Russia Issues Final Warning To Jaysh al-Islam - Media

Russia gave Jaysh al-Islam a 5-days’ notice to accept a full evacuation agreement that will force its leadership and all of its fighters to withdraw to the Turkish-held areas in northern Syria, the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV reported on April 4.

During the last week, more than 2,000 civilians and pro-opposition fighters were evacuated from the Jaysh al-Islam-held Duma district in the northern part of the Eastern Ghouta region. However, al-Mayadeen said that none of them had been active members oof Jaysh al-Islam.

The religious leader of Jaysh al-Islam Abu Abd al-Rahman Ka’ka has stressed on many occasions over the last few days that the group is not willing to withdraw from Duma.

On April 3 Ka’ka said, during a speech in one of Duma’s mosques, that he and the military leader of Jaysh al-Islam, Essam al-Buwaydhani, had agreed that Jaysh al-Islam should not accept any evacuation agreement.

Al-Mayadeen said that the fate of dozens and possible hundreds of civilian captives in the Jaysh al-Islam prisons is hindering the efforts to reach an evacuation agreement. According to the Lebanese TV channel, Russia and the Damascus government want Jaysh al-Islam to release the captives before any agreement, while the group insists that it would only release them in exchange for militants who have been previously captured by government forces.

This issues appears to be on the way to be solved as Jaysh al-Islam released five civilian captives, including four women on April 4, according to a report by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA). However, the fate of dozens others is to be known yet.

Syrian pro-government activists believe that a millitary option against Jaysh al-Islam is still on the table because the group appears to be determined to stay in the Duma district as long as it can.

    Does America ever give the option to stop fighting and live?

    • Onno Frowein

      Of course not that’s where the money is!

    • FlorianGeyer

      Only when Americans are NOT dying for ‘american democratic Values ‘ :)

      • Pave Way IV

        Or dumpsters of gold bars. Sometimes we have to die to steal someone’s gold. But that’s an exception. We won’t die for anything else. And poppies, too. That’s pretty important to our democratic values. So, democratic values, gold and opium poppies. Um… and sometimes land… for bases and stuff… to stop Russia and Iran. We’ll die or kill for that stuff – doesn’t matter either way.

        So we only die/kill for american democratic values, gold, heroin and to occupy foreign soil with our bases. That’s it. We won’t die/kill for anything else. Not one single additional thing. Period. Unless you count pipelines, because we will die or kill for those, too. And Israel, I guess. Some general said so. And Saudi Arabia. So besides those rare exceptions, Americans are pretty peaceful people.

  • US-Navy Revert Shia

    There was so many Jew [Mossad] weapons found in Eastern Ghouta, the ISISraHELL Backed Terrorist Should have marched right into ISISraHELL & Chopped off all of the Evil Knesset Heads off who sold them out for the hell fire https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/05b72c43e54fad9b4d43445dc60544b8d3c3c2d9bbaed613a8bd6e59e3de370c.jpg

    Stop begging them, give a 24 hour notice, after that, no surrenders will be accepted, no one comes out alive, those who attempt to surrender should be executed.

    • jerry hamilton

      This is something I respect in the Russians.
      They may not like it but they still have respect for human life.
      Something that I hope other countries learn from.

      • Eskandar Black

        Yeah, we can talk about respect for human life when savages stop taking civilians hostage, hoarding medical supplies food, raping women, executing children, using snipers to handicap wounded evacuees. You know who has a lot of respect for human life? The British, with the chlorine they provide to the White helmets that were used to gas civilians, and the HD footage the White helmets produced for youtube, while their friends used gas they made in underground laboratories to poison children so they can create pretexts to kill more Syrians in the west.

        • jerry hamilton

          When evil soldiers are killed, innocent civilians are often killed with them.
          You don’t get it both ways.
          Would you rather condemn those civilians to death too?
          I don’t think you would.

          • Eskandar Black

            When pockets think they can negotiate and waste time civilians die, other rebels see a lack of resolve as the basis for stalling negotiations resulting in the death of civilians. In fact, sometimes lack ability but also a lack of resolve has caused hundreds of thousands to die in Syria, while criminals negotiate from beneath the skirts of women and children. It must be put to an end, most civilians are gone from Ghouta. If Jaish Islam wants to make a stand, let them. But don’t waste an opportunity, make it memorable, so the other savages know better to try something so foolish ever again.

          • Attrition47

            This is a war of attrition that the Syrians and their allies are winning. Sometimes, more haste means less speed.

          • Eskandar Black

            Its not about haste, its about precedent so other savages know to negotiate.

