Syrian Troops Still Struggling To Secure Al-Bukamal Area Amid ISIS Coutner-Attacks (Map)

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbolalh are still struggling to secure the recently liberated area of al-Bukamal in the province of Deir Ezzor. According to pro-government sources, the SAA and Hezbollah are clashing with ISIS members in Jalaa area and  north of the city. Pro-opposition sources even claim that government forces are still in control of the only southern part of al-Bukamal.

As it was reported earlier, ISIS has a large network of undeground tunnels in the area. So, the terrorist group is able to conduct counter-attacks even in the formally liberated parts of the city.

The Syrian Defense Ministry announced the liberation of al-Bukamal on November 9. The Russian Defense Ministry congratulated Syrian forces with the victory on November 10.

However, it looks the situation is at least a bit more complicated than the officials want to show.

    This must stop and stop now.

    Syria + allies; the US are throwing everything at you by one means or another – now you either play their game or you show them once and for all that you are serious….. I no longer care if what I am about to say is dreadful, because you are currently in the back seat and the World is watching……

    BLITZ the North of al-Bukamal with tunnel busting bombs – END OF.

    PS It really doesn’t matter if you want to stay diplomatic and humane; the Zio-Yanks will come after over and over again. Take out Al-Tanf as well. Enough now.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I agree, the time has come to employ more force before the US can further interfere.

    • Tudor Miron

      Guys…. I just don’t understand your frustration and wanting to “end it all in minute”. I would prefer if SAA will calmly and steadily clean out the sity without too much devestation of it. After all it is Sirians who will have to rebuild it. Is it really that important to finish it off now (and listen to MSM screaming that Assad is butchering his own people and their property) or carefully move on even if it takes another week of so?

            We are dealing *well, the World is up against), Americans (not known for patience, intelligence or wisdom, but known for gung-ho, war-mongering at any cost) and their latest war to bring in the NWO.

            Israel – genocidal lunatics outside any faction of International law and with no respect for human life nor liberty.

            Saudi Arabia – A nut case, in-bred, deviant muppet with trillions in weaponry.

            This is the last chance Russia, Iran Syria, Iraq, The Lebanon and maybe Qatar have to strike first (maybe Egypt o Turkey ??? – otherwise they are all dead ducks to the elitist scum.

            My view only.

      • Deo Cass

        Whatever methods the Syrian government forces use, the US through its propaganda lie factory outlets and its terrorist al-Qaida Hollywood actors will still create false flags to blame the Syrian government. So just get the job done in the most effective way possible. After all, the US did not even bother to massacre 3,200 civilians in Raqqa city. So it is the last who could cry foul!

        • Tudor Miron

          I understand that they (gp brainwashing machine) will blame Assad no matter what he does. But I will say it again – thats their land, their town. Bombing it into dust is not their goal.

      Tigers should roll into Omar Oil Fields and set the agenda tempo.
      Uncle Shlomo has to act to keep SDF on the lease.
      Then you find out if Masonic/Rothschilds Central Banker Putin is going to fight the occupation,
      Or play allong with the next fame turns.
      Syria’s military will get wasted if Putin just signs deconfliction agreements which basically remove Russian military presence.
      Syrian war is turning the page to illegal occupation and all the UN extortions that go with that.
      It’s a turd sandwich. …if your Russia….why fight and waste money when the games a fore gone conclusion.
      Israel needs US to stay, ….US needs Shia Militias to be near so they can move ISUS terror onto Shia.
      Putin knows this is the next game turn….but then…he’s witnessed thus in Chechnya wars were you have to nearly buy off Uncle Sam,Saudi and CIA to go the hell away and wreck someone else’s world.
      Regarding Israhell….they want Hezbollah and IRGC gonzo from their stolen Golan.
      We find out soon if Putin gives them their demand.

        Forget the oil fields now; they are like a bloke with prostrate problems.

        A unsettling comment for which I thank you for.

        We shall know what is seriously going to happen very shortly; lets not fret before we know.

        Cheers – have a nice weekend.

    As the pocket grows smaller the remaining ISIS force will become more concentrated. And considering the fact that these guys are hell-bent on dying in battle, it’s possible the may try to lure the SAA into the urban areas of the town. Probably the last time we’ll hear about one of these ISIS kill zones. To the SAA I say: Be careful, and watch your step!

      F-it … drop the Father of all bombs on the area.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        unfortunately, it is so bigm that you can not put in any russian bomber.

        • Deo Cass

          Of course you could! When it was tested it was launched from a TU95. The TU 160 has an even bigger bomb bay which could accomodate that bomb. On the other hand the SU24 could carry the bomb but on the outside pilons only.

    Brainless ISIS,
    By all logic they should have surrendered.

    Really wish to see their makers

    • Brad Isherwood

      Why surrender when there is lots of US and NATO ATGMs to use.
      ISUS is simply boots on the ground not wearing US or Israeli military outfits,..Maybe the odd Tattoo.
      Syria couldn’t seal their borders,….ISUS just walks in on the easy.
      IF Syria had 60 Attack Helicopters with night vision/thermal targeting,
      That and lots of counter battery fire radar,…well…..ISUS would be done long ago.
      2nd Fall of Palmyra does not happen. ..which costs 1/2 year to recover.
      Sure….Russia and Iran helped, ..but they both used limited assets in this war.
      ISUS is dug in just waiting for VBIED to roll while ATGMs wipe SAA out.
      If Putin/Lavrov sign a East Euphrates deconfliction zone, …
      US will be in Syria like they are in Afghanistan 16 years.
      ISUS in tunnels or mountain ranges = excuse US gets to stay in Syria.
      Putin will smile and call Trump partner.

