OBAMA’S SOUTHERN FRONT A FLOP; DAYR EL-ZOR CEMETERY FOR SAUDI TERRORISTS

1

DAYR EL-ZOR:

 

Jabal Al-Tharda:  ISIS tried to occupy several positions in this area to give itself greater control over oil facilities and to have direct access to Palmyra (Tadmur).  It was a complete failure.  According to Monzer, the situation for ISIS terrorists is now hopeless as they managed to sustain huge losses here while isolating whole packs of their mostly foreign killers in indefensible salients.  The SAA is now cleaning up and the carcasses are slowly rotting in the open.  Over 47 terrorists have been counted dead.

 

Al-Bughayliyya:  This village in the western part of the province was just liberated 2 days ago and became the springboard for a spectacular operation at the Abu Dhuhoor AB (see today’s first post).  This village lies a few kilometers from the Agricultural College which was targeted by ISIS terrorists.  The SAA blocked that effort killing 11 terrorists and, then, turning back to Al-Bughayliyya where the criminals were not permitted to withdraw.  All 27 were killed and their 4 vehicles destroyed.  It was at that point that the regiments were ordered to rapidly redeploy at Abu Dhuhoor.   The only carcasses identified were these Syrian ones:

Mansoor Jaaber Al-Salmaan

Naasser Ahmad Al-Hammood

‘Abdul-Salaam Al-Mir’iy

Mu’aadh Khaalid Al-Muhammad

 

Al-Muree’iyya:  A group of terrorists was wiped out by SAA and tribal units with all weapons captured turned over to the Shu’aytaat for use in killing Wahhabist degenerates:

Badr Al-Shammari (SAUDI WEASEL FETUS)

 

Fighting reported in these areas:  Al-Jafra, Al-Sinaa’ah, Huwayjat Sakr, Al-Rushdiyya, Al-Jubayliyya, Al-Huwayqa, Al-Rusaafa, Al-‘Urfa.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

DER’AH:

عمليات-الجيش-العربي-السوري-1

CITY:  At the Transportation Quarter, the SAA conducted a precise operation killing an undisclosed number of terrorists.

 

South of the Consumers’ Institute:  Fighting with no details.

 

South of Busraa Square:  Monzer and Syrian news sites report major advances by the SAA with many terrorists killed.

 

 

‘Itmaan:  The group calling itself Liwaa` Al-Mu’tazz Billaah was wiped out along with its ally, the Jaysh Al-Yarmook.  Both these names involve historic personalities and events.  The first refers amazingly to the Abbasid Caliph who ruled for only 3 years and was the youngest of all caliphs at 19 years.  He was done in by everybody including his Turkish allies at Samara (Saamirraa` a contraction of “Surra man ra`aa.  It means “he who looks upon it is made happy”).  That this group would take on the name of this miserably inept leader whose cruelty toward his own brothers rivaled those of Ottoman Sultans is shocking.

In the case of the second group, the name refers to the Yarmouk River, a scene of the monumental triumph of the genius general,  Khaalid Ibn Al-Waleed, whose defeat of Heracles’ army under the command of the Byzantine general Vahan in 636 C.E. is touted as one of the landmark victories in human history.  Khaalid was considered by H.G. Wells to be the greatest military mind which ever existed.  Now, knowing that, why would anyone imply a connection to this brilliant military leader?  Especially after being rendered almost extinct.   By the way, both groups are offshoots of Nusra.

 

Itmaan:  Here it was a group called “Alwiyat Sayf Al-Shaam” (Brigades of the Sword of Syria, yawn).  They fought at Al-Manaashir northeast of Al-Ghuzlaan Farms, north of the Water Cistern, the Green Mosque.  All for nothing.  They, too, appear headed for complete erosion.

 

‘Itmaan:  North of the buildings on the railroad tracks, the SAA fought the Liwaa` Tawheed Kataa`ib Al-Hawraan (The Brigade of Unification of the Battalions of Hawraan), Harakat Sadaqa Wa’dahu (The He Kept his Promise Movement), Kateebat Ahraar Al-Jawlaan.  For Pete’s sake, is there anybody with half a brain among these nincompoops?

 

Fighting intense here:  Al-Nu’ayma, Ibta’, Zimreen, Inkhil, Al-Lijaat

 

City at Al-‘Abbaasiyya Cemetery:  3 mortar launchers destroyed and 1 Hell Rocket launcher siezed.

 

City: East of the Electric Company in Al-Manshiyya Quarter, there was some skirmishing.

Tariq, even the Guardian has to allow that reality trumps the wishful thinking of its editorial writers. From the article you cite:

‘Saudi Arabia has been widely blamed for the rise of Isis by funding armed Islamist groups fighting to overthrow Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, while several thousand of its nationals have fought in Syria and Iraq, many encouraged by extremist clerics.”

Enough said. The Saudi gerontocracy is, literally, on the way out and their foreign policies are going with them.

“The shame falls upon the ratbastards who dreamed all this up and set it in motion…”

And who are these rat-bastards? The US, Israel, France and UK, have been trying to destroy Syria for decades. Nothing new there.

