Good News All Over For The Free World And Bad News For USA's Terror Armies. 

Cheetah Forces Lift the Three Year Long Siege of the Kuweires Military Airbase
One month ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” (Tiger Forces branch) began their arduous journey across the Deir Hafer Plains to lift the three year long siege imposed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the Kuweires Military Airport in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Cheetah Forces elite “Team 6 Brigade” – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – broke-through ISIS’ final line of defense at the east Kuweires village and military housing in order to liberate the remaining area and lift this brutal three year long siege.
Over 300 soldiers trapped at the Kuweires Military Airport were greeted by the military personnel from the Cheetah Forces after they liberated east Kuweires village and the military housing; this jubilant event marked the conclusion of this saga.
According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army, the total number of casualties for the Syrian Armed Forces from this Kuweires Military Airport offensive was 57 soldiers, with another 200+ wounded-in-action (WIA) – ISIS’ casualties could not be verified, but it is likely much higher than the Syrian Armed Forces’ death toll.
With the liberation of the Kuweires Military Airport in the Deir Hafer Plains, the Cheetah Forces will be redeployed to the northern Hama front, where they are expected to help forestall the enemy advance and recapture the territory lost to the Islamist rebels.

Islamist Rebel Offensive in Northern Hama Stalls as the Syrian Armed Forces Recover Several Points


Two days after announcing the start of their large-scale offensive in the Al-Sqaylabiyah countryside, the Islamist rebel factions that make-up the “Kafr Naboudeh Operations Room” (10 rebel groups from Hama and Idlib) hit a rough patch at this front in northern Hama as the Syrian Armed Forces recovered several points that were captured by Ajnad Al-Sham and their allies on Sunday.

According to a military source from Al-Sqaylabiyah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) from the aforementioned city – in coordination with the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – forestalled the Islamist rebel advance and then followed this up with an assault of their own; this counter-assault resulted in the Syrian Armed Forces recapturing the strategic hilltop of Tal Al-Sakhr and the Grain Silos.

Following this successful counter-assault, the Syrian Armed Forces were able secure the imperative village of Al-Mughayr after the Islamist rebels imposed full control over this site the day before; this aforementioned village is located directly south of Kafr Naboudeh and just east of Tal Al-Sakhr.

With all three of these sites safely secured on Tuesday afternoon, the National Defense Forces and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party have successfully repelled the first wave of this Islamist rebel offensive in the Al-Sqaylabiyah countryside.

However, these setbacks will not stop the Kafr Naboudeh Operations Room from concocting another contingency to launch a new offensive in the Al-Sqaylabiyah countryside; in addition to this, they still control the sites captured after they took control of the strategic town of Morek.

Iran Summons Saudi Diplomat After 3 Nationals Were Executed

President al-Assad told the airport Commander that “You have fought, withstood and you were a good example for heroism, courage and a brilliant image in the history of the Army’s heroism.”

Just In Time
General Zahreddine Arrives Just-in Time to Repel the ISIS Offensive at Deir Ezzor

The Islamic State off Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a decisive offensive at the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, where they attempted to capture the strategic Military Airport and a number of residential quarters that are currently under the control of the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Brigade of the 17th Division.
When the offensive began, Brigadier General Issam Zahreddine and his soldiers from the 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard had departed the province and made their way to Syria’s capital, where they were going to be concentrated until the rural area known as the “East Ghouta” in the Rif Dimashq Governorate was captured.
Upon receiving orders of their transfer back to the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the 104th Brigade was to report to General Mohammad Khaddour of the SAA’s Central Command and begin preparations for a counter-assault on the enemy combatants from ISIS that were storming the Syrian Armed Forces in the province.
Brigadier General Issam Zahreddine and his men from the 104th Brigade returned to the province of Deir Ezzor on Thursday morning and immediately prepared for the imminent ISIS assault on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport; this ISIS attack on the airport would not come until dusk on Thursday, as they tried to break-through the SAA’s frontline defenses at the eastern perimeter of the base.
With the SAA in firm position to repel the assault on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, the 104th Brigade concentrated a number of their soldiers to the Sakr Island front, where ISIS combatants had tried to capture over the last six days.
Firefights are still ongoing at between the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS at Sakr Island; however, the former has been able to retake some of their lost territory over the course of 48 hours and they reentered the Al-‘Aleesh District in the northern part of the Island.
In addition to the fierce clashes at Sakr Island and Deir Ezzor Military Airport, a military source from the 104th Brigade has reported a number of firefights at the Al-Jubeileh, Al-Rashidiyah, Al-‘Arfa, Sheikh Yasseen, Al-Kanamat, and Al-Sina’a Quarters, along with violent fighting at the villages of ‘Ayyash, Al-Muri’iyah, Al-Jafra, and Al-Shoula.

