Syria, the SAA begins its offensive against militias south of Idlib

The Syrian army (SAA) offensive against the militias south of Idlib begins. Objective: to take Basrah. After the aerial reconnaissance, the bombings on the rebel positions start

Syrian army (SAA) preparations to launch a land breakout south of Idlib continue. After an intense aerial reconnaissance campaign, also thanks to the support of Russia, Damascus has started a series of targeted bombings on the rebel positions detected previously. In particular in Fatira, Blion and Kafer Aueid. The goal is to weaken the defenses of the militias and limit their freedom of movement in the area, in anticipation of the soldiers’ maneuvers. Their target is to conquer Barah, a strategic area as the roads that lead from the province to Aleppo and the rest of the Middle Eastern country pass through it. The attacks, however, coincided with the arrival from Kafr Loosin of a Turkish military convoy, which took up position in the new garrison in Jabal Al-Zawiya.

Meanwhile, Turkey faces an unexpected problem: the Ansar Abu Bakr Brigade, which has declared war on the TAF in the de-escalation zone

Ankara is trying to control the upcoming Syrian army offensive in Idlib and prevent soldiers from going too far north towards the M4. However, it has to manage a new problem in the Syrian province: the Ansar Abu Bakr Brigade. This attacked a Turk post near the village of Salat Zhor, in the western area of ​​the quadrant. The group claimed the action with a message stating that it is not affiliated with any entity in the country and that it will continue to work against the presence of TAF in the de-escalation zone. In fact, Damascus is believed to be behind it, interested in disturbing the enemy’s actions so that it does not interfere too much in the ongoing operation to take Barah.
