ISIS NOT HOLDING OUT AS SYRIAN ARMY BLASTS ITS POSITIONS; NEW POPULAR FORCES REGIMENT GRADUATES FOR WAR AGAINST NATO TERRORISM

لواء عسكري شعبي جديد مؤيد للجيش العربي السوري لتحرير الغوطة الشرقية!

DAYR EL-ZOR:

There’s a reason why ISIS is imposing mandatory conscription in areas they control.  The reason is that ISIS is dying.  Losses at every turn have demoralized thousands of their formerly zealous recruits and volunteers and now, ISIS, feeling a shortfall in its ranks as both the Syrian and Iraqi armies lay waste to their Xanadu in Hell.

 

‘Ayyaash Village:  ISIS bet big on this area with its largest fuel dump only 10kms away from the Syrian Army in the City of Dayr El-Zor.  But, after 3 days of attacks to restore the fuel dump along the West Line and Tayyim Line, their offensive imploded.  We can confirm the death of over 200 ISIS killers over the last 3 days as spotters assess the carnage.  Here are the only Syrians identified so far:

Mu’tazz Ahmad ‘Issaawi

‘Awadh Muhammad ‘Awadh

Radhwaan Hilaal Bu-Majeed

Ahmad Nooreddeen Hammaad

Luqmaan Shafeeq Ja’dan

‘Ali ‘Umar Al-Shaykh-Hassan

Thaabit ‘Abdu Mukhtaar

No other names have arrived so far.

 

Tal-Al-Hajeef Village:  This is near ‘Ayyaash.  Another attack on the Radio and Television Station was pushed back by a combination of Shu’aytaat tribesmen, PDC and the SAA.  The number of ISIS terrorists killed exceeds 20 but the area is still too dangerous to investigate.

 

Al-Bughayliyya:  Another miserable and ill-advised attack on this village liberated only a few days ago by the SAA was a lead balloon as 10s of ISIS heretics were gunned down by the forces of the Syrian people.  A pickup with 23mm cannon was vaporized and 3 pickups with high caliber machine guns were also destroyed.  The carcasses remain on the ground as of this writing.

 

Al-‘Ashshaara Town:  Evidently, you just can’t drive a car safely any more if you’re a member of the ISIS morals police, the hated “Al-Hisba”.  Last night, while on their way to flush out some den of iniquity, they went POOF! right in the air as a 65kg IED exploded in their car.  The notorious morals police (Al-Mutaawa’ah) of Saudi Arabia might start wondering if their cars will start to go up in a mist soon also what with all this talk about morality and terrorism.  Hmmm. The IED was placed by SAA-MI operatives.

 

Heavy fighting continuing as more residents give intelligence to the SAA in order to be rid of the rats sent by NATO, and especially the criminal regime in Ankara:  Al-Jubayla, Al-Rushdiyya, Al-‘Urfi, Al-Sinaa’ah, Al-Huwayqa. These foreign cannibals were killed yesterday by the SAA and its Syrian allies:

Sufyaan Abu-Taalib (EGYPTIAN COCKROACH)

‘Uthmaan Abu Qataada (Id pending. TUNISIAN SALAMANDER SLIME)

“Abu Mustafaa” (TUNISIAN INTESTINAL PARASITE)

“Abu Ahmad” (LIBYAN MONKEY-RAT CLONE)

Bandar Al-Shammari (SAUDI PUS ADDICT)

DAMASCUS:

sana.sy 1000

A NEW ARMY MADE UP OF MOSTLY LOCAL PEOPLE AND FORMER TERRORISTS LINKED TO NUSRA, JAYSH AL-ISLAM AND AHRAAR AL-SHAAM, HAVE BEEN GRADUATED FROM THEIR BASIC TRAINING PROGRAM.  THE 7,000-MAN ARMY IS COMMITTED TO ERASING THE PLAGUE OF JIHADISM, TAKFIRISM AND SALAFISM FROM THE ENTIRE GHOUTAA AREA, IF NOT THE WHOLE WORLD.  There is a crucial element to this new force: because they’re local, they know every nook and cranny.  They are indigenous to our lands and with their new awareness of the conspiracy against their people and culture, we can expect ferocious fighting and, as I have been told, a focus on killing Zahraan ‘Alloosh, viewed universally now as the Devil incarnate.  The force is called the Jaysh Al-Wafaa` (Army of Faithfulness) or Liwaa` Al-Wafaa` (Brigade of Faithfulness).  We will refer to them by the former as JW.

