Regime appears to surrender strategic Barzeh in significant truce deal

Balatarin

Barzeh is located along the main Damascus/Homs highway near Qaboun and Jobar tand potenially blocks several important roads. That must be having serious effect or the regime would never agree to these terms:

 

1- FSA will stay in the places it taken and never withdraw.

2- SAA will withdraw from the places under his occupation and empty the military centers surrounded Barzeh .

3. Regime must release detainees .

4-The introduction of flour and fuel into the neighborhood and re all kinds of communications.

5. In return  the FSA agrees to open the roads he once closed (Tishrin hospital road and the road linking Damascus and Tal). 

 

As I read those terms this does not open the road to Homs which remains blocked near Adra and Qalamoun. The source for the above item and the two that follow is the FSA via this link:

 REBELS WON A SERIES OF MINI-VICTORIES IN ZABADANI

 

Consider that the regime has been targeted Zabadani with bombing as fierce as Aleppo, this shows the problem with the regime’s dependence on air power.  The  FSA hit a tank belonged to Aqaba barrier and destroyed the tower completely ,FSA also targeted Assad officers chamber in Madeeq barrier and achieved direct hit .  The FSA attacked Villa barrier and Tal castle with heavy machine guns and snipers

 

REGIME PULLS A DOUBLE CROSS IN YALDA

 

Assad forces reneged their promise as usual ,after giving civilians safety to get out from Yalda crossing , Assad forces opened fire and and arrested large number of men ,witness said that Assad forces insulted women and beaten them .

 

Awaiting Confirmation: ISIS RECRUITED SHABBIHA MILITIA TO HUNT DOWN TARGETS CHOSEN BY SYRIAN INTELLIGENCE

 

Targets included the FSA, Journalists, democracy activists.  The ISIL has also undermined the people and groups who began the revolution, and which the regime’s intelligence services could not counter initially.

MASS GRAVE FULL OF HEADLESS BODIES FOUND NEAR KANTRANBEL

Many bodies, beheaded, were found in a mass grave near a former ISIS HQ. Kanfranbel has been a stronghold of the pro-democracy movement whose members are hated by regime terrorists as well as Al Queda terrorists.

STATISTICS FOR ANYONE WHO IMAGINES ISIS WASN’T A REGIME ALLY

Prior to the current fighting, ISUS Killed over 400 rebel fighters, imprisoned 2000 and killed ten leaders.—Syrian Revolutionary Front.

The total does not take into account targeting info supplied to the Alawite Air Force by ISIS or arrested and murdered pro-democracy activists who get identical treatment from the democracy-hating Alawite Regime.

400 SYRIAN SUNNIS REPORTED MURDERED BY INVADING SHIA MILITIA: Many burned alive and raped.

There are unconfirmed reports that mercenaries from the Abu Fadl al Abbas Brigade, one of around 15 Iraqi Shiite militias working for Bashar al Assad’s regime, carried out a massacre of over 400 unarmed civilians in Hajira yesterday (Sunday January 5th, 2014).

The mercenaries from the Tehran-backed Iraqi militia, which has been involved in some of the most heinous regime massacres since the start of the revolution in 2011, reportedly abducted 1,200 starving civilians at the checkpoint outside the town in Damascus province, who had gone to the checkpoint after the regime falsely announced a 24-hour truce for the besieged areas in Damascus city and province, which they claimed would allow civilians to safely leave the regime-besieged areas and to receive food and medical aid.

The Abu Fadl al Abbas militia mercenaries are accused of killing around 400 of the civilian detainees at the scene, with a large number reportedly being burnt alive, and of raping more than 50 girls and young women. Around 200 elderly people from the 1,200 detained civilians were reportedly subsequently released. There is no information on the whereabouts of the other 600 abducted residents.

The reports have emerged as it was revealed that regime troops and Iraqi mercenaries carried out another massacre of civilians in Yalda, also in Damascus province, yesterday. The massacre in Yalda was also carried out when residents who heard reports of the 24-hour truce announcd by the regime went to the regime checkpoints outside the town seeking food, medicine and safe passage from the regime-besieged town.
The announcement of the truce appears to have been another ruse by the regime to deceive the desperate and starved people in the besieged areas to surrender in order to arrest and/or kill as many male civilians as possible.--From: Revolution News

CHARLES LISTER OF JANE’S ON ISUS TROOP MOVEMENTS

Lister says ISUS is shifting troops from Deir Ezzor to Raqaa and Aleppo or order to hold on to positions in both. Success appears improbable in my estimation.

This is the ISIS convoy that was sent to Aleppo. They better have plenty of supplies there because I doubt these vehicles can carry much. The dizzying pace of rebel gains has made it difficult for ISIS to organize a counterattack.

