SYRIAN ARMY DIVISION 17 KILLS 520 ISIS SAVAGES IN SPECTACULAR DEFENSIVE OPERATION!

ش11111

 

AL-RAQQA:

High ranking Ba’ath Party sources have confirmed the successful repelling of over 6 full-frontal attacks on a regiment of the SAA Division 17 in Al-Raqqa Province.  This division is huge and extends over a vast area of the province with over 18,000 enlisted men and officers backed by the very best equipment Syria possesses, not to mention full air supremacy.

 

Warning to all readers:  As you know, ISIS is being helped by American, British (read: BBC) and Zionist psyops experts in presenting its narrative of victory to a naive audience of rat supporters and derelicts – essentially people who wouldn’t have known that paper comes from wood.  Be careful, and look at the source of the information before you regale me with any nonsense in the comment section.  Because, here is the absolute truth:

 

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=73f_1383566346

 

Division 17 has sustained 6 suicide bombings, during the last 2 weeks,  in trucks no different than those used on the Aleppo Central Prison.  The ISIS group now has hundreds of members of Nusra who defected and are advising their new organization regarding better tactics.  The trucks, for example, are uniformly armor-plated to deflect anti-tank rockets before the truck reaches its target. THEY HAVE NOT WORKED.

 

Yesterday, SAA forward units backed by snipers, scouts and roving anti-tank weapons specialists blocked 2 separate attempts to breach the regiment’s perimeter which is a wall with rows of bagged-dirt fortifications.  The first truck approached the regiment and was destroyed by a simultaneous “perfect storm” of Kornet rockets that almost vaporized the contraption.  When that effort failed, the ISIS rodents tried a second truck which was able to approach the perimeter, but, was rendered into molten dross at a safe distance.  In both instances, the drivers were atomized, their existence rendered meaningless by this act of pure nihilism.

 

The Syrian High Command  has issued a warning to all those who pay attention to the humbuggery of the Western media:  Division 17 has redeployed its forces only because of an intent to strengthen its defensive capabilities.  ISIS has deliberately tried to depict its attacks on some abandoned strong-points, once operated by the SAA, as victories.  Do not believe any of this.  The strong-points were intentionally abandoned in order to protect SAA soldiers and are part of normal redeployments of troops according to well-established norms in military science.

 

SYRPER CAN CONFIRM THAT THE LAST FAILED ATTEMPTS BY ISIS TO OVERRUN ONE REGIMENT OF THE DIVISION 17 HAS RESULTED IN A COUNT OF 520 DEAD RATS.  This includes the complete destruction of 3 convoys loaded with weapons from Iraq including 16 pickup trucks with 23mm cannons.  The SAAF was primarily responsible for isolating the convoys and unleashing a pitiless storm of air-to-ground missiles from Sukhoi and MiG bombers and Hind helicopter gunships.  Their carcasses are now rotting like carrion in the dry wind.

 

Readers are also advised to begin the vigil before the liberation of Al-Raqqa.  It should be obvious that the failed American plan to hold on to Al-Raqqa is what is motivating these suicidal attacks on Division 17 which will lead the thrust to liberate the city.

_______________________________________________________________

AL-HASAKA:

Also, just in, the SAA has repelled an attack by ISIS on Al-Hasaka forcing the terrorists to withdraw more than 15kms south of the city.  The attack by hundreds of ISIS rodents was led by none other than Abu ‘Umar Al-Shishaani, whose life on this earth is now being measured by sand particles.

A few months ago we were all treated to the video that emerged of a long line of some 200 trolls being ambushed by one almighty explosion, followed by the sound of machine gun fire. Somewhere around Damascus I believe.

Without wishing to sound like a pervert who gets his jollies off watching death and destruction, have there been any other releases such as this since then which show similar spectacular losses being inflicted on the terrorists?

Dear Ziad,

Where are the pictures coming from from ISIS inside the base? There are literally dozens of pictures and videos of militants from inside the base capturing weapons and ammunition…
Also dozens of soldiers (incl the commanding officer) being beheaded by ISIS, how is that possible?

Please explain I’m very worried you are full of BULLSHIT, you should go and see your local doctor very soon!