What is new is that some Arab states thought that they could capitalise on the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ to destroy Syria,
break up the arc of resistance and destroy Iranian influence in the region. They failed.

The greatest shame does not lie upon America and the West. It lies upon all those Arabs who betrayed their own people for a sectarian cause.

Nothing can all be laid off on any group, however tempting it may be do do so, if that group is the predominant one engaging in any particular activity.

Well, you know, the shame lies with the religion that made these people what they are. Or not so much religion in and of it self, but how the people around them practiced it, how they where misdirected by family, imam’s or online directives. There are many ways to seek misguidance in our day and age.

If you look at it from a different perspective, the west stands to gain from this migration southwards. One less extremist muslim in my country, is one likely dead extremist Syria.

Whether recruites join the SAA or the NDF makes no difference because both are fighting rats. The fact that 70% of the syrian population lives under SAA control, means that there should be enough men to recruit into the the army and into the NDF.
I also think that since NDF is volunteer force, it draws its recrutes from a slightly different pool, with regard to age and religious affiliiation and other differences. I think that many of those drafted in the army, would not have volunteered into the NDF. Therefore calling the reserves would not necessarily significanly influence NDF recruitment.

Why would the US bomb IS?

They equipped ISIS and they prevented Maliki from fighting IS.
The US didn’t just tolerate IS, they created them.

And on the other hand no wanna-be dictator is created there, yet. Why?
In Egypt a puppet was installed, in Libya a guy from Virginia wants to be the countries torturer with US support and in Ukraine an American investment banker (imagine that!) is finance minister.
No “saviour” from the dangers they created is in sight in Syria/Iraq.

“In Egypt a puppet was installed”

Nope. Morsi was the elected President and the US supported him. Then Morsi arrogated powers to himself that the constitution did not allow. The people revolted. The military, led by Sisi, supported the people. There was an election. Sisi won with a huge majority.

The US administration was not at all pleased but they had to accept the fact that Egyptians did not want an Erdogan type dictatorship. Egypt wins. Democracy wins. The western media loses.

If you really think about it the rebels/invaders consist of really only one group, IS. Two groups control all the rebels in Syria with a few exceptions. In West/South Syria they fall under Nusra’s control and the rebel groups in East Syria have been integrated into IS’s absolute control. With Nusra drifting back into the IS camp every rebel group is supporting IS directly or indirectly as Nusra’s eventual reunion appears inevitable.

I have a hard time getting my head around the apparent advance of IF around Manaasher and Al-Bureijj, especially as they do not have significant armor capability. Fadel’s report has me quite confused.

We all know SAA has the capability to close the 1-2 kilometer gap and surround rebel Aleppo quit easily. The SAAF could easily blast one square kilometer to pieces. There is a clear strategy and reason why they are not doing it. I’m dying for some real inside information why? Maybe its because they don’t want to invest the scarce manpower in keeping it closed with IS just 5 Kilometers away? Maybe they want to keep the Northern Islamists solvent and fighting IS for a few more months to prevent them from joining them? Or possibly even some backroom international… Read more »

Anon: So long as the rats have what they think is an escape route, they won’t get an Alamo outlook, and some will insist upon getting out as opportunity appears to present itself. Between SAA, NDF and Hizbollah even if the rats do get out of Aleppo, there is almost no chance that they will survive to reach friendly territory. Don’t worry, SAA has ISIS faded.

Your comment exhibits a confused mind. If you had said, “Is any commenter on this site actually Syrian”?, then that would have been an intelligent question to which the answer is “yes”.

This photo has little to do with Syria, but it shows people can cross barriers, may one day Syrians sons can re unite themselves in peace.

“Sons of soldiers killed during the Iran-Iraq war recreate their fathers’ battlefield photo”.

The article below has good inputs on the dynamics of oil prices, cost, US fraking and some geopolitics, one may not agree with it all but it has some good data.

As Christianity Exits Europe, ‘Criminal Muslims’ Fill Void with Rabid Violence http://www.christianpost.com/news/as-christianity-exits-europe-criminal-muslims-fill-void-with-rabid-violence-132073/ History provides ample evidence of ways in which the local church provides continuity, encouragement and support of family life and societal freedoms. It also reveals what happens when churches close: societal structures erode, crime escalates, and freedoms evaporate. Throughout Europe, tens of thousands of churches have been torn down, sold and repurposed due to an 80-90 percent drop in attendance. Non-attendance is indicative of negative population growth and sub-replacement fertility rates. And negative population growth is indicative of empty pulpits. Heterosexual marriage and procreation cannot be forced. But… Read more »

Anonymous, (whoever you are) Europe is the most civilised area on this planet because most of it has evolved beyond religion and superstition. Europeans in general respect science, learning and opposing views that are non-violent. People come to Europe from all over the world with their backward beliefs (as well as progressive ones) and some of them try to promote their reactionary views; they try to impose them upon the society as a whole. They will fail always, We Europeans know what this is all about. We have had our religious wars. We will not allow anybody to drag us… Read more »
