Syian Army Cleared Deir Ezzor Desert From ISIS: General Command

File image

On June 27, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) General Command announced in an official statement that units of the SAA backed by the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAA) had cleared the Deir Ezzor desert – over 5,200km2 – from ISIS. The desert is located between the western and southwestern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

“The complete desecration of Deir Ezzor and reaching to the Iraqi border confirms the high efficiency of the Syrian Arab fighter and the insistence of the General Command of the army to pursue the remnants of terrorist organizations, of different names, until the cleansing of the entire Syrian soil of the abomination of terrorism and its regional and international supporters,” the SAA General Command said in the official statement, according to SANA.

The SAA launched its military operation in Deir Ezzor desert on June 20 and advanced in the southern and southwestern Deir Ezzor countryside securing 1,200km2. Later on June 25, the SAA secured 1,800km2 between western al-Bukamal and “point 400” on the Syrian-Iraqi border.

The remaining fighters of ISIS likely withdrew towards their last positions in the Homs desert. According to Syrian pro-government sources, more than 1,000 fighters and senior commanders of the terrorist group are currently hiding there.

The SAA, Iranian-backed forces and the Russian Aerospace Forces will likely launch a larger military operation in the upcoming months to eliminate ISIS troops in the Homs desert.

    God bless the SAA,in their fight against satanic zionists.

    This would be about half of the desert pocket west of the river. Syrian Civil War Map isn’t showing it yet. But if you use the provincial borders it works out to about half of the pocket being cleared.

    • You can call me Al

      There was and is NO civil war.

      • RichardD

        It’s the name of the website.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Nope all of it completely total S&D operation by 5TH Legion and Hezbollah units along to the border too.

  • Romulus Nicola

    So how many rats were extincted?

    • BMWA1

      Unfortunately, rat farm at Al Tranf will send more rats.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Between 95%-99% rest fled back to Al Tanf and like the terrorists already there will be a slow process of elimination.

    • gustavo

      At least 1,000 terrorists were killed, and many more went to Al Tanf. After Daraa, Al-Tanf is next.

  • Lena Jones

    Wowzyeffingyaaaay!!!

    Bravo Syria and ALL their brothers-in-arms!

  • Barba_Papa

    Call me a cynic (please do, anything but a hasbra or paid troll), but how can you secure a giant desert like that? It’s not like the SAA and allies have manpower to spare. There’s a reason why until they let ISIS have it. It’s too big and too easy for a relative small force to hide in and slip by any patrols. Unless they comb the desert with a massive force looking for every nook and cranny how can they say they kicked out ISIS.

    Virtual cookie for anyone posting a pick of Spaceballs troop actually combing the desert. ;-)

    • Lena Jones

      Russian/Syrian/Iranian Radars and drones are employed 247 all over liberated Syria.

    • You can call me Al

      No worries about the question, it is one I ask myself constantly.

      As Lena states – “The drones” + patience I guess + good defence around it with snipers.

      Basically, in my view, starve the bastards.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Make them thirsty let them eat all they want you get thirstier for water all the time.

        • You can call me Al

          Good point – laden the food with salt.

    • jorge

      Thirst there kills a guy in two days (sometimes in one). And that desert is an excellent place to create and train unities of special hunters (also called commandos).

    • Attrition47

      Where to the occupants of the desert get water, food and fuel? They can’t lie doggo unless someone does the delivering and that can’t be done in secret. I bet that the Syrians and their allied had been reconnoitring the area ever since it was enveloped.

    • hamster

      You are a zionist/colonialist/kleptomaniac/settlerist/paid hasbara troll, land thief and embassy boy.

      Sorry, I couldn’t help myself :)

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Project much!!

        • hamster

          Only if I am getting paid lots of demonic shekels by satanic and extremely hellish Satanyahu. Gotta feed the family and pay the bills somehow. :)

        Nah hes a fence sitter. He has been like that for years….i like what he says most of the time.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      CYNIC!!!!

      • Barba_Papa

        Thanks! :D

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          It’s always good to hedge your instincts when so close to Al Tanf and Zulq bases can never trust the US fully as they are back on accepting Russia and the 6 have managed to defeat ISIS and NUSRA front ,FSA are being esily defeated without the US. Trump is allegedly talking rumors of a “New deal of the century”.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Those that are doing the hunting are 5th Legion ,SSNP ,NDF and Hezbollah with PMU to squeeze from the other side on the Iraqi border.

      • Barba_Papa

        NICE!!!! You win a virtual cookie! :-)

    • Bob

      Armed factions operate in groups and require open transport and logistics lines to remain operational. There may well be few cells remaining in hiding – but if majority of force withdrew to Homs desert any remaining cells would simply be holed up in dug-outs without support lines or means of movement. They would be disparate and isolated in vast space without secure transport lines to access food, water and munitions – or to retreat – let alone try and operate against SAA. Under these conditions any hold-outs would be tactically stranded and ineffective in a non-critical area.

  • King Tudor777

    Bravo SAA! I’ve talked about for a long time, and finally, this month, a real operation was started! Destroy all the rats, enemies of the Syrian people, bomb and starve them all! HTS and its moderate terrorists allies from FSA are next! God bless the SAA!

    And did not crap up!

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    this is very nice news to hear, and much needed, after having been fired, and my friend i liked lying to me and leaving me for another guy

    • Attrition47

      Given the sack and dumped at the same time? Condolences.

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        Yes, thank you my friend. I hope she comes back to me someday. We could have been so much more :(

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          You can’t nice her, total 180 (ignore) block all calls and messages , then see how she responds if nothing your better off without her most people in that type of situation are remember total opposite and be indifferent but cordial to her. that will help you get yourself in a better place.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Ha, I wish she was calling or texting me. But yes, you are right. I just can’t believe she threw away everything we had just like that. Its like a bad dream I just wanna wake up from

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Don’t pay any attention to her at all, you don’t want to know anything she does or care about it just hurts more when you do. The important thing is to focus on you and as they say is the best revenge is being a better and stronger confident you. Sucks to be in this position but all one can do is grow and do things for yourself.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Yea, ive been studying to get my IT certification and passed my first test yesterday :) I hope I pass the remaining 3 all on the first try and find another better job

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            That’s good industry to be in for growth potential and hope you pass too ! Should open you to travel and your growth in the field.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Yes I hope so, thank you!! I was getting tired of the job I was at, it was also in IT but the girl I was with told me about the job and it always would remind me of her and I just couldn’t take it anymore. Plus it was like right down the street from where she lived. So I had to force myself to go there, and I wound up being late a lot, and I guess my boss realized that I was more interested in studying for my tests than the job and I guess he didn’t like that. But I could not see myself staying there much longer. So in a way I am happy he fired me, but not happy that I don’t have a better job to go to right away. But I know I will find another one eventually.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            You should get with a good support group to deal with the break up and hopefully you can network with them to help you get a job in your newly learned field. Good luck hope for the best for you!

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)
