Heavy clashes erupted after units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) observed an infiltration attempt by armed groups of the US-sponsored ISIS terrorists in the eastern countryside of Hama.
The SAA increased its presence in the eastern countryside of Hama, especially to the east of Salamiyah after deadly terrorist attacks by the Al Qaeda offshoot known as ISIS which operates from areas under the protection of the US illegal bases in the Syrian desert.
ISIS terrorists tried to sneak toward the Syrian Army outposts in the vicinity of Rahjan, about 50 kilometers to the northeast of the city of Salamiyah in the eastern Hama province.
SAA reinforcements rushed to the site while Russian airstrikes targeted the supply lines of the ISIS terrorists in the open Syrian desert which connects with Iraq in the east and Jordan in the south.
The clashes are ongoing at the time of this report.
Trump, not only maintained the number of US troops illegally sent to Syria by his predecessor Obama, he increased their numbers and assigned them new tasks of stealing Syrian oil, blocking the Damascus – Baghdad highway, protecting ISIS cells in their SUVs and 4 x 4 machine-gun mounted pickups from Syrian and Russian airstrikes, and even bombed Syrian army targets in a number of times to protect the Pentagon’s precious assets of radical ISIS and other Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists and the Kurdish separatists.
Al Rukban concentration camp run by ISIS affiliate Maghawir Thawra in the depth of the Syrian southeastern desert at the Iraqi – Syrian – Jordanian borders, and Al Hol concentration camp run by the Kurdish SDF separatist armed groups in the Hasakah eastern countryside, northeast of Syria, are used by the USA to hold thousands of Syrian civilians hostages to blackmail the Syrian state with them and as ISIS breeding farms to keep fueling the crisis and prolonging the Syrian people’s suffering.