TWO CONVOYS OF “BAD GUY” REINFORCEMENTS ARRIVE AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS

#1: The ISIS convoy from Deir Ezzor has arrived in eastern Aleppo in the Al Mashalab area around the location below.

http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.944034&lon=39.050217&z=14&m=b

I’m make two easy predictions. First, the convoy won’t save ISIS in Raqaa. Secondly, the move will make things easier for its enemies in Deir Ezzor. Tazimorocco gets it when he writes: “ISIS sending reinforcements to Raqqa reminds me Regime sending troops to their besieged bases in Idlib to survive as long as possible #Syria”


#2: As evening arrived in Khanassir, so did a regime convoy (i.s. ISIS allies) that included tanks, rocket launchers, APCs, etc. apparently looking for opportunities from the rebel vs. ISUS fighting in Aleppo.

I’m not sure whether ISIS can hang on that long in Aleppo. But either way the same predictions as above apply but with the locations changed. Since there is no way that the regime can retake Aleppo ever the move doesn’t make much sense to me. As in the past, any forces sent there will face a quafmire followed by slow defeat. They must be kept resupplied (always dangerous) and cannot help the regime against growing threats in central Syria, northern Damascus or Palymyra

So why not withdraw those forces? Because of the message that would sent do those left behind: “You’ve been abandoned.”

Why not evacuate all pro-regime populace and forces in Aleppo? That’s a military impossibility. Some are too widely scattered (the Military Academy) or too distant (pro-regime suburbs nw of Aleppo). Even if it were possible, an immense quantity of freed up rebel forces would likely take Idlib and move on to seize the coast. The regime needs to keep these guys tied up to whatever degree possible.

A Great Reason for a Coastal Offensive (aside from bringing the war home to Alawites):

ONCE A WEEK A RUSSIAN SHIP UNLOADS GENOCIDE-SUPPORTING WEAPONS AT COASTAL PORTS

Putin’s goal is to assist the Alawite regime in another genocidal campagign against Sunnis. That’s a good reason to launch an offensive against the coast, seizing all ports and Jablus airport as well.

Some Iranian supplies reportedly land at airports near Palmya and from which they are moved to the coast. One good thing is that its hard to move liquid fuel by air due to the weight. Eventually these supply cutoffs are going to kill the regime.

ISIS FACES FROM THE SAME DEFECTION PROBLEM THAT HAS PLAGUED THE ASSAD REGIME (Its covert ally)

ISIS methods and targets are identical to those of its allies and so are many of its military problems in consequence. Both engender irreversible and massive hostility among the Syrian people in general which creates severe manpower problems aggravated further by irreplaceable combat losses and side-switching defections to the enemy. Hence Reuters reports:

“Activists opposed to Assad said dozens of Syrian members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant had changed sides to join other Sunni Islamist factions which have taken advantage of a local backlash against the ISIL and the foreign al Qaeda jihadists prominent among its commanders.”

Must See Video Leaked from Syrian Army Archives:

MURDER OF UNARMED 2011 DEMOCRACY DEMONSTRATORS SHOWS HOW REGIME DROVE THE SYRIAN PEOPLE INTO “IRREVERSIBLE” REBELLION

This film is from Syrian army archives and shows the SAA literally stomping unarmed pro-democracy demonstrators to death. http://linkis.com/wp.me/fPPiw

No wonder so many Sunni soldiers in the army defected! No wonder so many others can’t be trusted and have to be held in barracks at gunpoint! No wonder the rebellion spread so fast! No wonder the regime can’t find recurits to replace the dead. Hopefully most of the soldiers in these pictures have suffered what they’ve deserved or will do so soon.

RUSSIAN “GENOCIDE LANGUAGE” IS NOW GOING TO BE REQUIRED IN SYRIA’S SCHOOLS

/d calls it the “most stupid piece of news I’ve heard today.” Don’t worry Russification won’t last long and Russia will get the boot from any post-Assad regime. No Russian presence will ever be allowed again. Ditto for Iran so long as the mullocracy remains in power.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO READ SOMETHING FUNNY?

Check out the terms of the truce the regime agreed to at Barzeh in the lead paragraph above. When pointed them out to reader at Enduring America I knew some regime apologist would pop up and figure out a creative way to spin defeat into victory.

Sure enough, "Innus Rorret" comes along with this hilarious interpretation:

"the rebels surrendered to the government and now they have a power sharing system in barzeh, with the rebels stopping armed attacks on the government, and traffic passing by."

To translate what he appears to be say it goes like this:

"Rebels were losing badly and surrendered. For the first time ever--especially in situations when it enjoyed an alleged upper hand, the Government decided to show unrequired mercy. Though the rebels were losing badly to this Goliath of a regime,, the government agreed to give away everything because it badly needed the rebels to protect them."

Does that make sense? It's like trying to spin Little Big Horn into a victory for the US cavalry.
