BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 A.M.) – Minutes ago, a military source told Al-Masdar News that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had broken into the Islamic State’s (ISIS) bastion in southwest Syria after heavy airstrikes from their Russian counterparts.

According to the military source, the Syrian Army entered the ISIS-held town of Jaleen, tonight, liberating several sites inside and outside of it.

The source added that the Syrian Army is now working to secure the entire town, as the ISIS-affiliated Jaysh Khaled bin Walid terrorists continue to retreat south.

In addition to their advance at Jaleen, the Syrian Army also scored an advance near the key town of Tafas, which is located at the northeastern corridor of the Islamic State pocket.

These advances took place tonight after the Russian Aerospace Forces launched a massive attack against the Islamic State terrorists inside the Yarmouk Basin region.

The Russian Aerospace Forces reportedly launched more than 30 airstrikes over this region in southwest Daraa, paving the way for the Syrian Army to advance through the terrorist group’s fractured defenses.

IS mujahideen kill and are killed. This will happen in order for Allah to take martyrs from among them. Saa will also die in trying to overcome IS mujahideen. IS specialize in terminating SAA cockroaches. Especially Khalid bin al Walid mujahideen are ruthless against the enemies of Allah.

They are very good fighters and very brave too, but they’re not doing very well against the Russian bombs, just look at what’s happening now.
Killing innocent people isn’t the way to change things, it just make people hate you for what you do as well as what you believe.
Say goodbye to Syria and get ready to say goodbye to Iraq as well, your people need a new home now, I suggest the US or UK.

What interests me is “terrorists continue to retreat south.”, but South = Israel. The Yids categorically stated that they would not allow any rebel vermin into Israel, so your guess is as good as mine; especially since they have already let the white helmets in !!.

They’re heading south to where Isis is fighting, from there they hope to cross the border into Jordan, if they can. But the SAA have their side locked up tight and King Abdullah won’t let them in anyway, that leaves them 3 options, reconcile, bus trip, or coffin.
I suspect it wasn’t just the white helmets using the Golan strip to flee to Israel, I’m sure the US, UK and the Israeli’s have already evacuated all of their most important assets through this pathway long before the white helmets used it.
