Hayat Tahrir al-Sham-led Forces Seize More Villages In Northern Hama, Deploy Closer To Provinicial Capital

Donate

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and its moderate counterparts seized more villages from government forces in northern Hama.

The Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS)-led forces seized Arzeh, Kawkab and Eskandariah after breaking defenses of the National Defense Forces (NDF) north of Hama.

The militants also attacked an important government defense site of Qamhanah.

In the current situation, HTS and its allies have two options:

  1. To develop the advance further in the southern and southwestern directions in an attempt to outflank the Hama Airbase and Hama;
  2. To advance on the government held towns of  Kubbariyah, Maan and Qarah.

            here is democracy (not like in russia), tehrefor this is your right to make imbecial from yourself :DDD otherwise i amk not jew. but this is not important.

          • Boris Kazlov

            Democracy with only two right -wing parties? The empire is crumbling as we speak, divided against itself and in disarray, only blinds cannot see that, you are Jewish, your name betrays you, or maybe you are ashamed of belonging to such slime?

            i am not american

          • Boris Kazlov

            Russia is the strongest and greatest nation on the planet, not like dwarf Zionist parasitical entity, living on US largesse.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            we were happy when you left our country. you are far not the srtrongest and greatest. you lost everitying, also the bog soviet union :DDDD and now you bow before turks (blue stream) qatar (sold them 50% of big russian ggas firm) and america (for technoklogy, without it you are no t abke to produce oil in seberia. you are so stupud, thyt also in such strategic part are dependent on yankies. 70 years were not enough to find out own technology.

    • Boris Kazlov

      That talk shit has been tried more than once, you are the definition of insanity, expect a different result?

      • DJ Double D

        Why are we insulting? This is a discussion Forum. I do however agree that with so many foreign interests involved, talking can only succeed when all their interests are accounted for and this is not going to happen. So the option is to fight and box them in corner. But the fight has to be more effective and efficient than what we are witnessing. You can’t win war by liberating lands and then loosing them as in a Cat n’ Mice game. This is ridiculous.

  • Hitler

    rebels has reached close to Asilah but u are still showing old map, admin u should update this map

  • Valery Grigoryev

    Bad situation continues to develope. What about Tigers, Desert Hawks etc.?

    • Solomon Krupacek

      they are blocked. some montha ago i wrote clearly, that the saa will sit in aleppoo and can not be removed, because turks and fsa and nusra vill attack aleppo citi from 2 directions. desert hawksa ar essential in other part of syria. the marine is blocked in latakia, becouse of not finished fights and now is preparing a new offense of jihadists.

      so, the russian truces allowed to form 1 command for all jihadists. now is qualitatively another situation. they are better organized then the government forces. due to this mistake of russians and second one with allowing of turks to enter syria for blue streram gegins the final episode. called “the fall of syria”.

      • Gabriel Hollows

        Sorry Jew, but the moment reinforcement arrive to Hama (including Tiger forces elements) the militant offensive will be halted and reversed.

        The Yinon plan is falling apart and there is nothing you can do about it.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          jew is your secret father :PP

          tiger forces ar coming? really? and now who will continue in offense at aleppo and palmyra? the government steps in the same place. you idiot, you can believe in stupidities, saa propaganda, but the reality is that thea are losing. due to own stupidity.

  • Solomon Krupacek

    no problem. trustin judeau told, it was forseen and everything wll be OK. so, we can go make shoppings.

    • Free man

      Who imagined that the situation of the Syrian army in Hama was so bad.
      Pity for the untrained soldiers, NDF, being killed there in dozens.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        Look, also in this forum there are some people with military kills. all of them talked about this. what do you think, if regular soldiers are ablo to analyze the situation, why should not be able the generals of syrianr and russian army?

  • mark123456

    NDF USELESS

  • Gryphonne

    How are they able to advance with so much heavy equipment? Is Russian battlefield awareness so terrible? This is a legit question. They have SU-25s and Mi-35/28s made for this specific purpose. The weather isn’t a problem, so what is? As much as I dislike the Americans poking their nose into everything, at least their CAS seems way more effective.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      the RuAF is knockouted. Since missile attack on their airbase the do nothing. but accordig to colone trustin it ok, latakia is freed, there is no problem.

      this attack was planned. they blocked the ruaf and now can orginaze their carneval.

      • Jesus

        How was the RAF blocked? By a figment of your imagination?
        Let these jihadis commit themselves, as they did in SW Aleppo and then get in the meat grinder.
        Let these jihadis come to you, SAA has fire control from the east and west side of the pocket, an armored thrust can cut off the advance from the north, and SAA and Russia has full air control over the area, not o mention long range artilery, MLRS and short range ballistic missiles.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          destroyed the runway. 25 missiles do something. it is sure, from the attack the ruaf is lame.

          • PZIVJ1943

            How the hell do small grad rockets destroy a runway?
            Maybe a few potholes that can easily be patched!

          • Solomon Krupacek

            grad is terrible weapon. can destroy communication tower, antenens, i do not what all. reality is that from that time is weak activity of RuAF. otherwise, how is possible that the russian did not see the trucks with missiles?

          • PZIVJ1943

            Grad system can hit target area with much HE (arty on steroids).
            How can every vehicle be spotted in time to take it out?
            Jihadist and ISUS have adapted by moving in small unit sizes and hiding their vehicles in garages and buildings for sure.
            Air strikes in N Hama and Idlib are increasing by the day.
            SAA counter attack is all ready reported in N Hama.
            Good news!

  • greatndit

    just cut off the salient and boom… thousands jihadist trapped

    • DJ Double D

      That’s also my thought. Why can they in a matter of days occupy so many towns and villages and SAA couldn’t cut them off?

  • Ronald

    Putin , is too obsessed by events in Ukraine , because right now is the time to match American troop deployment in Syria . What the US forces did at the dam , they are not afraid to do anywhere in Syria that have no Russian presence . He who hesitates , is lost .

  • DJ Double D

    I know war is a tough Dude. Easy to watch from side but tough in the middle of it. However, I can’t marvel enough at how the Jihadists and other blood-sucking bastards manage to capture vast swath of land – towns and villages in a matter of days and SAA takes days and weeks to get them back with great losses. What the Hell is going on? Look! US keep doing their thing – their bombings more efficient, better military planning, better strategic battlefield calculation – all translates to BETTER RESULTS. How easy was the Tabqah Dam captured. Amazing! And now SAA can’t even advance on their own land. Terrible!

    • PZIVJ1943

      We need to consider that SAA pulled out their best forces from N Hama during the “ceasefire”
      Tigers did take a very large chunk of land away from Daesh in E Aleppo province.
      But now the game has changed. SAA has all ready counter attacked in Homs on very short notice. SAA can not man all fronts at the same time!
      PS: Is there confirmation that Tabqa Dam has been taken? I thought it was a misprint in news article.
