They’re doing exactly the same thing that led to them losing Palmyra the first time; one thin, long salient. Go south and east of Qaryatayn, you idiots.

This front is a slow grind against ISUS. Perimeter N and S of Tiyas airbase is improving.
I noticed that most tigers are still up around Kiweires, this must be their higher priority along with holding Deir Ezzor. Palmyra can wait. ISUS is in a tough spot up north, Palmyra front will tie down their reserves.

But can Deir Ez Zor wait?

It is only a matter of time until the next big attack.

They can wait…. and loose the half of country.
