The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is ready to launch their long awaited offensive in the northwestern provinces of Syria, a Syrian Parliament meant member told the Sputnik news agency on Thursday.

“Government troops are making final preparations with reinforcements and military equipment being sent from Damascus, Aleppo and Hama to the Idlib region,” Omer Osi, a member of the Syrian Parliament of Kurdish origin, told Sputnik Turkey. 

“They are waiting orders to launch an offensive. The Syrian armed forces are determined to liberate Idlib from terrorists, and we are sure that it will certainly be taken in the near future,” Osi told Sputnik News.

One of the commanders leading this large-scale operation, Maj. Gen. Suheil Al-Hassan of the Tiger Forces, has already arrived in the Aleppo province tour the front-lines before heading to Idlib.

Gen. Hassan is expected to command the Syrian Arab Army’s main assault on the southeastern axis of the Idlib province. 

“As you know, Ankara opposes this operation, because in this case members of the terrorist groups, currently located in Idlib, will move towards Turkey,” he elaborated. 

“When operations were carried out to liberate Hama, Aleppo and other Syrian territories, the terrorists retreated to Idlib. Now they have nowhere to retreat, except the territory of Turkey,” Osi added.

Turkey, yes. Six feet under, yes. But the majority of them will go to France, Germany, Britain. That’s a shame for the people in these countries even if their governments deserve it.

Ah, the trend is no more really at accepting refugees… I’m sorry for them but we’re already overpopulated in the EU, they’d better opt to countries/areas in need of more population, e.g. Russia is Gigantic and has only about 145M in population. Brazil, Argentina, Canada, maybe even Mongolia, Papua etc etc… If necessary, we can always borrow the containers Yankees prepared for Afgha but finally didn’t used… These were built to do aerial spreading from C-130… Not spreading defoliant or fertilizer but to spread… Nuclear wastes… How to very rapidly create a no-go-zone… This is the effect of just taking… Read more »

The fact is that EVERYBODY dumped his shït on Syria…
Didn’t you noticed there are shithadists from all around the world?
Everybody let ’em move from Syria very very easily…
You even ended with Chinese or Indians or Indonesians…
One thing is also clear at CLTF/OIR : nationals are the primary targets.
Syria has deliberately been made a magnet to make all the world’s serious roaches gather here then legally kill ’em.
The most pitiful one at it is probably China : with the number of Uyghurs they dumped, they could have at least sent a squadron… They’re even more greedy than the worst western capitalists.

Turkey should take them back, they contributed to the crisis by letting thousands of terrorist cross their border to Syria while making billions in trade with ISIS and all terrorists.

If ground troops are ready, and there is already a well established attack plan, what are you waiting for ?

…Bebefore Iran and Hezbollah (“The Army of God”) intervened. Russia could have helped from the air, but it was Hezbollah’s ground intervention supported by God’s faith that reversed the situation on the ground.

Muhaha, they just defended a few Shia towns… Hey, Hebollah are a few thousands… And Hebollah is not army of a so-called god, it’s a dangerous virus…🤣 Assad caled Putin for help when he understood how he was screwed and how Hezb and IRGC were irrelevant. In sept 2015, he barely was in control of 15-20% of the country at best and the Saudis had distributed 15,000 TOWs and 750 launchers. On 450 fighter jets in 2011, SyAAF was down to barely 50-70 and is still around this number, fortunately, Russians overhowled/modernised some. Assad did terrible mistakes since he came… Read more »

Just learn the history – bombing alone can not win you a war. It takes the ground forces to do the job – with whatever HiTec support one can provide. And these ground forces MUST be driven by really high morale.

Daeshbags-Sux

Daeshbags-Sux

I never said that ground forces hadn’t to be implied!
But, by enforcing no drive zones and blasting any combat/artillery-post while they advance with armoured vehicles, well, never heard about the principles of Blitzkrieg?
It’s Blitzkrieg 2.0.
It’s clear that when it comes to morale, better have a less numerous but far more professional army than a numerous drafted one which ends being cannon fodder.

