SyMod: The SAA controls Masharah and Tel Masharah

Kinda strange, as I thought the rebels claimed they destroyed the large convoy of tiger forces we saw moving the other day.
Given the lack of news from trusted rebel sources (or even pro gov sources), and lack of verification, i think it may be safe to assume the rebels lied about destroying the convoy, as we clearly see it arrive.
Meh, unknown source & unconfirmed claim (even hours later).. and the part about someone dying in the attack who earlier shot a video of himself threatening Daraa made it sound more like fan fiction anyway.
Yeah the claims of that person dying in the attack definitely sounded like fan fiction, and in the light of this somewhat confirmed for now that the attack claims are likely bs too, of course that is uncertain until the person in the first video appears again.
It's kind of amusing how poorly his first tweet aged, given it was this cheering death tweet:
Followed by this tweet announcing how great the FSA are for destroying the convoy and stopping Assads troops moving up:
Before we then see this tweet announcing that the tiger forces arrive, claiming a big battle will happen and apparently disaster will happen for the pro gov forces
I kept looking at that and a couple other accounts today and this one struck me the most as the only account to really go in about the alleged attack, in what turned into almost circlejerk fashion like that famous Ropcke quote about the Hama offensives.
Of course, it is still probable that a convoy did get hit, but it grows increasingly unlikely given the low quality of any evidence / lack of discussion, to such a point that even the new Syrian Army had better evidence of their battles, even when they were just blindly firing into the desert (as per the footage in the ISIS release post abu kamal)
I doubt the rebels are in the position to attack any convoys, let alone to destroy them.
Hmm, weird.. the long convoy on the highway at 1:06 is here driving from Damascus international airport towards Damascus city. Where are they coming from?
Thanks for locating the convoy!
I guess an Airport has a tarmac with a lot of space, is a non public area (some wires keeping people out) and is likely to have some active workshops.
This together with the fact that any transport plain from Iran will land there (with for example spare parts), makes the Damascus international airport a perfect place to gear up and refurbish bevor a new deployment. They definitely invested time and effort in refurbishing their gear as some of their artillery pieces are freshly painted.
The videos showing convoys of new, repainted Land Cruisers also supports your point.
There's going to be a big battle where they're going. The rebels have sworn there will be 'volcanoes of fire'. Pretty bold statement, and raises some questions with the US' threats recently. Will Russian Military be providing support?
