Syrian Military Deploys Large Reinforcements, Including Battle Tanks and Technicals, For Advance Against ISIS In Eastern Hama (Video)

A screenshot from the video

The Syrian military has deployed large reinforcements, including battle tanks and technicals armed with various weapons, to the eastern countryside of Hama, according to a video published online.

The deployed force will likely participate in the operation in the area of the ISIS-held town of Huwaisis where the terrorist group has a significant force threatening the government supply line between Palmyra and Homs.

The Huwaisis and its countryside have to be cleared from ISIS terrorists if government forces want developing an advance in the direction of Deir Ezzor.

      Thats normally a 100% fake. I havnt heard that idiot sitting at the backside of the moon with a pericope make more then grass for the sheep.

      But You can be lucky. It it get rain according to Raqqa,Aleppo24, Its sometimes get har sunshine.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        no fake news. for several months are grouping the hoghest leaders of isi in al mayadin. and be sure, the isis jihadists are able to move unobserved. remeber palmyras lost.

    • Jesus

      ISIS can deploy their junk equipment around Deir Ezzor, the defense is favorite to hold on even against odds of 4:1 or 5:1, why is ISIS carrying out attacks at night? Why not wait for a sand storm? Why is not ISIS able to deploy VBIEDs in Deir Ezzor?

      The bottom line is ISIS has run out of strategic tricks to fool the defenders in Deir Ezzor.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        i see only that sad fact, that saa slowly loses the city.

        • Jesus

          You need to see the ISIS corpses littering the field after every failed attack.
          Deir Ezzor is a meat grinder for ISIS,

    • Jesus

      You remember the BS you were spouting off that Kurds defeat VBIEDs regularly, have you checked the news from Raqqa where ISIS counterattacked SDF positions with a VBIED killing over 30 Kurds and regaining their positions?

      Kurds have not fought a large urban war lasting years, they took over semi desert areas and their gathering concentrations were insignificant to justify an ISIS VBIED attack.
      In Raqqa, they will taste VBIEDs and they will do poorly against them, sinc they do not have enough urban warfare experience.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        i remeber, and i WROTE about rare exceptions. in case of SAA 40-50% effectivity of defence, at kurd 90%- that is the reality.

        i write always exactly!

        • Jesus

          Kurds did not fight in urban areas, their master allowed ISIS to cede urban areas, making it easy for Kurds to “win”. VBIED are effective in urban areas, an area the Kurds were handed to them by ISIS.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            aha, the saa was blown up also in desert. fifty times? :)))

          • Jesus

            Where is your proof?

          • Jens Holm

            So if kurds never has fighted in urban areas, how do You know, they are bad.

            I see rapid and clever guerilla infantery working extremnely well as small teams. I see many very well snipers.

            Thats a good beginning.

            And after all, they have taken manbij as well as Tabqa. Most ISIS trics are well known too.

          • Jesus

            “So if kurds never has fighted in urban areas, how do You know, they are bad.”

            You need to have experience in a certain battle environment, being a novice will cause a lot of casualties.

          • Jens Holm

            I didnt say all are experts. I say the major parts are as written, which make them better than You wrote – much better.

          • Jesus

            Kurds do not have significant heavy weaponry, lately a convoy of 100 truck delivered them some weapons, they are a paramilitary force.

          • Jens Holm

            Yes, but I name them as soldiers and they do it very professional as such. They are no amatuers – well the beginners – mainly arabs are.

          • Jesus

            When hand to hand combat was the norm, being a good soldier provided a solid foundation for an army. Today long range weapons, automatic weapons, long range artilery…etc can negate the qualities of a good soldier if command and tactics employed are subpar. Just consider WW1 and the trench warfare.

          • Jens Holm

            Thats why I call them soldiers. They are a version of modern warfare, where well armed infanterist in many matters are the best.

            You could see up to WW2 they were still building big battleships for long range superior firepower. Germans made some big ones too.

            But those were replaced by hangarships, airplanes and submarines.

            Today there are only hangarsships involved at special occosians replacing lad based facilities.

            In stead you have many smaller wessels being higly armed, rockets, drones and GPS.

