BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – A large convoy of pro-government reinforcements arrived in the southeastern countryside of Homs, Monday, the official wing of the National Defense Forces (NDF) reported tonight.

The pro-government convoy consisted of hundreds of soldiers from both the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces that were previously deployed in different parts of the Aleppo and Damascus governorates.

The reason for their deployment is to strengthen the government’s numbers in the Badiya region of southeast Homs; this area is currently contested and filled with US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters.

Unlike the eastern countryside of Al-Sweida, the Free Syrian Army and their US allies are not going to give-up the Badiya region of Homs without a fight.

Last week, the US-Jordanian Coalition proved they would not tolerate the government’s advance to the Iraqi border, despite the fact they are illegally occupying a region of the country without approval of Damascus or the United Nations.

This battle will be a testing for the loyalty of Russ to the Syrian Cause, if Rus does get involved with air force support then it will be a strong message to JewSa and the whole North Atlantic Terrorist Organization to pack up and leave

U mention the word “loyalty” but I think this has been proven already! As for Russians bombing new Syrian army forces which most likely include coalition special forces, then u are asking a lot. If a Russian bomber killed US or UK soldiers then u can be sure this will escalate into WW3!
So maybe u should think twice before making such bold comments that questions Russia’s loyalty in compared to Russia’s logic and intelligence.
Thank God Smart people are in charge and not dumb f*****g idiots.
