There's supposedly action on the Kabani axis.
Just some fire exchange using technicals.
Hahahhahaha majoosi magnet crude oil tanker magic
Don’t worry Snus, it’ll happen… one day…
Large battle of Hamamiyat barely ended with 200+ killed and dozens of armour destroyed.
End of E. Daraa OP, where the projected September Idlib offensive was possibly scheculed early to August because Daraa already ended in July.
1 (One) Year starting with the 31st of July, when Daraa ended.
One year in 11 days. xDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Get a life losers lmao ;'D hanging around in this cold stale war lmfao like what are oyu stillw asting time here lol pathetic>inb4 N.hama offensive counts
>>231890>mythical big offensive to finally retake idlib
Consensus among most pro-SAA reports on the topic is that all of Idlib won't be taken in just one massive continuous offensive, rather it will be smaller offensives with breathers in between.
The best reasons i can imagine is the fact that Idlib is the last stand with no green bus alternatives, the Russian air fleet being too small and T*rkey not cooperating.
It's simply better to let the RuAF take them out instead of fighting them on equal terms and not overstretching the units with offensive capabilities.
This implies Idlib being finite in resources and an isolated phaenomenon.
Seems more like the typical Russian incapable of ending something and remianing with one foot in and one foot out, viz. Georgia, Ukraine, Japan :), now Syria
that it is a siege type event; if Rebells keep getting new ATGM tubes, new recruits domestic but possibly foreign and the continued survival of Idlib won't jsut be a honeypot but a platform for export of ideology and terrorism.
If we were talking Ghouta I might agree with this possibility, even with SAA corrpution and usurpers, but Idlib scenario seems self-perpetuating if approached as specified by (you)>maybe i just dont have enough faith in the Russkie AF achieving such great impact through bombings>>231899
they abused faggot Africa for centuries, needed their men to stop invasion of the homeland and now continue to extract Africa's resources; not that nigs deserve it, but french get no sympathie points for their subhumans unlike other innocent european nations.
This country is as doomed as an ass of a nigerian prostitute in Lagos offshore bussiness area
The SAA with support of Russia and Iran will continue to take bites of Idlib until all of it is consumed.
Maybe you missed it but they took Kafr Nabudah, Qalaat al-Mudiq and tens of villages last bite - now the RuAF fleet is expanded, the SAA has beefed up (Iranian forces aren't even involved yet AFAIK) and the jihadists has lost a bunch of tanks/morale/experienced manpower.
Of course, the t*rks haven't surrendered yet so i'm cautiously positive about all of this.
Nothing to add here. Avoid ATGMs, build defences in every captur- liberated village, provoke jihadis to do everything to get them in open RuAF targeting.
Other than that diplomatical actions against Turkey and safe balance of use and containing the IRGC, dependable on many factors, including current situation in Lebanon, Jordan and Israeli actions.
>>231895>taking small chunks at a speed inferior to the replacement rate of the enemy
yep, idlib wont be over before i retire
is that iranian they are speaking (singing) or are they jsut labeling hezbollah as iranian because muh iran?
I’m more inclined to the former given the events of the past 365 days.
Any words on the majoosi pirates?

yeah it was a massive fuckup all around
why not solely targeting UK ships is making me ask questions
Dunno mate. Perhaps they are really trying to drive the point home that the strait of Hormuz is their turf and the international shipping is at their complete mercy. Also this was reported yesterday:
>Some Persian sources are mentioning that #Iran plans to start checking oil tankers for "environmental regulations" daily from now on in their waters, all ships will be boarded during this process.https://twitter.com/AuroraIntel/status/1152323145262669825
>>232047>#Iran plans to start checking oil tankers for "environmental regulations" daily from now on
their only strength was the surprise effect, if they make it last longer they're basically giving US MoD a justification to increase permanent presence and patrols in the region because it's not a one time event anymore
this will cost them a lot in the long term since they can't win a face to face confrontation on the long run with US
Also just saw this>London Saturday advised British ships to avoid the Strait of Hormuz for “an interim period” following Iran’s seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker.http://www.arabnews.com/node/1528276/middle-east
Doesnt mean that these ship will disappear immediately from the gulf but does point to a situation where exclusively targeting UK ships will no longer be an option anymore. Unless the Iranians want to target UK naval ships.
Agreed, especially since US/UK has been incrementally increasing their presence in the Strait of Hormuz.
However I don’t really see that they had a choice, considering their threat of messing up transit if they couldn’t export oil and then UK seized one of their oil tankers.
More bargaining chips before the meeting eh?
>The 11th Division is ready for an offensive
>>232051>I don’t really see that they had a choice
intimidation when you have no ace up your sleeve is the dumb choice
if they want to gamble on fear they shouldn't present it in a "friendly" way with "ecological inspections" aka boarding ships but with a more hit and run way that can't be easily countered: basically shooting torpedoes from small boats or sending scuba divers with explosive charges
basically trying to board another ship by boat or helicopter will only get them shot while using US navy's weakness, ie slow, small numbers and reliance on screen ships for cover against small fast movers to their advantage by spamming the shit out of high mobility small task forces anywhere at anytime to overwhelm US poor coverage of the region
ultimately resulting in a sea reproducing ISIS' tactics of highly mobile, hit and run toyota task groups which worked very well for them (up until they got countered)
they're basically shooting themselves in the foot with what they've done, either you escalate or you appease, but you can't have it both ways
just my perspective on it

