Ziad was born in Tripoli, a hotbed of sectarianism.  Now they’re going after ministers responsible for sports and athletic competition.  What a farce!


Ohmigosh!  Does this mean Syria doesn’t count any more?  Look at all those refugees from Mali.  Who caused all this?  Well!  The French and NATO, of course. 

SyrPer was the first to say it:  The Algerian operation was not wise.  And it’s not over yet.  We like Algeria’s government but can’t abide cooperation with the stinking French government of Hollande:

Do you believe anyone could get a fair trial in Libya with those apes in power?  What a joke.  Just watch, Saif-Al-Islam Qaddafi will be condemned to death in a kangaroo court:

Intelligent article about Syria which is worth reading carefully.  I like the part about Iskandar missiles:

AMIR sends this long and tendentious article from the Guardian about the tension between FSA and the Al-Qaeda types.  Good read, though, but beware: There are some errors in this one.  The big one is the statement that the Taftanaz Airbase is in terrorist hands.  No way.


The Iraqi Army has joined the battle by introducing 10 rats to the fiery corners of Hell.  At the juncture of Iraq, Syria and Jordan, Iraqi army regulars confronted Al-Qaeda terrorists killing all of them.  SyrPer has no contacts in Iraq and, thus, no names are available.  This has been confirmed by both Iraqi media and SANA.

IDLIB:  In what is becoming a common theme among the terrorist criminals, two rival groups fought for territory and revenge near the northern town of Sarmada.  There is bad blood between Jabhat Al-Nusra and the so-called Farouq Brigades.  We suspect that the group is not named after the later King Farouq of Egypt.  The police counted 8 bodies after the violence subsided.  The hostility is due to the assassination of Tha’er Al-Waqqas who is blamed for killing Firas Al-Absi.  These two pieces of pork excrement would hardly be worth mentioning but for the fact that their retarded ape followers viewed them as crucial to their business of looting, raping and occasionally fighting the Syrian Army.   What will they do now?

We doubt that King Farouq, an Albanian by the way, is the inspiration for anything other than Prince Fatso of Qatar.   

AL-HASAKEH:  In a desperate effort to retake what they lost so miserably two months ago, the FSA and the Jabhat Al-Nusra attacked Ra’s Al-Ain on the border between Turkey and Syria.  They actually had three tanks which were quickly destroyed by Kurdish PKK defenders using Iranian manufactured RPGs.  16 rodents died in this battle.

DEIR AL-ZOR:  In a brilliant ambush set up by three SAA soldiers, 8 rats were killed in the Al-Mufti area.  We can also confirm that 10 other rats were seriously injured.  We are proud to announce the names of the dead as:

Bashir Al-Ahwal
Munqidh Abdel-Razzaq
Muhammad Bakamal
Riad Ahmad Mansour
Ahmad Muhammad Qa’our
Mahmoud Zein Al-Tabbaa’
Abdel-Rahman Ali Al-Amood (Iraqi)
Karrar Muhammad Abdel-Sater (Iraqi)

Thanks Monzer.

HOMS:  After the Syrian army’s stunning victory over the rat terrorists at Al-Quseir,  another victory is repeated at Teebet Al-Imam.  Yesterday, the entire area was cleared of scum and all inhabitants invited to their homes in a totally safe environment.   


The road to the airport is clear but subject to further closures due to terrorism.  In East Damascus Governorate, we are pleased to announce the death of the following cockroaches in a battle close to the border with Suweida:

Rafiq Umran
Muhammad Ali Abu-Shanab
Dari Ali Al-Ma’touq 

DARAYYA:  Light encounters with remnants of rodent forces continue as cautious families begin to return to that area.  Syrian Army regulars continue to come across large stashes of weapons indicating that the rats had planned a long stay in the town.  Once again, Monzer comments that drugs were particularly remarkable.  SAA also uncovered an entire crate of American-manufactured M-16 rifles at Al-Haaret Al-Sharafiyya north of Al-Muazzamiyyeh close to the Damascus-Beirut Highway.    

AL-HAJAR AL-ASWAD:  This is southern Damascus close to the Yarmouk Camp and the Shi’i shrine of Sayyida Zeinab.  Four specimens of vermin were sent to oblivion when their van, marked as an ambulance, was detected by militia.  One militia-man belonging to the newly formed Hussein Turkmani Regiment opened fire on the trash, ignited a phosphorous bomb being carried by a terrorist in the rear compartment.  SyrPer is pleased to congratulate the families of these subhuman garbage and names them:

Abdel-Rahim Akram Maghribi
Jalal Muhammad Bakri
Talal Ali Samamneh
Muhammad Abdel-Qader Shallal

A terrorist thief was identified by police and shot dead.  His name is:

Khodr Ali Al-Tahhan

We are pleased to announce that King Abdallah II has made it clear he wants no exacerbation of the situation in Syria.  He has faithfully blocked terrorists from entering Syria from Jordan, at least, for the time being.


