WHAT’S BEHIND THE QATARI MANEUVER? IT’S GAS, MY BOY–GAS; DERA’A: ALQAEDA DEVASTATED AS SYRIAN ARMY REINFORCEMENTS ARRIVE TO KICK THEM OUT; SYRIAN ARMY BLASTS ISIS EAST OF HAMA IN NEW CAMPAIGN; LIBERATES 6 NEW TOWNS

Image result for Qatar leader Tamim

Well, it ain’t Iran’s truly honest elections which swayed the Amir of Qatar, Tameem bin Hamad `Aali Thaani, to switch loyalties to Iran.  And, it wasn’t anything to do with the largest American military base in the region at Al-‘Udayd.  In fact, the switch to Iran while hosting the U.S. would seem an unlikely coupling.  But, not if you are a mini-state on the verge of self-destruction through a disadvantaged economic position.

You see, folks, once the natural gas pipeline is completed from Iran, across Iraq, to Syria’s coast, Qatari gas will be so expensive that the country will float on its cash reserves for a couple of years and then, implode.  No more Qatar.

Hmmmm.  The Iranians thought.  What if we let the Qataris in on the deal?  What if we share the natural gas pipeline?  What if we can drive a wedge between Qatar and the rest of the Arabian trash on the Gulf?  Wouldn’t that be British of us?

And so, it has happened.  Iran has agreed to give Qatar a share of its rights in the pipeline to Syria and Damascus has agreed as long as Qatar discontinues its support for Al-Qaeda, ISIS and all the other rat groups like Faylaq Al-Rahmaan.  Soon, Qatar’s useless military officers will be withdrawn from MOK in Jordan.  And, better yet, Qatar is now absolved from any further obligation to the so-called “Saudi coalition” in the very unpopular war in Yemen.

The Saudis are enraged.  How could Qatar support the Muslim Brotherhood, a group of Islamist fundamentalists who are deeply opposed to rule by primogenture or dynasticism?  And, how could Qatar, a fellow rag-head nation hand its baton to Shi’I Iran, Saudi Arabia’s main enemy in the region?  How, indeed?  The Egyptians, so affronted by Qatar’s actions, accepted a check from Saudi Arabia in the billions in order to get it to pull its embassy out of Doha. Even the “government” in East Libya also departed.

Will Saudi Arabia attack Qatar with the U.S. base right there?  Hardly, unless the U.S. pulls its assets out which will cost Mr. Trump a pretty penny.  And how can Saudi Arabia do anything about it when it has its own paws full in Yemen?  Politics make strange bedfellows – the U.S. and Iran in a menage a trois fit for the history books.  I can’t wait to hear Trump explain this one away.

Don’t pay attention to the Washington stink tanks. They are deliberately hiding the facts from the pushover press.  Pathetic. Let’s watch and see how long Saudi Arabia will take to act now that it’s enemy, Iran, is right on the border. ZAF

DER’AH:

الجيش السوري بالتعاون مع حلفائه  يسيطر على1400 كم مربع في البادية السورية شرقي تدمر خلال 24

 

The Syrian Army was attacked the day before yesterday by Alqaeda/Nusra in positions held around the northeastern and northwestern Al-Manshiyya Quarter.  The Syrian Army knew that the terrorists were planning this attack by monitoring their movements, accumulating reports from citizens and by listening in on their traffic.  It was certain that they would attack before the column of reinforcements from Damascus was set to arrive today.  It was a disaster for the terrorists.  Not only are they intellectually inferior to the minds directing the Syrian military forces, they are also fighting now with a diminishing belief that God is on their side.  The rout was so massive, the SAA had the full opportunity to conduct a field assessment without fear of snipers.  The snipers, actually, had been eliminated by highly precise artillery and rocket fire which brought several buildings down on their heads.  Here are the names of the deviants killed by the Syrian Army.  These are all Alqaeda members:

