BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 P.M.) – The Russian Special Forces have arrived in southern Syria this week to advise the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops currently combating the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh), a military source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source in Sweida city, the Russian Special Forces were deployed to the Al-Safa front where they will be embedded with the Syrian troops that are currently on the offensive against the Daesh terrorists.

The source continued that some Russian military personnel were already in the Al-Safa region before the arrival of the Special Forces; however, most were deployed in northern Syria before this move to the Al-Sweida province.

Similar to their roles during the SAA’s offensives in Deir Ezzor and Palmyra, the Russian Special Forces will advise the government troops on the ground, while also providing Daesh coordinates to the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The Russian Special Forces reportedly arrived with the Syrian Arab Army’s elite 42nd Brigade (Ghiath Forces) of the 4th Division; they were both in northern Syria prior to this deployment.

I am sure The Islamic Mujahideen Lions of Tawheed in eastern Suweida are patiently waiting the russian dogs. God-Willing its only a matter of time before you see a IS mujahid on video cutting the head off a Russian soldier with no mercy. May Allah bring victory the Party of Allah(IS) and humiliate and disgrace the Part of Satan(Russia).
