 Video shows moment Syrian Army bombs huge rebel¬†group

Syrian army troops on Wednesday killed 175 rebels, many of them al-Qaida-linked fighters, in an ambush described as one of the deadliest attacks by government forces against fighters near Damascus, according to state media.

An opposition group said the dawn ambush — part of a government effort to secure the capital — was carried out by the Lebanese Hezbollah group, which has been instrumental in helping President Bashar Assad’s regime push back rebels entrenched in the suburbs of the capital city.

Syrian state news agency SANA quoted a field commander in the eastern Ghouta area as saying most of the rebels killed in the assault near Oteibah lake southeast of Damascus belonged to the al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front rebel group. The report said several of those killed were foreign fighters who came to Syria from Saudi Arabia, Chechnya and Qatar.

  1. Who do you route for? 175 killed is good but until 9/11 Hezbollah had more American blood on their hands. "kill them all let their god sort them out." - Julius caesar

    1. True, but Assad is the lesser of the two evils, I believe.

    2. The Wahhabi of all the Islamic sects are the most ferocious and brutal. They have been the ones eating their enemies organs and impaling infants, children and woman and behind all the mass killings and beheadings!
      Hizbollah is but a very small sect over all, The Sunnis go hand in hand with the Wahhabi, but when they do get a foothold on Syria, you can bet the Wahhabi will turn against the Sunni, they are not one and the same.
      Just as the Wahhabi has in the past months turned against the Taliban and the FSA fighters, they have but one goal, and that is to see the House of Saud empowered. The Wahhabi see themselves as being the true Islam and Saudi Arabia as the one true Arab Nation.
      Assad has got to stay in power and here is where I disagree with Israel, I believe they are making a huge mistake allying with Obama against Assad. Then you have the threat Russia poses. They have a lot of financial investments in Syria, they will not allow for Israel or the US to interfere without consequences.

  2. If Bashar Assad looses Syria, the whole Near East will fall rapidly there after. First Hizbollah and Lebanon, it won't last long at all. Then Jordan, and I suspect King Absullah II will conceded it over rather quick thinking he'll get some sort of power sharing deal. But the Wahhabi won't have it. Then both the West Bank and Gaza. The Arabs hate the Palestinians, they have been tolerated only because they are good Jew killers. But once Jordan falls into the hands of the heavily Saudi and Baraq supported Wahhabi, they will fall very fast!
    I then suspect they will pour all their efforts into taking Egypt back...The Saudi's tried to broker a deal with Morsi, Assad, and Abdullah prior to the Arab Spring developments, and all refused. The Saudis also saw an opportunity to take down the Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh, which kicked off the whole Arab Spring uprising.
    Fist Yemen, Libya, Egypt and then Syria, all being financed, militarized and weaponized by Baraq Obama and further financed by the Saudis...The Saudis are acting as if their hands are clean, but are in fact sending out the Wahhabi bi proxy to disrupt the whole of the Near East. My guess is that it has everything to do with the oil pockets of these country's and their strategic seaports.
    Assad needs to stay in power. It would be easier for Israel to deal with the much smaller sects like Hizbollah and the Shi'ite, than the much larger more brutal Sunni, Wahhabi factions.

    2. The Saudis, I inadvertently left out...Tried to have a oil pipe line ran through Yemen, Egypt, Jordan and Syria... Man did it anger them when they refused to allow it...The Saudis oil pockets are drying up quickly and they are having problems shipping their oil, was the reason for brokering the pipe line...
      It was soon after this failure that the Wahhabi started warring across the Near East...I just believe it is the Saudis intentions to get thier hands on this oil...If they don't soon do something, they will loose everything as their oil, finances their whole infrastructure.
      I also believe this is why Obama is stalling the Keystone pipe line...It would hurt the Saudis economy really bad!
