According to reports, the Turkish military heavily shelled the Syrian Army’s positions in the recently captured town of Kafr Halab, prompting the SAA troops to seek cover from the artillery.

No casualties were reported as of yet.

At the same time, new clashes between the Syrian Arab Army and jihadist rebels are reportedly taking place west of Kafr Halab, as the latter attempts to reclaim the territories they lost.

This latest attack comes just a few hours after the Syrian Arab Army captured three towns in the southwestern countryside of Aleppo.

I believe you are correct. Putin not backing down and SAA is going all the way. ErDOG can not win. He is either stupid or he wants to get rid out these Idlib terrorists.

It’s quite clear that aside from Syria having to battle the foreign enabled Terrorist groups, Syria is also battling with many Terrorist enabling nations such Turkey and the U.S. who have come to the aid of their lackeys in idlib. May the SAA triumph !

I believe the Russians better make it clear to Turki that its game is over in Syria & they can safely go home and leave the head choppers to SAA & RUAF. The territory Turki is trying to defend is Sovereign territory of Syria. The choice is with the Islamic Jihadis either to put down their weapons and surrender without any preconditions or go to h**l and rot. If Turki gets involved heavily then they will not know when to withdraw and get stuck like Saudi UAE Sudanese Egypt forces in Yemen. Eventually the Houthis screwed them all. So too… Read more »

Putin ha estado ayudando al pueblo Sirio, y gracias a él el país Siria todavía existe pues USA-Israel-NATO (Turkía en particular) pusieron los terroristas en Siria para destruirla totalmente. Sin embargo, los compromisos económicos comerciales Turkía-Russia han hecho que Rusia no pueda actuar libremente en el norte de Siria (Afrin, Idlib, norte del Eufrates). Rusia estaba complaciendo a Turkía con los famosos “ceses al fuejo” y acuerdos entre Turkía-Rusia-Iran. Dentro de los acuerdos principales era que Turkía se encargaría de separar terroristas de “opositores”, de crear un zona libre en las autopistas M4-M5, y desarmar a los “opositores”. Bueno, Turkía… Read more »

This is a really good news for Israel and the USA.

Turkey will start the war with Russia and Iran. We should just wait until they obliterate each other and the problem is solved.

Iran if attacked should launch 100000 missiles at Isarel. No one will leave in that state – everybody will be dead – not even an ant will survive
