Binocular Snapshot for 05/09/2014

The MoD statement also added that the attack will include a push to retake the Tufaha Bridge, which is in east Fallujah. The CTS announced that the Tufaha Bridge was retaken and a source added that 11 members of ISIS were killed during that operation. Furthermore, the anti-government Tribal Military Council in Fallujah stated on its social media outlet that its members responded to the attack, inflicting losses against the security forces and launching a counter attack.
Also, an anonymous source from the Iraqi Police in Anbar stated that the Iraqi Police and the Iraqi Army (IA) requested from the directorates the suspension of internet and cell phone services in Ramadi and Fallujah until a further notice. This is intended to prevent the communication between armed groups as the operation gets underway.
Meanwhile, the commander of IA Aviation, General Hamid Atiya al-Maliki stated that the “final hour is close” citing the high moral of the soldiers adding that the result will be “splendid” for the people and describing the operation as the “final battle.” Another anonymous source from Fallujah General Hospital stated that the IA forces stationed around the city shelled various areas of Fallujah which resulted in the death of 13 individuals and injured 40 others.

An anonymous source from the AOC stated that the “remaining” of the civilian population started to depart the city through a “safe port” provided for them.

Homs was the first major city in Syria where the revolt to unseat Assad took root in 2011. Its fall caps a year of regime battlefield successes: regaining the Qalamoun region between Damascus and Homs, driving rebel forces further from central Damascus, and crushing opposition pockets between Homs and Tartous on the coast.

Iranian advisors have played a critical role in reversing the tide against the Assad regime. Initial army offensives against rebel areas exacted high military casualties, which gutted the top brigades and exhausted the troops.

Under Iranian guidance, the Syrian regime has adopted “surrender or starve” siege tactics, surrounding and sealing off rebel neighborhoods and pounding them into submission with air strikes, barrel bombs and artillery.

Hezbollah’s battle-hardened fighters are the “pivotal” spearhead of the regime’s offensive, backed by some 80,000 fighters with the Iran-trained National Defense Force, a mainly Alawite militia, and 20,000 to 30,000 Iraqi Shiite volunteers
