SYRIAN ARMY CHOKES OFF TERRORISTS AT SOUTH ALEPPO; HIGHWAY CLOSED BY SAA; SAA MOVES TOWARD SALMAA IN LATAKIA, TERRORISTS’ LAST REFUGE

الجيش السوري

ALEPPO:  The M5 Damascus-Aleppo International Highway has been closed by the SAA at the village of Al-Khaalidiyya essentially strangling the terrorist hyenas in Al-Zurba and Khaan Al-‘Asal.  All supply lines are severed and it’s only a matter of a short time before the rats crumble into the vindictive arms of our Popular Defense Committees.  Already the panic has set in as rodents froth at the mouth, squealing out vulgar recriminations at their leaders who promised them everything – everything, that is, until Russia started to prowl the skies and blunted every attempt to bring in Saudi-purchased supplies.  No,  the rats are finished and people are talking openly about Aleppo becoming rat free.

The priority now is to move westward toward Al-Raashideen.  This area, because of its peculiarities will not be assaulted directly.  Instead, the SAA is expected to move around the suburb in order to interdict any possible attempt by the Erdoghani criminals to resupply the terrorists holding out in the area.  Thus, do not expect any dramatic moves here.   Instead expect the SAA to siege the area while moving to liberate Icarda, Abu-Shaleem, Al-Shaykh Raheel and Al-Zurba.

The West is calling for a ceasefire now.  Why?  Read the article I’ve posted below.

_______________________________________________________

LATAKIA:  The much-anticipated move to Salmaa has begun.  The terrorists are expected to put up a ferocious defense because, without Salmaa, their entire project in the northeast of the province will self-destruct and they will find themselves more as guests of the corrupt Turk regime than they are as fighters for their corrupt version of Islam.

 

الجيش يدك معاقل «النصرة» في سلمى والمناطق الغربيّة في ريف حلب الجنوبي قاب قوسين

Maneuvering in Salmaa will be difficult owing to the terrain which is, obviously, very mountainous.  I am telling my readers to watch for carefully planned use of paratroopers who have been training for weeks for this operation and look for deployment of brand new artillery bought from the Russian Federation including the TOS-1 cannon.  Because Salmaa is abandoned, we expect the town to be leveled to the ground by both artillery and air power.  It’s the cost of war.  Once Salmaa is secure,  tens of thousands of trained fighters will descend on Jisr Al-Shughoor where the soon-to-be-burned-alive Saudi cockroach, ‘Abdullah Al-Muhaysini, has been calling for a dissolution of Jaysh Al-Fath and the establishment of an Islamic Emirate.

NEWS AND COMMENT:

A great article about Obama’s break with Neo-Cons and other criminals:

http://www.globalresearch.ca/neocons-object-to-syrian-democracy/5497072

Why does the West only mention cease fires when their side is losing?  Remember GW Bush and the miserable Zionist invasion of Lebanon?

http://sputniknews.com/military/20151222/1032143708/west-syria-ceasefire-rebels-civilians-russia.html

Excellent long article about Dr. Assad’s secularism and Syria’s multiculturalism:

Get this video out so that American congressmen and women will take notice about Rachel Corrie’s murder by the sociopathic Zionists:

https://www.facebook.com/talent.stewart/videos/879126655519415/

Seymour Hersh exposes the disconnect between the Pentagon and Obama over Syria.  Very insightful article worth the read: (Thanks, Jeffrey Laubach)

note that there are talks on cooperation between russia and the muslim sisterhood in l y b i a. therefore an opportunity for meddling together with france pops-up.
by contrast russia is therefore also willing to protect israeli security interests with regard to, for e x a m p l e, hezbollah on the golan.

Hey Chevi, this is almost exactly how we call St Claus in Portuguese, Papai Noel, Papai-Papa-Father. Did not relalize that before, it seems we all got from French influence, either in Lebanon, Syria, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay…Père Noël is what they call in France.
Merry Christmas to all at Syrper and respective families, may God protect the Syrians of good and the brave heroes fighting for justice and their homeland, SAA, NDF, Hizballah and all the allied forces.

us and france already partially switched sides to a more or less n e u t r a l position approaching israels stance which do not want to see a big regional power to emerge in the middle east.
it is precisely for that reason that anti-russian war crimes propaganda becomes t o n e l e s s.

So, now I have read the report. What they call “methodology” is laughable: anonymous phone-call eye-witnesses.

Namely, AI claims to have “interviewed by phone or over the internet 16 witnesses to
attacks and their aftermath and spoke to more than a dozen Syrian human rights defenders
and representatives of medical organizations supporting work in the areas of the attacks.”

I awoke this morning to numerous “reports” by western media of Russian alleged war crimes in Idlib and elsewhere. I follow news on Syria using the NewsNow.co.uk aggregator (http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/World+News/Middle+East/Syria).

Amnesty International is the source.
Link: https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/mde24/3113/2015/en/

I had no patience to read it as of yet. Just thought to share the “news”.

Apparently, among those funding the AI are/were UK Department for International Development, the European Commission, the United States State Department, “and other governments”, but also “by the Rockefeller Foundation” (funding AI USA). This is just according to the Wikipedia page on AI.
I think these facts about the funding speak for themselves.

“Israel supports ISIS”

Israel is a PET project from the London bankers, aka Rothschild’s and their criminal gang of lackeys.
Israel serves 1 master only.
Israel is only there to divide the Arabs so they can get their resources cheaply.
Once Israel is no longer useful they will pull out all their Zionists.

STOP ATTACKING THE DECOY

The masterminds are the London/Paris bankers. If you attack the decoy the plan is working for the bankers.

Good news for the SAA. The progress is slower than I would have liked, what with all of the Russian bombing, but the thrusts in all areas are in the right direction. As for the Seymour Hersh article, he is mostly spot on. But, he doesn’t really explain WHY Obama and Clinton and Rice and Powers and Nuland and the whole neoliberal gang and their corporate media allies are so keen on removing Assad from office. Once he’s gone, northern Iraq will be at the mercy of the Anglo-American Bilderberger bankers and then iran and then Russia and then China… Read more »

Likely, the people at RT doing the ‘moderation’ are just too ignorant to judge appropriateness.

At least 23 people were killed in the eastern Syrian city of Deir Ezzor Tuesday, including nine children when a school was shelled by Islamic State terrorists.

The students, all girls, were among 11 killed in IS shelling of the school in the Hrabesh quarter.

The Syrian government condemned the attack.

“The terrorist rockets will not prevent us from continuing our mission of education,” said Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi.
