On Sunday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies captured Masa’adah village and Rsm Qunbur farm in the eastern Hama countryside, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.

The media outlet also confirmed that Uqayribat town was captured by the SAA.

Furthermore, the Hezbollah media wing said that ISIS defenses are collapsing all over the eastern Hama countryside pocket. ISIS likely lost most of its remaining fighters in the Uqayribat battle.

The ISIS-linked news agency Amaq published photos of a VBIED attack on the SAA east of al-Na’aimah village in the eastern Hama countryside on Saturday.

Meanwhile, ISIS continued to shell neighborhoods of al-Salamiyah city, according to local sources. So far, no civilians have been injured. However the shelling caused huge material damage.

ISIS lost more than half of its area in the eastern Hama countryside pocket. The SAA operation will likely liberate the entire area within next week.

    unconfirmed ISus propaganda show.. i wonder why this website always publishes this crap… are you getting paid for this???

    • FlorianGeyer

      Personally I prefer to see all sides media output and then assess what is likely and what is propaganda.
      Surely being able to do this is better than the likes of CNN etc deciding what we see and hear ?

      Do you expect saa to confirm all of their casualties, when they are averaging 100 to 150 kia every single day?! Simply zoom in to first 2 pics and you will see at least 23 men running away on foot. With luck none were killed, but a very close call.

  • Lupus

    no more busses for this evil scum. Only the bus straight to hell. 💀

    • northerntruthseeker .

      I am still waiting to see what the US will try to do to save these mercenaries under their payroll?

  • Kell

    The last desperate actions of those about to be eliminated.
    Its a worry these VBIEDs are still getting through after all this time dealing with them.

    • electron

      The saa men were very lucky here; you can count (zoom in 2 first photos) at least 23 saa men scattered running away, and at a relatively safe distance from the truck bomb, running away on foot as the svbied turns in. With luck, there were only injuries, but a couple of vehicles are done for. Luckily, it was a relatively small svbied.

      It is not a secret that saa takes very limited to no preparations to minimize effects of svbied`s. This becomes more difficult as you are always advancing and changing locations, but still, in most videos you see men just standing around, sitting, doing there own thing. They should be put to work when no fighting is taking place, for at least 3 to 4 hours per day. Sure, this would make for some unhappy guys, but they would be increasing their own survival chances.

      Something very wrong about the VBIED photos published by Amaq, which is hardly reliable as we know:

      The objective of the VIEBD is obscured with a green indicator, and there are no vehicle tracks leading to the position. It would certainly not have arrived via the main road, though it might have arrived via the dirt track in the bottom of the photo.
      Why hide what you have destroyed?
      The soldiers running away would more likely have taken refuge behind the 3 tanks.
      There appear to be 2 separate explosions, and the truck between them seems undamaged.
      Signs of previous damage near the undamaged truck
      Could Isis co-ordinate a quite high-res aerial photo with a VIEBD strike?
      Notice the tunnel in the right left-hand corner placed to command the road. Isis tunnel?

      More probably a Russian or Syrian air strike strike on an Isis group passed off as an Isis strike on SAA, or irrelevant photos from a completely different time and place.

    Please can someone tell ISIS that the VBIEDs attack and Shelling of SAA positions are really peanuts in comparison to the Heat SAA is putting on them. If they don’t run away from the heat, they will get roasted. Period.

  • χρηστος

    each and every SAA soldier is a hero..they are fighting against an enemy that will slaughter them if they surrender, against an enemy that is paid millions $ and is equiped by far better than they are…..a hopeless battle in the beginning…..but they kept fighting….and now they are winning their country back

    Tomorrow, this pocket will disappear with the help of aerospace Russia forces.
