The al-Masdar News, a pro-government blog, reported that the patrol was targeted on a road linking the towns of Inkhil and Jasim.
“At least one Russian soldier and two Syrian military personnel were wounded as a result of this attack,” the blog’s report reads.
Last July, a vehicle of the Russian Military Police was targeted with an IED in the eastern Daraa countryside. Back then, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that no one was killed or injured in the attack.
The Russian Ministry of Defense is yet to confirm the new attack. The ministry usually releases a statement on such incidents within 24 hours.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, so far. However, ISIS cells are known to be active in the region, that was liberated by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) last year.https://southfront.org/several-syrian-russian-service-members-injured-in-daraa-attack/

Gee who could've seen this coming?
What will happen is T*rkey will take the cities they're currently trying to seige, they'll capture the M4 and isolate Kobani from the rest of SDF area, probably Manbij aswell. After that they'll Afrin their asses there.
The t*rks are definitely eyeing Raqqa aswell but i think they'll give SDF a chance to give it to Assad. Hasakah/Qamishli is a mystery though but I'm guessing the burgers are blocking any offensive there to not let ISIS get out of hand (bad PR if al-Hawl had a prison break for instance lel).
Not expecting SDF to betray USA any time soon though.

kek. Also use pic for fresh bread at the other place.
For those that are still skeptical of Turkey’s intentions, I offer my analysis.
>Never trust a Turk
I don’t trust them either, but I know they’re gonna pull out since the reason they entered northern Syria in 2016 is now dealt with decisively - ending the prospects of independent Kurdistan before it results in a civil race war within Turkey. Turkey’s actions in Syria to this point have had the end goal of resolving the issue of national security because the PKK was establishing bases in Northern Syria and Northern Iraq thus constituting a legitimate national security threat to Turkey as Greater Kurdistan entails a civil race war within Turkey since the majority of the Kurdish population is within Turkey.
ALL of Turkey’s incursions have been against the Kurds, with the exception of Idlib which ultimately proved to be nothing more than a bargaining chip to use in negotiations with Russia and Syria regarding the Kurds. Now that the Kurds are dealt with in the best way possible (surrender to Assad and peaceful reintegration), the bargaining chip in Idlib has outlived its usefulness and the rebels will surrender en masse once they realize Turkey will no longer protect them.
Turkey was never gonna stand by and let their #1 enemy form a nation along their entire southern border with the goal of expanding their borders into Turkey. It was a preemptive campaign to nip a violent issue in the bud.
Now that the Kurds are handing over their areas and military weaponry/gear to Assad as they should’ve done to begin with after ISIS was defeated, the Turks no longer have a reason to stay. They will pull out slowly though, to keep ISIS from resurging in a power vacuum like what happened to Iraq in 2014, but they’ll pull out while handing over ground control to SAA/Russia. It will be done incrementally and orderly.
>They’ll annex those areas! Muh ottomanism!
Let me preface my points with this statement: Erdogan is many things, but he is no fool and he is not stupid. He has far too much to lose and far too little to gain from that move.
1) Turkey’s economy is shaky because of US sanctions, annexing NW Syria would only drain the economy as Turkey would have to repair the damage caused by war.
2) The West hates Erdogan, and have tried to have him removed via coup. Erdogan can only turn to the East. Annexing parts of Syria after multiple assertions that Turkey will respect Syrian sovereignty would only cause Erdogan to lose his hard-earned favor with the East and Turkey to become an international pariah, which would kill their economy and lead to a Turkish Spring revolt against Erdogan coupled with a Kurdish revolt to take advantage of the instability.
3) Turkey is hosting 5M+ Syrian refugees that they want out of Turkey. Why then would they permanently increase the number of Syrians and Kurds within Turkey? It’s easier to just return the Syrians to Syria.
4) Turkey gets to go home with a victory under its belt after decisively dealing with the Kurdistan issue, and humiliating a superpower by forcing them out. Erdogan has so much to gain and so little to lose by bringing the troops home now.
One more thing to consider. The US being forced out of Syria demonstrates one crucial thing: they are no longer calling the shots in the Middle East.

Although known to historians and religious experts, the centuries-old political and economic influence of a group known in Turkish as the “Dönmeh” is only beginning to cross the lips of Turks, Arabs, and Israelis who have been reluctant to discuss the presence in Turkey and elsewhere of a sect of Turks descended from a group of Sephardic Jews who were expelled from Spain during the Spanish Inquisition in the 16th and 17th centuries. These Jewish refugees from Spain were welcomed to settle in the Ottoman Empire and over the years they converted to a mystical sect of Islam that eventually mixed Jewish Kabbala and Islamic Sufi semi-mystical beliefs into a sect that eventually championed secularism in post-Ottoman Turkey. It is interesting that “Dönmeh” not only refers to the Jewish “untrustworthy converts” to Islam in Turkey but it is also a derogatory Turkish word for a transvestite, or someone who is claiming to be someone they are not.
The Donmeh sect of Judaism was founded in the 17th century by Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi, a Kabbalist who believed he was the Messiah but was forced to convert to Islam by Sultan Mehmet IV, the Ottoman ruler. Many of the rabbi’s followers, known as Sabbateans, but also “crypto-Jews,” publicly proclaimed their Islamic faith but secretly practiced their hybrid form of Judaism, which was unrecognized by mainstream Jewish rabbinical authorities. Because it was against their beliefs to marry outside their sect, the Dönmeh created a rather secretive sub-societal clan.
More at https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2011/10/25/the-doenmeh-the-middle-easts-most-whispered-secret-part-i/
An article in The Forward of May 8, 2007, revealed that Dönmeh dominated Turkish leadership “from the president down, as well as key diplomats . . . and a great part of Turkey’s military, cultural, academic, economic, and professional elites” kept Turkey out of a World War II alliance with Germany, and deprived Hitler of a Turkish route to the Baku oilfields.” In his book, The Donme: Jewish Converts, Muslim Revolutionaries and Secular Turks, Professor Marc David Baer wrote that many advanced to exalted positions in the Sufi religious orders.
...this explains a lot of Turkey's behavior.

