    That is up route 45 from T4 into the backdoor of ‘Uqayrbat. That last mountain would be just south of the "45" number.

    And as before the SAA will pull back well inflecting causalities on their attackers until they run out of steam and then ...



    NOTE: it was reported earlier that ISIS had reinforced their forces in the area with an additional 500 men plus heavy equipment.

    It is not easy to tell, but it looks like the SAA has more resources to grind down Daesh even after being exhausted by years of military
    losses. By the same token, Daesh seems to have depleted the jihadi pool. This is probably not too surprising because most jihadis
    appear to be nothing more than mercenaries and once the Gulf state and Saudi money flow was reduced, the show was over.

    As quoted from news source


    "Some fifty-six Syrian Army soldiers who went missing in the midst of a huge ISIS offensive throughout southeastern Raqqa Governorate about four days ago have arrived, interestingly enough, at a large army base in Hasakah Governorate.

    These army soldiers had been routed during the initial shock phase of a surprise offensive by seasoned ISIS forces in southeast Raqqa.

    Separated from their units, they made their way towards lines of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who then transported them to a large Syrian Army base south of the city of Qamishli in Hasakah Governorate.

    Now back in service with the Syrian Army, the troops are to be airlifted to Damascus after which they will be re-assigned duties."

    IS and its operations are full of Nazi Germany vibes, circa 1944.
    Useless, futile operations while still being on the run at all fronts.

    The'Nimr'Tiger  @Souria4Syrians  3 hours ago


    Syrian Army liberated villages in the red circle, still unclear which direction they advanced from. ISIS sent forces to halt it's collapse

    The'Nimr'Tiger @Souria4Syrians 4h4 hours ago


    Syrian Army liberated some points near Panorama in Deir Ezzor

    SAA in Deir Ezzor seems to be expanding thier turf, thus paving the way to their quicker salvation and end of the siege.

    Side effect of reclaiming the border with Lebanon. At that height an AD radar would have a really useful range. Good spot for an outpost of the integrated SyAF/RuAF AD system, maybe even some revenge for the AN/TPY-2 radar near Malatya in Turkey (see link at bottom).

    Four posts.

    1-controlling the Western Qalamoun heights might mean that Israeli Air planes can be detected over Lebanon easier
    2-Western Qalamoun heights was an umbrella for the Israeli warplanes to strike Damascus since 2012
    3-for the first time since 2012 the SAA can deploy air defense system in this 2000+ meters high area over looking Lebanon and the sea
    4-for sure things in Syria got much more complected for the Israeli Air force

    The only thing I can give you is that there was a claim awhile back it would free up 5,000 men when liberated. I would suspect there are more involved.
    The only allied forces that I have seen mentioned is the Palestinians who are operating in the southwest quadrant. The rest is a mix match of SAA, NDF with possibly a few Republican Guards in the northeast and 5th Corps in the southeast. The Qalamoun Shield is operating in the northwest quadrant. They were one of the first units retrained by the Russians and include ex Marines and Desert Hawks... it is a militia not regular army unit recruited from Latakia and Tartus provinces.
