Pro-Governemnt Forces Liberate 9 Villages From Militants West Of Khansir (Map)

Support SouthFront

While the Tiger Forces and their allies were repelling a joint attack by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, Ahrar al-Sham and other militant groups in southern Idlib, the Syrian Army and Iranian-backed militants liberated the villages of Um Salasil, Ayath, Subayhah, Zahir al-Ward, Umm Khan, Ym Amad Qibili, Umm Ghubar, Umm Ghuraf and Tal Ahmar in eastern Idlib, west of the government-held town of Khanasir.

Thus, pro-government forces exploited the militants’ counter-attack to achieve more gains in eastern Idlib. Now, the army and its allies need to secure about 8 more km to fully cut off militants operating in northeastern Hama from their counterparts in the province of Idlib.

You are not walking alone.

8KM isn’t that much a distance….if that pocket closes though all those HTS fighters within it are fucked

When the Macedonian king Fillipos, told the Spartans that if they dont bow to him and he win the war then he will make them slaves, the Spartans answered to him one word.

And ISIS, al-Qaid’s allies.

Tudor Miron

Yes they are.


Some reports on the ground said the distance is only 3km now.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

The distance a couple hours before you commented was 3-4 km and that was at 5:32 p.m. in Lebanon reported on Al Masdar, apparently once they both Link up then the attack will be in earnest on the airbase at Abu al Duhur so until then , the ISIS and HTS will continue linking up in that region.

You can call me Al

Yep and the other filthy scum vermin – black ISIS (although no much difference).

Gregory Louis

Yeah I just group them together now no difference between the terror groups agendas anymore :p

Gabriel Hollows

Even now the road is cut off. The encirclement should be complete by Sunday.


Most likely tonight or tomorrow already. It’s just 3km and one or two small towns in between.


The final push for the airbase will most likely start when the troops from Khanasir are linked up with the troops near the air base. Tomorrow will be another bloody day. Now that the de-escalation zone collapsed alot of days will be bloody.

The Russians and Iranians are playing soft diplomacy with Turkey by accusing outside agitators for trying to disrupt the Peace process and we all know who those agitators are.


I like this way SAA is moving. Good luck, be strong and brave man.

Let’s hope there are no more stupid costly intelligence mistakes like those made by the 15 or so whom were captured at Khuwayn , by streaming arrogantly that it took only 4 bullets and no tanks or cannons to capture the village. Things like this lead to your capture after divulging intelligence the enemy didn’t know, this is the problem with those who think arrogantly like this. First rule of warfare is maintain silence during operations until they are complete and not to divulge information in the media as the enemy watches this for intelligence gathering as everyone else does.

This action may result in their deaths and let’s hope others learn the importance of maintaining silence and not divulging important information through arrogant actions ,causing losses that were unnecessary.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
