The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies have repelled all ISIS attacks, re-gained an area east of al-Suhkna and restored control over the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor highway.

Separetely, the SAA has started storming the ISIS stronghold of al-Mayadin in the Euphrates Valley. Government troops captured the old airport and many other points west and south of al-Mayadin.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have continued its operation against ISIS in Raqqah city. According to a SDF spokesperson, the group will take control over the city in few days. The SDF has also advanced northeast of Deir Ezzor city and seized Markadah village.

they are agressors. words do not help. send some meney to assad.


Abba had a nice song on that.


Nice report with some gaps:

Nothing about developments in and around Idlib, Qaryatayn and the report on Mayadin is overly optimistic unles it refers to the attack of three days ago, which should not be not part of an daily update.

Otherwise, very nice.

dude chill out, they doing their best smh


Hahaha, the Dutchnational thinks he can get 24 to 24 new covering. It may have been that time when the accomplice-packed “imbedded” press on the tanks could enjoy the joyous entry into Iraq under the Bush hegemony. Then everything was too predictable and pre-planned. Your friends Americans have unfortunately not quite more to say … Times have changed and so the enemy listen in, hence occasionally also holds a media embargo.

Many here would like more information incl. lowering fakes.

Those ISIS groups fled some time ago most ended up joining with ISIS in Idlib they were using LDRG tactics of meeting , which requires extensive intelligence to do. Mayadin is being flanked from all sides and Molhassan and other regions are in conflict , Tahtani region is being captured so they flank it properly.


Breaking : from several tweeteraccounts there is the news about a temporary ceasefire in Raqqah.

Prequel to surrender?


Seems IS proposed a deal through tribal forces. To let them go.

To where?

I am not certain if this is a good deal to make, on the other hand, there are the stuck civillians.

What do commenters here think?

These are no ISIS members willing to defect to SDF. They are hard core minded. So where to go? Now SDF is in order to take and feed them as war prisoners. Otherwise they will be killed if passed through to SAA OR the US takes them for any other wargames around the world. The US steadily needs willing fighters for their own interests.

Jens Holm

Thats how it is. You seemes to comment how many civilians there can be possible to have a good life again.

It is true USA needs them for Lebanon propaganda war.All the evil people belongs to USA except born against .Moffies, gays,Satanist,secret societies and sodomized.How can a man take care of other man’s ashole.Maybe to produce faeces kids.

Jens Holm

Manbij was a succes. It was impossible to hit the rest.

They can go by a minefield made of their own mines. Fine with me.
