Clashes betweeen pro-government forces and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) have resumed in the Bayt Jinn pocket west of Damascus.
Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) claimed that its members made some gains against government forces as a result the night clashes. However, the whole situation remained the same.
The militant-held villages of Bayt Jinn, Mazraat Bayt Jinn and Mughr al Mir remained fully encircled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies.
HTS’s video depicts the last night clashes:
Following the liberation of the Qaboun district in eastern Damascus, the SAA may start an operation aimed at retaking the Bayt Jinn pocket.
Russia and government have night vision helicopters with strong fire power ¿ why are not they use here ? ¿ lack of defense coordination ? or what.
They can’t be everywhere at the same time.
Russia can have enough equipment it it would like to and be able to detect any motion at any point in Syria land. Yes, I know that Russia does not have enough equipment to finish the war fast.
I don’t underestimate their capability. With what they have in Syria now, it is impossible to be everywhere at once.