          • Attrition47

            I suggest that their crimes against humanity are bad enough; we shouldn’t copy them because if we do we become them.

          • Eskandar Black

            It is not a crime against humanity to kill terrorists who refuse to surrender.

          • Attrition47

            That’s the sort of flimsy pretext that the Washington barbarians use to excuse their crimes against humanity. You should be more careful of your bedfellows.

          • Eskandar Black

            you are the one schilling for Saudi terrorists, worry about your own problems

          • Attrition47

            Don’t be silly, I wouldn’t touch the Saud perverts with rubber gloves on.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          becoming like them, has no honor in it.

        • Attrition47

          That’s a description of a boss class so better watch your back babe unless you live in an anarchist society.

      • Tudor Miron

        Don’t know if you speak/understand Russian (May be Florian does?) but if you do this couple of songs would explain how we feel about it. We avoid war as long as we can. Historically (and that’s thousands of years) Russians know what war really means.

        Comment about above 3d song if you can read Russian.
        Песня о реальном бое. В ночь на 14 сентября группе из 18 бойцов 8-й роты 718 полка 139-й стрелковой ‎дивизии была поставлена задача овладеть высотой 224,1 у деревни Рубеженка, ‎обеспечивающей удобный выход к реке Десна. Группу составляли в основном новосибирцы ‎‎(17 человек были из г. Новосибирска, а 10 работали на заводе «Сибметаллстрой», ныне ‎‎«Сибсельмаш»). Под командованием младшего лейтенанта Евгения Порошина бойцы смогли ‎выполнить задачу и овладеть высотой, но были отсечены от основных сил 139-й стрелковой ‎дивизии превосходящими силами противника. В течение всей ночи 18 солдат удерживали ‎высоту, отбивая атаки превосходящих сил немцев – до 500 солдат, усиленных танками, ‎артподготовкой и авиацией.‎ К утру в живых осталось двое – Герасим Лапин (дончанин) и Константин Власов (сибиряк). ‎Власова взяли в плен, он бежал из плена, воевал в партизанском отряде. Лапин был ‎обнаружен подошедшим к утру подкреплением – боец лежал среди мертвых товарищей и ‎был без сознания.‎.

          To put you in the picture. I don’t understand Russian.
          My son has just turned down a job he wanted in Russia, teaching English.
          The reason being, it was to teach English to 4 year old’s.
          He can’t do children.
          I am a sound and lighting engineer and people like what I do. Music is how I live.
          I have listened to the first song so far.
          The music was beautiful. To me it missed a female soprano.
          That would have added so much drama.
          If you know of the song done that way, I would love to hear it.
          I will get back to you on the other songs, probably tomorrow.
          Thank you for your kind consideration.

          • Tudor Miron

            Thanks for your reply. Sadly, I’m not in a position to discuss music qualities – unlike you I’m a total dumb in this area. I would feel more comfortable if we talk race cars aero and chassis dynamics. My perception of music is simplistic = emotional. It was lirics I was referring to indicate how Russians feel about war. War = grief, there’s no way around it.

            That singer – he died last year (canser)

            Those were old (~ 60 years ) songs written by ww2 generation. I do believe that music (older folk music in particular) could be successfully used to learn about a nation mentality (soul?).

            On that German group singing. What do you mean by “What the difference is”?

          • jerry hamilton

            I do really like Traditional Russian music, even if sung by the army choir.
            I just dont like to see uniforms.
            Polyushka Polye is probably my favourite and the version you put up is possibly the most beautiful I have heard.
            Russian folk is something I can listen to all day long.

            “What the difference is”…
            I could be wrong but I think the words are far more significant to Russians than they are in the West. We often use silly words as you will know from the Beatles.

          • Tudor Miron

            Honestly, it is difficult for me to understand English in songs (and German accent doesn’t help :))
            But I agree that words are very significant.

          • jerry hamilton

            Actually that German’s English was perfect.
            Here is a song that no one understands. The words were made up.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xUnSVTh8fI

        • jerry hamilton

          I listened to the second song.
          Again beautiful and a bit same-ish.
          It doesn’t help that Tenor is not my thing.
          As a Brit, it doesn’t help that it is an army band.
          I once did sound for an RAF band and I was not impressed with that either.
          Musically, they were perfect. It is the uniform that doesn’t work.
          Tit for tat. Watch 6 minutes of this. Not British, German.
          Brits have never heard this or any other European music.
          Tell me what the difference is.

        • jerry hamilton

          3rd song without subtitles. Again it’s the Tenor thing.
          He is good as is his use of light and shade.
          Does need a female soprano.
