Militant Counter-Attacks In Northwestern Hama Turned Into Failure. Syrian Army Kept Liberated Positions (Maps)

By the evening of May 7, all counter-attacks launched by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies in northwestern Hama had been repelled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies. Thus, pro-government troops kept all the positions, which they had liberated during a swift attack on May 6.

Despite this, the SAA has not been able to develop its initial success and to push further into the militant-held area. An attempt to advance in the direction of Kafr Nabuda has been repelled by militants.

If no major offensive actions are undertaken by the SAA and its allies in the nearest future, the frontline in this area would stabelize once again and the situation would return to a reltative calm with constant artillery duels.

    If this offensive is just a little offensive for stabilization proposes, it represents just a time delay for terrorists to attack again and again and again. This would be too bad news since Idlib and Hama must be free of all kind of terrorists and Turkish.

  • vaderfater

    Nice! But only a little. Because of only few km2-s liberated.

      I’m getting a flashback from Blackadder goes Fourth. Where General Melchett gets shown a diorama of the area the British army had taken that day. It’s the size of a table and he asks which scale. Upon which Captain Darling says its 1:1.

      SAA may be just testing out the waters.
      Would not be surprised if they went for Tel Hawash a bit to the north on upper map. Stay in the more open farmland, take the high points and wait for the Jihadist response. And then another small front advance by SAA may appear somewhere else. :)

      • vaderfater

        Let be so! :)

      • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

        no, reality is the FSA rebels and its allies in Idlib are too strong and battle hardened, weak pathetic SAA will need years to defeat them. They’re lucky to be able to advance against 3 villages like they just did… because SDF took more land in 1 hour during Manbij/Raqqa offensives than the SAA did in 2 days so far

        • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

          Two different situations.

          And standard military tactics against an entrenched and fortifired enemy, dictates that if the attack aint overwhelming, massive and supported by flanking manouvres, it aint the real thing.

          Testing out weak spots and getting some ground for a better starting point is most likely whats going on.

        • PZIVJ

          Your reply is a lot of BS. Looks like the SAA push has a lot of strength to flank Jihadist trash. Tiger spam :)

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    awesome work SAA, im sure its nothing that constant airstrikes cant solve, to dislodge the shithadists :)))

    • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

      lol the SDF made more progress in their Raqqa Offensive in 1 hour than the SAA did in 2 days so far in their “Idlib Offensive”

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        Yea with US destroying everything including homes, civilian buildings, its a lot easier to blow up everything when your not even Syrian, you dumb shit

  • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

    US Navy Abraham Lincoln Supercarrier Strike Group has passed the Suez Canal en route to the Arabian Gulf. Israeli Airforce also preparing massive airstrikes against IRGC/shia militia targets using a large squadron of F-35’s, F-16s, F-15s, and even cruise missiles
    -USS Lincoln carrier Equipped with 70 F-18 Superhornets and 20 F-35A’s :)
    -multiple destroyers with 200+ tomahawk missiles
    -4 B-52 nuclear bombers just arrived in Qatar
    -extra B-1 Lancers bombers and F-15E fighters recently flown to USAF Qatar/Saudi bases
    -extra AH-64 Apache and AC-130 Gunships flown to US airbases in Iraq

    In the coming days, hezbollah/assad regime/irgc will be in a big world of hurt
    USAF and IDF will rain h3!! upon them with overwhelming air and naval power

    • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

      I dont think that IDF or NATO/US will bother to enter Syria, their allies there (HTS and ISIS) have been battered to hard and Russia is in it also.
      The IDF/US/NATO do not have any pretext to enter Syria.

      The typical US threats are clearly based against Iran.

      Do you have any crediable sources for your claims, or is it just another bitch and moan comment from you, without any substance and value?

      As i said in a previous post from you, Put up or Shut Up

      PS.
      Calling B-52´s “nuclear bombers” is kinda stupid, every plane in the bomber class can carry nuclear weapons, but using nuclear weapons is pointless as General Schwarzkopf said once: “Using nuclear weapons creates to much of a mess that you cant control”

      And dont you think that the buildup is more to protect the Saudi´s, they apparrently cant fight and dont know squad about using military hardware or proper tactics.

      The US regime is still not winning in Afghanistan after 18 years so shut it little American boy.

    I hope this pause is just temporary, I don’t think I could handle it emotionally if they were to stop altogether.
    HTS HTS HTS, that’s all we hear lately, but who’s attacking the SAA with the heavy rocket launchers, who’s defending quite a lot of the front lines that HTS is supposedly in charge of [because they supposedly kicked the others out], it’s the FSA and the NFL, the 2 groups Erdogan’s officially backing.
    WTF is going on, how can you kick the HTS rebels out when they’re so intermingled with the guys Erdogan’s backing, they’re classed as non combatants according to last years Astana agreement, only HTS and few other groups were left as valid targets. But now they’re all mixed back in together, and all fighting against the SAA, and since you can’t help hitting one group without hitting the other, I think the SAA and the Russians should just blow the whole lot up, HTS, the FSA, and the NFL, and maybe even a few Turkish soldiers if they want to try and get in the way.
    Strike while the iron’s hot, Hader should be the gateway east, and Armanaz should be the objective, it’s time to divide and conquer Roman style, not time to sit down and negotiate Roman style, unless there’s some poison involved that is, and a lot of it. mmm too sad.
