    Russian SF in operation, interesting second little video at link (today?). More of them or just more pictures?

    Russian SOF/SSO are now participating in battle on border with Deir Ez Zor east of Sukhna. Video show them firing ATGMs at IS targets.

    Big advance today 25km to Deir and 16km to Al shoula

    https://mobile.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-syrian-army-makes-huge-advance-towards-deir-ezzor-25km-lift-siege/

    And it seems that the UN has faith in SAA and kurds they expect Raqqa and Deir to be liberated by October or early October.

    I am just not getting the sense that Daesh is offering much resistance from these developments. Russia probably broke
    Daesh's back when it bombed their oil convoys. No money, no mercenary jihadis. To think that Uncle Scumbag claimed
    that no effort was made to oil convoys was to save the environment. Smelliest BS ever.

    Once you have an enemy in full fallback mode it is very difficult for them to make a stand and fight particularly when you have control of the sky and it is over open countryside like a desert. If you are the army of a sovereign state and that enemy, like ISIS, is in effect a semi trained rabble with its 'good' units far away, destroyed or holding a more important position, its days are numbered.

    As the besieged parts of Deir are no longer in any real peril it is going to be interesting to see if the SAA just stops there for the PR coup photos and a cup of tea and then immediately pushes on, perhaps bypassing the main ISIS positions in the town, heading NE as fast as it can to head off any SDF/US move south. Easier to keep them out of territory than to take it back later.

    New Peto map, but a few hours old.

    17km left welcome
    At this pace they may actually make it in a matter of 24 hours, a day or two tops.

    What's this? I thought the Coalition air power stayed east of the Euphrates. Maybe an invite by the Russians? If correct we don't see strikes on this scale often from the RuAF.

    Within Syria‏ @WithinSyriaBlog 2h2 hours ago
    Replying to @WithinSyriaBlog

    US said it killed 80 ISIS fighters and destroyed 40 vehicles of ISIS between south Raqqa and east Homs , Great more advance for SAA ????????????


    EDIT

    Is this related to the ISIS coach convoy now stuck in the middle of nowhere?

    EDIT 2

    Definitely, this is from Reuters

    The coalition said it had contacted Russia to deliver a message to the Syrian government that it would still not let the convoy pass, and that it had offered suggestions on how to save the civilians in it from suffering.

    “Food and water have been provided to the convoy,” it said, without giving further details.

    The coalition has said it will not target the convoy directly while it contains civilians, but said in its statement it had struck about 85 IS fighters near the convoy.

    It had also struck about 40 IS vehicles near the convoy including a tank, an artillery system, armed vehicles and transport vehicles seeking to help move the fighters in the convoy into its territory, it said.
