I wonder why SAA has not taken height Tal Sakhar just SE of Kafr Nabudah yet. Hopefully it will fall next. :)

Because maybe the Jihadis are too well entrenched and the SAA has to fight an uphil battle? So far most of the SAA’s gains have been on the low ground, whereas in the high ground the Jihadis seem to have been able to hold their ground. And in Latakia (uphill battle) the SAA has had no success at all.

This is correct – it is obvious that OP IDLIB DAWN is nowhere near taking even immediate objectives, which are KHAN SHEIKHOUN, JISR ash-SHUGHOUR, and the strategic vital watershed/spine of the JEBEL ZAWIYAH . Still fighting in Ladhakia and Hama, enemy remains entrenched in the entirety of the DEZ (De-escalation Zone per Sochi agreement) see original plan https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/076c22ba15948b36d3c8c9efab831939f33a18ee323aad8eb568ffa7b57aa52b.jpg

Can be a good thing though. The Germans fought the Allies tooth and nail in Normandy, making them fight for every inch from june until august. And by then the breakout happened and the Germans had literally nothing left anymore to stop it. In a battle of attrition the SAA will have the advantage over the headchoppers. So the more they fight now, the less they will be able to fight once they’ve expended themselves.

That’s their primary target but it’s not an easy one. Hopefully it will join the red part of the map soon.

Kafr Nabuda was a set up for a killing ground, the rats only had to be drawn out of their prepared defences. When they came, they bled all the way to town for their week-long victory. If SAA had Tel Saker HTS probably hadn’t been able to even mount an effective counter-offensive. It is a stronghold, but it will fall in due course. It is not going anywhere and is fully available for aerial bombardment. No point in trying to charge uphill if the hill will fall over time as it becomes isolated.

Tal Sakhar is just a pimple on a plain, of no tactical importance. The vital ground runs immediately NE from Kafr Nabouda providing both covered approaches to the city and direct line of sight from multiple heights 340-350 m to adjust fire (direct and indirect) onto SAA positions. Until SAA take these heights https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b13d9c5092ee0e9263caa4d16ae1668cf4f558dae00851e820cbd1484cf79338.jpg Kafr Nabouda will remain under enemy rocket artillery and mortar fire
