The army went through this area when they took Mayadin, how could they miss it?!
Either they're just re-discoviring the place for propaganda purposes or the SAA are dumb as shit.
It's probably both but I'm leaning towards the first.

Media has been uploading videos from this exact fucking same spot (rooftops in this neighborhood) for over a week now. The final footage is towards this place, confirming my speculation the SDF hasn't even made it past the cemetery on Jabal Baghuz.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=34.472670&lon=40.970206&z=17&m=bs&gz=0;409643805;344712019;0;0;132179;16451;123167;18397;126171;11498;131857;16539
This fucker is saying 80% of Baghuz is liberated despite the fact that Baghuz Fawqani and Tahtani hasn't even been entered.
Fucking mongoloids i swear.
That doesn't make any sense, he gives the orders to use the barrel bombs, he doesn't take orders to use the barrel bombs.
I'm not sure…
They haven't even been trying to advance for more than a week now because of the human shields (that ISIS obviously want the crusader coalition to slaughter for propaganda).
However the coalition airstrikes will have no problem whatsoever with annihilating the jihadis fortified in the tiny 1-2 story buildings once they decide they've waited long enough (which SDF press hints might be very soon).
It won't be another Mosul/Raqqa.
Ebin, don't you know that over 80% of the barrel bombs are dropped by Assad himself?
but in all seriousness, it's meant to show his father inspiring him to order his troops to drop them.
Oh, I legit didn't see Hafez there.

>Found this post, /sg/'s thoughts?
Establishing the Case that there has been a Soft Coup in the Russian Federation
• Putin’s initial conciliatory response is consistent with the conclusions of expert observers that Putin would maintain the status quo regarding Russia’s relationship with Israel. The implicit assumption was that Putin would smooth over any incidents so there would be no lasting negative effects for Russian-Israeli relations. So long as Putin was in power, it was expected there would be no change in the Russian-Israeli relationship.
• Putin’s conciliatory response strongly suggests he was unaware of the soft coup that was about to take place – if he was aware, he would not have made a statement he knew would be publicly contradicted by his military.
• Putin’s conciliatory response was challenged by the Russian military which then seized control of the response to the incident as well as media relations while a humiliated Putin withdrew to the background. The military’s public rebuke of Putin and taking from Putin control of the narrative makes it very unlikely Putin changed his mind voluntarily to match the position of his military. This was one of the few (but clear) outward signs of an internal power struggle.
• It can be assumed that if Putin maintained power, the damage caused by the incident would have been contained to preserve the status quo in relations – Putin, having provided a response to the incident, signaled his intent to shield Israel and would use his position to prevent changes to the Russian-Israeli relationship – it is very doubtful Putin would permit a reset in relations to hostile. Therefore, the reset of Russia’s relations with Israel from friendly to hostile is an indication of Putin’s fall from power.
• Numerous expert observers of relations between Israel and Russia had concluded that despite serious disagreements on regional issues, Putin would maintain the status quo of friendly relations. I believe this conclusion is correct. However, concluding the status quo would continue indefinitely implies Putin’s grip on power will not be challenged in the foreseeable future. This assumption proved incorrect as Putin’s position had weakened sufficiently that his hold on power had become vulnerable to challenge. There is ample evidence that Putin was challenged successfully and in the wake of his fall from power, only then did the status quo of friendly Russian-Israeli relations come to an end.
• The end of the status quo also effectively ended the friendship between Putin and Netanyahu. Putin had several telephone conversations with Netanyahu and a high-level meeting was planned where Netanyahu would travel to Moscow to met with Putin to mend relations. Then with suddenness, the high-level meeting is changed to a meeting between Israeli and Russian military peers without Putin or Netanyahu’s involvement. The meeting apparently did not go well. After that, Putin would not agree to a meeting with Netanyahu and the phone calls have ceased. It would be a hard sell to convince me that these decisions were Putin’s.

