Syrian government forces have liberated 180km2 from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other Turkish-backed militant groups in western Aleppo. This advance became a major blow to Idlib radicals and created conditions for further offensive operations in the region.

    Now take the M4 all the way to Latakia and clean out that southern pocket. Taking Sarmada just south of the Turkey border would also be a huge blow. It would slow Turkey’s supply to the terrorists to a trickle.

    • Barba_Papa

      Why stop at Sarmada? Drive all the way to the Bab Hawa border crossing and make it even harder for the Turks to supply their headchopper friends and their own ‘observation posts’.

      • Robert Guttierez

        I think Sarmada is as far as Syria could get before Turkey starts acting more stupid. Maybe after securing all new gains, a push towards the borders would be acceptable, but I think right now it’s too soon.

      • John

        Sarmada would cut off access to anything around there. I agree with you about going the border. But, without Sarmada, the border crossing is useless in my opinion Papa.

        • LR captain

          Hey john, i have question to ask you,
          do you think any of commentators or people who view SF site are part of the PMU, or Hezbollah SAA etc?
          In my attempts to have rational conversation, i had discord sever with MR zion, We’re tried to show him how far the Israeli top brass had their up their A$$es. By showing him how a proper IDF against Hezbollah should look like and what true of war would be. Should i collect the info and strategies from those conversations to and submit to SF as an article?

          • John

            Hi LR. My opinion about SF is it is a central area to the information war going on now, especially since the Syrian conflict went bad for those who fomented and supported the movements against the Syrian government. If you at the comment total, they are dwarfed by the actual number of visits to the articles. If you post here, you are under surveillance. It is my opinion that almost every type of intel outfit has people keeping an eye on this site and who goes here.

            That given, very few of them come out of the woodwork. Sometimes you get US types, sometimes Israeli types and very rarely Jihadists pop up, along with a sprinkling of people siding with other groups. I don’t trust any of them. Anybody removed, argumentatively, from reality is not somebody to be sharing with. I give my opinions here, in the open, anybody and everybody can know what I am thinking.

            The basic rule of the jungle is, do not threaten anybody. You can tell it straight and it may not be favored in the least but, it is respected. I wish well to you LR.

            They are not fake at all. The Turkeys are embarrassed, that is all. I always stand by my comments as I did with the Iran missile strike and now it has all been verified. There are lots of excitable kids here and prone to DENIAL and it ain’t a river in Egypt LOL

            He does that all the time!!
            Except nobody ever questions this lying son of bitch !
            Or if cornered he tries to make fun out of it and just carry on with the same propaganda and falsehood like nothing ever happened!

            He was saying that “Putin was in bed with Erdogan” hundred times already in different way .
            Do you see anybody asking him about that or him saying that he was wrong maybe?
            That will NEVER HAPPEN!

          • Carsten

            But the truth ist, that you lied about this picture. You lied to the people in this forum. That Turkey is supporing the rebells anyway is true, but not the theme.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The reality is that the Turkeys and their terrorists are pretty much hen pecked in Idlib and Aleppo and have suffered some horrendous losses. In one ambush Hezbollah and the SAA captured a whole Turkeys platoon with three senior officers who really did not put up a fight and handed over 2 M-60 and three APC. It also shows a demoralization of the Turkeys.

    Syrian Arab Army captures several Turkish military personal during hostilities in Idlib and Aleppo along with tanks and APC

    • Barba_Papa

      If you were sent into Idlib to help and protect Jihadi crazies wouldn’t you be demoralized too? The MSM can claim the Idlib headchoppers are ‘moderate rebels’, because its audience doesn’t know any better. A Turkish soldier sent into Idlib quickly gets to see these ‘moderate rebels’ for what they really are.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        One of them is a Colonel and most seem happy to surrender, Hezbollah TV has shown two Zionist upgraded M-60 “Sabra” that the Turkeys just handed over without a fight with three MRAPS.

    • Lupus

      Wow is that real? Awesome!

      • Zionism = EVIL

        These captured officers are from the 5th Armored Brigade and I saw their interview and they seemed very relieved to have surrendered and had no fight left in them. As I said earlier, Erdogan is a illiterate street thug and has totally misread the situation.

    Like many of badmouthed peaces of shit would claim here

    • quackery

      So? As long as the SAA is on the winning side, who cares? I love the fact that jihadis and Turks are getting killed. No chance of them fathering more degenerate terrorist children.

      • Z.P.

        You are probably new to this forum and don’t know much about incessant anti-Russian and anti-Putin propaganda here.

