I found a treasure trove of brochures and pamphlets that were present at the 1939 world's fair in NYC. Including one for Syria
Fucking hell, a lot of the stuff shown here has been damaged or outright destroyed
Thank you guys. It means a lot for our work to be appreciated.
It's sad about Palmyra but I'm happy that Krak des Chevaliers is still standing
Luckily ruskies said that they are going to invest some moneyz into renewal of the cultural sides, Palmyra the most.
I wonder if any of the gulfniggers are supporting Aleppo/Damascus mosques renewal.

Sarraj is the head of the GNA so Russia is trying to have peace talks.

Hmm, 3 days into the ceasefire and Russia started launching airstrikes plus SAA artillery increasing activity in both Idlib and Aleppo.
15th is too early imo, i'd give it another week.
One thing is for sure though and that is the ceasefire not lasting 25 days.
Let's see if Erdomeme's threats were just jokes or not.
For those who missed it>Erdogan threatens Assad regime with military action: “400K displaced Syrians in Idlib must be returned to their homes. If necessary we’ll stop regime’s attempts to break the ceasefire on our own. Everyone should see that we don’t joke, we will do whatever we say”>Erdogan issues a veiled military threat to Haftar
“If coupist Haftar continues it’s against the legitimate Libyan govt and our brethren there, we won’t hesitate to teach him the lesson he deserves” https://twitter.com/ragipsoylu/status/1217014576258088960

Calling it the "Tiger Forces' northern flank" is wrong though as this is the 5th's front.

Empty talk, they have a "safe zone" on their border already and neither the M-4 nor M-5 run near it.
Remains to be seen if they'll further prop up their proxies and literally al-Qaeda to retain the highways.

In the 2020 adress, Putin proposed several changes to the Russian constitution that are aimed at strengthening the Russian Federation’s national sovereignty.
Among others, the proposals include the following:
• To guarantee the primacy of the Constitution of the Russian Federation on the territory of Russia over international law and international treaties. Previously, the Russian state followed the principle of the primacy of international law over its national laws.
• To ban prime ministers, governors and other key officials to have foreign citizenship or residence permit at the constitutional level.
• To update the requirement for presidential candidates. This should include the residence in Russia for 25 years and the absence of foreign citizenship.
• To introduce in the Constitution the corresponding status and role of the State Council (an advisory body to the Russian head of state).
• To increase the responsibility of the Federal Assembly (the two-chamber Parliament) for the formation and activities of the government and entrust the State Duma (the lower house of the Parliament) with the approval of the prime minister. The President will not have the right to reject the approved candidacy.
• The President should appoint of heads of law enforcement agencies, after consultation with the Federation Council.
• To strengthen the role of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation. At the request of the president, it should verify the constitutionality of bills and other documents.
• To allow the Federation Council (the upper house of the Parliament), on the recommendation of the President of Russia, to remove from office judges of the Constitutional and Supreme Courts in response to their misconduct defaming honor and dignity.https://southfront.org/putins-annual-address-nationalization-of-elites-and-strengthening-of-russian-national-sovereignty/
Tl;dr these amendments are aimed at reinforcing Russian sovereignty.

Haven't seen any reports of arty/airstrikes hitting Kafr Hamra/Haritan/Anadan on the NW front of Aleppo so a direct assault on this salient is improbable, working on the west/southwest/south axis is more likely.
Can't really find any weak spots to take advantage of in the Aleppo front though and arty/airstrikes aren't that effective when the jihadis have been busy digging tunnels for years.
If the 4th aren't ready to brute force to punch a hole somewhere by zerging tanks (more than 3 at a time) straight into ATGM fire this will be another Jobar/Kabani.
Also, the jihadis definitely have several defensive lines in all villages/towns near the frontline.
This will be a shitfest.

Some dopey looking cunt in front of a TOS-1
Pretty amazing what the 5th corps, Liwa al-Quds & co managed to do this week. Not only did they lose Abu Jurayf and Tall Khatrah, they also lost and failed to recapture an important fortified hill they've held since the Abu Duhur offensive.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.746416&lon=36.953276&z=17&m=bs&show=/39881093/Tal-Mustayfi
This front isn't getting anywhere, it's another Tamanah disaster now that HTS & co has reinforced it and NLF got a green light to launch ATGMs.
Hopefully the tigers will come true with their promise of surprises and the 4th brings the heat to the Aleppo front for real.

SAA lost like two ATGM launchers and an AGS, probably all from the fortified houses visible at the start.

