Syrian Army sniper trains sights on ISIS fighters in northeast Hama (Credit: Russian Federal News Agency).

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) launched a big counter-offensive in southern Damascus on Thursday, targeting the territory they recently lost to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Hajar Al-Aswad.

ISIL began the offensive on Thursday by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s front-lines from several axes inside Hajar Al-Aswad.

The terrorist group would then make some small gains in northern Hajar Al-Aswad before the Syrian Army and their Palestinian allies forestalled the Islamic State’s advance and launched their own attack.

According to a military source in southern Damascus, the Syrian Army and their Palestinian allies killed scores of Islamic State militants, while also seizing a large supply of their weapons.

The source added that the Syrian Army’s counter-offensive resulted in new gains for their troops and several setbacks for the Islamic State terrorists.

Pigs are much maligned animals that do not deserve to be fed with ISIS meat.

Tis better to let them rot and be consumed by microbes. 🙂

IMHO the SAA should have stopped food supplies long ago. But the problem seems to be remaining civilians and MSM claiming humanitarian disasters.

Yes and the freedom of aid supplies to terrorist pockets were abused by some of the charities that smuggled in aid supplies that were used to construct huge military engineering projects and the supply of US Coalition of Terror arms , ammunition and advisers.

A positive reaction to the forced enslavement of the civilians in the pockets has been the realisation by them that American Democratic Values only begat a Libyan style of Mafia gang rule and chaos.
