Regarding Syria ….
“Fortunately, the Opposition continue to make progress this week, seizing numerous Assad military installations and positions across Syria.”
“Part of the reason for the Opposition’s continued success in recent weeks is that they are not only getting better quality weapons but are able to plan against and manage large scale regime troop movements because they are getting better satellite intelligence from Western allies.”
As I do when providing a link to Peter Clifford’s updates, be forewarned that you will see really horrible stuff, because that’s what war means.
Peter really deserves a Pulitzer for his persistent, diligent reporting on the Syrian civil war.

Message: Hi Peter, I have to tell you I find your reporting is brilliant in that it is alway accurate and cutting edge in a way that is getting the news out. On your reporting of the mass grave near Misrata. I have to say that in March a few tweeters like iyad elbagdadi who is reliable said there was a mass grave around there about 20 miles West of Misrata there may have more mass graves of around 2000 people, he may also confirm others places too as he was traking this for a while. If they knew of this then Im not sure why it was not picked up by reporters anyway it is now.

“The counselling, advice and support I have received from Peter over the years has had a hugely positive impact on my life. When I first went to see Peter I was very insecure, had low self esteem, lacked confidence and felt my life was going nowhere. The counselling changed my life. With the tools Peter gave me I was able to begin to work through various issues I had that were holding me back from living the life I wanted and deserved. I went back to University to do my Masters degree, I moved to London and I got a job that I love. Self-empowerment is a journey rather than a destination but I am happier, more fulfilled and perhaps most importantly, I’m now really enjoying life.”   LH

“Peter has been a rock for me from day one. His help and advice have changed my life. Not only has Peter helped me with my personal issues that I thought would cloud me for life, but he has shown me that  no idea or dream is silly and everybody deserves to be happy. I dread to think where I would be or what kind of a person I would be had it not been for his support. I certainly wouldn’t be even half as confident as I am now. Thanks Peter” – CH

  • Wisdom says:

    hello Peter, your report tells us about some very positive news around Azaz… Also I’m enjoying reading about Ergodan’s discomfiture :-))

    Not sure if you will permit the observation below from getting published; (commenting nevertheless):

    Poor Ergodan… his testicles are being squeezed; & he’s not permitted to scream … Ha Ha Ha

    One thing I’m confused about is: what are the Saudi’s trying to achieve by putting up their forces at Incirlik? Do they want to fight alongside their friends in the Idlib province? Or do they plan action along the Turkey-Syria border, which is still under IS control? Knowing Saudis, the latter seems to be improbable though. However, if that is true, then my chief worry is that it seems all forces are actually converging on Dabiq!!!

    Requesting your insights please…

    ps: I do not have a FB account… so please make it easy for us to comment!

    • Hi, Wisdom, thanks, for your comments. Saudi’s interest, like Turkey’s is to support Islamist groups (which may include Al Nusra) in taking control of Syria. They will therefore join with Turkey in preventing secular Kurds from taking over the northern part of Aleppo province along the Syria/Turkish border. In theory Saudi planes will be attacking IS, but like Russia they might just end up bombing the SDF/YPG. If the Turks/Saudis send in ground troops, then they might just end up getting bombed by Assad/Russia – and all hell will break loose. As you say, Dabiq is in the middle of all this – but personally I am not persuaded by that myth, just something for IS supporters to hang onto as their “caliphate” crumbles.
      You should be able to comment on my pages whether you have an FB account or not. If you have trouble let me know. Hope you like the new design anyway.PC.
