Syrian Army Liberates Two Towns In Southern Idlib

Support SouthFront

On March 7, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated two towns in the southern Idlib countryside in what appears to be a limited ground attack.

According to several sources, army troops advanced in the region in the afternoon, imposing control of Marat Makhus and Burayj. No heavy clashes were reported.

Some opposition activist claimed that the two towns, which are located northwest of the town of Kafr Nabl, were a “no-man land.” However, other activists confirmed that the militants were forced to retreat from the towns following intense shelling by the SAA.

The army’s ground attack may have been a response to the recent ceasefire violations by the remaining militants in Greater Idlib. The militants violated the ceasefire six times on March 6. On March 7, more violations were reported in southeast Idlib and northwest Aleppo.

Earlier, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) rejected the recent Russian-Turkish agreement on Greater Idlib. The terrorist group, which is the biggest in the region, vowed to fight against the SAA and its allies.

The SAA will not likely advance any further in southern Idlib as for now. Nevertheless, the army could launch a fresh large-scale military operation in the region if Turkish-backed militants went on with their provocations.

White power!

SAA, just bomb the f*ckers… and take no prisoners, and if there are Turds embedded with the rats, so be it!

Nara ??

I have family members in Damascus, is the area safe from bombings and attacks?

Tim Williams

relatively so … did have a car bombing a couple of days ago … but is becoming rarer and rarer ..

Nara ??

That’s good to hear. I wish they would just leave the country.

Tim Williams

peace is coming … it will come very soon .. good things are happening

it’s all out their for everyone to see

Sorry Tim, and I m not trying to be funny but it’s one of those things that really annoy me :

“There” refers to a place – either a concrete or abstract place.

“Their” indicates possession.

“They’re” is merely a contraction for “they are.”

PZIVJ

Thanks. :)

It’s heartening to see the reconstruction proceeding at such a fast pace.

The Man

Yep, very safe. I’m currently in Syria and it’s extremely safe. Getting better day by day…

Another few weeks or perhaps months, the Turds will be out and they’ll probably take their scum rats with them, and the North will be safe. At the moment, the Turds are taking the opportunity of their recent submission or capitulation (surrender even) to Putin by exporting their scum rats to Libya!

Nara ??

Thank you, that’s great to hear

Ishyrion Av

Why don’t you ask them? Phones and internet are working.

Nara ??

I haven’t been able to contact them

Ishyrion Av

IF you have family in Damascus, you surely can contact someone, one of them or a family friend. If not, well…

If i was the SAA i would employ more air defense first and Radar to locate mortar and Artillery position,first of the Russians would have to do a reconnaissance to locate Turkey position of air defence location then full scale operations.

Tim Williams

TURKS are now out of this … they are removing their equipment

cliff

I hope you are right, as a human being I want the Syrian government to get this over with so the refugees could go back to they homeland. The nation is 60 years back from where they was,the rebuilding will put them in much more debts and they military will no be the same or as powerful ast they was till 20 years later,no curse nation could call them a threat.

Tim Williams

rebuilding is going much faster then Western media tells the public

https://twitter.com/SyriaRebuilt

Military is battle hardened and will bounce back to a power to reckon with when this is over … all new equipment will arrive

Some of those pictures Tim seem to have been taken before the start of the war and not after the end of the war in Aleppo.

I am impressed.

Britain started spending billions of £ cash to build a fast railway 10 years ago.

To date not even 1 metre of track has been laid, over 3 billion pounds spent, and the HS2 project cost has trebled so far with another 10 years at least for the trains to run :)

Crony capitalists paying each other to do nothing? Who’d have thought it! In my town we have the consortium named The Well Connected Alliance – true fact

FlorianGeyer

Yes, it’s all about the gravy train of experts, consultants,architects, engineers, environmentalists, lobbyists etc etc, having meetings about having meetings and the holy grail of all boondoggles so much loved by OUR corrupt elites professional’s.

This is a great ceasefire!

Tim Williams

fire on us … lose your city … remember the cease fire only involves Turkey – Russia – Syria …

Hasbara Hunter

What Ceasefire?

northerntruthseeker .

The idea was to try to return to the Astana agreements of 2018, and thus allow the SAA and the Syrian people to have control over the Idlib pocket right up to the M4 Motorway…

Of course the American run “terrorists” in the pocket would never conform to the agreements and they are the first to ruin any ceasefire…. They want to continue their operations in Idlib in the hope that it would turn into a wider range war that would bring the members of FUKUS into the fold as well as direct intervention by the psycho state of Israel..