1.  Wasseem Yunus Thallaaj Al-Masaalima (This is the rodent who commanded the terrorists on the ground)

2.  Hassan Subhi Abaazeed (Another field commander who just didn’t luck out)

3.  Mahmoud Haamid Al-Zu’bi (Another failed commander)

4.  Kaasib Muhammad Al-‘Umar

5.  ‘Abdullah Naadir ‘Izza

6.  Saalim Muhammad Al-Shaykh Abu Shawsha

7.  Mustafaa Muhammad ‘Awadh Al-‘Issa Al-Haaj-‘Ali

8.  ‘Uthmaan Muqbil Falaaha

9.  Khaalid Muhammad Al-Sabaasina

10. Tawfeeq Ahmad Al-‘Umar

11. Ahmad Mahmoud Al-Muhsin

12. Mahmoud Haamid Mahmoud Al-Zu’bi

13. Ibraaheem ‘Addaad Al-Karraad

14. Ahmad ‘Aarif Al-Muhsin Al-Mahaameed

15. Husaam ‘Umar Al-‘Umar

16. Mousaa Khaalid Al-Karraad

17. Ismaa’eel Khaalid Al-Taalib

18. Naassir Bakkoor Al-Fallaah

19. Raami Tawfeeq Al-Masaalima

20. ‘Abdul-Hakeem Arsheedaat Abaazeed

21. Ismaa’eel Khaalid Al-Taalib

22. Saamir ‘Umar Al-Zu’bi

23. Haasim Hassan Al-Mahaameed

24. ‘Abdul-Wahhaab Saalim ‘Umraan

25. Ziyaad Ahmad Al-Hassan (a/k/a “Abu Suhayb Al-Ansaari)

26. Badr Muhammad Al-Khateeb

27. Abu ‘Umar Al-Hawraani (Id. pending)

MAY THEY ALL BURN IN THE FLAMES OF HELL.

It is estimated that around 100 were wounded.  The Syrian Army destroyed 2 tanks, 3 rocket launchers and 1 armored car.

Note to readers:  The names Al-Mahaameed, Abaazeed, Al-Masaalima, Al-Zu’bi are all the prominent clans of the Der’ah area.  Their names have popped up constantly in the lists of the dead for 6 years and it’s amazing that they have not become extinct.

Al-Salamiyya Area:  The SAA, flush with news weapons and soldiers freed from other entanglements around the country, barreled into ISIS positions with T-72 tanks armed with the domestically produced Saraab 1 anti-anti-armor deflection system and punished ISIS mercilessly.  As of today, these towns have been liberated:

Abu Hubaylaat

Rating agency Moody’s will assess the implication of Britain’s shock election result, which has cast the country’s approach to Brexit and the future path of its economic policy into doubt.
British Prime Minister Theresa May failed to secure a majority in Thursday’s snap poll, leaving the UK with a hung parliament.
“Moody’s is monitoring the UK’s process of forming a new government and will assess the credit implications in due course,” said Kathrin Muehlbronner, a Moody’s Senior Vice President and lead UK sovereign analyst.

I fail to see how they could succeed in their project. I’m not even sure if any sunni tribe in Eastern Syria is in favor of this partition; add to this the hostility of the PMU, Iraqi army, Syria, Russia, the fact that the US cannot send more than a few thousands soldiers, but they stick to the plan neverthless.

Just a suggestion to have a open thread on days there is no posting by Ziad.This would allow the followers of the blog to see the latest news and opinions as posted by Canthama Igor and other blog followers. I don’t know if other followers of the blog feel the same. It would more easier to follow events on the ground as reported by these guys .

Yes the Russians have won in Syria, the outcome is already determined. Nothing anyone else can do now can change that. Also it would take Qatar bringing Al Queda to the table to bring peace to Syria.

A woman smiles at him and the smile is so genuine and warm. The people love him and that’s why nobody can oust him, ever. What a man. My deepest reepct.

Interesting times. Seems like Al-Tanf is the main (re)supply hub for the terrorists (including Isis) in Central/Eastern Syria and Damascus area. Its kindof bold move from Syria to just drive infront of it and block the main roads but we can see that it is working. All in all i think the situation is running more and more out of control for the “Friends of Syria”. Apart from the ISIS pocket in Hama/Homs and the problems in Derra City it looks really very good.

Attention can easily switch to Saudi and NATO-backed terrorists. They just have to get a list hacked and leaked. These people are playing a big risk here.

Now the imbreds have drawn attention to who openly supports terrorists. Imagine if a list of Saudi and CIA terrorist assets goes public! Lets hope so.

