Al-Muri’iyya: It had to happen sooner or later. The rats of Aleppo got it about 30 times. Now, it was time for the rats of Dayr El-Zor who had managed to commit the signally egregious error of concentrating their forces and leadership in one area. Once the SAA had identified the crush of rats, it was only a matter of a few minutes before one of the conveniently placed helicopters at the Dayr El-Zor AB took off with a bomb. Flying at over 7,000 feet, the bombardier carefully calculated wind direction and speed to insure that as many rodents as possible were airlifted into the stratosphere of pulverized particles.
It is reported to us at SyrPer that over 160 rat carcasses were estimated spread all over the rural countryside. The SAA is particularly proactive here as the ISIS terrorists are finding out.
Sarja in the Al-Zaawiya Mountains: SAA confronted a pack of terrorists aboard 3 pickups, one with a 23mm cannon. The firefight was over in half an hour. 13 dead Nusra rats are on the ground. 7 surrendered or were taken wounded.
Saraaqeb: This mostly empty town is now in the crosshairs of the SAA. Expect some news over the next 2 weeks about its status. There is a large SAA force approaching.
