Update from Timur: Supply route of the terrorists cut off in Darayya boiler, Madaya residents suffer from famine because of the militants
A Ukrainian citizen, a native of Donbass with callsign Timur reports the latest information on the situation in Syria to “Russian Spring”, currently fighting for the Kurdish resistance and in charge of coordinating with the Syrian army.
The situation in Syria (January 8, 2016)
In the province of Aleppo, the Syrian air force carried out an airstrike on the positions of militants in Tel Ajar and Tatomrash. And as a result of the attack, after artillery preparation, troops of the Kurdish militia entrenched on the outskirts of Tatomrash.
In the province of Latakia the government troops and people’s militia took strategically important areas with the support of the Russian air force— Tel-Herba, Juba mountain and height 1023. The military reports that dozens of militants have been destroyed.
The heights near the village of Sarraf, as well as warehouses of weapons and ammunition in Dagdagan have been captured.
Darayya boiler continues to boil
In province of Daraa the Syrian aviation powerfully covered the positions of the militants near the town of Sheikh Miskin, Nawa and Atbaa. In total, about 150 militants of Jabhat al-Nusra and the Free Syrian army have been killed.
The military took control of a section of the road Sheikh Miskin — Nawa, cutting the second most important supply route of the militants. In the province of Homs near the city of Al-Qaryatayn government troops together with units of the people’s militia clashed with a group of bandits, destroying 13 militants and a “tachanka”.
In the Darayya boiler as a result of fire on militant positions an observation post was destroyed. Today the terrorists have lost one of “tachankas” and 18 people killed.
Blockade of Madaya
Difficult situation remains in the besieged city of Madaya near Damascus, which suddenly became famous thanks to the recent fakes from the opposition, which were then spread worldwide by the BBC and other ‘advocates’ of human rights.
Reporting about starving residents, they forgot to mention that the residents are starving due to 600 fighters of Ahrar ash-Sham, Jabhat al-Nusra and Free Syrian army entrenched in the city, who made the residents a bargaining chip in their negotiations with the government, hiding behind them as a human shield.
There is food in the city, but it is available only to those who have money, because the militants inflated the prices, including for “humanitarian aid”.
The opposition also failed to mention about the recent demonstrations in the city, where residents demanded that the militants leave and allow the army to enter the city. They don’t mention that yesterday the government gave the green light for delivery of UN humanitarian aid to the city
Damascus awaits new terrorist attacks
The threat of terrorist attacks remains in the capital of the republic and throughout its territory. This time, according to intelligence, booby-trapped business class vehicles could be used.
