Click to see the full-size image

Troops of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces are working to secure the villages of Qasabiya, Humayrat, Hardanah and Qirutiyah, which they have recently liberated from militants in northwestern Hama.

Despite the tactical success in the area, SAA and Tiger Forces units sill have to consolidate their gains if they want to develop an advance even further.

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and Turkish-backed militant groups have concentrated a notable force north and east of Kafr Nabudah. This force is preparing for both offensive and defensive operations against pro-government forces.

    Taking land by force is a strategy of before 1960 in which first generation wars were used. This is 2019 in which 5th generation war is effective. In this war goals are easily achieved by intelligence with out using force.

    Erdogan should take some lessons with Putin.

    Note: Trump encourage wars for weapons sale.

    How come in WW2 the warring parties could advance at speeds of like 50km a day for weeks on end when on the offensives, but in Syria every time the SAA takes even the tiniest of shitholes, like even basically some local outhouse, it has to stop in order to ‘consolidate its gains’? Sometimes I think ‘consolidate its gains’ is Syrian speak for gotta have some tea and biscuits first before we get off our asses again. And it’s Southfront speak for ‘nothing happened in Syria today’, but we gotta fill an article so there.

    They say that Italian tanks have more gears for reverse then forward, and I suspect that Syrian tanks have more gears to go even slower. Ah well, they say slow and steady wins the race. So here’s hoping at that!

      Now, don’t be silly again Barba, you know why;different types of battlefield. The battles we see now, would be similar to those in towns and cities, where the Krauts were pushed back into.

      It’s because the SAA and Russia pummel the rebel held areas so heavily 24/7 that all the civilians have to move away due to lack of sleep, then the SAA just move in and attack the totally sleep deprived rebels when they lose their human shields, and then they do the same thing all over again, slow going but safer.
      And I’m only half joking and half serious, both civilians and rebels need sleep, and they aren’t getting too much lately, maybe there’s just an ounce of truth to my semi humourous claim.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    I’m more worried about the Turkish OB posts now, they’re not only totally in the way of any complete SAA advances, they’re also still strongholds for some rebel factions still opposed to Assad, so even if the SAA do manage to get past them, it will mean some rebels will possibly remain behind SAA front lines. That’s if the rebels are located/stationed near the Turkish controlled OB posts when the SAA go past them and they don’t attack the SAA, they’ll possibly just remain where they are under Turkish protection as the SAA go past them. Not too many military commanders would let that happen if they could help it, so I wonder what the hell they’re going to do about the OB posts when they’re finally put in that situation.
