  1. How utterly wonderful – for there to be now a great supply route between Damascus and Baghdad! Such great news! May God greatly protect and enhance the fighting effectiveness of every pro-Assad soldier, fighter and pilot throughout Syria and may He powerfully come against every illegally present fighter, soldier and pilot in Syria.

  2. BUT ALWALEED IS FAR FROM SAA WHERE THEY ARE LOCATED BCUZ ALWALLED IS INLINE WITH AL TANAF WHICH IS CONTTROLLED BY FSA TERRIOST . THEN HOW COME SAA REACHED ALWALEED CROSSING ARE THEY HELPED BY PMU AND IRAQI SOLDIER TO GET INTO IRAQI TERRIOTRY WITH PM PERMISSION.

    • Le liveuamap shows a junction mid course between al-Walid and Faydat al-Kammunat, probably on the Iraqi side of the border… Or not.
      Note there is also a Syrian rush to al-Qaim area on a two pronged axis, on the Syrian side of the border. One is already in the Deir-Ezzor governorate.
      Desert warfare can move very very fast 😉
