    All Western ministers cites imply that the Syrian voters must not be given a chance to reelect president Assad.:rolleyes:

    Now we see the western defination of the words "free" and "fair", just like their other pervert defination of "freedom fighter".

    It is really hard not to be "biased" towards western media. Next time I am accused of being "biased", I would say "I take that as a complement". :)

    and today I saw conflicting reports of:
    I looked at the map of the area:

    and it's roughly ten miles in each of the intervals, from left to right: "M5" (its Damascus - Homs stretch; Government-controlled) - Sadad - Mahin (the red point) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Qaryatayn (ISIL-controlled)

    I decided to state the obvious: the level of detail can't be too high; I now checked

    [​IMG]

    against the view of approximately the same area, and from approximately the same period of time, by "Peto Lucem" (you can follow him (or her :) on Twitter
    https://twitter.com/petolucem):
    [​IMG]

    (in the eastern part of this area, the positions north to
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Hamraa
    are missing on the Russian map;
    I posted about the fights in the western part:

    and later)

    said both Qarasi and Khan Tuman had been taken by Government Forces today; should I believe it?

    Syrian T-90 close Alep, Russians also have some very few close their bases.

    perhaps I should, as now I saw a video of Rebels firing a TOW toward outskirts of Khan Tuman from what's marked "Grain silos" below:
    [​IMG]
    (I don't post that video as it shows a Squad of soldiers getting ... hurt)

    and a video of Rebels' artillery working today (don't know exactly in which part of that area), which could hardly be effective against the T-90 FORBIN posted above :)

    Anyway, included in "Peto Lucem" map:
