    Looks like they are going after the oil fields. But might have to wait in till Deir city is liberated

    First they have to get across the river again. Anyone seen parts for another pontoon bridge?

    Horrific images: ISIS executes Kurdish fighters at oil field in Deir Ezzor

    100% staged. They probably snatched some Kurds east of the river and produced the clip.
    Other than that there seems to be a "happy and uneventful co-existence" of IS and SDF.

    They are both a tools of the same master but I don't think they cooperate at grassroots level...btw, these infortunates in the pics are probably some local Arab tribesmen that have been lumped into the "Democratic" forces

    -Battle for Al Mayadin.


    Seems like that the SAA overwhelmed isis with sheer firepower. T-90 present. Looks like TOS-1 or some other form of thermobaric weapon was also used. Incredibly tense fighting.

    Seems like well coordinated firepower considering how quick they captured a large fortified town

    About the yesterdays incident IAF firing on Syrian S-200 systems.
    Allegedly an F-35 was hit by S-200, we will know soon more hopefully.
    if this is true its f...ing huge!


    Syrian Arab Army (Facebook)

    We didn't comment on what happened yesterday between the Syrian Air Defenses and Zionist's warplanes for many reasons but waiting until we get our followers inside story that wasn't published by anyone else as we usually do was the main reason.

    Due to circumstances we are still not able to get anything out yet.

    However, the statement issued by the General Command of the Syrian Military clearly indicates that a Zionist jet was hit over Lebanon as they were attempting to enter Syrian Airspace at 0851 October 16th

    Later that day at 1138 Zionist's jets launched multiple anti-radiation and stand-off missiles from Northern Palestinian Airspace in attempt to target an SyAAD battery in Damascus countryside; the missiles were foiled to cause a direct hit by countermeasures that we will not go into now, but one of the missiles impacted near a radar station causing reparable damage.

    However, we woke up the next morning to news coming from the Zionist entity that one of their state of the art F-35I had an accident "Bird Strike"

    The incident allegedly took place “two weeks ago” but was publicly reported only on October 16 just few hours after the Syrian Statement. Furthermore, Zionists media and official sources were not able to show a photo of the F-35 warplane after the “bird collision”.

    We are not claiming anything, we are laying out events and how they happened, then leaving the conclusion to you; but we also don't believe in coincidences, not in the Middle East at least.

    As far as Syrian losses, as we mentioned and we doubt anyone was this specific when mentioning what was damaged, we don't feel ashamed of what happens, the Syrian Air Defenses and placed countermeasures completely foiled the Zionist's attack but a radar was damaged in the process, no less no more.

    We will get out more specific news on everything when its time comes.

    What makes the T2 station so difficult to capture? It seems strange that ISIS has placed impenetrable fortifications in T2 while neglecting Al mayadin.
