Syrian Army Breaks Ahrar al-Sham's Siege On Armored Vehicles Base (Map)

On January 7, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) broke the Ahrar al-Sham Movement’s siege on the Armored Vehicles Base east of Damascus city after capturing the Grain mills area northwest of the base, according to the Syrian State TV.

Syrian pro-government sources said the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) supported the SAA final push towards the Armored Vehicles Base and destroyed several key positions of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement around the base and in the southern part of Harasta district.

Earlier, the SAA expanded its operations north of the Armored Vehicles Base and attacked several positions of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement in the northern part of Harasta district, which likely increased the pressure on the Islamist group.

The SAA is now evacuating the injured soldiers from the Armored Vehicles Base and resupplying its forces there, according to pro-government activists. In the upcoming hours, the SAA will begin securing the base from all sides and recapturing all the positions it lost in the southern section of the base.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            rainbow in nature does not symbolze anything. guy wearing rainbow medal, yes.

          • Gregory Louis

            So the symbol of the rainbow doesn’t change its meaning unless their is meaning put onto it yes…just like how a tank or any weapon has no meaning unless a human puts their own ideology around it

        I guess Trump is just trying to make the other side happy ?

        • RichardD

          Your Jew crime state should have never been admitted to the UN in the first place. As the world is increasingly coming to realize. And Trump throwing the Palestinians and their neighbors under the bus doesn’t change that. It just makes the Jewmerica/Israel Jew crime nexus more obvious and undeniable. And the futility of negotiating with the Jews and their Jewmerican “intermediary” as being the waste of time and can kicking exercise that it is:

          “The commission found that “Zionists looked forward to a practically complete dispossession of the present non-Jewish inhabitants of Palestine, by various forms of purchase”.[16] Nearly 90% of the Palestinian population was emphatically against the entire Zionist program. …

          The Commission Report was skeptical of the viability of a Jewish state in “Syria”. The logic of the Commission went along the lines that the first principle to be respected must be self-determination. It pointed out that a majority of “Syrians” were against the formation of a Jewish state. It concluded that the only way to establish a viable Jewish state would be with armed force to enforce it. This was precisely what the Commission wanted to avoid, so they dismissed the idea, saying that Zionists anticipated “a practically complete dispossession of the present non-Jewish inhabitants to Palestine, by various forms of purchase”. That said, there would be nothing wrong with Jews coming to “Israel” and simply living as Jewish Syrian citizens, but noted “nor can the erection of such a Jewish State be accomplished without the gravest trespass upon the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine”. The latter statement was based on the assumption that an army of at least 50,000 would be required to establish Jewish ownership by force. In respect to the creation of a Jewish state in the Middle East, the report cautioned “Not only you as president but the American people as a whole should realize that if the American government decided to support the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine, they are committing the American people to the use of force in that area, since only by force can a Jewish state in Palestine be established or maintained.””

          – King–Crane Commission – (1919)

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King%E2%80%93Crane_Commission

          The commission’s findings have been fully vindicated as history has subsequently proven. And is proven every day by the scofflaw Jew criminals and their collaborators. The recent UN Jerusalem vote shows that the UNGA 377 A procedure and votes are their to nullify the US UNSC veto and admit Palestine as a full member nation to the UN over Israeli and US objections.

            It’s called truth, which is something that Jew pedophile rape cultists and their supporters like you hate. Because it exposes all of the Jew’s crime and evil for what it is. This is you PZIVJ, the lying two faced Jew good buddy of the Arabs planning to victimize them just like the commission report from 100 years ago said was going to happen. You’re on these boards every day claiming to be against the war that your Jew buddies fabricated and are waging against Syria and the region:

    Israel is a foreign terrorist organization in Palestine using the Jewish religion. Israel have no religion. If You wanna see real Jew then watch this video.

    At the moment all Muslim states face serious challenges from Trump and his terrorist organizations. Trump will fully support any terrorist organization that stand against any Muslim state in the Middle East to kill nation, damage state defenses and economy. Therefore, Trump targets Muslim states through Erdogan(AKP), MBS(Sauds), Netanyahu(Israel), ISIS, HTS(Al-Qaeda), FSA and SDF organizations and these are true Terrorist organizations. Palestine, Yemen, Syria and Iraq etc are in serious trouble now. Only the unity of all Muslim states can save them from Trump and his terror groups.

      • Rob

        Israel is a US terror network, erected on a very weak foundation. In this world everything has its own life and bloom.

        This is true that US have killed millions of innocent civilians around the glob through this network but now their end have reached. Netanyahu and his majority cabinet have done the most corruption in Israel. They have destroyed the Israeli economy. Each year our US and UK governments donate total US$9 million but we don’t know where that money goes because each year more people become deprived in Israel.

    To recover land and only resume the same position as previous would be a terrible thing to do. A status quo situation where you are surrounded on three side is just not acceptable. They need to recover those neighborhoods and eliminate the shooting gallery situation that was there before.

