Saudi Arabia Opts Out of Syria Cease Fire, Unleashes Frenzy of Attacks on Civilians

[ Editor’s note:  The Saudi led and financed Jaysh al Islam group, the largest operating inside Syria other than ISIS and overtly under the control of the Saudi Royal family, is using the cease fire to hide among other groups and wreak havoc on Syria’s population.  The Turkish backed al Nusra (al Qaeda) group is following the same path, trying to turn Damascus into what they have done to Baghdad, a graveyard.

This same Saudi led group is the same one Saudi Arabia fought to have included as part of the “moderate head choppers” over strong Russian objection.  Now they are openly not only boycotting the cease fire but involved in full scale terrorism as wellGordon Duff ]

Despite a tentative ceasefire and truce negotiations being discussed by groups across Syria, terrorist groups not party to the ceasefire continued their attacks on Saturday, primarily aimed at civilians.

Although the Russian-US negotiated ceasefire largely held on its first day, a series of blasts occurred across Syria by terrorist groups not party to the negotiations.

In Damascus, the Jaysh al-Islam group, linked to al-Nusra Front and not subject to the ceasefire, shelled residential areas. Another group not subject to the ceasefire, Ahrar al-Sham, is also active in the area.

“Terrorists in the Jobar and Duma neighborhoods fired mortars at Damascus residential areas. There have been no reports of dead or wounded among the civilian population,” a military source told RIA Novosti.

A military source speaking to Syrian television also urged area residents to pressure the terrorist groups responsible to prevent them from ending the ceasefire.

Daesh Attacks Continue 

The Daesh terrorist group not subject to the ceasefire also continued assaults in the Hama province and the eastern Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor. In the city of Deir ez-Zor, mortar shelling of two neighborhoods by Daesh killed three children, with another 12 persons injured.

In the Hama province, Daesh suicide bombings killed a total of six people, including two soldiers killed by a car bomb at a military checkpoint. Another suicide bombing carried out on a motorbike killed four people, and a suicide attack on a highway injured one person.

In northern Syria, Daesh attacked a town held by the majority-Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces. The attack, near the Turkish border, was repelled by the Kurdish self-defense forces (YPG) with the aid of US-led coalition attacks on Daesh positions.

    Finger pointing at Russia, Syria and any country that doesn’t bow to the so call “world comunity” is a lost cause, an evil cause that won’t stand a chance even with Syria completely destroyed…

    Erdogan & the Saudi d-Ruler are too smart by half — and so transparent. The now-joint U.S.-led and Russia-led coalitions TOGETHER will now target the Erdogan/Saudi-backed moderate head choppers.

    Assad has now called for possibly-premature legislative elections in April of 2016 — not 2017. Not necessarily a good thing… However, if Assad & Syria can do these elections, then Assad will almost undoubtedly consolidate power — shutting out much of the truly-moderate opposition and ALL of the moderate head choppers.

    After such elections, the Saudi/Turk-backed moderate head choppers will have NO claim to ANY part in ANY Transition, will NOT help to write a New Constitution, and will not win ANY seats in the legislature in any 2017 elections (in which Assad will almost undoubtedly be elected as President — AGAIN).

    I would love to see a violent revolution overthrow the Saud regime, with a Mussolini death display of all those “royals” that are running that crime syndicate.

      Saudi NWO puppets have to go, but replicating their savagery solves, what, exactly?

      “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.”
      ~ Samuel Adams, 1779
