BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) is in serious trouble inside their stronghold of Deir Hafer, as the Syrian Arab Ary (SAA) surrounds this key town from several flanks.

Last Monday, the Syrian Arab Army kicked off their field operations south and east of the Kuweires Military Airport, with their end goal being the partial encirclement of the Islamic State forces at Deir Hafer.

Within 48 hours, the Syrian Arab Army had already advanced within 4km of Deir Hafer’s western flank, while also liberating a number of villages along the Jabboul Lake front to the south.

Now, the Syrian Arab Army has the town surrounded from three different flanks, leaving the Islamic State forces with only one way out of Deir Hafer via the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

ISIL will have to make the decision in the coming days to either abandon the town in favor of a safe retreat towards the Maskanah Plain or face annihilation at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces, who are steadily pushing to cutoff the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

Translation does not work for this. English readers miss the fun.

The best is to surround them, so there will no more additional manpower to attack at others places.
Clean all until Maskanah and kill them one by one in Deir Hafer.

Yes absolutely. Plus harass them with all possible means.

Plus take videos from drones of the ensuing rabbit hunt.

Nope Nope
Because DH is very well fortified, ISIS will not leave. They will fight until the end. SAA should stop pushing from the south, and put a high pressure on the west side.
So wait and see, may be SAA will in a way, or in another 🙂

Leave autobahn 4 open and take the villages to the South.
Maybe IS commanders get cold feet when SAA gets near Maskanah. Blink.

Yes – the feeling is do it – take revenge, kill – but the brain must say no. IMHO SAA generals will not take such a hate bait. A good tactic was Aleppo and better yet al-Bab and other places. Let them go. That saves the infra structure of the town for peace. Let them go. If the attacker can avoid it he must not do frontal assault to take a well prepared city with trenches, tunnels and all. Let them go. Bomb the leaving columns by plane. Send raiders and mine the roads. Try to get them with your… Read more »

El ejercito debe seguir avanzando y tomar posición a lo largo de la carretera, una ves que huyan simplemente acabar con ellos en el camino.
