I think these are the toughest, baddest motherfuckers in MENA right now.

I recon this should be their first objective - securing the m5 to Aleppo (red). Then they should secure the land coloured green - providing a route to the coastal regions and ensuring that the Russian bases are safe.
What do you guys think they'll do?
That's definitely the most convenient path, but i think politics will get in the way of it.
We don't know if Russia is willing to push their luck with the t*rks right now and their main objective is taking Jabal Zawiya/Latakia to stop the drones and artillery from hitting Hmeimim.
They are bombing south east CS of Marat al-Numan though, we'll see if the offensive continue now that HTS are thoroughly exhausted.

MOSCOW, August 22. /TASS/. A naval group of Russia’s Northern Fleet has crossed the Strait of Gibraltar and entered the Mediterranean Sea as part of its deployment in distant waters, the Fleet’s press office reported on Thursday.
>"A group of the Northern Fleet’s ships and support vessels led by the missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov has entered the Mediterranean Sea through the Strait of Gibraltar," the press office said in a statement.
The Russian sailors will make business calls at foreign ports and conduct various drills, including naval exercises for inter-operability with the warships of other Fleets within the Russian Navy.
The missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov will soon replenish fuel supplies from the medium oceanic tanker Vyazma. The sailors will also hold anti-submarine warfare and anti-subversion drills for the defense of a group of warships during anchorage in an unsafe roadstead.
The missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov left the home base of Severomorsk on July 3. Over this period, the warship’s crew took part in Russia’s Main Naval Parade in St. Petersburg on July 28 and in the Russian Navy’s Ocean Shield 2019 large-scale drills.
>Army broadens scale control in the southern part of Idleb Province and inflicts heavy losses upon the terrorists
Army units continued military operations against Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization and the affiliated groups in the areas of Khan Sheikhoun and al-Tamanaa.
News reporter said that army units clashed with terrorist groups affiliated to Jabhat al-Nusra on the frontline of strategic Tal al-Rai area located between the towns of al-Tamanaa and Morek, leaving many of the terrorists either killed or injured.
The reporter clarified that army units targeted the terrorists’ movements at the outskirts of Khan Sheikhoun area, destroying vehicles and killing many of the terrorists.
In parallel, heavy losses were inflicted upon the terrorists in weaponry and personnel after intensive operations of the army against the terrorists’ fortifications at the outskirts of Maaret al-Numan, Tarmala, al-The and Maarshrin in the southern part of Idleb province.

Thanks. Its been some time since i last went to Turkey
I don't understand why the T*rks are being such a hindrance. I thought they came to a deal with the SAR last year, whereby Turkey would ignore the SAA BTFOing HTS in exchange for Turkey being allowed to BTFO the Kurds without Damascus intervening (America notwithstanding). Turkey's only influence on this war has been in preventing mad gains and it's really starting to annoy me tbqh.
Stopping the Idlibeans from fleeing into T*rkey i guess.

Handing over Syrian clay to T*rkey again, fucking k*rds.
With Sayyad under SAA control, Kafr Zita has fallen militarily, there might be some suicidal radicals here and there but largely it seems the reports of the towns being deserted is true and there is barely if any resistance, just SAA combing the places in a slow pace so as to avoid ambushes.
Haven't seen a single report of clashes in the pocket either, it's finito.

>Army regains control over Latamina, Kafar Zita, Latmin, Morek , M’aerkaba ,and al-Lahaya towns in Hama countryside
Syrian Arab Army’s units on Friday regained control over towns of of Latamina, Kafar Zita, Latmin, Morek , M’aerkaba ,and al-Lahaya in Hama northern countryside, and eliminated the last terrorists’ remnants in them, following establishing control over strategic city of Khan Sheikhoun in Idleb southern countryside.
reporter said that army units established control over Khan Sheikhoun city in Idleb southern countryside, combed the city from terrorists’ remnants, and continued the operations to the south towards the terrorist organizations’ positions in Hama northern countryside, restoring control over Latamina, Kafar Zita, Latmin, Morek , M’aerkaba ,and al-Lahaya owns after clashes with Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists.
I meant Hama city, desu
Some sniper loot, the FAL and polymer SVD are neat.
Hama city was out of range for howitzers and old GRAD rockets before the offensive, but Hama city can still be reached with modernized GRAD rockets and drones that are usually aimed at Hmeimin but target Hama airport as well now and then (far too pricey for targeting civilian infrastructure).
Pro-SAA/RU media loves bringing up the Christian cities in northern Hama being targeted and now being safe because it showcases that the opposition is "literally al-Qaeda and ISIS that wants to eradicate Christians" (in many aspects they are), an excellent propaganda tool to justify the offensive to anyone that isn't "literally al-Qaeda and ISIS".
This is the only reason why you hear about Hama being safe from rebel shelling.

Things are really heating up, S-3/400 for Iraq SOON i reckon.
Tonight there has been some shelling and flares launched by SAA on NW axis of Aleppo city, Haritan being specifically mentioned.
Nothing to get hyped about but odd activity nevertheless.
Sorry, Snus - I was merely repeating what others said, I bow to your superior knowledge in this matter.
The next move (granted there isn't a Rus-Tr agreement leading to another post Abu Duhur-tier snoozefest) will be Rakaya and Kafr Sejna.
From there it's either north Ma'arr Zita->Kafranbel or west Shaykh Mustafa(will fall with Kafr Sejna)->Naqeer->Aryna->Ba`rabu->Tarmala->Jabal Shahshbo.
If Russia feels like humiliating the t*rks further, going north for Maarrat al-Numan, and SAA can spare the offensive manpower, they could launch offensives on two axes - from Kfar Sejena to Kafranbel and Khan Sheikhun to Talmenes, eventually meeting south of Maarrat al-Numan and creating another kotel.
Disclaimer: The competent units of HTS have been thoroughly exhausted during the latest offensive but the condition of Ahrar al-Sham and Suqour al-Sham (big (or atleast used to be) in the Maarrat al-Numan area) is largely unknown since they operate under the NLF banner now.
If NLF aren't as exhausted as HTS and would actually put up a fight, the al-Tah->Talmenes front might have similar results as the Sukayk front.

