Government Forces Take Advantage Of Deir Ezzor Battle, Open New Front Against ISIS

Donate

Syrian government forces have taken advantage of the ongoing firece battle for Deir Ezzor city and opened a new front against ISIS terrorists.

According to pro-govenrment sources, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) advanced in the direction of Sarayim village southeast of the Doubayat gas field near the key town of Sukhna in the province of Homs.

The SAA and the NDF didn’t enter the village yet but a fighting was reported in its outskirts.

If govenrment forces are able to liberate the village, they will likely be able to conduct a large advance in order to take control over the Doubayat gas field and to secure the southern flank of Sukhna.

In turn, ISIS has little resources to counter the SAA advance in the area because the terrorist group has re-deployed large forces to Deir Ezzor.

            HAHA you naiv poor girl I just dont like the baby killer ASAD and dont worry am not sad, you think he will stay in power then you are blind you wait and see

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The only baby killers I know of are ISIS, KSA, Israel,Al Qaeda, US, UK,EU,GCC, PKK,YPG …… etc. the problem is like those real babykillers they want a real war so they may get also more civil wars in their own countries. This prospect doesn’t look good in the long run as they won’t be on the victors side, just a tiny look into the future.

            Its true splinter cells will remain in areas where they get help, along Golan Israel will pay cannon fodder to disrupt peace. But with large Hezbollah and Iranian troops staying in the country along with the most sophisticated radar system. Most cells will be butchered within a year or so. Also with the border security a priority its looking good. As you have noticed Qatar, North and South Korea with Japan are using Russia as a peace broker as there honest and many European countries are impressed with there handling of the Syrian conflict
            US can breath fire and fury no one cares, new team in town

            Funny how right now they are running like scared girls ,the Jabhat al Nusra has been surrounded in Idlib along with Mohammed al Joulani , they should have never killed that Principal and her brother there , very bad choice ,very very bad choice. The financier has run of al Tayyem has run along with 4 non Syrian families flying away in 2 US helicopters.

            They are getting so beat in Hamas they continue to lose , and they are not facing large numbers of SAA. So far every attack by ISIS and HTS have been beaten back, they are in small pockets in Hamas and slowly being killed.

            Miss Terra
            According to a military source in the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army’s Al-Qassem Group of the Republican Guard has managed to repel all of the terrorist group’s infiltration attempts thus far; however, the Islamic State has refused to give-up on the assault.

            The above is from your own propoganda pro sources site ,, Does not look like they are running away to me the are figthing til the End..You wish they were running away you mean

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            This parts of US propaganda designed to fear monger, they were so overboard in it. That stuff is worse than the propaganda in the 30’s-40s as bad as the Jewish propaganda for a 160 years. There are the few like you who watch this and think it will happen is a laugh. These Takfiri have effectively destroyed the idea permanently as it will never exist with any stability.

          • lion

            According to some local sources and the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), ISIS units successfully overrun the government forces defense and entered into the town of Uqayribat. Reports suggest that the SAA and its allies withdrew from the area and the town fell into the hands of ISIS.

            Who is running even with the might of the Russian Air force still they cant manage them. EVERYBODY knows with out the support of Russian airforce and multinational force agains them IS he would be hanged a long time ago but any way soon enough….

            On Friday, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) captured the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 90th Brigade base east of al-Hadar town in the southern Damascus countryside, according to the HTS-linked news agen

            TOLD YOU SOON ANOTHER FRONT FROM IDLIB AS WELL TOWARDS HAMA
            MARK MY WORDS ASSAD THE DOG WILL NOT SURVIVE MORE THAN 2 YEARS EITHER HE WILL FLEE EITHER KILLED

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            It’s been recaptured already and Faster than it was taken, they are pushed back at heavy losses. The HTS, FSA and ISIS have lost and will learn they are done terrorists will always die a thousand deaths. Terrorist Dogs will perish as they are running everywhere else all they are doing is preventing their eventual demise.

            They run to another country or home they are dead they will be hunted to extinction the US planned it that way.

            Look Terra am not for terrorism i hate unjustice i hate people who kill iinnocent people dont get me wrong the people of Syria is suffering children are getting killed i hope all this stops and that the people can live in peace…. But he Bashar is a Tyrant and most be removed i dont care who does it. I know the zionist are a player in this madness they are the worst but that doesent mean this tyrant Bashar family should stay in power… his Father was a killer thats a fact he masacared a whole city Bashar al Assad is his fathers son… Just becouse he disagrees with the pirate state Israel does not give him the right to kill his own people just to stay in power….

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            You are a tyrant with your rantings and support , thank god your actions haven’ killed anyone yet as these have. Follow this path as you are right now you will find yourself the only one creating the hatred that consumes you. The Israelis have never adhered to international law and they flagrantly ignored over 100 resolutions in regards to this,that is why they want the Golan settled by backstabbing Muslims like you. Syria has every right to ask for the return of their land.

