BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:35 P.M.) – It did not take long for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to get going around the Islamic State’s (ISIS) de facto capital, Al-Mayadeen, as their forces managed to liberate several areas en route to reaching the city today.

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army has since entered Al-Mayadeen from its western gates following a short battle with the remaining Islamic State terrorists holed-up around the city.

The source added that the entire city has been emptied by the Islamic State in preparation for this upcoming battle to take Al-Mayadeen.

Al-Mayadeen is the Islamic State’s capital city, but it is also strategically located west of the Al-‘Umar Oil Fields, which are the largest producer of oil in Syria.

Both the US-Coalition and the Syrian Army are pushing to capture the Al-‘Umar Oil Fields; however, the latter currently has the advantage with their recent advance into Al-Mayadeen.

So, SYRIAN people are invading SYRIA? Where’s any logic in that?
The Syrian soldiers who are protecting the entire world from terrorism are ”Assad’s dogs”?
Shame on you, imbecile!
