BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The jihadist offensive to capture the town of Hamamiyat and its corresponding hilltop has proven incredibly costly for Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies.

While they were able to capture Hamamiyat and its corresponding hilltop at first, they would ultimately give up these sites after an intense bombardment, followed by a ground attack from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

According to a military source in northwestern Hama, the jihadist losses from this failed offensive is estimated to be between 40-50 killed and many more wounded.

For the Syrian Army, the recapture of Hamamiyat was an imperative task as the town is located just east of Kernaz and Al-Sqaylabiyeh.

Someone said the other day the SAA do this on purpose , Takeover an area then fall back and then bomb the F out them . Makes sense if they booby trap the place and get all the co ordinates for artillery and co. Deplete their resources until they are too weak to defend against the main SAA drive and collapse quickly in the end. Pity so many SAA have to suffer along the way.

Not really : – They have limited manpower as now it must be around 130/140k for Turkish puppets and 30-40k for HTS/Nusra/Qaeda… Strange we don’t hear about ISIS in Idlib any more. Seems they merged with Turkish puppets… – Turkey lost 27% of its economy in 3 years, Erdogan’s decision to fire the Central Bank’s head who refused to step down from the 24% interest while it’s the only way to stop the economic downfall make all economists consider Turkey on the brink of economical collapse. Moreover, the spats he himself created, playing dumb games with the EU and the… Read more »

He lost it: shouted “Assad is a terrorist!” during a public address in Tunis, is said to explode in the most dramatic fashion, into angst and tantrums, amid briefings with his subjects; said to be a big dreamer about his emperor project such as seeing the annexation of Syria and parts of Iraq as feasible; has been laid out bare to support “innocent civilians”-Bana and tribe(Al-Nusra)- by going as far as giving them state approved awards; has a son who held exclusive trading rights in stolen oil from poor Syria.

Solo 40 o 50 terroristas muertos, muy poco, la fuerza aérea tiene que usar bombas de mayor poder destructivo para arrazar con los terroristas de Erdogan.

Oh, you know, big destructive power on big bombs is not forcedly the best : bomblets in cluster bombs are just grenades… but you have several hundreds falling at once, covering a large area…
