“I don’t see how Assad can bring peace or stability to an area that is majority Sunni.”
-Barack Obama

Don’t know where to start here.

1. The Syrian first lady is a Sunni.
2. Minister of Defense.
3. Vice president
4. Minister of information
5. 90% of Damascus’ inhabitants
6. 81% of the Syrian nationals.
7. 80% of the Armed Forces

And many others. Not that it matters what their orientation or religion is, they are Syrians.

Yet again an other valid example how the US intelligence agencies are aware of every situation.

On a side not, not that the Syrian Armed Forces, and the Syrian people care what anyone thinks.

3 and a half years of fighting terrorism and it only made us stronger.

Commander in Chief of the Syrian Armed Forces: Sir, you have your armed forces and your people behind you no matter what.

A full report about al-Tabaqa air base.

To be able to understand the situation in the Northeast, we should remember something.

ISIS is not undefeated, and never will be. When ISIS attacked al-Sha`er gas field where there was no SAA on sight only the security personnel and civilian workers, SAA command issued an order to retake the field, and we did not loosing a single soldier during the operation.

Like the 17th HQ, and other SAA locations in al-Raq`a, the locations were evacuated.

Few days before the attack on al-Tabaqa airbase the SAA command sent the 124th airborne brigade of the Republican Guards.

The 124th constructed a 1000 – 1500 meters parameter around the base to stop any incoming suicide bombers.

They base defense and the 124th airborne worked together to rebel the first attack, then the second, so what happened between the time the video was published and the time the base was evacuated.

First of all, the 124th was sent at first place to evacuate all the Radars and equipments from the base, and moved it to a location that we will not disclose at the moment.

The air support was diverted to the T-4 airbase, and only couple of Mig-21s were left in then base.

Two IL-76 transports arrived to load the dismantled equipments, and most of the 124th airborne in several landings inside.

The troops left were evacuated by 4 patches, the last patch was left inside till ISIS terrorists broke into the outer parameter, where they relocated.

Only a small group of soldiers that can only be addressed as heroes volunteered to cover the retreat of the 4th patch.

The orders of the evacuation came in from the highest military command, and for reasons we might not understand at the moment. But as we mentioned before, it was not due to shortage of men nor that ISIS is undefinable. It was a strategic call by the SAA command knowingly the fact that during ISIS fist two attacks we only lost 11 men where ISIS lost hundreds, and that the 124th along side the heroes of the airport security could have lasted and would be still fighting ISIS off till now, but orders are orders.

The General Command vowed to continue its diligent efforts to combat terrorism and rid Syria of its evil, urging all those who were misled into bearing arms against the state to turn themselves in and benefit from amnesty decrees.

A field commander in the Syrian Army told SANA’s correspondent that the army inflicted heavy losses upon terrorists in terms of personnel and equipment, noting that terrorists were afraid of the idea of al-Mleiha slipping from their grasp because they viewed it as a gateway to enter Damascus through Jaramana and the capital’s southern areas.

He explained that the significance given to this town by terrorists resulted in it becoming a reservoir of terrorists from outside Syria, with Saudis, Tunisians, Algerians, Qataris, Joradnians, Yemenis, and others of foreign nationalities joining the ranks of the terrorist organizations operating there under names like “Al-Rahman Legion, Islam Army, Islamic Union of Ajnad al-Cham, and al-Qa’qa’a
Brigade,” but foremost among these terrorist groups was the notorious Jabhat al-Nusra.

The field commander said that terrorist turned al-Mleiha into their first line of defense, barricading themselves in residential areas after they forced the locals to flee, littering its streets with landmines and IEDs, and digging a network of tunnels beneath it.

Geographically speaking, the town is connected to numerous other towns in an organic manner with no clear borders between them, falling on a road running south to north up to Douma countryside.

The field commander stated that the battle against terrorism in the Eastern Ghouta will become much easier now that al-Mleiha is secured, particularly since large numbers of terrorists were eliminated there, some of them snipers.

Political analyst Afif Dalla asserted that restoring security to al-Mleiha is of critical importance due to its strategic location in Eastern Ghouta, saying that the operations carried out there by the army were very careful and deliberate in terms of geography and timing.

He added that this achievement will have tremendous effects on the course of the battle in Damascus Countryside as their loss of al-Mleiha has had a devastating effect on the morale of terrorist organizations that have suffered consecutive defeats and are weakened by infighting and current international and regional political shifts.

SyAF Pilots in Libya 1981
Celebrating the 69th Syrian Arab Army anniversary, we share these pictures for the first time.SyAF pilots were secretly sent to Libya in the early 1980s to train, and aid the Libyan AF.During that, they did several mock dogfights even with the US navy using Libyan Air Force Mig-23MS.Around 150km from the Libyan coast line, and at altitude of 10km where the maneuverability of the jet is strictly limited, a SyAF pilot flying a Mig-23MS managed to lock on a US Navy F-14 Tomcat multiple times.

