    Tiger force heading towards al-Kom and then to al-Taibah which appears to be at present the half way point between the Tigers and the 5th Corps. Meanwhile the 5th Corps are reporting they are advancing north from Sukhnah towards Tibah. Not sure but possibly the same location?? A map yesterday showed the two forces being 41 kms apart along that route.

    Very low, ISIS cannot spare manpower for that right now and at this point they will never be able to for that objective. Without giving up other areas in return.
    What if Al qaeda and ISIS work together like they did when they cut off the salamiyah ithriya highway before?

    It's actually not that one but that of another "rebel" army...the NAF. Very similar indeed to the Confederate flag!

    No, He is ANNA reporter not "advisor", Oleg Blohin. She is reporter for Syrian TV not ANNA...

    Thanks for the clarification.

    NOTE: hopefully he has Press written across his back or something because anyone coming face to face would assume he was military.

    Trust me, I look every bit of my age which is a few days closer to twitching, drooling and senility than that young lad. I will say, though, that my wife looks about the age of the lass. She ain't, but she looks it.

    Downed SyAAF Mig-23bn not Mig-21 as first thought pilot is alive and captured by Jaysh Usud al-Sharqiya? but, from the latest picture, he seems to be being looked after.

    interesting case , if the US-led collation hands over the pilot , that will mean that Ali Fahed is with SDF , and Ali case is all on SDF

    Nor really war related but an example of the stupidity of trying to beat a train at a railway crossing. The now late director of a Tartus cement factory. Lots of potential soldiers there Smile

    Airbag versus engine buffer, I am sure that isn't in the car manufacturers tests.

    Not sure what to think about this:

    https://twitter.com/SyriaWarReports/status/897451507036987396

    Checked the Syrian twitter brigade...no confimation so it's hopefully just bullshyte. But severes IS attacks out of pure desperation can be expected.

    A view as to what happens in Raqqa after the event

    Ilham Ahmed, the co-president of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), told Arab tribes in a meeting on Sunday that the Syrian government will not return to areas liberated by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) such as Raqqa.
