and how insufferable will 4/sg/ be afterwards?
Wouldn’t it be epic if SAA just blitzed straight to the Kafr Lusin crossing and shut it for good to use as a bargaining chip against the roaches?>>259120
Sure, but it wouldn't be a good idea to poke the roach that hard since Russia wouldn't support it.
It's weird, i figured TF would be the ones clearing northwards from their recently captured Kafr Halab but instead it's the SAA/LDF/Republican Guard/4th div. that is clearing the outskirts of Aleppo from within.
Maybe TF will move north in a day or two but for now their cutting off the M60 "highway" at Kafr Halab and threatening posture towards Atarib might have scared the factions holding the Aleppo outskirts into retreating before they get trapped.
Afterall, capturing Rashidin 4 and Khan al-Asal in a single day is no small feat.

Situation escalated, then ended
>A Syrian was killed and another was wounded in a rare clash Wednesday between American troops and a group of government supporters who tried to block a U.S. convoy driving through a village in northeastern Syria, state media and activists reported.
>The state-run media said the killed man was a civilian. He was among residents of a village east of the town of Qamishli who had gathered at an army checkpoint, pelting the U.S. convoy with stones and taking down a U.S. flag from one of the vehicles. At that point, U.S. troops fired with live ammunition and smoke bombs at the residents, the reports said.
>A U.S. military spokesman said coalition forces conducting a patrol near Qamishli encountered a checkpoint occupied by pro-Syrian government forces. After coalition troops issued a series of warnings in an attempt to de-escalate the situation, the patrol came under small-arms fire from unknown individuals, coalition spokesman Myles Caggins said.
>“In self-defense, coalition troops returned fire. The situation was de-escalated and is under investigation,” he added in a statement, which did not refer to any deaths.https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2020-02-12/syria-us-troops-open-fire-on-locals-in-northeast-killing-1

I’m pressing (X) on the Kafr Naha claims. Tomorrow? Maybe.>>259215
I think they control parts or even the majority of it based on the photo uploaded but not the entirety, so yeah let's wait.
If they can grab the Regiment 46 base tomorrow the rest of the area between Kafr Halab and Aleppo on the M60 road will fall automatically.
Will be interesting to see where they go next, north from Kafr Naha and blocking Highway 62 (Afrin road) around Hawar/Anjarah or doing some absolute madlad shit like taking Atarib and going to Darat Izza/Regiment 111 (contrary to the topo map there are roads leading there without going into the Dana Valley).
I suspect SAA controlling Sheikh Barakat mountain would be too big of a deal for the roaches to accept though. Too strong of a position towards the border crossings.
I think they’ll go Reg 46, then threaten (not capture, threaten) Tuqad/Anjarah, then make their move on the Anadan plains from all directions (especially from the west) as the Jihadists flee when they see the SAA are about to encircle them and there’s still a road open for them to flee.
Though them making absolutely no attempt to clear out the Anadan Plains has me a bit worried that the SAA will stop after establishing a small buffer zone around the M5.
A frontline based on the M5 is eons more secure than what was there previously. It will be spring soon, so good defensive structures are necessary
Deal in works:https://twitter.com/Mzahem_Alsaloum/status/1227933732952256513
Syrian controlled turkey when?
New confirmed gains in Aleppo:
Cordoba Hills, Al-Rahal Association, Kafr Jum Sharqiyah, Monte Carlo farms, Electricity Association Suburb, Sheikh Rahilah, Khan Thouman silos, Police station (Ahmed Al-Fej police school), Al-Mughayer and Lawyers Association.https://twitter.com/Bosni_94/status/1228066437786415105
Only thing i can't find is the Lawyers Association and Zuhrat Mada'in is unknown, probably a wrong name.
To summarise: SF says rebels, Livemaps says ongoing fighting but they've coloured it for the rebels for he time being. Ebin's map and most anons on the various /sg/s says SAA.
It's not held by SAA now at least.
Rebel supporters are saying that the SAA/HRE build-up south of Nubl and Zahraa is intended to cut off Afrin from Idlib (specifically mentions capturing Dayr Simeon and Atmeh) but that sounds way too enthusiastic and sensationalist.
Capturing Shaykh Aqil mountain and Qabtian al-Jabal before meeting SAA advancing from the south on the Afrin-Aleppo M62 road and turn their attention eastwards seem more realistic.
SAA Tank Crewman says Regiment 46 and Um al-Sughra is capturedhttps://twitter.com/Bosni_94/status/1228147753127047168
This war has been a great lesson on potential boogaloo tactics and equipment.
Wait, is that the base that they finished building a few days ago?
Did the SAA turn it into a cuck shed after only a few days!?!?
So Turks are jsut gonna continue shooting down SAA helicopters?
Jap. Turks get heavily involved all the sudden rusty SAA birds start falling form the skies. I thought when tursk said they'd this time truly deal with terrorists in Idlib they meant HTS TIP and frens not SAA.
>Pro-govt source claims helicopter shootdown was from the Turks in Darrat Izzahttps://twitter.com/NotWoofers/status/1228296632674004993
Yep, they'll make sure SAA doesn't advance further west.
3-4 t*rk supplied ACVs have been BTFO on Kafr Halab front, here is one:https://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1228324359464460288
I'm guessing they'll be pushing to the Anadan plain whilst SAA/HRE tries to cut the M62 Aleppo-Afrin highway.
Then again, all i've seen so far is an SAA/HRE ATGM position in Bashemra getting ATGM'd and artillery/airstrikes hitting Qabtian al-Jabal so this whole cooperation might just end up being a big 'ol nothingburger.
By the way, the helicopter was downed at Salloum, possibly bombarding positions intended to be captured by this HRE/SAA force.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.237437&lon=36.943116&z=16&m=bs&show=/30776929/al-Salloum
May I ask how genuine the Idlib white vs green markings are?
As far as administration goes, HTS controls all of Idlibstan. However this does not translate into actual ground control as evidenced by the SNA still being present in central Idlibstan marked by green.
All in all, it’s complicated.
To see the difference, compare Ebin and my maps. He colours anyone not HTS in green, even if they are HTS allies. I colour HTS and their allies in white. There are very few rebels who are not allies (willing or otherwise) of HTS.
I read the t*rks left Atarib btw, interesting.
Big gainz being reported
Maraat al Nassan, Kafr Naha, Scientific Research Center (west of Zahraa district).
SAA/HRE making some gains up north would be the icing on the cake.
Boy am I glad I am here and Bashar is in Damascus cuddling with Asma.
Burned some sunni children dressed as Cupids in Sednaya.
Rumours that the roaches advised the factions to evacuate the western Aleppo salient.

