BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale advance in southern Idlib last night, as their troops captured two more towns from the jihadist rebels.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Army began last night’s attack by capturing the small town of Madaya near the jihadist stronghold of Khan Sheikhoun.

Following the capture of Madaya, the Syrian Army began to immediately secure the town in order to prevent the jihadist rebels from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham from reentering.

The Syrian Army’s next target after Madaya was the hilltop town of Tal Al-Arjahi, which was briefly contested, but later ended with the militants fully retreating back towards Khan Sheikhoun.

These advances by the Syrian Arab Army have now put their troops at the northwestern flank of Khan Sheikhoun; this also marks the farthest advance north that the Syrian Army has made in the Idlib Governorate.

As of now, the Syrian Army is working to flank Khan Sheikhoun from its western and eastern axes; however, the battle in the east is slowly progressing in comparison to the west.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Rouse the Believers have thwarted all of the Syrian Army’s advances towards Ta’manah, while also failing to regain territory themselves near Sukayk.

As I saw on two or three sites that support ISIS, they must be in a panic.They write good words about Turkey and expect more help from Turkey.I see that they are trying to make “black propaganda”, but they can’t.They do the same things over and over. Every 10 or 20 hours they publish the same articles, the same photos and the same video.They want to do ‘black propaganda’ … they want to lie but …. they don’t know how to lie??????.Their propaganda failed in East Ghouta and Douma and now they do not know what to do.

When they are in large number and on weaker people they used to instill fear and carry out all such extreme violence by raping women, beheading, cutting of arms, stoned to death, pushing gays off the cement silos, burning up / drowning / execution / beheading of captured soldiers and western nations supported some of these Jihadis by trying to project these shitheads as moderate Jihadis. In Islam & Jihad there is no such thing as Moderate Jihad it is always extreme. The recent victory of Syrian Arab Army & Russians is very assuring & progressive. Keep it up and… Read more »

They are finished,their western masters have now realized that its a lost cause,syria has won this evil war and only the jihadi idiots are left,the west still bleats and shakes its finger but syria with huge help by russia and iran have defeated the forces ranged against them, usually there would be a “chemical”attack to justify the u.s. etc threatening to invade in an attempt to slow down the victiry but thats all used up and worthless now.
This is the death throes of the enemies of this brave and beautiful country and its great to watch it happen.
