On December 20, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) captured the villages of Musheirifat Abu Dali and Tall al-Maqta in the southern Idlib countryside according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.

The SAA is now deployed only within 2km south of the strategic village of Abu Dali, that was captured by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies on October 8. The strategic village is considered a key position to many strongholds of HTS in the region between the southern Idlib countryside and the southwestern Aleppo countryside. The town of Abu Duhur, the target of the current SAA military operation in the area, is one of them.

The HTS-linked news agency Iba’a reported that HTS fighters repelled an attack by the SAA and the NDF on their positions in the villages of Ramla and Sayyalah southwest of Khanasir town in the southwestern Aleppo countryside.

HTS fighters captured seven soldiers, and an officer of the SAA during the clashes in Ramla and Sayyalah, according to Iba’a.

Several Syrian pro-government news outlets and activists reported that the Tigers Forces are only few hours away from launching their long awaited wide-scale military operation against HTS. However, these claims have not been confirmed, and it’s still unknown if the Tiger Forces are set to attack in the northern Hama countryside or in the southwestern Aleppo countryside.

    American influence takes last breaths in the world because the biggest market the Middle East have shown interest in the Russia’s and China’s weapons due to low cost and better quality. Second America is a big threat in the world.
    America cannot dominate the world because they support terrorists.

    • Colin Oskapy

      It is in the criminal nature of the USA to support dirty scum such as ISIS, SDF, and HTS.

      • Rob

        Of course.

      • Rob

        And Israel

        • Cheryl Brandon

          off course.

      • Cheryl Brandon

    • Vidura

    Southfront is a bit lacking with the news on Ukraine.

    RFERL reports a “massive increase” in violation of the cease fire since 18 december. It also says that Russia withdrew from the Joint Center for Coordination and Control (JCCC) in an effort – according to Kiev – to pressure Ukraine to talk with the DPR/LPR.

    • Thegr8rambino

      i saw an article about it here today

    • You can call me Al

      mmmm this is about Syria, they are different Countries.

  • Jim Prendergast

    HTS is clearly preparing to negotiate surrender. Perhaps they want a bus to al-Tanf.

  • Thegr8rambino

    OH SHIT!!!! with tigers here now, HTS should either surrender or be horrifically murdered!!! LOL!!!

    • Mountains

      Lmao that is cute… YOU HAVE BEEN saying this for how long now? 7 long years……….. SAA and the entities fighting the rebels are losing credibility by now

      • Gregory Louis

        The rebels are losing on all fronts…what frontline are the SAA being pushed back by the Rebels? Hmm…none exactly -.-

        • Mountains

          Which fronts? ISIS are not the rebels whom themselves have been replaced by SDF and US. Not sure if that is good thing for SAA and I would say perhaps even worse then ISIS.

          The Rebels have manpower and weaponry to go on for years and dig deep.

          • Gregory Louis

            No the rebels don’t they’ve lost this war many are going to reconcile maybe different groups will keep fighting like HTS but overall their situation is hopeless indeed maybe they’ll pull and ISIS and do gurellia warfare which is their only option left which is their worst case scenario facing Hezzbolla,Iran,Russia and the SAA and the US isn’t supporting them they lost face and value after Aleppo and lost too much manpower and equipment in North. Hama and Southwestern Aleppo in there Banzai charge attacks

          • Mountains

            But that is what you wish for but still dosen’t mean that it’s necessarily true or reality. If they wanted to reconcile they would have done it for long time ago.

            This meat grinder will keep grinding mark my words on this. They have manpower and willing to go all out. Their will to keep fighting is underrated. but if they wanted to reconcile they would have done it for long time ago

          • Gregory Louis

            Omfg….all the settlements and hundreds that have reconciled with the SAA in the past like the QSF? This war I’ll give it another year given how fast the SAA are advancing and if there’s any setbacks they’ll force the rebels to reconcile or die what ever they perfer the Rebels in the Eastern Ghouta pocket fought each other cause HTS wouldn’t allow Jaish-Al-islam to leave with their forces to Idlib there are those who know from a military standpoint that there’s no point in holding those pockets if Idlib and Sothwestern Aleppo collapse but HTS is on drugs so yeah I never said this war would end fast it will take time

      • Thegr8rambino

        lmao in which of ur dreams was this?

      • Don’t read butthurt replies

        You sound like terrorist loving coc# sucker.

  • Rob

    Russia will build the Syria’s first nuclear power plant VVER 1200 PWR 1100 megawatts in Latakia which will be completed in 2025.

    All military hardware, fighter jets and commercial jets will be overhauled locally in Syria.

  • Rob

    New residential blocks, electricity generation plants and oil and gas refineries and steel mills will be constructed on priority basis to strengthen Syrian economy.

    • §âm

      That’s IF the local corrupt “whales” don’t steal the folks money.
      Syrian economy is burdened by not only war and destruction but by severe case of corruption as well… economic revival needs the removal of the “whales” who swallow everything

    • Mountains

      Economy? This war will last for ages to come. lets put that topic aside for now

      • Gregory Louis

        No it won’t If you don’t understand that the SDF and SAA are unstoppable right now there is no one else left to challenge them the Rebels lost the war after Aleppo and ISIS is in the middle of the desert slowly dying away….if the rebels don’t reconcile they’ll lose everything they where fighting for

        • Mountains

          Reconcile? I don’t think so. This has gone for 7 years already and it has reached point of no return.

