    What hell is the little dark zone at northwest of the eliminated al Safa pockett?

    • You can call me Al

      That confused me, but if you read the listing above twice (as I had to do), it states “The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) eliminated the ISIS-held pocket in the al-Safa voulcanic field” – so I am asuming that this is only one area cleared from Vermin..

      I could be wrong though.

        That little dark zone is in the Damascus desert, and there are any news of another ISIS fortified zone in the Damascus desert, there’s only the ISIS pockett in the Homs desert It’s true that ISIS little unities and even other takfiris little unities, that came from At Tanf, were several times caught in the Homs desert outside the ISIS pockett, in the red zone (under SAA control), it happened near Palmyra (in the north), at least 4 times, it happened near Abukamal, but it seems that now isn’t happen any more, and even more to south (where the hostages were recovered), but this only means that the takfiris still can travel on those parts of the Homs desert. One thing is an fortified zone and another thing is the capability of travelling in some areas, where they don’t have any fortified pockett..

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    Just that pocket in the homs desert and idlib and then finish up the eastern part of syria :)))
