Russian MoD Reveals HTS Losses In Northern Hama, Says Terrorist Group Is Planning New Attack

Damaged HTS tank in Kafr Nabudah.

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria, has lost 350 fighters in northern Hama since May 21, Maj. Gen. Viktor Kupchishin, chief of the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria, revealed on May 24.

The terrorist group also lost five battle tanks, one infantry fighting vehicle (IFV), 27 pickup trucks, two vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs) and three multiple missile launcher systems.

Despite these heavy loses, HTS is massing its forces and preparing to launch a new ground attack on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Hama, according to Maj. Gen. Kupchishin.

“Over the past two days, more than 800 militants, at least seven tanks, three armored infantry carries, 15 pickup trucks with heavy machineguns have been pulled to the southwestern part of the Idlib de-escalation zone. According to reconnaissance data, terrorists are planning to use from two to four car stuffed with explosives and driven by suicide bombers to stage an offensive on the Syrian army,” the Russian news agency, TASS, quoted the Russian commander as saying.

HTS, backed by Turkish-backed factions, managed to recapture the town of Kafr Nabudah in northern Hama earlier this week.

Any new attack by the terrorist group and its allies will likely force the SAA to resume its ground operation in northern Hama. The operation was halted on May 18 for unclear reasons.

Well… …And militants — after losing half of their fighters — proud to claim “victory” in syria.liveuamap.com


╭∩╮( ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)╭∩╮

Militants show proof atleast, russia didnt show 1 proof. :)

Loung Kodak

You no have name, is it a proof ?

╭∩╮( ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)╭∩╮

I know you’re ignorant, but Turkey is in idlib and they screwed you in Kafr naboudah

Loung Kodak

I’m glad you as interested by “proofs” but hey… where are YOURS mini tro!! ?

╭∩╮( ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)╭∩╮

I can send you footage of SAA retreating like ants from Kafr Naboudah if you want.

Loung Kodak

Qalaat Al Mudiq is an HTS spokesperson and you show that as relevant LOL

╭∩╮( ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)╭∩╮

Those are your so called tiger forces retreating, little kitten forces

SAA planted mines (there has been article here on militants killed by mines) retreated to draw concentrated (sources say 800) group of militants in to mined areas and then attacked them with rockets and artillery. Honey trap and the jury is still out on Turkey being a part of this as Putin said, “It is better to kill them all there than here”.

Loung Kodak

So tragical but true!


Hey bitch, where are your jihadi terrorist boyfriends now, crushed like cockroaches in 5 minutes: https://southfront.org/syrian-army-enters-kafr-nabudah-following-rapid-attack-map/


╭∩╮( ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)╭∩╮

Here you go, look at ants forces retreating : https://twitter.com/QalaatAlMudiq/status/1131607262840139777

1) Again: source is the same HTS spokesperson with zero credibility, 2) It’s mpossible to say who they are (mybe militants as well) 3) If really SAA, impossible to say if they are going to frontline or “fled”. 4) Footage is NOT showing these people are shelling, not at all! Doubtful… 5) Last but not least, as a video specialist, I can say that the speed of the footage was accelerated, So it’s a fake to make believe people. We can clearly that when we see the smoke and by some artefacts that I won’t reveal here, but I testify it’s a fallacy.

And now, the result is that you’re eligible for my block-list, bye!

Loung Kodak

no proof from russian mod, i saw HTS show around 20-30 vehicles+tanks destroyed and taken kafr naboudah. this was a terrible performance from SAA and russia they wasted 6000 airstrikes with no avail


26.05.2019 update… And, what now? Are you satisfied with proofs that Kafr Naboudah is in Syrian army hands?

Rüdiger Preiss

There is plenty of evidence that most vehicles and tanks destroyed actually belonged to HTS. Your terrorist friends will be grilled soon ;) Say good bye world, all that is left for you is to dream of your 7 virgins hahahaha


Hey you terrorist loving shiteater: https://southfront.org/syrian-army-enters-kafr-nabudah-following-rapid-attack-map/

Keep crying little bitch ??

Wolfgang Wolf

all those arab army fighters are simply idiots… without any professional help from Russia, they would have run away already…


That’s why Europeans have found it so easy to colonize and manipulate them. Arabs can’t seem to function as a large unit, they are still very tribal, and the tribes are small.

Ahmed Taarot or better known as Ahmed the Crystalball approves this message.


Black days for Netanyahu?

Willing Conscience (The Truths

The operation was halted on may 18 because the rebels told Erdogan to stop it, and then Erdogan told Putin to stop it, and then Putin told Assad to stop it, and then Assad said oh no not again, how can I win a war when my ally won’t let me.

Jack Brown

The town of Kafr Nabudah in northern Hama, have been recaptured back by the SAA, according to the Al-Masdar news.