Few days ago we have shared that the Tiger forces would go straight to Sfaiyeh crossroad, in parallel to the N4 highway, and that was when ISIS still held Maskaneh city. Since then, the Tiger Forces are have re captured 1/2 of the way (toughest half packed with villages), and now the other half is in a inhabited area south of Tabqa airbase, just one small village and 20 kms left.

Pakistan is not in that list but was on teetering on the brink a few years ago due to terrorism. Sudan has been carved up in to two.

@ MD, First off, I really appreciate your contributions to SyrPers and the time and effort your put into writing your entries [regardless whether I agree or disagree with them], because it offers a unique perspective on the ever changing sands of conflict. The west may have devastated many countries in the ME, but did they defeat the people as well? Look at Palestine and the Palestinians. For almost 70 years now, the zionist vermin has been trying to exterminate them collectively, but the people are still standing tall and are undefeated. I believe in people, in individual strength and… Read more »

Video – There are many fighter groups working with SAA, about which little is posted. I think this is one of them > ‘Liwa al-Quds’ (Arabic: لواء القدس ) or the Jerusalem Brigade, a Sunni Palestinian pro-Government militia. (Please correct if wrong.) Here’s a 7 June 2017 video of that group, titled > “Liwa On the way to Deir ez-Zor.” Good pix of fighters, equipment and terrain. (Arabic, some English subtitles).

Yes, Mike. Those of us who had the good fortune of finding this site long ago have heard much of Liwa al-Quds. They played a critical role last fall in the liberation of Aleppo.

I can’t be sure; we will see soon. The Russians cannot accept one strike per day without conceeding the whole issue, the more they show restreint the more NATO strikes. But it’s very dangerous and can spin out of control (go nuclear), so it’s not surprising that they were not in a rush to strike US forces, unlike Americans they don’t believe that they are invincible.

SDF: “We are ready to cooperate with Saudi Arabia regarding Syria.”

Well it was on a FSA unit which was part of the ISIS coalition that attacked Raqqa (I think)..
They were trying to block a tiger force advance by taking over a small isis village on the outskirts.

But with this announcement, I think the SDF can expect to get hit anywhere and anytime they advance into syria.

It is important to read some of the backstage movements such as the defection of 50+ turkish backed ES terrorists to the SAA, some did personally to the Tiger himself, the so called “moderat” media tried to spin the news as defection to the SDF, did not last long the lie.

I hear the independence referendum will just be a gauge of Kurdish support, acting on the results is an entirely different matter.

I know that the British and Americans have been shuffling to Iraqi Kurdistan recently, and I wouldn’t be surprised at their hand behind pushing for the referendum. If the British are involved especially, take that as a sign for something murky being planned. I’m not sure how this move would be accepted by Turkey, because they get along with the Barzani clan. Iraq will oppose this very strongly. Something to keep an eye on.

As we have mentioned few times at Syrper, the NATO’s terrorists inside the eastern Damascus/Suweida pocket would go to a rough ride, even more after ISIS airforce hit the SAA camp in the al Tanf road. A very large desert area was liberated overnight, the frontline is approaching fast the few villages the terrorists hold in Suweida, soon this pocket will be gone. All Dakwa area was cleaned and soon all Dirat al Tulul will be rat free (see map below).

I can literally write a whole essay on this. But I’ll try to keep it short. Bitcoin supply is mined by computing power. Who-ever mines them, i.e. invests in computer network to solve complex cryptographic proofs, gets a bunch of Bitcoins as a reward. Then supply expands. You don’t need to be a miner to get them. You can just buy mined ones instead. Yes its true that anybody with a big network can mine them, including banks if they wanted.

AR:
The one very solid thing about digital currencies if they are set up right is that they are incorruptible. All transactions are mapped in real time to thousands of distributed servers, including personal computers.
This means that there is no central manipulation possible and if an investigation is required for any reason, a democratic audit is readily available which has access to a perfect historical record of all transactions.
With the current tribe-run central banking scheme, they can do whatever the hell they want and we are none the wiser.

The things Trump has been doing are quite popular with his base, and with certain pro-Israeli and anti-Iranian factions of the Deep State. However, they are quite destructive for the Empire long term.

I don’t really think Mr. Tangerine Man wants to destroy the Empire, but if he did, what better way to do it than apply a little geo-political jujitsu. Give your enemies exactly what they’re clamoring for, thereby protecting your own power position, but actually accelerating their destruction.
