    How the fuck did they allow this to happened. There are some groups of guerillas driving around Sinai for two years now and they started to intervene few months ago. What the hell is wrong with these ppl… Same goes for Iraq. They are playing with pockets now, they didn’t take advantage of low Isis morale after Mosul fell; leaving Syria border so the mother fuckers to drive around and destroy check points because of it. What the hell are they playing? Now Lebanon let Isis indoctrinated fantastics to leave for deir ezzor country side with fucking green buses instead of jailing them. Really ?

      As it is .. you can see how dangerous they are. SAA is spread out trough the desert and they are taking advantage of that focusing on concentrated attacks with group of 100 ppl in small check points. And now Lebanon mother fuckers releses 300 of those monkeys… I would fucking bind those mother fuckers together and blow them up… Now they are playing tourist – driving around Syria..

        The US got mad because they were sending them to an area they have their eye on the border of Syria Abu Kamal , so the US bombed them. Thought it would be good tit for tat when the US let ISIS go to Aleppo , US is just a bunch of hypocrites.

      Israel wanted ISIS having free rein in the region , why the Tunnels from the Israeli border are better built and wider. Smuggling tunnels like these are too small and can be spotted when in heavy use. Israel needs to send more ISIS members there but Syria is not cooperating with them and being nasty by killing most of them now.

      They need to destabilize Egypt so they can take control of the Sinai region , under occupation of ISIS.

      There is a limit on how many soldiers Egypt can have in the Sinai, it is part of an agreement when israel gave them Sinai back.
