US-backed Militants Counter-Attack Failed. Syrian Military Deploys Reinforcements In Southeastern Syria

A screenshot from the video below

On Friday, US-backed Jaish Maghawir al-Thawra launched an attack against the Syrian Army in the Zuluf Reserve area in the southeastern Syrian destert in order to regain this strategic point from the Syrian military. However, the attack filed and Jaish Maghawir al-Thawra was not able to capture any point.

Jaish Maghawir al-Thawra targeted the SAA allegedly using a US-made Switchblade suicide drone. It is known that this type of suicide drones are operating only by the US Special Forces.

US-backed Militants Counter-Attack Failed. Syrian Military Deploys Reinforcements In Southeastern Syria

On Saturday, the SAA deployed the 800th Battalion of the Republican Guards in the eastern Zuluf reserve area on the Syrian-Jordanian border.  The battalion 800 is among the best equipped Syrian forces, and all of its tanks have active protection systems Sarab-1 or 2 and thermal sights, which may indicate that the SAA may be preparing for a possible confrontation with US forces in al-Tanf.

The SAA also captured the strategic village of Alyania located 10 km south of Khneifis village in the desert of Homs. The US-backed Free Army (FSA) had previously captured the village before withdrawing from it after the great advance of the SAA in the Syrian desert.

This is the type of weapon that win wars, inexpensive, mass produced with local resources to overwhelm the enemy.

hahahahaha GOOOOD SAA IS LITERALLY UNSTOPPABLE NOW!!!

Bill Wilson

SAA is generally stationary and won’t advance unless their foes have withdrawn from the area. That’s why it takes those mofos forever to recapture any territory.

PZIVJ

Times have changed.
Since US/Jordan backed FSA announced their op “Desert Volcano” they only lose territory (They are pathetic and will be buried in the Syrian desert).
They are well advised to retreat back to Al Tanf as the cowards they are.
So they will be protected by the mighty US coalition airpower.

Alex

whatever you say fartson

Thegr8rambino

they have to be careful for mines and IEDS too

Gary Sellars

mofos? Fuck you terror-sympathiser…

There is no room here for AQ fan-bois or apologists for ISIS…

Alex Black

If you think al qaeda is a terrorist organization, then you must also think fsa is a terrorist organization. our agreement with them is like fing pigs in desperate times.

Gary Sellars

FSA is most definately a terror group. They are a Saudi-backed Wahabbi jihadist group pretending to be a “moderate” opposition by having a handful of ex-SAA Sunni officers in visible command positions and stopping their “troops” from adopting outward Jihadi regalia and long beards. Beyond that, they are jihadi goat-fuckers and deserve nothing but a slow painful death and a burial in a huge tank of pig shit.

Justin Ryan

The only reason the FSA exists is so that the USA can fund AQ without seeiming like its funding terrorists. But everyone knows the the FSA is AQ.

Tudor Miron

Gary… can you imagine that this so called American (Bill Willson) is working hard for those (Al Queda) who kiiled his compatriots on 9/11? I just can’t comprehand it.

Justin Ryan

Dude, he is not a terrorist supporter hahahaha. Seems u jumped to the wrong conclusion!
He is saying at the US backed FSA should retreat back to al-tanf border crossing because the SYRIAN army will get them otherwise.
He is not suggesting that AQ or ISIS will do it as they are not even in this area.

zman

No dude, he is disparaging the Syria forces, as he does all the time. He’s a cheerleader for the Zionist forces. You’re the one who jumped to the wrong conclusion. Go read some of his other comments. Probably Hasbara.

Mountains

I agree. they are basically all talk.. They have been stroke twice. They are all talk and nothing beyond that. Watch the US/Jordanian forces with FSA to march on them

zman

HAHAHA.. another shill. Explain how ISIS is on the ropes and why the US forces are still hiding in Jordan, afraid to face ground forces. The US is only good for fake attacks, killing civilians and ferrying ISIS out of dire circumstances. Go back to Fox, you’ll be considered a genius there.

Joe Doe

SAA better establish very good Air Defence System close to that area T4 Air Base will be good, before engaging americans

Real Anti-Racist Action

They need air defense before the Israeli or UK air-force wipes out the battalion 800 overnight.
Thermal sites on tanks don’t mean a thing when the UK/USSA/Israel are wiping out your troops from the air.
And we already know the Russian S-300 is useless against Israel, so Syria either needs S-400 or Iranian home made anti-air equipment.
Israel will likely fly into Jordanian airspace and then fire air to surface missiles from Jordanian airspace onto SAA troops inside of Syria, and then Israel will not say a word about it leaving the world to guess.
But us smart ones know who they are.

