BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has scored another major advance in the Deir Ezzor Governorate today, liberating the strategic Thardeh Mountains that overlook the military airport from its western perimeter.

Led by the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army launched their final assault on the Thardeh Mountains this morning, striking the Islamic State’s last positions at the southwestern peak.

Unable to hold their positions, the Islamic State was forced to withdraw completely from the Thardeh Mountains, leaving the Syrian Army in full control for the first time since October 2016.

In addition to liberating the Thardeh Mountains, the Syrian Army also took full control of the Kroum Hill in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor.

However, the Syrian Army would not stop there; they would launch a powerful attack east of the Thardeh Mountains this afternoon.

As a result of this attack, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate the Nishan Gas Station, along with the nearby water pumping station.

especially since the state of Florida (which was recently hit by the storm) was just getting ready for what was supposed to be the best harvest in over a decade.

According to the CIA, the Russians have changed the weather in the United States. 🙂 🙂

no one can change the weather, only destabilize the climate.

for example, to effectively destroy a hurricane, you need to fire all of the earth’s nuclear armed ICBMs into a hurricane… every 20 minutes.
