New Large-Scale Turkish-led Attack Targets Syrian Army In Southern Idlib (Videos, Map)

Support SouthFront

On February 20 noon, the remaining militants in Greater Idlib launched a large-scale attack on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions in the region’s southern part with direct support from the Turkish military.

The attack, which is targeting the town of al-Nayrab near Saraqib city, is being carried out by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the National Front for Liberation (NFL).

The Turkish Armed Forces are reportedly providing the militants with fire support, using rocket launchers, howitzers and even battle tanks.

Syrian opposition activists released videos showing Turkish commandos units and battle tanks deploying around al-Nayrab a few hours ahead of the attack. It remains unclear if these troops are directly taking part in the offensive.

Opposition sources are claiming that most of al-Nayrab was captured by Turkish-backed militants. Meanwhile, pro-government sources are saying that the attack was repelled.

Warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) are providing the SAA with close air support. Unverified reports claim that Turkish personnel were killed and that the Turkish Armed Forces lost some equipment.

The attack on al-Nayrab is the biggest Turkish-backed operation against the SAA in Greater Idlib, to this day. Over the last two weeks, several smaller attacks were carried out. All attacks ended with Turkish-backed militants sustaining heavy losses.

Zionism = EVIL

Since this is Syrian territory, Russia should be bombing the invading Turkeys and their terrorists. The goat fucker Erdogan is on a rampage and thinks that Russia will blink and he can annex even more parts of Syria. It is surprising that Egypt being the largest so-called Arab state with 100 million people is totally silent, even as Erdogan invades Libya for oil and gas. The Turkeys are trying to act as roosters.

The problem with Putin and Russia in general is that they want to play by the book…They want everything using “International Law” and agreements signed on paper when their opponents don’t even care about that. They have studied the Russian weakness for quite a while now…Putin calls USA and the West “OUR PARTNERS” .No they are not your partners. Turkey blatantly shot down a Russian plane and went smiling to Moscow and got the S-400s,idlib and parts of the North of Syria as a deal…What did Russia get? EGG ON FACE! In the North the USA is spitting on their face blocking their military vehicles and driving them of the road and telling them “You are not our partners…You are nothing” WHEN ARE THE RUSSIANS GOING TO GROW A PAIR AND REALIZE THEY NEED TO BE IN CHARGE!? Not played on…I am done with them! I was feeling really proud of Syria”s achievements but now i see they are fc/kd if they have Russia as a “Partner”

Tim Williams

SAA & Russian forces were ready for the assault … invaders were devastated with huge losses in the last 90 minutes

Josiah Isaboke

Really? Here we go. Already started while Russians are in the “Board Room” in Moscow waiting for “Talks”. https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/turkish-forces-launch-offensive-against-syrian-army-in-eastern-idlib/

Thanks for your Info ,Tim.

“Turkey requests US Patriot missile system to stop Russia in Idlib: report”

Bru

So stupid from Erdogan, who should know that the patriots are crap, and what does he expect after ordering the S-400. Has he IQ as low as an ape?

Jets

That’s an insult to apes :-)))

AleK

Russians killed far more Turks in Syria then vice versa, they just don’t brag so much. Turks shot down one plane, Russians destroyed entire turkish convoys…
Peace negotiations? Well, you negotiate peace with your enemies not with your friends…

Putin is an Israeli puppet

If he would have intervened in the war aside israel not Siria….!

“I was feeling really proud of Syria”s achievements but now i see they are fc/kd if they have Russia as a “Partner””

So you say Syria is fucked with Russia as a ‘partner’. Who do you propose as a better partner? Go back to 2015 and tell me that Syria was better off without Russian intervention. It’s fine to complain but instead of just whining give us your solution.

Josiah Isaboke

You don’t understand. I support Syria 100% and what it has achieved so far.i am just disappointed with the concessions Russia tries to make to please Turkey. Turkey has always laid claim to the Northern and Western parts of Syria since it’s formation and anyone who can’t see what the Turks really want is either too blind or too stupid. This was the only opportunity Syrians had to regain the whole of their country back. When they had the manpower and the morale needed which was a boost. They lost momentum and i’m afraid they might just accept Idlib is Turkish land…Sorry!