Gary Sellars

“And we already know the Russian S-300 is useless against Israel”…

Dream on Zio fan-boi. Sryia has S-200, not S-300. Russian have S-300/400 stationed there but won’t enage Zio jets unless they attack Russian forces, which of course they will never do. Zios are careful to keep their jets away from S-200 effective envelopes by flying low and using stand-off weapons, so why does any of that mean S-300 as “useless”?

“us smart ones”? You’re big-noting yourself without due cause…

Stephen

The main problem in Syria is Zio Jews that already exists there in Syria in US led gangsters and in Al-Qaeda, FSA, HTS, SDF and YPG etc. to kill Syrian, Russian, Hezbollah, Palestinian Liwa Al Quds etc.

Zio Jew gangsters have dual nationality passports that is of America and of Ezrahel.

Bob

There are couple of factors – the IAF have been to Crete to study and simulate training with an actual S-300 system that Russia sold to Greek-Cypriots, against constant Turkish intrusions, but Athens relocated it to Crete and then gave Israel access. The other is IAF’s habit of firing stand-off air to ground missiles from within Lebanese airspace, that brings yet another state into the whole equation of regional territorial airspace and actions.

zman

There is also the long standing practice of never selling a system that is identical in performance to those used by the home country. The US does the same thing, hence Israeli ‘upgrading’ US systems. Until there is an actual confrontation between US/Israeli weapons/aircraft and the S-300 system, there are no certainties as to superiority. But, just looking at the US attack on the Syrian base, I don’t give US, or Israeli tech, any kind of certainty in having an edge. There are also reports of Israel losing jets and a Dolphin sub, although Israel denies it. But, then again, Israeli military are known liars. Their stance that they only left Lebanon because they had accomplished their mission back in 06 is a good example. Hezbollah handed the Isralis something they had not gotten before…an ass kicking and lots of body bags…hence their phobia about Hezbollah getting even newer tech.

zman

And exactly how do you know this? You need to inform the Russians of this secret information. The missiles used near Al Tanf were S-200s…40 year old tech…and the US jets fled after seeing them coming.

Bill Wilson

I suspect that the 800th will be used to regain control of the border region in Dara’a.

PZIVJ

IT LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER TIGER ATTACK !

T4 can be used as an air defense point using modernized SA2 missiles, maybe the Russians can bring a battalion of S300 ( or more) with medium and long range missiles to protect their troops in the area, and of course their EW wares. Effective EW would neutralize delivery of GPS guided weapons, and make communications difficult. Shoulder fired missiles and Pantsair systems deployed with mobile units would be effective for lower flying aircraft, however, the battle is going to be fought on the ground, and Russia and SAA posses the most effective antitank weapon able to eat M1A2’s for breakfast. Therefore, antitank traps should be designed and deployed, involving no more than a squad with two launchers and enough missiles. When FSA gets in trouble like they did with ISIS, and US armour comes to their rescue, let the mobile units draw back keeping 4-5000 meters distance, to stay safe from the sabot shot, until the US armour is within the killing range of the antitank traps, then they can have it.

This would be synonymous of the battle of Easting in 91, except the M1’s will be on the receiving end of Kornet volleys that will burst their bubble of invincibility.

PZIVJ

Good tactical analysis.
But FSA is a very weak force, not sure that Jordan has declared war against Syria.
SAA needs to move forward to T3.

Jesus

New SAA units coming on line after their training are more capable than Iraqi troops in 91.
Jordan has not declared war on Syria, yet some NATO forces are stationed close to the border that are eager to help FSA.

Solomon Krupacek

oh jesus, the saa was never able to stop the attack of vbieds. and you have hallucinations about abrams :)

PZIVJ

You may be wise Solomon.
Did you like the TIGER SPAM ? :)

Solomon Krupacek

indifferent. i am panther ;)

Dejan

During Eastern Allepo offensive SAA succesfuly used ATGMS on ISIS SVBIED

Solomon Krupacek

sure 1 from 20 attacks was eliminated.

Gary Sellars

vbieds move quickly, and the terrorists often time their attacks to coincide with duststorms to hamper visibility and minimise defenders available response times. Abrams not so much…

Solomon Krupacek

aha! but … the kurds get them ;)

Gary Sellars

Kurdish areas are not full blown desert, but yes you are correct in that much of the SAA lacks discipline. They lost the majority of their good troops in the early part of the war with their “defend useless facilities to the last man” lunacy…. It takes time to recover manpower, restore morale, regain battlefield momentum, etc even if you have the Russians on your side.

