    I expect by the end of March 2017 the battle for Jirah AB to start

    • gold37

      I think Jirah has always been their goal, they need to take it to be able to move further south. that way Aleppo air base would solely be for western Aleppo and Kweries for support when needed. Things are looking much better, I wonder with the co-operation with the Kurds, would SAA choose to put pressure on Dier Ezzor from Hasakah province?

      • Trustin Judeau

        Some people say that the goverment want to go to Tabqa city so Jirah is needed for this.The question is how long will take to capture it.But Deir Haffer is not

        • El Diablo

          Deir Hafer is not? Necessary? I think is better to capture it to relaese manpower. Palmyra is fallen in a day. Maybe ISIS will run if they thinked to be encircled in Deir Hafer.

          • Trustin Judeau

            The Tiger are reportedly planning to besiege it and move on.It seems they want to be fast/

          • El Diablo

            They know what strategy is better to be quick and lost less manpower by me :D

          • gold37

            SAA has momentum, they want to keep going to reach an objective, we have to remember that Alqaeda and co are laying low for now. The SAA and SDF co-operation is key to clearing them also.

          • El Diablo

            Al Nusra will be in internal trouble for almost some months. In my mind anywere in Aleppo province in this moment is better to made ISIS run without be involved in urban warfare if not necessary. To destroy them manpower is simplest in other situations/scenarios. I think this is quick and cheap.

    • Dejan

      By the end of Marcha Jirah AB will probably be liberates, maybe Deir er Hafer too

    • Luigi

      if the SAA reaches the Euphrates, what i think it’s their plan, it will block the west side of the river and Turkey will have to give another excuse to continue the Euphrates shield operation. Fighting ISIS will not be acceptable anymore.

      • Gary Sellars

        The Turdks are already blocked. They have no contact with any IS forces, so who are they going to fight? Attacking the SDF will risk angering the Trumpian, while attacking the SAA will bring down the wrath of God Emperor Putin I.

  • El Diablo

    Now, try to gain the lake, to encircle or made run the ISIS in the north poket.

  • gfsdyughjgd .

    Kurdish did a good think by throwing their weight behind Syrian army to eliminate the intruders.

  • Xanatos

    Taking the canal headwaters are the first priority.
    The SAA is on task to take the first one in two days. They’ll go south along the lakeshore to seize more. With the canals they can secure the farmland. Farmland is extremely important to the regime, because they lost most of theirs to these militia. Food independence, and the return of people to this land will strengthen the government.

    • PZIVJ1943

      I agree. Second map shows Kurds are already at first headwaters at Arugar. I think ISUS will try to make a stand south of the second Al Jer canal. With SDF help the SAA can concentrate to cross it and take Jirah airbase. The main Deir Hafer supply road is just south of it. Taking this would compromise the entire Daesh line!!
      GOOD WORK TIGERS!

        i love reading great analyses like this and this website!!!

  • Luigi

    the Kurds and the SAA have already made their moves, now its your turn FSA! Will you atack

  • FlorianGeyer

    It is important not to alienate the US from the Kurds too much as at the moment the US is struggling to keep the Kurds and Turkey on side. We all realise I am sure that continued US backing in a fight is never something to bet ones life on. Using the blundering US diplomatic skills to give the Kurds and Syrian an advantage precludes Turkey being the only ally left standing for the US.
