DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:30 P.M.) – Having effectively encircled the Islamic State in its last bastion of east Swaida, the Syrian forces began to break through Safa Hilltops amid massive jihadi collapse.

Storming the jihadi fortress was only possible after heavy and non-stop artillery and missile shelling that destroyed the terror group’s defensives and positions.

A military source said that Army units met up after rolling into the area from the southwestern and southeastern axes, advancing from Tall Alam and Qabr Sheikh Hussein respectively.

The same source added that so far the government troops have managed to secure up to 12 km deep into Safa hilltops aid fierce clashes with the extremist militants.

The Al Masdar forum is being managed by an organisation that uses AI to censor posts by banning key words that are often taken out of context. That is why few bother to write here anymore 🙂

The Syrian War Board is becoming more convential, every battle now. This plays well for S.A.A. and its allies. Also gets S.A.A. ready for a very short ground war with Israel or a longer one with the US and Turkey. Were I believe Syria’s allies will create an effective no fly zone..

“The Syrian War Board is becoming more convential, every battle now” => Not so, they just don’t have to fight on dozen(s) of front at once any more… “Also gets S.A.A. ready for a very short ground war with Israel” => I don’t think that Bashar is enough suicidal. Moreover, Israel has never been a problem for Syria as long Syria didn’t attacked Israel directly or through proxies… “or a longer one with the US and Turkey” => With the US and Turkey? LOL, Turkey is not far from being dropped from NATO. Nevertheless, Turkish militaries are FAAAAR more powerful… Read more »

Endgame. IS have sworn to die. Will they surrender instead?

Some have tried to escape in vain, others will surrender, and those holding the hostages will be killed. They’ve been on the run for some time and are probably have more weapons than food.

An interrogation would reveal the duplicity of the ‘Exceptional Nation’ I suspect:)

For sure, the Shitlamic Republic of Iran was the only one to go as far! It’s definitively an exceptional nation.

Salam aleycum, sux.
The very fact that you have to resort to using insults tells that you have no valid arguments.
Your zionist propaganda fails.

Excellent!. Once the clearing up finishes the SAA and allies can concentrate on Hama and Idlib.

I consider the president of syria and doctor a good man. No man perfect. But he doesnt come off as guidy or offensive. Dignified and respectable. Persians carry themselves that way also. I give bravo to all the people getting rid of an evil group who were given bad designs for the future of your xountey. It is a refreshing breath if human dignity to see the syrins prevail and hold their dignity…and oil…ansd sovereignty. A great example of human heroism in the face of tradegedy and sufferring.
