    what is the importance of this area for isis? there’s nothing there, just desert & mountain.

      Not much to begin with I think. I suspect they ended up with this enclave the same way they ended up with that enclave along the Golan Heights, because some local terrorgroup thought ISIS was Da Shit and pledged allegiance to them.

      Manpower. Palestinian camps.

      While it is mostly mountains, it is of strategic value as it is an enclave that is easy to defend and not very far from the inhabited regions around it. These mountains also hold a lot of water and other resources for a guerrilla group, before major climate changing occurred from deforestation, these mountains were abundant in wild life as Syria had wolves and its own Syrian brown bear, a very small cousin to the grizzly bear. More than just desert is keeping these people here.
      Either way they need to be exterminated because they are a bit to close to comfort to surround Christian villages.

    Many may not see the importance of this region, but they used the region to smuggle drugs and arms through this region and it’s end would be a good thing.
