The US-led coalition is preventing the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies from liberating the last ISIS stronghold in Syria, al-Bukamal city,the Hezbollah media wing in Syria claimed on November 15.

The media outlet added that the US-led coalition is aiding ISIS by jamming the SAA communications and even blocking some part of the airspace over al-Bukamal.

The Hezbollah media wing added that clashes are still ongoing around al-Bukamal and in some districts in the city. However, no SAA advance was reported.

From its side, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq, reported that ISIS fighters targeted a gathering of SAA soldiers west of al-Bukamal city with an ATGM. Seven soldiers of the SAA were killed in the ATGM strike according to Amaq.

Meanwhile, Kurdish sources claimed that the US-backed-Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reached Abu Hammam town on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, 45km northwest of al-Bukamal city. However, these claims are yet to be confirmed by the SDF.

The SDF rapid advance towards al-Bukamal city could be a desperate attempt to reach the city, or at least to capture some positions north of it to give the US-led coalition a close eye on the SAA activates in the al-Bukamal border crossing in the future.

    This is unbelievable until a week SAA had the city, now Daesh has 80% of the city back in their hands. So many ATGM’s are been fired, what is the purpose of all this who is in there why are they so desperate to hold that city or this is another played card by the US and the SDF(aka PKK) terrorists so they can have more time in Syria it is obviously that SDF are ally of ISIS so I am wondering why all this, ISIS was defeated almost in the City so how they suddenly started to gain control and shoot that much ATGM’s.
    So what happen SAA had the city did they were trowed out of the city by Daesh how many dead etc.
    Something very messy is going on in there.

    • Tudor Miron

      ISIS, Al Qaeda, SDF, FSA (and the rest of those rats) are nothing also than irregular armed forces of NWO gang.

    • Drinas

      To be fair, ISIS is using every resource it has left vs the SAA while virtually ignoring SDF..Also the area is far from the forward deployed russian forces and quite far from Hmeimim air base so CAS (Close Air Support) is very difficult to be deployed effectively.

      • dutchnational

        SDF has reported several counterattacks by IS on several positions they recently took.

        Maybe the difference lies partly in that the IS counterattacks on SAA are much more successful then on the SDF. Partly this could be the result of SAA and allies time and again neglecting their flanks and to faults in SAA internal communications and bad Command decisions.

        • Alex

          Maybe it’s because the sdf advancing when isis and saa are in full battle with each other, remember that they have started their advance when saa has reached Deir Ezor. LOL , they spent 8 or 9 months leveling Rakka to the ground and now you want to tell me that they are more effective than saa ?

          • João Leston

            Never forget the deals with the terrorists. Was it not the USA and SDF that said “we don’t negotiate with terrorists” xD I should not be laughing, it’s a dreadful subject for the people of syria. USA, Saudi A. and Israel really messed a lot of countries for no good reason.

          • John Whitehot

            yeah, they never negotiate with terrorists, unless they have to fight with them.
            In that case, they remember the Geneva convention, although when they kill civilians with drones or deport innocents they point out that the terrorist haven’t signed the Geneva convention so they can’t appeal to it.

        • Justin
        • John Whitehot

          no, the difference lies mainly in that ISIS fights much harder against the SAA while it just melts away when it fights the SDF. If they took SDF positions it wouldn’t be a surprise if the SDF retook it by bringing their flags and uniforms to ISIS along with the orders from Usrael to switch colors.

      What messy? They’ve been stabed in back feom ISIS positions west of La Bukamal. As simple as that. Now, ISIS has reinforcements (guess who let them in Syria over border with Jordan, close to Al Tanf?) and many TOWs but it won’t help them, as soon as Tiger forces reaxh the city from the north and northwest they’re done and done, man.

    I use to like the YPG/YPJ back in the day… then they started hanging around with that shady SDF crew the US cooked up. God has a sense of humor – maybe the YPG/YPJ will attack the SDF from behind and throw them and their CENTCOM masters out of Syria. I mean, they have to know the US is going to throw them under the bus eventually. Best to start the post-war house-cleaning of Syria early.

    • Pál Póli

      Well said!

