    While not without counterattacks, lossess and heavy fighting, the SDF is doing well around Raqqah. The Baath dam, more easily attacked then the Tabqah dam, is about to be assaulted and is now within a pocket.

    Once that pocket is cleared, the dam taken, the final assault on Raqqah is qbout to be started. SDF will have though to station enough forces in their back against SAA out of Maskanah. They will arrive, maybe not this week, but likely in the first half of june.

      SAA and SDF will agree deconflictation.

    • dutchnational

      They did?

      I did not read that (yet).

      When one follows DeZ on this site, one would get the feeling that SAA has been gaining grounds and having great victories here for more then half a year (though remaining within the same lines, strangely)

    Yup, SF the shit storm is coming, the western MSM is right now running idiot propaganda made by British TV, Basically Bollocks Constantly aka BBC about the Syrian electronic army, you should watch that “program” to see how the west makes propaganda, if you didn’t know the story, this would be an ” CONvincing” program, do it, watch it to learn how to make “good!” propaganda, this is how BBC have done it for decades, long before Libya and the so called “Arab Spring” sprang, and how the French “lord know what/whom” talk about it, and how they manufacture everything, and of course, not a word about what the French scums are doing, and even the Russians is in it, hehe, I was slack jawed, but then again we talk about Norway and our MSM/Gov. whom is an Israeli controlled province like Sweden and Finland.
    Norway and the rest of the Nordics is right now as we speak white washing ISIS, and the uISISas merc army aka FSA all to take down Assad

    So to the case, the talk is right now, like this propaganda show talked about, about helping the happy head chopping “moderates” aka FSA/”lord know what” whom they ( the western MSM) label as rebels or revolutionary’s to fight the Syrian Gov, and Assad is of course Da Dick, and as Trump stated it, they will fight “ISIS” in Syria/Iraq, and now NATO is coming into this arena, the Joooo Stoltenberg is confirming it in our MSM, this buffer zone is what its about and so the North Atlantic Terror Org will invade, I know they will invade, to take back what ISIS, sorry, sorry, the happy head choppin moderates.
    NATO will go to war, of course to fight terrorists, just as the monkey in the WH, and invade Syria.
    And as I understand it, Iraq is on it to along with Saudis and the rotten scums running the Kingdoms along the Gulf, and the Kurd’s.

    Yeah, we all can imagine the rest.
    The road to ww3 is locked and loaded, its coming, and this, Russia and China, ( I know Chine will not lift an finger, just hover over it all like an vulture awaiting to make some cash) is the litmus test.
    The NATO invasion will probably come relatively soon, since the happy head chopping “moderates” is loosing ground rapidly as we speak.
    You know, the flip flopping narratives the MSM pimps when He was an Syrian first and now, ups an Libyan, of course an ISIS affiliates, and I remember the Norwegian MSM articles about this “brave” freedom fighters (western creates ISIS, whom was then flown into Syria, remember anyone, huh) whom was against the dictator, Gaddafy, of course we all know they lied about Him but now its to late, and this people are simply tools, stupid humans whom thinks they are protected by the west, and used as patsies to south the uISISa full spectrum dominance and this false flags is just that, kill some innocent people and frame it on their patsies, works every time, like the miraculous IDs that pops up all the time.

    I dont like it, because I know they will do it.
    wake up

    peace

    PS: this Manch attack, and I understood that She is an supporter of Palestine, as I am, and the Young Labor Party in Norway, our children whom was mascaraed where the Norse brave police force hided in the forest, yeah, coward scums, but to use 4 police officers to kick down an 84 year old man, that bravery according to the Norse police force, an massacre done by the scumbag ABB, where half of the Norse population where happy since the Labor Youths wanted to vote over supporting he recognition of Palestine as an legitimate state, and its fight against the terror state Israel.
    ABB is an hero in the Norwegian right winged party’s incl the one in the gov. as we speak, they where ecstatic over getting rid of “lefties scums” and still are, like the RT article and its comentary field, go there an read.

    I know this was an false flag, made to crush whatever Resistance there is against the terror state Israel, and to then, like the Norse attack, is to blame Islam, period, and go to RT and read the comments, and then tell me, why is it that RT is so popular, that beats me, RT is an rotten stinking shit-hole.
