The Syrian government has reportedly deployed battle tanks and artillery guns preparing to take back the militant-held parts of southern Syria and the Golan Heights, the Israeli media says.

The Haaretz daily has even complained that Hezbollah has allegedly established a Golan regional command center claiming that a hundred of Hezbollah operatives and a thousand other local residents linked to the movement operate in southern Syria.

The Israeli leadership sees militant groups, even the ISIS-linked Khalid ibn al-Walid Army, operating in the area as a useful tool in its plan to establish a buffer zone near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. So, any Syrian efforts aimed at wiping out these militant groups or even a possibility of such efforts are a cause of the constant Israeli concern.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Liwa al-Quds and the Palestine Liberation Army are preparing for a full-scale military operation against ISIS in the Yarmouk camp area in southern Damascus. According to reports, currently there are about 2,000 ISIS members there that pose a serious security threat to the Syrian capital.

The operation in Yarmouk will likely be started as soon as the last militant stronghold in Eastern Ghouta – the city of Douma – is liberated. A notable number of Jaish al-Islam members still remain there and the evacuation agreement between the group and the Syrian government have not been fully implemented yet because of disagreements within the Jaish al-Islam leadership. If the agreement is not implemented, the SAA will be forced to resume its military actions in the area.

Hundreds of locals from the cities of Hasakah and Qamishli have joined Syrian government forces, the country’s media reports. According to pro-government sources, the newly formed units will be incorporated into the SAA.

It’s interesting that locals from the cities, which are formally located within the area controlled by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), are actively joining government forces even now when the relations between the SDF and Damascus are especially complicated.

A new anti-SDF/anti-US resistance group has appeared in the SDF-held area. The group entitled “Popular Resistance in Eastern Region” has vowed to fight the SDF and US-backed forces in eastern Syria.

Despite the claims that this group is sympathetic to the SAA, there is little known about the group and no facts can confirm its supposed links to the Syrian government. Some experts even say that the group may be a part of the wider PR campaign aimed at pressuring the US to withdraw from or reduce its forces in Syria.

      The result of having a corporate owned military.
      Profits are more important than reliability.

        Remarkable to me …… personally I think it broke down.

  • Eskandar Black

    The Russians should collects the Jaysh al-Islam bodies, mix them with bacon and cow shit, and fertilize the uninhabitable parts of the desert.

    • john

      It’s a good idea but such a mix of fertilizer will only contaminate anything pure and decent . . .

      • Eskandar Black

        nothing grows in the deir ezzor desert anyway.

  • Antonovs

    Awesome news, finish them off.

    So now that this war is practically over, can all the migrants go back to Nigeria?

    • outer_rl

      The Nigerians I know in England are hard workers

      • First Lastname

        They can work hard in Nigeria, you cuck.

        • outer_rl

          Don’t be silly, there’s nothing wrong with people legally moving around and living in different countries.

          And I’m not married.

          • First Lastname

            There is something wrong with it: it’s called demographic replacement.

          • outer_rl

            Replacement is the removal of one thing and introduction of another. That’s not what’s happening in any Western countries, the native born population is mostly staying put.

          • First Lastname

            Being outbred and miscegenated is replacement. We have nowhere else to go. Best case scenario, we’re becoming an abused and hated minority, like our brothers in South Africa. Do you want that for us? Do you want that for yourself?

          • outer_rl

            If you don’t want to be out bred, then have more children. However there’s no sign that natives are becoming a minority in any Western country.

            Still, yes, actually, a bit of miscegenation might be fun. After all, opposites attract. If people want to marry partners from other races, that’s their right.

          • First Lastname

            Your ancestors are ashamed of you.

          • outer_rl

            I don’t think my ancestors were shallow enough to judge people by their skin colour.

          • First Lastname

            Do you actually think that natural selection only affected skin pigmentation? Evolution doesn’t end at the neck.

          • outer_rl

            I don’t think geographical variances are natural selection through adaptation, I think they’re the result of small, peculiar communities migrating to different regions and expanding rapidly in numbers.

          • First Lastname

            However they occurred, do you recognize there more are differences between the races than levels of skin pigmentation?

          • outer_rl

            There are regional differences in biology that are more than skin deep, but these are less than the differences between individuals of the same region. And judgements the intelligence, temperament and even culture of people from different continents and countries owe more to prejudice than to reality. There is however only one human race.

          • First Lastname

            Homo Sapien isn’t a race, it’s a species. Secondly, standardized IQ tests aren’t prejudice, they’re reality. You’re anti-science. And because you support the mass immigration of non-Whites into Europe and North America, you’re anti-White.

          • outer_rl

            I’m pro human freedom. White is a colour, it has no interests and no feelings, and we owe it no loyalty. Entry though the pearly gates of paradise will not be granted on the basis of skin colour.

          • First Lastname

            Of course white is a color. But the subset of homo sapien called Cacuasoid is much more than skin pigmentation, as are the other subsets. Also, I’m not going to discuss religion. Only empiricism for the purpose of this conversation.

          • outer_rl

            Empiricism relates to experience, so technically that encompasses religious experience, but I’m okay to put that aside for now.

            I’m glad you know Caucasian is more than skin pigmentation, because it’s actually not skin pigmentation at all, considering that not only Europeans but also Arabs and Indians are Caucasian, so that encompasses all skin colours from white Nordic to black Sri Lankan.

            Empiricism says that all the great empires were mixed race. The Caesars made both Gauls and Numidians into Senators of Rome. Empiricism says that human society is ruled by historical materialism, and the onward march of progress cares nothing for individual heritage. We’ll sooner be replaced by machines than go back to the age where people live in isolated communities of others who look the same as them.

            Really? You think multi ethnic people are more easily controlled? On what observations do you base this hypothesis?

          • Kell McBanned

            Your kidding right? Lol Rothschilds/British empire divide and rule, Diversity + Proximity = War.

            Geopolitics 101

          • outer_rl

            Divide and rule is done by encouraging racism. If you want to oppose the tyranny of the elites, you have to oppose racism. Unite and lead.

  • Icarus Tanović

    That would be great if Daraa would be in Syrian hands again.

  • Sinbad2

    These Jaish al-Islam dudes have staged a gas attack and killed innocent civilians, just to give western governments and media some anti Syrian propaganda.
    Enough of the mr nice guy stuff, just kill them.
