The military situation in Syria continued deteriorating in the recent days.

On August 21, the Syrian Army and its allies increased their anti-ISIS raids in the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor-Al-Mayadin triangle. According to pro-government sources, these efforts are being actively supported by recently deployed reinforcements from the Iranian-backed Liwa Fatemiyoun armed group.

On August 20, ISIS claimed responsibility for the recent attack on Russian troops in the province of Deir Ezzor.  The attack, which took place on August 18, killed Maj. Gen. Vyacheslav Gladkih and injured two other Russian service members. In a statement released by its news agency, Amaq, ISIS claimed that a number of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which had been planted by its terrorists east of the town of al-Sukhnah in eastern Homs, struck a Russian patrol that was combing the region.

Earlier, the Russian military said that the incident took place near the al-Taim oil field, which is indeed located to the east of al-Sukhnah, in the western Deir Ezzor countryside. These details play into the hand of the ISIS propaganda. According to Syrian government sources, a few hundreds of ISIS members take shelter in the Homs-Deir Ezzor countryside. These terrorists pose a notable security threat to pro-government forces, but they claim that the full elimination of the ISIS cells in the desert is not possible as long as the US occupies the al-Tanf area.

Kata’ib Hezbollah, the Iraqi pro-Iranian group, is reinforcing its military positions in the southern countryside of Syria’s Deir Ezzor, according to pro-government sources. Kata’ib Hezbollah fighters are currently building fortifications around their positions in the outskirt of the city of al-Mayadin.

The situation is also tense on the contact line between the army and militants in southern Idlib. According to pro-militant sources, at least 2 opposition fighters were killed in Syrian Army strikes in al-Bara and other areas in the al-Zawiya mount.

The string of assassinations of former rebel commanders continues in southern Syria. An attack with an improvised explosive device killed Issa Al-Janati, a former rebel commander in al-Quneitra. The IED attack took place near the commander’s house in the town of al-Zubaidah in the al-Quneitra countryside on August 17. Al-Janati died of his wounds, while his wife was slightly injured. Al-Janati, who is known by his nom de guerre “Abu Wassim,” used to be a senior commander in the Free Syrian Army. In 2018, he joined the reconciliation process. Nevertheless, he refused to enlist in the Syrian Arab Army or any pro-government faction.

This was the first assassination of a former rebel commander in al-Quneitra. Such assassinations take place in Daraa province on a regular basis. Local sources link them with the increased activity of Israeli special services that are not happy to see how their former proxies are changing their public position.

Hopefully this time it works instead of just some hit and fall back.
Use a large force this time. :)

HiaNd

if it doesn’t work than what were those “recon” doing in the desert if not pointing their GLONAS targets over their hideouts during Russian bombings?
were they working with real inlet and have mapped in advance all the targets with coordinates… or they were just pretending and wasting high precision bombs and missiles on some rocks and sand dunes?
I honestly hope that they are not that much delusional…

Syrian Forces should hunt down and KILL all ISRAEL Backed ISIS SCUMS

Jens Holm

But they do hunt ISIS, dont they?

Icarus Tanović

And that is exactly what is gonna happen.

ro.niccolosi

I’m not convinced israel is behind the attacks. What do they have to gain by killing corruptable individuals and jeopardizing blowing their cover?

johnny rotten

The auxiliary infantry of the occupants, improperly called Isis, continues to emerge from the illegally occupied areas, always well equipped of course, it is to be thought that they are using it sparingly to prolong their presence as long as possible, and to exhaust in a continuous guerrilla the legitimate Syrian Government, which in the meantime is the victim of another war, the economic one.

Jens Holm

Blind propagandalf from You again. ISIS has lack of advanced things because we hardl see they use any kind of missiles.

Hard to see those ISIS are connected to, what You prefare to see under Your bed blanket. Maybee You think they smell, because You not even wash hands every friday.

“Illegal” is highly infected as well. If people uprise against whats illegal they mainly are the legal ones.

ruca

Read his comment again and try to comprehend.

Jens Holm

I do understand and know facts well. MIne are accurate.

ISIS is not helped by USA, UK and France. Assads are not a legitime Governes for most of Syrians and never was.

Assads nevrer has held legitime elections as well. Well maybee when old Assad took over and the feudals and king was replaced by new feudals named as Bad Artists.

HiaNd

Calling him “dumb” means that his intelligence is underdeveloped.
I consider even that a compliment (to Jens) and exaggeration.

Jens Holm

No relations to its about ISIS is better armed or not.

Jens Holm

Again no relations to my comment. You cant even handle inaccurate facts.

ro.niccolosi

I decided when I see posted by jens holm, to just not read it anymore. This is not dumb, but psychiatry patient

Jens Holm

You have no realtions to why ISIS do this and that. Its just a usual deflcting of normal thinkingand reflecting.

Green cars cant drive…

My father can fly. A syone cant fly. Therefore ny father uis a stone.

No wonder You dont solve much there aårt from overpopulation.

Jens Holm

mijav

ruca

Try again, this time in English.

ro.niccolosi

I tried 4 times. Psychosis talk, incomprehensible

ro.niccolosi

I would say you are the propagandist, but I think you just have some sort of psychosis to be honest

Jens Holm

Give me some links for who supports ISIS.

