URGENT: The Nusra group and its allies have tasted a truly bitter defeat at the hands of militias defending the two Shi’i towns of Nibbul and Al-Zahraa`. With the Syrian Army and NDF now encircling the formerly besieging rodents, the situation has turned from dire into calamitous for the Nusra group led by the King Rat Abu Muhammad Al-Jawlaani.
Yesterday, Nusra risked hundreds of its rats in order to occupy the Al-Jood Factories overlooking Al-Zahraa` in the industrial sector. With the SAA firing artillery at them and dozens of superbly trained Hizbollah commandoes leading the militia attack, the Nusra effort collapsed on itself with the sounds of wounded rodents calling on open lines for help. When they tried to remove their wounded to the match factory they found themselves completely surrounded by a combination of NDF, Hizbollah and SAA infantrymen armed to the teeth. What happened during the last 5 hours is heartwarming. The SAA killed 77 rats inside the factory and took 19 wounded as prisoner.
Along with the disaster at the factory, the SAA destroyed 3 T-62 tanks which were stolen from the SAA months ago, a Fozdeka cannon atop a truck and a pickup with 23mm Doschka cannon.
Later, the rats tried to ram a truck loaded with TNT at the southeast entrance to Al-Zahraa` Industrial Zone in order to penetrate militia lines in the city. You know the story about trucks. They have a short life span. The militiamen opened anti-tank fire at the speeding vehicle and incinerated the driver inside a ball of intense flames.
A convoy speeding toward Al-Zahraa` with supplies and reinforcements was picked up by SAAF after an alert went out from MI. It began at Daaret ‘Izza with an all-foreign battalion of rodents mostly from Turkey and Chechnya. They were dry roasted on the road. According to Wael and another source in my wife’s family, the scene is one of unbelievable horror with carcasses exuding steam from fires that will not subside.
In Nibbul, we can confirm a full-blown general retreat from the area by the Nusra rodents who appear to be heading northward. It is not certain now where they are actually going.
We can confirm also the large number of wounded rodents being treated in the hundreds at make-shift field hospitals in Maayer, ‘Anadaan and Tal-Rif’aat. Most of the rodents are dying due to incompetent medical attention. There are attempts under way to take the seriously wounded to Turk hospitals where their death is absolutely certain.
THE SYRIAN ARMY HAS JUST COMPLETED A COMPLETE ENCIRCLEMENT FROM THE AL-JANDOOL ROUNDABOUT TO CASTILLO. IT IS TOTALLY UNDER SAA ARTILLERY CONTROL ENDING ALL SUPPLY LINES FROM TURKEY TO THE CITY.
THE SAA HAS ALSO REPORTEDLY STRENGTHENED ITS POSITIONS ON AL-‘UWAYJA HILL GIVING IT SUPERB BATTLEFIELD VISION OVER THE ENTIRE AREA.
Handaraat, Sayfaat, Khaan Toomaan: A major assault by SAA and NDF caught the rodents by surprise. Rat-supporting websites have listed the dead. We, too, have received names of some carcasses which contained valid SAR documents:

Mustafaa Makees (a/k/a “Abu Mujaahid)
Muhammad Ahmad Khaaled
Taareq Jum’ah ‘Uthmaan
‘Imaad Mahmoud Zhaafer

Another 32 carcasses were determined to be foreign.
