BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Russian military command are in talks about a new offensive in northwestern Syria, an army source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this evening.

According to the source, the Russian-Turkish peace talks have completely collapsed in northern Syria, with Moscow resuming their heavy airstrikes on the militant forces in the Idlib, Latakia, Aleppo, and Hama governorates.

The source said the Russian Air Force sent a powerful message to the Turkish military on Wednesday when their jets destroyed an underground base belonging to the Ankara-backed National Liberation Front inside the town of Madaya in rural Idlib.

He added that the Syrian Arab Army and Russian military are planning a big offensive to expand in the Al-Zawiya Mountain region and nearby Al-Ghaab Plain.

At the same time, new reports from northwestern Syria are indicating that the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their Turkish-backed allies are preparing to launch a massive offensive to retake the ground they lost in northwestern Hama.

With both sides preparing to launch offensives, the month of July is expected to witness nearly as much violence as May and June.

“Russian-Turkish peace talks have completely collapsed” – Obviously it was bound to collapse. Turki doesn’t want Syrian Army & Russian AF to go after the NDF HTS & Jaish and other groups and hence they are trying to initimidate by building up their war machinery in the border with Syria. Turki will never dare to attack Russian AF or SAA troops. They also don’t have the support from US now. Turki economy will also not help them to sustain a costly long drawn war. Forget selling the S-400 to Turki. Look at the larger picture of saving on the op… Read more »

when SAA ad allies start their offensive make sure they should not stop at all bcuz once the jihadist realize their defense =vie is getting weaken they will try to make that part strong once they get chance and it will become more harder to get rid of them. once SAA realize this jihadist defence on one dide is getting weaken they should go all the way with lighning advance to capture them and keep going till jisshugor or khan shiekmun. they don’t stop. this is the only chance SAA and allies have.