This is too gnostic even for kikes, mind you.
Huge crowds of #SAA #SyrianArabArmy #SyrianArmy #SyrianArmedForces continue to reach Northern Hama Countryside and Southern Idlib Countryside to start the "second phase" of the Operation to Liberate the Idlib Region. (Many Tiger Forces Soldiers Promoting it)
Ivan is back.. for now.
During first phase, #SAA will prioritize deployment to areas along combat-lines then border-lines to minimalize gains & stop march of #Turkey-led invasion.

>I can into daily Shitmaps on mobile
Get ready for Libya and Yemen Shitmupdates.
>What about Afghanistan?
I’m ditching the Shitmap and sticking to the Districtmap since it’s impossible to chart frontlines in Afghanistan - almost all the reporting is done at the district level instead of village level like Syria, Libya, and Yemen.
Nice, you know I have a confession to make. I never posted, baked, or did devs updates on anything but a fucking phone.
Ayyyyyyyy, an actually based phoneposter. Had to be Android since I never smelled phoneposter on you, coupled with some apps.
I’ll be working Libya from scratch like the last two Shitnaps I did today.
Shout out to the guys who made this site, it’s just what I needed.https://web-capture.net/
>>247324>an actually based phoneposter
All the time I was very active I loved when people would hate on phoneposters when most of the time during American daylight hours they were posting in phone bakes >Had to be Android since I never smelled phoneposter on you
Yep>coupled with some apps
I used Overchan, which was pretty good. For devs I just used Chrome, then posted them in notes and edited them. I went through a lot of bullshit just to do all of that work on a phone but at the time I had nothing better to do.

Okay, I think I've figured it out. What's your Discord tag?
Also, people on Wikipedia are heavily critiquing my map of the Rojava offensive. They seem angry at me. I - I'm frightened.
Two people have asked "What's your source for this!?" and I think they'll probably take it down if I answer "me and a guy I know online named Ebin"
Errr, I’d rather you post yours first if you don’t mind and I’ll add you.>>247516
That’s why you have multiple sources ready in response to criticism. Look at my updates for Afghanistan back when I was updating the map and especially for my mass updates after careful research - I never went without a source since you have to have a source for literally every edit to that map.
No, al-m*Sdar is not a reliable source, blacklist it immediately.
Anyhow I’m literally just screencapping the Wikipedia warmap page, so ask THEM what their sources are.
>>247518> especially for my mass updates after careful research - I never went without a source since you have to have a source for literally every edit to that map.
Is that right? it's the number next to my name. Seems a little low, if that's meant to be a unique identifier. >>247518
Thanks for the advice. My sources are always the same. Livemaps, southfront, syrianwarmap and your map, then average the differences, but give more weight to claims if there is photo evidnce or specific tweet for that area.
My account name is C. Kyle
if that's needed too?
Ebin! They are mustering their forces against me! Look at this. It's all from the last 12 hours alone. Pic related.
My wiki friends are fighting back against them (see bottom of the pic).
Yeah, some of what they say is reasonable, but they want me to use "reliable sources" like CNN.
This is the pic the want me to use. I know what you're thinking, but this pic was released after the ceasefire! FUCKING THIS MAP IS THEIR EXAMPLE OF A GOOD MAP!
I won't do it! I swear I won't do it!
Well, it's a new article, but apparently using an old picture. Still awful though.
Tch, at this point outside arbitration is needed. Reminds me of the bloody Yemen map talk page where literally one guy held up all the progress. Me, I’m just using their map, even if it’s shite.
Though I’d reduce reliance on Southfront and focus more on twatter since they love that platform. Especially since if they give you grief for twitter sources, they invalidate their own sources.
Really, they like twitter eh? I thought they would treat it like nothing, even with photo evidence included. Interesting. Okay, I just replied to them. Half the people support me and I'm being super suckeruperish in my reply so that, in addition to being allowed to maybe use twitter sources, think I can get it back up.
Damn though, Our maps do look kind of different...
Yeah I’m not too sure about some of the frontlines, especially to the SW of Tal Abyad and that spot with the one isolated village under TFSA control to the east of Tal Abyad.
Oh yeah, that whole area is a bit of a mess. Lots of conflicting claims.
Speaking of conflicting claims, have you seen the death count according to Turkish and Kurdish forces? Both claim several deaths on their side and hundreds on the other. It's like that whenever the Turks and Kurds fight. Pretty funny tbqh.
Yeah doesn’t surprise me at all, it’s always a dick measuring contest between those two.
HOW THE FUCK DO I SAVE THIS AS A GIF??>https://gifmaker.me/PlayFrameAnimation.php?folder=20191018156bJp8jJ5xnJMo4ffmNMMpI
It's right there, a perfect, hd version which hasn't had its size reduced. This is what I've wanted for the last few days. Yet it's an animation and it won't let me save the whole thing. Only one picture at a time!
Gimp. Open as layers. Select the frames in order. Then export as .gif. Set time intervals to 1000 milliseconds (1000ms = 1 second), and frame disposal as replace, and do this for all where unspecified. Export.
>>247762>Only one picture at a time!
Exactly, a GIF is composed of a series of images.
Download all the images, use the link offered to create the gif.https://gifmaker.me/#003
The problem was that whenever I did that, it would reduce the size, despite saying that I could keep it at 100% size (which was a lie)>>247767
don't worry, I figured it out
1. Make 2 gifs (doesn't reduce the size if the frame number is small - 6 or less frames)
2. upload the gifs and choose "combine gifs" option
..at least it works for now, it might reduce the size again if I add more gifs...
Here is the final product.
I did just download gimp (who tf came up with that name? haha, sicko) though, so I can use it as well.
You should make a folder to save all .png frames into because you’ll see severe quality loss when you try to open more than 1 gif in gimp.
Ebin, my friend. I just had a really intense debate with a guy from wikipedia. Over 20,000 bites in data. He won't let me have my gif on the main page. It got really heated. My gif isn't reliable enough; needs to be more like CNN's pictures. I - I think I'm gonna cry.
You’ll always have /sg/.
Turkey has not consolidated their gains yet. Even Ras Al Ayn is still not taken.

