Anti-Terrorist Operation Begun to Liberate Aleppo

Anti-Terrorism Operation Begun to Liberate Aleppo 

by Stephen Lendman

A major campaign to liberate parts of Aleppo still held by US supported terrorists began, a Syrian military source saying: 

“The Syrian army has deployed 10,000 soldiers in Aleppo front to begin a large-scale military operation (aided by Russian air power) to push the Takfiris back from the remaining villages which are under the terrorists' control.”

“The Syrian army began the operation to recapture more regions in the Northern suburb of Aleppo on Thursday and pushed the al-Nusra terrorist to evacuate Mallah farms and retreat Eastward after heavy clashes which ended in significant casualties on the terrorist group.”

Another key supply route to southern Aleppo province was severed, according to Syria’s military, a statement saying:

“(T)he terrorists are now without a much-needed supply route to the Al-Ramouseh Industrial Zone.”

“The achievement by the Syrian Army means a serious problem for the al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army in near future.”

“The terrorists will now have to use rural and secondary roads to deliver their supplies to Ramouseh Industrial Zone, if they are up to keep their presence there.”

Russian and Syrian military officials are coordinating efforts to liberate the city entirely - as soon as possible, according to military sources.

Aleppo was Syria’s largest city pre-war, its commercial hub. Much of lies in ruins. Many thousands of its residents fled.

Freeing the city and surrounding areas of US-backed terrorists is key to liberating Syria entirely.

Washington wants it prevented - with greater support for death squad killers than already, increased numbers of US special forces aiding them, maybe aerial attacks on Syrian positions coming.

Obama talks peace while escalating war, blaming Assad for America’s rape of another nonbelligerent country. 

Sham peace talks conceal reality on the ground, victims consistently blamed for the high crimes of imperial aggressors.

I’ve stressed repeatedly in previous articles that only a military solution can work, diplomacy going nowhere because Obama remains determined to oust Assad. 

Naked aggression is his key strategy of choice, one country after another raped and destroyed. Endless conflicts rage. 

Nothing in prospect suggests hope for peace. Not in Syria or other US war theaters, especially if Hillary Clinton succeeds Obama.

She’s the most ruthlessly dangerous presidential aspirant in US history, the greatest threat to world peace.
