middle East. As you know, this war also had at its core the interests of the United States and its allies. As Robert Kennedy Jr. of Politico said: “Our war against Bashar al-Assad did not begin with the peaceful civil protests of the Arab Spring in 2011. It began in 2000, when Qatar proposed the construction of a gas pipeline worth $ 10 billion through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey. ”

        Bashar al-Assad chose another project - the transit of gas from Iran to Lebanon, for which he paid for the war and the destruction of the state. ISIS architects * conceived this project not only against Syria, but also against Iran with the further prospect of developing success throughout the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa. Not fused.

      These go wild to keep the province of Idlib under their control. But, although they hinder the maximum advance of the SAA with the help of arms supplies, coordination of groupings and agreements with Putin on a ceasefire, the Syrians, with the support of Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, are slowly liberating their lands.

    Good news. Yesterday and building up such an outcome, it was necessary to pressurize and surround. And so it happened)))). Only again, families will probably be released, then the humble (for two days) militants, creating a problem for the future. Here they’ll be cleared, and in another place it will break again. They should all be wet and not listen to the cries of democracy))))

        It is clear that we, as it were, are far from baking. It's a shame when the barmaley are allowed to leave, grabbing a family, and each kid also has a machine gun)))). And when they come to their senses, heal themselves from the Turks, receive $ € £, weapons and ammunition with equipment from the coalition and go on the offensive again. ...
