Syrian government forces led by General Suheil al-Hassan have encircled 1,500 militants of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) in eastern Idlib, the Russian Defense Ministry said, according to the state-run media.

“Assault troops of the Syrian governmental forces under command of General Hassan Suhel, while advancing along the road connecting Hama and Aleppo, joined the militia units near Herbet al Ghajar and Rasm al Harmal,” the defense mijnistry annonced. “Thus, they have completed encirclement of a large group of terrorist belonging to the terrorist organization Jabhat Al-Nusra in the eastern part of the Idlib Province.”

The ministry noted that the besieged militants are armed with battle tanks, armoured vehicles, artillery pieces and mortars. Now, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies are working to eliminate this group of militants.

According to the Russian media, government forces have killed over 600 militants in eastern Idlib and southern Aleppo under the operation in the area over the last month.

The SAA liberated the key Abu al-Duhur airbase in eastern Idlib on January 21. Next day, the SAA and the Tiger Forces liberated the nearby town of Abu al-Duhur.

    No more free bus rides for these Zionist terrorists, just a one way ticket to HELL.

    • VGA

      No, they should try to get 300-400 ISIS wild dogs into Idlib and then stand back and watch the fireworks!

    • Melotte 22

      Exactly right. Never understood that Russian strategy. Same happened so many times in Ukraine with Bandera filth. Bullet in the head for every single one of them. It might save some children’s lives.

    Power to the Syrian People! Victory to the SAA and allies!

  • World_Eye

    Nice keep them coming in bigger numbers, and we the International People want to see these 1500 HTS in that pocket dead in a matter of a time. That will be too good.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    as long they allow the anglozionists and allies to supply the isis with guns and new blood, this carnage will never end. Instead of hitting the saddle, is time to attack the main body and the cause of all this atrocities they are happening in ME.

    • Bigjobby

      What happens then? Sounds good on paper but do you think anything would improve? The Zionists using Israel as it’s proxy army may welcome something like that-remember those creating the wars never suffer in combat.

      • Weldon Cheek

        Explain “zionists using israeli as its proxy army”? I thought the israeli army WAS the zionists army,no secrets,no proxys or stand in,plain and simple,a tool to threaten and cajole the countrys around it and to protect israel from the attacks that would come from those that suffer from the zionist curse.

  • adzsiam

    Interesting that HTS didn’t withdraw these assets while they had the chance to escape the encirclement.

    • Rüdiger Preiss

      They are probably all on drugs :D

    • Bill Wilson

      One can only presume that HTS and ISIS have become united in that pocket with plans to punch their way out into Idlib.

  • Syria insider
    • Rüdiger Preiss

      If HTS fighters were running with their heads straight into a wall they’d be trying to become sane. Question is, do they become sane? I’ll leave the answer to the bemused readers :D

    • Rüdiger Preiss

      Hey Syrian Insider, has one of your HTS friends just sent you their last view before they died :)?

      • Syria insider

        I am not an HTS fan or any of that shit so please fuck of. And the picture was stolen from a website.

        • Ivanus59

          Hahaha, no you are not a fan, you just spread lies. :) you are like our new SOHR.

          • Syria insider
          • Ivanus59

            Yes but not having proof does not stop you from spreading the information with absolutely no source behind it… That is the problem you see because not having any proof or source behind your information SHOULD stop you from spreading it. -.- lol it’s basic intelligence.

          • Tudor Miron

            Don’t waist your time on this wahhabi agitator. Basic intelligence is not for him otherwise he would not try to support anti human terrorist head choppers.

            Azov are in no way a Russian friend, but Ukrainian Nazi’s.

          • BMWA1

            Yes, but Solomon called Tudor a dog, really, he should be bat!

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            True Tudor should be a bat , but Solomon is still an Azov Nazi Collaborator and more like a lapdog .

          • BMWA1

            Of course bat is compliment

    • Barba_Papa

      I can’t see shit on that picture. If someone said it was my neighbor’s backyard I’d believe it too. If this picture is the proof of a successful Al Nusra counter attack I wouldn’t place any bets on it.

