    With the Kurds advancing fast, the SAA need to hurry up and grab Deir ez-Zor and Southern Syria.

    This area is Syria's keystone. Controlling it provides stability to most govt. held regions + a launching point - why IS fight so hard here.

    SAA must focus in this area & stop trying to advance agst US occupied areas. Once IS defeated, US wont have excuse no more to be in Syria...

    Well well color me surprised...SAA has attacked kurds near the Shatnah area word is they want to capture the Tabqa military base, Assad is making a ballsy move here or he is under Russian orders.

    I did not think he would do that so soon, Of course, it seems like these are just small skirmishes nothing serious.

    If correct it will be interesting as to how the SDF/US will react to an attack on their flank. Pull forces back?

    Applying logic, I can't see for its part how the US can react any differently to how to has it has around al-Tanf, these are Syrian forces attacking US allies attacking ISIS. Any other reaction will expose the different objective actually in place in south Syria.

    Excellent move by Syria/Russia.

    I mostly think these are just small skirmishes that have no meaning.

    It's possible since the SAA and kurd lines connected there was a brief firefight due to positioning mishaps.

    This kind of thing does happen on occasion on the battlefield.

    That said SAA was firing heavy howitzers at those Kurdish areas which well is a lot harder to pass off has a "mistake".

    I don't think it's anything serious yet if they keep attacking then well... the problem for me.

    That said SAa would have to be foolish to open a front against the kurds when their flank is exposed to ISIS yet, hence why i mostly think it's just a brief lines meeting deals.

    Thanks, any new SAA/SDF interface line will be interesting. This one in particular with the SyAF probably wanting to get its Tabqa airbase back.

    Is there any info how many ISIS fighters are guarding Arak and Al Sukhna? If its less than 1000, then there's no reason that the SAA cant destroy them swiftly with VKS bombardment. The "B-but the roads are mined" argument is completely worthless since the SAA can bypass said roads with an armored push. ISIS can advance 100s of km without roads with fucking pickups then there's no reason why SAA tracked armor has such a hard time bypassing Arak.

    Say what you will, but Arak is a 100 times more important than East Allepo or Suweida in this moment. I'm happy that the SAA managed cross into Raqqah though. I'm not sure how this will help Deir Ez Zor.

    Turkey is sending troops to Qatar, I wonder how this will play out? I think reason the US bombed the SAA and Allies, was to keep the attention away from this fiasco.

    Russia is supporting SAA far less than America is supporting SDF. Other than a few airstrikes once in a blue moon, Russia isn't doing anything else. The US is doing close air support and using HIMARS artillery. If SAA were supported by America, SAA be in full control of Deir es Zor by now.

    U.S Col. Ryan Dillon: USAF shot down resistance UAV in south Syria امریکا: پهپاد سوریه سرنگون کردیم

    سرهنگ رایان دیلون: یک پهپاد نیروهای حامی دولت سوریه سرنگون کردیم
    سرهنگ رایان دیلون، سخنگوی ائتلاف بین‌المللی مبارزه علیه داعش با اعلام این خبر گفت که این پهباد روز پنجشنبه به نیروهای مورد حمایت ایالات متحده در یک منطقه در جنوب سوریه حمله کرده بود. به گفته این مقام آمریکایی، این حادثه در منطقه‌ای رخ داد که بر اساس توافق دولت و مخالفان مشمول پیمان منع تخاصم بود.
    نظامیان آمریکایی پیش از این دوبار به نیروهای متحد دولت سوریه حمله کرده بودند. اما این نخستین باری است که نظامیان یا شبه نظامیان دولت سوریه به سوی نیروهای تحت حمایت آمریکا حمله می‌کنند.

    Whay would they need to push towar Arak/Sukhan now? What is the point if Hama is not cleared still?
    There are small advances around Mustadira mountains and south of Palmyra, widening the flanks, maybe they will capture Arak eventually. But there will be no push toward DaerEzZor as long As Hama is not cleared, and all that area north of Palmyra toward Tabqa...


    So something like this, or at least that is expected

    This map is quite interesting from another angle of view. SAA is now liberated fully green rural area at lake Assad and push ISIL in the desert. ISIL will have more and more problems with food and water supplies as they are more and more isolated in empty desert. ISIL terrorists around Palmira and in eastern Hama will be more and more dependent of food and water supplies driving throuh desert and with bombing their water and food supplies, they will not fight long there. Raqqa and Deir Ezzor are still at Euphrates river, where they could still have some food and water. With loosing ground around Raqqa ISIL is loosing green rural areas and with that their source of food, so they will be now forced to defend Raqqa as long as possible or they will be trapped in empty desert. This is their only source of food and water.
