Nubbul and al-Zahra, Symbols of Syrian Shias’ Resistance

SHAFAQNA- The two towns had been under siege for three and a half years but its residents put up a heroic resistance against Takfiri terrorists and never surrendered.

The residents of Nubbul and al-Zahra suffered from lack of food and water and there was no electricity in the two towns.

None of so-called human rights advocates in the West raised any objection to the three-and-a-half-year blockade of the towns by Takfiri terrorist groups.

Despite their plight, the people of Nubbul and al-Zahra never surrendered to terrorists and heroically put this brutal siege behind them.

On Wednesday, Syria’s official news agency, SANA, said the Syrian forces conducted the final operation meant to break the siege on Nubbul and al-Zahra, ending the three-and-a-half-year blockade on the towns and liberating the residents from the captivity of militants.

The reports did not elaborate on the identity of the militants, saying the two towns were under siege by terrorist organizations.

However, reports have shown that Aleppo’s northern countryside, where Nubbul and Zahra are located, have been under the control of the al-Qaeda-linked terror group al-Nusra Front.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with Takfiri terrorists like ISIL and al-Nusra Front currently controlling parts of it, mostly in the east.

According to the United Nations, more than 250,000 people have been killed and one million wounded during the conflict.
