Syrian Army Kicks Off Large-Scale Security Operation Against ISIS In Homs Desert

Fierce clashes between the Syrian Army and ISIS terrorists erupted near the villages of al-Sukhnah and Wadi al-Waer in the province of Homs on April 9 evening.

According to pro-government sources, the army and local militias backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces kicked off a wide-scale security operation to crack down on the terrorists hiding in the desert area. Its goal is to put an end to the recently observed increase of actions of the terrorist group against pro-government forces on the western bank of the Euphrates.

Supporters of the so-called ‘moderate Syrian opposition’ immediately claimed that government forces suffered heavy casualties in this operation. They insist that over 20 soldiers were killed. Pro-government sources claim that up to 30 ISIS members were neutralized.

In the coming days, Syrian troops will likely continue developing their anti-ISIS operation along the Sukhna-Deir Ezzor road and in the southern countryside of Mayadeen. ISIS cells infiltrating the government-controlled area from the eastern bank of the Euphrates in eastern Syria and the border area in western Iraq have become a serious security threat recently.

Meanwhile, ISIS announced that it had conducted 29 attacks on government forces across Iraq during the past week. The terrorist group claims that 66 government fighters were killed or injured. These claims remain unconfirmed. After the collapse of ISIS’ self-proclaimed Caliphate in the Middle East, ISIS-affiliated media outlets become used to spreading fake news and dramatically overestimating supposed ‘successes’ of the terrorist group.

The Turkish Army established a new observation post near the village of Jannet Elqora in Syria’s southwestern Idlib. This village is located in a close proximity to the M4 highway, which links the port city of Lattakia with the country’s industrial hub, Aleppo city. Last week, the Turkish military established three similar posts in the towns of Baksariya, al-Z’ainiyah and Furaykah in southwest Idlib.

According to open data, the Turkish military currently has up to 60 ‘observation posts’ across the region of Greater Idlib. Ankara claims that all these positions were established and heavy military equipment were deployed to them in order to put an end to the terrorist threat in the region and observe the ceasefire. However, so far, the only real goal achieve by Turkey has been the increase of security for al-Qaeda terrorists operating in the region.

The US State Department welcomed a new OPCW report accusing the Syrian military of using chemical weapons. According to the new accusations, Syria conducted 3 chemical attacks in the province of Hama in March 2017. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also accused Iran and Russia of conducting a ‘disinformation campaign’ in order to ‘hide’ the usage of chemical weapons by Syrian forces.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry said the OPCW report “is misleading and contains falsified and fabricated conclusions”, while Russia’s permanent mission to the watchdog described the document as “not trustworthy.”

Since the very start of the conflict, the chemical weapon issue has been deeply polarized and the OPCW’s conclusions on the topic have repeatedly faced a strong criticism from independent experts. Furthermore, recent leaks from the OPCW investigation on the Douma incident demonstrated that the organization is intentionally hiding facts, doctoring investigation results and drawing preplanned conclusions in order to push forward the mainstream agenda designed to demonize the Assad government.

Just like the with green rats, it’s time to take out the grey rats! Go SAA ??

Zaphod Braden

ISIS never runs out of ammunition or explosives. ………….. WHY?!
ISIS never, ever, attacks ISISrael ………………………………… WHY?!
ISIS is completely surrounded by supposed enemies.
Everyone of the countries surrounding ISIS is SUPPOSEDLY an ally of the USA.
Time for the USA to take a good hard look at it’s “allies”.
Our “intelligence” agencies should have identified and destroyed those who are supplying ISIS but have not …… WHY?!
“our” Generals have not destroyed those who are supplying ISIS ………… WHY?!
You know DAMN WELL WHO supplies their weapons, that kill American Troops.
The FIRST thing a general that WANTS TO WIN a war does ….. is cut off enemy supplies. Time to clean out the Traitors.
The chaos in Syria was winding down. The TRAITORS in the Pentagon had spent 24 months at $10MILLION a DAY bombing sand. ISIS continued to hold miles long parades of OUR equipment complete with flags on clear, dry, sunny days, and the TRAITORS in the Pentagon “could not seem to HIT them with any of those thousands of bombs”. ..
Then the Russians came in and blew the ISIS asses off. Did you notice the parades ENDED. We had no problem with thousands of stealth tankers daily moving oil from isis-controlled areas to turkey(Erdogan’s SON), and on to the entity. Too bad Putin blew ’em up, blew ’em up real good! “Russia didn’t want Syria turned into a #FailedState like Libya & entered the war on Sept 30th 2015. They started bombing 100’s of ISIS oil tanker trucks and oil fields with just 35 planes. ISIS revenues were cut by 50% & things turned around.
ISIS has ZERO antiaircraft abilities. the TRAITORS in the Pentagon could have dropped bombs from HOT AIR BALLOONS or BIPLANES ……. We KNOW who the Pentagon is working for and it is NOT America.
That would be a “tragedy” for Israel and Turkey who are plotting to seize Syrian land for “greater” Israel and the “caliphate” of Turkey all the while genocidally flooding White, CHRISTIAN Europe with muslum invaders …………. they had to get that war going again …..

Wahhabi pricks and theirs masters doing everything possible to stop Syrian liberation and offensive. Well, this time it will not work…

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Iran, Russia and Syria all have to coordinate an operation against Isis together, Russia needs to start flying over Iranian controlled Deir ez Zor instead of around it, and to actively assist the Iranians when they need air support or reconnaissance.
Why can’t Russian planes fly over Iranian controlled southern Deir ez Zor, who stops them, the US and NATO don’t have any no fly zones imposed over Deir ez Zor, so why don’t Russian planes bomb Isis targets in Deir ez Zor, that’s where all the Isis fighters come from, that’s where the head of the snake is now, Deir ez Zor.

Cromwell

I don’t know if the SAA have those big rocket systems like TOS-I and Smerch,if not they should have,they would totally annihilate terrorists on the ground,get this nonsense finished once and for all.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

The problem isn’t with adequate weaponry or equipment, the fact the Russians and Iranians refuse to cooperate is the real reason Isis is managing to hold on and grow stronger in Deir ez Zor. that and the fact the Russians and Iranians treat each other more like enemies than they do allies doesn’t help either.

Condolences to the fallen wahabimossad operators…

CIA trolls and hasbarats will cry and rage :)

Phoron

The relative quiet and stability in Idlib and elsewhere is a good opportunity to form a 50 mile long skirmish line and sweep that desert for whatever hole IS been operating out of and burn ’em out

Mr T

So Assad army is fighting Wahhabi ISIS and gets paid by Wahhabi UAE(+Saudi Arabia) to fight against Turkish army?

so ISIS changed its tactics from occupying area into hit and run war fare.
