While there is ongoing heavy fighting. “Green” is now negotiating with the Kurds, to those missed the remains of the garrison and the inhabitants of the city through its territory to azaz (with arms), and in return promise to deliver the Mari to the Kurds, who then have to deal with the onset of “black” on their own, in the calculation, except that on the support of American aviation, as it is obvious that the artillery support from Turkey can not be counted on by the Kurds.

After his death, Genghis Khan came to be venerated by the Mongols as the “Mongolian avatar” and a manifestation of the Tengri, the heavenly principle. The cult of Genghis Khan, established by his grandson Kublai Khan (the founder of the Yuan dynasty) in particular emphasized the sacred role of Genghis Khan’s two sacred banners called the “black sulde” and “white sulde” respectively, termed in Mongolian the hara-sulde and tsagan-sulde. In Mongolian, sulde means “soul” or “spirit.” These banners were considered to be symbols of the two aspects of the Mongolian avatar” in its super-temporal and superhuman quality. This symbolism of black and white remains the paradigm of the sacred Hyperborean formula.
Meanwhile, pro-government sources distribute controversial reports that the SAA is preparing the so-called “major offensives” in both Aleppo and Homs provinces. According to reports, the advance in Homs is expected in the direction of the town of Arak with an additional strike on T-3 Pumping Station. The strategic goal is to liberate Deir Ezzor. In Aleppo, SAA units allegedly deployed to the villages of Rityan and Al-Zahra, aiming to drive back Al-Nusra from Anadan Plains. Simultaneous major operations in the both provinces are hardly possible.
