    Will have to see. Heard they entered through the west side yesterday and another reporter twitted they had entered also from the North and South side within the last little bit. Would suspect there is some mopping up to do before victory can be claimed.

    Seems a bit quick to me, I think this is SAA 'liberated' which means 80% plus or so Smile

    They have not seized Sukan yet...maybe around 50 percent is under their control.

    Ex-Algerian MiG-29SMT.

    Syrian War: News #14 - Page 29 21354910

    New Astrakhan MiG-29SMT.

    The easiest way to distinguish between them is the position of L-150 Pastel RWR. New Astrakhan RWR is under the wing and clearly visible visible on tail vertical fins. In ex-Algerian they are more hiden. In the Syrian video it is ex-Algerian MiG-29SMT as it doesn't have visible RWRs on tail fins.

    It looks that Trump indeed ,managed to create a new policy in Syria , that even though
    is not Perfect at least allows Syria to Fight ISIS in peace without being worried of being
    Bombed anymore by US coalition. So this is not small. Obama and CLinton wanted to overrun Syria . And is being told in US alternative media ,that Trump advisors wants him to send
    150,000 troops to Syria to block Syria from defeating ISIS and force the war to Continue.
    Once Syria defeat ISIS..will have the option to clearing all the pockets of terrorist near Damascus
    ,Hama and Homs.. and wait for a coup against Erdogan ,to retake IDLIB.. or simply help from Trump to pressure TUrkey to leave. and Kurds... in change full autonomy for Kurds in northen Syrian.

    The conflict that seems will have no end is Ukraine.. but eventually they will have to negotiate
    since Europe will not finance Ukraine for ever.

    I am sure if Sukhnah has been liberated they wouldn't announce it in a few days it would be within a day. As they have been waiting a long time to take. Sukhnah will be taken within a few days is more likely statement

    sooner than I thought it seems, figured they would wait afew days to fully secure the city outskirts before announcing it.

    That doesn't seem to be the local way. Did the same in Mosul.

    Now, do they resist the temptation of Deir and head north?

    They could but, they need to close that giant black ISIS black spot going into their lines.

    At least that would make any advance towards Deir much easier.

    With Sukan now captured they can advance along the raf road connecting Sukan to al-telma and enclose and destroy. That is their plan anyway, what they said they want to do.

    No supplies mean dead ISIS they would only be able to fight for so long.

    I would not be surprised to see a dual advance. Close with the Raqqah force while advancing towards Dier.

    Why isnt the SAA steadily advancing in the easier barren East Hama terrain unlike in the nightmarish mountains of Latakia?

    Northern Latakia also had almost 10000 jihadists in extremely fortified heavily forested mountains with very little infrastructure.

    Maybe the plan is to concentrate somewhere else?