What useful purpose is there for keeping SAA in Raqqa and Deir Zour. Would it not be better to withdraw these troops and use them in more vital sites such as Hama, Idlib , Lattakia, Ghouta. There will be time later to take back these peripheral areas.

Raqqah and Deir ez Zor are both road nexus and river crossings, with bridging suitable for heavy traffic. The other places you mentioned are being liberated, one village, hamlet and town at a time. Don’t worry. With Raqqah and ez Zor liberated, ISIS in Syria will be, essentially, cut in two, the halves separated by the river.

agree,
division 17 is surrounded and have no airport, so it can be supplied only by airdrops, which are very ineffective. Surrounded and relatively small areas without loyal population (it is not areas like Nubol and Zahraa or Fuaa and Kafraya) can be evenually captured, if rats can muster enough forces to sacrifice to get such a rather symbolical victory….. remember Taftanaz, Meng….

They are not 100% surrounded
brigade 93,division 17 bases are under HEAVY siege but ISIS is taking HEAVY casualties
Both FSA and ISIS tried to take down these bases several times but were unsuccessful
SAA has several air bases and air ports in the area allowing 24 hour air support and thanks to russian and iranian support

You speak about hundreds of dead IS-rats (I really hope you are right about that). No casualties among the SAA? The IS-thugs captured a number of SAA soldiers and beheaded them. It was all filmed like they always do. Some say a brigadier general is among the death. Please provide us a list of the defenders who heroically died. Is the base still under attack?

@L Division 17 is always under attack, about to be attacked, just been attacked. Don’t pay any attention to the trolls on social media or MSM – – they’re full of it. SANA and SyrPer give you the straight skinney. It’s normal practice to hold back casualty lists pending notification of next of kin, and sometimes way past that time. If you have a troop stationed at 17, you’d probably get quicker results if you call a relative who would have news.

I would like to add to the readers who think Base 93 (north of Raqqa)/17(near Raqqa), Tabqua (near Tabqua dam), Qwers (Aleppo governorate) and/or Deir Ezzor are not important to rethink. Yes it is a hazard operation to deliver them supplies but there strategic impact is huge. In the first place they keep thousands of your enemy soldiers away from other fronts (much more then the amount of soldiers you need to defend the facility). Second, defending a facility (without an enemy air force) is much easier then overrunning a fortification of dug in battle hardened fighters. Third, and i… Read more »

Your map is valid,it shows Raqqa base seen from north, in 2013, they almost captured it, SAA was not very effective there – they however got repelled bu 3 (three) gunships, so they broke off and left. Without those helicopters…
No idea about what the numbers were then, as compared to now.
Nor if they now have those sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles the Yanks keep sending their brave mercenaries… I hope not, but it wouldn’t surprise me (Iraq).
In Ukraine, Separatists shot down two fighter lanes with “man pads” yesterday.
Easy. That may be a big problem.

Okay, so far it looks to me like maybe a company or less was lost in an operation where it got more or less ambushed, and that the front lines are being “simplified” – that’s to be expected. ISIS wants this victory badly, so they hope to break in with a massive assault, hoping to demoralize the army. On the other hand, how demoralized must I be to surrender and be beheaded ? If managed well, this is an opportunity to drain the bastards nicely, ISIS is likely too confident from the milk run they had in Iraq, where they… Read more »

It is true, brigade 17 has fallen in the hands of the bloodthirsty state of terror. All SAA elements are regrouped in the other part of the military complex. There are pics all over the internet of IS-thugs inside parts of the base. From what I’ve read there are only 900 soldiers in the base, including specials ops.

Okay, a few thousand rats with a death wish may be able to dislodge a regiment of infantry.
Also, the 17k members of 17 Div are certainly not all of them infantrymen.

But still, this doesn’t add up insofar as there’s about 16k personnel missing from the picture,
and why would they hike it to brigade 93 when the base was the best fortified thing around ?

