Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Is Working To Revive Its Depleted Special Forces

Support SouthFront

In an attempt to take advantage of the new ceasefire in Greater Idlib, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) is reportedly working to revive it depleted special forces, known as the “Red Bands.”

On March 15, opposition activists revealed that the group’s special forces is carrying out a large recruitment campaign in Greater Idlib.

HTS released a poster calling on its members who are in a sound physical condition and have “free time” to join the so-called Red Bands and the Inghimasi force, which is mainly responsible for suicide attacks.

The terrorist group’s special forces were depleted in the recent battles against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Greater Idlib. Dozens, including highly-experienced personnel, were killed or injured during the clashes in western Aleppo and southeast Idlib.

While HTS presents the Red Bands as some sort of an elite unit of super soldiers, the truth is far from this. The unit’s fighters are often killed immediately by Syrian or Russian airstrikes.

HTS attempts to revive these units show that the terrorist group is not willing to respect the ceasefire agreement, that was brokered by Russia and Turkey earlier this month. The group openly rejected the agreement, vowing to continue the fight against Syrian government forces and their allies.

Well, great news coming from Russia…” the focus of Putin’s vision of what Russia should be in the coming years in which Putin will remain as leader, is centered on moving Russia from a country with weak and marginal capabilities in the Middle East to a country that will have the largest impact in the region.

According to Putin, Syria is the starting point of his project, “It is necessary to achieve a complete victory [in Syria] to move forward with more Russian influence in the Middle East, with the isolationist orientations of the U.S. and the inability of another power in the region, such as Turkey, to counter the Russian presence or stand as an opponent to Putin’s ambitions,”

Join this unit today, and we will give you a Memorial card in advance for your enlisting!
No point in giving you extra pay though, as it’s a one shot effort.

They sound like the Peoples Liberation Front for Judea, from the Life of Brian! lol


The only thing Special about those extinguished Forces is their absolute radical, zealous , irrational , blind,
Wahhabi indoctrination. which is not Islamic at all.

HTS is finished. they are being squeezed a Globally. and snuffed out. Just like COVID – 19, Wahhabism is a CIa, Mi6, MOSSaD creation.


Well you can’t make real special forces soldiers in just a few months, so the term “special forces” is a bit of joke when applied to these knuckle-dragging thugs.


Their best recruits are on their way to Sweden right now :)
