Syrian army captures Aleppo Thermal Plant, encircles ISIS (w/ VIDEO)

Screen grab from the video below

Al Masdar News reports:

The Syrian Arab Army’s elite ‘Tiger Forces’ – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over Aleppo Thermal Power Plant after a fierce battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.
Early this morning, the fearful, highly-trained commandos captured Umm Turaykiyah and Balat villages to the west of the Plant; thus beleaguering over 800 ISIS jihadis who have been fighting the government troops at the strategic city of Al-Safira and its nearby village of Tal ‘Aran.
The besieged 800 ISIS fighters are left with neither a loophole to escape from nor a supply route to fed with; hence – militarily speaking – options are scarce: surrender or die.
In a parallel context, the inhabitants of once the economical capital of Syria will now breath life as the Thermal Plant will be re-operated again, thus supplying them with the electrical power needed to lead a decent life after more than 2 years of a severe shortage of electrical power and water supplies.

By telling the truth the Zio call us Anti-Semitics. Thanks to Jimmy Carter and many other people who have come up with what has been denied to us by the Jewish controlled news media. The Israelis came to the Middle East from all over the world (110 countries) specially from Easter Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, etc,,, and came to Palestine to steal the land by killing dispossessing, destroying, maiming, a whole nation and founded a “State” of their own on the blood and property of the Natives of Palestine.

Funnily enough, the first meaning given by the Oxford Dictionary for the word ‘fearful’ is ‘terrible, or ‘awful’. I suppose what the author meant would be better expressed as ‘fearsome’.
Greetings and all good wishes for a fearsome victory to Syria’s Tiger Force.


“the fearful, highly-trained commandos captured Umm Turaykiyah and Balat villages to the west of the Plant”
I don’t think that ‘fearful’ is the word the author would choose for this translation: ‘fearless’ perhaps?
