Syrian Army Makes Rapid Advance Towards Siyasiyah Bridge, Further Tightens Sieges On ISIS Units In Northern Deir Ezzor

Donate

Pro-government forces, led by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 5th Assault Corps, made a rapid advance against ISIS north of Deir Ezzor city.

The SAA and its allies took full control over Hatla al-Sharqiyah village and pushed towards the Siyasiyah bridge on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. If government forces secure the bridge area, they will further tighten the siege on ISIS units in the northern part of Deir Ezzor city.

Controlling the Siyasiyah bridge area, the SAA will be able to cut off a notable part of the supplies to the terrorists inside the city.

At the same time, reports appeared that ISIS is redeploying vehicles and fighters from the frontline against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near al Suwar and al Khajjah northeast of Deir Ezzor city to the frontline against government troops on the eastern and western banks of the Euphrates.

          Saint Peter at the gates of heaven told me, that a special call to all the virgins available was made, to catch up as soon as possible with the numerous expected martyrs of ISIS , … Unfortunately for them there are currently only male virgins available.

      LOL, very good.

    It would be great if they vacated Deir Ezzor city towards the SDF lines. :)

    • Terence Silvestre Jr.

      They would be wonderful and fair, but unfortunately very seldom does a sponsored terrorist group like ISIS come to disobey and rebel himselft against its sponsor and founder, I fear.

      • Kira Binkley

        The sponsor and founder being the U.S.? I got big news for you…

      • Jens Holm

        Its years ago they did and You seemes to forget, that many did.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          ISIS is just what it is Israeli Secret Intelligence Service these are the Mestarivem who run then they could be either military or intelligence but Avi sends the orders.

          • Jens Holm

            Its only or almost only the classic attitude: If You enemies kill each other or like that, they have no time to kill You and also lack of ressources for it.

            I see israel actice fight Hesbollah and Assads when they help. Because of the many extra weapons that fight/strike is extra too.

            At Golan ISIS are fine buffers and are helped to be the best they can for it. Could be small contacts. Im sure its under “small”.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            I see Israel being destroyed as was foretold but many forget ancient prophecies and ignore them , just as Nostradamus warned about Histe being the destruction of the world as they came as they crossed the water, many are foreigners and they will bear a banner of Black and will be like savages , three of the Quatrains of his are correct here.

          • RichardD

            Israel is already being destroyed on paper. The Balfour Declaration and San Remo Resolution have both been partially or completely vacated by UNSC Resolution 2334 depending on how you want to interpret it. And the military planning and preparations are being put in place to disarm Israel and replace it with something that works better.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            With Jawlaan HTS is being eliminated from the area once there is one less terrorist group then the next one is gone. Then they can make Israel comply with the unconditional treaty and return it back to Syria.

    • Kell

      Yep, funny how that never happens.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Its not time for them to Go Home yet :)
      Mad Dog Mattis is not happy and Israel as always is Deeply Deeply Worried.

    • Jens Holm

      They already do according to, where several 10.000 of refugees are on the move and UN tbeing there trying to help.

      • PZIVJ

        Good to get the civs out of the battle zone.
        I am under no illusions that ISIS will retreat from their few remaining urban areas.
        This is bad news for SAA advance. Best to encircle and apply pressure, while taking other areas with much less effort.

  • Dr. Ronald Cutburth

    After the war we can watch videos of the Syria re-construction and the big parties.

    • Terence Silvestre Jr.

      This is my daily prayer. May God grant us this petition, sooner rather than later.

  • Deo Cass

    The Syrian government forces need to move fast in the other direction, towards the oil and gas fields especially the Omar fields.

    • Moussa Saab

      The Syrian government needs to move fast in EVERY direction!

    • Jens Holm

      The cant. There is a looong list of reasons for that. No reason to take Mullah Omar and the other wells.They are not theieved like You and are learned to share according to their political programs.

      So if anything its better to let SDF take them, so the production can be shared in the future instead of given among friends in Damaskus.

      • Tarciso Ribeiro

        what a hell you talking about..

      • Bob

        Shared with whom exactly – the US SOF that are actually driving advance toward them?!

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          The word is that ISIS is moving tanks from the fronts against SDF and moving towards Basireyah and Mayadin to attack the SAA this was reported 23 hours ago.

          • Kira Binkley

            Moving from where? Deir es-Zor?

          • Bob

            No, as understand it, ISIS are moving laterally on eastern side of river – turning forces away from SFD south-eastern advance contact lines and relocating them orientated at SAA positions on western side of river – in alignment with ISIS controlled Mayadin that SAA has reached and is surrounding. This, of course, appears to be a blocking maneuver to stop or delay SAA crossing river at Mayadin and gives US SOF and SDF tag-alongs more time to try for Omar oil fields with far less resistance. It suggests that ISIS and US/SDF at are not in serious conflict and cutting deals.

