Russian Warplanes Rain Hell On Radical Militants In Western Aleppo (Video)

Warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a series of airstrikes on positions of radical militants in northern Syria for the second time in the last 24 hours.

Syrian oppositions sources said that the airstrikes targeted Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) forces in the towns of Darat Izza, Kafrnaha, Jamiat al-Rahal, Urum al-Kubra and the 111th Regiment base in the western Aleppo countryside. The radical group captured most of these areas from the Turkish-backed Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement in the last few days.

HTS’ news network, Iba’a, said that the radical group responded to the Russian airstrikes by shelling positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the district of al-Rashidin in the outskirt of the city of Aleppo. The news network claimed that seven Syrian service member were killed in the shelling. However, pro-government source doubted these claims.

Earlier on January 4, Russia warplanes conducted several airstrikes on positions of radical militants in the southern Idlib countryside. Local observers said that the aerial attack was a response to new violations of the Russian-Turkish demilitarized zone agreement.

These airstrikes may represent a new strict policy against the radical militants in northern Syria. This new policy will likely deter the militants and encourage Turkey to implement its commitments within the demilitarized zone agreement.

      I’m not so sure……perhaps they waited for the terrorist forces to concentrate and then the Russians engaged them in a turkey shoot (lol no pun intended, but now it kinda does make sense haha!)

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Actually Russia has quite bizarre and schizoid polices, it gives conflicting messages to all sides. On the one hand it calls the Americunts and their NATO poodles “partners” while they try to destroy Russia and grab its resources, on the other hand it has failed to develop strong military alliances with powerful states like Iran. Russia also showed a very weak response when Zionists killed 15 Russians on the IL-20. While the Jew controlled western media on the front page of London Times is openly stating that the Americunts are bringing in Wahhabi terrorists from Syria into Ukraine and they are being armed by NATO puppets. Russia needs to get tough and start acting or the next terror war will be on Russian soil. The Zionist scum are firmly entrenched in Ukraine and the money is coming from Saudis.

    Anti-Syria terrorist brands killing each other on the ground while Russia bombs them from above …. Happy New Year !

    • James

      Indeed, what could be a more welcome start to the year! The US led gangs of terrorists are up to their usual tricks, so the the Russians get more target practice.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Russia really needs to go all out and wipe out all terrorists in Syria because if this Salafist cancer is allowed to survive, it will spread into Russia via Ukraine, where the Americunts and NATO poodles are transporting these vermin. Eastern Ukraine is now the training ground for US sponsored Wahhabi terrorists.

        If Ukraine will allow that, Russians will EASILY claim that Ukrainian regime supports terrorists against them, and will have every right to wipe out the Ukie government.

The new revelations belie Western discourse and demonstrate that the current interim government of Oleksandr Tourtchynov was imposed by NATO in violation of international law.

    bomb HTS to encourage Turkey to implement its commitments within the demilitarized zone agreement…
    this demilitarized zone agreement only benefit turkey occupation . its better to let HTS win , cancel demilitarized zone agreement and liberate idlib

      Good point, hope the battle intensifies with rats NFL and NSA getting involved.
      Perhaps even some TFSA from the north will get involved against HTS. It’s all good news. :)

      Your a Greek, and Greeks who don’t hate Turks are flushed at birth.
      But your hatred does not manifest any facts on this complex matter.

      Greeks whinge about Turks like Jews whinge about everything.

      • Brother Ma

        One does not have to be a Greek to hate Turks. To compare Greeks to Jews is mindless. The former have demonstrated objective reasons to hate Turks as do All Europeans and other peoples who have lived under Islam or Turks . Opening any history book suffices.

        The Jews have no demostrated reason to whine about anything. They had it good under the Moslems for five hundred years.They still do ,in Iran.

        Do you think Syria believes Greeks whine about Turks uneccessarily? Which Moslem country likes Turks apart from the new sluts Albania and stolen-kosovo?

        You making throwaway comments like this is beneath you as i appreciate most of your commentary .

