Turkish-led Forces Fail To Capture Naryab As Syrian Army Makes More Gains In Greater Idlib

Click to see the full-size image

The Syrian Army has repelled an attack by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other radical Idlib groups on the town of Naryab in the western part of Idlib province.

The attack supported by Turkey started early on February 11 as a part of the wider campaign to capture Saraiqb. Turkey provided the attack with a limited artillery support and a Syrian military helicopter was shot down by some ‘mysterious’ MANPAD. The Turkish Defense Ministry even claimed in an official statement via Twitter that the town had been captured. However, Turkish-backed forces failed to make and secure any real gains.

Pro-government sources claim that Naryab was a trap and the Syrian Army ambushed militants that entered the town. Regardless, the failure of the attack is another major fail for the Erdogan government in Idlib.

Additionally, government forces reportedly entered  the areas of Khan al-Asal and Kafr Nouran, where clashes between the Syrian Army and militants erupted. Earlier, the Syrian Army liberated the Rashidin 4 district in western Aleppo from militants.

Meanwhile, airstrikes of the Syrian Air Force hit the area near Turkish positions near the village of Qaminas in eastern Idlib. Nonetheless, reports about supposed Turkish casualties in the strike remain unconfirmed.

The US is already here to support innocent Turkish troops attacked by Assad forces in Idlib:

  • Willy Van Damme

    Mike Pompeo is about the lowest life one can imagine. Condolences for the family of th Fallen Turkish soldiers. Howe dare he.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Erdo should reflect that the US tried to assassinate him once and the US will do so again.

      If Erdo is killed , it will open the door for a real US bought and paid for stooge. The stooge is Gulen.

  • Selbstdenker

    Pompeo always lies. So, what does Turkey made out of his condolences?

  • God

    I really wish Russia would decide to intervene in Syria in a proportional way as Turkey is doing, those war-lords, terrorists and imperialist would have a sip of their own medicine

    • Wayne Nicholson

      Russia should do what right for the Russian people …. nobody else. How does Russia getting into a full blown war with a NATO member benefit Russians? Wars are costly. Every sortie, every missile, every bombs costs $thousands if not $millions. Warships off the coast cost $ hundreds of thousands a day to operate without even firing a shot. Even a skirmish with Turkey could cost into the $billions and if it gets out of control it could bring a world war.

      • Josiah Gaxx Isaboke

        That Turkish dictator needs to be taught a lesson so he doesn’t think the Ottoman empire can come back! War is not pretty but a line has to be drawn somewhere…This war has dragged on for way too long. Syria has to establish its authority and sovereignty for it to be able to establish elections in the future. It was the same in Lebanon when they had a civil war. Turkey being a hardhead won’t solve anything….NATO wants a status quo because they sell weapons to Turkey…Simple! Not because they love Turkey so much

        • Wayne Nicholson

          It’s easy to say Turkey needs to be taught a lesson when it’s not your money being spent or your children tasked with teaching the lesson. Russia isn’t a rich country and no one’s paying them to be world hegemon. if Russia decides they want to teach Erdogan a lesson then fine but they are by no means obligated to do so any more than South Africa or Argentina are.

          • Josiah Gaxx Isaboke

            Didn’t Putin save Erdogan’s behind when HIS MILITARY wanted to overthrow him…He has this dilutions of grandeur and it’s not even Russia that is going to cut him to size…Syrian Army will. They have come a long way. I remember when they were taking Aleppo this rat cried the same way…What did they do?They çhut up! The few pockets of resistance remaining are being dealt with…SYRIA IS FOR SYRIANS and Russia is just helping…Today the patrols that Russia does with Turkey in Afrin what happened…The Turks didn’t show up and Russians went along with the patrols. This war has gone way too long and it’s time it came to an end where Syria establishes authority and organises free elections…Just like Lebanon did after a long civil war

      • Assad must stay

        turkey has invaded syria, they are the aggressors here, not russia or syria

    • jorge

      God, Russia has long ago intervened in Syria, and I’m going to tell you a secret: China too. Remember a NATO’s fleet in 2015 close to the Syrian coasts, and the Russian and Chinese answer.

    • Assad must stay

      well if you are God, why dont you make it happen? ;)

      • God

        isn’t easy being God, I have to do God things all day and by the end I never have time to feed my dinosaurs, gosh I hope they are alright

        • Assad must stay

          i thought they went extinct 65 million years ago lol

          • Ronald

            Look at Pompeo, he looks human, but is operating with a dinosaurs brain. If God doesn’t keep him well fed, he would start using that brain, creating even more trouble.

        • Kastaibes

          Consider you need to provide those 72 virgin for each death terrorist must be one hell of job 😂😂

          • God

            Nah, don’t think so, most of the times I just group them by 73 and I’m technically correct

    • Toni Liu

      They already mile better than turk for arming the party inside syria, even better than how american arming the kurds, most turkey doing in syria recently just for show that they are had solidarity with their rotten near crumble minion, look how they help their minion by building pointless observation point that many already got hostaged by saa, thats not comparable to how russia help saa

  • EveryoneIsBiased

    @Southfront: Please more of those maps, where you compare the progress over a longer time, just like the one above. Maybe regular maps with progress per week and months.
    Thanks!

