Syria, April 16: 5 thousand new militants in Idlib and another Israeli Air Force strike

36

The situation in Idlib remains tense. Up to 5 thousand militants are expected to be transferred to the Syrian province, but it is possible that they will have to fight not only with government forces.


Clashes between government forces and militants of the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham group banned in Russia are currently ongoing in Idlib. Firing by fighters of positions of the government troops of Syria was observed in the vicinity of the village of Al-Bara, as well as at the heights of Jebel al-Zawiya. At first, the militants fired at Syrian positions, after which the artillery of the Syrian Arab army covered their positions with the fire of their guns.

Interestingly, the HTS found itself a new enemy besides the Syrian Arab army, the Russian military contingent and Shiite militias. And this enemy is quite dangerous for the group, especially since it has solid support.

Numerous reinforcements are being sent to Idlib by the Syrian National Army (SNA), one of the opposition’s armed groups oriented towards Turkey and supported by the Turkish armed forces. Presumably, the SNA will transfer 5 militants to Idlib, who will have to ensure the rule of law in the provinces and protect prosecutors and Sharia courts. An agreement to perform these functions has recently been concluded between the leadership of the SNA and the Turkish military command.

There is no doubt that the main purpose of the transfer of SNA units to Idlib is to provide a counterweight to Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham. The fact is that recently this radical group has been demonstrating unwillingness to obey the requirements of the Turkish side. Following the clashes in the KHTS protest camp, clashes between the KHTS and SNA fighters took place near the M4 highway. Information has appeared on the network about the threats of the KhTSH militants against the Turkish military. The radicals promise to chop off the head of every Turkish soldier who will be caught while patrolling the M4 motorway.

Obviously, the transfer of SNA units to Idlib was sanctioned by the Turkish command, including for this reason: Ankara is going to use controlled groups in order to "put in place" the presumptuous HTS militants. But it is possible that militants of pro-Turkish formations will act against government forces.

In particular, over the past day there were clashes between units of the Syrian Arab army and a detachment of the pro-Turkish group Jebhat al-Wataniya lil-Tahrir. The collision killed one of the field commanders of the group. In the city of Gerablus, in the province of Aleppo, SNA militants clashed with militiamen previously of the al-Jasat tribe.

Also, according to local sources, a convoy with killed and wounded militants of the Syrian National Army arrived in the regions of Aleppo controlled by Turkey and its allied forces. In total, 126 people entered Syria, who participated in the hostilities in Libya on the side of the "government of national accord."

As you know, Turkey periodically recruits and sends to Libya to protect its interests the militants of controlled groups operating in Syria. There are many who wish, since the Turks promise to pay 2,5 thousand dollars to each militant. Only, as we see, far from all come back alive and unharmed from an African country.

Another interesting event occurred in the area of ​​the village of Jadet-Yabus in the west of Damascus. Here, an unknown unmanned aerial vehicle struck a car. It soon became clear that the car bombed by the drone had Lebanese numbers, it belonged to the Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah group.

The Israeli Air Force inflicted a blow, which during the war in Syria bombed hundreds of times the objects of both Iranian Shiite groups and Hezbollah, and the Syrian government forces.

This time, apparently, the Israeli military hoped to eliminate Mustafa Mugnia, the youngest son of the late Imad Mugnia, who led the intelligence of the Shiite group. In addition to Mustafa Mugniya, the officer of the Iranian special forces, which is part of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, was also in the car. Interestingly, both Mugniya and the Iranian survived as a result of the Israeli strike.

For attacks on Syrian territory, Israel uses both aircraft flying from Lebanon and unmanned aerial vehicles. The Lebanese leadership has already expressed its indignation that Israel is using the country's territory to strike at a third state.

