    Slowly but surely there is a decrease in the number of militants.

        The rest, if they did not die immediately from the differential pressure, are likely to simply die in agony.

      I categorically disagree that the number of militants may decrease at their expense. They are born and grow by orders of magnitude more than VKS destroy them, another thing is that the number of trained and funded USA has slightly decreased, but this is a temporary phenomenon. You can only win by undermining the US financial system. And for this you need something global, such as the explosion of Yolustone.

    Thanks for the new jokes. Oh yes...…. If someone does not understand. YPJ fighters teach Arab women near Deir ez-Zor to handle weapons. Tell us more about how "Kurds carry out mass arrests of civilians in their part of the province of Deir ez-Zor. SDF aggresses residents opposing the Kurdish occupation of these territories"

    The West Coalition later hit by alleged IS terrorist deployment points in the village of Al-Bukhatar.

    And try to guess three times - were the terrorists there or not? That's how they fight ...
