    Looks like the SAA momentum is lost and initiative is also lost. Now ISIS will rebuild their defence lines and regroup and again will take 3 weeks for SAA to advance 14km

      I believe the map shown , is way out of date . Yesterday the SAA had reached the contact point with SDF . And cleared ISIS to the west . ISIS is done , now the Tiger Forces need to follow the river down to Deir Ezzor , there is a town in need of relief .

        Will the SDF permit the SAA to pass through its lines or are you predicting the SDF held section of the road around Tabqa will be bypassed by the SAA somehow? I cannot see how this axis of advance to Deir Ezzor works tactically or logistically for the SAA.

          If they don’t let SAA pass, SAA will withdraw from Manbij countryside. They will comply, I guarantee you that! They can’t afford to openly fight Turkey while Raqqah offensive is on, even though it’s a cosmetic offensive, ISIS has largely withdrawn from there.

          I would expect the SDF will allow the Syrian army to pass , after a polite request of course , the Kurds will know of the southern situation . There has been no SAA , Kurdish friction in the last few years ,bite only that created by the US in the SDF . Neither party wants to start anything , SAA will encounter small ISIS pockets along the river road , but few mines , as no one would expect SAA to approach from the north . If SDF does not allow a pass through , it is easy enough to go around .

            Reports just coming in of fighting between SAA and SDF….. I too didn’t think that either side was looking for a fight but it looks like I was wrong.

            Do you have a link? If that is true, it needs urgently to send rapid forces over the road from Ithriya….

    Clearly it is noted that the interest of the FSD, obstruct the way to the Syrian army in its advance towards the south-east, occupying and extending zones towards the south of the dam of Tabqa in the right margin of the Euphrates. The Kurds for “some reason” block the way to prevent the SAA from recovering the oil fields of the Raqqa and Dier Ez Zor area. If the FSD’s information was to take Raqqa, they would have done so long ago
