    Timely
    operational offensive. Dai’sh cannot defend across open countryside and have
    almost no fixed positional defenses between ITHRIYAH and TABQA airbase and dam.
    SAA could assemble and mount a 2-3 battalion task force, with SP arty and air
    in close support to advance east , to link up with the Tiger Brigade after Deir
    Hafer and Jirah airbase are re-taken, thus developing a pincer movement on
    Raqqa from NW and SW. Early days but Dai’sh are over-extended and hard pressed in
    these areas, once they lose Deir Hafer they are finished in the Al-Bab pocket.
    Good times are coming.
