BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah are preparing to launch the second phase of their eastern Al-Sweida offensive that is geared to clear the last remnants of the Islamic State (ISIS) in this region.

According to a military report, reinforcements from the Republican Guard have arrived in the Badiya Al-Sham region of Al-Sweida in order to participate in the next phase of this offensive.

The Syrian Army and Hezbollah launched the first phase of this Badiya Al-Sham offensive early last week.

In a matter of hours, the Syrian Army and Hezbollah were able to take control of large swathes of territory, including several hilltops that were previously under the Islamic State’s control.

This next phase of the offensive will be focused on clearing the Islamic State terrorists from the Al-Kara’a area and large hilltop of Tal Barakat.

Recently, Islamic State offensives have been reported at Tal Barakat; however, all of these terrorist attacks have failed.

RU and Lebanon and, hopefully, Jordan and Qatar should do ALL they can to prevent USA and Israel from interfering.
China should put in a good word in favor of RU.
There is mistake from RU and Syria to not have involved China more in their support.

Only mistake is that you don’t understand situation
What makes you think that Assad didn’t ask China already?.
China participation was symbolic from the start. Nothing will change
They are interested only in rebuilding Syria.
In opposing-blocking US-NATO and Israel Russia is alone

Very simplistic view based on wrongful political assumptions. Here we face a geopolitical case, it’s all about economics and actually, in this geopolitical “game”, Israeli interest are on the side of Russia and Syria, as surprising as it may seem.

Why? South-Pars is the biggest natural gas basin ever… Read more »
