Syrian Arab Army At Full Speed All Over Syria

SAA brave soldier

While the US and its stooges, it doesn’t have allies, rush to push for a peace solution [sic] to the Syrian crisis through showing more support to the terrorists from Nusra Front fighting the Syrian Arab Army under the umbrella of FSA or moderate terrorist groups, the Syrian Arab Army is beating them to achieve internal peace on the ground. Al-Qussayr battle might be taking most of the news coverage but who follows the movement of the SAA, the NDF National Defense Forces, the Syrian Resistance and the Baath Militia will notice the terrorists do not have any safe heaven except where the area they infested is of less strategical importance and was received by some of the locals like the case of Raqqa city and left for a later stage, especially the locals who received the terrorists are more than regretting.

The Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad will address the nation and of course the world in one of his hundreds of ‘rare’ appearances in an interview with the Lebanese Al Manar TV station, banned in most of the countries of the western ‘free world’, and in which he confirms Syria has received the first shipment of the Russian state of the art S300 air-defense missiles, but we will not concentrate much, as usual, on the political movements or on the type of weapons received, it’s these men of the Syrian Arab Army and the amazing Syrian people who are winning the world’s biggest terror war imposed on them by world’s most evil organization NATO.

Even in the deep jungles of the Amazon they know by now that Al-Qussayr battle in the military sense is over, the terrorists are squeezed in pockets in the northern part of the city where they’ve taken large number of civilians as human shields and yet the SAA is advancing and circling them further. Dhabha airport was totally cleansed from the terrorists yesterday thus cutting any supply or fleeing route left for the remnants of the terrorists in the city. It might take a few more days to announce the city totally free of terror. Arjoun & Al-Barak towns were restored today.

Based on a Lebanese newspaper which made the headlines the Syrian Arab Army eyeing Aleppo, all the attention moved from Qussayr battle to Aleppo, but the Aleppo front was never quiet, the entire southern Aleppo countryside was cleansed in the past 10 days, and SAA moved into selected towns and villages in the north cutting terrorists supply routes like the case of Dhahret Abd Rabbo cleared 3 days ago, and NDF men managed to cleanse Dhahret Qaraa leaving tens of Nusra Front terrorists taken by surprise, and Anadan on the way to the besieged Nobol & Zahra towns.

The killing of 3 spies in western Idleb by security forces, 1 from the USA, another from the UK and a third unknown was enough yesterday to prove the situation in Idleb and its countryside might not sound like what the western mainstream media tries to imply the city and its countryside is out of the state’s control, actually, the governor of the province practices his work from his office in the center of the city and all state departments are working as normal, only towns infested by terrorists make the headlines in NATO propaganda outlets.

Damascus countryside witnessed a number of operations by the SAA and security forces especially in the surprise move into Beit Sehem & Sidi Miqdad towns located between Sayyedeh Zaynab town holding the shrine of the prophet’s granddaughter which was under the radar of the prehistoric apes destroying all shrines and graves, their latest was in Raqqa city destroying the grave of prophet Ibrahim (Abram), and between the Damascus International Airport road.

Der Attiyeh & Yabroud in northern Damascus countryside

 

Exclusive to Syrianews: In the northern Damascus countryside and in between Der Attiyeh and Yabroud towns a unit of the SAA lured a convoy of Nusra Front terrorists into a trap. Our local sources confirmed the Nusra Front terrorists wanted to attack a large radar station in the area which monitors the air passage through the borders with Lebanon on their way heading to aid their failing friends in Qussayr, in an apparently coordinated move with the Israelis, but met a very very bad fate when their 14 flatbed cars mounted with machine-guns and packed with terrorists were trapped in the valley below the radar hill and exterminated in full. The locals confirm the death of at least 65 terrorists whose bodies are left in the open in the valley with their destroyed vehicles as this minute.

The following video report by ANNA News from Darayya town in southern Damascus countryside is self-explanatory:

The world will be grateful to the amazing withstanding of the Syrian people and their amazing brave Syrian Arab Army in defeating NATO’s best assets from Al-Qaeda terrorists and exposing their links with the Israelis, some US senators like John McCain and the international Muslim Brotherhood organization.

Report: 500 Terrorist Groups Fighting Syrian Gov’t

TEHRAN (FNA)- Over 500 terrorist cells and groups are now fighting against Bashar al-Assad’s government in different parts of Syria, media reports disclosed on Tuesday.

