On June 24, a unit of the Russian Special Forces attacked a position of Turkish-backed Suqur al-Sham in southern Idlib, according to opposition sources.

Russian forces raided the position, which is located in the outskirt of the town of Benin, in the early hours of the morning. Suqur al-Sham claimed that its militants fought back. However, the results of the attack say otherwise.

Sources in Suqur al-Sham, a part of the so-called National Front for Liberation, revealed that four militants of the group were killed and three others were injured in the raid.

The slain militants were identified as Mohamad Ghandoura, Mahmoud Ghandoura, Abdu al-Qadir Ghandoura and Omar al-Na’is.

Opposition sources claimed that the Turkish military responded to the attack by shelling Syrian Arab Army positions in the outskirt of the city of Ma`arat al-Nu`man. However, these claims are yet to be verified.

This was the first operation by the Russian Special Forces since the signing of the March 5 agreement with Turkey. The attack was likely a response to recent violations by militants. Earlier this week, the militants attempted to target the Hmeimim Air Base in Lattakia with drones.

This is the way to go small units of heavily armed and mobile special forces,they need to deploy such units into the desert where the rats nests are located then either call massive airstrikes in or liquidate them on the spotdon’t take any prisoners

Proper military response, professionally done.

Turkish protection of the Jewhadis, seems to have taken a set-back.
Imagine what the RUAF can do against such poor observation and surveillance savvy goatlovers!

the speitnatz consistently rank #1 or 2 in international competitions—US special forces concistently rank as the most impotent—their training is far more rigorous—and they r required to be fluent in other languages

Cromwell the British SAS of WW2 wrote the book on this sort of warfare,these methods are still relevant to this day,and should be used by the SAA in that desert area where the terrorists are and their logistics.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

According to the Astana agreement number 16 the NFL are designated as legitimate moderate opposition forces, maybe the Russians need a new agreement.
