While the Syrian Tiger Forces and their allies are preparing for a final push towards the ISIS-held town of al-Bukamal, important developments are also taking place in the area west of the Ithriyah-Khanaser road.

Since October, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) have been conducting a military operation in the  area against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in order to expand the buffer zone near the Ithriyah-Khanaser part of the Ithriyah-Aleppo highway and to shorten the frontline in northeastern Hama.

Some pro-government sources even speculate that the SAA and the NDF may seek to reach the Abu Duhur Military Airbase, but this would take a large-scale advance, which would require deployment of additional reinforcements.

Recently, government forces have liberated the villages of Abu Ghar, Sarha Janubi, Mushayrifah, Husaywat, Jundya and Rasm Kahal and the hill of Sawan. The SAA and the NDF also entered Sarha Shamali where intense fighting was reported between government troops and terrorists.

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorists responded by attacking SAA positions north of al-Maqarayh and capturing Umm Turaykiyah and Al-Balil after repelling a government attack on Musharifah.

According to pro-opposition sources, the fighting is ongoing amid constant Russian airstrikes on terrorist weapons depots and convoys. However, the intensity of the strikes is relatively low.

As long as the town of al-Bukamal in eastern Syria is not liberated, the Syrian military cannot deploy the manpower and military equipment to the northeastern Hama frontline, which would allow them to crush the HTS defenses there and to reach the Abu Duhur Military Airbase. However, this moment may be closer than some HTS supporters would like to believe.

      You might focus at the positive results as well if its allowed and You dont get jailed, tortured and killed for it.

      Fx 450.000 came out from Eufrat Wrats alive, Only 1800 civlians died. Thats 0,4%. Insted we see here people are focussing at buildings destroyed there.

      Is this war not about people – people alive – felling well and safe. People dont see Raqqa has been destructed AFTER CIVILIANS WASNT THERE.

      So thats why so many SDF forces are are not dead for nothing. Seemes too many here blame SDF`s & Co for not being killed as their armies prefare. People in the SDF possitions are not spendables.

      They are also blamed for running away, but that doesnt bother criticts here even it in most other armies the Nr one for an army is, that the soldiers are alive and can fight again. SDF`s retreat and come back.

      And there are estimates. The latest one is by Russians. The say they have killed 45.000 enemies and 3.000 of them were russians.

      • NobodysaysBOO

        nonsense.

        • Jens Holm

          Go somewhere else and take all Your killers with You. We then will arm all of you, so You can kill each other and the 8-10 normal and peacefull refugees of Syria can come home as well at the 2 millions in Iraq.

            go to hell .

        I would suggest the opposite, fight ISIS first and then HTS, meaning there are too many government offensives in Idlib/Hama before all ISIS territory is retaken. The race with SDF for ISIS territory is also more of a rush than any time constraints near Idlib.

        Fuck off Jens We know who u work for, your skekels dont count here b#tch

    Eight countries taking part in a joint military drill in Israel
    http://www.voltairenet.org/article198643.html

    The military forces of the Air Forces of Germany, the United States, France, Greece, India, Italy and Poland and an eighth state that has not been identified, are participating for 11 days in Blue Flag, an Israeli military drill.

    Each participant arrived with its planes and more than a thousand soldiers are involved in this simulation. 34 States have sent observers and military attachés.

    The drills will focus on two things: anti-air defense and how to escape it. Israel intends to test some of its new defensive and offensive weapons.
