On August 18, a special forces unit of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 1st Division ambushed a group of ISIS fighters in the area of Ard Amirah north of the governorate of al-Suwayda, according to the al-Suwayda 24 blog. The Syria-based blog said that the terrorists were attempting to sneak out of the area of al-Safa, which is under a tight siege.

A source in the 1st Division revealed to SouthFront that the SAA captured five ISIS fighters, including two minors, during the ambush. The number of the terrorists who were killed could be as high as 25, according to the source.

Few hours earlier, ISIS fighters attacked several positions of the SAA around al-Safa in a desperate attempt to break the siege. However, the SAA and local fighters repelled the attack within few hours.

The SAA is currently working to find around 30 civilian hostages, who were abducted by the terrorist group earlier this month. Once the hostages are found, the SAA backed by Russian military advisors may carry out a special operation to free them.

I would think that the hostages have been murdered by now. I hope I am wrong though.

It is good that some ISIS have been captured as it will be interesting to hear what they know and who trained them and where.


Hope is the best to have and should be continued until the end.

I hope these hostages are still alive, and they are being saved as a last bargaining chip to save their captors miserable lives,

Icarus Tanović

Yes, that’s right.


I hope we are both wrong though Icarus as I am sure you are as well.


Nah, they have taken the hostages for the very purpose of negotiation when they are surrounded with no alternative. I’m pretty sure they will be freed eventually.

I think the captured ISIS would have been brainwashed cowards. Most likely, their recruitment would lead back to Al Tanf, but try and hold the American’s to account…


I fervently hope you are correct James.


These ISIS and Israel are British forces working under the command of CIA and MI6. Trump and May both are infiltrators.

I see these are shave-and-a-haircut ISIS.

“Honest, brother infidel… We’re not fanatical head-choppers, just regular citizen-geologists exploring the al Safa volcanic fields. Hey, got any Captagon or smokes?”




To quote a line from Lawrence of Arabia “no prisoners”

Icarus Tanović

Screw him! Just like drill instructor in FMJ said:
‘Lawrence what? Of Arabia? Are you royalty? Do you suck dicks? Only faggots and sailors have that name.’


Or…..we could put them in a deep dark hole for the rest of their lives!


Inti an oubliette :)


Why do the rats want to leave the lava fields, are they getting hungry and thirsty?
Perhaps they should have planned better. :DDD

Und in diesen tagen, ist die islamische staat flagge das banner der pracht unserer religion, es ist das erste haus, welches wir mit unseren seelen aufrechterhalten, und im gegenzug behütet es uns. Islam ist unsere religion, die fur immer bestehen bleibt. Allah allein zu dienen ist unser licht!!! https://youtu.be/2ztl-dyZePQ?t=1m10s

SAA does what the U.S. cannot do.


Won’t do…

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

both lol

Look at them at photo 2. Just like bunch of captured rats, what they are!


The Syria war should be the beginning of the end of Israel and Jews on our planet. The UNSG’s report on a Palestinian protection force is in, and he’s calling for one. Lebanon and Syria should join this effort to open additional fronts against the IDF on an as needed basis for clearing them and the Israeli government out of Shebaa Farms and the occupied Golan. Along with moving military and police into Gaza and the West Bank. To secure land, sea and airspace.

Even with the intentionally blurred photo, you can see that the captured ones are just children or teenagers and an elderly man, probably ordinary people who were press-ganged (forcibly recruited) by Daesh. After interrogation, they will probably be released and go home, if they still have homes to go back to.


They seem very young and beardless. Interrogate and exterminate these rats.


Good to see the animals dead. Must piss off the AmeriKKKans no end seeing their proxies being wiped out ?????

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