            We have just almost orderes 35 F35 fighters. But the first will arrive witin 10 years. So why dont we by drones in stead of many of them. A lot of the airforce jobs are finding enemies, illegal wastedump incl. lacking oil from ships and also illegal fishing.

            We also have to protect all Greenland with them. Drones are much cheeper, look better and me dont loose men and can still send some F16(later F35) if it go into hard. Drones are armed too, if You wish and can take at least some targets well.

          • Jesus

            I do not see Kurds being good infantry, Hezbollah is much better in capabilities, weaponry and experience.
            SAA will get better as there is an influx of new young recruits and better training, wars usually harden a population to accomplish great feats during and after the war.

          • Jens Holm

            ok

    This is wrong. The SAA should focus on SDF. SDF, SDF and just SDF.

    The end game of the Zionist Axis is balkanization. ISIS are a useful weapon in the Zionist Axis for balkanization. ISIS are a fake group. The leader is an Israeli called Shimon Elliott.

    ISIS was played up as the Bad Boy of Islam. They are cartoonishly evil. All the beheadings of journalists — done by Israeli agents. People still haven’t woken up to their tricks even though they did the same stunts in the Gulf War when Mossad was beheading Americans in the Iraqi desert.

    ISIS’s functions are many:

    1) Give SDF and FSA political legitimacy. SDF and FSA are the good guys. See how they fight the bad guys, ISIS?

    This makes it harder for Assad to hit them. He will be attacking the “good guys”.

    SAA have even worked with SDF and FSA on a few occasions to kill ISIS bad guys. This was a bad mistake. Giving legitimacy to insurgent groups that want to overthrow you is always a bad move. Especially when the insurgent groups are backed by the powerful United States.

    2) ISIS can lure the SAA away from parts of Syria where the Zionists don’t want the SAA to be. The Zionists didn’t want the SAA in the north where they were busy building up SDF fighting units. While the Zionist USA was training and arming the Kurdish to be fighting fit, the SAA were dropping barrel bombs on ISIS, killing lots of civilians and getting ripped to pieces in the hypocritical western media.

    3) ISIS can do divide and conquer. While Sunnis around the world see Assad killing Sunni ISIS militants, including Muslim Brotherhood fighters and pro-MB Palestinians, hatred against the Shiites grows amongst the Sunnis.

    4) ISIS can make Assad deplete his military hardware and exhaust his military personnel. The war has dragged on for 6 years and Assad hasn’t really achieved very much during this time. He has gained a few cities, that’s about it.

    In the meantime, he’s lost half of his planes and half of his tanks and some other military hardware. He’s also down on cash. He has to pay for munitions from the Russians and Iranians using promissory notes.

    In this weak state, he faces the might of the US military, who are now fully involved, with boots on the ground, in this war.

    The main job of ISIS was to take attention away from SDF and FSA. Everyone was talking about ISIS but no one was talking about the FSA and SDF.

    Silly Assad. He should have stuck to being an eye doctor and let his younger brother be president.

      alphabet spaghetti makes my dinnerplate look like a warzone….

    • tigbear

      That should be 300 million Muslims in the Middle East. Persians and Afghanis are not Arabs.

    • Jens Holm

      Who let You out. Without kurds Assads were hardly Emirs of latakia.

    • Jesus

      When SAA and allies defeats and annihilates ISIS, the role of the US in Syria will be without a mandate. SDF can be dealt with in multiple ways.
      FSA will either surrender or get eliminated as well, they have a noose around their neck.
      With FSA and ISIS eliminated, if US wants an active role in Syria, they will have to put real boots on the ground, instead of the special forces who cannot fight a pitched modern battle involving armor, artilery and missilery.

      If they do, they will experience something very different than what they experienced in Iraq.

  • Jens Holm

    Closing the gap north of the Palmyra Octopussy make sense. Thats was SAA as primitive army can making frontlines and supportlines shorter, so they dont get deep counterattacks as well.

  • Thegr8rambino

    What a huge convoy I love it!!! So much firepower and guns! I really feel though they need some Russian escorts to deter any “accidental” US airstrikes

  • Jacek Wolski

    Who is supplying SAA with the US made pick up trucks?

  • Anton

    Syrian and Iranians Forces have practically belagert ISIS in easern Syria in Deir Az Zor and Al Mayadin.
