THE WALLS OF JERICHO TUMBLE DOWN; WHY THE SYRIAN ARMY WITHDREW FROM AREEHAA; WHAT IS TEHERAN DOING ABOUT IT?

  مصدر عسكري: الجيش ينسحب إلى خطوط دفاعية بمحيط مدينة اريحا بريف ادلب

Areehaa is Jericho in Arabic.  It fell to the Turk-supported vultures yesterday after very heavy fighting.  I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE, AND I WILL SAY IT AGAIN NOW: WE ARE AT WAR WITH TURKEY, SAUDI ARABIA, QATAR AND JORDAN.  There can be no beating around the bush.  Syria is even at war with Britain’s ruling junta, the French criminal regime and the United States which is led by the world’s most sinister war criminal – the half-breed fraud, Obama.  Russia has sent a Parliamentary delegation to Damascus to reassure Syria of Moscow’s deep commitment to the security and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic emphasizing growing technological cooperation between the two sovereign nations.  SyrPer can confirm that a record number of ships and cargo planes from Russia have been both docking and landing in Syria’s coastal zones.  They are not carrying bottles of vodka.

Turkey planned this operation for weeks.  Syria has used drones to monitor the concentration of terrorist forces mostly in the area of Turk-occupied Iskenderoun.  One drone was shot down by the miserable Turks when it encroached on to their territory last week.  The SAA knew of the assault on the northwest part of Idlib Province.  The only surprise was the vast number of rodents used to accomplish the assault.  The came from both Turkey and Idlib.  Their efforts to collect rodents from Jisr Al-Shughoor came a cropper due to the fact that the town is completely surrounded by the SAA.

Areehaa is about 3 kms to the south of Idlib.  It’s population is very pro-Damascus so expect the usual carnage at the hands of the Alqaeda savages.  I have been informed that the SAA assured the safety of government employees by evacuating most of them before the phased and organized withdrawal of our army.

About 7 days ago, the rodents bombarded the town with over 1000 rockets and artillery shells acquired by the Saudi Arabian apes and delivered to them by the brainless, sick Turks of Hakan Fidan’s MIT.  Coupled with American-supplied TOW anti-tank rockets, their ground assault to the north of the town was too costly to withstand given the fact that the army was still awaiting a large force from Hama to arrive.  The rats also, with Turk connivance, picked a time when meteorological predictions were for cloud cover essentially handicapping the SAAF again a la Idlib City.  With American-supplied MANPADS, our air force has to stay at elevations higher than the clouds in order to use newly acquired, super-accurate laser-guided Russian air-to-ground missiles.

The decision to withdraw from Areehaa was an easy one for the SAA High Command.  The chance of losing many soldiers to American equipment given to Alqaeda to massacre Christians and other minorities when the air force was hobbled by bad weather was too high a price.  Moreover, the areas about which we are talking are in the northwest of the country close to the stagnant feudal state of Turkey where the rats have guaranteed supply routes attended to by Erdoghan’s thugs.

The SAA has withdrawn to a short distance from Areehaa.  The SAA’s large army has repositioned at Awram Al-Jawz and Kafr Shalaayaa, all to the south and southwest.  The area around Jabal Al-Arba’een has been overrun by the rats except that the summit remains under the control of our soldiers who will need air-borne resupply every once in a while.  We can confirm that all supply routes to the army and to the provinces of Latakia, Hama and Tartous are protected with the International Highway remaining under the SAA’s control.  The Wahhabist child molesting war criminals have control now over Kafr Najd, Al-Mu’taram and Arshaayaa. 

The Western Press has begun another propaganda offensive quoting the eminently unquotable felon at SOHR.  That rodent claims that Hizbollah was involved in the withdrawal from Areehaa.  He is lying.  If there are any Lebanese fighters in the area, they are part of the National Defense Force which does accept both Lebanese, Iraqi and Palestinian volunteers.   You can always assume SOHR is lying from the fact that it gets all its falsehoods from MI6 and the stinking British Foreign Office.  Not to worry.

