BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – Several Turkish-backed rebels that were previously active in northern Aleppo have since been redeployed to the Idlib-Hama axis after their comrades from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham suffered heavy losses during their failed bid to recapture all the territory they lost to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Speaking to Al-Masdar from northwestern Hama, a Syrian officer said that his group has faced militants from several groups over the last 48 hours. The officer said Syrian military intelligence reports indicated that many fighters from the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) were recently redeployed to northwestern Hama after the heayy losses sustained by their allied forces.

The jihadist group, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, has suffered the brunt of these losses as their forces have led each battle to reclaim the territory they lost to the Syrian Arab Army since early May.

The Syrian Army has also suffered heavy losses in their ranks, but with the recent arrival of reinforcements and military equipment from their Russian allies, their morale remains high amid a new push into the southwestern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

On Monday, the Syrian Arab Army resumed their offensive in northwestern Syria, seizing the small town of Al-Qasabiyah after a short battle with the jihadist rebels. As a result of this advance, the Syrian Army has secured the northern flank of Kafr Naboudeh.

HIGH TIME to consider applying pressure in Northern Aleppo. Since most of Syria has been liberated, there is more than necessary personnel for a double pronged offensive.
If they need to deplete their personnel in Northern Aleppo to contain the Hamma offensive, they won’t be able to cope with an offensive in Northern Aleppo in parallel.
The goal should be a pincher movement to blockade the border and surround the bums.

In case of a real offensive there, the SDF would, most likely after a deal, be happy to support this offensive, provided they get air cover.

No air cover, no deal, no support.

This is obvious : they’re not suicidal.

I’m not in charge, unfortunately, but was I, well, since Rafale can operate from an only 600m long (hard) straight road, I’d be pleased to create a mini airbase, e.g. on the former Lafarge cement plant (already used by the Yanks : they have AH-64 and MV-22 there) since there is exactly what it takes : The diagonal street you see on the upper right of the plant or its horizontal continuity are enough long and can sustain 40t trucks, moreover, since US operate from here : There is kerosene available 🙂 Since a Rafale does the job of three… Read more »

Idlib fighting is sucking in more and more men and materiel. Civilian opposition against rebels is rising. More and more areas are devastated.

Only SDF is getting happier.

It’s clear it isn’t great for a Turkish offensive on Manbij.

Mientras Erdogan siga entrometido seguirán los terroristas fortalecidos
Mientras Rusia lo permita seguirán los terroristas.
La ofensiva debe ser por norte de Latakia hasta cerrar la frontera Turca.
