East-Aleppo Siege Nears Its End

is the situation in east-Aleppo as of Dec 4, 6PM ET. The
enclosed green area, held by al-Qaeda and its allies,
will soon be gone.
Fabrice Balanche -
says that the foreseeable Syrian government victory
in Aleppo will not be a gain at all. Bollocks. He and
his colleagues have obviously given up on the case and
now issue face saving laments. Syria's alliance is
winning, U.S. policy
is changing and the end of the war is now
foreseeable. The British MI-6 propaganda operation "Bana
expired. The operation's main star was a seven year
old girl in east-Aleppo who could not speak English but
tweeted world politics in perfect Twitter-English even
when the Internet in all Aleppo was down. It has now
vanished. This is just like one of the first anti-Syrian
propaganda operations, the "Gay
girl in Damascus", which
expired in 2011 shortly before its male U.S.
operator in Scotland was exposed. What will all the
media who have willfully fallen for this "Bana" nonsense
now tell their viewers and readers?
Since the start
of the Syrian army offense on the Takfiri held
some 21,000+ civilians have left towards the
government held areas in the western part.
confirm that these civilians had been held hostages
by the Takfiris and had to
flee under fire:
"We were under
pressure by all means, psychological and financial.
The gunmen were trying to prevent us from leaving
until the army came," said 36-year-old Amina Rwein,
who fled with her husband, seven daughters and three
under fire from the gunmen as we were leaving and
the army hit the minaret from where the sniper was
shooting, and then we crossed," she said.
fighters among those civilians gave themselves up to the
Syrian army. 480 of them were locals and where led go
after they pledged to end all fighting.
want to stay in the city and continued fighting
until the end. This sabotages plans by Secretary of
State Kerry who
tries to get another ceasefire in which some
al-Qaeda fighters would leave but other Takfiris kept in
control of east-Aleppo. Kerry was late anyway. That deal
was no longer on the table. The EU has even worse ideas
- it wants to
bribe the Syrian government to keep some Jihadis
alive and in power. What a joke! The Russian and Syrian
forces will not leave any enemy fighter in the area
alive or any inch of Aleppo city grounds occupied by
them. Later the same will apply to all of Syria.
exits for civilians and fighters who want to leave will
be set up soon. All the old exit areas in the
northern parts are now completely under Syrian
I doubt that
there are many, if any civilians left. As my original
estimated from October 15
Based on the
Daraya numbers and those of other sieges in Syria
there are probably no more than 4-5,000 fighters and
some 3-5 civilians per fighter, i.e. their immediate
families, in east-Aleppo. The real total could
easily be as low as 20,000.
The UN Refugees
Agency and UN officials
fairy tales of some
270,000 civilians under siege in east-Aleppo.
Numbers every "western" media repeated without caveats.
More than 60% of the areas have been liberated. The
International Red Cross
went there and they were empty. Where are all those
hundred-thousands civilians the UN envisioned now?
There are still
daily missile attacks from the Takfiri held areas on the
government held western areas and each of these is
costing lives. UPDATE: According
to SANA 8
people were killed and 25 wounded today when the
Takfiris fired missiles into residential areas of
west-Aleppo. A Russian field hospital set up over the
last days to help refugees from east Aleppo came under
attack from the "moderate" Takfiris. A female Russian
was killed, several other personal were wounded and
was (pics) destroyed. /UPDATE
create urgency to drain the cauldron as soon as
possible. There are several other reason, next to that
urgency, why the attack on east-Aleppo proceeds much
faster than expected.
Syrian army and its allies slow down their attacks
infighting keeps the Jihadists in the cauldron busy.
Yesterday the al-Qaeda group Jabhat al-Nusra joined the
CIA equipped Zinki group in attacks on the headquarters
of some local armed groups who had control over stores
filled with food and ammunition. Such moments of
infighting are ideal for the attacking Syrian forces to
go forward in unexpected ways.
government forces do not proceed along the lines
military professionals expected. They do not attack
along main roads or obvious axes with enemy checkpoints
and prepared traps but probe from every side until they
find a weakness and then go through lightly defended
densely build up areas to attack the checkpoint
defenders from the rear. The 25,000 Syrian army fighters
and the 10,000 foreign allies (4,000 from Iraq, 4,000
provided by Iran and 2,000 Hizbullah from Lebanon) have
unprecedented air support from Syrian planes and
helicopters. Reports of "Russian bombing" of east-Aleppo
are all false and have been false for the last six
weeks. Only the Syrian airforce is active in the area.
plan is to squeeze all the Takfiris into one small area
in east-Aleppo (probably the "old city") and to then
negotiate their departure to Idleb in north-west Syria.
Idelb itself is
already filled with infighting Jihadis of various
stripes who were offered exit to it from several areas
around Damascus, Homs and Hama. It will soon be a
shooting alley for the Syrian and Russian air-forces.
The Jihadis will flee to Turkey, which is a nightmare
for Erdogan, and maybe onward from there into "western"
European cities. There they will be pampered and rest
until their masters call for another battle.
