Reinforcements from the Euphrate Shield forces head to the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Turkish-backed Euphrates Shield operation room sent a large number of reinforcements to the Hama-Idlib axis, today, as they look to retake all of the areas that were lost to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

According to a report from northwestern Syria, the Euphrates Shield forces were redeployed from the neighboring governorate Aleppo, where they previously led the attack to capture the Afrin region from the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The Euphrates Shield forces are not only battle-tested, but they are also well armed and well trained. Their experience in the Afrin region has helped them develop into a strong force that is capable of fighting in the rugged areas of Syria.

Two weeks ago, the Syrian Arab Army launched a large-scale offensive to seize the remaining areas under militant control in northwestern Hama. The offensive would prove successful as the Syrian Army and their allies were able to seize many areas, including the two militant strongholds of Kafr Naboudeh and Qal’al Al-Madiq.

On Saturday, a temporary ceasefire was announced between the Syrian Arab Army and the Turkish-backed rebels in the Idlib and Hama governorates. However, shortly after the announcement of the ceasefire, the two warring parties exchanged hostilities across the Hama-Idlib axis.

They should probably bomb them before they get to the area they want. Russia must not let them reach the area. There are articles that say the terrorists want to hit a Russian base(sorry for any mistakes in the text)

It’s clear that it’s always easier to wipe out a convoy rather than having to deal with its vehicles deployed on a battlefield.

There are indeed tweets that suggest that cowboys werd strafed on the highway to the South.

The advance of SAA is sucking in ES mercenary forces. Highly trained? Effective?

Doubtful as they needed some three months to overwhelm a small region that had no tanks, no airforce, limited artillery and a disadvantage of 3 to four against one.

IN contrast, SAA has an airforce, has artillery, and plenty of soldiers while turkish airforce is absent. The effectivity of both forces will be measured by the results of the coming battles.

From other sites I learned that the numbers involved, while not insignificant, are not gamechanging. Several hundred islamist fighters are, in themselves, not about to send the SAA on the run. But enough to influence the outcome if they are all put into action in one single place. SAA is sucking in more and more of the foul islamists.

El titular debe ser: Erdogan (gobierno Turco) envía un gran convoy de refuerzos para recuperar las áreas perdidas en el noroeste de Hama.
Pero la fuerza aérea debe estar preparado para aplastar desde el aire a estos terroristas que se desplazan en convoy.