…” Hey, Hebollah are a few thousands…” That is correct but it didn’t stop this small number of highly trained soldiers to inflict a humiliating defeat on the IDF in the 2006 second Lebanon war where Israel lost between 50- 100 merkava tanks.

Straight from the horses mouth so to speak.

Since Hezbollah now have over 160,000 missiles pointing at Israeli targets including the Dimona nuclear site, Israel will not dare risk another confrontation with them. The bully has been squarely bashed on the nose and so thinks twice.

Assad did terrible mistakes…. 1)…normalised Syria’s relations with the west..// > Why normalise relations with Devils? …didn’t cut ties with Nasrallah..// > He is an uncompromized enemy of Zionists. Why cutting > ties with him just to make the West happy? 2) Not modernising the air-force.. > Modernising the Air force during an Embargo? > Do you know what’s the purpose of Western embargo? 3) At the moment he called Nasrallah and Kamenei for help, then Saudis started to pour money and weapons… > Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya NOT called Nasrallah or > Kamenei for help.

“> Why normalise relations with Devils?” => They’re no more “devils” than any ME country… Actually, those blaming them like this are usually way way more evil than Israelis. Old Goebbels’ principle : accusing others of your own crimes and… Blame the Jews first! You’ve lost you car keys? A Jew must have stolen these! Your dog is crushed by a car? Driver must have been a Jew! Just scratch the surface of any accusation on Israel, 95% are Taqyya, 4% is kitman and the remaining 1% is exaggerated truth. “> He is an uncompromized enemy of Zionists.

Yes but that didn’t stop them inflicting a humiliating defeat to Israel in the 2006 Lebanon war where they destroyed between 50-100 merkava tanks and an Israeli battleship.

Nasrallah has over 160,000 missiles targeting Israel including the Dimona nuclear facility. Israel will not have another war with Hezbollah they are compromised now. The bully has had it’s nose well and truly bloodied.

Because horses or chariots are real, and we weren’t “created”, there is no “intelligent design”, but evolution instead.
Moreover, on certain conditions of pressure, electricity and chemical elements which are analogue of the birth of life era on Earth, life creates itself from inert matter, this even as been proven in laboratory.
And it didn’t happened about 6,000 years ago…

The ‘kafir’ is winning in France now and there are circa 400,000 of them camping in Paris alone 🙂 You will have a Kafir King soon Daeshbag.

In case of reinstalment of monarchy, I’m on the list of potential kings… In fact, if enough die in the Windsors or Oldenberg families, I could also become king of UK or Norway…
Nevertheless, monarchy has very few supporters… And there are still guillotines in museums. The ‘National Razor’ could start working again, it’s not good to be the king in France, you lose your head at this job…
And we’re still a good 12 millions having firearms… Most common caliber is .300 Winchester Magnum… Good luck, it was Chris Kyle’s preferred…
In case you wouldn’t know, kafir means “infidel” = non Muslim…

I would think that Maj. Gen. Suheil Al-Hassan is in constant danger from assassination , especially after the Zionist success in the DPR ( Donbass ,Ukraine ) with the cowardly murder of the DPR leader last week. I would also think that a trusted and respected (by the troops) deputy has also been appointed so that in whatever circumstance that could render Maj. Gen. Suheil Al-Hassan unable to command is catered for. Even a nasty virus can do this. I had one over 4 years ago that knocked me off my feet for 8 months. It is important for morale… Read more »

You have totally unrealistic analysis of the situation… Sulheil is at risk of assassination by any jihadi/Turkish riffle, but he may have to take great care from Hezbo or IRGC too : Turkey and Iran are allies to cut Syria in two. UK may be risky since now, they are for sale, anybody can make them guns for hire. Trump or Bibi are likely to become very nice on Syria, providing Assad takes the right decision : sending Khamenei and puppet Nasrallah packing. As long as Sulheil doesn’t fücks with Israel, he won’t be on the hit list. AFAIK, the… Read more »
