Syrian Army Shelled Militant Positions In Southern Idlib With ‘Heavy Rockets’

Support SouthFront

On August 27, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shelled militants’ positions in the southwestern Idlib countryside with heavy rockets.

According to opposition activists, the rocket strikes targeted positions in the outskirts of the town of al-Almaouzrah. Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other terrorist groups are known to be active near the town.

The strikes were likely carried out with BM-27 Uragan or BM-30 Smerch heavy rocket launchers. The BM-27 has a range of 37 km, while the BM-30 can hit targets 90 km away. Both systems can launch a variety of rockets, some armed with anti-tank munitions.

The rocket strikes were likely a response to recent provocations by Greater Idlib militants. A day earlier, the militants shelled civilian areas in northeastern Hama. An army post in southern Idlib was also targeted.

The al-Fateh al-Mubeen Operations Room, which is led by HTS, is responsible for all the recent attacks on SAA troops in Greater Idlib.

Some of al-Fateh al-Mubeen factions, including the National Front for Liberation, are receiving direct military support from Turkey. Ankara is apparently using the militants to deter the SAA in a blatant violation of the March 5 agreement with Moscow.

Russian weapons firepower on display. Obliterate the Wahhabi pigs.

Zionism = EVIL

Things are about to get serious in Syria. Not looking good for the headchopper cowardly cunts or their Americunt and Zionist masters.

Just in case the head choppers think that the Syrians are occupied with the move over the Euphrates.

There days are numbered.

Zionism = EVIL

In eastern Euphrates the headchopper cunts are hiding behind their Americunt masters, but if you look at the map, the new bridges being built would cut them in half. Iran is rushing in manpower with PMU units on the Iraqi side to squeeze them, the al Qaim crossing was the key, which Iranians, known for their tenacity hung on to, despite all kinds of Zionist losers and Americunt cowards attacks.

Those bridges are a sure sign that the Russians are coming, and the US will be leaving. All on the same day Putin announced a new security unit ready to enter Belarus, me thinks that Russia feels strong enough to clear out the Jewhadis for good. I can’t wait for the Tehran Thanksgiving Day Parade, where they showcase all those top rank Russian and Chinese military equipment.



What Bridges? any links?


The Turks should stop paying the terrorists. That would correct a lot of the problem without a shot being fired.


Yes, and Israel should stop being a zionist devilish entity, and USA should stop being ruled by the previously mentioned zionist lobby. That would solve all the problems lol, but it’s just not going to happen on it’s own.


Probably the recoil force from firing these heavy rockets prevents SAA from moving forward and take Idlib.

johnny rotten

Just a reminder of how much it’s going to rain on them, if they want to get the message, last warning!!!