>>239894>Even though the Russian airstrikes on Idlib hasn't stopped yet, i'm still worried Putin will cuck.
I think maybe for a while, but RF is really determined to deal with the jihadi problem in Syria. They later run away and radicalize Ruskies in RF, they pound Hmeimim I think it's enough for Putang to keep up the ops.
As am I Snus, as am I.
>>239895>I think maybe for a while
At this point, halting the offensive even a week for anything other than letting the t*rks leave their observation posts or SAA needing a break/regrouping/consolidating gains would be cucking in my book.
The offensive to secure Hmeimim, opening the M-5 and removing jihadis from the demilitarization zone is already entirely justified in accordance with the agreement, letting the exhausted jihadis regroup now because of Erdogan (who failed to achieve a single objective) whining is unacceptable.
>>239902>At this point, halting the offensive even a week (...) would be cucking in my book.
Sure I understand your point of view but an official visit (state or official, not work visit) in diplomacy means you have to cuck a bit. It's just how it works. Said week builds positive relation between mentioned countries enough for the diplomats to wank each other - and the offensive can simply resume after some time. Say after they'll shoot Khmeimim again or an Uyghur fuck will stab someone in Moscow metro.
For short: diplomacy is pretty much working the same as it was 1000 years ago. We've just gotta deal with it.
I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why Russia is expected to cuck when T*rkey supplied the jihadis with artillery and kornets, sent NLF and TFSA to fight alongside the very jihadis they call terrorists and lets jihadis launch artillery and ATGMs from the vicinity of their observation posts.

Because antagonizing major NATO member from it's alliance by selling them RF produced systems requires concessions. If Putang went "fugg you Erdo :DD tage dat OPs from Idleb huehue or else.." finalizing the S400 deal and starting the Su57 deal could become a problem. Meanwhile if they play it soft RF can keep it diplomatical leverage on a major geopolitical goal sacrificing something as tiny as a random grad rocket landing in Hmeimim and an offensive halt for a week or two.
You're right, I'm too focused on getting this shit over with.
Sorry buddy, rarely happens - but I'm sober.
New at-Tanf boogaloo by the way:
>A new demonstration against crimes of Qasad militia in the countryside of Deir Ezzor
Residents of the two villages of al-Azba and M’eizila in the northern countryside of Deir Ezzor held on Saturday a demonstration protesting the crimes of Qasad separatist militia, backed by US occupation forces.
Local sources told news correspondent that dozens of residents of the two villages of al-Azba and M’eizila in the north of Deir Ezzor had come out in a demonstration against members Qasad militia, and chanted slogans that call for expelling them out from the area.
The sources added that residents who participated in the protest had condemned the practices of Qasad militia members, who steal the Syrian oil and property and attack civilians on a daily basis.
>Washington sends tens of trucks laden with military and logistic equipment to separatist Qasad militia
The USA has illegitimately sent a new convoy containing tens of vehicles loading military and logistic equipment to Qamishli city in support of the separatist Qasad militia, which is besieging tens of thousands of civilians in the areas of its spread with a support of the US occupation forces spread in Syrian al-Jazira region.
Local sources from Qamishli city monitored the entry of 200 trucks loading military and logistic equipment provided by the US occupation forces to Qasad militia as they were entered illegitimately through the river crossing of Simalka linking Kurdistan region of northern Iraq with Hasaka province.
According to the sources, the convoy was crossing al-Hilalia neighborhood to the west of Qamishli city, heading towards Ras al-Ain to the northwest of Hasaka city.
On the sixth of this month, the USA entered a 200-truck convoy that belongs to the so-called “International Coalition” from the same crossing to support the separatist Qasad militia.
Washington welcomes increasing rapprochement between Qasad militia and the Israeli entity, as media outlets disclosed an official letter last month that confirms the acceptance of the Israeli “Kahana” Company the representation of “Democratic Syria Council” in everything related to selling the stolen Syrian petroleum by it with the acceptance of Foreign Assets Control Office of the US Treasury Department with giving Kahana the right to explore oil in the Syrian al-Jazira region.
The US forces are illegitimately spread in the northeastern area under the pretext of combating Daesh terrorist organization while there is a close relation between Washington and the terrorist organization.
>Army units continue canvassing liberated towns in Hama and Idleb, uncover tunnel networks
Syrian Arab Army units continued canvassing the areas in Hama’s northern countryside that have been liberated from terrorism, reopening and securing roads, dismantling landmines and IEDs, and uncovering a tunnel network dug by terrorists.
New’s reporter said that army units uncovered caves and a complex network of tunnels that terrorists had dug in the mountains in al-Enz valley, which contained command centers, Western-made supplies and equipment, and Saudi Takfiri pamphlets.
The reporter said the tunnels are large enough to allow vehicles to enter and exit them as well as allowing for hiding heavy vehicles, and they contained fuel and weapons depot which terrorists had emptied out and transported prior to their defeat.
This article seems kind of convincing for me. The meeting could focus more on creating a real constitutional comitee (Ruskies CAN fuck it up and agree to 50/50 opposition seats if t*rks agree for example for the Su57 programme) rather than current Idlob situation.
>MOSCOW, August 23. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan on August 27, when the latter is on a visit to Russia, Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told TASS on Friday.
"Yes," he said when asked whether Putin’s plans for that day included a meeting with Erdogan.
The Turkish leader’s visit to Russia and his meeting with the Russian president on August 27 was earlier announced by Reuters.
Earlier on Friday, Putin and Erdogan had a telephone conversation to discuss issues of the launch of a constitutional committee in Syria and anti-terrorism efforts. They also exchanged views on the Middle East agenda and further development of bilateral cooperaton, as well as efforts to stabilize the situation in Syria’s Idlib de-escalation zone.
Earlier, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin reportedly said that Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia, Hassan Rouhani of Iran and Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey would meet in Ankara on September 16 to discuss the situation in Syria. Russian president’s special envoy for Syrian settlement Alexander Leontyev said that the would-be summit would focus on all aspects of Syrian settlement, including humanitarian and political matters, as well as on the situation on the ground.
Adds up:>Putin, Erdogan discuss efforts to establish Syrian constitutional committee>According to the Kremlin, the two leaders also discussed the fight against terrorism in Syria, issues facing the Middle East and bilateral cooperation
Last thought for tonight: Erdo's easiest deal ever. ~30000 jihadis have to go somewhere. SDF areas for Idleb? TFSA goes on SDF with RF green light, RF&SAA gets full green light on Idleb. Easy, simple, theoretically profitable for both. Risky as fuck for Syria.