Obvious propaganda bs about civilians since these (alawite) villages are right on the frontline, however, this might be an indicator that there's big troop movement happening in this area.
Seems like Iceland became cucked in the 90's. It would be interesting to see what particular trends caused a change of sentiment away from ethnocentrism. A Charles Murray-level of statistician is needed to go around Europe and determine what cucks white countries (and it's not just Jews; there are 250 Jews in all of Iceland, the country expelled the Jews in the 1930's, and circumcision is banned).
Personally, I would blame a mixture of influences. One is integration with the European Economic Area. Another is a decline in religion and the cucking of the Church of Iceland (their bishop is a woman). Fertility rate is under replacement at 1.7. But most of all, a fifth of the land area (over 20,000 square km) is publicly owned. Large amounts of public space erases, ironically, the conception that "this land belongs to my people" in favor of "this land belongs to anyone the government allows." A private law society cannot come soon enough.

Come to think of it, if the goal is killing as many jihadis as possible, what's the point of launching ground offensives when the jihadis keep exposing themselves moving troops and launching joke offensives?
I suspect there won't be an SAA offensive until the jihadis stop making themselves easy pray to airstrikes.

>South Korea fires hundreds of warning shots at Russian military plane
South Korean warplanes fired hundreds of warning shots at a Russian military aircraft that entered South Korean airspace on Tuesday, defense officials said, while Russia denied violating any airspace and accused South Korean pilots of being reckless.
It was the first time a Russian military aircraft had violated South Korean airspace, an official at the South Korean Ministry of National Defence said in Seoul.
Two Russian bombers and two Chinese bombers entered the Korea Air Defence Identification Zone (KADIZ) together early on Tuesday, the defense ministry said.
A separate Russian early warning and control aircraft later twice violated South Korean airspace over Dokdo - an island that is occupied by South Korea and also claimed by Japan, which calls it Takeshima - just after 9 a.m. (midnight GMT Monday), according to the South Korean military.
Russia’s defense ministry denied that its strategic bombers had violated South Korean airspace, the RIA news agency reported.
South Korean military planes crossed the path of Russian bombers and did not communicate with them, Russia’s defense ministry said, according to RIA.
This was not the first time that South Korean pilots had interfered with a Russian military flight over neutral waters, the ministry said.
China’s foreign ministry said South Korea’s Air Defence Identification Zone was not territorial airspace and all countries enjoyed freedom of movement in it.
South Korea’s top security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, lodged a strong objection with Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the Security Council of Russia, asking the council to assess the incident and take appropriate action, South Korea’s presidential office said.
“We take a very grave view of this situation and, if it is repeated, we will take even stronger action,” Chung said, according to South Korea’s presidential office.
South Korea’s foreign ministry would summon Russian Deputy Chief of Mission Maxim Volkov and Chinese Ambassador Qiu Guohong on Tuesday to lodge a stern protest and strongly urge them to prevent a recurrence, said ministry spokesman Kim In-chul.
Japan lodged a complaint with both South Korea and Russia over the incident, a government spokesman said.
“We cannot accept these kinds of actions in our territory,” the Kyodo news agency cited government officials as saying.
The Russian aircraft was an A-50 airborne early warning and control aircraft, an official at South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said, and South Korea scrambled F-15 and F-16 fighter jets in response to the intrusions.
The South Korean jets fired about 360 rounds of ammunition during the incident, the JCS official said.
“The South Korean military took tactical action including dropping flares and firing warning shots,” the defense ministry said.
A South Korean defense official told Reuters that the Russian aircraft did not respond in any threatening way.
The Russian aircraft left South Korean airspace but then entered it again about 20 minutes later, prompting the South Koreans to fire more warning shots.
The ministry said South Korean warplanes “conducted a normal response” to the incursion, without giving further details.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-southkorea-russia-aircraft/south-korea-says-it-fired-warning-shot-at-russian-military-aircraft-that-violated-airspace-idUSKCN1UI072?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews

