IDLIB: HALLOOZ LIBERATED; RATS HIDING IN CHICKEN COOPS; THE NEWS FROM THE BASES AND DAYR EL-ZOR

الجيش السوري يبدأ المرحلة الثانية من عمليات القصير

 

IDLIB:

 

Hallooz Village:  A village nestled in the mountains just to the west of Jisr Al-Shughoor.  This is my wife’s mother’s home town.  It is totally Christian with most residents being related to one another. There is a church with a fountain that spews ice cold, crystal clear mountain spring water that is absolutely luscious.  It is no secret why rats from derelict nations like Libya, Saudi Arabia or Sudan would want to nest here and drive the indigenous Christians out.

Well, yesterday, a crack unit of paratroopers invaded the town at dawn and struck hard at a chicken hatchery killing every single miserable cockroach there.  Weapons and ammunition were seized and reserved for the Popular Defense Committees.  I have not received the names of the 14 vermin whose carcasses were quickly reduced to dust and ash.

 

Al-Jaanoodiyya Village:  Also, in the Jisr Al-Shughoor area.  The same unit of paratroopers put these rats to death:

Abu Al-Baraa` Al-Leebi (LIBYAN SNAKE SLIME AND PIGLET MOLESTER)

Abu Muhammad Al-Sa’oodi (SAUDI ARABIAN HOG LINT)

 

Kafr ‘Uwayd:  Near Ma’arrat Al-Nu’maan, 65kms from Idlib City.  In this area you find mostly Nusra, Jabhat Thuwwaar Sooriyya, Harakat Hazm, Ahraar Al-Shaam and Jund Al-Aqsa.  You find them here because they have safe houses in Turkey where they are protected by the Turk runt and mass murderer, Erdoghan.  Yesterday, in an operation linked to the upcoming assault on the Khaan Shaykhoon area, the SAA killed 6 Nusra rats.  I have no names.

 

The situation at the 2 military bases, Waadi Dhayf and Al-Haamidiyya, is murky.  It appears that the SAA left Waadi Dhayf to reinforce at Al-Haamidiyya.  I won’t write until I am certain about the events there.  I will transmit any information I get to you when I’m certain the information is accurate.

 

Darkoosh:  SAA clashed with Nusra rats here and killed a reported 4 while wounding an undisclosed number.  I have no names.

 

Mu’allali Village:  A number of vultures were killed along with the destruction of the van transporting them. No other details.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

DAYR EL-ZOR:  We are always delighted to report new alliances with the SAA.  Two days ago, we learned that 200 members of the large Shu’aytaat Tribe joined the PDC and are now helping to protect the city of Dayr El-Zor alongside the great Syrian Army.  As many of you know, this tribe was subjected to unspeakable brutality at the hands of the ISIS barbarians and their members are itching for revenge.  I wouldn’t want to be an ISIS prisoner in their hands any more than I’d want to be a Khwarezmian Shah in the hands of Genghiz Khan.     

 

Jafra Village:  The SAA has opened a new corridor into this important area, piercing ISIS defenses and killing a number of the rats.  Extremely heavy combat going on now.  No details are available yet.

 

Al-Huwayqa: NDF fought hand-to-hand combat with attacking ISIS rats who were only 20 meters away behind their fortifications.  No details.

 

MuHassan Town:  SAA artillery is shattering ISIS positions here as most of the population has departed.  Reports of Shu’aytaat tribesmen assisting the SAA by cleaning up areas.  This town is a C&C HQ for ISIS and its fall would be a boon to the SAA and the war against its savagery.

Much more than what we usually discuss here is going on internationally now, especially in the MSMedia, so let’s see what the real deal is – more obvious every day – Syria may just be able to bugger out of it alive, or maybe rather not.

Excellent news, may the corridor that links Idlib to Turkey be closed to rats, with Northern Aleppo-Turkey soon to be blocked, rats will rely on the Idlib border with Turkey for resupplies, may more villages be liberated so the blockade starts.