>Iraq Shi'ite militia blame Israel for deadly air raid near Syria border
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi Shi’ite paramilitary groups blamed Israel on Sunday for raids by unmanned aircraft which they said killed at least one of their fighters near to the Syrian border.
The strikes took place 15 km (9 miles) away from the border, said a statement from the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), a state umbrella grouping of mostly Iran-backed Shi’ite Muslim factions.
It said one fighter was killed and another seriously wounded. An earlier statement from the PMF’s Anbar operations command said two fighters were killed.
The PMF said two unmanned aircraft had carried out the attack. It accused the United States of providing air support to Israel for the strikes.
A security source told Reuters there were two air strikes, one of which struck the headquarters of a local paramilitary brigade, while the other struck a convoy of cars leaving the building.
In Jerusalem, an Israeli military spokeswoman declined to comment.
The attack, which took place in the afternoon, happened after a series of explosions in recent weeks at weapons depots belonging to Iran-backed PMF groups.
The militias have blamed Israel and the United States for some of the attacks. The Pentagon has denied any involvement.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted on Thursday of possible Israeli involvement in the recent destruction of PMF weapons depots in Iraq.
“We are operating - not just if needed, we are operating in many areas against a state that wants to annihilate us. Of course I gave the security forces a free hand and instructed them to do anything necessary to thwart Iran’s plans,” he said.

>Lavrov: Syrian Army’s liberation of its territories backed by Russia isn’t considered a violation of any agreements
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov affirmed that terrorism’s hotbed in Idleb must be eliminated.
In a press conference with his Angolan counterpart in Moscow, Lavrov said that ” the schemes of the US administration in al-Jazeera region target the unity of the Syrian territories and constitute a violation of the Syrian sovereignty and a breach of the international law.”
Lavrov added “The Syrian Army’s liberation of its territories from terrorism backed by Russia is not considered a violation of any of the agreements, including those of Astana and Sochi as the agreements exclude the terrorist groups.”
Unidentified airstrikes have reportedly targeted Iranian militia positions near Al Bukamal. AA gun fire can be seen

>Iraqi Officials Say Israeli Strikes Are "Declaration Of War" - Demand US Forces Exit
One of the obvious and expected consequences or instances of 'blowback' from Israel's unprecedented decision to extend its "anti-Iran" campaign into Iraq, with three airstrikes widely blamed on either Israeli drones or possibly F-35s in the last five weeks, is that it will force a deepening conflict between Iraq's military and US coalition forces.
There's long been a broad base of Iraqi support that would like to see the American presence completely out of the country with the Islamic State long defeated, but now that political bloc just got a lot stronger in the wake of the alleged Israeli raids, at least one of which US officials have already admitted Israel bore responsibility for (a July 19 attack on a Popular Mobilization Forces base in Amirli). A powerful pro-Iran faction of parliament has called Israel's alleged attacks "a declaration of war".
The Associated Press reports in the aftermath of yet another Israeli drone strike targeting and killing a Kataeb Hezbollah leader in al-Qaim, Iraq near the Syrian border that, "A powerful bloc in Iraq's parliament is calling for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq following a series of airstrikes blamed on Israel targeting Iran-backed Shiite militias in the country."
The influential and powerful Fatah Coalition, representing the country's pro-Iranian Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) issued a statement Monday holding the United States responsible for facilitation Israeli aggression on Iraqi soil, “which we consider to be a declaration of war on Iraq and its people,” the statement said. The statement noted further that American troops are no longer needed and only now serve to jeopardize Iraqi national security.
PMF commanders and officials have over the past weeks been the most vocal part of Iraq's military and government blaming the recent spate of devastating attacks on Israel; however, following last week's explosion at a base outside Baghdad - believed the result of an Israeli airstrike - it appears this view is now gaining support even from the prime minister's office amid an ongoing official investigation into the blasts.
Last week Prime Minister Abdul-Mahdi had called for an end to all “unauthorized flights” including US drones, spy planes, jets, or helicopters. The directive demanded that all aerial vehicles comply with Iraqi law and operations must be under Iraqi government authorization.https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-26/iraqi-officials-say-israeli-strikes-are-declaration-war-demand-us-forces-exit

Syrian Army troops amassing in Al-Ghaab as 2nd phase of offensive approaches
BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army has begun amassing troops in the southern region of the Al-Ghaab Plain, following a successful campaign in northern Hama and southern Idlib.
According to a military source in the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Army has sent reinforcements from the 4th Division and Republican Guard to the Al-Ghaab Plain region, as they prepare to launch the second phase of their northwestern Syria offensive.
Furthermore, the Syrian military has also moved several units from the National Defense Forces (NDF) to this front.
In regards to the Tiger Forces, a source from the army said this elite division is currently on a week-long furlough after carrying out the bulk of the southern Idlib operation.
The Tiger Forces will either be concentrated at the Al-Ghaab Plain axis or the front-line town of Ta’manah; they could also be split between both fronts.
At the same time, the Syrian Army will also launch a simultaneous assault on the key mountaintop town of Kabani, which overlooks much of the militant-held areas in the Al-Ghaab Plain.
The Syrian Army’s attack on Kabani will be a major factor in the battle for the Al-Ghaab Plain, as capturing the heights around the town will give them a much needed geographical boost.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/syrian-army-troops-amassing-in-al-ghaab-as-2nd-phase-of-offensive-approaches/
If they struggle so much in Kabani I wonder what Qarqur will look like.
BURGERS CAN SUCK A FAT COCK AND THEIR FOREIGN AFFAIRS IS A CATASROPHY BY TASS
Worth a read lads
>Putin says he discussed joint work on Su-57 fighter jet with Erdogan
ZHUKOVSKY, August 27. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan could see an advanced Russian fighter Su-57 that was showcased at the MAKS 2019 air show.
The two state leaders mounted the airplane ladder and examined it. Then the Russian and Turkish defense ministers joined the presidents, after which they continued the discussion of what they had seen.
Apart from the Su-57, the Russian and Turkish presidents also examined a Su-35 fighter, a Ka-62 medium helicopter and a Mi-38 heavy helicopter. Putin and Erdogan got a glimpse of the Mi-38's interior as well.
Then they headed for a Be-200 amphibious plane, where Putin told his Turkish counterpart about its basic characteristics. The presidents also went on board the Russian civilian plane MC-21 and examined the cockpit and the plane’s cabin.
Putin's comment following a joint news conference with the Turkish president
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said at a news conference on Tuesday he had discussed the joint production of Russian aircraft with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
"We talked about cooperation on the Su-35 and even on the possible work on the new Su-57 plane," Putin commented following his negotiations with Erdogan, responding to a question from TASS.
"We have plenty of options and we have demonstrated new weapon systems and new electronic warfare complexes," Putin said.
"To my mind, many things evoked the interest of our Turkish partners not only from the viewpoint of the purchase but also from the viewpoint of the joint production," the Russian leader added.
"As a matter of fact, we are ready for this and will be actively discussing specific areas," Putin said.
Russia is proud of its breakthrough developments in the sphere of military and civilian aircraft, Putin pointed out.
According to the Russian leader, the Turkish partners were able to see, in particular, the latest Russian MC-21 medium-haul airliner at the MAKS 2019 air show.
"As I understood, the president [Erdogan] liked it and he liked rotorcraft very much, including Mi-38s and light helicopters that are used for medical purposes as well," Putin commented.
The Turkish leader has plans to implement the entire program in Turkey for developing aero-medical aircraft, Putin noted.
"We also have such plans on the agenda in Russia," the Russian leader added.
Erdogan's comment on the joint plans
Turkey is interested in the joint production of military hardware, including military aircraft, with Russia, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.
"The joint production [of S-400 air defense systems] is a major step in relations with Russia. There were a lot of rumors on this issue but we didn’t pay the slightest attention to them," Erdogan said after his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the MAKS aerospace show.
"We want to spread our solidary in this area to all the other spheres of the defense industry. This may also apply to military planes," the Turkish leader stated.
TERRIBLE NEWS FOR SYRIA
>Security zone on Turkish southern border to benefit Syria, says Putin
>Putin noted that Turkey is under considerable strain, having received over 3 mln Syrian refugees
ZHUKOVSKY, August 27. /TASS/. Creation of a security zone on the Turkish-Syrian border will help to maintain Syria’s territorial integrity, Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a press conference on the outcomes of the talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
"We understand Turkey’s concern related to ensuring the security of its southern borders, and we think that these are lawful interests of the Republic of Turkey," Putin said. He added that during the talks on Tuesday, Erdogan explained his stance on the issue in detail.
"To our mind, the creation of a security zone on the southern border of the Republic of Turkey will serve as a good precondition for maintaining territorial integrity of Syria itself," the Russian president stressed, noting that Moscow supports de-escalation activity in the area.
Putin noted that Turkey is under considerable strain, having received over 3 mln Syrian refugees. "By the way, stabilizing the situation on the territory of Syria leads to many people returning home: over 300 thousand refugees have arrived from abroad, and 1 million internally displaced people have returned home," the Russian leader said.
On August 7, a delegation of the US military held a series of talks in Ankara, on the outcomes of which the parties decided to open a joint Turkish-US operation center. Its goal is to coordinate efforts between the Turkish and the US military to implement a plan on creating a buffer zone in the north of Syria, which would allow the Syrian refugees to come back from Turkey. The buffer zone will serve to protect the Turkish border. Talks on establishing such an area, which would include a no-fly zone, started back in 2013.

