ISIS faces pressure on multiple fronts in Syria and Iraq:

  • in the provinces of Deir Ezzor as well as in the city of Raqqah in Syria;
  • in the areas of Hawija and Rawah in Iraq.

Recently, Syrian government forces have liberated a large area northwest of Deir Ezzor city, inclding Maadan town, from ISIS and continued their military operation against ISIS in the countryside of Deir Ezzor city.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are still struggling with the ISIS defense in Raqqah city. The SDF is also advancing north of Deir Ezzor with an aim to seize oil and gas infrastructure on the east bank of the Euphrates. On September 25, the SDF accused Russia of striking its positions near the Koniku gas factory in the al-Taybeh area.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi Army and the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) have liberated 120 villages in the Hawija area from ISIS. Now, they are developing the second stage of their operation in the area.

Firefights have been also reported in the area of Rawah town located on the Deir Ezzor-Baghdad highway.

      Because the Iraqi’s have to attack at the same time, no point in going to Abu Kamal if your flank is exposed, it would cost lives. Abu Kamal requires urban fighting and experts in that area are in DeZ, it will happen, just give it time.

        waiting for others = giving up of own life.

      Good question!
      Maybe they are waiting for the PMU in Iraq to do this! But they are tied up in the area of Iraq near Kirkuk liberating the pocket from isis.

        Then maybe next liberating Kirkuk possibly if they have to, since the Kurds in Syria did invaded Hasaka as the Peshmerga invaded Kirkuk.
