The latest news of the fighting in Syria on 19 August 2019 year

Syrian troops in Khan Sheikhun

This morning, Syrian government forces were able to occupy about 20% of the city of Khan Sheikhun, located in the southern part of Idlib province. The offensive of the Syrian Arab Army practically did not meet resistance from militants, especially since the terrorist fortifications were initially destroyed in this area.

According to information provided on social networks, the militants tried to counterattack the Syrian military from the north, however, as a result of a series of attacks, the militants suffered significant losses - about 97 terrorists were destroyed under a hail of artillery and air strikes, and about a hundred more were injured.

According to representatives of the Syrian Ministry of Defense, the capture of Khan Sheikhun under the control of the SAA can be completed within the next 72 hours.

Russia delivered an ultimatum to Turkey: first consequences

According to Western media, as part of the offensive in the south of Idlib, Russia delivered an ultimatum to the Turkish military - to leave all observation posts in the southern part of Idlib and the northern part of Hama within the next 24 hours, otherwise the Turkish military would not be guaranteed.

Nevertheless, the Turkish military, apparently, refused to fulfill such conditions, and sent their armored vehicles to Khan Sheikhun, however, an air strike was inflicted on the convoy on the way to its advancement - according to some sources, the attack was carried out by the Syrian combat training aircraft L -39, and in others - a Russian fighter.

Terrorists go prisoner

Despite a series of statements by militants that they intend to defend their positions until the last, and even about some victories over the SAA and the Russian military, it became known that in reality, terrorists are starting to surrender, as evidenced by frames presented by the elite Syrian unit of the Tiger Force.

This case is far from the only one, however, in fact, this is evidence that the militants do not want to fall under the blows of the Syrian military.
