SECOND POST – OCTOBER 9, 2012 – AL-QAEDA FAILED ATTACK ON SYRIAN AF INTEL HQ DISMAL; ALL ATTACKERS KILLED. NO SYRIAN OFFICIALS HURT IN INCIDENT.
If you want the real news, hear it from Monzer in Damascus: The Jabhat Al-Nusra (read: Al-Qaeda) attack on the Air Force Intelligence building in Harasta, outside Damascus, was a dismal failure as the foreign terrorists could not get their vehicles close enough to cause any damage to the edifice. Chief of AF Intel, Lt. Gen. Jamil Hassan, was not in the building anyways, but is reportedly in Homs directing clean-up operations.
With the spate of attacks on government buildings over the last few months, AF Intel. was not going to be caught with its pants down. No car is allowed to approach the building unless a special pass is issued. The pass is encoded with Russian technology that detects any efforts to copy or modify the ciphers. Anyone who reaches a fail-safe point of 200 yards from one of the two main entrances and does not stop as required by the large orange signs outside the complex, is shot on sight. And that is exactly what happened. The so-called suicide bombers were hoisted by their own petard while Syrian AF security guards sprayed them with more ammunition than that used for Bonnie and Clyde. According to Monzer, the terrorists who blew themselves up were not believed to be Syrian because no i.d. was found on their incinerated, nearly-vaporized bodies. This has become typical MO for these foreign-born apes who don’t want it to be known that Al-Qaeda has coopted this so-called Syrian revolt.
This photo demonstrates clearly that the bombings took place far from the actual HQ of AF Intel in Harasta. The only people killed were the perpetrators. Monzer says that some civilians may have been killed but that has to be determined as the scene is investigated.
It appears that when the first vehicle was approaching without stopping, security guards opened fire leaving the driver with no option but to prematurely detonate his one ton of explosives. Another bomber who wanted to kill the rescuers (using a well-known Iraqi terrorist trick) also detonated early which diminished the intended effect of the bombs. Lot’s of noise, as Monzer said, but little damage. A dismal failure for the grubs sent by Obama & Company.
General Jamil Hassan, a veteran of intelligence work in Syria, was in Homs watching the terrorists giving up the ghost in Khaldiyya. Even the terrorists have warned that their presence in Homs Province has been withering.
I asked Monzer how it is these killers are allowed to find safe houses so easily – especially garages and the like – to put together these bomb-laden trucks and vans. Monzer says that the terrorists plan ahead using an apparently Western-type strategy of “slow and incremental nesting” (تعشيش بطيئ و تدريجي) in buildings leased by apparently legitimate people. In this case, one of the vans was painted like an ambulance, but, the evidence, he says, shows that the guards were quite alert and detected something wrong with the vehicle. That’s why they opened fire and stopped the terrorist from getting close to the target. Monzer says that the ambulance siren was blaring to give cover, but the guards didn’t fall for it.
The terrorists organization which claimed responsibility for this botched operation also commented that prisoners were inside the HQ building. Monzer says that AF Intel prisoners are not kept in that building or any annex at the complex. If any prisoners were there, it would be temporary. So much for the usual blather from these NATO-supported killers.
These are Syrian guards who don’t seem a bit frazzled by any explosion in Harasta.
Here is an up-close picture of the non-damage to the buildings at AF Intel.
