Thousands of Fresh Recruits Joining Army’s Imminent Operation in Idlib

TEHRAN (FNA)- A large number of reinforcements from the provinces of Tartous and Homs have been sent to the Northwestern battlefields of the country to join the Syrian Armed Forces’ large-scale operation in Idlib province, military sources said.

“Several armored vehicles arrived to the Kurds Mountain (Jabal Al-Akrad) last night as part of a new wave of fighters that are set to replace the battle-hardened Desert Hawks (Liwa Suqour Al-Sahra) after they were transferred to the Palmyra (Tadmur) front,” the sources said.

The source added that these legions of reinforcements are from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) and will be tasked with protecting the captured territory while the Syrian Marines, the Special Forces, and the Republican Guard advance East.

In addition to reinforcements from the National Defense Forces, the Syrian Arab Army will also be joined by several military contingents of Iraqi combatants; however, the number of personnel participating is still unknown.

While the government forces continue to mobilize men and women for this imminent offensive, the Syrian army troops are still advancing at the strategic town of Kabani on the border of Idlib.

Once Kabani is captured, the Syrian forces will split-up: one unit will push West towards the al-Ghaab Plains, while another legion will push Northwest towards the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour.

On Wednesday, the terrorist groups in Syria admitted that the al-Nusra Front terrorist group is evacuating all its sites and positions and retreating from the town of Abu al-Dhuhour in Idlib province.

A military source reported that militants’ coordination room has informed other militant groups that the al-Nusra Front has started the process of leaving its positions in Abu al-Dhuhour as part of its preparations to retreat further back to other militant held regions.


Kurdish Fighters Ready to Push South towards Raqqa, Deir Ezzur

TEHRAN (FNA)- Deployment of a large number of ready-to-fight forces only 40 kilometers from Raqqa and 60 kilometers from Deir Ezzur has enabled the Kurdish fighters to capture the two key cities in rapid large-scale operations in the near future, military sources said on Friday.

“The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) have kept advancing almost daily towards Raqqa and Deir Ezzur cities from the North while government troops are pressing on from the West,” the sources said.

The YPG Kurds have recently bonded with the Damascus government. The Syrian army sent several arms cargoes to the YPG troops in the Northeastern province of Hasaka and trained the first group of Kurdish volunteer forces in the provincial capital city of Hasaka last month.

The SDF that is comprised of mainly Kurdish fighters as well as a few hundred Syrian Arab dissident forces have received trainings from the US and have been provided with scanty US-coalition air support in their battles in Raqqa province in Northeastern Syria; but in Northern and Northwestern battlefronts, they have been operating alongside the YPG and received the Russian air backup in their Aleppo wars that started with the conquest of Tishrin Dam on the Euphrates early in February.

Assisted by the Syrian army that has conquered almost all militant-held regions in Eastern, Southern, Western and Northwestern Aleppo province – and Russian air support, the Kurdish forces fighting against the terrorists in North-Northeast Aleppo province have been making striking advances against the Al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham and ISIL terrorists in February.

In February, the YPG and SDF fighters prevailed over the terrorists in the highly strategic city of Tal Rifat in Northern Aleppo and captured the city.

The YPG, who enjoyed the Russian air backup, prevailed the terrorists’ positions from the Western direction and shook hand with the Kurdish units of the SDF who entered the town from the North.


ISIL Terrorists Killed in Russian Blitzkriegs in Homs

TEHRAN (FNA)- Over 100 terrorists have been killed and scores more wounded in the Russian fighter jets’ air raids on ISIL positions in different parts of the Central Homs province in the last 48 hours, military sources said on Friday.

“Over the past 48 hours, the Russian Air Force has been relentless in the Eastern territories of the Homs province, striking several sites controlled by the ISIL near the strategic town of Quaryatayn and the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur), which has claimed the lives of at least 100 terrorists,” the sources said.

Earlier reports said that the Russian fighter jets carried out several combat flights over the ISIL terrorists’ concentration centers in the Eastern part of Homs province and inflicted major losses on the militants.

Over 20 ISIL terrorists were killed and fifty more were wounded after the group’s positions in two regions of al-Duweh and Jabal Hayyan in the Western and Southwestern parts of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) came under the heavy airstrikes of the Russian warplanes.

The Russian air fleets’ operation near Palmyra provided very good aerial support for the Syrian ground forces, who for their part, inflicted major casualties on the terrorists.
