HOMS: GUARDS CAPTURE TERRORISTS TRYING TO BLOW UP NATURAL GAS FACILITIES

2

HOMS:

 

Al-Furuqlus (Not to be confused with Furulluq in Latakia):  Guards at the entrance to 2 Natural Gas Production Facilities here in the eastern province saw 2 rodents setting up to detonate a Hyundai truck loaded with canisters that were inconsistent with the types used at the station.  When the rodents ran from the truck, the guards warned all nearby to take shelter.  The truck exploded by remote control, but, luckily, nobody was seriously hurt.  The guards then pursued the terrorist vermin until they captured them:

‘Abdul-Kareem Farhaan Al-Khillaawi

Farhaan Hameed Al-Hajjaaj

They have been turned over to security and are warbling their lungs out.  I hope they relinquish them to Air Force Intelligence where their warblings will convert to arias.   8 people were rushed to clinics with minor injuries thanks to the alert guards.

Al-Wa’er:  It looks more and more like the rats are starving as they consistently try to escape into the orchards or cross Al-Khuraab Avenue separating this area from the rest of peaceful and secure Homs City.  Just today, they tried it again.  The group was Kataa`ib Al-Faarooq which the SAA wiped off the face of the earth.  No names.

 

Al-Rastan:  Nusra and Faylaq Homs took it on the chin here. No details. Event took place only a few hours ago.

 

Ayn Hussayn Village:  A warehouse with ammunition destroyed.

 

Start looking for big action by the SAA at Al-Sawma’ah, Rajm Al-Qassr, Umm Sahreej, ‘Unq Al-Hawaa. Reports of large-scale troop movements here.

 

Fighting reported in Talbeesa.

It seems as if the terrorists are probing for weaknesses in SAA defences in the Palmyra/Mount Al Shaa’er area rather than attempting any serious offensive at this stage (they have been trounced twice already there in the last half-year). The latest attacks are close to the city of Palmyra and seem to be more geared to cutting the SAA supply line from Palmyra to Deir Ezzor. They are in big trouble in Deir Ezzor. They desperately need a diversion to relieve their collapsing position there. Taking the Al-Shaa’er gas and oil fields – or the surrounding hills and mountains –… Read more »

Seems that militants have their hands untied to travel around the country, as they please. Authorities would be wise to impose some limitations on travel. Due to emergency taking place in the country, wouldn’t it be reasonable to “outlaw” trucks, pick-up trucks, vans, etc.?

More Sha’aitat local tribes mass graves found in Der Ez Zor Province (70 bodies), those findings could play very badly for ISIS if local tribes shift side entirely to support the Syrian Government.

Mindless terrorism – just like so many of us have talked about – that is all this is going to turn into. A protracted terror campaign. No vision, no plan, just a bunch of savages adrift with no rudder. ISIS seems to be imploding at this point – in fact they are the next domino to fall in the rolling collapse that arguably was started in earnest with the liberation of qusayer. Between making life for Syrians even more difficult, as well as these mass graves – They certainly won’t be winning any hearts and minds and moreover – it… Read more »

It looks like Kerry has hired his Egyptian slave, Sisi, whom he has recently ‘rehabilitated’ internationally to help out the Russians in putting pressure on Syria to agree to a ‘political transformation’. Now there are a whole host of foreign ministers right now singing along to the Yanki script of the ‘political solution’, aka regime change lite. These foreign ministers (US envoys) decry the ‘military solution’ and the ‘madness of the continuation of violence’, yet it is plainly obvious that there comments are targeted at the Syrian army in order to stop it in its tracks against the background of… Read more »

Only today, I saw on Live Leak Channel three trucks full of weapons that were intercepted by NDF and SAA. My immediate thoughts were: I wonder how many get through; and why don’t the authorities forbid truck usage for everyone else but the army?

Ozi-ozi-ozi !!!! Another one bites the dust! Go SAA! Sydney man Ahmad Mohamad al-Ghaz’zaoui (NOW THAT’S A GOOD AUSSIE NAME) was killed around Christmas Day while fighting in Syria for the Islamic State group. Syria 24, which states it is “pro-Assad” (NO, NEVER!) says Mr al-Ghaz’zaoui was killed after crossing over the Turkish border into Syria in late November (SHORT LIFE SPAN OF 4 WEEKS, LOL). Mr al-Ghaz’zaoui was originally from Bankstown in Sydney’s southwest (PICTURE SHOWS HIM ON A NIGHT OUT AT THE BANKSTOWN TROTS, LOL) He was also a Bulldogs supporter (LMOL).

