Up to 25 ISIS members were killed last weekend when the SAA ambushed an ISIS unit withdrawing from al-Safa. The rest were mostly eliminated in artillery and airstrikes by Syrian forces.

    We appear to be in a virtual News Blackout from the SAA. This has always been a precursor of extensive military operations.

      And rightly so. Imagine if D-Day or Bagration had taken place amid a flood of social media messages from the troops and constant news releases? In order for the hammer to fall successfully it has to fall where and when the enemy does not suspect.

      Lol follow https://twitter.com/thearabsource for live feeds and news of the SAA. The Sweida op is due to end in 2 weeks tops. Isis will surrender in 1 week unless beaten before because of the shortage of food, ammunition and supplies. After this, the SAA will redeploy to Deir Ezzor desert and finish them off.

    Are SAA-Russia still having problem taken al-Safa area ? I wonder why it has been taken so long to get rid of the terrorists in this are, it looks like that they shouldn’t have so big problems.

      Its an extinct volcano, with a high rim and a very rough interior that is some what flat.
      That is an illusion though as its full of frozen waves of lava in unpredictable forms, caves etc.
      In the reconstruction of Syria it would be an ideal source for the rock and sand as volcanic materials seem to produce extremely strong concrete.

        Sounds geologicaly fascinating

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      its a volcano, not very human-friendly terrain lol

      They are engaged in a circle-jerk with their eyes and ears tightly closed so as not to spoil their pleasure….

    Dear SF, the word “ongoing” is pleonasm and gives the impression that the writer is an American or an English English Lit graduate (“the horror, the horror”).