>>247848>SAA has control of almost the whole M4 highway and also control parts of the border with Turkey)
I haven't seen any reports of SAA advancing east on the M4 from Ain Issa.
Am i missing anything?

Maybe its cuz they're close together, but am I the only one who sees this >>247855

Upcoming hotspots will probably be west and east of Tel Abyad, and west of Dirbêsiyê. It remains to be seen If TFSA will move south of the M4 and which part of it SAA will control (for instance it's unknown whether SAA controls it between Tall Tamr and Qamishli and between Ain Issa and Sarrin/Kobani).
Sanadid Forces (arab trib e part of SDF, friendly with SAA) are strong south and east of Qamishli so i doubt T*rkey could muster enough support among the arabs there to warrant an invasion.

Tomorrow: Damn, they have some guys who will stay in the North too but at least they don't support the rebels any...
Next month: Damn, they're supporting Al Nusra again but at least...
Next year: "Assad must go, he used chemical weapons against his own people."
Yeah but they’re not gonna stay for long unless they fancy coming under siege for black liquid.
Oh I missed this. What do you think of the fact that ANDSF regularly sees dozens of casualties? I don’t even report those since it’s so bloody common.

I sincerely appreciate ALL of you for providing incredible amounts of information regarding the actions in Syria. There has been a recent surge of 'muh freedumbz r bein burgered!' memes throughout dozens of military affiliated channels. It's been difficult to counter CIA-fed media propaganda without having direct, unbiased sources on hand. Thanks to you poners the pro-war agendas and shill attitudes are quickly dying off to be replaced with disgust or anger. SAWRO 3/15th thanks you all.

What colours should we use for the agreement when it is put in place?
I think 2 should be purely red, the same as most of Syria. I think 3 should be the current Turkish / rebel colour (split between dark and light green)
The real question is 1. It's Russian / Turkish joint patrol. An important question is what colour even is Russia? Should that part be a dark green / red split? Or should Russia get a different colour other than red?
2 should be orange until it’s CONFIRMED that YPG has left.
3 sounds good
1 should be purple (truce color)
Arabs simply can't play music. Same thing happened in every country he's visited in the Middle East.
My disgust is beyond words.

I’m holding off on the map update until the day is almost over in the States. So about 4-5 hours.
That’ll give Wikipedia time to finish their flood of updates and edits.

See this shit? Constantly changing. It’s either mixed control icons or reverts, or more SAA icons, or some TFSA gains. Nothing’s consistent which is why I’m waiting.

He was a tough tough guy in real life, wasn't a tough guy then.
makes sense. Can I just ask how you make your maps. Is there some button to download the wikimap which gives you the towns and you just add the approximate borders afterwards?
I use this site for the screencap. It’s not perfect as it creates weird Hs for what I presume were icons with dead links.
I then download the capture and use MediBang (perfect for mobile) to do my edits.
Correction: i click ‘view’ and download the png.
Interesting. If you're using the wiki maps, I guess you have to use what they say? Like if they post an update which you know has errors, do you ever manually edit those areas?
When I was on laptop, I would do individual screencaps and open MSPaint with a bloody large canvas, make the background the background color on Wikipedia, paste the screencaps and make THEIR backgrounds transparent (selection tool, check transparent section, set background color as secondary color) so I could stitch them together manually in MSPaint. I drew the borders by hand using the pencil tool, occasionally using the curve line tool for large empty spaces. Yes, it’s a long and tedious process especially if you’re starting from scratch.
I was able to figure out a ‘cheat’ in MSPaint by setting the background color as the secondary color, then hitting the selection button and checking transparent selection then rectangle (it has to be rectangle, I’ve tried free form) cutting an area, bucket filling the cut area with a chosen color, then pasting the part I cut out back in its place so I could fill in an area with a color much more quickly as opposed to manually filling in each spot with the bucket fill tool.
Theoretically it should be faster in GIMP with the color selection tool, but I don’t know, I’ve always preferred MSPaint.
It sounds complicated but it’s not, especially if you do it hundreds or even thousands of times.
I’ve done manual edits, usually by copying and pasting an icon of the same size onto the error.
Thanks for the info. Very interesting stuff.
Syria Shitmupdate. Massive changes.
Scotsman got really bored after he parted his ways with Samurai Jack, I see.
Ebin, I am confuse. Your map and this one https://twitter.com/GeromanAT/status/1185663407145533442
show the whole area between Tell Abyad and Ras al-Ayn as being owned by the Turks. Do you know if that's confirmed or is it just what you think. Others maps still show a gap there.
Let’s use strategic logic: do you think the TFSA wouldn’t want to link up their fronts? Their modus operandi in Afrin was to penetrate the YPG defenses, then link up their fronts, then squeeze in on all fronts.
It’s the same here, plus it shortens their frontlines and frees up more TFSA for offensive operations elsewhere.
There are three key points that lends credence to our filling in that area for TFSA:
1. There’s been no reports of fighting from that area
2. YPG is withdrawing from the TAF safe zone
3. TFSA has been swarming the safe zone and capturing dozens of villages especially around Tel Abyad.
Syria Shitmupdate - Qamishli is no longer a pocket
Afghan Shitmupdate - ANA retakes several DHQ but Taliban maintain a presence nearby.
Tarinkot is still under siege.
oh yeah, I like using logic and inductive reasoning to make guesses. There was once three points, let's call them A B and C (it was during the road to DeZ in 2017, I forget their names). And sources confirmed that A and C were taken, but no word for B (which was on the road that linked them) - they would have had to have taken B, so I coloured it red. Then some wiki janny got angry at me and asked for my source. I explained what I just said to you, then finished by posting a link to this picture. Let's just say he wasn't impressed.

