A Long and Grinding War.

The Russians initially mentioned a time frame of three to four months for this operation. The SAA initially tried to conduct a blitzkrieg style operation but the anti-tank rockets in the rebels hands made a mess of the Syria Armour so the blitzkrieg was shelved and the grinding war of the past four years resumed.

The Russian estimate of an operation that lasts three or four months is more likely to morph into an operation that lasts three or four years, at least in the absence of a political deal.

The delusion and sheer evil of the governments of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel mean that a political solution is highly unlikely. The Saudis are going to fight Iran down to the last Syrian Sunni fighter it seems.

Securing the Khannassar highway remains a key goal of the Syrian Army at this time.

Syrian rebel fighters in the outer Damascus region of Eastern Ghouta thought it would be a cute idea to kidnap a bunch of civilians and drive them around in cages as human shields. This type of thing makes me a big joke of the idea that these people are some type of liberal democrats.

An armed man who places a female civilian  in a cage in the hope that it may help him stay alive is nothing but a putrid worm begging to be put down in my opinion.

The antics of the rebel fighters have become most wearing.

Syrian rebels cage people as human shields: activists

These videos are propaganda, selected and sanitised, but they do give some idea of what is happening in Syria.

The Syrian/Hezbollah operation mirrors the operations in the Qalamoun mountain region of earlier this year.

Hezbollah seek to seize the elevated positions and control an area from there. Once the difficult hills are under their control, they use their superior firepower and surveillance ability to overlook the surrounding valleys and destroy enemy fighters as they traverse the valleys.

These tactics appear to work very well in the open areas. When towns and cities are the objective the situation is far more difficult and complicated.

This video is somewhat novel as it portrays the same battle from the viewpoint of both sides.

Regime advances with help of Russian strikes THE DAILY STAR

“The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a group that monitors the Syrian conflict, said the Syrian military and its ally Hezbollah had taken control of Tal Sukayk, a highland area in Idlib province, after fierce Russian bombing.
That brings Syrian government forces closer to insurgent-held positions along the main highway that links Syria’s principal cities. The area is held by a rebel alliance that excludes ISIS fighters.
“The coming battles are going to be ferocious, the Russians are using scorched earth policy and they are hitting the targets very accurately but this is a battle of destiny,” said Abu Hamed, the head of the military bureau of Jabhat Sham, an insurgent group that operates mainly in Hama province.”
The Syrian army made advances from the towns of Morek and Atshan in Hama province using tanks, heavy artillery and new surface-to-surface missiles, he said.
Russia said its planes had flown 64 sorties, striking 63 targets and destroying 53 fortified positions in the previous 24 hours. As in the past, it described all targets as belonging to ISIS, although most of the areas it said it had struck are not held by that group.
Syrian state television also reported that the government had captured Tal Sukayk with the help of Russian airstrikes.
The state-run SANA news agency said government forces destroyed at least 20 vehicles loaded with ammunition, and some with heavy machine guns, east of Tal Sukayk, killing the “terrorists” on board.
The Local Coordination Committees, another activist-run monitoring group, said government helicopters and suspected Russian jets struck at a third village, Tamanna, north of Atshan and Tal Sukayk. Tamanna lies on the border with Idlib.
Both the Observatory and the LCC reported intense clashes and Russian airstrikes in rural Latakia.

Iraq attacks ISIL leaders meeting and al Baghdadi convoy.

In other good news for the real anti terror coalition comprising Russia, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Hezbollah and Kurdish groups the Iraqi Air Force claim to have attacked a leaders meeting in the extremely obscure al Anbar town of Karabla (not to be confused with the important southern Iraq city of Karbala).. It is claimed that eight Senior figures in the terror group were killed in the aerial bombardment.

In addition the Iraqis also attacked the convoy of the leader of ISIL as he travelled to the meeting at around midday on Saturday the 10th of October. It was stated that the leader of the fake Caliphate was taken away by comrades in one of the vehicles that survived the air strike.

Islamic State figures killed in air strike but Abu Bakr Baghdadi not believed among them – Telegraph

It is extremely likely that the leadership of ISIL were the subject of a stand down by the US military enabling them to stay in Syria at little risk but the Russian campaign forced them into Iraq where they eere able to be targeted by the Iraqis.

Iraq is going to have big problems in the medium to long term regardless of the status of the leadership of the fake Caliphate.

The Sunni extremists are not the only criminals in Iraq. It is understood that the Shia milita groups there unlike almost all their allies, are genuinely sectarian and they commit crimes against the Sunni population of Iraq in response to the crimes of Sunni extremists.

The city of Tikrit was liberated from the IS group in April by Shia militia groups. Tikrit used to be a city of 200,000 people yet months after the eviction of the IS remains a ghost town. The civilians who fled the fighting have not returned and that is a big problem that points to the bigger problem of the psychological destruction of the Iraqi state during the US Military occupation.

The sectarianism of the Shia militia forces in Iraq and elements of the Iraq Government represents a huge legitimacy problem for the anti terror coalition.
