A bus carrying soldiers and officers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was struck by an improvised-explosive device (IED) while it was passing near the town of al-Yadudah in western Daraa in the morning of July 17.

Pro-government activists said that at least five Syrian service members were killed and several others were injured in the blast, which completely destroyed the bus.

Al-Yadudah’s local fighters joined the reconciliation process in mid-2018 following the SAA’s large-scale military operation in southern Syria.

This was the second such attack in southern Syria this month. On July 13, an IED planted on the road between Busra al-Sham and al-Sahoah in eastern Daraa targeted a unit of the Russian Military Police. However, no one was injured or killed.

Opposition sources claim that these attacks and many before were carried out by new anti-government groups in southern Syria. However, local observers believe that terrorist groups, like ISIS and even Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), are trying to destabilize the situation in the region by carrying out such actions.

        It seems that most of the guys here don’t understand that there are actually Syrian rebels who want to overthrow Assad.
        They will always blame someone else – the Jews, the Americans, the Turks, the Europeans and recently the Russians too.

        • Concrete Mike

          One would have to be practically blind not to see rhat the rebels are were and always will be foreign backed!

          Just like you ad nauseaum say iran this iran that.

          More useless projection from a useless israeli supporter!

            As I wrote to you in the past, you are too stupid to understand the complexity of the Middle East.

          • Concrete Mike

            Oh really?
            Your the one crying iran boogeyman all day, the simplest of simple arguments, yet im the stupid one?

            You cant use simple arguments day in and day out, then when you get called out say, im too stupid to understand the complexity of the middle east?

            You live in a gingerbread house! Which is it food or shelter???

            I know very well whats going on in the middle east thank you.

            Im old enough to find out for myself thank you.

            You copy pasting arguments from american think tanks is not good enough.

            You have a confirmation bias and that bothers me.

            So stop posting shit if you dont like getting called out.

            Calling me stupid wont work, kettle calling pot blakc kinda scenario.

          Obviously you fell for the side track away from the content of Hillary’s emails. Emails that detail how the US State Dept smuggled weapons and Al Qaeda sniper operatives to “start the revolution”.
          You loved the John Brennan side track, “the Russians did it”.
          Maybe you should read the Rand Corporation’s plan for this immoral American war on Syria.

          • Free man

            It is clear that everyone is stirring up in Syria, and the Americans are experts in it.
            But what bothers me is that some people are playing the “blame game” rather than dealing with what is important. And what is important in my opinion is a cessation of the war and the rebuilding of Syria. Otherwise Syria will become Somalia like failed state. A state of crime gangs without a functioning central government.

          • Ronald

            That is what is planned, like Libya. The US pushed the Kurds south to take Raqqah, and then farther south to capture the oil fields. So now the US holds a third of Syria, everything east of the Euphrates, all on the pretense of “helping the Kurds”.
            What is important is the US withdraw from Syria, including Al Tanaf.
            You haven’t read the Rand plan.

          • Free man

            I think that all foreign forces should withdraw and leave Russia to stabilize Syria. Only the Russians are Accepted by the others (Except for the jihadists) and actually can do it.

    • Icarus Tanović

      Seem like that indeed. That crossed my mind at first look at these pictures and fingerprint. Good thinking.

    This was not US responsibility but if all leaders in Asia become pedophiles then definitely US will take action.

        Is he Canadian. Just because he uses a Maple Leaf and calls himself Toronto means nothing. What is for sure he is no friend of TLR nor would he know who the White Feller is.

    • Rob

      You forget Putin invited US forces to Raqqah which then US forces took all north and eastern Syria along with all significant oil and gas fields from Syrian nation.

      I don’t blame Russian forces rather I blame Putin for all these atrocities that done to Syrian nation.

      • Ronald

        Rob, where did you read that Putin invited US Forces to Raqqah ?
        Syria and Russia have been Allies for over 30 years, the US invited themselves, not Putin or any Russian.

        • Rob

          When Russia liberated Aleppo from US backed terrorists then Putin proclaimed that now Aleppo is free let see how America free Raqqah. On this message of Putin I was completely shocked.

          Then on pretext of eliminating terrorists from Raqqah, America and Israel eliminated Syrian nation from Syria.

          • Ronald

            Rob maybe you forgot.
            When SAA and Hezbollah were being helped by Russian air support in the liberation of Aleppo , the Americans were already bombing Raqqah, but without ground troops to back and hold any gains.

            The Kurds did not want to die taking that city as it was without a Kurdish population and far south of their traditional territory.
            The result was Raqqah was bombed back to Stone Age rubble.
            Raqqah was an ancient city, devoted to the Egyptian Goddess Isis.
            It was a premium heritage site, that bombing destroyed 5-10 thousand years of history.
            “Lets see how America free Raqqah” was a small part of Putin and Assad’s public protests against American involvement in Syria.
