The Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division – backed by the 60th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division and National Defense Forces (NDF) – have made the necessary preparations to restart the important offensive to liberate the International Highway between Palmyra and the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

According to a member of the 67th Brigade, the Syrian Armed Forces will be attacking the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists from two different flanks: T-3 Pumping Station and International Road.

The T-3 Pumping Station attack by the Syrian Armed Forces will seek to block the ISIS militants from sending reinforcements and supplies  to the Palmyra (Tadmur) front via the city of Abukamaal.

While one unit attacks the T-3 Pumping Station, the main force from the Syrian Arab Army will launch an assault at the integral desert-town of ‘Arak, which is located along the International Highway.

If ‘Arak is liberated, then the Syrian Armed Forces will be within striking distance of the oil rich town of Al-Sukhanah; this site is the location of the last ISIS position before the Deir Ezzor border.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Arak the Desert Town.
Have a look at Google Maps.
If you come in after 350 Meters in the Length (around 190 Meters in the other direction) you will come out.

A very Big Town (may be 20 Housing Blocks) in the Middle of Nowhere.
