BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:25 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their march through the Islamic State’s east Homs pocket tonight, liberating another two towns from the terrorist group’s grips.

Led by elements of the 18th Tank Division and 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army advanced from recently liberated Shuwayha towards the towns of Al-Sheha and Rasm Al-Aqidat.

Within hours of launching the attack, the Islamic State forces were forced to retreat from Al-Sheha and Raasm Al-Aqidat, leaving the two towns to the Syrian Arab Army and their allies.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies are only 12km north of Shandakhiyah, meaning the Islamic State’s presence in east Homs is nearly over.

Advance my glorious Syrian Arab Army, without pity, remorse and mercy.
Well, they do not deserve even in the least, those dams terrorist animals at the service of evil Americans.

After you will finish your b*****b to Ziojews, can you elaborate, how you came to that conclusion?
May be you have forgotten to take pills in the morning?
