Rocket Attack Targeted Assad Hometown In Syria's Lattakia

Illustrative image.

Late on June 27, several rockets were fired from the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib at al-Qardahah, the hometown of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, in the southeastern countryside of Lattakia.

According to local sources in al-Qardahah, only two rocket actually reached the town. Both rockets landed in empty farmlands. No causalities or material losses were reported.

The rocket attack was reportedly carried out by al-Qaeda-affiliated Ansar al-Tawhid. The group is a close ally of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib. Sources in the region claimed that “new heavy rockets” were used in the attack.

The attack was a blatant violation of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey on March 5 of last year. The ceasefire is barely holding up.

HTS and its allies in Greater Idlib intensified their rocket attacks on nearby government-held areas this month. On June 20, a rocket attack on the town of Jurin in the northwestern Hama countryside claimed the life of a little girl. The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies responded with a series of fierce strikes on militants’ positions. At least seven militants were killed.

The rocket attack on al-Qardahah will not likely go unpunished. The SAA has been targeting HTS and its allies nonstop. Earlier today, a militant was killed in the southern countryside of Idlib by army fire.

Every word you type exemplifies your lack of class. The meaning of this expression is “lowly person, uncivilized, no manners,” etc. Read ‘Propaganda’ by Edward Berneys and ‘The Crowd’ by Gustave Le Bon.,-equity,-and-natural-law:d

I have deeply studied and reviewed multiple different perspectives on many subjects, you on the other hand have only heard one side in particular. You maintain the short sighted belief that anyone who disagrees with the opinion of the status quo is decrepit

Adjective: Broken down in health, physical or mental

You unwittingly accuse me of things which you are yourself; you were indoctrinated to believe ridiculous caricatures based on 5-10% fact and 90-95% lies. You do not think about it beyond your superficial understanding of the subject, if you truly lived in a free society you would have the freedom to agree or disagree and think for yourself instead of barely scratching the surface on what you were told to believe without question.

Since you cannot win the argument with verifiable facts, logic, common sense and intellectual objectivity you are therefore wrong. This is apparently too difficult for you to understand, instead you hold onto your prejudices based on lies with religious zeal.

You refuse to look into any amount of evidence that contradicts your worldview because you are a brainwashed prick without scruples.

You can’t prove me wrong so you always resort to personal attacks that carry no weight. The idiot is yourself and your confirmation bias, if you were right you could prove me wrong. But you can’t because you are a loser and hypocrite.

And I promise you that had you said any of those slanderous words to me face-to-face, you would grievously regret your misguided choice of words and profusely apologize while begging for my forgiveness. But since you are a coward you don’t have to feel responsible for what you say to me online.

You don’t know what you are talking about when it comes to Rhodesia. It wasn’t 84 white farmboys that attacked a camp of 5,000. There were only 8 or 9 , one on each truck , and the rest were blacks. I wasn’t talking about ability when I said about giving 12-14 year olds a gun and telling them to kill but you went off on a tangent claiming I was on mushrooms and lacked the knowledge. By your crap you showed your ignorance based on books. If you did know anything you would know who was based at Grand Reef at the time of the election .

You are so highly uneducated.

Marco Polo

You hold blind faith in your ideas without applying skills involving critical thinking and evaluating thee evidence.

You have demonstrated that you cannot understand complex ideas, especially not deeper philosophical concepts. When your feelings get involved you don’t think straight and resort to fight or flight, as if you came across a wild animal.

This overrides your capacity for critical thinking, this is cynically used as a form of “soft” mind control by those are are really in charge other than their figureheads who conceal the metaphorical man behind the curtain (a Wizard of Oz concept). Those who really make key decisions that have a major impact on society are a rootless international clique that we now refer to as the Globalist Deep State.

Death to ZOG


They try to mimic Hamas by striking deep in enemy territory… where they think it hurts. Only that 1) they‘re of course not on the same side and 2) B. As. is somewhere safe in Damascus.


Whoever uses the term „conspiracy theory“ has disqualified him/herself from any serious consideration.
It‘s a defamatory term used by Eastern and Western governments to disavow critical inspection. On US soil it was first used against those critically questioning the „one loan madman“ story of JF Kennedy‘s assassination…

It has no use in sober, factual discourse. The very fact that the expression has gained such currency, goes to show that sober and factual almost entirely absent in media.

Like something or not, bring your proof.