I've been doing well. Work, uni, and normiedom keeps me busy most days. But whenever I see a headline about Syria that doesn't do the war justice, or some other development treated as isolated in an article but forgetting the geopolitics, I think back to my FNRs, and they make me think back to my fellows in /sg/. I find time to lurk here and there, and stay somewhat informed, hopefully in few weeks I'll have more time to dedicate to research. Hope all is well on your end, and so ends my blogpost.

asking for a friend, you wouldn't happen to know much about Krakow? he's bound to go here study in the university of AGH in a couple of months
Avoid Nowa Huta district - full of football fans of all the clubs from the city (three of them).
University itself is a ok place.
Is he accomodated?
>>249389>Is he accomodated?
yes, he's coming from a french university that do internship with some foreign universities
housing and tuition is provided by the university
So it's going to be a-ok for him then. Just tell him to avoid OldCity market during late night weekends.
>>249467>Just tell him to avoid OldCity market during late night weekends
is poland really that dangerous for foreigner as the mainstream media makes it out?
anything else he should be wary of?
he's my brother btw
Nah, only that random drunks might try to beat his ass.
Plus, as I said about football club fans, they often carry knives with them. Then again, hardly to see them in his surroundings I bet. He could unironically visit Kazimierz,comfy old district, full of G*d's Chosen People.
Oh and I hope occasional tourist trips from the Promised Land are not a problem for him, I remember when I was there, met quite a lot of IDF hoes on Tinder.

is it mandatory or did you legit want to go to the national pilgrimage destination?
I think I saw one group of skinheads during the entire trip with the patches and everything, on the train (how fitting) on the way to Majdanek. other than that never never saw anything unusual. but that was long time ago, I assume nowadays it's practically gone.>>249473
not mandatory but they guilt trip you into it and since your'e a teenager at the time and everyone else does it you don't can't really say no.
also nowadays it's just an excuse for arsim (local chavs) to go on a free trip to europe and get drunk in polish hotels.

eh, still much better than being an IT slave like me. >btw aren't you too working in the CS department?
nah I wish. never did too good with math. so I'm in low-tech doing IT. that's why I can shitpost 24/7 since i'm glued to screen at work anyways.
what's the difference between IT and CS?
CS=software engineering/programmers/hardware engineers etc. much higher salaries, more job opportunists etc
IT=QA/tech support/Sysadmins/helpdesk etc. the mechanics of the high-tech world. much less prestigious, lower salaries etc.
I do helpdesk (hey JJ come fix my keyboard, hey why isn't my monitor working bla bla). not the best but it's pretty comfy and fits my apatheticness. besides most of the time I don't do anything and just browse away my time waiting for issues to arise
Wish I could program though, the wages are far better. my memory is too fucked now to learn something new. can't retain shit anymore. oh well.
Meh, some shitposting amterial is welcomed in this topic.
And judging on his career profile, he won't have any unpleasant situations.
Dudes there mostly focus on the job/drink a bit during weekends and chill during house parties.