Lebanese Army Arrests One National and Two Syrians for Belonging to Terrorist Groups
A Lebanese army unit Tuesday arrested in Akkar’s Fnaideq citizens Mohammad Abdo Taleb, as well as Syrians Mohammad Abdul Halim Trad and Hussein Khaled Othman in Arsal, for belonging to terrorist organizations, and for involvement in battles against the Lebanese army in Arsal, a communiqué by the army indicated.
On November 5 and 6, the General Security apprehended two Lebanese for connections to terrorist groups, a communiqué by the General Security agency indicated on Tuesday.
In details, the first man was handed over to justice by his father. He admitted connection to Abdullah Azzam Brigades, and communication with its leader, terrorist Sirajeddine Zreiqat.
He has also formed, alongside the second arrested and others, a subversive terrorist cell tasked with observing the international highway and movements of the Lebanese army and security convoys.
Moreover, he possessed explosives which he used in booby-trapping oil tanks, and admitted prior knowledge of the explosion executed by a Syrian terrorist on October 5, in Chtaura.

ISIS Suffers Their Biggest Setback in Syria; Jabal Al-Sha’ar Captured by the SAA
The 18th Tank Brigade of the Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd Infantry Division, backed by the National Defense Forces and Liwaa Al-Qalb Al-Suqour Sahra’a (Syrian Arab Army Special Forces), have captured the remaining gas fields of Jabal Al-Sha’ar (Poet Mountains) in east Homs. This marks the 2nd time in 4 months that this mountain area in the Homs Governorate has been recaptured by SAA and their allies.
The operation that led to the capture of Jabal Al-Sha’ar was under the command of Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan of the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – he would leave his position in Hama to his second-in-command, Captain Lu’ayy Sleitan. Col. Al-Hassan’s presence gave the embattled soldiers a boost in morale, as he arrived with the rarely used, Al-Qalb Al-Suqour Sahra’a Brigades – they are known for their desert camouflage uniforms.
In 2 days, the SAA took control of the imperative Hayyan Gas Fields; Oil Well 802; Wells 101, 102, 103, and 104; Khirbet Al-Tiyaas; and the villages of Jarrah and Hujjar. As a result of this operation, the SAA has secured the vital supply route on Palmyra-Homs Road that leads to the soldiers fighting in the Deir Ezzor Governorate. The loss of Jabal Al-Sha’ar for ISIS is the biggest setback they have faced in this conflict, due to the overwhelming number of fighters they lost and the failure to end the SAA’s presence in the deserts of east Homs.

Syrian Army on the Verge of Recapturing the Homs-Damascus Highway and the Strategic Marj Al-Sultan Airbase
The Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Damascus City and the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – continued their large-scale counter-offensive in the East Ghouta (collection of farms) region of rural Damascus, targeting several sites along the strategic Homs-Damascus Highway that flows through the Syrian capital.
On Tuesday morning, the Republican Guard and their allies struck the Islamist rebels from Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) at the Sherri Checkpoint, where they overran the latter’s defensive positions to impose full control over this site at the southern perimeter of the Homs-Damascus Highway in Douma.
In addition to the capture of the Sherri Checkpoint, the Republican Guard and their allies secured several small hilltops that are located along the southern perimeter of the Homs-Damascus Highway, leaving only a little parcel of territory under the control of the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam at the village of Tal Kurdi.
Meanwhile, at the Marj Al-Sultan front in southern Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies imposed full control over the village of Nawleh after a series of intense firefights with Jaysh Al-Islam and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” near the strategic Marj Al-Sultan Military Airbase.
With Nawleh under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces are in control of 80 percent of the Marj Al-Sultan Military Airbase’s southern countryside, leaving only the base compounds and the village under the control of the Islamist rebel groups.

