Syrian Army Repelling Large ISIS Attack In Southern Raqqah (Map)

Support SouthFront

Last night ISIS launched a large-scale attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and pro-government tribal forces in the southern Raqqah countryside.

According to pro-militant sources, ISIS had deployed elite forces for this advance and even achieved some gains pushing the SAA Tiger Forces and other pro-government units to retreat to the Ghanim Ali-Bishri road. ISIS units reportedly entered the Wadi Ubayd oil field area, Wadi al-Tarab and Rajm Sulayman but were not able to develop the advance further.

Government forces re-groupped and launched a counter-attack to regain the points lost to ISIS. According to some pro-government sources, government troops, led by the Tiger Forces, even did this and regained all lost points.

However, these reports were overestimation. Government forces were not able to reach the outskirts of Maadan.

On Tuesday, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq released few reports claiming that ISIS members killed 50 SAA members and destroyed 3 vehicles as well as captured a battle tank.

Cornered rat is trying to bite. My prediction is: Like the latest attacks of Daesh against SAA the only result will be = even faster distruction of headchopping scum.

Joe Doe

Stopping advances at the gate of Maadan city was one of many SAA blunder and most likely not the last
one. The worst Officer Staff can due to its soldiers is to order to leave half job done and move the troops to another front. As I pointed out many times SAA High COmmand Staff and Officers have history of poor planning and intelligence gathering.

ISIS has plenty time to rearm, regroup, rest and reinforce with additional units and the city itself the the consequences are many dead soldiers and military hardware.

Turbofan

You seem to know a lot about incompetence and jobs being half done..Talking from personal experience I assume?

Joe Doe

I have to disappoint you, but I never leave job have than and always prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
You negativity in your reply tells me that you most likely incompetent and can’t swallow criticism

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Your negativity in criticism doesn’t help , but as we are seeing this has been a failed attempt by Daesh group 1, Daesh group 2 has also failed in their operations and continued attempts as the first group. The area around DE is slowly being cleared of Daesh terrorists ,the numbers in DE are believed to be about 15-20,000 of the SAA and allies, these numbers should be able to reclaim stronger defensive positions to act in a pincer against the Daesh scum when they link the various fronts and push them onto the defenders at DE.

gustavo

I agree with you point. Russia army has to tell these Syria generals and commander where they are making mistakes.

Joe Doe

Correct, when you receive criticism or something went wrong, analyze and make improvement or fixed. Sweeping problem or blunders under the carpet will not help. Only infantry will pay heavy price

John Brown

No Joe Doe it was very smart of the SAA to stop at Madan as it was heavily defended and now those ISIS Israeli forces from Madan are on the offensive and out in the open where they can be more easily destroyed by air power, instead of being well dug in, in a city where it would be much harder and take much longer to destroy them. .

Astaris

I don’t think that Mr. Putin approves of the “ISIS Israeli” rubbish. Don’t make a fool of yourself. Israel is a Jewish country suffering from Sunni-Muslim jihadi attacks for 25 years now (particularly after Hamas took over the Gaza Strip) and ISIS are Sunni-Muslim jihadis who threaten to liberate Jerusalem and exterminate all the infidel Jews in Palestine (which in their terminology includes Israel as well). Only if you want to be taken seriously of course, including by your tovarish bosses in the troll farm that you work in.

John Brown

Your the fool I quote the Israeli defense minister proving ISIS is Israeli. ISIS ‘apologized’ to Israel for mistakenly attacking their ally and master Israel and IDF soldiers – confesses former Defense Minister
ISIS is Israel, Israel is ISIS nothing beats the confession.
Ex defense minister says IS apologized to Israel for November clash

Former Israeli defense minister Moshe ‘Bogie’ Ya’alon speaks at the Hebrew University, on January 18, 2017. (Miriam Alster/Flash90)
Judah Ari Gross Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel’s military correspondent.
neighborhood
Former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon on Saturday said the Islamic State terrorist group in the Syrian Golan Heights “apologized” for attacking an Israeli unit.
“There was one case recently where Daesh opened fire and apologized,” Ya’alon said, using the terror group’s Arabic nickname.
This was an apparent reference to a clash that took place near the Syrian border last November,
Syrian officials have accused Israel of directly aiding the Islamic State and other rebel groups, a claim Jerusalem vociferously denies.

