Syrian L-39 Warplanes Pound Militant Positions In Southeastern Idlib

In the morning of March 7, three L-39 warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) conducted a series of airstrikes on the town of Saraqib in the southeastern Idlib countryside, according to Syrian opposition activists.

The Aero L-39 Albatros is a Czechoslovakian high-performance jet trainer with offensive capabilities. The SyAAF has been using this type of warplanes in close air support and ground attack missions, since 2012.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the airstrikes targeted several positions, hideouts and ammo depots of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria.

“The army’s airstrikes destroyed many hideouts, killed many terrorists, injured others and destroyed their weapons and equipment,” the SANA’s reporter said.

A day earlier, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) destroyed a headquarters of Jaysh al-Izza in southern Idlib killing more than 7 fighters of the group. Later, the army shelled several positions of the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) in northwestern Idlib for the first time in months.

These new attacks by the SAA are likely aimed at deterring militant groups, who continue to violate the Russian-Turkish demilitarized zone agreement.

      The L-39 is a light Czech training aircraft and not very effective in COIN or ground attack and is vulnerable to AAA and MANPADS. It payload very light max 600 kgs and basically 50mm unguided rockets on two under wing hardpoints. Syria needs to get its SU-24 Fencers and SU-22 Fitters in action. Perhaps, the Iranians who operate the same aircraft can overhaul them, as they have done with the 20 ex-Iraqi SU-22. Russia is too busy kissing Turkeys arse after its own dishwasher SU-24 was downed by Turkeys in F-16.

    Pounding is not enough. An offensive is required to get rid of terrorists and Turkey.

    Disqus can thank breitbart for me leaving this platform. soon i will be giving no comments via disqus. Because when a site like breitbart bans you, EVERY comment gets deleted

    • zman

      Wow…I didn’t know that would happen. Are you sure? I went to Breitbart just for laughs and to aggravate the neocons. I left a post questioning their BS and my comment went into ‘pending’ limbo. That was months ago, it’s still ‘pending’. They don’t like posts that are not in step with their myopic view of reality or storyline. AMN is ruining their comment section, as every post has to be ‘moderated'(at least all mine are). Sometimes comments sit for over a week before they are approved and actually posted. Don’t bother asking why, you’ll get no answer. I’ve also had comments here on SF ‘detected as spam'(BS), I think certain posters flagged me as revenge. They say this is being rectified. Apparently that process takes months as well. One post has sat in limbo (“working on getting this corrected”) for 12 days and another 2 months. Why bother? The conversation is stale by now and will not be viewed at all.

        Why would the woman who presided over gutting out great britain by privatising EVERYTHING and selling off council houses with no plans to replace them get her statue vandalised then?

          Must to avoid.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Avoid all Americunt based Jew websites as they don’t like the TRUTH. The Mossad run Debka grannies in a low rent Tel-Aviv apartment even infect your computer with a virus if you visit that shitty site.

      • You can call me Al

        If it is detected as spam here, it means someone has grassed you up (I think).

        As for Breitbart, definitely a hard crowd to connect with over there; after posting a few times, I am not sure anymore if I am a commie, snowflake, mentally ill, Russian, socialist or just a faggot…

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Could be all of the above :) Just kidding, you are OK Al.

          • You can call me Al

            Cheers mate.

        • zman

          Well, more than likely you are all the above…at least over at neocon central anyway. I found out I was a pinko Nazi faggot.

        doesnt matter now, i can comment on breitbart articles through dissenter

        so its all good, i hardly use disqus now unfortunately

      You keep saying this, but what is “the new tab ?”.

  • Jacob Wohl

    you know your airforce is weak when you use trainer jets to carry out airstrikes. talk about an ancient, inadequate military

    • jako

      I bet you would shit your pants “illico presto” the moment you would hear only one of those rockets exploding near you….

      I bet shooting Palestinian children give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside hmmmmm ? How does it feel to live in the largest criminal gathering on this planet …………… The Kosher Nostra. hmmmmmmmm ???? When the day of reckoning comes, and it will, and you will be there to witness it……………all the wailing and gnashing of teeth ain’t gonna help you joo boy………..and what is nice, we even have your picture.

      Air superiority. In WWII in Italy they strapped bombs to fighters because they could.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Even without the benefit of a nose job, that is a accurate statement. Most of Syria’s airforce has been grounded as it suffered great attrition and losses thanks to your headchoppers. Another weakness in Arab airforces is their inability to maintain equipment in top battlefield conditions. They just let new systems deteriorate and leave them out in the open, where weather elements take their toll. Since 1974, when the Pakistanis left, the Syrian Arab Airforce has not been able to operate above 40% operational status. In Iranian, Turkish and Pakistani airforces combat readiness is above 80% on any given day and that is a lot of sortie capacity as the PAF amply demonstrated last week.
