    I noticed in the morning the ТАСС announcement
    http://tass.ru/armiya-i-opk/2560564
    of the Russian Marines being rotated, which should finish until the end of this year; no numbers given, so I didn't post, but since now I saw pictures from Belbek ...
    officially https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sevastopol_International_Airport
    which I recall from the Spring of 2014 when Russians tricked me by changing the feed of a web-camera which I posted LOL!

    A significant victory the more big from a year for Iraq and Coalition, now operations go to N-W of Ramadi toward Hit and going up the Euphrates.

    Mosul close to the front can be also a big objective.

    No rest for the devil in anyway !


    Iraqi Security Forces hoist the Iraqi flag atop a government building in Ramadi. The Iraqis announced today that Iraqi Security Forces have retaken the city of ‪ Ramadi‬ from Daesh terrorists.

    Iraq Army officially declares victory in Ramadi, ISF raise Iraqi flag in the city

    And this improved ribbon bridge played an important role for retake Ramadi from the South

    Strange that it were insurgents and not terrorists that attacked civilians indiscriminately!

    They are buying their way to the negotiation table from which the other(?) members of the Congress of Terrorists Organizations will be excluded.

    I'm surprised Russia said it will consider a new Syrian government without Assad. Wonder what changed, too much American pressure?

    Check the news source... ...
    It is the malicious Reuters.

    Reuters as usual is lying again and again.

    Who is the unnamed diplomat quoted by Reuters ?

    It is the usual old replay of spewing Divide--and--Conquer poisonous tactics again.