you still manage to find jobs in such department?>Wish I could program though
why didn't you specialize in programing? wasn't there many schools teaching the subject back then?>>249486
btw is AGH a reputable school in poland?
because he's coming (from what i gather) from a good reputation engineer school (it's a private school so you'd expect it from them to have some standards) from paris
Yeah it's decent. Certainly better tech school than my local one.
He might actually work on modern hardware, etc.
>>249488>you still manage to find jobs in such department?
Yeah, been doing it since ages so got lots of experience which is what recruiters want>why didn't you specialize in programing?
back in the day it wasn't very popular. the leading lang was Pascal (it's shit) and there weren't many schools teaching it. by the time is started becoming popular around here i was already deeply embedded in IT and i just sorta ignored it.
If i could start over i'd definitely force myself to study it when i was younger.. ah well, c'est la vie.
alright, thanks for the insights
i may go there to meet him when he'll be doing his internship>>249490
why not self teaching during your down time?
worst case scenario you got yourself a healthier hobby than shitposting with the cyberjihadi known as maghrebois
>>249490>why not self teaching during your down time?>healthier hobby than shitposting with the cyberjihadi known as maghrebois
I tried, I can get away with basic scripts in powershell but otherwise it's too cumbersome and there's too many math concepts that I can't get my head around anymore. your brother can probably explain the complexity better. also no chance to land a job without proper degrees or certs so.. yeah.
but for the younger folk out there it's still a great path to take me thinks. even with all the market saturation and outsourcing to pajeets there's still plenty of jobs and overall it's a growing market.
>>249494>also no chance to land a job without proper degrees or certs
i wouldn't be so sure, creating yourself a portfolio that is referenced online is far more valuable than a diploma
True, true. if your'e really into it you can get around it. too late for me tho dawg.
well, i understand
#US. New Base in North of #DeirEzzor City
According to evidence, US. forces are after building a new military base in north of Deir Ezzor City.
The base is in the hand of SDF. This is one of Syria’s biggest air defense base in northeast of Syria which was occupied in 2013 when Free Syrian Army and al Qaeda forces jointly attacked it.https://twitter.com/A7_Mirza/status/1191134937245765632
>>249498>"SDF" patrolling the euphrates at Dhiban opposite the city of Mayadeenhttp://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.002863&lon=40.510969&z=14&m=bs&show=/12914206/Dhiban
The local arab mercenaries in DeZ military council of SDF (mostly ex-ISIS/other takfiri factions) didn't change their stance towards SAA when the k*rds got butthurt at america and invited SAA.
Looks like they were guaranteed that USA would stay in DeZ beforehand.
SDF allowing the burgers to remain near the border at Sarriin and east of Qamishli (probably because the k*rds don't want to lose control of the Semalka Border Crossing to SAA) is the only sign that these mercenaries in DeZ will remain in SDF.
The t*rks should raise the pressure on Semalka to deliver the final blow to the k*rds.
Semalka is used to pump oil to Iraqi k*rdistan btw (saw a recent pic with oil lines and shit but didn't save)
SAA might finally be using different tactics on the Kabani front (Latakia) now by the way.
I've seen footage of infantry ascending up steep hills and a sketchy report of SAA controlling Dahdo (west of Kabani).http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.721343&lon=36.223683&z=16&m=bs&show=/35392883/Dahdo
Hopefully it's true and the people in charge figured trying the same shit rolling tanks and bulldozers on top of Zuwayqat hill a brazillion times won't work.
Furthermore, arty and airstrike activity by both Russians and SAA looks promising.

Depends how big of a TF detachment gets moved there but it definitely looks like the SAA was actually planning (but obviously failed) on taking the k*rd mountains of Latakia BEFORE taking the Zawiyah mountains on the other side of the Ghab plains all along, Jisr al-Shughur being the obvious target.
Also shelling/airstrikes in the Aleppo and south Idlib fronts.

Russia mulling lease of Qamishli Airport to challenge US influence in eastern Syria: report
BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 A.M.) – The Russian military is currently negotiating the lease of the Qamishli Airport in northeastern Syria, the Russian aviation publication Avia.Pro reported, citing the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
According to the publication, the Russian military is interested in leasing the Qamishli Airport for a duration of 49 years.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/russia-mulling-lease-of-qamishli-airport-to-challenge-us-influence-in-eastern-syria-report/

Who is the anonymous donor?
chinks or iranians
Think about it, who in the middle east would be opposed to T*rkey (i.e muslim brotherhood) invading northern Syria and expanding their influence?
Who opened their embassy in Damascus recently?
opening up diplomatic channels is one thing, but going full 180 on the funding/weapon supply seems a bit of a stretch
Not really that wild considering the gulfnigros position earlier and previously mentioned hate for all things Qatar/T*rkey, but ye you have a point.
Just odd Iran/China would pay for Russian military wares delivered to the SAA when they haven't done it in such a fashion before (as far as i know it's usually Russia directly donating/trading for resources or Iran sending their own shit).
>>249610>pay for Russian military wares
i was thinking of sending their homemade copy of russian tech
i'm more inclinded to say it's iranian stuff but the camo reminded me of some chinese chit
maybe north korea then?
but again it's seems out of the ordinary for NK or CN to send anything so best bet is iran (or maybe iraq sending some russian surplus too, who knows)
It was delivered from mother Russia
well in that case KSA is a plausible possibility, but i wouldn't be surprised if it was USA trying to give erdoroach a middle finger for their invasion of SDF territory
USA buying tanks via Russia to SAA is a bit far fetched considering the current political climate but the gulfoids who's money are a big reason for continued US involvement with SDF.
I can definitely see the pentagon giving KSA/UAE their approval to do so and a reason for the SAA's neutral handling of US army patrols still around/leaving the country.
After all, it's kind of silly imagining what has happened in NE Syria recently being completely sporadic and without any communications.
I'm too tired to formulate comprehensive lines of text, going to bed.

it gets better>They were arrested because both of them kept complaining about each other to the Taliban authorities. Simintov was arrested before too when he returned from exile to Afghanistan after Taliban takeover (And he was severely beaten too) but the only time the two were arrested together was Simintov and Levin both falsely accused each other of crimes which according to each were:>QLevin: I have accepted Islam but this bigot Simintov doesn't want to accept me. He runs a secret brothel. Where he sells, wait for it, Alcohol.>Simintov: He is a liar. He practices blackmagic and steals relics from the synagogue. This charlatan wants me out of the synagogue so that he could sell it.>Foreign Policy asked Taliban leader Khairullah Khairkhwa who was visiting Qatar as part of Talib delegation in ongoing peacetalks about the duo. Khairkhwa laughed and said "yes I remember those two, they caused me a lot of trouble". Simintov the madlad even sent a video via Foreign Policy journalists to Khairkhwa demanding his Torah back, Khairkhwa says he doesn't know where the Torah is, all he knows is that his then-deputy took it.
Fuck iraq and fuck iraqi people
what did they do to you this time?
i though the new iraqi government was more iran friendly than the previous one
surely JewSA is pulling some strings
You don't know anything about anti-Iran Iraq protests?
i know about anti government protest in iraq lately but never heard anything about anti iranian sentiment beside the usual "reeeeeeee iran stop meddling in our affairs" that you can also sometime see in syria and lebanon
if there has been a spark of anti iranian sentiment, i bet the US is pulling the strings like they do in hong kong right now
some more info>The story of Simintov and Levin was the basis for a British play. Simintov deprecated Levin in an interview with British journalist Martin Fletcher. Levin had initially welcomed Simintov but the two fell out permanently when Simintov offered the caretaker help to emigrate to Israel to join the rest of the former Kabul Jewish community. Simintov was adamant he made the suggestion only as he thought Kabul was too cold for the old man, but the older man took umbrage, claiming Simintov was trying to take over the synagogue. A feud ensued, with the Taliban becoming involved after both men reported each other to the authorities for alleged wrongdoings ranging from running a brothel to misappropriating religious objects. After Levin's death, Simintov said he was not sad and would not miss him.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zablon_Simintov

