    Interesting that SDF, no doubt with US Tacair and ground elements, have reached the choke point where the Euphrates narrows, the exact location I pinpointed seven weeks ago on my post to SF :
    ” I
    have determined the target location as Lat : 35 42 28 N, Long : 39 50 25 E. On
    GoogleEarth in degrees decimal this is 35.71 N, 39.84 E….(16JAN2017) I then commented on this US raid (recon in force) :
    ” US
    have clammed up re mission purpose/objective/results, other than reporting no
    friendly casualties, engagements or prisoners. Very suspicious. Was this a
    pick-up, plant, salting of WMD (NBC) materiel ?? Is this to be
    “discovered” as Assads hidden chem wpns stockpile to justify
    insertion of US airborne units ? Or will US claim find of long-lost Iraqs WMD ?
    Why mount a large heliborne (don’t know if CH47 or MH53 used ??) op in Indian
    country, spend 90 mins on ground securing area including water plant, then
    extract for no apparent reason ? …” Well we now know, on the SF map this “facilty “is now tagged as AL KIBAR MILITARY BASE. Does this confirm what we have suspected all along, that US/SDF forces will now effect a lodgement on the right bank thus blocking ISIS riverine and road travel up/down the N4 Raqqa-Deir Az-Zour ? Any bets that US airborne units now in theater will soon be “in country ” along the southern Euphrates ? Hmmm.
