Syrian opposition sources claimed that ISIS fighters attacked the SAA in the T-2 station 70km west of al-Bukamal. However, these claims were not confirmed.

Meanwhile, pro-government sources said that that the SAA, Hezbollah, Iranian-backed forces and some units of the Tiger Forces are preparing to launch the final phase of their attack to retake the remaining ISIS-held part of the western bank of the Euphrates. The upcoming attack of the SAA will be critical for the victory over ISIS. A large number of ISIS fighters and leaders will be besieged in the Homs desert if the attack succeeded.

    The Russians have been making bomber runs in SE DE almost every day for weeks. That adds up after a while. Once the Syrian government coalition closes the riverside gap to create a new contained pocket. The war will enter a new phase with a transition to clearing contained interior and border pockets. Including the NE SDF area.

    I’m anticipating that the government footprint growing while the regime change and secessionist element’s footprints shrink, isn’t going to change. And that government administration will progressively be reestablished in these areas as they’re cleared and secured.

    SAA is slowed down by the gargantuan amounts of weaponry they keep capturing from ISIS…

    • dutchnational

      Seems to me they lose more to IS and opposition both as in destroyed and captured then they capture themselves. SAA losses amount to several tanks daily as of late.

      • Mikronos

        They’re operating in some classic tank-killing (people-killing, too) territory. It’s a wonder they have any left.

        • dutchnational

          At some point they will exhaust their supply of older tanks. Will Russia supply new ones in sufficient quantities?

          • PZIVJ

            So you believe all HTS and Amaq reports?
            Your head is full of BS propaganda for sure. :(

            amn

          • dutchnational

            Even pro SAA sources admit to severe lossess, both men and materiël. Tiger forces admitted tot losing 250 or so last month.

          • Gregory Louis

            Yeah cause 6-7 years of straight civil war wouldn’t cause you to lose most of your stockpile

          • dutchnational

            Acc to sources Syria once had over 3k tanks. They must have lost most of them by now.

          • batavian01

            Your guess? They “must have” according to who? You and your bud at SOHR and that rabble at Amaq?

          • Gregory Louis

            That has got to be the most ignorant statement you have made so far on Southfront divide all those tanks into their proper catergories are they all MBT’s fair enough even then you have weapons ranging from the T-72, T-62, T-55/54’s and more, equipment switches hands and equipment at the beginning of the war was captured by different rebels groups who also switched hands at it and add ISIS to the mix too so we don’t have an exact number of any Syrian equipment until the war’s over….plus Russia has sent them replacement tanks from the T90A tanks to the T62m’s…..”they must have lost them by now”…. lol guess you don’t watch news from the frontlines unless its Al-Qaeda or ISIS propaganda huh…

      • batavian01

        According to Amaq News Agency?

  • Hezbollah86

    There is big chance that Al-Baghdadi is there, that’s why they add so much effort in offensive instead of defense and run off.

    • Kira Binkley

      Was there a sighting?

  • Bolter10

    Who said ISIS is defeated?

    • PZIVJ

      First photo is a guy aiming at a brick wall 10 feet away. seriously? :DDDD
      The map I checked shows that ISIS only holds the villages of Al Siyai and Al Hasrat on the western side of the river (just N of Bukamal). After that SAA will clear the desert to the west, I think the operation will be completed within 10 days.
      GO TIGERS GO (now to IDLIB) :)

    ISIS ATTACKED ! did anybody say that ISIS was death already ? Yes, Russia is in a hurry to leave Syria, even it terrorism is highly active using suicide bomber, or sudden appearing somewhere.

    • PZIVJ

      But who is saying Russia is going to leave Syria ?
      They have signed long term leases for 2 bases along the coast.

    When the SAA=Hezbollah=Iran get together to carry out an offensive, there is only one loser;TheRats1 Death to the worms! Victory to SAA and Hezbollah and Iran!
