The maxi offensive of the Syrian army (SAA), supported by Russia, against the militias south of Idlib begins. At the moment the fighters of Moscow are bombing the quadrant, then the soldiers will intervene. Objective: to take to Barah, a strategic crossroad
The maxi offensive of the Syrian army (SAA), supported by Russia, against the militias south of Idlib begins. The fighters of Moscow in the past few hours have carried out several bombings in the quadrant. Before there had been intense drone activity to identify the targets to hit. It is likely that once the raids are over, the soldiers will begin to advance towards al Barah. Taking the city is strategic, as the main roads leading to Aleppo and Hama pass through it. Having control of it, therefore, will significantly reduce the jihadists’ room for maneuver on both directions. The only way out for the latter will be to the north towards the M4. Here, however, Turkey has deployed a large TAF garrison. Especially after a Federation vehicle was hit by an IED while on joint patrol duty on the highway between Al-Tranbe and al-Kfeir near Jisr al-Shoghur.
Meanwhile, Inherent Resolve denies possible negative effects of the sanctions related to the Caesar Act on the fight against Isis. Nothing changes. Only the pressure on the Assad regime increases
Meanwhile, Inherent Resolve deny the rumors about the hypothetical negative effects of the sanctions related to the Caesar Act on supporting the SDF in the war against Isis. Colonel Myles B. Caggins III, the International Coalition spokesman, explained in a Twitter post that the sanctions “so not impede humanitarian assistance for Syrian people or hinder Coalition stabilization activities in northeast Syria”. In fact, the anti-Daesh activities are not involved. What changes, however, is the pressure on the Bashar Assad regime, which has increased almost exponentially. It is no coincidence that the president himself tried to run for cover early, seizing the assets of his cousin Rami Makhlouf, considered the richest man in the whole nation.
