Syria, the SAA prepares the ground invasion south of Idlib

The Syrian army (SAA) is preparing for a land invasion south of Idlib. Objective: to conquer Barah. In the past few hours there has been an aerial reconnaissance campaign and first attacks with artillery to weaken the enemy defenses

The Syrian army (SAA) is preparing a new offensive on the ground against local militias in Idlib. Particularly south and east towards Barah. In the last few hours there has been an intense aerial reconnaissance campaign, also thanks to the support of the Russian component, aimed at identifying the enemy’s defensive positions and its routes of movement. This was also preceded in recent days by a violent offensive with artillery in the Jabal Al-Zawiya area. Raid attempts had also been made, which the rebels had managed to repel. Now it seems like something big is being organized. Not surprisingly, Turkey very quickly set up a new permanent garrison in the quadrant. In theory this serves to improve safety along the M4, but in reality it also aims to monitor the situation directly on the ground and to prevent the SAA from going too far north.

Damascus, however, fails to defeat Isis between Homs and Deir Ezzor. IS attacks on Russian soldiers, allied militias and partners continue. Plus, they quickly get close to Mayadeen

Damascus, on the other hand, fails to defeat Isis in the East. The jihadists in fact continue the attacks against the SAA, the allied militias and Russia’s partners in the Badia al-Sham desert, between Homs and Deir Ezzor. Furthermore, they are fast approaching Mayadeen, despite all the operations that Syrian soldiers have recently carried out to neutralize them. The latest attack caused the death of a member of the al-Quds Brigade and the injury of others, following the explosion of an IED that hit the vehicle in which they were traveling. This happened, however, while they were engaged in a cleaning manoveour against the IS cells in the quadrant. Only three days ago, however, there was an attempted offensive in the Doubayat gas fields area, which was rejected by the Moscow contractors.
