The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF), supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, have overrun the ISIS defense northeast of the ISIS-held town of Uqayribat in the eastern Hama pocket in central Syria.

The SAA and the NDF have liberated the areas of Kherbet Bil’as, Mushrifat Huwaysis, Kherbet and Kherbet Tawil Bil’as taking control over a large part of the road to Uqayribat.

Following this advance government forces started working on driving ISIS out from the area north of Manoukh in order to tighten siege on Uqayribat.

Uqayribat is the last remaining ISIS stronghold in the area north of the Homs-Palmyra highway. As soon as it’s libearted, the SAA and the NDF will be able to focus on lifting the ISIS siege from Deir Ezzor.

    The rat trap is shrinking.
    Keep up the good work. :)

    • RichardD

      Yes, and then they’ll be able to start working on the Golan and the Jew cult problem from a much stronger position. What do you think about that, will you still be a Syria cheerleader then?

      • PZIVJ

        Yes indeed, but after SAA is done with ISIS they will still have HTS and others to contend with, so that scenario is a long ways off.

        • RichardD

          And are you supportive of the Golan being returned to Syria, and UNSC Resolution 2334 and the other resolutions against Israel being implemented?

            source?

            I don’t think wikipedia is a good source

            Wow impressive information of events. Resolution 2334 was an important turning point that shows the world the true colors of Israel. In fact they are no longer part of the UN when they failed to pay their yearly dues because of this resolution. The next question is how will trump continue his relationship with Israel. They show optimism to working with trump to resolve this issue. Haven’t seen any extensive support from trump other than words so we will see how he handles this situation with time.

            “Mar 29, 2017 – Israel’s refusal to pay $2 million of its dues will put the country in arrears, but it won’t immediately lose its vote in the world body.”

            AP pulled the story typical when people start to question why anything else isn’t being done.

          • RichardD

            The evil Jews are on their back foot, it’s no time to let up on exposing their crime and evil. Social media like this is a powerful tool, keep up the good work.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The UN has a 3 page PDF for microsoft word, find there is quite a few Jewish YouTubers who are linked to groups who support the Zionist front.

          • RichardD

            Sure, they’re all over the internet. But so are truthers, much to the Jew cultists dismay.

          • Tudor Miron

            Indeed PZIVJ, do you support Golan being returned to Syria?

          • PZIVJ

            @StarTraveler1:disqus
            Yes I do, as long as it becomes a DMZ guarded by UN peacekeepers.
            This would help alleviate the border tensions.

          • Tudor Miron

            Thanks for answering.

          • RichardD

            And the 100 UN and other resolutions that Israel is in violation of, such as the right of return and 2334?

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          The problem with Daesh(HTS,FSA,ISIS,Al Qaeda) groups they are all facing extinction and are on borrowed time. The battle plans they make are meeting stiffer resistance and even stronger counter attacks. They will soon see more uprisings and continued assassinations of their leaders by the locals. The US and all other backers should withdraw all support before they get implicated in this and face public scrutiny for not doing this sooner.

      • Justin

        Golan not as important as the Syrian Iraqi border! Because this liberation means a land route from Iran to Lebanon!
        Now thats gonna make me very happy!
        Its time for Israel to panic!

    • Solomon Krupacek
      • Oh, god. That video is just… terrible. How can the SAA take some ISIS territories without fully securing the area? So many people die for no reason here.

        • goingbrokes

          Don’t believe all that comes out of Amaq news agency. The attack footage in the beginning is BS. They are attacking targets that don’t shoot back, no one is taking cover properly, even the cameraman is just kind of running with it as if there is no danger. The rest of it could be bs too. But in any case, in a war people/soldiers die. Since the start SAA has lost about 100,000 soldiers, mostly at the beginning of the war. Currently the losses are at much lower level. In the desert, against a highly mobile, special forces type of enemy, there is no “fully securing the area”. Sorry, but that’s just how it is.

      • PZIVJ

        This happened last week south of T2 at Wadi al Waer (SF article 8-23).
        20 KIA where claimed at the time.
        ISIS still has strength towards the Iraqi border (just ask the PMU).
        This is why the SAA right flank is refused (bent backwards) in this area.
        Al Bukamal will have to wait. :(

        • Solomon Krupacek

          5 000 more roops and go to al bukamal. today yanks bombed the last bridge at this city. they ar planning something. bukamal first, dez city 2nd

          • PZIVJ

            R U serious?
            SAA should clear both Maadan and Deir Ezzor of ISIS trash ASAP!
            There is no reported movement of SDF and FSA north of the river towards Al Bukamal (just talk so far). And you just watched a video of what could happen to SAA forces advancing past T2!

          • Solomon Krupacek

            yes, i am serious. hey are at maadan, quick take. and also at same time t2 and attack abu qamal. in the mid go direction dez city and not some villages in hama. in those pockets are only few jihaists, and is very stupid thing block the lite units.
            btw, where is the 5th legion? always i read about tigers, but not of them. now are missed the desert hawks with talented owner as extra unit. assad, assad, you miserable boy, you destroy the army.

          • PZIVJ

            I repeat: The supply line is to long and tenuous.
            If T2 can be secured with a wide perimeter for a supply node, this would take some time. But I still think moving on Al Bukamal right now would be like walking into a hornets nest. Daesh is still strong there, and what about your open flanks?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            if into aleppo were not long, then here sure not

  • WinstonSmith

    The ISIS/al-Qaeda joint counterattack was a poorly coordinated abortion, the US/ISISraeli Ziowahhabi terrorists are gonna need another chemical attack or outright war to really slow SAA down.
