Units Of 4th Armored Division Deploy Near Idlib Demilitarized Zone Amid Looming Collapse Of Ceasefire


Units Of 4th Armored Division Deploy Near Idlib Demilitarized Zone Amid Looming Collapse Of Ceasefire

File image

During the last few days, several units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 4th Division were redeployed from the northern al-Suwayda countryside to frontlines in the northern Lattakia countryside and the northwestern Hama countryside, a military source told SouthFront on November 30.

According to the source, the 4th Division is currently preparing for a possible military operation against remaining radical militants within the demilitarized zone around the governorate of Idlib. However, the source noted that the operation is yet to be confirmed.

Militants violated the Russian-Turkish demilitarized zone agreement on a regular basis during the last few weeks. They even used chemical weapons to target a residential area in the city of Aleppo on November 24 injuring more than 100 civilians.

Earlier this month, Syrian and Lebanese sources reported that the Damascus government and its allies are considering a military operation against the militants in Idlib. Russia’s special presidential envoy to Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, also stressed during a recent press conference that Russia is ready to support efforts to eliminate the al-Qaeda terrorists.

Despite all of these indications of a nearing military operation in Idlib, Russia and the Damascus government will likely opt to give the demilitarized zone agreement a second chance, if Turkey takes real steps to implement it.

    “Russia and the Damascus government will likely opt to give the demilitarized zone agreement a second chance“

    I dont think Syria want to give any chances to any agreement that has been taken with out them and agreed between the russians and the turks, for the sole benefit of russia with her gas pipes into turkey in mind and the turks taking and keeping idlip and afrin and not only.

    • seawolf

      You may be right on all your suggestions!!!

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        they are not suggestions is what is been happening, since the russians and the turks make the deal for the gas pipes and then the S400s. So I am not suggesting really anything but referring to matter of fact.

        If you been following what is happening, the Syrians soonest the finish with the operations on jordans borders and golan, they moved to attack idlip and obviously afrin. The ones who rushed to make the deal that play in the hands of the turks was the russians with their `partners` and the BS they give to the world, why they did that.

        • Andreas Mikkelsen


          Remember the US pose back then (august/september?), it was very aggressive with threats about “responding to chemical attacks” and they had their boats in position. The Brits and French too. Threatening not only attacking Syria but Russians as well.

          I think calming down at that time, arming Syria with more defense systems, perhaps make it more easy to take Idlib later with the turkish deal – sounds like a much safer path. Maybe now is better?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I dont disagree with you and yes they threaten to do that. Also russians said they will attack the platforms that fire the missiles as well the missiles them selves. Now if you think that the russians was bluffing, say so. The russians calm things down as you say because they needed time, to prepare for what is not if is coming but when.

            That is also why Putin make known to his enemies and the enemies of humanity, of the arsenal at this disposal. If you want to understand what is happening and where it goes I will advice you one single thing. Don`t think as though you can save the world and especially as a humanitarian, or a don quixote. I am not saying this to insult but is a fact that the people who play the global game and killed up to now since this shit started 100s of million of people and destroyed half the nations of this earth trying to establish their total domination, will not stop until either they win or destroy the world if they can not have it as they want to have it.

            The ones who oppose them know this and acting accordingly as well preparing to face this. So if you think what russians are doing is so they save lives you are badly mistaken. It is who prevails and is in control right now that matters to all the players involved. What happens after is irrelevant and only speculation.

    • 1691

      What if you were wrong? You catch flies with honey, don’t you know it?

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        wrong that the turks with russian support not only occupy afrin but also idlip? Or that with the rusians actions stopped the SAA to attack idlip and instead done this alleged demilitarization zone or that they send with the agreements they have done with the turks all the isis and various other denominations of the scum of the earth where the turks already are changing the demographics and circulate not only their own language but also turkish lira is used?

        I dont think so but then time will tell.

        • 1691

          … wrong about Syria has been kept in the darkness regarding all agreements between the Russians, Iranians and the Turks; agreements made without Syrians; agreements benefiting the Russians and the Turks with Syria being taken for a ride. Don’t forget the details in the picture. You sound like someone who does not have a clue about strategy.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            No syrians have not been kept in darkness I never said that I said they took the decisions with out them or taking into consideration what syrians wanted to do. As for strategy I am confident I have more practical hands on experience than any one I seen their posts here.

            I think most are confused by the fact that russia moved into syria and actually saved Assad and Syria from been eliminated from the map and stop the zionist plans. The russians been forced to make the alliance with the turks not because they wanted to but because greece already been taken by the globalists, since the 18th century and been under their control since then. So all offers from russia to them have been declined by the politicians puppets of globalization as all else in west are.

            So strategy I understand very well and my sources of information is not SF or any other site that maybe we post in them but not agree with what they write or assume is happening. Watch what is about to happen and we see the results and who understand or not the motives of the global players and what make them tick.

