Syrian Army Recaptures al-Hamameyat And Its Hill In Northern Hama, Kills Dozens Of Militants

Donate

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has recaptured the key town of al-Hamameyat and its hill in northern Hama from Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies.

Citing a military source, Muraselon, a pro-government outlet, reported that the SAA began its counter-attack in the afternoon of July 11. After few hours of heavy shelling, army units were able to impose control of al-Hamameyat’s main hill and later the entire town.

More than 20 militants of HTS and its allies were reportedly killed and dozens others were injuring during the clashes around al-Hamameyat in the last 24 hours.

A coalition of HTS, Turkish-backed groups and al-Qaeda-affiliated factions captured al-Hamameyat in a rapid attack a day ago only. SAA units withdrew from the town with minimum losses.

While the recapture of al-Hamameyat and its hill is for sure an achievement for the SAA, the next step will be decisive. Another ceasefire could allow HTS and its allies to regroup and launch new attacks. This scenario has repeated itself many times over the last two months.

    • Jens Holm

      So what about Sultan Murad. He would be a “Taking back”.

  • ColinNZ

    Latest count is around 50 terrorists killed including 2 emirs and many terrorist ‘special forces’ (best trained & experienced fighters). Turkey is busy treating many more that were wounded. A crucial battle that the SAA had to win, and they did. It is part of a turning point but still turning very slowly at the moment.

    • Jens Holm

      When some more 1000s are killed Assads can get peace and Golan by taking all westbankers as replacements for the spendables.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    fuck all the ceasefires AND KILL AS MANY TORKI RATS AS POSSIBLE SAA!!!! PUTIN YOU BETTER WISEN UP AND START SHOWING YOUR LOYALTY TO ASSAD!!!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The problem as you are well aware is the manpower shortage in the SAA and the Americunts, Turkeys and Saudi scum are recruiting headchoppers from as far away as China’s Uighurs, Kazakhs etc. Syria has had a huge male demographic issue as the hardcore Sunni Salafist types either escaped, don’t report for conscription or have joined terrorists. The Turkeys are also using prisoners, murderers, and rapists from their jails as terrorists besides their own military in Idlib. They are also facilitating Saudi terrorists as recent death of these headchoppers has confirmed. Syrian military is in a bind as it takes a good year or so to train motivated COIN forces. The Iranian supported militias have done a good job in securing major cities, western and central Syria, but to hold more territory will require more motivated and well trained manpower like Hezbollah. The Russian role in Idlib is also questionable due to Putin’s eagerness to please the mad maniac ErDOGan. Considering the Idlib terror enclave is barely 3,000 sq kms, it should have been bombed to hell if Russia really deployed serious air assets and even ground missiles and artillery. The Russian coma has given the Turkeys time to rearm the terrorists with some very serious NATO weaponry including 120mm heavy mortars and surplus Javelins. It will take determined effort to liberate Idlib, it can be done but time will tell. The Turks are biggest scum in this whole destabilization of Syria for their sole aim of annexing the best productive lands.

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        yes, if russia does not want to get into a direct shooting war with turkey, then it needs to at least really ramp up its support for SAA, as erdogan is doing for his shithadists

        • Jens Holm

          Thats onl one solution among many wriiten i cement, where You are.

          Fx all could just go home do some farming or selling some candy in their kiosks.

      • Jens Holm

        Very nice only to have 1 problem only.

      • yep they should cut off idlib from turkey after finishing with lataminah
        and stop the turkey from resupplying the jihadis and other scums