          • Kira Binkley

            Confusing. And challenging. The confused president (Trump) will be challenged. Who will he back now?

          • Bob

            Trump has little say in this at present – he has politically given US military leadership a great deal of scope for independent action – so the Pentagon has control of this situation at present and they wholly maintain their virulent anti-Syrian stance and goals.

          • Kira Binkley

            Then the Pentagon are the American-Stupids. And Trump will say whatever he thinks will bring America prestige. As a strong man, not a wise one. Like Kaiser Wilhelm II.

          • Bob

            Interesting comparison and parallel – as indeed last Kaiser was a mouthpiece – and Ludendorff and Hindenburg ran the actual war.

          • Kira Binkley

            Kaiser Wilhelm was interested in rebuilding the Holy Roman Empire, not to be called as such of course. Bismark did a hell of a lot to unite the German overlords; Wilhelm proceeded to enlarge the union. Thus his declaration of war on Serbia, then Russia, when he figured the Tsar was mobilizing. Empire building, like Trump.

          • Bob

            Just of note – it was the Austro-Hungarians that initially declared war on Serbia, and German allies who followed suite, triggering the Russian mobilization. It is little commented upon in western history, but the Austro-Hungarians waged a vicious war against the Serbian state with an open policy to decimate the country, and Austro-Hungarian forces attacked Serbian civilians – as desperate response the majority of the northern and central Serbian population packed bags and marched south, en masse, with a huge civilian death rate due to deprivations.

          • Kira Binkley

            Yes, you are right. But the Austrian Hungarian empire pushed for that, knowing the Kaiser was behind them. Have you ever read the Serbian Blue Book for that month in 1914?

            There were so many turning points leading up to World War I, and I have often wondered that if the men in power fully realized the extent of the destructive capabilities of the new weaponry, they may have made a different choice. Maybe, maybe not. Power is a strange emotive device.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Read below, that’s what exactly they are doing and have been doing since Kobani. They are also moving them out from Raqqa to attack towards Deir Ezzor City, they are deceptive. I check out all these YPG/YPJ twitter feeds they put out a ton of propaganda.

      • ruca

        Bullshit alert!

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Keep talking like a danish bandit sounds about right supporting Kidnapping, drug trafficking murdering thieves. They will see their end and Syria will regain all of it’s land from the genociders and US proxy terrorist groups SDF, Daesh, why does less than 10% steal something that isn’t theirs as they are just kidnapping and thieving Gypsy scum.Best to let Syria run it and all of NORTHERN SYRIA !

  • Kell

    Good stuff, slow and steady.

  • dutchnational

    Interesting report.

    SDF related tweeter reported, unconfirmed, an IS night assault on the SAA pontoonbridge.

    Curious.

    We will know more the coming day, but it sounds weird and contradictory.

    • Lone Wolf

      night attack from ISIS … thats odd indeed … night vision goggles … ?

  • RamboDave

    The bridge that the article is talking about was destroyed about a year ago by the US Coalition. ISIS has been limited to using small boats to cross the river. The only thing that this does is to partially cut off the Kurds from making a deal with ISIS and taking the East bank of the city.

    Likewise, the bridge down in Mayadin is also destroyed. The SAA should be going Southeast from Khasham, their present position. See the red arrow on the map attached.

    • RamboDave
      • RTA (Bob or Al)

        The military engineers can build new pontoon style for heavy machinery in a day, forget the bridges in place it doesn’t matter and probably would take more time in removing the booby traps.

        • Jens Holm

          Kind of joke again. Isnt it.

          A bridge from Russia to show how great Damaskus and its military forces are.

          You havnt even taken DEZ.

          The whole world see how stupid You are and Your realtions to honor and respect hardly exist.

          • Kell
          • RichardD

            It wouldn’t surprise me if Jens Holm is a psychiatric patient. There’s more than one here that either have a very poor grasp of the language, or have a screw loose, or both.

          • ruca

            Both in this case. Jen Pasaki I assume.

          • ruca

            Jen Pasaki is that you?

          • Jens Holm

            My house isnt white.

          • RichardD

            The Syrian government coalition is advancing on every front. You should honor and respect that.

          • RTA (Bob or Al)

            That’s pretty good, since I am British, is the bridge from Moscow to London or Manchester ?.

            Who is YOU in “You havnt even taken DEZ.” ?.

        • dutchnational

          DeZ pontoon bridge took, acc to Ru, two days to build and they had to wait for a week or so for the elements to arrive. For a second bridge, likely a longer wait.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            It’s already here along with more troops and they built the span in ten hours.

          • RichardD

            SF reported on a bridge north of DE a week or two ago. But isn’t showing any government footprint or beach head on the east side of the river there.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The location was never disclosed so they may have a secret operation ongoing and are going to pull like they did in going to the border. They are about 55km from Al Tanf with the 5th down there, they might be trying to push the US out of the region.

