On June 24, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces entered the key tow of Busra al-Harir in the eastern Daraa countryside, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.

Syrian pro-opposition sources said that the Russian Aerospace Forces supported the SAA attack on Busra al-Harir and conducted more than 50 airstrikes on positions inside the town. However, no civilian casualties were reported as a result of the Russian airstrikes.

Meanwhile, the SAA and its allies continued their ground attack in the region of Lajat between the northwestern al-Suwayda countryside and the northeastern Daraa countryside. According to Syrian pro-government sources, the SAA captured the village of Jadal in the center of the region.

From its side, the US-backed FSA didn’t conduct any defensive operation against the SAA in southern Syria. Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement that militants in 11 villages in southern Syria had surrendered to SAA.

The SAA and its allies will likely capture more areas in the eastern Daraa countryside in the upcoming hours, as the remaining positions of the FSA there appear to be collapsing.

    In Emergency one million tonnes of food products needed to Palestine and one million tonnes of food products to Yemen, otherwise in both countries all children and women will die due to starvation. At the moment they eat clay.

    US is stepping back again. al-Tanf is the focus of a common pattern of events, as the US bluffs in an attempt to secure a 55 kilometre de-confliction zone PMU lost 22 martyred and SAA was also attacked from the air as a warning of consequences if the Daraa operation is proceeded with, meaning most likely israel will initiate advances in the area.
    This is very unlikely as Western public opinion is heavily against supporting israel, what israel is lacking is a dinkum Redeemer, their expectation has fallen short using me, maybe I’ll come back in 2000 years and rethink the position again, I sincerely only hope Christians can hold their breath till then.

      Yes airstrikes were conducted by the US 200 meters near Al Qaim is where they fired them from.

        It is being reported that Netanyahu just shot down an Iranian Cargo Aircraft, no doubt he’s trying to force a war between Iran and the US, if the incident is verified, I don’t think the Iranians will just ignore it, they will do a small recognizable strike on israel and establish the new rules of engagement, Netanyahu would be hoping for an emotional response.
        Trump still wants to quit Syria and is not changing his mind at the moment.

          Another thing you missed in not saying is Bibi is shooting his mouth of as bad as his lunatic cousin Erdie “who sees little birdies” both are going to fall hard.

          • Rodney Loder

            I disagree Erdie (Tayyip Erdogen) is supported by Allah, the only way he can fall is if the earth swallows him up, I know that sounds far out but something a lot of people don’t realize is that the most stable Nations are the ones that had a long period of stability, this is what Allah has earmarked for Turkey, and israel is totally dependant on Trump reducing all international organizations to rubber stamps of US hegemony which would make Trump the Greatest of Great geniuses, something tells me it’s not going to work.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            I don’t support him so no help from God on this like all false deceivers in life they make claim of an unseen power only they can communicate with and anoint themselves.

          • Rodney Loder

            Very true, a lot of things are like that, corruption via sedition is the same outcome as sedition via corruption, the former is ethical because the corrupted individual was answering a genuine cause as a personal loyalty and so was corrupted to advance his moral commitment.

            Probably there is no other definition of what is politically ethical behavior other than personal previous commitments.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Last part is truer than most people understand.

        You seem to like bringing up old posts of others, but hide your own?
        You wouldn’t be Jewish by any chance?

        • Wise Gandalf

          I never hide. I tell the truth. Therefore hate me such guys like you :P

          What did you to change australian international politics? Why do you do nothing at home and come here to tell other nations what they have to do???

          • Sinbad2

            “I never hide”

            You hide your posts so no one can see, anybody can click on your icon and see that.
            And who are you to tell me what I should and shouldn’t do?
            So are you Hasbara?
            Yes or no.

          Maybe they say the IDF army has marijuana problem about 50% smoke or more.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Only ISIS and Al Qaeda and their allies many groups of FSA are joining SAA to fight them. US wavered in support as soon as Russia provided airstrikes in Daraa. Russians knew the US were bluffing and Jordan was in full knowledge of them backing down and why they are not allowing an influx of refugees and fleeing militants.

  • Tudor Miron

    Caudrons are starting to brew. Get ready head choppers – time is out.

      Damn right and then on to the terrorists they backed.

    All this and England won 6:1.

    This is good news. Busra is also an important archeological site. If they can capture it without too much damage that would be a big win for the SAA.

      Check out some images of the ancient Roman amphitheatre in busra.

        Thank you, I am just shooting for noteworthy. You should try it sometime.

      Correction, this is busra al harir, not busra. Unfortunately , busra is still occupied and is further south.
