NUSRA CRUSHED IN IDLIB; RAT SITUATION HOPELESS

الجيش السوري يستعيد آبار نفط وغاز في ريف تدمر من المسلحين

Using new techniques and weapons, the Syrian Army appears unstoppable.  While I write this post, I have been told that units of the SAA are on their way to liberate Al-Raqqa.  I have written about this before, months ago, in fact, when a whole mechanized armored division was on its way to Al-Raqqa for the final battle only to be delayed and then diverted back to Aleppo to handle some Nusra campaign designed to keep the ISIS infestation in the spent and hapless eastern city.  With newly inaugurated units and militias now reaching 200,000 men and women, we have the manpower to accomplish all this.

Al-Salmaaniyya:  A unit of the SAA fought a battle with Nusra rodents and killed 3 while taking 8 prisoners.  The rats are becoming increasingly sloppy as most of their leaders either die, get captured or move to Australia.  The remant yokels are hardly capable of fighting a professional army like Syria’s.

 

Abu Al-Dhuhoor near the airbase:  There are a few hundred rodents left here and their numbers are quickly dropping due to defections and territorial disputes.  The siege of the base is over.  Now, the SAA is on the offensive.  Yesterday, a pack of rodents was annihilated as it carried a mother lode of weapons westward in a convoy of vans.  The area is still being assessed as I write.

 

East Sarja:  A nest of Al-Qaeda vultures was invaded by SAA and PDC (formerly NDF) and 10 of the terrorists were killed:

Yunus Mahmoud Sirhaan

Jalaal Zaki Muhammad

Hammood Shukri Al-Saafi

The other 7 were foreigners, 3 from Uzbekistan and 4 others from Chechnya.

 

Ma’arrat-Masreen:  This town has gone from one side to the other for the last 2 years.  The people want to be rid of American machinations and the scourge of Zionist-inspired Jihadism.  Yesterday, they came closer to riddance from the prehistoric savages belonging to Nusra when the SAA pushed into an area where the rats had stored ammunition underground and killed 23.  No names available.

 

Al-Raami in the Areehaa area:  A studied and perfectly executed attack on Nusra resulted in 4 rats taking the dumb waiter down to Mephisto’s Massage Parlor.  No names.

 

More fighting reported here:  Tal Salmu, Talab, ‘Ayn Al-Baarida, Al-Jaanoodiyya in the Jisr Al-Shughoor area.

Ali, that is a good point, not sure why Al Raqqa has been pulled on the priority list, but it could be part of a macro strategy to spread thin even further ISIS through Syria. Lets keep in mind ISIS is very busy in several fronts, Kobane, Der Ez Zor, Al Shaer mountains, Hasaka and most recently some skirmishes in Aleppo NE, so it may be a decoy again by the SAA or a new front to spread them thinner. Time will tell.

Canthama: It looks like Raqqah and Deir ez Zor are choke points for ISIS. If either one of the two, preferably both, can be liberated and held, ISIS is in a real bind as far as transport routes go. Good hunting to the Syrian military and volunteers, good luck, and best wishes going forward.

I think that ISIS will look to a lot of other enemies. The first is to be disposed of those who receive support from the USA. USA then they will not have anyone who could invade Syria. The defeat of ISIS to the end. The disposal of Al-Nusra and others is not much time.

Apparently Peshmerga has a setup where the rotate veterans out of Kobani as fresh troops in number equal to the original contingent are sent in. No mention in the article that YPG and YPJ carried the fight since September, and replacements are not available for them. At least not officially. Good luck to them all, good hunting, and best wishes going forward.

And… I really don’t know what is worse, full of dramatic element crimes of ISIS\FSA (beheadings, heart-eating, shooting random people on a highway), or such routine and calculated murders? They really remind me nazi’s with their cold blooded calculated industry of death camps.

Your take on this thought please, is there a difference between this two types of dehumanised creatures?

Don’t forget that Syrian perspective is a propaganda site for the SAA and the friends of the SAA. In a propaganda war you only notice your victories, not your losses.
In our mainstream media you only find the victories of IS and never the losses (this is for us a signal that IS is the friend of our bilderberg runned governments / media by the way). That is just the way propaganda works…

According to Strelkov and another famous leader, the fighters in Donbass have rare courage and initiative which helps a lot against the demoralised Ukrainian soldiers. We know full well they are demoralised. He describes the pro Russian’s circumstances as beyond what most people could endure. By that metric I guess the SAA are probably in a better situation. By now they would be more experienced than most. It took them quite some time too remember?

While it is important event, Iran always said that if ISIL/ISIS approached within 100KM of its borders, it would take action, this was a test of Iran’s resolve, i don’t think an attempt will be made again. The niceties with ZNATO are gone, the failed talks are history. Iran now openly admits it is providing logistics, missile technology and General Command Staff. The new weapons being used by the SAA in it’s current counter attacks are Iranian, Russia supplies the air coverage.

Canthama: This allegation comes from the Captagon, so I’d be taking it with a carload of salt. Iran categorically denies the allegations, and of the two I’d believe Iran before I’d consider the Pentagon accusation to be factual. The other side is that the US/coalition isn’t doing ISIS/ISIL any harm at all, preferring to kill Syrians and Iraqis, and destroy Syrian infrastructure, so any actual strikes on ISIS/ISIL is to the benefit of both Iraq and Syria (if only by extension).

I agree with you, Your Highness, and others. This is an excellent development. Before this, Iran’s actions in Iraq sent the message to the US: “you may control the skies but we have the boots on the ground.” Now, Iran can say that the USAF has no monopoly of the skies in the war against ISIS. That message could apply to Syria also in the event of an escalation and will help to deter the Turkish-Saudi ploy for a no-fly-zone. The Iraqi government is also sending this message: “thanks for the help but Iran is a more important ally to… Read more »
