    133 terrorists have surrendered today in and around Homs. This follows on from the surrender of 23 more last week.

    Its not yet clear if they are SAA regulars or NDF or any other militias supporting the fight against the terrorists.

    Here is the location of the video. Also there are reports that they were prisoners. No weapons. No evasive maneuvering. No retreat. One guy sat up and waited to be shot.

    More than 300 members of the al-Nusra Front terrorist group were killed in clashes near the Syrian city of Retyan in the Aleppo province.

    The death of the militants occurred as a result of heavy fighting near the city of Retyan in the province of Aleppo, a source told TV channel Al-Mayadin under condition of anonymity.

    The Syrian armed forces were said to have eliminated 300 fighters during the fierce fighting in the area over the last few days.

    "The militants have confirmed the death of 300 al-Nusra Front in the battle for Retyan in the north of Aleppo," the channel reported, citing the source as saying.

    Last week, the government forces cut off the main supply routes of terrorists in the Aleppo province. With the help of Russian military forces and local militias, the Syrian military also managed to break the four-year blockade of two cities, with an overall population of around 70,000 inhabitants.

    After recent advances #SAA closes in on north #Aleppo:

    Tell Rifaat - 10km

    Azaz - 20km

    Turkish border - 25km

    Great to see a larger map. In the east of Aleppo, SAA should just strike in direction of Suran and Shamir to encircle ISIS and than clean, what is inside. In this case SAA will practically draw a northern front line, which could as well be a dividing line between SAA and Kurds. I don't think SAA should go further north, but should direct forces on east to reach Euphrates river and than the territories in the south direction. Kurds from the northwestern corner should reach Kurds at the Euphrates river in wide enough stripe, that they could defend against Turks and provide cover to SAA back, when they will engage terrorists south of Aleppo.

    ^^^ adding to the above... It almost looks like SAA and YPG are jointly massacring the "moderates" in N. Aleppo.

    My take on that is that they want to stall Syrian Army as much as possible so that they could take highway and Azaz, basically as much as they can. They are playing dirty here, from what i see.

    Unconfirmed Reports that tomorrow Ibtaa and Dael will surrender and raise Syrian flag. Residents of Dael said they will do it if Ibta does that first.

    Those two towns are blocking segment of Damascus - Daraa highway.

    what are the official objectives of YPG in this war? do we know?

    1. Autonomy?
    2. Independence for Kurds?
    3. Just armed protection from ISIS?

    so SAA is against them since they seek partition of the country. They fight both Turkey and Syria