>Russian, Syrian air forces let loose big attack along Idlib-Hama axis
BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:25 A.M.) – The Russian and Syrian air forces have unleashed a massive assault along the Hama-Idlib axis this evening, targeting many areas under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Izza.
According to a source in northern Hama, the Syrian and Russian air force targeted the region of the Hama-Idlib axis between the towns of Khan Sheikhoun (Idlib) and the large hilltop of Tal Al Malah (northwestern Hama).
The source added tonight’s attack were some of the heaviest strikes launched by the Syrian and Russian air forces this month.
On Thursday, the Russian Air Force had heavily targeted the jihadist stronghold of Khan Sheikhoun, hitting several sites belonging to both Jaysh Al-Izza and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
At the same time as the Russian strikes on Khan Sheikhoun, the Syrian Air Force reportedly struck the Turkestan Islamic Party’s (TIP) positions in the Al-Ghaab Plain region of the Idlib Governorate.
Both the Russian and Syrian air forces have recently stepped up their strikes in response to the jihadist offensive at Al-Qasabiyah.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-russian-syrian-air-forces-let-loose-big-attack-along-idlib-hama-axis/

Maybe the view is deceiving and could be an explanation to all the failures of the SAA in the Ghab valley (big think)…
High ground is still high ground, and the Ghab plains are flat as fuck.
That's what i am saying.
In comparison to the heights of Latakia, that shit looks tiny and has probably lead to SAA generals underestimating it.
That’s what they get for not going down to Ghab to get a more realistic look to see what their troops will see when going on the attack.