Somebody in the SAA is definitely feeding HTS info about SAA's plans because this has been an exact copy of the Tell Malah-Zakah scenario besides the fact that this time they failed to capture anything before SAA started their offensive.
Pro-jihadi media claimed alot, including capturing a fucking Smerch (yeah right they would park a MLRS system with a firing range capable of hitting the Bab al-Hawa border crossing that close to the frontline) but i digress, the point of both this and Tell Malah seems to be crippling the SAA before they're ready to start their offensive, hoping it will be a crippling blow.
>the point of both this and Tell Malah seems to be crippling the SAA
>hoping it will be a crippling blow
Hurr durr im tired.
I bet the Russians are also wise to this and are cooperating with Mukhabarat to sniff out this informer. But not to kill him, unless they have no choice. Rather, to use him as a honey trap by feeding disinformation to the jihadis and luring them into a devastating ambush before SAA goes on the attack.
Oh nononono don't do anything with the Tigers, they're fine just as they are mash'Ali
There's probably some al-James al-Bondi al-Nusrat in the ranks of SAA, spies are active in all areas in Syria, many visual proofs of that.
As long as Homo Suheil leads them, nothing can go wrong.
>Lebanese Army Opens Fire On Multiple Israeli Drones At Southern Border
Gunfire has erupted over southern Lebanon amid soaring tensions after Lebanon accused Israel of launching aggression tantamount to "a declaration of war" - in the words of President Michel Aoun, in reference to the twin Israeli drone attack on Hezbollah offices in south Beirut the past weekend.
Specifically on Wednesday the Lebanese army is reported to have opened fire on up to three "Israeli reconnaissance drones" for violating the country's airspace, according to the official National News Agency.
Reuters also reports that troops initially opened fire on the unmanned vehicles with M16 assault rifles, forcing the drones to return to Israeli airspace.
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) appear to have confirmed the incident, but didn't specify whether the drones violated Lebanese airspace.
“Gunfire was heard from Lebanese territory toward the area where IDF drones were flying. The drones completed their mission, and no damage was caused,” the Israeli army said.
The Lebanese Air Force (LAF) mentioned three UAVs appearing near the village of Adaisseh, as well as in the vicinity of Kafr Kila, near the border with Israel. “The army confronted it and fired at it, forcing it to retreat,” the LAF said in a statement.
Some Arab regional media actually claimed one or more of the drones were destroyed by the gunfire, but it remains unclear.
There are significant fears that Lebanon and Israel could be barreling toward a major conflict similar to the 2006 war, also after on Sunday a separate Israeli drone strike (following the south Beirut incident) reached deep into Lebanon, killing a PFLP-GC leader in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley (a Palestinian paramilitary group).
Both the national army and Hezbollah have vowed to shoot down any unauthorized aircraft in violation of Lebanese airspace, despite Israel over the past couple years violating it frequently to conduct air raids on targets in Syria.https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-28/lebanese-army-fires-upon-multiple-israeli-drones-southern-border

So from what I’ve gathered
- multiple sources claimed that the ANA in Kunduz surrendered to Taliban and the city fell.
- other sources claimed fighting was ongoing with multiple airstrikes and the city never fell.
- a Red Unit commander was reportedly killed in an airstrike.
- there was a suicide bombing at the Kunduz Roundabout where a gathering of ANA and local officials were at; they were interviewing with a journalist. Police chief was killed.
- General Miller arrived in the city.
- ANDSF are securing the city, but Taliban are still present.
- Taliban claim their objective wasn’t to capture the city, but overrun the outskirts, inflict casualties, and get war spoils. Towards this goal they appear to be successful (https://twitter.com/A_Khalil_Afghan/status/1167822180153012229)

As usual hezbolahi and pro government people talk about how we shut down their drone and seized their ship(Iran No.1 in the world, everyone fear Islamic Republic) and anti government people mock Islamic republic for seizing a ship full of Indian peasants.
Normies don't think, they just pick a narrative(pro or anti IR) and stick to it.
>>240978>everyone fear Islamic Republic
they kinda are right tho, USA and israel are seething over the fact that iran doesn't let itself get bullied plus the Anglo got humiliated further more
>>240980>acknowledging it altogether
No, I admire the trolling effort.
Yeah but Americans and kikes aren't starving and fighting with each other over garbage can.(i appreciate the ZOG humiliation though)>England humiliation
Not an achievement, they are laughing stock of the world.>>240982

