Finally it seems (as the White House assures, just in time for the US election on Nov 8th), the US ‘Coalition’ is leading an operation, along with Iraqi Security Forces and Kurshish Peshmerga militias to take back Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul – from ISIS.
Last week, 21WIRE’s Patrick Henningsen warned of a possible US-Saudi plan to help repatriate as many as 9,000 ISIS militants fleeing Mosul, Iraq – into Syria to help with Washington and Riyadh’s aspirations of ‘regime change’ in Damascus.
No doubt, both Syria and Russia are expecting this possibility, and have since established key way stations to help intercept Washington’s shadow army of Takfiri militants….
150 Ahrar al-Sham members evacuated from Bustan Al-Qasir Neighborhood of Aleppo city under the deal with Moscow and Damascus. There are no doubts that this incident will weaken the terrorists’ positions in the area and create a precedent for further withdrawal of militants from the city.
Over 30 ISIS terrorists were killed in air strikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Arab Air Force in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor on October 18.

We recall, over dozen of villages have been liberated in the Mosul countryside since the start of the battle for this strategic city by the Iraqi forces, supported by the US-led coalition. 5,000 soldiers of the Special Forces, mainly American, support the Iraqi Security Forces, the PMU and the Kurdish Peshmerga in the ongoing operation on the ground.
The modern course of events shows that ISIS is not going to conduct massive counter-attacks if the Iraqi forces have not reached Mosul. The main clashes will likely take place during the storm of the city itself.
Experts argue Washington is using this time to allow ISIS terrorists redeploy from Iraq to Syria where the terrorists would use fresh reinforcements to intensify operations against the Syrian government in the provinces Deir Ezzor and Homs…