You won’t see this on our heavily censored racist supremacist Jewish owned media. This should be front page news and on every T.V channel. Where are the sanctions and Toma Hawk cruise missile strikes on Israel for this??
Yes I don’t think ISIS apologizes to France, Britain, Germany, the USA etc etc.
They show this in Israeli media but if any media or politician in the Israeli occupied slave empire showed it or talked about it here they would be called racist, arrested etc. for talking about and reporting on the truth. Nothing beats a confession this time from the Israeli defense minister.
Is there any doubt who the creators and masters of ISIS and Al Cia Da are???
Is the times of Israel anti Jewish and against Israel for saying this???

Part 2 Yaalon’s confirmation, Israel and ISIS Are Allies.
Ya alon I would prefer Islamic State to Iran in Syria
http://www.timesofisrael.com/yaalon-i-would-prefer-islamic-state-to-iran-in-syria/
There. We Said It. When you bomb an ally, you apologize. When you bomb an enemy, you don’t. What does that make ISIS to Israel?

http://www.middleeasteye.net/columns/tacit-israeli-islamic-state-alliance-1912165008
Yaalon’s confirmation
There is always much that I disagree with whenever I read Yaalon’s views. For example, while warning in this video about the danger of favouring too heavily one side over the other in Syria, he essentially justifies Israel’s interventionist approach. It has largely favoured Assad’s Islamist opponents.
He did reveal Israel’s ties to IS in Syria. I’ve documented, along with other journalists, Israeli collaboration with al-Nusra, an affiliate of al-Qaeda. But no Israeli until now has admitted it has collaborated with IS as well.

The racist supremacist government of Israel is Jewish the country is not. When you say that you are showing you are a member of the racist supremacist as the racist Jews like you say the superior, master, chosen Jewish race.
You show your ugly manifestation of Jewish ethnocentrism, exclusivism and bigotry, in this film you may notice that none of the Israeli racists in the film identifies as a ‘Zionist’ or showed any concern for the Zionist nature of Israel. Instead they, and without exception, express their deep concern with the ‘Jewish State’ its ‘Jewish character’ and matters pertaining to the Jewish religion and Jewish racial ‘purity’.

So you live in India Ataris. is that because you failed the racial purity supremacist master chosen Jewish superior race test to become an Israeli citizen??
See a required A DNA test to prove racial purity to get citizenship this is the very definition of racism how can it be more racist?? Indian Jews resist DNA tests to prove they are a lost tribe http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/india/1412777/Indian-Jews-resist-DNA-tests-to-prove-they-are-a-lost-tribe.html Indian ‘Jews’ resist DNA tests to prove they are a lost tribe Inigo Gilmore in Jerusalem Members of a remote community of Indians who claim to be descendants of one of the 10 lost tribes of ancient Israel are resisting plans to carry out genetic tests to prove their Jewishness. The group,which calls itself the Bnei Menashe (or children of the biblical tribe of Manasseh), fears that the plan by a group of American and Israeli scientists to carry out DNA tests may undermine its claims to Jewish ancestry. Many of the Bnei Menashe fear that the proposal that they should undergo DNA testing may further complicate their efforts to assimilate and to bring fellow members of the tribe to Israel. He said: “Over a number of years, Jewish blood has mixed with non-Jewish blood in our community. So would the DNA test show that we are Jewish? Maybe not. So are people then going to say that we are not Jewish and dash the hopes of the rest of the community to move here? Even if it is not proven according to a DNA test, we feel Jewish and we will still be Jewish.” Take the racial purity test to see if you are part of the superior racist and supremacist master race.

Youth program reportedly casts doubt on Russian woman’s Jewishness because her father didn’t register her birth until age 3
The father, Dr. Shimon Yakerson, told the Hebrew daily Maariv that a Birthright administrator informed Masha, his daughter, that she’d have to take the test because her birth had only been registered when she was three years old, and that there were therefore doubts as to whether she was really his daughter.
You know I don’t think even the KKK does this kind of racist stuff.

What’s wrong Astaris has the confession of Israeli defense minister Moshe ‘Bogie’ Ya’alon that ISIS apologized to Israel for accidentally attacking some Israeli soldiers left you speechless? Will you admit it that you are wrong and that ISIS is Israeli as is Al Qaeda? Are you going to tell us that the Israeli defense minister Moshe ‘Bogie’ Ya’alon and the Times of Israel are anti Jewish? Do you approve of Israeli racial purity supremacy tests for citizenship? How about Israel sterilizing black Jews and throwing their blood donations into the garbage??