Maybe, but america isn't too far off from being officially a failed state 3rd world shithole
poverty rates and homelessness is off the charts, illegal immigration is even worse under trump and there are more shootings per month than the number of days in a month
and israel knows that it's slowly getting choked out by the presence of iranians at the border and their political scene is very fractured>Not an achievement
name one nation that managed to humiliate them this hard in the past decade? even germoney is struggling to BTFO them with brexit negotiations
At this point, it’s just a question of who breaks first.

hey lad, if you don't mind me asking, what's your telegram? I wanna add you

Sorry bro, my telegram has my real info(first name, last name, photo, phone number)
>>241152>our people are too cucked to rise against government
how come considering this government is here BECAUSE the people rose up in the past?
also i can bet you anything that there are more people today in California alone fighting for trash than in the entirety of Iran, ask any californian (or american) he'll confirm
You know what people say in Iran:
Shah upbring a generation who fought against the whole world in Iraq war and IR upbring the current cucked generation.
IR learned from shah mistakes, during the revolution all groups got united against shah, after the revolution khomeini purged most of those people who fought against the shah(commies,leftist,MEK,nationalists,...)
In Iran, opposition don't have a leader because all capable leaders are dead or behind bars.
Also during revolution shah got BTFO by general strikes in country.
After the revolution, IR changed the employment system, commitment to IR have priority to proficiency and knowledge right now(thats why we have a lot of retarded officials)
All key positions are in hand of trusted people right now.

"We will be forced to open the gates. We cannot be forced to handle the burden alone," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned on Thursday while demanding that European countries give political support to his controversial 'safe zone' plan in northern Syria.
Ankara is currently in tense negotiations with the United States over Erdogan's plan to militarily carve out a large swathe of territory along the Turkish-Syrian border which would serve as a buffer zone of sorts where US-backed Kurdish militias could not operate.
Erdogan said one million refugees could settle in the new buffer territory, thus alleviating the crisis on Turkish soil, and ultimately for Europe as well.
Turkey sees the YPG core of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as a terrorist extension of the outlawed PKK. Turkey has of late vowed to carve out the proposed 'safe' territory on a unilateral basis if it can't make progress with Washington.
Also during the speech Turkey's president complained his nation “did not receive the support needed from the world” to help it cope with the refugee crisis through the eight-year long war.
Erdogan issued a 'with us or against us' ultimatum to the world on Thursday:
“You either support us to have a safe zone in Syria, or we will have to open the gates. Either you support us or no one should feel sorry. We would like to host 1 million refugees in the safe zone,” he said.
It goes without saying that the territory in question is not his to control or dole out, and Damascus has slammed what it sees as a big Turkish land-grab.
Turkey has pressed hard for the proposed safe zone east of the Euphrates for the past year ('safe zone' envisioned in blue in map below):
It's also the case that many analysts see Turkey as a prime external party to the conflict that's done more than any other to exacerbate and prolong the war, including fueling the rise of ISIS.
Turkey's president previously claimed the country has spent a total of $35 billion on hosting some 4 million Syrian refugees, but that the European Union hasn't upheld previously agreed to commitments under a refugee settlement plan.
It's not the first time Ankara has threatened to allow Syrian refugees and migrants to leave for EU countries and it likely won't be the last, but it'll be interesting to see if Erdogan's blackmail will witness any positive movement out of Europe.https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-09-05/erdogan-well-flood-europe-syrian-refugees-unless-safe-zone-established

- Farah police chief confirms Taliban control over Qalagah district, between Shib Koh and Anar Dara
- Taliban offensive on Archi DHQ, NE of Kunduz
Today is a good day for an Afghan Districtmupdate.
Thing about Pul-i Khumri is that it’s easy to besiege because it only has two ways in and out (two roads at a fork in the north, one road south)
Judging by RuSOF operations abu ad-Duhur & Ghab Plain
Abu Duhur is definitely the wisest and most probable choice.
Ghab Plains without even capturing Jabal Shashbo first is pants on head, if they managed to pull off some splinter cell move capturing Ankawi at night, the supply lines would still get smoked by ATGM during the day.

>Israeli Attacks On Syria Halted After Russia Threatened To Shoot Down Jets
According to reports in both Israeli and Arabic regional media, Israel this past week was preparing to expand major airstrikes against "Iran-backed" targets in Syria, but Moscow imposed its red line. The Independent has published a story describing that Russia's military in Syria threatened to shoot down any invading Israeli warplanes using fighter jets or their S-400 system.
The Jerusalem Post, citing sources in the UK Independent (Arabia), writes just after the latest meeting in Sochi between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin:
According to the report, Moscow has prevented three Israeli airstrikes on three Syrian outposts recently, and even threatened that any jets attempting such a thing would be shot down, either by Russian jets or by the S400 Anti-aircraft missiles. The source cited in the report claims a similar situation has happened twice, and that during August, Moscow stopped an airstrike on a Syrian outpost in Qasioun, where a S300 missile battery is placed.
Netanyahu's hasty trip to meet with Putin on Thursday - even in the final days before Tuesday's key election - was reportedly with a goal to press the Russian president on essentially ignoring Israel's attacks in Syria.
Citing further sources in the British-Arabic Independent Arabia, The Jerusalem Post continues:
According to the Russian source, Putin let Netanyahu know that his country will not allow any damage to be done to the Syrian regime's army, or any of the weapons being given to it...
Israel sources cited by the Arabic newspaper described Netanyahu's attempts to persuade Putin as "a failure". This in spite of Netanyahu telling reporters after the meeting that his relations with Moscow were stronger than ever.
Moscow is said to be particularly resistant given the Israeli military's recent spate of attacks on targets in Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria.
Sources in the report claimed further that Putin in a somewhat unprecedented moment raised the issue of Lebanon:
The Russian source said: "Putin has expressed his dissatisfaction from Israel's latest actions in Lebanon" and even emphasized to Netanyahu that he "Rejects the aggression towards Lebanon's sovereignty" something which has never been heard from him. Putin further stated that someone is cheating him in regards to Syria and Lebanon and that he will not let it go without a response. According to him, Netanyahu was warned not to strike such targets in the future.
It could also be simply that Putin understands that Netanyahu, now desperate to extend his political career to a record fifth term as prime minister as next week's elections loom, could be ready to risk a major and very unnecessary Middle East conflagration in order to continue to appeal to Israeli right wing and nationalist voters. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/israeli-attacks-syria-halted-after-russia-threatened-shoot-down-jets-report