It may be called the 17 division, but that was pre-war period. Many soldiers were used to reinforce other fronts and indeed, not all are infantrymen, some are spec ops (or most of them – idk). Fact remains that the huge base was breached during the IS assault, with many conflicting reports as result. Time will tell, but it doesn’t look pretty…

I sometimes read “base 17”, sometimes “division 17”.

So I googled it, and what I saw were the heads of about a half dozen soldiers, IF they were soldiers. Nothing else. As prolific as ISIS are around twitter etc, they would have shown more heads, captured weapons and a few higher officers (dead AND alive) if they had succeeded.
Sorry folks, not plausible.

The kiddos who say this is “apparently inside the base have seen what I saw.
They are obviously inside some derelict buildings, which may or may not be inside the base,
or a factory building, or the Raqqa city slums.

My two cents: – There are no 18000 SAA men in Base 17. At best 1000 – The base is not overrun but ISIS might have taken parts of it. At least for a couple of hours, enough time to make the usual 5 minute victory videos. Nothing new – SAA has not killed 500+ ISIS – ISIS has not killed 100s of SAA, otherwise they would have shown much more corpses – Sorry to say, but I think ISIS´ waging war on SAA might reverse many hardly achieved success of the last 12 months.

ISIS seems to choose targets which are already under pressure or which are valueable and a bit off geographicaly in Syria which is quite smart. Maybe this Homs Oil Field attack was to bind troops so they cannot move towards Raqqah. They must have their weakpoints as they are pretty outstreached at the moment with multiple fronts against rebel/terrorists, Kurds and the SAA. I hope there are plans to take the initiative again in the next weeks. The best way would be to hit them where it hurts and take the city of Raqqah away from them. This would be… Read more »

Given enough resources, ISIS would be easy to (almost) destroy – you are right, they must be overstretched but then they have loads of new recruits and money. However their weak point should be discipline (fanaticism makes up for that). There are a majority of desperate losers in their ranks, but also fearless kamikazes. On the other hand, Wellington’s army on the Iberian Campaign was made up from desperate losers. and they scored only victories against Napoleon’s draftees – just as an example.

Two reasons why they are on the attack towards the west: – they won the battle in Deir ez-Zor against the FreeShitArmy, NusRat, IF and whatnot.

This officers mess was recaptured from rebels (not ISIS btw) 6 month ago. So i do doubt there are still 18k soldiers there. More i expect several 100’s.

Sounds reasonable. I watched a few videos from both sides and the war is a lot hit and run, trying to outmanoeuver, sometimes small groups of troops get cut off, a few guys – then they may run out of ammo, which is probably the only reason they surrender anyway.

Again there were at least 2 German djihadists involved in this particular attack- as a German I am very dissapointed that those djihadists groups still can be active in Germany collecting funds and that the German parliament approved that taxpayers money was used to send medical supply and communication equipment to “rebels”, starting in 2011. Now they don’t distance themselves, they don’t condemn what is happening. They even sent German soldiers to the Turkish border of Syria. And this is coordinated of course with EU and NATO. Of course they have responsibility when the djihadists will be active in western… Read more »

I see many persons here discounting ISIL/IS as some bunch of crazed Jihadist, maybe the foot soldiers are, but their commanders are seasoned fighters, backed by ZNATO with intelligence, battle tactics. It has been known that Russia has many cases held off supplying SAA with intelligence, the main battle commanders are mercenary Chechens, for this the RF should supply all the intelligence after all most of the are RF citizens.

Sources say that ISIS have around 10000-15000 Fighters (in Syria and Irak). Al Nusra may have around 7000 Fighters. Please tell me why the syrian military Command place such Troops so sinnless. Please tell me why the Commanders give the Terrorist Gates around Salma/Latakia or around Zabadani and so on.. Even the Tactic in the South is difficult to understand. At the Time nothing goes forward – even in Aleppo (a short Time there was a great Hope). I hope the syrian Army will win against the West/Zionist sponserd Takfiri (Libyia, Syria, Irak, Gaza, Ukrain – ist all from the… Read more »

So just like you all know by now. The SAA has retreated from Division 17 to Division 93 and some are still in the area north of the base. The IS-thugs are in control of the huge complex. It’s a shame. This article can be closed, because it didn’t happen like Ziad told us. The truth would be nice for a moment.

