SYRIAN ARMY CONQUERS PALMYRA’S CITADEL AND THE SYRIATEL TOWER; ONWARDS TO THE HEART OF PALMYRA

HOMS:  The Syrian Army has racked up another victory over the Turk-supported and Saudi-financed terrorist group called ISIS.  In 2 places, at the SyriaTel Tower atop a hill overlooking the “Necropolis” (Jabal Al-Quboor) and the Citadel of Palmyra (a/k/a “the Citadel of Fakhreddeen Al-Ma’ni”, d.o.b. August 6, 1572 and died April 13, 1635), the Syrian army stormed high fortifications set up by the terrorist rodents and destroyed them all killing every single vermin except those who absconded early to face certain death at the hands of ISIS itself or our vaunted Desert Falcons.   You can see the citadel in the photo below.  It was built in the 13th Century by the Mamluke military giant, Rukneddeen Baybars Al-Bunduqdaari  who was headquartered in Egypt. But, it was renamed for Prince Fakhreddeen, in the 16th Century, who established a Druze Emirate here and elsewhere in Syria.  Lebanese historians and fantasts cause unending sarcasm when they refer to the Syrian-born prince as “Lebanese” despite the fact that his birthplace “B’aqleen” was in the Province of Syria.  The citadel, which overlooks,  ancient Palmyra is a classic of the architecture of the time, (notwithstanding its poor engineering), complete with drawbridge, moat and crenelated walls.

The Syrian Army has also liberated the “Hotel District” including the Semiramis and Didiman.  As I write, the army is pushing deep into the city aiming to establish control over the Fuel Station.  Resistance has been sporadic, the rats mostly relying on booby-trapped vehicles and IEDs.  Each rat has been assigned a platoon whose sole purpose is to expose him and kill him.  According to Monzer, there are only about 600 rodents left in the city, some of whom are known to be preparing for a pullout or a negotiated surrender – an event which will not happen, by the way.  They are in a true dilemma: if they surrender to our Falcons, they will die.  If they escape to their litter-mates in Al-Raqqa or Al-Sukhna, they will, also, die.  So sad.  Sigh.

Luckily, when the rodents first appeared on the scene in May 2015, the army evacuated the city’s population along with thousands of ancient artifacts.  Only the sarcophagi which weighed tons, could not be put on the backs of trucks.  With almost no population to speak of, the army is not attacking gingerly when it comes to blasting whole areas of the city.  We are only hours away from total liberation.