Anastasia Popova

Anastasia Popova

Pressenza has recently  re-launched an article written by Silvia Cattori, that reported the documentary made by Anastasia Popova and transmitted by the channel Russia 24. This publication has attracted praise and criticism for the point of view about what is happening in Syria that is very different from the one circulating in the European media.
For this reason we decided to pursue this issue by talking to the author of the report, a young journalist who covered the “Arab spring” in different countries and has spent some time in Syria, in contact with many people involved in the conflict.
Anastasia, first of all many thanks for your willingness. How long have you been in Syria with your crew?
We were there for 7 months in total, from August of 2011, when there was no war yet, until now when the war in full swing. So, you can say that all the events unfolded right in front of our eyes. On average we were on the ground in Syria for about a month at a time, from Deraa to Idleb and Aleppo and from Latakia along the Turkish border to al-Qamishli and down to Deir Ez Zour.
What is your general impression about the state of the conflict?
From the time when we arrived in August all the way until December, what struck us the most was the difference between what was being said about Syria from the outside and what was actually happening inside the country. Sometimes it would reach the point of absurdity, when we would get calls from our channel asking us about so-and-so square where an anti-government demonstration was being shot at by tanks or artillery. We would get to that square and there was literally nothing — a few pedestrians and a policeman directing traffic.
Despite all our attempts we didn’t manage to find the thousands-strong demonstrations against the government so often talked about by the Western media.  We spoke to the opposition, and even they told us that it was very difficult to gather people to protest. The only way to do this was through the mosques, and if they managed to get even 50 people to come out for fifteen minutes and film them, they considered it a victory. The vast majority of the population was just not interested.
Then provocations started, people were killed for belonging to the wrong religion, armed attacks on government buildings and employees, police stations and court houses began.
Nevertheless, the government responded to the peaceful demands. Laws were changed. A commission was created for a national dialogue that included almost all the opposition groups. Based on the work of this commission a new Constitution was adopted through a national referendum. Then, elections were held, and a lot of the political opposition inside Syria got seats in the Parliament. And so, the whole topic of mass protests became moot.
But as it turns out, for the key interested players this was not the end of the game. They put together what can be called “the foreign opposition”, composed mainly of people who had been living in Europe for over 40 years. Obviously, due to lack of support inside Syria, this opposition had no chance of coming to power via elections, so they turned to the only option available to them — overthrowing the current government with weapons.
They began pitting religious confessions against one another and at the same time sending in foreign insurgents. The proof of this can be found in the latest UN report, which lists armed people from 29 countries (!) fighting against the Syrian army.
They use foreign weapons that cannot be purchased in Syria, which we filmed, and which the Syrian army does not have, including M16 sniper rifles, European machine guns, various anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, as well as advanced satellite communications equipment which is openly provided to them by certain Western states.
These weapons are first sent to Turkey (evidence of this was provided by an Egyptian businessman), then given to the FSA by Turkish officers on the border.  This was witnessed by a Lebanese journalist who tried to film it but was arrested in Turkey for three days and had her camera broken.
By the way, the border between Syria and Turkey is controlled by the Turkish army due to an agreement between the two countries signed in 1998. There is no Syrian border patrol. I have been there and I have seen it.
In addition Western states openly provide the opposition, which is composed largely of foreigners, with money. Because of all this, it is hard to call what is happening in Syria a civil war, although now they managed to divide the people and there are cases when half of a family is fighting for the government and the other half against it.
Do you think there could be a peaceful solution?
I think it is the only way to end this crisis. Most wars between countries at some point stopped by signing a peace agreement. The situation on the ground is this: all the major cities are still controlled by the government. After more than a year of fierce fighting armed groups still couldn’t create any strongholds or take the main part of the territory. They keep splitting up because some lose financial support, some end up looting, some already began battling foreign insurgents, some join al-Qaida, which is also fighting against Syria and which, if I may remind you, is officially named a terrorist group. So with whom should they negotiate? Even the UN monitors couldn’t find any single leader of these armed groups and another attempt to reach a ceasefire had failed. And yet, in his recent speech the president once again stressed his readiness to negotiate, but this time he openly referred to the foreign sponsors of the militants. Unfortunately, a peaceful solution does not seem to be on their agenda — they’ve already rejected his offer.
Why did you realize this documentary? Have you been asked by your superior or was it your initiative?
The original decision to send me to Syria was made by my superiors, but naturally, during the course of my work there I made friends, many of whom were subsequently killed. I went to Syria to report facts, but in time I realized that people are not facts — they are people, and I felt their pain in my own heart.
This movie was my personal initiative. It was an emotional response to the events which I was reporting. I made it to honour my fallen friends and the people of Syria, who don’t care about politics and who just want to live in peace.
Fortunately, my job provides me an outlet to get this point across to many people, and I used this opportunity, although getting my superiors to approve this film was not that easy.
We have received criticism that Russia 24 is a channel that only reflects the position of the Russian government: what can you reply?
It’s easy to attack the messenger when you don’t like the message. When people see reports done from comfortable hotel rooms in Lebanon, citing “unverified information” from activists about supposed government atrocities, they chant “Yes! Yes! Kill the evil dictator!”, but when someone actually spends considerable time in Syria trying to figure out what’s going on, then comes back and says, “Hey guys, that is not AT ALL what is happening…”, people brand it as government propaganda. So what can I reply? That a ticket to Syria is not that expensive and its borders are open. Over 300 foreign media outlets worked there and sent their reports via the Internet, freely and without any censorship from the Syrian government; 3G is available all over the country. If you do not trust me, “a young reporter from a state-owned Russian channel”, go and see for yourself. But don’t be surprised to end up in an alternate reality.
Here is a good example from The Independent: “I have now been in Damascus for 10 days, and every day I am struck by the fact that the situation in areas of Syria I have visited is wholly different from the picture given to the world both by foreign leaders and by the foreign media.”  (
Another one from The Guardian:
FSA- “There has been no real progress on the fronts and that has affected our sponsors, who haven’t been sending us ammunition…Even the people are fed up with us. We were liberators, but now they denounce us and demonstrate against us.
What do you think of the attitude of the Russian government regarding the situation in Syria?
I think they are perfectly aware of the situation on the ground and they constantly insist on peace — immediate ceasefire and all-inclusive dialogue. What more can you ask for?
You are going to leave for a well-deserved vacation. Will you return to Syria? What hope do you have about it?
It was not my decision to go there in the first place. I was sent to Syria as a special reporter and I was just doing my job. It’s up to my superiors to decide where I go next but if they say Syria – I guess I will agree

