In the end, superior firepower in the form of tanks, artillery and airstrikes would propel Syrian troops to overrun all militant defense lines and strong-points within the town…….By this advance, the Syrian Army virtually isolated the towns of An-Nashabiyah and Hazrama from all other militant-held areas within East Ghouta and de facto split to the insurgent pocket into two……..However, when the Syrian Army entered An-Nashabiyah and Hazrama, it found the towns to be completely bereft of insurgent fighters who had fled both settlements in the final hours of the Uataya battle to avoid being encircled:

SYRIA: ‘ ‘ Five civilians killed & 55-others injured after militants target Damascus ‘

#AceNewsReport – SYRIA:Aug.12: Five civilians were killed and 55 others injured after militants targeted Damascus on Wednesday with mortars and rockets that landed in various neighborhoods, Syria’s state news agency SANA reported on Wednesday.

The shells were fired from positions in the eastern al-Ghouta, a source at Damascus Police Command said, adding that most of the victims were women and children.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was expected to head for Damascus from Beirut later in the day to discuss a new plan to resolve the civil war.

IRAQ: ‘ SYRIAN AIR FORCE DESTROY TWO OF THE THREE JETS SEIZED BY ISLAMIC STATE ‘

#AceWorldNews – IRAQ – October 22 – The Syrian Air Force has destroyed two of three jets seized by the Islamic State (IS) group last week, the information minister in Damascus said.

Omran al-Zoubi said on television that Syrian aircraft bombed the jets as they were landing at Jarrah airbase in the eastern countryside of Aleppo province.

The militants were able to hide a third jet, which the Syrian Air Force is now searching for, AP quoted the minister as saying.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had reported that IS militants flew three MiG fighter jets over the air base with the help of former Iraqi air force pilots.

DAMASCUS: ‘ SYRIAN REGIME AIR-RAIDS KILL MANY INCLUDING CIVILIANS ‘

#AceWorldNews – SYRIA – October 17- At least 15 civilians, including three minors, were killed in Syrian regime air raids on a rebel-held town near the capital on Friday, a monitoring group said.

“At least 15 civilians, including three aged under 18, were killed in eight raids by Syrian military planes on several districts of the town of Douma,” 13 kilometres (eight miles) north-east of Damascus, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

On Thursday, regime air strikes killed 20 people, including two children and two women, in Jisrin to the east of Damascus, and two others in nearby Saqba, according to the Observatory.

Closing in on Douma, a town of 200,000 residents, the army has seized control of Mleiha and Adra and has set its sights on Jobar and Ain Tarma, all towns to the east of the capital.

UNITED STATES: ‘ TOP MILITARY COMMANDER NO FLY-ZONE OVER DAMASCUS MAY BE PART OF CAMPAIGN ‘

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES – October 13 – Even though Islamic State militants in Syria have no aircraft to speak of, the US’s top military commander says establishing a no-fly zone may be part of the campaign.

Such a move is what US allies, including Turkey, have been pressing for.

The possible establishment of a no-fly zone over northern Syria was hinted at by Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey.

“Do I anticipate that there could be circumstances in the future where that would be part of the campaign? Yeah,” he told ABC’s This Week program.

The general added that in response to the bombing campaign the IS are learning to blend in with the population and hide from the coalition attacks.

“An enemy adapts and they’ll be harder to target. Yeah, they know how to maneuver and how to use populations and concealment,” he said.

Earlier, US Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagel indicated that there was a possibility for a no-fly zone in Syria, as per Ankara’s request.

“We have discussed all these possibilities and will continue to talk about what the Turks believe they will require,” The New York Times reported him as saying.

` President Bashar-Al-Assad Wins Third Term With Landslide Victory ‘

#AceWorldNews – SYRIA – DAMASCUS –  June 04 – Incumbent President Bashar Assad has overwhelmingly won Syria’s presidential election, the speaker of the Syrian parliament said Wednesday.

A total of 88.7% of voters (10.2 million people) voted for Assad, he said.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has won a third term in office after securing 88.7% of votes in Tuesday’s presidential election, the parliamentary speaker says.

Earlier, Syria’s constitutional court put the vote turnout at 73.47%.

Voting took place in government-controlled areas, but not in parts of the north and east held by rebels.

Tens of thousands of Syrians have died in three years of civil war in Syria, with millions more displaced.

President Assad’s key challengers, Hassan al-Nouri and Maher Hajjar, received 4.3% and 3.2% of the vote respectively.

It was the first time in decades that more than one name – outside of the Assad family – had been allowed to stand as presidential candidate.

But the Syrian opposition in rebel-held areas had dismissed the election as a farce, arguing that it has no credibility in the midst of a civil war.

The results of the election were announced by parliamentary speaker Jihad Laham on Wednesday.

` Syrian One-Sided Presidential Election Starts Amid Cries from Critics of it Being a Sham ‘

#AceWorldNews – DAMASCUS (SANA)- Presidential candidate Dr. Bashar al-Assad cast a vote Tuesday morning at Martyr Ma’asarani School polling centre in Damascus.

