Handaraat: Control over the Handaraat Camp is important because it looks over the Castillo Road which is crucial to terrorist capability to supply the rodents holed up in East Aleppo. It is the last supply route to those particular terrorist cannibals.
Yesterday and today, the Syrian Army backed by the PDC and the air force battered the rodents in this area. Interestingly, since last Sunday, the Turk terrorist enablers, were allowing over 400 newly trained murderers to enter Syria and reinforce the terrorists at Handaraat and Tal Hidya. The terrorists were trained by the CIA using “independent contractors”. With them were one T-62 tank, 22 4-wheel drive pickups with Doschka cannons and several armored cars.
The Syrian Army knew from the first day that the Turks were doing exactly that. As the rodents arrived in Handaraat, the SAA opened up a massive curtain of artillery fire and assaulted the terrorist positions from many angles. The artillery assault was bone-shattering causing the rodents to fall apart, many abandoning their fortifications and moving inside the town where they were quickly sent back to the front. By the time they had arrived to their original positions, Syrian Army infantry had overrun some of the positions leading to some hair-raising hand-to-hand combat at which the SAA excels. It only took a few hours of fighting before the SAA managed to liberate whole sections of the Al-Mallaah Properties between Huraytaan and Handaraat.
The Syrian Army then turned its attention to the northern section of the Palestinian Camp and took control over the Zuhayr Muhsin Secondary School and the Palestine Mosque. Zuyayr Muhsin, a person I have met, was the commander of the Al-Saa’iqa Palestinian Resistance Group, trained by the SAA and controlled by the Ba’ath Party. Inside this area was Ahraar Al-Shaam and Alqaeda. The disaster for the rats took place after they tried to recover areas lost to the legitimate forces of the Syrian Arab Republic. Poorly planned and anarchically executed, their counter-attack played out under the watchful eye of SAA spotters who vectored in some astonishingly accurate artillery fire. The SAA has confirmed 120 dead rodents, many of them leaders such as:
‘Abdul-‘Aleem Al-Hassan (Leader of Liwaa` Al-Faatiheen. Yawn.)
Hakeem Al-‘Umar (Leader of Faylaq Al-Shaam) (See pictures of Al-‘Umar before and after. Thanks, Khaled)
Muraad Baashaa (Leader of Liwaa` Al-Muntasir bi-llaah)
Others who were identified positively were:
Zaahir ‘Ali Al-Khalaf
‘Ammaar Jihaad Rajab
Mustafaa Khudhr Al-Hamawi
Nasooh Zhaafir Al-Bayrooti
‘Awadh Muhammad Al-Buhayri
Faaris Bilaal Al-Halbaawi
The others were determined to be foreigners, many from Chechenya and some from Bosnia.