        The point is that they didn’t even give right to Russia to be junior partner to the forces that COULD NOT RESIST assault before Russia came to their help!
        Instead they were permanently badmouthing and attacking Russia and Putin.
        They have called Putin traitor and have ridiculed and denigrated Russia instead shoving gratitude !
        And by doing that they were spitting on all Russians killed in Syria and having showed
        only disdain to Russian contribution.

        • Caesar

          Well said.

          • Z.P.

            To be honest I didn’t expect even single up vote.
            I am honestly surprised !
            You have my respect.
            In all these time spent here I didn’t see many people with character and ba**s
            to state their opinion differently from the crowd.

            Majority of “opinion” is always parroting the same here (so there is not much “opinion” since they agree all the time about the same meme, mantra)
            This place is “Assad cult of personality cheering club”
            Assad is supreme being never to be questioned or else… actually nobody can be questioned or attacked except Russians.
            Anybody going even slightly in other direction will be attacked.
            Again, apart from usual enemies of Syria only Putin and Russia are permitted be attacked, smeared, ridiculed.
            When Iran is negotiating with Turks nobody ever attacks them for “being in bed with Turkey” and similar.
            They forget Russian killed pilots by Turkey and Turk terrorists and they accuse Russia of betrayal and desecration of their own hero soldiers who died in Syria!
            Like they love those Russians more than Russians themselves!
            Russia always has no merits in SAA victories even though it was Russians that even have trained their best fighters the” Tigers”.
            Not to mention that without Russian protection even now Syria would be defeated quickly

            WHY is Russia helping their liberation when in Donbass there is already 10 000 killed ethnic Russians?!?
            WHY are to Putin and Russia more precious lives of Syrians while Russians getting killed?!
            These people have no gratitude and they do not deserve Russian help .while Russian’s in Ukraine are getting killed.

          • Dawn

            Blaming Russia and Putin for “not being good enough” is official western propaganda narrative pressed already for several years.. Apart from usual trolls pushing the propaganda – also many people have fallen for this manipulation.. unfortunately..

          • Z.P.

            I know all that .
            And I am literally exalted that there is somebody else to know that as well!
            The problem is that there are not only “usual trolls pushing the propaganda…and”people have fallen for this manipulation”.
            There are also Shia Islamist who have hidden agenda in Russia starting war against Turkey and Israel for interests of Iran and Hezbollah !
            There are also neo-NAZI club who are pushing in the same direction because they hate Turks and even much more Isreal .
            They all are ready to fight to the last Russian for their own objectives.
            They represent HUGE MAJORITY on this forum when joined by gullible Westerners who fall for romantic notion of “noble fight for the freedom”(actually spreading Shia influence above all)
            The absurd is that whenever I was opposed to this anti Russian propaganda that was always pushing Russia in CONFRONTING NATO I would be labeled to be a Jew !!!

          • Caesar

            I have studied maths at the uni therefore I am rather inclined to deduce logically.
            It is not so difficult to see that without the spectacular and comprehensive help of Russia , and Putin as a decision maker, since 2015 there would be no Syria as it is today.
            Does Israel likes it?
            I do not think so.
            Same goes for Erdogan.
            Since 2+2 = 4 , therefore I would like to declare that Putin a good friend of Syria, in fact a very good one, life saver.
            I wish you a good evening.

          • Z.P.

            Thank you for existing!
            Can’t believe my eyes that I have truly intelligent person in front of me, for change.
            I have been too long in this “ZOO” with all kinds of insane people and all kinds of “experts”.
            You are more than refreshing change.

    it is time for Turks to oust Erdogan from power

    this is the time for a coup

  • Zionism = EVIL

    SAA and Hezbollah advance units close in on the Taftanaz airbase which is about to fall. 5 Turkeys killed in latest battle and 8 captured including 3 officers.

    Footage filmed on Sunday shows soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army
    (SAA) advancing towards a Turkish-controlled airfield as military vehicles reportedly belonging to the Turkish Armed Forces are spotted fleeing near Taftanaz Air Base, south of Taftanaz, Idlib province.

    Five Turkish soldiers were killed in an ambush by the SAA and Hezbollah advance units at the same airbase on early Monday.

    “It is the closest point to the airport in Taftanaz where the Turkish regime is located, as you see vehicles, monitoring and communication devices, as well as artillery that supports the militants against us
    during the past two days,” said one of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA)officers at one of the checkpoints in the town of Taoum, less than 5kilometres (3,1 miles) from Taftanaz.

  • Fine, some good news in the morning, despite of the complete shitshow and panopticum of insanity on the world stage, just to read a little piece of good news.