40 Syrian forces killed, scores wounded in militant attack in Idlib
Up to 40 Syrian soldiers have been killed and 80 others wounded in a multi-pronged attack by militants in the northwestern province of Idlib.
Syria’s official news agency SANA cited a military source as saying that militants launched “fierce attacks with large numbers” on the country’s army positions in the northwestern province early on Thursday.
SANA said the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, launched the attacks with the use of various types of weapons, including booby-trapped vehicles, to break through some of the army’s positions in the areas of al-Samaka and al-Tah in Idlib.https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2020/01/23/616881/Syria-Idlib-militant-attack-Syrian-soldiers-Russia
This is sourced from the Ru-MoD and included the battles for Abu Jurayf and Tal Khatrah (not a single attack).
If the jihadists made such a succesful attack in a single day the commotion would be much bigger and they would publish corpses instead of only the loot.
Bad translations or propaganda to justify resuming the operations, pick your poison.
Furthermore, the only successful raids beside ATGM attacks have been on the 5th corps(e) front where the Tigers have no presence.
I'm not denying the last 10 days have been brutal for the SAA but the Tigers have been successful in defending their gains as the tweet pointed out.
>>256671>supposedly a sniper nest
It's around 3,5-3,8km from the nearest frontline so probably at most it's used as a spotting location and ATGM nest now but could be lethal if SAA decided to advance in it's direction.
Not saying my 2018 Aleppo predicshun will happen but it definitely will.

>>256804>says while packing up and going innawooods
Of course the offensive reignites when i get drunk and busy for the weekend.
Ok i'm home now and trying to ANALize and consolidate the gains.
Fucking nocturnal yoink of Maar Shamarin, Dayr Sharqi & Gharbi + Kursiyan and Abu Jurayf (Kursiyan was a big launching point for a lot of attacks on that front so it's a big gain for the 5th, arguably the reason why they lost their gains, see pic).
The gains near Maarrat al-Numan were way overdue but i'm happy the 5th are making gains alongside as was the norm when the offensive began.
TF forcing their way into Maar Shamshah and Talmenes tomorrow night will be the death bell for Maarrat al-Numan and Kafrumah-Kafranbel, THE Ahrar al-Sham main bastion. Let's see how this impacts the Aleppo front (which has alot of AAS fighters involved.)

Syria Shitmupdate - advance near Maarat al-Nu’man
>>256863> i think Maar Shamshah and Talmenes will be taken first.
Telmenes town has fallen militarily and the forces are working on combing it and installing points on its perimeter in order for it to be declared safe.
The forces' advance is now towards Maarshamsha with aerial bombardment at the militants' positions.
military significance of Tal Menes
1. Fire control over the Aleppo - Damascus highway & the eastern front of the city of Maarat al-Numan.
2. Fire control over Wadi Deif military base & monitoring the militants inside it
3. Supervision of supply roads to Marshurin & Babilahttps://twitter.com/SyriaGeneral/status/1221132306972364800

Syria Shitmupdate - SAA at outskirts of Maarat al-Nu’man.
>>257104>What do you think about the outbreak so far?
an overblown meme
china has learned from their poor management of the 2003 epidemic and is going overkill on the safety measures which make it look like it's annuda black plague.
all in all lethality rate for all these past epidemic has been very low (the swine flu had a lethality of 0.01 to 0.03% if contracted and among the dead, the eldery and children are over-represented, and the so called super deadly spanish flu of the 1918 that killed more people than WW1 had a lethality rate of 2-3% and that was at a time where modern antibiotics didn't exist)
the whole big deal with it, is if you have 1 billion people getting infected, 1 million will die which make it look like a super deadly virus. so when you see high numbers of deaths, remember that it's a question of perspective, don't forget that china has a huge population and thus it might be misleading to only look at raw numbers
Quwat al-Ridha (Hezbollah-trained Syrian Shia militia) are involved in the Aleppo battles.
Queue the muh Iran led offensive accusations
Thank you for your answer and insights. Cheers to it being overblown, hopefully, since locking down 57+M people is certainly overkill for just 2000 confirmed cases.
The lack of movement westwards suggest they won't be entering Maraat al-Numan from the south but what they'll focus on after the city is gonna be interesting.
They should obviously grab Kafrumah-Hass-Kafr Nabl to the west to secure the city and that would open the road to finally capturing Jabal Zawiya and the Ghab plains but since the 5th would have trouble capturing Saraqib themselves the Tigers might prioritize storming north along the M-5 to reach Aleppo.
Exciting times either way!

