Government Forces Are About To Capture Ajami District Of Eastern Ghouta From Militants – Reports

Donate

On February 27, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Republican Guard (RG) achieved a notable progress in their battle against Ahrar al-Sham and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in the Ajami district of Damascus’ Eastern Ghouta, according to pro-government sources.

The SAA and the RG reportedly broke the militants’ defense there and captured almost entire area. According to reports, Ahrar al-Sham and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham remained in control of only few buildings there. However, intense fighting in the area is ongoing and the situation can change soon.

If government forces establish control over the  entire district of Ajami, they will increase security of the SAA’s positions in the Armoured Vehicles Base.

The advance in Ajami will also increase pressure on positions of Ahrar al-Sham and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in the militant-held part of the Harasta, north of the Armoured Vehicles Base.

    Damascus – from Elijah J. Magnier:

    A global war in Syria is taking place between the United States and
    Russia, entitled “The Humanitarian Situation in Ghouta”, east of the
    Syrian capital, Damascus. It is a dirty war in which any hit under the
    belt is permitted and the gloves are off, so that any of the superpowers
    who openly fight will not visibly accept defeat by the other party.

    Yes, there is a humanitarian situation in the eastern Ghouta, as in
    Kfariya and Al-Fo’a, which have been besieged since the years of war, as
    was the case in Aleppo and the city of Al-Raqqah. The war is first and
    foremost taking the lives of civilians who have no refuge and are at the
    mercy of the insurgent forces: they are the victims of this
    international conflict whose battleground is Syria and has been for
    seven long years.

    There are tens of thousands of inhabitants in eastern Ghouta, whose
    population was estimated at 400,000 by the United Nations. It is worth
    noting that all the statistics provided by the international community –
    including the United Nations – on all the Syrian cities that the
    international main stream media launched a “rescue” campaign for, were
    exaggerated. This was the case for Quseyr, Madaya, Aleppo and many other
    cities where the “humanitarian campaign” is driven by the larger
    conflict among the superpowers, their policies and their conflicts of
    interest. Ctd….

      Total noncense. This is not Russia fighting USA with Syria being “incidental” battleground. It is USA invading Syria via its irregular armed forces (daesh, nusra and the rest of this scum) and Russia defending its ally. On the larger scale, yes – it is battle between evil empire and Russia but Russia didn’t choose this battlground – that just the place where Russia decided that enough is enough.

        Putin invited them.

        • andy l

          Russia only started bombing the militants in late 2015, the US were already involved so how could Putin invite them lol

          • velociraptor

            US paid the terrorists, but had no forces on syrian ground.

            i have videos with putins speeches, where he invited western countries. unfortunately disqus allowes to upload only 5 MB files.

            Velo,are you reading Edgar Allan Poe? Besides that, that saying of yours that Putin had woman voice maybe was a bad idea. Since then came the goats, even with 3 legs (well, it’s meat, anyway), the cows and I wonder what will come next.

            USAIPAC bombing campaign was a sham to protect convoys of stolen oil and degrade supply lines of the Syrian people, like bombing grains silos, thus making the defense of their motherland much more difficult for the Syrian forces.

        • Bob

          NATO was preparing to launch direct air war on Syria in 2013, intended to shatter Syrian defenses against NATO and Gulf State proxy militants on the ground – as project Libya 2.0. But UK PM Cameron failed to achieve necessary Parliamentary approval to go to war. That was seriously unexpected and halted immediate NATO plans for direct air assault on the SAA and SyAF services. NATO and Gulf States were forced to focus on facilitating the indirect proxy ground war thereafter. Russia subsequently intervened in 2015. Troll fail.

          US Continues Bombing Raids against Syria Gov’t Forces TEHRAN (FNA)-
          Local sources in Eastern Deir Ezzur reported on Tuesday that the US-led
          coalition warplanes carried out several bombardments against the Syrian
          Army troop’s strongholds.

