The Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) are especially busy in the skies over Greater Idlib.

On September 19th alone, VKS warplanes carried out 17 strikes on 5 different positions under the control of the de-facto ruler of the region – the al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

The Russian airstrikes coincided with a heavy rocket attack by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on militants’ positions in the outskirts of the town Jisr al-Shughur in the western countryside of Idlib.

Recently, several reports said that the SAA and its allies were preparing to launch a new ground operation in Greater Idlib to deter HTS and its allies as well as to reopen and secure the Lattakia-Aleppo highway, also known as the M4.

This could prove entirely true, as all targets struck by the VKS and the SAA are located on the southern part of the M4 highway and could be an attempt to pave way for a combing operation.

Meanwhile, HTS is reportedly expanding its influence in the Turkish-occupied northern Syrian area of Afrin, according to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The SDF media center revealed that HTS commanders had visited the Yazidi town of Bosoufane as well as the districts of Jandaris and Sheikh Hadid in Afrin. There they met with leaders of the Turkish-backed factions to carry out negotiations.

HTS terrorists established posts in Bosoufane and a number of other areas in southern and western Afrin. They reportedly use forged documents provided by the Turkish-backed al-Shmaiya Front to move in the area.

The terrorist group is also about to reach a deal with the Suleyman Shah Brigade, one of the largest Turkish-backed factions in northern Syria.

HTS regularly violates the ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib, while Ankara turns a blind eye to the developments in the region. Now, it appears that Turkey is providing even more tangible support allowing the group to spread its influence in the regions it occupies and negotiate with the factions it supports.

Western efforts to whitewash HTS and its terrorist leader, Abu Mohamad al-Julani, are evidently ramping up. The group is being promoted as a reformed, acceptable version of al-Qaeda, since the US and co. need another reliable partner in the region.

The United States is preparing for unknown activities, as helicopters transported dozens of ISIS terrorists from a prison run by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the city of al-Qamishli in the northern countryside of Syria’s al-Hasakah to a US base located in the governorate’s southern countryside. Approximately 60 terrorists were taken out, and a total of about 150 were taken out earlier in 2021.

According to Syrian media, these terrorists are trained and re-equipped to fight against the Damascus government.

Neither of those statements is true. Try again.

Chris Gr

Yeah because both sides are slaves of the capital?

Helen

Actually it is. ISIS etc are being used to create Greater Israel.

Lance Ripplinger

The liberation of the highway will happen, regardless of the terrorists. “HTS” knows their days are numbered. They will either surrender, or be killed. President Assad is living up to his promise to liberate every inch of Syria, and restore her total and complete sovereignty. The battle to clear a 10km buffer zone on either side of the M4 will be difficult, but will happen. The terrorists know they will be cut off when the highway is cleared out by the SAA.

Cromwell

The fact is Idlib has to be liberated and if that means rolling over the Turks that is what must happen,many of those terrorists in Idlib were sent there when Aleppo was liberated on a green bus,what the hell was that all about?

Icarus Tanović

They surrendered, that’s it. SAA are no monsters such these Wahhabis are. Can you imagine brainwash kids from say 17 years olds? From European Muslim countries, or non Muslim countires, for example.
What those cells are doing in say London or Paris? Recently (maybe last year)have seen several French young lads dressed as Wahhabis and behaving as such. Such is that infamous and notorious Pierre vogel.
All this is Zionistic Neocon creation and War against human kind.

Cromwell

They surrendered,so what? in WW2 when Germans surrendered we didn’t put them back onto the battlefield in another location,we put them in camps,although those Wahabi Apes don’t deserve to live,at least the foreign ones who i would shoot on the spot.

Ahson

Trying to prevent a massacre

Cromwell

I don’t know about you but i want to see those Apes massacred.

Icarus Tanović

That is exactly what will happen. No spares.

Attila

assad is very strong💪 He should go for a golan height too

Romo

I believe so and the deal with the turkish are just a last deal to try to retain those territories still in their hands.

Ragheadthefiendlyterrorist

The only way to stop the spread of HTS, which is al Qaeda and should be called al Qaeda not HTS or whatever cover name it adopts, is to liberate Idlib. All of Idlib, including Ottoman colonised Afrin.

Icarus Tanović

He’s just hide behind so called ottoman ambitions. He’s just a bum on Zionistic/CIA payroll.

Attila

Too much baked beans again you are nothing but hot air

US & EU are Zion slaves

That could very much be said against the Taliban, just change US to Pakistan LMFAO.
Taliban still have a link with Al-Qaeda and FFS they meet with all Wahhabi Cunts first.
Ignore and called them what you want, I come back and laugh.

“The group is being promoted as a reformed, acceptable version of al-Qaeda, since the US and co. need another reliable partner in the region.”

Ahson

Same same as moderate Sunni muzlim terrorists. What we need here is to destroy Islam completely as it’s just a nuisance!

Attila

Destroy your mama first so she can stop breeding

Marco

I wish these stupid conflicts would finally end.

Turkey and the US should be declared Terrorist states.

“Fail to stop the spread of hts”? Please. Enough dramatics. The SAA and allies are in complete control of the situation.

Time is on their side, manpower, technology, weapons supplies etc. Enough BS about nonexistent hts strength. They are being exterminated daily.

hi

jens holm

West never has tryed to whitewash those people. They are left in peace as long as they are not in international connections. Sure, they also get at least some randomhelp.

Facts here are misguided.

I also – again – need more sober information about what how the many bombardments by Assads and Russia are not terrorisme even we are told Assads are supported by 91,5% of the voters .

I hardly ever see anything about that even Assads are the main killers and for sober reasons or not ???

USA here is mentioned because the writer try to blindfold people from responsability for their own lives runned by Assads.

The main parts of those uprisers are POOR with no hopes for the future mainly coming from no hopes for the future. So they have taken any job in this Baathist non devellopementt zone by the only structures Assads has not been able to kill. Thats Jihadisme and reformed communisme.
