DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:45 P.M.) – On Thursday afternoon, ISIS units carried out a series of hit-and-run attacks along the vulnerable government-held supply road linking Aleppo to the government mainland of central Syria.

Amaq Agency published pictures revealing jihadist fighters had deployed light weaponry and anti-tank missiles to target vehicles traveling on the section of the road between Ithriyah and Sheikh Hilal in northeastern Hama.

ISIS hopes to relieve pressure on the Maskanah plains frontier in eastern Aleppo where the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated nine villages earlier in the day.

Persistent attacks on the Hama-Aleppo highway may force regional commander-in-chief Suheil Al-Hassan to redeploy his Tiger Forces to address the increased ISIS hostilities.

Jeez, not a single picture of any damage to SAA, JewSIS will soon resort to publish some pictures taken in a studio near Dimona in the Negev or in Joollywood California with couple of selfies of them shooting in front of some burning tires and claim to have burned an entire SAA convoy. Hilarious to say the least, after the caliphate implodes in a ball of dust the Talmudhate will be next, revenge is a dish is best served cold…

This type strategy is disasters. The same mistake made Hitler in WW2. Moving troops back and forth and never was able advance. The same I see here. advances are very slow and no strategy or initiative. As I was saying before, SAA right now is not able to defend territories because created huge defences lines everywhere in Syria. Rather concentrate on sharing those defence line the SAA is only adding defence lines, all over Syria
