LATEST


Continued Russian and regime bombing of Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, damaged another hospital on Saturday.

Pro-Assad airstrikes, including barrel bombs and seven missiles, again targeted the M10 hospital, the main trauma hospital in the opposition-held area. The Syrian American Medical Society said at least two patients were killed and 13 wounded.

The hospital, supported by international medical organizations, was knocked out of service on Wednesday by bombing. Doctors said a few staff were present on Saturday to provide triage and basic emergency care.

“The hospital is now out of service completely. There’s destruction to walls, infrastructure, equipment and generators. There are no more guards or staff left. It’s complete darkness,” said Mohammad Abu Rajab, a radiologist in the hospital.

Scores of medical facilities have been struck since Russian began its aerial intervention last September to prop up the Assad regime and Syrian military. The campaign was renewed on September 19, following a brief US-Russian ceasefire, with attacks on a UN aid convoy.

An estimated 500 civilians, including more than 100 children, have been killed since September 22. The Local Coordination Committees said another 34 were slain on Saturday, among 77 people killed across the country.

With two hospitals knocked out on Wednesday, there are also six functioning facilities in and near Aleppo. The Red Cross says there are as few as 14 doctors in the opposition districts of the city, with only two able to carry out major surgery.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said the shelling of medical facilities and personnel in Aleppo amounted to war crimes: “Their perpetrators will be held to account.”

“The bombing of Aleppo needs to finally stop! Whoever wants to fight terrorists does not attack hospitals!” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier tweeted.

A US official said, “Reports of yet another hospital being destroyed further demonstrates the total disregard for the lives of medical professionals and their patients who need critical care because of the Assad regime and Russia’s relentless campaign against the Syrian people.”

US Secretary of State John Kerry called on September 21 for a suspension of Russian and Syrian military flights over areas of humanitarian need, but the demand was immediately rejected by Damascus and Moscow.

Kerry subsequently said the US would cut off contacts with Russia — with whom it has pursued a political process for more than three years — but is continuing to speak with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said Kerry called Lavrov again on Saturday, using the conversation to put out Moscow’s standard line blaming Washington and the rebels for fighting:

They continued discussion of the situation in Syria, including opportunities for normalization of the situation in Aleppo, where illegal armed groups, despite of the Russian-American agreements on cessation of fire by the conflicting sides, continue fighting. Many groups of the “moderate” Syrian opposition refuse to dissociate themselves from Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists, which are not subject to the cease-fire.

Russian Airstrikes & Foreign Militias Seek Advance North of City

While attacking civilian areas in the city, Russian and Syrian warplanes also tried to support a further advance to the north, tightening the siege of the opposition-held neighborhoods. Pro-Assad foreign militia and the Syrian military — having secured the Handarat camp on Thursday — attacked in the Suleiman al Halabi neighborhood and the residential Bustan al Basha quarter.

Rebels claimed that they regained buildings that were briefly captured in Bustan al-Basha and that repelled attacks on the disused al-Kindi hospital.

The Russian-regime warplanes reportedly bombed another water plant in support of the offensive.

Airstrikes damaged power lines to the south of the city last week, cutting off water to 1.75 million people in both regime and opposition areas.


Syrian Military’s Chief of Staff Visits Northern Hama Amid Rebel Advance

Trying to raise morale, State media is proclaiming a visit by the Syrian military’s Chief of Staff to northern Hama Province, where rebels have captured a wide front of towns and villages north of Hama city.

General Ali Abdullah Ayoub and officer “inspected the readiness of army units” on Saturday.

Rebels began their offensive at the end of August, taking four towns and a series of villages as they closed within 10 km (6 miles) of Hama city. They renewed the advance with the capture of the fortified village of Ma’an, followed by the seizure of more territory.

Syrian State news agency SANA makes no reference to any rebel gains, but says, “Ayoub provided the soldiers with instructions and stressed the need for them to maintain the highest degree of readiness to carry out their duties in the optimal manner”.

