    Governor of the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor said that Syrian Armed forces liberated al-Bagilya settlement, where the militants of Daesh militant group had killed 280 people.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — Syrian Armed forces liberated al-Bagilya settlement, where the militants of the Islamic State (ISIL) militant group had killed 280 people, governor of the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor told Sputnik on Sunday.

    "ISIL militants entered in the village of al-Bagilya… last night and perpetrated a massacre of whole families. For this reason the army headed to this region to save the population. There were clashes with ISIL militants, they suffered significant casualties, the rest succeeded to flee to the neighboring areas controlled by ISIL," Mohammad Qaddur Ajnyyja said.

    Earlier in the day, sources familiar with the situation told Sputnik that Daesh jihadists could enter the village with the help of some 30 suicide bombers.

    Local residents told Sputnik that Daesh murdered some 280 people in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, where Russia had delivered a humanitarian aid earlier.

      cast235, And in addition to your very intelligent military input, if it were to occur as you expertly pointed out was there a journalist who quickly passed the news on the Internet that the village has been secured? Can we expect more similar articles on other Syrian villages, settlements, one way streets, cellars or even backyards that are being liberated? I reckon we should!

      cast235, I must apologise to you as well as I mistakenly have misinformed you in my reply that it was a journalist who reported the events in this rather small village.

      I state that it was not the case! It was a "local source" who did so :)

      I think it may have been a tactical error to airdrop supplies to anyone but Syrian military, then let them distribute it. ISIL's supply lines are being cut, but 22 tons of food is dropped in a less than secure area? That doesn't make a lot of sense.

      vendor, It wasn't really an idea. I trust Russia without hesitation. I'll repeat that. I trust Russia without any hesitation whatsoever.

      There could have been some confusion or the situation may have been so desperate, that it was worth the risk. I consider it a possible error more than anything else. But as chaotic as the situation is, with the West fighting on the side of the terrorists, anything is possible.

      But the bottom line is that nobody is responsible for those killings of the 280 other than NATO and its coalition of the wicked who keep dragging this out and supporting ISIL.

      jas, I think you need to re-read my comment and understand it better. Sometimes words should not be literally translated.

      In addition I never ever argued for a second that the figure of 280 is incorrect or that IS attack did not happen like my crazy but still loving friend above assumed. Perhaps I should speak in Russian if I knew any?

      All I am saying is this (now you can take it literally) I do not believe that this "village" was liberated in three hours or so. It is incorrect.

      Read this:
      au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/30590946/toll-from-is-attack-on-syria-forces-in-deir-ezzor-rises-to-75-mon
      Read this

      At least 135 people, including dozens of civilians, were killed Saturday in an Islamic State group onslaught on pro-regime forces in the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, a monitor said.

      The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 85 civilians were killed in the assault which also claimed the lives of 50 Syrian soldiers and pro-government militiamen.

      Earlier the Britain-based monitor, which relies on a network of sources on the ground, gave a toll of at least 75 regime forces killed in the IS attack but made no mention of any civilian casualties.

      A source close to the Syrian government said that the Islamic State killed as many as 250 people in attacks on the neighborhoods of Begayliya and Ayash in Syria's eastern provincial capital, Reuters reports.

      According to the source, those killed included pro-government fighters and their families, with some of the casualties being beheaded.

      And now think before you star typing (Ivan)!

      Think about 3 1/2 hours. Do not think about Sputnik, Putin, Russia, and Cosmos. Think about 3 1/2 hours.

      Am I getting through?

      Beirut, Jan 16 (AFP) At least 75 Syrian soldiers and allied militiamen were killed today in a multi-front attack by the Islamic State group on the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, a monitor said.
      The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, revising an earlier toll, said at least 60 of those killed had died in the northern suburb of Al-Baghaliyeh, which IS captured.

      (AFP) ABH .

      So 60, or 75 SAA guys get killed and yet 3 1/2 hours later they liberate the village. The only source is a "local source" and the only outlet is Sputnik. (I did not find any other to be honest. All refer to Sputnik)

      Now, put that aside. Put aside everything I said. Think about what is going on in that part of Syria. I have my theories which I will reveal soon. I need more proof.

      jas,

      It makes sense IF the Russian delivery of food aid prevents NATO/US from using the allegation of famine as a pretext to invade Syria under the 'Duty to Protect' version of Regime Change.

      vendor,

      The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a ONE man pressure group run from a run down council house ( state owned house for the low paid) in the City of Coventry in the UK. Coventry is also rather run down. The guy that controls the 'Observatory' is Syrian and was imprisoned there a few times before he came to the UK to sponge off UK taxpayers.

      The original text has been changed. This is added as a new info;


      "ISIL militants entered in the village of al-Bagilya... last night and perpetrated a massacre of whole families. For this reason the army headed to this region to save the population. There were clashes with ISIL militants, they suffered significant casualties, the rest succeeded to flee to the neighboring areas controlled by ISIL," Mohammad Qaddur Ajnyyja said.

      All other websites available earlier in the day that have used the same source have removed the same text. Why?

      vendor,
      The bitter old man in Coventry ,Great Britain, fits the pattern of US intelligence gathering via Social Media and gossip.
      Military Intelligence,US style, is an oxymoron anyway in my opinion.

      vendor, only explanation I could come up with - other than a plain set up.
    • Ann in reply tojas(Show commentHide comment)
      jas, IMO, Russia has proven themselves trustworthy - the west, not so much.

      FlorianGeyer, B I N G O ! That would be my thought.

      vendor, The point I got was that this one guy with a bone to pick with Syria isn't exactly a pillar of integrity.
    • FlorianGeyerin reply toFlorianGeyer(Show commentHide comment)
      FlorianGeyerFlorianGeyer,

      'The point is' that the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights is a grandiose name for a one man propaganda outlet in Great Britain that uses Twitter and phone calls purportedly from Syria to issue bogus 'informative' reports that are repeated parrot fashion by the corporate owned press.