>>A Navy SEAL Platoon Is Pulled From Iraq Over Misconduct Reports
An entire platoon of Navy SEAL commandos was abruptly removed from Iraq this week after commanders heard reports of serious misconduct and a breakdown of discipline in the elite unit.
Officials did not release any details. But a senior Navy official with knowledge of the matter said the Navy is investigating reports that the unit, Foxtrot Platoon of SEAL Team 7, held a Fourth of July party where some members consumed alcohol against regulations, and that a senior enlisted member of the platoon had raped a female service member attached to the platoon.
The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about a continuing investigation.
Jeremiah Sullivan, a civilian attorney representing one of the SEALs in the platoon, confirmed that there was an investigation into reports of sexual assault and unauthorized drinking.
When commanders began investigating the allegations, the entire platoon invoked their right to remain silent, according to a United States official briefed on the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity. At that point, the official said, commanders decided to send the whole platoon home, including the lieutenant in command.
The commander of American special operations troops in Iraq, Maj. Gen. Eric Hill of the Air Force, ordered the extremely rare removal of the platoon — the only group of SEALs in Iraq — “due to a perceived deterioration of good order and discipline within the team during nonoperational periods,” according to a statement from Special Operations Command.
“There were allegations of wrongdoing, and the commander initiated an investigation, which is still ongoing,” said Ken McGraw, a spokesman for Special Operations Command. “After the investigation began, the commander lost confidence in the platoon’s ability to accomplish the mission and ordered the platoon’s redeployment.”
The Navy ordered the SEALs to take drug tests, according to a Navy SEAL officer who has been briefed on the matter. The results of those tests are not yet known, the officer said.
Foxtrot Platoon — including 19 SEALs and four support troops — was in Kuwait on Thursday, en route to Seal Team 7’s base at Naval Base Coronado near San Diego. The unit was not immediately replaced in Iraq, increasing the burdens on other American troops there, but the Navy said in a statement that “the loss of confidence in this case outweighed potential operational risk” from their absence.
Enlisted Navy SEALs at Coronado said that while individuals are occasionally removed from missions for misconduct, they could not recall another instance of an entire SEAL platoon being sent home. Last year, a Green Beret detachment from the Army’s 7th Special Forces Group was withdrawn from Afghanistan after members of the unit were implicated in the abuse of an Afghan prisoner.
The withdrawal of Foxtrot Platoon is the latest in a series of black eyes for the SEAL teams, which have been hit repeatedly over the last year by reports of drug use, misconduct and violence.
Two SEALs and two Marines were charged in the death of a Green Beret who was strangled in 2017 during a hazing incident while the commandos were on a secret deployment in Mali in West Africa. One of the SEALs pleaded guilty and was sentenced in May.
Earlier this week, Navy Times reported that cocaine use was widespread among members of SEAL Team 10, based in Virginia, and that SEALs in the team considered the Navy’s drug testing efforts “a joke.”
Accounts of broad drug use among senior enlisted SEALs emerged in the court-martial of Special Operator First Class Edward Gallagher. He was acquitted earlier this month of charges that he had shot unarmed civilians and stabbed a wounded captive to death while leading a platoon in Iraq in 2017, but he was convicted of posing for photographs with the teenage captive’s corpse.
During the trial, SEALs from his platoon testified that they had constructed a rooftop bar at their safe house in Iraq, and that officers in charge of enforcing regulations drank there with enlisted men, and even took turns acting as disc jockeys.
Bradley Strawser, who teaches ethics in war at the Naval Postgraduate School, said the reports of rogue behavior in the SEALs are partly a product of nearly 20 years of constant special-operations warfare.
“This kind of slide in the ethical culture, standards, ethos and expectations we have been seeing across the service now for several years is yet another cost of this kind of endless war-fighting,” he said. “Our military desperately needs time to circle the wagons, go deep in working out some of the systemic problems, and effectively right the ship. But it’s very hard to do that when we are literally at never-ending war.”
Military regulations forbid the consumption of alcohol in Iraq and Afghanistan, two predominantly Muslim countries. But its presence among American troops serving there is hardly rare, and in many units, including the SEAL teams, leaders sometimes turn a blind eye to moderate use.
But this year, in response to repeated reports of misconduct, the commander of Navy Special Warfare, Rear Adm. Collin Green, took steps to clean up SEAL culture with a focus on accountability, character, and what he called “ethical compliance.”
When Admiral Green heard of the allegations about Foxtrot Platoon, he pushed for the unit to be withdrawn from Iraq, according to two Navy officials with knowledge of the event.
A spokeswoman for the SEALs, Cmdr. Tamara Lawrence, said that in general top commanders are increasingly focused on enforcing discipline.
“Naval Special Warfare insists on a culture where ethical adherence is equally important to tactical proficiency,” she said in a statement. “Good order and discipline is critical to the mission. We’re actively reinforcing, with the entire force, basic leadership, readiness, responsibility and ethical principles that must form the foundation of special operations.”https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/25/us/navy-seal-platoon-withdrawn-iraq.html
>'We can't hide anything' say Cambodians at alleged China base
REAM, Cambodia (Reuters) - Trying to rebut a report of a secret deal to give China access to a naval base, Cambodia’s defense ministry took reporters to see the torpid jetty and outbuildings on Friday.
The United States has also voiced concern that the Ream naval base in southern Cambodia could host forces from China, the closest foreign ally of long-serving authoritarian Prime Minister Hun Sen.