>Afghan Taliban send team to Russia after U.S. talks collapse
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - The Taliban have sent a delegation to Russia to discuss prospects for a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan following the collapse of talks with the United States this month, officials from the insurgent group said.
The move, days after U.S. President Donald Trump canceled a planned meeting with Taliban leaders at his Camp David retreat, came as the movement looks to bolster regional support, with visits also planned for China, Iran and Central Asian states.
"The purpose of these visits is to inform leaders of these countries about the peace talks and President Trump's decision to call off the peace process at a time when both sides had resolved all outstanding issues and were about to sign a peace agreement," said a senior Taliban leader in Qatar.
Russia, which has hosted meetings between the Taliban and Afghan political and civil society representatives, said this week it hoped that the process could be put back on track and urged both sides to resume talks.
"We are convinced that the complete end to foreign military presence is an inalienable condition of durable peace in Afghanistan," Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
However, it is unclear whether the talks can be resumed.
The Taliban leader, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the purpose of the visits was not to try to revive negotiations with the United States but to assess regional support for forcing it to leave Afghanistan.
U.S. and Taliban officials held months of talks in the Qatari capital of Doha and agreed a draft accord that would have seen some 5,000 U.S. troops withdrawn from Afghanistan in exchange for security guarantees from the Taliban.
However, the deal, intended as a preliminary step to a wider peace agreement, faced heavy criticism from the Afghan government, which was shut out of the talks. Many former senior U.S. officials who had worked in the region also warned a hasty withdrawal risked destabilizing the country and even plunging it back into a new round of civil war.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-afghanistan-taliban/afghan-taliban-send-team-to-russia-after-u-s-talks-collapse-idUSKCN1VZ034

>>242623>A bunch of antiChrist’s going around and murdering people
No fucking way!
I’m just gonna mark districts the govt claims to have recaptured from Taliban as contested since it’s always just the DHQ (>DHQ recaptured means whole district is clear!) while the rest of the district is Taliban-controlled, as is the case with Anar Dara (ANA airlifted in DHQ).
Also Taliban took Bala Buluk in E Farah.
the really funny thing is that it won't even help him win (all polls show stalemate just like last time)
he basically burned all his goodboi points with putin for nothing
You think losing goodboi points with Putin might actually get him a loss at polls? Can’t imagine the average Israeli likes the thought of having Russia as an enemy.
it's mainly the russian diaspora that would hate having russia as an antagonist
yeah, he's tried to spin to this in his favor by meeting with putin, and today his mutual defense pact schtik with trump (won't happen)
still all polls landlocked with no side gaining too much to make a change.

I really think there’s more to this attack than “Houthis got lucky”. Especially since this came just before the Aramco IPO.
>Saudi Arabia: Iranian Weapons Used To Attack Oil Sites
Update: It's official — after Trump over the weekend put the ball squarely in the Saudis' court, saying the US was "waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" — Saudi Arabia has responded by saying it was indeed Iran, confirming that "Iranian weapons" were used to attack its oil facilities.
After the US apparently ruled out Iraq as a launching pad on Monday, following Baghdad's firm denial, it looks like Riyadh appears to be pointing to a potential direct cruise missile or drone attack from Iran.
An official military statement pointed to "Iranian weapons" but stopped short of naming the Islamic Republic as directly conducting the attack.
Saudi military spokesman Turki al-maliki futher said the preliminary investation suggests the attack "was not launched from Yemen," backing prior US statements.
As expected, things are escalating fast and the ball is back in Trump's court - he could be preparing to this time follow up on prior threats of being "locked and loaded".
- - -
While US officials were quick out of the gate to allege an Iranian attack on Saudi Aramco facilities launched from Iraq early Saturday, a theory which the WSJ said was focus of an ongoing US-Saudi investigation, Iraq's government issued a firm denial on Sunday, which followed Iran's own denial that condemned Washington's "maximum lies".
Saying there was no link to Iraqi soil and the attack which caused oil prices to spike to record levels the moment markets opened, initially surging to as much as 18% before retreating after President Trump authorized use of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to "keep the markets well-supplied," the Iraqi government further vowed to “punish anyone who intended to use Iraq as a launchpad for attacks in the region.”
Despite Yemen's Houthis themselves claiming responsibility for the precision strike using ten drones, unleashing explosions that rocked Abqaiq facility and the Khurais field, US officials have long eyed Iraq's Shia paramilitary forces also as bad actors which Iran deploys as proxies from Iraqi soil.
Prior reports suggest Iran has indeed stationed ballistic missiles on Iraqi soil within the past year or so, within easy targeting range of key Saudi oil installations, as well as even Tel Aviv.
But crucially the Houthis have defiantly announced it's not over: "The rebel group said its weapons could reach anywhere in Saudi Arabia. Saturday’s strikes were carried out by aircraft equipped with a new type of engine, the Houthi rebel group said," Bloomberg reports.
“We assure the Saudi regime that our long hand can reach wherever we want, and whenever we want,” Houthi spokesman Yahya Saree said. The statement added threateningly:
“We warn companies and foreigners not to be present in the facilities that were hit in the strikes because they are still within range and may be targeted at any moment.”
Meanwhile, the official US position still seems to be Mike Pompeo's sentiment expressed soon after the attack that there was "no evidence" it was carried out from Yemen.
US and Saudi officials, still amid an ongoing investigation, told reporters over the weekend they are "certain" the attack actually originated from Iraq, especially as the debris and precision targeting show a level of "sophistication" which would link it to Iran's elite IRGC.
This as Trump said the U.S. is “locked and loaded depending on verification” of the source of the attack.
Of course there remains the possibility that the Houthis will again "prove" their capabilities by simply launching another devastating attack. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/houthis-say-its-not-over-saudi-facilities-still-within-range-iraq-denies-its-territory

why? is it just because he's from USSR too?
these goyim act like jews would act among goyim society, ironic

