Pro-Government Sources Announce Another Ceasefire In Northern Hama

Illustrative image

A temporary ceasefire agreement in the northern Hama countryside has been reached, Omar Rahmoun, a prominent pro-government figure, announced on June 12.

According to Rahmoun, who is a well-known mediator between the government and the opposition, the new ceasefire agreement will last for at least three days.

Pro-government activists said that the frontlines in northern Hama have been witnessing full calmness for more than 12 hours now. The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces also suspended their combat operations over Greater Idlib.

Last month, a similar temporary ceasefire agreement allowed Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies to launch a large-scale attack in northwestern Hama. The same scenario was repeated last week when the terrorist group took advantage of another ceasefire to launch a successful ground assault on the villages of Jibeen and Tell Meleh.

These repeated violations raise serious questions about the motivations behind these ceasefire agreements, which appear to be nothing but second chances for HTS and its allies.

    No thanks to Russian pressure and pandering to the headchoppers. This war will never end!

  • Saddam Hussein

    Bad news for the Syrian Arab Army. The Israeli regime will just arm the terrorists again.

    • Free man

      how exactly ?
      Through it’s great rival Turkey?
      You’re not really smart .

      • Sinbad2

        Turkey was selling the oil ISIS stole from Syria to Israel, they are both crooks, just competing gangs.
        But obviously Israel won’t pay for the weapons, that’s what their pet goon America is for.

  • gustavo

    So, pro-government announces another stupidity, well, there you are….Russia is still pleasing Turkey.

    We will see if Russia will continue plesing Tyrkey after terrorists destroy Russias basis with the help of Turkey weapons supply.

    • Leon

      Without Iran and Hezbollah Russia would have lost Tartous and Hmeimin in 2014 or during the first half of 2015. Russia is an unfaithful ally.

  • klove and light

    iam pro assad, pro Iran, pro hezbollah and pro houthi BUT

    this bs that has been going on in syria now for the past 6 months is ridiculous and pathetic.And if Things continue this path….it aint gonna end good for the assad Government…this includes the numerous and various Agreements between Russia and the invading Forces number 1 in syria TURKEY, the bs Agreements that Russia has with Israel on syrian, hence Russia becoming a non acting Partner to their so called allied Nation of syria in regards to over 2000+ bombing campaigns by IDF.And the dozens of agrreement called “Reconciliation Agreements” between Russia and various jihadi Groups including alnusra as seen in ALEPPO (over 7000 jihadi pricks with light arms were allowed to move to Idlib……as ssen in DOUMA.. over 3000 jihadi pricks with light arms were allowed to move to Idlib…..as seen in QUINETRA and other parts of southern syria like DARAA… were thousands of jihadi pricks were allowed to move to Idlib or even Better(that better is sarcasm now-) stay in south syria but reconcile with the Government.
    Everybody here knows the consequences of These bs agreemenst….just look at n.hama and Idlib and kabani in Latakia. Secondly, as written here by southfront in numerous articles in the past 3 weeks, the attacks of so called “SLEEPERCELLS” of various Groups in southern syria, which include assasinations of highly ranked officers of SAA or the total Takeover of SAA Intelligence base HQ with dozens of SAA officres as hostages just last week.

    I wonder if the UDSSR would have won against nazi Germany by Reconciliation of the thousands of ukraines, White russians, memebers of Baltic states,romanians,bulgariaans who DECIDED to FIGHT for nazi Germany.

    WELL RUSSIA DID NOT RECONCILE WITH THEM.Quess what.They killed them….either on the Battlefield or in the Gulag.

    ONE DOES NOT RECONCILE WITH THE ENEMY espeically when the war is still on.That is pure nonsense and ridiculuos.And Right now , SAA has to pay the Price in N.Hama, Latakia, Idlib and southern syria.Through the continuos inactions on IDF bombing campaigns, u make yourself weeker and weeker and weeker each day and week.Each day and week passes without SAA attacking the treacherous kurds, again makes u weeker and weeker and weeker each day that goes by.

    Right now, SYRIA is partioned.PERIOD! up North.. TAF and their proxies.

    to the EAST the treacherous kurds with the US airforce protecting them

    south inAl-tanf US Forces Training and helping jihadi headchoppers without them having to fear just 1 fucking day in the year theyjust mighht get attacked by the Forces of the Nation they occupy.well not in syria…here it seems the Motto is “take whatever u fucking want” dont be afraid of the goverments Forces because either they simply wont attack invaders and occupiers like in east syria or al-tanf OR they make constant agreemenst and ceafires with invaders,rapists,head Choppers,occupiers……………..nobody is taking SAA serious anymore.not the USA,not the kurds,not Turkey, no jihadi pricks….. and frankly… why should they

      • Ozarkania

        That’s war, baby. The only way to win is to play.

        • RichardD

          They are winning. And at a lower cost than what idiots like you would do.

