BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed militants launched a big offensive in the northern countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate this past weekend after several unsuccessful attempts to capture the key Tal Tamr District in northwestern Al-Hasakah.

Led by the so-called “Syrian National Army” (SNA), the Turkish-backed militants stormed the defenses of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) at the north flank of ‘Ayn ‘Issa.

According to a military source in the Al-Raqqa Governorate, the Turkish-backed militants managed to score a quick advance on Saturday after they captured some points north of ‘Ayn ‘Issa.

However, their success would be short lived, as the Syrian Arab Army and Syrian Democratic Forces regrouped to launch a swift counter-offensive to drive back the militants from the ‘Ayn ‘Issa internally displaced camp and small village of Saida.

The source told Al-Masdar News that the IDP camp and Saida are now “no-man’s land” as neither side controls any ground at these sites near ‘Ayn ‘Issa.

He would add that the Syrian Arab Army and Syrian Democratic Forces have reinforced their lines at ‘Ayn ‘Issa, but the Turkish Air Force drones continue to harass their troops with periodic strikes.

The civilians at the IDP camp have since been relocated to an area away from the lines so that the SAA and SDF can ensure their safety.

Guess what? Would Assad be a real politician rather than being the heir of a monarch who was not politically motivated, he’d have it EASY to have Bibi helping Syria, and IDF’s might too… Learning that Iran was facing a terrible drought, guess what Bibi did? He proposed to help Iran with Israeli cutting edge water technologies. As this wasn’t answered, he had a website in Farsi put up to help Iranian peasants to put in place DIY water-saving systems… Oh, yeah, there were 2 answers from Iran : one accusing Israel of stealing Iranian clouds, another thru proxies with… Read more »

Following the latest floods due to massive rainfall and despite all the damage to villages, all of major Iranian dams at least are full for several years, and anyway nobody needs a ressource-stealing parasite for any kind of condescending help. Like they would actually grant it in the ludicrous event that the Iranian tell them yes lol, only morons like you could believe these claims actually held water beyond the political charade intended to hurt and humiliate Iran (no pun intended).

That’s right. The drought is over. Underground Syrian spring flowing ist time in a 100 years. Also had a bumper crop this year despite CIA Goons torching them and Turk mercs looting the silos.