      • Rüdiger Preiss

        Ok to give Syrian Insider some credit, your neighbours backyard unlikely would have camouflaged hangers as clearly seen on the picture. So maybe the image has indeed been taken along the perimeter fence of the Abu al-Duhur airbase. However, their target doesn’t seem any close / there’s nothing there to attack and by the time they got somewhere close, most likely nobody would have been able to press the button on the camera anymore :p. I highly doubt there was any success, so you got excited a bit prematurely, Syria insider (aka Syria outsider) ;)

        • You can call me Al

          That was at leas 5 days ago.

        • Barba_Papa

          So its an unidentifiable pic of some military installation, could be anywhere, at any time. For all we know its stock footage. Hardly conclusive evidence. At least how us some Jihadis with a recent newspaper near an entrance sign. Even though that could be photoshopped, that at least has some validity.

      • You can call me Al
        • Solomon Krupacek

          i see, you are homosexual

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Do you have anything credible to bring to the debate or are you a complete and utter moron with your name calling.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        i also read this information

    • Mustaffa Ashaa

      Syrian insider: Maybe your sister sent you this info. Be assured she is confused because she is overworked in “Jihad el-Nikah” with so many Saudis and Chechens. Tell her to make the most of her hot sexy “Jihad” because very soon all her Wahabi lovers will be cold and limp.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        i read also this news

        • PZIVJ

          So you are also in touch with his sister ?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            you fag

        “Hot sexy Jihad”
        Just love the thought, maybe these guys could go into battle in G strings, that would certainly scare people.

  • alexis

    Good job, guys…

  • northerntruthseeker .

    1500 dead US mercenaries and operatives is a good thing…. Lets hope that happens quickly and mercilessly…

  • Wolfgang Wolf

    and now: kill them! no blabla and no reconciliation!! put it to an end!!!!

  • gustavo

    Good news, congratulation to SAA.

  • Redadmiral

    Great day for the Syria people delivered by their Heroic Army and Allies. The main battle has been won with over 30% of these snakes already put to the sword, however, the final battle is still some distance off. Might be better to negotiate the surrender of this rabble rather than have the precious lives of their warriors unnecessarily risked in a mop-up operation.

    • Sinbad2

      Whilst I agree with your sentiments regarding the SAA, the terrorists will be rearmed by the USA, if they are allowed to live. The only way to stop people joining the American terror armies, is to make it known that taking American money is a death sentence.

  • Hrky75

    Since it’s idlib, busing them to – Idlib – makes no sense. Terminate every last sheepshagger in the pocket, with extreme prejudice.

  • Mustaffa Ashaa

    No mercy …. No prisoners ….. Send them soon to their promised 72 virgins …. while their Bio-degradable rotten bodies can be used as fertilisers to the land that they betrayed for a handful of petro-dollars of their Saudis/Qatari Salafi wahabis

    • Astar Roth

      Good one. But these are foreigners, mostly. Wahabies and such shiit.

  • χρηστος

    take no prisoners

    • BMWA1

      In this case, Christ might agree :)

  • Ray Douglas

    Can some one explain how the terrorists managed to get tanks, armoured vehicles and artillery into that part of Syria?

    • Sinbad2

      Uncle Samuel has unlimited resources.

      • goingbrokes

        As does Uncle Shlomo.

        • Sinbad2

          Same dude.

    • Astar Roth

      Hahaha, you serious? Have you ever herad of Zionists fascists and wahabies?

    • Bill Wilson

      Those were already there, thanks to the considerable number of army bases and supply depots the Syrian government had scattered thru out the country. Some were seized when “opposition” forces took over those locations and many were captured out in the field after engagements.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Many came from Libya as well, courtesy of the USA.

  • BMWA1
  • Jim Dozier

    Good. Now chop their heads off

  • Mortal

    So many virgins are waiting for their masters. Hurry up!