Speaking of which, this dude on wikimapia did some digging among local sources and Baghuz Fawqani is bigger than expected:http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=34.475253&lon=40.959735&z=15&m=bs&show=/32071379/Al-Baghuz-Fawqani>Shajilah is an old name that was used by people from Baghuz at-Tahtani and Huwayjat Sahin, when they were going to Baghuz Fawqani

But not the Russian military present in Syria, yes?
Because if it's just a small purge of the leadership of the interior, and not of the top brass, then it might be the military throwing Putin a bone to make him seem like he's still in charge to the public instead of the military.

Could this be a shitty translation for border crossing? By the looks of it Aranib is the last sizeable town/city before the southern border.
There's only one border crossing with Chad, and it's already marked as pro-Haftar since rong time >>203837

That's the border with Niger but yeah you're right.
How the heck do they control that crossing anyways, the road leads through Aranib and the terrain to the east is rough as fuck for like 1000km.
There's always the airfield but somehow i doubt the LNA bothers to hold that crossing when the border is so damn porous…

Syrian Army reinforces border along occupied Golan Heights
BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – For the first time since their military operation in the Al-Quneitra Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army has reinforced the border of the occupied Golan Heights, a source told Al-Masdar News.
According to the source, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Division sent reinforcements to the area near the 90th Brigade base in the Al-Quneitra Governorate.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/syrian-army-reinforces-border-along-occupied-golan-heights/

He doesn't want to be wrong about the maps he's posted and his claims of Shaykh Hamad being SDF-controlled for weeks so he's shifting "facts" around but in the end, there's no proof of SDF controlling Shaykh Hamad so it's a futile attempt.

Finally a pic of SDF on the Baghuz cliff.
Minarets, water towers and masts in the background are all in al-Bukamal.
Tried to figure out exactly where it's taken by looking at the angle of the towers.
Masts and minarets were easy but strangely enough but i can't find that goddamn water tower to the left, the one i can find that has a solid shaft is not where it should be… so i assume it's rebuilt and the maps aren't updated.
Anyways, based on the masts, i think the pic is taken here:http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=34.450378&lon=40.938621&z=15&m=bs&gz=0;409029364;344500243;0;0;155501;44478;74028;21144;632357;35034

These are interesting developments, especially since the Taliban are getting closer and closer to becoming official instead of just another terrorist group
MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. Moscow believes that time is ripe for lifting the United Nations Security Council’s sanctions on the Taliban (terror group, outlawed in Russia), and is ready to contribute to their removal if its 15 member-states reach a consensus, Russian Presidential Special Envoy for Afghanistan, Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Second Asia Department Zamir Kabulov told reporters on Tuesday.
"We are principally ready, but this is the issue of a consensus between 15 members of the Security Council, including five permanent members. If we reach an agreement, then yes, apparently time is ripe for this because by limiting the diplomatic maneuver of the Taliban movement’s representatives we won’t help promote national reconciliation," Kabulov said.
Sanctions against the Taliban were imposed by the UN Security Council in 1999 and have been toughened several times. In December 2015, Resolution 2255 was passed, tightening measures aimed at curbing the group’s financing. The UN restrictions also include freezing bank accounts belonging to the group’s members and related persons, a ban on trips abroad and also an arms embargo. Under the resolution, any persons and groups supporting the Taliban are blacklisted.

