CHECKMATE IN WADI BARADA, LATEST SAA GAINS PUSHED THE TERRORISTS TO NEGOTIATION, GREEN BUSES ON THE WAY. SAA AND ALLIES ADVANCING NORTH OF T4 AIRBASE

“Exclusive to Syrper by Canthama”

 

 

Damascus – West Ghouta

 

The battle for Waadi Baradaa has been going on for 2 weeks since the day the terrorists started to blackmail 5 million people in the Damascus area. The initial approach by the SAA was to get closer to the main villages. There are some 11 villages which have been under terrorist occupation for over 4 years. When the SAA managed to control the southern hills overlooking some of the villages the SAA used pinpoint artillery and GRAD missiles  hitting terrorists’ headquarters and main gathering points. Little by little, the terrorists had to tolerate unsustainable losses in both killed and wounded. Surrounded on a larger hilly area without resupply and short on ammo, the terrorists started to blackmail the local civilians, forcing an estimated 2,000+ civilians to flee the area toward safer villages under Syrian government control.

Reinforcements arrived for the SAA and the final plan to liberate all Waadi Baradaa was finalized. In the last two days of battle, the SAA and its allies managed to break through from the northeast capturing vital hills such as Dhahrat Al-Nayla overlooking 6 key villages on the western end of the valley. In factm the SAA encircled and, thus, was able to control both the south and north high grounds resulting in checkmate.

In a matter of a few hours the terrorists called for reconciliation.  The details are emerging but it is known that some terrorists will take the green buses to Idlib and several will apply for amnesty. At the moment, the SAA is already controlling the main water spring at ‘Ayn Al-Feeja and water department technicians are on the scene in an attempt to restore the water supply to Damascus as rapidly as possible. 

Wadi Barada was the last bastion of terrorists in the larger West Ghoutaa area. The implication of that is very important for what is coming which is the liberation of East Ghoutaa and the complete safety of millions of Syrians in Damascus Province. When all the Damascus area is free of terrorists, the number of battle-tested soldiers who would be freed to fight in other fronts is very substantial; very likely in the tens of thousands.

 

Central Homs

 

The Latest news from T4 is encouraging. Though there were several reports that ISIS was withdrawing from the area due to heavy losses and the growing pressure near Al-Raqqa, it is a known fact from past ISIS operations to see them fleeing, but, then, striking back; their mobility is their main tactical advantage.

It seems, however, that this time their “fall-back-come-forward” tactics failed miserably at T4. In another attempt to storm the small village of Shareefa, ISIS again lost multiple armored vehicles and dozens of KIAs.

Sensing ISIS’ inability to cause more damages in the area, the SAA and allies took advantage of the momentum and struck hard at ISIS north of T4 capturing several small hills and expanding the safety perimeter of the base. It is not yet clear whether this is an SAA move toward central Homs to clear ISIS off the many villages they control there and in eastern Hama, or a flanking action aimed at the key gas fields northeast of the airbase, Mahr, Jiraah and Jazal.

 

Other topics

 

  • Iraq – Anbar Province

Very important offensive on-going at upper Euphrates in Anbaar Province. In less than 2 days, the Iraqi Army and militias have liberated 11 villages and it is now approaching the city of ‘Aana and the village of Rawaa, increasing the pressure on ISIS toward the vital border town of Al-Qaa`im. The fight won’t be easy for the brave Iraqi army because for this vital crossing ISIS will stand tough.

The implications for ISIS if it loses Al-Qaa`im are huge. Their vulnerability in East Homs and Deir El-Zor Provinces will be very high and it is most likely that revolts will start in many villages aimed at expelling ISIS from their midst.

The Syrian Government is moving fast to realign with tribal leaders in the area to ensure smooth transition of order and power. (Note from Ziad: Nawaaf Al-Basheer has returned to Syria and is expected to use his influence with eastern Syrian tribes to fight ISIS.)

Many in the Obama Administration need to be investigated and put on trial if crimes are uncovered. It is clear that many members of Obama’s inner circle have been committing crimes against humanity and also the American people for the past 8 years. Put them on trial and if convicted, they need to receive severe punishment for their crimes!

The disruption of water delivery to millions in Damascus is a war crime of the highest order.
It speaks loudly to the true nature of the US and EU and their vermin.
The sooner the vermin are run out of Syria the better.

Victory to Syria!

As always, the radical terrorists, mostly al Qaeda, in Wadi Barada are trying to sabotage the agreement signed late last night, some provocation and skirmishes are happening now, very similar MO that happened in at Tall, al Haama and Dahiat Qudsaiyah few months ago, and was dealt at that time, the SAA and allies will deal with again in the same way, swift and sound. The deal’s summary: 1) 6 months grace period for men who avoided conscription. 2) Hand over mid and heavy weapons. 3) Locals to go to any security agency for regularization of status. 4) Terrorists from… Read more »

Reports showing there is on going fight inside the village of Hazrama in east Ghouta, unconfirmed reports saying the SAA already controls the cemetery and the roundabout near it (location below). Should that prove to be true by Sunday morning, then it is a very strong indication that Hazrama and Nashabiyah are about to be liberated and the front line be pushed toward Autaya. As of the last few days, the SAA has already fire control of the only road in and out of the pocket, the one form Hawsh Saliniyah to Hazrama, which basically limited the terrorists ability to… Read more »

It has been al long time since I commented, I know Syria and Russia re doing the right thing, for ALL of us. Buckle up, this is not over, this is just the beginning.
Life has its course, and for cheap jew-paid terrorist rats, it is short. And not glorious, we hope it is bloody.

‘People generally do not favour action on a non-alarming situation when arguments seem to be balanced on both sides and there is a clear doubt… Nurturing public doubts by demonstrating that this is not a clear-cut situation in support of the opponents usually is all that is necessary.’ – Phil Lesly, ‘Coping with Opposition Groups,’ Public Relations Review 18, 1992, p.331

Is this atonement for slavery? Kind of like how Jesus washed their feet.. In this case you have to wash their ass because liberal whites are so ashamed of using sex slaves. IT WAS AN EMERGENCY..

Although I understand the overall benefits of this drive for “reconciliation” but for the life of me I cannot understand this: “A main member of the hotelier opposition, Nawaaf Al-Basheer, has returned to Syria to reaffirm his loyalty to his people, army and president”? Once a turn-coat, always a turn-coat. If he was ready to sell his Country for a nice Hotel accommodation and a handful of worthless green bucks, what in a hell can make you believe he won’t do it again for a higher reward? Is that the thinking in Arabic world:”he who has made money, is worth… Read more »

UPDATES: 1. Kremlin turns its attention to Libya. http://www.military.com/daily-news/2017/01/04/the-kremlin-turns-its-attention-to-libya.html Russia supports Libyan army chief, Khalifa Heftar, but it might take time for him to win over the different factions and tribes within Libya. However Heftar is supported by Saudi, UAE, Egypt and now Russia. 2.