>>242741>why? is it just because he's from USSR too?
pretty much. it's unofficially "the Russian party". people here vote in ethnic blocs first, ideology second.
pic somewhat related.
why is there so much factionism among the jewish ethnic bloc?
i mean ok arab vs jews make sense and i understand a schism between the religious and secular jews but adding extra factions based on where jews come from seems to be america tier
Fun news BTW

the guy leading the polls is favorable to the death penalty and said in an interview "homosexuality, or rather its public expression, is financed and encouraged by foreign countries" also "I was told certain houses were rented by foreign parties... homosexuality has existed throughout history, but certain people want to spread homosexuality"
>maghreboi is going all in
people still feel more connected to their countries of origin (or their parents origin) than to a somewhat artificial creation that is still establishing its identity.
as the old joke goes
two Jews, three opinions
>>242752>still establishing its identity
too old for it, if you consider this "still work in progress" then truly, it means it'll never reach the final result
still lots of people who were born somewhere else. be it europe/maghreb etc. for the younger generations it stems from parental indoctrination, to vote for the party with the most related ethnic representation. so mizrahim will always vote for the party with most mizrahi (likud/shas). ashkenazim will always vote for ashkenazi (labour/b&w) etc. jewish paranoia and whatnot. (mizrahi- oy vey, you wouldn't vote for these privileged white elitists?, ashkenazi - oy vey, you wouldn't vote for these schwartze chaye" etc. only worse since every subgroup extends it to their own e.g. religious subgroups etc). >arab party third largest in polling
it's only gonna get worse
>>242756>mizrahim will always vote for the party with most mizrahi (likud/shas)
how do they deal with the fact that ashkenazim are ruling this party?>mizrahim "da evil white ashkenazim is keeping us down">also mizrahim "yaaaaaaas bibi slayyyyy"
other than bibi and few others almost everyone in likud is mizrahi
just look at those mutts

Doc, you have your answer.
Dems have begun impeachment inquiry against Trump.
Well what else were you expecting from an american game development studio>>243685
how's that any different from the past 4 years?
do they have anything to pin him this time?
Apparently he asked the Ukrainian president to investigate Biden and his son, giving the Dens casus belli to start impeachment proceedings.
This is what MSM (CNBC) has to say about it.>Trump asked Ukraine president in phone call ‘if you can look into’ Biden and his son
President Donald Trump asked Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to “look into” former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, during a phone call in July.
“There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that, so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great,” Trump said in the call, according to a memorandum of the conversation.
Trump added: “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it, It sounds horrible to me.”
In a five-page memorandum of the July 25 call, Trump mentioned Biden only once. Despite Trump’s promise to release the “fully declassified and unredacted transcript,” the memorandum notes that it is “not a verbatim transcript” of the discussion, according to a disclaimer in a footnote in the document.
The call lasted about 30 minutes, according to the memorandum.
The conversation with Zelensky is reportedly a central part of the whistleblower complaint that spurred many Democrats to support an impeachment inquiry against Trump. Democrats are demanding that the DOJ release the full whistleblower complaint, and allow the whistleblower to testify to congressional committees.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had been reluctant to take impeachment steps, announced a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump on Tuesday. “The actions of the Trump presidency revealed the dishonorable fact of the president’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of integrity of our elections,” Pelosi said.
Trump has maintained that the call with Zelensky was “perfect,” and that there was no “quid pro quo.”
Department of Justice officials in the agency’s criminal division concluded that the call did not constitute a campaign finance violation, NBC News’ Pete Williams reported Wednesday. That division determined last week that what Trump was asking Zelensky for did not amount to a “thing of value” as the law requires, an official told NBC.
But Democrats have raised broader concerns about whether Trump solicited a foreign leader to dig up dirt on Biden, his potential rival in the 2020 presidential election. They are also concerned about why Trump reportedly decided to withhold hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Ukraine at least a week before the call with Zelensky.
The timing of that move, which was criticized for being done without a good explanation, has bred speculation that Trump may have used the military assistance as leverage to pressure Zelensky.
In the memorandum of the call, Zelensky noted that Ukraine was “almost ready to buy more [Javelin missiles] from the United States for defense purposes.”
Trump responded: “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine.” Trump appears to be referring in this instance to the origins of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, though it is not entirely clear.
Trump and his personal attorney, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, have accused Biden of corruption over his pressuring Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who reportedly oversaw a probe into the owner of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings, of which Hunter Biden was a board member.
There’s no clear evidence that Biden’s actions as vice president were intended to help his son; other nations had also called for the Ukrainian prosecutor’s resignation. Hunter Biden has not been accused of wrongdoing related to his work with the company.
After Trump suggested In the call that Ukraine “look into” Biden and his son, Zelensky said he is appointing a new prosecutor “look into the situation.”
Trump then said that he “will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call and I am also going to have Attorney General [William] Barr call and we will get to the bottom of it.”
Stocks showed little reaction to the transcript’s release. However, investors remain concerned over the impeachment inquiry as it could weaken Trump’s stance in U.S.-China trade negotiations. It could also delay the ratification of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, the trilateral trade deal that Trump wants to replace NAFTA.

When you’re making the case for a sustained U.S. military presence in Afghanistan and using the “look, we’re only spending $45 billion and sustaining 20 or so casualties a year” argument, you’ve lost
This dispatch from a remote area of a remote province is a good microcosm of where Afghanistan is. Afghan forces are severely overstretched, don’t have the manpower to defend what they capture, and wouldn’t be gaining were it not for U.S. air support.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/26/world/asia/afghanistan-taliban-badakhshan-battle.html
Afghan forced capture a district, until the Taliban launch a withering counterattack and wear down the ANDSF. Local commanders call for reinforcements, but the reinforcements are either late or not there. Back and forth we go. You have to wonder: what is the point of it all?https://twitter.com/DanDePetris/status/1177582834325700608
Structure of #ISKP in eastern #Afghanistan based on infos provided by
- Taliban capture Qaramqol District in N Faryab
- Taliban capture Darah Sof Payan District in W Samangan
- Taliban begin sabotaging communications and power lines ahead of tomorrow’s elections
there's noticeably less government controlled zones than last year
Ah well, I did a lot of research spanning days/weeks on each district back in April/May to see if Taliban were present within them as defined by Taliban activity denoting ground control (CPs/bases seized, roads blocked, etc) and/or govt activity denoting Taliban ground control (mostly airstrikes, or soldiers/police defecting/surrendering to Taliban WITHIN said district). I then checked to see if they were from a year or two at the most ago, so I discarded anything from 2017 and earlier since too much can and does change within that time period.
The result is that the Taliban controlled/were present within far more districts than my previous districtmaps showed since the 2018 maps were based on present activity without accounting for past activity. A consequence of a war being underreported since I had to manually research every single district to get a more accurate picture, but this has improved.
Nowadays, I look at several sources daily. Heck, I even search “Taliban District” in the search bar within twitter in case the normal sources missed something - which they do from time to time.
But yes, even with this taken into account, the Government HAS lost a lot of ground since 2018, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve taken a lot more casualties as well considering in Jan 2018 they were at ~75% strength (full strength is 334K ANDSF) and that was before a bloody year for the govt - reference: they took ~30K casualties throughout 2018, and it had taken 3 years (2015-2018) to reach the same figure before 2018 got underway.
This year so far has shaped up to be an even bloodier year for the govt - that complex attack on the ANA SOF base in Wardak set the tone for the year.https://twitter.com/RisboLensky/status/1087386974439247873https://twitter.com/RisboLensky/status/1087465086577446913
And the fact that the govt is retreating to the populated centers by announcing they’re building bigger bases in ‘safer’ areas while closing CPs in hostile areas is quite telling of how bad it’s gotten for them.https://www.stripes.com/news/afghan-military-looks-to-bigger-bases-while-closing-checkpoints-in-hostile-taliban-territory-1.580570
NATO/US support can only go so far, but NATO/US will find themselves forced to withdraw if the ANDSF becomes nonexistent, and the Taliban know this hence their bloody campaign against the ANDSF aimed at maximum casualties.>Afghans when US talks about pulling out.

