Syrian Military Source Says Ground Operation In Greater Idlib Could Start At 'Any Minute'

Illustrative image.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies may kick off a ground operation in the northwestern region of Greater Idlib “at any minute,” a Syrian military source told Sputnik on September 12.

The source told the Russian news agency, that al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib, and its Turkish-backed allies escalated their attacks in the last two weeks.

“The fronts of the southern Idlib countryside and northern countryside of Hama witnessed an exceptional escalation during the last two weeks,” the source said. “The armed groups shelled towns and villages located near the frontlines, at the same time, exceptional human, equipment and logistical crowds were monitored, sent by these groups to the axes of Jabal al-Zawiya in the southern countryside of Idlib and al-Ghab Plain in the northwestern Hama countryside.”

According to the source, the recent Russian airstrikes on Greater Idlib were a response to these provocations. The source claimed that Russian warplanes destroyed more than 60 positions of HTS and killed more than 150 militants over the last few days.

A few hours after the release of Sputnik’s reports, Russian warplanes carried out a new wave of airstriks on Greater Idlib.

The airstrikes targeted several positions located near the towns of Darat Izza and Sheikh Salman in the western Aleppo countryside and the town of Kansafra in the southern countryside of Idlib.

The ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey on 5 March 2020, is barely holding up.

A new ground operation in Greater Idlib by the SAA and its allies may lead to a dangerous confrontation with the Turkish military that maintains more than 60 posts, bases and camps across the region.

Когда полетят ракеты, турки утрутся… Да и это похоже правда, недавно новость прошла, что удвоили количество крылатых ракет калибр в Тартусе. Так что ждём. + были уже и турецкие посты в окружении, так что перетопчатся, и самый главный момент, ЭТО СИРИЙСКАЯ ЗЕМЛЯ, а турки со “ползучей” аннексией укатятся восвояси.


работать братья


В моем лучшем переводе с Google на русский язык, мы ДОЛЖНЫ пересечь турецкую границу и прямо к окраинам Искендуруна, и вести переговоры с турками ВНЕ Сирии.


Iskenderan is SYRIAN territory. The thieving bastard Turks are occupying it illegally!


About time for some roasted Turkey.

Mark Dankof

Go, Russia! Go, Assad!

Jetzt scheint Darah gesichert, nun kommt endlich Idlip drann. Wird Zeit…. Die Türken werden eingekreist und belagert, dann hauen die von selbst ab… Al Tanf wird sicher auch belagert, dass keiner der Terroristen mehr rauskommt.


Don’t advertise it,just do it,launch the attack at 3am and wake the bastards up.

Icarus Tanović

Ahahahahah, great one. Agree.

La Rata

Take all this area …the turks will retire to their land…


About time….go all the way to cross the border to just outside of Iskendurun. Then negotiate Turks leaving all of Syria.


In such situation there is bigger chance of Turkey going inside Damascus due to a failed miscalculation leading the turkish into an offensive on all of Syria

Ivan Freely

You give Turkey too much credit.

This could be a ploy by the SAA to mess with the dumb terrorists. On the other hand, maybe all the Russian airstrikes are softening things up for the SAA to move in. Sooner or later, Idlib must be liberated. The dumb terrorists days are numbered.


QUOTE – SYRIAN MILITARY SOURCE SAYS GROUND OPERATION IN GREATER IDLIB COULD START AT ‘ANY MINUTE’… Didn’t the Syrian military say this about 1,500 minutes ago!!!??? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂


When you Al-Qaeda basturds get killed by all sides, then you get all riled up no?……lol


What? He didn’t say at any minute?`In fact didn’t even mention. Any offensive is pipe-dream


This could lead to Turkey expanding her territory and taking Damascus due to a massive miscalculation


3 days and counting… yepp, any minute now. Next year on Easter we’ll see whether it’s still “any minute”

Call me AL

Finish the scumbags and then turn on Turkey and kick them out – or let them start on the US and Kurds properly. Enough now; take Syria back.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
