Syrian Army Advances Further Towards Al-Eis, Makes More Gains

Donate

Late on February 7, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) advanced further towards its next main target, the town of al-Eis, in the southwestern Aleppo countryside.

The army’s elite 25th Special Forces Division captured the towns of Karrathin, al-Dahiriyah and al-Thuriyah as well as the Ebla University complex on the administrative border between southeast Idlib and southwest Aleppo.

The SAA began advancing towards al-Eis a few hours ago. The army’s Republican Guard and Lebanon’s Hezbollah reached the town’s northern outskirt after capturing Zaytan and Birnah. The 25th Special Forces Division captured Maharim, Ijaz, Khawari, Tall al-Nabariz, Rasm al-Ward, Abbad, Huwayyir al-Eis and Makhalah to the west of the town.

The SAA is not facing any real resistance from al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) or its Turkish-backed allies. Initial information suggests that most of the groups’ militants had run away from the region.

The army will likely besiege al-Eis in the upcoming few days, if not hours. Once the town is liberated, the troops will move to secure the M5 highway.

    excellente news and ebla university complexe is very nice and intact!! look google map!!

    • Vitex

      Yeah, the stories about Assad deliberately bombing civilian infrastructure are nonsense – he is planning on being President after the war, so he avoids civilian casualties wherever possible. The SAA have in places gone to heroic lengths to avoid civilian losses

      • Gary Sellars

        The SAA have in places gone to heroic lengths to avoid civilian losses…

        … but the servile Western MSM will NEVER admit this as it runs counter to our establishments preferred narratives.

    Tigers and 4th will shake hands at ICARDA farms M5 highway soon, then Idlib city , Jisr al Shoghour and many more terrorist will be surrounded after that. Turks take great risk installn units at Taftanaz due large amount of airstrikes in that section. More and more of their posts are emergin in Idlibstan, if this continues lot of their units will be surrounded, isolated and can be easy neutralized in case of hostilities, or does sultan think every post is a Trojan horse inside Suria?

    • gustavo

      I believe that is Erdogan’s idea….Troyan horsen inside Syria to justify a full NATO-USA-Israel attack to Syria.

      • John Brown

        No way. Wrong!
        If Erdogan goes against Russia it will give Israel the opportunity to implement the Yinon plan on Turkey, which they tried to do just over 4 years ago but Putin saved Erdogan and his families etc lives. Erdogan and all his relatives and friends will be murdered by Mossad death squads, Turkey will be turned into one big Raqqa, bombed to bits and then broken up, with Israel getting Western Turkey along the Med, the Kurds will get central southern Turkey, Armenians Eastern Turkey, half the Turkish population will be killed and the rest will be forced to flee to Germany. Turkey as a state and people will cease to exist forever, and Erdogan would go down in history as the worst Turkish leader in history.

        • Redadmiral

          And of course Gulen would be brought back to preside over this. Not going to happen

      • Rhodium 10

        Erdogan only wants to save his face…its is to pick up some SDF areas in north-east and west Syria…and part of Idlib and Aleppo…the question is that Syria and Russia cannot allow that foreign forces occupy Syrian land without the approval of the legitime Goverment of Syria!..otherwise it means to allow foreign forces to invade Syria!

    • Toni Liu

      Hah that post can be used as hostage when the war against turkey happened

  • BMWA1

    Where wither and Whence are Erdogan’s Rescue Rangers I wonder?

  • James Kira

    saa in red looks like a dreaded plague. And not liberation.

    Liberation means Green wiping out red, never the other way around.

    • Black Waters

      So you re using colors to determinate how is good or bad? Jesus christ give me a break, how old are you?

      The colors here are the closest to the RGB standard to make visualization of different zones possible without intersection of pitch black from names of avenues/name of towns etc.

      Once more you come here speaking from ignorance or you literally have the intellect of an infant?

      • James Kira

        To me saa is a plague no different than zionism, so I agree its not the color in itself but those who choose to take up the color.

        It doesnt matter if americunt takes up red white or blue, it ruins the color. Just like commies ruin the color of red, you commies.

      • Toni Liu

        He crazy mofo that are support isis thing, look all his rambling through some SF post about syria lately, seems after this terrorist lost many of their territory, their supporter lose their mind too like him

    • Azriel Herskowitz

      So true. When I see the red flags all I can think about is the enslavement of the Syrian people under the butcher himself.

