    The peace talks failed, aerial bombing continues, ground offensive of SAA still halted for now.

    • You can call me Al

      Has the SAA made any ground at all ?. For some reason, I get slightly confused from that map above.

      • jorge

        Yes, about + – 100 km2 in northwest Hama.

          strategically they failed on all fronts…….
          1. in Latakia they failed 5 attempts and over 5 dozen dead capturing the strategic mountain top…south western axis of kabani, Jabal -al akrad Region of North east Latakia….
          WITHOUT capturing this strategic mountain top town kabani, which is overlooking the strategic City of Jisr al-shughour in western Idlib ..makes virutally all offensive attempts on western Idlib useless…and deadly for any forces…..
          2. North west hama….. yes SAA captured the 2 towns Kafr Naboudeh and Qal’at Al-Madiq… but only after it was retaken by jihadi Forces and again re-retaken by SAA..under huge losses for both parties…..but here is the key…..These 2 towns cannot be Held for a Long period of time for a simple reason.The hilltops to the west..which are currently under jihadi Control, and with 1 turkish Observation post also in that exact area sheir magher…were 3 days ago, as mentioned at southfront and almasdar News, a large turkish army convoy arrived(27.05.)with heavy artillery and heavy vehicles….

          probably all just a coincidence…-sarcasm out

        Hey AI, they seem to be poking around with NDF types so far. The real hitters are starting to show up now. They are doing this one very differently than the other major operations. It is very strange the way they are almost creeping in sideways. We will see what happens. Take care.

    almasdar Breaking News

    The German government has signaled during months-long secret talks with the US that it would be prepared to take part in securing a safe zone in northern Syria, Spiegel reports. According to the outlet, Berlin has suggested that the mission of the German Armed Forces, Bundeswehr, in Jordan could be extended for this purpose.
    The mandate for a German deployment called “Camp Sonic” to remain at a Jordanian Air Force base in order to counter Daesh expires in October. It includes specially equipped “Tornado” jets that are assisting the US-led anti-Daesh coalition with reconnaissance and aerial refueling over Syria. However, as the German outlet points out, it is still unclear what assistance the German Air Force can provide for the safe zone.

    Spiegel reports that the US has repeatedly unofficially requested that Germany remain involved in Syria since the Munich Security Conference in mid-February. During secret talks of the anti-Daesh coalition’s key members, US acting Secretary of Defence Patrick Shanahan reportedly briefed the allies on the US plans for a buffer zone between northern Syria and Turkey in order to protect the Kurds fighting on the American side from both Ankara and Damascus.
    The Chancellor’s Office, Foreign Ministry, and Defence Ministry have reportedly agreed that the US should not be alienated over the Syria issue. But as the German government cannot deploy ground troops, Spiegel reports, Berlin has come up with an idea to provide airspace security. The secret negotiations reportedly continued at the highest levels after the conference and involved Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen and Germany’s top diplomat Heiko Maas.
    Although a consensus might have been reached in the international talks, the notion could face hurdles in Germany. It was earlier agreed within the coalition government of the Christian Democratic Union, the Christian Social Union, and the Social Democrats that the Jordan mission would end in 2019. While the CDU indicated that it could support an extension, the SPD has vehemently rejected the idea

    Go SAA and Co..

    The 4th publicly getting involved is pretty big news, more so for me than the Tigers. They don’t play and they don’t lose. Normally they show up, when somebody is going to get an absolute asskicking. Like the other real serious SAA units that nobody wants to face, and everybody knows who they are, until now they have been basically absent from the battlefield. Some of the posters on the thread may think what is going on is nothing but, now that the Tiger Force, the 4th, Hez and others have started to just poke around the edge a bit, the head choppers are probably going through underwear like crazy, knowing that these guys have now entered the situation. Wait till the Republican Guard starts showing up in force, the international screaming will be noticeable. Idlib Inc., is getting the bad feeling that It is the end for them.

    I view what has gone on now is initial positioning and probing. Plus there has been a lot of prep work by the airstrikes. I have watched the SAA since 2014 and they don’t let anybody know exactly how the next blow is coming. They were stomping on everything before they took a break. So my opinion is that it would be very foolish to judge anything they have done so far as being some form of weakness. This is war and if you make yourself too obvious, you are dead. My take on it fellas. I wish well to all.
