The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) reportedly captured the last two checkpoints under the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) control near the village of Al-Bardeh on Thursday morning.

This report was confirmed by an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus after ISIS alleged they captured these checkpoints earlier today.

ISIS is now at the outskirts of Al-Bardeh; if this aforementioned village is captured, they will be able to strike the strategic town of Quraytayn in east Homs.

Quraytayn was liberated by the Syrian Armed Forces in March of this year after a month long battle with the ISIS terrorists that captured it several months before.

Fair to say that at the moment SAA is spread too thin, fighting on too many fronts at once.

When they recapture Al-Sha’ar Gas Fields they’ll send Tiger forces to this area… Suheil al-Hassan is more and more becoming Assad’s Fireman and his Tiger forces a Fire brigade…

There are some 1 million men between 25-35 living in the government controlled area.

If I was Assad, I’d put at them: of that 1 million I want 100 thousand to join the army during the next week. Voluntarily. If not, I’ll surrender to IS. EITHER YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM OR LIVE WITH ISIS! YOUR CHOICE YOU DOGS!

It seems like syrian people have no guts to fight for their freedom. Let them be slaves.There is hardly any discipline in SAA but sadly that can’t be said for Daesh.
