Syrian Army: Military operations in Aleppo and its countryside.

The units of the Syrian Arab army (SAA) carried out several mop-up operations in the countryside of the strategically important city of Aleppo (Halab) today.

Further military operations by units of the Syrian army took place in the countryside of Aleppo as well as in the western city of Lattakia (Latakia), while clashes are currently reported from several suburbs of the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Syrian army units carried out a series of military operations in the former economic centre of Syria, the city of Aleppo and its outskirts today.

The result of today’s mop-up operations by the Syrian forces in the countryside of Aleppo (Halab) as well as in the area of the Syrian city were the elimination of a large number of foreign-backed terrorists. The units of the Syrian army were also able to seize a large cache of arms and ammunition in the countryside of Aleppo and in the city after the clashes against the foreign-backed terrorist and jihadist forces.

Units of the Syrian Arab army (SAA) have attacked several groups of the foreign-supported terrorists in the neighbourhoods of al-Rashdin, Bustan and al-Kallaseh (Square) in the city of Aleppo. The result were many killed and wounded on the side of the armed terrorist groups, according to a source of the Syrian military.

In addition, all the seized weapons of the terrorists were destroyed after the successful battles against these terrorist groups in Bustan, al-Rashdin and al-Kallaseh Square in the city of Aleppo (Halab). Also the seized heavy and medium machine guns of the terrorists and jihadists were destroyed by the Syrian soldiers after the killing of many terrorists in these districts of Aleppo.

Further armed terrorists were eliminated in the military operations by Syrian army units in the area of Khan al-Assal (Khan al-Assal), near the city of Aleppo. Also on the al-Maslamiyeh road as well as in the area of Atareb in the south-western countryside of Aleppo, a number of armed terrorists were killed and wounded in the attacks of the Syrian army. Further weapons and ammunition of the foreign-supported terrorists were destroyed in the Northern part of al-Nairab camp by the Syrian soldiers after the successful clashes against the terrorist groups.

Another unit of the Syrian Arab army (SAA) was able to kill several members of a group of terrorists on the al-Daneh road as well as on the al-Kastillo-al-Jandoul road, both in the countryside of the Syrian city of Aleppo. Another successfully military operation was carried out by a group of Syrian soldiers on the al-Atareb-Aleppo road and in the area of al-Zurbeh, located in the south-western countryside of the former economical centre of Syria, the city of Aleppo.

In the western city of Lattakia (Latakia), the Syrian army was able to regain the control about the Syrian villages of Karm Aramo, Obeen, Abo Mekkeh, Tallet al-Khudur and Tallet Habs al-Dam. After several clashes in the western area of the known Syrian city of Lattakia (Latakia), the units of the Syrian army regained the control of the above mentioned Syrian villages, according to the correspondent of Press TV, who is currently on location. Thus, Karm Aramo village, Obeen, Tallet Habs al-Dam, Tallet al-Khudur and Abo Mekkeh are now again under the control of Syrian army units.

After the attack against Syrian civilians near the capital Damascus from yesterday evening, which caused the death of at least 14 Syrians, including some children, there are currently reports about ongoing clashes from several suburbs and districts of the Syrian capital, Damascus.

However, according to some near sources of several suburbs, the units of the Syrian army are able to push back the terrorist groups, although the clashes have led already to further damaged and destroyed buildings in these suburbs of Damascus.

In addition, the battles by the Syrian army against the foreign-backed terrorists in these suburbs are still ongoing, and thus, the final results are not yet known. At least, it seems that the Syrian army is able to push back the terrorist groups and to regain some ground in the areas.

    Hm. Are the rats importing better quality fighters? It’s good to note the SAA operations in Aleppo countryside are going well, and that they are clearing more of Latakia and its countryside. Damascus seems to be a fairly tough nut to crack, though. We’ve not gotten much news about the NDF units, local home guard units, or how the Kurds are fairing against the common enemy – – is there a reason for that. Anyway, SAA, forward, and good hunting.

        What’s the deal, MK? Did your staff flee the scene for a cruise to Mazatlan or something? Well, no body else seems to be covering the auxiliary forces either, but not having heard of any more mass roundups and killings in the Kurdish area, I’d guess that YPG’s dealing with the rats with no fanfare. One thing I’ve noticed about the Kurds (from news reports and interviews with Kurdish combat commanders) is that they don’t waste a lot of time blowing their own horn; they just go to killing the enemy, and when that’s done they take a break for a bit until some other batch of suicidal dingbats pulls their chain. The Kurds got style, man. They remind me of Yellow Jackets; don’t bother them, they won’t bother you but, if you mess with ’em, they’ll flat put a hurt on ya.

      I keep track of Press TV on Youtube, on the Press TV channel. Right now they’re pretty much featuring Hezbollah, there, but they have had a couple of pretty good debate segments as well. There are a couple of other sites that keep track of SAA operations, and it seems as though SAA is kicking some serious butt. Good. It would be nice if there were some way to pass captured weapons on to Hezbollah or YPG, but field conditions probably don’t allow the time for that. It makes me cringe to think of all those millions and millions of dollars worth of hardware being run over by tanks and BMPs, though.

      There was one debate segment where the statement was made that the rats are no more Muslims, of jihadis than is Adam’s off ox – – they’re mercenaries, mostly, just hired killers. No wonder we get word of so many atrocities, with Godless heathens turned loose upon the land. The thing is, there are so many wars to pick from, why would they go to a terrorist’s graveyard by choice? It’s a puzzle to me.
