Syrian Army Repels Large Militant Attack In Southern Idlib

Support SouthFront

Late on February 6, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) repelled a large-scale attack on its newly-established positions in the southern Idlib countryside.

Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its Turkish-backed allies launched the large attack in the afternoon. Opposition sources claimed that the Turkish military’s artillery provided the militants with support. However, this is yet to be verified.

Muraselon, a pro-government outlet, said that the SAA maintained all of its positions in the towns of Dadik and Nayrab, the main targets of the failed attack. A military source told the news outlet that dozens of militants were killed during the clashes.

Syrian and Russian warplanes reportedly chased the militants withdrawing from the battlefield, targeting them as well as their equipment.

HTS and its allies launched attack a few hours after losing Saraqib city. The attack was likely an attempt to absorb the anger of their supporters after their repeated defeats.

The SAA will most likely resume its advance along the M5 highway in the upcoming few hours. The army’s next target is likely the town of al-Eis in southwest Aleppo. The army could also advance towards the town of Sarmin to reach the southern entrance of Idlib city.

I have a dream :)

It would be terrific to see the Russian Aerospace Whits Swans in action again and to send more head chopping vermin to the Turkish brothel where their 72 virgins are waiting for them to die.

Perhaps Erdo will also visit the brothel very soon, as his blood pressure must be rising to dangerous levels.

Vitex

There are a few that would pay to watch his head explode

FlorianGeyer

And out of his head would come a poisonous snake.

Vitex

David Icke reckons they’re all reptiles and sometimes it’s hard to disagree

John Wallace

Isn’t he more concerned about 5G waves turning people into robots now that people can’t see Eliz II as head lizard.

Vitex

Let’s just say we’ll wait and see. I can see a 5G antenna from where I’m sitting and so far my brain is just fine. If I start trolling in support of Trump’s Deal of the Century you know that they’ve gotten to me….

John Wallace

If you start supporting Trumps deal I think you would have been on a pretty heavy session with Jens and I would be a little more than worried.

Tudor Miron

Rats are running. Erdogan is fuming. Those who were saying that Erdogan outsmarted Russia are hiding.
Good.

FlorianGeyer

Sociopaths with little formal education are always very erratic. They use intimidation and cunning to get what they want. The problem for such people is that they seldom think far ahead. They are rather like rats, and the problem for all such rats is getting stuck in a barrel. It this case a ‘metal barrel’.

BMWA1

By rats you must mean Erdogans Rescue Rangers surely. Erdo is head ranger.

FlorianGeyer

Chief Ratty.

Tudor Miron

Rats = US/UK irregular armed forces = Daesh/Queda/all the rest of terrorist trash. Erdogan is no different than older Osman and Turkish leaders. They think they’re smart and serving their own interests while in reality they were always working on behalf of City of London.

BMWA1

Or Berlin, or DC, London W1 was the main player between Lord Palmerston and Disraeli, esp. in events of Crimean War and Bulgarian Independence War, on Turk side….but Berlin takes over in last two decades of 19th Century. A pro-Russo-Soviet attitude held only briefly in 1920s (then Germany again, then with NATO).

Jens Holm

Maybee Muhammed did the damage of Yours long time ago. Some even say he painted the Black Sea.

You read the history of those things just as ISIS and other Johadists read Islam. Only dirty pages are allowed. The rest is not there or used as topilet paper.

John Wallace

Well someone painted the Black Sea as I can testify having stood on that stoney beach at Yalta looking twards Turkey on the horizon thinking of all the different ships over time that plied these waters. There is a replica ancient boat which I found out is a resturant which is quite amazing. Moored oposite probably the most expensive hotel in Yalta. No I didn’t stay they as I am neither famous nor rich nor movie star. Did Mohammed paint the sea black , I think not as the paint available in those days would not have lasted this long..

Your excuses are too many and far out during time and facts, thats what I meant.

Maybee Osmans should not have started the Turkish Petroleum company for taking up oil. By that many millions in the region were not norn and alive having no money for food and any modern medical care.

So Your next slogan for progress should be: Oil for lamps only – as in the good old days.

Jens Holm

Thats a very internal comment for parts of the parts of ME only.

If You spread that kind of stuff to the rest of the world many would die laughing right away.

Evil things in Your region seemes always to be some proxies far away. Being that irresponsible should be an indication for, the best solution wouls be some others took over as it was.

Here You in enturies were one biiig happy family.

John Wallace

Bit like your comments Jens. We would probably die laughing if we could understand them but we just shrug our shoulders and go WTF was that.

Jens Holm

Thats right. Its a bit of many of my comments. You deny to understand, that Your oppinions are local Hill Billies selected elected ones.

