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

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, but as a result of a series of attacks, the militants suffered significant losses - about 97 terrorists were killed under a hail of artillery and air strikes, and about a hundred 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 reports, as part of an offensive operation in southern Idlib, Russia delivered an ultimatum to the Turkish military - to leave within the next 24 hours all observation posts in the southern part of Idlib and the northern part of Hama - otherwise the security of the Turkish military will not be guaranteed.

Nevertheless, the Turkish military, apparently, refused to comply with such conditions, and sent their armored vehicles to Khan Sheikhun, but on the way of its advance, an air strike was struck on the convoy - according to one source, the attack was carried out by a Syrian combat training aircraft L -39, and according to 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.
