LATAKIA: ALQAEDA SUFFERS HUGE LOSSES AS SYRIAN MILITARY CHOKES OFF ESCAPE ROUTES

army 3

LATAKIA:  The Syrian military continued its slow advance in the rugged mountains of northeastern Latakia Province by turning the area of Marj Khawkha into a mass graveyard for terrorist rats serving the interests of Butcher Erdoghan and his Saudi pedophile allies.  Yesterday, the SAAF took off from an airbase 5 kms west of Samaka in Tartous Province and bombarded the squirming vermin as they were trying to establish fortifications.  There has been a formidable effort to increase rat forces here in the Salmaa area.  Salmaa is a Kurdish town, by the way, so, put the pieces together.   All the dead, according to intercepted satellite communications, were foreigners:

“Abu ‘Uthmaan Al-Tajeeki” (TAJIK TURK TOAD. Id pending.  That might be difficult.  Once communication indicated he was shot in the head by a fellow terrorist because he was burning alive in his own juices.  He can now burn in Hell.)

Ma`moon Al-Hutur (LEBANTEEZIAN LIZARD)

The total number killed was 7 with 28 wounded.

Al-Furulluq Tree Reservation and Al-‘Udhr Mountain:  A confirmed 11 rats killed by the SAAF.  A warehouse was destroyed along with a machine gun cannon.  There were 3 nests of rats all of which were scorched.

Nusra Front attacks Division 30 US trained fighters.

The statement could not be clearer. The force being trained by the US military is attempting to operate as part of a “united front” with the Syrian affiliate of Al Qaeda, which the American people have been told for nearly 14 years represents the foremost threat to the US.
http://www.globalresearch.ca/washington-stunned-by-attack-on-us-mercenaries-in-syria/5466689

The Times reported that officials said, “they expected the Nusra Front to welcome Division 30 as an ally.” It quoted one former senior US official, said to be working closely on Syrian issues until recently, as saying, “This wasn’t supposed to happen like this.”

TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian President Vladimir Putin broke the accepted diplomatic protocols and personally summoned Turkish Ambassador to Moscow Ümit Yardim, and warned him that the Russian Federation shall sever the diplomatic relations immediately unless Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stops supporting ISIL rebels in Syria, where Russia holds its last navy base in the Mediterranean sea. The AWDnews website qouted Moscow Times as reporting that the Russian president purportedly went into a long diatribe criticizing the Turkish foreign policy and its malevolent role in Syria, Iraq and Yemen by supporting Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists, which escalated the conversation with the Turkish… Read more »

So far the YPGs are very opportunistic and therefore have different support with the Kobane one accused of having to close relations with the US coalition and the Hasaka one coordinating with SAA and allies.
Many European connections are not NATO or else but connections of the illegal European PKK Organisation.
The PYD has a majority in all of the YPGs.

When will SAA tank crews be trained and pressured to maintain better care and security of their machines? Don’t get me wrong, there will always be losses while fighting; however, we often see Syrian tanks knocked out while they are parked and empty of personnel. This only means lack of care and due diligence by the machine’s crew to protect it from wandering “tank-hunters” with ATGM’s. In order to protect a tank from an ATGM strike, you must dig a hole in shape of a ramp. The tank can be parked at the very end of it, completely out of… Read more »

That’s how some Iranians(Fars, Rouhani) are played by the Russkies. Russians tell them something and they believe it, even though they have been betrayed by Russia so many times (like with S-300).
If (!) Putin summoned Turkish ambassador, he was certainly angry about Erdogan spilling the beans about their secret talks and agreements.
Maybe there are some problems in Russia-Turkey relations (haggling about the gas pipeline?), so Erdogan started revealing Putin’s secret dealings, and Putin got angry..

Good news, Syria has to keep the pressure on, rats will yield.

NATO backed AL Qaeda Nusrats have taken a beating in Fawru yesterday, they attempt to storm the city to reduce the pressure on Frikka and the M4, after a brief success, the local NDF routed them and took a position just south of the imperative Al Sirmaniyah, this town is key due to the mountain road to NE Lattakia.

The answer is: SAA follows now the tactical Approach to lose as few men as possible and so they are not storming well or easily defended positions. They attack only if opportunity arises.

“He can now burn in Hell.”

Well as I wrote earlier, I doubt that Souls have nerve endings. As David Icke once said. Life is just a movie. Einstein said that the world is an illusion albeit a pervasive one. Considering that Muslim extremists and “people” like Tony Blair are most likely Mind Controlled, perhaps an “awakening”, healing & resolution is a better outcome.

It is possible that death offers such an opportunity. However I believe in reincarnation and it is likely that bad guys and good guys keep coming back where they left off.

What? “Russia already won in Ukraine”. You are that ignorant or that deluded?

Russia lost in Ukraine and has been left only with scraps of land. It cannot sustain those parts, so it wants USA to force Ukraine to maintain the Russian-occupied regions economically. That’s how bad situation Russia is in. Russia cannot attack, because it lost militarily. Russia cannot maintain even its minimal gains. So this is a huge dilemma for the Katsaps.

This is exactly Putin’s known character.
When Putin was threatened by Bandar the Ape bin Sultan of the Saudi proto-hominids, who claimed to control Caucasus thugs who might attack Sochi Games, he rebuked him to his ugly face.
Putin told him KSA would be destroyed if they tried to intimidate Russia.
Putin then had the Russian military draw up plans for the destruction of KSA — and let it be known this had been done.

Russia Will Not Send Troops to Fight Islamic State in Syria – Kremlin

Peskov added that Syrian President Bashar Assad had never asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to send troops to Syria.

http://sputniknews.com/world/20150804/1025393998.html

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia has no plans to send its military personnel to fight Islamic State militants in Syria or to join the coalition airstrikes against IS positions, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

“This possibility is not on discussion agenda at all,” Peskov told reporters in Moscow.

Peskov added that Syrian President Bashar Assad had never asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to send troops to Syria.

RT article: hundreds of Saudi tanks being driven to Aden. There does not appear to be much, if any, flank security for an armor road convoy miles long. Given the astonishing delicacy of modern tanks when used as mere transport, it should be interesting to see how many actually make it to Aden. Plus, the Saudis are not noted as being much on getting dirty, so probably breakdowns would be a matter disregard for the proper care and feeding of the beasts.