  1. 2 new hospitals and a water pump station in 24 hours, but please don’t tell it to Kerry(Obama) because US will cut-off the relations with Russia (of course ,only on the prolonged amazing diplomacy effort regarding Syria)

  2. So once again, in spite of the headline, ,the hospital was not targetted but incurred minor damage due to proximity of the bombing.

    Had the hospital been hit or regretted, it would have been destroyed

    • The damage was far from minor, and seven missiles and barrel bombs — in the second attack in four days — indicates targeting.

      • Scott,

        With the bombs the russian airforce are using, including massive bunker busting bombs, the hospital would have been totally destroyed if really targeted.

        • The hospital is destroyed. You don’t have to drop a bomb directly on something gto destroy it. the propaganda works because of the low iq of Russians and Russian trolls

        • Genome45,

          You do realize that most Russian bombs are unguided and thus not precise?

          You do realize that barrel bombs were used in the latest attack?

          You do realize that bunker busters were not used in the attack?

          Etc. etc.

          S.

          • Scott,

            Not of those arguments support your claim that the hospital was targeted?

            Unless you have radio intercepts of the pilots being told to target the hospital or the ability to read the minds of the pilots, there is no evidence to suggest the hospital was being targeted.

            Furthermore, the fact the hospital was not hit after 4 days of bombing suggests it was not a target.

            barrel bombs are gravity bombs and highly ineffective at destroying buildings.

        • Andre,

          You did see the photographs of the rubble of part of the building?

          You did see the photographs of the damage inside?

          You did read the witness testimony?

          You did note the patients who were killed?

          You did notice the scores of other hospitals, clinics, drugs warehouses, blood banks, and rescue centers hit?

          Of course not.

          S.

          • Rubble of PART of the building is not evidence the hospital was targeted. Nor is damage. This is consistent with bombs landing nearby. witness testimony has no credibility in this propaganda war.
            According to the….ahem….”Syrian American Medical Society”, 2 patients died. What was the cause of death?

            Being “hit” or “damaged” is not the same thing as being targeted. You yourself have argued that the use of non precision weapons makes. You want to have it both ways Scott. You claim that hospitals are bring targeted because they are damaged, but at the same time, arguing they are not being directly hit because no guides munitions are being used.

            • If Putin himself came and told you “I bomb the hospitals in rebel areas on purpose” you would have spouted the same BS Andre.. its funny now if it wasnt so pathetic..

              • “I bomb the hospitals in rebel areas on purpose” you would have spouted the same BS Andre.. its funny now if it wasnt so pathetic..

                Again, being damaged by bombs in the area are not the same as being targeted Caligola. I am sure you understand the difference.

  3. Would you all give a rest with those hospitals? First off all they are being used to treat injured rebel fighters…since aleppo is sorrounded there’s nowhere else they could be treated for serious injuries, is it? ..when a civilian hospital is provideing medical services to armed ennemy combatants it becomes a military target!
    What do you expect from the Syrian military…to allow them to recover in hospital and let them go back to the front lines after…instead of targeting them given the opportunity???
    As for the civilians…those are people that that live in rebel controlled territory that clearly support the rebellion..despite several warnings from government to leave those areas they choose to remain and by doing that they have accepted the consequences of their decision!..What do you expect?…to treat supporters of an armed rebellion even if they don’t carry weapons…with flowers and chocolates???..if you embrace the ideas of an armed rebellion that means you support the fighters of that rebellion and indirectlly approve their actions…sorry from a military perspective that makes you also an ennemy that should be annihilated !
    The syrian military and allies must do whatever they have to win using any means necesary!

    • Stefan,

      Thank you for your concise defense of war crimes and violations of international humanitarian law — laws that have been accepted by all those who believe in decency rather than murder.

      S.

      • Thank you for your concise defense of war crimes and violations of international humanitarian law

        While you have a valid point, the rebels have shown no regard for either, not to mention their determination to impose their extremist religious views on those under their control.

    • “The syrian military and allies must do whatever they have to win using any means necesary!”