Too much is like a museum, where You have main decorated with fake artifacts and texts.

One like me could inderstand thet, if You have great succes. I dont see that.

Assads winning in Idlib is a great succes. Ehy is it lost. Afrin is given to Turks. Northern zone of SDFs given to Turks. ISIS still very much alive here and there. Syrian production close to zero. The lira cheeper then toietpaper if it exist.

And so many here even predict the dollar will collapse being collapsed themselves and no numbers says westrn economies are colapsing at all. Hardly none are even able to understand the affiliation to the Yuan and its good and bad sides.

Luke Hemmming

Your language reminds me of old washing been hanging to long on clothes lines that cross many rivers wide for as long as the eyes see that. Indians carry arrows too short for digging into stone ground but perfect for stabbing bread that is more than one day old. The old wise man says one day is never too far away but you cannot see because the macaroni cheese is too thick. So you press on and realized that the day had turned to night and many moons passed before the fire was extinguished by the persistent winds of change. That said I can only agree to disagree with what you right as the leaves turn Brown in autumn before the spring had turned and the rabbits start to breed. You know what I mean?

Jakke1899

My God! This is wonderful stuff, worthy of a noble prize in literature! I nearly choked in my breakfast! I’m going to print this out keep it for posterity. Tell me, you wrote this yourself?
And the reaction of Jens?!?! “24 sheep.” :-)))) F$cling marvellous!

Luke Hemmming

Thanks Jake. :-D Yeah I wrote this straight from the top of my head.I was taking the pi55 out of Jens because who the phuck nose what the phuck he is talking about when he writes his comments????

Jens Holm

Pie or 22/7 ???

The top of Your head??? No wonder You have problems. Its more hairy then bold. None has told You to use the porrige below?

Yours probatly is first class and never used. Try to connect with some electricity.

Jens Holm

Maybee Your avatar should change clothe.

Its not my fault You only are able to read and write parts of the english language. Westerns fx work and dont waste time in making whole sentensen all the time.

Things here also is a litle more com´plicated then Turkish, Arabic and Farsi thinking by Google translate and You all write only lawyers English well – Even perfect it dont cover and should not as well.

So You dont know oral english as well as all the causes and a lot of other stuff.

I dont blame You for being bprn with those languages, but I certainly do blame You for not understandig what most westerns use to communicate much better then most.

None here wil go back to school and in texts like here on twitter only learn what I learned when I was 15 to 16 years old added childrens english I learned before that.

You are the minusin this.

I could write this in the American version 4 u too but I try to be polite. We also use SMS and MMS english. I am polite nopt using that.

So next time You dont understand pls ignore or ask. I write as short as possible not spending time for unneeded waste time filling in words as well as well as some casuses seemes not to be in Your languages. And yes, this is a fast media, so I often use oral language.

John Wallace

That makes more sense than Jens ever has ..

Jens Holm

24 sheep. I dont see counterattack isrunning away.

Whe You write here You dont read the text but write and behave as hooligans.

John Wallace

So what are you saying Jens. HTS have run out of donkeys so they brought in 24 sheep.HTS behave like hooligans with these sheep. Jens I think there is another more appropiate word for what they are doing with these sheep but I will blush should I mention it.

Jens Holm

I just say some big counterattack is not running and they understand as they wish.

Thats hooliganisme or worse.

Luke Hemmming

YES but does the water run out of taps or does it walk at slow pace like turtles run races to end finish line?

Jens Holm

And again. Its written they counterattack, thats hardly running away. Some nut wrote they run away.

Many probatly has been killed and in the couterattack as well. They hardly run away unless Assads and the Put Inns fight Hindus.

Vitex

Well, those so-called FSA reinforcements were so pathetic that it’s no wonder they can’t put up a fight. Also, the knowledge that the Russians and SAF and artillery now have a working system of targeted munitions makes it dangerous to go outside in Eastern Idlib. Unless you’re a Turk.

antoun

objectif principal the SAA clearified the higway M5! direction ALEP!!!

Lupus

Jihad Turks did not score a single success in years. TAKBEEEER!!!

Jens Holm

Maps dont show that.

jorge

Stupid Enver Erdogan Pasha cannon fodder.

James Kira

Im repelled also.

John Wallace

We all repell you because you are repulsive and repugnant. so it is understanderble that you are repelled. You should be apalled and attempt to appeal to be aproved and repelled no more.

James Kira

Believers are always repelled throughout history, especially by the jews.

Luke Hemmming

Wow this Jew repellant i purchased the other day works really well! Best 5 dollars i have spent in years.

