Syria, April 9: militants blocked the road to a Russian patrol in Idlib

52

The situation in various provinces of Syria remains tense. Regular clashes between the militants themselves added to the constant clashes of radical groups with the Syrian Arab army. In Idlib province, militants did not miss a Russian military patrol.


As you know, the Russian and Turkish military, according to the agreements, patrol sections of the strategic highway M4 in the province of Idlib. But the militants of the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham organization banned in Russia once again prevented patrolling. Having blocked the highway, they let in only Turkish soldiers, and the Russian military police were denied access. The Russian military did not resort to harsh measures. It is reported by Baladi Network. Official confirmation of the incident has not yet been reported.

Also in Idlib, the construction of observation posts of the Turkish army continues. Another checkpoint was recently erected in the village of Ariha, after which dozens of soldiers of the Turkish armed forces were transferred to the settlement. In total, by now the Turkish army has already built 57 observation posts and, apparently, is not going to stop.

In the meantime, the Syrian Arab army was again forced to fire artillery shells on the positions of the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham militants. Fire was fired on the fortifications in the area of ​​the villages of Al-Fatyr and Safuhan. Syrian artillery deployed on the outskirts of the city of Maaret al-Numan, thus responded to the firing by the KHT militants of the positions of government troops in the vicinity of the village of Flyifel. In addition to artillery, Syrian Air Force reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicles also participated in operations against the militants. Also, the Syrian military discovered a cache weaponsused by militants.

In the province of Aleppo, the Turkish army fired on the positions of Kurdish formations in the vicinity of the villages of Umm al-Khash, Ahras, Tal-Karah, Tel-Susan and Ain-Dakna. Fire on the positions of the Syrian democratic forces was also opened in Hasaka province, where in the vicinity of the villages of Tel Tamr and Abu Rasin, the Turkish army and the Syrian National Army, controlled by Ankara, attacked the Kurdish fortifications.

On the border of the provinces of Deir ez-Zor and Raqqa, near the village of Maadan, clashes occurred between Kurdish fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces and Damascus Shia militias that operate in the area.

Interestingly, clashes between the radical groups themselves are increasingly occurring. In the province of Raqqa, there was a conflict between the militants of the Al-Jabhat al-Shamiya group and the so-called Syrian Free Police. From the "free police" the militants of the "Syrian National Army" demanded to lay down their arms in connection with the crimes committed by the "free police".

In the province of Aleppo, in the village of Nabi Hara, an attempt was made on one of the field commanders of the Jaish al-Nuhba group. Assassinated the life of an influential militant of his "colleague" from the group "Ahrar al-Sham." As it turned out, the two groups did not divide the zones of influence and property taken from local residents.

For the same reason, militants of the Jebhat al-Shamiya and Jaish al-Islam groups in the Ashikibar village entered into a clash in the clash. Here they could not divide the house from which the family of civilians was expelled. In the village of Basut, the conflict broke out already within one group - the “al-Hamza division”. Her militants could not agree among themselves on who would receive the money from control over the supply of smuggled cigarettes to the area.

In the province of Hasaka, militants continue to loot. Thus, members of pro-Turkish groups occupy houses abandoned by civilians in the zone of the operation "Source of Peace" conducted by the Turkish armed forces. For example, the militants Ahrar al-Sharqiya and Al-Jabhat al-Shamiya, numbering about 900 people, arrived in the city of Ras al-Ain, in the northern part of Hasaki province. They occupy the homes of local residents, and settle in houses not only themselves, but also lodge members of their families.

Against this background, it no longer seems surprising that Bassam Sioni, a member of the HTSh shura, resigned from his post. Just yesterday, we reported that the influential field commander Abu Malik at-Talik left the ranks of this group, expressing disagreement with its policy, and now the second notable figure is leaving the KhTS.

          Basically. I understand your indignation. You have completely substantiated your position.
          But personally, I don’t understand your desire to aggravate the conflict.
          I certainly don't like it either. that the Turks made conclusions from the defeat - a real, but local defeat near Idlib.
          Despite some successes and very serious losses, they lost South Idlib - the agricultural areas that fed this unreleased part of Syria - they could not be completely swept out.
          At this time, the situation is balancing on the verge of a serious war between Syria and Turkey.
          If it does happen, nobody will be better off. Especially Syria. Do you not understand this?
          Yes, I’m far from the idea that Turkey, as some wrote here, is all peramohe .... but in the furnace of this fight. first of all, the population of Syria will go .... and of course, Turkoman, who already have no chance - they will be burned either here or in Libya - they are not needed in Turkey.
          But!
          The fact that they didn’t let our VP in and let the Turks go, and they drove into the hands of both us and the Syrians, when the SAA takes the next blow, Erdogan will be poked in the nose with a bunch of similar violations of the documents signed by him.
          And he is exactly the same as recently - shouting a little ... he will calm down and reconcile ... :))))
          And do not underestimate the moment.
          Personally, I do not see anything extraordinary and pan-specific yet ... and what was not expected by us .... so far all the events play into Syria’s and us’s hands.

            Yes, just do not care what kind of piece of Syria Turkey cuts itself. In this way, it only bogs deeper and deeper into the swamp of another military conflict on its southern border - they have little Kurdish problem, which they can’t solve ...
            In general, after reformatting the World after the Crown Epidemic, there will be local genocides. And Bl. Vostok is the first in line.

