SYRIAN ARMY CONQUERS PALMYRA’S CITADEL AND THE SYRIATEL TOWER; ONWARDS TO THE HEART OF PALMYRA

88766

 

HOMS:  The Syrian Army has racked up another victory over the Turk-supported and Saudi-financed terrorist group called ISIS.  In 2 places, at the SyriaTel Tower atop a hill overlooking the “Necropolis” (Jabal Al-Quboor) and the Citadel of Palmyra (a/k/a “the Citadel of Fakhreddeen Al-Ma’ni”, d.o.b. August 6, 1572 and died April 13, 1635), the Syrian army stormed high fortifications set up by the terrorist rodents and destroyed them all killing every single vermin except those who absconded early to face certain death at the hands of ISIS itself or our vaunted Desert Falcons.   You can see the citadel in the photo below.  It was built in the 13th Century by the Mamluke military giant, Rukneddeen Baybars Al-Bunduqdaari  who was headquartered in Egypt. But, it was renamed for Prince Fakhreddeen, in the 16th Century, who established a Druze Emirate here and elsewhere in Syria.  Lebanese historians and fantasts cause unending sarcasm when they refer to the Syrian-born prince as “Lebanese” despite the fact that his birthplace “B’aqleen” was in the Province of Syria.  The citadel, which overlooks,  ancient Palmyra is a classic of the architecture of the time, (notwithstanding its poor engineering), complete with drawbridge, moat and crenelated walls.

_Camp

 

The Syrian Army has also liberated the “Hotel District” including the Semiramis and Didiman.  As I write, the army is pushing deep into the city aiming to establish control over the Fuel Station.  Resistance has been sporadic, the rats mostly relying on booby-trapped vehicles and IEDs.  Each rat has been assigned a platoon whose sole purpose is to expose him and kill him.  According to Monzer, there are only about 600 rodents left in the city, some of whom are known to be preparing for a pullout or a negotiated surrender – an event which will not happen, by the way.  They are in a true dilemma: if they surrender to our Falcons, they will die.  If they escape to their litter-mates in Al-Raqqa or Al-Sukhna, they will, also, die.  So sad.  Sigh.

Luckily, when the rodents first appeared on the scene in May 2015, the army evacuated the city’s population along with thousands of ancient artifacts.  Only the sarcophagi which weighed tons, could not be put on the backs of trucks.  With almost no population to speak of, the army is not attacking gingerly when it comes to blasting whole areas of the city.  We are only hours away from total liberation.

There is little to no mention in the western media of the successes of the Syrian army in Palmyra.

This should not surprise us. They have been beating the drum since 2011 for Syria to fail, have aided and abetted the jihadi head choppers from the beginning.

I am reposting this in the new Ziad’s thread. Complete collapse of ISIS in Palmyra, all over, the end is within hours. 1) Huge advance northeast of Palmyra. 2) Fight in the Palmyra-Der ez Zor, meaning ISIS inside Palmyra are completely cut off, no way out for the ones inside. 3) Fights inside the city for the first time, from 3 different directions, SW, SE and NW. 4) Fight inside the airport. https://twitter.com/sayed_ridha/status/713399513285656576 https://twitter.com/sayed_ridha/status/713407484174606336 Palmyra is falling all together and the allied forces are building a protection area northeast of it.

Should l this true, it is a complete encirclement of Palmyra. Kaputt, the end for ISIS in Palmyra.

“SAA reportedly take full control of Tadmor Airport, if true it would mean that the city is now encircled”

Looking at web page for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation there are no headlines for this huge victory in Syria today.

Today is especially a Good Friday for Syria. Christians are still able to celebrate this day, in spite of the “Christian” John McCain.
A good story on Moon of Alabama. How exactly are ISIS able to survive in southwest Syria, cut off from their supply chain in Turkey and KSA. I guess it helps snuggling up against the Israeli border. Nothing to see here. Move along folks.

Palmyra has more or less been taken, and then it’s Deir az Zour and Raqqah left in the Syrian east, in conjunction with the successful Iraqi push against ISIS on the other side of the border. Ziad posted the Newsweek link to an article by a Jew who used to work for the Pentagon. This character even referred to Erdogan being executed, but in the context of how “America would not be happy with this”, however the very fact that he mentioned such a radical scenario is an indication and a warning to Erdogan. The article basically said if the… Read more »

As alan pointed out above, Al Amiriyah was taken as well, now ISIS has very little ground inside Tadmor downtown area, most likely packing what they can to flee, but it will be hard since the only way out is under fire control by the allied forces at the airport, see latest map below, total collapse.

https://twitter.com/sayed_ridha/status/713425252970160128

It is very likely that ISIS lost hundreds of terrorists today since they decided to stay and fight, good riddance.

News that multiple special forces groups are driving hard toward the oil and gas fields around Palmyra taking advantage of the fleeing ISIS terrorists, they are trying to get them as preserved as possible, Arak gas fields, Al Hail gas fields and T3 pumping Station. Lets hope they can get there safely.

Treasure “Trove” Of ISIS Documents Detail Secret Oil Trade With Turkey When a three star Russian general strolled into the US Embassy in Baghdad on September 30 of last year, US personnel were taken aback by what he said: “If you have forces in the area we request they leave. Airstrikes start in one hour.” That was the beginning of Russia’s intervention in Syria and it took the US completely off guard. It was vintage Putin and even the Russian President’s detractors couldn’t help but chuckle. Over the next 30 days, a relentless air campaign carried out by Moscow’s warplanes… Read more »

Scapegoating has begone, let them fling bullcrap onto each other,

Officials point to Europeans arriving in Turkey with weapons and on watchlisted passports and say warnings were ignored
Turkish officials have accused European governments of attempting to export their Islamic extremist problem to Syria, saying the EU has failed to secure its own borders or abide by pledges to share intelligence and cooperate in fighting the jihadist threat.

Ziad, there is nothing I read of this horrible war that is more inspiring than your accounts of the progress of these courageous fighters. I find it a great tragedy (as a story maker) that one of the most incredible recoveries of a nation by these brave men – from the jaws of the doings of disgusting corrupt snakes – is not known by most of the western world. While the west is held hostage to the next ‘series’ of the pathetic downward spiral and indulgences of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones in the hollywood filth factory – the… Read more »

Ain’t be that easy, some set backs in Palmyra late in the day, ISIS counter offensive coming from the east pushed the allied forces out of the airport and Al Ameriyah, all the area is contested though, fight is everywhere on the green area in the map below, the HD version allows you to zoom in nicely. @hamza_780 is part of or ex SAA, he has excellent contacts on the ground, his maps always present some different perspective.

I read that the US agreed not to question president Assad’s fate anymore. Well, good for them. Since if they tried, they’d be minced as well. SAA is currently the best army in the world. The most experience, and in so varied forms of warfare, hundreds of thousands of motivated fighters, excellent equipment. Perfect allies. Really, even if I were Putin, with such a marvelous army at my disposal, I’d rather not cross SAA right about now. Or I’d be ready to use the nukes.

A sobering break from exulting over the victories in Palmyra. I almost hate to bring it up, but William F. Engdahl’s take is that the madmen of the Beltway are not done with Syria yet.
He forecasts major events around July, triggering a US intervention in Syria’s neighborhood.
He has a book which should be a ripper, ”THE LOST HEGEMON: NWO From Clinton To Trump”.
