Victory in Syrian desert

 Victory in  Syrian desert, important political and economic achievements

Every day, the Syrian army and its allies achieve new victory against terrorism and its allies proving that it is the only force capable of uprooting terrorism. These victories have proved to the whole world that the Syrian Arab army and its allies are the only force capable of crushing terrorism despite of its direct and indirect supporters.

Army units in cooperation with the allies continued military operations against ISIS terrorists in the countryside of Palmyra in Homs city, establishing control over vast areas in the city and chasing down terrorists from the area.

 In a crucial achievement in Syria’s war on terrorism, the units of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies reached the Iraqi border, northeast of al-Tanf crossing, successfully realizing the goal of disrupting terrorist operations in Syria’s sprawling desert, in an important step on the way of breaking the terrorist siege on thousands of civilians in Deir Ezzor.

The main objective of the accelerated military operations in the eastern parts of the country is to eliminate terrorists in the Syrian Badia and then heading towards Deir Ezzor to break the siege imposed on the locals in the city.

The significance of this achievement becomes quite evident with a precise strategic reading of the geographical area which the Syrian army and its allies have established control over and the advance to the Syrian-Iraqi border, as the army units have managed through this success to prevent groups affiliated to the US-led coalition from advancing towards (Palmyra)-Deir Ezzor road, and thus aborting any possible attempt to disrupt the army’s ongoing operations towards Deir Ezzor, in addition to cutting off all supply routes of ISIS in the center of the Badia with the terrorist groups that have announced allegiance to the terror organization in the southern countryside of Daraa, especially the so-called “Khalid bin al-Walid Army”.

The Syrian army was able to advance on to 200 kilometers to prevent the so-called international coalition’s attempt to cut off Syria-Iraq road in al-Tanf area. The liberation of the phosphate mines of Khneifis and Sawwanah in the course of the military operations in the Syrian Badia was a milestone in the army’s advance,  showing the economic importance of this great achievement as these two facilities were added to the dozens of oil and gas wells in the Syrian Badia which have been back into production immediately after their liberation.

The military and economic importance of the victories of the Syrian Arab Army in the Syrian Badia are to be added to the strategic and political importance.

 The determinants of the military action of the Syrian army and its allies are drawn up exclusively by the General Command of the Syrian Arab Army and the “ridiculous” threats and warnings of the US-led coalition will not succeed in preventing the army units from rooting out ISIS terrorists from all Syrian areas.

The great achievements in the Syrian desert paved the way for important victories in the city of Deir Ezzor.  The Syrian Air Force launched a series of raids on sites and movements of ISIS terrorist organization in Deir Ezzor. The raids concentrated on command centers for ISIS to the east of Deir Ezzor Airport, resulting in the destruction of  many centers and the death and injury of scores of ISIS leaders. Several vehicles equipped with heavy machineguns and a number of ISIS terrorists were killed due to the airstrikes of Syrian army on ISIS movements to the south of the graveyards area.

The increasing pace of reconciliations and their expansion across Syrian areas wouldn’t have been possible without the achievements made on the ground by the Syrian Arab Army and supporting forces. The reconciliations are carried out over stages, and they will target more areas in various provinces including Damascus Countryside, Homs, and Hama where the Syrian Army is making progress, in addition to reconciliations in Quneitra and Daraa countryside.
