BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:55 P.M.) -The strategic situation for ISIS forces in central Syria continues to exponentially decline with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its paramilitary allies, backed up by Russian airpower, continuing to advance at the rate of liberating five to seven settlements per day.

The above map reflects the situation in central Syria following the SAA’s liberation of the towns of Zaghroutiyah, Drawayshiyah, Lawaybdah, Ghaniman and Umm Sajj earlier today.

The securing of these five settlements has translated to the liberation of about 60 square kilometers of territory in central Syria. If the current pace of this advance can be maintained by pro-government forces, then ISIS resistance throughout the region will likely be terminated within a fortnight.

In any case, it should be noted that the central Syria front nonetheless remains of secondary importance in terms of the investment of pro-government military resources. To this end, operations in and around the strategic city of Deir Ezzor continue to be of top priority.

Central Syria should not be the priority of the Syrian government forces now. ISIS are completely surrounded there and their surrender is a question of time. The most urgent and vital task for the sirvival of a unified Syrian state is the liberation of Eastern Deir Ezzur, the most resource rich area of Syria, which is being invaded, occupied and stolen by the US/Zionist colonial forces and their foreign Kurdish slaves as we speak. Unless the Syrian government forces make a move now and crosses the Euphrates river, the Syrian state will effectively cease to exist even though officially it… Read more »
