BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 A.M.) – After confirmation came in several hours ago that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and other pro-government forces captured the last hills to the west of al-Sukhnah and established total fire control over the town, reports from reliable sources are now suggesting that the SAA is currently in the process of entering the settlement.

Military sources exclusive to Al-Masdar News have just informed us that the SAA has – in a rapid seven kilometer dash – moved right up to the outskirts of al-Sukhnah and is, as of the present time, in the process of storming the town from its western and southern gates.

The al-Sukhnah’s liberation is now just a matter of hours, or perhaps even minutes.

The biggest threat to pro-government forces right now is not so much ISIS resistance, for it is mostly likely the terrorist group is in the process of disengaging from its positions in al-Sukhnah (if it already has not done so), but rather improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and mines which have undoubtedly been sowed throughout the town by the terrorist group.

Updates to follow.

If all goes to plan this will be a tremendous boost to SAA morale. There is always the danger of large gangs of ISIS attempting to reach Deir Ezzor city and also attacking the SAA supply lines in this very large area. Another danger of course are interdiction’s by the US coalition to slow down the SAA advance as after the desert is cleared and the borders secured the terror hub of Idlib can be dealt with. After that the Daara area and the North of Aleppo. Then the icing on the cake could be Israel having to give up… Read more »

Sounds like a dream Florian rather like a tale, it will never work like that. There will be all sorts of obstacles in front of Syria now, the vultures will never return their pray easily. Their backers, the US will in the end have to decide if they are with the rest of the World or against it. It will not going to be an easy and peaceful decision and transformation, but I do hope it will happen…

“Then the icing on the cake could be Israel having to give up the stolen Golan Heights” => Actually, Golan Heights were taken by force by Syria from Israel and re-taken by Israel in 1967, thus they weren’t stolen by them. Moreover, Syrians, as Iraqis, are Semites which were forced into arabisation and Islam during the 7th century. Founder of Damascus was Aram, son of Sem son of Noah. In 7th century, everybody was so speaking Aramaic, the language of northern Jews, incl. Jesus. In other terms, Florian, you’re a real anti-Semite as you want Syrian Jews (who don’t know… Read more »

What complete and utter BS…. Israelis are the anti-semites as the Ashkenazi Jews are a NON-SEMITIC people, while the Palestinians are the descendents of the Hebrew-speaking Judeans, albeit Arabised over the last 2000 years by exposure to the dominant culture, langage and religion of the region.

BTW when was the Golan heights ever part of the British Mandate? It was absolutely part of the French Mandate.

Always up-vote you on comments re IS, but this is complete s**t.

I will bet you a chocolate croissant Daeshbag that most of the world will be dancing in the streets when the Khazars (Ashkenazi’s) that are occupying Palestinian lands and murder their children are forced into the sea.

the arabs have occupied Israeli lands after the Romans expelled the Jews in 77-8AD. Israelis have absolute right to their lands, and the f*****g islamist arab scum should GTFO! while i do support Israel in this, i do not support their actions in Syria, i.e the support of headchoppers!