    There is one military tactic, air mobility, that I see as almost totally lacking within Syrian war efforts.
    Not to disparage the help that Russia has given to Syrian military, but I oft wonder if , not unlike US, are not using Syria as an R&D training ground, for both equipment development and urban warfare.
    NOTE times it has taken for Both US supported Kurds and Russian supported troop to capture a large municipality.
    Russia has all the air mobile equipment in country to hit any smaller enclaves from rear whenever they want.
    Hit and run of up to brigade sizeair mobile units which could be mounted by Russian transports, when you look at numbers of enemy kills are miniscule, and allowing mobility from secure enemy enclaves, is baffling.
    This is not WWII type warfare where mass army’s face off or try to fortify with masses mountain ranges and well fortified and defended by trained soldiery, he’ll 100 baddies attacking 200 goodguys would not of made more than a WWII skirmish.
    A retreating enemy in wide open terrain, when air mobile strike units could easily cut off retreat routes and puncher destroyed them, why not?
    Russian helo s are useed wing aircraft ,flying at 1500 feet higher than and much like WWII close order fixed wing craft.
    Oft wonder if Syria is no more than a live fire course used to train troop and test equipment by both US NATO and Russia for future warfare between them, say in Ukraine or old Soviet Republics.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      They were making up to 30 strikes in some areas and used Helicopter gunships to break open the siege, so WTF are you talking about the US with their handful of strikes from the air. The SAA and Russians did great with their air and artillery coverage, but when the distances get too close for arty within 50 m gets pretty dodgy.

      The advance in Idlib was moving too fast and required large amounts of man power to control and secure the advances rear, it was a fast drain on the troops in the region. The Uighur foreigners might be on their way to help in the region there but so far all those who came to help have retreated so far.

    I just had my account blocked at VT for exposing Jew crime and evil for what it is. This is a quote from the editor there saying that 30% of the VT staff and contributors are Jews:

    “Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor January 7, 2018 at 12:39 pm
    Richard, I beg to differ, and we are well versed in this subject. I would be willing to bet you that Israeli has a higher percentage of Jews than than the US, although I would not use the work “infested”, one that a Zionist extremist pretending to be a Jew hater would use in a comment posting to tag a website as an anti-semetic one. The roughly 30% of our staff and sources who are Jews would beg to differ with your tired “broad brush” remarks, the kind we rarely see here.”

      Jews in Israel are not more than 10%. In Israel 90% are Palestinians. I have posted details on this a couple of times in south front.

      • RichardD

        I don’t agree, how to you come to that conclusion?

        • Rob

          Since 1944 start look map and compare with figures. In Israel the majority of people are Palestinians with different ethnicity excluding European Jew settlers that entered secretly into Palestine.

          • RichardD

            “According to Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, in 2008, of Israel’s 7.3 million people, 75.6 percent were Jews of any background. Among them, 70.3 percent were Sabras (born in Israel), mostly second- or third-generation Israelis, and the rest are olim (Jewish immigrants to Israel)—20.5 percent”

            A country needs a strong foundation but Israel have no foundation. Israel is based on GBP3 declaration. Recently Trump has decided to get Jerusalem from Palestinians and gift it to Israel on which world wide strong protest started. So on Friday his establishment will now do medical checkup of Trump that he is capable of keeping POTUS post or not.

          • RichardD

            “Jews in Israel are not more than 10%. In Israel 90% are Palestinians.”

            It looks like English may not be your native tongue. But nothing that you’ve provided remotely explains or proves your statement that Jews are only 10% of the Israeli population. You statement is blatantly false. And it makes you look foolish posting something as incorrect as this. And then trying to justify or prove it with nonsensical posts.

    • Garga

      Richard, seems they told you more or less the same thing that I told you. Not all Jews are for Israel and Zionism.
      Attacking all the Jews just helps Zionists by raising fingers and playing victim. That’s what they do whenever they feel they’re in corner, like vandalizing their own Synagogues and blame it on Jew-haters.

      Now are you going to tell me all about Jewish circumcision?

      • RichardD

        English evidently isn’t your first language, because like high German, there are elements that don’t translate well into other languages that many non native speakers miss. And it looks like that may be the case with you, and several others here.

        Not all voodoo cultists, Satanic cultists and Jew cultists are pure evil. But they all belong to demonstrably evil cults. If you can’t see that an evil cult that mass pedophile rapes 1,000 cult babies every week, and the cultists who belong to this evil cult are a problem. Then I don’t know what to tell you to help you understand.

        If seeing a star of David, upside down cross or black magic voodoo talisman doesn’t give you a heads up that there may be a problem. Then you have a different perspective on the issue than I do.

        • Garga

          No, you’re right. English is not my mother tongue but I can recognize upside-down cross or other famous satanic symbols, I also am able to recognize if there’s more than ONE exception to a rule, it doesn’t count as a rule anymore. So, %6 [of American Jews] and maybe more in other parts of the world tells ma that not all Jews are bad.

          • RichardD

            It’s more than Zionism, though that’s part of it. The 6%, if it’s that high, are Talmud rabbinical baby rapers also.

      • RichardD

        There’s a contextual difference in English between Jews plural and Jews inclusive. I’ve pointed this out on these boards before. Discerning the author’s intent requires taking the context into consideration. I don’t hate individual Jews simply because they’re Jews and were born into an evil cult through no choice of their own, though I may view them with suspicion. People have to be judged by their actions as well as their circumstances.

        However, 6% of Jews who aren’t avowed Zionists isn’t much more than a rounding error to 100%. And given that they’re taught to lie from birth by their evil cult, even the 6% are suspect.

    Reading a twitteraccount like #harasta, one gets a weird feeling.

    On the one hand jubilant reports about the siege being broken (without veryfieable pics) and counterclaims that it has not at all, also without veryfiable pics.

    Weird, even for this conflict.

    Whatever the real truth, it is likely somewhere in the middle.

    As the map does not report rebels breaking into the vehicle base, this part is veryfiable incorrect. There are both youtube movies and pics of rebels breaking into the base with tanks, of rebels standing in the , apparantly, empty base and taking prisoners away.

    Friendly fire by Russians on the base in another indication all is not well within the base.

    Until further veryfiable info, my reading is that the base was indeed reached by a very small corridor and some got in and or out. At the same time, rebels have taken part of the base and are still, to some extent, in the base.

    So the battle for the base is still going on around a mostly besieged and partly taken base.
