SYRIAN AIR FORCE THROTTLES ISIS AT AL-QAA`EM, ALBUKAMAAL; MANBIJ MOSTLY LIBERATED

2

ALEPPO:

Al-Manbij:  This important town northeast of Aleppo has been occupied, terrorized and exploited by the FSA for over 2 years since it was attacked and the SAA withdrew from it.  With forces in Aleppo now freed to conduct other operations in the north, including A’zaaz, that situation has changed.  It appears from reports garnered from Wael that the appearance of the army around Al-Manbij compelled the terrorists inside to begin negotiations.  This, plus the promise of Amnesty, is now producing important results.  The only problem has been the entrenched criminal racketeers who are not interested in giving up their wealth and territory.  That narrative is being addressed today, as I write.

 

    

 

Look carefully at the map – scroll to a wider view and you can see the army now positioned to strike at Al-Raqqa on the southeast highway.  Already, reports are coming in, from our readers also, that the SAAF is conducting sorties against ISIS strong points around the city in a process that appears to be part of a softening-up strategy.  The belief is now that the SAA wants the ISIS terrorists to move eastward toward the Iraqi border as part of a coordinated strategy with the IA.

Bustaan Al-Qassr:  A confirmed 13 Nusra terrorists were killed here yesterday along with the destruction of 5 vans containing ammunition and one cannon.

‘Aamer Sakayf (a/k/a “Al-Shaykh”)

Qaassem ‘Abdoon

Aadam Nawaaf

The rest were foreigners who have not been identified yet.

 

Fighting intense in these areas: Karm Al-Jabal, Al-Saakhoor, Al-Marja, Al-Hilwaaniyya, Baab Al-Nassr, Al-Muyassar, Al-Zurba, Al-Indhaaraat, A’zaaz, Rasm Al-‘Abbood, Al-Shuwaykhna, Maayer.

 

IRAQ: SAAF HAS KILLED THE “COMMANDER” OF ISIS AT AL-QAA`EM.  THIS IS CONFIRMED ALTHOUGH HIS NAME HAS NOT BEEN REVEALED YET.  He was killed in a strafing by SAA Sukhoi bombers now active all over this area.

Al-Ramaadi:  Near Tharthar Lake, the SAAF conducting several sorties east of west of Al-Ramaadi and west of Tal ‘Afar killing 7 cannibals among whom was:

Mu’tassem ‘Abdul-Rahmaan

 

CAVEAT TO READERS:  SANA and the Syrian Ministry of Information has been playing down Syria’s role in the air over Iraq because there was a belief that the Iraqi government of Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki did not want to publicize its need for assistance in the areas we just mentioned.  The disavowal by the Syrian MoI and blame cast on “biased media sources” for the reports puzzled us because it seemed that supporting the Iraqi government was a badge of honor.  We suspect that Minister ‘Umraan Al-Zu’bi will relent on this issue since the cat’s out of the bag.  SyrPer was the first to report the air assault on Tal ‘Afar, by the way.

 

MOQTADAA AL-SADR IS BACK!  HE HAS VOWED TO SHAKE THE EARTH FROM UNDER ISIS.  We will try to obtain unique reports about his return to the political scene and the revitalization of his Al-Mahdi warriors.

Other than inherit his surname, Muqtada hasn’t done a whole lot. I’m not very impressed by him at all. His coming out of the shadows is simply fanning the flames of sectarian violence even more.

Love the news on ar-Raqqah. Hopefully by Syria working with Iraq and Iraq they can soon neutralize this menace. Syria is doing the world a great service in putting down all the jihadi rats that have travelled the world over to party like it’s 699.

Finally the SAA is cleansing Aleppo with tangible results! I love to hear cities freed from the rats! Also Sayyed Moqatada Al Sadr shall crush the ISIS Inshallah, those rats are no match to the brave men of Jaish Al Mahdi (Mahdi Army) who didn’t allow the occupying forces of the U.S. sleep a night.

After Manbij is liberated,then the SAA progress will be a lot easier in Northern Aleppo,I think SAA should start with the border town of Jarabulus,thus partially removing ISIS control in Aleppo(al-Bab serves as another HQ to ISIS in Aleppo)

How can The SAA conduct large ground missions in the middle of isis held territory?

