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.

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… Read more »
