Nahla Village: In an ambush that has become a staple of the Army’s enhanced tactical repertoire, the SAA mined the main route into the town with remotely controlled explosives and awaited patiently the inevitable caravan of carcasses which was to dot the landscape of this fertile stretch of Syrian soil noted for its orchards. When the convoy traversed the entire length of the mined area, the field commander gave the order to pop the mines hurling rodent carcasses into the air as high as 30 feet. Needless to say, no rat survived the operation. Early field assessment gave a count of 47 dead vermin. All were Nusra.
Qar’ Al-Ghazaal: Heavy fighting with Nusra trying to hold on to territory at all costs. Fighting is continuing as we write.
Abu Dhuhoor area: More fighting with SAA gaining ground in small measurements. No details.
The fighting in the Eastern Ghoutaa is diminishing and with that comes greater flexibility in deploying additional forces to the one area which Saudi Arabia, arch-terrorist supporter and leading reactionary society, has designated as its own theater in Syria. Some readers, who are clearly trolls or the enemies of the Syrian people, have falsely spread a rumor that the terrorist rats of Nusra have retaken Nawaa. SyrPer disputed this and it turns out were correct. Nawaa is firmly in the hands of the SAA with the Nusra rodents still trying to penetrate its perimeter. That may become much more difficult as specialized forces are deployed into the area from both Damascus and Idlib/Hama. Reports remain unconfirmed that the “Tiger Force” led by Col. Suhayl Al-Hassan has been ordered into the area to help finish off the rats.
The Syrian Ministry of Defense has pooh-poohed Arabian propaganda reports of Nusra’s takeover of Al-Shaykh Miskeen. The reports are typical of the simian thought processes which dominate the minds of these rats. The town is mostly in the hands of the SAA with some quarters infested with rodents. This will not last long.
