Media: The strategic initiative in the north of Latakia again passed to the militants "Jebhat al-Nusra"

44
Syrian military sources report that in the province of Latakia, the Dzhebhat an-Nusra militants are increasingly moving away from direct clashes with the Syrian government army units. Instead, they use suicide bombers, who carry out explosions, approaching the positions of the SAR forces.

The lives of no less than 10 Syrian soldiers, including marines, claimed the suicide bombing of a Djebhat al-Nusra bomber in Latakia. Several dozen soldiers were injured.

As a result of the terrorist act, one of the flanks in the northern part of the province was exposed, which required a rearrangement from the Syrian troops. At that moment, Djabhat al-Nusra struck several mortar attacks on the positions of the SAR troops, which led to the retreat of the Syrian troops from the strategically important district of Kaliyat Shalaf.

The jihadists instantly captured the height left by the government forces, which allowed them to seize the strategic initiative from the Kinsibba locality. In order not to be uncovered by militants, the commander of the SAR army unit decided, along with the detachment, to leave positions in one of the quarters of this city.

If you believe these messages published AMN, then one suicide attack in Latakia actually led to a significant change in the distribution of forces in northern Syria. Al-Nusra’s accounts already publish photos of a young suicide bomber and promise him a “wide road to the Hourias”.

Media: The strategic initiative in the north of Latakia again passed to the militants "Jebhat al-Nusra"


All this suggests that if the full-scale anti-terrorist operation in Syria does not find its continuation, the militants with the help of terrorist tactics may well regain control over those territories that they had previously repulsed with such great difficulty and considerable losses.

          If their will would cut off funding and go find those ghouls who work for free.

          They don’t want to block the funding, and this is the war.

        The longer the war lasts, the more such as in the photo of "Semi-finished product" falls into the hands of terrorists. A person who has an education and not only secular, but also religious (academic) will never commit suicide, taking with him to the next world a dozen if not a hundred lives. Unfortunately, many of the "BEIBIBACHES!" they did not even hold the Koran in their hands and did not delve into what is written there, preferring to listen to those "mullahs", "dervishes" and "preachers" who drive over their ears turning them into living weapons of mass destruction.
        And the Syrian army men could be advised to have at each post, if not a BMP-2 with its 30 mm 2A42 shredder, then at least a ZSU-23-2, at worst a pair of 14 mm KPVT (12 mm DShK / NSV may not be enough) - which guarantee the penetration of the "MAHMUDMOBILEY" welded with steel sheets. Otherwise, such attacks will only increase in number, because the enemy sees their effectiveness, and he has a lot of "zombie semi-finished product" as well as explosives, and the effectiveness of a successful "bang" is many times greater than from several days of fighting hundreds of people for a given height / checkpoint.

      The author’s desire to show the scale of the battles is understandable. But:
      As a result of the terrorist attack, one of the flanks in the northern part of the province was exposed, which required a reorganization of the Syrian troops.

      The feeling that tells about the tin soldiers located on the desk ...
      What are these "epic" battles, where:
      If you believe these reports published by AMN, then one attack by a suicide bomber in Latakia actually led to a significant change in the alignment of forces in northern Syria.

      I admit that I don’t know much. But...
      What are these "flanks" and the troops that are bursting at the seams from blowing up one suicide bomber in a "jihadmobile" negative

        True, this is not a war, but some kind of sur. Perhaps the Syrians are not equipping their positions, but quietly sitting on the sand, if a car (!) With a suicide bomber can break through to their location? There is an old law "Stop - dig in", but, apparently, it is not written to the Syrians.

      Yes, there is no exact information, so they write everything that Allah sent to his soul.
      One thing is clear: suicide bombers cannot successfully conduct combat operations with normal troops, just as it was impossible for anti-tank dogs to stop German tank formations at one time.
      If the Syrian government forces cannot quickly defeat the Barmaleans, this means that they are weak, relatively small, and there are many Barmales and they have significant support among part of the population and, of course, Saudis and Qatari people there.
      What to do ?, what to do?
      Reconciliation is possible with those, it is necessary to bombard the rest not with a couple of dozen aircraft, but with a full-fledged (over a hundred aircraft) mixed bomber-assault air division.
      Let the remaining accomplices of the martyrs traded in KSA, to Merkel and Erdogan, etc.

      So, Nusra and Ahrar are another Caliphate - the JAF coalition or the Conquest Army. They especially so far no one blocked the oxygen. And in eastern Aleppo, without bread and TOU, there were basically all kinds of Zinka and Nusra’s allies in Aleppo (which is why most of the JAF refused to carry out release strikes and beat Castello, only Nusrachi and Zinka actually participated there).

      Caliphate, which is Black, they are much east and they are not very good. Moreover, with JAF, Black has a mortal feud.

    All this suggests that if the Syrians do not stop suffering from garbage and start to resist, according to the principle "Not a step back", and everyone will think that a good uncle will come and defeat their enemies, then it will continue.

    I don’t understand who is FIRING like that? These are not military actions, but some sort of "Zarnitsa". From the SAR. They leave key heights, they cannot simply NOT GATHER IN A CROWD, exposing themselves to the blow of a suicide bomber, they leave their positions, you see, they are "uncomfortable" when they are shelled ... Ugh, God forgive me. So they can fight BEFORE THE SECOND COMING.

    Why panic? The front line in Latakia is stretched so that neither one nor the other lacks forces. Every day, the same heights and villages pass from hand to hand several times. Tomorrow two branches will come to the place of the deceased branch and this will be a major transfer of government forces, and the strategic initiative will return to the SAA in view of the serious advantage that has formed.

    In my opinion, it was impossible to agree on a perimiry and "non-aggression" zones. Terrorists retreat there, re-form and attack again. The Russian General Staff understands this perfectly well, but made concessions for the sake of what we do not know about. I hope this "something" was worth it that the Syrian guys are now suffering losses and God forbid ours. Well, what could the Indos have to offer, because all these moderate and immoderate terrorist associations are their henchmen.

    Until, instead of the "paradise road to the gurias", they will not pack these "heroes" in pig skins and store them in latrines (toilets), will nothing change in the brains of the barmaleev? Still, the experience of both the British and the Israelis must be "adopted and applied in practice"? Mr. Cat, I am answering your question: "Where is the work on the upcoming ones?" Is the numerical superiority still on the side of the barmaley approximately in a ratio of 3: 1 (330 to 000)?