  • Doom Sternz

    I wonder what Turkey would do if Syria after retaking Idlib then took Hatay? Just as a cost for Turkeys invasion. Once there is no international law then its survival of the strongest and right now Russia and Syria are stronger. Same applies to Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia etc etc etc. Maybe Iran and Iraq can take a chunk of Turkey too, international law no longer exists so why not?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Turkeys military is very demoralized and totally inept as I had mentioned from get go. They are scattered in small penny packets and very vulnerable and that is why individual units are surrendering rather than commit suicide. The Hezbollah, SAA elite and Iranian units that are advancing are battle hardened, highly motivated and have local population support. Erdgan is a complete fuckwit. He had purged most of the professional officers, stacked them with politically loyal Islamists and underestimated the resolve of SAA, Iranians and Hezbollah.

      • Doom Sternz

        I think Turkey needs to be carved up. Maybe even Greece can take a chunk. Return Cyprus to the Cypriots, even give Georgia a chunk.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          In all strategic and tactical reality, the idiot Erdogan has really exposed their weak Turkeys, their economy is up the creek, their military is demoralized and incompetent and they have committed 6,000 ill-trained men for Syria against some of the most battle hardened coalition of the Axis of Resistance. From a purely military point of view, it was simply unsustainable. The Turkeys are spread thin from Syria to Libya and have massive internal problems. Another coup is a good possibility as the cost this disaster comes home to the Anatolian poor villages that supply the cannon fodder. I was just watching one of the captured Turkeys and he sounded relieved to have surrendered.

        • Bru

          Not only Constantinople (=unarmed Istanbul after the Turkish Invasion) belongs to Greece, but also most of mainland Turkey = ancient Byzantium, which the Turks (coming from Mongolia) invaded and stole.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Turkey is a fake entity and should have been carved up after WW1. The eastern part belongs to Iran and Armenia and the rest should have reverted back to Greece, Syria and Iraq. Cyprus should also be reunified under Greek control. Turkey has been a complete nuisance like the Zionist scum.

          • Doom Sternz

            Anzacs died to save Turkey, we wont repeat that mistake again.

            Oh yes you will.
            You will go into every war, even the most stupid one, US tells you to go.
            Just like UK told you to go, to get slaughtered in Turkey for nothing.. and left you stranded on that effing beach.
            So many young Australians died for nothing really…Far away from home.
            If US orders you to, you will even attack China together with them UK and other US stooges.

            As if Putin is so clean LOL, he is a front puppet for the Jew oligarchs and very unpopular in Russia as even Southfront occasionally points out.

          • Dawn

            Those claims of “unpopularity” and 5 billion is just as fake as yours pictures..

          • Doom Sternz

            And thats where you loose me, im not saying Putin is a Saint but the evidence in Syria goes against what you have posted. Id Putin is all in for Jew Oligarchs then why is he in Syria at all? Russia is not at war with Israel nor will they start one.

          • Vitex

            Good ole Winston Churchill. He was a shit soldier

    • Bru

      Hatay actually belongs to Syria and contains historically very important ancient Christian cities like Antioch.
      When Syria was a French colonial protectorat, the French governement, instead of protecting Syria, offered Hatay to Turkey (in exchange of neutrality during WW2). The Syrian population had to flee to free parts of Syria to avoid a genocide like the one committed on the Armenians.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Indeed, I was about to point that out. You have a good grasp of history. Turkey is a fraying patch work of stolen lands and repressed ethnic groups.

      • Hatersgonnahate

        Hatay,it was granted autonomy by France after World War II. After autonomy, the people of hatay went to connect to Turkey by making elections.

      Hmmm, I think you may have something there.

  • ian

    http://syria.liveuamap.com/ is down and the latest SAA gains were not shown on the map when it was last up. The site admin is so depressed at the recent news he can’t keep his site going.

    • Informbiro

      Works for me.They always wait to confirm teritorial gains from different sources before changing the map.

      • ian

        When the headchoppers were advancing around Palmyra the map was updated as each pace forward was taken. The map is updated when he has no choice in the case of the SAA and updated like lightning if the headchoppers advance 1m. Still it is useful to see where things are happening as long as the propaganda is ignored.

  • Joe Doe

    While ilitans are on the run, SAA should continue West and liberate Darat Izza, Termanin, Atarib, Kafr Nuran Than go west along M4, create packets and clean packet. This will shorten front line and free many infantry and military hardware. Than SAA should rest and rearm and try negotiate, get Idlib back to Syria. SHort front line will give SAA better position and stronger fight militans and Turkey,if need to. M4 will also speed delivery of military hardware.
