Speaking of Kishmah, i wonder how the frontlines to the east of it looks like. There was reports two days ago of fighting in Sha‘fah or atleast the outskirts and that SDF made their way there through the desert (duhh). Controlling the cliffs overlooking Kishmah and Sha‘fah would give SDF good vantage points over the towns speeding up the capture.

If ISIS doesn't do more of these raids to keep SDF away, SDF could cut off Kishmah from Sha'Fah.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has yet to enter the city of Manbij in the northeastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, a military source in the area told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.
According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army is deployed at the outskirts of Manbij, but they have not been given clearance to enter the city from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
The source said that a joint Syrian Arab Army and Russian military delegation did enter Manbij to meet with the Syrian Democratic Forces, but they have since left the city and returned to the nearby town of Al-Arimeh.
He would add that their troops are currently on standby and awaiting orders to enter the city.

>>195145 It's probably bullshit, doubt the SAA would go all the way to the Euphrates on such a thin line without supply lines through Manbij. Besides, the frontlines north of Manbij are along a river, doubt the t*rks will launch their TFSA offensive starting with crossing a river.
Is the insurgency so strong on SDF's side of the river because it's easier for ISIS to recruit arabs to fight k*rds/burgers than it is to get them to fight the government? Is it because the mukhabarat is doing such a good job, or just SDF/burgers doing a sloppy job (maybe intentionally even)?