It’s a matter of priorities. There is more or less only 1 elite unit in the SAA and they prioritised eastern Hama to prevent being attacked in back (I assume).

ruca

You must have a lot of inside knowledge. Tell us how it looks at the front line.

FlorianGeyer

Could it be that the US has a clandestine agenda with ISIS that IF the head choppers can push back the SAA to the South of the Raqqa City area, then the 2000 or so ISIS surrounded in Raqqa would be ‘ miraculously ‘ be able to escape ?

Were that to happen the US proxy Kurds fighting in Raqqa would be freed up to take the oil rich areas of Eastern Deir Ezzor.

Just a thought :)

Jesus

That was my earlier thought 2-3 days ago.

FlorianGeyer

Its certainly a possibility in the Machiavellian world of US thought.

Daqiri

Hopefully Tigers will recapture all the lost points today, and Russian MoD will declare 800 ISIS fighters killed and 50 vehicles destroyed.

Jesus

To refresh your memory, HTS jihadis had deployed 13,000 men around W. Aleppo trying to break the encirclement of the city, by the time the battle was done, they had suffered 5-7000 dead casualties, losses they have not recuperated from. 800 men hardly constitute more than a battalion, if ISIS has 4-5000 fighters in the area, that would represent 15-20% casualties. ISIS cannot sustain these kind of casualties for long, even with US intelligence help, they are dead meat in open positions where aerial attacks will only increase.

John Brown

Yes Jesus its great ISIS Israeli forces are on the offensive out in the open where they can be more easily destroyed.

Daniel

That was really a death blow to HTS in Aleppo back then when they tried to lift the siege and succeeded for a short while, but the cost was too high.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

The region around Ghanim Ali seen that many already and video evidence to prove it.

Dustil schmit

BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 A.M.) – Some fifty-six (56) Syrian Army soldiers who went missing in the midst of a huge ISIS offensive throughout southeastern Raqqa Governorate about four days ago have arrived, interestingly enough, at a large army base in Hasakah Governorate.

These army soldiers had been routed during the initial shock phase of a surprise offensive by seasoned ISIS forces in southeast Raqqa.

Separated from their units, they made their way towards lines of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who then transported them to a large Syrian Army base south of the city of Qamishli in Hasakah Governorate.

Joe Doe

SOme reports saying that over 300 are missing

VGA

Some tribal “fighters” must have individually returned to their homes and are waiting for some days to pass so that others can fight ISIS, before reporting in.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

The missing were just those that didn’t report right away , since the communications in the region has been spotty, they believe the Coalition is using Jamming to disrupt their communications.

PZIVJ

That is very interesting and amusing.
Maybe they wanted to redeploy to a base that is much more quite and peaceful. :)

gustavo

¿ Where is Russia aerospace force to erase these terrorists ?, or ¿ did they act when they say that killed 800 terrorists ? I really hope that Russia increases A LOT its aerospace forces in this area.

Joe Doe

You have to read between lines on those reports. I all the figures will be accurate about ISIS killed, there should not be ISIS left in Syria, but as you can see they are in Syria and strong

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Daesh is forcing locals to fight for them and arresting and killing any opposed to this.

Cheryl Brandon

I think the plan is to meet the Iraqis on the eastern end and move up north to tackle those fleeing rats! If the 3 of them join together, then they can exterminate all the rats in Northern Syria!. Charge USA and their proxies and the Kurds with War crimes! They too have been stealing property and land from other ethnic minorities eg christisns and sunni and shias and other groups; Kurds+USA+Terrorist are all in the same camp: CRIMINALS

Lupus

SAA and friends suffers a lack of troops. Still they are on winning hand. As they close in on Isis in the last strongholds of these rats we will see more of their convulsions. Their defeat is inevetable tho. After the Hama pocket is cleansed the rest of m will be terminated in DeZ. Let the endgame begin!

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

They are fighting on multiple fronts including the South eastern desert and both fronts in Homs-Hama as HTS and allies try to break the pocket open. They still have to maintain their fronts in all regions and why they can counter these attacks without suffering losses elsewhere.

DJ Double D

US must have something to do with these massive ISIS attacks. This is almost certainty. The agenda is still the same – Destroy Syria.

Astaris

Why don’t you guys just write in Russian? Why the effort of writing to each other in Russo-English?

ruca

Does it offend you?

RedBaron9495

Go back to Jerusalem Post forums….you annoying little kike!
