  • ℹ️ Description

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) claim to have repelled a militant counterattack in the southern countryside of Idlib on Tuesday.

Tanks, artillery and trucks with mounted machine guns were all used in the defence.

A number of captured weapons and destroyed vehicles were also shown to the camera.

In an interview, one SAA soldier described the situation as "good".

"After the victories the army achieved in Khan Sheikhoun and the southern area of Hama countryside and Idlib, [terrorists] attacked us en masse," he explained.

"The position was defended and we lost nothing."

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), an al-Qaeda linked militant group present in the area, were reportedly behind the counterattack.

Fools its a NATO and Turkish battle strategy, Turkey will push forward while destroying men equipment and armour then withdraw when Assad forces counter attack in order to bring those forces in range of there advancing leapfrogging forces on the ground again, as the SAA forces move forward Regime forces have to navigate between there destroyed equipment ultimately leaving behind more destroyed equipment and armour when Turkish forces repeat there blitzkrieg advance again. Each repeated Turkish action becomes hugely more stronger and accurate as Turkey leaves behind well concealed targeting spotters to pass data onto artillery and air forces ready to engage.