Rafik Chauhan

NOT LONG Turkey asked US to deploy patriot misslile . it means Erdogon slave running to thier master back. And Russia will become more aggeressive. bcuz turkey is in Syria land and neither US nor nato will help if SAA or Russia killed thousand of turks soldier.

Wayne Nicholson

“i am just disappointed with the concessions Russia tries to make to please Turkey.”

What concessions? Fighting a war costs a lot of money and lives. Russia has used diplomacy to cut deals with Turkey and various rebel groups that saved Syria lives and money …. neither of which Syria had to spare. It’s easy to criticize in hindsight but consider that when Russia stepped in in 2015 Syria was teetering on defeat, cut off from revenue and sanctioned by the west. Russia brought a corpse back to life.

“This was the only opportunity Syrians had to regain the whole of their country back. …. They lost momentum”

Syria’s military is battered. Syria is broke and doesn’t even have access to their own oil. They’ve been fighting for the best part of a decade non stop. They can’t sustain offensive after offensive. Machinery breaks down, supplies run low and fighters get exhausted. These ceasefires help the Syrians as much as they help the rebels …. probably more. They are fighting smart …. setting reasonable objectives, advancing in small bites and consolidating their gains so they don’t get overstretched.

Not until the Putin oligarchs give way to real Russians.

Josiah Isaboke

Putin is as real a Russian statesman than anyone can be,,,You mean real Russians like Yeltsin and Nemsov who drove Russia to near bankruptcy selling their souls and resources to the west at peanut price? Get real! At least try to have a mature conversation

AmounRah ✔️ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

You are 100% correct except for one thing:
Russia does not want to fall into a trap and give the west more ammo to use against them.
The one thing that US and EU media excel at….is PR and propaganda which they have been pros at since the 30’s. They EXCEL as smear campaigns and misdirection. AS SOON as Russia does something not by the book, US and EU will foam at the mouth from ecstasy because that will allow them to run “Russia bad” campaign for MONTHS.

Now is the time to cut Turkey supply routes and SAA should hit Turkey military very hard. SAA should make make the same mistake as other countries make. Just waiting, this is bad tactics. SAA need hit Turkey very hard now and cut the supply route now.

Tim Williams

Russian air force is bombing them … all gloves are off now

opet ja

Proof? Hitting Turkrats army would lead Russia into war against Turkey.

Tim Williams

Putin told him that yesterday … pay attention

SAA should destroy TAF….there should be no room to allow TAF backed Jihadists to regroup or counter any form of attack.

Kananda

I am waiting for the order of the bravest, brightest, wisest, cleverest, president of the world to destroy turkish units in Syria.

AleK

Ah, you mean Trump! he is smart, very, very smart, and a genius, very, very stable genius!

Thank you for these updates.

these are coming directly from SAA soldiers in the field and embedded reporters with them … extremely reliable and unfiltered

It is appreciated.

Saint Jimmy (Russian American)

Yeah…. so? I don’t know you from a bum on the street.

Josiah Isaboke

I’ll teach you something!The people you see here are super informed. Once you see something reported here, it takes a minimum of 5 or so hours to be reported in the Western Mainstream Media channels and a maximum of even a week. I have seen something reported on South Front/Veterans Today/AMN/ RT NEWS but it takes 1 week to see the report on BBC or CNN. TRUE STORY!

javier

you shouldn’t take people who are obviously less intelligent seriously , it’s a waste of energy

Arch Bungle

Yes. We should all trust CNN Mr. Russian American.

Josiah Isaboke

So the 2 Turkish soldiers killed and the 6 wounded reported by the Turkish defence ministry died of Malaria IN IDLIB right? OK

Constellation 2023

Wasn’t it 100? Haha.

RAT forces continue to attack al Nayrab .. 3rd attempt … TURK forces no longer in this as casualties are severe

Tim Williams

3 TURK F 16’s flew into Syrian airspace … hightailed it back when S 300 locked onto to them
