Syria news briefs of 29 December include evacuations of terrorists, release of kidnapped victims, bombings of residential neighborhoods, gifts to children of martyrs, and First Family visit.
In a deal brokered by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) in coordination with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), 85 “humanitarian cases” were released from terrorist captivity in eastern Ghouta. Mostly women and children were brought to hospitals in Damascus for treatment.
Five rockets were fired into the residential neighborhood of al Baath, in Hama city. One boy was injured, and several homes were damaged. Terrorists also bombed homes in al Suqaylabiyah, northwest of Hama (just three days earlier, Syrian pilot Bassam Ghassan was martyred in Hama countryside, by a US MANPAD).
Terrorists violated the de-escalation zone agreement in bombing the neighborhood of Shamal al Khat, Daraa, causing material damage (on 18 December, in terrorists’ violation, 7 persons were injured in similar bombings). In June, several SAA soldiers were slaughtered in this city, their corpses then mutilated (the ugly background, here).
The SARC supervised the evacuation of 4 busloads of terrorists — and their loving families — from Beit Jinn, to Idlib. The Syrian Arab Army confiscated their heavy weapons. Based on previous propaganda, this Syria news will eventually be maligned as “forced displacement” by NGOs aligned with NATO.
Lattakia, SANA — On the occasion of Christmas and New Year, Hmeimim-based Russian Coordination Center distributed on Friday school bags, stationery and milk to the children of the martyrs in Ghassan Zwan School and those of the Russian community in Lattakia and its countryside.
US weapons — surprise! — have been found in the recently liberated Deir Ezzor.
Also in Syria news, the al Zara’a power plant was again bombed by terrorists. This station provides electricity for Hama, and also for neighboring provinces. It was previously bombed by takfiri in March 2014, again — severely — April 2016. Today’s bombings of the important electrical grid used GRAD multi-missile rockets (in September 2016, NATO Bulgaria sent new GRADS to FSA terrorists in Idlib).
In May 2016, over 100 Syrian civilians — mostly women — were massacred by terrorists in al Zara’a.
President Bashar al Assad, First Lady Asma, and their children visited a wounded SAA soldier at home with his family, in Homs.
