SAA left to take control of less than 25 km of the M5 highway between Aleppo and Serakib

SAA left to take control of less than 25 km of the M5 highway between Aleppo and Serakib

The Syrian army decided the main efforts in the west of the country to focus on taking control of the M5 highway, which from Aleppo through Serakib and Maaret al-Nuuman runs virtually across the country - to Damascus and further to the southern borders. Artillery and aviation Syrian forces managed to increase the ledge north of Serakib and west of the country's largest city - Aleppo.


At the moment, under the control of the SAA in Idlib and Aleppo, there remains a section of the M5 road with a length of less than 25 km. This is a section from the western sector of Al-Rashidin to the Al-Qusanbiyah region. At the same time, an important transport hub in the Az-Zarba region remains under the control of the militants, where, in addition to several roads, the railway runs from Aleppo towards the Mediterranean regions of the SAR.

Against this background, Turkish troops continue to cross the border unauthorized. A new convoy of Turkish troops and equipment is moving from the village of Reyhanli towards the administrative center of Idlib province. Currently, the Turkish convoys have passed the settlement of Sarmada in Idlib, continuing to move south.


M5 site, which remains under the control of militants


Meanwhile, in recent weeks, several Turkish "observation" posts have appeared on the territory controlled by the SAA. These are the posts of Tel-Tukan, Al-Eis, Maar-Hitat, Surman. Ankara’s supply of supplies to these Turkish posts was no longer possible without direct agreement with the Russian side.

      Stupidity.
      Israel certainly wants to weaken Syria, but not at the expense of strengthening Turkey. Therefore, the Turks will not play along. The French, too, need a unified and indivisible Syria than help to the Turks. And just like Israel, the French do not want to strengthen Turkey.

          If, let's see whose take, then why is this stupidity about the "expulsion of Russian".
          You first decide on your preferences, and only then voice it.
          Well, the Franzics pushed to the pie section ....

          What is a pie?
          You even have no idea about the alignment of interests around Syria.
          Russia just does not interfere with the French business plans in Syria. But the USA and Turkey are very. Paris, of course, will not say it aloud, but would very much like to see no Turks or Yankees in Syria.

          You need to take a more responsible approach to your comments. There is no question of “expelling the Russians from Syria. And no one in the world will take this, all the more so,” Frances ”. As long as you pass off your Wishlist for reality. It is very reminiscent of Khokhlyatsk-Bandera dregs .

      An unlikely combination. Israel has its own goals, Turkey does not coincide ... France is not about that. There, at the junction of Syria and Iraq, French special forces were “rummaging around”, and the aircraft carrier, most likely, was relocated to Zaefratye to support it. Idlib and the French? What about purcua?

        Turkey justifies its stay in Syria with the need to prevent global migration flows to its territory ... and protection from terrorists .. And if terrorists from Syria are hiding in Turkey, following the same logic, can Syria destroy them there? ..

          However. In general, it’s logical, but the point is that Syria can get rid of the “bearded”, Americans and Turks on its territory, and how the latter will deal with ghouls in their estates, the ATS is deeply purple. It will take more than one year, a decade, to repair and clean up the republic after the invasion of barbarians of various stripes.

        Edik had already established the transit of bearded to Libya with the payment of 1 thousand bucks a month, and now, due to the reduction in territory, he no longer needs so many parasites as a “guard”. Now he will carry out "state optimization" and drive them to Libya, but for 500 Baku, while the Syrians have completely fired them here.

    The outcome of the battle is not decided on m5. The front is torn at Kafr Nurana to the north. If they break through, then they will go to the rear of the broads on m5 and at Aleppo. And they themselves will run away from there. M5 will smoothly wring out. The main priority is north, from there the Turks move towards. It is necessary to get ahead of them. Cut off the supply of Idlib.

      I would very much like to. Only I doubt that THIS time the goal is ALL Idlib. I believe it will end with the return of the M5 with adjacent territories and part of southern Idlib. Glad I will be wrong!

      Idlib, if we mean the provincial capital, is supplied primarily by a road running from the northwest. At the moment, you can cut it or at least take fire control in only one way - bypassing Idlib airport from the north, strike between El Atarib (with its capture ideally) and Marat-Misrin, with subsequent access to Sarmada. But this option with weak flanks is fraught with a boiler for CAA. It’s better to let the M5 clean up, after this the transfer of units around the front will go much faster.

Try to tear your ass from the couch, go there to put up barriers and drive out all those who are objectionable, if you think that everything is so simple. Suggest not what, but HOW to do it. Only, again, without any "vigorous loaves" in Washington, Tel Aviv, Ankara and Brussels.

    Leading such an attack for the sake of several villages and a piece of shomse is at least stupid. Losses during the gnawing of the defense were not small. The idea is to cut off at least the eastern part of the enclave to Aleppo, and, if possible, further, to the Turkish border. Take the barmaley in a bag. Cut the highway to Idlib.

    Assad will receive his M5 without a fight. Everything has already been agreed with Turkey, Russia and the Greens. Assad will take the M5 and Al-Leramon ledge, while the opposition will retain part of the territories of Idlib, Hama and Alllepo with its capital in Idlib. This education is preserved by analogy with Karabakh, peacekeepers are introduced to the border and the conflict is allowed to cool for 10 years.

    Otherwise, they will get into the boiler, and then on the world TV, or suddenly evaporate, as in Aleppo during a meeting of field commanders after an exact hit.
