This map provides a general look at the military situation in Syria and Iraq on July 19, 2017.
- Iraqi security forces are working on eliminating ISIS terrorists hiding in the city of Mosul after a military vicotry achieved in the city by government forces earlier this month.
- The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are clashing with ISIS terrorists in the city of Raqqah. The old part of Raqqah remains a key ISIS stronghold in the area.
- The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its alies are advancing on ISIS positions in the southern Raqqah countryside and in the northeastern countryside of Palmyra.
Nothing happenes. rigid frontlines like in ww1.
ISIS is a counter puncher, SAA has to periodically fight off their attacks, they dont have the man power to suicide charge every front.
My concern is with the Abadi sock puppet in Bugdud. This guy has the means to limit Iraqi Army and PMU,…thus giving Uncle Shlomo Options on carving out some kind of Sunni kookistan in Iraq West/Syria East. Lots of Oil/Nat Gas on Eastern side of Euphrates Syria for Sunni kookistan whatever to have Funding to support Empires game. US has Kurds in their pocket, …..a Sunni kookistan region carve out is possible. Putin/Lavrov just gave Israhell near 75% of Syria’s Golan. No surprises here if Sunni Kookistan emerges after the smoke clears. With no Sunni statelet, ….US would only have Kurds and FSA to run Against Shia Militias in Syria and Iraq,….unless US are wanting to go boots in. If PMU/Iraqi military do not retake Iraqi West ….the Sunni Road warrior wastelands exist DeFacto
