Nevertheless the SAA’s 5th Legion, 11th Division, 18th Division and National Defence Forces – assisted by several paramilitary contingents – continue to win terrain in tit-for-tat advances against ISIS militants on several flanks surrounding the vulnerable Palmyra bulge.

  1. Losing 27 solders is a big loss , also bad leadership from the army you should never lose as many troops the way they did,hate hearing or reading about Isis killing and winning really hate Isis with a passion poor soldier’s!!!!!!

  2. I don’t want to see pictures of dead SAA, I want to see pictures of dead ISIS, al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda, etc.
    This also shows the follow of the SAA taking prisoners. They shouldn’t waste their time, kill all the rebels and terrorists as much as they can.

  3. This is a war and sometimes something goes wrong, may be was an ambush. Anyway it is easy to talk about “bad leadership”, staying in a safe room, sitting on an armchair. What is for sure is that the momentum is favorable to SAA, whatever Isis can say.
    Honor to the fallen!