In Turkey a lot of people are uneducated and blind for what really is going on. They think what the AKP is telling them is right and they are the true believers and people from other sects are inferior so they support regime change in syria, They look on the syrian problem from the religious glasses. At least most of the AKP supporters . They dream about the big sunni ottoman imperium. I think nothing big really changed in their mind in the last centuries.

The military should not have any power what so ever… Thats against the idea of separation of powers. The military serves the peoples will and nothing more. They do not have “own interests”. No doubt that Turkey is not a democracy tho. It is unimaginable in a healthy democracy what erdoghan is doeing, wich is opress its people. From my point of view, Turkish poeple should rise against their government, because it lacks legitimacy and because it is a threat to everyone arround it.

The SAA has lost the two bases : Hamidiya and Wadi Deif. While in every war you win some and lose some, I still can’t believe that the SAA will withdraw fom these two bases, after three days of fighting. This pattern of fighting was acceptable in the early phases of the war, but at this point of the war , I find no justifications. One reason given was the poor weather which prevented the SAAF from acting. But surely the enemy concentrating this amount of troops and weapons SHOULD have been detected by the SAA.

You cannot fight a war half-heartedly. In the middle of a war, you cannot worry about what happens to the infrastrucre as a result of the fighting. These rats are sometimes successful because for them is kill or get killed. They want prevail at any cost. SAA cannot fight the battles, avoiding the destruction of infrastructure, such as bridges or hospital . If, and when we win the war we will be rebuild it.
These hospitals are only caterring and taking care of wounded rats, why keep them?

Hannibal; sometimes it is best to avoid a fight. Sun Tzu says {If your enemy is in superior strength, evade him…} Sun Tzu also says: “He who tries to defend everything, defends nothing.” SAA + SaaF proved they could keep those bases, as they have withstood for 2.5 years of non stop siege, suicide attacks, etc. I agree with the decision to withdraw, as saa is involved on 3 very difficult and super active fronts Aleppo, Deir-Zur, Sheikh Miskin. Nevertheless; I too sometimes wonder about SaaF capabilities… The fact those militants are bunching up like they show us on videos… Read more »

Anon : I agree that it is better to avoid certain battles, but not in this case, because of the strategic importance of these two camps. In my earlier posting I was suggesting that the SAA, withdraw from Raqqa and Deir Zor , because I thought that these two locations are not vital and will not affect the course of the war.
Losing Raqqa to the rats, did not influence the course of the war ( withdrawing will have saved SSA soldiers lives which were unnecassarily sacrifieced).

Deir ez Zur is most strategic from all those; much more than these two camps. It is the capital city of the province that is richest in hydro-carbons. Not to mentions it being on the only source of water; as well as the key urban area for hundreds of miles. As a matter of fact, these two camps are isolated points, very hard to defend, and very hard to supply. Still, saa defenders did a great job for long, long time; and JAN kept increasing its fighters for over 2 years. So, it took Nusra over 2 or 2.5 years… Read more »

All of these countries plus the other BRICs countries and developing countries can do a lot of business together and help protect each other.

Infact the trade deceased between them and increased with the US.

In light of prevalence of tow missiles and other guided weapons; could Syrians start a reward program for any-1 who hands over an atgm missile to authorities, gets amnesty and $1,500 for each missile?

The situation is that the SAA may close the circle around Aleppo as they please. Whether the SAA is going to close it or lift the siege on Nubol and Zhara is up for speculation. In case of encirclement they will either come from Sheik Najjar and push towards the city center or advance from Handarat towards Blleramoon. Tricky situation for the aggressors. However, the syrian command will take the right decision at the right time.

Yes, they may still have a relatively endless supply of cannon fodder but that is no use unless they are equipped with the necessary firepower to succeed and all the evidence to date shows that they cannot bring the necessary firepower to bear.

It’s my hunch that when the ISIS operation went south, the two hundred men were verbally ordered back to Raqqah to regroup, or for re-assignment; that commander was subsequently killed in action and could not be reached to verify the authenticity of the order, so somebody in Raqqah thought it was a golden opportunity to just kill some more.
