DAMASCUS: SYRIAN ARMY AND HZB CONQUER ALL RA`S AL-MA’ARRA; AMERICAN-SUPPORTED TERRORISTS IN DISARRAY

هل بدأ الجيش السوري معركة القلمون؟

The sudden joint Syrian/Lebanese attack on positions long-held by the Alqaeda/Nusra terrorists has resulted in some very interesting developments.  Based on Ba’ath Party sources and Monzer’s memos to me, it appears the rats were not prepared for the kind of invasion they saw in the areas of the Qalamoon which have been liberated.  It took the Syrian Army and its Lebanese allies in Hizbollah months to prepare for this.  There had to be coordination of secure communications between the units of the SAA and those of HZB.  There were training programs on new weapons and techniques.  And there had to be a successful disinformation campaign conducted by the SAA to give the rats the impression that nothing was coming soon.  Hence, their complete lack of preparedness.  And don’t ever get the impression the commanders on the ground aren’t smart and professional – nobody is going to give the terrorists an opportunity to regroup in order to launch a revanchist attack on previously lost positions.  It is the opinion of SyrPer that the terrorist presence in both Lebanon’s eastern mountains abutting Syria and those on the Syrian side is at a crucial end.  Oh, they will try to come back, but, judging by the denigration of their capabilities and concomitant destruction of morale, it is highly unlikely.  Expect more vilification and mutual accusations of treason from the terrorists.

 

Ra`s Al-Ma’arra:  COMPLETELY RAT FREE AS OF THIS MORNING.  The SAA and its HZB allies have scored a spectacular victory here liberating over 78 square kilometers of territory once dominated by noisome, plague-carrying rodents who flaunted their alliance with the Zionist Ghetto State and the simian regimes of the Arabian Peninsula.

 

Faleeta:  This village on the border of the Lebanon has been a major conduit for the transportation of enemy weapons and rats.  The SAA has reported major advances west of the village in an effort to finally close all avenues of infiltration.  According to Monzer, there are scores of dead rats rotting in the countryside with nobody having the will to pick them up for disposal.

The Jordanian Front is an unmitigated flop thanks to the Jordanian ninnies populating the corridors of inefficiency and mental retardation.  Anybody who takes advice from a Jordanian military man should all orifices examined for contamination.  The Southern Front is a disaster.

 

Muhijja Village:  West of the Der’ah International Highway, the SAA killed 13 rodents and sent the rest scurrying back to their Jordanian babysitters.

The rest were all foreigners who could not be identified.

 

Al-Faqee’ Village:  On the Old Der’ah Road.  The SAA had been conducting long-term surveillance over a group of Nusra hyenas who, eventually, were activated by some communication.  The trap was set and 9 were killed.   No other details.

 

West Al-Ghaariyya on the International Highway.  More rodents bite the dust.  Here, 4 surrendered in the hope of gaining Amnesty.

 

Kafr Shams:  Nusra and Harakat Al-Muthannaa Al-Islaamiyya took a hit here from the SAAF.  No other details.

 

Fighting reported here:  Tal ‘Ayn Faada, Lesser Tal Mutawwaq, Al-Thurayyaa, Al-Karak, Old Customs Building, Abu Bakr Mosque in the city, Al-Shiyyaah Well

 

Der’ah City:  A nest of vipers belonging to Nusra/Alqaeda and another belonging to Liwaa` Tawheed Al-Janoob and another belonging to Kateebat Madfa’iyyat Sijjeel and another belonging to Kataa`ib Mujaahidiyy Hawraan were all destroyed.  The number of dead,according to Monzer, is over 44 as of the assessment this Saturday morning.

Good news. The SAA has repelled the enemy attack on Palmyra and is counterattacking enemy positions outside the city. Another counterattack has positioned the armed forces outside Al-Sikhanah.

Keep faith and trust in the SAA!

In this video Hezbollah detonates a booby-trapped car rigged with explosives:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Brc7wQbB524

Why don’t use that against rebels checkpoints or buildings to penetrate enemy defense?
Why don’t use that against them?
No need a suicide driver, just a big brick on the accelerator on straight roads or make it drive it from someone who will throw himself out of the car after a safe distancefrom the enemy is passed so the car will reach the target by inertia?

Make more ATGM decoys, especially fuel trucks. You can easily convert cars, pickups and put them around front lines as decoy fuel trucks. Was thinking of this some days ago already. But here is a movie.

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=ac7_1431789455

ATGM (Anti Tank Guided Missile) being used against a fuel truck. Would cost you 100-500 dollars to make a dummy (decoy) fuel truck. Paint it white. Then put them on the front lines. No need to have anyone inside. Just drive them there as ATGM magnets then leave them as sitting ducks waiting for ATGM.

Make fuel truck decoys! Many of them! Hundreds! Thousands.

Hezbollah detonates a pickup truck packed with 500 kg of explosives. It would have cause quite a bit of devastation and killed many innocent civiliansterrorists had VBIEDs ready to kill innocent civilians in the Qalamoun.

Hi Ziad, only good news from Qalamun, what a blitzkrieg this one, amazing progress, may Syria and Hizballah go all the way down to the last rat, so this area can be finally rat free and Syria may find its back strong to advance toward other fronts without concerning with the western part of Damascus to be vunerable.

Finally! The Americans have “stepped up to the plate” to help Assad. Taking out a key ISIS leader Friday night. I would bet a pot belly pig that within three or four months the 10th Mountain Division is engaged in Western Syria. Obama cannot stick his head in the sand much longer. Assad may find that the Americans are the ones to save his bacon .

what’s up with this purported assassination attempt on Assad? Why would they send the French officers back, why not give them the appropriate sentence? And why are Kurds trying to kill Assad? I thought they had a hard enough time dealing with IS?

I should not be reading BBC but that Jim Muir fellow says that Dr. Assad is like a boxer “on the ropes” and close to collapse at any time. Believe me SyPer fans, the last thing the real American govt wants is for Dr. Assad to collapse and leave no central govt in Damascus. Ignore Psaki and the wobbling heads or what they or any politician says in public. “Welcome” has contacted me and told me to apologize to Thucydides for my unkind remark. I was wrong Thucydides and your opinion matters.

downed Syrian aircraft was a drone it seems.

Syrian forces kill 40 IS militants in Deir al-Zour http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2015-05/16/c_134244873.htm DAMASCUS, May 16 (Xinhua) — The Syrian government forces killed as many as 40 terrorists with the Islamic State (IS) group, including a commander responsible for oil-related affairs, in a “qualitative” operation in the oil-rich province of Deir al-Zour in eastern Syria, the official Syrian TV reported Saturday. The Syrian troops killed the 40 terrorists near the al-Omar oil field in the countryside of Deir al-Zour, the TV said, adding that the so-called “IS minister of oil,” who goes by the alias of Abu al-Taim al-Saudi, was among those killed.… Read more »

From the Associated Press: [U.S. commandos mounted a rare raid into eastern Syria overnight, killing a senior Islamic State commander in a firefight, capturing his wife and rescuing a Yazidi woman held as a slave, the Pentagon said Saturday.

In a behind-the-scenes snapshot of the painstaking care invested into the masterly IS video productions, we here see some ISGF* captives receiving training to respond “Baqiyah!” to “Dawlah Islamiyah!” for a PR snuff movie … unfortunately, this lot are very slow in the uptake and can expect a particularly short career in film.
