BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) will not halt their operations in the western countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate, despite the U.S.’ recent attacks on their air force near the key town of Resafa.

“America’s aggression will not stop our mission and we (Syrian Army) will keep fighting terrorists as long as they are in Syria,” a military officer told Al-Masdar on Thursday night.

Since the U.S.’ attack on the Syrian Air Force, tensions have remained high in the western countryside of Al-Raqqa, as both the Syrian Arab Army and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have exchanged hostilities on more than one occasion.

While these issues will likely dissipate between the government and Kurdish forces in the coming days, the constant interference by the U.S. Coalition has forced the Russian military to get involved in this part of the country to ensure the former does not continue to meddle in the Syrian Army’s operations.

Thank GOD for the strong stand Russia took following the shooting down of the Syrian jet – and may it remain resolute and not allow itself to be softened by phoney bologna overtures from the U.S. The U.S defense dept and state dept and shown the moral integrity of a rabid wild boar hog. They have been disgraceful. May GOD greatly bless Russia and pay back to it 100 fold for every dollar it has spent on protecting and blessing Syria. God bless Syria and Russia greatly!

Unfortunately now its too late because the US through its SDF proxies has blocked the Syrian Army forces from advancing towards Raqqa city proper from the south where the US invaders had left the door wide open for ISIS to redeploy elsewhere. Now the southern axis has been blocked and the Arab Raqqa native civilians who are still there are condemned to mass extermination by US phosphor or cluster bombs or SDF guns, or mass eradication to make way from servile Kurdish refugees from Turkey, Iraqi Kurds mostly Peshmarga and their family, and other duped Americanized Arabs from all over… Read more »

Anyone standing in the way of the SAA should be treated as ISIS.