This is good news, it would be good to update the maps because you can see that there has been an enormous advance by the SAA, really spectacular. Instead of losing many men in reducing the terrorists in their entrenched positions in Aleppo, are pushing north to cut off their supply routes, and are now threatening the ISIS headquarters in Raqqa. Brilliant move, fail in Deir Ezzor Ez things have been slower by each more violent clashes between Nusra and ISIS that have forced the Chechens officially take Nusra match, taking away floor to Abu Omar Al chichani (ex soldier… Read more »

Regarding the SAF bombing in Iraq, I can’t say this for sure but maybe they are downplaying it because the West had worked themselves up into a lather about it, claiming that the SAF killed 57 civilians. Moreover John Frankenstein Kerry is blowing off at the maw warning iran ans syria to back off. https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/news/middle-east/12352-calls-for-un-investigation-into-syrian-air-force-targeting-iraq http://time.com/2925033/john-kerry-iraq-syria-iran/ So maybe in the wake of this continued international conspiracy they are just staying mum on the whole deal.

This is marvelous news. I am amazex by SAA reaching Al Manbij and freeing it up, a clear by pass of Al Bab, by the way, is there an encirclement of Al Bab, before reaching Al Raqqa, it is recommendable to secure supply lines in Al Bab. Great move to push for Al Raqqa while ISIS is having fun in Iraq, time is critical, once it falls, al ISIS precense in northern Syria will be fragile. Push on mighty SAA.

Probably the main purpose it isn’t attacking immediately Al-Raqqah wich probably will be heavly fortified, but estabilishing a strong-hold to slow down the access from the North- East of the country to ISIS, to choke even more Aleppo City and the rebel-helded suburbs in North Aleppo.

Well given we see ISIS on the march in Iraq, JNA in some measure purportedly joining forces with ISIS, and last week 10 military retardates from the FSA millitary council quitting last week do you know what time it is? It is time for Barry the Bumhacker to ask congress for half a billion dollars to “arm vetted moderate opposition.” Yeah right, that’s a real knee slapper because the moderate opposition is now largely fighting on the side of the SAA or living in Amsterdam eating pancakes and smoking weed. http://www.timescolonist.com/obama-seeks-500-million-to-train-and-equip-vetted-members-of-syrian-opposition-1.1159388 There you have it folks.

I’m not surprised that a politician is doing the public denial foolishness. That’s what politicians do, mostly. I agree that SAAF helping out the Iraqis is an honorable thing to do, and what one might expect of a good neighbor but, hey! I’m no politician. With any luck this help will give the IqAF enough breathing room to get some aircraft and ordinance Politicians always try to mealy mouth around anything they even THINK might be important, instead of saying, ‘Hell yes, we’re helping ’em out!

The Saga Of German Weapons For The Arab World http://www.eurasiareview.com/25062014-saga-german-weapons-arab-world-oped/ On June 11, 2014, it happened again. Under pressure from the opposition in parliament, the German coalition government led by the Christian Democratic chancellor Angela Merkel admitted that the country’s military exports in 2013 had grown again, this time by 25 percent compared to the year before. The government was also constrained to reveal that most of the weapons were exported to Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Qatar, Pakistan, and Israel. But, even as of today, you can assess what these political principles are worth. Since years, Germany has been selling… Read more »

In the aftermath of its conquest of Mosul, the jihadi organization ISIS has been recognized as the richest terrorist organization in the world. Where does its money come from?

The Mahdi Army wasn’t as good as the Naqshabandiya Men. They used primitive tactics of massed assaults.
But against islamist hordes, what else can work? I’m not sure if I should be happy that Sadr is back in black,
but I do hope that somehow this useless Maliki will be replaced once the situation has been largely stabilized.
Do it now! Putin told Maliki he supported every action to destroy the ISIL offensive. What are you waiting for?

The dark, Evil Force behind the great spiritual deception, behind Talmudism, behind the Evil Jewish Leadership, and behind and the Jewish One World Agenda is also the very same Dark Force behind the Judaising of Christianity. It is the very same Dark Force that plotted the death of Jesus Christ, his Apostles and followers and orchestrated the persecution of the Early Church. It is, of course, the Ancient Dark Force, an Active Principle in the Created Cosmos, better known as Evil.