There are several factors playing out here which can explain why the SAA is not fighting to its highest capabilities.  The first is Iran’s negotiations with the West.  June 30 is the last day for the talks unless someone can extend that time.  The Iranians are not interested any longer in delaying this process.  They have received assurances from the BRICS countries that, no matter what the outcome, sanctions will be lifted in their entirety.  This means that China, India and Russia will declare the sanctions regime over.  With all these countries interested in trading with their own currencies, the bankruptcy of Obama’s policies will be brought into full relief.  This is why the U.S. is so keen on strengthening ISIS.  The trip by Iraqi p.m.  Al-‘Abbaadi to Moscow is only a prelude to what the Americans now know will be another U.S. exit.

Iran is anxious to get out of the U.N.-imposed sanctions regime.  And, so is Germany.  Businessmen in Germany are flooding Iran with opportunities for investment and business proposals  which the feckless, matronly hag, Angela Merkel, cannot ignore.  Add to this the burgeoning relationship between Germany’s BND and Syria’s security establishment in which Damascus is cooperating in anti-terrorist operations in Europe.

Whether a deal on Iran’s peaceful nuclear program will get off to a punctual and positive start is anybody’s guess.  But, Iran is banking, literally, on a major shift in its economic posture – so important the Saudis and their Zionist allies shiver at the very thought – because Iran will overtake the Zionist Khazar State as the biggest provider of technology to the region, an event which will redound to Syria’s benefit as bigger and better equipment will be purchased from the frugal Russians.

But, there is also the imminent collapse of Saudi Arabia.  The Saudi clan or “royal” family is at odds over succession and economic policy.  Add to that the adventure in Yemen where a coalition of nobodies is waging an empty-headed war to enshrine sectarianism as an axiom of Arab existence.  With Yemen not breaking, and, in fact, expanding into Saudi Arabian territory, the Saudis are completely at a loss to deal with this development especially in light of Pakistan’s reluctance to send troops while the Taliban are having their way in Afghanistan and the western spine of the country.  The Saudis can try to cajole Africans to come and participate in this fool’s errand, but, that cannot shake the belief that all experts have about the very existence of a Saudi army or, even if it existed, whether it would fight and die for a race of greedy apes and bloodsucking leeches which are the symbols on the Saudi escutcheon.

It appears that the SAA is willing to cede territory if it is on the margins of the country.  Towns like Al-Raqqa, Palmyra, Idlib, Manbij, are expendable and recoverable.  It’s all a matter of timing and planning.  The center of the country is in the hands of the government.  Rats can occupy desert zones with little interference from our army, to be sure, a condition which often leads commentators to proclaim, misleadingly,  that huge swathes of our lands to be in the realm of ISIS, for example.  But the territory is, more often than not, arid wasteland or rainless steppes.  We must never lose sight of the essential constituents of statehood and remember how wars ebb and flow.  I am most optimistic about Syria’s future.  The enemies of Syria are heading for a dark, pitiless abyss.  ZAF

Strategic retreat is a sign of intelligence not weakness. Setting your military strategy upon explosive-laden trucks driven by suicide drivers is a sign of both military weakness and desperation. What appear to be stunning successes are in fact the flashes of a comet which quickly loses its brilliance and comes crashing down.

Ziad, thanks for the sensible analysis, amidst a blizzard of spin and poisonous lies from the usual sources. You will be aware of al-Jazeera’s promulgating the vile al-Jawlani, in a lame effort to rehab al-Nusra. Going by the intemperate fury of the Guardio’s commenters, this has backfired. Not even the English chauvinists are stupid enough to cop what Whitehall pedophiles are now spinning. As you say, Syria can allow incursions, and may even learn from the Russians their scorched-earth policies. As long as the goal is the full sovereignty and the full territorial integrity of the nation. There is not… Read more »

Can somebody explain to me in very layman’s terms … why can’t Iran do without trading with the US and is hurt while not having the sanctions lifted? Dont these big countries like Korea China and Russia have their own economies and exporting going on? I never studied economics soooo …

Another tough decision but understandable, since the thin corridor is becoming harder to defend. I really still think that taking Jisr can play a big role to make the front on NW Hama, NE Lattakia more “defendable”, but time is passing and Jisr is still in rats’ hands and rats are still in NE Lattakia, there is a real need for speed and sense of urgency to storm these areas, or a flank will be always open for rats to come in. May God protect Syria.

