On June 24, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) repelled an attack of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) on its positions around the village of Zlin in the northern Hama countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

In response to the attack, the SAA artillery shelled several positions of HTS and the FSA in the northern Hama countryside. The SANA reported that several vehicles of the militants were destroyed as a result of the shelling.

Hours later, the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NFL) acknowledged that more than four of its fighters, including a TOW ATGM operator, were killed by the SAA in the northern Hama countryside. A sources in the SAA also told SouthFornt that two soldiers of the SAA were killed while repelling the attack.

HTS and several Turkish-backed FSA groups stepped up their attacks against the SAA and its allies in the northern Hama countryside after the establishment of several Turkish observation posts there earlier this year. Usually, the Russian Aerospace Forces respond to such violations of the de-escalation zone with airstrikes.

      Is it really that inconceivable in your black and white view of the world that there may be numerous sides, different types of evil, and various other forms of corruption besides “satanic zionist jews”? The Turks are scumbags that are pursuing their own agenda of Turkish imperialism, restoration of the caliphate/sultanate, and are likely opportunists that get in bed with corrupt Arab, Western, and Russian politicians for short term geopolitical gains. But I would hardly call them “satanic jews”.

      Seriously, some of you crackpots on this site have mental issues and extreme paranoia with the kind of grandiose “alternative” narratives that attempt to oversimplify world geopolitics rather than analyzing what is essentially very complex violent tribal human behavior that has been around for hundreds of thousands of years.

      Sorry, but “satanic jews” are not behind every fucking headline or violent incident happening in the world today. Some of this shit is honestly cringeworthy garbage that is just embarassing to read.

    If the Russians don’t restart to sustain harder the SAA, this sh*t in Syria will continue at least a decade from now on and will be like Afghanistan

      The Russians are hitting harder with airstrikes and we will always see continual rotations of their aerospace force in Syria, they fly longer and don’t need the same down time as the US aircrap does.
