Syrian Army Retaliates To Militant Attacks On Christian Town In Northern Hama

On February 1, radical militants targeted military positions and residential areas in the town of Mahardah in the northern Hama countryside with heavy machine guns in a clear violation of the Russian-Turkish demilitarized zone agreement.

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) retaliated to this violation by shelling several positions of the militants in the opposition-held town of Arbain, few kilometers north of Mahardah.

“The army strikes killed several terrorists and injured others, some of their weapons and positions were also destroyed,” the SANA’s reporter in Hama said.

Radical groups, such as Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and Jaysh al-Izza, attack Mahardah on a regular basis. Last September, a rocket attack on the Christian town killed nine civilians, mainly women and children.

The demilitarized zone agreement has apparently failed to put an end to these attacks. Turkey claims that members of the US-led coalition are trying to sabotage the agreement. However, the situation on the ground suggests that Ankara is not fulfilling its commitments.

Just filthy Turcos not honouring their promise to Putin and stiffing Christians as always.Turkey needs to be broken up into statelets -as per leaked Pentagon Plans-the sooner the better.


Any leads to these ‘Pentagon Plans’.

Brother Ma

They came out a few years ago. Maps showing new states inTurkey. A lot was the new Kurdistan. Part was an Alevi stan. Part was a new Constantinopolitan state along the Dardenelles and part was a Pontus /Armenian joint state?
Look them up on the web. They usually say they are from “thinktanks” hahah
If you find, please put a map up in comments too for the others.


We won’t be having any more of that with Trump. Maybe if the CIA had succeeded in overthrowing Erdogan, but certainly not now :)

Can you imagine: One NATO member running a coup against another. President Trump needs to deport Fetula Gulen and let him stand trial in Turkey for high treason.

Brother Ma

It was done before. Us was quite happy having Greece and Turkey killing each other in 1974.
As for Gulen fcuck him ! Gulen and Erdogan were pals for most of their lives and people like me do not forget it.

Hang them both high like Menderes! Flynn too!


sounds like you know more about this than I do.

Brother Ma

I know a little about that intra- Nato war.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
