Nobody envy NATO strategists and the western ‘think tanks’ for the miserable failure and disappointment they are living, all their dreams on winning in Syria are being trashed before their very eyes, and those who were putting conditions and insisting on a full victory against Syria are trying to find compromises and mediation with the Syrian state. From where did the SAA, Syrian Arab Army get all that strength? Well, we warned since the beginning, the SAA is not using its full power and only working with 20 – 30% of its might in the battles. In one earlier posts I wrote the Syrian Armed Forces before the crisis were mostly around quarter a million soldier, now they’re almost 1 million in 5 different armies fighting on all fronts all over Syria. NDF added a huge man power to the SAA, Baath Brigades, Syrian Resistance mainly in north west of the country, not to mention the Syrian security forces including policemen evolving from regular security to real fighters in their capacities. Then due to the biggest fault of attacking and involving Palestinian camps in the fights in Syria, the Palestinian Liberation Army and a number of Palestinian factions loyal to the Syrian state are ready to assist at any time. Then you have Hizbullah fighters securing the border villages near Qussayr which are mostly inhabited by Lebanese families.
Map of Northern Syria, in red circles: Qamishli, Rastan & Qussayr
Hasakeh: A Nusra Front commander with 6 of his cannibal terrorists were killed when a unit of the SAA targeted them in the school of Tal Hamiss in Qamishli countryside.
Aleppo: Rashidin neighborhood east of the city near the Aleppo International Airport road was cleansed from terrorists by SAA and the governor instructed municipal workshops to restore all services in the district asap.
Homs, Qussayr: An SAA unit near Shamsin killed 7 terrorists trying to flee from the city, an unidentified number more were injured. Syrian Arab Army finished cleansing the south west district of the city, reached the Municipality building in the center and advancing slowly in the northern neighborhood. Worth noting the northern district consists mostly of higher buildings making it more difficult for SAA to advance swiftly maintaining the buildings, but nothing is stopping the SAA men.
Worth noting the successive requests by western powers, the UN and even one of the most hated Lebanese politicians and former warlord from the Lebanese civil war to allow a passage for about 400 ‘wounded men’ in Qussayr into Lebanon. Chameleon Walid Junblat tried to ask Hizbullah leadership in Lebanon to mediate for the terrorists free passage and was answered negatively: ‘There’s nothing we can do, you can discuss the matter directly with the Syrians’, and when he tried to do so via a mutual friend with a Syrian official the reply was: ‘The route out of Qussayr city is known, and it’s the same route used by civilians to leave [via SAA checkpoint]‘.
SAA units killed a whole group of terrorists trying to sneak into Qussayr city near Dheirej village. The group seems trying to break the siege SAA places around Qussayr city.
The sudden craze by the westerns and their stooges about the terrorists in Qussayr proves there’s something very important they care for so much. Check our Qussayrgrad post.
The head of the Qatari formed Syrian opposition coalition Sabra begged the Lebanese parliament speaker in a video message to interfere with the Syrian leadership to allow the besieged to leave. Syrians on social media sites were wondering: If the FSA ‘Free from Syrians Army’ controls most of Syria, and if they’re sending reinforcements to Qussayr as NATO aligned media keep repeating, why begging everybody to allow whoever in Qussayr to leave? One activist wrote to Mr. Sabra: ‘Watch Al-Jazeera and you’ll see FSA is still reinforcing for Qussayr battle instead of begging here and there’.
While writing this post a breaking news from local sources in Qussayr confirmed around 245 terrorists surrendered to SAA in Qussayr with their weapons.
The FSA umbrella for terrorists is being punched by SAA advances
Homs, Rastan: SAA units carried out a number of surgical operations in the city against terrorists command centers near the Sports Center, Security Building and Professional Training Center. Al-Qaeda FSA lost in men, weapons and vehicles.
Rastan city could be the target after Qussayr for the SAA, it’s the city where the Nusra Front committed their first crimes in the Syrian crisis. It’s the actual ‘stronghold’ of the FSA (Nusra Front) terrorists.
Operations continue in Damascus countryside, Jobar cleansing is on track, terrorists in Barzeh are cornered more by the day especially with the discovering of their sewers they were moving through, Harasta in the countryside is recovering but very slow, the nearby Douma is the biggest concentration of Nusra Front in the populated city. To the south, Darayya should be declared officially safe for human beings in the coming days after it was infested by NATO mercenary Wahhabi Sex Jihadists.
In Daraa, the SAA is moving only in surgical operations, keeping an eye on Al-Qaeda’s biggest supporter to the south: Israel.
