Idlib Militants Attack Syrian Army Near Saraqib Following Israeli Strike On Shayrat Airbase

Late on March 31, the Israeli Air Force carried out a new round of airstrikes on Syria. Israeli warplanes launched over 12 missiles from Lebanese airspace targeting Shayrat Airbase in the Syrian province of Homs. At least 8 of them were intercepted by the Syrian Air Defense Forces. The damage caused to the airbase by the Israeli strike remains unclear.

Pro-Israeli sources claimed that the attack was aimed at weapon depots and positions of Iranian and Hezbollah forces.

Shayrat Airbase is well known as the point used by the Syrian Air Force to provide air cover for the government forces’ operations against al-Qaeda terrorists in Idlib. Russian attack helicopters also use it as a prestrike staging base. Over the past years, Israeli forces have repeatedly assisted al-Qaeda-linked militants in Syria by striking the country’s armed forces during ongoing important military developments. Syrian sources say that the timing of the new attack indicates an imminent escalation in Greater Idlib, where the Turkish-Russian de-escalation agreement is slowly crumbling.

Early on April 1, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and its supposedly moderate counterparts shelled positions of the Syrian Army near the town of Saraqib, which is located on the crossroad of the M4 and M5 highways. In response, Syrian artillery delivered several strikes on militants’ positions near Afis and Sarmin.

Emboldened by the ceasefire regime and the increasing Turkish military presence in the region, Idlib armed groups are now regularly attacking Syrian Army units in eastern Idlib. Last week, they claimed that they destroyed 3 pieces of military equipment, including a battle tank, with anti-tank guided missiles. Such actions highlight apparent gains from the current format of de-escalation efforts in the region.

ISIS released a video report on its campaign against government forces in the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert during 2019-2020. According to the video, ISIS units continue ambushes of civilian and military vehicles, as well as separate army units, moving along the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor road. Terrorists stage fake check points, loot civilian properties and kill those that they capture. ISIS members demonstrate the mindset of common criminals. The video also shows a few pieces of destroyed military equipment belonging to  the Syrian Army.

While the video is designed to serve as a promotion piece of supposed ‘successes’ of the terrorist group, it in fact reveals the current poor state of ISIS cells, which are barely surviving in the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert. If there is no more US-occupied al-Tanf zone where they can hide from Syrian Army security operations, they will have little chance of surviving in this part of Syria for another year.

    ISRAEL Defending ISIS Militants as USUAL

      You are lucky we still have Bibi after Gantz’s betrayal and joined him, otherwise Syria will have airstrike each day. Sadly, a true patriotic Israelis is a rare thing these days and the money has blinded them.

        IDF has the capability to annihilate the Regime is ways nobody has ever seen. And you are right, Netanyahu is weak and isn’t calling the right shots.

        • <>

          The problem is the PM has the last word to decide about a military operation. I have never fled a battle during my 4 years of active service + 11 as reserve, I always did what the commanders told me even when it risked me life. I would do it again, but only for Israel and not for some old dirty corrupted man. Unlike that fat bastard, they don’t buy me with money.

            That is Israel’s dilemma. As all of Israel’s contradiction impact the Zionist dream, the Zionist oligarchy lives in splendor having sex with poor underage girls, drinking the finest champagne, smoking the finest cigars. The vast majority of Israeli struggle to survive, and thinking to get the hell out. Israel lives in the most dystopic place in the planet which it help create, and Israel will soon be as dystopic.

          If Israel tries to “annihilate” Iran, the favor will be returned in kind. Remember the Iranian missile attack on the US military base in Iraq in response to Suleimani murder? Well, a surprise present delivered by first class mail in the form of 1,000 pinpoint accurate missiles to Dimona. All of Israel’s enemies have their nuclear weapons stored in Dimona, Negev. Ever wonder no one is complaining about Israel’s nuclear weapons?

          • Jake321

            Hey dodo. If Israel feels compelled to annihilate Islamist Iran, Iran won’t have the time or means to do much in return. And the first indication of an attack on Dimona will mean the glow in the dark end to Iran as a functioning country and society. Even the Murdering Mullahs are not as stupid and suicidal as you, kid.

          • El Mashi

            Israel is already “compelled” and ready to annihilate Islamist Iran. This is a known fact. Using Zionist Israeli logic and history, Iran has the right to attack in self defense. Now, why did the US attack Iraq for being suspected to have weapons of mass destruction, and did not attack North Korea that had detonated a nuclear bomb. Well, Israel plays with fire with Iran. If you massively attack Iran, Iran will fight back just as it bombed the American military base in Iraq. If Iran really wanted to end the US/Nato flagship,aka, Zionist Israel, it can, but it won’t. Israel has already sown the seeds of its destruction at the Demora Nuclear bomb storage depot.
            Every country with a descent anti aircraft/missile defense can use it to bomb Demora. May cooler head prevail.
            Shalom.

      • So, Gantz is preparing to become president of the parliament, his followers split and gone, his base gone, the opposition to Netanyahu demoralised and damaged. Seems he once again won and Israel will have a second decade under Benjamin?

        • <>

          Nah, if the votes won’t win him then the age will. He is 70 years old and I don’t see him staying the PM after 2024, the opposition will get stronger when he is gone.

          • Jens Holm

            I see no replacements in the opposition. The moderates are almost gone. Their wishes dont count.

        • Jens Holm

          They have their problemes there.

          The mainprobpems seemes to be, they dont have anything better then Netanayuh.

            why have jews been kicked out of over 100 countries?

          • Jens Holm

            They raise their children to ask questions, they pay hard for their pupils learn usefull things in school, they pay for education, they find their skills, they by that produce a lot and make You feel as You are – Some lazy bums making the best excuses for doing nothing.

            A pity there is no Nobel price for bad excuses. If so You could get millions for doing nothing.

            Hard times for 100 countries having no more excuses for people doing nothing and even insisting.

          • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

            LOL. you didnt answer the question

        The Israelians has made several elections making no result for good Governess by a wast majority.

        I can only admire both finaly has made some kind of peace. You cant have a Goverment, whoch cant decide things.

        It seemes You prefare that…

        Its not their fault You send them much money.

      • John

        Well, that is a good thing then. Because, if there were airstrikes everyday, I guess the IAF would be losing planes almost everyday. Not always negative you know.

        • <>

          And they would be losing alot more than planes John, not a negative thing you know.

          • John

            Sure, losing targets to hit after they wipe them out. :)

          Unlike, the Anti-Christ, U$, Israel, Nato and Saudi Arabia who are all encouraging, arming and funding religious genocide against Christians and other minorities in Syria, Hezbollah protects Christian shrines in Syria from the US, Israeli, Nato and Saudi-backed terrorist head-choppers! Watch the photos of Hezbollah fighters just doing that on link below:

        Like the U$, Saudi Arabia and Nato, Israel is always in the arse of Takfiri/Salafi savage terrorists. Israel is even arming and collaborating with (get this) neo-nazis in Ukraine! See it below:

    Let me point out something. Russia intelligence saw when Israel planes took off, and also saw the direction taken by these planes, and also saw the moment and where these planes lunched their missiles. In other words, Russia intelligence love th watch these movies.

    • Jake321

      Why not? They like other Russians, even if Jews, blowing away Muslims, Arab or not, who they never have liked much. Kind of cheering for the home team, I guess.

    • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

      Do you think Russia should violate other sovereign nations airspace to directly hit israeli faggots aircraft then?
