The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has repelled a large-scale attack on its newly-captured positions in the strategic town of Kafr Nabudah and its outskirts in the northern Hama countryside.

Fighters of Hay’at Tahrir al-Shame (HTS), the former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria, led the strike force that included Turkish-backed groups from the National Front for Liberation (NFL) and the National Syrian Army (NSA).

In the first hours of the attack, which began in the night of May 21, HTS and its allies stormed the town and captured a key hill near it. However, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces intervened right away, forcing the terrorists to withdraw from town.

Some positions in Kafr Nabudah’s outskirts are reportedly still under the HTS control. However, the SAA is working to recapture them as soon as possible.

According to pro-government sources, dozens of terrorists were killed in the failed attack. More than 10 vehicles were also destroyed.

The attack came after a 72-hour ceasefire, that allowed HTS and its allies to deploy additional forces in northern and northwestern Hama. It remains unclear why the SAA and its allies remain committed to the ceasefire, despite the repeated violations, which included rocket attacks on Russia’s Hmeimim air base.

      This is why Arabs cant depend on Russia. They will side with what Israel wants.

      I sometimes think Putin is trying to be liked so hard by the west so he can immigrate to Florida for retirement. What other possibility is there?
      Russia is in a full fledged hot war against NATO and they don’t even know it.
      How has the minds of the Russia people been so deceived to practice peace while the world practices war on them. It is bizarre.

      • John Whitehot

        sometimes i think you really believe there’s even one person in this world that you convinced with this soliloquy.

    • Concrete Mike

      whats wrong with a tactical retreat?

      would wasting your men and materials be worth holding to some empty buildings?
      No its not

      you pull back and let hts waste their men and materials.

      But whatever, your following a script, not me.

      Have a nice day regurgitating propaganda thar benefits the military industrial complex and no one else!!!

    • Arnte

      Oh so it’s Putin’s fault because SAA is bunch of incompetent cowards that can’t defend one shitty town – and they knew that counterattack is coming, even where, when and how many terrorists; SAA had more than enough time to prepare their defenses, bring their reinforcements and yet their failed… btw when was the last time Arabs actually won a real war? 700 years ago?

    Rebells have retaken Kafr Nabuda.Around 50 regime soldiers taken out of action.(Both killed and injured).They captured 2 T72 and 1 BMP,lots of other gear.Brig.General Hassan Habib and Col.Abdulkerim Suleyman have been captured inside the town.Tel Hawash and Sejh Idris also captured.Rebells closing on Qalaat Al-Mudiq.Only serious resistence is provided by russian airstrikes that slow the advance down.

  • (ง ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)ง

    kafr nabudah is captured by rebels, fake

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    because this is the way they trick the turkish backed forces to come out in the open with no civilians around them as a buffer. You know the expression give the idiot enough rope and he manage to hang itself?

    • Concrete Mike

      Hahaha well said, nice to see someone that sees the same thing I do.

    • John Whitehot

      agree, but the “turkish backed forces” stopped being turkish backed when they joined HTS.

      i don’t think Turkey can do anything for them now, they chose to join israel and the US and are now appreciating what it means.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        if they are in idlip and afrin they are turkish backed forces, supply by turks and lead by them, same as it is happening in libya. Now if you want to believe that are backed by israel and usa, then do so.

    • Too many Syrian soldiers were killed according to Al-Masdar!

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        well both sides they going to claim they kill scores of each other that is part of the war games now days. And yes soldiers when at war do get killed why are you so surprised? Unless you are with the idea only the bad guys die in war.

        • Well, you point out that the Syrian side strategically made the ceasefire in order to lure in and kill them. I just pointed out that too many losses for your point to be true!

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            not exactly the cease fire is been imposed on them by russia. Same as the russians cancel all the movements of the SAA after they clear what they had and began to move their army to take idlip, after the deals they make with the turks and also released from duty all the veterans who was the main force of the tigers in winning the war with the aid of Hez on the ground.

            Now the SAA is mostly new recruits that have very little experience as well the russian airforce is no longer in the game of helping effectively SAA. The strategy is the russians they make it and is what they have said as to why.

  • Drinas

    Typical Russian two-faced incompetence. The Syrians wanted to continue the attack having the momentum but the new favorite Russian ally, the Turks, asked for a ceasfire in order for the jihadis to regroup and be strengthened by Turkish proxies. Russia agreed-this is the result. F..k the Kremlin’s diplomacy and its “western partners”.

    • Wolfgang Wolf

      let them regroup. so you can hit them easier.

      • As many as 30 soldiers were killed in the first attack nighttime according to Al-Masdar!

    • John Whitehot

      nope.
      the result is HTS went to offensive and lost the war.

      ofc, can’t expect you cheering about scumbags losing zio-wars.

    • John Whitehot

      seems that you failed as usual.

      • Edvin R

        Well…if you see their weaponary and check the Turkish army spec-ops uniforms and battle helmets you will understand why i wonder?