      It is funny to observe the total colapse of the much-vaunted anti-imperialist moral upground. But don´t worry! next time Israel hits gaza they will instanly forge a new one.

      • It is funny to observe the total colapse of the much-vaunted anti-imperialist moral upground

        Given the fact the US proudly killed half a million children in Iraq, you imperialists don’t habesntbudiness talking about morality

    • @Stefan,
      Or, you know, they could just negotiate with the people who are tired of arbitrary rule by the Assad family, and are not thrilled about the Persian-Russian occupation of Arab lands, and, I don’t know … try for a system based on human dignity and the rule of law?

      Some might argue that if Assad had just listened to the people marching for dignity (the name of the original protests) instead of sending their friends and neighbors out to shoot them, this whole war could have been avoided and Assad would still be president of all of Syria.

      • they could just negotiate with the people who are tired of arbitrary rule by the Assad family
        You mean like the population of Bahrain who are tired of the tyrannical rule of the Khalifa family?

        are not thrilled about the Persian-Russian occupation of Arab lands

        What Arab lands are Persian-Russian occupied?

        … try for a system based on human dignity and the rule of law?

        Like what Arab country? Oh that’s right, there isn’t one and the so called rebels don’t believe in one.
        FYI. Assad is still president of all of Syria.

    • “sorry from a military perspective that makes you also an ennemy that should be annihilated !”. Brilliant! All those that disagree with you should be annihilated. Exactly how an 8 year old thinks. Good to demonstrate the greatness of your civilization. Is there any wonder why Russia is a piece of junk as a country?

      • Brilliant! All those that disagree with you should be annihilated. Exactly how an 8 year old thinks.

        You mean love me the president you ejected who declared the world was eirher with the US or with the terrorists?

        How ironic hey? Today he would be saying “you are either with us, or you against the terrorist”

        • You missed your calling andre, youre so good at spinning you should grab some plates and go work at a Greek restaurant. Probably pays better than serving the czars info wars

  4. I suspect the Russians are using the same GPS/Mobile or Radio Comms tracking on the rebels as the Russians did on the Ukrainian troops (ie surveil for Ukrainian communications on radio or mobile phones then use the coordinates of those electronic signals emitted from those Ukrainian devices to target them via Russian jets and artilery) but if that is the case then it exposes a glaring weakness of such an approach which is that MOST electronic signals from a modern communications devices can be spoofed, in fact ANY electronic device that communicates electronically can be spoofed including drones – that’s how the Iranians regularly capture US drones that fly over Iran, if the IRGC can do it so can rebels, I’ve posted the link on how to possibly this on another thread – and in case anyone is wondering what a spoofing attack is here are a few links explaining what they are:
    .
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoofing_attack
    .
    Excerpt from the above link: “A GPS spoofing attack attempts to deceive a GPS receiver by broadcasting incorrect GPS signals, structured to resemble a set of normal GPS signals, or by rebroadcasting genuine signals captured elsewhere or at a different time. These spoofed signals may be modified in such a way as to cause the receiver to estimate its position to be somewhere other than where it actually is, or to be located where it is but at a different time, as determined by the attacker. One common form of a GPS spoofing attack, commonly termed a carry-off attack, begins by broadcasting signals synchronized with the genuine signals observed by the target receiver. The power of the counterfeit signals is then gradually increased and drawn away from the genuine signals. It has been suggested that the capture of a Lockheed RQ-170 drone aircraft in northeastern Iran in December, 2011 was the result of such an attack.[3] GPS spoofing attacks had been predicted and discussed in the GPS community previously, but no known example of a malicious spoofing attack has yet been confirmed”
    .
    Here’s a new scientist article – which goes into more detail then the Wiki link – on GPS spoofing:
    .
    https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn20202-gps-chaos-how-a-30-box-can-jam-your-life/
    .
    Excerpt from above link: “GPS works thanks to radio signals from satellites. The dominant provider is still the US military’s NavStar network, with at least 24 satellites operating at any given time, positioned so that you can always see four of them from anywhere on the planet’s surface…Last has first-hand experience of how easy it is to block a GPS signal, and the effects it can have on modern technology. In 2010, he conducted an experiment in the North Sea, aboard the THV Galatea, a 500-tonne ship. The Galatea is the pride of its fleet, with all the latest navigation equipment. Last wanted to find out how it would cope without GPS. So he used a simple jamming device that overwhelmed the GPS signal by broadcasting noise on the same frequency as the satellites. When Last activated the jammer, the ship went haywire. According to the electronic display on the ship’s bridge, the Galatea was suddenly flying at Mach speeds over northern Europe and Ireland. Then alarms sounded. The ship’s navigation backup – its gyrocompass – crashed, because it uses GPS to provide corrections. The radar did the same. Even the ship’s satellite communications failed, because GPS points the antenna in the right direction. ‘“The crew were well trained and briefed, so they knew what was going on,” says Last. “But, like us, they were surprised.”’
    .
    If a basic electronic jamming device can do this much damage to a NATO standard military ship then what kind of damage you think rebels can do on a cruddy Iranian/IRGC comms devices?
    .
    So how you make a GPS jammer? This short video shows how:

