BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has imposed full-control over the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo after more than 4 years of war inside this provincial capital in northern Syria.

News of the Syrian Arab Army being in full-control of the east Aleppo neighborhoods comes just minutes after the remaining jihadist rebels were transferred from the provincial capital to the suburbs located in the southwestern outskirts of the city.

Thousands of civilians have already taken to the streets to celebrate the final departure of the remaining jihadist rebels that were holed up in the Sukkari and Al-Zibdiyah neighborhoods.

With all of east Aleppo under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces can now focus on more pressing fronts, such as Palmyra, East Ghouta, and the Golan Heights.

For the jihadist rebels, the loss of east Aleppo is a bitter pill to swallow, as just 8 months ago it appeared that they would be able to hold onto this part of the city for a long period of time.

France has nothing of a socialist country unfortunately, actually, it’s more an ultra-liberalist (capitalist) country with +20% of pro-fascists. The so-called socialist party has for long nothing socialist at all, you can say the heart is on the left but the wallet is on the right. “Conservative” right wingers are even much worst, remember how Sarkozy destroyed Libya and I’m not even speaking of the far-right dreaming of gas-chambers for the Arabs… At least F.Hollande barred any backing to FSA, Nusra, etc and he has greatly helped crushing AQIM, al-Murabitun, Boko-Haram etc etc in Africa. Only westerner to have sent… Read more »

No, I disagree. France is a socialist country, where nearly 60% of the PIB is directed by the government, where 3 workers on 5 are paid by the government. Nothing of ultra-liberalist, except if you understand that socialist = ultra-liberalist (at the french meaning which is not the US meaning). The country is in war again themselve, so the need to divert the population with stuf like Libya or now Syria. Conservatives like the Sarkoboy are socialists, nothing else. For your word on Nazi : it is a shortcut for National Socialism. So there are all brothers, despite the game… Read more »

“No, I disagree. France is a socialist country, where nearly 60% of the PIB is directed by the government, where 3 workers on 5 are paid by the government” => You should update your data! If only it was true! Unfortunately, although France has the highest number of state servants in the EU, it’s only 21% So 79% serve the capitalist. “that socialist = ultra-liberalist (at the french meaning which is not the US meaning)” => In French, ultra-liberalist = ultra-capitalist i.e. Thatcher. Although the definitition of fascism by its inventor, Mussolini, is that it’s capitalism pushed to the extreme.… Read more »

“Unfortunately, although France has the highest number of state servants in the EU, it’s only 21%” Ok, so tell me why more nearly 60% of PIB is decided by the gouverment! And why france is in competition with Greece. “I personally know several of these areas, BTW… No no go zones here, ROFL!!! Actually, there are a number of ZERO in the country : discrimination is illegal!” Nawak ! There is lot of no-go zone. You don’t leave in France, that impossible. But you can’t understand because impossible is not french! “Where you might have a shift of meaning is… Read more »

Unfortunately, Deir ez Zor will become the most pressing front and the most practical means of relieving this outpost would be by an airborne reinforcement. I don’t think that the option for a Kuweires type overland relief campaign seems practical, given recent SAA performance. Though their armor suggests the capability for a mechanized assault across ~200 km of desert, so far, they haven’t attempted anything so ambitious (though they should). I’ve predicted previously that, as ISIS is increasingly pressured from the north (Rakkah), northwest (Aleppo – Al Bab), and northeast (Mosul/Nineveh), and with the way west (Palmyra) blocked, the Deir… Read more »

Yes I thinks so too. IS needs oil to wage war. Deir ez Zor and Palmyra look likely.

Interesting strategy, really. Well, Deir Ezzor already receives/received air-reinforcement, wasn’t it the case, they wouldn’t still hold the city for so long 😉 Thus, it’s clear that some low-passes to airdrop tanks on pallets etc would greatly help : Now, although it failed, the advance of Desert Hawks last summer was very interesting : in fact, Daesh really sucks in open field. It may be interesting for SAA to push in open terrain zone with just circumventing the strongholds without trying to take them and cut all supply lines, i.e. beginning by the East-Aleppo Rasm Aboud air-base area and do… Read more »

Aleppo, Aleppo, Aleppo
The world hears your constant cries
Aleppo, Aleppo, Aleppo
Hearts bleed as your city dies
Tears streaming
Bombs raining
Daylight graying
Rubble and dust and grime
Screams call from underneath
Thousands of souls float up into the air
To haunt those that master the sky
To silent the night for others
To walk the long path towards peace

If you are sympathizing with the terrorists who slit throats and cut off heads, you are sick.

Aleppo is actually celebrating the departure of the so-called “moderate rebels” from al-Qaeda affiliates ot the infamous Na’al ‘Dine al-Zinki (you know, the child-beheaders). Think about it : even Hizbullah were at the X-mas tree party!
Yeeep, Aleppo is partying and celebrating X-mas and also the departure of this bunch of monsters!
Such thing already happened 72 years ago in Paris when the 2e DB (2e Division Blindée = 2nd Armoured Divison) of general Leclerc took the city :

Look at it Kathleen :

Exactly the contrary you believe!
Do you think that both the Syrian Orthodox and Catholic church would support the government if the govt was as the “mainstream medias” portray him? Anyone who knows how propaganda and mass manipulations are made understands the bias, anyone who looks closely the videos of propaganda assets like the infamous White Helmets sees how it’s totally staged, actually, even Ed Wood did less errors shooting his Z-series movies!
