    BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has liberated the last Islamic State (ISIS) stronghold, ‘Uqayribat, in the central region of Syria, the elite ISIS Hunters reported tonight.

    According to the report released by the pro-government unit, the Islamic State has left the area and the town of ‘Uqayribat is full secured.

    Al-Masdar has reached out to the Syrian Arab Army for confirmation, as no official statement has been released by the military.

    US-backed FSA agreed in a deal to free pilot shot down 2 weeks ago

    US-backed YPG still refuse to release pilot shot down 2 months ago

    Mmmmm

    It means the pilot was captured by US paramilitary forces, who know that the aircraft would be fired, likely shut-down and who were ready to reach the place first. The US has not interest in a exchange. The US has interest in intoxication from people like you.

    Well I got some reports that Uqayribatr has been seized by SAA looks to be true.

    Why would it be a lie. What possible propaganda motive would that serve? As if there is no evidence of SAA steady progress on the
    ground. Daesh is basically imploding. All their counter-offensives so far have been a sad joke. By now the default assumption should
    be progress, until proven otherwise.

    Based on the story to date it is likely to be not totally true. The initial assault troops are in the town but other reports are that it could take another couple of days to clear the place. Overoptimism in PR seems to rule.

    The ISIS counter offensive west along the Euphrates doesn't seem to be a joke.

    The map shows clearly there's just flat land ahead of SAA all the way to DeZ - why the defeatism that it'll take 8 months?

    IMHO SAA & allies will be in Deir Ezzor in 2 weaks at most. Maybe evdn one week.

    There's always that one guy like you that refuses to believe in absolutely proven stuff.

    Yes, there is a video of IS attack on Ghaman Ali(geolocated) with them capturing all of this, and slaughtering 10s of SAA soldiers.

    Yes, the one guy like me does not believe in unproven photos. FYI, your linked vid does not work in this AO but it's no big deal. If your vid shows brutality then you should put a warning stating so. Me, I don't care, I've seen more than you will ever see but others have not, especially the casual browsers on this sight.

    3 articles to read to get your feet wet if you haven't already on the Kurd issue... a bit partial so don't take it all for word but it will get your head moving, with some questions of your own - of which you'll seek answers - which makes all the difference when formulating an opinion. The show is coming after Dez...

    The 8 months is not to retake Deir, it is an estimate on what will be needed, probably as a minimum to take the Euphrates valley. The SAA are probably going to need Iraqi help.

    The SAA group supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces continues offensive to liberate the besieged city of DEIR EZ-ZOR
    Having conducted reconnaissance by drones, the military detected the terrorists pulling in armored vehicles to the DEIR EZ-ZOR area at night. The militants are also trying to redeploy disordered and retreating forces, equipping fortified places with artillery positions on the way of the SAA forces’ advance.
    The Russian aircrafts are making efforts to impede it by eliminating hostile ammo storages, control posts, armored vehicles, and weapons.
    As a result, the Russian Su-35 airstrikes in the vicinity of UQAYRIBAT and MADAN-JADID destroyed: two tanks, two ammo storages, weapons and fuel convoy, improvised MLRS, over ten trucks carrying ammo, ATVs armed with large-caliber machine-guns, anti-aircraft weapons, and mortars.
    Having provided air support to the SAA units, the Russian Su-34 airplanes have destroyed a large IS convoy of 12 trucks carrying ammo, fuel and weapon on the DEIR EZ-ZOR – RASAFA road section.

    Believe in what you want. No video or proof will prove you otherwise. You already have your opinion, and you are not willing to change it, even if proofs are right there.

    They will need to take the rest of Daer city first. IS in Daer controls the area half of the size of area they control in Raqqa now. Question is whether they will resist like in Raqqa or not.

    Updated area map. As per mentioned previously in regards to Iraq... this has to be a joint effort to finish off ISIS and Iraq still has a few other pockets of ISIS not shown here that they are working on clearing up. ISIS really has nowhere left to go so have two choices. Fight or surrender and so far not much surrendering.

    Further to yesterday's discussion on Uqayribat we have the normal ISIS back and forth eventually, after a while more fighting, the SAA will prevail.

    SAA withdrew from Jruh. Uqayribat still under ISIS control. East Salamiyah #Hama

    IS regained several points in Uqayrbat town which were captured by the Syrian Army & allies with continuation of clashes & airstrikes, Hama

    Clearing out and taking over are different things. So that is a clear example of hair splitting BS.

    Daesh offensives are a joke considering the fact that they are losing. They have not managed to
    stop the SAA advance pretty much anywhere. The Euphrates is not going to result in a roll back of
    Syrian forces to Damascus. We have seen lots of back and forth on the front for years. The difference
    is that in 2017 it has been a one-way street for the SAA. Uncle Scumbag sabotage notwithstanding.
