The Arab media affiliated to the countries supporting terrorism in the region and the West are trying hard to boost the morale of the terrorists in Syria by censuring the Syrian army’s achievements.
The media outlets of the western countries and the Persian Gulf littoral states continue their efforts to ignore the recent victories of the Syrian army across the country in a bid help the terrorists forget their major defeats throughout Syria.
In the last 24 hours, a large number of Takfiri militants were killed in fierce clashes between the Syrian army forces and armed groups on the outskirts of Homs province.
The army soldiers stormed the hideouts of the militants in the areas of Ein Hussein al-Janoubi, Talbiseh, Hilaliya and Tal Abu in Homs province, killing and injuring scores of them.
Also, the militants suffered major losses in the areas of al-Rami, Sermin, Abu al-Duhour, al-Mestriha, and Bayaet al-Sekhneh in Idlib countryside, as the army made gains in the province.
Elsewhere, the Syrian army continued to gain the upper-hand over the Takfiri groups, and managed to inflict heavy casualties on the militants in Lattakia province.
The foreign-backed militants suffered major losses in the areas of al-Hilwe, al-Rawda, Wadi Shihan, and Mazyan in Lattakia, as the army made more gains in the Northern province.
Meanwhile, a large number of the Takfiri militants were killed in the towns of Nabeh Al-Sakher and Memtana when the army intensified its attack in Quneitra.
Elsewhere, the Syrian army targeted the strongholds of the armed groups operating in Raqqa province, leaving a large number of Takfiri militants dead and injured in the province.
The army troops launched a deadly attack against the targets of the rebels in the area of al-Salat in Raqqa province, and killed a large number of them.
Also, the militants sustained heavy toll in the areas of Jana al-Olbawi, al-Belaas Mountain, Masaada, Kafr Zeta, Madaya, and al-Khelleh in Hama countryside, as the army continued to make gains across the province.
Meantime, a Turkish researcher disclosed that thousands of Turkish extremists have joined the ISIL terrorists in Syria.
“At least 12,000 Turkish nationals have joined the Takfiri terrorists in Syria to fight against the Damascus government,” Head of the Turkish Research Center 21 Century Umit Ozdaq told Taraf newspaper.
He noted that some of them have joined ISIL in Syria alone and some others with their family members.
Ozdaq also disclosed that 400 extremists from Northern Kazakhstan have joined the ISIL in Syria.
In November 2014, informed sources revealed that the Turkish Air has been transferring large groups of Takfiri terrorists from different countries to Syria and Iraq.
“The airliner transported 91 Takfiri Tajiks from Dushanbe to Istanbul at 21:10 on July 2 onboard flight 254,” a source, who asked to remain unnamed for fear of his life, told FNA at the time.
In October 2014, a Kurdish source disclosed that Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MIT) officials had held a series of meetings with the ISIL ringleaders in a Syrian border city to coordinate joint war operations against the Kurdish population.
“We have strong and irrefutable documents that the MIT has held numerous meetings with the ISIL ringleaders in a border city Northern Syria and during the meetings they have inked agreements against the Kurds,” a member of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) who introduced himself as Howal Veria told FNA.
“One of the paragraphs of the agreements pertains to the ethnic cleansing of Syria’s Kurdistan and displacement and massacre of the Kurdish people,” he added.
Veria warned Turkey to stop its continued policies against the Kurds, and said if the government of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan continues its policies, over 45mln Kurds, Alawits and all other people who are opposed to Ankara’s ISIL policies will rush to the streets to show their power to the Turkish premier.
In September 2012, a Debkafile report said that the Turkish army officers were directly commanding foreign terrorists in Northern Syria, including the cities of Idlib and Aleppo.
According to the report, militants in Idlib and Aleppo received orders from headquarters in the Southeastern Turkish city of Gaziantep.
Syria has been the scene of insurgency since 2011 when certain western powers and their regional allies voiced loudly that Syrian protests have no diplomatic solution and they started supplying the country’s opposition groups with their arms and funds.
In 2014, specially after victory of President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s presidential election, the army has gained upper hand in its anti-terrorism campaign, and has been partly successful in sealing borders with Turkey and Jordan.
