The government advance on Halfaya has started this morning when government troops attacked militants in the town from the souther direction. Government forces engaged militants in a firefight and attempted to enter Halfaya. Militants were able to repel the first government push but clashes continued in Halfaya outskirts.

The Syrian army’s artillery intensified the shelling of militant positions inside and around the town. Pro-government troops are preparing for another attempt to enter the town.

Militants are clashing with government troops at Halfaya:

and none of them even blinked. they dont care


It was too easy in 2011 to kill US and UK spies in Syria and in Iraq. Now it seems too difficult. This war will run for further 10 years. But for me its too easy to crush all US and UK spies in Syria and in Iraq because I will not care of any demand of US and UK because they are the people that brutally killed majority of Afghanies, Pakistanis, Iraqies, Syrians, Palestinians, and Libyans. Israhellies are proxies.

Well done boys !


I wish they use the Russian FOAB on these rats at some point lol. Why is helfaya such a tough nut to crack tho?

Its tough if, like the Syrian gov, you are not prepared to level the entire town to save it. After the war, the Syrian gov wants a functional society, not a vast wasteland filled with shattered concrete rubble and littered with the corpses of its people.

Idlib however? maybe we can agree on an exception?


I know, I meant like in a relatively unpopulated area on some caves or something like they did did afghanistan
