    That arguably is the most straightforward bit, the part the SAA could cut off, now done. Now hopefully the rest, following on from the US announcement and silence from Israel, might see sense.

    One of Shabab al-Sunnah ammo depots, many others were captured by the SAA, all ammo boxes are still sealed, the group didn't fire a single bullet apparently, and they have been releasing threats over the last month claiming they will do this and that to the SAA in southern Syria

    The so called "Shabab al-Sunnah" group who has been threatening the SAA for the last four weeks was the first to run away in eastern Daraa leaving all of its ammo and weapons behind

    The battle of south Syria will be divide in two parts: the first part (Suweida/east Daraa) will continue without obstacles from players involved (#USA and #Israel).
    The 2d part is still observing complications (the one including #ISIS - Jaish Khaled Bin al-Waleed) in #Quneitra.
    2 replies 39 retweets 46 likes

    The first part (Suweida/east Daraa) is aiming to open the #Damascus-#Amman road at Naseeb crossing. This will give a fresh air to the economy of both #Syria and #Jordan. The battle is expected to end in less than 2 months.

    For the second part on the Israeli borders, #USA said it clearly is shall not pull out of al-Tanf today, tomorrow or in the near future. The Israeli bombing last night close to #Damascus airport is due to the second part of the ops in south #Syria.

    US-Led Coalition Evacuates Two Daesh Commanders From Syria's Hasakah


    Daesh terrorists have largely been defeated in Syria by government forces, with direct military assistance from Russia, though the group maintains a presence east of the Euphrates river in the provinces of Deir ez-Zour and al-Hasakah, deep inside territory of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF.)

    The US-led coalition evacuated two Daesh commanders from the al-Hasakah Governorate near the Syria-Iraq border on Monday, according to reports by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), citing its informed civilian sources in the area.

    READ MORE: Ex-Congressman: US Didn't Defeat Terrorists in Syria – Russia and Assad Did

    Similar Daesh evacuations by the US-led coalition have been reported on several occasions in recent months.

    With regard to this latest incident, SANA’s sources said they were evacuated without any clashes and the operation was carried out with assistance from US-backed ground forces, without elaborating.

    The senior Daesh terrorists were subsequently transported by helicopter to an airbase in the town of al-Shaddadi. In late 2017, the US set up an airbase in the town, in close proximity to the al-Shaddadi oil fields.

    Daesh remains in control of a number of oil fields and other settlements in al-Hasakah, surrounded by US-backed SDF forces.

    https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201806261065790256-us-coalition-daesh-evacuation/

    ---

    This is not a first such report. There were numerous occasions of USrael axis directly saving their ISIS stooges or being their airforce in critical moments both in Syria and Iraq, just like with Al-Qaeda aka Nusra aka HTS etc. Most of those were reported by Iraqi, Syrian and Iranian military elements as well as eyewitness civilians.
    What's more, they order ISIS to redeploy from certain area so that the SDF could swiftly "liberate" it after a few video propaganda stunts of firing a few bullets and RPGs on supposed ISIS targets. The best example of this happened in areas along Euphrates river during the SDF/SAA race to Al-Bukamal. The difference was that SAA/allies actually had to fight ISIS while SDF had to record videos. So a final wake up call for those who still buy nonsense fairy tale that ISIS is or ever was "independent terrorist organization" pushing its own agenda and not doing exactly what US/Israel gang tells them to...

    Breaking: Syrian Army seizes two more towns in east Daraa


    Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian military advanced from recently captured Nahitah and Sama Al-Hadeitat to attack the two towns of Maliha Al-Gharbiyah and Maliha Al-Sharqiyah.

    A short battle would breakout after the Syrian Army moved from Sama Al-Hadeidat and it would end with their forces imposing full control over Maliha Al-Gharbiyah and Maliha Al-Sharqiyah.

    As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army now finds themselves on the outskirts of the rebel stronghold of Al-Hirak, which is the largest town in east Daraa.

    In addition to reaching Al-Hirak, the Syrian Arab Army is now at the Brigade 52 Base, which they lost to the rebel forces in early 2015.

    Once we refused and Isreal to support them surrender was the logical choice. I must admit I thought they would choose the fight until we can not fight anymore option.

    Some of those rebels actually have the ability of critical thinking shocking.

    Still the only what if factor with Daraa was Isreal once it was clear they would keep out of it, it was well known this battle would go easy enough for what it is.

    The problem for the SAA now is

    Idlib means dealing with turks and the kurds well our guys.

    That's a whole another ball game.

    "IN VIDEOS: GOVERNMENT FORCES’ OPERATION AGAINST MILITANTS IN SOUTHERN SYRIA."


    "Government forces are making rapid gainst against militant groups in the southern Syrian province of Daraa. They have liberated a large number of villages and forced a limited number of militants to accept a reconciliation agreement. Clashes have also started inside the city of Daraa."

    Although rebels had very strong arguments against Assad's regime, their stupidity and fueled extremism finished off their chance to win. Rebels have lost. And they will suffer the consequences of their stupidity. This does not chance the fact about Assad's recklessness tough. (Some rebels have played the same role, unfortunately)

    Turkish concern is and always was to keep seperatist Kurds under the radar, and not letting them gain power. Americans know this, as well as Russians. After Daraa, next target will be Idlib, and I am pretty sure Turkey will not bother herself with protecting it. But under one condition, will aggressors offer something which will make Turks satisfied? That is the question.

    Basically, what I mean is if Assad is determined to capture all of Syrian lands, then it is satisfying. But if he fights against Turks but remains silent against Americans then it is problem.

    While most of mainstream (western) media is not officially state owned, they are the mouthpieces of the those governments nevertheless. Sure, they add a bit of flavor here and there to spice things up and sound legitimate to an untrained eye, but just follow the money flow, the key people and the shared basic narrative. Independent and objective media barely exists, if even at all.

    Bashar al-Assad is portrayed as this madman that enjoys killing and torturing people for fun just to get himself into more trouble while in reality he is a pretty decent guy, an opthamologist doctor that was actually pretty weak as a leader comparing to his father. He wasn't even supposed to be a successor of Hafez al-Assad btw, but after the death of his older brother Bassel al-Assad it turned out that way. If Bassel was still alive today, instead of Bashar, we'd be hearing a rhetoric that Bassel is an animal that kills "peaceful protesters", barrel bombs hospitals and gases people for fun. At the start of this fake revolution I thought Bashar won't last very long because he didn't react decisively right away (somewhat like Yanukovych that got deposed in a violent coup and barely made it alive a few years after war on Syria started). However Bashar did adapt in time and had worthy allies so he's still there.

    This fake revolution is an obvious western (US/Israel + their Arab satellite states + Turkey + NATO) war against sovereign anti-Israel Syria, so what I wrote in the correction of your post is not parroting some state propaganda but rather what actually happened.

    Update:A new agreement held between Assad regime & #YPG on the management of oil facilities in #Hasakah through the formation of a special committee from both sides.
    Assad regime receives 65% of the oil revenues while PYD receives 35%.

    Note: Interesting if proven to be true. They have been negotiating which is positive in itself.
