People throwing stones and shoes to the evacuating buses
Including the one from the screencaps at least 3 fighters were wearing GoPro´s.
Considering that the next target after Daraa is Northern Syria, this "victory" is nothing but useless murder against the Syrian people and will be incredibly short lived for the attackers.
I count five.
You count five, but loyalist news pages today post list of 25 killed SAA soldiers, incl 8 officers. Sad but true.
Raids are good for moral, but do nothing to change the strategic picture.
And I'm proud of you. The only thing you and some other pro opp can do now is cheering some skirmish of rebels or DAESH vs the SAA. If you ask me it was an failed attempt of ofensive against these posts of SAA who were trusting in the de-escalation agreement implemented and the turkish observation post who are "incapable" to stop this kind of actions.
There are 2 post in Latakia.
I for one appreciate pro-rebel posters still coming around and posting information from pro-rebel sources. Obviously not all of it is correct, nowhere near but it's still interesting to know what goes on in Idlib and Latakia.
I also don't see an issue with him pointing out the above poster was wrong.
As for what this was, it was an Inghimasi raid, and was reported as such. HTS and Hurras al-Deen have both been doing these raids in northern Latakia fairly recently. These are not full offensives, just raids to boost morale and potentially seize something worthwhile. As for Turkey's control over these groups, they never had particularly great control over HTS or Hurras al-Deen, but most recently (until 8th of this month) HTS has not done any type of military operation in support of Daraa while Hurras al-Deen has and it's causing Hurras al-Deen to seize popular support, at least partially
This to me indicates that while Turkey may hold some level of sway over HTS, they don't influence HAD in the same manner.
an failed attempt of ofensive
No, the attack was successful raid.
SAA who were trusting in the de-escalation agreement
Then they made a mistake. People of rebel held Daraa were also trusting in the de-escalation agreement and we all know how it turned out. Nobody gives a shit about "de-escalation agreements".
