Six Syrian Officers, Soldiers Killed In ‘Suicidal Raid’ By HTS’ Uzbek Terrorists In Greater Idlib

On August 6 morning, two officers and four soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were killed and six other service members were wounded when their post in Hantutin the southern Idlib countryside came under attack.

A source in the SAA told SouthFront that five terrorists targeted the post with an anti-tank guided missile before infiltrating its defenses as a part of an “Inghimasi attack” [suicidal raid]. The terrorists then clashed with the personnel who were manning the post.

All five terrorists were killed by SAA, according to the source. The bodies of at least three of them are now in the hands of the army.

The raid was reportedly carried out by Uzbek terrorists of Katibat al Tawhid wal Jihad, a unit of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). The terrorist group is the de-facto ruler of the northwestern region of Greater Idlib.

HTS’ Uzbek terrorists carried out a similar “Inghimasi attack” on April 21. Back then, two soldiers of the SAA were killed and another was wounded.

Hantutin raid was the most recent in a series of violations of the ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib, which was brokered Russia and Turkey last year. These violations will likely go unpunished. The SAA and its allies, first and foremost the Russian Aerospace Forces, may respond in the upcoming few days.

its only a matter of time til idlib will be wrecked like mosul was


time to kill guppu tork now!


sooner or later you will have russia burst into anger into idlib and wreck these terrorists simply because russia has put way to much into syria to allow some turkish terrorists to put it all into danger and they will pretty much raid idlib province hourly making sure that turkey is full on pressured but the russians obviously also play a game of patience they seek the entire front to break not just idlib occupation and for that they have to take down turkey from its high horse called nato which russia actively tries to do specially the wildfires helped them alot in that aspect with many turks now calling for an official alliance with russia instead of nato these days and the incompetence of turkish officials has become a true legitimacy issue for turkey with the opposition constantly becoming more powerful and turkey splintering into dozens if not 100 of different groups because of akp denial of large opposition groupings turkey has become more insecure politically than it was in the last century

Many Syrians have died that didn’t need to,all because of a ceasefire that isn’t really there,it will carry on until those bastards are dealt with,otherwise expect more news like this.

Trap is still Gay and 100% proud

Yawn! Keep taking whilst the poor soldiers keep dying… 18D chess!

US & EU are Zion slaves

Okay, some of you might understand why yanquis left Afghanistan.
To grow terrorists in Afghanistan, and let them attack central Asian countries, China, Iran, and Russia.


These foreign fighter Uzbeck terrorists don’t have a very bright future. They are international terrorists trapped in Idlib, and their only future options are either battlefield death, or mercenary servitude to the Turkish state, for as long as they are deemed useful. Looks like they chose the suicidal battlefield attack option.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
