These days you have to be skeptical of every piece of information that you come across, especially if it comes from a mainstream Western news source. Of course, foreign news outlets aren’t immune from fudging the truth either. At the end of the day, everyone has an agenda, and you have to trust your gut until multiple sources come to the same conclusion. And when it comes to the war in Syria, nobody is completely innocent, so we have to take everything with a grain of salt until all the facts are in.
With that said, we’re not going to get anywhere near the truth with the Western media until the truth becomes undeniable. If we want to get an idea of what’s happening on the ground in Syria right now, and how effective the Russian airstrikes have really been, we have turn to foreign news sources.
So far the earliest reports are coming out of the Iranian news website known as Farsnews. If their reports are anywhere near the truth, then the Syrian insurgency is on the ropes.
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army’s special forces attacked ISIL’s positions in Deir Ezzur overnight, and regained control of several terrorists’ checkpoints in an area of 130 kilometers.
The Syrian elite forces seized four concentration centers of the ISIL in a surprise attack near Deir Ezzur airport.
The ISIL terrorists have tried to take control of areas in Deir Ezzur province over the past month, but they have failed due to the resistance of the Syrian army and popular forces.
On Monday, the Syrian air force hit ISIL positions and movements in the Eastern countryside of Deir Ezzur.
Of course, it’s not all rosy news for the Syrian Army. In some cases, their victories have come at a heavy cost.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Military sources in Quneitra informed on Tuesday that the Syrian army and the Lebanese Hezbollah have taken a heavy toll from the terrorist groups and recaptured Tal-Ahmar hill in a major joint offensive in the Southwestern province.
The sources said that the Syrian soldiers stormed the positions of the militant groups in the nearby areas of Tal-Ahmar and retook full control over this strategic hilltop.
The sources further added that scores of the militant groups’ members were killed or wounded in the Tal-Ahmar liberation operation. Tal-Ahmar went under militants’ control only two days ago.
Now compare those stories with what Reuters is saying.
The Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia took part in the fighting, according to a regional source who is familiar with the military situation in Syria.
Abdulrahman said later there was no sign that Syrian troops and their allies had made any tangible advances on the ground.
They briefly entered one town, but were forced to pull back, he said, and around 15 of their tanks or armored vehicles had been either destroyed or disabled.
See what I mean? We have two totally different perspectives clashing here, but only one of them can be correct. Or at the very least, the truth must be somewhere in between.
In addition to these stories, emerging reports have suggested that the resistance movements in Syria are crumbling. So far over a thousand militants have surrendered to the authorities according to Syrian sources. And according to the Russians, an additional three thousand militantshave fled to Jordan. They’re afraid that the Syrian Army has regained its momentum, and they’re trying to get the hell out of dodge.
We won’t really know what’s happening in Syria until a few weeks have passed, but if any of these recent reports are true, then it’s safe to say that those Russian airstrikes really worked. Since it took the United States Military over a year to make exactly zero progress in Syria, we know that Washington is about to get a lot of egg on its face.
If the tide turns against ISIS after only a handful of Russian airstrikes, then there will be no doubt among the nations of the world, that the United States Government is the greatest terrorist enabler of our times.
