Syrian Army Liberates Another Town In Idlib, Reaches Newly-Established Turkish Post

Support SouthFront

On February 5, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated yet another town in southeast Idlib from al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies.

The army stormed the town of al-Sheikh Mansur in the afternoon and secured it within a few hours. HTS and its allies didn’t show any real resistance.

By imposing control of al-Sheikh Mansur, the SAA has reached another Turkish post. The post, which is locate between the town and the city of Saraqib, was established by the Turkish military last week.

In the early morning, the army besieged a Turkish observation post near the town of Tell Touqan, south of Saraqib, after imposing control of several towns and villages.

SAA troops are in the western and southern outskirts of Saraqib, the main target of the ongoing operation in southeast Idlib. The army may reach the city’s northern and eastern outskirts in the upcoming few hours.

They should cut off all resupply to the Turkish Observation post and just wait. Wait until those guys start to get hungry and beg Erdogan to bring them back home.

Any logical reason why this would be a bad idea?

klove and light

here is a brand new Video of Liwa al quds(palestinian faction) and SAA 5th Corps in battle with HTS to capture the startegic base in Idlib— Liwa al quds and SAA won the battle https://youtu.be/48oI7Xg5xMw

good american

Not worth the trouble it would cause. Having them sit there in the middle of syria watching syrian cows with no turkish proxies to help will make them look like imbeciles. The more power to them.

One could also set stalls with nice Syrian and Turkish snacks etc. available to Turkish troops leaving their arms behind. Some SAA troops would be tasked showing how they eat and drink (ayran and cherry juice?) while saying “it is so good” in Turkish.

They are in family meeting right now, how to troll SF 101


Lol, they seem to be surrounding Turkish outposts faster than Turkey can make them at this stage.


It’s so convenient of Erdogan to create these Turkish holiday resorts in Idlib, where his troops can relax and eat kebabs, while Syrian troops keep a watchful eye. They also provide convenient places for the SAA to collect Turkish hostages in case Erdogan gets uppity again and threatens to attack the SAA.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
