On November 9, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) released ore details of the special operation to rescue al-Suwayda hostages, which was conducted a day earlier.

Citing a military source, the SANA stated that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had received accurate intelligence about the location of the hostages and then began to track them carefully. Later, when a group of ISIS fighters attempted to move the hostages in the area of al-Naqsh near the town of Hamimah in the eastern Homs countryside, a special forces unit attacked the group and freed the civilians.

“The operation led to the release of the hostages … eight terrorists were killed, some of them were foreign, another terrorist was captured, three vehicles of the terrorists were also captured and other vehicles were destroyed,” the SANA quoted the military source as saying.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Russia confirmed that Russian troops had participated in the special operation and said that fifteen children and four women had been rescued.

Despite the claim that all hostages were rescued, the Syria-based al-Suwayda 24 revealed that two children “Raafat Nashat Abu Ammar” and “Qusay Judat Abu Ammar” were killed by ISIS fighters when they attempted to escape in the start of clashes.

These civilians were abducted by ISIS fighters from their homes in the eastern al-Suwayda countryside more than two months ago. The terrorist group used them as human shields to protect its positions in the area of al-Safa. Now when the hostages are rescued, the SAA and its allies are, once again, capable of attacking the ISIS-held area with full power.

        I think Russian media should publish more comparisons between “bloody regime” and “moderate rebels”. What is for us common sense, common people don’t know that Assad protected minorities while the “moderate” want to replace it with a 100% sunni state.

        • χρηστος

          indeed, western media is so biased .Assad is a criminal etc and moderate opossision is holy people demanding their freedom…….a joke of bad taste.

      The thought that on Remembrance Sunday , British troops who have been complicit with terrorist crimes in Syria will be marching to the Cenotaph , is a sad way to honour those who fought in WW1.

      The more I read about WW1, the more senseless that war becomes. The heroism of all the combatants who fought and died in the mud and filth of trench warfare in order to preserve the lifestyles of dynastic families would severely test the ‘rank and file’ of today.

      The actions of the British governments in recent years is an insult to us all.

      • You can call me Al

        I will not blame or allow any blame on out troops; most are gormless wonders; now the command and the government are obviously different (and probably all related).

        I agree 100% + with your last sentence / para. We should hang the bastards.

    What a difference between the war on terror of the ferocious Assad that sends back attacks on cannibal warhead-cutter, clippers by the Americans and the US who have razed RaKKa by making thousands of dead, letting it escape bloodthirsty dogs unharmed ready to kill the Syrians.