          • Ozarkania

            All that ceasefires do is give the terrorists time to regroup and entrench. The government’s only option is to push now before three million jihadis flood down from Turkey. Yeah, people will die, live ruined, misery made, but the only thing that matters is taking the objective. Your way is the loser’s way.

          • RichardD

            The ceasefire is to get civilians out of the way. 3 million terrorists aren’t going to invade from Turkey. And ceasefires and descalation agreements have been used contentiously as the Syrian government has gone from controlling 10% of it’s land to 60% soon to be 70%.

          • Natalis

            I hope you are right and I am wrong, but I am very pessimistic, Syria will be split and with all the oil field and most arable lands in kurdish/rebel hands it has no chance to recover, I think it is better that the Russian paint targets on their base telling the jihadists please hit here

          • RichardD

            Al-Tanf and the Kurds will be taken care of after Idlib.

          • Jens Holm

            The same arapnafobia. 1) Syria already is split up. It has been for many many decades and Assads systematicly has done that by excluding people as well as reforms 2) Oil and gas cant be exported out from the SDF area for free. How comes????? 3) its not true most arable land is in the SDF zone. Even if it was, because its true they do grow things well in the non abandonned dry land, the SDFs has to buy a lot of very needed stuff as well.

            Furthermore its for oil, gas and agriculture a must to reform those ineffective sectors. On maps we are told old oilfields are empty. Thats not true. They are empty because there is not invested in modern western methods which often can give 3-5 times more oil even its a little more expensive pr barrel.

            The same goes for farming. Syria is farming as in ancient times also wasting water to the sky for nothing. Its well known its much better havin 10 hektars giving 40 times back, but Syria mainly has 40 hektars in small lots giving only 10 times back.

            I allow me to add Turks seemes to take more water from Eufrat and Tigres as well as they will get less rain.

          • Jens Holm

            Syria is the loser if the gangsters in Damaskus win. And what do they win.

            As if You say tourist prefares to see many graves and ruins and many of them.

          • Jens Holm

            As usual a lot here dont get how weak Assads are.

            Crap telling ther eonly is one option as well as its decided by Assads.

          • National Pride

            My reaction to peacenik bullshit:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIgfiSzCy1o

          • Jens Holm

            Its a very sober coment, that Assads are weaker. The same goes for others apart from the Turks and Russians.

          • National Pride

            Well, the government may, indeed, be too weak to recapture Idlib, but the fact remains that there is simply no diplomatic solution to the problem. Whether it takes months or decades, this war will be won in the traditional manner. Bloodshed cannot and shall not be avoided.

        • Jens Holm

          Thats not correct. All can be winners at the same time, if they make peace or at least no war.

          Idlib to mere is more like playong Tic tac toe in wargames = NO WINNERS.

    • Leon

      It’s very simple and you are totally right. The explanation is the double ( or even the quadruple) game of Russia.
      1) Totally pro-Israel. (agreement for the bombing, S300 switch off all the time, no retaliation allowed)

      2) Erdogan playing very well ( S400, Southstream, maybe Suckois, maybe quit OTAN.) totally blocks Putin in Idlib
      3) NE of Syria almost given to US/Turkey/Kurds to weaken Syria and please Israel
      4) Trading parts of Syria for parts of Ukraine is maybe what Putin is looking for.
      What matters for Russia is Tartous and Hmeimin. Period.

    • Natalis

      Agree with you 100%, Syria was the only no former USSR country that allowed Russia to have a military base, it should have been protected since the beginning of the civil war. If I were a leader of a country I would rather allow the yankees to open a military base than the Russians. Sad to say, but this is the truth.

      • Jens Holm

        If I was Leader of Syria, I would see the main problems are the Leadership of today.

    • Xoli Xoli

      Very true you are 1000% right.

  • jm74

    One becomes rather suspicious of these tactics which have proven to be detrimental to Syria so one suspects that Russia has made a deal with the US/NATO that they have what is east of the Euphrates and Tukey has north of Idlib. Turkey threatening to go after the Kurds has been a haphazard affair; lacking seriousness.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Russian ceasefire shit to please Erdopig mother fucker bloody terrorists.

    • Joe Dickson

      Erdopig has not been seen since Friday, speculation is he may be dead.

    • Astrid Watanabe

      Looks like I was wrong thinking Russia would quit the ceasefires after getting insulted by Erdogan.

      • Sinbad2

        This is war, insults are nothing, it’s the bullet in the head that hurts.

      • Xoli Xoli

        Putin is so into Erdogan because out of fear maybe he will down Russia jets. All the countries who down Russia jets are Putins best friends to hide the shame.

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      Watch your blood pressure carefull🐷

      • Xoli Xoli

        I will make your grandma my prostitute.

  • Rob

    Russia, Turkey and their allies have completely failed to establish Syrian forces control on Hama, Idlib, Al-Rukhban and on the rest of Syria with in four years.

