On February 3, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured several buildings around the local administration office in the northwestern part of the Irbin district east of the Syrian capital Damascus, according to pro-government sources. The SAA also captured several buildings in the southern part of the Harasta district north of Irbin.

Pro-government activists reported that the SAA had destroyed a media center of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement in Irbinwith Golan heavy rockets. Warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) supported the SAA attack and conducted several airstrikes on positions of Faylaq al-Rahman and Ahrar al-Sham in Irbin and Harasta.

From its side, Faylaq al-Rahman announced that its fighters are currently trying to repel the attack of the SAA on Irbin. However, the group didn’t release any details about the ongoing clashes there.

An officer of the SAA told South Front that the SAA is currently trying to reach the road between the distrcits of Irbin and Mudayrah. If the SAA achieves this goal, it will be able to cut all the supply lines of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement and Faylaq al-Rahman around the Armored Vehicles Base northwest of Mudayrah.

    The attack of the SAA will probably fail because of well fortified anti government positions. Like we have seen in Jobar, harasta and Ain Aarma Frontlines. But there will be some gains of course but, it will be at a heavy cost that makes them not worth it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/826249bbcb6a824e276b7ac40c064a818b9d95830c097ed7ae4096032cd97bc2.jpg

      Really and do not think so. Although, agree, there will be a tough fight, if the moderates do not hold up their White Flags.

        I suppose the front lines are too close for thermobarics ?

        Syria “insider” is a well known terrorist supporter, not worth a response. He keeps spreading rubbish propaganda, such as that HTS successfully had taken back Abu Al Duhur Airbase after VBIED attacks a few days ago etc. . The funny thing is that even though every time his statements turn out to be rubbish, he still seems to spread terrorist propaganda with great enthusiasm (he might well write some of that fiction himself and be paid in Shekels) – so there is only one logical explanation: Syrian insider is part of them.

          Thanks. I just popped over to have a look at Veteran’s Today and there was an interesting article, concerning the Chemical Weapons, that Mattis is blaming on Syria. It might interest you, particularly how they labelled the shell.

            They are called “Hell Bombs” these were used mercilessly on civilians and soldiers alike. There are old documentaries and videos showing their exclusive use by the “moderates Head Choppers” only made in Ukraine currently this missile and Chlorine Bomb.

            Absolutely sick. Those who supply scream the loudest, that it was the other side. How on earth can you wish that on any innocent citizen?

        The thing is a knob, ignore him.

        • AM Hants

          Cheers. I find some perverse pleasure in feeding the trolls. Really must sort out the addiction. As it is so boring.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Yes it it gives one a certain pleasure of eviscerating them!

          • AM Hants

            Sad but true.

  • AM Hants

    Good luck Syria. Does that mean The White Helmets, were using the media centre and took the hit?

    • FlorianGeyer
      • AM Hants

        Must admit, I would too. Or even the building, with various White Helmets scattered around. I wonder how many will miss out attending the Oscars, and dining with Clooney, owing to the good work of the Syrian Army?

        • FlorianGeyer

          I heard that the Mayor of London has invited them to take part in a Diversity Parade instead of Trumps visit. :)

          Although if it clashed with the Gay Pride Parade , wearing their builders white helmets might cause some seriously sore arse’s. Especially if they have piles.

          • AM Hants

            Haha, I can actually believe it.

          • You can call me Al

            Scroll down on the comments a small distance and have a look at those videos…… https://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/3-february-se-idlib-russian-strikes-ongoing-heavy-cluster

            Russian strategy has always seemed to be balanced and ‘ reactive’ . I suppose this is to mitigate the shrill cries from the US/UK media with their fake ‘Russian Aggression’ meme.

            Every abuse by the US Coalition and its proxy terror gangs has resulted in another headache for the US/Israeli terror planners :)

    When one talks of supply lines, how ongoing long has this war raged, and just who and where from are the supplies coming. When one sees even Tins of AK and 7.62×56 mg rounds stacked in piles we could say maybe backpackers after black market purchase but when we find lap top controlled armed drones and advanced NATO missels and rockets. Highly explosive chemicals not easily manufactured packed in what seems unlimited vehicle borne rocket launchers, those are not black market bought.
    US/NATO controls all the non Russian China small arms manufacturing facilities in Egypt, Africa and primarily old Yugoslavic Balkan plants.
    Besides US arms we find Finland, SWEDEN, French, German and Netherlands oldest and modern anti tank/armor and air missels.
    Those nations are making billions in sales.
    US and allies have been pouring yearly 10’s of millions in arms to Iraq Kurds.
    In the past Israel has not been adverse of selling black and open market their oldest models of US supplied armaments to anyone with shekels, and then recieving modernized gear from US for free
    Until those out of country supply lines can be eliminated Syria will always face enemy terrorist in its lands.

    1960’s
    “Even though Israhell already enjoys a clear military
    superiority over it’s Arab neigbhours, singly or combined, acquisition
    of a Nuclear capability would greatly enhance Israhell’s “SECURITY”…..
    Israhell’s policy toward it’s neighbours would become more rather than
    l;ess tough. Israhell would seek to exploit the psychological advantages
    of it’s nuclear capability to INTIMIDATE the Arabs and to prvent them
    from making “trouble on their their borders>”. In spite of this
    assessment by the USA, they were still giving them more HAWKs
    antiaircraft missiles, which was advanced at the time,.USA still
    continues to over weaponise this very tiny strip of land agaibst the
    less armed ARABS? CIA Sherman Kent’s report.