Spero anch’io che la ritirata dell’esercito siriano da Palmyra e dalle zone prossime al confine turco siano una mossa strategica ma questo potrebbe permettere ai “legionari” dell’Isis e degli altri gruppi filo-terroristi di riorganizarsi e pianificare ulteriori avanzate ed occupazioni, con seri rischi per il territorio e la popolazione ancora sotto il controllo del legittimo governo siriano.

I’m really getting tired of Putin standing by with his hands crossed…

4 years ago, Putin could’ve declared his “bases” in syria in “trouble” and flooded the entire country with 500,000 troops or more and put a stop to all this crap in a heart beat in the “name of world peace”…

But no. He sells guns…

Really disheartening…

I know Syria will be victorious whatever the ISIS monkeys and its supporters do, and I know the people of Syria will never stoop to what the West have done to Syria through it’s abetting of ISIS and Al Qaeda – because Syria, unlike the West, is bound by honor. The West has lost it’s way and has become shameless and corrupted to its core – else it couldn’t support ISIS – that degree of cynicism spells the end of a civilized society. This corruption will be its downfall. The West will go the way of the USSR but Syria… Read more »

Does anyone know how the opposition Turkish parties feel about Erdogan’s support for terrorists of AQ/Nusra &ISIS?

Is there any hope of a change of policy if the bloodthirsty rat Erdogan was out of power? Surely not all Turks can be in favour of this madness!?

Sad, but unfortunately predictable. The army must remove what remains of coridor, now useless, and prepare to defend Hama and Homs, likely future targets and Al Nosra Daesh. Since these coordinate their offensives since the reconciliation of their mentors and creditors Turks and Saudis. The troops freed from the Qalamoun, new weapons supplied by Russia and Iran will make the difference to repel Daesh Palmyra and stop the offensive of Al Nusra. It’s a losing battle, but Ziad is rigth, the obectif was to bring down the government in two months, and it still stands, as the Western “double play”… Read more »

I am sorry Ziad, the reality now is ugly for Syria, the syrians are alone because the realpolitik. The fall of Ariha was because the high command of SAA is fat, lazy and incompetent. Poor syrian people

As you’ve said before Ziad the Saudis struggle to master technology that doesen’t involve camel shit . You could be forgiven for thinking the US are happy for the Saudis to fk everything up, because at some point they will need rescuing by uncle sam, could be that the US would like a hike in crude, and a lot more dollars from clan Saud, either way the kingdom has at last been receiving some payback. Keep the pressure on you Houthis Hopefully they’ll be much more, the royal palace or the den of iniquity or wherever they hang out ,in… Read more »

“WHAT IS TEHERAN DOING ABOUT IT?” What is your beloved Bolshevik Russia doing about it? For all these years? Iran is maintaining your country militarily and economically. Without Iran, Syria would have fallen long time ago. Even with this imaginary help from Russia. Iran had to send its own fighter jets to Syria, because Russian regime refuses to send Su-25. It was Putin’s political decision, as the Russian company said publicly in Russian media. Russia many times publicly said that it refused to deliver weapons that can be used against “Syrian opposition”. Just recently Russia publicly agreed with USA and… Read more »

I think the next strategic retreat should be from Deir Ezzor, and then after Aleppo. That’s a good plan.

great analysis. well done. I do also think after June 30th the whole Syria, Iran, Iraq and Russian strategy in the area will be changed to more offensive than just defense. That is why the Israhell , French and US just trying very hard for the talk to fail in order for them to continue their Far-East , Middle-East, and Near-East strategy which has benefited their Fat bankers and Fat military industry for over a century. well said and may God bring back the Peace and prosperity to Syria and it’s wonderful people.
