In Syria’s Greater Idlib, rumors regarding a large-scale ground operation continue.

While there is still no development, the activities of the so-called “moderate opposition” still need to be contained.

The Russia’s Aerospace Forces (VKS) do the brunt of the heavy-lifting by carrying out almost daily air strikes.

On September 15th alone, the VKS dished out 12 strikes on the northwestern region.

The Russian air strikes hit positions located near the towns of Zurzur, al-Hammammah and Darkush in the western countryside of Idlib. The three towns are situated a few kilometers away from the border with Turkey.

A day earlier, sources close to Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) claimed that several Russian service members were killed in an attack in southern Greater Idlib. These claims remain unverified.

Alongside all of the ceasefire violations by HTS and the other al-Qaeda-affiliated factions in the region, Israel also carries out regular strikes on alleged Iranian or pro-Iranian groups in Syria.

Early on September 15, a number of loud explosions were reported at a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) base to the west of the Syrian capital Damascus.

The base is located between the towns of Khan Alsheh and Zakyah, approximately 50 km away from Israel. The explosions were reported by several Syrian sources a few hours after a series of mysterious air strikes that targeted the Syrian-Iraqi border line.

Still, the situation in Syria is under relative control, as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could afford to travel to Moscow for the first time in 5 years and meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Many praises were exchanged, and it was a standard meeting repeating many of the previous statements.

It was concluded that 90% of the territories were under Damascus control and the terrorists and opposition had been punished quite a bit, but the fight against them would continue until full consolidation is reached.

The main issue that the Syrian government faces is the presence in some parts of the country of foreign armed forces without any mandate from the United Nations or Damascus’ permission.

The premiere foreign presence is that of Turkey (and the United States), which provides security for militants in pockets of resistance. In these areas the terrorists and opposition control part of the territory, in which they continue to terrorize peaceful civilians.

According to the both leaders, the fight will continue and the Syrian and Russian forces will further punish terrorism and liberate new territories until all of the Arab Republic is under Damascus control and normality can fully return.

Good. No compromise.

Next time Israel do it again, we will give Syria the S-300 if Israel do it again.


Syria will get hit until they remove any presence of Hezbollah and Iranian forces from our border, we are not obliged to any ceasefire agreement only to our own interests (and that includes the nuclear deal too). Assad can still sit at his throne if he cooperates with us, but one mistake of dead Israelis from his territory and not even Russia will save him for our wrath. Regarding Russia, someone need to tell those Kremlin guys that Bibi is no longer in power and we don’t do what they want. Israel comes first, they should not forget it.
