BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) appears far from defeated following their recent attacks against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in eastern Syria.

Over the last two weeks, the Islamic State has increased their attacks against the Syrian Arab Army, launching big assaults on the latter’s positions around the key city of Al-Mayadeen in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

On Saturday, the Islamic State launched a big assault on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the Badiya area of Al-Mayadeen; this resulted in several casualties for the military.

According to a security source in Damascus, these latest Islamic State attacks in eastern Syria are not a coincidence. The source says the Islamic State is regrouping and preparing to launch a major assault that might see them retake land in vast desert region of Syria.

He would add that the Syrian Arab Army is aware of the Islamic State’s activity, but the biggest problem has to do with the terrain, which is favorable to the terrorist group because it allows them to disappear in the caves and mountains of the Homs and Deir Ezzor governorates.

Furthermore, it is not just the Syrian Army that is being targeted by the Islamic State. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have also been targeted the Islamic State sleeper cells, especially in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

The SDF have been conducting combing operations against the Islamic State in the governorates of Al-Raqqa, Al-Hasakah, and Deir Ezzor; however, it appears that the terrorist group still maintains several sleeper cells across the eastern Euphrates.

French Foreign Legion method required : draw squares on a map. Enter one, kill EVERYTHING while fully combing the area, have the “regular” troops coming to keep the square in control, then send the Legion to the next square… Now, the Legion are elite highly trained troops and once they’ve been here, you can be sure the area is quiet, just like any graveyard.
This strategy works very well for such kind of area since 1831.

Problem is, there is not one religion and not The Truth. There are religious truths, but no Truths. They are relative and not absolute. That us a fundamental mistake many followers make. A mistake that makes them often intolerant and prejudiced. Religion must be private, not public. No coercion towards anyone, onl y respect. No theocracies.

Hey, Abu bark, in ISIS, you like Haddith a lot, right? Whatabout this one?
– Sahih Muslim Book 1 Hadith 271 :
“It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.”

So crawl back to your hole between Mecca and Medina, snake!

Its very difficult for me to see those many incidents are by ISIS only. Those are from any, which dont like Asasads and SDF.

I dont like Assads at all and allow me to compare with, that when the rat is not there the mice are more active.

Hevonly survived thanks to external players like Russia, Iran. That is correct. Foreign support keeps his regime alive.
