DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:45 A.M.) – Not so long before the official announcement of complete liberation of Maskanah town in eastern Aleppo countryside, the official YouTube channel of National Defense Forces (NDF) published a 10-minute-long video footage depicting the last 7 days of battles in the region.

Over the course of these days, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) led by its elite Tiger Forces division managed to recapture 22 villages eliminating more than 1,200 militants of the so-called “Islamic State” (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS).

In addition to that, around 100 vehicles, including tanks, IFVs and pickup trucks were destroyed in the process.

Video shows SAA heavily shelling IS positions and storming villages held by jihadists. Besides, drone footage of airstrikes on IS positions is also present in the video:

This is the real war on IS. The US should be ashamed. Their support of un-vetted Jihadi forces created the monster. But they do give only token support to the SDF boots on the ground fighting the problem. The Syrian government get nothing but is bombed and hampered instead.

Happy to see you back, bro! Well, the problem with US is their ERRORism (not terrorism) and most often a really poor evaluation of the consequences of their acts. Thus, the biggest shame should definitively being charged on KSA, Qatar and Turkey which are the core of this b****y axis of evil. What is disgusting at US level is that the Obongo-admin gave unlimited political/logistical support to the shameful actions of these 3 countries and wrongly accused Syrian states of crimes they didn’t made.

Strangely, “the west” also bombs IS. Aren’t you a bit deluded somewhere?