    • FlorianGeyer

      A love affair of pragmatic exigency I suspect :)

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Any areas that have HTS in control are fair game for the SAA, it’s good news if they take territory from the FSA/NFL, that just means the SAA can freely attack them there whenever they want to, but the areas the FSA/NFL control can’t be attacked by the SAA at all. So the more territory HTS controls when the SAA finally makes a move the better, that means the SAA will be able to take back even more territory than they could have without breaking their part of the Asatana agreement. So come on HTS, take back even more territory from the FSA/NFL, spread yourselves even thinner on the ground than you are already, that’s exactly what the SAA want you to do, good lads.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Ironically, this could be the method Erdogan is using to withdraw from Idlib and why he is redeploying his pet terror gangs to different areas outside Idlib.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        Yes I also think that’s exactly what’s been happening over the last 2 or 3 months, it’s actually become blatantly obvious to anyone who pays attention. The fact that Erdogan became confident enough to threaten an invasion into Kurdish held Manbij should have also been a hint, but no one seems to put the two things together.
        I suspected an agreement was made between Putin and Erdogan sometime before the November Astana talks, that gave Erdogan certain assurances of security, and also emboldened him to make the threat to invade Manbij with confidence.
        Idlib is a sinkhole for Erdogan’s cash, he makes no money there at all, just spends tons of it keeping the show going, and Turkey’s literally nearly broke as it is, so Turkey can’t afford to pay the bills there for much longer, when the cash runs out, Erdogan will have no choice but to leave, that’s INEVITABLE.
        But if he gets out of southern Idlib voluntarily, his bills not only halve, he also only needs a quarter of the forces he has there now to secure what’s left of his territory, which frees up even more men for his invasion force, why would he want to stay in southern Idlib, that’s a more relevant question that no one seems to ask.
        If Putin and Erdogan did do a deal that allows Erdogan to pull his forces out of southern Idlib, and I think they did, HTS will be eliminated by all 3 parties, SAA/Russians/Turks+proxies.
        Assad will move into the vacated HTS areas, and Erdogan will consolidate his forces in the north.
        Erdogan with Putin’s assurances, will only need to leave a skeleton force to police what’s left of his territory in northern Idlib, and the rest he can do with as he pleases. The cash he saves from abandoning southern Idlib, he can now spend on more important things, like paying for an invasion, or better still his own economy.
        SF posted a story concerning a high level rebel commander who made accusations of collusion between Erdogan, Putin and others, concerning the demise of HTS, that was the final nail in the coffin for me, I had already suspected the collusion months before, [and made many posts on SF concerning my suspicions], but after that one little story I was left with no doubt at all.
        All eyes are looking towards Manbij because that’s where all the rebel proxies and the bulk of the Turks vehicles are, but the Turks have been very clever, they’ve also set up another second invasion force on the Al Hasakah/Turkish border, but that force only consists of regular Turkish soldiers, I also find this highly suspicious.
        The Russians are already imbedded with the US in Manbij, but until they move into all the areas adjacent to the Turkish/Syrian border, I don’t think a Turkish invasion is off the cards just yet.
        All Erdogan needs is one genuine Kurdish attack [Turkish PKK, or Syrian YPG attack on Turkish soil], or if that doesn’t happen, a well devised false flag attack, to open hostilities against the Kurds, and once it starts, it will only end when either Erdogan wants it to end, or someone ends it for him.
        With Russian troops imbedded with the US at Manbij, the invasion of Manbij is impossible now, Erdogan needs another way in, so keep an eye open to the north, if an invasion begins, it will only be from the north now, and since he’s been building up his forces near the Al Hasakah/Turkish border, I suspect this will be the location it starts if it does.

        • FlorianGeyer

          I agree.

          Whatever happens though, Erdogan is left with a huge problem. There will be tens of thousands of Turkish proxy criminal warlords and their gangs , plus their families, who are essentially unemployable in any meaningful way.

          It would not be like disbanding regular army soldiers and more akin to setting drug gangs free to disrupt civil society.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            I’m afraid Assad will probably inherit half the problem as well, but at least Assad’s hands won’t be tied when and if he has to deal with them, Erdogan’s will be though, so that should be fun to watch when it happens, unless you live in Turkey or northern Idlib that is.

  • BL

    Let the terrorist dogs destroy each other, don’t waste resources trying to help either side unless one side is about to get defeated completely.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      but is not the terrorists killing each other is turkey eliminating who dont agree with her so she can permanently occupy northern syria before looking to the east and from the sounds of it russia is helping them while keeping SAA out of this fight intentionally. I wonder if turk gas pipe line they building, worth all the double dealings they been doing all this time, with turkey. History teach that eventually double dealings are paid back in full when you least expect it.

      • BL

        You believe Russia is giving away Syrian territory to Turkey?

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          believing is based on faith and not matter of fact. Base on what is been happening up to now and knowing why russia is bending over for turkey same reason actually UK/US does the same I have very little doubt if any.

