BERIUT, LEBANON (8:45 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) is regaining its strength near the ancient city of Palmyra, while the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and jihadist rebels trade offensive in northwestern Syria.

Speaking to Al-Masdar from Damascus city, a military source stated that the Islamic State has recently stepped up their operations in central Syria, targeting the Syrian Army more frequently around the key road between the cities of Al-Sukhneh and Palmyra.

According to the source, the Islamic State’s ambushes and raids in central Syria are well-coordinated and proof that the terrorist group possesses the ability to wreak havoc inside the country.

In May, the Syrian Army suffered more than 100 casualties at the hands of the Islamic State in central Syrian. However, it appears that the June casualties may exceed those of May, as the Syrian Army has already lost several soldiers as a result of the terrorist group’s attacks.

With the ongoing battle in northwestern Syria occupying many of the Syrian Arab Army units, there are grave concerns that the Islamic State may take advantage of the situation and launch a wide-scale assault against the government forces.

The Islamic State is estimated to have between 2,000-3,000 fighters in the Badiya Al-Sham region of central and eastern Syria; this leaves the terrorist group with more than enough fighters to take over a large part of this desert region.

Should this happen, the Syrian Arab Army may be forced to halt their operations in northwestern Syria in order to stop an Islamic State advance.

The KSA-USA axis of evil must be destroyed. Russians are europeans, the US are not, the US and Israel are siding with Islamic Radical forces.

The Syrian Arab Army must implement new security measures against ISIS by keeping an eye on those suckers and prevent them from coming back to towns where they don’t belong

Prophet Muhammad pbuh said, there will come a army carrying black banners who will fight 80 nations and they will liberate al aqsa and no force will be able to stop them, here you have them the army has arrived they will separate Muslims and non Muslims, Islamic State is the army of Mahdi, as you see neither Russia or America can stop them until they reach jerusalem, you shias are a disgraced sect

You know why? Because Hamas and hezboshaitan is there to protect Israel and that’s why Obama and Trump gathered 80 nations to stop Islamic State but they failed to stop them, so tell why doesn’t hezboshaitan and Hamas do anything? Looooooool

Or SAA can withdraw from the Badiya on a deal with SDF. Swapping oil for land. Trading concessions. SDF is willing to compromise, but will never return to pre 2011 where Assad and his cronies exploited the region, depriving kurds of rights, land, freedom, language and even life.

Just last month,
Over 100 Assadi thugs were killed by ISIS.

Over 50 killed by FSA & over 400 more killed by other Extremist & Rebel Groups in idlib and other parts of Syria.

Despite bombing even schools and hospitals the death counts of Dictator’s forces is definetly increasing.

Now Criminal Dictator Assad going to halt idlib offensive in order to protect his troops from the Islamic State but result will be worst.

Let see, how many more Assadi thugs will be killed by dozens of opposition forces and groups Next Month.

Lets see how many more “rebels” and US forces (all thugs) keep dying for greater Israel. Funny that you get a kick from terrorists killing ppl, you should welcome them where you live and see how you like it. You may even get to star in a video.
