In Hama province, the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces and its allies have been continuing operations against the joint terrorist forces. Intense clashes are ongoing at the Tell Buzam front. Russian and Syrian warplanes are pounding terrorist units near Ma’an, Souran and Tal Al-Sawwan as a pretext for further offensives by the government forces.

The High Command of the Syrian Arab Army and militant groups started negotiations on allowing the militant groups’ members a free passage from the eastern Aleppo pocket. In case of success, the army will set control of Bustan Al-Qasir Neighborhood. Nonetheless, Jabhat al-Nusra and Nour Eddine Al-Zinki, that are main striking forces of the Jaish al-Fatah operation room in Aleppo, refuse to negotiate with the government.

Over 600 militants have handed over their heavy weapons and military equipment to the Syrian army in Damascus countryside. About 200 militants and their families will be evacuated from al-Hamah and Qudsiyah while others will use an opportunity to get a pardon from the government. Then, the government forces will set full control of al-Hamah and Qudsiyah.

The US and Saudi Arabia have agreed to grant free passage to over 9,000 of Islamic State terrorists before the Iraqi city of Mosul is stormed. The jihadists will be redeployed to fight against the government in Syria, the media reported, citing various military and diplomatic sources. This will allow them to carry out operations against the government-controlled cities of Deir Ezzor and Palmyra. Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Directorate will be the mediator and guarantor of the agreement.

US President Barack Obama has allegedly sanctioned an operation to liberate Mosul, due to take place in October. Redeployment of 9,000 ISIS fighters from Mosul will allow Washington the widely-needed PR success in fight against terrorism in Iraq to balance the de-facto support of terrorist factions, including Al-Qaeda linked Jabhat Al-Nusra, in Syria.

Meanwhile, the first photos, which allegedly depict the Russian heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser “Admiral Kuznetsov” on the way to Syria’s shores, have appeared in social media outlets. Initial reports suggested that the warship is set to depart to the Syrian coast to take part in the ongoing anti-terrorist operation in the period from October 15 to October 20.

That isis should be permitted to slip out of Iraq and return to the fighting in Syria is something I have expected to happen. After all isis is only a terrorist organization once it crossed the border into Iraq. Back in Syria they are moderate opposition. But what do the Iraqis think of this? Would they be a party to this redeployment of terrorist?

Jens Holm

Moderate in Syria – for whome. Seems lige You are one of those ignorat assholes.

Otto Heinrich Wehmann

A convoy of 9000 ISIS terrorists moving in the desert……….hummmm.


Hummmmmm, tasty food for aerial bombs.


A banquet.


Amen Amen Amen.


Time to use tactical nuclear weapons when they cross into Syria, Syria have the RIGHT to defend their TERRITORY from and INTERNATIONAL INVADING MERCENARY TERRORISTS BRIGADE.

Jens Holm

Might try a pilot of them in Your garden first.

Real Anti-Racist Action

Nuclear is not needed at all. They could drop Hydrogen bombs instead or Neutron Bombs and avoid the radiation and war crimes. Better just to drop high explosive ordnance from heavy bombers instead of light-bombers.


You do know that Hydrogen bombs and Neutron Bombs are infact powerd by Nuclear right?

I’d suggest using Thermobaric weapons instead like the russian “Father of All Bombs”

Joseph Scott

Also, Neutron bombs explicitly kill with radiation rather than blast and heat, an are designed to produce more radiation than an equivalent weapon to accomplish that.


Yes, i know all this.

Joseph Scott

I assumed you did know this. I was adding to what you said (which is why I replied to you) but the comment was for the benefit of the person who suggested using such weapons, as they seemed less clear on the nature of the weapon.

Carol Davidek-Waller

Hiring terrorists to kill other hired terrorists is ‘much needed’ PR success?? Last I heard it was an domestic and international crime to support terrorists and terrorism.

Tom Tom

Thanks, Obomber!

aba opaco

Russia should bomb these terrorists as they get into Syria.

Tom Tom

they should bomb them in Iraq w/Iraqi gov’t permission.


Shia militias will redeploy from Iraq to Syria as Daesh are weakened/isolated in Iraq. And that will make much more of an impact than Daesh strugglers.

Jens Holm

Dont think so. Bagdad shia only wish what they have and free pipeline for themselves from northern Irak.

Jens Holm

Well – Thats what I think. Much more energi where Assads are and in the Lebanese Iranian rocket colony.


Iran will take care of things by offering money and citizenship, no worries.

Brad Isherwood

A soft partition exists in Syria already. If Erdogan does not flip again. …the North border should dry up for Takfiri. ISIS are trapped in Raqqa with no future. Der Ezzor region is also soft partition. ..with more Takfiri mercs kooks on the way.