The Palestinian Almanar weekly quoted informed sources as saying that the size of these networks and the number of their members varies depending on who is sponsoring them.

The sources, who asked to remain anonymous in fear of their life, added that over 85% of these criminals are non-Syrians who have come from different continents and have been recruited by Saudi and Qatari spies and later trained in special training camps in Turkey.

The weekly added that these networks are receiving Israeli made weapon cargos paid by Persian Gulf Arab Sheikhs.

The sources also said that these terrorist cells and groups are paid salaries for operations in Syria.

The Syrian crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

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

In an interview broadcast on Turkish television in April, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that if the militants take power in Syria they could destabilize the entire Middle Eastern region for decades.

“If the unrest in Syria leads to the partitioning of the country, or if the terrorist forces take control… the situation will inevitably spill over into neighboring countries and create a domino effect throughout the Middle East and beyond,” he added.

Syria: Public Execution Victims Identified as Civilians

Two weeks ago, Syria Report posted an article detailing the public execution of three men in Ar-Raqqah city. On March 4, 2013 the city fell in the hands of three Jihadist organisations; the infamous Jabhat al-Nusra, Harakat Ahrar as-Sham and the brigade of Huthaya bin al-Yaman.

In the following video, three men can be seen kneeling, bound and blindfolded as armed and masked men guard them. Noticeable is the black standard of the Islamic State of Iraq. A speech is then read out to the gathered crowd, stating the executions are in retaliation for the massacres of Sunnis and singles out Alawites in particular. Sectarian rhetoric such as this appears to be growing in regularity in recent weeks.

Russia Confirms S-300 Missiles to Syria

Russia has criticized the end of the European Union’s end of the arms embargo on armed groups and added that the S-300 missile defence system is a “stabalising factor” in Syria.

Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov was referring to the results of Monday’s meeting in Brussels between EU member state representatives.

Russia insists that its own sale of arms to the Syrian government helps the international effort to end the two-year-long conflict. “Those systems by definition cannot be used by militant groups on the battlefield,” Ryabkov said. “We consider this delivery a factor of stabilization. We believe that moves like this one to a great degree restrain some hotheads from escalating the conflict to the international scale, from involving external forces.”

The Syrian army has successfully concluded the first phase of its operation in the strategic western city of Qusayr.

According to reports from the city, an unknown number of security agents from different foreign countries have been detained or killed during the operation.

Syrian forces have inflicted major losses on the militants in Qusayr, destroying their weaponry and equipment.

The Syrian army has also found several caches of weapons, mostly containing israeli-made ammunition.

Qusayr, which is located in the central province of Homs, has been the scene of fierce clashes between Syrian forces and militants over the past few days.

The senior commander of the terrorist group al-Nusra Front, Abu Omar, was among those killed in battle on May 21.

The crisis in Syria began in March 2011.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on May 18 that militants from 29 different countries were fighting against the government in different parts of the country.

President Assad also said in April that the situation in Syria was improving as the army enjoyed people’s support in the fight against terrorism.

The Syrian army said in a statement issued on May 21 that it had destroyed an Israeli military vehicle that drove toward the village of Bir Ajam, located in the Israeli-occupied Syrian territory of the Golan Heights.

Russia Adds Two More Warships To Mediterranean Task Force Near Syria

A few days when reporting that the Russian Pacific fleet had crossed the Suez canal for the first time in decades in order to form a Mediterranean task force parked in Cyprus for obvious symbolic reasons (in close proximity to Syria and the Israel-parked Kearsarge), some observed that while the submarine support was adequate, the actual warship fleet designated to support any potential escalation in Syria would be largely insufficient. Perhaps the Russian Navy heard these complaints, and several hours ago RIA reported that two extra warships from the Russian Black Sea fleet had joined the Mediterranean task force, citing Capt. First Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachyov, has said. None of these recent deployment should come as a surprise: in March Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said a permanent naval task force in the Mediterranean was needed to defend Russia’s interests in the region. Read Syria, Cyrpus (where the task force will be on anchor indefinitely), and, of course, any and all western offensive involving Iran. And slowly but surely said task force is nearing completion.

“During a planned rotation, large landing ships Nikolai Filchenkov and Azov from Russia’s Black Sea Fleet have started performing their tasks in the Mediterranean,” Trukhachyov said.