          The sources said that the fighter jets pounded
          the army positions at the Northern entrance of Deir Ezzur city near
          al-Salehiyeh settlement, adding that the Syrian air-defense units opened
          fire at invading American jets. The officials in Damascus and Washington have yet to comment on the incident.

          Other sources, which preferred to remain anonymous, said that the
          pro-government forces have reportedly captured 22 areas in a bid to take
          back energy resources in the rebel-held regions in Deir Ezzur province,
          but they had to retreat, however, following the US heavy airstrikes.

          A media outlet reported earlier this month that a US Army attack drone
          destroyed a Syrian Army tank in Eastern Deir Ezzur to become the second
          raid in a week by the US air force on the Syrian army.

          The Arabic-language website of Reuters quoted a US official as reporting
          that an MQ-9 drone of the US forces destroyed a Russia-made T-72 tank
          of the Syrian Army in Deir Ezzur. Also, the US army announced that it destroyed a tank that had entered the fire range of the US-backed militants.

          In the meantime, a US official, who requested anonymity, disclosed that
          at least two pro-Syrian government forces were killed in that attack.

          The drone attack on the Syrian tank was the second US attack on Damascus forces in last week. The US-led coalition carried out several airstrikes on Syrian forces in Deir Ezzur province in early February.

          The US military claimed that so-called anti-ISIL coalition forces
          repelled a threatening Syrian Army-led attack consisting of five hundred
          troops – backed by artillery, tanks, multiple-launch rocket
          systems and mortars against positions of Arab and Kurdish militias at
          energy fields near the town of Khasham on the Eastern bank of the
          Euphrates River in Deir Ezzur province.

          According to reports, more than 100 pro-government forces were killed in
          the airstrikes carried out by the US-led coalition in Syria’s Deir
          Ezzur.

            They are trying to protect oil and gas fields seized by USAIPAC-backed Kurds.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            trying and succeeding, is two different things. What I am pointing out is the unwillingness, up to this point to defend the air space they supposed to. You give them,(americans) an inch, they take a mile.

        The Trump brutal regime have hostage the Syrian Arab nation in North and East Syria.
        ————————–
        The US bases in Syria are illegal and are serve for occupation of Syrian land. The Syria and Russia should not request in honour of US. They should just use S-400 air defense missile systems on their fighter planes that violate the Syrian aerospace and use Iskander missiles on their bases that they have opened illegally in Syria for arming and training terrorists.

      • Bob

        Remember in 2013 Cameron and Obama were preparing to directly attack Damascus when Cameron unexpectedly lost the vote to proceed to war in House of Commons. It was a personal humiliation to the Prime Minister and shook the NATO plans for another Libyan style intervention, with direct massive air strikes against all Syrian military services, and Obama sensed the political mood was against it and went full covert instead. The UK ruling Conservatives have gotten wrecked over Syria before – they should pay close attention to their own immediate history.

    Great news and as we know rats desert a sinking ship. In one of those remaining buildings is probably where the SAA may find NATO advisers, who are as I write destroying all evidence that they were there. Usually something gets overlooked or one of these super Rats takes a bullet and cannot get out. Interesting few days ahead. Best of luck to Tiger forces and RGs and that they get through this trial by combat with no or minimum losses. Your valiant bravery will be written in the annals of International history.

      Lmao. I thought the username ”Rob” was the only mentally chellenged poster here but I see you out did him here.

      ”In one of those remaining buildings is probably where the SAA may find NATO advisers, who are as I write destroying all evidence that they were there. Usually something gets overlooked”

      I mean really? Have you come to this conclusion? So you think NATO soldiers were hiding in Ghouta all this time and that we were fooled all along. Interesting narrative to say the least

    Russia should publicly take over air operations in East Ghouta. Syria can be accused of using CW not Russia. No one would really believe that nonsense. Even if the accusations were made what would Trump, Boris and Macron do?…Start WW3?
