Government Forces Advancing From Western Raqqa To Eastern Homs

A screenshot from the video

Syrian government forces have started an advance in the direction of the ISIS-held town of al-Sukhnah in eastern Homs from the recently liberated areas near Resafa in western Raqqah.

According to pro-government sources, the army and its allies are going to clear the desert south and southeast of Resafa prior to launching an advance on the ISIS stronghold of al-Sukhna.

SAA should first clear the packet, before advancing east or East-South to shrink the front lines. The SAA could very easy outflank the ISIS from behind ISIS front lines, if the SAA just continue going South from the point where to armies meat at the Ithriyah-Resafa Road. As looks like the SAA tiger forces are to most capable SAA force to make any substantial advances in front line


I don’t know, strategically it would be best to strike to the Euphrates river from Resafa and then down to Deir Ezzor, to deny the US any chance to move into this area. The longer the SAA waits, the bigger the chance for the SDF, or some other US FSA proxy force to move into this area. And once they’re there with a US presence on the ground, they’re not going to leave. At least ISIS in central Syria will.
