SYRIAN ARMY 25 KILOMETERS FROM TABQA AIRBASE; SUDDEN SURGE IN ARMY AUDACITY HAS AL-RAQQA IN ITS SIGHTS

الجيش العربي السوري يدخل مدينة الرقة معقل تنظيم داعش

 

AL-RAQQA:  The Syrian Army has left Dayr Haafir behind in a relentless push toward the Tabqa Dam and the Jiraah Military Airbase.   The army can move over 25 miles per day, and, ergo, unless ISIS can find the resources to blunt the government’s assault, we predict the army will be outside the Tabqa airbase area tomorrow.  The entire grouping approaching the base is fully mechanized  and highly mobile.  Along the way, the SAA took on a platoon-size pack of ISIS hyenas driving in a Saudi-financed and Turk-supplied 4-wheel drive flatbed.  The driver and his passenger were all too anxious to surrender after the army drew a bead on the vehicle with several Kornets.  The two are being interrogated vigorously.  I have been told, they want safe passage out of Syria.

Rat trash found dead along the way to Al-Raqqa.

 

In a similar way, the SAA also confiscated a BMB truck at the SyriaTel station east of Dayr Haafir with the help of menacing RuAF Sukhoi’s flying overhead.  I have no other details.

The army is now marching due east on the Latakia-Aleppo-Albukamaal N-4 Highway.  There appears to be little resistance with ISIS trying to maneuver into Aleppo in what appears to be a doomed effort.

Elements of the SAA invasion group seen here in this video as taken by RT:  (Thanks, Khaled and Silvia Iranova)

In Aleppo, the terrorists are trying to buy time for Nusra/Alqaeda by ratcheting up their bombardments of civilian areas in Al-Ansaari Quarter.  Yesterday, and today, they fired numerous volleys of mortars and GRAD rockets at ordinary civilians from the areas in Al-Raashideen which they still control.   At Al-Shaykh Maqsood, Nusra fired artillery at civilian centers and then, switched to firing at Handaraat.

 

Bursa Village:  We are delighted to announce the death of “Umar Al-Daaghistaani” who was killed by Faylaq Al-Shaam as the latter group was trying to hit Syrian Army targets.  He was killed with 3 or 4 other rodents in what was described by the terrorists as a “friendly fire” mistake.  Yawn.

Ziad when do you predict that SAA with Iran and Russia will take Raqqa? Next 3 days or more? What will the American Cockroaches do now, without Raqqa there will be no “Kurdish State” or division of Syria. Turkey won’t let Aleppo fall to US and Kurds either, despite being the allies of US they don’t want a “Kurdish State”. Turkey is confused at the moment on what to do. I can’t figure out how USA will respond. Russia’s mission is clear, they want Assad to control 70% of Syria and then hold elections. Something Zionists are mortally afraid of.… Read more »

Es verdad lo que fice Canthama, sin embargo son sospechosos los avances y ataques de los mal llamados “moderados”, parece (y no es una sinple sospecha) la participacion articulada de todos los terroristas. La pausa rusa les ha permitido movilizar enormes cantidades de hombres y municiones como se evidencio el viernes con las imagenes del Centro Ruso de Reconciliacion en Siria. Hay que estar atentos a las maniobras politicas de Obama y su particular sesgo protector sobre los paises del golfo y turquia por el apoyo descarado a los terroristas.

Ziad is getting a bit over-excited — understandable, given the significance of Raqqa, but still confusing rather than helpful for news…. As Leith’s Al-Masdar notes, the advance has not been as rapid and unhindered as Ziad portrays. The Syrian Army have had to fight ISIS to take the same village — Abu Allaj — on Thursday/Friday and then again Saturday/Sunday: “The Syrian Armed Forces…were forced to retreat after the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a large counter-offensive to recover the points they lost along the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway.” The Syrian Army is about 35-45 km from Tabqa Airbase… Read more »

SOUTH ALEPPO FRONT

Just a note, as Ziad did not mention this in his update.

The Iranian-led forces appear to be trying to consolidate at al-Khalasa, having lost four villages and fuel and ammunition depots on Friday and Saturday. It appears that intense Russian airstrikes are preventing further retreat, which would put pressure on al-Hadher to the south.

A warplane was downed today — still unclear if the pilots were Russian or Syrian and what their status is.

In recent days it seems that Russia is back attacking western supported vermin in Syria with a vengeance. Things are moving fast. The SAA with its allies are about to surprise us with big victories. Someone at another site said that Russia has a history of using a fallback to let the enemy come forward to expose itself, then counterattack. Some here were upset with Russia for slowing down for the Geneva negotiations. I think our fears are about to be laid to rest.

Sometimes speed is of the essence in warfare, sometimes it is not.

Sometimes manpower is of the essence in warfare, sometimes it is not

But every time victory is of the essence, to move forward to the next target and fight another battle.

Russia absorbed the attacks in 1941, only to scale the Reichstag’s walls in 1945. Russia has been actively involved in the Syrian MToO for 8 months [since 2015], so guess where it will be in 2019?

That’s right. A free and united Syria.

All these groups are trying to overthrow the Syrian government, and, though they often cooperate with one-another, like with Al-Qaeda in Syria (called “Al-Nusra”), and ISIS (also called “ISIL” and “Daesh”), the groups also occasionally attack each other, because each of the groups… Read more »

Securing the Jiraah Military Airbase needs to be a priority. This would give the army a much needed forward base for resupplies. The concern now is not to be attacked or cut off from the rear. Yes, I know it might be remote but stranger things have happened in war. The base would also allow for the build up of the needed equipment for the assault. Now it is a matter of time of when everything will be ready. A timed assult on three cites – Aleppo, Raqqa, and Dier ez Zor would make IS go nuts. They would not… Read more »

Greetings Ziad:

I hope the SAA takes Tabqa Dam before the US/NATO backed Kurdish militias take it.
I understand that Russia is supporting SAA with airstrikes while the US is supporting the treacherous Kurds- much more danger there then meets the eye.

The NATO backed Kurds already control Mosul Dam and they would sure like to get their corrupt paws on Tabqa