          There are several websites which have extensive visual coverage of the Masonic /Illuminati symbols used in Sochi Olympic games ceremonies.
          Globalism /NWO,…other labels,…
          This is extension of the 1700s Masonic British Empire and it’s legacy with Bankers and the power of certain Bankers we know of today.
          The Intrigues within the Masonic and the Banking go every direction.
          Playing all sides in geostrategic conflicts…betrayals occur, …wars end with many promises made broken…or grinning and gesture of ..Tricked you!.

          Post WW 2….how does Russia get Rolls Royce jet engines from England?
          RR jet engines, …add captured Nazi scientist and stir…
          Soon it’s Korean War and the boys are at it again in another round of mass genocide.

          Putin/Xi are working the Globalism on there own tact and design.
          It Falls to Rothschilds and Empire to contend with the challenge.
          US had 800 bases worldwide before Putin/Xi created Eurasia economic block and OBOR.

            Problem is, when it comes down to it, words like Illuminati drag the fact into the irrelevant. And only helps the spin doctors convince the stupids to dismiss the facts as conjecture.

            Power and inequality are the goal, and whatever anyone wants to call themselves, is irrelevant.

            Years ago….The net was full of posters fighting the Label False Flag.
            Today…it’s accepted historical fact with most.
            The Sheeple who back the Leaders like Obama or Hillary Clinton just laugh
            And answer…”Ya they lie…deal with it”!

            A short invite into history’s track is usefull in reasoning why conflicts occur
            And extortions….while Narcotics, Guns and same old divide and Conquer game runs.

            I have friends who are Alternative and against Globalism,
            Yet they can’t see that Alex Jones is a Controlled opposition for Deep State
            And Israel.
            So ya….I guess I do ruin people’s slumber of stupidity. …my bad : )
            The upside is…for every poster who gets on about something,
            Lots of others lurking or following along on a thread,…they go research my points and links.

            But the reality is, it is only about inequality. Not Illuminati, Muslims, the USA or Israel. The rich crave power and control. We can ALL relate to this in our day to day behaviors of grabbing as much as we can for ourselves. They use inequality to get it, while they have mindwashed all of us to think inequality is the only way to go, in a world soon no longer requiring it. After all, how can we object to rampant inequality, when it is our way of life too. I find it ludicrous to hear the middle class cry they are being robbed, while they are OK at seeing the poor suffer.

            Fact is, tech unemployment is killing jobs, and once the jobs are done, then our whole way of life does not work. So the only options left are 1)equality, or 2), another form of inequality. That is called globalism. Don’t matter if it is carbon credits, FIAT cash, or whatever. Without having to slave away at jobs to survive, there is no longer a point of money. Yet they will keep some form of money, to keep control of resources, and stay on the top of inequality.

            This research convinced me a long time ago to keep yapping, notwithstanding people hate me for speaking some truths. One can only hope. And knowledge is not only power, it is happiness, at least for me.

            Lots of reason for inequality. Biological and social. But fact is, with technology doing the work, and education changing the mindset, we (humanity) could fix this horror show, at least for our grand-kids. But the herd has to be woken out of its slumber before anything changes.

            Since I litigate debt, I have long been used to inequality, and long have I resisted succumbing to its lure. If I can do it, anyone can. But ya, the biological condition of us v. them, the social paradigm of dog eat dog, combined with the fear of death and the religion that feeds on it? A hard go of it indeed.

            Never have I assumed I could change anything with respect to our world. Except a mind or two. Which I am glad to say, I have done. That is my contribution, as pathetic as it really is. My contribution to the “10%”…..

            Nothing stops me from face palming the ignorance of beLIEf wherever I see it promoting harm on others.

            IMO ? Globalism, with all its mass murder, and greed and envy, is the worst of a bunch of options that have to occur unless we are resigned to killing off this planet. I support globalism, but I don’t support the murder, and the inequality driving it towards total domination and worse inequality.

            People on both sides of that argument hate on me for that truth. :P

    i am not sure ,i am not there but here in the web when u read/hear person almost begging for money u have to ask is there is real “Journalism Principles” ,i am not sure if SOUTHFRONT is a one man operation like that terrorist supporter of the “white helmets” and i am not sure if SF has any sources on the ground but sometimes some articles seems to be like smokes of distraction.

      all newspapers are begging for money. this is normal.

      sometimes they have weird articles here, but the ratio is easily acceptable.

    The SAA and allies should enter from Iraqi side across Euphrati river and surround Abu Kamal city.

  • Ivanus59

    They will also need to cross the river to north of Al Bukamal and move north and north west from there, at least for a little bit… ISIS can’t fight on so many fronts, also Iraqi forces need to secure the north whole north bank of the their part of the river… – A small amount of work compared to everything that was done up until now.

  • juan carlos ayala

    they must cross the river and stop the Yankees

  • wimroffel

    They will need a lot of pumps to inundate all those tunnels.

  • Deo Cass

    I got anonimous information that the US has landed special forces by belicopter masqueraded as ISIS to al-Bukamal. I hope it is just speculation with no truth in it. There were however confirmed reports of military helicopters landing at al-Bukamal, but as far as I know they were said to be Russian and Syrian special forces. Could Southern Front check this information please?

    • Nod

      there is too much evidence supporting the FACT that the USA is Al Qaeda (they created it after all) and that Al Qaeda is now known as the ISIS. The onus is on a person to disprove, IMO. Because the evidence is conclusive, that the USA using the CIA and its Muslim allies to overthrow any government opposed to globalism in the middle east. They want the usury, they want the oil, they want a one world order. And no one is going to stop it. Not Putin, not Assad, not anyone.

      Fact is, once you account for globalism, then understanding world politics is a breeze. It is only the tards who get all caught up in the theater called national politics and fight amongst each other for naught. While the plebes get murdered, robbed, and or invaded, by the US muscles that impose globalist policy for the rich.
