    I’d like to think that ISIS had to pay a price for their rapid counter-attack on the SAA forces in Raqqa, that moving such a long way in a short time exposed them but I don’t know what to think anymore.

    The SAA collapse on the doorstep of Tabaqa military airport looks like a disaster to me. It is difficult for me to believe that the SAA did not lose a significant amount of troops and equipment with such a rapid retreat unless this was a pre-planned withdrawal but I doubt that.

    Maybe it was a feigned fallback in order to identify ISIS positions of interest in the area.