            There is no reasoning with you on your false history of being wronged, the Syrian people were butchered by the Muslim brotherhood twice in the history of Syria and this is the second such incident from backwards murdering scum who should’ve all been executed when his father was alive. The first time they controlled the area from 1959 until 1983 they continued a campaign of terror and murder in Hama Governate killing tens of thousands during that time, this is the real history of your Muslim Brotherhood cowardly family own it and get over it.

            They would kill Christians, Sunnis, Shias Alawites for decades because they opposed these illiterate, wastrel elites.You don’t inherit a position you earn it. These Sunni zealots are just pandering scum who opposed the Assads and the rest of Syria who wanted a peaceful resolution to Israel.

            This is what their betrayal cost as they say you reap what you sow and so shall you be reaped.

    Oh how severely they must be frustrated in the west. I remember a couple of years ego western leaders were telling with a smile that any day now Assad will be toppled.

    • jason sixx

      The ‘any day’ part was not that assad was gna be toppled, but that they were repeating and wishing it and shoving it down our throats literally any and EVERY day!

      • Jan Tjarks

        Which showed what type of ‘democrats’ they were, none at all.

        It’s up to the Syrian people to decide when Assad has to go. After these successes it is more than unlikely anyway.

    • Dim

      Where are those leaders for the moment! Discarded by their shadow masters in a dustbin!
      And Erdogan fired into his own leg: now kurds are unstoppable.

  • Behold a Pale Horse

    Remember when Aleppo fell? Seems a long time ago now.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    USA/NATO = UN and Israel are planing unother self destruction.USA has a big military which can’t event defeat small countries military’s.USA is safe by nuclear weapons which are freely accessible.USA is supposed to withdraw and go back safe their citizens who are drowning and eat and attack by agitators and snakes.Israel must be force to respect its neighbours and accept them.Satanyahu is double face full of hate and pride.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    ISIS cops should be dump in Trump and Obama red lines with their chemicals.UN= USA/NATO dreams of controlling Syria,Iraq and Libya oil and gas dreams were shattered by Russia and moderate free allies.Erdogan and son is no longer getting free oil.Kurds and YPG or PKK fake excuses of Erdogan doesn’t work anymore.

  • Jan Tjarks

    With other words, SAA unleashed its reserves, which have been held back for eventual crisis situations. That too means they do not expect that Daesh would be able to field any further forces to throw SAA of balance around Deir Ezzor.

    A very good sign.

    Question is, when SAA will address the North towards Ma’adan. So far I expect, that this is the next major operation, but we will see, it might be even that they go for the far east of Syria. But I highly doubt a move towards Al-Bukhama at the moment.

    Nevertheless, this attack too aims at shortening the front line.

    • Barba_Papa

      Methinks they leave Al-Bukhama until the Iraqis get their shit in order and finally start securing their border. They need to be good friends with the Iraqis, no need to antagonize them by sending every remaining ISIS rat into Iraq. Besides, the US and FSA are blocked off from advancing to Al-Bukhama in the south, it seems far more urgent to block the US and SDF off from advancing into East Syria

      • Jan Tjarks

        Yep, I had similar thoughts about this. But even the far east of Syria will push Daesh out to Iraq already. Even though it won’t be that many.

        Hopefully Iraq and Syria will coordinate, but with the USa regaining influence, it is likely that they try to create a situation to upset Iraq against Syria. Already that Iraq didn’t decide to clear the border region, which would have been more than reasonable, is a sign for that.

        • Red Tick Alert

          I thought the Iraqi PMU were protecting the border and so there will be no chance

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Syria hasn’t released any of it’s reserves as they using current forces in shoring up defenses in and around Idlib and continue to manage various fronts, they have the reserves ready to be called up if they are needed.

      • Jan Tjarks

        Don’t get me wrong, I’m not meaning any reserves beyond Sukhna. They would arrive too late anyway around Deir Ezzor if something would happen. But combat reserves wich mostly are kept directly behind the front lines. to be poured in wherever it gets critical.

        That Daesh is able to threaten the connection towards Deir Ezzor is not unexpected. No one expected an easy fight. It’s more about Daesh maybe pulling off some stunt, which would need immediate addressing. But, Daesh does not possess such reserves anymore.

        As such, Idlib is a complete different story anyway, far away from the battle around Deir Ezzor. Those forces would be able to address any moves from Al-Qaeda (HTS). Slowly that area is heating up anyway.

    the Snake Arab Army will not have the luxury of pushing through several kilometers of desert landscape to reach the provincial capital.
    Instead, they will have to fight the Islamic State in the heavily fortified Thardeh Mountains that overlook the Deir Ezzor Airport from its western perimeter.

    DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:10 A.M.) – Scores of ISIS car bombs were hurled at the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Islamic State’s latest propaganda video covering eastern Hama, a region where some 70 jihadist-held villages stand fully surrounded by government forces.

    With the SAA systematically chipping away at ISIS’ isolated Hama pocket, most recently capturing its stronghold Uqayribat, jihadist militants are striking back through blatant suicide missions that reportedly have resulted in the death of 7 Russian soldiers in recent weeks