    .
    Here’s another link:

    http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Create-Your-Signal-Jammer/
    .
    http://www.ladyada.net/make/wavebubble/
    .
    And in case anyone wondering how a Russian drone could be spoofed (which is more primitive then the US drone) like the Iranians did with the US drones mentioned above here’s a link:
    .
    http://www.poepper.net/papers/ccs139-tippenhauer.pdf
    .
    So in summary: If you want to stop Afghan Shiite units from calling Russian jets for support (especially during a rebel offensive?), then starting jamming their (ie the Afghan Shiite and IRGC units) radio and mobile communications devices. If you want to stop Russian/Iranian/Hezbollah drones from watching your positions start spoofing like (see above link) like the Iranians did with US drones.

    • You really live in la la land K9. Hoping the rebels can spoof the Russians, who are world leaders in electronic warfare, is like expecting a chimp to write a dissertation on thermodynamics

  5. Here’s an interesting tweet that mentions the names of the ALL the regime units stationed at the Hama front:
    .
    https://twitter.com/abdallaha92/status/782279314872033280
    .
    Excerpt from above link: “The 3rd Armored Division is also in Hama, the same Division that committed the Hama massacre, and is one of Assad’s most loyal Divisions. The 555th Special Forces Regiment of the 4th Armored Division is in Hama as well. It is a mostly alawite Division with fulltime soldiers. Then there is Panther Forces, part of Tiger Forces. They were redircted from Palmyra, not Aleppo. Tiger Forces in Aleppo are Cheetah forces…The Syrian Marines, which is part of the Republican Guard r in Hama. Assad has been using them alot in 2016, taking them away from Latakia. we also have the Desert Hawks. They are made up of volunteers fighting in a private militia. They where redeployed from Palmyra to Hama. There are several NDF groups fighting as well. Units from Mhardeh, Suqaylabiyah, Taybat Al-Imam, Hama City, and Masyaf, and Qalamoun Shield”
    .
    Definitely recommend to read.

  6. @Andre, the Russians are not making life unlivable in rebel portions of Syria by accident. It is part of a well-tried counter-insurgency strategy that has been employed by (off the top of my head, to give just three examples) the Americans in Vietnam in the 1960s, the Russians in Afghanistan in the 1980s, the Peruvians against the Shining Path in the Andes in the 1980s and 1990s. The premise is that instead of appealing directly to hearts and minds, you (to quote one US general in Vietnam): “grab ’em by the balls, and hearts and minds will follow.”

    The strategy in the three cases I mentioned did more to fuel the problem than to fix it. But the Russians seem to feel it works.

    It’s morally wrong, and I think the Russians are wrong as a practical matter in believing that’ll it will work in Syria. But do us a favour, and don’t pretend that what’s happening isn’t what’s happening.

  7. Damascus has been saved from the war.Homs has been saved from the war.

    Now it’s time for Aleppo to be completely taken by the governement.