    • Justin

      yeah Putin, show loyalty. u think coming to rescue Syria in 2015 and still doing to this very day is enough? u think when ISIS and Alquieda almost reached the major cities of Syria (Hama, Homs, Damascus, Daraa) with the help of the USA and Israel and most likely would have killed every person and the only country who can stand up to them was Russia was enough?
      Do u?
      After the sanctions placed on ur banks and diplomats and oil exports! After what they tried in ukraine and Chechnya! Do u think that your help is enough? huh? ANSWER!
      Even though the average wage in Russia is $400 per month and u had to raise the retirement age to 68 or 70 so u could afford this war in syria do u think its enough? yes or no? Answer the fucking question Putin! DO YOU THINK ITS ENOUGH/???
      Sending all those arms to Syria via Turkish controlled black sea entrance, having turkey and the US shoot at u, killing your soldiers do u think its enough? huh?
      U think being a poor country gives u the right to help us only a little bit u can avoid world war 3 is enough huh? u think winning back 90% of the lad when Syria was on the verge of collapse was enough? Do u Putin??answer me u fucking bastard Putin!
      We dont want u making peace with your enemies, we want blood and nuclear weapons used! Thats what we want! We dont want u to make a strategic ally with Turkey, we want blood! We dont care that Syria’s cities are back to normal and people are paying taxes and middle east nations have opened up their borders to us and consulates! We want BLOOD and u havent done enough!

      Lol. U spoiled little whining bitch!!!!!
      u should be down on your knees submissively licking Putin’s balls!

            You dont have to. Its made for others. You give no debate Yourself.

            You goes on knees if You want to see something very much smaller the You.

            You as AS and SADS expect, Yopu are the biggest ones raised as such by definitions. By that You not even understand the millions of Syrians, which now defend themselves from someone having that point of view.

            You are small for them. You are small for me too and not able to run a country. Actually many of You should be in prison for 550.000 killed, 10 millions not at home, millions of handicapped and the total destrucktions – You are wrongh.

            You could have changed things by many reforms during time. You could have divided power by trust … You could have …And You still exist.

          I think he is quite sober even my symphaty is not in his camp.Thats not trolling. Nothing is hidden.

          • JerryDrake

            Maybe you are right about him but, what about Chechnya? Chechnya is a part of Russia, so this is their internal problem.
            You think Chechnya has right to be independent state? So, why you did not support Serbs in Croatia and give them independent state, and instead that, you supported the genocide and mass expulsion of Serbs from Croatia.
            If the Chechens have the right to independence based on the majority of population, then it applies to all who seek independence on the same basis, whether they like it to you or not!

        • Justin

          Shut the fuck up Gary. U love China. Ure a dumb cunt. You’re a fuckin pussy I’d beat up within 15 seconds. No need to defend someone calling Putin unloyal. Fuck.off U little bitch and suck some Chinese dick.

      • S Melanson

        Sure, let Assad and all Syrians do that, slurp away. Just as the victors of WWI had Germany on its knees submissively licking their collective balls. And we know what happened.

        • Jens Holm

          Very much of that is very unusefull as well as historical incorrect.

          You cant even mention that Poland before that corridor was divided and went into non existence.

          • S Melanson

            That is a good point about Poland. And perhaps the primary point of my post does not come across and Poland makes a good example. Poland was often the sacrificial lamb caught in the middle of power struggles between Russia and Western Europe. Germany and Austria-Hungary and Russia all lost territory to create Poland, Austria-Hungary broke up altogether.

            Poland land corridor was a great power decision following WWI and would be a potential Cassus belli between Germany and Poland. Great powers decided on the political settlement of the Middle East with break up of Ottoman and a betrayal of the Arabs, which made for a volatile ME. Multi-polar world order is what we are returning to and the great powers in the past have moved the chess pieces only to plant seeds for future conflict. After WWII, the Jewish problem was resolved by the partition plan where the great powers imposed their will on Palestinians to solve a problem of their own making and we know how that has turned out.

            Tthe Polish corridor was resolved with Prussia integrated into Poland and part to Soviet Union. Soviet Union as victor annexed the Polish territory occupied after invading Poland under hidden protocols in the Molotov-Ribbentrop Non-aggression Pact – Poland will remember this knife in the back for a long time. Combine that with Polish subjugation until 1991, there is no mystery why Poland is hostile to Russia. These are the seeds Russia planted in playing their part in great power global chess.

            I am warning the great powers, and that includes Russia to be mindful what seeds they are planting today because tomorrow is never far away.

