    “330 vehicles, 3 battle tanks, 11 artiller pieces, 5 machine guns” … That’s a LOT for some ragheads defending only one position. Seems that SAA deserves applauses for the good and hard job.

      I think they brought it from their withdrawals from different front lines. Now they trapped and had no time to bring it into Deir Ezzor.

        Or to put a positive spin on this, they didn’t have enough drivers to drive them away! ;)

      Several villages were mentioned, no doubt, many are the ISIS iconic Toyota trucks.

    Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reached the first buildings in
    the strategic city of Al-Sukhnah, a military source told Al-Masdar News. Great.

    Great job of Syria-Russia-Hezbolah-Iran army, congratulation, but this is just the beginning of other part of the war, do not be so confident and underestimate the terrorists. It looks like better air-Russia support were done here,
