In one massive swoop, elements of the First Army Corps and the Republican Guard backed by Ba’ath Party militia and NDF, deracinated the remnants of all J.N. groups and the few FSA elements still left in this suburb closely associated with the Yarmouk Palestinian Camp-City. It’s over. It is now habitable and rodent-free. I will be receiving rat-stats tomorrow.
WATCH CAREFULLY FOR A NEW OFFENSIVE BY THE SAA ALL OVER THE WESTERN RURAL AREAS. ZABADAANI IS NEXT ON THE MENU. THE RATS CANNOT GET MORE SUPPLIES. IT’S HUIS CLOS!!
IT’S NOW OFFICIAL: ALL OF THE JABAL KHAMEES AREA OF NORTHERN LATAKIA IS NOW RAT-FREE! RATTEN-REIN!!
Al-Hulwa Town: The SAA bolstered by very experienced militia and NDF astounded a large convergence of rats (many were Turkmen) by taking the high ground and pummeling them with light artillery supported by Hind helicopter gunships. When the carcasses were found strewn all over the empty orchards, this was the result:
Muhammad Hussayn Tabanja
Muhammad Ameen Tabanja
Another group belonging to the Al-Qaeda franchise, Jabhat A-Nusra, was west of the first group and was made up of mostly foreigners. These are the only names out of the 26 which were collected. 12 were taken prisoner:
Baheej Muhammad Sarafandi
“Abu-Khaaled Al-Leebi” (LIBYAN RAT SPUTUM. Id pending.)
Majeed Mahmoud Subh
“Abu Baybars Al-Sheeshaani” (CHECHEN GNAT DROPPING. Id pending)
Ahmad ‘Aamer Al-Jaaroodi
HOMS: Not much fighting in Homs yesterday or today. The scene in the countryside is reportedly more halcyonic evidencing SAA victories over the rat infestations with families returning to inspect their homes.
Al-Hoola: Remnant rodents with no place to hide were surrounded and made a part of the landscape:
‘Awadh Khaaled Muhammad Al-Dasooqi (EGYPTIAN ASP EXCREMENT)
Mahmoud Saaem Al-Haamed (JORDANIAN LEECH SLIME)
‘Aaref Jaassem Al-Mansoor (PALESTEEZIAN GRUB SPITTLE)
Jaaber Mahfoozh ‘Abdul-Noor
Saari Muhammad Al-Fuqahaa’
Nazeeh Hilaal Al-Musaddaq
Another attempt to smuggle weapons into this SAA-controlled city failed miserably at the Al-Siyaasiyya Bridge. In a spot-on reprise of a similar “swarm” type effort to infiltrate some vehicles out of the ten sent in sporadically to “fool” guards, MI sent a heads-up and scuppered the entire operation brilliantly. All 10 cars were seized with weapons, C-4, grenades and some light assault rifles. 7 rats were killed and of them, only 4 carried valid identification. Another 6 were taken prisoner:
Muhssen Fareed ‘Abdul-Daayem
Muhammad Hassan Kallaas
Ja’afar Hameed Al-Ahmadi
Maazen Talaal Al-Shaykhli
Khaaled Jamaal Al-Hassaani
‘Aayedh Hamza Al-Khaaled (SANA)
Al-Sinaa’ah: SAA raid nets these:
Jaassem Muhammad Al-Ghadheeb
Yazan ‘Abdul-Salaam (SANA)
MAJOR LOSS TO JABHAT AL-NUSRA COMMAND STRUCTURE IN DAYR EL-ZOR CITY. SAA AND GENERAL SECURITY SURROUNDED A SAFE HOUSE INHABITED BY J.N. RODENTS. When they would not emerge peacefully, Special Forces teams invaded the premises and killed:
‘IMAAD AL-AHMAD AL-HAMD of the “Al-Mustafaa Brigades” (yawn). He was a battle “coordinator” who was highly valued by his fellow vermin. His companions shared his luck and awakened in Old Scratch’s Casino on the Styx :
Hussayn ‘Ali Al-Shawbari
‘Umar Hanoon Al-Sinaan
Muraad ‘Abdul-Raheem Qallaabaat
‘Urwa (?) Al-Asmar
“Abu-Al-Fidaa'” (id pending)
I have no rat-stats; only reports of fighting from SANA. I have only one report from Wael who is now back from Al-Haffa at his office in Latakia:
Kafr Shalaayaa: 30 anti-tank mines are confiscated.
Al-Ways Factory Road between Saraaqeb and Harnaboosh
Dear Readers, I will be going to the family dacha tomorrow with a Syrian friend who is starting a medical career in our area. I’ll be back on Saturday or Sunday and will post all items accordingly. Ziad
