DAYR EL-ZOR: A large number of towns and villages were liberated the day before yesterday by the Syrian Army from ISIS residual elements. It was the result of a swift and sudden attack aimed at areas southwest of Al-Mayaadeen in which a confirmed 61 rodents were either killed or wounded. The numbers are based on an actual on-site assessment since the terrorists had no ability to remove their casualties. Many of the wounded were taken prisoner and interrogated. All will be tried before a military court.
An area of 2000 square kilometers was completely deloused on the road between Al-Ward Field, Al-Mu’ayzila, Tammaah, and Faydhat Ibn Muwaynis along a 40 km axis. As I write, the SAA is still dismantling a network of IEDs, mines and other booby-traps laid by the escaping terrorists. It was interesting to note, that the remaining rodents sped away to the American-protected Al-Tanf area.
Al-Hirri: For the umpteenth time, the United States was spotted attacking pro-government militias fighting ISIS and moving ever-closer to the Al-Tanf area. This time, it occurred at Al-Hirri, a few kilometers southeast of Al-Bu-Kamaal close to the crossing at Al-Qaa’im. The groups hit were Hizbollah of Iraq and Sayyid Al-Shuhadaa` Brigades. The actual number of dead militiamen is not known, but, according to Monzer in Damascus, it exceeds 20. The Iraqi government, a so-called ally of the U.S. in the fight against ISIS, first broke the news as American warplanes fired missiles at the military force right in front of Iraqi Army soldiers stationed on the eastern side of Al-Qaa`im.
As many of you have read, the U.S. has now made it clear that it is American policy to stay in the area so that Iran cannot build a passageway to Lebanon. This was announced by an American State Department apparatchik before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The U.S. does not care any longer about international law.
Zionist and American-supported cockroaches of the Nusra criminal enterprise went on a rampage near the forests of Jubaathaa Al-Khashab by starting fires aimed at destroying orchards on tens of acres of cherries, figs and apples at Hadhar Village. Many of the trees were 20 years old. Strong winds and terrorists made it impossible to put out the fires. This is precisely the same policy practiced by the stinking Zionist cockroaches of Occupied Palestine who are known to attack and destroy olive trees which have been on Arab soil for more than one hundred years.
Umm Baatina: In Central Qunaytra Province, the Syrian Army foiled an attempted infiltration by Nusra grubs in the direction of Jibba and Tal Kuroom. The Syrian Army confirmed killing or wounding 12 rodents. Many were seen heading to Zionist medical facilities for treatment.
DER’AH: Syria’s new Minister of Defense, former Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. ‘Ali ‘Abdullah Ayyoob, met with officers of the SAA just north of Der’ah and reviewed troop preparations before the anticipated frontal assault on Der’ah City which is expected to be relatively easy. The population of Der’ah is no longer hostile to the government having learned how futile their so-called “revolution” was and how virulent the terrorist organizations had become.
SUWAYDAA’: It should be obvious now to the American invaders at Al-Tanf that the Syrian Army is planning to uproot them much sooner than later. At Al-Kiraa’, Al-Hassaa and Al-Safaa in the southern province of Suwaydaa’, the SAA has sent in huge reinforcements fighting ISIS elements in the area. Once the area has been cleared, it is expected that the force will move eastward to Al-Tanf. The reinforcements are, significantly, from units of the Syrian Army’s special forces and Division 62. Hundreds of troops from the Popular Defense Committees are also a part of the force.
The force will start out at Tal Asfar and Al-‘Awra where the SAA has restructured its bases after 3 days of annihilating ISIS. ISIS only controls a few pockets in the Suwaydaa’ Desert regions inside extremely rugged terrain, hence, the arrival of special operations units. The SAA will be operating on three axes:
The first is Tal Asfar to Khirbat Al-Umbaashi to Suh Al-Majeedi (after the SAA liberated the Al-Ashrafiyya School and Al-Ruhba);
The second is at Al-Qassr to Al-Saaqiya to Khirbat Al-Umbaashi and then eastward about 7 kms.
The third is Al-Zuluf to Tulool Al-Safaa, about 10 kms to the north.
