BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:35 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is within one kilometer of the strategic city of Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib, a military source told Al-Masdar News this evening.

According to the source, the Syrian Arab Army’s advance this evening has put them in position for a potential attack on Khan Sheikhoun.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army was able to capture the Khan Sheikhoun Farms this evening after resuming their offensive in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

At the same time, the Syrian Army has begun storming the nearby town of Rakaya and the hilltop of Tal Nar, which are both located northwest of Khan Sheikhoun.

If the Syrian Army does storm Khan Sheikhoun, it will be from the city’s western axis, as their advance to the eastern flank of the city has currently been forestalled by the jihadist rebels near Sukayk.

The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Rouse the Believers launched a big counter-offensive on Saturday morning to retake Sukayk.

While they were unable to retake Sukayk, they did manage to retake some points north of the town.

Been enjoying watching so many old war videos posted by SYRIATUBE an awesome up loader of war videos taken 5 to 6 years ago where the vidoes are very short & brief clearly showing how the Syrian Arab Army is fighting so many Jihadis Factions of FSA. Miss this SYRIATUBE who just stopped uploading vidoes from 2015 onward probably the YouTube just blocked him as he was more pro government and showed more Jihadis kicking the bucket? In one video he did mention about YouTube blocking hims & started to upload photos & details in Facebook. He always signed off… Read more »

The more they lose the harder it is going to be to Rousing any Believers. Then they can become Rouse the Deceived or RTD for short. RTD is ready to drink alcohol but in this case they can be Ready To Die which fits perfectly.

Some way should be found to lock the Turkish border :
no more supplies and a closed and surrounded kill-zone 🙂

That would be nice but how porous is that border . A land border is hard too control without the manpower to cover it.
