    The Syrian Army claimed on Tuesday that the US and Saudi Arabia are allowing Daesh terrorists passage into Syria from Mosul.

    According to the army's statement released via state media, the US-led coalition plans to entail securing roads and safe passages into Syria to allow the terrorists consolidate their presence and create "new battleground realities" in eastern Syria.

    "Any attempt to cross the border is an attack on the sovereignty of Syria… and would be dealt with all forces available," the  statement said.

    On October 17, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the start of the military operation to retake Iraqi Mosul from the militants from Daesh terrorist group.

    According to local media, about 30,000 Iraqi soldiers and 4,000 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are taking part in the operation, backed by air strikes carried out by the US-led international coalition.

      Well, you Syrian forces know about it, if you don't deal with it as they are crossing the border into Syria, it is your fault. So bomb the bastards as they move with their Us and Saudi escorts into Syria, bomb the fucking US and Saudis too.,if they are still alive, burn them on a spit.

      Plan A didn't work thanks to Russia so plan B might be to try and create another Afghanistan in Syria endless war . Except Russia is stronger now with Putin in charge and smarter than the old communist USSR and Syria has a much better standing army than Afghanistan did and there is help from Iran and possibly Iraq and Turkey so think it will be much harder for the U.S. To create another Afghanistan in Syria

      elsa.zardinielsa.zardini, the real Ha Ha at one Alejandro Riquelme from Vancouver, British Columbia on the facebook side. What a f**l he is! He talks about a "first world." Just pure unwitting stupidity, ignorantly shamelessly. His comments will make you sick.

      The Iranian (and perhaps Turkish) proxy armies must encircle Mosul from the western sides. Then no Daesh will come out.

      drblack, I was not replying to you. It was an independent comment from yours (Note it does not say "in reply to...."). Rather I was talking about a comment by a p'oster "Baptista de Barros", here in this article, where it says "Comment via Facebook".

      elsa.zardini, he knows... You don't have to worry, we're in the same camp. The Iskanders and S300's are on our side.

      drblack, Are you out of your mind? Of course you replied to me (just look comments here) while, in fact, my comment "Ha! Ha!..." was not adressed to you.

      Dr Black, you know we're both intelligently well informed truthfully here on Sputnik news. I hope sooner than later the dragon be snared by the pike of St. George!!

      Gentle Joe, Right on what? If he has reading comprehension, and keeps insisting on his calumny, then he can't comment here. This is a serious site.
    • Gentle Eagle
      Dr Black, I'm certain in no small terms your estimations are reasonably sound. It's a feasible analysis.
    • Gentle Eaglein reply toelsa.zardini(Show commentHide comment)
      Leave it at that my dear Elsa.Zardini. Let sleeping dogs lie. Tables can be turned in no time at all, where the aggressor becomes the victim of their own aggression. I clearly understand you, and doesn't think for a moment that Dr Black intends any offense to you.
    • Gentle Eagle
      You are right Dr Black, I savour the well thought out and insightful links you share here.
