ISIS is now retreating faster then the SAA can advance. This is the first time ISIS has done this with the SAA as thus far they have only done it with the Kurds as part of the Yinon plan.


Keep up the great work, lads, our thoughts are with you all the time!


To keep the large uninhabited area is difficult. In the east
direction from Suwayda, is empty desert. No villages, only a few roads.
But, probably the politics negotiation is to be ready, the annex the land from
rebels and ISIS/ISIL. This is the main reason that SAA advances deeper to the empty desert…

Well and good except it doesn’t get the SAA any closer to the border like taking Arak would. At least they are fighting ISIS, the bombers of little Manchester girls.

Unlike the Americans, who appear to oppose the Syrians and are, thus, helping ISIS.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
