Radical Militants Are Amassing Near Syria’s Aleppo: Russian MoD

Illustrative image

Militants are amassing near the northern Syrian governorate of Aleppo, chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Conflicting Sides in Syria Maj. Gen. Yury Borenkov revealed on December 12.

According to the Russian commander, the militants are deploying heavy weapons in the outskirt of Aleppo’s city center, as well as in the governorate’s southwestern countryside.

“Russian surveillance means detected, over the last two days, the deployment of rocket launchers and armored vehicles by illegal armed groups near the city of Aleppo and the town of Abu al-Duhur in Idlib,” RT quoted Maj. Gen. Borenkov as saying.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated Aleppo’s city center in 2016 and the Abu al-Duhur airbase, which is located on the administrative border with southwest Aleppo, more than year later.

A day earlier, opposition sources revealed that Turkish-backed militants are deploying anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launchers along Idlib’s administrative borders with southwest Aleppo.

These developments suggest that the militants are preparing a large-scale attack in southwest Aleppo, or even on the city itself. Such an attack is highly possible due to the suspension of major SAA operations in Greater Idlib.

There seems to be an endless supply of these rats.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

seriously, where the hell are they coming from undetected? its almost as if they are just being randomly spawned like in a video game

Hasbara Hunter

Napalm them all…saves the World a lot of troubles…this Headchopping AngloZioNazi Vermin was transported to Idlibistan in buses to have’m crammed in one spot right?…So that exterminating & turning them into dog-chow would be thoroughly done right? That is how I always understood it….


Fully armed, trained and supported by The United States of America, you forgot to mention.

For as long as the United States of America exists – there will never be any peace in Syria.


Why haven’t they bombed them yet before the terrorists get a chance to attack? It is easier to put them out before the terrorists get a chance to coordinate an attack. Send a bunch of helicopters and clean the area.

Jens Holm

They have bombarded a lot of other things. You really dont get the big picture. Assads has no troops as well as military capasity as we see on paper.

Number one is knowing where the enemy is and its strenght. Assads are very very bad in those matters. Maybee they even have the world record for being blind elefant having no supply lines as well.

I am sure thos Jihadist has done their best to hide too.


Man you are retarded.


Hopefully this means that the offensive on Western Aleppo will start soon. It’s the same scenario like with the Northwest Hama offensive in May. There were also reports that the Jihadis were amassing forces, then the SAA launched the offensive. Securing Aleppo city is the most important thing for me now.

The terrorists seem to redeploy to whatever area isn’t being covered, like slimy rats slipping through a rat-trap.

Jens Holm

Enemy propagandalf only.

Facts are they are well educated veterans having many good plans for defence as well as counterattacks – some bad plans too.

Ma,omg them as slomy rats makes no sense in those matters. Slime often makes a lot very mobile and flexible making it possible to act optimized.


Fact’s, learn proper grammar and say something coherent before claiming facts, you Kurd sodomized dumb-ass Danish tranny,


The terrorists you are referring to are extremely well informed by the same ol and exceedingly well-known seventeen US intelligence agencies which will not rest and will not leave the embattled people of Syria in peace until they make Afghanistan or Libya out of Syria.

And there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Strategic heavy bomber daisy cutters time… Mowing time.

Jens Holm

I dont support those Jihadist, but from a military point I hope they have better plans then last time.


Bitter over your Turds in the north -east, scumbag.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

do not let a single rat get through SAA!!!!!!!! roast them alive!!!!!!!!

Luke Hemmming

Well Russia don’t just sit there talking about It! DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! You now know the positions of these guns and enemy now bomb them while they are still setting up. Get them before they start. Sheesh! It’s frustrating to read these reports and not see anything done about it immediately. I want to read articles that say ‘the enemy amassed troops and heavy guns and equipment but we immediately bombed them and destroyed their capabilities of launching an offensive’. Don’t bother talking to me until they are all destroyed. Actions speak louder than words.


It is also much harder the do an action than to think it. Apparently it is raining, making air support difficult.


,Militants are amassing near the northern Syrian governorate of Aleppo,

So where are Russian bombers when you need them. Just bomb the cr*p out of them, chaps. Every last one…..


“Militants are amassing near the northern Syrian governorate of Aleppo,

There will be more, much more, fully trained armed and supported by the United States of America.

So what’s the point?


Target practice. And every dead terrorist is a good one and less for us to contend with when they hit Europe. They will swot us like flies…..

George Evans

sadly you may be right , Emily…but what a waste…the problem lies with the rascals who arm and train and finance them….


The problem lies deeper than that George. Its the rescals who brainwash and indoctrinate them in the first place. Preparing them for those who do arm, train and finance them. And in Britain we have Saudi financed schools – more all the time – taking in thse kids to brainwash and indoctrinate – and the government seems to look on indulgently. I suggest that when Bojo has done Brexit – he should seriously start looking at Islam in Britain. The greatest danger to our country it has ever faced.


“Radical militants”… those that fight for Asad or for HTS or Russia or the US or who?


Those would be HTS, al Qaeda, or other Muslim Brotherhood type’s.


” Amassing ” ? Not al all my frined when SAA-Russia has not cleara action on this area.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