          • BL

            You didn’t respond to my comment though. Why would Russia destroy its own image over a freaking pipeline that could be made through an alternative route? Russia would literally end up looking like an unreliable selfish backstabber to the entire world. You’re just speculating about Russia’s intentions. You don’t really know what the plan is for sure.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            and you are assuming based on your sympathies and not facts. As for why russia as you put it will ruin her reputation…….. what reputation exactly? And no they can not build it any where, they building it via turkey, is almost done so is no turning back on that.

            And I have answered your question if you cared to acknowledge facts and not base your assumptions on emotion rather than logic and facts. You are right on one thing you saying. I dont know russias plans no. Just see where their actions and partnerships lead to and what I see is on this side of the world to a very big cluster fuck.

          • BL

            I’m not going based on emotions, I’m using facts. So far Russia has not done anything to show they intend to backstab Syria. Everything they have done so far shows they plan to help restore Syria to its original condition. And this is not speculation, Russian leadership has repeatedly called for everyone to respect Syria’s territorial integrity in every meeting they have had with foreign leaders. I’m not saying your theory is 100% wrong but it would definitely represent a major change in Russia’s Syria policy. And of course it would affect Russia’s image. Every country wants to be seen as reliable and trustworthy. If you develop a reputation as a backstabber you will have a hard time finding genuine partners and allies around the world.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            k believe what make you feel comfortable and I respect that. If every country wanted what you think they want this world would have been heaven on earth and instead is absolutely s*it and worst.

            The game played here it is energy game and whose in control of it. And stop using selective memory. Russia is looking after her own interest and yes they said what you say they said we all hear it. But then when you say one thing and you do the exact opposite of what you said not in one occasion but many, then you make even the ones who support you, to think twice about your motives.

            And another thing is not rocket science where all this is going. Watch and understand facts and action that when is done bring a result that it is irrevocable and base your conclusions on those facts and not words of politicians. Russians did not went to help syria out of love of righteousness, they went into syria because of there national interest, same as the rest who started this war in ME did and that is oil and energy control.

            By the way I just check out and my car is buried in snow, as I said watch and learn and then you see who is assuming and who understand, what is happening. No need to continue this any farther as I am not here to convince any one or change their believes and their faith. All needed to be said is been said.

          • Cldntgiveash1t.

            They only things Russia has ever become trustworthy at doing is supplying weapons without due diligence to dictators and sowing mayhem via people from third world countries indoctrinated to what they want them to think.Part of their take over strategies entail installing “freedom fighters” as goverments who then proceed to break down a society at every level , bleed the fiscus dry to the detriment of the common man on the street and generally violate every accepted democratic norm so it can extract resources with the connivance of It’s proteges.Russia trustworthy ?.That’s a joke , if al Bashir does triumph make no mistake Russia will want ten times more back than what this campaign is costing them.

          HTS is surrounded if Turkey is not no longer allowing US/Saudi/Gulf State supplied weapons into Idlib.

          HTS land grab may be first and foremost a ‘ grab for military supplies’.

      • You can call me Al

        No sorry, but it is the other way around; the Turkish backed vermin are now getting battered by HTS.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          k one of this days maybe all of us must understand the ABC of this situation and stop listening to the various names that UK/US is coming with so not even the terrorist as they are called dont know any longer their own names let alone what organization they belong to.

          each of this mercenary armies is been organized and send to syria by nato and allies israel. All of them belong to the same religion as the saudis and the turks. Before they was one army with many leaders united then they broke apart from each other especially after the russians in their master plan instead of leaving the SAA to eliminate them send them all where the plan and agreements fall under turks jurisdiction that be afrin and idlip.

          Now they are fighting for territories and whose the leader. In both areas I mention already the turkish lira is the coin in the streets and in schools where are open is turkish teaching and rapid change of demographics. Same thing they did in africa in many areas as well trying to establish in Yemen. So disagree all you want.

          Before the russians started this shit of alleged peace deals many of our people also went and fight at the side of Assad and we have daily reports then as well as now from the syrians who ended with no choice in Greece and wanted to go back home and fight and we arrange this for them. So allow me to know what I know and I demand from none to believe or change their mind as to who is who and what is what.

          Walk in peace.

          • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

            majority of ISIS fighters were saudi prisoners released for murder rape etc. they were given release to join ISIS. Then when they took control of Syrian passport printers building, they started flooding the west with Syrian passports as ‘refugees’

          • You can call me Al

            Interesting stuff thanks.

    • FlorianGeyer

      It was important for the Russians to destroy the Al Zinki weapons and ammo stores before HTS got to them .