    I know people are going to scream at the barrage , russian airforce and syrian ground troop will unleash on rebel position, but it has to be done. You just have one thing to remember, the battle of Aleppo has been ongoing for more than 4 years now, it has to finish.

    The 1-2 months blitzkrieg needed to finish off the rebel pockets in Aleppo will cost less life and death than several more years of fighting will. So it’s necessary to end this battle.

    The rebels have a huge responsability. Their refusal to leave Aleppo is the main reason of this battle happening. Military they have lost, they are cornered, besieged and have been losing ground for the past 2 years continously around the city.

    If the rebels cared about Aleppo they would have left for the city to not be destroyed. But they don’t care They are there to destroy and steal everything. They are foreigners, or syrians from Idlib or the Aleppo countryside. There is little to no Aleppo resident with the rebels.

    Aleppo was a pro governement city that got invaded by islamists from the coutryside in 2012. It’s time to finish this long battle and bring back the peace in Aleppo.

    • So… the regime has to destroy Aleppo in order to save it? Haven’t I heard that phrase somewhere before …

      Your characterization of the rebels as foreigners (Syrians from other parts of Syria) who need to be displaced by Russian and Iranian forces is rather amusing …

      • The regime has to destroy part of Aleppo in order to decisevely defeat the rebels and stop the fighting there.

        There is no fighting anymore in Homs and it’s much more peaceful now than Aleppo is. The battle of Aleppo has lasted too much years, it has to end now.

        It’s the rebels who refuse to go back from where they come and let Aleppo be peaceful. They have no chance to win and have been defeated military , but still they have dug in ad refuse to leave. There are no other choices.

        The funniest part is when a country who has dropped two nuclear bomb on purely civilians objective in Japan killing hundred of thousands in seconds and has never apologized for it, is now complaining than 1000 civilians may die in a conventional bombing.

        • And they haven’t dropped any since, because they’ve learned something in the meantime. I am not sure past crimes can be used to justify current ones.

          The regime couldn’t defeat the rebels, so now they are calling on the Russians to level the area. Like a petulant child: If they can’t govern it, nobody will.

          • They haven’t dropped any more because since then they haven’t meet any adversaries that could offer stiff resistance or they have those foes had also backing (Vietnam ,Koreea) and launching an A bomb could have had very undesirable consequences…If the US would have thought that they would completlly get away with it…they would have nuked in both wars!

        • They weren’t dropped on civilians, they were dropped on military industrial complexes. Otherwise Tokyo would have been hit.
          .
          At least try and keep your lies relatively accurate

          • Yes. I’m also reluctant to compare the US’ war against Japanese Imperialism 70 years ago to the Russian war to save the Assad family business today along any dimension.

            • Jihadism is the top menace in the world. It must be defeated everywhere it appears.

              And Aleppo must be freed of this flea.

          • You are trying to justify the biggest warcrime of all time?

            There were little to no military objective in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, some soldiers in garrisons but nothing more. Pearlharbour was a military target, Hioshima and Nagazaki were cities.

            200 000+ civilians killed by two bombs. The US still have the world record for the murder of civilians and still haven’t began the simpliest apology.

            Result: The US have no right to criticize any bombing happenning in any country in the world. Absolute zero moral right.

            • I think everyone has the right to call a crime a crime, and I don’t think old atrocities can be used to justify current ones.

              And let’s not pretend this conflict is about anything other than the incompetent son of a dictator not wanted to give up his plaything.

              • Woody,

                You are completely missing the point if you think it is about Assad. Assad is at best a symbol of unity among the loyalists, but the war is way more than about him.

                It’s about a secular, arab nationalist Syria vs an islamic state (with several nuance between ISIS, Nusra and Muslim brotherhood).

                That’s the real fight. The civil war has unleashed the ferocious islamist forces that had been kept on a tight leash since Assad father crushed them.

                Also, Iran/Hezbollah help Syria because they are on their side against Israel and because the shia minority is in danger if the sunni islamists win.

