I.S. advances in Homs province , captures the town of Maheen


Islamic State fighters drove Syrian government forces from a western town on Sunday, a monitoring group reported, as fighting escalated despite a flurry of diplomatic activity and talks between regional rivals.

Syrian parties to the multi-sided conflict said they saw no end to fighting between rebels and the government despite talks in Vienna on Friday that included Iran for the first time.

Iran’s supreme leader meanwhile said elections should be held to end the war, echoing a proposal by Russia that has been dismissed by President Bashar al-Assad’s opponents as a ruse by his allies to keep him in power.

It all underlines the intractable state of the four-year-long war that has killed 250,000 people and driven more than half the population from their homes, causing a refugee crisis in neighbouring states and Europe.

Talks between world powers in Vienna on Friday adjourned with calls for a nationwide ceasefire but key differences remained between rivals backing opposing sides.

The war has entered an even more violent phase in the month since Russia began air strikes in support of Assad. Differences over his future remain the main obstacle in the way of diplomatic efforts.

While the United States and Russia back rival sides in the war between the government and rebels in western Syria, both are also waging separate campaigns against the Islamic State group that controls wide areas of the east and the north.

Islamic State, which is separately fighting both the Syrian army and rebels in western Syria, has launched several attacks on government-held areas since Damascus launched a new offensive against it east of Aleppo, backed by Russian air strikes.

In a fierce assault that began by detonating two suicide car bombs, Islamic State militants took the town of Maheen in the southwest of Homs province from government forces, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

Some 50 fighters on the government side were killed or wounded, and clashes raged afterwards on the outskirts of a mostly Christian town nearby, Sadad, it said.

Islamic State issued a statement claiming the advance, which brought it within 20 km (13 miles) of the north-south highway linking Damascus to Syria’s other main cities Homs, Hama and Aleppo. Syrian state media made no mention of the attack.

The Observatory’s Rami Abdulrahman said the attack might have been a response to pressures the group is under elsewhere.

On the other side of Syria in the northeastern province of Hasaka, Islamic State is facing a new offensive launched by a recently formed U.S.-backed rebel alliance.

The Observatory reported fierce fighting between the rebel alliance, including the Kurdish YPG militia, and Islamic State fighters in the area of al-Houl near the Iraqi border.

The United States says it will step up its fight against Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, having decided to station special forces in Syria to support rebels fighting the jihadists, and to position more U.S. jets in Turkey and expand air strikes.

Air strikes by Turkish and U.S. aircraft in Syria on Saturday killed more than 50 Islamic State militants, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency said on Sunday.


Most of the recent attacks by the Syrian army, which is backed by Russian air strikes and allied fighters from Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah, have focused on insurgent groups other than Islamic State.

Several Western military officers attending a security conference this week in Bahrain said that before any political progress can be made, and ahead of new international talks set for within two weeks, rebels and government forces will both look to make gains on the ground and increase their leverage.

A Syrian army source said that Saudi Arabia and Turkey’s continued support for rebels meant battles would not stop.

“The battle is still a long one. All the time support does not stop to the terrorists from regional states, at the forefront of them Saudi Arabia and Turkey,” he said. Syria’s government refers to all rebels fighting it as terrorists.

A prominent rebel leader meanwhile said talks in Vienna on Friday had borne no fruit.

“If Russian-Iranian stubbornness continues, the situation will head toward escalation,” warned Bashar al-Zoubi, head of the political office of the Yarmouk Army, a rebel group operating under the banner of the moderate Free Syrian Army.

The rebels are hoping that regional states including Saudi Arabia and Turkey will increase military support to them.

Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir suggested repeatedly in the past week that support to the Syrian opposition would intensify in the face of Tehran and Moscow shoring up Assad.

At the rare regional talks on security in Manama, he said Riyadh was considering intensifying support to moderate Syrian rebels by providing them with “more lethal weapons”, but gave no further details.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in comments reported by Iranian state TV, criticised foreign powers that arm and fund Syrian opposition fighters.

“The solution to the Syrian question is elections, and for this it is necessary to stop military and financial aid to the opposition,” state media outlets quoted Khamenei as saying.

      Sure Zabada let me quit my freedom in the US so i can be there to pay Jizza. come on what’s all this nonsense acting like you are in 200 B.C. i can understand if someone wants to create values and live under them. but for them everything has to do with killings and punishing anyone severely for minor offenses. This is not living and i don’t care how you glamorize it. Women are sent to hospital because these animals have not seen one. these are their wives and they are raping them. why not take your time have a glass of wine and chill under a palm tree. lol – Thanks Zabada you can go there if you like i am staying in the good ole U.S.A

      1. Pay Jizyah in Arab world not in USA..also the muslims have to pay tax in USA.It is fair!!!!There are no Jizyah at Saddam time ..your USA who raped Iraq and planted Jizyah in Iraq now.

        1. nagy_michael2 Avatar

          We get freedom and good roads and electricity and good food. We also get money when we loose our jobs. We get money when we retire also. Does ISIS offers 401K plan for those Christians who are pay Jizyah? do they pay them when they loose their jobs? My USA was welcome by many Iraqies even though i was against the war..
          Can you beat that? i think not..

          1. At the past there many Christian teachers..doctors..and ect..they live peacefully in Muslims world..at the times of Saddam..Iraq even have Christian minister.It is Christians force.USA..who destroy them all.

            Sorry Hind, I must disagree with you on this one. Saddam was just as bad. If not worse. Just ask the Kurds and Shiites. I know what your about the Christians however an innocent person is an innocent person. And Saddam the piece of shit killed many thousands of innocent people. Even Christians.

          6. you and your America moron also killing Iraqis for regime change.,they even worse..USA who started the war.so Iraqis have to defend them selves. .Go and fight isis instead of hating them..no body cant,t stand over them..even you.How many soldiers you have…?.What a moron you are…

          7. And let me guess. Assad is an angel.

          9. nagy_michael2 Avatar

            we are talking about ISIS first not Saddam but also he was a dictator. He took out kurds and shiite villages. you keep jumping from Saddam to ISIS. we are talking strictly about these morons friends of yours called ISIS. When we pay taxes in the US we expect something in return. like building roads, getting again money when we needed it. i am happy and free to go where i want here and go around as i please. when ISIS are throwing children off buildings that’s plain sick and disgusting and nothing short of being devil worshipers.

          10. “getting again money when we needed it.”

            Try telling that to these Americans!
            “On a typical night in 2014, more than 578,000 Americans were homeless. Nearly 2.5 million children in America experienced homelessness in 2013. That’s one in 30 children. In urban communities, people experience homelessness for an average of eight months.”


          11. ” i am happy and free to go where i want here and go around as i please”

          15. I wonder how good your roads would be if countries were dropping bombs and missiles on them like USA is doing to Middle eastern countries. Idiot
            And maybe you have 401k plans coz the USA steals everybody else’s resources.
            Defending terrorists just like zabada. Bravo big boy.