Is there any estimate on the force count in and around Idlib, by all individually
Russia (as in artilelry, aviation, …)
FSA under HTS
I always thought that if Idlib went off it would be the most serious and biggest offensive of this war. The remaining most potent and capable forces to face each other full out.
I do not want to be disappointed when the actual Idlib offensive taeks place.

well its going to be result in another episode of dothead ((surgical strike)) claim. Its election year afterall.
seems like the possibility of Regime Change™ is real for russia and china and now they're scrambling to cut their costs in the eventuality of a (((pro US))) take over, sounds like they wont/can't put too much of a fight to keep Maduro in charge in case of a coup and now are evaluating the possibility of having to deal with having their investments fucked up just to please shartistan
but again i wouldn't consider this as a decisive indicator of an inevitable Regime Change™, just chinks and ruskies playing it safe

SOCHI/MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Russia, Turkey and Iran had agreed to take unspecified extra steps to clear Syria’s Idlib region of what he called “a hotbed of terrorists,” but the Kremlin said there would be no military operation there.
Putin, one of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s closest allies, was speaking after hosting a summit in southern Russia to weigh the future of Syria with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Feels bad, not gonna lie.
Not true, there's still a tiny pocket resisting to surrender in southern part of Baghuz Fawqani and situation in Baghuz Tahtani is unclear.
Thousands have surrendered in Baghuz Fawqani (women, men and children) but by my estimates there's still a triple digit pack of hardcore lunatics holding out (the women and children being used as human shields included).

Most of them want to go back to Europe (they'll probably only get several years in prison when they return) which, unfortunately, may happen… But there is the possibility that the Kurds will not let them and they'll be judged in Syria instead (and most likely receive much harsher sentences). I swear if this actually happens, I will never speak ill of the Kurds again.

but if they let those ISIS brides go back to Europe then my fury will burn against them with the intensity of 1000 suns.

Exclusive: U.S. general recommends arming, aiding Syrian fighters after pullout
MUSCAT (Reuters) - The United States should keep arming and aiding the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) following the planned U.S. withdrawal from Syria, provided the group keeps up the pressure on Islamic State, a senior U.S. general told Reuters on Friday.
The recommendation by Army General Joseph Votel, who oversees U.S. forces in the Middle East as head of Central Command, is one of the strongest signs yet of U.S. military hopes for an enduring partnership with the SDF despite the concerns of NATO ally Turkey, which says Kurdish SDF fighters are terrorists.
“As long as they are fighting against ISIS and continue to keep pressure on them, I think it would seem to me to be in our interest to continue to provide the means for them to do that,” Votel said in an interview, using an acronym for Islamic State.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-usa-exclusive/exclusive-u-s-general-recommends-arming-aiding-syrian-fighters-after-pullout-idUSKCN1Q429Q

Besides, i haven't seen any reports of the 1st Armored Division participating in the Homs/DeZ desert combing operation.
The 91st brigade of the 1st armored division was combing the eastern Sweida CS on January 28 (picture 5) and on the 7th february they (i'm assuming it's them since the same logo is watermarked on the pics) killed 6 ISIS fuckers in the "Southern Badia" (picture 3 & 4) and finally they uploaded (picture 1 & 2) on 10th february.
Oh there's more, published on January 7 by the 91st Brigade (Suwayda Badiya - Tulul al-Safa).
There was a pic of one of the killed rats at the same time (a group was eliminated) but it's been deleted.

Well this is the US point of view>a U.S. official said Zalmay Khalilzad, who was supposed to lead the American delegation, is not planning to visit Islamabad this week.
>The U.S. said it had not received an official invitation from the government of Pakistan for this meeting which was first announced by Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid a couple of days ago.https://www.voanews.com/a/us-taliban-meeting-in-pakistan-cancelled/4790784.html
Probably military action against Polisaro to finally push insurgents out of West Sahara, and they expect Algerian retaliation?
>>205394>Probably military action against Polisaro
western sahara is the OG donbass in term of frozen conflict
status quo is best for all parties involved
Any theories on what they're getting ready for?
dunno probably nothing of importance considering the law was kinda controversial to implement (du to youth being against it) and it was voted with 3/4 of the parliament absentees
also only 10 000 will be formed each year (i think you get pick by lottery) so it doesn't seem like it has too much impact, more like parliamentary acrobatics to "integrate the youth in the working force and solve the problem of youth delinquency and unemployment"
in other terms it seems more motivated by internal reason than external reason
I see. Thanks for the insights Doc.
also seems like it'll be compulsory for females too

Very nice! I wonder if Julani was injured? Here's hoping. >>205614
Yes. Ah, those were the days…
Thanks for all these details, Snus. Very interesting devs.
>French artillery officer, stationed with SDF forces is fired for saying that the coalition was not hurrying up to defeat ISIS and that this policy increased the levels of destruction and civilian deaths.
Based! Except for the fact that he implied that civilian deaths are a bad thing.