“You journalists. Open your eyes and noses. Today we show you everything,” said defense ministry spokesman Chhum Socheat. “We can’t hide anything … because there are satellites.”
The Wall Street Journal said on Sunday that China had reached a secret deal with Cambodia this year to let it place forces at Ream. The report cited U.S. and allied officials.
Cambodia denied any such agreement and said hosting foreign forces would be against Cambodia’s constitution.
At Ream, a half dozen gray-painted Cambodian navy patrol boats were moored by the jetty. Sailors in military fatigues stood to attention as the press bus passed. Reporters were not allowed to get off.
The defense ministry pointed out that there was no sign of a Chinese presence or of any construction.
Reporters were also taken to a building where a sign proclaimed: “This building was given by the people of the United State of America an expression of friendship and cooperation.” Inside were U.S.-donated speed boats with guns.
The United States expressed concern to Cambodia over plans for Ream after its offer to pay for renovations at the facility was turned down by the Cambodian government in June.
“This causes us to wonder if the Cambodian leadership’s plans for Ream Naval Base include the possible hosting of foreign military assets and personnel,” U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Emily Zeeberg said in a statement.
Chhum Socheat said the building in question would be handed to the Cambodian navy, not to the Chinese.
Giving China access to facilities in Cambodia would boost its ability to assert contested territorial claims in the South China Sea, challenging U.S. allies in Southeast Asia.
The U.S. embassy said it was also monitoring media reports about the potential use of a resort by China.
Some 70 km (40 miles) northwest of Ream, a Chinese company is building a runway at the Dara Sakor resort that is capable of taking some of the world’s biggest planes to serve what for now consists of a rundown casino and a golf course.
China has poured billions of dollars of aid into Cambodia while private Chinese money has gone into real estate developments, factories and casinos.
The town of Sihanoukville, some 10 km (6 miles) from Ream, has been transformed by Chinese investment and the arrival of tens of thousands of Chinese workers and visitors.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-cambodia-idUSKCN1UL0Z1
>Fire and fury: With missile launch, North Korea shows ire at neighbor
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s blistering criticism of South Korea as he oversaw his latest missile launch this week sparked new questions over the South’s role in mediating a nuclear deal between the North and the United States, analysts said.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in has been one of the most vocal proponents of engagement with the North, using last year’s Winter Olympics to host its delegations and then meeting Kim at summits filled with feel-good imagery, smiles, and hand-holding.
But Moon has been unable to convince Washington to ease sanctions and allow economic cooperation between the neighbors, nor has he persuaded Kim to take major steps toward giving up his nuclear weapons.
On Friday, North Korea called the previous day’s missile launches a warning to South Korean “warmongers” to stop importing weapons and holding joint military drills, with Kim explicitly urging Moon not to ignore them.
Kim may be impatient with what he sees as South Korea overpromising and underdelivering, said Jenny Town, a managing editor at 38 North, a U.S.-based project that studies North Korea.
“The North Koreans have made several statements challenging Moon to move forward, but obviously the situation has left Seoul unable to do so,” she said.
For his part, Moon said there had been “a lot of progress so far in inter-Korean relations and North Korea-U.S. relations, but we still have a long way to go.”
“I think the biggest challenge is national unity,” he added, in comments to a group of Buddhist leaders in Seoul.
North Korea’s growing frustration with its neighbor culminated in the missile tests as a protest against the South’s acquisition of new weapons, such as U.S. F-35 stealth fighters, and its participation in military drills with the United States.
Kim’s comments showed how skeptical North Korea has become regarding the South’s usefulness in talks with the United States, said Shin Beom-chul of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul.
“To them, the South Korean government is only a nuisance,” he said. “So the message is either ‘Persuade the United States,’ or ‘Stay out of it.’”
Overseeing Thursday’s launches, Kim Jong Un said the new missiles had to be developed to neutralize the weapons being acquired by South Korea and turn them into “scrap iron”.
South Korea’s acquisition of American F-35 stealth fighter jets, the first of which arrived in March, would force its neighbor to develop and test “special armaments” to destroy the aircraft, the North had warned in mid-July.
While Moon has faced some domestic concern that national security could be affected by his North Korean pacts, from a no-fly zone to fewer guard posts and landmines along the heavily fortified border, he has also pushed ahead with plans to modernize and invest in the South’s already large military.
In January the defense ministry unveiled a plan to boost military spending for the next five years by an additional 270.7 trillion won ($228 billion).
Still, some observers believe Kim Jong Un is leaving space for engagement by focusing on South Korea’s military.
“The state media report shows the North was still willing to maintain inter-Korean ties, as they mostly targeted the military forces, not the whole government,” said Kim Dong-yup, a professor at Kyungnam University’s Far East Institute in Seoul.
An official at Moon’s office said it would not comment on the state media report but the government remained committed to working to revive momentum for nuclear talks.
Poor relations have also prompted a show of reluctance by Pyongyang in accepting 50,000 tons of rice South Korea offered as food aid to its impoverished neighbor.
A South Korean official said the government discussed the plan with the World Food Programme, but Pyongyang had recently showed a “negative” attitude, citing the joint military drills.
Attempts to discuss two South Korean sailors detained by the North have also gone unanswered, the official added.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-missiles-southkorea-analys-idUSKCN1UL0ZL

