SouthFront: Damascus and Moscow Prepare to Eradicate US Backed Terrorists

At the beginning of May, the time of spring cleaning in central Syria may have arrived.

The Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a series of airstrikes on ISIS hideouts in the region, and specifically the Jebel Bishri region located along the administrative border between Raqqa and Deir Ezzor, the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle and other parts of the region.

These strikes took place in anticipation of a large-scale operation that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) will carry out with Russian support.

Several units from the SAA 5th Corps, 11th Division and the 25th Special Forces Division, known as the Tiger Forces, will take part in the operation. Syrian troops will move from Hama and Raqqa simultaneously.

ISIS has ramped up its activities in the last several weeks. The Amaq News Agency even shared footage of terrorists going about their daily chores in Homs. Likely to show that being a terrorist isn’t so bad and there’s some sort of normality to the entire scenario.

In the northern part of Syria, despite no ISIS, chaos is ever present. Not least thanks to Turkey’s crusade on the Kurdish groups in the region.

On May 2nd, a child was reportedly killed when at least 12 rockets landed in Afrin city center and nearby farms. The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which control a strip of land to the south of Afrin, was blamed for the deadly rocket attack.

On the previous day, six artillery shells hit Afrin city. No human losses were reported, Turkish forces responded by shelling two nearby towns held by the SDF.

Several units of the SAA and the Russian Military Police are present in the SDF-held pocket south of Afrin.

On April 30th, the Russian Aerospace Forces targeted militants preparing to attack Turkish forces in the northern region. Militants near the town of Shuarghat al-Arz in northern Aleppo and Khurbat al-Ruzz in northern Raqqa were targeted with several FOTAB 100-80 flash bombs.

On the same day, nearby, in Greater Idlib, militants of the al-Fateh al-Mubeen Operations Room, that’s led by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, attacked Syrian army positons near the town of Kafr Nabl in the southern part of the province.

The militants targeted SAA troops with heavy machine guns, and a battle tank was struck by an anti-tank guided missile.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the SAA responded to the attack by pounding militants’ positions in the towns of Kansafra and Fatterah.

The “moderate opposition” in Idlib wastes no chance to remind of itself by violating the ceasefire regime in the countryside and shell SAA units and positions.

  1. My, my…the machinations are flying. KSA holds top level meeting in Syria, supposedly going to support Syria’s return to the Arab League, for whatever positive that is supposed to be. After all, they joined with the Zionists to foment, support and continue the terror war on Syria. Then there is the KSA/Yemen initiative and supposed openness to Iranian talks. Sounds like more divide and conquer…Syria/Hezbollah-Iran. The carrot will be put forth, but will Syria stab Tehran? Maybe the answer is the recent Russian delegation to Israel…and the subsequent Israeli attack on Syria.

  2. The Syrians have a good army but to be effective have to concentrate on one area. So are they going after Idlib or south-central Syria (where the IDF is certain to give air support to ISIS, their best friends).

    • Hi chriswold,
      “The Syrians have a good army but to be effective have to concentrate on one area.”
      I wonder: Does that mean the SAA is under-sized? Or, are they simply overwhelmed by criminal banking cartels, etc. ? So perhaps, it’s both?
      Always good to see your posts.

    • I’d say undersized.
      In 2016 they went hard against Idlib, it took them a while but the eventually pushed the Jihadis out of Latakia, just as Col Lang predicted. And this was when most experts on TV were laughing at the Russians / SAA.
      During the first ceasefire, they went south, rolled up ISIS, and took Palmyra. The Idlib bunch broke the ceasefire forcing the SAA back north. That is when they were able to liberate Aleppo while at the same time losing Palmyra again to ISIS. Again they had to go south but then were able to break the siege of Deir Ezzor.
      Whenever they are able to concentrate their forces, they always win and win, especially later in the war.
