Map Update: Government Forces Progress Against Militants In Syrian Province Of Idlib

Donate

The Syrian Arab Army and the National Defense Forces have liberated the villages of Rashadiya, Rasm al-Bidh, Rasm Sayyal, Rasm Kibar, Zilaqiat, Zilen and Mashrifa from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and its allies in southern Idlib, northern Hama and southern Aleppo.

The most intense clashes took place in Zilaqiat and Zilen where Salah Eddine Al-Checheni, a high-ranked member of al-Qaeda-affiliated Jaish al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar, was killed. Jaysh al-Izza captured six SAA fighters and an artillery piece before the retreat.

    I celebrate every inch of Idlib liberated. So there is a lot of party ahead! Whooohoo!!

    • §âm

      I don’t think whole idlib will be liberated i think they’ll focus on secruing the highway and western aleppo first

  • Serious

    Well done sunnis. Look what you did to Syria.
    Worst part is that they absolutely don’t care about.

    • §âm

      Majority of SAA are sunnis. But yeah the rebellion was led by sunnis. If only bashar listened to rightful demands of his people instead of opressing and murdering them….

      • Serious

        Always the same shit.

        1 – 100% of the rebels are sunnis.
        2 – What rebellion ? They are trained terrorists like we see it during 5 years.
        3 – What oppression or murdering ??? The same as Gadafi did ??? XD
        Sunnis want nothing at all. They are their own problems. In every country, it’s the same with them. They are always oppressed everywhere. When you give them democracy, they start killing each others.

        • §âm

          Rebels are bad, but bashar is a murderer and you can’t deny it.
          The revolution started out peacefully and it stayed so for a while, Bashar should have taken the easy way and negotiated with the opposition instead of the atrocities he did to the protesters.
          BASHAR IS THE #1 RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SYRIA, followed by global powers and the Sunni/shia hostilities promoted by gulf states and saudi Arabian propoganda

          • Serious

            Bullshit. There was no revolution even less “peacefull” revolution. Just a bunch of terrorists who started attacking governement institutions to start the war.

            Where is the “opposition” and what they want ? You obviously see that there is no opposition and that they want NOTHING. Even SDF say they wannt “democracy” but expell their oponents.

          • §âm

            You’re very misinformed, Google some info how protests around syria started, why it started, and what happened to protesters who ended up in Bashars jail
            The people wanted to end dictatorship and corruption but the extremists were the ones who got the weapons and money from uncle Sam and so qaeda and it’s sisters were born while the real opposition who actually cared about the country became so irrelevant nowadays.

          • Serious

            That’s so bullshit. So, the so-called opposition is crying about dictatorship and can’t handle their terrorist buddis ??? XD. If there is no democacrcy in Syria it’s for a good reason. If those so-called “opposition” can’t handle sunnis terrorists, how can it be a democaracy in Syria ???

            There was absolutely no revolution whatsoever. The only revolution was the jihadist revolution held by USA to topple Assad.

          • §âm

            You sound like Assad in the beginning of the revolution.
            He said the same.

          • Serious

            There was no revolution.

          • §âm

            You just blew my mind ?, good argument skills

          • Serious

            Revolutions are in Yemen and Palestine. Why Syrians people are running into Assad areas ???

          • dutchnational

            Funny, they do not. Five to six million abroad, one million to Idlib and Azaz, 1.5 million to SDF held areas.

            Only Assad areas having many refugees are coastal area and Damascus.

          • Serious

            Bad data.

          • That guy

            You do realize Assad was democratic elected whole process supervised by 20 nation’s observers , right ?

          • §âm

            In real democracies people are intitled to express their political views without fear of prosecution, jail, and torture.

            I don’t know if you consider amnesty international a reliable source or controlled by the magical mind-reading boogey man, but take a look at what babyface Assad does to his people

          • dutchnational

            Who can object to anyone who is responsable for so many deaths when he does all that in name of personal power, ambition and money?

          • leon mc pilibin

          • §âm

            2nd person to accuse me of being an agent from Israel… i don’t deserve this lol just said my OPINION

          • peter

            All arabic people need dictators,if no and coming juesej democracy,moslims will do
            what they do in EU,now.They need hard hand!

          • §âm

            They’re used to being opressed, that’s how their fathers and grandfathers lived, opressed and afraid to think

          • peter

            Style and maners of life in arabic country are tradicional with all – and + .Juesej democracy is only cover for mutiny opposite unwanted leaders and supremacy about region,who dont like USA.When I am visit Tripoli airport,on the wall was sign Dead of america!

          • That guy

            No again you are incorrect. A democracy only entitles people to elect those who will represent them. The charters and constitutions of nation’s are what protect individual rights and freedoms.