(BBC) – President Bashar al-Assad is widely expected to win a third seven-year term in office.

As Syria’s presidential election candidates started their campaign in the country, critics of the Syrian government have denounced the election as a sham.

The event comes after Supreme Constitutional Court issued the final list of candidates on May 10.

Maher Abdul-Hafiz Hajjar, lawmaker from Aleppo, Hassan Abdullah al-Nouri, lawmaker from Damascus, and Bashar Hafez al-Assad, incumbent president, are three candidates for June’s presidential election.


(Posters of candidates and their slogans are also visible all around the capital, Damascus)

(PressTV) – Under the Syrian law, each candidate needs to secure the support of 35 lawmakers in the 254-member parliament as each MP is allowed to back one candidate.

The vote must take place between 60 and 90 days before President Assad’s seven-year term comes to an end on July 17.

Damascus has insisted that it would hold the vote despite the foreign-backed militancy that has plagued the Arab country for more than three years.

Last month, Syria dismissed Western and opposition accusations regarding the presidential election, saying that it is planning to hold a free and transparent vote.

Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since March 2011.

Over 150,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced due to the violence fuelled by the foreign-backed militants.

` Al-Nursa Front Use Civilians as Human Shields as Syrian Army Advances on Damascus ‘

#AceNewsServices – DAMASCUS – May 28 – The advance of the Syrian army on the locations of militants in Damascus outskirts has been practically stopped.

Servicemen are forced to carry out protracted trench combat actions, while mediators are trying to convince the Mujahidin militants of the terrorist al-Nusra Front to free hundreds, or even thousands of civilians, who are used as human shield by the bandits.


“There is fear and panic between them.

We can hear this by intercepting radio conversations. They are always blaming some Arur, as we understand, a Saudi, who enrolled them.

They came for caliphate, but they will meet doom,” Colonel Khalid, commander of a military unit in al-Qabun district — less than 10 km from Damascus down-town, told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.

This district on the capital’s east is of strategic importance since it borders with the Homs – Damascus highway that runs further to the south to Daraa near the border with Jordan.

Al-Qabun fell under control of the militants in late 2011 under the same scenario used three years later in Kiev on the Maidan: peaceful protests were fusilladed by anonymous snipers in order to cast the blame for hundreds of deaths upon the governmental forces.

General Wafiq, who commands the Syrian army in al-Qabun, is convinced that the initial tactics was first rehearsed in Syria as on a testing range, and Israeli secret services and their American allies are primarily involved in it.

In the conversation with an ITAR-TASS reporter, the general recalled a trip of then ambassador of the US to Syria Robert Ford to Homs and Hama, where he generously pledged to help with money weapons to the rebels in their confrontation with the ‘regime’.

“We could attack even tomorrow and eliminate all of them, but there are many civilians, hundreds, thousands, and therefore we do not get the order,” Colonel Khalid says. “They are surrounded, completely blocked.

The Syrians would have surrendered long ago, but there may be up to a thousand foreign mercenaries, and they know that there will be no mercy on them, all will be eliminated, and we will not judge them.”

` Syria Expels Jordan’s Top Diplomat in Tit-For-Tat Move ‘

#AceWorldNews – DAMASCUS – May 26 – Syria declared Jordan’s charge d’affaires in Damascus persona non grata, Reuters said.

The move was taken in response to what Damascus said was an unjustified decision by the kingdom to expel its ambassador.

Earlier in the day, Jordan gave Syrian Ambassador Bahjat Suleiman, a former general and intelligence chief, 24 hours to leave the country.

The envoy was accused of having made repeated public criticisms of the kingdom.

` United Nations Humanitarian Chief Expresses Outrage at Deliberate Attack on Warehouse in Damascus ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED NATIONS – DAMASCUS – 25 May 2014 – The United Nations humanitarian chief today expressed outrage at a deliberate attack on a humanitarian warehouse in the Damascus province of Syria, which occurred as aid workers were preparing to distribute urgently needed supplies to hundreds of families in the besieged city.

“The targeting of the warehouse, which reportedly killed several people and wounded one Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) volunteer, is evidence of the blatant disregard for International Humanitarian Law which is a disturbing feature of the conflict in Syria,” UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos said in a statement from her office (OCHA).

She added that the attack violated assurances from those involved in the conflict that they would refrain from hostilities while the joint UN/SARC convoy was on the ground.

The city of Douma, in the Eastern Ghouta area of Damascus province, has been under siege by Government forces for over 18 months. It has been nearly two months since aid workers were last able to bring supplies into the city.

“People are in desperate need of food, water, sanitation, health services and medicines,” Ms. Amos said.

The joint convoy carried food and non-food items, and medicines for the treatment of chronic diseases for up to 24,000 people. As a result of the attack distribution on site was forced to be cancelled and the supplies delivered to Syrian Arab Red Crescent partners in Douma.

