BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began an operation on Sunday to clear the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) hideouts west of Deir Ezzor city.

Backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Arab Army concentrated its efforts along the Deir Ezzor-Sukhnah Highway, where the Islamic State has been wreaking havoc these last two months.

In particular, the Syrian Army is combing through the area around the town of Al-Shoula, which has seen a recent increase in activity by the Islamic State.

Al-Shoula was liberated by the Syrian Arab Army during their large-scale offensive against the Islamic State in 2018. Since its liberation, the town has witnessed a number of attacks launched by the Islamic State sleeper cells.

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Finally, better later than never. When is SAA planning to get rid of those black spots ? I think, those black spots are not in the Russia-Turkey agreement.

It has to be done. That way, it will end up freeing up more manpower to cleanse Idlib.
