I do not see the military logic in fighting your enemy and then when they have run out of ammunition just allowing them free passage out of the battlefield. All I see is that these arrangements leave these people free to re-arm and fight another day. In these circumstances capture and status as prisoners of war would seem a wiser course of action.

Why leave your enemy able to come back and kill you?

Divesh Kumar

because they leave on this condition only. otherwise SAA will have to do combat in these heavy populated areas leading to great loss of man and material on both sides. More over to the west especially media there is no issue with the loss of SAA life but they will leave no chance to drum up even slightest scratch on their so called head chopper “moderate terrorists”

Tom Johnson

moderate terrorists you mean residents.

Boris Kazlov

NIgga -fucked Johnson again parrotting his jewish boss pay him for, ‘Assad killing his own people’ , we have seen this BS before for Saddam, Jhadafi, etc. and those are the resulta, terrorism and chaos, so muricans can better plunder those countries.


Agree with Divesh. In addition Assad’s amnesty is in force, and rebel fighters are allowed to disarm and join normal society if they wish, even join SAA. Would be interesting to know how many chose this in Daraya. The rest are beaten and they know it, and everyone knows it. They will have to give up their heavy weapons and return to their terrorist brethren beaten and demoralised, possibly in disgrace. Assad knows that for these fighters to carry on living defeated is probably harder than dying in the rubble.


Southfront reported 200 militants surrendering.



Thanks mate!

forever young

dont forget they take full details of these people who are given this one chance, if they get caught he second time they are instantly killed

plus as you can imagine what this done to the morale of their “comrades” it must completely demoralise them and destroy their will making it easier to defeat them

and in the end the SAA are the moral army in this and let that morale shine , truth will always win, the Assad government is not like these people , they are fighting for truth and those who fight for truth are merciful and forgiving

Andrew Illingworth

You summed that up well.

Tom Johnson

“Safe Passage” is a military discipline that has been practiced for thousands of years and is segatious in a region where revenge is habitual.

Boris Kazlov

CIA trolls will always blame Assad no matter what, those are their marching orders, if amnesty and safe passage, its is ‘segatious’, if killed they are moderate rebel fighters or civilians massacred by the evil dictator.

Boris Kazlov

go back to your pushups, nigga is waiting.

Andrew Illingworth

Let me ask you a question (and I bet you won’t answer this).

If Assad was such a tyrant, how come after 5.5 years of this so-called “civil” war he is still the popular leader of that country? How long did Guadaffi and Mobarak last? Weeks? Why after 5 years do Syrian people still take up arms in defense of Ba’athist Syria? Because if he was as evil as you say he is, he’d have been kicked out long ago and there is nothing Russian airpower could do to stop that.

I live in Australia and at my university I talk to many Syrian Muslims (Sunnis, Shia and Allawhite) – up to one dozen so far. As far as I remember, none of them blame Assad for anything, so when I ask them why they moved to Australia, they all seem to re-call it was the “moderate” opposition that killed their family and relatives and forced them out of their homes.

Anyway, you are probably a paid troll (Kurdish, Zionist, Wahabbi or something).

Lasse Riise

Why do You think there is a war in Syria in the first place? Australia is as far away from the Middle-East You can get. Obviously, also mentaly, Worshippers of Tyrants are a disgusting disgrace offending all decent people. Just like the Nazi followers of Hitler was. By the way, Assad will be assasinated. The Assad gangsters have made millions of enemies. Even the Russians will grow tired of the Vampire mafia in Damascus. It’s just a question of time. It may take decades. But in the end, somebody’s gonna get him.

Andrew Illingworth

“Why do You think there is a war in Syria in the first place?”

Several reasons why the powers that be started this illegal war against the Syrian people (although I may be wasting my time explaining this to a troll, if indeed you are one).

1) The Zionist-US alliance has decided that a fragmented Middle East with dozens of infighting criminal groups best suits their economic and geopolitical interests in the region – the arms industries of the United States have much money to make and the imperial ambitions of Israel can be realised with the destruction of the last secular Middle Eastern country.

2) The colonisation of Syria by the US-Zionist Empire will also open the door for an invasion of Iran, which is one of the empire’s ultimate goals.

3) As long as stupid-arse Wahabbis continue to fight one another, the illegal state of Israel continues to live in peace.

Talking of vampires … how are things in Israel and Saudi Arabia nowadays? Last time I checked, people there were still child murders.

Lasse Riise

The significanse of tiny Syria as a partner is vastly overestimated. You forget that for any enemy to get to Iran, they have to go through Iraq. The Shia’s dominates Iraq. Baghdad is a much more reliable partner for Teheran, than a desperate “secular” dictator in Damascus, that are willing to beg for help from anybody that serves the purpose of keeping him in power. Assads willingness to kneel down and kiss the ass of Erdogan proves that Assad have no principles and are willing to sell out the Syrian people. And by the way, Bashar would most likely let Israel dominate the rest of the Middle East, as long as he can keep Syria as his personal property.

Langaniso Mhlobo

Exactly very correct.

Norman F

Good to see that the AT 4 from Sweden on the first picture could come to some use. -Sweden is a humanitarian superpower as you all know. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AT4

Langaniso Mhlobo

Very shocking as a military man I have never see this type of arrangement on a battlefield , were the enemy surrenders because their have run out of ammunition.So far most of the militants which we’re relocated to Idlib are use and mobilize by Turkey to fight SAA.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