But will it be just "North Macedonia" or FYRONM?
The flag of the Syrian Arab Republic took over the city of Raqqa, and the elements of the "Syrian Democratic Forces" forced the city into a number of checkpoints before launching a series of violent bombings that rocked the city and resulted in a number of casualties.
In line with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's speech to the heads of local councils in Syria, residents of the city of Raqqa raised the national flags of the Syrian Arab Republic on electricity poles, trees and garden fences.
The agency "Sputnik" Russian that the lifting of the flag of the Republic took place in the neighborhoods of the barracks in the middle of Raqqa, near the National Hospital and Hotel Karnak, and in the neighborhood of Al-Naim in the center of the city.
The residents also raised the Syrian flag in Al-Bassil Street, which extends from the children's hospital area on the outskirts of the southern city to Al-Basel Circle, as well as on 33rd Street from Al-Rasheed Park to Al-Sinaa Street.
The agency confirmed that the lifting of the Syrian flag caused a severe confusion within the city. As a result, the Asayish armed forces of Qusd deployed three checkpoints to inspect the city center. The latter also dispatched groups of their gunmen to remove the flags, especially from the walls of the national hospital and the street. Mansour.
A few hours later, three explosions rocked a number of areas of the city of Raqqa, the first of which was an improvised explosive device at the ancient wall of the city's industrial street, killing one gunman and injuring two others. The second explosion also targeted the security headquarters of Asayish, In the center of the city, killing two security personnel and injuring six others, followed by a heavy flight of US helicopters in the sky.https://alnahdanews.com/news/2019/02/19/1197/أبناء-الرقة-يرفعون-العلم-السوري-وقسد-تنشر-حواجزها
Sheikh Humaydi Daham al-Hadi, the current leader in Syria of the Arab tribe of Shammar, co-president and co-governor of Jazira canton of Rojava went to Hmeimin airbase in Latakia to send a message.https://twitter.com/jamlyyyyy/status/1097836750070784000
Not clear what the message was, but it seems positive.
Reminder that his son is the leader of Al-Sanadid Forces of SDF (neutral/friendly with Damascus).
I think a deal will be reached with Damascus tbqh, as i've said before they're not dumb enough to let T*rkey expand a second time.>>205790
It's already happening so whatever.

