Strategic changes in central Syria - Colonel Cassad

Yesterday, a huge territory was cleared south of the Palmyra-Tijas route, which has great strategic consequences. The southern flank of the leading offensive group in the Palmyra area has been secured, the threat of raids from the south to the communication lines of the advancing group has been eliminated, all the threat to El-Karateinu has been completely eliminated, the militants in East Kalamun are completely cut off from their "colleagues" operating in the Jordanian border area, For the further liberation of the central and southern regions of Syria + one should expect the activation of the SAA operations in Eastern Homs to cut off the ledge to the north of Tiyas.

The territory was occupied without large battles, the Caliphate openly began to withdraw troops to the east, and the SAA began to occupy a few settlements and road interchanges, which strengthens the position of Assad in central Syria. Along the way, aviation worked on retreating fighters, crushing one of the columns. After recent successes, Assad controls the maximum territory since 2014 and there is every reason to believe that in the near future, he will continue to grow liberated territory.

By the end of the spring of 2017, it turned out that the Caliphate did not have enough strength to keep large areas and defend its large cities, so the Baghdadi mini empire is starting to shrink more and more, which can not but rejoice. However, it is too early to write off the Caliphate, where he will be able to concentrate significant forces, he is still quite capable of delivering powerful enough blows, including operational targets.

Simultaneously, the advancement of the SAA continues along the Syrian-Jordanian border. It is quite obvious that the Russian-Iranian coalition uses the fact that the truce in Astana makes it possible to throw serious forces against the Caliphate, sharply increased its military presence in central and southern Syria, as a result of which huge territories are often freed even without serious resistance from the enemy. Of course, all these huge colored "dumplings" on the map, in practice, boil down to control over a fairly rough road network and a few townships. But at the same time, the control of this territory approximates the task of establishing control over part of Syria's state border and at the same time accelerates the expulsion of the forces of the Caliphate from South Syria, and also creates further prerequisites for the development of the operation with the goal of the de-blockade of Deir ez Zor.

At the same time, the advance of the SAA east of Aleppo is developing. The army continues to "fold" the militants' front south of Jira air base, accentuated by advancing to the south, which will lead to the elimination of the threat from the Caliphate for the route Hanasser-Aleppo. At the same time, the militants' defense in the settlements on the southern bank of the Euphrates is being hacked, with the prospect of moving towards the American enclave near Tabka.

In general, things are going. We can visually observe how the political gains achieved by Russia and Iran in Astana, in practice, are converted into significant changes on the fronts of the Syrian war.

And this is not the last pleasant change on the map of the Syrian fronts, which we will see in the coming months. However, it is always worth remembering that it is possible to intensify military operations in Hama, west of Aleppo, in East Gut and Deraa (where the fighting itself did not cease), which may require the SAA and its allies to reduce the rate of offensive operations and the transfer of part of the forces to More traditional fronts. Well, about Deir-ez-Zor should not be forgotten, the enclave is still in a very difficult situation. But while there is a kind of window of opportunity, they need to use the maximum, which strengthens both the positions of Assad and the Russian-Iranian coalition.

"Assad must leave," "Russia flees Syria," and all that ...
