The ending of the siege of the Kwieres Air Base.

.Both sides are reporting a major, albeit fragile victory for the Syrian Government forces and allies in the Aleppo countryside, the site of the  largest Syrian offensive conducted since the Russian intervention began.

The Kweires Air base had been surrounded and besieged since 2013, Around 3oo troops remained in what was  an island in an ISIL controlled area. Syrian Government forces have now broken the siege destroying the insurgents  positions surrounding the facility in what appears to be a major achievement.

Iranian media are reporting that the commander of the Revolutionary Guards Quds force Qasem Soleimani .is leading the assault on the ISIl forces in Eastern Aleppo. this is a clear sign that they believe the operation will succeed as the image and prestige of the commander are clearly important to them.

“Unconfirmed reports said the groundbreaking victory was gained under the leadership of Iran’s renowned Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani.”

This marks possibly the first major achievement since the Russian Iranian escalation of October.

ISIS Besiege Broken: Assad forces regain control of key airbase

In addition to that operation SAA and allied forces have also been achieving gains in South Aleppo.

Until yesterday al Hader was a major jihadist hub in South Aleppo under the control of the al Nusra front.

The Syrian Arab army and Hezbollah full control over the strategic Jabal al-Arbaain (al-Arbaain mountain) and a number of villages and farms in the southwestern countryside of Aleppo province.

SAA offensive in Hama failed.

Several of the Syrian Government offensives undertaken after the Russian air force joined the war, such as the Hama operation, have clearly failed.

Towns that were taken weeks ago have fallen back into the hands of the insurgents, most obviously Morek.

Morek is not in itself especially crucial but it is a bad sign when gains are not defended and then reversed.

al Nusra massacre in Latakia.

Meanwhile in the Western region oif Latakia, the heartland of the Syrian government support, insurgents have massacred dozens of civilians in mortar strikes.

Al Jazeera described the events.

  “at least 24 civilians were killed and 57 others injured by two rocket shells that landed in residential areas of the coastal city of Latakia, quoting local police.

The observatory put the death toll at 23 civilians, adding that at least 40 others had been injured in the attacks. The rockets landed near Teshreen University.”

Jabhat al Nusra and the other jihadists routinely conduct these punitive massacres against civilians in Government areas when they face defeat on the battlefield. It is one of their trademarks.

Syrian Air Force bombard Douma- more than a dozen civilians killed.

Like the rebels. Syrian Government forces frequently bombard positions held by the other side with scant regard for civilian deaths and injuries.

Douma targeted.

“At least 15 people were killed and more than 100 others were injured when government warplanes targeted residential areas in Douma, just outside of the capital Damascus.”

Iran Unveils Secret Underground Bases.

It has been obvious for many years that there was an intention within the War party ro bomb Iran as the ranking member of the House and Senate Armed Services Committee John McCain put it in his “cute adaptation of the Beach Boys classic “Barbara Ann”

Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran

So it was always an easy guess that Iran would build military facilities deep within the mountains that dot Iran as protection against even a major Nuclear attack

It seems that the successful nuclear deal and the Russian entrance in Syria have made Iran confident enough to display some of the defensive positions they built to survive an air attack that now seemingly will never eventuate.

IRGC-ASF Commander Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh “”Those who are happy about their options on the table should just take a look at [Iran’s] options under the table.”
The statement from the revolutionary guard commander in charge of the facility seemed almost to be taunting Israel “do not worry that you never managed to get them to attack us as the attacks had no chance of success.” or as stated  “Those who are happy about their options on the table should just take a look at [Iran’s] options under the table.”
This is some of what the Iranian State media quoted IRGC-ASF Commander Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh as saying

“IRGC-ASF Commander Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh permitted what he claimed were first ever imagery to be published of ballistic missile force bases bored into the “heart of a mountain,” stating “Those who are happy about their options on the table should just take a look at [Iran’s] options under the tableOur power and capabilities are like an iceberg that floats above water and whose tip barely shows above the clear water.”

Hajizadeh further claimed numerous such tunnels exist across the country at a depth of 500 metres.

“The Islamic republic’s long-range missile bases are stationed and ready under the high mountains in all the country’s provinces and cities,” he said, according to Sepah News.

The commander said the missiles were ready to be launched from all over Iran, on the order of “the supreme commander-in-chief,” Leader of the Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

“This is a sample of our massive missile bases,” Hajizadeh said, adding that “a new and advanced generation of long-range liquid and solid fuel missiles” would start to replace the current weapons next year.”

Iran is now heavily engaged in Iraq and Syria, the Iran Revolutionary guards are in Syria in large numbers and the Iranians are increasingly open about their presence. This shot taken from a video called Entry into Kvrenbaudh (yes I checked) appears to show a Russian adviser and two Iranian IRGC members poring over a map of Latakia. The “Russian” has European features and he is smoking, the Revolutionary Guards are easily recognisable although the younger of the two may be a member of Hezbollah.

Controlled media smells a hoax!?!

It was pretty amusing then to sit through the State Department Press Briefing of October 14 and note that some Fox News “Israeli” journalist named Justin Fishel was seemingly convinced the Iranians had Photoshopped the immense caverns full of mobile ballistic missile launchers that they have put on display as he asked the spokesman whether he had seen the photographs and knew if they were legitimate.

Fox News correspondent and heroic frined of Israel Justib Fishel smeels a hoax and he is one heck of a good judge.
Fox News correspondent and heroic frined of Israel Justin Fishel smells a hoax and he is one heck of a judge.

” I wanted to ask about this Iranian state television broadcast which purports to show an underground tunnel packed with  missiles and missile launchers  a) Do you think  this video is legitimate, and B) in other words real? and B) Do you think that you know,  it’s a provocative (move in) nature? You know they say in the broadcast ” (adopts laughable menacing tone)”this could be used if our enemies make a mistake.”

This shows how utterly rattled the Western elite are at the moment.

They have been listening to their own propaganda for so long they have no idea that the cornerstones of their world view are lies.

Still from Press Tb shows the scale of the facility.

The World has changed in six months.

The World has changed, the “AIPAC” moment at the helm of the all-powerful US empire is over.

Both elements of the equation have changed.

AIPAC’s veneer of semi invincibility within the US has been destroyed and it has also become crystal clear that the post Cold war “US moment” is over. The world appears to have simply passed them by in a matter of months and outside the bubble of the Western controlled media, their dreams are dying on a daily basis

The moment that reality begins to dawn upon them will be a moment of extreme danger.
