Russian Tu-22M3 strategic bombers carried out massive strikes on ISIS terrorists in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor on November 25 and November 26. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the strikes hit ISIS’ manpower, vehicles and command posts in the Euphrates Valley.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces continued clearing the western bank of the river from terrorists and liberated Gharibah, Dablan, Wadi Fulaytah and Tall Tafran.

On November 26, the Syrian Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA) claimed that “Turkish-backed militants” have shot down three Russian helicopters over the northern Aleppo countryside. An official of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) told ANHA that several Russian pilots and high-ranking officers were killed or injured in the supposed attack on the Russian helicopters.

So far, ANHA has provided no video or photo confirmation of its claims. The militant groups of Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) have not claimed that they downed some helicopters in the area.
According to local sources, three Russian helicopters, a Mi-8AMTSh and two Ka-52, were really spotted in the area. Local militants opened fire on them with light weapons and machine guns. However, no helicopter was downed. An absence of the official commentary on the issue from the Russian Defense Ministry contributes to this version.

In northeastern Hama, ISIS cells have seized the villages of Rasm Sakkaf, Mu’siwan, ‘Atshanah, Shayhat Hamra and Abu ’Ajwah from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). The group expansion in the area came amid an intense fighting between the SAA and HTS in southern Aleppo and northern Hama.

The Iraqi Army and the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) have liberated the area of 14,100 km2 including 175 villages since the start of the anti-ISIS operation in the al-Jazeera region of Iraq. During their advance, government troops have destroyed 11 vehicles, 5 oil tankers, 18 car bombs and 6 motorcycles of ISIS as well as dismantled 1,000 IED planted by ISIS.

The army and the PMU are now consolidating their gains, securing the recently liberated area and re-supplying their troops. As soon as this is done, they will continue their push to liberate the rest of the border area from ISIS.

    Why do I think that there will be suicide bombs bombs going off in Syria for quite a while?

    • Rodney Loder

      You probably think that because my Salafist Brothers who are mainly responsible,- although SDF is getting in on the act,- believe that the nearest enemy is the easiest enemy, they figured that because the CIA networking was so flush with cash and NATO usually able to bomb unimpeded that it made sense to be the little guy in the corner backing the winner, so when the Mahdi comes shimmying down the minaret they would be first to salute him and cop a gigantic portion of metaphysical BS and go on to dominate.
      All things considered I could terminate this stupid storytelling and also the terror attacks not withstanding the ones coming from the SDF, but my Government insists I remain wherein I am in psychiatric incarceration where Sue Loder in collision with Government Officials put me using criminal procedures.

      • Daniel Castro

        Shouldn’t your salafist brother be fighting on the side of Allah? By choosing the side of money and globalist empire they are fighting for satan…

        • Rodney Loder

          Not all Salafists are that way inclined, because I’m Isa and I could have choosen any Religion it’s up to me who is representing the Ambition of Allah, since I chose Salafism because it fits my secular Philosophy Allah then impounded Himself into Brother Baghdadi’s Caliphate, sacrificing the ones that He loves the best so as to stymie al-Qa’ed which worked, now were turning a new leaf because that outcome has been reached, I won, next thing is the New Brotherhood is linking arms with Assad against all oncomers, but the highest priority is MbS and his auxiliaries.

          • Daniel Castro

            I never said all, I was refering to those who have sided with the zionists.

          • Rodney Loder

            Sorry about that misconception most people think it’s all but it’s not, in Jordan for example there was a strong Salafist Movement opposing active Jihadists when they crossed the border but they had to stand down .

          • Daniel Castro

            For outsider may be a little confusing to tell the difference between a sunni, a salafist, a wahabist or a jihadist, and I would say mulslims themselves are a little guilty for such misconception as I see very little effort to educate the world about islamism.

            I can say you the vast majority of people that is not muslim can’t say the difference between sunni and shia(yes, the people is very ignorant on average), they just think it’s averything the same, and this plays just right for zionists who plan to keep the muslim world under perpetual warfare.

          • Rodney Loder

            I think everyone has their own narrow barow to push, a barrow also means a heap of earth placed over a prehistoric tomb, archeologists obviously made the connection with the wheel but the dirt would have been carried in skins on their backs as a symbolic ritual that gave them a social identity, I think that’s about call you can say about it, Islam definitely needs a face lift, that’s why I’m into Romanticism, their might be other inclinations attached , it’s hard to know exactly where the buck stops, if ever.

          • Kira Binkley

            Are you an “outsider”, Daniel?

          • Daniel Castro

            Well, I’m christian born in a traditional brazilian family, and I never met a muslim in person.

          • Kira Binkley

            But you studied Islam, am I right?

          • Daniel Castro

            No, I haven’t, not from serious sources at least, I”m still trying to get over my own prejudices.

            Anyway, I do respect Islam more and more by the day, these days of leftist satanic insanity in my country just show me the true value of religions which uphold traditional values like Islam.

          • Kira Binkley

            I appreciate your forthrightness, Daniel. There is much for the West to learn from Islam and the Near, Middle and Far East.
            But tell that to Douglas Feith and other neo-conservatives.—KiraSeer

          • Daniel Castro

            Unfortunately words don’t work with zionists, the only way to deal with them is on the battlefield.

          • Kira Binkley

            Who are you describing as Zionists, Danel?

            “Allah then impounded himself into Brother Baghdadi’s Caliphate”—That could be interpreted in many ways, Rodney.

          • Rodney Loder

            Easy to know “now” that the split between Brother Baghdadi and Zawahiri saved Syria from the CIA, but I said it continually since July 2014 that’s where my credibility is coming from today, IS is harbouring in the SDF camp now so Baghdadi has to go International which will be easy for recruitment compared to Zawahiri who is now saddled with Salman being a proxy or israel, so Allah might still use Brother Baghdadi were all Salafists Baghdadi doesn’t respect Wahhabi neither does Zawahiri but he has to pay homage to him Baghdadi doesn’t, I now align with the New Brotherhood because Salafist Call Egypt will have to stand down till its over, I hope The New Brotherhood doesn’t attract Brother Baghdad’s enmity we don’t want them coming after us Zawahiri is bad enough.

        • Kira Binkley

          To read and understand Rodney, you must first suspend disbelief. Love you, Rodney!!
          KiraSeer

          Or maybe that is suspend belief!! Whatever.

          • Daniel Castro

            It is a little like reading Jacques Derrida…

          • Kira Binkley

            Well, ok. Another of those European malignancies? And French? When I run out of things to do, I’ll give him a look-see.

          • Daniel Castro

            Don’t waste your time, Loder is better.

          • Kira Binkley

            Yes, I know. And very well.