  • John Whitehot

    “HTS’ news network, Iba’a, said that the radical group responded to the Russian airstrikes by shelling positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA)”

    That is because ragheaded scum wants to appear as a military force that has some power on the field, instead as the mass of goatfuckers they are.

    • FlorianGeyer

      And HTS even abuse dead goats now as the live ones reject HTS.

  • Davki

    What kind of language is that? “Rains hell”… sounds like an evangelical hate-preacher. So SF sees this now as a religious war? I suppose the Russians are using ‘orthodox bombs’? If not for inciting religious hatred, SF should censored for puerilism. (‘Censored in the sense of ‘criticized’, not kept from writing).

    This time around like it or not Trump did a good move.What ever Turkey takes over from USA is to the benefits of NATO nothing changes.All the terrorist in Idlib are Erdogan group this same terrorist were use by USA Nato by supplied with drones to attack Russian bases and Syrian forces.If Russian bases are attack no notification but if Syrian and allies are attack Last second notification and no response from Russians.Russian defence shields always shut down to avoid automatic response.This nuclear confrontation avoidance is a nonsense statements.If any nuclear state which is under USA NATO oppression response by attacking warship or military bases then the whole world will react and Nato will dissolved itself out of fear of their frontline countries destruction moving back to last African countries status.France,Germany, Brittan are in first firing line with obstacle puppet bordering countries.Nato soldiers doesn’t have wife’s or girlfriends so their appreciate going around the globe for waging wars for rapping looting anger economic stability through looting for their countries.WW1 and WW2 is over accusation war is currently wage.Nuclear weapons were tested in Yogoslawia, Libya and Irag.Moab and nuclear in Afganistan.Atomic in puppet Japan.Chemical weapons in Syria.

    Russia seized the opportunity to take out some terrorists that were caught in the open….the rats left their holes so now they have the cat waiting for them…..good job there but as xoli xoli said drones should have played a major role here…vast areas that need surveillance and aircrafts should be flying 24/7 seeking targets of opportunity…..

      if the russians knew who bring the chemical attacks, raw material in idlip and been able to follow and report everything, then they know exactly where the scam of the earth are, but been the pets of turkey make them none targets in order to please their partners, who nourish them.

        well i have great respect for Russia’s diplomacy. look at the situation between Turkey and NAto that it created. sold them s-400 missiles a huge contract. …and know?Kurds are trying to be allies with Russia after US sold them to Turkey ….twice…..They turned the war around in Syria and now they are the only player there…..

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          wait and see the results of this policies first and then see if you still have respect for the diplomacy of the russians because as I see it they are over their head and nothing comes as they planned it.

          In syria turkey did not go the way russians think it go and soon it be very apparent not the the russians they already know that and now they do the best they can to salvage.

          Considering the turkish policies in ukraine as well balkan area are in direct collision with what the russians want to happen I wonder how can they manage to be allies with turks in syria and enemies in the balkan area unless they plan to sell for a second time the serbs. The writing on the wall is very clear if you dont focus on what the russians did for syria when thy step in and saved the day for them, but what also followed this partnership and what is happening on the ground of syria.

          Maybe I am wrong but I dont think so. Only people that are followers of one or the other fail to see this and judge based on personal like and dislike in short emotionally.

            game me a lot to think about…food for the mind…..you only have to consider that the Sultan is a complete psychopath doing business with him isnt easy. everyone knows that he wants to expand Turkish lands to SYria and then to destroy the Kurds….its still not clear what he will accomplish there.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            no is not clear yet what he accomplish but is crystal clear what he want to accomplish using both UK/US and Russians, for its own end. He maybe a psychopath that I dont know but he is playing all ends very well for his own benefit and his country.

    The air raids targeted Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) forces fighting against Turkish-backed Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement over the last few days.According to the Amnesty International, the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement, along with the 16th Division, the Levant Front, Ahrar al-Sham, and the al-Nusra Front, were involved in abduction and torture of journalists and humanitarian workers in rebel-held Aleppo during 2014 and 2015. Nour al-Din al-Zenki, along with the Abu Amara Brigades, has been accused of executing people by throwing them down buildings when they still controlled Aleppo. Does Russia support the Turkey’s proxies that made so many crimes?

    Well done Russia, That’s the way to do it.

    Idlib must not be any safe heaven for terrorists. Without any Syria-Russia-Hezbolah-Iran offensive in this area, any attack or counter attack is just senseless. The terrorists in Idlib will attack over and over again independently of any fool Russia-Turkey agreement.