 

We can confirm the death of a major figure in the Jaysh Al-Umma (Abu Subhi Taahaa) at the hand of ‘Alloosh’s Jaysh Al-Islam.  This occurred on January 7, 2015.  We expect ‘Alloosh to follow soon, unless, as we now believe, he is now working with the Syrian Army in order to save his own bacon.

 

Harastaa:  SAA artillery scored a direct hit on a explosives warehouse near the Salaahuddeen Mosque causing some interesting fireworks to entertain the residents.

 

Doumaa:  The Big Push started on January 7, 2015 from multiple angles with a combination of SAA and PDC.  ‘Alloosh continues to negotiate.  The SAA continues to reject his proposals.  He now wants to fight with the SAA against ISIS.

 

Tal-Kurdi:  Big numbers of dead ‘Alloosh felons in the NE Doumaa area.  Getting warmer.

 

Al-‘Aaliya Farms:  This is ‘Alloosh’s last stand. SAA killed 16 of his killers over the last 5 days right here.

 

Al-Shifooniyya (Chiffoniere) Road east of Doumaa:  More ‘Alloosh nests uprooted and destroyed.  The rats are shivering.

Hi Ziad, tks for the up date and news. Just trying to understand this new armed group Jaysh Al-Wafaa` that you have mentioned, are they a new militia, part of NDF or a new SAA regiment or brigade ? It seems a hell of good idea and the extra manpower is extremely welcome.

Nobilitatus: From the rather scant description, they sound to be more in the nature of the ‘RufPufs’ (Regional Forces/Popular Forces), which knew every inch of their home territories and defended them, not participating in offensive operations outside their home turf. I guess we’ll get a better picture as time goes on. I wish them well, and good hunting, of course.

Bogdanov meets the Syrian ambassador to Russia once again to ‘discuss preparations for the conference later this month’, this is constant diplomatic pressure and harassment under the guise of ‘solving crisis’, such behaviour from the Putin regime officials has now gone beyond even diplomatic norms. What is the cause of this agitation and urgency on the part of Bogdanov and Lavrov in ‘settling the Syrian crisis’ for their Yanki masters?

You don’t understand the significance of the deal with Turkey and the Chinese support -de facto declaring they will replace the World Bank as Russia’s lender of last resort. This barred the US/the hedge funds from achieving their goal and takes away from the US its ultimate financial weapon.

David, you are right, Russia’s debt is around $500-600Bi, on the concept of gross debt, but the net debt, discounting reserves is anywhere btw $100-$200Bi, this is closer to 5-10% GDP. So even the gross debt is extremely manageable at 25-30% GDP. There are another elements of all this, Russia is one of the top gold producers, technically it is in 2nd place sharing this position with Australia and US. Russia’s oil and gas exports are a natural hedging itself, meaning the Ruble-USD currency fluctuation is neutralized with additional Ruble to the domestic market.

China has interest in continuing the current business model that is delivering consumer goods to the “West” (and all the other countries). It wants to control resources.

Of course it’s Realpolitik but they are forced together by the increasingly desperate actions of the western bank empire.

While you are right it is still good that they act from time to time.

Real activity comes from Hezbollah. I hope that when the time is right all the non-Islamist communities will join the fight. The Islamist danger goes against any minority and cannot be directed against the “others”.
The first step has to be to reunite the Palestinians with the resistance. Then there are Christians, Druze and secular Sunnis. Lets see how it plays out. It is deeply connected with the situation in Syria.

Re nobilitatis on China — agression: please specify your disagreement.
If you refer to Tibet then consider that the Chinese could not afford to let the US get a foothold there when they were already encircling China. It has been called the biggest defeat for the CIA in the 20th century.
and yes history shows that they have never sought an empire even in times when they were technologically superior – the contrast to Europe is striking. You are the one that needs to consult a history book.

The point is that you do not bother to look up in a history book. Even today China takes over territory in aggressive ways.

Think apart from the invasions of Tibet and East Turkestan, apart from ambitions about Hongkong, Macao and Taiwan and go to the wars with Vietnam, with India and Pakistan.
