Donate

This map provides a general look at the military situation in Syria on August 1, 2017. An intense fighting is ongoing between government forces and ISIS terrorists in the southern countryside of Raqqah where ISIS is attempting to break the pocket west of Maadan. If this pocket is cleared from ISIS units, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies will be able to advance on the town of Maadan itself.

  • Jan Sobieski

    The large pocket south east of Damascus should have been eliminated by SAA, if I recall correctly.

    • Cyriak Papasissis

      It is covered by the de-escalation zone , and anyway the FSA units there are dissolving slowly , after the SAA blocked their way to becoming relevant, and after the US-Jordan do not supply them anymore , do not pay them , and threatened to remove back the weapons they gave them.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        The US is still training Islamic “rebels” in Jordan and will continue after ISIS is finished. The US is a leopard that won’t change their spots, they use funding to create Terrorists like Bin laden and Baghdadi , they ask to usually fund 1 terrorist who can lead. This is their modus operandi after one is permanently retired, they need a replacement.

          My friend, minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reached the first buildings in
          the strategic city of Al-Sukhnah, a military source told Al-Masdar News.The ultimative march for DE City started.

        • Please do not refer to Barack Hussein’s pet monster al-Baghdadi as a US terrorist. He is Barack Hussein’s terrorist.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      There are 2 groups not covered in that pocket Faylaq al Rahmn and HTS , leaving the others alone.

    I think, Syria-Iran-Hezbolah-Russia forces could go from Daama, cross Heufrates riven and reach Markadah. In this way Syria just cut any intend of USA going further south their actual position, and they be able to surround Deir Ezzor to finish once for all with these terrorists group created by USA-NATO-Israel.
