A senior representative of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on condition of anonymity told Turkish news agency that the United States continues to actively strengthen its military presence in northern Syria.

“The US is setting up its military bases in the territories that were liberated from Daesh by our fighters during the fight against terrorism,” the source said.

He further said that earlier the US set up their bases in Kobani, Manbij, Hasakah, al-Shadadi and al-Hawl.

“Now they have set up a base in the region of the recently liberated Tabqa near the reservoir of the same name. This base will be actively used in autumn in the framework of the Raqqa operation and also in the Deir ez-Zor operation,” the source said.

As noted by the representative, the number of US military bases in Syria, taking into account the newly established base in Tabka, has increased to eight.  According to the source, in the future, the US intends to continue increasing its number of bases in the country.

ISIS fighter’s own head-cam films the dramatic moment he is blown to pieces

Published

on

Three ISIS jihadis filmed themselves being blown up by a Syrian tank. One fighter’s headcam caught the moment a round struck their armoured vehicle, ending their lives.

One fighter shouts: ‘Tank on the right side’, while another yells: ‘The tank, the tank, the tank is over there, over there, over there.’

As they lose sight of the tank, one fighter asks where it is before another jihadi replies: ‘Over there, the tank will bomb us.’ The fighters desperately plea for anti-tank units, shouting ‘follow us, follow us’ as one mans the gun on the top of the car.

There is then an enormous explosion as the jihadis get hit and wiped out.

Russian Airstrikes Destroy Nusra Front Attacking Military Police in Idlib

Published

on

The Russian Defense Ministry has released a video of Russian airstrikes that helped to check the US-initiated offensive by al-Nusra terrorists in Syria’s Idlib de-escalation zone and break the militants’ siege of a Russian military police unit encircled in the area.

The footage shows armed vehicles being ripped apart by missiles raining down on them by Russian strike fighters and helicopter gunships just as the Syrian Army launched a massive counterattack forcing the jihadists into a retreat.

The al-Nusra Front terrorists used artillery, tanks and infantry fighting vehicles during their offensive to the north and northeast of the city of Hama in the Idlib de-escalation zone penetrating Syrian army defenses to a depth of some 12 kilometers (8 miles).

A statement by the Russian General Staff said that the militants’ attack was “initiated by US secret services to stop the successful advance of government troops to the east of Deir ez-Zor.”
The Americans deny the charges.

A 29-person strong Russian military police unit was encircled and repelled the terrorists’ attacks for several hours fighting alongside members of an allied local tribe until Russian Spetsnaz and Syrian Special Ops units, backed by the Su-25 strike fighters, came to the rescue breaking the enemy siege.

The terrorist offensive has largely been stopped, leaving 850 militants dead and 11 tanks, four armored vehicles and other military hardware completely destroyed.

The Syrian Army, supported by Russian warplanes, launched a counterattack and has almost completely reclaimed its positions in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