For now, besides the weird report of supply line between Lataminah and Zakah being cut (could be an awkward way of saying that the air forces are working extensively to bomb anything moving on the road tbh) there aren't any indications of SAA moving towards Lataminah from the direction of the current hot zone yet.
These seem pretty obvious as next targets. Maybe tonight? SAA(&friends) have thermal/night capabilities.>>233022
I wish we could see pics of Hezzies who took part in the operation. No way we will tho.
Lataminah is dangerous, it's surrounded by the Empty Flat Agricultural Hellfields of Immidiate Doom. Small villages first - than air and artillery work, than air work on convoys/reinforcements & finally assault on Lataminah.
I think the offensive will stop for the night now that Malah and Jubbayn have been captured.
Judging from bombing reports I think next targets are the Zakah, Arbain and Raidi before Lataminah/Kafr Zita but it's too early to tell if they'll keep going here or focus their attention somewhere else (like the Habit axis) imo.>>233028>Small villages first - than air and artillery work, than air work on convoys/reinforcements & finally assault on Lataminah
Agreed, but i still think that Habit-Sheikhoun road is a better angle of attack.

Probably, but if there's Tigers, Hezbollah and Liwa al-Quds involved they do have enough force to push forward some more. You're probably right and they won't though, pushing through minefields into enemy territory at night isn't the best idea.>Habit-Sheikhoun road is a better angle of attack
100% agreed, it creates The Great Kotel of Northern Hama 2019 Edition. Jihadis would be forced to fight to death surrounded from 3 sides or surrender.
I'm sure this is an auto-translation of Lataminah but if it is Tamanah it could be a yuge dev:http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.455392&lon=36.750340&z=15&m=bs&show=/15879509/Al-Tamanah

It's a pro-militant outlet so it just seems like a late admission.
I never saw this place claimed as captured by pro-SAA sources and so i assume it isn't it's real name or it's actually just a part of Jubbayn or Tel Malah (I mean, if the SAA captured both Jubbayn and Malah last night, why wouldn't they also capture this due to it's close proximity??).

>artillery targets militant sites at Zakat/Zakah
If they do advance tonight, it would seem the battle doctrine has changed, presumably because of superior thermal/NV-capabilities.
AFAIK the kornets and TOW launchers have sights that can operate during the night so i assume it's mostly to hide from MG's and small arms fire.
Anyways, did russkie drones always have thermal vision?

Speaking to Al-Masdar from the Hama Governorate, an source from the Syrian Republican Guard said the military is preparing to launch more offensives inside northwestern Syria in the near future.
In particular, the source said the Syrian Army is looking to open up new fronts in the Hama and Aleppo governorates, while also concentrating on previous battles that were put on hold due to the militant capture of Tal Malah and Jibeen.
The source would add that the Syrian Arab Army is sending more reinforcements to the Hama, Latakia, Aleppo, and Idlib governorates in the coming days.

Eh you know how it works with Arabs. If gov officials won't respect the will of popular committees there will be no suprise if Nusra grows 200 in numbers in one night and loyalists are well aware of that. Many people in Halab are ex-moderates and so on. If they won't feel safe under Assad - they can as well join the jihadis. Dara'a was a fine example of this.
I wouldn't underestimate Arab stupidity in this case.
Tomorrow the Turkish national council will be held to discuss Eastren furat and after it a meeting for the supreme military council.
And with readiness in Pro-turkey militants, we will see an operation in the next two weeks or so, with or without US approval.
Best solution for all this crisis is that SDF give back the territories they occupy to syrian gov.
Which will never happen, so brace yourself for some saddam style videos soon in Eastern furat
I've seen so much fucked up shit I wouldn't expect no matter what, that now I take literally every possibility into account. Even loyalists calculating military steps according to the dangers associated with popular committies.
Mentioned Dara'a sleeper cells, Yarmouk Basin protesters->opposition->jihad, peaceful headchoppers of 2013 in Euphrates Valley, Manbij Military Council out of nowhere, Kirkuk in Iraq suddenly landing in the hands of anarchists, al-Tanf being loyalists-turned-US cocksuckers et cetera>That's a good slogan to give the kurdos a brain exercise, "Saddam or Assad?". Maybe a meme with Saddam being represented by an image of the "moderate" TFSA headchoppers having fun in Afrin and Assad being represented by a hookah cafe or some pre-war leisure shit.

Don't get me wrong, I understand that as well as you do, but Arabs man, they're fucking weird people. Of course it makes no sense to join the Nusrats now, or to hide with them and run away from the loyalitsts, but seriously, who knows? They're dumb fucks.

There are other ways to get a government’s attention than joining the enemy. Joining the jihadis would just create more cannon fodder.
A nice riot within the city however, especially if govt buildings are stormed Hong Kong-style…
The jihadis definitely knew something was up tough and capturing Tel Malah made sense to them for a reason.
Masdar spoke wrote this "concentrating on previous battles that were put on hold due to the militant capture of Tal Malah and Jibeen".
Was it simply to disrupt the supply line (aiming for Kernaz and Kafr Nabudah) or had they gotten their hands on some secret battle plans saying the SAA would be using this axis to attack Lataminah/Kafr Zita from the west?
Maybe the Tiger Forces/fanboys hyping Lataminah/Kafr Zita lends credence to this theory.
Either way, gib gains already.