VERY good analysis and very insightful, it even changed part of my picture on the Taliban, specifically their origins as a good chunk of their leadership comes from Zabul.
Now I wonder if Zabul will be the first province to fall as opposed to Helmand, Faryab, Kunduz, etc.
Unless Malikayah is taken they can't be sure US forces won't cross from Iraq.
Semalka is the most important crossing (for SDF) as it is the only connection to "Iraqi Kurdistan" besides Iraqi gov. territory.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37.086406&lon=42.218399&z=11&m=bs&gz=0;421411514;370866794;0;870427;2073669;0

Doc, you around? I’m wanting to know what symptoms there are from sleep apnea other than waking up needing to get air in your lungs - which happens to me on a semi-regular basis.
you overweight? that tends to happen mostly with overweight people as the fat in their neck reduces their pharynx diameter
that and allergies are the main factors, also having a shot jaw bone since it puts the tongue too far back thus also chokes out the aerial ways
either you're a fatass or a chinlet :^)>other than waking up needing to get air in your lungs
that must be a pretty severe case or something else
most of the sleep apnea tends to only decrease the sleep quality and thus all the other induced indirect symptoms (resulting from the poor sleep) quality:bad mood, day sleepiness, bad memory etc
direct symptoms of sleep apnea is snoring and high blood pressure
must have struck a nerve ;^)

how is this related?
he said they could do it 3 weeks ago(when he had the mandate to form a government) but didn't want to "hurt the political process", now when gantz has the mandate he suddenly doesn't care.
just weird innit.
oh well, seems like Hamas doesn't really care and PIJ has limited resources.
>>250295>seems like Hamas doesn't really care
weird isn't it?
Guy was a big troublemaker apparently
Hamas is probably overjoyed he got whacked, every analysis I've read says he was a loose cannon and that he endangered the "humanitarian" Qatari funds that flow through Israel (..to Hamas).
alright, thanks for the insights
After lazily analyzing some updates from the Tal Tamr front today i bring you this update:
TFSA made a push today capturing the villages in blue and approaching Umm al-Kayf (middle orange circle).
For now it looks like the primary goal of TFSA on the Tall Tamr front is to secure the northern side of the canal (black line) and Umm al-Kayf (which primarily is an arab village), not entering Tell Tamr as many alarmists are moaning about.
Furthermore, Sultan Murat Division of TFSA claimed that they cut the main road from Tell Tamr to Abu Rasin (blue line+x), likely by setting up ATGM positions in range of the road, further hinting at their desire to control all villages and towns situated along the river running from T*rkey to Tal Tamr:https://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.772442&lon=40.221634&z=11&gz=0;403304672;366979478;750160;0;757026;72944;458335;711256;168228;924367;53215;1230868;0;1570213;72097;1875082;209426;2061789;141191;2362517
The SDF supported by SAA (supposedly only artillery) launched a counterattack tonight to take back the villages captured by TFSA today but personally i don't think they can keep the villages in the long run since they've been sold by both America and Russia. Holding the villages on the river is another story though because SAA seems quite keen on defending it and sending reinforcements.
So far the SDF reportedly secured the road from Tell Tamr to Al-'Arishah (left orange circle) after the carfuffle in and around Umm al-Kayf.
Another thing regarding Abu Rasin and the river it's located at, it's the only defensive line SAA has to keep the TFSA from advancing east into vulnerable arabic farmland all the way to Qamishli which could enable TFSA to siege Amûdê and Darbasiyah on the T*rkish border.https://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.858746&lon=40.763397&z=10&gz=0;403239440;368472081;0;0;480651;944520;3254699;2238587;4696655;2621996;6111145;2567235;8926391;1975565

Interesting, I actually thought that most left in 48'. didn't know about 63' and that law.>After Algeria gained its independence in 1962, it passed the Nationality Code in 1963, depriving non-Muslims of citizenship.

hey fags, long time since I've posted here but that's because I've mostly been on Discord and Nate and Ebin got ahold of me. I've still been paying attention to Syria but I've been using Discord for the most part, I run a server for happenings and I have a channel for every country. It has a few other /sg/ oldfags on it too, if anyone remembers Hannibal he's staff here. It's not syria related specifically, it's just a server for news related to the entire globe but Syria is one of the most active channelshttps://discord.gg/ByEDpwj
So yeah, Nate and Ebin are on the server now. I'm in regular contact with a few of the oldfags so I'll give some updates
Libyanon is still very much alive and on the server too, but he's not really active, however I do talk to him from time to time in dm's. He ain't dead
Aleppobro (also known as Jad) is still around too but isn't on Discord, I regularly talk to him on Telegram.
As for Houthibro, some of you fags probably remember when Houthibro allegedly showed himself here. Sorry to say but that was a prank orchestrated by myself, although the timesteamp was in Sana'a. I know another nigger in Yemen and I thought it'd be funny to get him to prank this board. He's also an unironically gay furry too, but lives with a salafi family and has to hide this part of him. Also he's engaged to his cousin too. An ugly 3/10 at that according to him who he hates
I've been memeing like crazy with Libyanon and this Yemeni furfag (who I'll call Raz) and Hannibal though and we've even made OC too for shits and giggles which I might show here if people are interested
Snus, Doc and Pingu, get in here >>250677

