Syrian Army Launches Large-Scale Combing Operation Between Raqqa, Homs & Deir Ezzor

Illustrative image

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) launched a new large-scale combing operation in the desert area between Raqqa, Homs and Deir Ezzor on April 16.

According to an official press release of the NDF media wing, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) is supporting the new operation.

In the course of the operation, the Syrian military will chase ISIS cells, destroy terrorist hideouts and remove mines and improvised-explosive devices (IEDs), which might have been planted by the terrorist group.

The new operation came after a series of deadly attacks that targeted personnel of the SAA and its allies. In the last two weeks, ISIS cells killed ten fighters of the al-Quds Brigade and four of the NDF in two separate attacks around the desert.

Hundreds of highly-experienced, well-armed ISIS fighters are reportedly hiding in the Homs desert. A recent report even suggested that the terrorist group’s leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, may be hiding there.

The new combing operation could limit ISIS’ activities around the desert. However, only a real offensive would end the terrorist group presence there.

    About time!

      about time what? Is not like they dont know where the terrorist are. Flying few helicopters around for few days does not solve the problem just waste re sources.

      • Ed

        It’s more than just flying helicopters around though isn’t it? Unless I misread the article! Also, they must have some idea where they are even if it’s a rough one. Otherwise, as you say, it would be a complete waste of resources, especially trying to cover an area that size.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          the article can say what ever they want to pass as news. But is not what is happening on the ground.

      • You can call me Al

        Sometimes, give your negativity a rest will you ?.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          you confuse truth with negativity . You are not very well informed maybe of syrian realities and what is going on backstage within the decision makers the last 6 months and who are they, are u. So stop assuming what I say is negative because it is not.

          SAA has been stopped doing anything of substance because it will no longer suit the ones who allegedly saved them, so think again before judging also be informed correctly.

          • You can call me Al

            Understood. Just chill a little, I am on your side.

    • DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

      Even SF admits (and said so often in last days) thath is is only a small limited Op. More for propaganda and moral of troops and people than a solution.
      Because of Idllib, SAA can not attack and finish off the Jihadis there, but also can not move those troops from Idlib to the desert because the Jihadis and their master Erdogan would use this chance..

  • JHK

    It would be hilarious if saa were to be swallowed up in AlBayda in Homs, because it would imply a Shia Hadith in isis’ favor.

    Already two have seemed to have happened in Syria very recently, like days.

    • You can call me Al

      Look at you, on your foster Mother’s computer !!. Tosser.

      • JHK

        Im like 43, and youre likely a britam tosser.

        americunts and eurocucks cant be trusted.

        • DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

          But a Jihadi loving Japanese that loves Erdogan can be trusted? You can not even trust your own mind..

          • JHK

            Ive been to Turkey and Iran so I know exactly what Im talking about unlike many posers on this forum.

        • You can call me Al

          hahaha, I like that, nice response. Bravo.

          Truce and start again on a better footing ?.

          • JHK

            Sure, but I seriously dont trust any westerners, us can euro or auzzie, even if they say theyre Christian or Muslim.

            I only trust Axis countries.

          • You can call me Al

            Well that is a new one on me. If it is any consolation, I live on the border with the big European one.

            If now, fair play because I do not really care.

          • JHK

            I can take that for as Axis. Maybe Russian.

            And actually I have an idea for that Area that both Russians and Muslims dont mind going into that area to push out the west.

    “…A recent report even suggested that the terrorist group’s leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, may be hiding there…”

    Wasn’t he also reportedly killed six or seven times, already? This guy must be a vampire – he just won’t stay down. On the other hand, he couldn’t possibly be a vampire. He was sitting on the beach in Tel Aviv a week ago sipping a Pina Colada with his Mossad buddies. Except instead of a little decorative pink umbrella in his glass, Baghdadi had a little ISIS flag. Netanyahu came down and started yelling at of them get off the beach and go vote for him a couple more times. Baghdadi refused, ordered another Jihad Colada and continued searching for infidel crabs to behead. Snackbar!

  • gustavo

    Sleeping terrorists cells have been trying to wake up sleeping SAA army. This is not a waking up, it is just re-ordenation to have a better sleep.

  • JHK

    There are two Hadith that imply Baghdadi is Mahdi(as), or that at least Imam Al-Mahdi considers(as) isis as part of his, despite their premptive Khilafah.

    1. Trying to kill Mahdi(as) even claiming hes killed but Mahdi(as) keeps escaping.
    2. Trying to kill Mahdi(as) again but get swallowed up in the desert AlBayda.

    So its funny how hard saa try to end isis (but realistically they will always be around, and their end could only happen with an agreed absorbtion back into AlQaeda.

    • Concrete Mike

      Their end.will come once the west stops supporting salafist thugs for their own meager political gains.

      All the other stuff is bs to.hide this very fact.

      A good day to you.

    helicopter sweeps is how this should have been done in the first place!