        Israel - reminds a flock of jackals. Cowardly and vile

        A pack of jackals does not happen a priori. Jackals live in pairs.
        Probably only such a "connoisseur" of the animal world as Kipling could call the jackal vile and cowardly.
        Let it be known to you that jackals occupy the second top line in the order of dogs after domestic dogs. Many modern historians are inclined to believe that the dogs themselves were domesticated by people from jackals, and not from wolves. All kinds of jackals are considered monogamous. Animals form a family union once and for a lifetime. Both parents are very gentle, caring and sensitive, they together equip their home and raise their offspring, take care of each other, do not abandon their sick or wounded spouse. Jackals have a lot of enemies in the wild, because this is not a very large predator. The wolves and ordinary dogs act as ill-wishers in relation to jackals, although the latter often coexist peacefully with them, rummaging side by side in the same landfills. Defending his offspring or spouse, the jackal will rush without hesitation on any enemy. In conclusion, I would like to add that many negative and shameful character traits that can be traced in some works, legends, films and cartoons are undeservedly attributed to jackals. If we look in more detail at their life activity, consider habits and customs, then the opinion of these interesting predators can change in a positive direction. In addition, the jackal can be easily tamed, and he will become a faithful and devoted friend, no worse than any dog, and maybe even better.

              The Middle East lived on its own foundations. It was THEIR order. THEIR culture.

      Will not dare. Ankara today made a decision to release 40 people convicted in "connection with the coronavirus." It seems that not all, but the "good" part of these "lucky ones" will have to work out the "amnesty" in the Syrian expanses. Most likely in the Libyan expanses too. winked

        It was an irony, colleague! If everything was so simple, everything would have been settled long ago! Is the release of 40000 convicts a fake, or reliable information? I have not heard about it! If true, it will not simplify the matter, but will not greatly affect the result. The Sultan is an emotional person, but not to the extent that he runs the ZK to work out freedom in the fields of Syria - his NATO colleagues will not understand him.

          Yes, fullness to you. For NATO colleagues, human life, much less alien life, is the same consumable as toilet paper. It makes no difference to them who toss cartridges and weapons if these weapons are directed against Assad. In principle, Edik also has a resource without convicts from which to draw militants - these are several million refugees from the same Syria who are in Turkey. And the fact that the ZK is going to be released because of the pandemic, yesterday the news channels cracked about it. hi

            Because of the pandemic, many countries of the world released some prisoners who were convicted of relatively light deeds. For example, Azerbaijan also released those prisoners who spent a long time in prison and had 3-6 months left until the end of the term. The Turks did the same For the war, as you have already emphasized, there are enough resources without these prisoners.

      Israel Air Force Strikeswhich during the war in Syria bombed hundreds of times the objects of both Iranian Shiite groups and Hezbollah, and the Syrian government forces.This time, apparently, the Israeli military hoped to eliminate Mustafa Mugnia, the youngest son of the late Imad Mugnia, who led the intelligence of the Shiite group. In addition to Mustafa Mugniya, the officer of the Iranian special forces, which is part of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, was also in the car. Interestingly, both Mugniya and the Iranian survived as a result of the Israeli strike. For attacks on Syrian territory, Israel uses both aircraft flying from Lebanon, and unmanned aerial vehicles.

    Here Edik thought of how to deal with the idlib, well done.
    Some irreconcilable militants will hammer the other most irreconcilable)
    The survivors in Libya, or even where else the conflict will be drawn.
    And, judging by the payment, half of Turkey will be recorded in the SNA, because I doubt very much that the Turks and their army receive 2,5 thousand greens each.
    Accordingly, we’ll have a cleanup of the idlib from hts + a solution to the unemployment problem in Turkey.
    Accordingly, a decrease in social tension in the country.
    And judging by the sn and the Kurds will go on recording)

    If anything raises doubts about the "authorship" of the described blow, it is just the mentioned circumstance .. And so, well done.
    As for the material itself, there is no connection between these two news feeds - the transfer of militants and the attack on the terrorists' car. "There is an elder in the garden, and there is an uncle in Kiev."
