Media: Syrian army regained control of the city of Maaret en Numan in southern Idlib

Another positive news came from Syria. Following the information about the complete encirclement of the city of Maaret-en-Numan, which is of crucial strategic importance, data appeared on the capture of this city by government forces. It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to a military source.


According to the news agency, the Syrian army has established full control over the city of Maaret-en-Numan and has already begun to mine.

Army units began to consolidate their positions in Maaret en Numan. At the same time, the engineering forces of the Syrian army began to mine

- RIA Novosti source said.

Information about the capture of the city was confirmed by the portal Al-Masdar. According to him, government forces not only took the city, but also knocked out militants from the former military base of Wadi al-Deyf, also located in this province. According to the portal, the militants defending the city decided not to continue fighting for it and retreated. As a result, fighters of the 25th division of the special forces of the Syrian army entered Maarat-en-Numan.

Earlier it was reported about the complete encirclement of the city by government forces and the continuation of the offensive by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). Maaret-en-Numan himself is located in the south of Idlib province and was a major outpost of terrorists from the Jebhat al-Nusra group, banned in Russia.

The ongoing offensive by the Syrian government forces seriously worried Turkey and the Turkish Defense Ministry issued a statement in which it threatened a decisive response to the Syrian troops if they would threaten the security of Turkish observation posts in Idlib.

Despite the truce announced on January 12 in Idlib, the regime continues to kill civilians by attacks from land and air, causing them to become refugees in difficult winter conditions. In the event of a threat to the security of our observation and control points operating under the agreements in Astana and Sochi, the most decisive and tough answer will be given

- said in a statement.

In addition, according to Syrian human rights defenders, in the province of Idlib, the recently hushed White Helmets again “stirred”. The appearance of the “White Helmets” was recorded in the village of Einat in the province of Idlib. In total, local residents counted more than 40 people in 6 cars. It is assumed that these "figures" will once again try to provoke using a chemical weapons to accuse Damascus and disrupt the offensive.

        There is a huge pocket between Latakia and the returned territory, where there are no large cities and front lines.

        I suppose that soon this ledge will be cut off and finally will deliver a powerful blow to the fortified area on the mountain patch in Latakia.

        And then Serakib and Idlib.

    The news, of course, is good. But isn’t it too early to mine? And the full environment did not work out.
    Reporting success is always pleasant.
    Well, I’m better off the sofa: there’s nowhere to attack, we need to gain a foothold and withstand the counterattacks of the regrouped barmalei. And there self-liquidators for a couple of types of mines will work ....

      Yes, do not worry. They moved west and north along the M5 to Aleppo. They are full of nudes ... This is the largest city in the province and, in fact, knocked out the ducks without much effort. Further countryside, it’s easier there.

          There were rearguard fights on the eastern outskirts to cover the retreat. But they bomb them mercilessly along all the escape routes.

            there were rearguard fights to cover the retreat.

            And that's bad. So they learned how to conduct such fights and break contact. We can say that they departed in perfect order without falling into the fire bag. And this is also bad.
            bomb them mercilessly along all escape routes.

            Classics of the genre. Studied with Nestor Ivanovich? Now they are scattered in small groups (unworthy goals). By tomorrow evening (if control is not lost) regroup and counterattack forces to the battalion with support .....

        If you have the strength, then you can’t stop. It is necessary to develop success, not to entrench, to smash the rear. But the Turkish observation posts should not be touched, but stupidly left in their depths. Let them watch.

      They think. They already have a couple of roadblocks in the rear of the SAA, they guard themselves and maintain the appearance of presence. In Idlib, Turkey was supposed to restore order in September 2018, but failed, and now the CAA is doing it for it. The bearded will be crushed to a zone of 30 km agreed with Turkey. which Turkey intends to control along the border as part of the creation of a "security belt". The question is - What to do next with them? Bandigans will tuck into this zone with their families, and they won’t beat them there. This is Ankara's sector of responsibility.

    During the swift offensive, the Red Army did not always go on the assault on cities, bypassed them and continued the offensive. Can it also do the same with Turkish roadblocks and American bases? Bypass, leave them a zone within a radius of 2 km and let them see what they want there. .

      Not Aleppo, but Palmyra and the concert is not Deliev, but Gergiev. And then they fought with ISIS, i.e. black, not green and from Hayat Tahrir Sham as it is now. So there is nothing similar between the events.hi
