The Syrian air force raided the terrorists’ military positions in Damascus province, and inflicted heavy losses on them.

The Syrian army also inflicted heavy losses on the terrorist groups in other key regions across Syria.


The Syrian air force pounded militants’ positions and gathering centers in Western Aleppo, killing at least 31 terrorists, sources close to the dissidents reported.

According to the pro-militant Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the militants were killed during airstrikes on their bases in the Western parts of Aleppo.

The report came after news websites close to the terrorists reported that tens of the members of the newly-formed Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants were killed in the Syrian air force’s attacks on al-Bohouth al-Ilmiyah building in the Western parts of Aleppo city on Thursday.

The Syrian air force also targeted al-Nusra (Fatah al-Sham) Front’s positions in al-Lataminah, Tal Hwash and Sahab regions, inflicting loss and damage on the terrorists.

Meantime, the Syrian troops repelled militants’ attacks from the Northern parts of Hor Benafseh region against the army positions in Jadrin village in Southwestern Hama.

An army unit foiled al-Nusra (Fatah al-Sham) Front terrorists’ attack with a bomb-laden car on a military post in al-Menshiyeh neighborhood in the Southern province of Dara’a.

The army forces destroyed a car loaded with huge amounts of highly explosive materials driven by a suicide bomber belonging to al-Nusra to the South of Bilal al-Habashi Mosque before reaching a military post in the vicinity of al-Menshiyeh neighborhood in Dara’a al-Balad area.

Meantime, one of the terrorists’ sites was destroyed and a number of them were killed or injured during the army’s strikes on the fortifications of terrorist groups in Dara’a al-Balad.

A field source also said that an army unit destroyed vehicles loaded with ammunition for al-Nusra Front in the area surrounding Busra al-Sham hotel in the city of Busra to the East of Daraa city.

The source noted that the army’s artillery units destroyed a site for al-Nusra Front in the area surrounding Gharz Silos in the Eastern parts of Dara’a.


The Syrian army resumed its offensive in the Eastern parts of Damascus after terrorists refused to surrender in Barzeh, al-Qaboun and Harasta.

Following a two-day-long ceasefire, a Syrian government delegation met to finalize terms of the peace agreement with the rebel forces; however, Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at leaders refused to withdraw from the Eastern parts of Damascus despite the calls for peace from the residents.

Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at launched an assault on one of the Syrian army checkpoints near al-Qaboun after the government delegation asked to meet with the terrorist group’s commanders.

The attack by Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at was responded by the Syrian army’s 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and 106th Brigade of the Republican Guard in al-Qaboun, Barzeh and Harasta.

The Syrian army started firing advanced ground-to-ground missiles against the positions of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at on Thursday night, followed by two hours of nonstop shelling.

UN-backed Geneva meeting enters 3rd day

Intra-Syrian talks focusing on format rather than essence

A spokesman for the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces says the US has promised to supply the group with heavy weapons.

Talal Sello says the promise was made by head of the US Central Command General Joseph Votel during a trip to northern Syria. According to the spokesman, the US general discussed with top SDF commanders different issues, including more Washington support for the SDF forces during the Trump administration. He said different military matters were also discussed during the meetings. The SDF is an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militants fighting the Daesh terrorist group. It enjoys Washington’s support.

Iraqi Forces Push Deeper into Western Mosul

Iraqi forces pushed deeper into Western Mosul on Saturday after recapturing the city’s airport from the ISIL group and punching into built-up areas of the militants’ last major stronghold in the country.

Iraqi army troops pressed ahead with their offensive to retake Western Mosul from the ISIL terrorists as Baghdad forces managed to liberate the Mosul International Airport and the Ghazlani military base since the beginning of their fresh round of military operation.

The Iraqi forces are now less than 3km from the mosque in Mosul’s old city where in 2014 ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a caliphate spanning Iraq and Syria.

Meanwhile, Brigadier General Hisham Abdul Kadhim annoounced that the Iraqi Federal Police have completely recaptured Hawi al-Josaq, North of the airport, and begun clearing houses in the Tayyaran district, adding that ISIL was resisting with snipers and roadside bombs.

Separately, counter-terrorism forces were advancing in two directions towards Wadi Hajr and Mamoun districts.

According to Middle East Eye, commanders expect the battle in Western Mosul to be more difficult, in part because tanks and armoured vehicles cannot pass through the narrow alleyways that crisscross ancient districts of the city.

The Iraqi Army started a new phase of its military operation in Nineveh province on Sunday to drive the ISIL terrorists out of their bastion in the Western part of the city of Mosul.

With half the city under the control of Baghdad forces, the Iraqi Armed Forces will likely face heavier resistance in the Western part of Mosul, as the ISIL attempts to hold onto their final positions.

Local sources had disclosed that the ISIL is preventing civilians in the Western part of the city of Mosul from leaving the region in a move to use them as human shields as the terrorist group’s positions are under intensifying attacks by various troops.

The Iraqi defense ministry announced earlier in January that the ISIL terrorist group has lost over 50 percent of its militants in the city of Mosul in Nineveh province as Iraqi troops have managed to recapture the Eastern part of the de facto Capital of the ISIL.

“The intelligence obtained by us indicates that there have been over 6,000 ISIL terrorists in Mosul and around 3,400 of them have been killed in battles with Iraq’s joint military forces in the major city of Nineveh province,” Iraqi Defense Ministry Spokesman Colonel Laith al-Naimi said in January.

He added that over 250 bomb-laden vehicles and the entire bomb-making workshops of the terrorists have been destroyed in Mosul which means that the ISIL has been paralyzed by the Iraqi forces.

Abadi had announced on October 17, the start of a military operation to recapture Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq which fell to the ISIL since 2014.
