Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) announced on May 22 that a new batch of its snipers has completed training. The terrorist group claimed the new snipers are specialized in night operations and trained to use rifles equipped with thermal sights.

Iba’a, the HTS news agency, released photos of the new recruits armed with AKM-47 and AK-74-type assault rifles as well as Romanian PSL sniper rifles. Only few of the rifles were equipped with Pulsar Apex XD75 and Fortuna One 3XL/6XL thermal sights.

HTS is taking advantage of the current ceasefire in Greater Idlib, brokered by Russia and Turkey on March 5, to rebuild its military capabilities.

Earlier this week, the terrorist group said that a large batch of new recruits has jointed its special forces, known as the “Red Bands.” Other units completed a “military enhancement” training course.

The HTS military buildup could jeopardize the March 5 agreement. If the agreement collapses, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies will likely resume military operations in Greater Idlib.

Training as that is very importing and ven low grade is.

The danish teachers for the Bagdad Goverment see, that soldiers wasting a lot of bullets even nearbye hardæy can hit a cow.

A lot of bullets also are wasted too much up in the air. If Allah was there, he would have been shot down many times:(

I do wonder what specilal forces are . As I see it the special forces are normally trained ones and the rest only has practice and no training.


Wonderful Russia-Turkey cease fire agreement for terrorists and Turkey (NATO member), and this is just the beginning.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

OMG are they wearing standard issue uniforms, that’s a first, they nearly look like professional soldiers now, but they definitely won’t act like them. I wonder what this new unit will be targeting, friends or foes, they’re fast running out of friends lately so they have lots of foes to choose from, the Turks, the NFL, the FSA, the SNA, and the SLF, lol, so it may not be the SAA getting the short end of the stick.

Assad must stay

im not scared, they werent trained by the houthis, so how good can they be? lol


This was only possible thanks to the great “ceasefire”. The beginning of the next SAA operation will be bloody again.


My only question is, WTF is the Russian doing, how on earth is this alowed to be, and makes me go hummmm….. this, is again an escalation totally unnessesery and due to the moronic handling of the Russian Gov, and this, when I suspect its because of some backroom deals done with the ZATO forces aka Turds and Putin, alowing this to happen, instead of flatbombing their area and pinpoint the heads, Putin does absolutelly nothing, pity for the Syrians that Russia is throwing them under the buss, this is going down the drain as expected when Putin the spineless assh….. managed to go for an truce when Syria had the upper hand, and why am I not the slightest surpirced, RuF is backstabbing again as before the Syrian people, Putin is by this just showing us all what an corrupt mofo He really is, and this was predicted months ago, but hey, RuF can have an live testing range while Syrians bleeds, RuF is nothing but an bunch of scumbags, period.

Never again must the rotten RuF drool something about helping friends when Putin shows the oposit, just an bloody traitore and where the hell is this so called RuFs “briliant” goat f… from Siberia, huh, what an joke, just another spineless rotten creep.