      • Dennis R

        Are you applauding anti-CENTCOM comments coming from a guy who’s named after a piece of US ordinance??? Pave Way bombs? LOL….moron. And do you two IDIOTS really not know the facts enough to distinguish the groups fighting Daesh? THE MAJORITY OF THE SDF (*AND THE US SPECIAL FORCES LEADING THEM) ARE IDEOLOGICALLY IDENTICAL TO THE YPG!!! HOW STUPID CAN YOU GUYS BE???? HAVEN’T ANY OF YOU VOLUNTEERED OR EVEN VISITED THESE PLACES INSTEAD OF LIVING ON FACEBOOK AND THINKING THE HORSESH-T YOU READ THAT RUSSIA PUTS OUT ONLINE AS FACT?
        TRY GETTING OFF YOUR ASS AND DOING SOMETHING. I have been on the ground and seen the facts, and my friends (who I’ve known since high school) who serve in the US military’s SOF units over in the N.E districts of Syria fighting Daesh would just laugh hysterically at nearly ALL the PRAVDA-ESQUE, IRANIAN PROXY BULLSH-T ARTISTS YOU IDIOTS INVEST YOUR TIME IN READING ABOUT!! Try setting foot in these places, meeting the people, etc before posting even more ridiculously trolling lies about Israel, NATO, the US, etc….I mean, “best to start the post war house-cleaning of Syria early”?
        YOU AGREE WITH THAT???? “Well said” you wrote…LMAO. Ok!! You must be such an intellectual giant….lol. Yes, everything’s cool in Syria, and the axis of CENTCOM and ISIS (LOL i can’t even type it without laughing at you) are totally gone…..all is safe there. In fact!! I have a great idea….if you agree with all that crap so much, why dont you do what the rest of us do? GO HELP! Maybe we’ll get lucky and a stray mortar round from your precious butt buddies in the Russian/Iranian backed militias hits you in the ass.

        • Pave Way IV

          It’s fucking Paveway Dennis. One word. Look it up. Your autistic caps-lock screeching loses what little impact it might possibly have when you make up your own vocabulary and grammatical rules.

    • Dennis R

      THE YPG??? SHADY SDF?? You actually DON’T KNOW what you’re saying do you? You don’t realize the majority of veteran fighters and leadership of the YPG (many of which used to fight Al-Nusra and ISIS/Daesh in the FSA, while the others, the Kurds, were the originators of the YPG) and the funny thing is that the SDF is almost identical to the YPG….the majority of both groups are Kurdish allies of the U.S and are trying to free the rural districts still terrorized by Daesh, even risking their lives and their families’ lives to do so!!!!
      But man……You really should be awarded a trophy for ignorance or something (with a name like Pave Way? You talk sh-t on CENTCOM and yet you named yourself after US Air Force ordinance? A BOMB WE MADE AND USED TO FIGHT ALONGSIDE SYRIA DURING DESERT STORM? LOL…..wow…..stupidity is rampant. I’d hate to be you)

      • Pave Way IV

        Hey Professor Caps-lock: Everything you know about the Syrian Kurds, the YPG/YPJ and SDF comes from a few slimy London PR firms paid for with my tax dollars. Nobody hears from the little people Syrian Kurds. Try to distinguish between my opinions and the steaming pile of narrative you may understand as ‘the truth’. I know the Kurds in the original YPG/YPJ were not land, water or oil thieves and had no desire to claim non-Kurd land after it was cleared of ISIS. Everything else after that smells of CIA and CENTCOM.

        I did love the bit about the SDF even risking their families lives to defeat ISIS. It had echos of the typical US strategy: “…Sometimes you have to kill people to save them. It’s a risk we’re willing to take!”

        And Paveway IV is British precision-guided bomb made by Raytheon UK and used by the Royal Air Force. It’s a piece of ordnance, not and ordinance. The USAF doesn’t use them. They plan on using them with the F-35 some day, but the big ‘milestone’ announce last year was that they were able to release a Paveway IV. What they don’t say is that the F-35 weapons bus wasn’t able to communicate with it at all, so they couldn’t target or arm it, making it about as effective as releasing a log. More contract Mumbai programmers should have all the kinks worked out in… well, next week. Maybe. They promise.

        And I don’t ‘talk shit’ about CENTCOM. i point out what treasonous fucks the leaders are for constantly terrorizing US citizens with their imaginary (or manufactured) AOR threat du jur that magically appear a few years after the new Saudi mosques and madrasas appear. Mostly I resent the cowardly fucks for turning the old Rapid Deployment JTF into an entire fucking unified command to support their Neocon & Chickenhawk ForeverWar©. Historians will spitefully piss on CENTCOM commanders’ graves some day for the way they debased the purpose of the US military and wasted lives.

        If US generals want to fellate their Israeli and Saudi/UAE ‘peers’ all day long pretending to fight terrorism while oblivious to the fundamental Saudi Wahhabism freakshow source of ALL terrorism right under CENTCOM’s nose, then fine. Just don’t do it 1) on my dime 2) with US troops or equipment 3) from illegal or unconstitutional foreign US bases, or 4) while spewing any nonsense about protecting US interests or ‘valuable allies’.

        US interests are clearly spelled out in the US Constitution – a document the self-serving command staff asses in CENTCOM and the Pentagon seems unable to comprehend in principle or spirit.

