Aleppo Central Prison Completely Liberated !

10364352_10152436134616763_1219876300_n

 

 

I was out of the office today because of an important assignment.  I returned to find my desk and all my computers filled with reports which I must sort out tomorrow.

CONFIRMED, THE PRISON IS COMPLETELY FREED OF TERRORISTS.  THE ENTIRE AREA IS NOW UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE SYRIAN ARMY. We saw Lt. Yusuf among the officers who were filmed by SANA.  You cannot imagine the delight.  I will be posting everything tomorrow. Sorry about today. Ziad

 

20 May – Liberating Skeikh Najjar power plant and Qal’at Agop hill

The Army captured the Sheikh Najjar power plant and Qal’at Agop hill right next to it, which opened the way towards the central prison, bringing government troops to one kilometer from the prison complex. There were also reports that some troops had already arrived to reinforce the prison. After the capture of the hill, the military attacked the village of Haylan, which was the last insurgent stronghold before the prison.

21 MayLiberating Haylan and terrorists destroy al-Kindi hospital

The military captured Haylan, as government forces had broken through on the road leading to the prison. At the same time, insurgents blew up the al-Kindi hospital in fear it could be used for monitoring terrorists supply routes. Soon after, Army tanks had reached and taken up positions at about 500 meters from the prison complex. The area was witnessing heavy artillery shelling, with government troops dropping at least 30 barrel bombs from military helicopters over the previous 24 hours, as insurgent forces were fast retreating from the area due to the government’s superior firepower. During the two days of fighting, at least 50 rebels were killed.

22 May – The final liberation of Aleppo Central Prison

The Army had finally broken the siege of the prison as tanks and armored vehicles entered the complex. The Air Force dropped more than 100 barrel bombs during the final push to reach the prison.This put the north-east approach to Aleppo under the control of government forces. SAA used an effective flanking maneuvering attack from the southeast, southwest and northeast leaving the terrorists on their heels.

Personal thoughts

I was almost touched to tears. Literally struggling to find the right words. These brave soldiers suffered under daily shells, gunfire and suicide bombs. Supplies were delivered by helicopter and they ate once every other day. Clean water was scarce and they had no shaving gear available. They were besieged for more than 500 days. Their 24/7 was an absolute nightmare. Now they are free.

History will never forget the efforts of these brave hero’s!!

Syria have an own film-industrie. Hope to see a film about them and the defenders of Al-Kindi Hospital one day!

Syria should leave the Ruins of Al-Kindi Hospital as they are, as a war-grave and as a symbol for the senseless Destruction the Jihadies done to their Country. So that your children and their children can see what senseless religious hate do to a country. Just put up a stone/memorial in front of the ruins, where you can read the names of the Heros who stay there and lost their lives for Syria!

Leader of the Special Mission Forces who are beating the terrorists in Aleppo now, he is known as a veteran commander who never lost a battle, very beloved and trusted by his soldiers , even many SAA soldiers wish to fight under his command, so that’s why his men call themselves ” Tiger Forces “.

As a Christian (with an atheist/agnostic upbringing!) I definitly believe these patriotic soldiers got extra power from their faith in Allah. But that doesn’t diminishes in any way the bravery, love and manliness of these 100 (?) Syrian soldiers.

Amazing epicness to see that the tough battle finally ended……I’m sure most of us had seen rat’s videos assaulting the prison…and claimed….bla…bla…victory…bla…bla….(Remember that British white robbed suicide bomber ?)

Beside all this joy…. let’s not forget those brave warriors who defended al-Kindi hospital last year and finally were executed by Anus Rats……

al-Kindi fell, but those defenders put up a stiff & stubborn fight……

it does not necessarly have to be a large number. Jose Marti once said that the men who fight for a right cause and are totally behind it automaticly find the best positions on the battlefield. One Syrian soldier is worth more then a thousand rats ( in fact one syrian soldier is priceless) and the Syrian army is way smarter then their enemies and the enemy is aware of that.

Incredible (: what a day to remember!

Jbeileh (directly west), the Glass Factory (directly north), and Storage Facility (south west) of the prison are done for as well. Those 3 areas were the ones with direct militant fire at the prison – they have now been silenced.

This puts the enemy over 1 km away in every direction – hence the safety of the entire prison area and everything flat around it for a whole 1km.

This is such incredible news. I have been on tenterhooks for so long praying for this day. I often wondered what condition the prison was in on the inside, and how the prisoners were doing. Based on the video, it appears that even when the guards and army were under the most severe conditions, they didn’t neglect the prisoners, and kept them fed, and gave them enough water that they are in reasonably good condition. That shows that the army, and the government that runs the prison is principled, moral, and humane. Unlike the animals who besieged the prison. All… Read more »

Actually, food was regularly smuggled into the prison before the breaking of the siege partially a month ago. provisions were actually dropped in by aircraft and sometimes by armored convoys under heavy artillery cover. They looked pretty good but the problem of tuberculosis was prevalent. Ziad

i hope the SAA makes sure, that there are no tunnels and no tnt near or under the prison. The Terrorists cant fight as brave and coordinatet as the SAA, they have no Chance on the battelfield, but they can dig tunnels, and blow up buildings. So please SAA make sure there are no tunnels under the prison!! imagine what would happen if those fu**ing rats manage to blow up a part of, or the whole prison.

Such wonderful news, Congratulations SAA soldiers. What I was suprised to see that there were so many prisoners in there as well. How did they feed everyone over the last 500 odd days? Amazing if so many were actually inside the prison. Why didn’t the terrorists kill the prisoners or did the Obama wonderboys not penetrate deep enough into the grounds to get at them?
Love to be the one to tell this story in a film or doco.

There are 2,500 prisoners inside. There would have been more but for the fact that the Syrian government moved hundreds of the terrorists to other parts of Syria before the siege became entrenched. They fed everyone by rationing provisions dropped from aircraft and those delivered by armored convoys under heavy artillery cover. It was very dangerous work. Ziad
