Soon after Ahrar Al-Sham’s announcement of a massive military operation against the Ramousah Artillery Base, several VBIEDs were launched with varying degrees of success.

The massive explosions coupled with incessant artillery shelling enabled the rebel forces to set foot in the Arming Base College Facility south of the artillery base. All those factors caused significant confusion within the ranks of the Syrian Army units stationed in the base.

Within a short amount of time, the Syrian Army units regrouped and launched a massive counter-attack against the invading jihadist forces pushing them out of the Arming base and the nearby artillery field that is positioned to the west of the artillery base. Contrary to rebel claims, the Islamist factions were not able to claim an inch in the buildings located inside the artillery base.

The Syrian and Russian war jets played a major role in the expulsion of the Jaish Al-Fateh jihadist coalition from the imperative military base. The warplanes obstructed the back lines of the Fateh coalition allowing the army units the sensitive time required to regroup and reorganize the fractured frontlines.

The situation is very calm currently and firefights have stopped. However, rebel escalation remains very possible due to a breach they have made south of the base. In any case, the jihadist attack came at a huge cost; dozens were killed, many more were injured, and at least 6 armored vehicles were destroyed in the violent confrontation.

Should the Syrian Army fully succeed in securing the base and re-establishing its defensive lines, what remains of the rebel offensive would be in shambles.

Dont worry Russian air force love to test their weapons…first RUAF attack supply lines and terrorist artillery/tanks deployed…second attacks terrorist inside buildings or trench as the last one with only small arms cannot do significant damage to SAA and allies!..at the end the winner is SAA..look at maps in Damascus and now in Alepo!

And, although they just did a little FOAB test on daeshits, they still didn’t give a try on qaedans… As qaedans have a lot of mercenaries, I bet that if VKS launches 4 or 5 FOABs, mercenaries will all flee the conflict and tomorrow, we’ll see the part-time white helmets (and rest-of-the-time shithadists) accuse Russia of using tactical nuclear bombs by showing the FOAB’s giant mushrooms 🙂 (Theses are not nukes but giant thermobaric bombs : everything in a 600m diameter is roasted and the vacuum effect damage extends probably @+1km, it’s known to deafen you @ 4km!

Yeep : 800 losses just by VKS (RuAF) 3/4 days ago, 380 losses by SAA on saturday…
And, to be frank, you must be completely bonkers to attack an artillery school by it’s drill range! Even cadets can kick your a*s on such a ground!
Bob must be murican : this is not a heavy-weight boxing match and having air-superiority gives a serious advantage…

Hahahhahahahahhahhahahaha. U really beleive that dont you?? Newsflash. Offencive of terrorists officially ended. Full on retreat of the terrorists is underway while getting pounded on their way back to khan touman. FYI. Not a single VBIED reached its intended destination. The biggest terorist offensive in a single day in the past 5 years occured today and all 8000 terrosits were repelled. 400 have been sent to h**l today alone

the SAA has liberated 70% of the land they invaded and you tell me that they are losing credibility ?, The US general in Iraq said that if Aleppo falls it will be the end for these criminals, mark my word it will in the next few weeks.

Two hours aftwr this report a new attack succeeded in penetrating onto the base even deeper. One thing is certain: saa at this front are clueless defenders. They could have easily dug a deep ditch around the base and no vbied nor militants could have come in. What is horribly morale defeating is the fact such ditches are used elsewhere with excellent results. Saa are se of tje worst defensive troops around. Militants defend Kabani and Daraya against all out assault with air strikes. It looks like this is the end. Syrian command once again played a.key role in securing… Read more »
