Syrian Arab Army obliterates strongest ISIS contingent in Euphrates Valley with Russian assistance

The Syrian Arab Army has fully defeated one of the strongest ISIS contingents remaining in Syria. The battle took places in the Raqqa governorate in a area of the Euphrates Valley that had been under ISIS control since 2013.

According to the Russian Defence Ministry,

“Amid the operation 800 terrorists, 13 tanks, 29 pickup trucks with high-caliber machine guns mounted on them, and mortars and artillery pieces totalling nine have been destroyed”.

RT further reports,

“According to the Russian ministry, the government forces involved in the operation are now advancing east along the river towards the Deir ez-Zor governorate. Its capital, the city of Deir ez-Zor, is controlled by the government but has been surrounded by rural IS-controlled areas for years. The Syrian army has been trying to break through the blockade for quite some time”.

Simultaneous to this, other divisions of the Syrian Arab Army made gains along the Sukhnah-Deir ez -Zor Road.

This brings the Syrian Arab Army closer to Deir ez-Zor city, the last major bastion of ISIS left in the country.

Now this is what an army with the conviction of being right fights like! They are defending their motherland from foreign invaders and have the moral upper ground. Our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan only have corporate greed to sustain them – and they don’t benefit from it.

Support our troops – bring them back home.

It must be a hard pill to swallow for the US & their NATO proxies not be be able to bomb the SAA on Syrian soil at will anymore, or at all for that matter. Russia finally clearly saw what needed to be done, which was to provide support (and cover) for SAA ground troops conducting their operations.

Shows the US & NATO are in fact cowards when they won’t attempt these immoral actions when knowing their planes have opposition.

Yes. Heroes against Barbarians. Russia should get film crews in there ASAP so that the Western MSM Hate Machine can’t whitewash the facts. And get an S400 in there as well… just in case.