      • L’Obelisk Jewellers

        US.NEVER WAS THERE TO FIGHT AL-NUSRA,DAESH OR ISIS! KURDS ARE TRATORES THEY DESERVE TO BE ABANDONED BY THE TREASIONOUS USA.F.U …AND YOUR DESERT STORME ! GO AND SAVE THE USA .FROM ITSELF !ITS CRAMBLING !!!

  • Garga

    BuKamal is more important than all the oilfields in Syria’s east at this phase. As long as Syria and Iraq don’t connect the terror won’t vanish. Everybody knows it and so does the US. Ever wondered why HTS and terror brothers suddenly intensified their attacks in the west?

    I just hope the US not be too desperate to act directly.

    • dutchnational

      In a border the length of the Syrian / Iraqi one, it all hangs on just one city?

      Even if a hightway runs through the city, a new one can be build fairly rapidly of they want. So the city is not at all crucial for a connection between Iraq and Syria on the mid or long term. On the short term, maybe but even that is doubtfull.

      • John Whitehot

        in this case i have to partly agree with you, although we still dont know many things.

        • You can call me Al

          Please see post above from “Justin”……

          • John Whitehot

            yeah, i saw it and it’s a point.

            on the other side, i exercise restraint. too many folks think they know it all here lately, i prefer to know that i don’t know and keep things isolated to single comments.

          • Tudor Miron

            I better wait and see it unfolding… Situation is interesting. Russia using strategic bombers around Al Bukamal is a clear sign that they are serious about it. Head choppers together with their US/Israely commanders are desperate and who knows whats their next move? I don’t.

          • John Whitehot

            i have the same feeling.
            Last night, unspecified Russian long range bombers performed strikes in the area that weren’t reported by many sources.

            Not much info is coming from that area, that’s a given.

            Yet there are signs of discord in the so called SDF and yanks are nervous about something.

          • Tudor Miron
          • You can call me Al

            I do agree with that, but without us all, throwing things on the table (however bizarre), we shall not get to the bottom of this.

      • Deo Cass

        It is instead. The US is already occupying al-Tanf border crossing and can target any Syrian convoy heading from or to Iraq for a distance of 100km. If the US invades al-Bukamal they would have total control of the Iraq/Syria border. The Syrian army and allies must throw everything they have at ISIS into this vital battle for the survival of the Syrian state. The stakes are too high. The US has already stated that it has no intention to leave Syria. So every inch of Syria lost, is lost forever and annexed to the US greater Israel conveniently dubbed ‘The Free Syrian Federation’, unless Russia gets its act together and starts showing its teeth. But that is highly unlikey from past experience. So go Syria and allies, liberate al-Bukanal and cross the Euphrayes river and liberate what’s left on the Eastern banks, cost what it may. Start moving now!

        This road is important because there will be no time to build another!
        There is a war about to start in Lebanon and the SAA will be attacking the SDF without delay! This road is important!
        It keeps the Kurdish rats on the other side of the Euphrates!

            I like to be as accurate and descriptive as possible as many goyim are still not aware of this.

          • Justin

            he is a long time SDF supporter! So much so that he tries to call out “fake news” when this site states that 6 SDF died instead of 5!

            He basically polices this site only where the SDF matter!

            U will barely see him comment on any news page which excludes the SDF from being mentioned!

            If u read enough of his posts, it is easy to see how biased he is!
            1 year a go he was pretending to barrack for SAA forces but almost always criticising them! He just couldn’t hold in his distain even though, I’m sure, his handlers tell him to not be so one sided!

            But he fails, he would war game for the enemy but never against the SDF! Only against the SAA!

            he has NEVER said a bad word about the SDF! NEVER!

            He knows they support isis. He just tries to make the readers of this site believe they do not!Thats his job!

            But he can never answer stuff like this!
            This picture below illustrates the timeline in which the SDF made a sudden rush toward DeZ when the SAA had almost reached it!
            It also illustrates how correct the Russians were when they shows the US SF bases within ISIS territory that were never attacked!

            Dutch has NO ANSWER to this evidence!
            he stays very quiet!

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5c945b933f5ac11950f902e9d4430cb169cae4847d1131bcc462d5c1cf3cb941.jpg

          • Justin
          • Justin

            copy /save these pictures and ask DutchNational to explain how this happened! Tell him to explain the US bases within ISIS territory!

            by the way it was only 1 day in which the SDF cut through ISIS’s heavily manned oil rich region! It all occurred between September 8 and September 9 but the yellow region was not coloured in until September 10!

            This was 70km in which the SDF cut through with almost no battles with ISIS!

            HOW??

            The US only made “deals” with isis in Raqqa, but that was later!

            He knows why they could Achieve this! So do u and I! He just can’t tell u the truth about it!

            He doesn’t respond either because he knows ill copy his reply so everyone can have a good laugh at his stupid comments!

            Trust me, he is a paid troll! 100%!
            he’s been here for a few years!

