BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – For the second time this month, a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) convoy has disappeared along the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor convoy.

According to a report from eastern Homs, the Syrian Arab Army’s command in Palmyra lost contact with the convoy after it departed from the aforementioned city to Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian Army sent a search party to find out what happened to the convoy; however, they were unable to find any trace of the vehicles or soldiers.

A military source told Al-Masdar this afternoon that the Syrian Army’s high command believes the convoy was ambushed by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh).

The Islamic State has been carrying out ambushes on Syrian military vehicles over the last two months; this has resulted in the death and capture of several soldiers.

In response to these ambushes, the Syrian Arab Army has sent reinforcements to this front; however, they have been unable to quell these late night ambushes by the Islamic State terrorists that are believed to be hiding out in the caves of the Badiya Al-Sham.

Since they lost their territories in central and eastern Syria, the Islamic State has switched its battle plan from attempting to capture ground to carrying out hit-and-run attacks against both the Syrian Army and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

They need to start droping those TZAR bombs! It’s unpopulated area so there shouldn’t be any civilians around…

And you know that even Oxygen gets neutron-activated into Oxygen-15 = radioactive, don’t worry, all the matters taken up from the soil will become so…
BTW, Badya al-Sham is not so sandy, there is even more vegetation than many may think 😉 In fact, Israeli water technologies would have it much easier at making Badya al-Sham green than Negev.
I don’t think the [radioactive] black rain that comes after nuclear blasts would be great to develop agriculture here.

prince teutonic : Only two Tsar-Bombas were built, one was half loaded, the other was never loaded and is still in her museum since 1961. I doubt she still could be used, the resistors have lost in value since while capacitors, well, the best electrolyticals on market are guaranteed without varying of value only for 15 years. Moreover, there are no more highly customised Tu-95V available to carry such an enormous bomb. With windows breaking at more than 900km. Atmospheric focusing caused blast damage at even greater distances, breaking windows in Norway and Finland, IMHO, insurances companies will sue Russia… Read more »

If they were ambushed then there has to be some evidence of that even if they and the vehicles were transported away. Otherwise it must be another Bermuda Triangle .. If they are being ambushed at night then travel during the day with a drone or plane cover to see what is going on.

CIA and Christian Zionist Pompeo should be happy as are the Turks, PKK, SDF, Brits, France, Zionists, and all others. Transferring the fighters to al Tanf has worked well.
