The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) large-scale operation against ISIS cells in the country’s vast central region is still ongoing.

The operation, which was launched by the army and other pro-government forces on December 22, is meant to secure the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle. During the last few months, ISIS terrorists carried out dozens of attacks on troops and civilians in the region.

On December 30, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that heavy clashes between army troops and ISIS terrorists are still taking place in the triangle.

The Russian Aerospace Forces have been supporting the operation since the day one. In the last 24 hours, a number of airstrikes targeted ISIS terrorists and their hideouts in eastern Hama, southern Aleppo and southern Raqqa.

The ongoing clashes in the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle led to casualties among the both sides. However, there are no details on the losses.

During 2020, ISIS terrorists managed to expand their influence in Syria’s central region beyond their stronghold, the Homs desert. The terrorists established hideouts in the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle as well as in the western Deir Ezzor countryside.

The SAA and its allies will have to adopt a more aggressive approach to counter the growing ISIS threat in the central region if they want to neutralize ISIS cells before their operations reach urban centers.

The Objective

Welcome to Afghanistan V 2.0 Goodluck fighting ISIS in the deserts.


Putin wants to be an “equal” of the terrorist Ziocorporate globalists of the West, Gorbachov wanted to be their little bitch. So there’s at least that difference with Afghanistan, what hasn’t changed much is ISIS/mujahideen receiving covert US/Ziocorporate support thru the CIA/Mossad/etc.

All Russian president are business manager of the Oligarchy..in the past, in the present and in the future ..like US presidents are the same with the establisment….but if you remember Erdogan sultanate wanted under his control all Idlib, the great Aleppo, North of Hama, and northeast Homs( Al Rastan) and Aleppo…now they only have a part of Idlib and some Kurdish areas…he wanted all Libya..and now only Tripoli province is under Turkish control…for other side neither Armenia nor AZ&Turkey have the control of 3 provinces and a corridor in Nogorno Karabaj…thats because Russian military is de facto a power in Russia which are linked to the military-industrial complex.


Better if it were a fully-committed effort to eradicate the Ziocorporate terrorist globalists’ mercenary ISlamist vermin to destabilise the Middle East, not just in Syria; instead of a half-assed pseudo-blitzkrieg operation to try to push ISIS back a bit.

Meanwhile Putin wants more “business and partnership” with the Ziocorporate terrorists, even the ones that started the current Syrian mess during the Obama/Biden regime.

“Putin sends personal letter to Biden, wishes him Happy New Year & appeals for closer cooperation between Moscow & Washington” https://www.rt.com/russia/511102-putin-biden-personal-congratulations/


Until the US presence in Iraq and Syria is ended, there will always be problems with terrorism in both countries. The US needs to have more body bags being shipped home, I would think. Only then will the US squatters have a lot of pressure from US citizens.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

No mention of Al Tanf this time, that’s good, now we can concentrate on the real reasons that Isis is once again becoming seemingly invincible.
