Unconfirmed Video by Militants Shows Use of Poison Gas against Syrian Army, People in Aleppo

TEHRAN (FNA)- The US and Turkish backed militants fighting against Syrian President Bashar Assad released a video showing them targeting certain locations and residential areas in Aleppo with poisonous gas shells fired by mortar launchers.

The video by the US-backed Fath Halab (Aleppo Conquest) militants shows them firing rockets equipped with a capsule containing poisonous gas at people’s houses and the destroyed buildings where the Syrian army is stationed.

On Friday, the Syrian army and its allies won control over a strategic village near the recently-captured Kuweires military airbase in Aleppo province.

The Syrian Army’s elite special operations division known as the “Tiger Forces”, backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), gained full control over the village of Nasrallah after a violent heavy clashes with the ISIL terrorists on the Northern outskirts of the Kuweires airbase.

The Syrian armed forces purged the entire area surrounding of the ICARDA Farms, an informed source said, adding that this paved the way for the pro-government forces to liberate the village of Nasrallah from the control of the ISIL terrorists on Friday evening.

After the capture of Nasrallah village, the Tiger Forces and their allies are now in a position to cross into the Al-Baab Plains, after a three-year absence from this front in the Eastern countryside of Aleppo, which is deeply entrenched with ISIL terrorists as their strongholds of Menbaj and Al-Baab are located in this region.

The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces and their allies are currently fighting ISIL at the strategic hilltop village of Tal Al-Ahmar, South of the Kuweires Military Airport; if captured, the airbase will be completely secure at its Southern perimeter.

In November, the Syrian army, popular forces and Hezbollah forces, backed up by Syrian and Russian air force, lifted the two and a half-year-long siege of Kuweires military airbase after killing hundreds of ISIL terrorists.





Harmless Israeli Airstrike over Damascus Confirmed, attempt to get Syria to Use Secret S300 Capability
Israeli Airstrikes over Damascus Confirmed

TEHRAN (FNA)- A Syrian military source said the Israeli Air Force violated the Syrian airspace on Thursday and struck the 155th Brigade’s Headquarters.

Al-Masdar quotes a military source from the Syrian Air Defense as saying that the Israeli Air Force did indeed violate Syrian airspace on Thursday to strike the 155th Brigade’s Headquarters (also known as the “Missile Base”) for the second time this year and the third time in two years.

According to the military source, the Israeli warplane struck the 155th Brigade’s Headquarters in the Northern Damascus countryside on Thursday evening; this abrupt airstrike did very little damage as it hit an abandoned warehouse outside of the base’s main command center, the website reported.

The source further added that this deliberate attack and violation of Syrian airspace was likely to provoke an aggressive response from the Syrian Air Defense in order for the Israeli Intelligence apparatus to confirm whether or not the Syrian Government now possesses the Russian manufactured S-300 anti-aircraft missile.

Earlier this week, Al-Rai News’ Chief Correspondent, Elijah Magnier, said the Syrian and Iranian Governments were officially in possession of the S-300 missiles, and this would likely agitate the Israeli government.

The military source from the Syrian Air Defense was unable to comment on the reported delivery of the S-300 missiles.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A growing number of militants are giving up fight against the Damascus government as the Syrian army is advancing in multiple front across the country.

Some 200 wanted militants from Zabadani region and Madaya in Damascus province turned themselves in to the authorities on Saturday.

“The Syrian government has vowed to pardon all those who lay down arms voluntarily and it has remained loyal to its pledge so far, and this has encouraged us to give up fight, specially considering that the government troops, National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah who also enjoy the air backup of the Syrian and Russian air forces has gained momentum in its battlefield victories,” one of those who surrendered in Damascus today said.

Until last year, most surrendering cases happened in Homs and Damascus provinces, but now a growing number of militants lay down arms across the country.

Late in November, sources said some 159 wanted militants turned themselves in to the authorities as the army continues to purge almost the entire coastal province of Lattakia of terrorist groups.

The sources said that the recent victories of the Syrian army and National Defense Forces (NDF), with the back up of the Russia fighter jets, have caused too many Takfiri terrorists to lay down their guns and apply for government pardoning in Lattakia province.

On Nov 11, some 69 wanted militants turned themselves in to the Syrian authorities in the Northern Province of Aleppo as the army defeated the ISIL terrorists who had laid siege on Kuweires Airbase for 2.5 years and still continues to gain more territories in the province.

Some 119 wanted terrorists from Homs province surrendered to the government as the terrorist groups are retreating from several areas across the country.

60 others from the provinces of Damascus, Quneitra and Homs also laid down arms and turned themselves in to the Syrian authorities on Nov 7.

On Oct 28, 49 wanted persons from Damascus, Damascus Countryside, Quneitra, and Hama also surrendered.

On Nov 1, at least 184 terrorists have laid down arms and surrendered to the Syrian authorities in Damascus, Aleppo and Deir Ezzur provinces, local sources said.

Following the Syrian-Russian joint operations, thousands of Takfiri terrorists have also fled Syria to Jordan, Turkey and Europe.
