Tiger Forces Capture Umm Adasah Khaliliyah, Set Control Of Deir Hafer-Mahdum Road

Donate

The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces, backed up by Syrian and Russian warplanes, recaptured the town of Umm Adasah Khaliliyah from the ISIS terrorist group in the province of Aleppo and set control over the Deir Hafer-Mahdum road.

By doing this, the Tiger Forces cut off the key ISIS supply line to the group’s stronghold of Deir Hafer and set a foothold for further operation to encircle this city.

Now, government forces will likely develop momentum in the directions of Tell Akoulah and Abu Maqbarah as-Saghirah in order to secure this important area east of Deir Hafer.

Yesterday, government troops seized the village of Jafrah and got a fire control of this important road.

    Maybe they should strike further to the east instead of north towards Deir Hafer. If they strike towards the Jirah airbase ISIS would have to give up Deir Hafer without a fight or risk encirclement. If the SAA goes towards Tell Akoulah and forces ISIS out of Deir Hafer after a lengthy fight the next focal point would still probably be the Jirah airbase. Either way the next fight will be at the airbase. Might as well skip one battle and go straight to the next.

      True, hopefully they have the manpower to do it

    There is some report that SDF launched a naval invasion across the Euphrates river using a boat landing/airdrop on the other side of the Euphrates river near tabqah. I don’t think it been confirmed yet.

  • Trustin Judeau

    TF are going tho Hama . Fuck NDF

      Yesterday I said that SAA is in trouble and Damascus and Hama risk falling
      jihadists are attacking Latakia today and also prepare the counter-offensive on Aleppo.

      • Trustin Judeau

        SAA is not trouble in Damascus nor Latakia . Al Toilet gains in Damascus are 90 percent reversed and Latakia is well defended . Damascus didnt fall in 2012 when the situation was dire so it wont fall in 2017

      • gfsdyughjgd .

        Israel is also attacking anytime and Erdogan is going to attack Allepo and Manbij because USA has already escape over Eufrate river to make way for Erdogan attack and blocking the Russian way to Raqqa.

    US+Israel+Europe+Saudi Arabia+Qatar+Jordan+Turkey VS Russia+Iran
    The Assad fate was predictable. US and Israel are funding the Iranian Kurds

    if Iran had the bad idea to send more militia to Syria…

    • Trustin Judeau

      Assad is finished – 2012 .Be more innovative .

  • gold37

    Once Hama offensive is suppressed again, SAA needs to focus on two things, 1 – having a second supply route to Aleppo, via Abu al- Duhur airbase. 2 – Clear the Homs-Hama border of ISIS. Eastern Aleppo and Aleppo in general should be fine because Liwa al Quds, SAA, NDF, Desert Hawks and I would assume some units of Tiger Forces are there as well. Have not heard much from Tiger Force team 6 since they lifted the siege on Kweiris. This is merely a minor setback, the momentum on Palmyra and Eastern Alepppo needs to be maintained!

    • Trustin Judeau

      NDF again showed how bad they are .The goverment must put soldiers there not NDF

      • gold37

        That is true, NDF has always been a bit below par. Sending the Tigers there is a bad move in my opinion, maybe send some Tigers, some Desert Hawks and some Marines. Instead of just the Tigers, they are close to Raqqah and opening a new front to Deir Ezzor from the North West.

        • Trustin Judeau

          NDF is Iranian creation .This is why SAA still use them because Iran pressures the govemrent .They are worthless – Palmyra was very good example and now this .

          • gold37

            I think there needs to be more Iranian militia in Syria for a 6 month period or so, these are pivotal times and can’t lose territory this easily. preferably Homs-Hama border, just to clear that area and then they can go back to wherever they want to. I am not a big fan of the Iraqi militia, during the liberation of Aleppo, they found it hard to take Sheikh Sa’eed. Maybe because it was well defended and trying to save manpower or simply a tactic of moving forward and retreating since the enemy was surrounded.

          • Trustin Judeau

            NDF is too corrupt . They are not like Hezbollah . They dont have any motivation .

          • Trustin Judeau

            BTW Hama can become big problem . AAS will launch another offensive

          • Derapage

            In the meantime, while you are arguing with each other (mostly dreams), jihadist terrorists reached the gates of Hama

          • gold37

            Mate, you need to understand the difference between arguing and a conversation.

        • Derapage

          HTS backed by turks is preparing the offensive on Aleppo front.

      • gfsdyughjgd .

        Send NDF to serious fights to acquire skills.More combat is the only way to make them capable or air drop them in ISIS SOTHAT THEIR CAN DEFEND THEM SELFS.

  • Khang Tiger

    why didn’t SAA train more well trained divisions like TF or Desert Hawk ?. Iam afraid thay TF will be exhausted , lose so much irreplacable soldiers and can’t continue to fight

    • Derapage

      Because nobody wants to join SAA and half syrian people now lives in EU.

      • Trustin Judeau

        You are so wrong .6 millions are the Syrians living in outside countries

        • Solomon Krupacek

          that is the bitter truth

          • Trustin Judeau

            It is not . He is lying for the second . 6 million Syrians live in outside countries . Only 2 in Europe . This is not half of the population . If he is game developer no wonder why today games suck

          • Thegr8rambino

            Hahahha savage!

      • gfsdyughjgd .

        This are the people Erdogan uses to threaten the whole of Europe.

  • gfsdyughjgd .

    The only way forward is for Syria Tiger ad Hezbollah fighters to divide the SAA forces in bataljons of 25 and intensify air raids on hot spots.The combination of kurds ,Tigers and Hezbollah will turn the tables.Russia must call on China,North Korea and Pakistan to defend already liberated towns and cities.Not my best friend Erdogan.

    • Thegr8rambino

      That would be awesome if China entered the war on Syria’s side. It would really speed up this fight to victory!

  • Dejan

    I realy dont know wtf is wrong with Russia, whole eastern Syria will fall to USA

    • Thegr8rambino

      I don’t know about that, it’s mostly desert anyway, besides SAA has been kicking a$$ recently, theyre about to take deir hafer and then jirah airbase :D

  • Spunkyhunk

    I (and others) have been saying over and over again: The MOST IMPORTANT thing is to decimate the jihadi manpower – to kill as many jihadis (and supporters) as possible. Especially since, the Syrian government side itself is short of manpower. That is why allowing surrounded jihadis to leave safely with their lives and weapons to join other jihadis, recuperate, reorganize, rearm and then return to attack again, was and is a VERY BAD IDEA. That is why agreeing to ceasefires whenever you are about to destroy a large front of the enemy somewhere, was and is a VERY BAD IDEA. That is why allowing large enclaves and “pockets” of jihadis to persist in the middle of your core territory, was and is a VERY BAD IDEA. But everytime we say these things, IDIOTS on this website pop up saying it’s a great idea to let jihadis retreat to Idlib unmolested; that Sun Tzu said to leave an opening for the enemy; that Great Chessmaster Putin Knows What He’s Doing with the ceasefires and wooing Erdogandog, etc., etc., etc.

    Well, ENJOY, MORONS!

    • Thegr8rambino

      I agree and it might seem idiotic to us, but maybe the generals and commanders on the ground know better. At least I hope so. Maybe forcing them to fight to the last jihadi would be rather costly in terms of casualties. But who knows. I hope its for the better.
