    What about Kurd;s advance?

  • Nigel Maund

    Good news! Keep up the good work and Dier Ezzor can return to normality soon and rebuild infrastructure, property and lives. Hopefully the US and their vassal States will leave Syria in peace to rebuild lives and the economy. Thereafter, the Syrian diaspora can return from Europe and enjoy their own country and culture.

    Syria have total 300,000 army strength consists of land, air and navy. For offensive they use only 50,000. The remaining 250,000 are using for other duties like to guard pockets and borders etc.

    Syria needs total 600,000 active forces and 600,000 reserves to keep their country in order.

    • Behold a Pale Horse

      The country is full of Russian mercenaries and Iranians.

      • Good. Far better than your terrorist Daesh which has less than 5% Syrian members. Plenty of Chechens, Uzbeks, Uighurs, Saudis, Jordanians.

    If so I hope it is exceeding hot and full of ISIS and their mates.
    Go Syria! and good luck.

    I still hope to see thremobarics employed on Thardah Mountan to roast the ISIS thugs as this would safe the lives of many SAA and their allies.

      Not needed now……………..
      The Syrian Army, backed by allied forces, continues to overrun the Islamic State in eastern Syria, recaptures strategic mountains to the south of Deir Ezzor city.

      According to a military source, Army troops simultaneously attacked Thardeh mountains from two axes; the Panorama to the west and al-Taym Oil Field to the south-west.

      Tharda mountains have been liberated again from USIS.

        This is great news.

  • sagbotgamot

    That is as far as SAA can go. the US says that syrians are strictly prohibited from crossing the Euprates river. if they crossed, The US/Saudi/Israel will conduct an all-out war against the russians, iranians and syrians. Let’s see about that.

    • Julius Meinel

      Technically, SAA does not have to cross the Euphrates river right away in order to to keep the advancing US troops supported coalition at bay. They can prevent them from advancing further south in the Dar el Ezzor province from the western banks of the river by shooting 70 km range Urgan or Smerch mounted missile and by using drones to survey any troop movements on the eastern part of the river.

      Of course, the whole operation would have to largely agreed and coordinate by the Russians. Doubt at this stage in the war that the Syrian army would have the anti material and anti personal sub-munition missiles that are used by the two aforementioned MRL systems.

      Besides, SAA is ill equipped to deal with any possible retaliation of US air force or with any conceivable escalation that the US troops may feel entitled to. So the whole attempt to secure the oil fields in the east is based on the Russian’s risk appetite for this military step.

      It is anyone’s guess what the Russians and US military commanders on the field have agreed to, if any agreement ( tacit of course) would have been reached at this point.
      The developments over the next 7 to 10 days will certainly shed more light into what is in the play for the eastern parts of the Euphrates river.

      • dutchnational

        Technically you are correct.

        Factually you are not. It is highly unlikely that just artillery fire can keep a zone of 70 kms clear of “ennemi” advances over a stretch of almost 200 kms.

        Furthermore, against dug in troops, artillery fire has to be very concentrated. And sometimes, you have an ennemi that can fire back and then you have a small problem. Afrin is a case in point. Turkish artillery fire did really do nothing but get civillians killed. SDF gave return fire and now civillians in the turkish colony of Azaz are complaining about return fire from Afrin.

        Your conclusion, that is something I fully agree with.

    • Andre Lopes

      All important cities are on the west of side of Euprhates river. While Syria don´t have enough mampower to take two enemies at the same time. The Sunni Turks from HTS and FSA also can´t will a fight against Syria and Kurds at the same time. So Syria my not get everything, but the Sunni Turks will not get it eighter. The Sunni Turks will have to surrender sonner or later.

    • So US/Saudi/Israel declaring war on Syria is okay, but if Syria responds in kind, that is not okay?…BTW, US/Saudi/Israel declared war on Syria six years ago. They just fabricated the “moderate rebels” fiction to give themselves plausible deniability.

    • You can call me Al

      They did in fact state that. So what ?.

