HTS, Al-Qaeda & Turkish-Backed Groups Launch Large-Scale Attack On SAA In Southern Idlib

Support SouthFront

The so-called “al-Fatah al-Mubin” operations room announced on October 30 that it had launched a large-scale military operation against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southern Idlib.

The operations room was established earlier this year by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) and several foreign Jihadi groups, including the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) and Ajnad al-Kavkaz (AK).

According to pro-government sources, the attack is targeting the towns of Ejaz and Sarjah in the southeastern Idlib countryside.

So far, the militants have not captured any position from the SAA. However, heavy clashes are taking place in the region with Russian and Syrian warplanes targeting militants there.

A day earlier, the SAA repelled an attack by HTS on its positions around Ejaz, after destroying two battle tanks and several vehicles of the terrorist group. The attack was apparently the first phase of the militants’ new operation.

Unfortunately, AMN News is reporting that the Santanic alliance of HTS and their headchopping deamons managed to capture the town of ‘Aajaz, along with Istablat, Rasm Al-Ward, and Sourouj. Hopefully SAA and their allies managed to withdraw without fatalities. Time to unleash Air Force with thermobaric bombs to send them straight to Hell


Not verified. There are conflicting reports. Wonder if wife ranging attacks in NW Syria is linked to this site being down. Same dource

Yeah site was down 13hrs ago…


Great russian-turkish “ceasefire” to help the terrorists regrouping, uniting and building fortifications.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

This has become very confusing, independent and opposition reports still have all 4 towns under rebel/terrorist control, but the Syrians say they repelled the attacks and still have control.

How do the rebels manage to keep doing this over and over again, surely just simple surveillance equipment would be good enough to give the SAA ample warning of an imminent attack, how the hell do those terrorists manage to hide from all the drones and satellites as they mobilize.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
