BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) forces in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate launched a powerful offensive this morning, a local military source informed Al-Masdar.

Capitalizing on the U.S. missile strikes, the Islamic State stormed the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) checkpoints near the strategic town of Al-Furqalas.

According to local sources, the Islamic State has yet to make any gains near Al-Fuqalas, but without necessary air support, the situation could worsen in the coming hours.

The Shayrat Military Airport is one of the Syrian Air Force’s most important installations in the fight against the Islamic State due to its proximity to the Palmyra and Deir Ezzor fronts.

I voted for Donald Trump specifically and only to avoid this. I cannot believe this is happening. I do not know what to do about my country.

Trump is a deceiver, a elite puppet, a smooth talking snake, that has betrayed all of the people in the USA and the rest of the western world as the psychopath has just opened PANDORA’s BOX, and on all reality stated world war 3, without a doubt. something that is about to come to people in one big flash. … also throughout history, those that start a war, usual don’t fair to well, and the amount of enemies that the USA has built up around the world, will now be ready to give payback. the Zionist run country , as… Read more »

Does ISIL have air force? No. Why would be than difficult to defend position without air force? Only reason that I could think off would be if you don’t know how to fight

Trump better catch a wake up because the EU, Turkey and evil saudis might be happy, but those who vote for him and support him, are not happy with him at all and he should not think that we will not turn on him. We want him to make an ally of Russia and restore the Syrian govt whilst BOMBING THE MUSLIM JIHADIST SUBVERSIVES who work for the Muslim Brotherhood. He better start delivering his promises, and not change his mind on this one, because this one, is the big one. We do not want the continuation of obama and… Read more »