          • Dennis R

            You are SOOOO ignorant. I speak to several high school friends (I’m 35 so I’ve known them my whole life and trust what they tell me) in the US Army’s Special Operations units moving with the SDF in the N.E of Syria and sorry, but our units are bombing ISIS positions daily. 11 SDF bases doesn’t mean they are ACTUAL United States military bases….or that we even built/maintain half of them!! Where do you get your facts?
            I get mine from someone ON THE GROUND in a district just outside the Al-Hasakah region (if I spelled that right) and ALL THEY SEE is the Assad-led militias, SAA, IRGC/Quds Force/Hezbollah elements and intel units, covered by Russia’s air power, kill thousands upon thousands of regular people in towns that Daesh merely hides in, not necessarily TOOK OVER. But how would Iran and Russia know? They push SAA forces up front, expecting them to be brave and try to help, and what happens? Genocide….The SDF shows up with US Special Operations units leading the way, and what happens?????? WE bring food, water, securtiy (or try to for as long as we can/or as long as we’re allowed to stay in that AOR) and use drone-launched 12-lbs warhead Hellfire missiles, NOT BARREL BOMBS AND SARIN GAS, whenever we do use force.
            It’s people like you spreading your ignorance and retardation that cause people to be wary of help merely because it’s Western, and it’s people like you who scare children away from a helping hand just because it’s an “infidels” hand….ugh, disgusting. YOU and people like you need to a hit in the head with a f–king tack hammer, that’s how stupid you are.

          • Justin

            I read everything u wrote to me but im sorry to say it was all just blather! I / WE have heard this a lot!
            What really bugs me is when people like u say u get intel from the ground! Spec Ops would NEVER release intel especially to American “friends” who are just civilians!
            Next “Qui bono” Who benefits! I love this quote because we all know who does!

            Next, my favourite words that u spoke “NOT BARREL BOMBS AND SARIN GAS”!

            I LOVE that u mentioned this because its the best comments that someone can make who support the USA and their rebel forces!

            Firstly educate me on what a “BARREL BOMB” is!
            Please, this is not a joke!
            I really want to know because it really boggles the mind on how STUPID someone can be to make up such a name!

            Do u understand what i mean and why it is pure propaganda?
            Lets just agree that a BOMB is created to kill people and destroy objects!
            Im sure u and i agree on that!
            So what is the DIFFERENCE between a Bomb and a Barrel bomb when BOTH are made to kill??

            Is a barrel bomb cheaper? Well if it is then its a better bomb because its cheap or it is less effective because its cheap!

            So what is so EVIL about a Barrel bomb compared to a normal Bomb?
            They both are designed to kill so whats the difference?

            One cause more pain?
            One doesnt kill as many people but perhaps injures them?
            Is their chemicals in a barrel bomb? (i know there isnt)

            Let me tell u why i know u dont know jack shit!
            Because u used the word “Barrel bomb” which is exactly what western MSM have been pumping down dumb peoples throats who dont stop to think of the meaning of these words!

            A bomb is a bomb END OF STORY!
            A “Barrel bomb” sounds more evil and thats why they use these words!

            Dropping only BOMBS on people isnt bad enough to paint a picture for dumb westerners like urself!
            So they invented Barrel bomb! lol its hilarious!

            The USA has bombs too!
            Smart bombs, dumb bombs, cluster bombs (apparently they are really bad because they have thermite), nuclear bombs, chemical bombs (havent irradicted them yet but Russia has) etc etc!

            But ohhhhhh, Barrel bombs! So evil! If only Assad could kill 20 people with normal bombs we wouldnt feel so bad if he killed 20 people with a barrel bomb!

            Do u see how stupid u are?

            Also Chemical weapons!
            How in the hell does Assad benefit from dropping CW on Citizens?
            Why would he use them only against citizens and not against ISIS or Al-Nusra?
            Why would he use them when the enemy was retreating rather than when the enemy was attacking?

            Do u get me?
            Do u get all ur information from “friends”?
            Maybe u believe the UN’s take on the bombing even though they didnt inspect the area bombed, the airbase, the aircraft that dropped it, nothing!

            This is why people like u are so stupid! Because u believe the shit they tell u!

            So we are sitting on opposite sides of the fence here!
            U believe YOUR bullshit and i believe mine! But mine isnt bullshit!
            Mine is based on logic and facts!

            “who benefits”
            “Why use CW on citizens and not isis”
            “Why must assad go”?
            “Why is the US in the middle east in 1990 when the Soviet union collapsed in 1989”
            “Why is a barrel bomb worse than a bomb”?
            “Why does Special Forces guys tell their friends at home whats going on”?
            “Yo cannot believe the US is doing bad in the middle east, only good”
            “Why does Israel only bomb the Syrians and never HTS or Al-Nusra”
            “Why is the US allowed to fund 2 sides of a war (US backed rebels vs US backed SDF” A WAR CRIME!
            The USA has no legal mandate to be in Syria!
            DO U GET ME SWEET HEART??

