Its good but it’s still looks Ugly tho

You not world eye you mental case.and was`s good in that.


Maybe I am not up to date, however, I was under the impression that Al Qamishli and Al Hasakah are under joint SAA/YPG control, so, should be identified in yellow.

George King

Your impression is wrong and there is supply connections agreed upon for both Al Qamishli and Al Hasakah.

They recruit SAA troops from there and the area should be bigger, shows how stupidly loser Kurdish PYD acted and they know their time is limited among the US. They need to make amends and return everything to Syrian Gov control and order US/NATO to leave. This will effectively put a hold on Turkey and it’s ambition.

Lets see if the cowardly hit and run zionists dare to strike Syrian forces when they decide to run the terrorists out of southern Syria.That day is coming soon.


SAA and it’s Allies now need to turn the large ISIS pocket between Al Sukhanah and Mayadin red with with the blood of those rats. Unfortunately, it looks like very difficult mountainous terrain. Hope the Iranians will deploy their bee drones, which should make life a little more easy in the coming onslaught.


I think there’s only sand there.

So did I, but either sand or mountains, they will be fighting in small groups, well dug in somehow – so taking them out will take a lot of manpower and I would assume it would be quite risky, unless the majority of the work is done by jets or planes. Personally I think it is well down the list of priorities.

It would free up more man power for the SAA and make the Deir Ezzor region more stable. I would say it is a priority a means of boosting the SAA performance elsewhere. Also, ISIS is overextended in this area, while they are dug in well in some places, in other places, there is nothing but sand. it would be wise to exploit ISIS shortages in manpower to take territory from them. This will be effective means later, to corner and destroy the ISIS force.

OK, lets hope you are right.


As its desert , water is the key . Stake out the few water wells and you will find your “rebels” . It could be done initially with surveillance cameras , drones and then troops . It would not take too much .

Hence the reason SAA and Tiger forces are re-deploying there. It is a vast area with up to 1,000 vermin holed up, I have seen reports which suggest it is only half of that. It is an area that has to be cleared out, it caused all sorts of problems when SAA and Tiger forces were advancing on Deir Az Sur. Eventually, they has to by-pass it, if you remember Yanks salvaged 20 ISIS field commanders from there who have been incorporated into SDF on the other side of the Euphrates.

Eskandar Black

The desert pocket wont require the full attention of the SAA, but it does make sense to clear it out to free up man power and to better concentrate man power on recovering property stolen by various interlopers, but at some point, someone has to clear the desert area. My estimates are that you are looking at 250 fighters, spread out over vast area. Best strategy is a simultaneous advance on multiple axis as ISIS does not have the man power to resist attacks across a broad front. In the very least, this strategy will allow you to flush out dense and dangerous ISIS pockets.. This will lead to a fast ISIS collapse.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

The ISIS head choppers work fast and captured 3 towns from HTS and there are several thousands of sleepers among these groups, Khan Sheikoun holds about 1000 alone.

Behold a Pale Horse

If the kurds want to survive, best thing they could do is go on the offensive against the Turkish occupied zones. Always attack an ambush.

Be light, mobile, fast, attack in small numbers, then retreat, dont have front lines.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