Monsieur, some personal insight is requested: I have seen people say that these recent N.Hama SAA gains of Tel Malah especially are essential for the further advance and now after, the other villages ought to be easier (terrain or what idk).
Is this SAA twitter bullshit again and we are jsut gonna get this slow ww1 LARP on SCW scale continued or is what they are saying leggit?
With love and squalor,
In my opinion on this front, the problem is SAA's unwillingness to risk their manpower.
Paratroopers being dropped on such an active front is risky as well.
The reason why they're so stubborn to attack at the same place is because the height would grant supervision of everything north of it.
>>233371>I have seen people say that these recent N.Hama SAA gains of Tel Malah especially are essential for the further advance and now after, the other villages ought to be easier (terrain or what idk).
Tel Malah is definitely essential to advance further on this axis but the other villages won't be easier to capture if you ask me.
As you can see here: >>233361

In exchange for what though? Russian agreeing to not oppose Turkish operations against the kurds?
Probably agricultural lands south of Zakat. Now artillery aviation work on the city. Later infantry advance, hope they don't fall in a trap somewhere in Zakat, it's not a tiny village.
>>233394>Russian agreeing to not oppose Turkish operations against the kurds?
Or maybe some trade thing? Russians lifted plenty of gas/oil barriers with the Turks lately. Could be aviation too (Turks said they will stop dealing with Boeing if US keeps the sanctions). It's kinda wider image than just Syria, altough you may be right as well with the PeKeKe thingy.
A promise to not advance further northwards beyond the Hama salient maybe?
A reward for the S-400 delivery…?
I don't know man…
Remember months before the offensive when Russia moaned about t*rkey letting jihadis in the Hama salient (so called military deescalation zone) shell loyalist towns?

Turkey should've known it'll be excluded from the F35 programme when buying S400. Should've been obvious to them. Maybe was? We don't know.
The fighters themselves aren't that much of a problem, Ruskies could propose them Su57 instead. Problem is Turkey had invested millions of $$ to take part in the offset production for F35 and they'll take probably billions worth of parts hit.
Already there's some reports Erdo will take part in offset S400 production, to help the economy afater USofA embargo hit them.
Basically NATO now has a Trojan Horse inside, how it's mentioned in the article. Anyway fuck T*rkey, fuck USofA and fuck white people.
So uhh, did the operation fail or was the objective to establish positions on the high grounds?
Very odd move.
Hmm maybe just taking the high ground for artillery spotters? Kinda silly not to rush Zakat in this case, but as I've mentioned earlier - ambushes and minefields are a killer during night ops, even with NV.
>>233407>taking the high ground for artillery spotters
Tanks, ATGMs, HMGs etc.
No recorded rebel ATGM strikes since the 27th.

i'm quitting the nicotine jew
it's far more easier than you think with substitute
haven't redone snus ever since i started quitting
Well to be honest I have following your advice you gave me some time ago. I have been able bring it down to 2 smokes per day. One after breakfast and one after dinner.
the greatest enemy to the arab is the arab himself
try nicotine patch if you can get some
it really changes your life
although i must warn you, you'll have to suffer the first 2 weeks but past that point you're in a habit and the cravings for smokes tends to slowly vanish
technically you're supposed to use only one patch (dose depending of how much you usually smoke) per day, but my rule to make it easy is, i can use as much nicotine patches as i want/need per day as long as i don't switch back to tobacco, after a while you tend to go back to one patch a day and from then you start decreasing the dosage of your patch every month or whenever you feel like you can
Well I will try it if they are available. Thanks for the advice mate.
Seems like Tigers are promising "The next days will be great".

Also testing. If successful, well… I still won’t be able to Shitmap until I have a proper computer due to issues of C&P,, but I can at least districtmap now.
Ok it didn’t take me nearly as long to catch up as I thought it would, although there were still huge updates to be done.
I’ll be keeping a daily eye on Afghanistan from now on.
Afghan Shitmupdate - A few Taliban-controller areas became contested, but the govt was the bigger loser as their areas of control shrank quite a bit. Special note in Daykundi, Taliban now contests 3 districts there. And govt control shrank significantly in Badakhshan and a rare Taliban offensive into Panjshir. Paktika and Ghor no longer contains districts 100% under govt control.
Now to see if I can figure out how to shitgif.
why do these rebels waste precious tanks by exposing them to Syrian Russian air forces?

