Aleppo, Syria (11:00 A.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) recaptured the key northern Aleppo town of Al-Rai on Friday morning after losing it just 24 hours prior to the Islamist rebels.

The official statement released by the Islamic State's media wing this morning.

ISIS was able to recapture the rural town of Al-Rai after launching a rapid counter-offensive on Friday, leaving the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Tahrir and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah very little time to fortify the area.

In addition to recapturing Al-Rai, the terrorist group was also able to reclaim the Al-Rai Grain Silos and nearby hilltops that were seized by the Islamist rebels on Thursday.

I’m convinced that these “losses” by ISIS to the “moderate” terrorists and then the almost immediate retaking of the territory lost by ISIS, is the U.S.’s and their cohorts way of supplying ISIS with weapons and ammunition. Often you’ll read how the “moderate” rebels lost stores of U.S. supplied ammunition and weapons to the ISIS. Then, when ISIS is found with the U.S. weaponry, the liars in the United States can say it was lost in battle.

it is becming clear that only Western (US, Russian, European) ground forces can win this.

At least one Russian division is required to finish this war, that much is becoming crystal clear.

The locals can act as auxilliary, but they cannot do the heavy lifting in any effective way whatsoever. If it wasn’t for Putin’s air strikes, the government would have fallen by now. Putin needs to take the final step and finish this war – do it, and do it quickly, then get out.
