New photos showing Russian Special Operations Forces troops alongside with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the province of Deir Ezzor have appeared online.

Local sources from Deir Ezzor province report about increased Russian military involvement in the ongoing anti-ISIS operation on the ground.  Russian Special Operations Forces troops actively participate in battles against ISIS as forward air controllers, ATGM operators, and military advisers. Some experts link the major SAA gains against ISIS in central Syria with the increased Russian involvement.

Last weekend, the SAA and its allies reached the city of Deir Ezzor. Since then, government troops have been working to establish a secured corridor to the defenders of Deir Ezzor.

    Russia.
    The Hope of the world.

    Edgar Cayce.
    Famous US psychic.
    Certainly Russia has been the hope of Syria and has saved it.
    It will certainly be the only hope for Europe when ISIS and other jihadi terrorists launch their serious attack on European peoples and declare the Caliphate.
    its coming and Europe is sleepwalking straight in.

      You a right. I dont care that Nato calls Russia ex commies and other garbage…they kill headchoppers and that is good enough for me!

        Brother Ma
        A little research will show you that the ethnic ‘Russian’ people were the greatest victims of Communism.
        Relatively few such Russians were party to the Bolshevik Revolution.
        Relatively few Russians were actively involved in the worst excesses of Soviet Power.
        Stalin was not a Russian – he was a Georgian.
        When the wall came down the Russian people became free with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
        Yeltsin was a disaster – a US puppet but since that era we have seen Russian government for the first time and the strides they have made are enormous – and for the people.
        Solzhenitsyn spells out some truths.

          Yes i agree with you.That is why i said Nato calls them commies and i did not say that i or other people call them commies.

          In addition,it never ceases to amaze me that major countries always talk about how bad commies are when they want to push Nato agenda yet we all trade with and lap up investments from biggest existing ” commie” country out there…china!

          When we send business leaders and presidents to WTO organisation and all anti commie leaders in our countries outsourced all manufacturing to china…it seems that china s commieness does not bother them.They are blind to it then.

          Hypocrisy!

          • EmilyEnso

            Great point!!

        • Brother Ma

          Another little interesting fact..did you know Stalins real surname meant Jew- son like o’ donnell meaning son – of – donnell? However, i do believe that his ancestors , if jewish at all,must have converted many centuries ago..who knows maybe when georgia converted back in 400 s AD.?

          Also some of toughest jews are from caucausus and kurdish areas.They call them mountain or kurdish or caucasian jews and they have kept fighting headchoppers for centuries like Georgian christians of course. many of them went on to becone top generals and mossad chiefs in Israel.

          The US spent 500 million US in getting him elected in 1996 , just shows you who interferes in other countries elections. No country should be allowed to give any candidate money, but this has happens all the time.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Correct that NATO calls them ex commies , since NATO is becoming the Neo-Commies with their Marxism ideals.

      Russia is the best thing to happen to the Middle East in over a century. The Middle East as a result has a chance for real peace.

    The Russian Forces go where the Americans fear to tread :)

    Something really weird with that first image.

    • Brother Ma

      What’ s weird about it? Do you think the standing troops on armored car have been photoshopped in?

    • SOF

      I agree there appears to be some image tearing going on with the bumper reappearing. Someone did a poor clone-stamp job with photoshop.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Looks like the original image had them back further in the photo and the enlarged the image , probably because it was blurry and why you have it looking like that and a tear occurred.

    It is a Big luck Russia dont do as United States of Israel and train the Terroristas as ISIL / NusraFront etc

    Russia’s is the enemy of my enemy, therefore Russia is my friend!
    Russian foreign policy is what sets it aside from other nations! They are NOT the Soviet Union! In fact Putin fought against Soviets during the Russian political coup!
    People MUST and NEED to remember that before WW1 Russia was the MOST FREE and Liberal country in the world!
    It welcomed multiculturalism, it has still to this day the Worlds second biggest Mosque yet it is an Orthodox Christian nation!
    Peter the Great made perhaps the greatest city in the world in St Petersburg! People should really research this great man!
    Russia WAS the USA of past days! They were the most powerful nation in the world, the biggest and the richest, welcomed all religions, had freedom of speech and democracy!

    the Jewish Bolsheviks fucked all that up!

    This seems to have become a spec ops war, and the Russians are better at it. I suspect the fact that ISIS is losing so much ground is because US / Israeli / Saudi Spec Ops teams don’t appreciate being blown to bits by targeted strikes from the Russians, and they’re too scared to shoot at anything Syrian because of counter-battery fire.
