The Iraqi Army and the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) have recently liberated 48 villages and Shuqqat Riyad Airbase from ISIS in the Hawija area west of Kirkuk city.  Now, the army and the PMU are working to further isolate the ISIS-held town of Hawija before starting to storm it.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies have repelled a major ISIS attack against Sukhna and launched an operation to secure the entire Palmyra-Deir Ezzor highway that had been recently cut off by ISIS units.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have captured al-Sa’ad village south of al-Suwar and advanced against ISIS northeast of Deir Ezzor city. The SDF has also advanced inside Raqqah city and captured new positions in al-Ferdaws district in the city center.

    • Look at this video, I swear to god, these SAA soldiers are not at all human.
      Look at how this SAA soldier is smiling even tho he lost his one arm, one leg and some part of his stomach.
      God bless SAA!
      They truly are superheroes fighting terrorists for the sake of protecting their people and their country.

          @gustavo … I thought you were against SAA …

          • gustavo

            Not at all, I am against the stupid tactics that Syrian generals are using. These people do not deserve being directed by those generals. Thanks to Russia, the SAA army has not collapsed and destroyed by ISIS.

            I am not against SAA too, but do not like Assad and his clique.

            I propose SA command to be taken over by Russia, maybe then there will be more common sense there, some more proffesionalism.

        Nice post, good to see a man changed by the horrors of war but so positive and a believer in his country and president.

        This soldier was not fighting only against the terrorists in Syria, he was also fighting for the hole world becouse he was fighting against the Zionists. Theese bastards are the real big terrorists in the world! Thank you brave soldier, thank you SAA, thanks to Russia and Iran, to the brave soldiers from Hezbollah.
