AL-SHAA’ER MOUNTAIN RAT FREE; SYRIAN ARMY BLASTS ISIS AT HAYYAAN FIELD

تدمير 3 عربات مزودة برشاشات ثقيلة.. الجيش السوري يتقدم في حقل حيان بريف تدمر

HOMS:  JUST CONFIRMED.  THE SYRIAN ARMY HAS RETAKEN ALL AREAS AROUND AL-SHAA’ER MOUNTAIN INCLUDING ALL OIL FIELDS.  As I write to you, the SAA is moving methodically into the area of the Hayyaan Field where ISIS is making its last stand before the extermination that is imminent.

 

Bombers are flying out of the Al-Tayfoor Airbase to shellac ISIS positions.  We can confirm the deaths of 22 rodents and the destruction of 3 pickups with 23mm cannons at Hajjaar Village.  Intercepted communications describe a hopeless situation with one Iraqi-accented vulture begging a commander in the Albukamaal area to send reinforcements “immediately or Assad’s kaafers will kill us all”.  Indeed.  For those of you who see a comparison to Tabqa AB, let me disabuse you now of any such hallucinations.  Be careful what you read in the propaganda-laden western media.

We can also confirm SAA presence now in Zamla Mountain (Al-Mahr Field) where an attempted infiltration toward Al-Rawdha Hills was intercepted and destroyed.  The rats fled to Zhuhoor Abu-Nakhla where 32 of them were killed by both SAA and SAAF.  All were non-Syrian ISIS.

 

Al-Rastan:  At the Sharkasi Palace, SAA attacked a pack of rodents and killed them all:

Muheeb Al-Haddaad

‘Abdu Jammaaliyya

The other 5 were not named.

 

West Al-Rastan Dam:  An attack on guards at the dam was repulsed. No details.

 

Dayr Fool:  The SAA pulverized a pickup with 23mm cannon that was moving toward Al-‘Aamiriyya.  No details.

 

Fighting reported here: Jibaab Hamad, Al-Tadmuriyya, Hawsh Hajju, South ‘Ayn Hussayn, Talbeesa, Al-Tayyiba, Khirbat Al-Duwaybi, Al-Mushrifa, NE Al-Mas’oodiyya.

my opinion is that has no sense to fortify these wells .. There are in the middle of nothing in the desert .. The three heights on small hills are vulnerable on the air raids and the artillery .. The way Palmyra -homs can not be controled by the isis because the haven’t coverage in that post.. The attempts of ISIS to capture the oil fields, looking for distracting forces of SAA from hama and Deir-ezzor .. But in the end those who have moved forces from hama and Deir ezzor were the terrorists .. With bad results .. Yesterday… Read more »

Great news from Homs!

I would hope the Tiger and the special forces would destroy the terroirsts in north eastern Homs and south eastern Hama but i guess they will reduce the pressure once the Tadmur road, the oil and gas fields and Tiyas are secured.

It is a great set back for ISIL, it couples with the on going kick in the butt on Der Ez Zor, in few strikes the SAA has shown the world that the bases lost in Raqqa were part of a specific strategy to strengthen the core for later advances, it is working. May the SAA clean Homs and Hama from ISIL rats, village by village until none is left. It is never food to ISIL in your back door. Cheers for the SAA, NDF and the Syria militias.

Canthama, I gave it a thought. Why hit the the north/eastern Homs area and capture some oil wells while knowing (from an earlier experience) the SAA would not accept you to keep that territory. Certainly if you take into account what amount of troops/armour ISIS is/was sending and the lack of reinforcements (something ISIS normally always do). They sent enough to overrun initially (the power of surprise); not enough to hold the gained ground. So the goal was never to obtain a decisive victory. Rather to skip attention. In my eyes ISIS is not stupid enough to lack a greater… Read more »

Hi Kjel, ISIS was ISI (Islamic State of Iraq) and developed out of AQI (Al-Quaeda in Iraq). The Al-Nusra Front was founded by ISI/ISIS/AQI to be the syrian arm of the database army (many say that Al-Quaeda was the name of the database (a list) of fighters in Afghanistan fighting the Russians). So the database, ISIS and Al-Nusra are all connected and it is not surpricing that one would help another, merge with the other or maybe do some minor fighting so you have nice press and “non-lethal” lethal aid from the West. One could question if each of this… Read more »

My thoughts are the following : Looking on facts as it is now, such as the battle of Der Ez Zor, the Aleppo encirclement, the yet to happen battle for to clean Idlib Province from rats, the ISIL advance toward Kobani, Al Hasaka Province silent steuggles and finally East Ghout rat free battle.

Hi all, map freaks folks, see new one fro Aleppo, check on the Al Ameria in the SW where it lays on SAA hand plus the Al Castelo ring in green. The key is that the road, still not fully taken, is under SAA fire control, meaning rats would have troubles in re supplying from that road. There is gossip on the net about the Kurds will let re supplies to come and go through Sheikh Maksoud, a very risky decision from the Kurds IF proved true, on the other side fire control of Al Castelo would mean that route… Read more »

For many readers of SYRPER that expected the Kurds of YPG enter in reason and put aside the Syrian government, that YPG have reached agreement on Sheikh Maqsood enable the FSA to transport their supplies puts them on the side of the terrorists, which also occurs in Ayn al Arab (Kobane). It only remains to ask how they will behave in Qamishli and Hasakah. It is possible that this has been one of the conditions of the FSA to send (a few) men to Kobane, the truth was not worth, within weeks the SAA will close the Siege of Aleppo… Read more »

Cataro, that is a good point, it may be part of deal due to the symbolic FSA PR help in Kobani. My guts are telling me they are playing both sides in Aleppo, Leith’s comment on a condition not to involve other rat faction on the supply line may give us some hinch on what they have in mind on the double play.
In Hasaka the SAA, NDF and YPG are working nicely together, they liberated few villages from ISIL this past wekkend, so far the relationship has been very good in Hasaka.