          • 1691

            The war in Syria is not about me or you and how we feel about it. It is about liberating the Syrians from all the mercs serving the jews and the globalists. We both want it to end, the sooner the better however we are not there. Those who are know when to push and when to hold on. It is not about dropping a nuke and ending the game. It is about clearing the land of Sovereign Syria from the vermin and trust me it is not an easy task. The Russians have played their best against so many, they have excelled in strategy and achievements.
            I do not doubt your knowledge. I respect it. Save your emotions. You know it is not over yet and you have to hurry up slowly.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            no is not about you and me, I dont know what geographical location you live friend , but it effects all of us especially europe and the Balkan area and Mediterranean . Also follow your advice and think strategy and where it leads and not what you like or dislike in short follow your own advice.

            For the syrians what you say is true and it stands, for the rest of the players or invaders if you like in syria, it is about their national interest and the energy game they are playing. So use your brain and I am very well informed in what I am saying. I may have a soft spot as far russians go and an absolute hardness for anything have to do with western policies and their NWO, but that does not make me blind to reality and the actions of the ones I analyze.

            If you want to debate the issue with facts and their results then be my guest. But dont assume to think you know what I think and from my posts here you should be aware also where I stand, in case of war, and war is no stranger to any of my group since we been living it with what we chose to follow all our adult lives.

            ok buddy lets start

            1. only through russia giving the green light, was it possible for turkey to invade.
            2. take AFRIN….i have been writing about “changing the demographics for months….and i was spot on.
            Afrin today: only turkish lira is allowed as currency.all schools adopted the turkish school plan.
            all towns and villages got different..turkish names
            all “special places” like squares were renamed..the biggest in idlib city is now named ERDOGAN SQUARE
            the former native population was literally kicked of their farms, out of their homes and have bben take over by turkish scum.
            and where and from whom did they learn this procedure??????


            3. IDLIB.
            this bs agrrement was NEVER SIGNED BY ASSAD REGIME, it was an agreement between turkey and russia!!!!!!!!!!!!
            4. tukrey was the country were 99.9% of all jihadis came into syria
            5.turkey as pointed out again yesterday by syrian foreign minister was the nation that suppiled the chemicals for the variouschemical attacks
            6. Turkey was yesterday and is today the biggest foe of the assad regime
            here is a quote of erdogan 2 days ago at the summit
            Erdogan” we will not achieve peace in syria as long as the evil assad regime is in power that gasses its own people”

            now smartass take a hike to istanbul and get a BJ from a dirty turk u moron

          • Mustafa Mehmet

            Yes potsucker he’s a moron. so mess with him otherwise

    • jorge

      Promitheas, all the temporary de-escalation and demilitarized zones agreements are mere political operations proceeding the military ones. In fact, what is “de-escalate” it’s the politic unity of the jihadists on a zone, when at the same time a new military operation in that zone is prepared. Idlib is the last de-escalation zone but the more complicated, because here begin the occupied territories with the presence of foreign armies (in this case the Turks). The russians and the iranians are not saying yes to any territorial pretension of the turks, by the contrary, they are forcing all the time the turks to recognize the syrian territorial integrity.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        with words yes.

        • jorge

          And with S-300 (more, on the north, the russians neutralized the turkish planes with their S-400 long ago), and the russian and iranian help on the syrian missiles program, and the T-90, and the heavy artillery, and so on.

          What we can say is that the Syrians, Russians and Iranians are winning the war against the foreign agressors without starting a new (conventional) war with any of them (Israel, U.S., Turkey, etc.). They use the diplomatic branch to neutralize possible military offensive operations of the enemy against SAA, and in the particular case of Turkey, they already brought this enemy to the negociation table. Turkey is the more weak component of the foreign agression.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            No they dont, they are hoping they will. You seem to take this as matter of fact and it is not. Russians are not the only players not do they control everything is happening and how it will end.

            That means you looking at the events and reality selectively and discard all else, than what you like to think it be the end results of this policy. And you underestimate how far those who have dominated the world since the 16th century and the genocides they have caused globally. They still have the power and the will do do so again and is something you should think more carefully in your speculations.

            This game has not even began, let alone end and will not end well for none. For the moment what you see is proxies fighting the wars of their masters and controllers.

          • jorge

            The Turks are not only on the negociations table on Astana, they are also on the ground on north Syria, so, I didn’t meant that syrians, russians and iranians have taken them from the ground to the negotiations table, but it’s a fact that since the Astana process begun the Turks are also at the negociations table. About the probable global conflit, well, the russians are reinforcing their defenses in Crimea, and that it’s a sign.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I know what you mean. Lets see what will happen. Not everything it is as seems to be.

          • jorge

            Even things since the 16th century.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I can not agree with you on this comment. I dont know what your knowledge of historical fact is , or what you thinking when you make this comment. As for what is clear or not, is what is happening now is not clear how it end yes, since 16th century on wards when the drive for global domination started it is very clear for the ones who know historical fact and they are not educated by western story tellers and holywood.