Solomon Krupacek

and palmyra, alepoo, also not :P

do not try at me wit such childish texts.
btw., kurds already long time fight in desert and before fought in alepoo, too. ;)

Jesus

Please list multiple ISIS VBIEDS against the Kurds that failed. The reality of the matter is the Kurds liberated sparsely populated terrain, and did not have to conduct military operations in large urban areas. They are trying to work out an ISIS withdrawl from Raqqa so they will not get bloodied.
ISIS and SDF are proxies in the US portfolio, they are controlled by US interests and goals in the area.

and, was this the SAA???

Quote “and you have hallucinations about abrams :)”

Solomon Krupacek

hallucinations, that saa will destroy abrams, when is not able to destroy vbieds

Kell

Well the Iraqies managed to do some of this with 1950s era RPG-7s, I hear your critism but I dont think some of it is warrented and indeed nothing is invincible.

adam77

It doesn’t matter which is stronger, they both can annoy each other enough so that they should both fight ISIS, farther East, and not each other. If SAA sent these forces to Arak and East, against ISIS, they could link up with PMU without having to fight Abrams.

Kell

Saudi M1A2 vs Houthi Kornet.

https://youtu.be/-ePvNlfrxfw

Solomon Krupacek

i know, what is kornet. BUT the most important is the soldier. and SAA soldiers are not eble to destroy cars. jesus (teh living and commenting) can only dream about successful use by SAA. the reality up today showed something else.

Kell

Everyone has trouble with vbids when civilians are in the mix from US in Lebanon in the 80s onwards – Kornet makes a nice BBQ of the supposedly invincible Merkava https://youtu.be/oVSDFnc5ayY

Jesus

As a typical troll, sidestepping the issue …..Kornet EM has a range of 8000 meters for antitank purposes, it can penetrate +1000MM RHA, and yes, it can have M1A2 for breakfast when operated effectively.
Your red herring about VBIEDS, did any Kornet hit a VBIEDS and did the VBIEDS survive?
Again you choose to live in a realm of an ignoramus.

Solomon Krupacek

dis use the best anti tank weapons? not. that means, does not have. you lied.

Jesus

What are you mumbling? Can you speak some coherent words?

Solomon Krupacek

dis = saa (mistype)

Stephen

The destruction of Middle East is near.
Ezrahel terrorist state produces 23 nuclear Hydrogen bombs each year in Nuclear city of Negev and in Dimona nuclear plants of Dimona town.
Ezrahel produces hundreds of Chemical and Biological bombs each year in the town of Ness Ziona near Tel Aviv.

The Ezrahel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR), located in the town of Ness Ziona near Tel Aviv, hosts the bulk of Ezrahel research related to biological and chemical weapons.
Ezrahel wants more more more weapons and nuclear Hydrogen bombs.
—————————————————

PZIVJ

I may be ignorant on the subject, but a Hydrogen bomb is a nuclear fusion weapon, and not a nuclear fission weapon ?

Solomon Krupacek

he does not know, what he writes

Gary Sellars

Hydrogen bombs are thermonuclear devices where a fission bomb (uranium or plutonium core) is used to initiate fusion in a mass of dueterium/tritium.

Stephen

Correct. A school child also knows this.

Gary Sellars

Its hard to tell how many weapons the Zio terror state produces, but I think its a given that they have thermonuclear warheads, and can fit them to ballistic missiles. They have nuke-capable subs (given to them by the feckless Germans due to NATO-mandated Holohoax fake guilt) and land-based missiles like the Jerichos (Jericho III has a 10,000km range).

Funny how the West that is SO concerned about nuclear proliferation has NOTHING to say about Zio terror WMDs…..I guess its not about the weapons, but who has them, and where their loyalities lay?

Stephen

Thanks. I know the Israeli WMD production capacity.

ISRAEL produces 23 thermonuclear bombs.

I use very basic words I avoid words that causes confusion.

Many people don’t know that what is thermonuclear bomb. They just know Hydrogen bomb.

Actually our world runs by gangster politicians the Zionist that want to control the entire world economy by any means, I mean by blood of innocent children, women and men etc.

Stephen

Zio terror state have 400 thermonuclear warheads in their inventory with a power of 120 Kt to 500 Kt.

The nuclear bombs that America have dropped on two Japani’s cities N&H their strength were 15Kt and 20Kt.

Nuclear bombs kill some people immediately and some dies with in several months.

