DAYR EL-ZOR: You have all heard the news about the American air strike on the 137th Artillery Brigade stationed at a Desert Forces Base between ‘Ayyaash and Al-Baaghiliyya. You may have also heard about the American attempt to blame the malicious attack on the Russian Air Force which even the Syrian Army has described as a pure lie. The fact of the matter is that ISIS was planning an attack on the base after its dismal concatenation of failures at the Dayr El-Zor AB. ISIS needed some new triumph in order to raise the sagging morale of its rank-and-file…..and the U.S. agreed. The coordination was completed with the help of the Turkish military which continued to maintain contact with the terrorist rat organization. And such a plan like this had to have the approval of the biggest rat of them all in the White House. But the plan failed miserably.
As the ISIS main force was seen taking position across the Euphrates at a ford where the river’s level was low enough to permit four-wheel vehicles to cross, albeit with some difficulty, SAA spotters noticed the presence of many rubber dinghies and other small vessels useable for crossing a body of water. The SAA opened fire as soon as the trucks started to collect. SAA-MI heard chatter on terrorist telephone demanding some intervention to prevent a slaughter of their ranks, and, abra-cadabra, the U.S. sent in bombers to target the artillery laying waste to the ISIS rodents. Photos of the damage can be seen in the article I posted below from Fortruss.
In any case, this was typical of the inept Turk planning which envisioned an ISIS presence on the north edge of the provincial capital. The number of dead ISIS vermin exceeds 30 with many wounded seen being spirited out of the area in pickups. The SAA did not stop firing ordnance until the rats were out of range.
The treacherous American attack killed 4 Syrian soldiers and wounded over 13.

The SAA continues to liberate many towns and villages in all areas of Aleppo. The SAA has freed the following:

In all the above, the SAA Engineering units are dismantling IEDs left behind by the fleeing rats.
Near Dayr Haafir, the SAA liberated these towns:
Shuwaylikh which blocked ISIS supply lines
In the South rural area of Aleppo, these were liberated yesterday:
In the north, the SAA wiped out the last remaining terrorist in Al-Khaalidiyya Village.
There was an attempted infiltration from Bani Zayd into the Al-Khaalidiyya Quarter of the big city by way of exploding a tunnel on the edge of the area. The operation was a disaster for Al-Qaeda/Nusra and many rodents were killed.
LATAKIA: Going smoothly for an area as obstacle-ridden as this. The SAA has added these locations to the long list of liberated villages and towns:
‘Akku (A C&C HQ was decimated along with all fortifications. Number killed was 15.)
Booz Al-Khirba: (During combing operations, the SAA and PDC found anti-tank TOW launchers and rockets, a field hospital, narcotics and Saudi/Qatari-supplied food.)
Al-Furulluq Tree Sanctuary freed 2 days ago.
All hills surrounding Al-Qizghidaar
Upper and Lower Mushayrifa
All Salmaa is not surrounded and the rats have no way out. (I have a report that shows rat morale has sunk to rock-bottom)

Al-Shu’ayraat AB and Tiyaas AB: The Russian Air Force is now relocated at both these airbases in eastern Homs Province. It was not just the Al-Shu’ayraat. RuAF has been seen flying out of these bases for the last 48 hours. Note also that the Kuwayris AB in Aleppo is being revamped.