            Im sorry to tell u but uve been HAD! Uve been misinformed, u are brainwashed!

          • Dennis R

            Just because a handful of Brits, Dutch, and Israelis are in Daesh means dick to the rest of the world, you morons…..lol….I mean, do you really think people, for the most part (i.e the majority of those who KNOW the facts) think the US is working alongside extremist militants and ISIL????????? We laugh at people like in you out here in the real world. Why?? Because, unlike the majority of you TOTALLY INTELLECTUAL GIANTS (LOL), those of us with friends serving in Special Operations units within US CENTCOM can actually speak factually about what’s happening on the ground in the local townships and districts where the SDF operate. All we do is shoot at those who shoot at us, and use drones to drop tiny 12 pound warheads (Hellfire missiles) on ISIS targets we find….Not these massive barrel bombs, or cluster munitions filled with gas, etc….
            Where’s your proof? I mean, show me ONE video, I don’t care if it’s doctored etc….SHOW ME ONE that proves any of the horsesh-t you’re saying about us being remotely connected to Daesh. Then you are allowed to talk…till then shut your faggy blow hole

            This evidence has links to the USA courts, CNN CAR FAX USA and the Texas plumbing company. Is this good enough for you? I don’t blame the average USA soldier like you. You obviously don’t know you are working for evil. However once you do know if you keep doing it well then it is up to god to judge not me. Are you aware once you are no longer useful to evil you will likely be killed poisoned etc. by your own government? More USSA solders die from being poisoned etc. by their own government then die in combat. Isn’t there something very wrong with that?

            Almost exactly a year ago, the media world was abuzz when as we reported then, a picture posted by Ansar al-Din Front, an Islamic extremist brigade, and which promptly went viral showed a Ford F250 truck with a “Mark-1 Plumbing” decal on the door and a militant standing in the bed firing the anti-aircraft gun.
            And while most moved on quickly from this story, for one person the picture had a dramatic and scarring effect: the owner of said Mark-1 Plumbing company, a Texan by the name of Mark Oberholtzer, who as many know by now, is suing a Texas Ford dealership (Charlie Thomas Gord) for more than $1 million in financial losses and damages to his company’s reputation, as a result of this pickup truck which he once owned, ending up with Islamic militants fighting in Syria’s civil war.

            Part 2 As CNN summarizes, http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/14/us/terror-truck-lawsuit/index.html
            “all Mark Oberholtzer wanted to do was upgrade his ride. What he got instead was a world of trouble from half a world away.”
            “By the end of the day, Mark-1’s office, Mark-1’s business phone, and Mark’s personal cell had received over 1,000 phone calls from around the nation,” Oberholtzer’s lawyer wrote in the lawsuit, filed December 9 in Harris County, Texas. “These phone calls were in large part harassing and contained countless threats of violence, property harm, injury and even death.”
            Oberholtzer said this wouldn’t have happened if the dealership had just removed the decals before the truck was resold, as he had demanded, thus serving as the basis for his lawsuit (attached below).
            But while we commiserate with Mr. Oberholzer, and wish him prompt restitution of damages as a result of unnecessary harassment, a far more important question is just how did Mark’s 2005 Ford F250 Super Duty end up in under the control of the Islamic State.
            The answer would be critical, as it will provide a factual, tracable answer how it is that ISIS is if not funded (we already revealed a critical part of that story), then supplied with equipment and perhaps weapons.
            The answer is stunning.
            This is what the plaintiff states in his lawsuit:
            According to a CARFAX Vehicle History Report (see Exhibit B), the vehicle was listed as a dealer vehicle sold at a Texas auto auction on November 11, 2013. On December 18, 2013 the vehicle was exported from Houston, Texas and imported to Mersin, Turkey.
            And here is the proof straight from CARFAX, provided in Exhibit B of Oberholzer’s lawsuit:

          • John Brown

            Part 3 Here is what happened:
            • On October 23, 2013, Mark Oberholtzer entered into a transaction with Charlie Thomas Ford, in which he traded-in his old 2005 Ford F-250 pickup truck for a newer 2012 Ford F-250 pickup truck.
            • Promptly thereafter, the vehicle was listed as a dealer vehicle sold at a Texas auto auction on November 11, 2013
            • Less than a month later, on December 18, 2013 the vehicle was exported from Houston, Texas and imported to Mersin, Turkey.
            • Less than a year later it was in the documented possession of the Islamic State.
            So once again the “missing link” supplying ISIS emerges as none other than Turkey.
            For those to whom the Turkey-ISIS connection comes as a surprise, we urge you to reread:
            • Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey’s President
            • ISIS Oil Trade Full Frontal: “Raqqa’s Rockefellers”, Bilal Erdogan, KRG Crude, And The Israel Connection
            • Russia Presents Detailed Evidence Of ISIS-Turkey Oil Trade
            And while NATO-member Turkey supplying ISIS with funding, supplies, weapons or equipment is hardly groundbreaking news, the Ford “clue” poses new and important questions, such as:
            • who is the Turkish party that ordered and paid for the Ford truck’s transfer to Turkey, and subsequently received compensation from the Islamic State in the subsequent resale?
            • which is the US party which transacts with Turkish counterparts, who ultimately ship US products to Islamic State fighters?
            • is the US party aware that its Turkish counterparty has dealings with ISIS

