On November 4, Russian Tu-22M3 strategic bombers once again struck ISIS terrorists near Syria’s al-Bukamal, the last city controlled by the terrorist group in Syria.

According to reports, the strikes were aimed at weapons and ammunition depots as well as command centers belonging to ISIS. This was the fourth day in a row when the strategic bombers hit terrorists in the area. Previously, Tu-22M3 conducted strikes on ISIS on November 1, November 2 and November 3. Russia’s attack submarine Kolpino also launched six Kalibr cruise missiles on ISIS positions in the area on November 3.

The ongoing bombing campaign take place amid the upcoming Syrian Army operation to liberate al-Bukamal, located on the strategic highway between the city of Deir Ezzor and Iraq’s capital, Baghdad, which would be launched soon.

    “The ongoing bombing campaign take place amid the upcoming Syrian Army operation to liberate al-Bukamal” – surely it is being co-ordinated as a duel attack, between Syria and Iraq ?.

    But hey-ho, is going to be a goodie; say safe lads, you are on the right side of history, now annihilate every single last one of them.

      Victory here will be sweet indeed for the SAA and their allies. There are reports that Iraqi forces have entered Syria to block any US aggression against the border crossing.

        Yep apparently so, they blocked the SDF racing to get their first. I bet the Yanks are not too happy, I would assume they are already pressurising Baghdad to remove them and I hope to God, Baghdad tells them where to stick their pressure.

    I wouldn’t be surpsied if they continued these bombing runs for another week. Rats are getting cornered in and have nowhere to run.

      In the coming week there will be nothing left to bomb of ISIS

    Sa’ad Hariri (the Lebanese prime minister) resigned while out of the country and in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in front of TV.
    He repeated MBS’s accusations, almost word for word, and seemed nervous. (his televised resignation footage is deleted, I’ll try to find another one)

    Is it another scheme to cause chaos in Lebanon and force Hezbollah to go back?

    • as

      That sure seems fishy. Do you know who is the current ruling party and their current situation ?

      • Garga

        His resignation came after he promised cooperation with Hezbollah and other parties for Lebanon’s stability. I guess Riyadh has magical weather which affects one’s decisions and promises.

        There’s no majority. Here’s a wiki page about Lebanon’s parliament:

        If you read Arabic, the parliament’s website:

      Can you provide me with link that can explain the Lebanese current geopolitics ?

      • Garga

        I’m unable to find a single article who explains what you seek. It requires a few hours of searching and reading. Sorry.

        Lebanon is a very beautiful and ancient country with smart and handsome people, but it’s politics is extremely complicated. While officially it’s a parliamentary democracy, high offices are “reserved” for ethnic/religious groups: the president has to be Maronite Christian, PM has to be a Sunni, the speaker of parliament is a Shi’a and deputy PM and deputy SoP are Eastern Orthodox Christians.

        • as

          Seems likely it’s in Arabic then if those exist at all. Even in the deep web i can’t find any in English.
          Btw is there a reason for the order of things ? Christian as president and below ?

          • Garga

            The reason is to ensure that the majority (relative majority, that is Shi’a) does not cease all the power by votes and every group of ethnicity and religion have their share of power.
            It’s a good mechanism in theory but in practice it produces numerous problems, as it’s almost impossible to decide on anything. For example, in a democracy important decisions are made using voting. If the majority of the votes (usually +%50) is obtained, then they act accordingly because they have both the decision and means to do. In a reserved system you can’t reach a decision and even if you do, it’s not guaranteed you can act because the minority opposed to this decision have means to stop it.

            That’s why it’s overly complicated in Lebanon and every move requires endless debates and sessions and years of planning and execution.
            What makes it worse is other countries who want to stop the process if they feel it’s against their interests, just like now, which Saudis felt the reconciliation between Hariri and Hezbollah and their cooperation does not benefit them, so with Hariri’s resignation there will be another round of chaos and everything will freeze for a very long time.

            It’s relatively good conditions. You should have seen Beirut in the ’70s. Even harmless traffic accidents were solved using guns.

      Resigning in the KSA on the KSA’s Wahabi islamist TV shows that he was no more than a powerless Saudi puppet…
