Russian Aerospace Forces And Syrian Army Rain Fire On Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham Positions In Aleppo, Hama And Idlib

On December 23, the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out dozens of airstrikes on positions of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in southwestern Aleppo, northern Hama and southern Idlib, according to Syrian pro-government sources.

Syrian oppositions sources also reported that the Syrian Arab Army shelled the positions of HTS in the towns of al-Lataminah, Qalaat al-Madiq and Kafr Zita in the northern Hama countryside with a TOS-1A heavy flamethrower system as well as BM-27 Uragan and BM-30 Smerch heavy multiple rocket launchers (MRLs).

The pro-oppositions Syrian Observatory For Human Rights (SOHR) confirmed that the Russian and Syrian bombardment didn’t result in any civilians casualties.

The Russian and Syrian strikes are likely the first stage of the long awaited wide-scaled military operation against HTS and its allies in Idlib governorate. While many Syrian pro-government activists believe that the final aim of the upcoming operation is the Abu Duhur airbase in the southwestern Aleppo countryside, the operation could go as far as advancing deeper into Idlib governatore, according to others.

    A great Christmas present for humanity.

    No civilian casualties. Of course. Assad is caring about his people. Not like in Raqqah where the kurds and USA leveled the town.

    USA has nothing to do in killing people in other countries.

    The US coalition must sued by war crimes in an international court.

    • Rex drabble

      Never going to happen,they OWN the Int court.

      • Carol Davidek-Waller

        The US is not a member of the International Court and refuses to recognize it. THe Court doesn’t have much influence or power, sadly.

        • Ronald

          Ah , but it does . It brings the crimes and those who committed them into the light of day . The world is educated .

          • Hide Behind

            The world will be educated? Who the hell do you think is making the arms, flying the planes and firing the missles, supplying the ignorant killers with arms, and helping those who make war?
            It is the educated financial and political leadershiquaiaant idea.
            d their well educated administrators that make a living by wars.
            The deliberately ignorant care not of resulting chaos upon others. It is not the educated of nations outside of areas of chaos who can stop their leadership’s madness, for they are in comfort zones that they are afraid of upsetting.
            THEY talk and f… with others of their ilk, but to actually resist. Come now what a quaint idea.

          • Carol Davidek-Waller

            I wish that were true.

    • Cheryl Brandon

      ICC ASAP.

    • peter

      Who will this start?OSN ltd USA !They do for war !

  • FlorianGeyer

    The Syrian air force seems very quiet at the moment. Any ideas on that ?

    • Barba_Papa

      Maybe the SyAF leaves Idlib to the RuAF, as it has an airbase pretty much next to it, and concentrates its efforts on the rest of the country?

      • FlorianGeyer

        Could well be, yes.
        I have a dream that the Syrians are retraining to fly new aircraft that have all weather capability and that can defeat US coalition jets. :)

        • Potato Potato

          Nobody can defeat USAF. American pilots are just too good.

          • Tudor Miron

            Now that was a good joke. Are they about the same level now as they were in Korean war? Vietnam? Any better? What made them so good? Knowledge that they fight for their home, defend their mothers and stand for their kids (while bombing civilian Raqqa into dust or destroying entire funerals and weddings) or something less obvious to the rest of the world?

          • James Reece

            The USAF is the best in the world.(behind Israel) Thats not to say other countries dont have good pilots because they do. But when combining the best trained, most experienced with the best aircraft..thats pretty hard to beat..but with that being said, the U.S.does need to get out of syria and just let them fools kill each other. They dont need our help to accomplish their mayham

          • Toni Liu

            Nah russian just hit them in the sky with surface to air missile, until they won in number then send their plane to mop what left from them, most country choose to defend rather than agressively harassing another country like usa used to do

          • James Reece

            There is a good reason why most advance countries like russia, china etc copy our training techniques, our military comand structure and our tactics..not to mention steal our technology….obviously were not inferior. Why would i want to gather all that from an inferior near peer adversary ?..i wouldnt…if he has better than me, then i would want what they have…its simple and standard. All nations do it…right now we do hold the edge..but not by far..russia and china are catching up. Hopefully the day wont come when we have to kill each just to say i told you so..russia china and the U.S. would gain much more helping each other and being allies instead of enemies…im proud of my country too just as you are for yours and i respect that.But until you been in combat and seen the innocent lives it takes and until you have the blood of your enemy on your hands..i wouldnt be so eager to push for war just to see who is better…just words of a advice from an american friend and ex army ranger

          • Tudor Miron

            James…did you even reread your text before posting? I’m not trying to offend but read it carefully: «The USAF is the best in the world.(behind Israel)»© The end of your phrase is contradicting its beginning. “behind Israel” which is behind “XX” which is behind “YY”
            You answered my questions from my post above with this propaganda sentence. Did you actually read my questions?
            It sounds like you do “feel” that something fishy is going in Syria and you don’t want your country to be involved in the mess. “the U.S.does need to get out of syria and just let them fools kill each other. They dont need our help to accomplish their mayham”©
            Problem is that it is your country that initiated this mayham. Do you realize what is actually going on in Libia, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria? What is USA role in what is going on?

