On January 12, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) launched a new fierce attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) southwest of the strategic Abu Duhur airbase in eastern Idlib and captured the villages of Rubay’ah and al-Khuraybah, according to the HTS-linked news agency Iba’a.

Iba’a also announced that a suicide bomber of HTS “Abu Huzaifah al-Homsi” conducted a VBIED attack on a key position of the SAA in Talib village north of Sinjar town. From its side, Syrian pro-government sources claimed that the SAA destroyed the VBIED before it reached its target.

Abu Huzaifah al-Homsi

Some pro-HTS activists went as far as claiming that HTS captured Sinjar town south of the Abu Duhur airbase. However, HTS didn’t confirmed any of these claims so far.

Meanwhile, the SAA maintained its steady advance in the southwestern Aleppo countryside and captured the villages of Umm Jurn, Banan Al Hoss, Mufalasat, Rasem Hulu, Jadiean, Jabal al-Mdwar, Tell al-Ayyubid, Kafr Akkar, Kafr Abbash and Muntar, according to the Syrian state TV.

While HTS attacks managed to slow down the SAA advance, it didn’t achieve any of its main goals like besieging the SAA south of the Abu Duhur airbase. However, radical militant groups will likely continue its attacks against the SAA in an attempt to prevent Abu al-Duhur from falling into the hands of government forces.

      Yes, SAA must continue on with its objectives abd not get distracted

  • Rob

    Now Salman, Erdogan and Netanyahu decide they want their terrorist elements alive or dead. If these terrorist elements stay in Idlib then definitely tigers will send them to hell.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Well the Clown Prince Salman is trying to quell the other Clown Princes with more legitimacy than MBS has. The plan was cooked up by the US state department to have all of them under arrest and replacement of those who would later turn on them by ratting out the collusion between the House Saud and the US in causing all the current and past issues from terrorists and economic manipulation.

        What MBS don’t know yet is that there’s none going to trouble themselves helping him out off his unimpressive reforms. Certainly not of his own countrymen.

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    Why do these Islamists Extremists always look like their cartoon caricatures and have the same propensity for making misleading claims.

    • PZIVJ

      OH NO, HTS has launched a “fierce” attack.
      Meanwhile SAA is starting to gain area in S Aleppo.
      I’ll go with the story the map is telling. :)

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Well AMN finally reported on HTS’s 2 failed fronts and the collapsed attack around Abu Duhur base , the SAA have well planned in advance and glad they are pushing from the east towards ISIS in the pocket.

        • PZIVJ

          Hopefully the other “not so moderate groups” are just throwing in some token support for HTS, and not all out support. SAA does not want to take on all groups unless it is necessary. But SAA does have the great advantage of air and arty for sure.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Sadly they say there are several groups FSA the Wahhabis is also involved. The SAA has been attacking the Hass region from the east and towards ISIS in the south, they can handle it so far as they continue to push them back.

  • Ono&Dsz

    Final countdown !!!

  • Tudor Miron
    • John Whitehot

      notice how SAA attacks are never “fierce” but they win them.

      • BMWA1

        :)

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Think they actually meant “fits and farce” attack

    • PZIVJ

      I guess the attack was fiercely repelled.
      Looks like the SAA where expecting an attack on this flank. Good news.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        no they took more the dozen villages :(

        • PZIVJ

          Are yo spreading lies like Dutch boy ?
          I have not heard from him lately.
          Perhaps he is to depressed to post :D

          • Solomon Krupacek

            everywhere wrote about yesterday new offensive. be patient, SF will inform you. in aleppo your beloved tigers took 10+ villages, but in idlib the rest of saa lost dozen+.

  • VGA

    They will bleed themselves dry like in the siege of Aleppo. They died in droves to break the siege for a few days and then their half of the city fell in a few weeks…

    Please keep attacking the Tiger Forces in the open!

  • Feudalism Victory

    The saa should be masters of the desert. Too much open space is being left to enemies to regroup. With drones planes and arty they should be able to operate with impunity.
