SECOND POST – AUGUST 16, 2012 – SYRPER’S PREDICTION DEAD ON; FSA SUFFERS INCONTROVERTIBLE CATASTROPHE IN ALEPPO; LIES FROM ARABIA AND ZIONIST ALLIES OF THE SAUD CLAN
This in fresh from Aleppo, courtesy of our sources and Hussein Mortada, Al-Alam’s reporter, covering the fighting in that city. Al-Alam has been delivering the goods every day from Aleppo through their redoubtable journalist, Hussein Mortada, who is embedded with our Syrian Third Army Corps (Al-Faylaq Al-Thalith).
Hussein Mortada reports only in Arabic for the Iranian Arabic-language “Al-Alam”, a 24 hours news program which gives detailed coverage of events in Syria. People may differ, but he is one of the world’s best news reporters. He has been threatened repeatedly with death by the FSA.
Mortada reported yesterday that the Syrian army had killed 100 or so FSA criminals in fighting around Sayf-Al-Dawla. What the report did not include was the exact area where the killing ground was located. As SyrPer predicted, the park lands abutting on to the district became a natural magnet for escaping militants. They were annihilated as they tried in vain to find cover. Those that made it through the gauntlet found themselves in areas like Sukkari and Hanano where some neighborhoods took potshots at them with hunting rifles. Seven criminals were killed near Aziziyyeh when angry inhabitants opened fire on them. Amazingly, the militants could not fire back indicating they had run out of ammunition.
Our source tells us that the population of Aleppo is fully aware of the make-up of the FSA. They are aware that the FSA is Islamist and heavily infiltrated by Libyan goons who are essentially paid mercenaries collecting their weekly checks from the “democracy-loving” princes of Arabia. Whatever the case, our nephew has confirmed that the number of militants killed yesterday in the army’s onslaught reached over 200! When I asked him to reflect on that number, he wrote that he was “absolutely certain” that the numbers given by Al-Alam were too conservative. This means that over one-third of the FSA force in Aleppo has been eradicated.
Special Forces marching before the battle of Aleppo. Their role has been crucial to the defeat of the militants. There were some who suggested that the high command was afraid to use them because of the chance of defection. That did not happen.
Our nephew writes that Aleppo will be terrorist free in a few days although everybody thinks that some remnants will stay hidden among poorer Sunni Aleppans who have been promised some emolument for their indulgence. But Lt. Gen. Al-Fureij is on a mission to avenge the deaths of his comrades in the Damascus bombing engineered by spies and operatives of Saudi Arabia and Israel.
Which brings us to another subject related to the one above. Yesterday, our colleague, John Esquire called me while I was with some friends and asked about the article from the Zionist rag, Haaretz, which he had sent to me. The article essentially made two points:
The first was that Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mikhail Leonidovich Bogdanov, told the Saudi tabloid “Al-Watan” that Dr. Assad was prepared to step down from office.
Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bogdanov, was in Saudi Arabia and supposedly made some wild statements
The second was that Brig. Gen. Maher Al-Assad was “fighting for his life” after the July 18, 2012 bombing which killed three Syrian generals. Haaretz claims that General Al-Assad lost both legs and was at the meeting when an explosion planted by a “bodyguard” took the lives of members of the “inner circle”.
He is the commander of the elite 4th Mechanized Armored Division attached to Syria’s First Army Corps.
We know the Haaretz article is flawed. First of all, Bogdanov is not a deputy foreign minister as written up by the notoriously sloppy Zionist yellow rag. He is a deputy minister of foreign affairs. Morever, Mr. Bogdanov has called the reports in Al-Watan “false” and has accused the staff of doctoring his statement on tape to make it sound like Dr. Assad would abdicate. Russia denies categorically any such statement.
As far as the Maher Al-Assad story is concerned, we note that the Haaretz people did not mention that it was four (4) generals who were killed: Rajiha, Shawkat, Turkmani and Yikhtiar. Amazingly, the tabloid suggests that the government of Syria was able to keep quiet the injuries to General Maher Al-Assad. Also, if the injuries took place on July 18, 2012, why is he fighting for his life on August 16, 2012? Our information is that he is alive and well and commanding the 4th Division in Aleppo and Anadan. If any other information arrives, we will share it with our readers.
