The real reasons why the U.S. and NATO allies want a “No-Fly-Zone” in Syria?
For humanitarian reasons?
No: because their mercenaries-terrorists, cannibals, cutthroats and headhunters on the field in Syria are going to be completely destroyed by the Patriotic Syrian People’s Armed Forces, and by their true friends and allies, which fight and die by their side for the freedom of the peoples by the global Zionist tyranny.
They fight and even die for you, for us: do not be fooled by the propaganda of the mainstream media.

This message is especially addressed to our friends in America and Europe: we know that among you there are many honest men and women of good will, strong and creative people. You are the ones who have allowed your nations to be great. Not thrown to the wind your honor, do not trust the dishonest criminals who are in charge of your nations, who are plunging the world into the abyss, at the whim and will of a few, who see themselves as “chosen”.
Stay men and women of honor, stay human, free yourself from your true tyrants dictators. (by SFP-WP)

The Syrian Air Force targeted a long military column of Jeish al-Fatah terrorist coalition in Southwestern Idlib, destroying a number of vehicles.

Syrian warplanes carried out several rounds of combat sorties over Jeish al-Fatah’s supply-military convoys and bases along the road connecting al-Najiyeh to al-Halouz in Jisr al-Shughour region, inflicting major losses on the column.

Dozens of the militants were also killed or wounded in the air raid.

A large volume of arms and munitions were also destroyed in the attack.

Terrorists Sustain Heavy Losses in Syrian and Russian Airstrikes in Aleppo Province, Quneitra, Dara’a, Deir Ezzour

The Syrian and Russian warplanes pounded terrorists’ gathering centers in Aleppo province, and inflicted heavy losses on the militants over the past 24 hours. The aerial bombardments killed and wounded scores of terrorists in Aleppo province. The Syrian army also inflicted heavy losses on the terrorist groups in other key regions across Syria.


The Syrian army and popular forces, backed by the Russian air force, continued their attacks against the terrorists in areas Northeast of Aleppo and seized control over several strategic regions.

Media sources reported that the Syrian army troops won control of Manasher al-Brij, Mojbal al-Nazarat, al-Arz al-Hamra and a number of plants near Jandoul square while clashes still continue between them and the militants.

The Russian fighter jets also targeted the terrorists’ positions in Hananou, al-Heidariyeh, al-Bae’din square and Arz al-Hamra districts, the sources said, and added the their air assault destroyed militants’ weapons and equipment and inflicted tens of casualties on them.

Earlier reports on Saturday said that the Syrian army soldiers and popular forces cut off Jeish al-Fatah’s key supply route to Northeastern Aleppo, forcing terrorists in at least three districts of the city to face an acute shortage of arms and ammunition supplies.

“Syrian government forces marched on terrorists’ positions in al-Brij and Mojbal al-Nazarat in the Northern side of Aleppo and, meantime, seized control over a strategic road in the Eastern outskirts of the city used by the terrorist groups to transfer arms and ammunition cargos to Jeish al-Fatah’s positions in the Northeastern and Northern districts of Aleppo,” military sources said.

Following these advances in the North and the cut-off of the supply route in the East, now the army has the upper-hand in the frontline along Hananou Youth Housing Complex, Hananou and al-Nazarat region, according to the source.


Syrian military forces repelled terrorist groups’ attacks on their positions near a village North of Quneitra, and inflicted, at least, 20 casualties on the militants.

Terrorists’ assaults to break through government positions near the village of Tal al-Shahm were repulsed by the soldiers of the 4th division of the Syrian Army.

Terrorist groups left behind 20 dead bodies and retreated from the battlefield. An unspecified number of militants were also wounded in the clashes, reports said.

Also in the same region, the Syrian army’s artillery units opened heavy fire at the terrorists’ centers near the village of Mas’hareh, inflicting several casualties on the militants.



Terrorist groups in the Southern province of Dara’a have received a large number of man-portable air-defense systems (MANPAD), hundreds of 9K32 Strela-2, also known as SA-7 Grail, that have been paid for by their regional Arab backers, Saudis, Qataris…

The tyrants of the gulf [friends and allies of the US, UK, NATO] have spent a large amount of money to purchase 9K32 Strela-2, called Cobra by the terrorist gangs, from East European countries now under the NATO umbrella.

9K32 Strela-2 is used to target low-attitude flying planes. The terrorist gangs in Dael, North-Dara’a have already used Cobras to target Syrian military aircraft.

Thousand of U.S.-made TWO missiles have been also delivered to the mercenary-terrorist gangs across Syria.

Deir Ezzur

The Syrian army thwarted an attack by the ISIL on the government forces’ military positions in the city of Deir Ezzur, and killed several terrorists, including a senior commander.

Abu Mohajer Maghrebi, a notorious DAESH commander, was among the several terrorists killed in the clashes near the village of al-Mariyeh in the surrounding areas of Deir Ezzur airport.

The Syrian army also destroyed three ISIL military vehicles in the battle in Deir Ezzur city.


Aleppo: 2,000 Militants Ready to Surrender to Syrian Gov’t

Local sources in Aleppo said on Saturday that some 2,000 militants have declared readiness to end fight against the government after rising public protests against the presence of Jeish al-Fatah terrorists in the Eastern districts of the city.

“In an unprecedented move, a least 2,000 militants have contacted their families and announced their readiness to lay down arms and join the peace plan in Aleppo city,” Arabic-language al-Watan reported on Saturday, quoting militants’ relatives and family members.

“In the meantime, renowned figures and tribal leaders in Aleppo districts have formed local committees to identify those militants who want to join the peace agreement to introduce them to the national reconciliation committees,” al-Watan said, adding “Popular protests against militancy and the Syrian government forces’ advances have caused a rising despair among the militants and a recent growth in their surrender to the government forces.”

“A large number of militants in Seif al-Dowleh, Salahuddin, Bostan al-Pasha, Karam al-Jabal, Bostasn al-Qasr have laid down arms and surrendered to the authorities,” the Syrian paper added.

Meantime, Syrian military planes dropped thousands of surrender-now leaflets over militant-held districts in Aleppo on Saturday.

Commander of the operations’ department at the Russian General Staff Lieutenant General Sergey Rodskoy said on Thursday that his country’s army is ready to ensure a safe exit for gunmen and civilians who want to leave the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo.

In a statement, Rodskoy said that the West ignores the use of civilians as human shields by the armed groups in Syria and continue to launch a media campaign against Russia by accusing it of bombing Aleppo randomly.

He pointed out that Russia was ready to help in the operation of delivering humanitarian aid to the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo, stressing the need for guarantees on the part of the gunmen who are there in order to avoid a repeat of the attack on an aid convoy in Oram al-Kubra to the West of Aleppo on September 19.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that the government, due to its keenness on the lives of the citizens living in Eastern Aleppo, expressed full readiness to ensure the safety of those who wanted to leave the area.

The source added that the Syrian government also would guarantee the safety of gunmen who wanted to leave the area to settle their legal status or to head to other areas for normal life to return to Eastern Aleppo and the state service institutions to resume work to meet the needs of the citizens who want to stay in Eastern Aleppo.
