Syrian Army, Militants Exchange Fire In Greater Idlib

Support SouthFront

Early on May 13, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) exchanged fire with militants in different parts of the Greater Idlib region.

Militants targeted SAA positions near the town of Hizareen in southern Idlib. Army units responded to the attack in kind.

Later, the army artillery pounded militants’ positions in the town of Kabani in Mount Kurd in the northern countryside of Lattakia, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

The ceasefire in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey on March 5, appears to be nearing its end. The militants are launching more and more attacks.

Last week, al-Qaeda-affiliated militants launched a large attack on SAA positions in northwestern Hama. More than 30 Syrian soldiers were killed in the clashes. A tank was also captured by the militants.

The SAA stepped up its artillery and rocket strikes on Greater Idlib following the attack. However, a proper response is yet to be delivered.

The army and its allies will likely launch a large-scale operation in Greater Idlib, if the March 5 agreement collapse. The repeated militant’s’ attacks indicate that this could happen soon.

Shia terrorists vs sunni terrorists.Nothing to see here :D

klove and light

you dont catch the DRIFT do you???? or are you a bibi cock sucking satanic Zionist motherfucker????

ISRAEL is a illegal, criminal, war mongering, ENTITY !!!

it was created on a genocide.(just as the british/Zionist controlled fucking USA)

Israel has caused the death of MILLIONS in the middle east.

ISRAEL MUST be destroyed, or to use the GREAT words of the late GREAT iranian General Qasem Soleimani ” sooner or later we will PUSH you into the mediteranian.So start learning to swim”

Israel is the epicentrum of PURE EVILNESS and SATANISM on our planet !

and sooner or later……just use ,if you have one, your god givin brain, ISRAEL will VANISH.This is common sense and logic.And no nuclear arms will Change a Thing About that.
Will the Evil satanic jews use nukes when the “big war” starts?? 100%…..but it wont Change the Outcome. STUDY LEARN READ.

Nuclear weapons are a DETERRENT. Was Always like that, and will Always be that. A DETERRENT. On a battle field, espeically on Israels Battlefield they cannot be used, Israel is a Tiny enclave, and any nukes used would also kill the Zionist jews.
the nukes will be used against Bagdad,teheran,damascus etc…. but again….it WONT Change the OUTCOME of the war.

EVER heard of the “SAMSON OPTION” u idiot ?????????

The Samson Option is nothing less, than the Blackmail by them Zionist satanic jews of the USA and europe, telling them that if it becomes clear that Israel will be overrun and them satanic jews pushed into the sea, Israel will use their nukes as last Option against cities in the USA and europe.

That alone Shows you the evilness, wickness and pure satanism of the jewish mind.

Fuckem all, and fuck all their jew cock sucking slaves

Israel IS the terrorist, ISIS is a mossad creation (just ask a zionist jew), and israel otherwise aids and abets all of the other terrorists/jihadists in syria.


Has there been any reporting or any interviews of the local population of the recaptured areas of Idlib, to see what the people thought of their previous leadership? Would be interesting if the locals in Idlib are like the locals in the rest of Syria.. I assume so, but still!

God bless SAA, keep on pounding them.

King Cliff

Once Ramadan is over the Syrian military need to kick an offensive in first week after Ramadan,it would be a limited action since the Turkish supported will always violated the cease fire or once they violated the cease fire. Turkey will not risk an all out war with Russian and Erdogan knows that’s one line he can’t not crush cause of instability that would spread in his nation and in the government. The Turkey would not use aircraft,they would only use drones and artillery to support they criminal gangs and I know for a fact these things could be eliminated especially if the Russian raise they toned against Turkey supporting those Criminals gangs who violated the cease fire and demand they must be deal with and withdrew from a certain area of a good scale.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

But which militants attacked the SAA, was it pro Turkish militants or anti Turkish militants, because now that we have both flavours of terrorist it’s important to know which group it actually was.
And I don’t think the anti Turkish militants attacked the SAA [or even want to anymore], they’re already in a struggle for survival with their old allies and way too busy to worry about the SAA right now, so I suspect it was the pro Turkish militants doing the attacking and trying their best to provoke the SAA into starting a campaign against HTS.
LOL, what’s even better than watching your enemy divide into a hundred different militias and then start infighting amongst themselves, it’s watching your enemy divide into 2 roughly equal forces and then watching them hammer the hell out of each other, LOL.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
