The units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have inflicted heavy losses on the foreign-supported terrorists and religious fanatics in the central Syrian city of Homs and especially in the Western parts of the city according to sources of the Syrian military.
The mop-up operations and attacks by the troops of the Syrian military in the city of Homs were carried out by artillery and some air strikes yesterday. Thus, the third straight day of intense battles against the foreign-backed militants and Islamists in Homs and the countryside.
The units of the Syrian army used tanks, mortar units and some fighter aircrafts beside the artillery and forces on the ground. According to the Syrian state TV, the troops of the Syrian army have so far achieved an impressive success in the city of Homs and also killed a huge amount of foreign-backed jihadists and militants. Although this raises the question why it took them so long to finally act and whose guilty for the failed strategies previously to the final acts now.
The battles between the units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and radical groups of strangers and religious fanatics in the countryside of Homs as well as within the city last since some weeks, but since recent days, the army is really pushing forward and finally tries to clean the Western parts of the once beautiful Syrian town.
Beside all the massacres, bloodshed, horrible news and unbelievable videos as the beheading of a Catholic priest by a group of really radical and uneducated jihadists in Syria, this is one of the sad sides of this proxy war and attempt to overthrow the Syrian government in Damascus, which is both carried out by foreign powers within Syria.
The Syrian cities, history and even the culture seem to be more and more damaged and destroyed, while Syria was and is still the only real secular Arab nation and, for sure, not such a totalitarian dictatorship and human rights abuser as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, both best friends of Western governments.
After the cleaning of the strategically important town of al-Qusayr in June and the battles in the outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus, it seems that the Western parts of the city of Homs are soon secure and safe again, although these urban warfares can last for a long time, thus, every success of the Syrian army is good news.
But one should not think that Homs and the Western side of the city is clean of rats in some days – it could last weeks or months but, at least, more and more foreign-backed terrorists, militants and al-Qaeda thugs are removed from Syrian soil or finally “arrive under” Syrian soil.