  • Now they must cross the Euphrates as quick as possible to prevent the kurds to take the other river bank. The real fight is already the race between SAA and kurds for territory. ISIS is just a disturbing factor, not more. I’m afraid that the second round in this war is between SAA and kurds. And we will then see some strange alliance between SAA, Turkey and Iran against kurds and US. Russia might be out then, as they achieved their mission goals.

    • Andre Lopes

      Syria don´t have enought man power to fight Kurds and Isis at the same time. It is a bitter truth, but it is. But, on the other hand. With Kurds taking control of the other side of the river, Isis will not be able flank neither to Harrass Syria army from there and it will easier to exterminate Isis in Mayadin and al bukamal to the south. Also, With Kurds having a say in all those lands, the Sunnis from the HTS and other rebels will have two enemies instead of one. Sunnis from HTS will have to fight Syria and Kurds at the same time. In this situation, Syria will not lose and the Turks will not win.

      • The “enenemy of my enemy is my friend” thing will work only for a limited time. Until SIS is eliminated. You presume a good cooperation between SAA and kurds. This does not exist. The kurds will try to establish an independent nation. Given the large territory they have now occupied, this is a vital threat to Syria. This means war.

        • You can call me Al

          An independent OFFICIAL Kurdish territory will not happen.

          • Andre Lopes

            If i were a Syrian, i would prefer the Kurds there rather than the Sunni HTS or FSA. Since Syria is facing Turkey, Saud Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Britain and Israel at the same time. Let, them the Sunnis solve this with the Kurds. Why do all the work for the Sunnis to come in and stab the Shias in the Back. Let the Turks Sunnis lose this while Shias have a good relation with this occasional Ally.

          • You can call me Al

            I am not, repeat not disagreeing that is preferably, but I was quite specific in how I wrote my previous comment in that I stated “independent OFFICIAL Kurdish territory – there maybe the Kurdish area, whatever; but it will be part of Syria itself.

            The US aim was to balkanise the Country – my point now is that that will not happen, God willing.

            That is all – my view only.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            There is no Qatar ,Jordan, Britain, Turkey and Saudi Rabid dogs are too weak, just Israel and the US which will likely be forced out of the region,as the Brits have as they see the handwriting on the wall. Kurds are no one to get in bed with to fight Turkey this would create tensions in the region. Turkish withdrawal of support of the FSA is ongoing , and making an enemy of the fifth largest army in the world is not a good idea.

            Thing is to beat Turkey at this game as they will try to annex the region by offering citizenship to the populace, which they will tie into working in the area under their control.

        • Andre Lopes

          Syrian Sunnis and Shias live in those cities, like Raqqa and others. Kurds will have to come to terms with these Syrian cities and the terms of in those Srian Cities will have to have the aggrement of the Syrians. So Kurds will have to give the cities were they are not the majority.

        • gustavo

          This is true but because USA is behind kurds decisions. Kurds have become another USA puppets. So, in fact the next big fight will be between Syria and SDF (kurds puppets), and the other fight will be between Syria and Turkey (NATO).

        • Barba_Papa

          A land locked nation surrounded by hostile neighbors is not a good recipe for long term survival. Just closing their borders and airspace would deprive the Kurds of any means of resupply. There’s a reason why the Iraqi Kurds have gone out of their way to make friends with Erdogan and not have any ties whatsoever with the PKK.

          The closest Kurdish territory to the sea is the Afrin canton. Which is also the most vulnerable as its sits between Al Qaida country in Idlib and the Turks in the north and east. Who ALL love to exterminate them.

      • MeMadMax

        “Syria don´t have enought manpower”

        LOL… where have you been for the past year???

        So taking on terrorists in damascus, hama, and aleppo simultaneously last november must mean they are still short on man power right???

        LOL

        • Andre Lopes

          Well, HTS and FSA are still there. Kurds are Still there. The only side losing territory are ISIS. When it changes, it wll.Until now, It didn´t happen this way.

