Support SouthFront

This map provides a general look at the military situation in southern Damascus. Syrian government forces are pressuring ISIS members in the areas of Taqadm and Hajr al-Aswad. Clashes are also ongoing in the area of the Yarmouk refugee camp.

On April 4, government forces captured a farm area west of Harj al-Aswad. However, the situation remains complicated and ISIS still has engouh capabilities to conduct counter-attacks.

I hope this war end this christmas


It’s probably still very much on by then. Idlib, Daraa/Golan and east of the Euphrates will take the longest. If only for the constant meddling of foreign powers in those areas. It could even be exacerbated by direct Israeli military intervention.

You can call me Al

What about Al-Tanf ?…. don’t know how Putin has the patience, I would have nuked it by now or dropped the Father of all bombs…..+ on Israel, Jordon and the UAE.

King Tudor777

Putin might solve it, as I hope he’ll do in Afrin/Al-Bab and in the Eastern shore of the Euphrates. If he couldn’t solve it, situation may become complicated…


To quote Lavrov – You have bad manners, for a Brit – ;-)

You can call me Al

Moi ?.

King Tudor777

Eastern Syria won’t be so long if the Tigers attack. However, the SDF may struggle east of the Euphrates. Dara’a had proven itself a very complicated front, as did Eastern Goutha(which was far easier than I expected), but there are the Israeli airstrikes there, which will make it boring(it’d be good if one more airplane is shot down). And above all, Idlib will of course be the hardest and longest front, and we have Turkey there.


That depends a lot of what Israel-USA-NATO have in mind. I do not think so.

klove and light

and i wanna win the lottery, have a supermodel i can fuck up her ass,

Oscar Silva Martinez

I would love to believe that, but I think this war will go on at least one more year

Richard M

FUKUS (France, UK, US) and SHIT (Saudis, Hashemites, Israel, Turks) will never allow that to happen. The war will morph into different versions, but it will not end.


SAA are hitting ISIS in the center of Hajar Al-Aswad Yarmouk pocket.

Richard M

The Orcs cannot hold out much longer. Maybe 48 hours, unless SHIT & FUKUS come to their rescue

R.D. Cheese

Exactly as I said above. It’s disgusting. That they have obtained for themselves such power that their citizens have NOTHING they can do to stop them is horrible.

I’d never heard the FUKUS and SHIT acronyms before. THANKS!!!!

It’s too bad that the PRIME DIRECTIVE prevents the aliens from sucking up all of our political leaders in to space, where they will FREEZE TO DEATH.

Richard M

Thanks. I actually coined the SHIT acronym after a bit of thought. The FUKUS one has been used on Yahoo and other sites for at least 5 years. I’d like to see our leaders marooned on Khan’s exile planet of Ceti Alpha VI to enjoy the climate and fauna! We citizens of the Free World live in an endless Kobayashi Maru test! It was a Sisyphean task defeating Hillzebub and her cabal, only to watch the boulder roll back to the bottom of the hill!


Richard, I can claim partial credit for FUKUS, although I initially used the acronym FRUKUS+Q (Qatar) in my Intsum postings on the war on Libya 2011

Richard M

There’s a guy on Yahoo who goes by Hezbollah Army of Light, or something similar. That’s where I saw the FUKUS acronym. Good job getting the acronym party going. Sometimes a first attempt sets the stage. I saw one guys rather cumbersome attempt at mocking Syrian Liberation Front (SLF), it only took me a moment to come up with Salafist Lamb Fuckers. Sorry for the vulgarity but I just love mocking the Orcs!

R.D. Cheese

The U.S. will not let it end, I’m sorry to say. My country is occupied by DEMONS–whether you take that figuratively or literally–that are in charge of the country. We citizens have no power–NONE. Voting is meaningless. We are a captive people. That is the reality.

Had I not allowed myself to wait until I’m now a senior citizen, I would have gotten out of here a long time ago. It’s disgusting. My taxes go to nothing but the murder of people of other countries. And every President campaigns on the same LIES of stopping war.

