Donate

On Oncotber 17, government troops, led by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces, started advancing towards the ISIS-held town of Moohassan located east of Deir Ezzor city, on the western bank of the Euphrates River.

The SAA advance followed the previous successes in the Deir Ezzor area that allowed government troops to start its operation in Mohassan.

According to pro-opposition sources, ISIS units are now withdrawing from the town via the Euphrates. If this is true, the SAA will declare its liberation soon.

In any case, ISIS members in Mohassan are surrounded from all directions. So, the fall of the town into the hands of the SAA is just a matter of time.

    SAA should already look for points to cross over Euphrates river. Crossing in 2 locations will be ideal. One in area Mohassan, Second more South towards Omar Oil fields and cross aver clearing the packet

    • Valery Grigoryev

      You’ve got ahead of my opinion :)

  • Zainab Ali

    kurds and isis are retreating … sdf will be in the limelight soon

  • gustavo

    The advance to Omar oil field must be fast and contundent without any mercy, do not think it twice just do it. With the protection and support or russian aerospace force can be done very well.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      who will do this?

      • Mario Ceva

        Syrian army and Hezbolla with Russian suport. Petrol is not useful for Kurds. how will export the oil or the gas if Turkey close all exit oleoducts.??

        • Solomon Krupacek

          no way.

          russia is finishing fights. listen to shoigu:

          The operation in Syria is nearing completion so some issues should be tackled immediately

            Kurds are entraped. Turkey and Syria will not a Syria kurd state. USA Israel can not do anything about.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            saa is nothing. saad has only tiger forces, the rest is shit in uniform. if saa begins something against sdf, in first step lose aleppo. this is the reason, why dont attack saa kurdish units.

          • Mario Ceva

            SAA has recover Aleppo and 80 % of all Syria.. How kurds will take Aleppo?? Kurds are still Syrian citzens for that reason are not ataccked yet. But if the want independence will be destroyed. Kurd state in Syria and Irak is not possible.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            learn to count.

            kurds are in aleppo city. in manbij. easily cut east aleppo countryside. from north fsa, from west hts. from tabqa also can attack the sdf. saa is simply outnumbered. shoygu yesterday told, the war is finished and is time to close the fights. so, russia has no interest to foght on aleppo, idlib, hama, daraa and east from euphrates. they have their bases, are satisfied.

          • Mario Ceva

            Wishfull thinking!!!

          • Mario Ceva

            will not allow Kurd state in Syria and Irak.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            russia will have big mouth and little hands. as always.

          • Mario Ceva

            Enought hands to stops ISRAEL AND USA

          • Solomon Krupacek

            i saw.

            ussr was 5x stronger and lost cold war. russia is nothing, boy. weak country, no real development.

          • Mario Ceva

            Is still developing . Has great potencial. URSS has comunism . As you know (your people develop it) is a disaster. Now Russia is capitalist same as China. Are unstoppable. Why Russia made better air defense systems and better militar planes than the USA??

          • Tudor Miron

            Wow! Now if there’s one with big mouth (keyboard) and little everything also than it is you Solomosha :)

          • Solomon Krupacek

            i see, how helped for comrade in kiev. russian are chronic betrayers.

          • Tudor Miron

            Solomon, What Sergey Kojugedovich means is that Israel’s (also UK/US) proxi jihadist army is near its grave end. Russia will not do with Surya what US just did with Kurds. At list I would never support it as a sitizen.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            this is your theory. the reality is what i describe. if russia finish the sampaign, syria remains divided.

  • Behold a Pale Horse

    SDF and SAA coordinating, can see it clearly they are creating another pocket.

  • Xanatos

    You’d think with the fall of raqqa, the SDF would be racing over eastern Syria. But the situation for the Kurds in Iraq is dire. They are massively outnumbered by the Iraqi army, and irbil needs defenses.

    The SDF WILL not be attacking Isis much anymore.