Meanwhile, “the silent war” in Hasaka goes on with SAA, NDF, local militias and the Kurds working together, side by side as one army, Hasaka for me is a good example how different tribes, groups, religions can and should work together to face a common enemy. Yesterday this combine forces liberated ‪Tall Ahmad, this place sits between Tall Hamis and Tall Brak main road, the two strongholds for ISIS in NE Hasaka, it gives fire control over the road between them, thus creating a momentum for the Syrian and allied forces to start planning for Tall Hamis liberation, as mentioned… Read more »

The battle for the city of Sinjar, the capital of Sinjar region in Iraq, is on for few days now, it is said half of the city is on Kurd’s hands while the other half ISIS is putting all resources they have available, fierce fights daily. See video below, very nicely done in HD, with ISIS burning tires to block the airspace for jet attacks.
The delay in liberating Sinjar city is delaying the attack to Tal Afar, a must do for ISF/Peshmergas before going into Mosul.

One for the SyrPer centrefold.
Here’s a Sydneysider dingbat rumored to have stuck his surfboard in the garage, put the Valiant up on blocks, and headed Syria-wards, to live the jihadist life. Name — Ahmad Mohamad al-Ghaz’zaoui [al-Ghazzawi]. Fingered by Oz’s cheap imitation Thatcher, Julie Bishop, as an ISIS member, he departed this mortal coil around Christmastime, and should be ankle-deep upside-down in Beelzebubb’s boiling ordure by now.

While the terrorists in Palmyra are blowing up water facilities, the SAA in Aleppo is restoring water and electricity supplies to the people. From almasdarnews: “As a result of the Syrian Arab Army’s success in the Aleppo Governorate, water and electricity has been restored to most neighborhoods in the provincial capital for the first time since early 2014. According to a civilian source inside Aleppo City, there are still some districts that are without both water and electricity, but engineers are working to repair the flow of both to civilian homes.” That is why the Syrian government and army are… Read more »

Shinaydeen: Syrian utilities seem to be right on top of service restoration when a liberated area is safe enough for the crews to work. Ministry of Industry is also right on top of things, getting factories and other businesses up and running as quickly as possible. A defeated country could not move forward with such vigor. Three cheers and a tiger.

It seems that even the leaders of Belarus and Kazakhstan, two countries which make up the so called ‘Customs Union’, are not bothering to apply the Russian bans on European food products entering the Customs Union. LOL. These two country’s leaders are undoubtedly well aware that the days of Putin are numbered therefore they can afford to play hardball with him, and in Lukashenka’s case this is just desserts for Putin’s role along with his oligarchic cronies and Western ‘partners’ in the attempted colour revolution against him back in 2010.

Bogdanov just can’t leave the Syrian ambassador to Russia alone, once again he meets the ambassador to ‘discuss urgent preparations for dialogue in Moscow’, again this reveals the desperation of Putin in pressuring Syrian officials to attend and observe any possible outcomes of the regime change lite conference in Moscow. Putin needs to placate his masters in Washington in some way so as to ease the squeeze being put on his finances, he sees the best way of doing this as offering Syria up on a silver platter. The problem for Putin is that Washington wants results and concrete outcomes… Read more »

Of 1800 warplanes, 1200 are in dire need of repair or upgrade, of 1223 airfields today there remains only 120, of 1600 runways only 60 are left. In air defense, there are huge “hole”. No air cover the most important economic centers: Perm, Izhevsk, Vladimir, Nizhny Novgorod, Omsk, Chelyabinsk, Tula, Ulyanovsk. Only in recent years, the ship of the fleet has decreased by 60%.

Was sharing the other day that ISIS forces were amassing forces near Jabbul in east Aleppo to open up a new front toward Safirah and its important military industrial facilities. It happened but the SAA/NDF were ready(see Leith’s article), may this event create a momentum for the SAA to push the boundaries of frontline toward Kuwereis airbase and Dayr Hafir.

I appreciate your analysis. What you call “coalition of the killing” has taken over northern Iraq in 2014 and we see now a strict division of labour between the aformentioned and “NF/ISIS” terrorists which is the reason for their spreading to nearly every part of Syria and them functioning as a ground force in Syria. So with Aleppo and Hama/Homs in the grip it is vital to cut supply routes coming from northern Iraq around Hasakah and to take especially a close look on the Damascus-Bagdad-Highway which runs through Anbar province. Anbar province must be seen as their would-be entry… Read more »