          SDF is not an ally of SAA because they are an entirely different entity with different goals. The Rebels have lost Aleppo and nothing much of significiant after that. It’s pretty much status quo.

          They have manpower and weaponry to go on for years to come. This will become a meat grinder and also alot of foreign entities will keep streaming there keeping things alive

          • Joe

            No I don’t think so that it will last for years as you wish so much .

            Once the few pockets are eliminated and between SDF and SAA supported by Iran, Russia, Turkey, Hez etc , SDF’s ONLY way yo survive is to agree that Assad’s conditions.

            US has no chance and it is understood that no country or leader worth their salt will allow another race to create and steal their country especially when Assad’s forces are winning overwhelmingly.

            Even if Russia stands aside, Iran will spearhead and even go to war with US over it.
            That is a certainty.

            Note the last time when US sailors were taken prisoners and US planes wanted to intervene onshore missiles batteries were locked on to US carriers to sink it

            So when Iran’s top general warned US to get out , he meant it. SDF and US forces in there are no contest once Iran gets serious

            Anyway it is my opinion that anyone harbouring the idea of splitting Syria the way US thinks it can do are but foolish ostriches having their heads in hot sand

            It’s jus plainly militarily unattainable nor sustainable.

            Kurds will join Syria as Syrians
            US will leave with firing a single shot.

            As to your take war will continue for years are just figments of your imagination.

            Once Syria is secured , how are the rebels going to base as well as get supplied?
            Impossible

          • Mountains

            thought i was reading cinderella story all over again

          • Joe

            Well dispute ..

            I am sure you can’t

            What has the SDF has that can challenge SAA forces?

            Iraq case was not Cinderella and now there is a riot there because the Kurds ran out of money. Did US coalition come to help? No ..
            Out to dry and have to beg for money from Baghdad

            Kurds knew they could fight ISIS but NOT IRANIAN backed forces .

            Cinderella?

          • Mountains

            How do you want me to take you serious when you are saying Iran is willing to go to war with the US. BTW they are not withdrawing from Northern syria and they have made this clear again and again. They didn’t had any interest in Iraq but Syria is different for them.

            On the other hand. The Rebels have enough manpower and weaponry to continue several years from now.

            Idlib could take alone 4-5 years add that with the other locations it could easily take 7-10 years from now.

            The Rebels performance is solid compared to ISIS who had poor location due to terrain being open and desert. The Rebels where fighting in Aleppo for 5 years and that is Aleppo alone. I believe they could do the same in Idlib and it’s surrounding areas which is basically forests and good locations for them to fight in for more years.

          • Joe

            We have to differ in our opinion that Assad’s forces can allow a hostile foreign power to take the country when it is well known SDF including the US forces in Syria is no match to Assad’s forces.

            Iran and even Iraq forces are easily deployed even if Assad has not enough men to take on SDF which is not true.

            SAA can take one even alone not to say SAA has allies.

            So far SDF have been fighting ISIS a no brainier but against Iran? Get your head examined.

            Stick to the established facts as I posted .
            You just post figments of your imagination about how strong SFD is etc. Show the facts… I used Iraq fiasco, you have any?

            I quoted iran’s top general what you quote? Nothing.

            Tell us how can SDF can face ASSAD’s forces ? Especially SDF can be surrounded by Turkey and ASSAD’s forces

            I am all ears

          • Joe

            Btw, Idlib will take 7 to 20 years?

            Now I know you know nuts about Syrian war and how leaders think

          • Gregory Louis

            Wtf…I never said the SDF and SAA are allies I just said their the two biggest winners of this war the Rebels have lost the war it’s over they only have Idlib which is always having it’s own civil war and they lost too much in Aleppo…..saying they haven’t lost is insanity there’s no military action that can change their situation for the better Russia and Syria are just going to bomb them to hell with their airpower and that’s that…the Tiger Forces, Republican Guard, 4th Armored, Hezzbolla, and the 5th Assault corp can finish the job up nicely

          • Mountains

            You make it sound like a walk in the park. We will see how long it will take. Just sit down and watch. And get real time war experience

          • Gregory Louis

            You seem to think you know more about war then me go ahead explain how the rebels can lengthen this war with no air support, No US tax dollar support for weapons and ammo for their TOW’s and being completely incompetent on all fronts and being surrounded slowly. Their Defenses last as long as the Syrian Air Force and the RuAF don’t find their locations I expect their defenses to slowly crumble as the SAA finishes off the Beit Jinn pocket and sends more elite men to Idlib and Hama

      • You can call me Al

        Are you some dumb Yank or a troll ?

      • Rob

        The main war finished. Now just small pockets left. These pockets will be cleared with in one month.

        Then Trump army will be removed from Syria that have entered in Syria through their own terrorists teams.

  • Cheryl Brandon
