BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force unleashed a powerful attack against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorist organization in the central region of Syria on Monday.

According to a field source in the Homs Governorate, the Russian Air Force launched their airstrikes over several sites in central Syria on Monday, including the Al-Sukhnah region, which is where the terrorist group carried out a big attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) last night.

The Russian Air Force also launched airstrikes near the historical sites of Al-Rusafa in southern Al-Raqqa, as the Islamic State terrorists had previously attacked this area.

These airstrikes by the Russian Air Force coincided with a counter-attack by the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) in the Badiya Al-Sukhnah region of eastern Homs.

The Islamic State’s heavy attack on Sunday evening resulted in a number of casualties within the ranks of the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces and some gains around Al-Sukhnah.

March 19, 2018: USA Army General Joseph Votel, the head of CENTCOM, said to the USA Congress that “Assad has won this war and we need to face that.” To save lives, the opposition should lay down their arms, and work together, and rebuild Syria.

Militarmente no hay duda de que Rusia es una potencia, pero o son muy cautelosos o son muy ingenuos e inocentes en cuanto se trata de geoestrategia o geopolitica, lo que sucede en Siria es una muestra. Cuando liberaron la region de Deir Izzor y habian establecido una cabeza de puente en la orilla oriental del Eufrates, debieron a toda costa continuar su avance para impedir la captura de los pozos petroliferos por parte de la coalicion o por lo menos apoderarse del principal pozo Al Umar.

You mistake lions and cockroaches… When roaches infest a house, you fumigate… You know that FSB buries all the ISIS, Qaeda etc, bonded into pig skins don’t you? I’ve heard that the US did the same to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi… Assad should do better : harvest ISIS organs, then, since Syrian Christians have pig farms, feed the pigs with ISIS carcasses, and send footages of the”meal” to their families… Burying ISIS into pig skins is wasting pig skins : they can be used to make leather, it’s a pity! Russians must become ecologists and so recycle ISIS : with their… Read more »
