Fighting resumed in the south of the Syrian province of Idlib

42

Fighting has resumed in the Syrian province of Idlib. After several days of shelling by pro-Turkish militants in the direction of the positions of the Syrian government army in southern Idlib, the SAA began an operation to suppress enemy fire activity. Syrian troops are striking clusters and infrastructure of militants in the area of ​​the village of Fatira, from which the most active shelling has been going on recently.


According to the latest information, as a result of the military operation in the south of Idlib, one of the field commanders of illegal armed groups was eliminated. His name has not been announced at the moment.

Meanwhile, representatives of the so-called armed opposition in Syria claim that the operation of the Syrian government forces in southern Idlib is also supported by the Russian military aviation... In particular, it was announced that air strikes were carried out in the Jabel ez-Zawiya area. There was no official confirmation of participation in the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Recall that some time ago the so-called observation post of Turkish troops was withdrawn from this area. The Turkish command decided to move it north. This post was often used by militants as a kind of shield: militants literally hid behind it after shelling of territories controlled by Bashar al-Assad's troops. The Syrian media stated that it was precisely because of the approach of the SAA that it was decided to transfer the military from this post to the north.

Reports indicate that the SAA is striking militants in the al-Zawiya mountains, as well as in Kafr-Uweid. For this, rocket artillery is also used.

        It is no longer relevant for a long time, after the Saudis had a fight with Qatar, and in general this idea is questionable, here Russia sometimes suffered with Ukraine, Poland because of the pumping of gas, and Qatar in this case becomes dependent on a huge number of varying degrees of reliability of transit countries , it is much more reliable to build up a gas carrier fleet, which is actually what Qatar is doing.

            Well, the project itself was extremely utopian and was rather used as a scarecrow.

            Current political situation:
            Resource giver Qatar is in a state of cold war and minor mutual mischief with the KSA.
            KSA is in a state of cold war with Qatar, with periodic advances of the Abrams along the border and overflights / overflights of 40-50 F-15s along the ribbon.

            The bottom line is that any gas pipeline is impossible without a change of government in Qatar or Riyadh.

            A change of power in Qatar is impossible without a war with Turkey, which is the guarantor and has placed a military base in the country, which, by the way, is also being expanded now. And of course, even if the Qatari regime falls in favor of the Saudi (as in Bahrain), Turkey will take revenge and shit, that is, there is no way to stretch the pipeline through Syria with the broads and without Assad.

            A change of power in the KSA is possible, but unlikely to a pro-Turkish / Qatari one.

    Our drone UAVs were so praised here. And when should they be used if not in Syria? It's a shame. They would write that UAVs are used to correct strikes. When the Turks began to use their UAVs, the Syrians howled. It is not at all clear when this war will end.

      Not in the foreseeable future. Our media distort the cause of the war in the least bit. The militants are not the cause, the militants are the effect.

And when the province can not stand the power ... Guerrilla in complete pleasure. yes And there are no reasons for changing the picture. So ... All this for a long time, for a very long time.

        "But the agricultural districts got sick dramatically" ///
        ---
        Got sick from the drought that lasted in the Middle East for several years in the 00s. In addition, Turkey blocked the Euphrates with several dams of hydroelectric power stations on its territory. Less water reached central and eastern Syria.
        The peasants went bankrupt and went to cities where there was no work. Assad did not develop industry. And they fell under the influence of Islamist agitators. All this led to the outbreak of a civil war in 2011.

          Got sick from the drought

          Drought? From how ... So, information for. From just one ephrat, even taking into account the one taken by the Turks, Syria gets 150-200 tons of water. Per second. And under 4 billion tons per year. And there is also an exit to the tiger. So there is about 5 times more water ... Only from these two rivers, and the list is far from exhausted by them, for every Syrian there is a thousand tons of water. For the rational management of agricultural more than.
          Drought is not the problem. The problem is that about 1/7 of the irrigated land in Syria. And land reclamation ... It is basically inaccessible to small private traders. All the more modern. This is a state level problem. And the new chapter, as a true liberal said - no agricultural day, all health and good mood.
          Just did not take into account that the army, including, and from such village sayids were recruited. And she preferred to quietly run away from such a creative leader. Can you imagine the scale of desertion? There were 300.000 in the ranks, more than 100 thousand various paramilitary formations, 350 thousand reservists. Now 150 thousand are not. One in five approximately. Although ... In fact, it's even worse. The self-defense forces, read volunteers, are in the region of 120-150 thousand. Given that there are 3 to 4 million capable of carrying weapons. There is no desire to think about why 1 out of 20 is ready to defend their ruler? Why in Belarus about 5% of the population ended up in partisans, and in Syria not even partisans, and on their own land to support the power and 1% did not accumulate ?: I understand, it's hard to think. It's easier to grab quotes from the media. yes

      Damn, I got this kargokult. am It’s like a child was shown a beautiful toy and he runs around with it. Attack drones are just one tool. No more. Specifically, Bayraktars are an inexpensive replacement for front-line aviation and attack helicopters. All. They came as a surprise to the Syrians last year for only one reason. According to the agreement with us, Turkish drones flew there constantly and the Syrians were not afraid of them. Therefore, when the Turks began to support the militants from the UAV, at first they had successes. But as soon as the SAA pulled up air defense systems, these successes ended, and the UAVs began to go astray. The result is the repulse of Serakib and the m5 highway.
      Bayraktars are not a prodigy, but simply an inexpensive replacement for strike aircraft. Their value lies in the fact that it is easier to train an operator than a pilot and they are cheaper. And it is easier to establish a permanent watch. Therefore, out of nearly 200 countries, 80 percent is a good choice. But there are also many disadvantages.

    It is possible and necessary to solve the problem with Idlib a couple of years ago.
    But they began to maneuver, looking for compromises with the Turks.
    We started a "tomato policy".
    The militants buried themselves in the ground, covered themselves with Turkish checkpoints, and got time for regrouping and planning.
    As a result, we were completely overwhelmed. Every day - attacks on our checkpoints, armored columns, SAA units.
    Now you have to start all over again.
    Without victory in Idlib, there is no final victory in the Syrian campaign.
    And if we don't need a victory - was it worth starting?
    For the sake of the memory of the dead guys, the case needs to be completed. Throw out the barmaley in Turkey. Return the oil-bearing areas under the control of Damascus. Well, or Novak - as you like ...

    A dozen Orions were transferred to Syria to practice strikes against barmaley, the tactics of use were perfected day and night. For one, the tactics of use were tested, possible shortcomings were revealed and all types of weapons were tested for use with UAVs