As i said before why would America intervene straight away when it has the Assad regime, Iran, Turkey and others to do its dirty work. You people have no idea what is going on, the pathetic regime representative Bouthaina Shabaan is in Oslo meeting with Western leaders and think tanks in order to auction off Syria’s independence under the banner of ‘fighting terrorism’ and ‘unity government’. All of these amnesties in Syria are designed to allow Western connected politicians to ‘play a role’ in the Syrian government.

It’s time to declare unity between Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. All three are the targets of this CIA sponsored Caliphate project which is designed to use extremists to fight America’s enemies. Notice ISIS is not threatening Israel, but it is supposed to be for “Iraq and Al-Sham” The target is the resistance. The resistance are Shia. Therefore, this is a war on the Shia. Everyone should rally to their defense, but in sectarian terms that doesn’t happen. Israel wants the Kurds to declare independence and then let Sunni Shia fight it out to the death. The Kurds won’t engage ISIS… Read more »

The US-Government hopes that Iran invades to prevent the destruction of the shiite Shrines, and then the majority of the Sunnies stand together against Iran. So the uSA have no more power to fight an expensive war for Israel, but with a bunch of Money they want to finish Assad, Hizbollah and Iran.

‘The resistance is Shia’. LOL. I was correct when i said a few days ago that this page is full of Shia sectarians. ‘Syrian not Arab’-Denying the Arab culture of Syria is a sure sign of Western or Iranian influence.

As for the Syrian army at Manbij this is highly doubtful especially since the army cannot even secure Al Bab. In fact its pure fantasy.

You should all bookmark this. Most Reported Deaths in Syria Have Not Been Committed By Assad Regime 51,212 civilian deaths reported by SOHR includes 24,275 rats As rats aren’t civilians or people, 26,937 humans died. As Assad killed the minority, Assad killed less than less than 13469 civilians. What does most mean in the English language? It means more than more doesn’t it? Let’s say 80% Therefore Assad killed 5387 civilians. I am guessing that Syria is normal country unlike Australia where home ownership and career comes ahead of family life. So women and children Therefore Assad killed 4310 women… Read more »

SOME NEWS TO MAKE YOU ALL SMILE!
Today, the Washington Post reported that 400 American drones simply “fell out of the sky,” at a cost of billions! These weren’t tiny hand launched model planes but, in most cases, Predators, Raptors or Global Hawks. Some were as large as airliners with highly classified payloads costing millions in surveillance gear.
Others we are told by sources at the upper levels of Pentagon command, crashed because they were overloaded with drugs from Afghanistan!!!! http://journal-neo.org/2014/06/26/bungler-central-america-s-secret-spy-base/

IS this some kind of propaganda story again (sigh) of another SAA advance that didn’t really happen? I really hate ISIS terrorists and would love to believe the SAA jumped 20K of terrorist controlled territory to threaten ISIS’s Manbij. I love the truth more so I just can’t buy it. Just yesterday ISIS kidnapped 140 Kurdish schoolboys and took them to their stronghold on Manbij? This doesn’t sound like a city threatened or surrounded? Regardless, it would be great news if this story which seems like another round of Assad style propaganda was in fact real.

in a maliki interview he is reporting Russia and Belarus will supply used combat planes ready to fly to IRAQ.
he also blame Obama for taking so long to deliver the planes he bought but not yet delivered to them ,that had Obama supplied planes to IRAQ on time ,he could have stopped ISIL invasion.. How clever Obama to delay the planes. ? LOL Is there is any doubt Obama do not want the ISIL fighters to be hardly beaten?

Dear Ziad… I have seen the Mahdi Army in action against the US Army. They were not too effective.
But if they use the same approach against ISIL, it would work quite well. It’s basically Sunni secterians
fighting against Shia secterians with WW1 tactics: massed assault and mass casualties. But there are
more crazy Shias in Iraq than ISIL idiots.

PS: no offence against Shia crazies, as long as they don’t work against Russian interests 😉

I agree with that. And Iraq got 6 new Russian jets or is getting them now. But what good are jets against ISIL without recon? They are only good at scaring away Turkish jets. I hope that is what they will indeed do. Here is my thinking: I have known Maliki and his ilk since the later years of the Iraq War. Maliki is basically a much bigger Yanukovich, he is the very definition of an lawful evil character. But in this case this evil has allied itself with a side that is a key partner to Russia. That side… Read more »
