Government Forces Repel Militant Attack In Northwestern Aleppo

Donate

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) have reportedly repelled an attack by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) and local groups of the Free Syrian Army in the area south of Masarat al-Khan in the northwestern Aleppo countryside.

According to pro-government sources, the attack took place late on February 3 and resulted in no gains for the militants. There are no confirmed reports about the casualties of the side.

The number of militant attacks in the Aleppo countryside as well as in Damascus and southern Syria will likely group in the coming weeks if the SAA and the NDF continue making gainst against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in the heartland of the “Syrian opposition”, the province of Idlib.

    I don’t agree with this assessment. The terrorists will increase their attacks if the Syrian government forces don’t keep up the pressure and the momentum to clear all of Idleb from the Turko/Zio/US foreign mercenary terror squads. Idleb is NOT a Zio/NAZI terrorist property. It belongs to the Syrian people and the sole legitimate and elected Syrian government who were made hostage by these foreign terror mercenaries.
