    From two different axes, the army will advance and shred through the exhausted "army" of HTS. There is also a new ISIS presence in the region and AQ vs IS is always a good development for the government forces.

    "BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 A.M.) – The operation to capture the strategic Abu Dhuhour Military Airbase has begun, with several divisions from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) pushing from two directions.

    Led by the Tiger Forces and 4th Division, the Syrian Arab Army are pushing from both the Hama and Aleppo governorates, as Russian fighters jets and attack choppers hammer the defenses of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham at the Abu Dhuhour Military Airbase.

    According to a military source, the Syrian Army’s 40th Brigade of the 4th Division, alongside the Qalamoun Shield forces and 11th Tank Division are responsible for the SAA’s push from the northeastern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

    Meanwhile, at the Khanasser front in southern Aleppo, the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces and 39th Division of the 4th Division are preparing to launch a powerful attack from the Abu Dhuhour’s eastern flank.

    With the Syrian military pushing from two different flanks, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham will be forced to reinforce the area, as they do not have the numbers to confront such a large government force."

    France and Turkey fear for their terrorists as the SAA advances. Both countries called Russia and Iran to stop them but this will probably not have any impact. Neither Fracne nor Turkey were interested when large scale offensives were started against the government troops. We have the typical accusations: Bombing civilians and hospitals. The terrorist entities occupying France and Turkey have always been fierce supporters of Nusra, ISIS and anyone who fights the Syrian government.

    Aleppo based Palestinian militia Jerusalem Brigade assists the army in the operations. Their US arms were captured from ISIS. ISIS captured them from Iraqi troops.

    A counteroffensive by the "rebels" was conducted with mixed results. One spearhead (Ahrar al-Sham) ran into a prepared trap and ended up in MG and artillery crossfire. Another (Turkistan Islamic Party) claims to be more successful with "tens of dead soldiers" but there is no confirmation. A third, conducted by ISIS, claims 3 soldiers dead and 5 captured.

    Turkey suffered a big rebuff as Russia considers the elimination of terrorists a priority. The attempt shows Turkey´s and France´s true intentions: Save their terrorists from total defeat. Russia said:
    "We are just attacking terrorists. And this of course causes anger for some actors because much money was invested in the fighters."

    Unfortunately for rebelz their offensive is over and the army reversed all their gains and resumes the offensive. The army has opened another frontier in southwest Aleppo today, capturing already 12 towns. Syria´s foreign minister said US and Turkey must withdraw their troops from Syria.
