From its side, ISIS claimed that its fighters attacked an SAA position in Khirbet al-Hawla village south of Resafa town in the southern Raqqa countryside. ISIS said that 12 Syrian soldiers were killed during the attack and that all its fighters managed to return safely.

Local sources claimed that the Russian Air Force warplanes have increased airstrikes on ISIS positions in the villages of Al-Buhamad, Al-Mughla andd Al-Jaber on the West Bank of the Euphrates River. Russian warplanes also bomb ISIS positions and vehicles in the eastern Homs countryside and near Deir Ezzor.

According to the latest reports, the SAA has reached the administrative border of Deir Ezzor, but hasn’t yet captured any position or village inside the province.

      More like the smart SAA commanders (like the one from the Tiger Forces), prefer not to have any ISIS presence on his flanks before moving on. Which is smart thinking. Better slow and steady then fast and assf***ed.

        Exactly, why change a strategy thats working?so isis have got control of some shit hole villages in the desert for a few more months, theres no rush, “slowly slowly ,catchy monkey”i know id much rather be looking over at the isis villages instead of out at the saa as it builds up its forces to roll over my position like it has been doing lately!.

      ISIS is being isolated in the city, just as I predicted. and advance on m20 south of the city, simultaneous attack from Arak north, to cut of the highway, in a few hours, they will cut the highway to Taybah, and then we will come back here monday and talk about how SAA will cook all your friends. I bet the Smerch, Uragon and TOS systems will leave beautiful scorched bodies of ISIS savages for miles, and those that try to escape will be killed in the desert like the dogs who tried to flee raqqa. Cant wait till monday to read your next set of butt hurt posts.

    Does several mean 2 ? At this rate, Syria will be able to kill ISIS-Daesh in 10 years !, and remember that USA-NATO-Israel through Qatar, Saudi, Jordan and Turkey provide terrorists supply from allover the world.

      A few years ago there was isis all over syria jihadi enclaves in aleppo and numerous other places,the US was able to make any story up about chemical attacks and “evil” government troops raping and murdering left right and centre and no one to show it for the sham it was, i for one was quite sure that although they were fighting bravely and Assad was not running away to hide,i still thought it was only a matter of time. Then the Russians steped up and the whole dynamic changed across the board, and now look at the scene,constant victories,total collapse in numerous areas,jihadis on green buses to save their once “al akbar” shouting arses, and russia isnt America,its not able to just give and give and give,its done wonders in Syria and if you dont see it your watching a different collection of videos than me!.
