To my readers: I will be out of town from Thursday to Saturday morning at which time I will assess all reports from Syria and the media for posting. Please be patient. ZAF
SYRIAN ARMY HAS ENTERED AL-RAHEEMA VILLAGE IN NORTHERN ALEPPO DESTROYING ALL FORTIFICATIONS, SEIZING A HUG STOCKPILE OF WEAPONS FROM TURKEY AND SAUDI ARABIA. SYRPER PREDICTS THE TOWN WILL BE RAT-FREE BY THURSDAY MIDNIGHT DAMASCUS TIME.
Kafr Hamra: A nest of terrorists belonging to Nusra was destroyed with 6 killed and 3 taken prisoner. No names.
A’zaaz: Very important, this is the 17 day the SAA and SAAF have been active on this crucial point near Turkey. We know there were direct hits on terrorist encampments, but have no details.
Al-Sha’aar Quater: 2 terrorists killed moving from one apartment to another. Citizens alerted police who surrounded the criminals and killed them.
Al-Sukkari Quarter: Skirmish with no details.
Bustaan Al-Qassr: Savvy tactics evidently used to force a pack of hyenas out of a fixed position. Wael tells me the pack was forced to regroup and fight from a dilapidated apartment. No casualty reports yet.
Hanaanu: More fighting. About to fall. Tenacious rodents from Nusra fear death at the hands of SAA and ISIS or, even angry residents of Aleppo.
Khaan Al-‘Asal: Confirmed 3 pickups with 23mm cannons destroyed by SAA and NDF. Terrorists cannot last much longer here with their supply lines completely cut. 17 dead terrorists.
Dayr Jamaal: Another nest of Ahraar Al-Shaam destroyed. No details.
Fighting reported all along these fronts: Al-Mansoora, Daarat ‘Izza, Greater Awram, Al-Ataareb, Tal Hataabaat, Huraytaan, Industrial City (rats starving), Tal Balaat, Al-‘Uwayja, Ba’eedeen, Handaraat, Al-Jandool, Qastal Mushut.
Those of you who have been mapping the progress of the SAA can see the pincer closing. Supply lines from the north are being blocked, especially by bombing A’zaaz. The Turks seem incapable of developing a strategy to galvanize their own soldiers who seem, according to Wael, to be indisposed to helping dyed-in-the-wool Jihadists. Don’t forget, most Turks are not fanatical Muslims and distrust bearded sociopaths.
