Syrian Army Strikes Terrorists In Southern Idlib With Heavy Rockets In Response To Another Attack On Civilians (Video)

Support SouthFront

On April 6, one civilian was killed in a rocket attack on the government-held part of the northern Hama countryside. The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said that the attack targeted the towns of al-Karim, al- Aziziyah and al-Rasif.

No group has announced its responsibility for the attack so far. However, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its radical allies are known for conducting such attacks on a daily basis.

The SANA said that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) responded to the attack by striking militants’ hideouts and vehicles in the towns of Jarjnaz, al-Tamanah, Kafr Nabl and Tramla in the southern Idlib countryside

According to pro-opposition sources, the SAA carried out its attack with the BM-27 Uragan and BM-30 Smerch heavy rocket launchers. The BM-27 has a range of 37km, while the more advance BM-30 can hit targets 90km away. Both systems can launch cluster rockets armed with anti-tank munitions.

The situation around Idlib could escalate further in the upcoming few hours. Russian warplanes may carry out a new wave of airstrikes to deter the militants in a move similar to that carried out a day earlier.

It looks like this will be the situation from now on for ever and ever since terrorists have found safe havens zones at Idlib, Al-Tanf, and east Euphrates river.

No, its not.

It had better not!! and I suspect that the Syrian Arab Army will not stand for it nor will their Commander in Chief nor 95% of the People of Syria. Clear them out of the Country and dump them back into Turkey or Saudi Arabia or Chechnya or wherever else they came from ….. France, Belgium, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt. They can have their choice: a quick bullet to the head in Idlib or a long slow death in a camp in the middle of the Dessert for the entire of their lives.
