BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) mercenaries of the Jaysh Ahrar al-Asha’er militant group have announced a new offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies in southern As-Suweida Governorate.

In the words of an FSA commander (shown in the video below), the operation has been code-named ‘Restoring Dignity’ and is aimed at retaking recently lost ground in southern As-Suweida Governorate from “regime” forces and “Iranian militias.”

Well over a week ago now, the SAA and allied pro-government paramilitaries launched a successful offensive operation that completely expelled FSA militants from the entire section of Syrian-Jordanian border that runs through As-Suweida Governorate.

It is clear that FSA militants in Syria’s southwestern badia (desert) region want to regain control over As-Suweida’s Jordanian border area and to this end, a new offensive by these US-backed mercenaries was somewhat predictable.

It seems they got a new supply of weapons from UK bases in Jordan. They received accurate coordinates and satellite pictures from the US/Israel and they dug enough Tunnels. Ok, we have seen this pattern in the past 6 years from these thugs. A new batch of TOWs makes them feel like lions. We will see them soon crying for fake chemical attacks when they miserably fail.

Actually, it’s Saudi-Arabia that supplies TOWs. US s**t made Israel pretty furious, guess why relations had so much soured between Obongo and Bibi? If you think it’s Israel’s interest to have another Muslim Brotherhood’s offshoot to rule Syria, you’re really f*****g deluded! They’re also furious about the gigantic arms deal the Trump signed with KSA… Actually, Amir Eshel, who just retired 10 days ago from being chief of staff for IAF, even wanted to launch a massive aerial campaign against IS. The rebuke of this project strangely coincided with Obongo signing the $33.8bln check in military help… Better think USA/al-Saoud,… Read more »

Saudis don’t dare to drink water without green light of their master US/UK/Israel. Saudi for sure source of money and supplying TOWs but they should either cross Jordan, or Turkey to do the delivery. Am I right or not? Actually, Israel prefers not only Muslim brotherhood but also ISIS and Nusrah near themselves than Assad who is the ally of Iran and Hezbollah. This is not my word this is the word of high ranking Israeli officials. I do not remember any Tow hit Israeli tanks by ISIS, Nusrah or Muslim Brotherhood. But I have seen a lot from Hezbollah… Read more »