      • @Genome, yeah, I’ve heard the line before that Hezballah is fighting against terrorism and the Iranian Theocracy is fighting to preserve Arab secularism. And that the people screaming “Assad, or we burn the country!” before burning the country are the sane Syrians, and that Assad worship (“God, Bashar and its enough!) is a form of secularism. I don’t buy a word of it.

        Assad had other choices rather than oppression to preserve Syria , and he chose instead unrestrained violence to destroy it. In part he is like his father , but far less competent. His father had at least had the smarts to do the necessary political deals along with military action. The son has no clue.

        • Woody,

          The war isn’t about Bashar.

          He could die tomorrow and the war would still continue for years. It’s about two system, a secular authoritarian system who is siding on the arab nationalism axis, and fanatized islamic state who is a danger for the whole region and even the world.

          • You could get rid of Bashar tomorrow, and sign a compromise deal based on greater local governance and power-sharing within 6 months. The debate over governing the Arab world would continue, but without the barbaric bombings.

            And the appeal of international jihadism would decline: once the fighting stops, if it can’t collect the trash, the people aren’t going to support it.

            • You really think you can compromise and sign a deal with the likes of Nusra, Jaysh al Fateh, Jund al Aqsa, Arhar al Sham or Jaysh al Islam?

              All the biggest rebel factions are hardline islamists and jihadists, except in the very southern part of the country.

              Tha majority of rebels would outright reject any kind of deal not giving them their islamic state. They have to be military defeated.

              • Anybody who thinks they can better achieve what they want through negotiation rather than violence is a potential partner. Hard to tell who’ll that all will consist of until you engage in negotiations.

                It won’t include ISIS, obviously. There are enough Syrians on the rebel side in various groups who can be called upon to negotiate. Alas, there aren’t any on the regime side.

                They seem to have one mode: barbarism, in the cause of the Assad monarchy. The regime isn’t actually that much different from ISIS in that way. Except that ISIS uses its violence to glorifies God, and the regime glorifies Assad as if he were a god.

            • Anybody who thinks they can better achieve what they want through negotiation rather than violence is a potential partner.

              Those jihadi groups clearly don’t and even fight among each other in spite of the fact they share the same goals and nihilistic ideology

            • You could get rid of Bashar tomorrow, and sign a compromise deal based on greater local governance and power-sharing within 6 months.

              Wow, the Friedman unit is back. Oh and Woody, you forgot to mention how it would be a cakewalk and that we would be greeted as liberators.

      • Or another way to look at it is that Iranian and Lebanese forces should get out of allepo

        Why whenhey wereninvisted by the sovereign and legitimate government of Syria? Isn’t that for Syria to decide or has the US annexed Aleppo?

  8. All the specualtion is a waste of time. The Russians/Iranians are pressing their agenda aggressively in the next few months to capitalize on Obama’s pacivity. The next leader of the USA will definitely re-calibrate in Syria. How, we will see. The rebels/terrorists/jihadis will still be a significant fighting force when/if Aleppo is under the control of the regime.

    • At this point honestly the US should just completely withdraw from operations in Syria and completely give up. They only make things worst. They are clueless, impotent and every policy they tried ended in an enormous failure.

      They should just concentrate on giving heelp to Iraki governement as long as they are tolerated and just leave Syria completely.

      In Syria, they failed completely. The “nationalist and pro democracy syrian rebels” were a myth and it was debunked. Nusra is the alpha and omega of the rebels currently and the other smaller groups are islamists too. Their training program ended in a massive failure.

      They also betrayed the Kurds in favour of Turkey.

      US, you are not needed nor wanted in Syria. Leave completely and let the Syria/Russia/Iran/Irak alliance do the work and defeat the jihadists.

        • In this case just Sunni “jihadis”, you do have a point that there is a significant number (i’ve seen reports up to 60,000) Shia jihadis in theater as well. It’s a big mess. From my perspective the Russians/Iranians/Shia merc’s have a tiger by the tail. No cheap solution. Russian firepower should allow regime forces to take most large populations centers. But if they venture outside of the wire, they are going to encounter a lot of resistance. Long run, years out, I’d give the advantage to the Sunni demographics. Those young uneducated, unemployed youngsters can easily be recruited into the resistance.

