The Syrian Army and the country's popular forces, backed by Russian airstrikes, have continued their advance, inflicting heavy losses on the terrorist groups in the country’s key provinces, Iranian media wrote on Wednesday.

Over the past 24 hours the Syrian Air Force has attacked and destroyed the terrorists’ positions in Lattakia, Homs, Damascus, Deir Ezzur, Aleppo, Dara'a and Hama provinces, Fars news agency reported.

On Tuesday the government forces stormed a terrorist concentration center in Dara’a al-Balad leaving many militants dead and causing serious damage to their weapons and military equipment.

In Hama province, Syrian Army troops stormed a number of enemy strongholds, the agency reported, citing military sources in the area.

“Concentration centers of Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group near Atshan village in the northern part of Hama were massively attacked by the Syrian forces, leaving at least eight terrorists dead and wounding ten others," the sources said.

In Aleppo province, Syrian fighter jets pounded a number of terrorist gathering centers in the town of Manbaj in the eastern part of the region.

In the meantime, the Syrian Army's artillery hit the military positions of the terrorists in the village of Mansoura in the eastern part of the city of Aleppo, the agency reported.

Syrian government forces have recently been making rapid advances against the terrorists in several parts of the country.

The advances of the Syrian government forces against Daesh and other terrorist groups have been enhanced by the air cover provided by Russia, which began on September 30 at the request of the Damascus government.

    The advancements, the support of the furious Russian bear and the wahhabi rats fleeing in all directions has brought hope and people that was "liberated" to death by the death squads of Mullah Erdogan and the US porch-chimp-in-chief and then liberated back to life by the Syrian Arab Army, that would normally consider to migrate, has stayed and joined the army, the militias and the tribal forces.

    The tides has evidently turned.

    Mikhas I love you man you have been a stalwart throughout this retched campaign I put my hand up weeks ago that the end was close at hand by adding the unsustainable casualty rate inflicted on the enemy. Thanks Mikhas you are a true believer. Lets hope we can celebrate very soon to a great victory.

    Mikhas, the ENORMITY of what the US of NA has done....I still can't fathom the depth of those actions they took....
    With you, I salute again the brave SAA and the heroic Russian pilots and their Commander-in-Chief. Providence is watching and helping .
  • The SAA needs to quickly meet up with the Kurdish Peshmerga and seal the gap on the Turkish border so these terrorists cannot flee and regroup let alone leave open the opportunity for Turkey to move troops onto Syrian territory.

    Russian Army and Syrian Army must get into contact with citizens in towns villages and mountains
    The people living there can report terrorist whereabouts and the army can destroy them
    This is the best way to localize terrorists.Trust the citizens.Ofcourse they have to be pro russian and on the side of assad.

    My mind has been set on the rebuilding process for some time now. Russian engineers, contractors and builders have been busy, I bet, for sometime already working on blueprints, logistics and what kind of manual workforce it will take to renovate and rebuild along with Syrian 'city managers. Of course, if earlier articles indicate that Russian will get the lion's share of these contracts, will it also mean that there will be an extension of the sanctions against Turkey in place here? Will Turkey be further embarrassed, in Syria, by cutting out day laborers from this rebuilding? Let's hope so.
  • The final solution for the ME

    It would be economically beneficial for Russia to microchip, equip and then release to the eastern region of Syria the entire population of the Vladimir Central, with a promise of permanent residency and accommodation in KSA once the war is over. In return they must do what they do best.
  • Finish them. The end of this proxy war is near.

    Mikhas,
    Hi Comerade,
    You make great comments.
    You will know the Syrians are famous for fighting.
    So are the Russians, and that might be the mix of Viking blood as death is just a short trip to Vallalla where they fight all day and drink at night and make merry.
    The ragheads are absolutely no match for Russian special forces.
    We know that they have other rats working with them, right?.
