BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has lifted the nine month long siege imposed on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport by the so-called Islamic State (ISIL), Hezbollah’s official media wing reported this afternoon.

The Syrian Arab Army was able to lift the siege after liberating the territory around the Tahtuh and Harabish districts, forcing the Islamic State terrorists to retreat away from the road blocking the provincial capital from the Deir Ezzor Airport.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army was able to meet up with their forces at the Deir Ezzor Military Airport for the first time in nine months.

The next objective for the Syrian Arab Army is to liberate the Thardeh Mountains; once cleared, the Deir Ezzor Military Airport will be secured from its western perimeter.

The good news just keeps coming. I am sure though that Russia has a close eye on the maschinations of the US and her proxy terror gangs as they advance to steal the Syrian oilfields of Eastern deir Ezzor.

I’m not afraid of USKurds. SAA, with the help of Russian engineer technology, is ready to cross the Euphrates.

I would think that the Kurds have been promised the Deir Ezzor oil and gas fields by the American invaders in return for their treachery to Syria.

Kurds are puppets of US interests. The Americans first bet on ISIS, later at the Free Salafist Army and both went bankrupt. So now they bet on the Kurds. And again it goes bankrupt. SAA crosses the Euphrates and stops at the border with Iraq. The Kurds will later regret their connection with the US. The Communist coalition with the imperialists can never work for long. The Kurds are naive. If they deal with the Syrian government, they could gain partial autonomy. The US will not get anything.

If the colonial invaders strip Syria of its precious Deir Ezzur’s oil and gas fields and reserves Syria is doomed. The Syrian government forces and allies should step up the momentum to close the path for the Kurdish Zionist colonial invasion forces even though the colonialists have a clear path in front of them since ISIS are their allies. In Raqqa the colonialists are only confronting what eprenains of the native Arab population and their tribal leaders who refuse to hand their lands and homes to the Zio/Nazi Kurdish invaders.Let’s not forget that in 2014 when ISIS invade Raqqa, the… Read more »

I agree with most of what you say with the exception of the Tiger force advance. This advance would have been through well defended ground and without the control of the areas of eastern Homs and the Sukhana axis the Tigers would have been savaged by the US proxy terror gangs of ISIS who would have had freedom of movement. The SAA has recovered from near collapse in 2015 and it is remarkable how effective they are now , especially when pitted against the proxy terrorists backed by the some of the wealthiest nations in the world. Including the rabid… Read more »
