Syrian War Report – July 4, 2019: Dozens Militants Killed In Airstrikes On Greater Idlib

Six improvised-explosive devices (IEDs) exploded on a part of the Kirkuk–Ceyhan oil pipeline passing near Iraq’s Mosul on July 3. The IEDs attack caused a major fire on the 970km long pipeline with a capacity of 1,600 thousand barrels per day. According to the Iraqi side, the fire was contained after a short period of time.

This was a second attack on oil sector-related facilities in Iraqi within a month. In June, a rocket struck the Burjesia residential and operations headquarters west of Basra, which is home to a number of international oil giants, including US firm ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell PLC, and Italian Eni SpA. Then, mainstream media rushed to blame “Iranian proxies”, but no evidence to confirm these claims were provided.

At least 50 members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, the National Front for Liberation and the Turkistan Islamic Party were eliminated by Syrian and Russian airstrikes on Khan Shaykhun, Hobit, Madaya and other targets in Greater Idlib, according to pro-government sources.

At the same time, units affiliated with the  al-Qaeda-affilated “Wa Harid al-Muminin” operations room raided positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in al-Masharie in northern Hama. According to militants 7 SAA soldiers were killed. Additionally, 2 children were killed by militant shelling on the settlements of Aziziyah and al-Rasif.

Late on July 3, a booby-trapped motorcycle exploded in the city center of al-Suwyada. The governorate’s health director told the SANA that three civilians were killed and seven others were injured as a result of the terrorist attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, yet. However, ISIS remains the main suspect. The terrorist group’s cells are reportedly highly active in the Damascus desert, north of al-Suwyada. Comprehensive operations in these desert are not effective as long as militants always have an opportunity to hide from the SAA in the US-controlled area of al-Tanf. In turn, the US-led coalition demonstrated that, while it is not seeking to combat ISIS presence, it’s ready to attack any government units entering the area.

    Syria needs a good active leadership to unite and give wake up call to entire nation and address about problems of Syria and the world attitude towards Syria. Assad should have good relations with regional countries. The Assad silence gives birth to many doubts.

    • David Parker

      I would say that Assad has his hands full as it is. He is still fighting for his life against NATO, Turkey, and everything else the Zionists can throw at him.

      • jerry

        Zionists have zero control over Nato and less over Turkey. Israel is far less concerned about Assad per se as it is about his open door to Iran, which is constantly threatening to destroy Israel.

    • Gregory Casey

      Assad silence? Have you seen the Video posted Wednesday 3rd July on Twitter by me & others showing President Assad visiting a Christian Assyrian School : the Students reaction to him was truly heart-warming and that Video should be rammed down the throats of the US Zio-Con psuedo Christians who support Trump & BiBi like sheep going over a cliff.

      • Rob

        That’s not enough. Assad should address to his nation every week that for how long they would wait to retaliate to Western powers that doing terrorism not only in Syria rather in entire Middle East. He should wake up his nation otherwise this war will be continue for ever. Syria is a state and is a nation they should not depend upon Russia, Iran, Hizbollah etc 100%. If Syrian nation together do 90% then 10% other friendly nation will support them. Learn from Iran and Pakistan.

        • Sinbad2

          Assad is obviously busy, why don’t you wake up the Syria you think is asleep?

    • jerry

      Assad can’t have decent relations with ohter Arab countries so long as he provides an open door to Iran. And he needs Iran to stay on top of his own people.

  • Hide Behind

    I would like to ask, with what nations other than Russia and China, and or Venezuela and North Korea, can Assad have friendly relations with?
    Every Middle East Nation leadership in partnership with US tried to overthrow Assad and his government, everyone?
    Isis Al’ Quida and a few other Terrorist groups were armed and Financed by not just US but all NATO and surrounding M.E. nations as well,
    All nations wether through fear or for pay joined in the US Embargo, economic warfare.
    Israel continues on an almost daily attack upon Syria and the UN nations do nothing.
    US says Israel owns Golan Heights and world says O K.
    Turkey steal parts of Syria with Assads ally Russia and Iran agreement, and Russia agreed to US forming a highly armed and internationally financed Kurdish theft of Syrian land.
    Every Military Force within NATO has killed Syrian Military and had their special ops using Syrians for target practice.
    Jordan allows huge terrorist training camp and supply center to be built by NATO and its midget butt kissing King gets rewarded with Billions and a token alliance of NATO wanna be status,
    India has sent warships into Gulf as part of US Naval Power.
    There is world wide war ongoing led by US dollars that are backed by military force, and it is That US Empire that says who is friend or foe, and no matter those individuals who debate issue, their national political and financial leaders follow US orders, and profit while doing so.
    Of course tho

      Assad needs Iran,Hisbollah, Yemen,Iraq and Libya. Somalia will hijack all USA,France, Britain, ISIS and Turkey terrorists.The test are traitors Erdogan donkey fucker backstabbers.

  • gustavo

    Bombing without an offensive on Idlib area is just wasting of time since terrorists can reorganized and increasess their numeber in attacked areas.

    • Xoli Xoli

      Russia inform Israel and Coalition allies before bombing.So this serve as quick relocation and filming of incoming jets which are fast then sound.

  • AM Hants

    Well it was ‘Independence Day’, just did not work out as the US wished. Well done Syria.

    What did the US wish? Were they hoping, on the anniversary of the USS Vincennes, taking down the Iranian passenger flight, that Iran would take out one of their strategically placed, planes, snooping in the wrong direction?

      Rather than Italian Observers laying out the illegality of US_Israeli Attacks on Syria, they’d be far better off causing the Italian Government to refuse to renew EU Sanctions against Syria.

  • Gregory Casey

    The sooner that figure of 50 HTS Terrorists being sent to reside with Be’elzebub for all of Eternity changes to 5,000, the better for all concerned.

  • Sinbad2

    At last, some Arabs seem to be targeting the real enemy, the western oil companies.

  • Valery Grigoryev

    I would like to ask only one very simple question:
    why Gibraltar is still British actually, not Spanish – and Crimea “is not Russian”, while actually it was always be (from 1783), and now is???:)