Syrian Army and Hezbollah Flank the Rebel Stronghold of Al-Hadher in Southern Aleppo
The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Armored Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Battalions), and several Iranian and Iraqi paramilitary units – recaptured the imperative villages of Talaylat and ‘Aziziyah after a series of intense firefights with the Islamist rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham on Monday morning.
Following the recapture of Talaylat and ‘Aziziyah, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance entered the rebel stronghold of Al-Hadher with very little resistance from the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, who later appeared to combat the pro-government forces as they attempted to press deeper in the southern district of this southern Aleppo city.
With the Syrian Armed Forces and the Lebanese Resistance inside the rebel stronghold of Al-Hadher, several Islamist fighters from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” arrived to help out their embattled comrades push back the pro-government forces before they advance any further into this rebel stronghold.
If the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Division and Hezbollah can take control of Al-Hadher from the Islamist rebel fighters, they will be in position to obstruct the strategic Damascus-Aleppo Highway that leads from the provincial capital of Aleppo to the provincial capital of Idlib; this is considered one of the main supply routes for the Islamist rebels in the aforementioned provinces.
Helping the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance along the southern Aleppo front are the Iraqi and Iranian paramilitary units; these groups are made up of Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi), Liwaa Abu Fadl Al-Abbas (Iraqi), Kataeb Hezbollah (Iraqi), and Firqa Al-Fatayyemoun (Iranian/Afghani).

Russian Helicopters Lead the Way in the Al-Ghaab Plains: Syrian Army Enters Al-Bahsa
The Russian Air Force’s participation in the Syrian Arab Army’s new offensive inside the Al-Ghaab Plains has paid dividends for the latter, as they have successfully reentered Al-Bahsa , while also recapturing 4 out of 5 hills in Jubb Al-Ahmar; these aforementioned areas were captured by the Islamist rebels of “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) during their offensive in August.
On Thursday morning, the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Helicopter Gunships could be seen above the advancing Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) soldiers inside the Al-Ghaab Plains of the Hama Governorate; this marked the first time that the Syrian Arab Army’s ground units and the Russian Air Force have coordinated an assault together against the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh.
Following the intense aerial assault from the Russian Air Force, the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces broke-through the frontlines of Liwaa Suqour Al-Ghaab (Al-Ghaab Hawks Brigade) and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at Al-Bahra, resulting in the Syrian Armed Forces taking control of the southern sector of this imperative town.
In addition to their success at Al-Bahsa, the Syrian Armed Forces -in coordination with the Russian Air Force – recaptured 4 out of the 5 hills at the strategic hilltop of Jubb Al-Ahmar in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside after fierce clashes with Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Liwaa Suqour Al-Ghaab.
The primary objective of this offensive appears to be the eventual recapture of Al-Sirmaniyah; this city is vitally located to the south of Jisr Al-Shughour in the Idlib Governorate.

Syrian and Russian Air Forces Coordinate Airstrikes for the First Time

For the first time during this Syrian War, the Syrian and Russian Air Forces have coordinated airstrikes together against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Jabhat Al-Shamiyah, and Harakat Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki inside the Aleppo Governorate.
According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) and their counterparts from the Russian Air Force launched a half dozen airstrikes each, attacking the Islamist rebels and ISIS at the Deir Hafer Plains and the cities of Al-Atareb, ‘Anadan, Gharb Al-Mansoura, and Al-Bab.
The Syrian military source added that the Syrian Air Force concentrated on the west Aleppo front (Gharb Al-Mansoura, ‘Anadan, and Al-Atareb), while their Russian counterparts attacked the eastern front (Al-Bab and the Deir Hafer Plains); this proved effective for both air forces, as it allowed them both the time to zero-in on a specific target inside this northern Syrian province.
This recent coordination in the Aleppo Governorate was likely due to the fact that the Russian Air Force has concentrated many of their fighter jets at the Al-Ghaab Plains in the Hama Governorate.

With a little over 30 fighter jets inside Syria, the Russian Air Force has to allocate their aerial assets appropriately because they are currently limited by their need to spread out the airstrikes.
