Syria launches comprehensive assault on Daraa. Quneitra under threat next

The Syrian army on Monday, June 25, launched an all-out assault on Daraa – a symbolic operation since it was there that the seven-year anti-Assad war first erupted.  The Syrian army’s 4th Division’s guns and its Tigers Forces’ tanks pounded the town with heavy artillery and Golan 1000 missiles, each of which carries a 500kg explosive warhead. The mobile Golan 1000 system mounted on Russian T-72 tanks proved its lethal properties in the recent battles for eastern Damascus. There is no way the Syrian rebel groups defending Daraa can withstand the fury of this assault, especially when it is boosted by carpet bombing inflicted by Syrian and Russian air forces.

According to some sources close to the scene, the rebels tried early Monday to mount a counter-attack on the Syrian army and were repelled with heavy casualties. Rebel chiefs in the Daraa region are still putting a brave face on their predicament and pledging to fight to the end and never surrender They refuse to be discouraged by the US embassy’s message from its Amman embassy on Sunday warning the South Syrian rebels not to expect US intervention on their behalf.

The immediate objective of the Syrian assault appears to be a group of tall buildings in the Al Balad district of Daraa, from which to gain elevation for commanding the rest of the city and so cutting short the battle for its conquest.

Like the United States, Israel too appears to have decided to stand aside and let the Syrian army finish its offensive for the capture of Daraa up to the Jordanian border. However, DEBKAfile’s military analysts maintain that this is a serious strategic error. Israel’s strategists must be fully aware that, after Daraa, the Syrian army will soon go for Quneitra and knock over rebel-held positions opposite Israel’s Golan border within view of IDF defense lines.

Israel’s policy-makers are also fully apprised of the trick of disguising the Hizballah and pro-Iranian Shiite militias spearheading the Syrian offensive in Syrian army uniforms. Therefore, notwithstanding American and Russian promises to prevent this happening, Israel will soon find itself facing Hizballah and pro-Iranian forces sitting on its northern border.

      Charles Krauthammer offered some encouraging words for Obama, he wrote at the time, has “an affecting personal history.” More importantly, he had something in common with another once-popular presidential aspirant, Colin Powell; both, it turned out, were black. “Race is only one element in their popularity,” Krauthammer noted…“but an important one. A historic one. Like many Americans, I long to see an African-American ascend to the presidency. ..’

      Less than two years later, Krauthammer was expressing disgust with those who would make the case for Obama’s candidacy in terms of his identity, rather than his policies. “The pillars of American liberalism—the Democratic Party, the universities and the mass media—are obsessed with biological markers, most particularly race and gender,” he helpfully explained, adding that the 2008 Democratic primary represented “the full flowering of identity politics. It’s not a pretty picture.”

        @Liam,

        The territory adjacent to Israel’s Golan has been mostly controlled by anti-Assad rebels who are not part of ISIS (yes———there are rebels who fall into that category).
        It would be a good idea to get all of the facts before posting next time.

    a year or two from now or maybe less , when the Iranians and Hezbollah launches a surprise attack from the lebanese nothern border and the syrian northeast border, the Israelis will sit there crying and blaming trump and the Russians on how they let this happen.

    As much as i hate to say it , the Israelis are too much of a cowards to take the righteous initiative , they just sit there, point fingers at Putin,Iran,Hezbollah ,call them names but thats that … nothing concrete

      I understand Iran now has 1 less cargo plane from which to supply Syria, Hezbollah and the Shiite mercenaries with weapons. Would you like to retract your comment now that the latest “facts on the ground” at Damascus Military Airport have been revealed?

    But God gave back to people of Israel to add to The Land of sovereign territory the real tall and high Golan Heights. It was a with the occasion of the 6 Days Miracle. And God saw that it was good and He took pleasure in it.

    When brutal Muslim killers fight other brutal Muslim killers I call that a good day. Once they have had their fill it will be time to make sure that the invaders/occupiers/terrorists are pushed away from Israeli borders. Syria is no longer a country, it is merely rubble with invading armies defending a pile of shit made bloody by the Islamic tendency to kill everyone in its path of destruction. Russia seems to want to be part of the modern bloody Islamic conquest but they too will suffer from such bad, costly, insane anti-civilization decisions.

Without contributing a single positive thinng to the humanity. How can anybody dare blame the muslims for simply wanting to follow their made up religion.

            LOL. They worship the god of fortresses. The heart of their greatest fortress is the ‘pentagon’. As warfare moves on, many fortresses have been abandoned, but the greatest remain, Britain, America, Australia, New Zealand. Invested in these is the wealth of Temple.

            He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. 38 But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. 39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. (Daniel 11:36-39)

            His point is that these nations were set up as a sort of national strawman, with the rationale that this sort of nationality can be easily discredited and divided. Of course empire is the perennial enemy of Zionist nationalist, and the creation of small nation states, based along ethnic division, like Greece, favors their position.

