Syrian Army Repelled Attack By ISIS Cells East Of Palmyra

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

Units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) repelled an attack by ISIS cells in the area east of Palmyra in the province of Homs. According to pro-government sources, the SAA eliminated at least 3 militants. Casualties among pro-government forces were also reported.

The desert area in the provinces of Homs and Deir Ezzor is flooded by ISIS cells. The terrorists are using the no-man zone around the US-controlled area of al-Tanf as a safe haven and a ftoohold for further operation.

The complicated situation in northwestern Syria and the continuing security operations in southern Syria do not allow Damascus to allocate the needed forces to deal with this threat in the nearest future.

    I suspect that the UK SAS is training the tactics employed by the Long Range Desert Group and SAS in WW2 during the desert campaign in Libya.

    The greatest weakness of the terrorists is Syrian surveillance from the sky and heavens that were not as advanced as they have become today.

    I suspect this a primary reason for Israels attacks on Iranian drone capabilities in Syria.
    The US Coalition of Terror satellites are also able to track SAA movements on the ground.
    One way to thwart this by the SAA is constant movement without creating temporary desert bases AND/OR creating dummy bases to bait the US terror gangs in my humble opinion.

    Its hard work for the troops, but a strategy that might work. The SAA and allies will have already studied the WW2 LRDG exploits I suspect :)

    All of these terrorist forays hope to return to base, so constant observation of all escape routes is also paramount as this is when the terrorists are most vulnerable

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      russians have satellites too, hopefully they warn SAA of when US is doing something to counter/attack SAA movements

      • FlorianGeyer

        I would think so, however the satellite numbers of NATO far exceeds that of Russia.

        • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

          dont need that many, i dont think

          • FlorianGeyer

            I am not an expert on such things. Tactically 24/7 cover would be the optimum I would think.

    • Ronald

      Greatest weakness of the SAA is surveilance, hence drones being thhe least costly answer.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Hence the Israeli attacks on SAA and allies drone facilities. Politically, the US and NATO cannot do this and the Israelis have taken the baton.

        • Neutralone

          Why do all western countries hate Assad? Why do UN agencies condemn the tactics which Syria and Russia use against the Syrian civilian population?

          • FlorianGeyer

            Western Countries hate Assad as he and the SAA + Allies are all that prevents the Western Nations from continuing a long held tradition of imposing regimes that are willing to supply cheap goods to the West at the expense of the foreign citizens in general.

            Wars have always been the enforcer of trade, especially when the low hanging fruit of the golden trees as been plundered by the West.

            Fruit trees, like any other asset, need nurturing , and when resources are not put back into any enterprise , the enterprise is doomed to wither and die.

          • Neutralone

            Your reply does not make sense in what you say about all western countries. It also ignores the fact that UN agencies also condemn Assad AND RUSSIA for the manner in which they deliberately attack civilians, torture civilians and work with Iran and Hezbollah: ANYTHING to stay in power/

          • FlorianGeyer

            The US intimidates or bribes many UN countries to kneel to the USA.

            FACT

    • goingbrokes

      Syrians of course know their desert quite well, only previously it wasn’t full of roaming hostile SF operatives and their minions. Many underground facilities have been dug in the hills and desert for hidden ammo depots and food storage. They are gathering intel about these sites so that when it comes to the scouring stage, it will be done swiftly and completely. It will make an interesting study when it’s all charted and revealed.

      • dutchnational

        It does not help that SAA has a Command very weak on basic strategy or is overwhelmed by lack of crack units and reliable proxies. NDF as holding forces has proven time and again to be non functional. Badly armed, badly trained, weak officer corps and bad morale. When they are also in short supply, then in fact there are no holding forces and IS can do what it wants. SAA must fortify all strategic points in the Badiya, have many roving patrols of crack troops, use local intelligence and drone/areal plus satellite surveillance.

      • FlorianGeyer

        I hope you are correct.

