Syrian Army, Tiger Forces Shell Dozens Positions Of Militants In Eastern Ghouta

File Image

On February 18, artillery units and rocket launchers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces shelled dozens of positions of Jaysh al-Islam, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the Ahrar al-Sham Movement and Faylaq al-Rahman in the districts and towns of Nashabiyah, Tel Ferzat, Mesraba, Hawsh Ashari, Autaya, Eyen Tarma, Irbin, Harasta and Jobar in the Eastern Ghouta region, according to Syrian pro-government sources.

Warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) conducted a series of airstrikes on several ammo depots, headquarters and fortifications of the opposition forces in the southern part of Eastern Ghouta.

These strikes are likely the first phase of the long-awaited military operation to clear the Eastern Ghouta pocket from militants. On February 17, several units of the Tiger Forces and other pro-government forces were deployed around Eastern Ghouta.

The SAA and the Tiger Forces will likely launch their ground attack on the southern part of the Eastern Ghouta region in upcoming days, according to Syrian pro-government activists.

    This is a good thing, and with all of their experience they can regain this area with minimum civilian casualties and property damage. There will be unavoidable property damage in some areas. But that can be repaired or replaced on an as needed basis once these areas are cleared.

    This is a night vision camcorder that I bought for ET/ED contact work. If the above video had been filmed with something like this, it would show a lot more of what was happening. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ca452336084a2969a1f148e777673501c8a86c3ab2ecc1770d9170026ca9abd7.png

      This is a 225 meter beam dual white light, infrared illuminator that I’m planning to buy for the camcorder. This will allow either day or night vision use at night depending on the circumstances and threat assessment. If there’s a risk of hostiles, I can use infrared night vision, though they may be able to see it when we can’t.

        I also bought a 500 lumen tactical light, red laser sight for the .223 and a 80 lumen, green laser sight for the 9mm. And green tip armor piercing and tracer rounds for the .223. So once I get everything installed and sighted in, I’ll have some respectable light weight kinetic energy weapon capability if I need it. Which will also make short work of predatory carnivores if that becomes an issue. There are no brown bear in the area, so the calibers should be sufficient for black bear, cat and wolves.

            Make sure the batteries you use are not the cheap Chinese fakes.

          • RichardD

            Night vision could be a big help in a mortal danger situation. Which is why I de escalated and disengaged last summer. There’s always a risk of electronic problems. So I equip for that as a fall back option.

            Meanwhile the Chinese BYD company is among batteries World leader…

          • jerry hamilton

            The trouble with China is it is capable of making good stuff but for every genuine manufacturer, there are 100 fraudulent ones.
            Ultrafire batteries are the most common batteries on ebay. Many are 8800ma.
            The problem is, no-one on planet Earth makes 8800ma batteries.

          • RichardD

            The Chinese make a lot of good stuff, but I stick with American batteries when possible.

          • AlexanderAmproz

            China main Problem is the Western or Chinese buyers
            placing Orders by the factories !
            Buyers want it as cheap as possible to maximized
            irresponsible profits.
            Since 1986 I placed many container orders in China,
            always been fully satisfied with quality and delay !

          • jerry hamilton

            I agree. Big buyers pretty much tell them what they want and how much they are willing to pay for it.
            When the quality is bad, it is their fault, not China.
            But… There is a bad side.
            Years ago now I bought a 256Gb pen drive on ebay for an amazingly low price.
            The seller had fantastic feedback.
            I loaded 200Gb of data on it, and I could see all the files.
            I then coppied the data back to my hard drive.
            Less than 4Gb was all that copied.
            On researching it I discovered that the true size of the pen drive was 4Gb.
            It had an embedded software making it pretend to be 256Gb.
            I put in a dispute with ebay and imediatly got a refund.
            Ebay/Paypal knew it was a scam but still allowed it.
            They still do.
            You can see 2Tb pen drives on ebay now for as little as £10.
            Kingston disclosed in January this year the prodction of a 2Tb pen drive. When it goes on sale it will be around $900.
            Ebay have been selling the fakes for years.
            It is the same with batteries.
            I bought some 10,000ma batteries that turned out to be 500ma.
            Again, the refund was immediate.

          • RichardD

            I get it that people are afraid of bad ETs/EDs, as they should be. The love and lighters have it wrong in my opinion. There are both good and bad ETs/EDs. The esoteric axiom of as above so below is the way that creation really works in my opinion and experience. Opportunity doesn’t come without risk.

            If there was a set path for terrestrial civilizations transitioning to becoming extraterrestrial civilizations, we’d already have the curriculum laid out for us by those already there. But that’s not the way that the multiverse works. We have to find our own way based on our own efforts and accomplishments or failures. It’s not going to happen if people don’t do the work. All that it takes for evil to succeed is for good people do nothing.

          • Moussa Saab

            May I suggest a better opportunity for you to publish your thoughts on these lights and extraterrestrial stuff.

            Just go to quora and make an account, great website for sharing sophisticated work to smarter people.

            Nobody cares about ET/ED’s on a military analysis forum!

