On January 13, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, captured the strategic Tell al-town of Daman and the nearby hill northeast of the Abu Duhur airbase in eastern Idlib, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.

The media outlet added that the SAA also captured the villages of Tell Ahmar, Tell al-Sheh, Qala’t al-Sheikh, Mazra’a, Umm Amod, Hanytiyah, Maktaba, Tell Huysid, Abed, Shuyhat al-Lahab, al-Safa, Tlail al-Safa, Binan, Umm Jirn, al-Zira’a, Burj al-Ruman, Hafrat al-Hass and Abu Ghata, Jub Jassem in southwestern Aleppo.

The Hezbollah media wing also confirmed that the SAA and its allies repelled Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) attack on their positions southwest of the Abu Duhur airbase and secured the villages of Rabay’ah and al-Khuraybah there. Syrian soldiers destroyed two VBIEDs of HTS while repelling the attack, according to the source.

Moreover, pro-government sources confirmed that Russian warplane destroyed three heavy VBIEDs and a convoy of HTS in Khan al-Subul village in southern Idlib. Syrian opposition activists said that the VBIEDs explosions killed several civilians in Khan al-Subul.

Meanwhile, HTS and its allies launched the third counter-attack against the SAA and its allies southwest of the Abu Duhur airbase. The HTS-linked news agency Iba’a claimed on January 13 that HTS fighters captured the villages of Talab, al-Dabshiyah, Musharifah and Tell al-Khazanah.

Several Syrian pro-government activists doubted Iba’a claims because the HTS-linked news agency published several fake news in the last few days in order to raise the low morals of the Syrian opposition supporters.

    I hope saa don ‘t close the corridor east of airbase. Let them flee. No big roads there. They can only take wat they can carry.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      not sure, they will do. while isis removed its fighters, these green jihadists love to be encircled.

    • gustavo

      You are forgeting that the terrorists have Israel-USA-NATO(Turkey) support, and they can provide weapons anywhere anytime. Better to eliminate them.

    • Toni Liu

      Let them go with a green bus if they want to, otherwise let buratino smoke them

  • PZIVJ

    While the Jihadist are concentrating on the west flank and the airfield, they are loosing the pocket.
    Good news

      There wouldn’t be a war without it being fabricated and supported by evil Jews. You’re another one of the two faced hasbara trolls on this site like DN.

        I believe he hate jews too why you attack other at the same train with you

        • RichardD

          You’re mistaken. He’s a two faced ziotroll who has attacked me many times. Ask him about the Palestinians and all the Jew’s crimes against them and everybody else and see what type of response that you get. He probably won’t even respond.

    Finaly SAA has enough manpower to strech front line in several directions… Victotry is almost there…unfortunately gen. Issam is not here with us any more to see all of it…

    • Sephy

      They are squeezing HTS from 3 directions. HTS can’t win this battle.

      • Thegr8rambino

        its like coordinated attack patterns of velociraptors :)))

    • Thegr8rambino

      he is with them and us in spirit!

  • Rob

    Every day Syrian and allied forces liberate 16 to 22 villages. This is called the talent, capabilities and strength. Now I wish to see Syrian and allied forces liberate 40 to 50 villages per day.

    • Thegr8rambino

      inshallah they will :)))

    i feel as though once abu dhur airbase is retaken, SAA should (for now) hold off on advancing further and really strengthen and fortify their newly acquired positions. because idlib is a huge area, and so far SAA has pretty much taken about half of it. as they are digging in, maybe they can buy some time by negotiating a ceasefire or some kind of temporary deal with the militants, and then once they feel ready, begin taking the rest of idlib. what do you all think?
