Syrian Army Prepares For Operation In Aleppo, Turkish Proxies Move To Libya: War Report

The Syrian Army is preparing for a ground operation against radical militants in western Aleppo, sources close to the Damascus government claim. According to reports, the Syrian military was preparing for this operation during the past two months.

The operation in western Aleppo will complement the recent advance in southeast Idlib. Both of them are aimed at reopening the M5 highway that passes though western Syria.

Earlier in December, government forces liberated over 40 towns and villages in southeast Aleppo deploying in a striking distance from the militant-held city of Maarat al-Numan. The Syrian Army halted the advance in late December once again giving so-called moderate rebels a chance to separate from al-Qaeda-linked terrorists. Nonetheless, this move found no understanding among Idlib armed groups.

On December 28, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its Turkish-backed allies launched a large attack on Syrian Army positions in the recently-liberated towns of Al-Teh and Jarjanaz. However, they failed to break the army defense. At least two suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices launched by militants were destroyed before they were able to reach army positions.

Turkey is redeploying large groups of members of its proxy groups in Syria to Libya in order to support the pro-Turkish Government of National Accord (GNA) that is involved in the battle for Tripoli against the Libyan National Army (LNA). Videos from the ground show that Turkish-backed Syrian militants are already involved in the fighting on the ground. One of the groups involved in this operation is the al-Mu’tasim Division based in Syria’s northern Aleppo.

The deployment of Turkish-backed Syrian groups in Libya is another confirmation that the so-called Syrian opposition is just a batch of mercenaries and radicals that do not link their future with the territory of Syria and the Syrian state.

Now or never !! Go and get those bastards SAA! When M5 highway is liberated they will start to panic! Good that Turks are everywhere that means they’ll end up nowhere.

Butcher regime preparing for another costly, failed offensive. These guys have to be the most incompetent “army” on the planet. Rebels with only small arms are repelling the Syrian “army” which has heavy weapons and air support. Must be embarrassing to be a supporter of the butcher regime.

Yerrh, I knew it. They are running everythig and You are running nothing.


And it must be even more embarrassing to fail a regime change project in such a humiliating way one step at a time ever since 2015.

Come on Mustafa, don’t try to fool the people, you know full well your boss isn’t expecting an attack at Aleppo, he’s expecting an attack in Idlib, that’s why he’s moving his terrorists out of Aleppo and bussing them to Idlib. And you slipped up again, you called the terrorists rebels, but the real Zionist Jews are calling Erdogan’s fighters terrorists now, they don’t like the Turks oppressing their Kurdish friends, so now they call them nasty names too, only the Turks and the Turk supporters call the terrorists rebels. Be careful you’re slipping up too often, someone will realize you’re not really a Jew soon, remember, terrorist instead of rebel, don’t forget. Cheers Mustafa.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

I love the way the military spokesman of the LNA describes Erdogan’s most loyal mercenaries,

“Spokesman of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Major General Ahmed al-Mismari affirmed that the Turkish regime has transported hundreds of the most dangerous terrorists from Daesh (ISIS) and al-Qaeda terrorist organizations from Syria to Libya.”


I was wrong, it seems Erdogan is actually sending SNA reinforcements to Idlib, south eastern Idlib to be precise, and he’s taking fighters from both Aleppo and Al Hasakah, so it seems Erdogan’s not so worried about the SDF in north eastern Syria, and he must’ve missed the SF article concerning the possible new SAA assault on Aleppo, so does that mean he’s going to get caught with his pants down, probably not. I’m starting to think this info concerning a possible new Aleppo operation may be coming from sources that aren’t really that knowledgeable about the Syrian government’s intentions, because Erdogan’s moving his fighters away from the place the sources say will be the next battleground, mmm, Erdogan can read the news too and he doesn’t seem too concerned about Aleppo, he’s more worried about Idib, and I think he’s right, that’s where the SAA should be hitting him, not Aleppo. Perhaps the assertions about Aleppo are just speculation, I can’t see Erdogan being so stupid that he’d move fighters away from a possible new battlefront, especially one everyone knows about, but we’ll find out soon enough.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
