The latest news of the fighting in Syria on 17 August 2019 year

Desperate terrorist attacks

Despite the apparent casualties among the militants, the latter are making desperate attempts to attack areas and towns recently occupied by the Syrian army in the northern part of the Hama province and the southern part of Idlib province. It is known that at least three missiles from anti-tank systems were fired at SAA positions, a number of positions were hit by MLRS, and in addition, terrorists also began to use the so-called jihad mobiles.

Most of the attacks of the militants are successfully repelled, since the Syrian army managed to occupy high-altitude areas, while the militants do not make desperate attempts to storm the fortified areas, realizing that the losses could be serious, and the Syrian army will immediately attempt to counterattack.

Khan Shaykhun's bombing

Despite attempts by terrorists to attack the positions of the Syrian Arab Army, Syrian government forces are actively attacking a large settlement in Idlib Khan Sheikhun, using both artillery and combat aircraft.

At the moment, attacks are carried out intermittently, which allows local residents to evacuate, however, according to preliminary estimates, the assault on Khan Sheikhun may begin within the next few days.

Betrayal from Turkey

Turkey refused to discuss with Russia the issue of conducting a military operation in northern Syria, once again demonstrating the lack of reliability in conducting military operations in Syria.

It is noteworthy that in the northern part of Syria the Russian military may be located, in connection with which, the upcoming Turkish attacks can be a serious threat.
