As a large Turkish military convoy is moving to rescue militants in Khan Shaykhun, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and it allies launched a push to capture a chunk of the M5 highway north of the militant stronghold. Governemnt troops are aiming to cut off the road and prevent the Turkish military from entering the town and setting up an ‘observation post’ there.

According to pro-government sources, the SAA is currentlly storming the northern entrance to Khan Shaykhun. In particular, the SAA seeks to capture the Nimr Hill (Tell Nimr). If it’s able to do this, the Syrian military will get control of the road in the area.

    Syrian and Russian strategy will soon fail because they have not establish no fly zone over Syria.

      Since you are the expert and know more about fighting a vicious enemy…..you should lead the battle against the terrorists and their backers.

        Rob is certainly sometimes a split personality, but what he said is true. SF reported this even, that Russia coordinates all airstrikes with Turkey but also with NATO in general.
        It was nescessary when the SAA liberated the south and east because of the danger of errors that could end in shooting war between Russia and NATO.
        It is a walk on a tightrope for Russia here. Not wanting to anger Erdogan, but to finally put some pressure on the Jihadists, to not risk to totally demoralize the SAA, and also have more of a stick against Turkey by pressuring Erdogans proxy force.
        Its pretty delicate.

        • You can call me Al

          You took my words right out of my mouth, I always wonder if there are 2 x Robs.

          • EveryoneIsBiased

            I always like to think Rob is a split personality, but i am sorry, i am not Rob. :)

            Even 3 or more. Both his English and comments have improved considerably over this past year….

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The warning worked the Turkeys are in a state of panic as the SAA has moved further 3-5kms north of Khan Sheikhun and also a pincer is moving east. The Turkeys have no hope in Syria and like their Saudi masters in Yemen, need to get the fuck out before worst humiliation happens.

  • russ

    The only groups that want Syria to win unconditionally are Iran, Hezbollah/Lebanon, Libya, and maybe Iraq.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths
