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.

Wat?! Palmyra is only just surrounded from 3 sides! There are 2 issues here

Syrians are still not using gas agents to dislodge terrorists, which I cannot comprehend. It is either gas them out, or take heavy casualties while advancing. They don’t have to use banned substances; but simple tear gas would do wonders!

Secondly, even though reports of 3 Mi-28N’s having taken off for Palmyra, there are no reports of RuAF running hovering CAS.

Fair enough, but I just checked CNN and not one article anywhere on Palmyra. But, some cable news has mentioned it briefly.

Part of the reason is that the MSM does have a bias against Syrian victories, but also the Brussels attacks and the “Cuban Mistress Crisis” have taken center stage.

It was negligent of Assad to not call Putin earlier. Palmyra should never have fallen. The damage is far too great a loss.

Putin is the better administrator. Not that Putin has made no mistakes. Putin says everyone makes mistakes.

Anyway, we just have to move forward from here. At least Syria is not Libya or Iraq.

Better late than never. Losses are ok, but losing the country as Gaddafi did is a huge tragedy.

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.

The airport is vital for Syria’s intention to advance logistics toward the offensive to Zor and al Bukamal, but at the same time it is very vulnerable to attacks by ISIS coming from the eastern exposed flank, would not be surprised to have counter offensive at the airport, still very vulnerable as is.

jo, there is no easy battle, but as far I can tell based on the many reports today, the allied forces are doing a good job, the have the hills and the initiative, sometimes a counter offensive is welcome so the high command can counter it killing as much terrorists as possible, it has happened in east Aleppo, southern Aleppo, Khanaser road and in several sites in Lattakia, not sure but this may be part of the new tactics passed on to the SAA. Tomorrow will bring good news.
Thank you jo for being there for syrper and Syria.

Al-Ameriyah and the Airport were probably liberated by lightly armed forces. Regardless, the enemy counter offensive will certainly meet a punishing and devastating response from the SAA and allies which will kill more rats while destroying further the enemies ability to mount any further resistance in and around Palmyra.

Keep faith and trust in the SAA!

A counter attack can be very productive for the defenders if it is carried out in desparation by the attackers. The targets come to you rather than you having to find them. Airfields in particular are largely wide open spaces which are ideal for attacks be helicopter.

A dead takfiri is a dead takfiri whether it be in retreating or attacking.

Bravo to the SAA. And maintain the momentum!

What muslins folks will not like you to know. Islam is the religion of “peace” they claim. and Chritians are their “brothers”. sure. But according to RT newest report ,it doesn’t look like muslins are honest at all. Muslins that convert to christianity in Europe face major problems if they deported to their muslins countries of Origins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lO1qAUurZoo Russian propaganda? or the truth? A dirty little secret about Islam , that have been hidden for a lot of time by “peaceful muslins”/ And it is what muslins really think about Christianity and what they do when cameras not filming.

What does your Bullshit have to do with Syria? Syria is a secular nation buddy, as we speak both Sunni Muslims, Shia muslims , Christians and even Druze are fighting and dying together as brothers to liberate Palmyra and you come up with this load of shit? Go fuck yourself you ignorant moron, Syria is a secular nation that dont give a fuck about your infantile nonsense.

Ok hr, what you’ve just said makes as much sense as me saying that Christianity is the religion of the worst kind of criminals and killers and base my assumption on the acts of Hitler, Colonialism, slavery, Nuclear bombings, the inquisition and many many more acts of destruction done by Christians. But a thinking man would immediately realize that Christianity or Islam or any other religion has nothing to do with any of these atrocities. Only a weak minded and gullible person would come to the conclusion that all the wars in MENA are religious wars. Do you truly believe… Read more »

War Criminal Saudi Regime
Yemen Ceasefire May ‘Contribute to Downfall of Saudi Regime’ On Wednesday, the UN’s Special Envoy for Yemen announced that Saudi regime and the Houthi rebels agreed to a “cessation of hostilities,” one year since a Saudi regime-led criminal coalition began its military intervention in Yemen and days after a US airstrike killed 50 people in the country’s southeast. Zafar Bangash of Crescent International told Radio Sputnik’s Brian Becker, the host of Loud & Clear that though the news is welcome, it is too early to talk about real peace.

Seems Tadmur progress slowed down by demining.
During the time spent there for terror occupation IS
was busy under earth with tunneling and above with
mine laying, looks so

Meanwhile again US war machine reportedly seen
greasing their bearings with dead men, tell no tales.
But bad men living have more endings than a wurst.

I find it strange that they chose this time to build this as they loose the city they tried in vein to covert.

A story from Dublin Mick, he is a great researcher and writer, with exhaustive looks at history, that encompass all aspects of our life and the effects of history on us. How the powers that be deceive us and especially the sheepies. A good website to bookmark.

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. The Americans, that keep losing their wars, and developing expensive and failed equipment, are in… Read more »

Latest on Palmyra. After ISIS counter offensive early yesterday evening that pushed the advanced allied forces front line back to the Orchards, ancient city and hotel areas, the frontline became stable. Early today the allied forces once more advanced and took Al Amiryah village, north of Tadmor, and for the first time in 11 months started to entry the western neighborhood of Tadmor, the city is being liberated quarter by quarter at the moment. https://twitter.com/watanisy/status/713658278866190336 Furthermore, the allied forces are also widening its perimeter of hills toward the north for extra protection of the city, Tell al Serki was taken.… Read more »

Terrorist friendly news reporting that ISIS has mostly retreated toward Al Sukhna village, 1.3 the way to Der ez Zor, the very next target in the allied forces advance toward Zor.
There are still ISIS terrorists inside Tadmor that have the job to buy time for the larger force to retreat, suicidal job. Hopefully SAAF and RuAF will pin point the convoys and hit them head on. Most of Palmyra is about to be ISIS free.

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”.

After several years of reading anybody and everybody on the internet who offered opinions/’analyses’ critical of the western global elite, I’ve found that reading or listening to Engdahl is more often than not a waste of one’s time.