        • John Whitehot

          you wonder, because the jihadist propaganda who took the pic wants you to do so.

          with me, they fail.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Putins ceased fire terrorists rearmament and attack.Bullets doesn’t have friendship or knows superpower.

  • Saddam Hussein

    This whole truce was a mistake, it gave these terrorists a chance to regroup and get supplies from Turkey.

  • klove and light

    again and again and again..so here we go again…..the truth

    ALL NATIONS THAT RECOGNIZE THE ILLEGAL SATANIC ENTITY NAMED ISRAEL ARE PART OF AN AGENDA.
    A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT WITH JERUSALEM AS ITS CAPITAL UNDER SATANIC JEWISH LEADERSHIP.
    those part of the Agenda include…USA,uk,eu,russia,china etc…..

    think think think

    which countries are beiing battered now, or where the last 10 years and which are the new war Arenas in the near future……These are all nations that DO NOT RWECOGNIZE THE ILLEGAL SATANIC ENTITY NAMED ISRAEL.

    Now to the beloved Russia of smart asses…..learn history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1917 was the year when Zionist jews conquered Russia with the help of Germany…….ist all open in the history books..no fucking secret at all……..ALL leading pricks of creating UDSSR were Zionist jews…all of them…..they all lived abroad(what a fucking surprise), either in switzerland,new York or London…

    and due to an Agreement with the Germans, which were Fighting on 2 fronts at that time(west front Britain,france, and later USA), east front – the army of the russian zsar……. the Germans came to an understanding with the zionst jews….which was the following….we help u get into Russia through a sealed off Train including 20 Million in Gold bars(1917) and once u got rid of the zsar u will then stop the war at the eastern front.
    Check fucking history…exactly to the mark, this is what happened with the so called Peace treaty of Brest-Litovsk in March 3 1918.Funny enough this coincides with the british governmnets Balfour declaration for the creation of a jewish state on Novenmber 2 1917!!!

    From 1920- 1935 (read it , it is all there) over 30+ Million indigenous russians were murdered by them Zionist jews in Russia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ever since, Zionist jews have FULL CONTROL OVER RUSSIA…..

    The Agreements did not stopn 1918………..the biggest scam in “modern” history, is the Agreement between Hitlers Party NSDAP and Zionists starting in 1925.
    Thats where the word NAZI Comes from…….
    NA stands for hitlers Party NSDAP
    ZI stands for ZIONISM
    hence
    NAZI

    and the deal was simple….u(hitlers Germany) help us(Zionists) get the jews from europe to palestina…

    well only there is 1 big enormous Problem…..not ONE fucking jew once to leave good old europe for a fucking desert area …not ONE……so u have to make them wanna leave…..by making their life as misrabel as possible…….for that the Germans got all the wall street Money they wanted and needed to establish ana army again……..read history books…….The grandfather of Bush jr….Prescott BUSh worked for Brown Brothers Harriman….and it is in all out in the fucking open–no secret
    In 1942…Bush lost all his assets in the Union Banking Corporation for ..
    TRADING WITH THE ENEMY(Germany)
    There is a great book from the Journalist Eva Schweitzer ” America and the Holocaust”.. were in great Detail she explains with Facts how the bush and others profited from slave labour during the reign of NSDAP.On nov. 2 , 2004 a class Action lawsuit against George .w bush worth 400 Million Dollars was brought in due to his grandfathers(prescott) Investment and Holding in the silesian american corporation that used slave Workers from ausschwitz……it is all there wide open…

    lie upon lie upon lie

    just like in 2019……..or 2018..etc…

    cvhemical attack here
    chemical attack there…..

    fuck why bother writing …fuck this..

    if u believe in good USA or bad USA or good Russia or bad Russia or good uk or bad uk u are totally lost.

    and the dices Keep on rolling

    apparently this is much bigger than the article makes it.

    According to several sources, Nusra employed hundreds (more close to 1000 than 100) men, dozens of vehicles and tanks and launched a massive preparatory artillery strike (targeting Hmeynim with around 20 rockets, which were all intercepted).

    The Syrian army handed their asses to them so heavily ( hundreds of killed ragheads and tens of destroyed technics) that things like “Some positions in Kafr Nabudah’s outskirts are reportedly still under the HTS control” sound like that little histerical voice from below barely holding up breaking up in tears.

    Those users which are versed with tools like twitter, instagram etc will probably realize that the HTS defeat in this instance is epochal.

    There must be vigilance though, as this could be the moment some “chemical attacks” happen, as with everytime the Syrian people has defeated this scum in the past.

    • Edvin R

      There is only one issue with your claims…some proof? On the otherhand the rebels have shown dead bodies,both destroyed and captured vehicles (some even with “Tigers” insignia) and even captured generals.If the battle were that big of a loss for the rebels…how the hell are they advancing into Qualat al-Mudiq atm?

  • Kell McBanned

    Give a truce to the Terrs then lose, when will the SAA learn?