Daily reminder to pray to the Houthi gods, and you will be granted gains greater than you could ever imagine.
On September 29, the Houthis’ media wing released shocking videos of the first phase of “Operation Victory From God,” which took place south of Saudi Arabia’s Najran earlier in September.
The videos were showcased during a press conference of the Yemen group’s spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, who revealed new details about the operation
According to Brig. Gen. Sari, the operation was planned for months and involved the Missile Force, the Air Force and the Air-Defense Forces.
The Yemeni Missile Force launched ten Badir-1 rockets at Jizan airport, while the Air Force carried out 21 operations against military targets throughout the Kingdom. These attacks took place over several months before the operation to distract the Saudi-led coalition air forces and hinder their operations.
During the operation, the Yemeni Air Defense Forces targeted the coalition’s attack helicopters, preventing them from provide close air support to trapped Saudi troops south of Najran.
Brig. Gen. Sari summarized the results of Operation Victory from God, as the following:
Houthi fighters captured 350 km2 south of Najran, including dozens of key positions.
More than 500 Saudi service members and Saudi-backed Yemen fighters were killed.
More than 2,000 personnel of the Saudi-led coalition were captured, including Saudi officers.
Hundreds of pick-up trucks, armored vehicles, armored personnel carriers (APCs) and engineering vehicles were captured. At least 15 other vehicles were destroyed.
The Houthis’ spokesman also revealed that Saudi warplanes carried out at least 300 airstrikes in a desperate attempt to foil the operation, targeting even its own soldiers and proxies. At least 200 coalition personnel were killed in such “friendly” airstrikes.
The Houthis’ spokesman noted that Operation Victory of God is still ongoing, calling on Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters to leave the front lines and return to their homes.
The Saudi-led coalition has not yet commented on the shocking footage. The heavy losses could force the Kingdom to reassessed its policy in Yemen.https://en.muraselon.com/2019/09/saudi-arabia-yemen-video-houthy/
Syrian Army is mulling a new offensive in Idlib: source
BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is seriously considering a new offensive in the Idlib Governorate after several days of trading hostilities with the jihadist forces near the demilitarized zone, a source from the military told Al-Masdar News this morning.
According to the military source, the Syrian Army’s patience is wearing thin in southern Idlib and western Aleppo after several ceasefire violations by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in these governorates.
The source said the army has responded to the ceasefire violations, but they have yet to launch any storming operation against Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies.
He would add that if Turkey does not dismantle Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their jihadist allies this month, then the Syrian military will launch a new offensive to further weaken these militant factions in northwestern Syria.
The Syrian Arab Army halted their southern Idlib offensive in late August after capturing several areas, including the key town of Khan Sheikhoun.
However, since then, the front-lines in southern Idlib have experienced little peace, as both sides continue to trade hostilities each day.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/syrian-army-is-mulling-a-new-offensive-in-idlib-source/

>Erdogan Vows Sunday Incursion Into Syria As Pentagon Waffles
After weeks of threats, Turkey looks to finally make good on Erdogan's repeat promises to unilaterally invade northern Syria, as a deal to conduct joint "land and air patrols" with the US is collapsing just as it barely got off the ground.
Turkey's military is on high alert, ready to carry out the Turkish president's orders on short notice, after a longtime military build-up along the border. "We will carry out this operation both on land and air as soon as today or tomorrow," Erdogan said on Saturday. “We gave all warnings to our interlocutors regarding the east of Euphrates and we have acted with sufficient patience,” the president added.
He further slammed the prospect of cooperating with the US on a US-Turkey administered safe zone "a fairytale" given Washington's recalcitrance regarding Syria's Kurds, the ethnic group's militias of which Turkey considers "terrorists".
The Kurdish dominated and US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has vowed it will treat any invading Turkish soldiers as an act of war. In a statement the SDF said it would “not hesitate to turn any unprovoked (Turkish) attack into an all-out war” to defend its region in northeast Syria, according to Reuters.
Erdogan named Sunday as a likely day to launch the operation in a rare moment of specificity (he indicated "as soon as today or tomorrow"), though he's on up to a dozen or more occasions generally threatened such action. Bloomberg reports major troop reinforcements observed at the border with northeast Syria:
Turkey reinforced army units at the Syrian border hours after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signaled an imminent cross-border operation against U.S.-backed Kurdish militants in Syria.
Turkey sent additional armored vehicles and troops to the border town of Akcakale late Saturday, across from Tal Abyad in Syria, according to state TV television TRT.
Assuming the moment finally does arrive on Sunday, the next big question is the American response: withdraw troops or dig in to protect its on the ground Kurdish SDF/YPG partners?
Secretary of Defense Mark Esper during a Saturday press briefing was asked point blank precisely this question. Esper's response was notably ambiguous and evasive when compared to Erdogan's saying it's "a fairy tale".
"Right now, we're focused on making the security mechanism functional in northern — northeast Syria," Esper began. "I'm sorry. I had a long conversation with my counterpart Mr. Akar yesterday, and this was the specific focus of our discussion, and I made very clear to him and he agreed as well that we need to make the security mechanism work," he continued, clinging to the prior agreement with Ankara.
"You know, we have the joint center up and working in southern Turkey, we have air patrols going on, we had another ground patrol just happen. We've got to work through all the details," he added.
"And so I just told him, let's keep working at it that's the best path forward for all of us, so that's what I'm focused on right now," Esper finished — ultimately not saying much that's different from prior such statements, despite Turkish impatience and bellicose threats to go it alone. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/erdogan-sunday-set-turkeys-incursion-ne-syria-pentagon-waffles-kurdish-proxies