          • jorge

            Okay, the western story tellers and hollywood are saying the same that the servents of the morons of the 16th century had said, meanwhile, now, russians and chinese are together, they are eastern story tellers and they have things like S-500, rubles and yuans, not hollywood. There’s no god nor anyone else manipulating these two enemies. They are truly enemies, but one hunt rats with two cats, and the other is the rat. Good night my friend Apollonious, and it’s obvious that this is one of those speculations of mine.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            :-)))) sleep well my friend. As we say in greece, Καλο ξημερωμα = pleasant wake up, in free translation.

            When someone from my group refers to historical fact it means proven historical fact and not from the story tellers, on either side, but from each player actions and based on the results of those actions.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – Turkey has sent a large military convoy
    to the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate, opposition
    activists in nearby Idlib reported via social media on Friday.

    According to the reports, the Turkish military convoy consisted of several trucks and heavily armored vehicles.
    The Turkish military convoy reportedly made their
    way to the observation posts in the northern Hama towns of Morek and
    Sheir Magher.

    This move by the Turkish military comes just days after the Syrian
    Arab Army (SAA) sent a large convoy of reinforcements to the front-lines
    in the Idlib, Latakia, and Hama provinces.

    In particular, the Syrian Arab Army sent the entire 5th Legion to the
    Idlib-Hama axis, while also deploying several units from the 4th
    Armored Division, including their elite 42nd Brigade (Ghiath Forces), to
    northeastern countryside of Latakia.

    TEHRAN (FNA)- The Turkish Army’s chemical-biological
    weapons experts are in regions in Northern Syria where Tahrir al-Sham
    Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) recently
    launched chemical attack on Aleppo city’s Northwestern neighborhoods,
    local sources reported on Friday.

    sources said that Turkey is trying hard to clean up the area’s soil and
    buildings from any poisonous gas residuals before the arrival of a
    delegation from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons
    (OPCW) in the region.

    Last week, the Al-Nusra terrorists launched a gas
    attack on Northwestern neighborhoods of Aleppo city, poisoning 107

    In the meantime, sources close to the militant
    groups said the recent gas attack on Aleppo by Tahrir Al-Sham Hayat
    indicates that Turkey cannot at all control the terrorist group.

    The Arabic-language Al-Watan newspaper quoted
    sources close to Nouralddeen al-Zinki terrorist group as saying that
    Tahrir al-Sham terrorists were responsible for the chlorine gas attack
    on residential areas in Aleppo.

    “The attacks on Aleppo’s residential areas were
    done by rockets and shells that had been chemically armed by White
    Helmets,” the sources said.

    The sources noted that Tahrir al-Sham’s chemical
    attacks were launched from the demilitarized zone specified under the
    Sochi agreement.

    The attacks from the demilitarized zone display
    that Ankara had no control over the terrorist groups operating in zone,
    and failed to hold up its end of the bargain.

    In a relevant development on Sunday, Syrian
    Foreign Ministry said that the Aleppo chlorine shelling was made
    possible because Western countries had been supplying weapons to
    militants so that they staged chemical attacks.

    Damascus went on to call on the United Nations to
    take measures regarding the militants who attacked Aleppo and the states
    that were supporting them, Sputnik reported.

    Syria’s comments came after on Saturday, militants
    based North of Aleppo fired chlorine-loaded shells at the city’s
    al-Khalidiye neighborhood. Militants also shelled the neighborhoods of
    al-Khalidiye and Al Zahraa as well as the Nile Street, causing at least
    65 people to be delivered to hospitals over difficulties with breathing.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – For the second time today, intense
    clashes broke out along the Idlib-Hama axis between the Syrian Arab Army
    (SAA) and jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza.

    According to a field report from nearby Mhardeh, the clashes broke
    out this evening when the Syrian Arab Army opened fire on a group of
    jihadist rebels moving through the designated buffer zone near the town
    of Al-Lataminah.
    The Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Izza would then
    respond with a barrage of mortar shells and rockets towards the Syrian
    Arab Army’s positions near the town of Helfaya.

    The fierce clashes would then spread to the southern part of Idlib,
    where the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham unleashed a flurry of
    artillery shells on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions near the Khuwayn

    These firefights have been ongoing since 6:30 P.M. (local time) and
    they continue inflict casualties within the ranks of both parties

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Saudi Coalition scored an
    important advance in western Yemen earlier this week after launching a
    powerful offensive at the Taiz-Kadhah front.

    Backed by heavy airstrikes, the Saudi Coalition managed to capture
    the Rahnaj Mountain region of the Taiz Governorate after overrunning the
    Houthi defenses at the eastern axis of the Kadhah front.

    With the Rahnaj Mountain under their control, the
    Saudi Coalition is on the verge of encircling the remaining Houthi
    forces at this imperative front in western Yemen.

    This imperative battle has recently intensified after the Saudi
    Coalition resumed their heavy ground and air assault on the Houthi

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    We all know what’s going to happen, it’s inevitable, Assad doesn’t have 100,000 troops + and growing stationed around the governorate for nothing. You don’t need that many soldiers to contain 15,000 HTS and 20,000 NFL, you do if you want to go in and obliterate the 15,00 HTS and not have the other 20,000 NFL spoil the party though. Not that I think Erdogan’s going to try, just some of the hotheads that work for him.