          • MeMadMax

            But you can see it coming from a mile away.
            Trump has signaled no love for the kurds, only a desire to destroy isis and leave. Yea, sure they will keep on selling… supplying war material but that don’t mean anything either. The “FSA” and “HTS” are at this time just jockeying for a favorable exit as they have had almost all funding cut off with the exception of the ones supported by turkey.

      • You can call me Al

        Isn’t the PMU across the border waiting ?. I think we may be surprised about how the Kurds manipulate this situation for all in Syria concerned. My view only.

        • Kell

          Unfortunately not, Iraq is still pissing around trying to clear already surrounded and besieged pockets rather than pushing for the border.

          • You can call me Al

            But the PMU is at the border, cleansing the border towns.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        They Syria has the manpower to even defeat HTS and the FSA right now, seems you get your info from the US state media shills. Kurds have even less control than you think most of their current forces are Arab which is in it until ISIS are gone and have already decided to be with Syrian govt.
        The Kurds represent less than 8% of the population of Syria which is not enough support for a separation, expect the Arab majority to protest and start a civil war in the region. The Afrin Kurds are in negotiations right now and have the rapport with Russians and looks as though they will reconcile with Syria.

        Syrian Army and it’s allies don’t need the Kurdish soldiers as they may be come friendly fired , they lack coordination and discipline. They would be no good in a real fight as this will become. Have recognized some ISIS members in their group so they will be no good, as they could still hold ties to the Mestarevim of the MOSSAD,they could easily betray at any time.

      • Kell

        I tend to agree they dont “yet” have the manpower or strategic imperitive to fight SDF, IS, Al Nusra and FSA all at the same time, the Peace zone initiatives were the only reason they could mass enough forces to deal with the Hama pocket and run the gauntlet to Deir Ezzor.
        The situation in Idlib is already changing for the worse with Al Nusra making constant strikes along the Aleppo highway

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Syria lacked the air power never the manpower, they currently are waiting on this current peace talks to decide to settle those areas once and for all. They have all those zones surrounded and well defended as HTS has already learned as the attack was wiped out on those positions.

          The SAA has been continually training and prepping new reservists and soldiers they graduated 1000 new troops and 1200 new reservists. The SAA has 300,000+ but still low numbers as the Russians would like to see 600,000 troops.

    • Certainly possible. there are so many variables that future alliances are difficult to forecast.

    • You can call me Al

      Apparently the engineer corps are bring the bridges in as we speak (text).

      The Omar field is the critical area to capture + the engineer corps bringing the airport up to scratch. 1/2 weeks, sit, back and watch. Keep the faith.

    The Americans crossed the river up at Raqqa and grabbed the Syrian air base , now the SAA is taking the industrial area on the eastern shore !

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      They had planned to be there as soon as possible as they have secured a buffer in the region against the US/SDF and had prepped the pontoon bridges as fast as possible. Think they crossed on Friday with Russian troops in tow and more arrived on Saturday to bolster those already there.

      • Kell

        I hope so, do you guys have any sources for this ie that they have already crossed
        ?

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          They brought the pontoon bridges the first day and you don’t sit and wait with them for a day or 2 you build right away, the new Mi8 helos were spotted in use which are used for airborne drops. Russian armored with special forces on a ride along were spotted for the past couple of days.

    • Kell

      Really? excellent news!

  • gustavo

    We hope that Russia aerospace force continue and increases its support to Syria-Ira-Hezbolah-Russia ground forces to cross the Euphrates riven and stop SDF (kurds puppets) to going north or east Syria land, and stop weapons supply line from USA to terrorists. I am sure SAA and Russia can do it. Just do it. Stop these SDF guys.

  • Kell
  • The Farney Fontenoy

    What are they waiting for?! Get across that river!!!

  • Rodger

    Nice, now forbid the US from entering Syrian airspace.

  • gustavo

    SAA forces need to cross Euphrates river and stop SDF( USA-Israel puppets) right away. Russia can see any SDF movement and is its responsibility to stop SDF with its aerospace force. Otherwise, the supposed victory in Deir Ezzor will be marked by ineptitude of Syria-Hezbolah-Iran-Russia forces.