        • When you use the term “jihadists” you mean only sunni muslims?

          Of course. They are the suicide bomber bombing, head chopping cannibals fighting for a caliphate.

          The shiites are fighting to support the secular, non religious fundamentalist, non takfiri sovereign government of Syria

          • Shiite jihadists which you support andre.. are not fighting for secularism.. they are fighting for the supreme leader of the Islamic State of Iran.. shiites chop just as many heads off and burn just as many people.. they just have access to an airforce to do it with,.
            Remember that your supporting Lebanese, Iraqi, Iranian, and Afghani shiite jihadists when you spout your BS

            • “The shiites are fighting to support the secular, non religious fundamentalist, non takfiri sovereign government of Syria”

              No, shiites are fighting to support and expand shiism in the region.

            • Shiite jihadists which you support andre.. are not fighting for secularism.. they are fighting for the supreme leader of the Islamic State of Iran..

              False. They are not and have not expressed any interest in turning Syria into a Shiite Caliphate or vassal of Iran.

              shiites chop just as many heads off and burn just as many people

              According to what evidnce? Oh that’s right, you don’t have any. :)


              Remember that your supporting Lebanese, Iraqi, Iranian, and Afghani shiite jihadists when you spout your BS

              There are no Lebanese, Iraqi, Iranian, and Afghani shiite jihadists . They are fighting to protect a secular leader. The ones suicide bombing, head chopping and creating an Islamic state are the Saudi backed nut cases that you support.

  9. Update:
    .
    #Aleppo: 1) “fierce clashes in Bustan Pasha & Sheikh Kheder as pro-Regime forces are trying to take over Water Company. ” – QalaatAlMudiq
    .
    Rig the buildings the regime fighters want to capture with IEDs (preferably including using Russian incendiary munitions that were duds) and then attempt to re-capture those buildings, if rebels do lose them, in night-time raids and make sure when you do launch a raid/offensive hide the GPS signals on your mobile phones and other electronic communications using the youtube link I’ve posted in the above post.
    .
    2) “Sham Legion fires Grad missiles at the Regime’s foreign militia in #Handarat. ” – CombatChris1
    .
    Genuine question – when rebels shell an area with rockets do they use drones to better target regime units like they do with their mortars? If not why not?
    .
    #Hama: “Reports an underground HQ of Jaish al-Izzah has been struck by a Russian missile in Hama” – JohnArterbury
    .
    This is why I mentioned in the above post that rebels should learn how to hide/block their GPS signaling from their mobile phones and radio communication.
    .
    #Observation: Fascinating analysis by Tobias Schneider again “Intact armor being left behind on retreat is a sign of either lack of coordination or – equally likely – fuel. 14+ so far in N Hama. Lack of fuel could be due to logistics trouble (uncommon for SAA) or corruption: Syria in midst of fuel crisis. At current black market fuel prices, monthly fuel allowance of a single tank could double the wages of 40+ conscripts or militiamen. Most loyalist militia commanders, as well as number of SAA units, in North Hama are well known even inside regime for fuel smuggling.” – tobiaschneider
    .
    Rebels can turn this problem into a strategic problem for the regime by regularly sending raiding parties to destroy regime oil/gas pipelines and oil/gas fields. If rebels win the war they can rebuild those pipelines and oilfield but if they lose they leave the regime with nothing.

    • Rig the buildings the regime fighters want to capture with IEDs (preferably including using Russian incendiary munitions that were duds) and then attempt to re-capture those buildings, if rebels do lose them, in night-time raids and make sure when you do launch a raid/offensive hide the GPS…

      Cue image of Jolani and half a dozen takfiris huddled around an IPad scouring through K9’s instructions “yallah, change of plans. If those IEDs are not ready by Friday prayers, someone is going to lose their head.”