          • RichardD

            Military analysis of ET interaction and the technology involved is a primary concern in politics. If some people don’t want to think about or deal with it, that’s their prerogative. The secret space programs and break away civilizations that they spawn aren’t doing the rest of humanity any good. Personally I’m not interested in being a slave, dying at 100 and living out my life confined to the planet.

          • jerry hamilton

            Quora is a bad site now. jews rule there so on certain topics, dishonesty rules.
            They have mods that ensure that is so.

          • RichardD

            I’ve had one comment deleted here by the mod. Which was a stupid ziotroll illustration of an ugly monster. Considering some of the filth and stupidity that I’ve seen here by people like Matt posting illustrations of the President of Turkey in his underwear screwing a chicken from behind. I have no problem with the mod keeping stupid and banal postings off of the threads.

          • RichardD

            Upwards of 70% of the ufos flying around our skies are built here, maybe more people should care what’s going on.

          • RichardD

            You saw what the Jews did when they took over the Russian government in 1917. The Jews ran the extermination camps that culled a large percentage of Russians. The population of Russia is half today what it would be if the Czars had dejudified Russia earlier. You saw what the Jews did on 911 with sequestered directed energy technology. I don’t want this to be humanities future:

    From AMN, elements of these units to take part:
    Tiger Forces Division;
    14th Special Forces Division;
    1st Armored Division;
    4th Mechanized Division;
    9th Armored Division;
    Republican Guard 104th Brigade;
    Republican Guard 105th Brigade; and
    Republican Guard 106th Brigade.
    And Tigers brought in a lot of arty for the show. GO SAA :)

    • That Guy

      This is rape >:D

      • Sephy

        gangbang

      • PZIVJ

        Bear in mind Syrian units are a fraction of their strength on paper.
        Time to collapse the E Ghouta pocket from the east :)

    • Graeme Rymill

      Don’t forget the Russians! They are always there though nobody talks about them.

      • PZIVJ

        I also wonder about lack of Russian news about Afrin.
        Seems to be a news black out :/

        • velociraptor

          Rassia is pro-turkey in afrin. i see, you do not know the mechanism of russian propaganda news. :P

      • velociraptor

        Russians are at home in their dacha´s.

        • Sinbad2

          I doubt if many Russian enlisted men can afford a dacha.

    • Joe

      Note whole brigades. So Assad has to take those that can be spared to form a fighting group .

      Anyway may God bless them as they fight and die for the world against terrorists and those that supports terrorism.

      Amen

      • PZIVJ

        That’s why I added “elements of” to the AMN list.
        Many Syrian units are just a shadow of their former strength.
        Godspeed SAA :)

  • Leon Auguste

    I hope the rebels find it wise to surrender to avoid unnecessary blood shed… especially of civilians in the area.

    • grandel

      It will definitely make it easier to execute them by firing squad if they do.

      • PZIVJ

        BULLSHIT
        The Syrian govt has always held up their agreements to vacate fighters and civs from pockets. Many green buses to W Idlib I think.

        • Sinbad2

          Yes but then the US/Israel recycle them, and the SAA has to fight them again.
          When the US tried to overthrow Hafez Assad in the 1970’s, he slaughtered them all, and their families.
          Nobody would fight for the US after that, and the whole operation collapsed.

          Now I know his methods were awful, but if this American attack had been stopped early on, hundreds of thousands of lives would have been saved.

    • Joe

      The trouble is these guys are brainwashed since they first go to school and will fight even alone.

      Imagine Assad is fighting such fanatics and win…. Really Assad the great

      • Don’t read butthurt replies

        At this point these terrorist must’ve been drugged to end up getting so brainwashed to be how they are.

  • Barba_Papa

    So far the SAA seems to have tried hardest to attack the Jihadists in Harasta and Jobar, the most built up areas, which to the Jihadis was probably easiest to fortify. In a way East Ghouta seems reminiscent of East Aleppo. Where the Jihadis were able to hold and maintain their defensive line in the city’s heart for years without the frontlines changing much. The stalemate was ultimately broken when the Tigers first cut off their supply line along Castillo road and then broke through their defensive lines in the north, in the open ground, and only then moved into the build up areas through the rear.

    It would appear that attacking the Jihadists where they are strongest and have the best fortified positions is costly and basically stupid, so far better to repeat the East Aleppo operation by attacking East Ghouta in the open areas of the south and east, and only then move into the built up areas of the west.

    • RGtz98

      I too think likewise, Idk why did’nt they just use WW1 tactics of attacking several aires at once and take enough territory but not much in order to not produce a huge counter-attack. Of course with quickly setting up defenses. Anyhow hope they do this with low casualties and try to attack all of Eastern Ghouta not just those districts.

      • goingbrokes

        So far SAA operations in E Ghouta have been small scale, probing type actions. Partly this is because the focus was elsewhere and partly giving SAA time to get to grips with the jihadist tactics. I think we are going to see something much more spectacular now. E Aleppo style operation. The Tigers will punch through in several places to keep the enemy spread thin. The area will be carved in such a fashion that although the jihadist territory will shrink their front line will not shorten much. There are a lot of snipers in E Ghouta and this is a problem for the SAA. But they too will find themselves without support when the rats start running away. It will be interesting to see if SAA will bring the Terminator with them?

    • velociraptor

      SAA should take the agricultural fields. No food, no resistence.
