FSA & Al-Qaeda Unite Efforts To Attack Syrian Army In Northern Hama

Illustrative image

On April 26, several groups of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the al-Qaeda-affiliated Horas al-Din launched a new attack on positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northern Hama countryside capturing the village of al-Hamameyat, according to several Syrian opposition news outlets. The sources said that the militants had destroyed a Gvozdika self-propelled howitzer and an armored vehicle of the SAA during their advance.

According to Syrian pro-government sources, the SAA responded to the attack by shelling gatherings of the militants in northern Hama with heavy rockets. Moreover, Russian Aerospace Forces warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on positions and vehicles of the militants on the front lines in northern Hama.

As a result of the SAA heavy shelling the militants withdrew from al-Hamameyat an hour after capturing it, according to Syrian opposition sources. The militants withdrawal could mean that the attack failed.

The attack was the first large offensive of Horas al-Din, which was formed by seven groups linked to al-Qaeda on February 27. This fact didn’t stop the FSA from cooperating with the radical group during the recent attack against the SAA.

    Quick response and quick result. Syrian army SAA is emerging. Be careful FSA is not the Syrian army this is a Fake Syrian Army like HTS, SDF, YPG, ISIS etc. created by US, UK and France.

    • as

      I think about the time SAA worked an airborne infantry.

      • Rob

        You mean in Deir Ezzor?

        • as

          In general i mean. Elite units to be dropped behind the enemy lines.

          • Rob

            I think thats hapend in Deir Ezzor if I am not wrong.

          • Toni Liu

            Thats great especially if they had like us air cavalery that able to move fast to whereever they need, but the problem that kind tactic now is, tiger like forces are too precious for saa to doing that, making most saa general uneasy if many casualties happened to them, so better get many air transport and air support right now before doing that

    SAA and their allies should use larger telescopes, infrared cameras and drones.

  • Rob

    Russia have played a very significant role in the peace and stability of the region to eliminate instability from the region created by US, UK, France, Saudi Arabia and Israeli migrants. Therefore, every country want to ally with Russia in the region-

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      Not all of them. Some say they want but their alliance it is with west so if the russians, dont start using their brains and do what the americans and english did along with the rest of the stooges then russia will repeat all the mistakes of the past, the ones before them did, in the name of politics.

    The wine vineyards were the real target because while Erdogan cant enjoy a fine goblet of Syrian merlot they have to ruin it for everyone.

  • Paul Barbara

    As a Christian Brit and with most of my relatives in the States, I confidently state that the US, British, French, Saudi, Quatari etc. ruling elites are Luciferian sh*tbags.
    The Russians and Syrians (and Palestinians and others) are the real Muslims and Christians: ‘by their fruits though shalt know them’.

    • David Parker

      But Islam is still a fraud and the duped Moslems are going to have to wake up and smell the coffee someday and renounce their lifelong religious quest to take over the world by violence.

      • Elisabeth Jenders

        It’s not the religion, but your interpretation of it. Any religion can be misused as a means to suppress people or as a justification to kill others. Christianity has a lot of blood on its hands, too. It’s time we saw what religion is meant to be: to connect us to god and live from the heart.

      • as

        You can compare the statistics of both. Which one have more kills/deaths ratio between each religion. Muslims terrorizing uses suicide bombs. Christians terrorizing using Bombers, Fighter jets, Drones etc etc.

        • Bru

          I would say : Christians and atheists governed by zionists.

          • as

            Exactly. His position somehow Muslims gets all the blame plus the casualties.

      • Merijn

        The Fake-Muslims that want to take over the World are the Salafistic JeWahhabis from Saudistan….an ideology…not a Religion… Devilworshippers under the Guise of Islam…

      • You can call me Al

        NO, it is not – stop mixing up Wahhabism with Islam. Islam is a culture, more than just a religion, a way of life, but actually the vast majority of it is relatively peaceful.

