BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels have taken advantage of the Turkish military’s strikes on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in southwest Aleppo to launch a big counter-offensive near Kafr Halab.

The jihadists began their counter-offensive in typical fashion, as they sent a suicide bomber towards the Syrian Arab Army’s positions west of Kafr Halab.

Following the suicide attack, the jihadists and their Turkish-backed allies from the National Liberation Front (NLF) stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses in a bid to reclaim the territories they lost to the latter this week.

Thus far, no advances have been reported at this front.

This latest counter-offensive by the jihadist rebels comes just hours after the Syrian Arab Army captured several areas inside southwestern Aleppo.

Prior to this counter-offensive by the jihadist rebels, the Syrian Army was approaching the strategic Regiment 46 Base, which has long been under the control of the militants.

La fuerza aerea Rusa es quien debe reaccionar ante este acto terrorista por parte del regimen Turco

I believe RUS will have to use their long range ICBMs on these Head choppers. On 13th Feb Thursday ErDOG is visiting Pakistan to meet Imran Khan. The joint statement reiterated that Turkey supports the right of self determination for the Kashmiri people, while Pakistan supports Turkey’s stance on the issue of Cyprus. Looks like both the countries are walking into quicksand and going to take on more than they together can bite with Cyprus supported by EU & NATO and against India which has snubbed Turki over its Kashmir stand with Pakistan. Turki was hoping to get 2.3 BN… Read more »