          • John Brown

            Part 4
            what is the role of the US government in all of this, because it would be surprising that an administration that has sworn it would crack down on all outside assistance to the Islamic State would be unaware that “made in the USA” trucks ended up in the Islamic State by way of its faitful NATO ally, Turkey.
            • how many other such vehicles sold in the US and exported to Turkey, have made their way to the Islamic State
            We are confident that it will be relatively easy for any aspiring reporter to track down the US-based exporter of the Ford truck (and thus recipient of Turkish funds), just as it will be facile to uncover who was the Turkish buyer who signed the receipt invoice in Mersin, Turkey. What may be more difficult to uncover is whether the governments of the US and Turkey, respectively, were or are appraised about transactions such as this one, and if not, then why not?
            We hope to be able to answer as many of the above as possible in the very near future.

          This is why I’ve blocked him and a lot of other trolls who appeared just before the Las Vegas FF. It was an indicator that something was in the wind. Now the ‘purge’ in KSA, the Hariri BS, Israels declaration that they will stand alone if need be, etc. They hatched a plan and this is the preamble. Events will now flow in the MSM world-wide as justification for the coming attack on Lebanon/Hezbollah and Iran/Syria. I refuse to give these scum an audience.

            Everyone has this low opinion of the US (we don’t ALL love Trump ya know, the opposite is more true) and yet we keep sending free money, food, and Special Forces (the most highly trained in the world) to assist a–holes like YOU. I can’t wait until we say “you know what? YOU AREN’T WORTH THE OIL WE’D GET IN RETURN!! We hope you hurry up and just finish each other off….Even those of us who us who don’t agree at all with Israel’s policies out there, still feel the IDF does more to help it’s Arab neighbors than Syria has in the last few years. Same witih Russia….easily the most self-absorbed nation on Earth. When was the last time you saw Russia’s Navy send HALF ITS SHIPS (like we do all the time) to random Pacific islands after hurricanes to help with food and rescue efforts…..OH WAIT, they haven’t been part of any of those operations for decades….lol

          Kurdish rats? As opposed to who? Who do you support? Daesh? the SAA? Iran’s Hez units who can hardly drive? Or the Russian morons who drop giant barrel bombs on the very roads you’re talking about?
          Cuz those I know serving in Syria alongside UK/Dutch/Canadian/and many other countries’ SOF would say you are a MORON for believing ANYTHING like that Wikileak-level bullsh-t about Lebanon and which side the US will be on, especially. WE TRAINED THEIR NAVAL SPECIAL WARFARE UNITS (their version of the SEALs)!!!! We meet them annually and train together….Same with the IDF, same with the Dutch’s KCT and all the others. We try to form coalitions of countries’ SOF units/orgs that wish to ASSIST those who need it, not just label whole districts as hostile “Daesh-infested” areas and bomb the shit out of them….lol. But I guess I shouldn’t expect anything different.

      • Garga

        Perhaps you:
        – Never seen Iraq/Syria border desert with it’s moving sands.
        – Have no idea what kind of distance you’re talking about.
        – Don’t know how long does it take to build such road.
        – Think every country prints it’s own money out of thin air, when at war and therefore think it’s easily affordable for them to divert funds into building something that already exists.
        – Downplay the importance of this road in terrorists logistics.
        – Have no idea how hard it is to build something when the area is not secured in the middle of an unfinished war.

        I would ask you to explain why the US is so interested to cut all 3 existing highways between Iraq and Syria, but you’ll probably just deny the whole thing, like the US built it’s terror camp right in Al-Tanaf because it has great weather or something, not because of highway.

        • rudy

          Clear thinking , congrat !

