Syrian army prepares for final push to victory

Syrian Army deals a heavy blow on Saudi-backed terrorists

(Damascus, Syria)— As international community and Syrian government welcome the newly-reached agreement on a temporary truce in Syria, the U.S. administration and its Saudi allies seek to wreak havoc in war-torn Syria and exploit the humanitarian ceasefire to al-Qaeda terrorists’ benefit, though the Syrian army vowed to crush any insurgent group that doesn’t abide by the international deal.

Yesterday, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) units advance deeper into rebel-held Darayya, southern Damascus suburb, inflicting large causalities on al-Nusra Front militants —al-Qaeda offshoot in Syria—, destroying their heavy weaponry and severing their supply routes. Media sources close to Syrian opposition corroborated the reports of hasty withdrawal of radical militants from Darayya-Muadamiya front.

In the meantime, the Syrian Army and Popular Committees gain ground in northern Syria by wresting control of main rebel bastions of Ein al-Ghazal and Maza’la —north-western strategic town of Kensaba, close to key Lattakia-Aleppo highway—. Army soldiers also killed and captured scores of Chinese-Uyghur terrorists and seized several pick-up vehicles equipped with heavy machine guns. Concurrently, the Syrian troops retake strategic heights of Qamoua’a, Kafarsand and al-Koroum Khasat in Latakia’s northern countryside.

Syrian Arab Air Force also conducted several sorties against al-Nusra Front terrorist targets in Homs and Hama, killing 13 foreign rebels. In Eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian army explored and later blew up a tunnel in al-Sana’a neighborhood, liquidating 65 ISIS terrorist. Syrian Army engaged with ISIS gunmen in Hama-Aleppo highway and road connecting Khanaser to Ithriya, inflicting more losses on ISIS mercenaries.

    The ceasefire was clever. The various militias can stand down — They were getting slaughtered anyway — and the effort can be put to killing Daesh and Nusra. There are a few grey areas, like Jaish ul Islam and Ahrar ul Sham — technically they are foreign backed terror groups but their spokesman Alloush stands no chance at any negotiation.

    They will now either disband and get amnesty or get dealt with if they misbehave.

    It also puts Turkey, the US etc in a difficult position since the so-called moderates are no longer fighting and can’t be used as a smokescreen for fighting Daesh.

    The Kurds are not as exposed as the US would like them to be. When the war is over there will be a democratic process and they will be part of it. Saudi and Turkey will not be.

    What the Russians and Syrians have achieved in such a short space of time is truely amazing.
    But what now for the ISIS mercenaries?
    Next stop Libya.

    It exposes Turkey as a country that either actively sends ‘activists’ or does not care enough about them (and its own borders) to stop them from moving over de border as if the border was a playground.

    It already was a bit, but now with the cease fire, it’s conclusive.

    So that’s damage done to Turkey… Nice.

    Of all of Russia’s brilliant chess moves this cease fire may be their best. They have stood down some percentage of enemies. 30-50%? They can concentrate theirs and Syria”s military power on any non signers lessening their demands on resources. Also they expose any who posture for peace, think US/Turkey/Sodom Arabia. We now have to abide by the conditions we have petitioned for while S/R can continue business as usual against reduced opposition. Syria and the Kurds can keep advancing, reinforce their positions all the while maintaining their compliance of the cease fire. It really helps your bargaining position when you are winning handily anyway. I was wondering what Russia could gain by this, ans now it’s clear… everything.

      The Russians have an intense training program going for the Syrian army a brigade at a time, in combined operations warfare and updated equipment. It’s a 90 program, but we don’t know if the flow is one brigade a month or every three months. But when this is all over the Syrian army is going to have a hell of a lot more capability than before, which was a sad state after years of war an poor maintenance.
