Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Militants Raided Syrian Army Position In Southern Idlib

Donate

On July 31, militants of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) raided a position of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the southern Idlib countryside.

In the afternoon, the militants attacked the position, which is located in the vicinity of the town of al-Ruwaihah. Heavy clashes were reported around the town.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed that four SAA service members were killed and six others were injured. These claims are apparently false. Pro-government sources didn’t report any losses in Greater Idlib.

Following the raid, HTS launched a barrage of Grad rockets at SAA positions inside Ma`arat al-Nu`man city. No losses were reported.

The army responded to these provocations by shelling militants’ positions near al-Ruwaihah. At least one militant of HTS was killed and another was injured.

These attacks are a violation of the recent Russian-Turkish agreement on Greater Idlib. Ankara committed to neutralize the remaining terrorist groups in the region, including HTS, under the agreement. However, this is yet to happen.

The lack of any action by Turkey could force the SAA and its allies to go on the offensive. According to recent reports, the army is already preparing to launch a new operation in Greater Idlib.

    Why are these fuckers still alive?

    • Free man

      Because no one can kill them.

      • Lone Ranger

        I doubt that.
        With sat and drone intel and long range artillery and gunship helos they could be finished in a matter of days.

        • Free man

          The fact is that no one is doing it and probably it won’t happen in the future either.
          Apparently jihadism is a curse that will follow the Middle East for a long time to come.

      Because russia doesn t want to make erdogan angry. It s the only explanation I see.

      • Fog of War

        Because its all theater .

    • Jim Allen

      Because, in real life these are US proxies.
      Not that US cares about these groups, but destroying them, will agitate the US military
      The way it did when these clowns were bussed to Idlib in the first place. The City of London wants Syria, and it’s resources. US Government is a wholly owned subsidiary of The City of London, and serves the Zionist Khazars exclusively. Puppets US Government is.

      • Jim Allen

        If y’all are so tired of waiting send your own Armies to clean this up. Idiot.

        • Fog of War

          Why dont you clean up your collapsing country first. A country where your people are spat on, your confederate flag is practically illegal, the statues of your heroes are torn down, and your women and children are assaulted on a daily basis. Come back to me when you solve all those issues.

          • Jim Allen

            Yeah, so what ? You’ve no idea just how fucked up shit is in US. The flag you’re babbling on about is not the Confederate flag. It’s battle flag a Virginia Regiment went into battle with. I have one.
            Your country isn’t any different, and I’ve no issues to solve, or any desire to get back to you. You’re nothing more than a troll braying out of context to my comment, troll.

      Have you forgotten the real enemy are arrogant sociopaths, and lunatics ?

    Grad rockets and HTS, LOL, are they sure it’s HTS, grad rockets usually mean Turkish backed terrorists.
    I know HTS does have one or two launchers but the vast majority of the grad rocket launch vehicles belong to the moderate opposition NFL/SNA/SLF/FSA forces, as well as some of the other pro Turkish terrorists groups, but HTS is the last group I see using the grads, they can’t get replacement rockets from Turkey anymore so have to conserve their ammo.
    Turkey builds the Russian designed rocket launchers and then gives them to the terrorists, which makes them an illegal arms dealer under international law.