But OH NO – thats not needed.

We are with grattitude think as Our Goverment tell us and we obey as muslims do 5 times a say and friday. Friday we even waste water on washing.

You dont know Your enemy, which is vital for all politics and warfare. And if Your own things dot work, You dont correct them, but create excuses, which seemes to be as opium for the people.

You should learn to dó some factchecking and include, what psykoses are. Internet is a very good and free source.

ro.niccolosi

I know who’s the enemy allright, and it’s not you for sure. Even not those corrupt takfiri paid ISIS mercenaries

Jens Holm

Thanks

ro.niccolosi

And I don’t want to disrepectful to you at all (allthough I know I am sometimes) I realise you don’t have any bad intensions, and I believe you are really convinced about the things you try to say and even passionate like me, but I wish I could open your eyes just a little. The ‘free’ internet is a very bad source of information, because free information is mostly of bad quality or the product of malicious propagandist if it seems legit (southfront is a rare exception to me) I paid +€3000 on kindle ebooks (some scans of the internet archive ‘archive.org’, which I reviewed by independed sources before I bought them or read them, and if something sounds unbelievable to me I always check the reference in the book. (checking all references would be impossible, since you only have limited time on this corrupt earth, and I wish to acquire as much information as possible. I’m almost a post-graduate, so I know how to fact-check (call it reference checking) But it’s good you do some fact-checking as well. It’s a great advice to give to anybody. Can’t stress this enough, don’t take any for my words for granted, fact-check everything.

ro.niccolosi

About what would you like references? These psyop operatives know how to erase their tracks and how to deceive the public in the mass media. Sometimes certain speculations can be made by logical deduction and even induction. In my opninion it can only serve as prove if there is an accumulation of logically deductive information (probability ratio’s) I might come across like I have prejucides against certain groups or peoples, but this is not the case in my perception. Before I speculate on blaming someone, there is a history of these logically deductive accumulation which can produce a certain amount of prove. It is also aways good to ask yourself ‘qui bono’ or in english, who is to benefit from this event or occurence. I really hope you can understand and see my perception of things. I still do my best to see your point of view as well.

Jens Holm

Thats how Your little tiny devellpoment zone is.

If selfcreated science fiction by You is not there, not even Ghostbusters can find them.

Next time try to use both hands at the carrot below Your bed blanket. And remember lighting Your 7 armed candelabre there too.

ro.niccolosi

7 armed candelabre? Since when did you became critical of judaism?

RichardD

The Golan front would be a good place to deploy Egyptian specops to gain experience mitigating Mossad and the IDF. And establishing anti Yinon plan regional stability.

ro.niccolosi

I still don’t understand how Rabin gave back the Sinai to Egypt, because it’s also herzl territory

RichardD

“His daughter Paulina suffered from mental illness and drug addiction. She died in 1930 at the age of 40 of a heroin overdose.[63]

His only son Hans was given a secular upbringing and Herzl notably refused to allow him to be circumcised.[64][65][66] After Herzl’s early death, Hans successively converted[67] and became a Baptist, then a Catholic, and flirted with other Protestant denominations. He sought a personal salvation for his own religious needs and a universal solution, as had his father, to Jewish suffering caused by antisemitism. Hanz Herzl voluntarily had himself circumcised 29 May 1905;[68] Hans shot himself to death on the day of his sister Paulina’s funeral; he was 39 years old.”

– Theodor Herzl –

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodor_Herzl#Family

ro.niccolosi

This doesn’t justify zionism at all. Anyway, wikipedia is never a good point for references, but it could be true. I’m not a specialist on herzl’s personal biography at all so

RichardD

You can always check the footnotes and look at the source material that the article is based on.

ro.niccolosi

Yes of course, but herzl’s personal life doesn’t matter to me. I’m even sorry for his loses, and I even feel sorry for him he had to go through such hardships and suffering, but nothing justifies a supermacist ideology in my perception

ro.niccolosi

and I dont deny jewish suffering, but it’s not because of ‘anti-semitism’. Most people who dislike the jewish ideology aren’t bigots are rascist at all, but dislike the fact that this ideology is quasi exactly the same as fictional nazism (I know this might be very hard to understand and grasp, it took me myself a lot of suffering and accepting before I could)

RichardD

This guy is the father of modern Zionism, and his children were a failure just like Zionism.

Mustafa Mehmet

At last assad gangs trying to do something.. just for show

Assad must stay

very nice work SAA keep up the hunting and destroying of terrorists

HiaNd

Exterminating ISIS and starting to organize full resistance with diversions against Americunts wherever they are (to make them leave the country).
That is much more important than Idlib, a patch of land comparing to surface what Kurds and Americans are controlling. Not to mention that getting back oil fields as soon as possible is primordial for survival of Syrian economy

ro.niccolosi

Let it be a lesson for all those who work with humankind’s most dangerous enemy. This ex FSA commander got was he deserved

Jens Holm

Very good video

LibertyIsGreat

Shia terrorists hunting Sunni terrorist and the other way around. They are both terrorist so it’s a wash who dies.