Odd choice but ok, let's what this leads to, encirclement from the north of Marat al-Numan?
Capitalizing on the jihadis expecting the SAA to go straight for the city and thus forgot the flanks`?

Damn, I was away for a while, I had no idea hebbenings were happening! Nice!
Now will they go for surrounding Al-Ghab plain?
I bet Tiger would prefer to avoid it,as this is kind of a dire place for him, he got wounded there really badly.
At most they're currently just advancing on villages north/west of Maarrat al-Numan to encircle the city.
I don't think their objective is to go that far west right after capturing Maarrat al-Numan (focus seem to be on the highway) but there's always a possibility...

Granted if wikimapia and geonames are correct, if anything west of R5 on this pic i doodled together gets announced we'll know.
I'll do some more maps of the western Aleppo front...
Unclear if SAA controls the entire or even the two hills in the forest because the info on this front has been so sparse, hell i haven't seen any specific building complexes in the forest like the zoo, flamingo restaurant or the forest resort mentioned.
Gonna leave the Khan Touman front like this because i have no clue besides SAA controlling territory further west than my geolocated spot.

Yeah the reports of SAA being in Tal Mardikh were most probably fake news.
Besides i think they'll go for Kafr Battikh and Dadikh to secure the flank before going into Tall Mardikh.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.788368&lon=36.744461&z=14&m=bs&gz=0;367221879;357822751;0;0;117588;220695
If they advance directly towards Saraqib the jihadis on the Abu Duhur front will probably evacuate before the town falls.
Hell, they'll probably evacuate everything east of the M-5 all the way to al-Eis.
However i think the Tigers will take a break after (or even before) capturing Saraqib just to solidify their gains and move artillery etc.

Shortening the frontline does make sense and they probably want to control more than just the southern entrance to Saraqib before storming it so it makes sense that they would clear the south-southeast-east countryside.
Also seen unconfirmed reports that Bulaysa has been captured but i think the phrase "has been purified" (i.e shelled/bombed) that is used by some reporters is getting mistaken and many of these villages aren't captured.

Also I really love the contrast on that map. A picture is truly 1000 words.
Notice how dark the rebel areas look. Dark, gloomy, murky green. This is to reflect the bleak future of the jihadis and also life under jihadist rule. Certainly not a place I’d want to be.
Then contrast that with the red areas. Bright, clear, illuminating. This is to reflect a brighter future under Assad. Certainly better than what the jihadists would ever offer. I’d certainly want to live in the red areas if given the choice of red or green.
Some villages around Al-Bab were captured by SNA..
but then SAA counterattacked and everything is ok
I love how they surrounded Saraqib with so many cucksheds, so desperate.

I think they withdrew because t*rk was yelled at by Russia.>I love how they surrounded Saraqib with so many cucksheds, so desperate.
Yep, Saraqib is the gate to the Idlib plains for SAA and the t*rks know it.
Oh, so Volodia (as of yet) allows Bashar to play and keeps Papa Roach on leash?
Interesting, maybe Erdomeme actually wants to get rid of radical elements from his pawns, as shipping them to Libya is not really effective.
There's no offensive SAA units near al-Bab that could launch a counteroffensive that fast.
It does look like a radical faction of TFSA/SNA were behind it and they got scolded big time because this attack is a casus belli that Erdo doesn't want at all right now.
At this point, if the t*rks won't let SAA take Saraqib, the SAA should turn their focus on Ariha and Jabal Zawiya in my opinion.

Holy shit they're not stopping, if they capture Saraqib the t*rks will be so humiliated i don't think they can accept it happening.
Some are speculating that SAA will go for Ariha but capturing Tarnaba and the silos is enough to convince me they're going all in on capturing Saraqib.

>They were not in the checkpoints... Turks escaped from the Turnaba observation point

If SAA takes control of Saraqib tonight we'll know that T*rkey has lost in Idlib and Russia are giving the SAA free reign to liberate the rest.
This statement is a revenge against Russia for letting T*rkey lose.

Some mappers are no longer including the little Turkish zone around their outposts. They're de facto just SAA-authorized Turkish military installations on Syrian territory at this point.
According to militant supporters the jihadists have "launched a counter-attack on Al-Nayrab with heavy clashes inside the town."https://twitter.com/abdozehn/status/1224426843744411649?s=21
Meanwhile according to pro-SAA sources "Armed groups evacuate their headquarters and flee Sarmin, in Idlib countryside, towards Idlib."https://twitter.com/ynms79797979/status/1224432185958006785
Who to believe? We'll find out soon i suppose.
The jihadis haven't succesfully regained a single village with Tiger Forces involved this whole offensive (besides making them temporarily retreat from a tiny hamlet or two) but the long battle for Saraqib paired with the fact that they only have one angle of approach into city indicates they might've ran into some trouble.
Halting the storming to deal with a counterattack is highly likely.

