Moreover, the Iraqi Air Force announced that its warplanes destroyed 2 headquarters, 2 ammunition depots and 4 positions of ISIS in Rawa town and al-Qa’im city in the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, the PMU media wing confirmed that the PMU’s 45th brigade reached the al-Qa’im city. The source added that the 45th brigade is preparing to storm the city in the upcoming hours.

Al-Qa’im city is considered the logisitical hub of ISIS on the Syrian-Iraqi border. However, ISIS will likely withdraw from the city due to the large losses it suffered during its latest battles against the government forces, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

    It’s great to see the Iraqi army and PMU moving on the border crossing !
    This will assist the SAA in taking Al Bukamal, and SDF will be on the wrong side of the river ! :))

      Its about eliminating ISIS, and they are on both sides of the river. SDF still also have the rest of Khabour river and the desert east of it.

      Seemes they have some resistance there but not so big. A few days ago SDF had to handle 500 refugees a day too.

        At this present time, in my mind, the SDF are to come in the near future, whether it be through battles or diplomacy – now is the time for what you are watching unfold….. within a week or two, your wish will be granted.

        Why is everyone suddenly panicking, the Syrian (and allies) strategy is phenomenal; remember we are not watching a Yank war movie where they go gung ho, we are watching a brilliantly planned, orchestrated and played out war.

      Exactly. many people are fretting about the delay, but the tactics in action here are absolutely fantastic; the timing is spot on.
