BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new offensive in the southeastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate on Thursday.

Led by the 25th Special Mission Forces Division (formerly Tiger Forces), the Syrian Arab Army kicked off the offensive by capturing two towns and several points in southeastern Idlib.


According to a Syrian Army source in nearby Hama, this attack on Thursday is the just the preliminary assault. A much larger attack is expected to be launched in the coming days.

Furthermore, the source says the primary objective of this attack in southeastern Idlib is to build a pocket around the key town of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, which is located directly north of Khan Sheikhoun.

The source added that the Syrian Army will expand the offensive by pushing towards Ma’arat Al-Nu’man from two different axes; these axes will be the southwestern and southeastern flanks of the city.

This battle contingency is similar to the Syrian Army’s previous attacks on Khan Sheikhoun and Kafr Zita. By creating a pocket around the town, the Syrian Army leaves the militant forces with one road to flee the area. If the militants refuse to leave, they will be eventually besieged by the army.

Ma’arat Al-Nu’man may prove to be difficult for the army, however, as the town is well defended and has long been a pro-opposition stronghold.

The FSA is just a name and nothing else.
The Original Organization went under in 2013 after Riad Al-Asaad got greeted with a bombing from Al-Nusra Front. (FUN FACT: He's allies with them now)

Because they have no real way to stop it. its not like ww2 where you had forces of near equal strength trying to get any advantage what so ever.

Reminds me of this
Tour of the abandoned US military base near Manbij | October 2019 | Syria
“War Diary” project | Manbij, Syria |

Russian journalists accompanied a Russian military patrol as it visited an abandoned US base outside Manbij, Syria providing unique footage showing what American troops left behind during their hasty retreat from the area earlier this month Along with an estimated 300 US servicemen, the base housed about 15 vehicles, which US forces used to patrol the area . The videos also shows other areas of the base, including a soundproof room believed to have been the base’s command centre, the canteen, laundry room, barracks, and more.

According to the Syrian Army, which now controls the facility, most of the equipment left behind by the US is in working order. The military said a second US base about 9.5 km to the north near the settlement of Dadat has also been placed under Syrian military control.

I think spending several years in a country-wide warzone while fighting off every world/regional power, outside of Russia and Iran, all while having to deal with constant assassination attempts to boot have drained him of any possible fucks to give at this point.
Be French-assimilated ophthalmologist
Marry very attractive Sunni Syrian lady
Get forced to take over Leadership of Syria due to untimely death of brother
Try to embrace 'Western democracy'
'Western democracies' ally with Saudi Arabia (which did 9/11) to impose takfiri dominion on the good people of Syria

If anything good can be said for the Zionist efforts to destroy Syria and every other independent nation in the Middle East, it is the high quality of leaders who have arisen to battle against them and their Saudi puppets and 'ISIS'.
