    Syrian Army Repels Attack on North Damascus Checkpoint - Source

    A 15-minute encounter was precipitated by two attacks – one carried out by a suicide bomber and another via an explosive device installed on a motorcycle.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — Syrian government forces repelled an attack on an army outpost in northern district of the capital Damascus, a source in the Syrian military said Monday.

    "Every member of the armed group that attempted to attack a Syrian Army checkpoint in east Ruken Al Din in Damascus has been killed," the source told RIA Novosti.

    The 15-minute encounter was precipitated by two rebel attacks – one carried out by a suicide bomber and another via an explosive device installed on a motorcycle – at the checkpoint guarding the management and logistics building.

    Militants including Nusra Front fighters, al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, captured large areas of Jisr al-Shughour town in the northwest of the country, after days of fierce battles.

    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported six casualties in the twin explosions, including a wounded senior army officer.

    The military source, however, repudiated the UK-based SOHR's report that a general in charge of the army's munitions and supply division sustained injuries.

    The Syrian army has been involved in an armed conflict with several rebel and extremist groups since March 2011 in that has claimed over 220,000 lives, according to the United Nations.

    None of the groups active in the country – including the Islamic State and the Nusra Front – has claimed responsibility for Monday's bombing attacks.

    Hey friend, one minute !
    Syria is face of the western world, and saudi tribe -for money-. At first it is not a simple war, there are highs, and lows. If terrorists captured some -empty of people- terroritories, it does not mean they are winning, and it is not the end of the world. In other side, strategic Calamoun areas are definitly lost by terrorists. Syria's army is far to be beaten, don't be pessimist. Moreover, Syria does not need russian's intervention, syrian army with its traditional allies are largely enough, like iranians, Hizbollah, most of the palestinians -it is important to underline-, and more and more free arabs cititizen are coming to help Syria in order to fight the terrorists. Russia is largely doing enough by providing syrian army what it is nesseceray.
    Ryadh, is going to undergo many many tragic problems, as its war against Yemen is turning to the disaster. Now, Yemen' army is able to penetrate deeply inside Saudi's territories. At this point, the money will lack, and the problems will start against Saudi Tribe. US are mulling to give up Ryadh in benefits to Teheran as Petraeus seems to say. Another point, Turkey is mulling to buy S-300, it means that Turkey seems to aspire to leave Nato, and to integrate OTSC. For the terrorists these are the end.

    Hence, things are far to be lost in Syria, Russia did good jobs, as Iran, as Hizbollah. Those who trusted US, will be as usual, the joke of the turkey-the fowls, or end up the laughing stocks, the suckers-. Mwahahahahaha. lol!

    The Syrians are upgraded Soviet T-55
    Until recently, the most modern tanks of the Syrian army were two hundred ordinary T-55 upgraded in Ukraine and brought up to a standard T-MW. They were installed new systems of guided weapons, fire control system "Wave" and DSHKM anti-aircraft gun.

    To increase the survivability of combat vehicles was applied anticumulative dynamic protection "Contact", side skirts and a number of other technical improvements.

    However, normal T-55 used in the Syrian army, until recently, were easy prey for the enemy. Antitank weapons pierced the armor, even where it had a maximum thickness. As a result the machine went out of order and they detonated the ammunition, killing the entire crew.

    So far the attempts of the Syrian military to improve the protection of tanks tangible results did not bring. But recently, as noted by the experts, in the fighting in the mountainous qalamoun region, the Syrians began to use T-55, past effective modernization in the field of protection. Tanks got anticumulative screens, mounted dozer blades, and installed on the towers of anti-aircraft guns closed protective guards.

    Experts say that the combat capability of these machines has increased significantly.

    Palmyra has fallen to the salafist animals. Imagine all the historical sites. Sad
    Iran should of intervened a long time ago because the syrian army is overstreched and it seems only a time before the syrian regime is done.
    Russia and Iran could of done so much more to prevent this. Being a western ally means your all always guaranteed victory being a russian ally means humiliation and defeat.

    Really?

    Because Currently Libya is enjoying its guaranteed victory like nobodies business, and Afghanistan and Iraq seem to have not enjoyed their guaranteed success and are looking to Russia for real support without interference.

    Perhaps you might want to visit the paradise that is Haiti to see the glorious benefits an alliance with the US can bring?

