LATAKIA: RUSSIA ENGAGES THE TERRORISTS; SYRIAN ARMY BAFFLES RATS SCORING BIG VICTORIES

1836

LATAKIA:

Humaymaat Airbase area:  The Russian air base expanded for accommodating the Antonov super transport planes was the target of an attack by ISIS, of all groups, here just south of Latakia near the sister city of Jabla.

 

 

You cannot see the new airbase on the map provided here.  However, it has, along with the Baasil Al-Assad International Airport, accepted over 28 supply runs from Russia to Syria.  According to our reports, satellite intelligence revealed the movement of about 8 rodents toward the Russian base at Humaymeem.  The terrorists were carrying a rocket launcher ostensibly to destroy the runway there or to strike at a resting Antonov transport.  Russian Speznaz commandos were immediately transported by the Syrian Army to a position where an ambush was set.  Once the trap was sprung, 3 rodents were killed and 3 surrendered with the rest heading for the proverbial hills.  The 3 captured vermin confessed to being members of ISIS which was suprising since everyone expected them to be members of either J.N. or Ahraar Al-Shaam.

 

Al-‘Utayra Village Military Base near Al-Rubay’ah:  We can confirm the deaths of 33 rodents belonging to Alqaeda/Nusra who were traveling in 7 trucks coming out of Turkey.  Good Intel gave the SAA an advantage in that the army was able to set an ambush for the moving rats and slay them all.

 

Al-Sawda Village:  54 rats killed or wounded by a combination of SAA and SAAF.  Details still murky.

 

Zaahiya and Al-Shahroora Villages:  On September 21, 2015, 24 Nusra rodents killed by the Popular Defense Committees.

 

Al-Hayaat Village:  In the direction of Al-Rubay’ah, the SAA continues to tighten the noose around the necks of Alqaeda while cutting off all supply lines to them.  Yesterday, in a uniquely well-planned operation, SAA-SF assaulted the rats here killing 11 and wounding scores.  The rats have no medicine to treat their wounded litter-mates.

 

Zaahiya Village:  Yesterday, 20 rats, 15 of whom were Chechens were killed in a sudden assault by SAA and PDC.

It is great to see the Flankers and Frogfoots and Fencers in Syria (maybe Mil 35s and Mil28s too?). I hope that in due course Russia supplies these excellent aircraft directly to the SAAF’s fleet.

Well, is it finally going to happen? SAA need victories and this one would be nice. If provides enough support, they could even make the base operational again instead of just evacuating it. We will see…

The word making its round in international circles is that Putin has convinced the CIS countries (Armenia, Belarus, Kazahkstan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzistan) of a military involvement in Syria, Subsequently, if we are to add China to the mix, who I think has been working behind the scenes but will make a formal entry in the not-too-distant future, then ISIS and its terrorist supporter states will be basically screwed. And let’s non mention a more substantial Iranian involvement, there and in Iraq. In short, The NeoCon Zionists’plans are Fu**ed!

The troll brigades — especially the anti-Russian trolls badmouthing Putin — are quiet these days. They are being forced to swallow a bitter pill. It’s called “reality setting in.” Syria is winning this war, and with Russia supporting the resistance bloc they will prove to be invincible.

What´s so great about a settler state built upon the bones of 50 million native Indians wiped out in genocide? A nation that has been at war for 222 out of it´s 239 years of existence.

There is nothing great about that, it´s a tragedy.

I always like to present a different point of view. This is not to be confused with lack of support to Syria. In fact,I have supported Syria during the rule of the late president Hafez Al Assad and continue to do so.Still.I believe that it is good to present a different point of view. I hope that I am wrong with my suspicions: I am happy with the russian move to send arms and troops to Syria.

so if i were playing chess against the russians i would turn up the heat just west of their country. just a tad. see how they do in a two front war. the russian econmy is fragile. and fairly small. they can only posture for so long unless they start money printing. and selling gold. etc. then they fall into the trap. but either way, this whole venture is fraught with dangers for president for life putin. he truly is a russian cowboy.

The dynamics in Syria have changed and what we are seeing playing out now in public is what those in the know would have been aware of sometime ago. Remember the head of Pakistani Military Intelligence stated publicly that he was briefed by the US in the June preceding the 9/11 event that the US would be mounting an expeditionary invasion of Afghanistan. Looking at all those “refugees” fleeing to Europe, all those fighting age men, being 70% of the numbers, I can’t help wondering if those that would be facing the might of Russian firepower have suddenly lost the… Read more »

You have a nit-wit in the White Houset,as far as the military goes, who knows squat.And to top it ALL his lead advisors are women starting with Jarett.

As the General said everything was micro managed by the White house meaning the final say probably went thru Jarett and not the military people.And the admission the the intel research documents were altered before the White house got them.

So i believe Russia sees a golden-gift of a chance to alter the power structure in the ME and they are starting to fill a void.
