Support SouthFront

On April 20, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS; Jabhat al-Nusra) and its allies froom the Free Syrian Army (SAA) attacked a position of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near Tall Rasha in northern Lattakia, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

Pro-HTS activists claimed that HTS fighters had killed fifteen officers of the SAA during the attack.

Meanwhile, Syrian pro-government sources said that the SAA had repelled the attack and had recaptured the positions within a few hours. The sources also acknowledged that ten SAA officers had been killed and two others had been injured in the attack.

In response to the attack, the SAA artillery shelled several HTS positions around the town of al-Tufahiyah in northern Lattakia. The SOHR confirmed that the SAA shelling had not led to any civilian casualties.

Local observers believe that the attack is only aimed at boosting the public support for HTS in northern Syria, as the radical group is currently involved in the so-called “war of abolition” against the Syrian Liberation Front (SLF). HTS has carried out several similar attacks against the SAA for the same reason since the beginning its war on the SLF on February 19.

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) is a euphemism for Qaida. (SLF) Syrian Liberation Front is a merger of two gangs of Orcs as odious as Qaida or Daesh. It really doesn’t matter what the Orcs call themselves, they are all “moderate” headchopping, pedophile, cannibal Orcs. They are all supported by France, UK, US (FUKUS) and by Saudi, Hts, Israel, Turks (SHIT).

FUKUS & SHIT very suitable abbrevations

I’m not too knowledgeable about religion, Baljeetji. I usually comment on politics or military strategy. I judge the participants by their actions. If they are Orcs and behave like Orcs, I call them Orcs. :D

HTS is Nusra Front and SLF are the same as HTS names are meant to confuse but remember all are Al Qaeda linked groups.

Does SOHR use “officers” as a synonym for soldiers? I can’t envision how 15 officers and zero soldiers could die in an assault.

Jim Prendergast

Yes. Mistranslated.


It’s the MI6 Observatory for Peddled Lies.


Maybe they were attending an officer workshop? ‘How to become a better commander! With special panoramic view window on the Jihadi frontline!’

Richard M

My guess is that SOHR doesn’t know the difference between a Colonel and a Corporal. :D

Jim Prendergast

Their time will come.


At the end HTS and SLF will hand over their all weapons to SAA to take these weapons otherwise we will kill more our brothers.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
