Syrian Army And Allies Deploy Large Reinforcements In Southern Idlib

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE: Sputnik/Mikhail Alaeddin

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Iranian-backed forces are amassing a large strike force in the southern countryside of Idlib, according to opposition sources.

On May 29, opposition sources said large reinforcements of the army and its allies arrived in the cities of Saraqib and Ma`arat al-Nu`man as well as the Zawiya Mountain.

The sources also reported an increase in reconnaissance sorties over Greater Idlib. Syrian and Russian warplanes patrol the region on a regular basis. Nevertheless, no airstrikes have been carried out so far.

The SAA’s 25th Division, previously known as the Tiger Forces, and Lebanon’s Hezbollah maintain a strong presence in Greater Idlib.

Militants’ violations of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib are increasing. In the last two days, heavy clashes broke out in the region’s southern part.

The SAA usually responds to any violation in Greater Idlib with artillery and anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs). Some drone strikes also targeted prominent militants in the region.

The deployment of additional reinforcements in Greater Idlib could be a defense measure. Nevertheless, the possibility of a new military operation in the region is high. Turkey is yet to fulfill its commitments under the March 5 agreement with Russia.

    Summer campaign in the works? Turks and Ziowahhabi Jewhadi terrorists are cozying up too much in the bits of Syria they’ve managed to entrench their invasion forces in. Iran is done with the covid1984 Fort Detrick virus crisis and after delivering humanitarian aid to Venezuela it is due time to start helping Syria clean house. NATO rats carry things worse than the black plague after all.

    • Jens Holm

      So now they fight in Venezuala too? Long frontline and many svimmers.

      I didnt know You family are rats. Normally they are not that clever.

        The Syrian interest is that Syria will be free of Islamic terrorists. Shiites or Sunnis.

            The IRGC is destroying Iran from the inside, so they might be mossad agents. LOL.

        • Jens Holm

          Yerrh. Despotic feudal Assads seemes with not even a program for the future seemes better to You. But You are the same.

          Just like WHO choosing to take care of pest and cholera, but borth should be eliminated.

        Your people are is good at fighting as they are at basketball.

        • <>

          We’re good at both, I think we will have another round in July.

          • Raptar Driver

            Funny. I served as a counselor in a Jewish summer camp for boys and teens, I was 18. We played basketball everyday. I was a god to them. That’s how bad they were not how good I was. Nice try boy. You are the weakest people I’ve ever come across. Weak in everyway and I know first hand.

          • <>

            Hey buddy, you haven’t done 1/10 of the stuff I did in the army (if you even went to the army), so don’t talk so high.

          • Raptar Driver

            No of course not I was in the air force. You see buddy, you’re just too easy. Look how quickly you got defensive and resorted to hyperbole.
            The a-typical Fake Jew defensive strategy, a mental defect. I hear your people are full of defects? I’ve got you pegged brah.

          • <>

            lol, you don’t know shit about me. I don’t need to prove anything, I’ll do it when the operations starts.

          • There are occasional tuff jews of course, but the exception doesnt disprove the rule. Most jews that reside in the West are physically and mentally soft, highly privileged and beyond reproach by virtue of their accident of birth.

          • Raptar Driver

            Yeah but I know a lot about your people and you’re all pretty much the same.

  • Free man

    As I have written here for a long time, there is no military solution for Idlib / northern Syria and eastern Syria.
    Russia should lead a political process that will safeguard the Turkish interest in northern Syria and safeguard the US interest in eastern Syria. So that the Turks and the Americans get their forces out of Syria.
    But unfortunately we are probably approaching a bloody battle in Idlib. One that might endanger Assad’s rule in other parts of Syria.

    • Jens Holm

      You might be right. But facts only shows Russia is not able to make any improvements a part for making jobs for undertakers and building condtructers.

      I sure Trump laugh and laugh. They took over Our hobby and now recycling old Russian miliary stuf in ARMORY for NO OIL. haha.

      I agree in Your reflexions about Idlib. It reminds me about the old wargame movie. There were no winners unless they paid games, where no one could win.

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      All the areas like Daraa, Quneitra, as Suwayda, southern Deir ez Zor and parts of western Aleppo would likely reignite again if open hostilities between Turkey and Syria started, and that’s a recipe for a real bloodbath, so I don’t think Assad would be stupid enough to launch an attack and risk that, I think these are just defensive measures, or perhaps just the start of a limited operation against the designated terrorist elements.

  • namulit emperor

    Those ominous ‘Russian’ jets without markings might get Syrian markings soon…

    • Sencer

      Hopefully.

    • mhtsaropinigitakis

      they are getting Libyan markings

      • namulit emperor

        Nah, the Mig29s have been given to the Syrians, as I speculated.

        • Jens Holm

          I expect they became Syrian jets. Assads has only few jets left kept flying on second class repair.

    Music to my ears is the article title.

    • Jens Holm

      ISIS might love ot too. It brings gabs among the Assads and space for their madness too.

  • Jens Holm

    I am so tired of reading “reinforcements”. Assads hardly has any. Assads and others replace the troops they havemn that the frontline soldiers get some rest and a bed for regaining and less traumatized.

    If its true there are reinforcments fir real they are not parashuted as dead people from heaven but ARRIVED FROM.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Turkey’s way too busy consolidating it’s military fortifications to bother about the M4 right now, they have very different priorities to Syria and Russia.
