        Because the tactics have changed, you have noticed now they are trying to agree on the surrender of the militants, before they were only chopped to victory.

      The fact that Assad’s troops are actively squeezing American mercenaries is great.

      For the last quarter, the army surrendered only one city to Adra, or rather, there was no army at all. Now Adra is 80% released. In fact, this is the northeastern suburb of Damascus.

      Arab media: one of the leaders of ISIS Abu Umar Al-Shishani was killed in Syria

      On the eve, a number of Arab (primarily Lebanese) media disseminated information that a Chechen terrorist and one of the leaders of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), Abu Umar Al-Shishani, had been killed in northern Syria.

      According to these reports, Abu Umar was seriously injured on May 17 or 18 during the fighting in the Akerbat region of Hama province. From there he was taken to the hospital in Racca, where he died on May 20, 2014.

      Born, according to various sources, in Ingushetia or Georgia, the Kist Chechen Abu Umar Ash-Shishani has taken one of the leading positions in the ISIS hierarchy due to the high combat capability of his "brigade", the backbone of which are people from the Russian North Caucasus.

      Islamist sources have not yet confirmed the death of their leader. Abu Umar Al-Shishani has already been "killed" twice (including the "Military Observer" wrote about this). The first time his death was reported in February 2013, the second - at the end of September of the same year. Each time it turned out that the information about the death of the Chechen field commander did not correspond to reality.

      Yes, in the course of the United States still frog up to Syria, and Turkey does not send its mercenaries to fight. Apparently, after all, the support of Russia and China is forcing Syrian oppositionists to put in their pants.

        In Turkey, other problems drew up; they were not up to Syria. Especially recently.

        In Qatar, they switched to Iraq - where ISIS already controls 1 / 3 countries, although it is a deserted west, but also feels confident in 12 miles from Baghdad and holds parades. apostates crucifies in squares.

        SA, UAE and Bahrain - blocked the supply of oxygen against the background of graters with Qatar, which Alah Babahs are true fighters, and which are unworthy of their help.

        That’s broken. ISIS retreated to Raqqa and crossed the main forces into Iraq. Many radicals who held the northern and eastern fronts withdrew from ISIS. In the South, as a result of the transfer of basic resources from Syria to Iraq, Qatar, there are fewer reinforcements of mercenaries and weapons in Daraa. SSA is being supplied to the North - but sluggishly and the influx of reinforcements has sharply decreased. This is where the fracture comes from. However, while in Aleppo they are still strong.

        Here, the main thing is that the ISIS is not breaking the IRAQ right now. And everything is bad there, theirs WHO comes out at times worse than even the ATO Avakov with Turichnov. Yes, and ISIS is not Strelkov, there are all the prisoners at once at the expense of "Takbir".

      I, too, am glad that Assad is HOLDING AND DOES NOT GIVE UP .... and, with limited capabilities, still defeats the enemy.

      But let's look at the root .. first of all, it’s clear that the flow of support to the militants has decreased from the WEST and the SAUDITS, it seems to them that it is too dangerous to flirt with the radical forces and here UKRAINE with its crisis has greatly affected the balance of power.

      Although I think the West will still try to overthrow ASAD in any way.

    There are various options for peace, but the fact that the Syrians are liberating the cities is a fact, an example for New Russia. Well done!

    In Syria, the opposition (what the hell is the opposition, mercenaries from around the world) began clashes between themselves over the possession of oil fields, even a representative of Washington came with a peacekeeping mission. Assad is only on hand.

So maybe there is already no one to send? how many of these freaks have already been buried in the ground

    More modern weapons should be sent to Syria (after all, the States and Turkey are not shy about arming militants - mercenaries !!) And more for urban battles, to modernize tanks and infantry fighting vehicles !!!

    Faster in Syria, the war would end and faster in Syria would recover from the economic abyss. And it’s easier for us and Syria will get stronger more, and this is our most prominent ally in the Middle East.
    Right now in Libya, they can even destroy the radicals and more or less the world will recover, although there the pro-American leader is at the head, but at least some and with whom you can then negotiate.

      It was not for this that they began to finish quickly. Where NATO has trodden down, there will never be peace. Afghanistan, Iraq, now Ukraine. Unstable Yugoslavia is in stock, although it was the former with the same Romania. It is easier for the main cheater to change the rules during the game on the headstock. Those who disagree on a helicopter and at sea, in a noose or cuttings in the anus to death. NATO is the shield and sword of the world oligarchy. They need vital instability in the world. In troubled waters ... you know what.
