The recent attempt by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) to expand its influence from the region of Greater Idlib to the northern Aleppo countryside in Syria was met with a fierce response from the Russian military grouping in the country.

The terrorist group advanced in the Turkish-occupied area of Afrin on October 11 under the pretext of supporting its Turkish-backed allies, the al-Hamzah Division and the Suleyman Shah Division, against the Turkish-backed 3rd Corps. On October 15, an agreement with the 3rd Corps solidified the group control over Afrin.

The Russian response to the agreement was fierce. On October 16, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a series of airstrikes on positions of the al-Shamiya Front, faction of the SNA’s 3rd Corps, as well as a large training camp of the Suqur al-Shamal Brigade, a member of the so-called Liberation and Construction Movement within the SNA’s 1st Corps. The movement facilitated the agreement with HTS.

According to the Russian Military Coordination Center in Syria, the airstrikes killed or wounded some 100 Turkish-backed militants. 15 pickup trucks armed with heavy machine guns and rocket launchers were also destroyed.

The Russian airstrikes marked the end of the agreement between the 3rd Corps and HTS. Thousands of civilians in Turkish-occupied areas in the northern Aleppo countryside took to the streets late on October 16 to protest against the agreement. The civilians feared that the agreement could lead to the collapse of the Russian-Turkish de-escalation agreement that kept the region at peace for years.

HTS attacked and captured the town of Azaz, the main stronghold of the 3rd Corps in the northern Aleppo countryside, on October 17.

On the same day, a new wave of Russian airstrikes hit two strongholds of the terrorist group, the towns of Urum al-Jawz and al-Rami, in Greater Idlib. The airstrikes were clearly meant as a warning to the terrorist group.

On October 18, Russia’s military pressure paid off. HTS began withdrawing its militants from the outskirts of Azaz, as well as from many parts of Afrin back to Greater Idlib. Turkish military deployed large forces in the two areas, likely as a warning to the terrorist group.

Ankara understands that the group’s expansion in the northern Aleppo countryside could lead to a confrontation with Syrian government forces, which are backed by Russia.

It remains unclear if HTS will withdraw from all the northern Aleppo countryside in the end. The terrorist group could attempt to keep some of its security forces or even install its officials to run Afrin and Azaz. Russia and its allies in Syria will not likely tolerate such moves by the group, which may be risking its very existence.

Al-Qaeda are the strongest Ground Forces in the World.

Once we have air support neutralized, its game over for filthy jews, and filthy commies.


Al-Qaeda is so strong they destroyed the idol of capitalism, in the heart of americunt.

Al-Qaeda is the most censored community of Humans, who strive to stick it to the jew.

For every filthy jew, a Mujahid will rise to utterly destroy the filthy jew. A Mujahid could take on a thousand commies.


Al qaeda get on well with the US and Israel who set up field hospitals for them, gave them new weapons and pocket money.


Osama Bin Laden is americunts worst nightmare.

americunt is the commies worst nightmare.

Osama Bin Laden is the kufars (filthy jews and filthy commies) worst nightmare.


sf is so afraid of Al-Qaeda, it has to now censor like the filthy jews do.

Don’t trust the Turks.

Real Maple Syrup

That’s what I was thinking. The Turkish “Buffer Zone” … Dozens of permanent bases in Northern Iraq. Who will fill the vacuum of power on the ground? Turkey being engaged already and their economy collapsing. The Turks are primed for a bigger conflict.


maple syrup is made from the blood of Native Indians in the soil, and is used by filthy jews, as a means of branding a useless region of the Earth and convincing racial stereotypes to live there and to refer to themselves as goy.

the filthy jewish code word for this is “Rachel Corrie”.

This group are known as the royally mounted canadian hasbara, who are raised from inane childhood cartoons, and trained to say things like Tim Osman, or Al-Qaeda Affiliated.

All these p7ssies are deathly afraid to be gassed by Hitler, and hence their attempts to censor free speech, and add layers of what is known as motse sheim ra.


canada is more jewish than americunt, and committed conspiracy to murder Natives.

Whatcha gonna do when we come for your bs criminal lies.


Anti-Semite! Bad boy bad boy! That was 100+ years ago. Get over it. My european Grandpa didn’t rape my native grandma. I’m 5/8ths Native Iroquois, but I identify as an Oriental from Japan, who has Hawaiian roots. I’m also a woman with a penis. This is what you sound like to me.

Truss goes the Wizel!

Liz Truss. Shook her little pertuti and lost the plot. Maybe she can be a better wife than a Prime minister. Good riddance to bad rubbish !!


The commies know they were written on the wall in Ezekiel 38, thats why they are afraid of brand names like Ottoman Turkiye, Muslim Brotherhood, Hayat Tahrir AlSham, and the True Meaning of Al-Qaeda.

Rachel Knows.


Turkiye, Ezekiel 38, and the end of filthy jews, and filthy commies.

USA is the shithole of Hell

I do not understand why Russia does not focus 100% on defending the territories in Europe, on exterminating NATO scum of Ukraine.

Abe Lincoln Freed Slaves for ReElection

Eastern Russia. (North Korea, USA-base ridden Japan. Vladivostok is their main port. (Which is developing rapidly) Conflict in former Soviet states/ CSTO partners with defense agreements.

Syria is for the Russian Mediterranean military base/port in Latakia.

(Abe Lincoln didn’t “free the slaves” for 3.5 years during the American civil war, he waited for re-election,. If you can even call it that. Since he wasn’t on the ballot for many states, and that is part of why there was a civil war.)

The term ‘bite off more then you can chew’ comes to mind.


Yes, for both commies and jews and their ghey vday parades for phaggots.

Why should Russia tolerate HTS regardless of what it does or where it goes?

City abortion funding saves city school tax, so much so that cities can then fund country abortions as well, all without answering to country voters.

not sure

AQ is fake and gay. Why don’t you talk about whats really going on? AQ doesn’t exist.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
