    ISIS being squeezed off the map. Over half their territory straddling the border with Lebanon has now been liberated.

    Well ISIS let alot of their spare manpower get surrounded so the SAA will have an easier time dealing with them now since alot of their guys are trapped in the pockets.

    That said most of the SAA is still fairly incompetent in a fight only a couple of their formations are worth a dam.

    It's also the fact ISIS just cannot support it's self like it did two years ago

    Not sure there are any demolished buildings here. ISIS tend to destroy temples and other places of pre-Islamic worship. They don't care much about "mundane" constructs like city walls and fortifications.

    Agree however that the Wahabbi goat-fuckers need to die. Quicker the better, and don't spare the screams.

    Whilst the majority of the SAA are, as you say, in many ways just making up the numbers they now have two years of Russian 'full fat' supplies and operational assistance under their belts. Plus, rather than having to fight in ISIS's main area of expertise, urban warfare, this is now a war of manoeuvre where logistics and air power reign supreme and where much of ISIS is now fighting with what they can carry or have prepositioned.

    You are in a better position than us to judge on this but it seems to me that the SAA and allies are using the time that the SDF are bogged down in Raqqa, to get rid of as much of the ISIS forces out in the open, as they try to move east back to prepared positions in the Euphrates valley, rather than a possibly politically motivated premature rush to Deir inti ISIS optimised territory.

    A bit of Russian's training them, and some tough lessons learnt and of course experience. I am sure at the end of all this the Syrian armed forces will be much better than they were before and will be better than other middle eastern armed forces which isn't that difficult really.

    There is a view out there held by some of those who believe that Israel/Saudi are behind ISIS that one of the side functions of ISIS is to seek out and destroy any archaeological sites, like those places of worship, that may contain ancient scripts that could cast light on what went on in the area 2000+ years ago.

    This is due to it not being in the interests of some to clarify and potentially destroy the myths that underpin the religions and states in the area. Now that, with the advent of the Internet, centralised control of history is breaking down in areas as diverse from what happened at the end of WW2 to ancient history all kinds of, at minimum embarrassing to those with vested interests in the status quo, facts are seeing the light of day.

    That, together with the increase in skill level in Hesbollah/Iranian forces/PMU, is making Israel/US twitch, hence the visit by Israel PM + Mossad head to Sochi today to see the 'Man who Matters' in today's ME.

    Good idea but a hell of a transport cost from the timber growing areas.

    They could have used a picture of a factory built house rather than an on site built house.

    This is the text from that link. Given the location where did ISIS appear from? Iraq?

    DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:00 P.M.) – On Wednesday, the Islamic State mobilized all available forces for a huge assault that saw jihadist belligerents plunge through the government frontline along the provincial border between Homs and Deir Ezzor.

    The offensive, spearheaded by a convoy of armored technicals and the remnants of the Islamic State’s elite Inghimasi militants, saw a desert fortification completely overwhelmed and most of the SAA garrison killed on the spot.

    With some government soldiers executed at point-blank range, the Islamic State also seized a number of BM-21 Grad rocket launchers which may be used against the SAA at a later point in time.

    According to Amaq Agency, the attack took place northeast of Al-Tanf, not far from the border with Iraq. The exact SAA death toll remains unbeknownst to Al-Masdar News.

    Meanwhile, the SAA is delivering a devastating blow to the Islamic State in central Syria, capturing around a dozen villages on a daily basis this month alone, thereby paving the way for the eventual liberation of Deir Ezzor city.