        • Dennis R

          The United States’ covert (not as it was/used to be a few years ago, but for the most part, still is) actions ARE NOT aimed at helping any paramilitary orgs (outside of the SDF’s core Kurd/Pesh elements) over another and is far from supportive of any rumors of it’s Special Operations Forces attempting to isolate ANYONE from going ANYWHERE, PERIOD–> unless they are part of militant extremist groups, the same ones who have ex-Russian or former Quds Force advisory personnel assisting their efforts. WE as a nation, especially when it comes to the most recent deployment cycles of Special Forces to Syria, are all about helping refugees FLEE fighting, not cut off their MSRs (main supply routes) or roads that are escape routes for innocent people. NOW, yes we cut off those who commit the very acts of violence (we see it daily from drones overhead) and acts of terror that brought us there in the first place (several people I grew up and knew my entire life ARE CURRENTLY SERVING IN units working that AO/area of operations AND TO THIS DAY, are currently serving in elite SOF units as we speak, and have been there since the Euphrates was reached)…. and when the SAA used Sarin (or any chem weapons), and as our US SOF-supported SDF elements arrive at those points and see the destruction on a massive scale (dead infants, splayed out in the dust with their mothers dead nearby), it’s hard to sit here and lie and say to you or ANYONE that a US operator or team is NOT going to f–king destroy the first SAA rocket battery or artillery position they find because chem weapons are not just illegal AND messed up, but are being used against maybe 10% ISIL, and the rest is just whoever is unlucky enough to be in the middle. As we speak, one of my high school peers who now is an officer in a joint TF with the DIA and the US Army Special Forces (he’s in an ODA, or you may know them as Green Berets) and is my age–35–and says the SAA think it’s actually cheer-worthy when they kill thousands of “Daesh-overrun towns” (when really, they are reg towns with maybe a few hundred Daesh hidden in diff pockets). Then, in reality, the SDF armor arrive and see nothing but dead families. To me, I don’t care what Putin or the IRGC/Quds Force/Hez say, it’s a lie if they try to claim ignorance about the gassing of whole towns.

          Whatever…My friends should all be back within the year and they can’t wait…they are tired of trying to help Syrians who don’t even have the dignity to scout out targets before they lay waste to entire populations….populations of SYRIAN CITIZENS, their own people!! Jeeeeezus, that’s disgusting. You don’t see this ridiculous sh-t, even in Iraq’s mess with ISIL.
          Sorry, but in comparison, Russia&Iran have NOTHING on what the SDF and Kurds have accomplished with US SOF’s support. The only reason they haven’t finished the job in the rest of the rural, Western parts of the country is because Turkey, Russia, etc wanted to take care of it and we respected their wishes and let it be. But look what happened!
          And don’t tell me about US “terror camps”….We think it’s hilarious that you idiots who think the US has any connections with ISIS are still trying to prove it….lol….I mean, how stupid are you? Yes, we love the sight of our journalists being beheaded! Of course all infidels “should suffer the same fate” etc blah blah blah….lol….My god, how stupid people over there are. The SAA, along with Iran’s militias, are just as bad as the groups they fight. They can’t aim for dick, and are even worse when they’re allowed to use chem weapons like gas, or use barrel bombs on civilian townships.

          • John Whitehot

            yeah.
            and I personally know one german special forces operator who tells me that back in A-Stan the US Specops used to shoot innocent civilians like farmers and shepherds, in order to avoid the risk of them alerting talibans of their presence.

            This german soldier witnessed the above acts with his own eyes and cannot but underline the overall disgust among his unit on the murderous behavior of US and UK specops.

      It would be better seige position to encircle Bukumal. ..then squeeze the ISUS towards PMU Iraq and what’s left hanging on out west of Bukumal.
      Create qauldrons and wipe them out.
      Iran has Sea Cobra helicopters. ..some are their own copy.
      Have not seen these in action in western Iraq or Syria.
      This Syrian war reeks of compromise….the useless Syrian Air defence being Capt
      Obvious that Russia is hamstring Syria and Iranian Militias in some kind of Masonic/Globalism
      Back room deal.

      Syria has years to build a standing army with Russian training since 2015.
      This army rides scooters around chasing girls in Syrian cities while old men stand in for new military graduate.
      I like Assad……yet he’s a puff cake leader who would never rule in the ancient world
      Of Hittite, Assyrians etc.
      ISUS are treachery and head chopping ruthless ….your fighting Mongols wired on Captigon.

      Russia may be methodical. ….yet it’s weak performance….this is dangerous show to the Lunatics in the Pentagon.
      Ukronazi continue to shell and mortar the Donbass.
      Much of Syria’s trouble would have been rolled up in 2016 had Russia put in 60 Attack Helicopters with Airborne.
      Trained SAA and Iranian to replace them…while keeping the Helicopter assets in.

      It’s like Putin wants Syria to be humiliated in illegal occupations while US and Israel party with
      UN.
      US,Israel and Saudi should face war crimes for their sponsor of ISUS.
      Instead….Putin signs military weapons deals with Saudi,….sells LNG gas to the Americans who sanction them. ..and sell that Russian gas to Europe afterwards.
      Israel gets away with more Golan theft…plus attack Syria after phone call to Putin.
      This war reeks of compromise.

            if anything, i said that the united states are part of israel and they gladly send their armed forces to fight and die in their wars.

            you should check the article on the Times by one of the zionist journalist stating that “Israel must prepare the US to start fighting against the Syrian Army”.