And you too, familianon!
Just make sure to post here as well for the anons who don’t discord.
I just sent this message to lankabro:
"Hey LankaBro. Long time no see. I know that about a year ago you said you are leaving /sg/, but I just thought I'd let you know that most of the oldfags are on a discord server https://discord.gg/ByEDpwj
(including Ebin, Libyanon, Aleppobro, Muttley etc) and I thought I'd just let you know in case you wanted to drop by. It's super cosy. Of course, you don't have to and you can ignore this message if you don't want to, but I just felt like I should let you know, for old time's sake."
I know he's made the decision to cut his connections with /sg/ for personal reasons. I tried to make my message as soft as possible, not wanting to put too much pressure on him. I'd be very happy if he does turn up. I hope my message got the balance right.
Aleppobro isn't on the server bruv I told you cunts already he only uses Telegram
According to a Syrian Army source in nearby Hama, this attack on Thursday is the just the preliminary assault. A much larger attack is expected to be launched in the coming days.
Furthermore, the source says the primary objective of this attack in southeastern Idlib is to build a pocket around the key town of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, which is located directly north of Khan Sheikhoun.
The source added that the Syrian Army will expand the offensive by pushing towards Ma’arat Al-Nu’man from two different axes; these axes will be the southwestern and southeastern flanks of the city.
This battle contingency is similar to the Syrian Army’s previous attacks on Khan Sheikhoun and Kafr Zita. By creating a pocket around the town, the Syrian Army leaves the militant forces with one road to flee the area. If the militants refuse to leave, they will be eventually besieged by the army.
Ma’arat Al-Nu’man may prove to be difficult for the army, however, as the town is well defended and has long been a pro-opposition stronghold.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/syrian-armys-new-idlib-offensive-aims-to-create-pocket-at-strategic-town/

tl;dr: israelis 2.0
They want their own land, and because of that, they sell themselves like a whore to whoever promise them that plus goodies. Logically, they are pumped and dumped over and over again. Now they are the bitch of America and the Jews, tomorrow who knows.
Also, the Kurds are open commies.

HTS posted an interesting video of bombardments on the Kabani fronthttps://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1196080980752244736
The video is shot north-northeast of the village and shows the slope of Height 1125 and northern top of Zuweiqat being hit.
Another detail being showed is the terrain east of Kabani, quite the valley.
According to Leith/masdar the SAA managed to capture the northern top of Zuweiqat last night but were driven back by a HTS & co counterattack, the video i linked probably being after the SAA's retreat.
Due to the incline of the mountains, i don't see Kabani being captured any time soon without divine intervention (RuAF dropping some major thermobarics on the northern slopes) or SAA first advancing east of Height 1125 (which it does seem like they're trying to do aswell judging on the impacts shown in the video).
Impacts = Approximately around the gray circles
If you ask me they should abandon all hopes of taking all of Zuwaiqat mountain and focus more effort on the area east of Height 1125 which in all fairness seems to get some more attention by SAA than earlier.
Syria Shitmupdate - more ping pong north of Tal Tamer and some to the west of Tal Abyad.
In Idlibstan, HTS gains one village from joint control with FSA.
Should’ve made the grey circles black to stand out more, I almost missed the one on Zuweiqat because it blended in.>>251076
In your opinion why is the SAA having so much trouble with Kabani? I haven’t followed this place nearly as much, and tactics aren’t my strong suit.
I'm getting triggered over the fact that the Northern Syria fontlone has basically stopped moving and it still doesn't look like this>>248345
>>251081>In your opinion why is the SAA having so much trouble with Kabani?
If what Masdar is posting is accurate, SAA are trying to position themselves on the northern peak of the mountain and advance downhill but keep getting raped by counterattacks because they're too exposed to sniper fire and ATGM's fired from Kabani/Jabal Barzah to setup fire superiority.
HTS can simply pop up from the SAA deadspot on the northern slopes.
Here, i asked my wifes son to illustrate it for you.
That makes sense. DAMN, that place is a geographical clusterfuck. Can’t SAA go around it and attack Kabani from behind?
>>251085>Can’t SAA go around it and attack Kabani from behind?

This new video from SAA defensive positions southeast of Zuwayqat shows that the situation hasn't changed much since 2015...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fLZZdL7W6o
Sure they have paved a proper secure dirt road up the southern slope and nuked the mountain top to the point that they can easily keep the jihadists from controlling it. But that doesn't change the fact that they have no solid defensive positions up there and are effectively stuck in the same position since years back.
It's all so tiresome...

Once they capture Umm at Tinah and the airbase to the north of Musharifah and fend off the inevitable counterattack we should see some bigger gains in the area landing them at the outskirts of the TAF base.
The T*rks will help the SNA militants to prevent this though, expect MRAPs and heavier use of ATGM's.

Initial attacks on the SDF around Ayn Issa repelled. The SDF has recaptured the Ayn Issa camp after losing it earlier in the day. Second large wave of attacks by the Turks and TFSA ongoing.
Reports that the SAA has withdrawn are complete bullshit propaganda design to create confusion. On the contrary, they have been involved in the fighting the entire day and are launching artillery fire missions from south of the city.
Reports that the SDF have recaptured Saida are as of yet unconfirmed. This is the only area lost and not regained that I know of.