  • Ziønist šhill

    It’s fun watching Pompeo whine like a little bitch. That fat fuck

    • Assad must stay

      fat clown he is lol

  • Jim Bim

    Pompeo is a moron.

    • Saint Jimmy (Russian American)

      YES. Parachute his fat butt into Iraq or Afghanistan. Give him a compass and a pocket knife.

      • namulit emperor

        You are too nice. Give him an umbrella instead of a parachute…

  • Redadmiral

    AMN News reporting SAA have struck Headchoppers and their embedded Turkish rats. “At the same time, the Syrian Arab Army scored a new advance in southwestern Aleppo this afternoon, as their troops reportedly captured the town of Kafr Nouran from the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS).
    As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army finds themselves on the cusp of reaching the key town of Al-Atareb in the southwestern countryside of Aleppo.”

      Cheers, man, we are winning.

  • Rafik Chauhan

    Turkey is making himself a foot ball .getting kick from everyside. bcuz of Erdogon stupidity. turkey will suffer . Erdogon will kill turks and Syrian bcuz of his master US Zionist whabhi allainace

  • good american

    More than likely Pompeo recommends bombing Russian s400 systems first. The ones in Ankara.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I suspect that Pompous Pompeo is asking Erdo to give the US a S400 system.

  • jorge

    Yeah, lets go west.

      Assad himself leading the charge onto Istanbul, initial news that Ergodan has fled turkey on a libyan ship to Italy.

      • Assad must stay

        update: erdogan now being charged for war crimes lol

    • Tudor Miron

      Thanks you for this. Good equipment put to good work. A joy to watch.

    • Toni Liu

      Are they want to make new front from the west to join force in the m5 then making a big bulge under m4?

  • Stinky Man

    Trump would increase his chances to win reelection if he removes young American service men from harms way in Syria. Any large number of casualties will cost him votes. He would just have to defy Israel and tell them American kids will not man Israels front line. Trump could rest assured terrorist will be killed because of the great job Russia and the SAA have been doing for years and will continue until it is complete. One can hope. What does Russia get? A port in the MED.

    • good american

      Wishful thinking. It looks like Agent Orange works for Israel.

      • Assad must stay

        hahahahahaha a great name nickname for him!!!!

        • good american

          It is a good one. I saw someone here use it first.

    • SnowCatzor

      Despite his campaign promises, he turned out to be another Israeli ass-kisser. Essentially Trump has proven that the deep-state will always rule Washington. Thus, the US system is broken.

  • Tim Williams

    Major thrust of SAA forces pushing directly west towards KAFR HAMRAH north of ALLEPO CITY, RAF have made dozens of bombing runs on rat positions …

  • Mauro Craizer

    9 “rolling thumbs” Turkish observation posts. Hahaha!

  • Assad must stay

    very excellent works SAA, do not even listen to or believe one word pompeo says, he is a fat clown hahahaha

      Hahahah good lord, that terrorist die by overdrinking boiled coffee from their thermos, hope many of them got choked by that hot water thermos

  • jorge
    • Tim Williams

      SAA needs to hold on to and keep these areas … nobody like to pay twice for the same piece of real estate.

  • SnowCatzor

    Pompeo is a piece of shit, that moron is actually supporting these HTS/Al Qaeda rats just because they’re fighting the opponents of Israel. The guy is a total warmonger with no morals whatsoever – a perfect Washington type.

    Still, he can bitch all he likes. The SAA are clearly too good for these HTS terrorist vermin and their Turkish handlers to beat. If only the SDF could fight as effectively, then maybe they wouldn’t have lost Afrin and the other northern territories. Maybe there’s a lesson in there for the SDF, because when it eventually comes time to expel these invaders once and for all, they’re gonna need the SAA to lead them.

    • good american

      i can’t help but think that the Kurds have a fatal flaw, like the character(s) in greek tragedy. They would do so much better if they did not listen to the sweet nothings of the US.

    • Kastaibes

      I still remember the old US policy ” We will never negotiate with terrorist ” which is al qaeda and isis , but looks like now it become ” we love al qaeda and isis “

  • Xoli Xoli

    Erdogan and his headchopers are in great danger.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Pussycat Pompeo is making fun of Erdogan by giving condolences. Why not to SAA if the number of death stands at 101.Because of Erdogan supporting terrorism every body dislike Turkey.

  • Caesar

    ISWNews Analysis Group:
    The Syrian army repulsed the Turkish-backed groups and Tahrir al-Sham attacks on the Nayrab axis west of the city of Saraqib.

    Turkish-backed forces entered Nayrab but heavily pounded by the Syrian armyartillery and many of their Turkish equipment has been destroyed. According to sources the attack repelled so far.

  • JR

    Death to the Turks!

  • Davki

    Always, if you think it can’t get more absurd, the come up with something… I saw an interview with a Turkish guy (and some others) on Al-Arabiya (!)… the first thing he said that “it was a declaration of war” (Syria on Turkey)!!! I literally laughed out loud, for two minutes, I almost threw my guts out. Right, so you claim huge swaths of land of a different country as your own, enter it, send military, occupy… that’s all fine, but if some shells fall among your soldiers, it’s an act of war. You can’t turn things more on their head than that. Oh, wait… Pompeo… that was “destabilzing”. Right, and what pray are Turkish and US forces stabilizing? Probably a souvereign country… right.
