The US-backed New Syrian Army withdrew from a small area it has seized this morning near ISIS stronghold in eastern Syria after the terror group launched a counter attack.

The NSA, backed by coalition airstrikes, captured Hamdan military base near the bordering town of Al-Bukamal at around 7 a.m. (local time).

According to ISIS account on social media (Aamaq Agency), ISIS jihadists launched a counter-offensive hours later and fully recaptured the airbase, killing 40 rebels and capturing 15 others.

They are neither moderate, nor are they’re rebels, the so-called New Syrian Army is the last surviving part of CIA recruited, trained, funded,later abandoned, then backed again unit to create fake rebels. They were recruited after they fled from Syria to Jordan, CIA abused their insecurity, hopelessness and weakness.

Most of this New Syrian Army is already gone, because they suffered massive ISIS suicide bombings, later they were cluster bombed by (as US alleged) Russian jets, later they tried to move from al-Tanf to al-Bukamal but were absolutely rekt and encircled.

Guessing daesh was running out of ammo and critical supplies thus explaining the usual failed attack of us-backed puppets. I heard that NSA (the syrian one hohoho) got delivered a lot of goodies recently, coincidence?

That first picture shows that this rebel group had spent part of its training learning how to be deployes via airdrop.

What we now know with absolute certainty that a portion of their briefvtraining period was entirely wasted learning things of zero benefit to the situation on the ground. The question now is: just how MUCH of their training was also useless nonsense.

all these arguments, that they wouldnt be rebels and they would be US backed mainly they are Iraq-backed, to secure the iraq-syrian border, SAA cant liberate, so lets use them for a better neighbor than f*****g ISIS, invading half iraq with syrian ressources. If you cant guard your own country, dont ignore the despreat acts of your neighbors to get peace, having a shitty neighbor. dont call them later terrorist or jihadists and dont call them puppets, at last the could get ground liberated from IS…(Arak still not cleaned from IS? ohhh) in the future, maybe SAA will kill these… Read more »