The two ships in question:

the Azov

and the Filchenkov

 

 

The two ships will be added to a fleet that is becoming increasingly imposing in both numbers and capability: the task force currently includes vessels from the Pacific, Northern, Baltic and Black Sea fleets: the Admiral Panteleyev and Severomorsk destroyers, the Yaroslav Mudry frigate, the Peresvet and Admiral Nevelskoi amphibious warfare ships, the Fotiy Krylov, Altai and SB-921 salvage/rescue tugs, the PM-138 repair ship, the Pechenga, Lena and Dubna tankers. The task force may be enlarged to include nuclear submarines.

Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov, head of the parliamentary defense committee, previously told RIA Novosti that the Mediterranean task force should be comprised of 10 warships and support vessels as part of several tactical groups tasked with attack, antisubmarine warfare and minesweeping.

In other words, check to you America, we are ready.

And speaking of checking, just a month earlier it was the US that was deploying its own naval support in the area with the LHD-3 Kearsarge crossing the Suez canal, and now on anchor in Israel. Here is a 60 second timelapse video of what it looks like when a US naval ship cross the Suez Canal, direction escalation.

Main al-Nusra Front commander killed in Qusayr clashes

Syrian troops celebrate as they take control of the village of Haydariyah, some 7 km outside al-Qusayr on May 20, 2013.

The main commander of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front has been reportedly killed in clashes with the Syrian army in the western city of al-Qusayr.

According to Syria’s national television, top al-Nusra Front commander identified as Abu Omar was killed in al-Qusayr on Tuesday as clashes between Syrian troops and foreign-backed militants in the border town entered their third day.

The Syrian army says it is now in control of more than 70 percent of the strategic city, which connects the capital city of Damascus to the Mediterranean port of Tartous.

Intense fighting is reported to be still under way in some parts of al-Qusayr, about 30 km southwest of Homs, with the Syrian army making advances on terrorist groups fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

According to Syria’s official news agency, SANA, scores of militants were killed in clashes with government forces on Tuesday. Syrian troops also defused several explosive devices in the city.

Syrian troops entered al-Qusayr from several directions on May 19 after weeks of clashes with militants. Syrian sources say over 100 militants have been killed in the military operation to clear al-Qusayr of militants.

On Monday, Syrian army confiscated an Israeli military vehicle used by foreign-backed militants in al-Qusayr. A number of military uniforms as well as wiretapping and jamming equipment were found in the vehicle.

Syrian army destroys Israeli military vehicle in Golan Heights

File photo shows the line that separates Syria from the Israeli-occupied lands on the Golan Heights.

 

Syria says its army has destroyed an Israeli military vehicle that had crossed the ceasefire line in the occupied Golan Heights.

The Syrian army said in a statement issued on Tuesday that the vehicle drove toward the village of Bir Ajam, located in the “liberated area of Syrian territories where there are armed terrorist groups.”

“Following that, the Israeli enemy fired two rockets from the occupied site of Tal al-Faras toward one of our sites in al-Zubaydiah site; no casualties reported,” the statement added.

Also on Tuesday, the Israeli military said its troops had shot at a target inside Syria, following an incident where gunfire from Syria hit the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The Israeli regime has recently boosted its military activities in the Golan Heights, where clashes between the Syrian army and the militant groups continue.

Syria has been gripped by unrest for over two years, and many people, including large numbers of Syrian soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the foreign-sponsored militancy.

Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad said on May 18 that militants from 29 different countries were fighting against the government in different parts of the country.

‘Israel forces fired at target in Syria’

The file photo shows an Israeli tank on Syria’s illegally annexed Golan Heights.

The Israeli military says its troops have shot at a target inside Syria, after gunfire from Damascus hit the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The military said in a Tuesday statement that the gunfire from Damascus damaged a military vehicle without causing any injuries.

The statement added that the Israeli soldiers “returned precise fire.”

Tel Aviv has recently boosted military activities in the occupied Golan Heights, where clashes between Syrian forces and foreign-sponsored militants have spiked dramatically in recent weeks.

The Israeli military has set up a “military field hospital” at military outpost 105 in the occupied Golan Heights to treat wounded militants fighting against the government in neighboring Syria.

The Israeli military has carried out three airstrikes against Syria so far this year.

On May 5, Syria said the Israeli regime had carried out an airstrike targeting a research center in a suburb of Damascus, following heavy losses of al-Qaeda-affiliated groups at the hands of the Syrian army. According to Syrian media reports, Israeli rockets struck the Jamraya Research Center.

The Jamraya facility was also targeted in an Israeli airstrike in January.  Continue reading