It was very sad to hear the news of the terrorism bombing at Aleppo University. All those innocent lives lost, for nothing other than to demoralize the general population. It was also upsetting to read reports that over 1,000 factories in the Aleppo region were looted and the machines and materials were taken to Turkey. Seems the West and the kalb from Turkey and the GCC want to destroy Syria’s manufacturing base too. It doesn’t say much about the quality and productiveness of Turkey’s manufacturing. You cannot compete, so go and loot your neighbor? I sure hope there will be some sort of restitution for the factory owners.

Well, there is always karma – What goes around, comes around. The laws of the universe are immutable.

You want to laugh Ziad here goes
According to U.S. assessments, 80 percent of the country is under the control of militants, while almost 40 percent of Damascus has fallen into rebel hands. As such, al-Assad has resorted to missiles because he has been unable to redeploy his overstretched forces, U.S. officials told Turkish Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioğlu during a recent meeting involving the State and Defense Departments that also touched on Iran, Iraq and the Middle East peace process.
For its part, the Turkish side asked the Barack Obama administration to be more active now that the presidential elections are complete, while conveying its concerns over the 22-month-long crisis. Turkey also criticized the timing of Washington’s decision to declare the Jabhat al-Nusra front, an Islamist group at the forefront of the fight against the Syrian government, as a terrorist organization.

The US provides another ‘expiry date’ for Syria’s government, insisting to Turkish officials that Bashar al-Assad will fall in six months

ANSWER:  Can the Turks be that stupid? 

Anonymous asks for some updates on the Syrian military.  I will provide it at the earliest.  But, let me just say that two big freighters carrying weapons from Russia are about to dock at Tartous:

What kind of tanks does the Syrian army possess.? The T72s are fairly old. Maybe you could post something about the strength of the Syrian military.? Number of modern tanks, helicopters etc. There is a worry that their military assets are being depleted?

Syrian army needs arms for infantry and it’s special forces. This battle will be won by the infantry. How true it is but apparently Hezbollah/al Quds battle field tactics are being studied and modified to fit with Syrian terrains. If it was easy you could be sure that NATO/Israel would have launched an attack. Who would be able to question them.

Good to hear about weapons from Russia. Another 100 Eskanders would be useful. And maybe some T90 tanks