    So now I guess we wait for the first videos to appear of Palmyra being bulldozed and blown up. America and it's sycophants will scream and rage about this while at the same time scream about Assad and put more recources into defeating him. That they do this, and so create the conditions for barbarians like IS to thrive and destroy ancient sites will pass over their heads. Seems no limit to the hypocrisy and stupidity of Washington. But sometimes I wonder if they actually desire IS to do this destruction as, after all, America also is a country of religious fundamentalists who have no love for anything "Pagan". In August 2013, a year after el-Sisi had removed the Islamist Morsi, the Mallawi museum in middle Egypt was stormed by an Islamist mob. The security guards were killed and about 95% of all the artifacts on display were destroyed, even the mummies were burnt. At a lower level, this barbarism continues in Egypt and local site storerooms, magazines they are called, still get looted. It seems to becoming a regular occurance that mummies are found burnt or ripped to pieces and the remains dumped in sewage as a deliberate insult to the dead, who of course were not Muslim. I thought el-Sisi was meant to stop this sort of thing happening, I thought the west would make an outcry, but silence, and the spider in the region sits and smiles.

    Exactly, people that have a past always have a future, destroy the past (culture,religion, history) you destroy their future meaning you can form it how you want it. That is the reason why education and scientific fields are controlled by private lobbies and invenstors, there are fields in science that are not allowed to be studied lot of them are in history, to keep history sealed and away from people.

    You are too pessimistic.
    Syrian Army never looked good on pictures.
    The overall situation is not as bad as you think: While they have lost Palmyra and the Iraqi border, they are successfully cleaning up the border areas with Lebanon (Qalamoun mountains).

    Situation for the Syrian Army and Assad looked a lot worse two years ago.

    Not quite. Reason for the third world looking equipment has more to do with change of tactics and brining in old reserves.

    T-55's in Syria are being "upgraded" by Syrians with basic, cheap armor (which is working) and replacing the 100mm gun with something faster hitting. Majority of terrorists are running on the ground or driving jeeps, so it is easier for a tank that is slower shooting, less ammo available and older armor in getting knocked out, than something faster hitting. They gained ground in some areas and lost in others, but doesnt mean the end. They still have an airforce pounding the terrorists and a ground force still fighting strong (I see ar more modern infantry gear on Syrian army side now than I have seen prior to this conflict).

    Maybe they need to take a page from the Novorussians and start to use more artillery and drones to spot.

    Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US "Created" ISIS As A "Tool" To Overthrow Syria's President Assad


    ZeroHedge wrote:From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world's stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world's terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the "straight to beheading YouTube clip" purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria's president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe's dominant - and belligerent - source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.

    FP is right, I think.

    Syrian army is slowly disintegrating since well, 2013 when they started relying more and more on NDF, now they rely exclusively on Iran for their survival. Some estimations say there are now 80,000 foreign fighters fighting for Assad from various Shia countries - reliance on mercenaries is not a good way to win wars. Gaddafi learned that lession too late and he bites the dust now.

    I'm sure that no later than 2016 Assad will be no more.

    @Macedonian:
    You're wrong IMHO.
    ISIS has a dismal record of cooperation with other rebels. They literally can't cooperate with anyone else. The only significant way in which IS helped topple Assad is by starting the second front in Iraq and cutting the flow of Iraqi Shia militias from Iraq. Otherwise, their anti-Assad activities have been limited to sparsely populated areas of the country, in the East - Ar Raqqa, Deir Ezzor, Tadmur etc. Not in the west and south where most of the fighting takes place.

    Well we don't know exactly what American strategy is at this point...or rather if they are satisfied with things being the way they are ATM, in order to later make a push and conquer more ground, or topple Al-Assad completely.
    They are losing nothing as things stand now. Not a single American soldier was lost (as far as we know) they're fighting this war through proxy. They may well be content this thing going on and creating chaos all around.
    Besides, there were some very suspicious air-drops of weapons that "mistakenly" fell into ISIS' hands.
    Thing is - Iran lost a great deal of influence, as did Russia...at least in the areas that were under Syrian control, and are now under the control of IS/ISIL.
    Only Israel and Saudi Arabia have gained in this conflict and, by extension, so did America.

    Though, I can't really take credit for all the opinions stated in that article, found it on Zero Hedge and though I'd share it with the crowd here.
    Just another POW to throw into the mix. Very Happy