Just read a Swedish article about: >>205783
His wife is dead and he says he would rather die and let his kids die than surrender.
Article also mentioned ISIS wants to be green bussed to the "mountains between Iraq and Syria" and that some has probably already escaped there.
I guess they mean the Homs/DeZ/Sweida/Anbar desert.
You make some good points. I guess I can take comfort in knowing that the return of ISIS fighters and / or their families will help to wake the Europeans from their current slumber.
Nice. I like it when ISIS fights to the death.
It seems so, but mount Sinjar and the mountains up north are also present near the Iraq / Syria border. Perhaps it could be there? I mean, there are not too many mountains in DeZ or Anbar, right?
(I'm aware that you know way more than me on this, so I'm currently 2nd guessing myself)
>>205794>mount Sinjar and the mountains up north are also present near the Iraq / Syria border. Perhaps it could be there?
You're right, but i don't think mount Sinjar is the destination (considering the huge fuzz when ISIS approached it a couple of years ago).
I'm not really sure, but i think it's mistranslated and actually means the mountainous areas of the border deserts or something like that.>I mean, there are not too many mountains in DeZ or Anbar, right?
Not directly on the border no, there are hills, it's rough and has a ton of valleys though. Perfect hiding place.
The desert north of the Euphrates is quite mountainous (iirc still considered as part of the Anbar desert), has ISIS activity, loyal villagers etc and some fuckers could've sneaked through the Iraqi border to reach it. I dunno.
But other than that Homs, Anbar and Hasakah are my best bets.
>inb4 "but there are SAA/SDF/Iraqi forces surrounding them"
Reminder that the middle-east is incredibly corrupt, bribery is extremely usual (wanna guess how most of the previously ISIS loyalist tribes, known for being Saddamists, suddenly switched side to the k*rds and the (((international coalition)))?).
Just a week or so ago the Shuaitat tribe caught some terrorists and their families in one of the towns in their tribal area who "managed to escape" from the pocket.
If the Shuaitat tribals didn't have a vendetta against ISIS they would've probably went through unharmed.
Another fun anecdote, it has been reported many times that ISIS wants to go to Idlib, i read some twitter comments on such claims of people almost laughingly asking if HTS would be okay with that (because lol ISIS and HTS are enemies lol).
Just remember how HTS/FSA opened a corridor over the Salamiyah-Itriyah road when the Uqayribat pocket was almost finished and they claimed it was to "save the besieged muslim women and children from ASSad deathsquads".
Granted, it bit them in the ass, but it's not like they were friends before they got backstabbed by ISIS after the breakout.
Now imagine how many ex-ISIS grunts are now in SDF, with similar "muh ummah" ideologies, I'm sure there are tons of them who wouldn't mind helping smuggle ISIS out of the pocket.
Hell, remember when some "former" salafi FSA militia joined the battle after Hajin was captured and announced that they took the Abu Hassan village at record pace, in similar fashion to how that ex-ISIS Abu Khawra that leads the DeZ military council would tweet that they captured tens of villages per day when SAA broke the DeZ siege.
>Today I was able to photograph (film) ISIS elements, #SDF , my report on k24https://twitter.com/akramsalih7/status/1097907472378052608
I might be entirely wrong but the filming seems to imply ISIS still holds the easternmost part of Shaykh Hamad (at the base of the Baghuz cliffs)…
Haven't seen any footage from the supposedly captured Baghuz Tahtani either so uhhh, who knows.

SAA went 99/99 in the soviet artillery tech tree and it's really starting to show now that there's no other pockets left to bombard and the blyatskis are around.

Rumors that Turkey, Russia and Iran agreed to launch a joint military operation against HTS in Idlib. https://twitter.com/Ozkok_/status/1097969477248053248
Basically, T*rkey wants to launch a mock offensive with TFSA against HTS.
Man, that's so blurry how can they make out that it's an S-300?
wtf I love Syria now
RIA confirmed that Joulani was wounded (they say heavy wound) and is being treated in a Turkish hospitalhttps://ria.ru/20190219/1551094668.html
Last two are al-Tanf/Rukban humanitarian "corridor" right?
Looks like they're inside the 55km zone.>>205874
Sounds like bs to me since there are hospitals in Idlib but if it is bs why would Russian media "slander" T*rkey this way? 🤔
>>205875>Last two are al-Tanf/Rukban humanitarian "corridor" right?
Yup> if it is bs why would Russian media "slander" T*rkey this way?
Wondering the same thing, RIA is usually pretty reliable.
Corridor doesn't look too busy, has there been any numbers report yet?
They've said 222 383 people came back on 18/2
But it's silent about the corridors other than they've been opened, here http://syria.mil.ru/news/more.htm?id=12218127@egNews
As far as I know there's ~50 000 people in Rukban camp
>>205892>silent about the corridors other than they've been opened
If it was just set up then it's understandable.>As far as I know there's ~50 000 people in Rukban camp
Yeah it's freaking massive, more people than Mayadin and Bukamal…
