Assad promised to continue the offensive in the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo

Syrian government forces will continue the offensive with the goal of freeing the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib from terrorists. This was stated by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in an address to the Syrian people.


According to the Syrian leader, the liberation of the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib from terrorists of all stripes will continue, despite external pressure, especially Turkish.

We are fully aware that this liberation does not mean the end of the war or the destruction of terrorism. Success in Aleppo and Idlib is a prelude to the complete defeat of extremists, which will come sooner or later

- said Assad

The President of Syria addressed the residents of Aleppo, thanking them for their resilience in the conditions of "severe blockade" and expressed hope that the city will be restored from the ruins that it turned into during the war.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump said he wants to "put an end to Russia's support for the atrocities of the Assad regime." He spoke about this in a telephone conversation with the Turkish leader Erdogan, held on February 15.

Trump thanked Erdogan for "preventing a humanitarian catastrophe" in the province of Idlib and expressed hope that Russia would cease to support the "Assad regime" and move from military operations to a "political settlement."

As previously reported, the United States refused to participate in the ground conflict in the Idlib province on the side of Turkey, but said they would assist in obtaining intelligence and supplying Turkish troops.

    Interestingly, does he somehow coordinate such statements with ours?
    Or does the taste of victory begin to score a flair?

      Interestingly, but how do you think such a coordination should look like? "Can I say his to the people that we will continue to free our country from terrorists? ", - so what?
      In fact, he is the legal leader of an independent state. Although it depends on our videoconferencing, they are entitled to make such statements. Without agreeing with anyone.

          Now the time has come when it is possible to decide by force - whose Idlib will be after the defeat of the remnants of the Islamic State and others on its territory - Syrian or Turkish. But what consequences this Victory will have is a very unpleasant question, although answering it for Assad is probably better in the rank of the Winner who took Idlib.

            And it is right! The winners also have to answer, not infrequently, but their support is completely different, real, in contrast to the drowning, vacillating and, especially, retreating, losing their positions!
            He needs a little \ enough help! This is already our task, at all levels.

        So Putin and Erdogan agreed on something without asking Assad’s permission, and he suddenly breaks the whole game? Kurtosis excess?

          So are you talking about words or deeds? You already decide somehow, otherwise in the first post you just didn’t like the statement, and then for some reason you remembered about matters. That Assad does not shine without the support of the videoconferencing, there is no reason to doubt it somehow.

          The intensity of our air raids is simply unprecedented. And what do you think, if not the support of Assad and his goal of liberation from the Turkish-Nusrov yoke?

            It is strange that no one has yet said that Assad SAM made a decision and uses our videoconferencing system without warning Putin or Shoigu about this. wassat So I imagine - Putin is sitting with Erdogan and, hanging his head, says to him: “Well, I can’t do anything with this Assad! Sorry, dear friend Erdogash ... let's talk about tomatoes better ...”

        Do not forget that in 2015 he was actually the head of the city of Damascus. Only thanks to Russia did he remain the head of state, which today returned significant territories. Therefore, the statement to continue the liberation of the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib has been unambiguously agreed with the Russian Federation. Because without the support of the Russian Armed Forces, Assad Erdogan cannot be overcome.

      Today in Moscow the military commissions of Russia and Turkey sit on the situation in Syria (Idlib). The Syrian President expressed his position in the media, as if a message for negotiators (specifically, Turkey). The president is obliged to do this, since the question of his country is being decided without him. yes hi

        Further options are possible - Assad’s statement was made right now in order to influence Turkey’s position in the negotiations, or it could hurt on the contrary.
        Putin and Assad talked and decided together (!) how best to act / speak.

      The ambassador of the president of the country should know both the armed forces and the civilian population. Moreover, judging by the literal quote, there is no pathos and bravado in Assad’s words request

      We are fully aware that this liberation does not mean the end of the war or the destruction of terrorism. Success in Aleppo and Idlib is a prelude to the complete defeat of extremists, which will come sooner or later

    And what, is it necessary to coordinate? He never hid - his goal is to free his country from terrorists and invaders who climbed there. And because the "Obama regime" or the "Trump regime" call him the "Assad regime" - black does not turn white (I do not mean Obama). Americans, Turks and other French people cannot even intelligently explain to themselves what they are doing, Israel is just jackal, numbing the Golan. And to rejoice at the presence of "American liberators" is not for the Syrians. This is for the Germans and the Japanese (occupied countries), or Poland-Ukraine-Romania - these themselves see themselves only in the role of world slaves.

    They have already brought about 10 thousand soldiers and about 100 tanks into Idlib.
