The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah are now in only 40km west of the last ISIS stronghold in Syria, al-Bukamal city, according to a report of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) on October 27.

Al-Bukamal is located near the Syrian-Iraqi border, on a key highway between Deir Ezzor and Baghdad.

Moreover, the Hezbollah media wing in Syria reported that ISIS begin to fortify its position inside and around al-Bukamal city due to the rapid advance of the SAA and its allies. ISIS fighters blocked all roads to the al-Bukamal and planted IEDs at  the city’s entrances.

Meanwhile, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq announced that ISIS fighters attacked the new positions of the SAA around the T-2 station west of al-Bukamal city. Amaq said that ISIS fighters destroyed a 57mm gun, a 14.5mm gun and two tanks of the SAA with ATGMs during the attack. Syrian pro-government sources said that the SAA and its allies repelled ISIS attack.

Thanks to the Iraqi Army advance along the Syrian-Iraqi order, the SAA and its allies might reach al-Bukamal city within days. However, it will for sure take more than days to capture the ISIS stronghold, especially because ISIS might has redeployed most of its fighters to it.

    As one can see clearly Syria was divided between USA-Israel (kurds), Syria and Turkey, and all of this came from a previous agreement. Let us see now after the end of ISIS-Daesh how Syria will be divided.

    Why not invite the Iraqis in to do the job? They are very close now at Al Qaem and have a big army.
