>Islamic State regains control over Ghazal Village in Northern Countryside of Aleppo
>They also claim to have taken 6 prisoners near Kweires airbase
>ISF claims IS may have launched some type of offensive Salahudeen Province, several VBIED attacks
That's all I got for now, looks like this is going to be a slow day.
Images from the ongoing skirmishes in Salahudeen province.
SAA captured the village of Surayb in eastern Aleppo, typical back and forth village capturing for the Aleppo front.
SAA capture a village:
>Lmao stupid kuffar, it's just typical back and forth
SAA lose a village:
>NUSARYI DOGS BTFO! SAA IS GARBAGE, RUSSIAN AIRSTRIKES HAVE DONE NOTHING!!! TACKBIR!!!
It's hard to believe there are actual terrorist lovers on /k/, but goat fuckers gotta fuck goats
I doubt anyone believes that, I for one did not state that. What I'm saying is its the typical back and forth motion that happens on the Aleppo front. No need to be butthurt about the real tactical situation assad fanboy, I'm just saying nothing will come of this.
Basically I agree with OPs statement that it's a slow news day. There are several hot areas like Harbinafsah on the Hama side of the northern Homs pocket where the SAA is trying to progress into the pocket from the Hama side inside of the southern end.
The SAA has taken over Deir Al-Fardis which is close to Harbinafsah.
-Sheikh Maskin , Daara- competing claims. I think the SAA gained a couple of city blocks there. Not the "70% of the city". I would estimate 50% at most.
-Eastern Ghouta- not much , some clashes by the central prison again
-western Ghouta-heavy fighting bombing , unclear results
-Salma, Latakia with little from the government side, rebels claim they ambushed and killed some SAA in the surroundings. As I was typing 3 different pro rebel sources have claimed there was a large death toll in this ambush.(I will be following up on this)
-SAA continues to move closer to Al Bab today
Lastly is the results from Khan Touman yesterday as a Iragi Shia militia on the front took heavy loses in a Jaf advance in the area. Pic included. The Iranians are using them as cannon bait again.
another picture from the Touman front , the Iraqi shia militia that was hit flag is in it.
And here is the latest map of the SAA approach to Al bab. That's it for now
If anyone is interested in the JaN video with the Iraqi corpses
IS released a video recently (a day or two ago) from Deir ez Zor, but the archive is down, had some interesting footage.
Oh they captured one of them. There is no gloating to had here. This Iraqi militia was pure cannon bait. The Iranians love the "just throw numbers" at them tactic.
At least they aren't covered in carpets
>Qatar bombing soon
There are also reports that the Mosul Dam is in such a bad shape that they are afraid it will break in the spring, I hope IS doesn't drive a VBIED onto it.
A little of both, depend of the situation or time. They can use them to ask money or in prisoners exchange, or they ceremonially kill them, like they did after capturing Abu Al Dohur.
But should be noted, that the killing of the 60 SAA POW's in Al Dohur, was some days after that the SAA killed an Al Qaida big shot. So, it was probably something like a revenge.
I see ManDick is leaving his name off, the only skewed information that comes into these threads are from retards like you. Nobody here thinks Jihadist fighters are good in any way, we've all seen what radical Islam can do to countries. However following a complex, many-sided civil war with massive geopolitical implications is what most here are trying to do. I don't know why I'm trying to explain this to a retard like you but sometimes you shitposters make no fucking sense.
>I-If you're not part o-of the Assad and Russian b-bashing club, then get out REEEEEEEE!!!
Nice damage control there, I didn't know I had to be a namefag if I disagree with your opinions
>YOU'RE NOT BASHING ASSAD? REEEEEEEE GET OUT
Lmao how bout no
Al-Nusra commander, Abu Ubaydah Atareb is confirmed dead!
GOOD LUCK ASSAD GOOD LUCK SAA
Personally, I don't think that Al Safira is at risk of attack. ISIS tried to make a huge offensive against Al Safira, that was when the SAA was still in their way to relieve the Kweires airbase.
The SAA garrison in Safira was very big at the time, and the ISIS attack to the city was kicked back in less than two days.
Those ISIS positions near Safira, are very quiet, and are probably hold by small contingents.
>There are also reports that the Mosul Dam is in such a bad shape that they are afraid it will break in the spring, I hope IS doesn't drive a VBIED onto it.
Why? It'll may affect government controlled riverside centers down the Tigris, but Mosul and the immediate area IS holds control of will bear the biggest brunt of the deluge. It makes just about much sense as IS in Syria intentionally rupturing Tishrin Dam or Taqba Dam.
>job market is so shit, they'd willingly fight in a frighteningly brutal theater
That is really sad. I almost wish the U.S. had given them massive civil projects during withdrawal to keep them employed for months instead of billions of dollars worth of military hardware that ended up being useless.
Not only were they useless but actually counterproductive since the cowardly and ridiculously incompetent Iraqi military just fled and gave all that military hardware over to Isis, who then used it to further push their shit in, and other people's shit too.
U HAVE BEEN VISITED BY A BRAVE WARRIOR OF ISLAM

U MUST HELP HIM ON HIS QUEST TO DISPOSE INFIDELS, COPY N PASTE THIS TOO 5 OTHER THREADS……………… OR YOU'RE HOUSE WILL BE BOMBED BY ISIS AT SUNRISE…
to go off my old post
>rebels claim they ambushed and killed some SAA in the surroundings
JAN hit a couple of Zil trucks near Salma. A minor ambush after getting thoroughly beaten out of the city.
-Sheikh Maskin, Daara - this time rebels claim small gains so I continue my estimate at 50/50 on control of the city
-Harbinafsah is still hot after the SAA again tried to move on the city after taking Deir Al-Fardis yesterday.
Video is Ruaf dropping supplies to SAA held Deir Ezzor under attack by IS today
These cargo planes are massive.
Read interesting news on Arab Source, about the SAA advancing against ISIS positions east of the itriyah khanasser highway. Anything about it on your sources? I'm trying to figure if this could be something big, or just small thing.
all important military points are colored red on his maps. Places like the infantry academy were major battles in the past. On that note i didn't know IS still controlled the academy.
I am not much of a air force guy. I imagine it's similar to bombing a location but with supplies instead. It's always a risk to air drop supplies.
