    OPSEC seriously increased. Almost no traffic out there re Syrian operations. Only exception being on the Lebanese border.

    This is how it should be.

    SYRIAN ARMY, HEZBOLLAH, LEBANESE ARMY LAUNCH OPERATION AGAINST ISIS AND HAYAT TAHRIR AL-SHAM AT SYRIAN-LEBANESE BORDER (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

    Syrian War: News #14 - Page 19 7-9

    The Syrian army, Hezbollah  and the Lebanese Army have launched a coordinated operation against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and ISIS at the Syrian-Lebanese border.



    The goal of the operation is to end militant presence in the Lebanese town of Arsal and the Syrian village of Fleeta.

    The military operation followed a series of attempts of the Lebanese government to negotiate with militants in the area and to push them to withdraw from the Lebanese border to the Syrian militant-held province of Idlib.

    Photos from the battlefield:

    Great, I can only hope that IAF won't attack them from the air under the pretext of this and that.

    Nice..

    The arm-and-train program of the CIA for Syrian opposition has been ended based on assessment and was not a favor to Russia, according to US Special Operations Command head Raymond Thomas.

    Bit late, but relevant to the War.
    Don't like Jimmy Dore's politics, but this is fricken spot on:



    The level of propaganda in US media (supposedly liberal and "progressive) is astounding.

    That's one thing, another thing is that they will still keep pumping their money/supplies/arms to the kurds (SDF/YPG).

    Some weeks ago I ended one myself. I was strong enough to initiate it and then wouldn't bother. It's quite a relief when you have the initiative, notify her and let her know you want to move away, with no contact (from what I hear that's a popular method women often apply, minus the decency sometimes to explain, as I did on a message). And yes I miss lots of aspects of her, but hey she had flaws that wouldn't make anything serious work. I keep reminding myself that.

    If she didn't bother to answer your calls, you don't deserve to waste your precious time on her.

    SAA is being smart to go for the river, leave one flank to defend, as they did when they moved to Maskaneh with that water canal.

    Reports that the SAA took Dalhah are true however reports they took Ukayrishan is false.

    SAA is now playing a very very dangerous game one wrong move and ISIS will have a field day.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Tiger Forces are within 40 kilometers of the strategic city of Deir Ezzor according to a high-ranking commander within the elite formation.
    https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-tiger-forces-within-40-km-deir-ezzor-city/
    Over the last several days, the true nature of SAA advances on the ground in southern Raqqa Governorate has been shrouded in secrecy for a number of political and military reasons.

    Officially, SAA military sources have announced capture of the town of al-Dakhelah (on the western bank of the Euphrates River) as well as the B’ir al-Sabkhawi oil well and the al-Sabkhawi gas field in Raqqa Governorate’s far southeastern countryside. This was reported about 10 hours ago.


    However, one particular Tiger Forces military source has said, despite the fact that this officially is denied, that today the Tiger Forces managed to achieve a mammoth 22 kilometer advance down the western bank of the Euphrates reaching the town of Shayma – located 40 kilometers north of Deir Ezzor city.

    The commander attributed today’s large advance to a general collapse of ISIS defenses in the area.

    The Tiger Forces commander added that the SAA will now face a harder time pushing towards Deir Ezzor and estimated that the SAA should reach the city by the start of September.

    In any case, the advance by the SAA’s Tiger Forces over the last week has come as a major surprise for observers of the Syrian war, with even the most optimistic pro-government commentators not expecting the city to be reached until the late autumn of 2017.

    No, they are rolling well over that, and no IS can't do shit, expect some hit and run suicidal attack, but DEZ will go to SAA hands, Kurds are too late.

    Hezbollah destroying Nusra, 60% of Nusra territory on border captured, around 70 terrorists destroyed.
