Rumors are flying that Russia has dropped the 'Father of all bombs" in Syria. The FOAB which is a bigger version that the US's MOAB, is the biggest conventional bomb in the world with a blast of about 44 tons of TNT.

While there is no official confirmation of the drop, it would make sense since they have been basically using Syria as some sort of extended weaponry demonstration (no doubt trying to drum up weapons sales)

This latest report from South Front is a BOMB if proven to be true ...

US aircraft have evacuated 22 ISIS field commanders from Deir Ezzor to “safer regions” as government forces are advancing against the terrorist group in this strategic city, Russia’s Sputnik news agency reported on Thursday citing a military and diplomatic source. On August 26, a “US Air Force helicopter” reportedly evacuated 2 ISIS field commanders of “European origin” with members of their families from an area northwest of Deir Ezzor city. On August 28, US aircraft evacuated 20 ISIS field commanders and militants close to them from an area southeast of Deir Ezzor city to northern Syria. This was the recent in a series of reports about US airlift operations in Deir Ezzor province, which repeatedly appeared in 2016 and 2017. The US-led coalition has been accused in providing safe passage and indirect supplies (through so — called moderate rebels training programs) to the terrorist group. Some sources even accused the coalition of providing a direct support to ISIS in some cases.

Usually You Tube allows SF Syrian War reports but for some reason stopped today's . eta I just got a note from SF

On September 8, 2017, SouthFront’s war report video “Syrian War Report – September 8, 2017: US-led Coalition Rescues ISIS Commanders From Deir Ezzor?” (You can watch the deleted video here) was removed because it allegedly violated “YouTube Community Guidelines”. The video didn’t not include any graphic content, but it was flagged and deleted.

What are ISIS field commanders? If it's what to sounds like, we would we be taking them to safety? Aren't we on board with trying to get rid of ISIS?

Well, remember one rumoured Youtube video that nobody has actually seen isn't a very reliable source of news.


And if US aircraft did evacuate 22 ISIS field commanders, I'm pretty certain the CIA wouldn't have done it in the open where people could see it and they would have said to the press 'Oh yeah, those guys? Yeah they're ISIS commanders we're evacuating.'

So I'm saying this rumour is very false.

You make a good point, I wonder if Southfront is reliable? It could be just the fog of war bs. Now wonder if FOAB is real haha.

It's called Russian propaganda. Anyone that believes we airlifted out ISIS commanders is a butter. Maybe FSA commanders.

No dropping of any FOAB as it would have been noticed.
No collecting of any ISIS for crying out loud BS of the highest degree.
Who is creating this garbage News ? Sowing seeds of disinformation ?

The fact that you seem totally oblivious to how the difference between ISIS and FSA is nonexistent shows that you have no knowledge and therefore no credibility wrt the topic at hand...

Southfront is pretty damn on the level, that's why YouTube is f***ing with them!

WTF, people either don't know Russian propaganda when they see it or are purposely trying to propagate it.

Then there are the usuals who pretend to be all informed by it.

This thread is funny.
