    That would be beyond stupid if they try.

    Even if they make a small corridor that's all flat ground they are trying to seize. Meaning Ruskies will have a field day with air strikes. Considering how close they are to the air base also, the air raids would be quick.

    I assume the Syrians expected this, I did.

    So they should be fine well you know unless the NDF shows it's incompetence again which well wouldn't be shocking.

    The rat wants Iran out of Syria - the sky is blue, water is wet..... Wondering what Putin is willing to give to this clown more than what's already been given - carte blanche freedom to bomb Syria as long as Russians aren't in the way. Next thing you know Jordan will be asking for in on the fun as well.... if they manage to fly something in the sky.

    Bit of an unnecessary comment that one. Jordan is one of only three countries (from memory) that has publicly lost a pilot and aircraft in this saga.

    Not quite sure what the significance of the 60km radius is but interesting.

    I predicted a few weeks back that there is a real threat of ISIS cutting off the Ithriya Salamiyah road with HTS assistance. My predictions came true but I didn't know this narrow stretch of land is easily defendable due to it being flat, so I guess we can all have a sigh of relief for now.

    One more underground base captured, this one in first pocket.



    here
    http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=34.828812&lon=37.685616&z=14&m=b&search=Huwaysis





    Before the assault on Huwaysis ISIS Hunters took under control several strategic IS strongholds located to the southeast from the city. The most important and the most arduous was a fortified stronghold in the area of height 863. Right before the battle commander of terrorist fled from the position on the motorcycle leaving his fighters on their own. Despite the heavy resistance of the remaining, Hunters managed to take the stronghold without any losses. When the Hunters eliminated all the IS terrorists and took their position, they found perfectly fortified bunker craved into the mountain. It has a spacious corridor, two large rooms, two exits and primitive system of ventilation. Here terrorists sheltered from artillery barrages and bombardments, cooked food, rested. Inside there was a huge library of IS propaganda materials and Wahhabi books printed in Kuwait. Moreover, there was a huge amount of drugs. The way this stronghold looks suggests that it was built by professional builders with involvement of slave labor. It is obvious that it was meant to become a fortress for long-term defense, and that terrorists would not just leave. None of fortified strongholds would help ISIS mercenaries resist the onslaught of hunters.

    This asshole knows that Iran is not going anywhere, this mother fucker is just throwing a sissy fit. Terrorists have been cleared from the Lebanon border, freeing up Hezbollah from that front and as slowly terrorists are killed, this asshole and his piece of shit country that has caused so much pain, will have to live with it. And if this clown tries something, he knows he will be fucked.

    Putin will not give this asshole anything, he knows that he has his foot on this assholes throat with Hezbollah. This is the only way to deal with these asshole countries that support terrorism, have your foot on their throats, Hezbollah on the Jews in Israel, Houthis on Wahhabi's cocksuckers in Saudi Arabia, if China really wanted to bring pain to the US, than China can support the Taliban(give Taliban advanced weapons and turn this into a nightmare for the assholes in US.)

    Word is, Iran is the second coming of Satan, or so they're whispering at the U.S. They're doing the same thing with Putin, in hopes he bites the bait. The american bait is framed as the impending loss of allies in the region for America as the Shiite crescent will have a domino effect and will eventually swallow all their vassal monarchies in the M.E (S.A, U.A.E, Jordan etc etc). The Russian bait is a bit different, less powerful but pretty much with the goal of sowing doubt and distrust - that is, disclosing Iran's dirty laundry in its efforts to destabilize its enemies (well of course Iran is engaged in dirty shit?). Anyway given such danger, Israel is "prepared to preemptively strike" if things "get too far" = WAR! Thus Russia and the U.S must contain Iran, for the sake of stability or Israel will, in a messy way. They hope that Russian support for Iran weakens and that the U.S continues to pressure Iran with sanctions and the regime change putsch = perfect cornering of Iran on the world stage = happy Israel with once again no significant threat to their ways.

    The real petty for humanity is not Iran with regional ambitions (to be expected) but a small rogue state of 10 million, with at least 70 nukes threatening anyone with WAR. Don't have to mention the nukes to know what's at stake as well if you so happen to kick Israel's shit so deep that, to avoid catastrophic collapse, turn to their nukes for a "fuck all" salvo. Only the collapse of its patron, the U.S, will allow the world to put microscopic lenses on Israel to come clean, change or collapse in the desert alone.

    "Earlier this month, the SAA re-deployed many units of the Tiger Forces and Tribal Forces from the southern Raqqa countryside central Syria in order to conduct a large encirclement operation that ended earlier this week. This was one of the key reasons behind the ISIS success near Ghanem al-Alli."


    https://southfront.org/syrian-war-report-august-25-2017-large-isis-counter-attack-in-southern-raqqah/




    "SDF PREPARES TO LAUNCH ADVANCE ON DEIR EZZOR – REPORTS."


    This is very dangerous, Syria really needs Deir ez-Zor to rebuild because of it's oil. I don't know what the SAA and Allies are doing, they really need to get all the Forces they can and go for Deir ez-Zor from all directions.

    Whilst there will be US pressure to go for Deir much of the SDF is bogged down in Raqqa and I doubt that there is much enthusiasm for what will be lots of death at the hands of ISIS wanting to die, taking as many 'non believers' with them as possible.

    Further west it still looks like the SAA are carefully sorting things out before they make that  dangerous trip to Deir.

    Anyway, from your link, my highlights. It doesn't look like its going down soon

    The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are preparing to launch a military operation against ISIS in the province of Deir Ezzor, according to media speculations and reports by pro-SDF activists.

    The SDF could launch the military operation “within several weeks” aimd the ongoing fighting for the city of Raqqah, Reuters reported citing, Ahmed Abu Khawla, head of the Deir Ezzor military council.

    There are no such air defense systems in the Euphrates Shield region. There are only Stinger systems mounted on M113's.