Recommend you go through the last two days of inputs from syria360, I always found it quite reliable on its comments and facts, like Ziad, they also rely on a mix of local sources and official SANA news. Take your on conclusion of Division 17, it seems all we have read from Ziad and other syrper folks as correct, redeployment inside the large base to better defensive post but clearly something is being cooking there related to an attack to Raqqa, I wonder whether soldiers and heavy weapon were channeled there by air to support a quick attack to Raqqa.… Read more »

If you want to believe what a wordpress page has to say, be my guest. Meanwhile it’s getting more and more clear that this redeployment was an organised retreat from the base. Div 17 was breached, they didn’t want an Iraqi situation so it was the best choice to leave the place. The casualties among the Army ranks are relatively low (60-70+) because of this decision, hundreds made it alive to the government-held enclave outside the base. There are no reports about how many IS-scumbags were killed during the attack, but they probably paid a high price due to the… Read more »

My dear friend, the war on sources is the one fought hard isn’t it ? Official reports from SANA or close to SANA, social media etc….Right now all i can say is that i can not back what i am saying neither you. Until a video or a photo with a long column of SAA retreating to brigade 93 is shown with confirmation by SANA, then i think we have a stalemate. Division 17 has been under attack for 2 yrs, seceral times it was breached, the base it self is a WWI style full of trenches and sandbags. I… Read more »

This big confrontation between the SAA and IS has been coming for a long time, a lot of unverified reports so far but the picture will be clearer in a few days.

Best wishes to SAA

Just a note – a well organized retreat is by no means a defeat. Letting ISIS spread themselves out too thin leaves them more exposed to predation by other species of rat as well as a larger, more prepared SAA force. Clearly the previous estimates of the numbers of IS foot soldiers is underestimated. With control of a large metropolitan area like Mosul, no doubt they gained thousands of new troops. These guys aren’t a ragtag bunch of rats like Nusra anymore, they’re organized and they’re using advanced martial tactics. The time to confront them is now, before they start… Read more »

Wonderful news.

And a little note…

Please do not think that our corrupt leaders, military, etc. have anything to do with the American population at large.

Our country was founded on fighting tyrany.

No it wasn’t anon. It was founded on genocide of the native american peoples, constantly breaking treaties and illuminati trickery. There are many great people in the US but they are a small minority in a pop. over 300M . 57% of Americans approve of the slaughter in Gaza according to MSM poles (not that I believe the figures, just stating what is being offered by your zio controlled media). Ask yourself why zero celebrities of US origin comment against the zio attack on Palestine? They are under orders from Hollywood. Who are hollywood?

US were founded cause a few rich guys thought instead of paying taxes to the British king, they might as well pay them to themselves. But then, they needed the smallfolk to fight their war, so they invented a fairy story of a thing called “freedom”, and the smallfolk went for it like a pig goes for garbage. Hail Murrica !

Ziad, your moving into an area of full blown comedy. This might be a new path to get viewers in the millions like me looking for a fun break from work, you can make some serious cash pushing online T-shirts and mugs. So I say, “go with it”, start reporting ISIS was defeated everywhere and fleeing Syria, etc. Begging for mercy, the fight was so easy recruits are getting early time off, paid vacations, etc.

Here goes more media news on Division 17, this one states clearly it was not taken by ISIS though there is still fight and it reports KIA for SAA soldiers and the misterious retreat and advance maneuver, which is not clear enough. Enjoy it.

Ziotrolls are scattered in panic. Is true. They lost hundreds of monkeyist from Qatarland, on the grounds. They got the oilfields al-Shair? Well, ziotrolls and islamist’s count cheerleaders have showed only corpses of someones, takes when and where? There any photos about oilfieds structures in the grabs of the islamist-boytoy? The same narrative on Raqa, they shows beheaded corpses, the same who appears on photos and pictures I saw months ago; they documentating a massacre in Latakia province. Only MI6’s voice (SOHR, al-Sharq Awsat, etc.) are on the basis of ‘victories’ of the must mediatized islamist-terrorist group, the Mossad-NATO’s kid… Read more »
