Military Situation In Syria On July 23, 2018 (Map Update)

Donate

This map provides a general look at the military situation in Syria on July 23, 2018:

  • Pro-government forces entered a final stage of retaking parts of southern Syria, which had been controlled by the Free Syrian Army and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda). Currently, they are finalizing their operation to recover weapons from the surrendered militants and to secure the recent gains. After this, government forces will start working to liberate the small area controlled by ISIS east of the Golan Heights.
  • Most of civilians and members of the National Defense Forces (NDF) evacuated from the villages of al-Fu’ah and Kafriya in eastern Idlib. Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies entered the area.
  • Reports are appearing that the Syrian Army and its allies are preparing a military operation against militants in northern Latakia and southern Idlib. This area is used by militants to launch armed UAVs at Russian military facilities in the province of Latakia.
  • The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are slowly developing their operation against ISIS in the border area with Iraq.

    That dirty Black and Blue stain is still on the landscape of Syria,,BUT hopefully not for too much longer.

    good situation! the pocket djihadist quneitra divised in three parties

    • jorge

      With the Isis pocket, those are the four salients, all that rest of the failed buffer zone that the Israelis wanted to create.

  • The time is coming to cross the Euphrates. But do the first things first – Al Tanf!

    • John Whitehot

      seems that the Euphrates is coming home by itself without the need of crossing it.

        They can see how unreliable the US is as a protector. They sold them out to the Turks at the first opportunity. The SAA is their only hope of surviving the post war cleanup . .

      Not yet at least, but John W, also makes a good point below.

      In my view, the SDF will come back into the fold, after they get rid of the ISIS vermin.

  • Lupus

    Its time to kick the Turks and their filth out

  • SurfshackTito

    Once the Operation in Southern Syria is 100 Percent Over. (Including defeating ISIS),
    Bashar cuz should come on State TV and Announce a 2 Month Ceasefire in order to rest and prepare for Idlib operation.

    The SAA should be put in Defense Mode throughout Hama and Aleppo to prevent the militants from attempting to advance.

    • You can call me Al

      I understand what you are saying and your good intentions, but please realise that the troops are on a rotational basis. (Once complete, these troops get their well deserved rest, whilst new and refreshed ones come into the field.

        Agreed, don’t stop the steamroller now… keep on going and squash these goat-raping cockroaches into paste.

  • James

    I thought the SAA closed the pocket of ISIS in SE Syria?

    • Gary Sellars

      It’s populated with small roving IS cells, probably supplied by small scale parties infiltrating the Iraqi border from Anbar. Difficult terrain, and the cockroaches go to ground. The SAA will clean them out eventually, but for now there are bigger fish to fry.
