    Waooh, impressively fast! They took time before launching the operation, but then it was a Blitzkrieg!

      That was my first thought. Usually urban fighting takes months against suicidal die-hards. Maybe the operation was already won by starving them out the months before in an encirclement while they were dealing with Mosul.

        What is with the pocet to the right. Neither government and kurds seem interested – why?

      Most of them have been ordered by their master Israel to Syria to fight the SAA

    Tal Afar pocket and Qalamoun pocket on the Lebanese border both collapse on the same day. It is a good day! Could add Palmyra North pocket to that as well. A great day!

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      The North pocket fell yesterday and they restarted the attack in the pocket in Damascus capturing 7 buildings , and the southern border seen it’s biggest advance this week 200 km2 and the capture 3 more town and villages including post 164. They are getting closer to Al Tanf and we will see how the US responds then.

    This is what happens when you let the PMU fight instead of force them to babysit on the perimeter.

      No actually, this is what happens when you let the bulk of IS soldiers retreat from the battlefield. You gain fast, because there are a dozen left to fight with rifles.
