Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham Launches Attack Against ISIS Pocket In Southeastern Idlib

On February 11, fighters of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and several Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups launched a new attack against the ISIS pocket in the southeastern Idlib countryside, according to Syrian opposition sources.

The HTS-linked news agency Iba’a reported that HTS fighters killed three fighters of ISIS and capture several buildings inside the village of Umm al-khalayel in the southeastern Idlib countryside. Two members of ISIS were reportedly captured by HTS during the clashes in the village.

Moreover, HTS and its allies shelled the positions and supply lines of ISIS inside and around Umm al-Khalayel with mortars and rockets, according to Iba’a.

From its side, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq didn’t release any report about the ongoing battles in the southeastern Idlib countryside. This means that ISIS fighters there might have lost connection with their leadership in other areas in Syria and Iraq.

HTS claims that it will eliminate the ISIS pocket in the southeastern Idlib countryside within few days. However, several Syrian pro-government sources doubt this claim, as HTS has failed to clear the northeastern Hama pocket from ISIS before.

    AQ rats attack ISIS rats; sweet.

    Hey Yanks, you watching ?, because your getting higher up the list of “the rats to be eliminated list”; I would get those oversized, fluid gender, rainbow adult nappies on if I were you.

      Not many people have enjoyed going to war against the americans. Careful what you wish for.

        What crap are you talking about the US can’t beat anyone and almost lost at Grenada of which no one knew what was going on. Same situation was in the Falklands turned out the Brits weren’t much help there really and Canada took the Falklands themselves.The US on their own are not much and will be alone on this one as they don’t have much support anymore keeps dwindling.

          No offence Terra, but you have the Falkland’s totally wrong, so much so, it is an insult and whether it bothers you are not, you have really pissed me off.

          The Brits fought Argentina ALONE…. NOT THE FUCKING YANKS who betrayed us, by not even letting us to refuel in he US or assist diplomatically AT ALL- as for Canada being involved, that is pure and utter BS.

          What the hell are you up to ?, this is the first non-logical comment you have made…….are you stoned or something ?.

            Meant the Common wealth Paras , but like I said it’s a BS Colonialism not in favor of it. Best to return it to Argentina, US has uselessly built colonies and treat the people like shit. Brits had all the support from the commonwealth and financial from the EU, so really not alone remember the pact requires all to come to ones aid when called. The US had officers like other countries in the ranks, the air traffic controller in Port Stanley was Canadian, the US alo had ships ready for replacement.

            The move by the UK was very unpopular, there were so many foreign troops hard to count.

            The ability to inter change ones national military service is why Brit forces like other NATO countries can join another countries military.

            Be Thankful both UK and Argentina are both weak in the military they should negotiate under the UN.

            Oh Lordy; no further comment from me.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Those are just the facts manpower smaller than some other Common wealth nations. UK is in the dark years seem all nations go through them.

        • Feudalism Victory

          The vietnamese syrians koreans etc all fought off the americans with some success but at the cost of mountains of bodies. They no doubt wouldve rather avoided conflict if possible. Has nothing to do with winning.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            It’s not about winning but survival, those who commit genocides should be faced with war crime death penalties.

          • Feudalism Victory

            History is written by winners

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The only problem is the US hasn’t been the winner in most events and the written history there is quite enlightening. The world gets to the spectacle the US is becoming today, should be more interesting in this chapter.

        Silly sod, when exactly have you won a war ?.
