On February 7, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces, repelled a Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) attack on its positions in the southeastern Idlib countryside, according to Syrian pro-government sources. The SAA reportedly killed and injured several fighters of HTS and its allies during the clashes.

Additionally, Russian warplanes destroyed several headquarters and ammo depots of the so-called Free Idlib Army in the city of Maarrat al-Nu’man in the southern Idlib countryside, according to Syrian activists.

Syrian opposition sources revealed that thirteen Free Idlib Army fighters, including their general commander “Mohammad Abu Najib”, were killed in the Russian airstrikes on Maarrat al-Nu’man. Russian warplanes also destroyed more than four vehicles armed with anti-aircraft guns belonging to the group.

Earlier, HTS, TIP and several Free Syrian Army groups launched an attack at the SAA positions in the southeastern Idlib countryside. However, these forces managed to capture a single village only, located over 10km southwest of the Abu Duhur airbase.

    Russia aerospace force must increase its activity to be able to finish with this war. War is not over, as Putin pretend. War is having a new face (Turkey-USA-kurds-Israel) which is much more complicated.

      Problem with the map is Tal Sultan has repelled every major attack by FSA/TFSA/HTS/TIP groups. Seen that retarded ISIS T-shirt “DEEZ NUTZ” twins both were Nusra then FSA earlier and now TFSA and still stupid asses grinning.

    The terrorists are “on the ropes” as we say. No reason to hurry. Work on them.
