Assad’s forces pound rebel stronghold in Aleppo

Syrian army tanks shelled Aleppo and a helicopter gunship strafed rebel positions with heavy machinegun fire as they fought into early Monday for control of the country’s biggest city and key battleground of the 17-month uprising.

After U.N. Security Council paralysis on Syria forced peace envoy Kofi Annan to resign last week, and with his ceasefire plan a distant memory, rebels have been battered by a government onslaught in Aleppo and the capital Damascus.

The main focus of fighting in Aleppo has been the Salaheddine district, a gateway into the city of 2.5 million people, where Reuters witnessed heavy fighting.

Tanks pounded alleyways where rebels sought cover. One shell hit a building next to the Reuters reporting team, pouring rubble on to the street and sending billows of smoke and dust into the sky.

State television said Assad’s forces were “cleansing the terrorist filth” from the country, which has been sucked into an increasingly sectarian conflict that has killed about 18,000 people and could spill into neighbouring states.

In Damascus, troops backed by fighter jets have kept up an offensive against the last rebel bastion there in recent days.

Syria’s two main cities had been relatively free of violence until last month when fighters poured into them, transforming the war. The government largely repelled the assault on Damascus but has had more difficulty recapturing Aleppo.

Rebel commanders say they anticipate a major Syrian army offensive in Aleppo and one fighter said they had already had to pull back from some streets after army snipers advanced on Saturday under cover of the fierce aerial and tank bombardment.

“The Syrian army is penetrating our lines,” said Mohammad Salifi, a 35-year-old former government employee. “So we were forced to strategically retreat until the shelling ends,” he said, adding the rebels were trying to push the army back again.

Late on Sunday rebels clashed with the army in Aleppo’s south-eastern Nayrab district, a fighter who called himself Abu Jumaa said. The army responded by shelling eastern districts. There were also clashes on the southern ring road, which could be a sign the army was preparing to surround the city.

RUINS

Once a busy shopping and restaurant district where residents would spend evenings with their families, Aleppo’s Salaheddine district is now white with dust, broken concrete and rubble.

Tank shell holes gape wide on the top of buildings near the front line, and homes of families and couples have been turned into look-outs and sniper locations for rebel fighters.

Large mounds of concrete are used as barriers to close off streets. Lamp posts lie horizontally across the road after being downed by shelling.

Civilians trickle back to collect their belongings and check on their homes. Late on Saturday a confused elderly man stumbled into 15th street as rebels exchanged fire with the army.

“Get out of the way! Get off the street!” fighters shouted, grabbing him and taking him to shelter.

“I just wanted to buy some blackberry juice,” he told the fighters, his face reflecting confusion and horror at the damage to his street. Instinctively, he took his personal ID out of his chest pocket to show the rebels, a habit from the strict days of the Assad security officials.

During the day, others emerged from damaged buildings. A couple stood shaking with fear at an intersection a few metres from the fighting as a medic waved a car down to take them to safety.

“Just to hold power he is willing to destroy our streets, our homes, kill our sons,” wept Fawzia Um Ahmed, referring to Assad’s determined counter-offensive against the rebels.

“I can’t recognise these streets any more.”

The violence has elements of a proxy war between Sunni and Shi’ite Islam which could spill beyond Syrian borders.

Assad is a member of the Alawite faith, an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam that has dominated Syrian politics through more than 40 years of his family’s rule in a country that has a Sunni Muslim majority. He is supported by Shi’ite Iran and by Lebanon’s armed Shi’ite Hezbollah movement.

The Sunni-ruled Muslim Gulf Arab states have called for rebels to be armed and Turkey has provided them with a base, angering Damascus and prompting Syrian state television on Sunday to refer to the rebels as a “Turkish-Gulf militia”.

It said the bodies of Turkish and Afghan fighters had been found in Aleppo, without giving details.

On Sunday Syrian rebels claimed responsibility for capturing 48 Iranians in Syria and said they were checking their identities to show that Tehran was involved in fighting for Assad, a rebel officer said.

Iran says the captives were religious pilgrims visiting holy sites in Syria, abducted from a bus in Damascus. It has called on Turkey and Qatar to help secure their release.

In Damascus, residents said the bodies of six Palestinians arrested during a security sweep by the army in the southern Tadamon district were discovered on Sunday. Another nine men were missing, they said. Accounts from the capital could not be verified because the government restricts access.

      Three Syrian intelligence officers have defected from the Damascus
      regime and sought refuge in neighbouring Jordan, a spokesman for the
      rebel Free Syrian Army said on Sunday.

      “Colonel Yarab al-Shara, his brother Mohammed Kanaan al-Shara and
      Colonel Yasser Ali Hajj, who worked in political intelligence in
      Damascus, have defected and are in Jordan,” Kassem Saadeddine told AFP.

      Colonel Shara was head of the information department of the intelligence unit located in the capital.

      The Shara brothers are from the same clan as Syria’s Sunni Muslim vice president, Faruq al-Shara.
      The regime is falling one by one, yet I still cannot fathom what fucking god would be fucking blessing someone like ass assad, even his own are deserting him

          Here in the 21st century, your and other topics are: sunnis, shias, salafists, christians, druze and on and on. instead of going forward you are taking us aback. Live in democracy and let other live. Everyone has a right to peaceful demonstration and ask for the change in the government. That’s how it started in syria, but ass assad wants to dominate and continue to rule while the poor got poorer and he and his wife are living  it up. She is now somewhere in russia and I wonder about his leadership. He looks like a comedian in his military outfit, yet I have not seen him leading the troops. You know the basics “LEAD BY EXAMPLE” and at that rate no wonder why everyone id DEFECTING. Stay tuned.

        Although I have no problem with any of your arguments, as an areligious myself it still pains my ears hearing you say “f… God”. I just wish you wouldn’t. I understand your frustration and I am with you but channeling it with this sentence is too much to bear even for a person like myself who do not subscribe to any religion.

          Hannibal, I am sorry. But one someone uses the name of GOD to empower a ruthless butcher like ass assad, it gets to me. No god will allow such atrocities to take place, not only in syria but anywhere.
          I am sorry, This is not what I meant. the god I was referring to is the false one, the one used in vain for gain. SORRY

        Your not upset are you ya zib. Despite how upset you get with someone you should never use the lords name in vain. And you have the nerve to call me uneducated.

        As for Assad not being able to stand up to few “terrorists” last I checked which is according to the western media,  there were over 100.000 of these dogs. You need to remember that the army has not yet used its full force. However its coming, Its coming very soon.
        You claim that I’ve got my head in the sand, I’m not the one that believes all that the media tells me. The army never shot at any peaceful protestors. It was all a farce. But what do I know. If Al Jazeera and the like tells me that they did, we they must of then. Assad will not fall, The majority of the people want him in power, Especially the Christians. They know that if he falls then they are either dead or deported. But again that’s just my view. Maybe Al Jazeera can better inform me on what’s really going on in Syria,

       Syrian Prime Minister Riad Hijab has defected from President Bashar
      al-Assad’s government, to join “the revolution”, his spokesman says. Next is jaafari, he is already signs of weakness and more to come.
      It is not a good sign when your wife leaves you for another man (may be in your book…)

      NOT FROM THE FSA READ ON: Mohammad Ottari ( pictured) , who claims to be a spokesman for Syrian
      Prime Minister Riad Hijab, says the former prime minster defected with
      10 families, including his eight brothers.

     “…by Lebanon’s armed Shi’ite Hezbollah movement.”  Shouldn’t they have said “Iran’s”, and definitely not Lebanon’s??  It’s the invasive Iranian filth that is responsible for this whole thing.
