Violence in Lebanon BEIRUT — Rebels fighting in Syria’s civil war crossed into Lebanon and raided a border town Saturday, killing and capturing security force members in the most serious incursion into the tiny country during its neighbor’s 3-year-old conflict. The rebels, who included foreign fighters, demanded to trade soldiers and police officers it captured in Arsal for some of the “most dangerous detainees,” the Lebanese army said in a statement. Masked gunmen roamed the streets as Lebanese helicopter gunships flew over the town, about 55 miles from the capital, Beirut. Gunmen killed two soldiers and wounded several others, the… Read more »

Growing Revolt Against ISIS Rule in Eastern Syria – Villagers Burn ISIS HQ to the Ground in Ashara http://news.antiwar.com/2014/08/02/growing-revolt-against-isis-rule-in-eastern-syria/ The ability of the mostly foreign ISIS fighters to maintain its control over broad swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria has rested on their ability to make a deal with tribal factions giving them considerable autonomy. Tempers are flaring in the eastern Deir Ezzor Province of Syria, however, where several villages along the highway near the Iraqi border are in open revolt, with days of fighting and ISIS sending reinforcements to try to retake the villages. Reports suggest the trouble… Read more »

Seems accurate. Fact is that IS is gaining ground in both Syria and Iraq. SAA will, if things go they way they currently do, be pushed out of the whole East by the end of the year except maybe the northeast because you have the kurds there.

Is this the rebels’ “battle of the bulge”, who knows. I am not worried of the rebels’ sudden advance in Hama province, could be costly when SAA manages to close the terrorists inside a pocket, and attack from all sides against the trapped terrorists.

WHo is financing the Kurds in Syria? How can the fight for so long with rockets grenades ,weapons etc.. without having a rich sponsor?> IRAQ Prime minister Maliki not long ago.. told that ISIS headquarters are in Kurdish zone.. And British and american media are the only one saying of fights between KUrds and ISIS. I Really think Syria needs to be careful of the kurds… they could be the Trojan Horse and facilitate Isis operations while pretending on western media to claim they are fighting them.. 700 ISIS fighters? no way.. careful with ISIS.. they do have more than… Read more »

That’s pretty much how things work on this site. Weird how their OK with admitting losing towns and base now in a very key logistical region like HAMA closing in on the city and airport but lose it when conflicting report come in about division 17 and 121 which are completely surrounded.

Just pointing thing out with a friendly comment.

Hey all, The “freedom” fighters seem to be eager to destroy every city in Syria. Even if i would hate my country i would never contemplate about turing it into a pile of dirth and rubble. If about half of those destroyers are Syrian i feel sorry for them. All of those fighters even the foreign ones are just pawns in the game. I wonder if some or most of them even know it. The irony is that even in the case there would be a victory and conquering of whole Syria they would be eaten by their masters, destroyed… Read more »

when a troll loses power or is identified, or change your name or change your website, for example the troll “Love from America” ​​is new, and starts with a “friendly” style, but always trying to leave his arrogant poison. I wonder if the trolls have received their salary for many thumbs down?

Low resolution (small) map. Can you make it bigger so that the older guys can actually see something? 🙂

Nusra and ISIL security precautions must be terrible and perhaps non existent.. There are 14 SAA operations listed today 03.08.14 by SANA. Almost all involved destruction of dens, gathering places, and, groups of terrorists gathered together in bunches. Amunition catches also destroyed. It is amazing that there organizations have lasted this long intact.. . .

This map shows clearly that this is rats offensive. Syrian Army should close that 3 miles long corridor as soon as possible. Morek is not so important until Hama is in danger. This is my opinion. Rats that are aproaching to Hama should be vaporized at all costs. Syrian Air Forces should be used exclusively for this operation. After that Syrian Army should regroup and retake Kafr-Zita to shortening the front line. After that we could think about any major offensive.

Apparently. We don’t know the balance of forces on the ground, if it’s a good idea letting them rushing in to a bottleneck we’re they will be slaughtered or if it’s a real threat to Hama that mus be stopped immediately.

I am not an armchair general, I am not in contact with the Syrian high command and I am not able to predict what will happen next. Like all of us, I can only sit in front of a computer and read about it. I prefer to rely on SP and trusted others.to help me do this. I am happy to trust in the Syrian armed forces to do their job and for Ziad to report it. From now, the tide has turned and we just need to remain patient (even for the return of Ziad), steadfast (don’t let the… Read more »

Eltho, there are a lot of folks who think that all Kurds are the same. I’m a big fan of YPG but, of Peshmerga not so much. Mainly because Barfly and his band of merry men seem to be much closer to CIA, the Turks and ISIS than they are to the troops who’ve been doing the work. There seem to be a fair number of Iraqi Kurds fighting with YPG, and I have to wonder if it’s not because they hold the same opinion of Barfly as I do.
