Accordign to the report, the patrol took place in the area between the town of Arima and the villages of Korhiyok, Kawikli and Jab Maxzum. All of these settlements are located west of Manibj. Two Russian armoured vehicles and 2 vehicles of the al-Bab Military Council reportedly participated in the patrol.

Hmmm, I don’t like the SDF but if they can come to some sort of accord with the legitimate Syrian government, that would help wind things down.


SDF has many different groups and people.

But they were pretty anti-Assad all the same.

Kurds coming to their senses (slowly) and HTS digging its own grave in Idlib… Lets see how it unfolds.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

The Russians are going to become the number one targets for Isis now, those patrols want to keep an eye open at all times, it’s not just for the Turkish proxies they have to worry about.

And that would give the Russians an excuse to step up attacks on them.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

If they can find them that is.

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

If the Russians can find ISIS?

Willing Conscience (The Truths

There were 4600 Isis fighter in Ar Raqqah and Al Hasakah that escaped/eluded the SDF campaign back in June/July, they just disappeared back into the countryside, the SDF hasn’t been able to find them, but they’ve been finding the SDF quite regularly lately, I think the Russians may face the same problem. Isis does still have some support in these governorates from some of the local Arab clans, not many but some.

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

Fair point, but we have to agree that Russia have a rather big and effective Intel machine, wich since 2015 have been effective in tracking down ISIS, atleast so far.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

They will eventually, but remember back in December last year Putin announced that Isis had been totally defeated in Southern Syria. 13 months after we still have Isis there.

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

That is correct, i forgot that.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
