The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah are still struggling to establish control over the border city of al-Bukamal. The city is at least partly controlled by ISIS. Existing photos and videos show clashes in the area.

The SAA Tiger Forces and the National Defense Forces have started their advance agaiinst ISIS in the countryside of al-Mayadin. They have advanced about 30km and got control over Bir Daham and Tall Milhim. They are now in about 40km from al-Bukamal.

Clashes continued between the SAA and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham north and northeast of Hama city. No significant advances have been made by the sides.

Iraqi forces are now working on clearing the bank of Euphrates near the ISIS-held town of Rawah. When this is done, they will start an operation to liberate the town.

    This map again contradicts the previous map which showed the Tiger Forces closer to al-Bukamal. The Tiger forces did not advance an inch towards al-Bukamal from al-Mayadin. They instead advanced Westwords. They had been 40km away from al-Bukamal for the past month. The Tiger Forces have been trained by Russian military personnel and some Russian soldiers are embedded with them. They follow Russia’s orders. As I see it, al-Bukamal has been promised by Putin to Donald Trump. I hope I’m wrong, really. But all things point that way. Even the excuses being brought by the Russian ministry of defence, which though true are unacceptable, because Rusua has the legitimate right to be in Syria while the US and co do not and are there as invaders and occupiers according to international law.

      Why is the Euphrates River the demarcation line that Syria won’t cross? You can’t get a clearer picture of how the northern and western border of Eretz Israel (Greater Israel) is being established. Once ISIS is pushed out and the border is set, Lebanon is under belly of Syria that will be attacked. It is through Lebanon that Damascus will be overthrown.

      You are wrong and you will understand in a few days.

    I do not know why it has been taken SO LONG for tiger forces to go from Al-Mayadin to AL-Bukamar. I have tried to find a good military reason and couldn’t find it. It looks like this is making on purpose.

    only a minor portion of ground is left in isis hands…..sooner or later they will be wiped out….whatever help US provides. In Iraq as well. Iraq has a very modern army and endless resources (bought for oil at huge prices from US). Their job is, military speaking, easier. Then im curious what will happen. Obviously SAA will focus on HTS ….but will Israel just stand and watch ?i think they will escalate….they missed the oportunity with Kurds starting a war against Iraq….no they wont hasitate to attack Iran…together with Saudis….hell will break loose thanks to the troublemakers in the area
