    SAA must not let terrorists to close border with Iraq, how they make so big progress in desert?? Just How!?!!?

    • Just “Syrian”

      it’s a big dessert there’s no key areas or cities in there so the colors doesn’t mean they control all of that territory..beside that isis is retreating from those areas to fight SAA and SDF on other fronts

      • dutchnational

        Completely correct. In a way a stupid move as it makes them very vulnarable there unless they can reinforce heavily.

      • Wally

        Unless they can get those two airports.

    • dutchnational

      As small group took a small village, maybe small city, in empty desert and all the area to the south and east are colored in. As soon as the SDF or SAA or IS even mount an attack on that village, the region will change color again.

      All three mentioned parties have an interest in taking the area for the nearing end game.

    • Jonathan Cohen

      The border is already closed to SAA and has been for years, except for possible trade through SDF region. A change in control from ISIS to FSA/US will only mean civilian relief and trade in Dier Ezzor and hopefully an inactive front or ceasefire there while everyone fights ISIS. No loss there to anyone but ISIS.

        The KRG block SDF approach unless Sinjiar stays with YBS and tal afar is liberated and hawjia pocket you can get a lock with Iran and Iraq.

      Its just dessert my friend… Wait until they reach the crossroads or the nearby airfields…. They will not manage to capture it in that short time as they do the dessert…

  • Wally

    And many of you though SDF was going to be in that region I told you the Jordanians will use their “FSA moderates”.

    • Jonathan Cohen

      Anyone have an update or tabqa airbase reconstruction??? old articles said it should reopen right about now. When can it land c-5 with M-1s????

  • Ronald

    The good news is Russia backed up the Afrin Kurdish .

  • Ghostavenger

    lets get serious…too many lives lost already. Divide the country and give some to FSA and Kurds and Palestinians in semi autonomous regions but having a representative in Damascus federal govt. Al Assad will not find peace in his country unless he is willing to compromise, that is his best option. Say no and this war continues until he is assassinated or bombed. There is no way US or the West are going to pack up and leave the opposition to al Assad in the lurch. Oh and also fact that petrodollar will go another step to be saved…next target Iran. But for now, Syrians better something than nothing.
