Support SouthFront

On February 28 morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) advanced further in the northern part of the al-Ghab Plain in the northwestern Hama countryside.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the army secured the towns of Mansoura, al-Ziyara, Tell Wasil, Khirbet al-Naqus, and Zeyzoun following heavy clashes with al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its Turkish-backed allies.

A day earlier, the SAA cleared the entire southern part of the al-Ghab Plain. The army had imposed fire control of the region from the nearby Shashabo Mountain in the southern Idlib countryside.

The army’s next targets are the towns of Kansafra, al-Bara and Baluon, where 33 Turkish service members were killed in Syrian airstrikes a day earlier.

The SAA will not likely advance further in the al-Ghab Plain today. The army is now making preparations to recapture the city of Saraqib in southern Idlib, according to several pro-government sources.

Forward not Froward but excellent news, hopefully they will cut the M4 soon.


If the Allies pause for a few hours, they can get the US head-chopping, heart-eating rapers and slavers looking over both shoulders.


Before they lose their heads, that is.


Another surrounding trick. :D

With idiots you always can do the same things, ha ha ha.


Looks like the Allies have called the Sultana’s bluff. Good.

Now SAA should take idlib city and cut Turkey supply roads. SAA should also have enough military hardware and troops the continue pushing the al-Ghab Plain the same time. This will force militance spread its resources. The same time SAA should hit hard Turkey military till they pool out. Stopping advances and talking is the worst case scenario.


Just goes to prove how massively overblown Turkey’s claims to inflicting ‘heavy casualties’ on the SAA is. The SAA does not have endless manpower to throw at the front-lines and yet they keep winning.


when will Israeli fprces actively join the conflict by creating a southern front?