    These are very dangerous times – people are increasingly becoming aware of the intrinsic evil in their Western financial/war mongering /thieving ‘rulers’; but these same ‘rulers’ are not on the ropes; they still have immense power.
    Why, oh why, does not the Russian Federation EXPOSE the ‘Operation Gladio’ False Flag atrocities?
    I say ‘expose’ because though the information about the atrocities committed by the so-called ‘stay-behind’ groups set up by the CIA shortly after WWII is in the public domain, most people are unaware of it due to MSM not publicising it.
    The exposure of incontrovertible evidence of the CIA-led groups committing atrocities (such as the Bologna train station bombing, 85 dead, hundreds injured, and the Brabant Massacre) so as to blame the ‘Reds’ or Left wing groups will explain the Skripal and Douma ‘False Flag’ hoaxes.
    Then they could (and should) publicise the true story of Israel’s murderous, treacherous attack on the USS Liberty, with LBJ’s collusion in 1967 (see ‘Operation Cyanide’ by Peter Hounam).
    Let’s get the ‘Truth Out’, as the MSM are run by, and in the pockets, of the perps.

    • Merijn

      The Russians are already working on the “Exposure” Part for a couple of years… takes sum Time for Dumbed Down Sheeples to get it into the little bit of Grey Mass they’ve got left….

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    So the FSA and al-Qaeda affiliated rebels are coordinating, does that mean Erdogan who backs the FSA is also complicit. The FSA is made up of several groups that were once fighting alongside al-Qaeda and committed the same sorts of atrocities as they did, so this doesn’t surprise me at all. I still remember the images of that 10 year old Palestinian boy’s head being sliced off and the liver eating incident these pieces of trash published themselves, that’s before they left the al-Qaeda affiliated groups they were in and joined the FSA. Now they work for Erdogan they’ve become respectable, they no longer cut little boys heads off, they don’t eat SAA soldiers livers, and they don’t even trample and desecrate dead female fighters bodies any more. Erdogan must be a really good man to have made them change their evil ways, they’ve become good rebels now.
    I don’t think President Assad will ever forget what they did though, hopefully one day I’ll get to see images published by Assad of these guys sitting in a Syrian prison slowly rotting away for the things they’ve done. Erdogan should be sitting right there beside then too if there was any justice in the world.

    When the dust of the war settle…….a new, battle hardened SAA will rise……….and Israel will be the next battle………..

    • David Parker

      Exactly why Israel has been in this since 1948.
      The Moslems have from day one pledged to kill the Jews, which equates to everyone living in Israel today.
      Now, if, just for a change, all the Moslems would wake up to the fact that Islam is a complete sham and try to live in peace with everyone else and build things and live for something instead of being so ready to die for anything, peace might just break out.
      If the Arab would would realize that the powers that be manipulate all peoples to fight among themselves and just stop fighting except in defense, maybe we could smoke out the satanists who maintain continuous wars.

      • klove and light

        WTF are you high or just a zionist motherfucker???
        The zionists came from EUROPE……they went to palestine and literally killed thousands of men , women and children….they butcherd them, treated them like animals and sent the survivors in to the desert.Its not a fabrication(the zionists even admitted it), they went into the villages(dont forget the native palestinians had no arms to that time what so ever), took children and women and men, tied them up and threw them down the water-well, then they threw grenades down below and made the rest of the villagers watch, so that in a hell of fear they would spread the word ” The jews are here now”…
        SO AGAIN FUCKO::::::FUCK U AND ALL ZIONIST JEWISH CHILD KILLERS BURN IN HELL…..
        AND AS I OFTEN STATED..THERE WILL BE NO PEACE ON PLANET EARTH AS LONG AS JEWS THAT BELIEVE IN THE TALMUD, ARE ALIVE
        ps.they were banned from entering great britain for 300 years,in spain,malaysia still banned jews today,etc…for a good reason…read the talmud and u understand perfectly..we all non jews on planet earth are just gojim to them.our non jewish women are all whores(thats talmud quote)..all animals are filth(talmud) a jew can always betray a non jew(talmud) etc……..

        The Islamic State (ISIL) was originally an Al Qaeda affiliated entity created by US intelligence with the support of Britain’s MI6, Israel’s Mossad, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Presidency (GIP), Ri’āsat Al-Istikhbārāt Al-’Āmah ( رئاسة الاستخبارات العامة‎).

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          • Sakaramanga

            damn right. all are entwined aren’t they.

    • You can call me Al

      Hezbollah and the PLO + other Palestinian groups are there – ho ho ho……tick tock.

  • Bob

    Unified attack means militants factions are likely under pressure and getting desperate – they still need to make some noise, and kick up some dust, to please their foreign sponsors – but with diminishing strength they require assistance from other factions to manage it.

    • hamster

      What about you, Bob?

      • Bob

        Are you querying the status of my strength? Lol.

    Good Strategy..: If Headchoppers Attack… Turn their Frontline into a Pile of Smoked Meat….
