BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels are nowhere to be found in southern Aleppo this evening, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reported the capture of four more towns.

According to the latest field report from the eastern countryside of Idlib, the Syrian Army captured the towns of Tal Al-Tabriz, Al-Ajaz, Al-Thuriyeh, and Al-Daheriyeh after pushing northeast of recently seized Saraqib.

The report added that the Syrian Army’s 25th Special Mission Forces Division (formerly Tiger Forces) captured these areas with relative ease, as there was little-to-no resistance from the jihadist rebels that once controlled this area.

This latest advance comes just an hour after the Syrian Army captured five towns along the Idlib-Aleppo axes in northern Syria.

I hope I am wrong but I suspect a trap by the terrorists and Turkey in Idlib. When you get a deep withdrawal suddenly and then an invasion by Turkish forces the Tigers would need to be very very careful. The loss of the Tiger would be catastrophic to the cause of anti-terrorism and to the cause of freedom for Syria. Hope I’m wrong.

There is a trap, and it will probably be sprung if the SAA makes a move on Idlib City. The Army is overstretched and relies too much on the Tiger Forces – which have lost much of their freedom to operate semi-independently. Waiting to move against them is a Turkish force that now numbers many thousands of soldiers, including Special Forces and commandos. Very large Turkish convoys are pouring into Idlib, with artillery, APCs, and hundreds of tanks. That’s no “monitoring force”, that’s an invasion force. And Erdogan has said that if the SAA does not retreat all the way… Read more »

Pretty sure these fleeing rats movements are being monitored. RUAF has been striking Idlib city. Contrary to all the terrorists hype, they run. I see no difference now. Do not expect them to “make a last stand”. They will steal/loot what they can and kill civilians as they run for the border. I also think their numbers are inflated and their fighting skills overrate.

Yes, and the problem is that you can not count with Russia to stop Turkey (NATO member), which represents a very dangerous situation for Syria Army.

Hope the RUAF, will hit them hard. Putin has already a TU 160 in Syria.

Toyota Pick Ups must be in great demand for the retreating Islamic Jihadi Dogs who are running back to Idlib scared with their Tails tucked in between their legs. I am sure they don’t want to claim 72 Virgins yet.

I’m amazed Jihadis and suicide bombers believe the lies that 72 virgins will be waiting for them in paradise?

Oh Yes disley, very much. The man who wrote the holy book thru revelations wrote it is the sacred duty of Moslems to wage holy war on non believers calling them Kafur and asked them to kill them by any means & in the process if the holy warriors dies fighting they would be called Martyrs and it just didn’t stop there an unbelievable unimaginable beyond life lifelong incentive was offered where the Martyr would get 72 hoors also known as Virgins. This was the icing on the cake for the Jihadis. Jihadis believe this to be true and not… Read more »