          • peter

            Did you visit Syria?I am was there with our tractors T-72.Syria was most beautifull
            arabic country.Was destroy countries,who dont do bussines with USA..Irak,Syria,Libya.This is true!

          • northerntruthseeker .

            Obviously this one is a Hasbara/JIDF bullshit commentator…. Assad is NOT the murderer, when the reality is the “rebels” are murdering civilians and have been aided/funded/and armed by the psychotic Jewish pricks in Israel and of course the US itself.

          • §âm

            Like it or not there is no “good” side fighting on the ground, syria is ruined and it’s economy is dead
            i honstly think the regime is “good’er” than the extremists but still….i know what Alasad done to his people …he and his people should go…syrians need someone who cares about their folk and lead them into the post war era and revive it. With Assad nothing will change post-war.

          • northerntruthseeker .

            Again, hasbara agent.. you are in here deceiving… The economy is not “dead” and has been revived with Assad running the show.. And these “extremists” have long been proven to be YOUR Jewish agents and agent provocateurs… These Israeli-US agents have been murdering the people, and not Assad…

            Go back to your controllers..You have been exposed…

          • §âm

            Haha wtf you talking about?? How dare you defend Assad?!
            Assad and his people are corrupt to the core. No economic revival will take place under his rule.
            I share your anti-US and Israel sentiment but I’m also not blind to the bigger picture, and i don’t accuse someone of being an illuminate agent or whatever if he say somthing that doesn’t fit in my made up “truth” bubble
            Southfront is a good news source but i don’t recommend getting your info from this one source only, u have expand and research as well if you want to get what i am talking about.
            Because just like your “boggeyman” controls western media there are other powers influenceing “your” sources as well.
            Open your mind, think for yourself,dont be fed with info like sheep.

          • dutchnational

            Syria’s economy is not dead?

            You are right. In many aspects the Northern Syrian economy is reviving in overdrive. Industry in Afrin is florishing. Industry is Raqqah rapidly being restarted. And more.

          • peter

            who says this?CNN rubbish?

          • §âm

            Dude where have you been for the last 7 years, it’s common sense now. Syria is and was lead by a corrupt murderous dictator. For 18 years and Assads father before him ( who was even more stronger and oppressive)

          • peter

            Iam repeat again,Syria was most beautifull arabic country!Everywhere,where is good,is for juesej bad!Hafez Assad do order with moslim brothers,they run to Egypt,where do problems up to day.What you know about corrupt in Syria?Corrupt is everywhere,in juesej too!Who says about murder?Human watch right?Half of them are CIA agents!Attacks with chemical weapons was fabricated by CIA!Russian are in Syria 65 years and stay there far.About this go!

          • §âm

            Earlier you admitted that bashar is a dictator, now you say he’s not a murderer.
            100 000s people dead and alot more missing or as political prisoners are a cia lie apparently, bravo.
            Anyway it would have been more fruitfull to argue with a wall than the gentilemen on this comment section and i learned my lesson not to question what i am seeing here and just take info from NON-cia-niozionist-mindcontrol-fakenews-grabage-israeli sources because they’re 100% truthfull and we’rent related to propoganda of any sort (sarcasm for dummies)

          • peter

            Arabic countries are very cruel,this is part of their life,but juesej havent right do some order with this!Why must dead 1 milions civilian victim in Irak,thousands
            in Libya and Syria,by USA hand?Bashar is dictator,but he dont used chemical
            weapons opposite his oven people.This is fake news from cia,should be Syrian people remove bashar.Why isnt problem for juesej ,Saudi arabian,where cutting limbs,hanging and stoning women to?SA is friendly country,make bussines with juesej,because common people dont interesting USA !

          • Ronald

            “The atrocities he did to the protesters” , was really a set up by Al Qaeda , funded by the CIA , they shot protesters , not the SAA . You need to catch up on the news . Saudi Arabian Wahabbi trainned jihadists , ISIS and Al Qaeda , are financed by them and the US . They are responsible for what is happening in Syria .

  • You can call me Al

    Dear SF, the territory in the map looks so large, any chance of that area in context as it is rather small in reality.

    Assad declared himself to be a traitor :

    Assad told reporters today that any Syrian who operates under the command of a foreign country, is a traitor

    As Assad is under command of both Iran and Russia, that makes him a self declared traitor.

    • Jim Martin

      His Traitor comments were pretty much over the top

      All this says is that as per 2011 the Assad regime will kill, overrun, or maim anyone who gets in their way making them unfit for Syria’s future The Russians would do well to head for the door and let the Assad regime areas be absorbed into one undivided Syrian made up of Federal States or provinces which is what the Russians essentially supported however Assad does not; as he tries to murder and starve his way to victory
