 Syria: ISIL Suffers Heavy Casualties in Kurdish Fighters' Advances in Raqqa

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continued the anti-ISIL Euphrates Rage Operation in Western Raqqa and managed to drive the terrorists out of more neighborhoods in al-Tabaqa city, killing over 40 of them.

The SDF engaged in heavy fighting with ISIL in al-Tabaqa city and managed to take control of the neighborhoods of al-Nababeleh, al-Zahra and al-Wahab, killing 23 militants.

In the meantime, the Kurdish fighters managed to push ISIL back from al-Wahabah and Radio Station in al-Tabaqa, killing 20 militants and capturing 10 others.

In relevant developments in the province on Tuesday, the SDF stormed ISIL's defense lines and took full control over the villages and settlements of Kabash al-Sharqi, Um al-Tonok, Rayan, Tishrin farm, Mosheirehe al-Shamaliyeh, Mosheirefeh al-Janoubiyeh, al-Rahiyat, Beir Jarbou, Jarwa, al-Hattash, Hazimeh, Khalwa Abideh, Holo Abd, Abareh, al-Kaleteh, Sukriyeh and Zohra, inflicting major losses on ISIL.

The Kurdish forces also won back a key neighborhood in the Southern sector of Tabaqa city following a large advance on its Western urban.

In the meantime, the SDF managed to seize control over the Alexandria suburb, and now the Kurds have swept through the adjacent Wahab neighborhood.

Kurdish forces also secured the island of Jazirat al-Ayd, a few kilometers North of Lake Assad.

According to latest reports, around 40% of Tabaqa city has been brought under Kurdish control with just a few hundred ISIL militants left in its Northern sector and around the city center.

Short in the Middle East - Colonel Cassad

1. In the Northern Hama, the front stabilized. The militants, having retreated after the setbacks of mid-April, rested in the area of ​​El-Latamin and Morek, which affected the pace of the AAA offensive, which is now bogged down in battles for settlements south of El Latamin and southeast of Morek. If in these battles the SAA can grind the main forces of the militants, then the Syrians will have good prospects for accessing the central areas of Idlib. However, I would not go ahead - the militants have now pulled everything in here (although some of the forces delayed the advance of the SAA to the west of Aleppo), so it will not be possible to grind them quickly.

2. In connection with the increased attacks by the Turkish army on the Kurds, the US drove the units of the 75th Ranger Regiment to the border of Rozhava with Turkey in order to demonstrate the American flag, at least partially cover the Kurds from Erdogan.

The US clearly does not intend to meet the wishes of Erdogan, who wants to take the place of the main US ally in northern Syria instead of the Kurds. Moreover, the more he attacked the Kurds, the more pronounced was the position of Washington, in which militarily weaker but loyal loyal Kurds seem more preferable to American plans than the Turkish army, coupled with the chaotic Erdogan. Such a position of the United States hardly pleased Ankara, since the words of approval from Trump are one thing, but the real US policy in Syrian Kurdistan is quite another. The blows of the Turks look like an act of irritation, as obviously they can not cause a significant damage to the military potential of the Kurds sitting on the supply from the Americans.

3. Israel having struck at the warehouse of Hezbollah, who receives weapons from Iran, continues to insist that he is in his right. Russia, judging by its position, seeks to distance itself from Israel's long-running conflict with Iran. It's clear that there is an opportunity to shoot Israeli planes, but there is obviously no political solution. If Damascus and Tehran are dissatisfied with such a position of the Russian Federation, then it is not publicly manifested, moreover, Iran in recent negotiations with the Ministry of Defense, stated that fruitful cooperation with Russia will only strengthen, which may indicate that the Israeli attacks On Hezbollah, are considered unfortunate, but not critical, since the Lebanese in the Syrian war and so well blended with technology (Syrian, Iranian, Russian), so that the losses from Israeli strikes can be attributed to collateral damage. At the same time, Assad's intentions to strengthen his air defense, for which there has been talk for a long time, may indicate that Damascus was attacked by Israel's attacks, but in order not to expose Russia to the conflict with Israel, self-defense measures will be applied by the SAA. Another question is that Israel is extremely nervous about even the idea of ​​supplying air defense systems to Iran, and even about the supply of Assad's air defense systems and the very possibility of responding to Hezbollah's bombing, may lead to further Israeli involvement in the Syrian war, where Hesballah strikes indirectly The use of various jihadist groups with which Hezbollah is fighting in Syria. In general, I do not think that this history will lead to a serious conflict between Israel and Russia, but the relations between Israel and Iran in connection with this will only worsen. Hesball's weapons will somehow be received-since Assad's own infantry is not enough, the Lebanese will not be neglected, especially since they are fighting quite well. Any better than local militias or some Afghan "Fatamyunov". Israel will somehow have to accept that, following the outcome of the Syrian war, Hezbollah will seriously strengthen its positions and expand its military capabilities.

4. In Deir ez Zor, the Syrians have a good day. During the fighting in the cemetery area and the 137th military base, more than 30 militants were buried, and several dozen militants were injured.

The militants unsuccessfully descended into the attack, received a tough rebuff, and then the counterattack of the Syrians, but in general this is a tactical success.

The operational situation continues to be severe, the enclave is still cut, the supply is rather limited, but so far there is enough. On the 27th, Russian military transport aircraft dropped 62 tons of cargo into the enclave.