            Find I can’t stand YPG/YPJ Pro Kurdish supporters they all seem brainwashed by Ocalan, such a very screwed up man. Think we might be seeing Nostradamus’ 3 quatrains about Hister actor or clown beetle much like Trump, fleuve which is a term more for river bestes beasts or savages there is a part about the Black occupation. Maybe this is what Nostradamus was talking about

          • RichardD

            I know what Nostradamus quatrains are, but I’m not familiar with what they contain. I have been to the Semjase Silver Star Center and studied some of the Meier material purportedly using Plejaren time forward viewing technology. I took this picture there:

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Reading and trying to understand old latin and 19th century Swiss is a little different than today’s German a bit more lyrical and as older generations of Swiss marvel at hearing the old Swiss.

            One part of the quatrains discussed the occupiers would use the symbol of Black and another spoke about recovering the Republic, just sounds to eerily close to what is going on.

          • RichardD

            I took a course in telepathy taught by Dr. Steven Greer. The brain is an electrical transceiver that can be used for communication purposes. I’ve done some work on accessing the innernet. But it isn’t to the stage where I can use it for technology advances or intelligence gathering.

            The Kurds have a character by the name of Abo Jijo and he worships Barzani. Watched the video of him on twitter made me laugh yellow suit a yellow horned hat praising Barzani too much yellow going on. Found that on Ivan Sidorenko’s Twitter account good posts there on Syria see some of his stuff posted here. Watched a new video on the shooting in Vegas first bit you can hear 2 guns one definitely belt driven both different patterns no bullet drop or echo yet.

    • PZIVJ

      The SAA has been held up at Khasham by ISIS resistance for quite a while now. Hopefully this will change soon. :) These heavy bridges usually have only gaps in them, that can be repaired by engineers.

    • Jens Holm

      It look likes some videogame from another planet.

      • RichardD

        What does your brain scan look like compared to a normal person, a mess?

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      The SAA had 50% captured of Mayadin and are attacking on the flanks leaving them only one way to retreat. SAA are also preparing to attack Abukmal as the IAF are preparing to attack Al Quaim more Russian troops and equipment on the way. The SAA has pushed from the east bank now at DE.

      • dutchnational

        Acc to Al Masdar, SAA had to, at least partially, retreat from Mayadin.So instead of taking the city, they advanced backwards. But still advancing luckily.

        • RichardD

          Compared to the Jew world order terrorists the Syrian government is advancing everywhere and your dream of Syria losing slips away everyday.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Haven’t heard any different from Alexander and he is at the front their covering it,even southfront is half a step in behind, they report about 12-14 hours later. Mine is from sources on the ground just as their are sources in the Assadophobes in the SDF. They will report soon on the advance for the border from both the SAA and ISF.

          • Moussa Saab

            Can you send me a links to your sources?

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Try going to Leith Fadel’s twitter account and then find his links you can go to the YPG twitter feeds and bookmark them yourself , way too much work and copying.

  • RichardD

    The Syrian government coalition, including Russia and Iran, have the option of adding troop strength if needed. And some is currently on the way to DE:

          I like SDF better. They have very few and therefore try to keep them intact.

      • Jens Holm

        Look of them. Seemes afraid to leave the water.

    • Lone Wolf

      What are the extra Russian deployment for I wonder … are they Russian marines … ? what’s their mission … ?

      • RichardD

        My guess would be to help secure the oil field east of the river and to work on setting up a peer level air defense hub in DE once a buffer zone is established free of enemy ground weapons.

        • Tudor Miron

          My guess is that when they said that they would not let US forces to hinder advance of SAA they did mean it. After assasination of our general (which was done in retaliation of substantial number of US SOF killed together with their HTS and ISIS puppets in RuAF strikes) it’s gloves off now. Many don’t know but this last Sunday, Marina Zaharova delivered a speach which was missed by most “politologists”. The speach was formally about RT but the message to NWO was clear – “If you don’t want to play by the rules than it is your choice. Now don’t moan when sh$t hits the fan”

          • RichardD

            Jewmerica is playing a very dirty game in Syria and has been from the beginning. Which is why there was overwhelming public opposition to Obama starting a new war in Syria with a mass cruise missile strike after the false flag chemical weapons attack there.

            Many Americans have figured out that they’ve been denied the truth and force fed Jew lies from cradle to grave by this evil cult, and now they want to get rid of Jews. Like so many others over thousands of years have, and rightly so. A Jew free future for our planet is a better future for all of humanity.

            This article helps explain why so many Americans dislike Jews and want them out of our lives:

            The government is advancing in all areas. That’s what’s important. It’s primarily the Syrian’s war. The Russians and others are helping because it’s in their interest. But they have other responsibilities also that have nothing to do with Syria and have to be considered and taken care of also.