Until the writing of this text (16:00, Friday), the SAA forces have not entered the city of Manbij, and all the news about the SAA forces entering the city is lie or incorrect.
On Friday, The General Command of the Syrian Armed Forces, with publishing a statement, gave news about Syrian army forces entering the city of Manbij in northeast of Aleppo province
An important news which led to a vast wave of reactions from media activists; but the truth is a little bit different from what is published in the news.
The issue of SAA’s presence in regions, which are under the control of the Kurds around Manbij and eastern Euphrates, have a long history. The important point is that the Syria’s kurds have never destroyed all the bridges behind them for negotiating with Damascus, and the negotiations, despite its up and downs, have always been going on.
Also during these past days because of the things that happened and the current changes in the region, Kurd’s negotiations with Damascus have entered in a new chapter and different than what have been going on before.
Although the details of the negotiations have not been published officially, however, understanding it, based on field changes, is not a difficult task for those who follow the developments of Syria.
It seems that agreement between the government and the Kurds will implemented in couple of stages and every stage will be dependant on joint decisions and according to existing capacities, and until it is executable.
So in its first stage we witnessed the campaign of Syrian Army towards the town of Arimah in west of Manbij; during the many denies (that the SAA is not present) the SAA’s forces deployed in Arimah.
Of course last year in March the SAA forces have been deployed in western countryside of Arimah in order to prevent the influence of Turkey’s militias, which back in those days they were advancing towards Arimah under the Turkish army’s operation called “Euphrates Shield”. so the presence of Syrian forces around Arimah was not a new subject, and isn’t.
And in the second stage of agreement between Syrian government and the Kurds, the SAA forces have strongly began their next step towards entering the city of Manbij and they will deploy in contact lines of Kurds (Manbij Military Council) with Turkey’s militias in northern areas of Manbij. the strong step of SAA is the published announcement of the General Command of the Syrian Armed Forces!
Until the writing of this text (16:00, Friday), the SAA forces have not entered the city of Manbij, and all the news about the SAA forces entering the city is lie or incorrect.
Today a delegation of Syrian and Russian forces entered the city and talked with “Manbij Military Council” members and left the city once the talks ended, but the SAA forces have not yet entered the city.
Although the people in the city are hoisting the flag of Syria on the roof of their houses, and obviously the SAA will enter Manbij.
In fact, The Syrian Armed Forces with publishing an official statement, saying that the army have entered Manbij, made Turkey and Erdogan to understand and warned them that the government is determined to take back the occupied regions, and the way for another foreigner to enter Syria is closed.
So that was the reason that Erdogan today, after this news, stated that the SAA have began a psychological warfare inside of Manbij, and that the parties must not do provocative actions.
He said that our goal is to give YPG a lesson, and we don’t want to disintegrate Syria, and if the threats from terrorist are neutralized, we are gone!
On the other hand, the official account of YPG published a statement, saying that YPG forces have retreated(or will retreat) from western Euphrates and handed it to Syrian army.
Maybe the Kurds have learned their lesson from Afrin…
According to the information at hand, the further stages of the agreement between the Kurds and government, will include eastern Euphrates and the control of these regions will gradually goes back to government. Of course it is to soon to talk about this and the quality of its implementation, we must wait and see what happens. http://www.english.iswnews.com/4322/have-syrian-army-entered-the-city-of-manbij/
>Senior Russian And Turkish Officials Finish Talks On Syria In Moscow
Senior Russian and Turkish officials held a meeting on the Syrian crisis in Moscow on Saturday. The sides discussed anti-terrorism issues, the withdrawal of U.S. forces and the political process in the country.
The Turkish side was represented by Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, intelligence chief Hakan Fidan and presidential aide Ibrahim Kalin, while Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu, chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov, Presidential Envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentiev, and presidential aide Yuri Ushakov represented Russia.
Following the meeting, Cavusoglu praised the Russian-Turkish cooperation on Syria and said that both counties will continue to work together to defend Syria’s “territorial integrity and political unity.”
“We will continue close cooperation with Russia and Iran on Syria and regional issues,” the Turkish Anadolu Agency quoted Cavusoglu as saying.
From his side, Lavrov said that the high-level Russian-Turkish meeting was “very useful” and confirmed that the two side discussed several issues in Moscow.
“Following the agreements, which were reached by our presidents, we discussed further steps to implement those tasks, which were outlined in the Astana format, primarily in the context of fighting terrorism, resolving humanitarian issues and creating conditions for refugees’ return,” the Russian foreign minister said, according to the Russian news agency TASS.
>>195180 >accurate I honestly have no idea. I don't live in Russia and stayed there only a few months. Putin may be influenced by Dugin but is far from being an active proponent or avatar of his beliefs. It's like asking if Bannon is Trump's Rasputin (which is actually considered by the paranoid Left).
The Catch-22 is accurate. The Russian people are extremely nationalistic, to the point that it's proven difficult to suppress fascist groups in Russia despite the All-Russia People's Front being an effective outlet for nationalism. Despite this, Putin does want good relations with the West for economic reasons; despite the hype China, central Asia, and the rest of BRICS make poor trade partners.
But really, I'm not much more well-informed on this than any other American.
>Kremlin Confirms Syrian Army Deployment In Manbij As More Troops Head Towards City Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, confirmed on December 29 that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was deployed in the northern city of Manbij, according to the Russian news agency Sputnik.
A day earlier, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) announced its withdrawal from Manbij and called on the SAA to protect the city from Turkey’s threats. The army responded within few hours and deployed a large force in the outskirt of the strategic city.
“No doubt, this is a positive step towards stabilizing the situation,” Peskov said back then.
However, US-led coalition denied any changes in military forces in Manbij. Furthermore, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan questioned the army’s announcement and called it a “psychological operation.”
Despite the denial of the US-led coalition, whose forces are still in Manbij, many videos and photos showing Syrian and Russian forces in the outskirt of the city were released by pro-government sources.
In fact, on December 29, the Syrian pro-government al-Masdar News blog reported that more forces, this time from the SAA’s 4th Division, were deployed near the northern city.
So they're present in Manbij, but also not present in Manbij? Are the Russians and Syrians bullshitting to keep Erdogan from moving in? But that wouldn't make sense either because of the Russian-Turkish summit that was held today (Sat for non Burgers) - all Putin had to do to stop the offensive was throw up a red light. What the bloody is going on here?
>>195238 See >But that wouldn't make sense either because of the Russian-Turkish summit that was held today (Sat for non Burgers) - all Putin had to do to stop the offensive was throw up a red light. Unless Erdogan's crazy enough to move in and risk getting bombed by Russians/Syrians.
>>195239 >all Putin had to do to stop the offensive was throw up a red light yeah i'm sure making it plain and evident that you have nothing on the ground and only """threats""" or airstrikes is going to stop erdogan the mad sultan for having his way anyways that's where maskirovska comes into play
Guys, I've just realized something. Trump's decision to withdraw from Syria is, as we all know, a good thing, and as such I was looking forward to the "I told you so" phase as the neocons and neolibs (especially in the media) are confronted with the fact that peace will return to Syria and that their policies have been retarded the whole time.
But I've now realized that this is never going to happen… His decision will never be vindicated as the media point to the handover of Kurdish land to Assad as "Thrackerzod's decision is helping an ebil dictator." If anything, this will be a counter example used by war hawks in the same way that we point to Libya or Iraq.
Trump will take a big hit for this no matter how well it turns out for Syria and it's just not fair.