Are they bombing them in 20km "deescalation zone" or further into jihadi territory too?

It looks like they're "cleaning" the ~20km zone. Forcing the jihadis to respect the ceasefire by firepower. Good.
It's funny when you launch a FUCKUGE air operation to enforce a ceasefire.
Yeah, they still in Iranian hotel drinking mate and learning Farsi.
Oh I thought they agreed to it. No I actually had no idea.
>Armed terrorist groups target the city of al-Suqailbiya in Hama countryside with several missiles
Thanks man. SAA land forces better get ready for removing Kafr Zita and Lataminah from jihadi control SOON
Ok I know why VKS attacked with such intensity now:
MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Armed formations have shelled the area of the Hmeymim airbase in the Syrian province of Latakia, where Russian Aerospace Forces are based, the SANA agency informed citing Syrian military sources.
"The terrorists opened fire at 15:30 Moscow time, several munitions exploded in the area of the air base," the message informs. "There are casualties in the wake of the attack, and significant material damage has been caused."
The agency does not provide any additional details regarding the attack.
Terrorist groups targeted on Monday Hmeimim Airbase in Lattakia countryside with rocket shells.
A military source told news that at 3:30 PM, terrorist groups targeted Hmeimim Airbase with a number of rocket shells which fell in its surroundings, causing considerable losses in lives and material damage.
Earlier today, the General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said that terrorist groups supported by Turkey refused to abide by the ceasefire and carried out attacks against civilians, and that the army will resume its operations against those terrorists.

Esper: US intends to prevent Turkey invasion into Syria
TOKYO (AP) — U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Tuesday that the U.S. intends to prevent any unilateral invasion by Turkey into northern Syria, saying any such move by the Turks would be unacceptable.
“What we’re going to do is prevent unilateral incursions that would upset, again, these mutual interests that the United States, Turkey and the SDF share with regard to northern Syria,” Esper told reporters traveling with him to Japan. He said the U.S. is trying to work out an arrangement that addresses Turkey’s concerns, adding, “I’m hopeful we’ll get there.”https://apnews.com/d8444f9764ce4be6bdfa68aa3c9051f7

So I'm guessing the front looks something like this, more info soon.
>>235384>supply line from Kafr Zita to Latamnah has been cutoff
The main direct road between the towns, sure, but there are several paved roads that connects them.
In the al-masdar report it says "According to a military source near the front-lines, Syrian Army artillery crews managed to cutoff the main militant supply line from Kafr Zita to Al-Latamnah after raining shells on the roadway between the two towns."
So there's no reason to believe that SAA has advanced eastwards beyond Zakah yet.

Doubt but ok
NLF reporting they destroyed two SAA vehicles (probably technicals) on Zakah front with ATGMs.
What's interesting to note is the absence of ATGM strikes during the night, probably the main reason why SAA usually start their offensives when it's dark.
Apparently SAA advanced on the Tal-Khatra axis (Abu Duhur) last night and there are still clashes going on.
No details on what was potentially captured, if they will keep advancing or what units are involved.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.749717&lon=36.953459&z=15&m=bs&gz=0;369373869;357409217;363922;36573;0;0;134325;180762;366497;43191

I thought so too… Well, they're not striking at night so something must be wrong.
I've seen a lot of memeboxes on SAA vehicles, might be helping a bit. T72M and T90 both have NV capabilities too, so jihadis are getting pounded and their ATGMs miss the targets. Might be it, but something smelly is going on I suppose.

I don't think Kafr Zita will fall as easily as the other towns, besides being a bigger town than Kafr Nabudah or anything else that has been captured these past months, if it falls to the government Jaysh al-Izza will lose everything in the Hama salient.

>>235625>Kafr Zita first i reckon
For the ultimate Kotel™ experience? It's also more natural approach I guess, but it's notably bigger than Latminah. Time will show.
Also after the counter attacks there probably won't be any advances by SAA, true. Getting sniped/ATGMd/mineflying isn't the best idea when there's Shahadamobile probably waiting to leave Kafr Zita at advancing SAA.
>>235658>For the ultimate Kotel™ experience?
Yep, they're far less likely to remain in Lataminah than Kafr Zita if the roles are switched.>It's also more natural approach I guess
For sure, Lataminah is a mess topographically and i don't think SAA are too keen on defending it from counterattacks.>Also after the counter attacks there probably won't be any advances by SAA, true.

We will see, the night is young and RuAF are still active.