    Therefore, it gives chances to US, Israeli, AL-QAEDA and ISIS terrorists to attack and butcher Syrian nation again and again to destabilise the country and establish themselves there. The next target of America and Israel is Turkey and Russia. It has already started as I see the incidence in Russia.

  • Joe Dickson

    I told you the SAA General Staff was incompetent, now maybe after the third time someone will listen.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Putin jeopardized Russian military capability. Putin likes to appear in cameras to be call good man.Putin allow Israel and Turkey to destroy Syria.He just forget that what ever affects Syria affect Russia too.Because if Syria falls USANATO will take over Tartus and Heimeimen Syrian Russian base.Putin must take his army and futsek to Moscow or to Israel or Turkey.Bloody stupid KGB spy who let Soviet fall.

  • Why does southfront claim to have sources in the Syrian army?

  • Free man

    good news.
    The SAA is losing a lot of soldiers in this war of attrition.
    Russia is wisely trying to reach a long-term cease-fire agreement.

  • Edvin R

    The SAA got decimated in their offensive.They lost over 300 people,over 10 tanks,armored vehicles,technicals and even airplanes.Billions in dollars worth missles and granades.Yesterday they showed reinforcements with T54 tanks taken out of storage!? Numerious failed attacks.Two generalls and nummerious officers.Total disaster and failure.

    • Rhodium 10

      and what about terrorist, vehicles,buildings, farms, olive fields, wheat fields..after airstrikes and artillery?…without air defense thay are sitting ducks for hunters!

  • ╭∩╮( ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)╭∩╮

    Opposition sources and Turkey rejected ceasefire, SAA will be obliterated :)

  • molambo .

    More time for the terrorists to arm themselves! Meanwhile, Israel normally bombs Syria and Russia washes its hands. Your base all week is attacked! Will we have to see a new Russian plane be knocked over and have Russian victims for Russia to move? SAA advance is ridiculous!

  • Rhodium 10

    The problem is that incompetent SAA staff thought that with RUAF on air and Tiger Forces on ground were enough to defeat terrorist in N Hama and Idlib….well even a kid knows that SAA are not a reliable force to combat well armed, fanatic and trained terrorist…Tiger Forces( as offensive forces) can take and retake village…but later SAA/NDF conscripts flee from there when HTS are coming…and left weapons!…we have seen it along the Syrian war!..only Russian Speznats, Hezbollah and Shia militia deployed on ground have ability to confront terrorist and keep retaken territories as we have seen also in Iraq where Iraqi army was unable to defeat ISIS without the help of Iraqi shia PMU…the problem is that Shia forces are needed to keep safe the Iraq border from Al Bukamal to Deir Ezzor vs ISIS and US backed SDF, beside the Syria-Lebanon border and some parts in South Syria!…Sadly Syria is surrounded by powerful enemies!…the solution is not a truce..its to stop offensive operation and continue with selective airstrike vs HTS in order to avoid that terrorist take oxygen!

    here the Breaking News to the ceasefire 2.0

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham has formally rejected the ceasefire that was announced earlier today in the northwestern region of Syria.
    In a statement released this afternoon, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham said they reject any ceasefire with the Syrian and Russian armed forces, vowing to keep fighting them in northwestern Syria.
    Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham is one of the largest rebel groups in Syria; they make up a large portion of the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front.
    Despite Ahrar Al-Sham’s rejection, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has not launched an attack in northwestern Syria today.
    The Syrian military has also halted their airstrikes over the Idlib and Hama governorates in order to adhere to the ceasefire that was brokered by the Russian Armed Forces.

    • Astrid Watanabe

      According to en.farsnews.com Erdogan has actually ORDERED the terrorists in Idlib to resist the Syrian Army until G20 summit [later this month in Japan]
      I can hardly believe the Russians put up with this, especially since they demanded Erdogan to withdraw the militants but Erdogan rejected it. [according to farsnews]

  • klove and light

    and here to the territory captured by BOTH SIDES……

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) offensive in northwestern Syria has been nothing short of bloody; however, in the end, they have managed to seize a large chunk of territory from the jihadist rebels.
    Since they lost their offensive in early May, the Syrian Arab Army has captured approximately 200 square kilometers of territory between northwestern Hama and southwestern Idlib.

    Among the areas captured by the Syrian Arab Army since early May are the towns of Kafr Naboudeh, Al-Qasabiyah, and Qal’at Al-Madiq.
    While they have captured several areas from the jihadists, the Syrian Army has also lost some territory that they previously controlled before launching this offensive.
    The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their Turkish-backed allies have seized approximately 35 square kilometers of territory in northwestern Hama this month.
    Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza recently captured the key hilltop of Tal Malah and the nearby town of Jibeen.
    The capture of Tal Malah has resulted in the closure of the main road between the government strongholds of Mhardeh and Sqaylabiyeh.
    The Syrian Arab Army is now preparing to launch a big assault in the coming days to retake this large hilltop from the jihadist rebels and their allies.
