Government forces, led by the Syrian Arab Army Tiger Forces, have liberated the villages of Wadi Latum, Dagher, Latum, Quwayr and Dahr Matla south of the recently liberated village of Taybah at the Sukhna-Resafa road.
Army troops and pro-government militiamen are now in only 10 km from Sukhna. If they are able to meet their counterparts in this town, they will fully enircle ISIS terrorists in the area north of the Homs-Palmyra highway.
Some sources even speculate that government forces have already made this. However, no photos or videos have been provided.
Meanwhile, government forces, led by the 5th Assault Corps ISIS Hunters, have continued developing momentum in the Uqayrabat area following the liberation of Huwaysis. They have liberated Wadi Huwaysis, Taraq Sawwanat Hasw, Wadi Awabid, Jub Shuyukh, Sharqa Reservoir, Aydiyah and the nearby points.
Earlier today, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that the Russian Aerospace Forces have increased its bombing campaign against ISIS. Russian warplanes now conduct to 60-70 sorties a day.
some sources say that the second ISIS pocket has been created
Any attempted breakouts by ISIS will of course be dangerous for the SAA but in turn the breakouts will concentrate larger ISIS formations in smaller Kill Zones for the Russian Aircraft to deal with, so that will have some advantages .
i think they will never regroup. They have nowhere to go :D So, cleaning the pocket will be slow.
Yes, it is a vast area.
SAA is making great progress to close the gap. Taking Jabel ad Dahik mount just west of Latum will give them a very solid position to look down on any Daesh rats trying to escape. So ISUS will be looking at this: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8325cc1e40648c5e50c658cb43d99f4285a842fb8287bfb16a632205c525fd23.jpg HAHA
I went to a small market in L.A, and saw on the news that Trump did not listen to the Taliban letter, and instead will not identify the amount of U.S pawns or servicemen (if you still call them that) into Afghanistan. Now WTF has gone into that man’s mind!
Only 10 km is the rest until the creation of the new pocket. Go ahead, Tigers!
