Syrian troops push to retake Wadi Barada
Action here in December offered stubborn resistance by holding the strategically important valley, upon which they could affect the water supply of Damascus. The attacks from the south rebels fought off quite confidently. But these days the Syrians have come from the other side – kick CAA and groups “Hezbally” north of the valley, has led to the fact that the militants have lost a number of tactically important heights and their position in the western part of the Wadi Barada deteriorated. After that, they urgently requested a truce.
After the negotiations with the representatives of the Armed Forces, and the CAA “Hezbally” agreements were reached:
1. Action allow the enclave professionals of tomorrow, which will restore the infrastructure related to water supply in Damascus.
2. Foreign mercenaries, as well as members of militias, which are not covered by the ceasefire agreement (in the first place, “Al-Nusra”), should be traditionally taken in Idlib.
3. At the same time, militants from the local, be allowed to leave small arms, and they in fact will be the local police, who will maintain order in the enclave together with the CAA.
4. All heavy and medium weapons should be handed over CAA – this applies to tanks, infantry combat vehicles, howitzers, mortars, etc. ZUshek
In general, there is a traditional scheme with vyprovazhivaniem militants in Idlib and reintegration of remaining in the Syrian society in the framework of national reconciliation strategy conducted by the Syrian government. It is true there is one difference, as previously remaining on the territory of the Syrian rebels were not allowed to leave even a small arms, preferring to allow them to serve in the local police only after filtration. But it was apparently a concession in exchange for an early solution to the issue of water supply of Damascus.
Of course, the coordination procedures and the removal of the militants still take some time – on the one hand, it is reported that the removal of roadblocks militants began in the eastern enclave, on the other hand, it is reported that the Syrian engineers to obstruct the work. So the question remains to be surrender of the enclave to its logical end, but I think if the insurgents do not suddenly abandon the agreement, an enclave within a maximum of two weeks will come under the control of the CAA.
Large areas of the villages of Wadi Barada turned into rubble and destruction as a result of hundreds of air raids and waves with artillery and rockets during the ongoing campaign for 16 days in a row.