Imagine that by the way, SAA broke into the M-4 like 8km from Idlib city and the jihadists can't launch a counterattack let alone counteroffensive worth shit.
They barely defend entire cities so t*rkey has to step in to stop SAA from just waltzing.
Did they really throw everything they have at holding the outskirts of Aleppo and battling the 5th corps on Abu Duhur front or are the airstrikes just annihilating them whenever they peak out of their doors?
After taking al-Eis (unless the SAA units in Aleppo get's there first) they should take Ariha and Idlib before koteling Jabal Zawiya/Ghab and go to Jisr al-Shughur.
If t*rkey doesn't paint a red-line for real and risk going to war, it looks like game over for Idlib.

And another cuckshed added.

After capturing Tall Touqan, SAA just have to sweep the cauldron between it and Mardikh.
After that they can circumvent the roach infested Saraqib and continue along the M-5 to al-Eis capturing everything east of the highway with ease.

I know there's a Tell Rayhan north of Mardikh but the location is based off of the geonames database, that database can be very wonky and since the hill is so far off from the village im gonna guess the location is wrong. Ergo, i think Tell Rayhan=the village named Ray(h)an.

2016 Palmyra is repeating itself on a much smaller scale with the Aleppo LDF.
What happened in southern Aleppo 2015-2016 is more relevant.
Back then IRGC and their proxies managed to take al-Eis but the counteroffensive drove them out of the town + the villages being fought over today and Khan Tuman.
Besides Khalidiyah and Khan Tuman not falling, the majoosis failure at Zaytan, Khalasah, Humayra and Qalaajiyah is almost identical...

>Pegasus Airlines flight PC2193 from Izmir to Istanbul crashes, splits into three parts, catches fire while landing; no initial info on casualties
Saraqub was the distraction; Idlib is the real goal.
How do you take an urbanized industrial city surrounded by agricultural lands? They have fire control on Idlib now but rushing on the city would lead to Kabana-tier hijinks.
Libyan militia leaders in Tripoli told The Associated Press that Turkey has brought more than 4,000 foreign fighters into Tripoli, and that “dozens” of them are extremist-affiliated. The two commanders spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter with the media.
The commanders also highlighted differing opinions within the Libyan militias about accepting Syrian extremists into their ranks. One said the fighters’ backgrounds aren’t important, as long as they’ve come to help defend the capital. The other said some commanders fear the fighters will “tarnish” the image of the Tripoli-based government.https://www.mymotherlode.com/news/world/998023/turkey-deploys-extremists-to-libya-local-militias-say.html
Simple! To take Idlib it seems quite clear that the SAA must now with victory in their grasp to fulfill the final step employ the ol' trusty chemical weapons.
Brb, boarding a flight to Albuquerque. Prepare your anus.
I wager they’re gonna encircle Saraqib.
>>258367>How do you take an urbanized industrial city surrounded by agricultural lands?
How did they take Marat al-Numan?
Obviously they would surround the city, atleast a half encirclement, then work their way through all the houses (the Idlib countryside is far from just agricultural land with no houses, take a look at a map) between the city and whatever towns/villages they take control of before.
Preferably at night. >They have fire control on Idlib now
They don't.>but rushing on the city would lead to Kabana-tier hijinks.
While i don't believe they'll go for Idlib yet and i seriously doubt they just charge down the highway after capturing Sarmin, the Tiger Forces could definitely pull it off.
1 You won't do anything
I just mean the city is likely to be well supplied for a siege. They can hit it with a grad soon.
Besides, i haven't seen any convincing reports of SAA trying to enter Sarmin yet.
You’re absolutely right.
>>258378>I just mean the city is likely to be well supplied for a siege
Well sure, it's fortified but the Tigers with RuAF support have proven to be unstoppable by anything the jihadists can do.
The thermal camera equipped tanks, RuAF support, drones and all the night vision gear they have nullifies all defensive positions during the night.>They can hit it with a grad soon
Theoretically they could if they positioned GRAD and artillery in Nayrab, but they won't because Nayrab is too exposed.
This is also the land of Suheil's defeat by HTS; can he bring it the football into the scoring zone without fumbling it? ATGMs and mixed tactic AQs aren't a walk in the park.

