BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:25 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) is preparing to make their last stand in the northeastern Hama, as their forces face-off against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the key town of Surouj.

Backed by heavy airstrikes from the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Syrian Arab Army was able to plow through the Islamic State’s defenses on Thursday, liberating dozens of localities inside this terrorist pocket in northeast Hama.

According to a military report from Hama, the Islamic State is currently confined to 250 square kilometers of territory in northeast Hama and an incredibly small pocket to its southwestern axis.

With their forces trapped in these pockets, the Islamic State has three choices: 1) fight to the death against the Syrian Armed Forces 2) Fight their way out of the pocket to jihadist-held Idlib 3) surrender.

The terrorist group is most likely going to try and fend off the Syrian Army assault; however, they will not be able to hold on for long, as the intense bombardment of their pocket becomes too much for their exposed fighters.

“Islamic State” is not the right name for the organization. This is Anti-Islamic State. They hate Muslims, they rapes Muslim women, they destroyed Muslim countries including historical monuments.Thugs from IS and Al Qaeda in Syria and Iraq are behaving exactly the same way as Jews towards Palestine and Palestinians. Anti-Islamic State should be completely eradicated, the sooner the better.
