    The map looks pretty. Very well. I won’ t be astonished if SAA and allies will reach al Bukamal by the end of next week and finally start their march on DE City from Euphrates (Maadan) and Soukhna after clearing the Central Syria pockets in their back to ensure the supply lines to the fronts in the east.

  • Serious

    Go SAA. Liberate your country from us sunnis terrorists, kurds traitors and us terrorism.

    KURDISH TRASH, from Al Masdar News:
    “According to Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) spokesman Talal Silo, the strategic interests of the United States in Syria dictates that its forces will continue to occupy the northern regions of the country, in collusion with Kurdish separatist wishes, for many decades to come.

    According to the SDF representative, Washington will continue to develop its strategic policies in SDF-occupied northern Syria via various military and economic cooperation initiatives with Kurdish-dominated political structures that have been established under the Democratic Union Party (PYD) long after ISIS in gone.

    In the past, Silo has openly admitted that the SDF is a tool of American foreign policy in Syria and that the alliance group is forbidden by its US handlers from cooperating with either the Damascus government or Russia.”

    Kill Silo and all the other traitors. Your time will come gypsy.

      That’s US “democracy”. XD.

        …and traitorous behavior of gypsies. It seems that they will take the false chioce and therefore bring Syria and Turkey in one row against them. For Syria it is equal: with Kurds against turkish invaders for a federal state with kurds or with Turks against kurdish land grabbers to kick kurds out of arab lands. In this case Syria only has to ensure by negotiations that Turkey will leave when their border is secured.

          The SAA should play the Turkish card right now…..The Kurds are disgraceful traitors and slaves of the USA, and Turkey can´t allow an independent Krudish state on its Southern border. The SAA should move to the East quickly now, seize the oil fields near DeirZor and enhance their presence in Hasakah and Quamishli

          • Wahid Algiers

            I wonder if the Turks could be a good military partner. The are only operating with

            conscripts and their unable FSA trash. Getting the oil fields at the eastern part of the Euphrates in Deir Ezzor will depend on US and the Russian talks. Otherwise the fucken yankees will down bombs on syrian troops. The kurds are no reliable partner. You are right. The best will be to try it together with Turkey and hoping that they fulfill their parts (fighting the kurds, retreating FSA trash from SAA, withdraw after the work is done from syrian territories while leaving FSA trash alone with SAA).

    • Moussa Saab

      Lol! What economy will this Kurdistan have? They are going to grow wheat and have some oil? Who are they going to sell it to? Turkey in the North, Syria in the South and west, Iraq on the east. Good luck U.S.A with “economic ties”

      • Wahid Algiers

        In fact. The kurds will have nothing to offer than donkey shit.

  • Leon Auguste

    Jig saw puzzle!

  • χρηστος

    go SAA

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    Now both pockets are closed and they will have 10’s of thousands of troops freed up to take their country back and show the US/Coalition the door.

  • Antonovs

    Love the encirclement tactic. That black part in the middle will be filled with lots of dead jihadists.
