Syrian Army resumes counterterrorism operation near Damascus

22
Syrian army units resumed operations against terrorists in the Wadi Barad valley west of Damascus after the truce was broken down, an agreement on which was reached on January 7.




According to the Al Watan newspaper, the military and militia in this region "occupied four localities and established control over the strategic heights of Dahr al-Masabi."

"The troops are attacking the town of Kfar Zeit, which serves as a stronghold of the extremist group" Dzhebhat Fath ash-Sham "(the former" Dzhebhat an-Nusra ", banned in the Russian Federation)," - said in a statement.

The purpose of the operation in Wadi Barada is to restore the water supply of the capital of Syria - Damascus.

On January 5, the country's Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the UN Security Council stating that "as a result of the sabotage committed on December 24 by 2016 by terrorists" Dzhebhat an-Nusra, Damascus lost 80% of drinking water sources. "

The bandits not only blew up the water supply, but also contaminated it with diesel fuel. As a result, “over 7 million Damascus residents, including children and women, are experiencing an acute shortage of drinking water,” the message said.

    Do not want the good, it will be bad. It’s pointless to persuade bandits.

          In this sense, we must be afraid. clean water (drinking) is the most demanded resource!

            I understand everything, but where did such numbers come from and why then such a small army of Assad.

      And no one is going to persuade them. The truce was needed to save part of the civilian population, although they knew in advance that it would be violated by the militants. The appeal to the UN Security Council is an empty exercise. No one there except Russia cares about Damascus. It requires a topic that could discredit the activities of our country in Syria.

    it was against those bearded who, sensing the backlight, sharply changed their shoes in the air and wrote green letters against the background of the driven women and children to the UN, so that ASADA should be installed, they say that the evil dictator Sekin Sekin is cutting, help out. They survived, the terrorists write letters to the UN))

    It's generally very difficult for me to understand the term "armed moderate opposition". What it is? There are much clearer definitions such as "rebels", "bandit formations", "terrorists". Something I can’t imagine that the same English would come to an agreement with the sepoys, the federation with the confederation in 1861, Catherine II with Pugachev, Alexander Nevsky with the Teutonic Order.

      the Teutons are not "opposition". it is an imported enemy.

    Everything is more complicated there. The water source was at the "moderate opposition"
    with which Assad had an agreement "not to cut off the water" in exchange for non-interference
    in their affairs.
    And then the source was recaptured by Nusra. Now army and moderate want
    return the "status quo".

    On January 3, Wikileaks, an international organization that publishes classified information, released a recording of Kerry’s conversation with members of the delegation from the Syrian opposition as part of a UN mission on September 22.
    According to Kerry, the administration of US President Barack Obama, as part of the development of the Syrian issue, set out to remove the regime and eliminate President Bashar Hafez al-Assad. The once insignificant group of ISIS fighters has grown to the size of a terrorist network with the connivance of the American side. According to Kerry, the United States intentionally did not notice ISIS combat units, counting on the powerful expansion of radicals in Syria, which would provoke Assad to seek a diplomatic solution on US conditions and to resign from the post of head of the country.

    Good luck to the Syrian soldiers in the fight against Islamofascists and American terrorism.
