BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) launched another large-scale assault at the strategic T-4 Military Airport in the western countryside of Palmyra on Monday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) near the Abandoned Base and Sha’rah Hills.

ISIS began the assault by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s positions west of the Badiyah area of Palmyra; this was followed by a wave of attacks on the government’s positions north of the Sha’rah Hills.

Despite their best efforts to overwhelm the Syrian Arab Army’s units by sheer force and numbers, the Islamic State terrorists were ultimately repelled after a violent 4 hour battle on Monday afternoon.

According to a military source at the T-4 Airport, the Syrian Arab Army killed more than 25 Islamic State militants during Monday’s battle, while also destroying at least 3 armored vehicles that were armed with anti-aircraft machine guns.

Over the last two weeks, the Islamic State has suffered an estimated 225 casualties at the T-4 Airport, while also failing to make any significant gains in that time frame.

Did anyone ever make a total headcount of the supposed losses of these retards in Syria and Iraq? The daily numbers from all fronts just don’t add up to what was once proclaimed as the overall strenght of the fighting force of the barbarians. I got the feeling that there is still an indefinite re-supply of manpower flowing across the borders from all the nations that are currently ruled and opressed by criminal family gangs and their associates from the Zio-Yankee empire.

Muslim Popultion worlwide is estimated 1200 milions if only 0.1 percent IS retarded enough to be brainwashed into wahabism thats 1,2 million wahabi, takfiri Army invading a country of 300.000 Army including reserves, like Syria. There is a long road ahead, alternatively you could bomb the one country in which whabism was born and Nurtured under British protection, the same country still pumping millions of oil dollars into spreading wahabism, That is Saudi Arabia, of course you may need to send message to Muslim Brotherhood supporters like Turkey,but all in all it will be way faster and more effective than… Read more »

Muslim population estimated 1.2bln? I’m very doubtful about this! It’s OK i.e. if like in Iran, you consider there are 78M but if you consider that only 2% of population intends the Friday prayers, you have only 1.56M Muslims and the country is just as religious as the one considered the less religious on Earth, Estonia. Time to seriously promote. When you know that a poll was made in KSA, asking ppl in which country of the ME they’d prefer to live and that 78% answered… Israel (!!! reason was for near all : because of freedom!), you can assume… Read more »

So everyone wants to live in Israel ah?? aaaahahahah it is almost funny that many staunch zionists define themselves as atheist, you are getting closer by the milimetre with each of your comments, Regarding my statement about reinstating forms of Islam previous to wahabism the difference between you and me gain is I dont have an anti Islamic agenda, you clearly do, I any case carry on “believing” in Atheism.Religion is a way of searching and I respect any way as long as it doesnt get in my way,like in the case of Wahabism or the Zionist cult which are… Read more »

Datuk : It is estimated that over near 6 years, SAA took near 100k terrorists outs, US coalition took about 50k out in 2 years (and around 35k in the last year) and Russia also about 35k since they intervened. So you can estimate there are 185k psychopaths less on Earth. “I got the feeling that there is still an indefinite re-supply of manpower flowing across the borders” => In 2015, it was estimated that 3500 goatfuckers entered Syria from Turkey each month. As soon as Russia began to intervene, it fastly fell to 300. Now the takfiris stating the… Read more »

This is the attrition phase before the storm of palmyra. Love it. I’m really not bothered by the fact ISIS took palmyra this time, unlike last time. Lol dont know why. I just know SAA can take it back and its only a small setback and those moronic cockroaches will lose more manpower that they need badly for raqqa and DEZ.
