    What is the source of such information?

    • Len Zegelink

      the saa army

    • DJ Double D

      Are you hearing that or reading it for the first time? It was already reported earlier.

    • Darko Dakić

      in this case, just click the picture and you will see a source. But there are more maps, based on many different sources, videos, reports…and they all show about the same. At the moment rebels are reporting how many tanks they have destroyed and how many SAA soldiers they have killed. SAA is reporting what they have liberated. Should be enough to understand who is winning

        When you’re losing the war and can’t prop up your own morale with battlefield victories, then inflated kill numbers are all that’s left. See how many of the enemy bastards we’re killing! We’re making them pay for every inch of ground (that we’re still losing.

        Somebody seem happy on liberated areas on maps only by colouring it but actual situation on ground very vulnerable as SAA troops in vast areas are being destroyed by rebels guerilla raid tactics

        • dutchnational

          Like the advance of IS against SAA south of the Euphrates?

        • Robert Duran

          You dont really understand the reason the areas are painted do you?

        • Mauro Craizer

          Fuck off you wahhabi sand rat.

    • batavian01

      Islamic World News is one source. There are others.

    • PZIVJ

      The internet :p

  • j. jaxson

    Hopefully those jihadi scumbags will all die soon.

  • Gabriel Hollows

    Beautiful. Now for the next pocket, then to Deir Ezzor. I only wish I could be there to fight in the glorious syrian liberation myself.

    • dutchnational

      Well then, go buy a ticket, a gun. As soon as you show up in Danascus, you will be arrested. If you make it thruogh customs, rent a jeep and let you be driven to the front and as soon as you show yourself, IS will collapse…..laughing.

      • Robert Duran

        Where on earth is ‘Danascus’ ?

        • dutchnational

    Unlikely the entire territory had been cleared of terrorists hiding in cave networks. There was a significant force just north of Palmyra. Where did they go?

    Reports like these normally come with numbers of enemy killed and captured. This is suspicious.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      Where did they go?

      ….

      Pockets are not eliminated this way.

      Pockets are very dire for the defenders because they either end in total massacre of defenders, or in their mass surrender. The SAA would have reported it if either happened. The land , by comparison, is usually of less importance.

      No. What must have happened is Isis forces broke thru the pocket and escaped. This is a missed opportunity. Winning pockets is less about winning land and more about destroying enemy forces and materiel. This encirclement was screwed up.

            after you

  • RichardD

    Wow, if true this is great news, go Syria government coalition! :)

  • SOF

    This is a great day. Makes sense to clear out Cauldron #2 since that had less entrenched positions than the Uqayribat situation in Cauldron #1.

    Still it was bloody fast thanks to Russian helicopter hunting packs having a hand in liquidating Daeshbag game like fish in a barrel with nowhere to go with Russian Spetsnaz and SAA locating targets. Helicopters are great for open terrain.
