Amaq Agency released a video on Friday showcasing ISIS artillery units in the mountains northeast of Palmyra using D-30 Howitzers to target the government-held Palmyra Airbase.

Despite losing control of the ancient city to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) last week, a significant number of jihadist fighters are still present around Palmyra’s outskirts.

Meanwhile, the SAA continued its military operations in the desert terrain of eastern Homs with overwhelming air support from Russia. Neither side gained any ground today.

Next, Syrian government forces hope to retake the Palmyra Silos and Al-Mahr Gas Field, thus gradually establishing a buffer zone around the famed city.

It’s OK. Now the US is actually fighting ISIS, the USAF will be along real soon now to blow them to smithereens (not).

Much more likely to have French action there : with 10 Rafales in Jordan, they’re the best placed to intervene there, well, if ever CENTCOM call them into action : pilots complain they barely are asked for just a mission per week by CENTCOM. I bet they spend more time night-clubbing in Amman or Tel-Aviv coz, thx to CENTCOM, war is boring…

It’s already considered that there would be so much jamming, EMP etc if now, there was peer warfare between some big nations, that you may not expect any communications, AWACS support, etc. Several having an ASAT (anti satellite) capabilities, don’t even hope to remote control your drone, the only case that they may be OK would be a short rang control if they are controlled from… Read more »
