Missing residents | Colonel Cassad

On November 30, the “local activists” said that in the militant-controlled areas of Aleppo are 300,000 civilians. After the complete liberation of the Eastern neighborhoods and check out everyone in Idlib from 1 to 16 December, it became clear that in the liberated territories was 152 000 civilians (both those who stayed and those who left with the rebels). 148 000 were dissolved in the fog of the propaganda war.
You can certainly make allowances for the fact that the victims in the fighting were civilians and some percentage may still be hiding in basements, but it is clear that in the interests of propaganda, the population of the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo had been overstated by almost 2 times, as the liberation of the city fairly quickly appeared when vacated areas, the army found where there is less people than there should be according to the statements of militants and the Western media.

Aleppo. 14.12.2016 | Colonel Cassad

Much as the West has tried to save them, these characters don’t want to be saved, apparently they only used the road in order to act like wild animals. So despite the fact that the city has been listed as taken for 2 days, in some quarters they still continued shooting. As for me, it is good that they refused to leave – they can now with a clear conscience to be sent to eternal rest and nobody will be able to say that they were not offered “humanitarian alternative”. However, the West is not going to understand such subtleties and continues to hysteria on the subject “war crimes in Aleppo”, thus striving to downplay the fact and the significance of the victory of Syria, Russia and Iran in Aleppo.

In this respect it is highly interesting to compare the flow of information propaganda and anti-Assad Syrian resources.

Today, it once again led to the collapse of the flimsy front militants.

During December 6, the militants left the old city and some quarters in the North-Eastern part of the boiler is reduced. Sand the area North from the Citadel and an eye clinic, the SAA took the offensive South of the Citadel, throwing militants further South. Resistance fighters is of a disorganized nature, unified system of defense no longer exists as a result of the losses, the surrender of insurgents and demoralization of the personnel, the collapse of organized resistance – in fact, the army overcomes patchy resistance and so easily takes significant chunks of the city. Active use of armored vehicles in street battles and the lack of serious casualties in tanks and infantry fighting vehicles, reflect a General tendency towards exhaustion of the defensive capabilities of the fighters – not enough anti-tank and other anti-tank weapons
