The Syrian Army Tiger Forces and Tribal forces have liberated Bir al-Zamlah, Bir Rumaylan, Eastern Zamlah, the Zamlah pumping station and the gas fields of Zalmah and Khala, and Fahed and Dubaysan oil fields from ISIS terrorists in the southern part of Raqqah province.

Meanwhile, 12 Syrian soldiers have been allegedly killed in Hamima village in the eastern Homs countryside as a result of an ISIS attack started with VBIED. ISIS also claimed that it destroyed two SAA tanks with ATGMs and captured a T-62 tank, a bulldozer, 23mm and 12.7mm guns and two Konkurs missiles. A fighting is ongoing in the area.

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) claimed on Sunday that its special operation units have managed to detonate a VBIED inside the Al-Mina al-Bida Naval base operated by the Syrian Navy in the northern part of Lattakia province. According to HTS, the attack killed and wounded of a number of Syrian service members. Some pro-government media argued that the photos are fake. However, local sources said that the explosion took place but without significant damage to equipment or personnel.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are still facing significant problems with breaking the ISIS defense inside the city of Raqqah. Almost no gains were made during last few days. According to Kurdish sources, 200 new US servicemen have joined the Raqqah advance in order to help the SDF to overcome these difficulties. A notable number of US Special Operations Forces units had been already involved in the operation, acting as forward air controllers and snipers and overseeing SDF units.

At the same time, the US-led coalition is attempting to solve the growing tensions between the SDF and local Arabs as well as between Kurdish and Arab factions of the US-backed force. They key problem is that nobody on the ground believes in the mainstream media mantra about so-called Arab allies of the coalition that allegedly are the core of the US-backed force. The SDF is almost fully controlled by Kurdish militias that are going to establish a full political and security control over the city and to include it into their self-proclaimed Kurdish-dominated federation after the defeat of ISIS.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday said that he opposes the ceasefire deal in southern Syria brokered by the United States and Russia. The reason is that the agreement does not serve so-called Israeli interests. According to Netanyahu, the agreement perpetuates Iranian plans to set up a long-term presence on Israel’s northern border.

    What can we expect from such the rabid child-killer as Netanyahu. A hyena is a gentle thing compared to that murderer of humanity. He is now beginning to shake in his boots at the prospect of Syria and Iraq kicking the shit out of his ISIS backed pigs, the loss of the stolen Golan Heights and being overrun by Hezbollah and The Syrian Army. During the ’73 war he had Egyptian prisoners of war dig their own graves and buried them alive, and Egypt in these days support the Gaza blockade, the annexing of all Palestinian territories and kiss the Zionist ass. How shameful. But let the bastard sweat, he has good reason to.

    The Jews started the first world war and the second.
    They get rich off of wars where Goyim’s die fighting Goyim’s.
    Jews will always destroy everyone else’s lands for get rich quick schemes.

      Israel is the problem not the Djews. Neturei Karta qv.

      • Samuel Boas

        The jews are also the problem. There eternal lust for power no matter the costs. Why else have they been kicked out of dozens of countries over the years. Give them a finger and they take the whole hand.

        The Ashkenazi-Jews you refer to came from the Khazarian-Empire, which is modern Turkey. After the Huns attacked the Ashkenazi-Jews these Jews then invaded the ingenious European Tribal peoples ancestral home lands.
        Since then they have been a problem.
        Israel is not the problem. Is Israel were owned and run by Palestinians and ethnic-Hebrews there would be no problem.
        Ashkenazi-Jews who are really Khazar’s are totally the problem! hahaha

        • stringball

          Fuck off Nazi KKKunts. You are doing Israel’s work for it. They’re growing fat off anti-Semitism.

      jews started the end of ice age

      • PZIVJ

        Not to mention the collapse of the Roman Empire.
        Check your history :p

        • Solomon Krupacek

          ysou are totally UN-scientific!

          jews have big nose. they warm up more air. the more bignosyjews, the more warm air breath out. this lead to collapse of ice walls…

          Look up the lone surviver from the Masda siege that was taken back to Rome and their subsequent influence, look up Black Nobility of Venice.
          The Barbarian tribes were just asymptom of Romes weakness, why was it weak???

          • PZIVJ

            Perhaps a bridge to far?
            If I recall my history Rome lost 4 legions crossing the Rhine river, and still would not give up the fight. Such is the cost of a military dictatorship that feels it must expand in order to survive.

          • Real Anti-Racist Action

            Rome became a multi-racial empire such as Babylon became towards the end of their demise and the same with Persia and Greece and the UK and now the USA.
            When a Republic turns multi-racial then it morphs into a rapid Empire that quickly falls in on itself and looses all sense of cohesion, neighborhoods get divided and IQ’s fall.
            That is how most mega Empires fall apart.

          • tigbear

            Some say the Masada story is fake.

          • Kell

            The survivor that went backto Rome and poisoned the Republic?

            Cant remember where I read about it, maybe William Coopers “Behold a pale Horse”

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Historians can’t fins any truth to the story other than a place with 9 people who committed suicide, but this is in line with Jew mentality over play the numbers .

          • Pat Kittle

            You mean 6 million did NOT die at Masada??

      • Kell
      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        No they did not. That is factually incorrect.
        You are wrong again and yet another claim.

        • Pat Kittle

          No proof, just denial??

      • Pat Kittle

        Actually Jews started the ISIS Age.

        Netanyahu obviously is desperate to keep it going.

        The time is coming when Israel will be held accountable for its war crimes — the worst war crimes in history, BAR NONE.

  • Sadde

    Israeli logic gets more comical every day…
    The agreement concerns INtra SYRIAN parties hence not intended to serve Israeli interests.

  • Bill Wilson

    These asshole SF writers do a miserable job of twisting facts.

  • SOF

    Nut-yahoo is another Cabal Deep State puppet. His air force continue to give the SAA problems but somehow the S300 and S400 batteries are not doing enough or their electronics have been leaked to the Israelis.

    • as

      SAA just can’t add up more adversaries at this time. Most of them fighting on the ground know very well their enemy include US and Israel.

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        Shooting down ISIS air-force minuses problems, it does not add problems.
        Syria and Israel are already at war, the war has been non stop for decades.
        Right now Israel is winning and conquering Syrian territory, and hopefully the Christian-Shia-Sunni-Alawite-Zoroastrian alliance can revers these losses and liberate Syria’s heartland.
        Ever before the war with ISIS broke out, Israel was bombing power-plants in Eastern Syria and even then Russian air defense could not even spot the Israeli Air Force planes or helicopters flying from one end of Syria to the other.

    Why should it include Israel interests in any way ?

    It’s incredible what the Terrorist Theocracy of Eretz Israel gets away with.

    Even if Hitler did everything these shysters claim he did (he didn’t), he’d still be an amateur compared to Israel’s war criminals.
