SYRIAN ARMY PREPARES ENCIRCLEMENT OF AL-SUKHNA AS ISIS STARTS ESCAPE FROM AL-QARYATAYN

 

Other than some laughable exploits attributable to the lackeys serving the conflicted strategies of the CIA and Pentagon in northern Aleppo, there isn’t a lot to write about as the cease-fire continues fairly successfully.  Yesterday, the SAA liberated Western Al-Hazm (Al-Hazm Al-Gharbiyya), which you can see on the map overlooks Al-Qaryatayn.  The SAA also cleared out Elevation 861 in Al-Hazm giving the army an unobstructed look straight down into the town where the SAF continues to pummel ISIS rat positions.  According to our source, the SAF decisively put out of commission 6 vehicles, 2 of which were cannon-armed pickups.   The rate of bombings by the air force is a clue to how long the terrorists are expected to hold out.  Also just liberated are Al-Raaqima Elevation and Dhahr Al-Kharnoobi.

We are watching nightly efforts to evacuate Al-Qaryatayn of ISIS family members.  I can confirm that many cars and vans containing these non-combatants have been stopped and those inside taken to detention facilities outside Homs.

In the meantime, we are watching the slow encirclement of Al-Sukhna where a few hundred ISIS rats are holed up.  Terrorist chatter indicates a desire to abandon the town before the Syrian Army’s 7-day respite is to end.

At Tafha Village, about 80 kms from Homs City, the SAF, pummeled rodent positions near Jubb Al-Jarraah.  We are seeing a pattern developing of ISIS terrorists sending their families away from the infernal scenes about to envelop the area.  This usually is followed by the SAA invading the area.  The same is taking place at Al-Busayri Village.

 

The liberation of Palmyra is having salubrious effects on the army’s morale.  This was a victory which resonated remarkably with the population making the army seem even more efficacious, more competent than many had thought.  It is true that Russia played a role in wiping out the terrorist presence, but, it was also the formidable coordination between the Syrian Air Force and the army on the ground which impressed so many, leading a substantial number of writers to start questioning whether the war would end soon with a stunning victory at Aleppo.  Writers are also beginning to ring the alarm bells for Erdoghan whose durability is now being questioned.

Thank you Ziad. I appreciate you and others like you that day after day get the truth out. The lies from MSM are so blatant and are parroted by idiots. Turkish media is now proclaiming that Assad is looting Palmyra. No doubt this will be picked up my Reuters and their ilk as the gospel truth without checking the source. Your job is so much harder as you need to back with facts and explain the event. Noam Chomsky has mentioned this when being interviewed.

Great news on the events inside of Syria, but I wouldn’t break out the champagne and party wonkers just yet!!! As I have posted before, the “plan” would shift into Lebanon where Hezbo would be tied down by Israel and Turkey would be free to invade Syria directly without any Syrian allies to interfere. I would suggest that the Kurds be given heavy armaments, tanks, APCs, artillery, choppers, etc. to deal with the Turd/Turk threat and that would help relieve some of the pressure off of the SAA until they could clear the rest of Syria, and then focus their… Read more »

Las últimas revueltas y protestas en el mundo árabe, comenzaron en Túnez en diciembre del año 2010, cuando los tunecinos tomaron las calles de la capital Túnez gritando “El pueblo quiere la libertad”. Con el inicio del año 2011, las protestas se extendieron a otros países árabes, principalmente Egipto, Libia, Yemen y Siria, calificadas por distintos medios de comunicaciones y políticos, como las revueltas democráticas árabe o la “primavera árabe”. En mi opinión, la mala llamada primavera árabe es el comienzo de un otoño o inverno muy largo, muy escuro, lluvioso, pesado y peligroso, no trajo nada bueno, al contrario,… Read more »

Yes Ziad Palmyra was more than a military or strategic victory, it was a psychological victory ,more so that the it was the one city that the wordl’s people were focusing on and watching and i’m glad the SAA guys did not disappoint, i understand that even in Moscow they were celebrating.

There is no substitute for victory and this mental lift shall propel the fellows on toward Deir Ezor and Raqqah .

The Syrian army’s liberation of Palmyra is proof of the correctness of Russia’s military and diplomatic strategy in Syria, says retired French Brigadier General Dominique Trinquand. Moscow, he notes, has been the only power that has consistently maintained a diplomatic course aimed at bringing the war to an end through negotiation. On Sunday, the Syrian Army announced that it had successfully cleared the ancient city of Palmyra from Daesh (ISIL) militants, with the assistance of Russian air power and pro-government militia.

A study more than thirty years in the making found that smoking marijuana permanently lowers intelligence, or IQ. Frequent pot smokers (even those who had given up marijuana) tended to have deficits in memory, concentration, and overall IQ. The reduction in IQ for those who smoked pot heavily prior to age 18 was most pronounced: an average of eight points. An eight point reduction in IQ is enough to have a significant, negative impact upon your life. To put it into context, consider that individuals with an IQ of 110 have an average net worth of $71,000 and individuals with… Read more »

The Russians have withdrawn a number of aircraft and helicopters from Syria back to Russia. A flim crew filming the takeoff of an An-244 loaded with attack helicopters (5:20 onwwards) revealed something new at Hymeim – an Iskander short range tactical missile launcher at 5:23. These systems carry a 480 kg conventional or nuclear warhead and may have a range of 1000 km. If so, this would cover all of Turkey, most of Iraq, western Iran, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, north Saudia Arabia and north western Egypt.

Interesting – especially the total coverage of Turkey.

Let alone the building or establishing of churches, not a single new one in the last 80 years! But some 500 desecrations and defilements into mosques, 100 in Cyprus alone, since 1975! Spookey!

Just to keep Syrpers up to date with the offensive toward Sukhnar/Der ez Zor, the allied forces have reached the grain silos (cross marks the place at the map below) at the N7 highway. This is 14 kms away from the major Arak gas field and about 10 kms from Mustadira gas field.

The main issue to advance on the highway is the number of IEDs on the road, literally thousands of it.
