Syrians rally in support of army in Homs

PressTV

Syrians have held a rally in the city of Homs to thank the country’s military for bringing back security to more areas in the region as well as other parts of the country.

Large number of Syrians took to the streets in al-Dahiyeh and al-Ommaliah areas in the city of Homs on Monday, with participation of the city’s governor, Talal Brazi.

The government troops have recently conducted successful cleanup operations across the country, inflicting heavy losses on the militants.

The Syrian army regained full control over three villages in the western province of Latakia on Monday, following heavy fighting with foreign-backed Takfiri militants.

On July 31, the army regained control of the main stronghold of foreign-backed militants in Homs in the Khaldiyeh district after more than one month of fierce fighting.

The Syrian Army’s push against the militants has rattled their sponsors.

Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zohbi said on June 26 that Saudi Arabia is trembling with fear because of the Syrian Army’s recent gains against the militants.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011. According to reports, Western powers and their regional allies – especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey – are supporting the Takfiri militants operating inside Syria.

According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and a total of 7.8 million displaced in Syria due to the violence.

Syrian Army troops have taken control of al-Daba’a town in the central province of Homs, a day after they fully purged the strategic border town of al-Qusayr from foreign-sponsored militants.

On Thursday, Syrian troops liberated the town after fierce exchange of fire with the militants.

Syria’s state television reported on Wednesday that Syrian forces had regained full control of Qusayr following three weeks of fighting.

Many foreign-backed militants were killed or injured throughout the mop-up operations conducted by Syrian soldiers in the town.

The militants fled to farms and a nearby village. Reports indicate that peace and security have now been restored in the region.

Syrian troops backed by the forces of Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah entered Qusayr from several directions on May 19.

Qusayr had been an important center and supply route for the foreign-sponsored militants fighting against the Damascus government.

Syria has been gripped by a deadly unrest since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of government forces, have been killed in the violence.

Damascus says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.

The Syrian government says the West and its regional allies including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey are supporting the militants.

Several international human rights organizations have accused militants operating in Syria of committing war crimes.

Exclusive: Most Prominent Achievements of Syrian Army Obtained Recently

During the last few weeks, the Syrian army attained a great progress in the battlefield and regained many areas, Al-Manar TV correspondent reported.

Aided by the Popular Committees, the Syrian army regained the Prophet Mando strategic hill in Homs countryside, and dominated over the military supply lines that lead to Homs and al-Qussayr on the sides of Tel-Kalkh and Al-Qaa.

Moreover, the Syrian army retrieved tens of villages in Qussayr countryside; the most important are Al-Borhania and Sakarja. Some villages east and west Assi River were also recaptured. Consequently, the Syrian Army tightened its control over the entrances of Qussayr city.

In Homs, the Syrian troops were able to impose control over many regions that were considered militants’ strongholds, restore security in Feraaya, strengthen their deployment in Khaledeya and Baba-Amru, and distance themselves from threats of militant groups.

In Damascus countryside, however, the Syrian troops were able to tighten the ring around the gunmen in east Gouta, severely siege Darya, and restore security in Jdaydet Al-Adem.

Syria: Armed gangs kidnap 150 Greek-Catholics – WHERE ARE H.CLINTON or OBAMA PROTESTING ?

The people of Rableh, a village situated between the Lebanese border and the city of Qusayr, in the Province of Homs, are protesting the kidnapping

ROME

We are talking about workers and farmers, men, youth and women, who were just a few kilometres from the village, working in the fields for the apple harvest, a major source of livelihood for the local population. Abou Fadel, a Catholic and father of one of the victims, contacted by Fides news agency, said he heard gunfire and blasts, “so we went to see what was happening. We saw lots of vans and pick-ups that brought people away. In the fields there were only boxes with the apple harvest left.”

Abou Fadel reports that “this region has for months been completely under the control of armed gangs who boss around. In the past few weeks we could not take care of the trees in the fields for lack of security. Then, thanks to a deal initiated by the governor of Homs, the situation looked better.”

“I am very worried. My son is among the kidnapped and many young people in our family have disappeared. Why? What do the kidnappers want? We fear for their fate. We are a peaceful village, close to the shrine of the prophet St. Elijah, a place worshiped by Christians and Muslims. We desire only to live in peace with everyone,” the man continues.

The Greek-Catholic Patriarch of Damascus, Gregorios III Laham, was informed of the incident and, Fides wrote having spoken to him, “he begs God to help the innocent and poor.” The Patriarch launches an appeal: “I call on all parties to respect the civil people and save innocent lives.” Some Christian leaders are trying to contact NGOs and international organizations to ask for assistance in this tragic situation.
