ISIS also called for forceful conscription in DZ governorate because of the SAA advances – https://twitter.com/hxhassan/status/895810832084471809

SF seems to be parroting ISIS media centers a lot, of late.
It wasn’t like that months ago, wonder if they underwent some change.

Everybody knows that ISIS reports are normally garbage, especially if they aren’t corroborated by any objective evidence.

Everyday it seems we get more and more “X Syrians soldiers have been killed in Y location” in titles, only to find out that the reports were coming from ISIS or Nusra when reading the text.


I was about to comment the same thing.

We would lie to ourself, if we assuming that SAA has no casualties. Furthermore, SAA is struggle on all front lines against SAA, except the SAA Tiger Force making study advances. Considering that ISIS has no arms supplies and most likely numbers in units are shrinking SAA is making poor progress, considering Air support by RaAIR and SyARF and new arms coming from RUssia. This may me due to bad in SAA fields officers or High Command, this may leads to low morale in soldier level

Joe Doe What are you talking about??? ISIS has huge stockpiles of arms and money given to them by Israel and its slaves the USSA and Saudi Judea Arabia.

Joe Doe

They may have, but the ISIS can’t be resupply as they are surrounded in Syria and Iraq. Therefore, the supply most likely are shrinking.

The Oil profits has ended and again ISIS is surrounded and can’t sale the Oil to Turkey.

John Brown

Yes but they have billions of dollars in arms and money stock pilled and such stored weapons is what the Russian and Syrian air forces have been bombing. ISIS also has arms manufacturing facilities taken over from the Iraqi and Syrian governments and machinery supplied by racist supremacist Israel and their slaves the USSA and Saudi Judea Arabia and ISISI still gets air drops from the USSA and full resupply by Israel for ISIS units along the Israeli border. So ISIS is not running out of any ammo etc. maybe man power, but not ammo proven by the fact they can go on the offensive against the SAA and maintain battle along many km of front lines.

ISIS has no lack of weapons. Well, they may have some lack of the advanced ones. I anything, they have a lack of soldiers.

We see full smaller depots left very often. Large are seen too. Some could be about parts of their logistics are gone or slowed down. I hope so.


Nobody controls the desert. These colors on the map are Just isolated outposts and the occasional way station.

Isis is getting supplies. They are getting supplies from HTS sympathizers in idlib, and they are getting supplies from Jordan to the south. They are running supplies right thru red territory unseen.
