On August 18, local sources in Tal Afar town claimed that ISIS started burning its official documents in the town. The source also claimed that one of ISIS Sheikhs in Tal Afar told people during the Friday prayer that this might be his last Friday prayer.

The US-led collation claimed that there is between 1,000 to 2,000 ISIS fighters in the Tal Afar area. If true, the battle will last at least for 2 months as ISIS fighters there are willing to fight until the death.

PMU and army units are deploying to the Tal Afar area:

    When this is over and Syria has won, you best believe Merka will take the credit for it.

      It will never be over, as IS will be replaced by Kurds in the war against Iran’s hegemony in the region.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        There was only US hegemony in the region and now that is on the decline and steadily weakening and being replaced by Russia China and Iran. The US needs to take the heat for the inept handling of this region.

          The Kurds would be far more harder to defeat than ISIS since they are many and will be officially supplied by NATO and Arabs. Isis was able to sustain 3 years of war 10 x less than kurds can mobilize.

            ISIS has more capability than the SDF and have only engaged them 17% of the time and when they do they inflict heavy casualties. The manpower of ISIS at the height was 85,000+ , they are down to about 20-25,000 , The Kurds lack even the support to maintain what they have going in Raqqa and rely heavily on Former ISIS units to be the Arab portion of the SDF each of the US backed units were trained up to 2 years or more in Jordan.

            Mawghir ,Ghosts, were ISIS units in Abu Kamal region of which the Ghosts of the desert are calling in the airstrikes and killing civilians.They had called the recent airstrike and the numbers are about upwards of 41 dead and 31 wounded in a region with less than 15 tops ISIS members who are afraid to approach that town guess not anymore.

            Just trying to keep up with all these re branded units is getting nauseating , Ruder Global is busy in this conflict and Charles Lister has some explaining to do on Ahrar al Sham and HTS.

    Good hunting and good luck.