Pilot is Capt. Elias

With each day that passes, the Syrian army’s battlefield victories continue to roll on, clawing back control of terrorism-fatigued towns and villages and returning families anguished by being away from home.

The Syrian army is celebrating the 69th anniversary of its foundation. Analysts suggest that the war against Syria would have debilitated the strongest of armies, even bringing about their downfall and disintegration.  The Syrian army, to the contrary, has been putting up epic resistance and holding its ground thanks to their patriotic fervor  and the support of the Syrian people in whose hands they entrusted the fate of their country.

Let alone theories and comparisons: only the Syrian soldiers are privy to the travails of the battlefield, recounting details of courage and patriotism that have made them a household name.

Ghazi Hassan, who suffered stabs of pain over three months after he was injured while defending Aleppo Central Prison, continued to provide moral support for his comrades in arms, encouraging them to go ahead in their mission.

“Three months before the siege [of Aleppo Central Prison] was broken, I sustained an injury to my left thigh and a bone fracture, and due to the siege’s circumstances, I did not get the necessary treatment, but my comrades were there for me,” he recalls.

Despite his pain, Ghazi would not let his family in on his injury, preferring to spare them the worry. When they called, he would only relay to them news about his brother, who was among the Syrian troops who liberated Aleppo’s prison.

“When the prison was liberated, I asked Ghazi to pose for the camera so that I can see him  as the TV was reporting live from inside the prison. He declined, though, and we only came to know about his injury when he arrived at the university hospital in Aleppo.”

Mother of martyr Ali Nasser Sulaiman reminisces about her only son, who headed to the battlefield driven by his love for his country. She takes a trip down the memory lane back to his childhood, recalling how he was pampered and received considerable attention as the only child would.

“My pleas for him to stay with me went unheeded. He was my only son and I was so fond of him. He left for Daraa soon after events there broke out, and he returned eventually… a martyr!” she says, with tears pooling in her eyes.

Hassan Saleh, who was paralyzed after he was injured during one of the confrontations with armed groups, regrets that he cannot go back to the battlefield.

“I once asked a friend of mine who visited me after I was injured to take me with him to fight. Although I was paralyzed in the lower part of my body but I still can use my hands and carry a weapon… I am not afraid of fighting terrorists,” he said.

Hardly a house in Syria escaped the woes of war, but each cloud of loss and sacrifice has a silver lining of courage, determination and will. It is a lesson the Syrian army soldiers know quite well: that the road to victory is only charted by sacrifice.

The war against Syria is one of the toughest because it is a composite war where traditional war is intertwined with guerilla war and urban warfare, al-Freij explained, adding that it is a military, economic, political, diplomatic, technological and intelligence war, all at once.

Al-Freij, whose comments came in an interview with the Syrian TV on the occasion of the 69th anniversary of the Syrian army foundation, said that the anniversary this year comes as the Syrian army and people are fighting a fierce war against terrorism.

This is an occasion to draw lessons from the values of the Syrian army, which are an incentive for more determination and will in the face of terrorism until security and stability are restored, he added.

The Syrian army is a full-fledged school in patriotism, heroism and sacrifice, al-Freij affirmed, saying that the army, since its inception, has defended the Arab causes and championed the rights of the Arab nation.

“There is no denying the role that the Syrian army has played since independence in defending the Palestinian cause, which lies at the heart of the Arab just causes,” al-Freij said, indicating that a piling up of victories that the Arab resistance is scoring is but an example of what the Syrian army and people have offered for Lebanon and Palestine.

He indicated that an objective glance at the repercussions of the war against the countries of the region is enough to grasp the importance of the role that the army plays and the lessons with which it enriched the military schools, grabbing the interest of strategic studies’ centers.

The reasons and factors behind the Syrian army steadfastness are many, al-Freij said, putting it down primarily to the nature of the Syrian army which “comes from the ranks of the people.”

What he described as a “creative integration” between the people and army and their loyalty to their wise leadership has yielded a “qualitative steadfastness” that was not possible for great armies.

Chief among the factors of success is the “clear insight” of President Bashar al-Assad since day one, and his foreknowledge of what was being planned which, the defense minister added, has allowed the Syrian leadership a margin for maneuver and making the sound decisions.

He also cited the Syrian people’s “awareness, unique patience and perseverance” as important factors in winning the war, as well as the ability of the Syrian army to switch to fighting in an untraditional war against terrorist gangs and urban warfare.

Al-Freij urged everyone who “strayed from the right path” to return to their common sense and take advantage of President al-Assad’s call for the errant citizens to mend their ways.

“Ending up in the traitors’ camp bequeaths nothing but disgrace and humiliation,” he added.

“He who thinks that what remained of the gangs of killing and criminality can do what a three-year-war failed to is self-delusional,” al-Freij said, proclaiming victory in the strategic war that was won thanks to the Syrian army.

Al-Freij concluded by an emotional address to the Syrian army and saluting martyrs, saying “we are within an ace of achieving a decisive victory.”
