Is Russia Turning Turkey?

Has Russia gone missing in Syria?  There is no mention of any Russian activity in recent days to assist its supposedly allied partner, the Syrian government, in its struggle against a Turkish invasion.  Other than the sending of two missile ships of the Russian navy through the Bosphorus, that is.  I don't see what help...

Syria: Time To Take The Gloves Off

"IRANIAN FORCES IN SYRIA WARN TURKISH MILITARY OVER RECENT DRONE STRIKES ON GREATER IDLIB" - Southfront I sometimes forget that there are Iranian forces and militias, including the equally noble forces of Hezbollah in Syria, fighting alongside Syrian government troops.

Having agreed (or not) on their joint plans for the day, the terrorists -... Continue Reading →

Syrian Advance Continues In Idlib

The Syrian army has continued its advance yesterday all along the eastern Idlib front south of the M4.  Their intention is to obviously close off that whole region to terrorists and make the Turkish positions untenable there by controlling that major roadway. In this regard they are totally ignoring the presence of Turkish forces in... Continue Reading →

Syrian Idlib Offensive

Well, it seems someone got a little ahead of themselves yesterday.  Yes, a new Syrian offensive has opened in southern and eastern Idlib and a number of towns have been liberated from terrorist control, but not the ones I mentioned yesterday.  It is just a matter of time though.   I usually try to be careful...