New leak: Neocons on suicide watch:
Subject: Grave concern about the 'redacted' Douma report
I wish to express, as a member of the FFM team that conducted the investigation into the alleged chemical attack in Douma on 7 April, my gravest concern at the redacted version of the FFM report, which I understand was at the behest of the ODG. After reading this modified report, which incidentally no other team member who deployed into Douma has had the opportunity to do, I was struck by how much it misrepresents the facts. Many of the facts and observations outlined in the full version are inextricably interconnected and, by selectively omitting certain ones, an unintended bias has been introduced into the report, undermining its credibility. In other cases, some crucial facts that have remained in the redacted version have morphed into something quite different to what was originally drafted. If I may, I will outline some specific aspects to the redacted report that are particularly worrisome.
The statement in paragraph 8.3 in the final conclusions "The team has sufficient evidence at this time to determine that chlorine, or another reactive chlorine-containing chemical, was likely released from cylinders" is highly misleading and not supported by the facts. The only evidence available at this moment is that some samples collected at Locations 2 and 4 were in contact with one or more chemicals that contain a reactive chlorine atom. Such chemicals could include molecular chlorine, phosgene, cyanogen chloride, hydrochloric acid, hydrogen chloride, or sodium hypochlorite (the major ingredient of househסld chlorine-based bleach). Purposely singling out chlorine gas as one of the possibilities is disingenuous. It is also worth noting that the term "reactive chlorine-containing chemical" used in the redacted report is, in fact, inaccurate.
It actually describes a reactive chemical that contains chlorine which itself (the chlorine) is not necessarily reactive e.g. chlorophenol.
The original report uses the more accurate term "a chemical containing reactive chlorine".
The redacted report states that the gas was likely released from the cylinders (in Locations 2 and 4). The original report purposely emphasised the fact that, although the cylinders might have been the sources of the suspected chemical release, there was insufficient evidence to affirm this. It is possible the error was simply a typo. This is a major deviation from the original report. Paragraph 8.2 states that "based on the high levels of various chlorinated organic derivatives, [...] detected in environmental samples". Describing the levels as "high" likely overstates the extent of levels of chlorinated organic derivatives detected. They were, in most cases, present only in parts per billion range, as low as 1-2 ppb, which is essentially trace quantities.
The original report discusses in detail the inconsistency between the victims' symptoms, as reported by witnesses and seen in video recordings. Omitting this section of the report (including the Epidemiology which has been removed in its entirety) has a serious negative impact on the report as this section is inextricably linked to the chemical agent identified. It either supports or detracts from the confidence in the identity of any possible chemical. In this case, the confidence in the identity of chlorine or any Cho king agent is drawn into question precisely because of the inconsistency with the reported and observed symptoms. The inconsistency was not only noted by the FFM team but strongly supported by three toxicologists with expertise in exposure to CW agents.
The original report has extensive sections regarding the placement of the cylinders at both locations as well as the relative damage caused to the impact points, compared to that caused to the cylinders suspected of being the sources of the toxic chemical. These sections are essentially absent from the redacted report. This information was important in assessing the likelihood of the 'presence' of toxic chemicals versus the 'use' of toxic chemicals. A feature of this investigation and report was the robust and extensive scientific basis for sampling plans and analysing the data collected. A comprehensive bibliography of peer-reviewed scientific literature was attached to support and enhance the credibility of the work of the mission.
This has unfortunately been omitted from the redacted report. By singling out chlorine above other equally plausible substances containing reactive chlorine and presenting it as a fact in isolation creates, I believe, a level of partiality that would negatively impact on the perceived credibility of the report, and by extension that of the Organisation. I am requesting that the fact-finding report be released in its entirety as I fear that this redacted version no longer reflects the work of the team. The original report contains facts and observations that are all equally valid. The fact that inconsistencies are highlighted or observations not fully understood does not justify their omission. The inconsistencies and observations are based on the evidence and data collected. Further information in the future may help resolved them but the facts as they stand at present will not alter and need to be reported. If the redacted version is to be released, I respectfully request to attach my differing observations, in accordance with the spirit of paragraph 62 of Part II of the Verification Annex of the CWC

The account claiming that SAA are storming al Farjah also claim now that SAA are "attempting to storm Al-Sihal" is VivaRevolt. I think it's misinformation.https://twitter.com/AbdoZehn/status/1198980095978934272
>>251754>I think it's misinformation
The reason why i think this is primarily because capturing these two villages before Umm at Tinah would put SAA in in a topographical disadvantage.
Haven't seen any pro-SAA sources claim that a storming is underway, VivaRevolt didn't claim SAA captured Farjah before Sihal and there's no proper road between Sihal and Khalakhil.

We'll probably see more financiers in arab nations of Syrian jihadi orgs get taken down in a similar manner shortly meaning only T*rkey and Qatar remains.
Will HTS cut a deal with T*rkey or get stomped by the SAA now that they'll be unable to pay their fighters - suddenly Cavishoglu(T*rkish Minister of Foreign Affairs)'s outlandish statement about the Damascus-Aleppo and Lattakia-Aleppo roads being opened before the end of the year "within the Sochi Agreement" doesn't seem so far fetched.

Jihadist rebels beat back Syrian Army assault on strategic town in northeast Latakia
BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) attempted to advance their positions in the northeastern countryside of the Latakia Governorate on Thursday after a relatively quiet week at the Kabani front.
According to reports from this front, Syrian Arab Army troops took advantage of the poor weather conditions and attempted to advance at the Zuwayqat Mountains south of Kabani.
However, following a short battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP), the Syrian Arab Army was forced to halt their attack in order to avoid more casualties.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/jihadist-rebels-beat-back-syrian-army-assault-on-strategic-town-in-northeast-latakia/