    • dutchnational

      I suspect you either read to much bad fiction, have bad medicines or an innate urge to express conspiracy theories. Pure BS what you are writing here.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Its a fact that NATO special forces have been training terrorists in Al Tanf with the US. Even Norwegian special forces.

        • Neutralone

          Facts can always be proven. Please prove YOUR facts.

          • FlorianGeyer

            And we now cannot deny that the so called ‘rebels’ are just all part of the same cesspit of Warlord Jihady’s for Hire, employed by NATO nations to fracture other nations for the monetary gain of Western Corporations.

            From your “guardian link:
            “The BBC reported the soldiers were working at the base in a defensive role and a spokesman for the New Syrian Army acknowledged that British special forces had provided training, weapons and other equipment.

            The Ministry of Defence, as is standard with special forces, declined to comment on the photographs. But an independent source confirmed they were UK special forces, which are operating against Isis in Syria, Iraq and Libya.

            From your “telegraph” Link:
            ” British special forces are operating on the front line against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Syria, according to rebel commanders.

            The Times reports that they have been defending a rebel unit against Isil attacks, marking the first evidence of the troop’s direct involvement involvement inside Syria rather than training fighters in neighbouring Jordan.”

            From your “southfront” link:

            “According to the report, the Norwegian force is there to “proterct” of the Syrian side of the border crossing after an ISIS attack in the area.”

            There is much more for you to see, IF you open your ears and eyes to explore.
            >>All three articles report NATO forces operating AGAINST ISIS.

          • FlorianGeyer

            ISIS is, or certainly has been supported by Israel and even Obama stated on camera that the US enabled ISIS.

          • Neutralone

            More of your nonsense. More self-serving allegations.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Bollocks to you.

  • ColinNZ

    There will be many US-Israel-Gulf sponsored terrorist distractions during the SAA & allies offensive in the north-west … Syria and her allies are hopefully well prepared for these.

    • dutchnational

      Reality and facts show they are not.

      • Neutralone

        Reality and facts also show there are no US-Israel-Gulf sponsored terrorist distractions.

    IDF missile attacked Telal-Harah, Darra Governorate hours ago, what would be surprising would be if these raids weren’t happening, the Zino pigs have been using my innate Divine offerrings as a PSYOP by violating my human and Civil Rights for 68 years, I fought the Masonic Lodge and Catholic Church who were the principle institutions criminally attacking my person claiming to represent some great cause that is no longer all that relevant in the West because I have increased the veracity on my relevance to the PSYOP by a remarkable amount.

    If Syria wants to expose the credentials of zino pig israel then come on board and expose the criminal insanity that has created the substance of israel over the past 68 years since I spoke from the cradle and revealed my presence to be that of The Messiah.

    That was 1950 slightly too late for me to be the Redeemer and lead the real Jews back, that was the plan of Allah who is dead set against a reestablishment of real Israel.

    Allah Akbar.

    Don’t repel them, kill them and stick their heads on pikes along the path they used, so future terrorists of the USA/Israel/UK know what awaits them.

    • dutchnational

      In short, be IS II.

      • Sinbad2

        ISIS are just Americas mercenaries.
        When the US/Israel tried to takeover Syria in the 1970’s, Hafez Assad killed all the American paid terrorists and their families. Nobody would work as terrorists for the USA/Israel and peace was restored.

        When you are dealing with scum like the USA/Israel you have to get down to their level of depravity, if you want to defeat them.

        • dutchnational

          So, still IS II.

        • Neutralone

          YOU claim that know that ISIS are just Americas mercenaries. I think that is nothing but a lie. The Americans have been instrumental in defeating ISIS.

          If what you claim is true, then you would be able to provide the evidence. Please do so. PROVE that ISIS are Americas mercenaries.

            Who filmed the video? What date was it filmed? How do you or anyone know who was in all those trucks-not ISIS, since they do not have nearly a large enough contingent to field such a large fleet of trucks. Who was in the early helicopter scene, and how does anyone know that the flying helicopter really flew over those unidentified trucks? How is it possible that such a video was allowed to be made if it really is what you say?

            In other words-you are trying to spread fake news.
