Meeting to enhance local reconciliations held in Homs province

Homs, SANA- A national meeting was held at Tal Ahmar village in the eastern countryside of Homs province with the participation of elderly men from 50 villages.

The meeting is just another move forward towards enhancing local reconciliations and expanding its geographical dimensions to include all Syria which would contribute to reaching a Syrian-Syrian solution to current crisis.

Attending the meeting, Interior Minister Mohammad al-Sha’ar stressed the Syrian leadership’s keenness on providing support to local reconciliation initiatives taking place throughout the country in parallel with its efforts to confront terrorism, highlighting the significance of such meeting since it brings together all spectrums of Syrian people.


In turn, Homs Governor Talal al-Barazi said this is the 26th meeting to be held during the last three years, noting that the official, popular and Russian participation has given this event more particularity.

For his part, Head of Hmeimim-based Russian Coordination Center, Sergei Schwarkov stressed the importance of this meeting which aims at unifying the Syrian people, reiterating his country’s firm stance to support Syria in its war on terrorism.

General Secretary of the People’s Party, Sheikh Nawaf al-Milhem called for holding similar meetings on a regular basis to avoid sectarian strife and foil the conspiracy aimed at fragmenting the Syrian people and territory.

“The eighth one is open near Castello Road for armed militants to leave the city,” Antonov said.

The Syrian army and Hezbollah, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, have expelled Al Nusra Front terrorists and their allies from the Armament College and the Artillery College and nearby buildings at the Ramouseh Artillery Base in southwestern Aleppo. This move allowed the pro-government forces to set a full control of the road between Khan Tuman and the Ramouseh Neigborhood and besiege the militant-controlled areas of Aleppo city for the second time this summer.

In turn, Al Nusra terrorists, supported by other groups of the Jaish al-Fateh operation room, launched a counterattack in order to regain positions in the artillery base. By September 5, the pro-government forces have repelled the terrorists’ counter-attacks and now are securing the area.

The Russian Aerospace Forces made 75 air strikes on terrorist targets in southwestern Aleppo on September 4 and already made some 30 air strikes on September 5, supporting the pro-government forces there. Pro-government forces report that Al Nusra and its allies have lost from 100 to 200 fighters in these clashes.

The Syrian army and its allies will likely continue their advance, attacking the Hikma School and the northern part of 1070 Apartment Project. Then, they will likely advance in the Ramouseh Neighborhood. These moves will allow the Syrian government to control successfully the perimeter of the besieged militant-controlled areas.

The Iraqi pro-government militia “Haraket al-Nujba” has captured of the Khan Tuman depots near the strategic town of Khan Tuman in southern Aleppo and the pro-government forces have seized the town of Qarassi. These will allow them to develop advance on the strategic town of Khan Tuman in southern Aleppo.

The Turkish-led forces in Syria have taken control of the 91km border between Azaz and Jarabulus, wiping out the ISIS terrorist group from the area.

Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim announced on September 5 that Turkish Armed Forces and Turkish-backed militants had successfully expelled “terrorist organizations” from the area.

After securing the borderline between two strategic strongholds of Azaz and Jarabulus, the Turkey-led forces will likely advance on the ISIS-controlled logistical hub of Al-Bab. [emphasis mine] This will allow them to destroy the last hopes of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) to link the YPG-controlled areas in northern Syria.

2 Syrian soldiers were killed and 7 others wounded when a car bomb targeted the Bab Tadmor checkpoint at the entrance of al-Zahraa neighbourhood of Homs. The attack followed a failed joint offensive of Jund Al-Aqsa, Faylaq Al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army on the government-controlled town of Kawkab in the province of Hama. The Syrian army and Hezbollah killed over 30 terrorists and destroyed 2 tanks and 2 BMPs in the clashes there. 4 battle tanks, 2 BMPs, and 5 vehicles with machine guns were reportedly seized by the pro-government forces.

The situation in the province remains tense. Recently, the loyalists have taken back Khirbat al-Hajamah and the Samsam hill and now are in control of a part of Ma’arda. Clashes are ongoing.

"After winning back all the military colleges in Aleppo, the Syrian army and resistance forces are preparing to regain control over more regions adjacent to the military academy and we should wait for surprising and great victories in Aleppo in the next few hours," he added.

Also, another military source stressed that the terrorist groups have been discouraged and frightened by the army's recent advances in the military academy through Ramousiyeh in Southern Aleppo and after they came under a complete siege in Eastern Aleppo.
