In the Middle East, many are attempting to make moves and forward their interests while the world is focused on escalation in the West Bank.

One such case is the United States and its attempts to move its forces in northeastern Syria.

On May 13, a unit of the Russian Military Police intercepted a US military convoy in the region, which is controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Reportedly, the US military violated the existing mechanisms for conflict avoidance and moved , without prior notice towards the Russian forces.

There was no scuffle, but the large US military unit was forced to withdraw by the small group of Russian military personnel, who ensured the safety of traffic along the M4 highway.

Washington’s forces, however, are receiving reinforcements.

Syrian state outlet SANA reported the entry of a convoy comprising of 55 vehicles in  the Hasaka countryside.

The trucks were loaded with hidden materials; and  there were refrigerated tankers and carriers, accompanied by a number of armored vehicles.

The convoy was heading towards the Rmelan camp, where the US already has heavy equipment.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) remain active in the northeastern region, and have carried out an operation against ISIS.

On May 13th, the SDF dismantled an ISIS cell and arrested 39 terrorists.

The SDF said they also seized a large number of weapons and documents from the terror group.

It was a busy week for the Kurdish force, as it claimed that it had captured 14 ISIS members just two days earlier.

Expectedly, ISIS responded by attacking an SDF checkpoint, and a vehicle of the Kurdish fighters.

According to reports, 1 fighter was injured and 1 was killed.

While the US attempts to dig in and reinforce its positions, and the  SDF is attempting to contain ISIS on its own, Russia is making an effort to contain the movements of the “moderate opposition” in Greater Idlib and Lattakia.

Late on May 12th, Russian airstrikes targeted militants’ positions near the town of Tardin in the northern Lattakia countryside, as well as in the vicinity of the town of Knaddah in the western countryside of Idlib.

A few hours prior to the airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army hit a military vehicle near the town of Bidama in the western Idlib countryside with an anti-tank guided missile.

These operations are necessary, due to the frequent violations by   militant groups   in Greater Idlib.

While the situation in Israel shows no sign of slowing down, many throughout the Middle East, and even further away will try to use the chance to pursue their own goals, as it is clear to see in Syria.

Uh, the headline and article do not match. No major offensives. No dramatic attacks. Just an ambush and some police work.

It will be 2030 and SAA will still be waiting for permission from Uncle Putinyahoo to take back their own land…

jens holm

I dont think thats the point. Assads has no support as well as economy to take anything themself. There is no matters about permission at all.

Russia has exact what they want there, which is what Assads by them, Iran and hesbollah posses.

They can forget the rest. The best place for Assads should be in jail. I hope they never come to Denmark. The already arrived Syurians has an overcrime double as muslims from other countries. I will remind people, that Denmark already has Our own criminals too and we pay about 15 milliarder dansih kroner for also lazybum muslims. In dollars thats 2,6 billions.

Russia is only up there, because they dont like Turks pretending they are basement Osmans.

I also will remind all the morons here, that the half retreating by USA didnt solve anything, because USA also kept away Turkey.

Ill play bicycle by Queen. thats old stuf. You all should prefare bicycles from this.

Denmark is a loyal vassal of England/US/Anglo world/Zion. No one asked for your opinion. We do the destroying, and you take the human victims and shut up. We will take your soldiers as cannon fodder. Shalom.

Its easy to see You dont understand western economy, EU and Nato as they are. And yes we are depended of each other too even we domretimes are very different too.

It seemes You name is NO ONE.

But of course we do pay for what we do in lives and equipment. Thats what responsible people do here.

Its allowed to nmake critisism to whats going on in the world.

If we are vasals by fx USA and others, we are doing pretty well for Our oswn people as well as others. Thats very visible in living standards as well as how we include most people here by raising them into it.

You could learn from here, if You can learn. The vassal today export more to USA then they do to us. We have a GDP at 60.000 dollar. women are well educated and in almost equal right.

We also are inventer of the big windpowrer system as well as 4 have 5 advanced tools at the American Marslander.

From there we see Your next step is planting forrest, so You can contnue to kill each other by bows and arrows too.


Jens you are the only moron here. Everything you say is just so incredibly stupid. “Ill play bicycle by Queen. thats old stuf. You all should prefare bicycles from this.”

edit: you are actually below moronic. You exist on entirely new level of idiocy.

jens holm

Many are attempting in NE Syria and not only USA.

Just some feedback SF, it is much better but, 1. People still can change their names. 2. We can’t block trolls still. 3. Trust.

By far this is better than what you guys had before, but it lacks some features – for example not giving us the option to block. Trust – I don’t care if my email gets lacked, it is a fake one, but some people use real email which may stop them to comment here.


Too many fucking adverts, pop-ups and obstructions.


At this point, Putin should just pull his troops out of Syria. There are zero reasons for even one more Russian to die for protecting what is left of Syria. Let them sort out their country themselves.

Israel is a much better ally, especially since Israel has much more to offer that Syria simply cannot.


Israel is and always will be American ally/vassal/master/ difficult to say what exactly.


You’re having a laff.



jens holm

Its normal procedure as usual and I care less and less.

Soon it will be incorporated as some Hiddits and in the Tora as well.

We rich which are rich because we educate and work and has paid from 1949. Why shpould be pay attention to people, which insist in that kind of stubberness????

Many also comes here. Those are the worst to integrate from the whole world. They are for no change even i a total different country. the overcrime fill out jails as well as safehouses for vomen. hye also contribute well – so to speak – in drug abuse and at least happyly kill their own for soemthing, which they think is honor and respect.

Vomen are worth less the used cars too.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
