Mount ‘Azzaan: Another laugh-inducing Turk-inspired effort to degrade the SAA’s anti-aircraft missile network went awry the night before last when a relatively large convoy of terrorists made an effort to storm the Mount ‘Azzaan AA missile base overlooking the Damascus-Aleppo International Highway. This base contains S-300 AA batteries. What goes on in Erdoghani Turk minds can only be known to zoologists because even the slipshod idiots at Hakan Fidan’s MIT don’t seem to know themselves.
The attack was clearly a part of Turkey’s failed tactics to denigrate missile capacity in order to establish a no-fly zone of some kind. As the sun arose, Wael says his first cousin, who is deployed with the SAA at the site, told him that the extent of the disaster became really known only when silhouettes of carcasses appeared in large numbers. The count yesterday was 171 which was based on anecdotal reporting. That number has been reduced now to 137. The actual number of wounded is not available. Interestingly, the mothers of Chechnya will be forlorn because many of the carcasses carried Russian-language papers and bore phenotypes similar to males of the Caucasus.
The groups which sent this pile of cannon-fodder into Hell were the Nusra, Ahraar Al-Shaam, Kateebat Al–Muhaajireen, Jabhat Al-Islam and Ghurfat ‘Amaliyyaat Ahl Al-Shaam (Operations Room of the People of Syria. Oh, Yawn!)
Tal Qurraah: More dead carcasses strewn about the landscape gave evidence of increasing desperation on the part of the terrorists of Nusra. Here the vermin attacked a convoy of SAA and the convoy attacked back. The number of dead terrorists is only an estimate at 19 or more.
Fighting continues to intensify as part of Operation Canopus Star (‘Amaliyyat Al-Suhayl) all over Aleppo as we now are hearing of clashes at the border with Turkey:

And now, more laughs from Penny, with Obama as the foil. NOTE THAT LAKHDAR BRAHIMI just revealed that it was the terrorists who used CW in Khaan Al-‘Asal:
