The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies have been operating nonstop to contain the threat posed by ISIS cells in the central region.

On July 3, pro-government sources shared photos of several caves which were uncovered by the army’s 25th Special Forces Division during a recent combing operation in the Amour Mountains in the eastern Homs countryside. ISIS terrorists used the caves as hideouts.

The 25th Special Force Division, commonly known as the “Tiger Forces,” joined the fight against ISIS in central Syria earlier this year.

The SAA’s operations in central Syria are backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS). Russian warplanes target ISIS hideouts in the region on a daily basis. On July 3, several airstrikes were reported.

Recently, Iraqi sources affiliated with ISIS claimed that the chief of ISIS oil smuggling operations, known as Sami al-Ajouz, was killed in central Syria as a result of Russian airstrikes. Last year, the al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham claimed that al-Ajouz was killed by its security forces in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

The ongoing operations in central Syria are draining ISIS. Nevertheless, the terrorist group’s presence in the region will not likely end anytime soon.

Even the dumbest Wahhabi ape would have realized that these cave dwelling headchopper cannibal monkeys have snow balls chance in hell of ever coming close to Damascus or any major Syrian city. These morons are getting killed by the dozens every day by accurate Russian airstrikes and Iranian artillery so I wonder why these dumbasses don’t save themselves and go back to Saudi Arabia or US. On the positive side, Syrian demographics have changed considerably as these Salafist dead male monkeys will not be breeding more headchopper rats.

Iraqi sources affiliated with ISIS are the cia, MI5, and the rest of the Five Eyes gang. Sami al-Ajouz is probably back at cia or MI5 headquarters being assigned his new identity and destination.

From the heady days of the ‘caliphate’, the terrorists in Syria have been reduced to hiding in rat-holes and rat-runs. They have found their true station in life.
