ISIS Launched Offensive In Homs Province Following US Missile Strikes Against Syrian Forces

ISIS terrorists used US missile strikes against government forces in the Syrian province of Homs and launched an attack near the important town of Al-Furqalas in Homs province. Clahes between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and ISIS terrorists also erputed at the highway linking Homs and Ash Sha’irat.

The ISIS attack took place just hours after US launched dozens of Tomahawk cruise missiles at the military airfield in Ash Sha’irat located 38 kilometers southeast of the city of Homs.

As a result of these strikes, the airfiled was destroyed and the Syrian Air Force lost a significant part of its capabilities to provide fast air support to its forces operating against terrorists in the northern Hama countryside and along the Homs-Palmyra highway.

    Well coordinated attack as expected…

      My conclusion: This subterfuge(i.e. attack) on a spurious pretext had probably been planned by Trump & Mattis, way back in January, perhaps a few days before Trump’s inauguration. This was absolutely not spontaneous but a meticulously pre-planned attack. I conjecture that out of experience, mark my words.

    Syria falsely accused of using chemical weapons and the result is an illegal attack by the US then maybe they should manufacture chemicals and drop it on the Turks and US who are occupying illegally Syrian territory. Consequences are the same at least then the US and Coalition don’t have to fabricate a lie.
    Syria has subs so why hasn’t Syria sent those subs out and sunk those boats that fired the missiles?

      the syrians probably didn’t expect a us atttack. and the syrians didn’t want a full scale war.

      • Rodger

        The Syrians didn’t want any kind of war.

          The impetus for the tomahawk cruise missiles was the use of serin has on innocent civilians.

            Bollox!

            …and the Earth is flat. (Yawn)
            On a second thought, or on a bright side, Sheikh al Trump has sorted out domestic problems – as he promised, brought manufacturing jobs back home, and decided to celebrate his accomplishments in such an extravagant way – and he tends to show off, which is not a secret – by a firework of a salvo of Tomahawks. (Yawn)

    He can take that MAGA bullshit and SHOVE IT UP HIS ASS…

    Hello Mr one term president…

    • Tyrant Fashister

      He fucking lied to his base.Fuck Trump the traitor !

      • Solomon Krupacek

        you were naiv

          Trump’s base generally has shit for brains. They never bothered to check out his past as shady businessman and vulgar wannabe rich snob. He got caught and heavily fined for using illegal alien workers, hired legal foreign workers instead of hiring local residents where unemployment was high and had no qualms about refusing to pay subcontractors when a project was completed. Trump just entered the primary to promote himself and his brand then stayed in the race when he actually started to win one state after another. I voted for the short fingered vulgarian since Clinton is a political whore that can’t be trusted. I figured the GOP dominated House and Senate would keep Trump from really screwing things up.

      Mr. half-term President…

    There was no rationale for assad to bomb with chemical weapons, assuming he has any.

    The nation’s calling for regime change are accusing assad without an investigation.

    The attack has hampered the SAA ability to fight and aids both militants in Idlib and isis against Palmyra.

    It seems trump has joined the saudis in the war, and putin is in a very vulnerable position.

    Tillerson says this was a one time warning. But he also says he’s putting together a coaltion (with UK, France, turkey or kurds, and possibly israel and Saudi) to invade syria and drive out assad, but that coalition won’t begin until after isis is defeated.

    shit, i hope SAA can repel any new terrorist advances and air support can be reestablished

    • Bill Wilson

      It’s been reported that the US informed Russia and Assad ahead of time so they could remove men and equipment before the strike plus the airbase was basically a boneyard for worn-out jets awaiting repairs. The missiles just hit buildings and hangers so the strips were unharmed and quickly cleared off for use.
      Then there’s the 30+ missiles that didn’t hit the base. I have a sneaking suspicion that the US had worked out a deal with the Russians and Assad that if they could hit that base to shut up the West then they’ll send a in a few dozen more to hit ISIS targets selected by the SAA and Russians.
      Now lets consider where ISIS attacked shortly after the base was hit. The only reason for them to launch an assault there would be to punch a hole in the SAA defenses so their trapped units could try escaping to Lebanon, which isn’t that far away and possibly could’ve been reached if the SAA had few units stationed along their way.

    D. Trump are you stupid or what ?

    • Strod

      He’s just cocky and thinks he can survive anything, that’s why he’s acting erratically. He hasn’t faced the music yet. When that happens he’ll have to come his senses. Kushner & Soros are still doing business together. Alexei Pushkov was quite right about him.

  • Thegr8rambino

    i heard daesh attempt to retake the oil fields near palmyra failed hahahah nice

    • Bill Wilson

      They may be stuck and are trying to get out. It’s not hard to block the use of roads since a well-placed bomb can make one impassable.

    Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts – Winston Churchill

  • Basu Deb

    It appears that Trump did not even consult the CIA.

  • gustavo

    CIA-Pentagono coordinate all ISIS and anexas fighting, nothing strange about this. But I do not see Russia answer ! Its planes can vaporize all terrorists at once, if Russia would want to. There will be so many red lines that it will look like red carpet !

    The is a open communication line between the terrorist and Trump administration.
