northern Hama

The Syrian Armed Forces have allegedly retreated troops from areas captured recently in northern Hama countryside.

According to opposition source, Syrian Army ground forces are to withdraw from Morek and Khan Shaykhoun in northern Hama after recapturing the two militant strongholds last month.

The same sources also added that this withdrawal comes as per an agreement between Russia and Turkey whereby the two militaries will take over the area.

AMN hasn’t yet been able to verify these reports.

Earlier, the Turkish authorities called on the Russian Armed Forces to force the Syrian Army to withdraw from the territories they captured in August.

Russia’s presence is mainly here to prevent the gas from North-Dome/South-Pars from reaching the EU through pipelines. Russian gas pipelined to the EU = 36% of Russia’s exports in value.
Having bases in Syria is just the cherry on the cake, make no mistake.
“ressitance”… To what? As mafia boss Mayer Lansky used to say : “Nothing personal, it’s just business”.

All the while Turkey has started to eat away a whole percentage of the country northern border like forever. A national army clearing up its own territory, sacrificing blood & treasure to achieve that, then withdrawing in accordance to what exactly ? A completely hostile bordering power demanding it to give space to its foreign proxies and army to get back and entrench while it expands its occupation and annexation elsewhere in the country at the very same time. That incredible news, if proven true, is beyond belief and I won’t give a d**n about Syrian sovereignty anymore if they… Read more »

Is this some kind of joke? If there was a reason for a revolution in the country this would be it. Syria should not be a slave to any country Russia or otherwise.

Spot on Anon, my thoughts exactly here, that would be tipping point for Syrians. If not, then to h**l with their history/culture/pride/whatever. I mean it. There will be a before, and an after for me personally. If this news is confirmed to be true, I’m done with this site and any moral/political contribution in their favor from now on. No further participation from me whatsoever until they get their act together. There are limits even to what a dependent satellite should swallow, that would make an already quite discredited Assad gov’t a complete joke of itself, and a forever stain… Read more »

What ?!!…If this is true, totally disappointed with Russia-SAA. Incredible what buying Su-57 can do, but I still have the hope that this is not true.

Su-57 won’t be available before 2027-2028 and Su-57E (export version) has Su-35 systems+engines onboard = Monkey Models 😉

US and Turkey protect terrorists, have destroyed Syria by killing their people and stealing resources. Now in a cynical and criminal way they say they have been negotiating the withdrawal of terrorists for years. All the territories conquered by the terrorists have been done by the Syrian army with great loss of life. How is it possible that they are now withdrawing from the recaptured Syrian territories?

If this is really happening, I expect the area under Russian/Turkish control to be much larger than just the recently made gains. It wouldn’t surprise me much if it would strech over all the M5 highway and include large areas in western Aleppo. Terror attacks on Aleppo will stop, the highway will be open and the liberated area will de facto fall back under Syrian governance. I do not expect Turkey to have much say, Russia will enforce the politics of Damaskus. The curriculum in schools will be Syrian, not Turkish. There are long standing agreements between Russia and Turkey… Read more »

Cannot imagine it’s true. At least, most recent military maps show that areas still under control of SAA.

Too much olive field

You need major conglomerates
Yes capitalism to yield more
