Syrian troops have liberated 7 villages from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in southern Idlib, according to pro-government sources.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF), led by the Tiger Forces, took control over the villages of Mashrafat al Khanazir, Ard az-Zurzur, Sham al-Hawa, Umm al-Khalakhil, Qulayat at Tuwaybah and Niha. According to local sources, a major part of these villages has been captured thanks to the massive air and artillery strikes on the militants’ positions.

Pro-opposition sources argue that an advance of the SAA and the NDF had led to multiple casualties among civilians, but little photos or videos are provided to confirm these claims.

In the coming days, the Syrian military will continue pressuring Hayat Tahrir al-Sham on the southern Idlib front and most likely liberate more villages in the area.

    I for myseld think that at this time developments in Harasta are more important.

    A scarcity of news on this battlefield.

    Often on this site it means matters are not going well for SAA when news is lacking.

    • Barba_Papa

      I concur.

      But then again, what happens there in no way whatsoever will impact the outcome of the war, like it did with the Ramouseh artillery academy in Aleppo, or the race to Deir Ezzor.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        SouthFront has a lot to keep up on with these new latest developments , things are moving fast with Idlib as I surmised. The terrorists started this front and are unable to finish it so the SAA and Coalition is knocking the shit out them everywhere, for territory with 50 km2 freed in 1 day. The SAA are back to their positions in Golan Heights since the first time in 2011. Just too much news to report on so hard to follow Khan Sheikoun and the region there will soon return to SAA and Damascus control. Like I said too much to follow with the current pace going.

      In this front the Tiger Forces are advancing and taking over territory for good and it is shown than HTS and friends can’t hold Idlib. In Harasta there is a battle going on for a few building blocks, it is more cinematic but not more important.

      Not to mention the Beit Jinn pocket which is basically cleared.

    • You are a great comedian! Jihadmin is infamous for delaying showing SAA successes and for splashing Green Paint about at the flimsiest excuse of some Salafist FanBoy tweeting nonsense.

    • Ono&Dsz

      I agree with you. We need more news from Harasta.

      • Gregory Louis

        That situation is complicated….it’s not like Southfront’s like ANNA NEWS who has men on the ground at the frontlines reporting

    • Eskandar Black

      Cant wait till someone gets the dutchnational terrorist in an airstrike.

      • §âm

        Dutchnational is very rational and he does make sense. Don’t call someone a terrorist because he has opinion that is different than yours.

        • Eskandar Black

          that is false, he expresses sympathies for terrorists and Kurds. and you are likely one of his fake identities.

          • §âm

            I hate the murderer Assad, does that make me a terrorist too?

          • Eskandar Black

            makes you a biased fool

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Why are you such a biased pansy that believes the BS from the mainstream media , oh I forgot stooges like you are employed by keeping this anti Assad rhetoric going.

          • §âm

            I lived in syria i know what i am talking about.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Just makes you a foreigner who believes the lies , your government has much to do with the murders in Syria as they supported the Muslim Brotherhood. My take is very different considering that I know many people from there that grew up there , but chose to leave as the Muslim brotherhood was re-emerging under western influence in the region.

          • §âm

            Wow, ok I’ll tell you the truth
            I am Syrian.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Wow ,you don’t say much as you stop it at Syrian , that could mean anything but what it is obviously supposed to mean. Syria is a country of Multi Ethnic origins as Kurds are of umpteen different backgrounds and not all as interrelated as one would think as they just assimilate all tribes still today.

          • §âm

            It means i know better than you about what’s happening in my country.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Know you are trying to attempt sarcasm , but I look at the multi dimensional elements of everything since there are more aspects at play than most would believe. You were told this is about OIL and Gas which is so far from the truth as many people would believe.

            Here is another rejoinder I could add that your opinion is more important than other Syrians who are in constant contact with family members over there. I talk to them everyday and they are still worried and concerned because they see how the media here portrays everything and can’t understand why the media would lie constantly if they didn’t have an agenda.

          • §âm

            Every news source has an agenda
            Assad is a murderer and i have family members who were arrested and tortured for “suspected” protesting.. they didn’t even have evidence…

    • palebluedot

      Not to worry. Your boys are still waving their black flags over most of Idlib.

      We’ll see.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Well another bunch of dead Terrorists by the SMF of Damascus (Police counter terrorism unit) these are same guys who have protected Damascus and continue to protect and 888 unit is also operating in the area of Harasta as the SAA still captures more villages in creating the 2 pockets.

  • Eskandar Black

    It seems that they are making a push for the air base, carving out a jihadi pocket that will help secure the Aleppo highway. There is potential to develop the operation towards Khan Sheikhoun, in order to surround and destroy the jihadi southern command in Idlib. So far, in a very predictable way, the SAA is pushing to cut the jihadi pocket in 2, but they are 60 km away from their objective, 2018 just started, but i dont think jihadis in Idlib will make it to Ramadan.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      That’s where you are wrong they are utilizing the Special Police Operations which has been based around Damascus to attack and remove the Jihadis and another group under Colonel Afi are working in the Harasta area. There were another several villages were taken in the area there where they split that pocket and are close to making another 2 pockets , believe ISIS will be transferred to further north as that is their goal, just not the SAA way.