Yep, total collapse due to the jihadists surrendering and there's even civilians staying behind here and in Urm al-Kubra.
Expecting several towns and villages to be announced today.
SVBIED followed by a raid in Miznaz, SAA still hasn't regained all lost positions.

Weirdly, they claimed to be raiding Miznaz and Jazraya but didn't mention Ma'arat al-Na'asan that was claimed to be SAA captured yesterday.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.064364&lon=36.849174&z=13&m=bs&gz=0;368212795;360286247;540733;91620;272941;401106;0;0;563049;68022
According to VivaRevolt 4hrs ago, Bashqantin, Al-Houtah Al-Jawaniyah and Al-Houtah Al-Barraniyah captured and SAA are attacking Anjarah.
Personally i just think his sources are damage controlling the retreat of the jihadists ahead of time as i haven't seen any pro-SAA source claim this yet.https://twitter.com/AbdoZehn/status/1228977879213539328http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.209239&lon=36.981354&z=13&m=bs&gz=0;369450473;361911612;180244;13853;612831;83119;499534;185621;0;265950;168228;0

Neato, hawtah = this: >>259598
Since this offensive i can only recall one or two SVBIEDs going off at Zahra/Mahna Housing, surely the jihadists must have had more in storage on that front?!?!
Imo what Syria needs the most for the coming post war period is good urban architects and musicians with a greater appreciation for music.
>>259616>musicians with a greater appreciation for music
To be fair, that's a hezbollah nasheed and a pretty bad one at that.
SAA has some pretty catchy tunes, speaking of which:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znIip3A_DiQ

At least they have a "style" which is unique.
how much further before they face turkish (passive aggressive) resistance on this norhtern part of the front?
I'm thinking the t*rks aren't too hyped about their post on Sheikh Aqil mountain getting surrounded but for sure either Darat Izza/Sheikh Barakat mountain or Regiment 111 will be the limit imo.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.270850&lon=36.955261&z=12&m=bs&gz=0;368194770;362776314;0;0;350189;41514;1469421;60887
Eh, I'd rather see the M-4 getting sweeped.
Sure, a Daraa-Jordan border holobunga redux on the T*rkish border (when rebel supporters cried genocide on twitter because Jordan closed the border when Daraa was reconciled) would be lovely but as long as Erdomeme remains king roach Russia sees no particular benefit in starting a war over some terrorists in a cuckshed that can't reach their airbase on the coast.
I'm kind of doubting the offensive will continue right now since it has been going on for weeks but the attempts to advance yesterday and earlier today in southern Idlib (Shaykh Damis and Rakaya around Kfar Sejena) tells me otherwise.
What better time than now when the jihadists are crushed and demoralized to cut off the T*rkish supply route to Jabal Zawiya?
I'm thinking a pincer move on Ariha from Saraqib capturing parts of Jabal Arabeen that overlooks the city and cutting the highway to Idlib to the north.
Something like pic related.
The road between Qmenas and Mastoumah would be rough so advancing from Qmenas to Musaybin before would be smarter but you get the gist.
>Several people now saying that TFSA groups are withdrawing into Efrin, away from contact with the SAA. No confirmation from that side yet.https://twitter.com/NotWoofers/status/1229140053424852997
Mercenaries gonna mercenary, suckling on Erdomemes money bags and harassing the locals is more tempting than getting a GRAD rocket on your head i guess.
>ISIS have attacked two 5th Corps checkpoints east of al-Sukhnah. No casualties reportedhttps://twitter.com/ProNDF/status/1229146120338669568
After seeing the aftermath of the latest attack on a checkpoint outside T3 i highly doubt there was no casualties this time.
All the pics of Russian SOF and mercenaries in the Homs desert it's hard to comprehend just how ISIS can still operate there… Unless the Russians are just glorified road patrolmen like the rest of the SAA in the area…

After reviewing videos of todays heavily armoured attack on Jazraya and Miznaz I can say with absolute certainty that SAA does not control Ma'arat al-Na'asan.
Another detail is that HTS are operating the captured T90 on this front.
The jihadists will run out of steam on this front eventually, but the town will continue to be a threat to Kafr Halab because of it's close proximity and favorable topography.