The Kurds first refused the FSA, so that was probably a condition of the US or Turks. We all know that the Kurds play all sides at all times, but being split over three countries as they are, that must be expected. I cannot see them work with the Turks in the long run.

You may be very right, Catharo, In my opinion the governments of F-UK-US and Turkey have put a maximum of pressure on the YPG-Kurds to open up their lines in Sheikh Maqsood for the FSA-rats, and maybe using Ayn al Arab (Kobani) as a trade or “hostage”. It might have worked, though I hope the Kurds know better for their own sake. Note that Hollande and his P.M. Fabius wrote an article in the Washington-Post (this paper will one day be edited in rolls and tear-off format to ease toilet-visitors) to ask the US to bomb Aleppo since “the city… Read more »

There was a problem beetwen YPG, FSA and Turkish Army on the border to Kobane. YPG refuseed to let the FSA inside kobane at this time the Peshmerga was waiting in Suruc. This was a condition of the Turkish army to let the Peshmerga inside Kobane. This is also the reason why Peshermga was waiting 3 days long in Turkey before entering Kobane.

Let us not underestimate what happened here. It is not about successfully repelling an assault on one mountain or gas field. This was a huge operation attacking about 7-8 major targets ranging from the airport on the eastern edge of Palmyra to the T4 airbase 50-60 km to the west and on various oil and gas installations 25-30 km to the north of Palmyra, as well as the strategically vital Syriatel Hill. All attacks failed. No doubt many of them were feints to disguise the main objective, which we still don’t know for certain. What we do know is that… Read more »

In few months two similar attacks from ISIS, had the same answer by the army.. According to me the army has left the advance of the Islamic forces and regrouping them on the desert of the oil fields.. The Syrians Forces has not struck the movements of Isis before their attaching and it seems me strange that have not seen the groups of Isis in the desert… Instead have eliminated all… Read more »

Thank you for the response Johny. We are just like spectators at a football match, wondering what is the game plan of the managers.

But it is certain that SAA military intelligence now knows what ISIS is up to in the region, knows their MO and probably has a very good idea what they will do next and when.

They have defeated them (routed them) twice and can do so again if necessary. The heartening thing is that they were able to defeat ISIS here without slackening the offensive on the same vermin in Deir Ezzor and elsewhere.

No news from Lattakia, but no surprise here, the terrain is nasty, if the SAA or NDF goes full force they will get it all clean but casualties will be way to high and I believe it is unaceptable at current conditions. A recent Syrian officer comment says there are currently 700 fronts in Syria, that is quite crazy to manage isn’t it ? I bet the SAA or NDF will cut supply routes to those villages and try to starve them or deprive from re supplies during the winter, then there is always a breakthrough and all hell breaks… Read more »

Canthama,

The terrain in Lattakia is harsh. So, just like the Qalamoun, they do not fight them ‘in the open’ but wait when the weather brings much stress to the rebels entrenched. The winter brings real nasty colds. Besides no real big strategical goals are to be achieved (compared to Aleppo/Idlib-Hama-Aleppo highway) in the ‘short’ run.

My ten cents ;),

What is the altitude up there? I am guessing it is pretty high and it probably gets cold at night. Not as high as Afghani mountains but pretty high up there.

Highest pick close to 1600 mts, it may not be that high but with the chain so close to the ocean, it becomes freezing cold and enjoy snow in some moments during winter, the wind is a factor here.

Bigger map and latest battle plan for Aleppo encirclement, Leith and Peto did pretty good on the map, follow the red arrows and Leith’s rational to understand exactly how this encirclement is being approached now. I take the Kurds decision to help the FSA on resupplies as a very risky one, I understand they play both sides and they have survived at Sheikh Maqsoud almost intact this whole mess, so why now take the risk once the SAA is about to encircle Aleppo ? Anyway, Leith may be write, it may be rats last hope, but then again if the… Read more »

Yay! 🙂 This uplifts my spirit, knowing that the good guys are winning 🙂 Seeing how effectively the SAA has defended Deir-ezzor and Kuweyres, I’m now convinced that the withdrawal from Taqba was a strategic move by the SAA as if anticipating the American air bombing on the IsIs stronghold in Raqqa, therefore relying on the Imperialist air bombing to keep Raqqa under pressure while the SAA employed much needed resources on other fronts. Sadly, a lot of good SAA men were martyred and didn’t live to fight and pump lead into IsIs savages for another day.

Nusra or Islamic Front (sorry don’t understand the real difference) have menaged to get their dirty ape hands on some TOW dispatched by Uncle Obongo somewhere in Idlib province, as Ziad have stated. It would be nice if SAA could profit by this chance to defeat the jihadists there and take those ATGM. They would be extremely useful.