Possibly, then there’s also the fact that most of the rebels/AQ have literally no motivation to fight anymore. They are literally defeated not just on the battlefield but also in their minds.
SAA specialized in cerebral gainz
>>258403>most of the rebels/AQ have literally no motivation to fight anymore
The dudes left in Idlib are still heavily sectarian and hate the Assad government for genociding muh sunnis, killing their sons in battel and barrelbombing cities, but i guess they are just too cowardly to die in battle.
But there are still hardcore fuckers left, will they go gorilla warriors or make a final stand someplace?

Uhhhhhhhh, well, they're confirmed locations around Saraqib according to geonames, the locations are probably miles off, but eh.
We all know a wadi is a valley/rivers but looks more like ditches here to me.
The Sheikh locations are shrines according to geonames and Qirat/Mizara'a are "localities".
>Here’s a clip from the Jihadists chat via their radio channels>The Jihadi says: “The Turks told me that the pigs (SAA) retreated, if they really retreated how the hell is this car down the hill targeted and burning? why is no one responding to me in the chat room?”https://twitter.com/Syrian_MC/status/1225178325338947584

How will this pan out? I have a feeling Putin would rather support Syria than Turkey, and that Turkey is doing a grave mistake issuing ultimatums. Especially ultimatums that benefits Al-Qaeda and ISIS.
>SAA, Hezbollah and Iranian forces recaptured Khalsa, Qalajiyah in southwest Aleppo. Capturing the two towns was HTS' sole achivment in this battle.https://twitter.com/WithinSyriaBlog/status/1225372941543727104http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.070054&lon=37.052765&z=13&m=bs&gz=0;370310497;360574953;226593;0;0;248369
So they didn't lose Humayra? hmm
conflict with kb originally started because america wanted to build an iraqi counterpart to tanf and kataib hezbollah wouldn't let them
New report out today implies they weren't responsible for the first strike; but rather ISIS like KRG suspectedhttps://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/06/world/middleeast/iraq-iran-hezbollah-evidence.html
I wouldn't be surprised if it was a false flag.
israel had been bombing the imam ali brigades and kataib hezbollah in bukmal already for some months now, with iraqis assuming the usa were giving them the ok to use the airspace from rojava, and kataib hezbollah being designated an FTO way back during tanf clashses. the larger us engagement against all shia militias fits with the periphery strategy proposed between israel and gulf states, which targets shia arabs primarily. even the vagrants amongst the protestors in iraq have been targeting shia pmus exclusively.
Meanwhile on jihadi twitter, they're launching a counteroffensive and the t*rkish army are shelling the SAA
>>258527>The city is confirmed secured via radio>Clashes are ongoing west of the cityhttps://twitter.com/Syrian_MC/status/1225394340626882568
Could be some truth to them attacking Nayrab.
SAA twitter claiming they destroyed a SVBIED on the Nayrab axis before reaching it's target, so that means they didn't destroyed the SVBIED before reaching it's target.
According to jihadi twitter:
"Reports that the rebel assault on Dadikh is very succesfull by incite the believers operations room and reports that the village is also almost cleared."
"First reports that after the VBIED, stormtroops of Ansar tawheed, HTS and Incite the believers opsroom finished off the remaining Russia/Assad militias and that Nayrab is almost fully liberated"http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.825329&lon=36.785660&z=12&m=bs&gz=0;367178535;358012469;140762;0;0;695825
Reminder that this guy claimed that SAA were getting massacred in Marat al-Numan.
I'll try to smooth out Aleppo in the next one
>>258513>Unconfirmed: The Syrian army regains control of the towns Zaitanhttps://twitter.com/ynms79797979/status/1225409406692724743http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.055951&lon=37.017896&z=16&m=bs&show=/15400747/Zaytan
The SAA are heavily shelling al-Eis, Barnah and Zerbah.
Race who gets first to al-Eis maybe?
Alternatively, if the southern Aleppo front advances too quickly, the jihadists may have abandoned all hope of holding al-Eis and the M-5.
Jihadi twitter claims Karratin was recaptured by themhttps://twitter.com/Qalamaat/status/1225418125035831297
So far i haven't seen a single report of SAA claiming they have taken it... More twitter victories i guess-
Guys, what proofs do we have that Saraqib is taken?
When faced with this, they claim there is another Karratin in southern Aleppo but SAA never claimed to control a Karratin in this front in the first place.
