Donate

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured the town of Kafr Nabudah in northern Hama from terrorist groups in a swift advance on May 8.

According to pro-government sources, the SAA stormed the strategic town in the early hours of the morning under the cover of Syrian and Russian warplanes. After few hours of heavy clashes, terrorists were forced out of the town and the army was able to secure its new gains.

Kafr Nabudah is one of the biggest towns in the northern Hama countryside. The town was a stronghold for several terrorist groups, including Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). The Turkish-backed coalition, National Front for Liberation (NFL), also had positions in the town’s outskirt.

After losing the town, HTS targeted SAA troops inside it with a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED). The terrorist group’s news network, Iba’a, claimed that several Syrian soldiers were killed and injured. However, pro-government sources said that the VBIED was destroyed before reaching its target.

The SAA launched its ground operation in the northern Hama countryside on May 6. Back then, the army secured the villages of al-Bana, al-Janabira and Tell Ottman south of Kafr Nabudah.

Terrorist groups may attempt to recapture Kafr Nabudah in the upcoming few hours. This could further escalate the situation in the northern Hama countryside.

      Considering how silent Turkey is now suggests that a deal between Russia and Turkey has been struck.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        why you say this ? turkey is silent how exactly because her isis groups are attacking on daily bases the Khmeimim base with the blessing of turkey. 3 attacks in the last 5 days.

        • jorge

          Well, always one foot on one side, one foot on the other, but the last Astana meeting declaration was pointing to this, an SAA offensive.

        • Mauricio

          Turkey with Russia bless is feeding their ‘radicals’ for their own demise, the door soon will be knocked. The time is short and the consequence is a choice that will make many to come to Syria. Until there any defense is a real drill between friends having a common interest in preventing the Kurdistan.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            you not reading what is happening correctly because you are focusing in one pixel of the picture(syria) and what you think or wish it, to be the end result. The next few months as things are going and I am not speaking of syria, in syria what was to happen it already has happen and is finished. Now what is happening are the final touches , that will make the division of syria in 3 parts permanent.

          • Mauricio

            I cannot see any future for Kurdistan. That is too costly for America on long term to be there. It will be bring the end of all Kurds assumptions even in Iraq.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            on the contrary, it be too costly for russia and turkey, if kourdistan is established as well iraq and iran in the4 long run and extremely profitable for americans and allies meaning Uk/nato.

            The reason is simple russians failed to stop anything from happening in syria actually what is happening is exactly what nato wanted with the exception of Assad is alive and has the “control“ of the area facing Mediterranean. Next election Assad may not be the president of syria.

            The real game has not began yet. So dont confuse the preliminaries to a war with the WAR itself. It be like confusing foreplay with the main dish.

            I hate it but this is most likely true.

      • klove and light

        • Astrid Watanabe

          They are in a war zone and not everything can be under control.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            you need to understand that the turkish proxies, are lead and controlled either by the grey wolves, ertogans paramilitary army, or the special forces of turkey.

  • Barba_Papa

    A good start of the day. I see that livejihad map is full of claims of SAA soldiers getting killed. They must be getting desperate.

    Terrorist groups may attempt to recapture Kafr Nabudah in the upcoming few hours. This could further escalate the situation in the northern Hama countryside.

    Let them come. The more that get killed in the counter attacks, the less that will be left over to resist later.

        I knew they were Ukies , but not that they were based in the US.
        Thankyou.

  • ColinNZ

    Good start to a long piecemeal offensive …. the long game always wins.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Yes, there is a problem with some people who expect the reality to mimic the fantasy of a ‘shootem up’ videogame.

      Its not that they are necessarily bad people, but they are indoctrinated by decades of Hollywood war films.

  • Ulsterman

    Fuck the Pope and the IRA.

  • XtremeForce

    According to this map Turkish troops are protecting Al Qaeda terrorist?? Am I right or not.

  • J Roderet

    Wonderful news, great job Syrian army! The clock is ticking down on the Neocons’ al-Queda minions in Idlib. Expect the Western mass media to start squealing in panic again soon.

    • Astrid Watanabe

      Hawarnews reports Security Council is having an emergency session at the request of Belgium, Germany, and Kuwait, discussing the “escalation in Idlib” and “the humanitarian situation”
      They must be worried about something!