“Aid workers are frequently targeted or subjected to harassment in Syria,” the UN senior official said. Among recent incidents, aid workers on 8 February came under direct attack during the aid delivery and evacuation of people from the old city of Homs.

Such attacks are “utterly unacceptable and have a devastating ripple effect as they hinder the provision of aid to those in desperate need”, said Ms. Amos.

#AceWorldNewsSYRIAMay 09 – The last 16 containers of Syrian dangerous chemicals to be destroyed remain in area where fighting is on, the head of the Joint Mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the United Nations, Sigrid Kaag told AP.

She said a ceasefire will be needed to get the remaining containers, representing 8 percent of Syria’s declared stockpile, out of an air base near Damascus controlled by armed opposition groups of “the more extreme kind,” Kaag said.

She called on countries with influence on forces fighting in Syria to help arrange access for experts to the site and safe transport for the chemicals to the port of Latakia, where Danish and Norwegian ships are waiting to take the containers to a US vessel for destruction.

` Rebel Forces Prevent Aid Convoy from Preventing from Entering Villages of Nubi and Zahraa in Aleppo ‘

#AceWorldNews – BEIRUT – May 07 – Exhausted and worn out from a year-long siege, hundreds of Syrian rebels on Wednesday left their last remaining bastions in the heart of the central city of Homs under a cease-fire deal with government forces.

The exit of some 1,200 fighters and civilians will mark a de facto end of the rebellion in the battered city, which was one of the first places to rise up against President Bashar Assad’s rule, earning it the nickname of “capital of the revolution.”

Gaining full control of Syria’s third largest city is a major win for Assad on multiple levels. Militarily, it solidifies the government hold on a swath of territory in central Syria, linking the capital Damascus with government strongholds along the coast and giving a staging ground to advance against rebel territory further north.

It cited Al-Jadeed television as saying that an aid convoy was prevented from entering the villages of Nubl and Zahraa in Aleppo. The two Shia villages are besieged by rebel forces, and the deal to evacuate the rebels in Homs was contingent on aid being allowed into the villages.

The convoy had been stopped by an Islamist brigade, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Politically, gains on the ground boost Assad’s hold on power as he seeks to add a further claim of legitimacy in presidential elections set for June 3.

` Syria Commemorates Martyrs Day and the Sacrifices Made by Syrian Journalists to Bring us the News '

#AceNewsServices – DAMASCUS – May 06 – (SANA) An ever-growing strength is inspired by the imperishable memory of the shinning martyrs of the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), which today glows brighter as Syria commemorates Martyrs’ Day.

The stories of sacrifice, commitment and heroism of Ali Abbas, Ali Ahmad, Samer al-Masri, Khaled Sida, Azzam Abbas, Mohamamd Ibrahim and Riyad al-Masri have offered a beacon of encouragement to Syria’s journalists who have vowed from day one of the crisis to be the voice of truth.

The Syrian journalists, like everyone else, have dauntlessly fought to reveal the horridness of the terrorist war raging in Syria in defiance of the deafening silence, at best, and blinding falseness, at worst, of the coverage of the western and Gulf media.

None of his colleagues ever imagined that August 11 of 2012 was the last day to see Ali Abbas, Head of Domestic News Department, whose life came to an end as terrorists shot him dead inside his house after he was back home from a long day at work.

Answering the call of military duty, Ali Ahmad, who had showed unequalled devotion to his job as an editor and translator at the French Bulletin Department, unhesitantly headed to the frontlines of the battlefield and got killed defending the homeland, despite the fact that he could, though choosing not to, request delayed military enlistment being at the time a Master’s Degree student.

The terrorists’ cowardly acts of firing mortar shells whenever getting hemmed in were what claimed the lives of Samer al-Masri, Khaled al-Sida and Azzam Abbas, in addition to Mohamamd Ibrahim who works at the cafeteria, as shells landed in the surrounding of SANA building on March 26, 2013.

While recalling the memory of their dead colleagues and speaking of their special traits, SANA workers pledge that they will continue to walk the truth-seeking path of journalism fearlessly defying all challenges, obstacles and terrorist threats.

` Rebel Mortar Attack on Aleppo Leaves Twenty One Dead and Fifty Injured as Violence Continues ‘

#AceWorldNews – DAMASCUS – April 27 – At least 21 people were killed and 50 hurt on Sunday in a rebel mortar attack on regime-held districts of the Syrian city of Aleppo, a monitoring group said.

“The fire targeted regime-held neighbourhoods, including some in the Old City where the rebels are trying to advance,” said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Aleppo is divided between government and opposition control, and clashes on the ground, rebel fire and regime aerial bombardment have all increased there in recent weeks.

Rebels hold most of the eastern side of the city, but regime troops have managed to recapture much of the outskirts surrounding those areas and have been carrying out a relentless aerial campaign across opposition parts of Aleppo province for months.