            @jam….wrong, the name Sate of Israel was created by the UN, not Israel itself. Israel was the progenitor of the twelve tribes who became a kingdom and ruled the area of Judea and Samaria since 1200BC. King David legally purchased the ancient area of Jerusalem and the Israelites have been the legal owners of Jerusalem ever since. The modern Sate of Israel is an example of a society and culture that can prosper in the midst of depravity. The nations surrounding Israel should look to them as an example and strive to mimic them and trade with them, but the leadership of the neighboring nations do not have the most basic of human morals, and unfortunately the masses have not done enough to stand up for themselves. Israel will prosper and be a blessing to those who want to prosper and trade in peace too, but to those who want to keep on the path of ancient barbarians, I predict Israel will soon crush them like worms.

We hold our heads high because we are builders and repairers – you hold your heads high when you engage in terrorism, genocide, antisemitism, stoning rape, forcible conversions, conquest, invasion and anarchy.

        Too late.

        Until 1923 the Golan was part of Palestine, designated to be part of the homeland of the Jewish people according to international law.

        In 1923 the Golan was traded – Syria got the Golan and Iraq got Mosul (google it if you can…)

        Nobody (as usual) asked the people in Palestine what they think of this deal between England and France.

        This mistake was corrected by Israel in 1967

        You should ask for Mosul back

    Daraa is much different than Quneitra. The IDF concept of operations most likely did not include initiation based upon the move on Daraa. It is Quneitra that is the flash point. Just prior to any true advancement towards that location will lead to an act that is a clear warning of what may come. There will be no Russian air support for Quneitra. The support for Daraa was to show the Russians were not abandoning their puppet. Quneitra is a very different event, if it comes.

    What did Russia do for Serbia when Serbia needed help? Nothing. When NATO attacked Serbia, Russia did nothing. When the Kosovo liberation army killed the Serbs and destroyed their ancient Serb Orthodox churches, Russia did nothing. Now Russia is helping evil Assad and Iran in Syria. It is an image of hypocrisy. Slavic Russia knows how to show hostility to Slavic countries such as Ukraine and Poland, while Russia supports terrorists such as Assad, Iran and Hezbollah in Syria.

    Very low cost and very accurate hypersonic ground to air and and ground to ground missiles, mini-projectiles, and far faster particle beams will destroy 100% of all opposition aircraft, missiles, tanks, and artillery, simply being matter of many $1.00 weapons overwhelming a limited number of $100 weapons basis mass times velocity penetrating and destroying any upon earth or airborne object.

    Simply meaning that utilizing Syrian and Russian weapons systems will be tantamount to fiscal bankruptcy.

    In da Bginnin God cre8d da heavens & da earth.
    Da earth waz barren, wit no 4m of life; it waz unda a roaring ocean cuvred wit dRkness.
    First off, nothing.
    No light, no time, no substance, no matter.
    Second off, God starts it all off and WHAP!
    Stuff everywhere!
    Out of the blue God knocked up the whole bang lot…. God said ‘let’s have some light’ and bingo, light appeared!
    And the herb, dude, the herbs!
    But, in the Garden of Eden the serpent was one bad dude.
    Little later there was this sheila who came across a snake-in-the-grass with all the cunning of a con man. The snake asked her why she didn’t just grab lunch off the tree in her garden.
    God, she said, had told her she’d be dead meat if her fruit salad came from that tree, but the snake told her she wouldn’t die.
    So she took a good squiz and then a bite and passed the fruit on to her bloke.
    Later on, Cain wasted Abel and Noah was one cool brother.
    After some more politics, God’s toddler came, went in a coma, but recovered.

    Wow, Israel is abandoning its proxy army at the time of collapse. So disappointing! What happen to those fake air assaults which destroyed all Iranian assets. You know it is not Syrian army and it is actually Iranian army coming toward your borders. Syrian youths are in Europe

      Nope, looks like Persia people betraying Hamas……Iran: Protesters Chant ‘Death to Palestine’ in Tehran’s Grand Bazaar! Thousands of Iranians reportedly took to Tehran’s historic Grand Bazaar on Monday, forcing its shutdown in protest over the Islamic Republic’s decision to spend money on Iran’s adventurism abroad instead of helping fuel its troubled economy at home, where over 40 percent of its population is unemployed.

      As stated, Persia needs to return to a form of government not prop up a Corrupt Theocracy Exporting Funds Chaos and Death on Other Nations. The Persia Nation return to being Civilized with the entire Middle East would expand in wealth, trade, and philosophies not seen since King Cyrus!

    For those with early onset Alzheimer’s …
    Israel faced real armies in 1948
    1956
    1967
    1973
    And dealt with the trash ever after.
    Geez, maybe you have a new condition
    Youngheimers disease