          • James Reece

            I probably should clarify…i say the USAF is the best in the world behind israel…. because Its takes more than one aspect to be the best..their pilots are very good. I would say better than ours in many respects. But they lack numbers and top rated aircraft.
            As far as the mayham in the mid east, i dont disagree with you. In alot of ways we did contribute to it starting back in 03 when we attacked iraq when we should of focused on Afghanistan.
            I love my country just as you do yours. But i dont agree with everything she does..unfortunately we dont always get any of the truth until after the killing has already taken place..i seen alot of death in iraq. Unnecessary death.
            But when the real enemy rose. I dont regret the things me and my fellow rangers did. The only thing i regret is the unnessasry loss of innocent life and yes i blame that on our goverment

          • Tudor Miron

            Thanks for honest reply.

          • James Reece

            Ill answer your last question…what is our role in whats going on now over there…i can only give you my opinion. Were not told the truth from the ones who run our country..but i believe were over to to keep iran in check to protect israel…thats whatbi believe

          • Tudor Miron

            Thanks for your reply… but does it bother you (even if a little bit) that in order to “keep iran in check to protect israel”(c) US millions of human beings were killed, displaced, entire states turned into bloody mess, not mentioning thousands of your compatriots that died for that above quote? Does it bother you that US openly supports (arms, inteligence, money, training) the very same Al Queda (rebranded to Al Nusra and now HTS) that supposedly (according to official US position) is responsible for 9/11?

          • James Reece

            Of course that bothers me. It bothers alot of americans and american soldiers…were no different than anybody eles..we have a volunteer military. We sign up and serve because we want to protect our country..you dont think it bothers many people to find out truths after the fact..i love my country. I have fought for my country and will again if im called too..but its my country and the soldier next to me is whom im fighting for…not our goverment

          • James Reece

            We see eye to eye in many things..i hear your compasion in your words..we both see the same thing. Both dislike the same things. We both have families we love. I put one shoe on at a time just like you. I dont hate you because your government or religion is different than mine..but the animosty comes from the lies both our governments tell and the truth is some where in the middle.
            You havent asked me if i would do it again….maybe you werent going to. But incase you are curious.. yes. If i was called to serve in our next war i would with out hesitation…but praying it would be for the right reasons

          • Tudor Miron

            Again. Thanks for honest reply.

          • Potato Potato

            The Libyans and Iraqis were completely annihilated by USAF, even though they were “fighting for their home”.

          • Tudor Miron

            Lybians and Iranqis? That’s what makes US pilots being the best? US took a gun to a knife fight and now feel proud about it?

          • Potato Potato

            You are trying to say that pure patriotism will make up for garbage equipment and training.

          • Tudor Miron

            No, that’s your assumption that I’m trying. However, garbage equipment didn’t prevent Hezbollah from kicking some IDF ass in 2006. How did it happen? Please tell me – did USA have better equipment during Vietnam war?

          • Potato Potato

            Guerilla warfare does not work in the sky.

          • Tudor Miron

            Guerilla? Are you aware of USAF “problems” in the sky over Vientam?

          • Potato Potato

            There was a lot less of a technological disparity between NVA and USAF back in the 60s. New gen airplanes like MiG-21 were alot cheaper than new gen airplanes that exist today. USSR gave out MiG-21s to NVA like candy.

          • Tudor Miron

            “a lot less of a technological disparity between NVA and USAF back in the 60s.” a lot less than currrent disparity between USAF and who?

          • Potato Potato

            USAF and RuAF

          • Tudor Miron

            Interesting. May I ask that you describe that “technological disparity between USAF and RuAF” in a bit more detail?

          • Potato Potato

            F-15 > MiG-29.
            As proven in Iraq and Yugoslavia.

        thanks, I’ll look into that. Meanwhile, I’m going to be posting this to as much groups as I can find

    UN only works against poor small countries to promote USA/NATO imperialism.

  • Tudor Miron

    Where is Solomon? I wanted to ask our expert how come Russians are raining hell on jihadi rats when they are all “gone and left Assad behind”? But honestly I have a strong feeling (and knowing that “army construction work” was going very intensively behind the scenes) that SAA is in much better shape now. It is really starting to look as better organized force.
    Also I’m happy to hear that Syrians finally finished buratino (tos 1a) training course and starting to use those beasts at their best – devastating heavily fortified positions.
    And some good news from other sources: https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/russia-gives-syrian-army-whole-battalion-t-90-battle-tanks/
