BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – A large number of Iraqi paramilitary personnel have joined the imperative offensive to liberate the Islamic State (ISIS) stronghold of Albukamal, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

Fighting alongside the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Liwaa Fatemiyoun (Afghani-Iranian paramilitary), Hezbollah and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the Iraqi fighters crossed over the Syrian border recently to participate in the Albukamal offensive.

The Iraqi fighters are comprised of Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Popular Mobilization Units) personnel that have taken part in several offensives inside the Al-Anbar, Nineveh, and Salaheddine governorates.

These Hashd Al-Sha’abi fighters will play an integral part in the upcoming battle to take Albukamal, as they have a lot of experience fighting the Islamic State terrorists in the desert.

But when, someone tell me when the great final battle began to take and reconquer that place of such strategic value? It seems that nobody cares that the American servants of the SDF fight and advance day and night towards the same objective and without bragging so much about. Be very careful about dear SAA and allies, to not repeat the same mistakes made in the previous arrangement to the capture and reconquest of the Omar field oil whith a lot of noise and wait and nothing more that shame and failure at the end . Please more action and… Read more »

From the maps provided from the past three weeks by this same news outlet it seems the Syrian government forces are standing put and not advancing at all, from both al-Mayadin and the T2 pumping station area.
