    Captured by IS

    That's enough stuff there to launch a new offensive...

    I've noticed the artillery in many videos is very close to the frontline....a couple of km's....usually within visual range of the targets.

    No wonder a lot of guns and ammo gets captured during each counter attack

    I find this a real puzzle. That is a lot of lorry loads of 'stuff'. This is an area that seems to have changed hands a couple of times, was it all SAA owned, why was it there, how did it get there and when?

    Where was an air strike when this happened?

    That is a good kick in the face to that POS Netanyahu.  Guy is an asshole to the 5th degree and I would be more than happy see him in jail or hanging. Israel deserves a far better leader than that POS.

    Apparently ISIS had a video of 2 dead Russian soldiers as they claimed. It has been reported. BUT, no one can figure out so far if these two dead are mercenaries or actual Russian soldiers. Either or, RIP.

    Can you imagine the boost in morale in Deir if a salvo from one of those Uragan we saw a couple of weeks ago arrived out of the blue (with no aircraft sounds) onto ISIS positions? Plus how crushing to other ISIS operatives watching?

    Ho! Ho! Ho! the proxy and well supplied forces are revolting, OK rebelling Smile For taste of what is to come for the Kurds perhaps, hope they are taking notice.

    Original document (in squiggle) at link.

    On August 31, US-backed Jaysh Usud al-Sharqiya and Ahmad al-Abdo Forces released in an official statement accusing unspecified sides of pressuring them to stop fighting against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). Opposition sources said that the “sides” mentioned in the statement are Jordan and the United States.

    In the statement, Jaysh Usud al-Sharqiya and Ahmad al-Abdo Forces said that they were under heavy pressure not only to stop fighting the SAA but also hand over their positions in the Damascus desert to it. The two groups stressed that they will continue their fight against the SAA and its allies at any cost. The statement included very offensive sectarian langue that this groups didn’t officially use before. Furthermore, Jaysh Usud al-Sharqiya and Ahmad al-Abdo called for other Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups in the Eastern Ghouta region and in southern Syria to aid them and to fight the SAA too.

    However, it’s not likely that any group will respond to this statement and break the de-escalation agreement. Although both groups insist on fighting the SAA, they were not able in the last three months to recapture any lost position or even to stop the SAA advance. Furthermore, these groups have not contributed any real effort to fight ISIS so far.

    It’s likely that Jordan and the US are extremely unsatisfied with their “experience” in the al-Tanaf base near the Syrian-Iraqi border. The US-led collation’s forces there failed to achieve any of its goals beside occupying a strategic highway to Iraqi.

    On August 29, Jordan refused to let injured FSA fighters to enter its hospital after the FSA attack on ISIS-affiliated Jaysh Khalid ibn al-Waleed had failed. The latest developments suggest that the US and Jordan might be considering dropping support to some of these FSA groups in eastern and southern Syria soon.

    Interestingly the FSA went for their leaders families being released in exchange for the pilot, not their key fighters. Maybe the SAA doesn't have anyone the YPG/SDF wants in exchange. Yet.

    US-backed FSA agreed in a deal to free pilot shot down 2 weeks ago

    US-backed YPG still refuse to release pilot shot down 2 months ago

    Mmmmm

    There's always that one guy like you that refuses to believe in absolutely proven stuff.

    Yes, there is a video of IS attack on Ghaman Ali(geolocated) with them capturing all of this, and slaughtering 10s of SAA soldiers.

    This area is the real challenge now coming up for the SAA

    Within Syria‏ @WithinSyriaBlog 13h13 hours ago

    1-If SAA end this battle in under 8 months , it will be a miracle this might become the one year battle

    2-when this battle ends ,over 6000 ISIS fighters should be killed , all ISIS command should be killed or captured
