BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has officially halted their field operations in the southeastern countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate after more than 7 weeks of being on the offensive against the Islamic State (ISIL).

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces have been ordered to halt their advance on Deir Ezzor until the Islamic State’s pocket in central Syria is fully cleared.

The Tiger Forces will now concentrate on the Hama Governorate, where many of their units are currently awaiting orders to storm the strategic town of ‘Uqayrbat.

‘Uqayrbat is considered the most important town under the Islamic State’s control because it is located along several roadways that flow through the Al-Raqqa and Homs governorates.

How very stupid this decision is. This decision came right after the US puppet SDF chief has just issued an ultimatum to the tribal leaders of al-Raqqa to accept their and their American/Zionist masters domination and occupation with the categorical dictate that: “There is no future for the Assad regime in Kurdish/US/Zionist invaded and occupied Raqqa.” It is obvious that the Raqqa native Arab inhabitants want to be re-united to the government areas and thus the threat of the foreign mercenary Kurds that if they continue resisting Kurish and US domination they will be completely exterminated.