If** …The Russian/ Syrian TAC air can keep Jordan/Syria border region from being fully controled By Takfiri…..there will be NO Saudi/Qatar Pipeline. In time….the Takfiri will be pushed out of Syria east…. US can play hero vs AL qeada. …and kick chairs accross the room in frustration.

Russia and Syria can slant drill and Frac the Zionist oil concession from Syrian Side Of Golan.

Future Losers. ….Israel and the Platform shoe midget of Jordan. Palestinians will over run both in the Future : )

Jens Holm

bork bork

Kafir – Kafir , so what are Yourself mukra or non mukra or just far out.

Cant see those ISIS`s comming in contact with any Kaidas as well, Might have used to much soap and heat cleaning flags in the washing machine round and round.

Jens Holm

Next might be to clean most ot the muslims, so they can be homogenized more again. Many would prefare their tungs were gone too.

The US and Saudi Arabia have agreed to grant free passage to over 9,000 of Islamic State terrorists before the Iraqi city of Mosul is stormed.


Well what’s the source for that claim?

I could believe it of Saudi Arabia, that’s what they’d want to do, but there’s no way that the US would go along with that.

SOURCE please!

Jens Holm

Might be the this artikel is a fake.

But You are a scum.

IF ISIS LEAVE MOSUL – several 100.000 civilians are saved in fightings in the city as well not many should be evacuated.

But those civilians dont count . The russian way. Welll might be a fake. But i prefare that trade for other solutations incl. starving out. Soldiers alwayg get the last food.


Western coalition claim to at war with ISIS, but ISIS remains ever convenient card to pull out as justification to keep interfering militarily in Iraq and Syria, whose leaderships are not exactly on the US favorites list. The Pentagon were well aware of who was backbone of Syrian revolt in 2012 – AlQueada/Muslim Brotherhood/ Saudi backed Salafists – but chose to support them anyway that this saw a breakaway rogue AQ elements morphing into ISIS is hardly surprising. Neither therefore, is it surprising US would allow ISIS open transit from Mosul into Syria at present, as it grants two immediate US goals, finally a win in Iraq for domestic US Obama/Clinton election campaign purposes and a further front/ assault on the Syrian state at time when latter is clearly winning on ground against the foreign backed proxies.

Bill Rood

You forgot your tag.

Jens Holm

So fare this is pure spekulations. But getting civilians out of steady bombings is a good idea. Will take this as fakes, but also a way out of some of it.

I would rather prefare US and kurds taking all the Eufrat in Syria and hope for a breakdown for ISIS, but Kurds and Nato hasnt troops enough for it.


US & Saudis giving ‘free passage ‘ for 9000 ISIS fighters to move into Syria to fight SAA before any attacks on Iraqi Mosul. So essentially the coalition will ‘liberate’ a city that they have already moved the terrorists out of, just like Turkey recently did with Jarabulus. This maneuvering is about getting a win without real costs on the Obama scoreboard, for US, to get Clinton a needed boost in elections. Openly allowing ISIS terrorists to transfer into a neighboring country unhindered – Syria – to fight the SAA, that’s Washington’s idea of ‘war on terror’ folks.

john mason

If this admission by the US and Saudi is not in violation of International Law and the Nuremberg Doctrine then there is no point in abiding to these Laws by any other nation and it condemns the UN as a useless organization that has surpassed its’ used by date.

Jean de Peyrelongue

The US and Saudi Arabia have agreed to grant free passage to over 9,000 of Islamic State terrorists before the Iraqi city of Mosul is stormed. Moving from Mossul to Palmyre is about 500km. I do not see how they will be able to do that move with theirs weapons and tanks without being bombed by Russia and Syria air forces. They would have to storm the Deir ez-Zor Governorate, it is not going to be easy. I do not think this to be a realistic plan. Furthermore I do not see Irak signing such a plan which would be very aggressive towards Syria.

Jean de Peyrelongue

Concerning the evacuation of the terrorists from Mossul. Who can trust KSA or the US ? certainly not Bagdad or Damascus and the terrorists would have to be desesperate to have confidence in KSA or the US word. That Obama would like to end his mandate with a some kind of Victory, like Mossul’s liberation, make sense. To achieve that, he may be tempted to do what the French did for Valmy( i.e. buy the ennemy.) At that time it was the Duke of Brunswick but I think it is easier to but princes than to buy terrorists. Good luck to tose nasty KSA and the US!

Obomber SUCKS.

Gary in Ottawa

WTF does this mean ?

“The US and Saudi Arabia have agreed to grant free passage to over 9,000 of Islamic State terrorists before the Iraqi city of Mosul is stormed. The jihadists will be redeployed to fight against the government in Syria …”
