BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a counter-offensive in southern Idlb on Tuesday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army areas recently captured by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Led by “Rouse the Believers”, the jihadist rebels began their offensive by sending two suicide bombers towards the defenses of the Syrian Arab Army.

Following the suicide attacks, the jihadist rebels began storming the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses in a bid to fracture their front-lines and retake the town of Sukayk and its corresponding hilltop.

However, the jihadist attacks would ultimately fail in southern Idlib after several attempts to break through the Syrian Army’s front-lines.

According to a military source near the front-lines, the Syrian Arab Army killed dozens of jihadist rebels during the battle, including several foreign combatants.

In addition to the high loss of life, the jihadist rebels also lost a number of vehicles during the short battle on Tuesday.

The source said that the Syrian Arab Army has fully secured Sukayk and Tal Sukayk, adding that they will likely make another attempt to capture the hilltop of Tal Tari, as they were forced to retreat earlier in the day.

Once Tal Tari is captured, the Syrian Arab Army can make their first attempt to retake the key town of Al-Ta’manah, which is located north of the hilltop.

“Rouse the Believers”? I can see how some gay captain from UNSCOM/CIA/WETF has spent a whole day sweating over the name of this glorious offensive of their proxies

This is an excellent progress from SAA & Russians getting into Southern Idlib. They have to be more & more careful with the VBIEDs and Mines & IEDs placed on the roads or at strategic locations, the sappers & de-mining team are going to have their hands full. SAA also has to be very careful Turki / Western Nations have supplied a lot of ATGMs to these headchopping Jihadi Terrorists and must ensure to take necessary precautions to safe guard their tanks, BMP armor, pick up trucks & other vehicles and ensure to avoid large gathering of dismounted soldiers.

Excelente noticia para el pueblo Sirio, los militares Sirios deben darse cuenta no es bueno conceder tiempo alguno a los terroristas, los llamados alto al fuego sólo sirven para abastecer y fortalecer a los terroristas por parte de Erdogan.

The Terrorists in East Ghouta & Douma surrendered to the Russian Mediators on a Pre Condition that they will surrender their heavy weapons and release the syrian prisoners held over 2 to 4 years only if they are allowed to leave with their family to Idlib with safety. Russians accepted this in consultation with the Syrian Government as it ensured that Syrian Govt got back the East Ghouta & Douma and other places. A promise is a Promise. Both Russians & Syrian Govt ensured that the terrorists were allowed to go to Idlib with just their personal assult rifle &… Read more »

As far as I am aware all or most of those terrorists that surrendered under this agreement are abiding by it not causing trouble. Also they had their families with them so would have fought tooth and nail to the end . It was a prudent move too reduce destruction of towns and cities and of course save the lives of SAA soldiers who would have been killed or seriously wounded had they attacked and taken every area by force. There were many many places where this was used to win total control of. The terrorists causing problems are HTS… Read more »
