BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – Earlier this week, the newly formed jihadist coalition, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, sent a large number of fighters from the Idlib Governorate to northwest Aleppo in anticipation for a large Syrian Arab Army (SAA) offensive.

Opposition activists claimed a large convoy consisting of several militant groups were heading northeast from the Idlib Governorate to the Al-Malaah and Al-Zahra areas of Aleppo on Tuesday.

This news coincides with the latest arrival of Syrian Arab Army reinforcements that were sent to the Al-Zahra front in order to participate in the upcoming offensive to take the Al-Layramoun District and enter Kafr Hamra.

In the coming weeks, a major battle is expected to take place between the Syrian Arab Army and jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in the northwestern sector of Aleppo City.

  1. Why isn’t the Syrian Arab and Russian airforces not attacking these convoys and sending them to oblivion? Why isn’t the Russian airforce helping the Syrian Army to ward off the offensive by the invading Turkish forces against tge SAA in Nrthern Aleppo?

    • It looks like every fuc**ing nation want that the oposite or friendly army get involved into a fight and that many die. IF Russia and USA wanted that the war is over it will be done in a week. (Look what happen IRaq/Saddam) but every one need a Land where they can test own weapons and from the other side to learn what they have. One day they work close, other again oposite….

      • I 98% agree with you. Just consider how fast western/central Africa, which means an area as large as the USA, was cleansed or even Mali only by locals+France only and Mali is 6x as big as Syria and well, Malian AF strike force = 6 Mi-24 choppers, not even sure all are flyable.
        Well, technically speaking, if Dassault created a MER (Multiple Ejection Rack) for 16x 100kg guided bombs like SDB or KAB-100, the 10 Rafales based in Jordan could do 4000 strikes a day and peak at 8000-8800 if doing it intensive. Well, these weren’t created as we’ve never had the need to really have Rafales or M-2000 used as real bomb-trucks, Vietnam style, nevertheless, it wouldn’t be a serious technical problem to do so! Thus, these 10 aircraft alone could ‘just’ apply 80-100x the combined pressure of CJTFOIR+Russia or simply strike as much in a single day it is done in 3 months… Pilots complaint they barely have a single mission per week, 2/3 being recon… Actually, a single aircraft could do the job alone while pilots would still be nightclubbing every night. Actually, they should even do lobbying to be based in Tel-Aviv or Beirut : both cities are reputed for their night life and, BTW, as there is clearly no threat, they could even do their missions while still drunk : the birds can do totally programmed flights, including landing on aircraft-carriers!

        There is not only some weapon tests in the balance, although these are included but…
        They are fucking kidding and… It’s disgusting. Thus, Russia has the excuse to have a struggling economy these days, well, Trump seems to have already seriously increased the activity but still taking his marks bt, let’s be clear : what Obongo, Killary and Kerry and actually Bush+Clinton and even Reagan administrations have done is a total shame andso are/were their motivations. Their names will be cursed forever.