      Russia spends billions of dollars and endangers its soldiers’ lives every day for years, in order to save what is left of Syria.
      If not for Russia, Assad would have ended up like Gaddafi.

            Assads has not changes a thing since the problems did overrun You killing all good as well as bad opposition.

        • Free man

          In my opinion Putin sees the big picture and he is trying to shape the postwar Syria. Inter alia, by making deals with neighboring countries, the United States, etc. But in the process he supports Syria despite heavy pressure from every direction.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            but assad doesnt like him making deals with erdodog and israhell im sure

    • Jens Holm

      Russians has invested bilions i Assads for own pursposes, but Assads fx sold Afrin to Turley(and FSA) for nothing being totalæly stubbern.

      No negosiations was possible. Assads wanated the ancient dicatatoremirate structure back like putting horses on Your motorways.

      Your big letters illustrates well You screem and shout and dont listen. Some might invent special made mixted rooms for negosiations.

  • Prince Teutonic

    Now that a delivery of S-400 to Turkey is almost done I hope Russia starts supporting SAA for real…

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Russia sadly won’t as long as the Jew slave Putin is in power. Russian agenda in Syria is basically the same as the Americunts and in line with the Yinon plan. Why do think the Russians, Zionists and Americunts hold regular “security meetings” in Tel Aviv on Syria? Syria’s only hope is to strengthen ties with the Axis of Resistance and prepare for a long asymmetrical war and also promote demographic changes by allowing Shia from allied nations to settle in Syria.

      • Tudor Miron

        Justin’s post above is for you.

      • Free man

        You are an ungrateful fool.
        Russia spends billions of dollars and endangers its soldiers’ lives in order to save what is left of Syria. Stop babbling about Iran, which abandoned the SAA in Idlib/Hama.

        • Jens Holm

          I agree. I disagree in, what Russia do there, but they are spending a lot of money, attension and making more enemies then friends there.

          An eveil person like me might let the Syria to USA, because they would win by harming USA more with that…

          I see no Russian solutions unless some parts there totally collapse.

      • Jens Holm

        Another orgastic kind of comming out from Your behind. Russia as well as China are in the agreement, that none others should have nukes.

        Thats what very much is about. If Iran would like to be less herassed, they could slose down uran upgrading.

    • Jens Holm

      You must be blind on Your toes having socks on them too.

  • J Roderet

    Great job, Syrian army! The Neocons’ al-Queda minions are slowly but steadily getting ground up, which will pave the way for Idlib’s liberation.

  • klove and light

    lololol……dont u worry u Takfiri jihadi scumbags……..S-400 is on the way to Turkey….and so is the next ceasefire…….dont worry be happy……zionists will give the order to Putin, and he as usual will deliver!!!

    ps. just us your Brains for 1 fucking second….and Play out the hama/Idlib Scenario…..

    They…want US to believe…that a well equipped army (SAA) with 100% air superiority(russian and syrian airforce) cannot defeat jihadi headchoppers which have no airforce,no Choppers,no artillery, no ballistic Missiles and no note worthy amount of modern tanks etc.. ?????????

    so practically we are at Hollywood Rambo III.. were a small Group of bandits, armed with AK´s defeats a russian garrison equipped with attack Choppers and planes and tanks by riding horses Right through the russian troops..

    sure sure i believe i believe…… LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    Safety of Satanyahu and Erdogan is more important for traitor Putin.

  • kraaiiii
  • hope they squeeze them around lataminah and then finish them off

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Then why keep repeating the same mistake over and over again, why not try something different, oh that’s right, it’s because Erdogan keeps promising Putin that things will be different next time, the next ceasefire will work, but I don’t think Putin’s listening anymore, the sound of Russian bombs falling on the rebel heads is drowning out Erdogan’s pleas.
    I wonder if things will change now the Turks finally have the S-400’s, I can actually imagine Erdogan ordering them to target Syrian warplanes flying over Idlib, just to see how effective they really are, I hope the Syrians and Russians fly joint missions for a while, at least until Erdogan’s excitement levels have died down a little.