      • EveryoneIsBiased

        Are you Israelis now into having the liberation off Jihadis and their welfare at heart?
        Opposed to a truly moderate (in terms of middle eastern standards) and secular strong man, you could have made good deals on a win win basis with. Had you, NATO and Sunni Whahhabi countries not invaded his country and instigated the most genocidal war of this century.

        I seriously want to know, i am not like some rabid Anti-Zionist or Anti-Muslim person like some here, i want to see the good and bad on all sides.

        IMO your leadership made the totally wrong choices with Syria, and everyone by now knows who disatrously stupid the decision by your leadership was nearly 2 decades ago when you advocated the Iraq war.

        And okay, everyone makes mistakes, but 2 decades, and no revising? Is there no turning back? Or is the political and military decision making process at fault? Or culturally? Why on earth do you support the most genocidal and fascistic Islamist that exists on earth, while you fight Islamists in Gaza?

        This was always the error of the US, who supported them indirectly (Since the deal with Saudis) and later directly (Mujahedeen against Soviets and Russia later).
        But normally, your military and intelligence services makes wise, and realistic decisions, like with Soleimani. It was your countries goal to get his head all along.

        But when the Donald boasted about it, you cleverly let him take all the flak, even militarily.
        Why on gods earth do you then, on the strategic level, while your military+intelligence is competent and wise, accept politicians who fuck everything up, and push exactly the wrong policys strategically?

        Without those politicians ever learning from their own faults. Faults that have harmed you beloved country massivly, in strengenthing Iran by killing Hussein?
        Patriotism is not blindly following your leader, it is the opposite. It is doing the very best for the welfare of your country, even if it means opposing the mainstream view or political agendas.
        Everything else, is betrayl of those country and ones people.

        • Gary Sellars

          Well said, but don’t expect a sensible answer from a racist ethnic-supremacist like this Zio-troll. Talmud-following troglodytes like this shekel-grubber don’t have any respect for lowly goyims of any colour or creed – his kind thinks we are all animals in human form, created solely to serve the Chosen people. Any actions that weaken non-jews and increase Jewish power and wealth is justified by their religion, indeed they consider it the natural course of events, and they are as devoid on any feelings of shame or guilt as a man would be while ridding his home of a pest infestation.

          • EveryoneIsBiased

            Sadly you are right, they never respond.
            But it does not matter. It still fucks their brain. At least uncosciuosly.
            ;)

      • Ricky Miller

        A myth, created by corporate media and national security talking heads. President Assad was and is considered a mild autocrat. Most of these Arab leaders have to be in order to maintain law and order and give secular minded people the chance to breathe. Look at Egypt, one election=muslim brotherhood. Most Syrians prefer the government, not that that governance is ideal but it works. In order to violate Syria’s territory, interfere with the course of it’s history and society and stoop to giving weapons to jihadi madmen the powers that be HAD to vilify Bashar al-Assad to rationalize to people all the legal violations and underhanded power moves they were making to overthrow his government.

        • Lazy Gamer

          Let the Syrians after the war decide on Assad’s fate. It is impossible to be 100%correct in war nor do i discount the probability of some of the atrocities. But as the leader, as anywhere else, it is his responsibility and burden whether rightfully or wrongly.

          • Ricky Miller

            No. A country is more than one man. Syria, it’s senior tribal leadership and her armed forces decided as a group to fight back and not give up to either internal or external enemies. And I think they’ve already decided. It would be impossible for Syria to achieve what she has in this war, help from Russia and Iran accounted for, without millions of Syrians in the major cities remaining loyal to the government and to the office of the president.

Lebanon’s luck was that we were stopped by a U.N ceasefire which we didn’t even want, but was forced to take. They better don’t push their luck and make us bomb Lebanon again using our full capabilities, trust me the damage on their side would be alot worse than us.

      Blah blah blah is exactly what I think about your comment.

      • jorge

        Isn’t mine, it’s of all the sons of a bi*ch over years and years. My real comment, at the same time (years and years) was always the same: The syrians will recover every inch of their country, and the Russians will help them on doing that.

