BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – A new video released by pro-militant pages showed the alleged capture of a few Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers in northeastern Syria this week.

According to the Telegram channel Baladi News, the so-called “Syrian National Army”, a group of Turkish-backed militants, captured a couple Syrian Arab Army soldiers inside the town of Tal Al-Hawa near the strategic border city of Ras Al-‘Ayn in northwest Al-Hasakah.

The short video, which was released this week, has not been verified by the Syrian military; however, it does appear to be authentic and not old footage.

The Turkish-backed militants have carried out three attacks against the Syrian Arab Army over the last week, prompting the latter to send a large number of reinforcements to this front.

Despite these militant attacks, however, the Syrian Arab Army has not gone on the offensive; this is likely due to the presence of the Russian military in this part of the country.

Lastly, the Syrian Arab Army is already preparing for a large-scale offensive in the Idlib Governorate, so there is a high chance that the central command does not want to open up an attack at this front.

Baghdadi killing is a figment of warped imagination of Donald Trump. Baghdadi worked for
US and Zionists, and US says they killed Baghdadi proving US is admitting it’s losses in
Syria. US no longer needs a losing poster of Baghdadi. Baghdadi is still alive somewhere
in the region and of coarse protected by US forces.
