Briefly on Al-Bab. 1. February 9 militants Khilafah managed to keep the neck of the boiler and to prevent the connection of the Syrian and Turkish forces to the south-east of Bzaa. Counter north of Arana and near Bzaa slowed the advancement of the CAA and the pro-Turkish militants, allowing “black” save link groups operating in the area of Al-Bab to the main territory of the Caliphate. The neck at this stage is about 3 kilometers.
2. In this activity, “black” had its price. Throwing a serious force in the battle for Bzaa and villages north of Haran, they were forced to weaken the other portions than the Syrians and Turks were quick to take advantage. CAA overcame the militants are a number of villages to the southwest of Tadifa gradually eliminating narrow “gut” between the positions of the SSA and CAA. The contact should occur immediately south route passing between Al-Bab and Tadifom. The Turks, in turn, took over Al-Baba hospital, dominant height over the city and a piece suburbs west of the city.
3. In general, it is clear that as the tightening ring around al-Babskii groups it harder to maneuver few reserves without tactical concessions. At current trends, it will sooner or later force the remaining militants are squeezed in a few large towns, after which they will be forced to move to a passive defense. Option preparation retreat to the Defra-Hafiru, still appears to be more advantageous for them.
4. With regard to Al-Baba assault, the pro-Turkish groups say that they will storm it. Home attack directly on Al-Bab announced in the coming days. At this stage, the SSA troops concentrated on the western outskirts of Al-Bab. According to the positions of the Caliphate on the outskirts of the city applied intense artillery and air strikes. It is expected that in the second echelon offensive will act Turkish mechanized infantry and armored formations, as well as different parts of the gain. Sturm actually started yesterday, but the main work is to sweep the central districts of Al-Bab has yet to be.

“The Media Coverage On Syria Is The Biggest Media Lie Of Our Time”
Via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity, Flemish Father Daniël Maes (78) lives in Syria in the sixth-century-old Mar Yakub monastery in the city of Qara, 90 kilometers north of the capital Damascus. Father Daniel has been a witness to the “civil war” and according to him, Western reports on the conflict in Syria are very misleading. In short: “the Americans and their allies want to completely ruin the country.”
Interviewer: You are very critical of the media coverage on Syria. What is bothering you? Father Daniel: “The idea that a popular uprising took place against President Assad is completely false. I’ve been in Qara since 2010 and I have seen with my own eyes how agitators from outside Syria organized protests against the government and recruited young people. That was filmed and aired by Al Jazeera to give the impression that a rebellion was taking place. Murders were committed by foreign terrorists, against the Sunni and Christian communities, in an effort to sow religious and ethnic discord among the Syrian people. While in my experience, the Syrian people were actually very united. Before the war, this was a harmonious country: a secular state in which different religious communities lived side by side peacefully. There was hardly any poverty, education was free, and health care was good. It was only not possible to freely express your political views. But most people did not care about that.”
Interviewer: Mother Agnès-Mariam, of your Mar Yakub (“Saint Jacob”) monastery, is accused of siding with the regime. She has friends at the highest level. Father Daniel: “Mother Agnès-Mariam helps the population: she has recently opened a soup kitchen in Aleppo, where 25,000 meals are prepared five times a week. Look, it is miraculous that we are still alive. We owe that to the army of Assad’s government and to Vladimir Putin, because he decided to intervene when the rebels threatened to take power. When thousands of terrorists settled in Qara, we became afraid for our lives. They came from the Gulf States, Saudi Arabia, Europe, Turkey, Libya, there were many Chechens. They formed a foreign occupation force, all allied to al-Qaeda and other terrorists. Armed to the teeth by the West and their allies with the intention to act against us, they literally said: “This country belongs to us now.” Often, they were drugged, they fought each other, in the evening they fired randomly. We had to hide in the crypts of the monastery for a long time. When the Syrian army chased them away, everybody was happy: the Syrian citizens because they hate the foreign rebels, and we because peace had returned.”
