UPDATED BATTLE MAP OF KESSAB: COMPLETE LIBERATION

Lattakia map
This is the current situation in nothern Lattakia. The town of Kessab has been completely liberated by the SAA & NDF, supported by other paramilitias such as the SSNP and Syrian Resistance. Insurgents have retreated across the border to Turkey and skirmishes have moved eastwards. The internally displaced Armenian refugees of Kessab, who originally fled to the city of Lattakia, have begun to return. The terrorist occupation of this area is officially over and Kessab finally liberated.

Die Rückeroberung von Kessab ist eine gute Nachricht. Ich hoffe, dass genügend Ratten in die Hölle geschickt worden sind.

Hooray, great work SAA. What a good day for the Kessab Armenians – whom has suffered ENOUGH from the Turks now. Did any Armenian militia participate?

Iran Warns against Military Intervention in Iraq Local Editor Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh AfkhamIran warned on Sunday that “any foreign military intervention in Iraq” would only complicate the crisis, after the US said it was deploying a warship in the Gulf. “Iraq has the capacity and necessary preparations for the fight against terrorism and extremism,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham was Sunday quoted as saying by the ISNA news agency. “Any action that complicates the situation in Iraq is not in the interests of the country nor of the region,” Afkham said, adding, “The people and government of Iraq… Read more »

“The terrorist occupation of this area is officially over” — Wonderful! SAA can now go back to sleep now, because naughty Al-Nusra jihadis would never dare inofficially infiltrate the area again, seeing as they are such sticklers for the Baathist rule book, which explains how and why they firstly invaded the place a few months ago. Thanks to the wisdom of our Great Leader, Al-Bash Assad, we have gained this magnificent victory by jogging on the spot for 3 months! Praise Him!

Wonderful news. Erdogan’s Syria strategy was already in tatters but this development means that even he must now realise that interfering in Syrian affairs does not pay any dividends. It also closes the door on Turkey’s ambitions to be the leading regional power. That honour now falls to Iran.

Tks for the map, it is always great to see the progress of the mighty SAA against the NATO and its allies supported and funded terrorists. I really hope the SAA/NDF can release most of the extra soldiers to push toward Salma and clean all that upper corner from terrorists once and forever, and finally push toward Idlib. No rest to rats.

The Kessab disaster was the second campaign for the so-called ‘Liberation’ of the Coastal region. It was an even bigger screw-up than the first campaign in which hundreds of civilians were murdered and kidnapped from the villages south of Salma. The only military rationale for the Kessab campaign would be to create a diversion to force SAA troops and resources away from important fronts like Idlib and Aleppo. They did create a diversion but clearly it was not big enough to prevent the SAA from pursuing its objectives in any of the really important theatres. Therefore it was a failure.

While reading articles on Syria in the UK media and then the public comments section I see more and more people are coming round to supporting President Assad and the Syrian army in their heroic fight against the militant hordes, the attack on Kessab by Turkish aided mercenaries has only increased UK public support for an outright victory by the re-elected Syrian President and the SAA. It’s not only the morale of the terrorists that is sinking fast but also any lingering support the misnamed ‘rebels’ used to have from misled UK citizens. The UK government might still pander to… Read more »

Map Please? Chris, can you please make a map on which you would show the current situation in Syria and Iraq (on 1 map). Both countries are fighting the same enemy and in both countries affects the whole war against ISIS. Can you guys get some info on what is REALLY happening in Iraq and which areas are infested by rats. It would be really interesting to see WHERE are rats going over the (Syria – Iraq) border and how does they operate. For example the Al-Bukamal crossing is, supposedly, held by “FSA” sub species yet ISIS is obviously crossing… Read more »

Basically the Zionist are so desperate ,that now are trying to move to IRAQ and try to take that country first before any real push in Syria.. But what they have done is to give the middle east to IRAN on a silver plate. Now IRAN will legally with the permission of IRAQ will invade to help fight ISIS and will crush the terrorist and push them all the way to Turkey and will continue after that helping Syria to clean the eastern side of the country. NATO have helped IRAN more than anyone could ,because now IRAN Will have… Read more »

I wouldn’t be surprised if Erdogan ordered his mercenaries out of the area and struck a deal with Assad over ‘ISIL’. All of a sudden the Syrian air force is bombarding Raqqa and parts of Hasakeh on behalf of America, Turkey and others. ‘We made the mess, we’ll let you clean it up’. The suspicious role of the Syrian regime here is reminiscent of its participation as an ally of America in the first Gulf war by rescuing the ghastly Kuwait ruling clique from Saddam’s army, which then repaid Syria twenty odd years later by financing mercenaries to make war… Read more »

So on good note 49 Ukrainian soldiers went up in flames literally when their plane was taken out of the sky by “rebels”, payback for killing innocent civilians.

What about Deiz ez-Zor ? It looks like ISIL cuts off supply route for SAA units in the city because it looks like Al-Shulah and Babajeb viullages are under ISIL control. Is that true or wiki lies ?

Hope Salma will get liberated soon. Now that SAA has taken back Kessab there are no more threats coming from there and can push on two columnes on following the turkish border and on from south.

I never cease to read stories likes this one, this is how a country is made of, strong culture, heros, values and sense of duty for the homeland and camrades. Rest in Peace First-Lieutenant, Electronic engineer, Maihoub Mohammed Hatem, may your sacrifice help Syria to reach its place in the wolrd as a true fighter for freedom, the real home of the brave land of the free, God bless you and your family.

Great news on Kessab and good to hear of the return of inhabitants. Syria is ‘on a roll’ (while Erogdan will soon be on a shish-kebab).
Thanks Chris and goodnight from down under.

trolls are the viruses of internet communities:

Tip 1: Be strong. Don’t take it personally.

Tip 2: Be human, but present a unified front.

Tip 3: Let the haters hate.

Tip 4: Let them feel ignored as they have lack of friends.

Tip 5: Last but not least: you can not discuss with them as they are payed. this means they need your attention as a proove for their payroll.

Result: NEVER EVER REPLY TO TROLLS