Taliban are in Adraskan District of Herat. Pingu, you think they're advancing on Herat now like they were on Maymana, Ghazni, Farah? It would certainly tie into their endgame of capturing the CS around the provincial capitals and waging the battles to take and hold the provincial capitals throughout 2019-202X.
Turkey has ordered Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups deployed on the frontlines around the northern city of Manbij to withdraw and end the state of emergency, the Syrian Step News Agency reported on at the late hours of December 30.
According to the pro-opposition news agency, Ankara backed-off from its plans to attack the strategic city, which is held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), as a result of the high-level Russia-Turkish meeting that was held in Moscow two days ago.
Earlier this week, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) announced its withdrawal from Manbij and called on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to protect the city from Turkey’s threats. The army responded within few hours and deployed a large force in the outskirt of the strategic city.
However, U.S. and French forces didn’t withdraw from the city. Later, a local official said that the SAA was deployed only on the front lines with Turkish-backed forces and said that the city is still under the control the local Manbij Military Council (MMC).
>>195300 You said it yourself it ties in their strategy to control areas surrounding the provincial capitals and controlling the ring road. But in what time frame will they make a more determined push I have no idea.

I don't know if it's true. if it is, I guess probably as payback after the Americans forces IAF to cancel Lavi and Kfir and buy their F-16's and F-15's. And you know, good ole' greed. I bet the chinks pay good.

>>195669 Oh yeah, but IIRC the OG accusations about the china stuff came out somewhere the 80's, before Iran was a threat. lavi and kfir are outdated by now. Also I think China hacked the F-35 blueprints long time ago, they probably know everything they need.
>>195670 >China hacked the F-35 blueprints long time ago, they probably know everything they need. interesting times we have ahead of us btw redpill me about conscription in israel, how come it's so long and yet there hasn't been much to try to reduce it to 1 year? isn't there good economical arguments to reduce it considering you're "at peace" far longer than you're engaging an actual war?
>>195671 > how come it's so long and yet there hasn't been much to try to reduce it to 1 year? Men 3 years, girls 2. I think they shortened it by a few months for most non combat roles guys too awhile ago. >isn't there good economical arguments to reduce it Nah, the pay is complete shit. like, laughable. even for combat units. it's modern slavery, they use most troops to build/paint/repair infrastructure anyway. the service is too much of an ingathering experience of all different racial/class groups to ingrain you into society and brainwash you, so most people left and right support conscription. also everyone is paranoid that if you'd turn it into a professional service no one would enlist and in time of need there wouldn't be enough men to fight.
>>195673 by economic argument i meant having the new working population enter the labor market earlier than when they're forced to do 3 years of underpaid slavery >if you'd turn it into a professional service no one would enlist and in time of need there wouldn't be enough men to fight. just do like in america, have universities charge overpriced prohibitive fees and make a system where the state pays for your university if you enlist :^) or more seriously do like in switzerland where they chop up the conscription in periods of few weeks over the years up until the individual complete the whole cycle (at around the age of 30 yo)

ISIS crosses Euphrates to kill over 20 Syrian Army soldiers
BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terror group launched a surprise attack last night that targeted the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops west of the Euphrates River.
According to a Syrian military source in the area, the Islamic State terrorists began their operation last night by crossing the Euphrates River and landing in the Deir Ezzor Governorate village of Al-Siyal.
>>195851 That bulge to Turmanin is unlikely to be a real thing. HTS fans claim Turmanin is in HTS hands and there's no supply routes to that town for Zenki.

