BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is on the verge of lifting the siege on the Deir Ezzor Airport after liberating a number of points near the provincial capital these past few days.

Led by the Al-Qassem Group of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the hilltops inside the provincial cemetery, leading to a series of clashes with the Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists this morning.

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) liberated three hilltops from the Islamic State militants, including Tal Hilal, Tal Al-Disham, and Tal Milad in the provincial cemetery.

In addition to liberating three hilltops, the Syrian Arab Army killed over 20 Islamic State militants, and destroyed one tank and
six technical vehicles fitted with 23mm anti-aircraft machine guns.

Today’s advances were made possible after the Syrian Arab Army broke-through the Islamic State’s first line of defense in the provincial cemetery three days ago.

After the terrorist False Flag chemical attack fiasco in Idlib there will likely be US Coalition air attacks on the SAA.

The fact that ALL the Western governments were immediately blaming Assad shows that all this hysteria was planned.

It also takes the spotlight off the death and destruction in Mosul.

Russian and Syrian Air defences will be on high alert I am sure.

The head chopping suicide bomber terrorists have lost much ground recently and the US Coalition do not like that.

Beware any “accidental” airstrikes by the “Coalition” lest they be “mistakes”.