HE USED SARIN GAS! Oh wait…let me guess….it was a BIG CONSPIRACY right??? lol…..just like how the US secretly helps Daesh (the best one we laugh the hardest at here in the U.S, seriously, is the one where you guys try to connect US forces and politics with Daesh when in reality, the Sunni elements of AQI were the ONLY roots of that organization)….Everything you’ve heard since that argues that is Russian propaganda and the world knows it!!!
        The funniest part though, is that I don’t blame Putin and Russia for being liars and spreading false news about the “Americans being in bed with ISIL/Daesh”, I blame the STUPID, IGNORANT A–HOLES LIKE YOU WHO KEEP IT GOING!!! LOL, do you ever look in the mirror and just instictively slap yourself and go “jeeezus, I’m really, REALLY stupid and uneducated….I need to go back to school or maybe volunteer over there so I can see the REAL world instead of what I read on the internet”

    SAA so desparate that everything they do incorrectly is the fault of the SDF or the US.

    Their radio’s do not work? US did it. More likely is the Russia supplied faulty radio’s or there wasn’t proper maintenance.

    Next there will be a sandstorm, they will claim the US did this by installing huge vertilators.

      It’s the fault of the usa that there is civil unrest in Syria, it’s usa’s fault that isis was able to get as far as it did cause they have created the civil war, it is the usa’s and their stoodges fault that people are dying in a war there, it’s the usa’s fault that they Deir ezor nearly fell when they bombed the syrian troops by “mistake” there are so many things …. they are rightfully blamed.

      I know someone else who sounds like a broken record. I see you’re back with a vengeance, clearly the Syrian Destruction Force is using those US taxpayer funds on propaganda now that ISIS has been absorbed into their ranks and there is no further need for theatrical battles.

    • Deo Cass

      The US aircraft preventing Syrian and Russian aircraft from attacking ISIS is a proven fact. The US support, funding, arming and training of ISIS and its direct handling of ISIS is a proven fact. So all comments here are legitimate. The illegal US/SDF/ISIS and co colonial imperialist invasion and occupation terror forces have already stated they want al-Bukamal and that quote: “We will not permit the regime forces and their allies to take control of the Al-Bukanal border crossing.” If you read the other news up here you will see another report of the illegal US forces refusing to co-ordinate with Russia who is legally in Syria to destroy ISIS convoys operating on the Eastern banks of the Euphrates river. The SDF is also known to be in fact ISIS rebranded, military commanders and all.

        the US may well try to prevent the liberation of Al Bukanal. Yet that does not mean they’ll manage it. Time ago they were also saying that they would bomb Syrian forces crossing the river but they didn’t.

      He was actually one of those Turkmen who somehow had the job at SDF as well; strange things going on. A spy ?, but it was known by everybody, so unless all is one and one is all on the baddy side, I am lost; does it also mean Turkey is playing the game as well ?.

        we’ll see what this means in a while. Right now the only side displaying unity is the Syrian one. The others scatter like cockroaches when you turn the light on at the first occasion.

        • You can call me Al

          My worry is if Turkey is an ally or whore for the SAA.

        Whatever his ethnic origin I reckon he is a Mossad man. At least in their pay.

    May I ask what the Tiger Forces are doing? Are they still relaxing 40km away?

  • Deo Cass

    What I can see lacking in the ISIS vodeos is lack of air support for the Syrian government forces, at least from helicopter gunships. The battle area needs to be buzzing with helicopter gunships leading the advance and eliminating any US ISIS terrorist they see blocking the way. That’s how its done elsewhere. Why not here?

      It appears that RF is trying to balance the overall situation in the ME, and calm down the Arabians a bit, by having saa show weakness and losses on the battle field.

  • Rex drabble

    The US has been an obstacle from the beginning.Has it worked? NO
    Dont worry about it,Russia has it all figured out,they are way ahead of the of the US which is totally desperate right now.

    The issue which warrants most attention here is that Ru was aware of the massive convoys approaching, and it did nothing about it. Similar things have occurred time and time over; but no preparation.

    As far as for Damascus, a massive attack was carried out by militants, capturing strategic areas around Harasta, killing several prominent SAA. This comes less than 24 hours after a massive aid convoy was allowed into E. Ghouta.
    The convoy appears to be more RF interference; pressuring Damascus to throw the militants a life line.

    • PZIVJ

      And what massive convoy do you refer to ?
      Do you believe ISIS still has a massive number of tactical vehicles still operating?
      This would be a massive surprise to me! :DDD

    I do not see any air protection and support from aerospace Russia force in this video. Where are the helicopters, planes, or kalibr missiles ?