No Syrian military offensive planned in Idlib province – source
BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has no plans of launching a large-scale offensive in the Idlib Governorate of northwest Syria at this time, a military officer in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this evening.
Speaking to Al-Masdar on the condition of unanimity, the source said that the Syrian military’s next planned offensive will take place in the Badiya Al-Sham region between the provinces of Deir Ezzor and Homs.
When asked if there are any plans to launch an offensive in the Idlib province, the officer responded ‘no’, adding that the Russian and Turkish forces in Syria are working to handle the situation diplomatically.

>>195551 >Death toll of 22,594 >Injury toll of 14,063 Add 22,594 to 8010, and that's 30,604 losses - not including injured - for the gov't. For reference, the gov't lost around the same amount over the course of 3 years from 2015-2018. >In a report released on Tuesday, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, or SIGAR, said the number of forces in the Afghan National Defense and Security forces (ANDSF), which includes the army, air force and police, totaled an estimated 296,400 personnel as of January. That was a drop of 10.6 percent compared to the same month in 2017. >The authorized strength of the ANDSF is 334,000 personnel. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-afghanistan-military/afghan-security-forces-see-drop-in-numbers-as-security-deteriorates-idUSKBN1I22QV
296,400 - 30,604 (assuming the losses the Taliban claim to inflict on the ANDSF weren't already being inflicted as of date of that 296,400 figure (Jan 2018) = 265,796. Which means 10.32% losses, not including injured. Now, we add in injured: 22,594 + 14,063 + 8,010 = 44,667 losses inflicted on the ANA as it existed in Jan 2018 over the course of 2018.
296,400 - 44,667 = 251,733. Which means 15.06% losses on the ANDSF as it existed in Jan 2018 over the course one year!
334,000 - 251,733 = 82,267 total losses assuming ANA started at full strength (334k). Which means a total of 24.63% losses, with 61.14% of those losses (15.06%) being inflicted over the course of one year!

They might cool down if all of NLF gets involved but for now it seems like western Aleppo (not including ES-areas) will go to HTS. We'll see if NLF will escalate, grabbing all of W Aleppo is a massive move, NLF/T*rkey accepting that outcome would be megacucked.
>Looks like Zinki is on the verge of disintegrating. Turkey realized that Zinki cannot stop in Jolani’s face and rumors are circulating that field commanders are telling their troops that each man for himself as many flee to Turkey.

>>196223 >i bet some of them might reconcile if there'll be a SAA offensive I say this because not only were they betrayed by NLF and T*rkey, but because they seem like run of the mill gangsters in it for the profit. With their source of income stolen from them, there isn't much of a reason to fight for T*rkish imperialism. Similar situation with the FSA in Daraa when the burgers abandoned them, there was basically no will to fight and die.
Question. Does Turkey not give a fuck about Idlib and their proxies losing control over there? A lot of analysts talk about Turkey wanting stability in Idlib because their economy can't handle more refugees but they seem to be wholly focused on the k*rds
>>196226 >you mean the patch? Exactly. >Does Turkey not give a fuck about Idlib and their proxies losing control over there? It's a mystery, letting literally al-Qaeda eliminate one of your strongest proxies doesn't exactly seem like a good strategy if you want to use your proxies to defeat HTS… Who knows, maybe it's a 4D chess conspiracy to let Russia and SAA launch an offensive against HTS without defending them… A way to make your goons forget about SDF?

