    BTW, hours after losing that Su-22M-3 flow by Maj Noures Hassan over Qalamoun, Assadists have also lost a Mi-25 flown by Maj-Gen Muhammad Badr Mahmoud and Capt Zein Nayef Khaloof over Eastern Ghouta.

    Photo below is showing Gen Mahmoud...

    Ever since, Darayya is bombed by fighter-bombers (instead by Mi-25, as the last 25+ days):

    Shocked there's not more coverage of this. Amount of loot captured by JaF at Kinsaba is staggering. Here's an album

    included 8 tanks, 4 BMP,, artillery and ATGMs....

    Not a bad weapons haul from an area a senior Assad Commander who claimed the area was empty and was of no importance....

    Recent gains in Jabal #Turkman now just about reopens logistics route back in Turkman after being pinned down by ATGMs for so long during day time.

    Mainly #FSA groups now pushing to Jabal Abo Ali and al-Baydah in Turkmen mountain #Latakia. Not sure if Jaish al-Fath involved

    Rebels take Jabal al-Qal'ah again in #Latakia countryside

    Rebels discovered 2 #IS SVBIEDs before detonated in crowded Bab al-Hawa border crossing with Turkey.

    30 airstrikes on #Jairoud town in eastern #Qalamoun after the shot down of a fighter jet in the area yesterday

    Appears the Russians do not know where theSA8 is located so they just bomb everything in their way....

    They know the SA8 is a shot and scoot system and hard to find if on the move and since they do not have any real GMTI ISR abilities they will only "see it" when it activates into search mode...

    Rebels seized again Mazrat Shahin from IS in northern #Aleppo

    The difference between ALL Syrian rebel groups and #Assad & his allies is:
    Regime & Co. attack 90% civilians.
    Rebels attack 90% mil targets.


    Reality.
    Rebels - among them one child soldier - celebrate killing of #Assad Republican Guard trooper in #Aleppo.
    The war in #Syria caused a barbarization of an epic scale (also thx to our politicians' ignorance of it).
    This is a fact, seen on all sides.

    Patience still "running out", @JohnKerry, @GermanyDiplo and co.?!
    ACT or at least stop pretending to be interested.


    There are no safe zones, no cessations of violence, no regimes of silence and no mercy.
    Hoping for this from Russia & Assad is #delusional.


    BUT WAIT that is exactly what the Obama/Rhodes WH is hoping Putin and Assad will do...which they have never done before.....

    Appears that the US supported Kurdish proxy SDF...which is part and parcel of the YPG/PKK a US designated terrorist organization is now declaring it's independence EXACTLY WHAT the Turks stated they will not allow...their "red line"....

    THIS cannot possibly be the Obama/Rhodes Syrian FP or is it?????

    Yes - and no.

    The 'problem' is this: YPG militia in northern Aleppo (city) and in Efrin Enclave was organized by the PKK and with some support from Assad regime.

    Then they declared themselves 'SDF'.

    However, except via links to regime-held areas, and for trading with insurgent-held areas, they are de-facto cut-off from any kind of outside support since years.

    They are NOT US-supported though, and their declaration for being SDF is as valid if I would now declare my piece of real estate something like 'Independent Democratic Kingdom of Schnurliland', and request membership in the UN.

    This is the face of the Obama/Rhodes WH who does nothing "stupid" in Syria....except allowing civilians (men, women, children) to be killed ...