Trump DUPED his WORSHIPPERS (his followers), who worship him so much, that now they claim that, “Don’t worry!!! He has 5,000 U.S. troops in Syria, and is bombing Syria every day, because he’s playing 4th-dimension chess, and, see, we can’t understand what he’s doing because he’s SO smart.”

It’s disgusting. Every Presidential candidate fools the public–over and over and over and over again. The U.S. is a ruined country. And it took less than 242 years for it to destroy itself. It would take a literal miracle to save this joint. Don’t look for it.

Ron Wheeler

I second that, I have some nice hand-made gifts I would like to get out.

neil barron

So they can counter strike ! If I’m in a fight and the guy is bigger than I and pounding me into ground then I rally with a counter punch did I win? Yah another part of my brain is turned into mush.

You can call me Al

Yes mate you win. We’ll come and see you tomorrow again, come on now, try and get some more food through that straw !!. LOL


April 5, 2018 ???????


In fact Southfront has been hacked a couple of times by Israeli migrants. So you just take the meaning.

Ron Wheeler

Looked like perhaps time traveling.


Hajar Al-Aswad gone because that is surrounded from three directions. Left Taqadam and Yarmouk that will be next.

Richard M

Looks like some dyslexic editor read 2/4/18 as 4/2/18! Ah well. At least he got the year right! :D


Southfront hacking issue.


The Holocaust crimes committed by Zionist Israel to threaten Zionists to refuge to Palestine and create Israel. Zionists will do these crimes again and again in the world as long as the Washington and Europe support is with them. Zionist Israel are such criminals that have no humanity and no religion. They just disgust Jewish religion. Zionists are so tricky that they put their own crimes on others and clean themselves from their own crimes. What crimes Zionist Israel are doing in Palestine are not allowed in any religion.

Once the ISIS are is completely surrounded, flood the basements bring the ur77 and turn whats left into dog food.

Israeli terrorists have kidnapped Ahed Tamimi and her parents at midnight by gunpoints. Nobody knows where Israel have kept them hostage. Each year Israel kidnap thousands of adults and small kids from the streets and hold them hostage. Many of them Israel kill in fake combats. The US and UK brutal regimes have invaded Palestine and have held all Palestinians hostage for last 100years. They support brutality and terrorism in the Middle East. If Vietnam can be freed from American regime army then Palestine can also be freed from US and UK. Israel should go back to their native countries.


I haven’t heard that any news anchor or leader from a Muslim state have visited Palestine and Yemen or they have made any telephonic call to them that how life is their. They have ignored the Yemeni and Palestinian kids and the historic Aqsa Mosque. Either they scar or they take blood money. The Russian president Putin, Prime Minister and defence minister have visited Palestine. They are brave. All Muslim leaders and their news anchors are losers. God will punish them like Ex PM Nawaz Sharif the most c*r*upt and th*ef.


Yemen Explained: Saudi Coalition, Houthis and Famine

Yemen: On the brink of starvation – BBC News

How the Saudi Blockade is Starving Yemen
Oh my God small kids dying due to starvation. They have no food due to blockade …..

1. The Largest Humanitarian Disaster.
2. 8 Million People Hungary.
3. About 11,000 people killed.
4. About 50,000 people injured.
5. Entire villages and towns have been demolished and erased from the earth.

Russia, China and Pakistan could help to open blockade on Houthis, stop oppression and aggressions on them and send humanitarian aid in emergency. There is need of reconciliation between different groups. Saudis tell to Yemen nation that accept Hadi as president otherwise you all will die and nobody will know. Shame

How the Saudi Arabian prince lose their money. This will be a shame history.



Empire Files: How Palestine Became Colonized.
Before 1900 there were no Jew in Palestine but as British forces entered in Palestine so they brought Jews with themselves to Palestine. No to two state solution. Mahmoud Abbas should not do favour to Israel for two state solution in Palestine. There will be no peace in Palestine until complete removal of illegal European migrants (fake Israel) from Palestine. Mahmoud Abbas should not allow Israel on his land because that is a big threat to the surrounding countries in Middle East.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

im thinking the bottom 2 pincers of the yarmouk camp area controlled by daesh should split the pocket in 2
