DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:35 P.M.) – After a week of deadly clashes in northern Hama, the jihadist defensive line finally buckled on Friday as government forces retook a large chunck of territory from various jihadist factions in central Syria.

Following the capture of six villages in the morning, the Tiger Forces alongside allied SAA factions stormed numerous checkpoints on the proximity of the Christian city of Mhardeh.

After a brief firefight in the afternoon, the SAA seized the Khattab warehouses and Tall Flifleh hilltop just north of it. Minutes later, government forces also seized the Al-Shliout and Abu Ubaydah checkpoints on a different axis in what appears to be a major counter-offensive.

Effectively, a looming jihadist assault on Mhardeh has been avoided in the eleventh hour.

Next, the SAA will try to encircle Maardes in a bid to reverse all Islamist gains achieved since launching their offensive on March 21.

It’s preferable them never make it to Ankara : the other MOFO will then try to smuggle ’em into the EU.

I hope the terrorists enjoyed this nice f**k 🙂
The burn parties were also pretty beautiful, as the bullet parties where fun 🙂
I wait for the next burn parties, and I will enjoy for sure 🙂

I’d rather prefer these terrorist to understand how they are wrong and how they are tooled as cannon-fodder for a cause that is also wrong but, as it’s not the case, there is no other option than force pacification…

They are brainwashed by learning by heart in early youth and by an oppressive patriarchal system. They believe in their “anti” propaganda. Very few of the most intelligent can throw this off.

The Dar al-Gharb “house of the West” (enemy like Dar al-Harb) lacks the resources to reeducate so many people. It is not like the “reeducation” of a basically liberal and western land that has fallen under the Fascists and indoctrinated for 12 years.

p.s. Death penalty is just and indicator that a society lacks the resources for long prison terms. And sorry they are too many perpetrators.
