DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:30 A.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) alleged on Thursday that their forces killed 198 “PKK” fighters in northern Al-Raqqa over the course of 10 days.

“The PKK apostates have lost 198 fighters and 15 armored vehicles in 10 days in Al-Raqqa,” the Islamic State claimed on Thursday.

It should be noted that ISIS often makes these claims when they are on defensive in order to lift the morale of their fighters, despite never displaying any proof to corroborate these numbers.

The “PKK” fighters ISIS is referring to are the soldiers from the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) that are currently on the offensive in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

The Syrian Democratic Forces are steadily advancing in the northern Al-Raqqa countryside, liberating several villages and hilltops from the Islamic State terrorists.

In the coming days, the SDF will likely intensify their assault as they push further south towards the Islamic State’s capital.

And the most impressive are Daesh’s anti-aircraft performances! They downed more aircrafts than the whole number of known crashes for 20 to 30 years!

The west is so desesperate that it need an ennemy so the west needs to have an ennemi to still exist and claim that it is “the free world”. But, the west is just the terrorism world. Even, Americans noticed it and voted Trump.

It’s just the military-industrial complex that needs enemies to exist. I think you’re not a bad guy but you really have troubles understanding how things work. Just consider history : end of the cold war in 1991. There are no more enemies! Nearly all weapon builders took big hits! And not only in the US, just consider war planes : There are only still Lockheed, Boeing and Northrop in the US and Boeing is even considering pulling out of this business to concentrate on the civilian market. In Russia, Sukhoi, Mikoyan, Yakovlev, Tupolev and Ilyushin have merged in a single… Read more »