How many hours did it last ???

Why has America funded this war against white Shia and Christians in Syria.

Why they bombed Serbia

Ishyrion Av

Same reasons. Israel wants to destroy Christianity. US is Israel’s hand.

Tim Williams

Keep the oil and gas in the LEVANT FIELD from being developed … SAUDI and other Arab countries bankrolled it and the USA supplied the original weapons from Libya at the beginning and continued to supply the rats for years …

jewSA did it for the Greater Pissrahell project, which entailed destabilizing, destroying Arab countries to be taken over by the leper colony of Hell Aviv and send scores of rapefugees to Europe with the goal of White Genocide by Immigration! American Zio regime is a traitor to Europe and to whites in general.

terrorists did not agree to the ceasefire … fire on the SAA … lose your town

It’s time for Lebanon to ask for air patrols over their country by the RuAF

https://twitter.com/GeromanAT/status/1236389800418127872

This would be a game changer in the area …

Icarus Tanović

That would be so great.

Tim Williams

Lebanon has no air force and no air defense .. IDF planes violate their airspace thousands of times every single year with no repercussions …

IRAN has offered them free SAMS … but the government is afraid to take them ..

Don’t count Hezbollah out.

Tim Williams

Hezbollah would likely operate them … the govt of Lebanon needs to give the green light for it to happen …

Personally … the Russian pilots would love the practice of going up against the best in a cat and mouse with the IDF without having to shoot each other down …

Assad must stay

russia needs to confrotn these israhelli planes and stop them from bombing syria willy nilly if they are really serious aobut protecting their ally

The Turks have gone insane :)
Is it in the hope that NATO will get involved in Idlib?

Tim Williams

not going to happen

They see that Germany gives them anything they ask for, they just got another half mill euros on top of the 6 bil euros they are getting ”to keep the immigrants” …!

Erdogan cries and pleads with NATO and the EU.
And yet he will receive nothing !! :DD

They used vehicles too.

The Turkish propaganda that these are Syrians is not convincing anyone either !

TS

I highly doubt that there are many Syrians within those refugees. Many of them are Jihadi terrorists that will unleash hell within Europe if allowed to pass.

Lazy Gamer

Some have really come a long way. lol So, there are economic and cultural constraints, I guess the best arrangement would be for the EU to set up camps in the short term, wind down hostilities in the midterm and in the long term avoid funding wars and to invest spare money in other countries(BRI? lol).

©igare☘☘e?Sm⚽️k?ng?Man️?

They are giving 6.5 bil euros to Turkey to keep them in. And they are not. They v taken the money and they are helping the immigrant – jihadis break through the Greek border!
Those 6.5 bil euros should had been invested on the countries they came from give them jobs in their countries, keep them happy in their own countries.
And like you said, don’t go bombing their countries every chance you get … USA and UK …!

” MIGRANTS ” burn down the facilities in Greece to help them .. now they have no bathing or water .. idiots ..

cynic

Begins the slow elimination of the remaining terrorist held territory south of the M4. No need to rush.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

For a start this comment is inaccurate,

“Earlier, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) rejected the recent Russian-Turkish agreement on Greater Idlib.”

They may have rejected the ceasefire agreement but the simple fact is they were never included in the ceasefire agreement anyway, they’re a designated terrorist group and still legal and viable targets according to the new agreement. And the SAA don’t even need the excuse of ceasefire violations to attack them, they can do it any time they want to just so long as civilians aren’t caught up in the crossfire.
And on checking the map SF published yesterday, it shows HTS occupying the position the SAA are now attacking, so the terrorists may not have broken the ceasefire at all, the SAA may have just attacked them because they’re allowed to, and the 2 towns the SAA just recaptured are also in this HTS occupied area, which means we can still safely liberate a little more territory without breaking the new ceasefire agreement.
The maps show the SAA setting up 2 battlefronts now, it looks like they’re about to initiate a pincer movement to surround and envelop all HTS in this location, and if they do manage to do it, it will take the SAA right up to the new 6 km buffer, which would mean that only one very small pocket of moderate opposition would be left below the 6 km buffer.
I expect to see the SAA push west from the areas they just recaptured and also push west into the locations they been bombing in Hama, that way they’ll leave an escape route north for the terrorists to flee through, and hopefully just follow them right up to the buffer as they’re fleeing.

I wan to see the thor anti-air craft in Syria Asap,the Syrian troops should learn how to use it in less then two weeks and in the fourth week ,the battle resumes.