  • Joe Doe

    SAA better makes plans to fight Turkey. Russia most likely will stay idle and do nothing helping SAA with more military hardware such as S-30, MIG-30, S-400 or attack helicopters. This is what SAA needs to fight Turkey

    • Tim Williams

      Turkey troops have no motivation to fight in Syria … 5,000 + anti tank missiles will open the Turk tanks up like a can of tuna

      • gustavo

        Wrong, Turkey has one of the better NATO forces and can defeat Syria with just small travels. Only Russia has the capability to stop Turkey-Syria-NATO-Israel all together.

        • Aaron Driver

          Wrong, the Syrians who will die for their country will win… The Turkish soldiers do not have the same mentality as ISIS so they will not die for the Syrian cause, because soldiers want to go home, extremist dont, they are willing to die.

Turkey as a state and people will cease to exist forever, and Erdogan would go down in history as the worst Turkish leader in history.
        Erdogan is buying time until the S-400s and the pipelines from Russia are all operational, as Turkey is vulnerable to economic sanctions and air attack until then.

  • ColinNZ

    Latest information from Y.N.M.S (@ynms79797979) is that all terrorists in Al-Issa, Tal Hadya, Zorba, and Burqum appear to have withdrawn towards the western countryside of Aleppo, thus the entire Damascus-Aleppo Road is now secure. If confirmed, this is a major strategic success for SAA & allies.

    • Tim Williams

      run or die

      • Gary Sellars

        run AND die (a little later)

      At this rate they’ll run out of places to withdraw to

    • FlorianGeyer

      I hope that the US Coalition of Terror terror proxies are being harried as they flee.
      Could the exodus of the terror gangs be a planned ‘rout’ in order to create an illusion of chaos whilst they regroup in front of Turkish forces.

      The terror gangs supported by Turkish artillery tactic worked in the Kurdish zone .

      • ColinNZ

        They may well think that Turkey will protect them, but when it comes to the crunch Turkey will back down …. Erdoghan is typical NATO, he will try to threaten & bluff but will never battle an adversary who can and will fight back and inflict serious casualties.

    it seems Turkey has designated IDLIB CITY as the rats ALAMO … TURKEY is pouring massive amount of material into the city today … estimates range from a convoy of 100 trucks to over 300 loaded full of ammo for the rats … Russian drones know exactly where it is stored … I see a massive explosion that will be felt all the way in ANKARA soon …

  • Tim Williams
  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    A perceived collapse may just turn out to be a tactical retreat to wait for massive reinforcements that are on the way.
    330 Turkish vehicles in one convoy, 70 tanks as well as heaps of artillery, 5 convoys in all arriving today and 2 big ones yesterday which are already deploying near the fighting.
    On top of that we have Turkish aircraft flying patrols over the Syrian/Turkish border, this is getting even worse than I thought it would, if the Russians don’t protect the SAA the SAA is about to be annihilated.
    What a colossal stuff up.

    • Kananda

      Turkey will ot attack. Such attack would caus lose their interests in Lybia. And there the can lose 10-50x more then in Sy.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        Today is the first day over the last 4 days that the Turks haven’t been attacking the SAA, and I think that’s only because the SAA are taking it very easily today, no Russian or Syrian air activity at all over Idlib today at all, what do you think that means, I know what it means, something really bad.

        • PZIVJ

          Erdogan is just drawing a line in the sand to make the Jihadist happy, in other words “do not approach Idlib city”. M5 will be taken by the SAA, Then maybe a rest or some action in the south.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            Hopefully they liberate the south before they’re unable to, thousands of Turkish tanks and artillery will make it impossible once they’re deployed.
            Erdogan’s bluffed only once during the past 2 years and that was with NATO just recently, but I don’t think he’s bluffing at all now, he has NATO to fall back on if things go south with Russia, he hasn’t burnt any bridges with them he can’t mend, so I’m not so sure the Russian’s will be able to contain him even if they want to.

          • PZIVJ

            Turkish media likes to lie a lot, just to keep the rats happy. :/

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            And don’t forget all those innocent civilians that are about to be slaughtered in the process, will you enjoy watching that too, the Turks just showed us in Al Hasakah how well they treat the civilian population, Amnesty International chalked up 12 verified war crimes in only the first week of fighting.
            You forgot the Kurds, they said they’d help Assad if ever the Turks invaded, they’ll be joining the party too.