Not only this NB also changes the humanbody genetic engineering system too. I mean it effects body’s harmons, faciel structure and other tissue changes.

zman

Isn’t it strange that the west never questions Israel as to why they need a missile with a range of 10,000 kms? How many ‘Muslim terror states’ are there 10,000 km away? Oh yeah, Germany didn’t ‘give’ Israel those Dolphins, US tax payers did. Not to mention the stupidity in relying on Israeli ‘loyalty’.

Rodney Loder

I too admit that the SAA despite its turning the tide of history using the momentum that Gadaffi created might flounder due to orders from Putin, I think that they will beat these rodents in al-Tanif fairly quickly, Trump will do nothing to spoil his relationship with Putin, but the fact remains that the universally identified with narrative that was used by the Christians to take down the Soviet Union, has already been used as something other than what it is, to unhinge it will hurt the Christians badly, the Christians won’t give it away easy and Trump and Putin are both Christians.

Albert Pike

“…and Trump and Putin are both Christians.” Are they?

Rodney Loder

I guess your referring to Trump, Putin is pretty much cut and indentified, all we know about Trump is that he professes to profess the same Religion as Hillary, both are Evangelicals, followers of John Wesley, contrary to popular belief Protestant, Methodist and Uniting Churches​ all came from a movement called Wesleyanism, modern Evangelicals I think are trying to regain their roots, but Trump and Hillary see themselves as Renaissance Evangelicals.
But I was using Christianity in its political context.

Albert Pike

Dear Rodney, I don’t know enough about the believe system of ‘Renaissance Evangelicals’, but it sounded always from the Jimmy Carter beginning, as a collecting pottery for a believe system, which could be discribed with as massonic, which is eschatological and therefore zionistic – as is the whole concept of the ‘novus ordo seclorum’. The question that this is ‘Christianity in a political context’, is therefore disputable. Massonic belives – could be jewish, could be christian, could be islamic, could be luciferian – could be anything, like the subdivissions, like Scientology and OTO are proving .
Look nobody, can look into peoples brains or souls, so answers what people believe in, will always be guesswork. But You know what I mean – Putin has this friendship with Berel Lazar, and Trump’s, black kippah, was specifically mentioned by the Times of Jerusalem -and not just there- “…met the black kippah-clad Trump at the entrance to the plaza”. This goes with, what Miles Mathis writes about Trump’s religious family background…

Rodney Loder

Zionism is only a small part of Christian politics, ok I invented the term Renaissance Evangelicals because they are largely being defeated in Africa where Religion is much more graphic and where the Evangelicals rose from the need to support Portugal and then took over opposing Cuba and supporting South Africa, they got a real boost up the ladder so then the Renaissance Christians moved on to Rwanda, Zionism was extinguished in Africa by Uganda but the reborn born agains had enormous success in Rwanda and the Congo DR, but are being confronted with opposition now in the Central African Republic.
This is where Trump and Hillary’s politics hail from, different strategies same end.
I don’t have any interest in what most other people find interesting, I’m on a roll connecting the dots, sure everyone is a bit eccentric, Orthodox Christianity would be supporting the FSA right now if the rich man’s club that they believed they were joining when they took the opportunity and defected from the Soviet Union was open like the Christian Religion, but it was not for them at the time because they were too weak. We saw the exact same scenario with Museveni, who always supported Syria, he found out it wasn’t an open club for just anyone to join, but the Russians​ feel much more powerful than the Ugandans, they will get another invitation, and likely fall for it, that’s political Christianity.

I apologize on behalf of the israeli controlled us military,,using the us military and its sunni terror brigades to foment chaos and instability not only in syria….so that tne fake jews, zionists, can expand its territory from the nile tomthe euphrates….syria has lost half its population either dead or displaced…..itsmthe greatest human tragedy of our times….and now our jew controlled president has basically just created zan arab nato with the intent of wiping out all shia……america is ISIS, AL QUAEDA, AL NUSRA, ETC……….

Paul Lynch

World war 3 is a holy war…..syria is in the bible and the koran, as the armegeddon inducing, antichrist and al mahdi, harbinger country……war on terror, is no such thing……you cant have plans to take out 7 countries in 5 years (which has been greatly delayed), blow up the world trade, shoot a misile into the Pentagon, blame a CIA asset in Bin laden, who we used against the soviets, who died of fenal failure in late 2001, invade countries that had nothing to do,with the 911 false flag attack…..create a massive refugee problem of disgrunteld muslims entering western colonial power countries and think that you are gonna be ok…….

Paul Lynch

I apologize, syria……its a shame to see what israel saudi us and its arab surrogates are doing to your country and people…..americans think this keeps them free…….thats sad……