Assad must stay

great job SAA

Aleks Chernyy

SAA must now consolidate. They advanced rapidly over the last several days. Now, we must expect several counterattacks from the Turkish terrorists. Most likely scenario is a jihadists will lunch several waves of Battalion sized formations. When they assume one third casualties, they will stop their attack. In the meantime, the Russian and Syrian airspace forces must hit convoys and punish jihadists who are moving around Idlib.

SAA should advance further on the eastern portion of the M5 highway, near Aleppo. the rebels will likely be pulling troops from peripheral positions in order to protect Idlib. This situation creates both an opportunity to bid those groups while in transit, as well as for the SAA to make progress in areas that were previously will fortified.

I also think it is wise for the SAA to press jihadist on the eastern side of the M5 Highway. A arger buffer zone must be created on the west side of the highway in order to make it useful. At this point the purpose of taking territory from the jihadists must be to decrease the size of the active front line in order to concentrate troops were there needed.

Tim Williams

Reading 48 hours break on the eastern front to clean up, rest, celebrate,

Weather is turning crappy grounding aircraft for close support during this time.

nick1111

Time to drop something on Erdogan head

Joe Doe

SAA should take Sarmin and Arihah first. Arihah will cut off or at least disrupt militans supply line to south and West of Idlib control by militans.Than go after al-Eis or go after al-Eis if there is resources allowed. Russia also should supply Syria with S-400 and Mig-30 and Su-30 and more attacked helicopter, because Turkey will not leave SYria on its own will

Tim Williams

SAA has already taken SARMIN

Jacob Wohl's Nose

No way, really?

Tim Williams

What the TURKS are bringing in on their convoys.

https://twitter.com/WithinSyriaBlog/status/1225556167063199744/photo/1

goingbrokes

Still, the Turks won’t bring anything at all unless someone pays for it. They are not giving them for free and it is likely the supply is already dried up! We have seen it everywhere in Syria the jihadists have massive ammo stores. Someone spent a lot of money bringing those into Syria.
Gulf monarchies have financed a lot of this, and then there is the trillions large black hole in the Pentagon accounts which could explain much of the financing if anyone was to get to the bottom of it (unlikely).
The photo seems to be of a standard shipping container that is placed on the back of a lorry!

Tim Williams

I’ve known for years the SAUDIS and their ilk have bankrolled this entire thing

Jens Holm

Its not Saudis there unless ISIS. Its not needed. So many dont like Assads at all.

PZIVJ

For a Grad rocket truck.
SAA is happy to have these, and the Jihadist rats can’t aim so well anyways. :)

Tim Williams

terror weapons is what they are … launch them at ALLEPO … you’re going to hit something

משה גודמן (Moshe 75)

Can’t wait for the combined US-Turkish Military Operation to liberate Idlib and Aleppo from the Butcher Assad Regime’s forces! Russkies wont be able to do a darn thing, and if they do, the US Airforce will annihilate their airbase. Idlib is Turkey’s and ours to keep, those civilians need our protection.

Tim Williams

are you on Quaaludes ?

“Idlib is Turkey’s and ours to keep”
Mustafa don’t you ever give up, only the Turks want Idlib and Aleppo, the Jews want Al Hasakah, Deir ez Zor and Ar Raqqah, and the Jews are saying they want Turkey to get out of Syria altogether, but you’re saying Idlib is ours to keep, you certainly are mixed up aren’t you.

משה גודמן (Moshe 75)

Only a matter of time before we see Turkish Military Campaign against Assad in Idlib, with the full support of the Mighty US Military and all their Tomahawk Missiles! Get the hell out Russia, before you get burned also. We’ve had enough all these years of Butcher Assad Genocides. No more Assad Regime, starting the end of February or sooner!

Erdogan is a bat I wish Chinese can wet him in soup and it him up.Erdogan is a coronavirus among ISIS.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

So what will actually happen in Syria if Turkey does practically go to war against the SAA, and the Russians for whatever reason don’t do much to intervene, any guesses.
For one that 65 to 90,000 opposition and terrorist forces in Idlib will grow, voluntary recruits and conscripts will swell their ranks with Turkey’s assistance.
All the foreign Jihadists that’ve fled over the last 18 months will return thanks to knowing Turkey’s actually committed to supporting them to the bitter end this time, so their ranks will grow too.
Morale will grow amongst the anti Assad population strengthening their resolve and commitment politically.
Isis will be able to take advantage of the Turkish hostilities and operate in Syria more freely than they do .
And the so called moderate opposition will be much more persuasive when lobbying the UN for more support to allow annexation of Syria to form an independant or Turkish administered state, similar to what the Kurds and US have done in northern Syria.
And of course it’s also contribute to ongoing problems with the Kurds, not just the US supported SDF, I mean the whole Kurdish population, once they become involved in the direct fighting there’ll be no minimising civilian casualties like the SAA and the Russians do, the Kurdish gloves will come off and the Kurds in general will do to the Turks what the ALF Kurds already do, kill them and anybody else that happens to be nearby at every opportunity.
Syria could become a bloodbath very quickly thanks to Turkish military efforts, forget about the early days with Isis and foreign Jihadists, they’ll be like the good old days, with the terrorist on the ground and the Turks providing covering fire the poor old SAA will have a hard time stopping them now, we all better hope and pray the Russians do something to stop them, if they don’t or can’t do anything positive things are about to go to crap very quickly.