              The fact that Turkey is bogged down - yes, it is.
              A piece of Syria for Erdogan - it became too small, which is less than he had originally expected - but it became even worse than a suitcase without a handle - if you drop it, then where to put the cockroaches divorced in the suitcase? :))) What can be done with the multimillion-dollar monetary and many-thousandth human losses?
              Well, as for the rest - I will not answer you - I do not have enough baseline data to draw conclusions about genocides, reformatting of the world and other results of major epidemics.
              Sorry.

            A colleague of "Cowbra" is absolutely right - this patrolling is not a military tool, but a political one. In the Kremlin, Edik committed himself to jointly patrolling the road and delimiting control on both sides of the road between Ankara and Damascus, and he is not responsible for the "bazaar", which cuts off his own opportunities for political maneuver in case of aggravation of the situation. The fact that the militants did not open fire suggests that Edik was aware of this provocation and gave such a sanction. I do not think that the militants are such an independent element, which rules over the questions of who from the patrol to get through and who does not. The time will come, they will ask him. In the meantime, all these jambs are scrupulously recorded and entered into a single register of unfulfilled obligations on the part of Edik.

      It seems very strange to us because we do not know the real state of affairs - who is fighting there and for what. If the people, i.e. the majority, for Assad, why have they been fighting for so long? Is it only because foreign countries help the "militants"? And what other factor can affect?
      Why does Assad not want to give the Kurds autonomy? Because he does not want to get negative from the Syrians? Or maybe she’s afraid of strengthening the Kurds? We don’t know anything! We get truncated one-sided information. I want to believe that my country is on the side of truth and justice.

        If people, i.e. the majority, for Assad,

        Most are against Assad. Assad is an Alawite, and Alawites are only 10% of the population of Syria. In the Arab religious-clan structure of society, the minority cannot rule over the majority. Historically, starting with Pope Hafes, Alawites held key positions in the army and special services - this was not considered prestigious and monetary. So the Assads were kept solely on "bayonets".
        The majority of the population of Syria are Sunnis. The Christians, I hope, have all left Syria. The Druze live in their enclaves and enter into alliances depending on the nomenclature and the situation - then with Assad. then with the Sunnis.
        If the Iranians, Hezbollah and Russia had not come to the rescue of Assad, in 2014 Assad would have repeated the fate of Gaddafi.

      Vasya, but you don’t think. what if our militants did not miss. were they ready for an acute reaction on our part?
      What if our people began to "shoot", then they would have been burned with the help of, for example, ATGM. or something else?
      This is a deliberate provocation in which the Turks are involved - since they have passed - and this is a provocation - in which we - did not plunge.
      "Shoot" someone should be when - when you are in control of the situation, and, preferably, you have an advantage - otherwise it is unreasonable losses. Of course - if the matter has not come to the brink, and you are not fighting on your territory.
      The patrol completed one of the combat missions. It has been established that the Turks "do not control the bandyukov", the Turks did not ensure the execution of the agreements on their part - and when the next time the bandyukers begin to pressurize - such facts will poke Erdogan in the m ... face - and he will eat it, like last time.
      And where is the place for local battles with some Turkish slaves, or their masked special forces of our easily armed air forces? What for? What is the purpose of the clash? Unlock the track? So the Syrian army will cope with this, together with the VKS. and not one and a half offices VP on four machines ...

        There is no evidence that the Turks do not control the militants completely without this incident. Where is more? The patrol did not fulfill the combat mission, since it could not pass along the intended route, but completed the secondary political task as you wrote. But is risk justified for this?
        And it’s better not to get into provocation at all, in this venture with joint patrolling of the disputed territory, our patrol as a bargaining chip looks like which you can donate for politics ((

    The Turks, once again, were not able to secure their obligations.

    The state of providing any zones, joint patrols and other things, are nothing more than intermediate stages on the path to the complete liberation of the territory of Syria from terrorists and renters.

      The militants were already firing at the Turks, somehow they also didn’t want to substitute, some of the militants did not control Turkey at all.
      In general, a gradual settlement in Idlib is a long process, in February we managed to squeeze out a part, despite the Turkish tantrums, then there will be the next cast and a new conference = political decisions

      If the left foot itches, you will catch up. If the right foot itches, they will catch up with you. If the left pen itches, then they will give money. If the right pen itches, then all the babos will be taken away. If the back and ass are itchy, then you need to go to the bath and wash. So do not think about how to wash Russia, but go and take a shower yourself.
      PS We in Syria are not obliged to engage in skirmishes with all the bearded scouts represented. because we are performing other tasks. And yet, yes, the scouts know about this and do not shoot at the forces represented by the patrol, since after that irreversible consequences will come for them. Those stupidly "vyzhivayutsya", ours routinely record it, everything is in business. There is no disaster.

    They survived .... Already the militants do not let the Russian military pass ... And what, will this continue for a long time? Are we in Syria instead of clowns? Then the mattresses blocked the road and our equipment circling the obstacle got stuck in a swamp everyone laughed at us, took off and laid out on the Internet, now the Barmalei are completely cut off and also block our road, absolutely not afraid of anything .. I’m shy to ask what our boys do there then ? Will the RF snot chew for a long time? In the Donbass, as they killed the Russian-speaking, they still kill, in Syria they began to become impudent! What the heck is that?

    And why, these madmen have not yet been equalized with dust? Of course, maybe for the first time and to warn ... But for the second time to transfer the coordinates and burn this whole booth ... so that others do not later discuss the issues of democracy ..
