Could you please do a longer article about the situation in Deir Ezzor? – Perhaps a review of what has been happening in the last few months, with some general insight about Zahreddine’s brilliant mobile defense tactics. How is the garrison being supplied (not just pictures of airdrops, actual numbers) and what are the possible strategies they could employ? – Even if the information is old it would still be nice to get some in-depth analysis of this siege.