Xoli Xoli

With due respect to you opinion.Turkey will soon loose those rusty convoy of his. Russian got missiles which can seal off entire base or a city not nuclear once.Their got also anti ship messiles which can sink the entire Turkey warship in seconds.On testing ground one messile covers 30 square kilometers. Actually Erdogan is abusing Russian patience.Russian got agressive different special forces units which can take urgent matters in own hands to neutralize casualties if it deems necessary.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

I know what they’ve got Xoli and what they can do with them, the questions we have to ask are,
one will they use them to stop the Turks and their proxies wiping Assad and the SAA from the face of the earth,
and two if they do attack Turkey what will the US and NATO do to assist Turkey.
Even if they don’t help Turkey militarily there’s still a lot they can do to help Erdogan, arms and equipment, funds, resources, intell, political support,, atm Turkey enjoys none of that from it’s US, EU, or NATO friends and allies, after a direct Russian intervention that would most likely change instantly.
We should’ve avoided antagonizing Erdogan until we really had to, attacking the north prematurely has brought things to a head way too quickly, we still have a huge front to protect and our enemies are already positioned amongst our troops and growing in numbers, I see this as a recipe for disaster more than an omen of good fortune. So everything depends on how hard the Russians push back against Turkey, and if they do push back but push too hard, will it then escalate to a wider conflict.
I’m totally uncertain as to what will happen now, I just wish we could’ve avoided this development until we had all of southern Idlib and Hama back under our control, now I’m getting scared we’re about to lose the lot, Idlib and Aleppo.

Xoli Xoli

Thanks lets keep focus.One never knows whats next.

Nosey

Dont sweat !!! i dont think syria will be taken by the turks #1 russia, iran & to an extent china is too heavily invested in syria & between themselves.they would NOT let this happen also to keep the US in check which they know turkey is a US ally #2 I think that if erdogan goes through with this eratic behaviour for instance nato will not risk entering a $$$$ war for little syria against iran,russia,ect,ect US will not enter but because erdodan seems to be an eratic independant thinker ??? maybe that would be one way to get rid of him & the akp If turkey goes to war they will be fighting on all fronts remember there are also 40 million kurds in the area that will be armed funded by turkeys foes If turkey does go ahead erdogan & the akp will not last too long their ambitions are bigger than their capabilites Unless nato or & the US enter turkey has no chance there are not many arab states that will back him also. The most important thing to remember is this is a war against terrorism the world is united against terrorism stay focused syria will be back in the hands of syrians sooner than later gods will

Willing Conscience (The Truths

I’ve been sweating since the 4th division first hit Aleppo and I haven’t stopped sweating since, and I’m afraid I’m sweating even more today.

Erdogan used to was him with oil after coming in touch with foreigner.Erdogan always played in gas fields by lightning matches and through in gas holes.Thinking it is fireworks. Until the white British and American showed him how valuable this resources are.Now the Sultan wants all oil and gas for himself in Middle East.

Jacob Wohl's Nose

Israel struck Damascus night just when a Russian civilian arliner with 172 on board was inbound for Damascus Airport. Syrian Air Defenses almost shot it down, plane had to divert and make emergency landing in Khemimim Airbase.

There is absolutely no low for Israel. They once again risk civilian lives and use human shields to carry out their illegal attacks on a nation without capable air defenses.

IDF have shown they will use civilian airliners as human shields, hide behind unarmed Russian recon planes, and launch airstrikes against airports while civilian airliners are landing. This will not stop until the Russian Airforce deploys the S-400 and much more advanced radars in the South, or patrols the Southern Syrian borders near the Golan almost 24/7.

Israel is known to love picking on defenseless enemies who cant strike back, equipping the SyAAD with S-300 in Damascus and giving them export SU-30 will help the issue without having Russia deploy their own S-400 in Damascus or setup another major airbase (extremely expensive). The way things are going now Israel will continue to strike. Syria’s 1960’s SAM and 1970’s era radars are just not advanced enough.

It appears that HTS is trying to block a SAA advance on Ariha, which is a vital highway junction.