Syrian Army unleashes heavy attack on foreign jihadists near Turkish border
BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) unleashed a heavy attack on the foreign jihadists in the Al-Ghaab Plain on Friday after the latter fired several artillery shells towards their positions near the Turkish border.
According to a military communique from the Latakia province, the Syrian Arab Army fired several surface-to-surface missiles towards the defenses of the Turkestan Islamic Party in the Al-Ghaab Plain and Jisr Al-Shughour countryside.
>>196256 Why don't HTS target the Turkish Watchposts, yet? (inb4 obvious answer: "it would escelate") Why do the Turkish Watchposts not confront HTS (keep the peace; de-escelate)? Why do the Turks feel comfortable having their troops in little dirt forts deep in Al Quaeda territory?
>#Aleppo: #HTS captured the remaining areas under #Zenki control (Awayjil, Jamiat Amin, Hawtah, Anjarah, Shaykh Sulayman, Bazhir, Qabtian Jabal, Shaykh Aqil, Sinhar, Maarat Artiq & Babis) & now have control over M-62 (#Aleppo city - #Afrin road) & 77% of Western #Aleppo CS. Mansoura, Kafr Da'el, Al Halaqim, Bashqatin etc along the highway not being reported as captured by HTS even though they claim to control the road is odd and I'm still unsure about the rest in the north (HTS-supporters mark all of it (Haritan, Anadan etc) as being in HTS hands even before the offensive). But this map accurately reports all the captured towns at least.
>>196260 >Why don't HTS target the Turkish Watchposts, yet? Why would they? >Why do the Turkish Watchposts not confront HTS They're not suicidal, if a confrontation would happen it would be from the T*rkish border, not some tiny isolated bases behind enemy lines. >Why do the Turks feel comfortable having their troops in little dirt forts deep in Al Quaeda territory? HTS doesn't want to get fucked by T*rkey and T*rkey doesn't want to spoil their relations with the strongest force in Idlib.
>>196265 Turkey doesn't have a relationship with HTS. HTS allows them to erect Watchposts to stop the SAA attack and take the non HTS groups slwoyl into the TFSA region where HTS has no influence (yet). HTS would want to get rid of the watchposts as, when it occurs, as the possibilities allow, Turks will want to be the ones to "liberate Idlib", possibly with their TFSA puppets, these watchposts will be in the back of HTS's forces. HTS was the group that sent SVBIED at a Turkish convoy when turks once again rushed in the night to establish a new watchpost, and the turks did nothing to retaliate; HTS isn't afraid of Turks, or anyone, they are jsut perhaps not stupid. When The Last bodies of the TFSA groups die in Idlib, shit is going to go down in Idlib, either by the SAA or someone else who will want to liberate the area from literal Al-Quaeda, and HTS are certainly aware of this as well.
>>196276 jej >>196277 >Turkey doesn't have a relationship with HTS hehehe >these watchposts will be in the back of HTS's forces They aren't a threat. >HTS was the group that sent SVBIED at a Turkish convoy Proof? >When The Last bodies of the TFSA groups die in Idlib No solid proof there's further plans to escalate beyond Zenki now. >shit is going to go down in Idlib, either by the SAA or someone else who will want to liberate the area from literal Al-Quaeda, and HTS are certainly aware of this as well. So?

HTS knows that they won't uncontestetly hold the region forever. They know they will have to (possibly) fight Turkey, so might as well do it while you can gain an advantage >>196281 ISIS had a better relationship with Turkey than HTS
You drunk or something. I feel I could have a more reasoned discussion with Urduni rn
>>196282 >absolutely retarded statemnt here How would 10 tiny outposts with no supply lines be a threat to tens of thousands of jihadis Top lel >forgetting such events? There was no proof HTS did it. >do you read the shit you yourself post here? "a potential move", i.e, a speculation, is not solid proof >HTS knows that they won't uncontestetly hold the region forever. They know they will have to (possibly) fight Turkey, so might as well do it while you can gain an advantage Making T*rkey your enemy is not a wise move.
>>196298 Now that HTS are far from entrenched in the newly acquired territory there's actually an opening for a joint offensive with SAA here… TFSA/NLF could take Simeon mountains and the Bab al-Hawa border crossing whilst SAA secures the Aleppo suburbs. It won't happen but would be insane if it did.
>>196286 Let's not forget, the observation posts were created in order to prevent an SAA attack. If HTS were to take them over it would be like giving a green light to the SAA, which would be quite stupid even for jihadis.
>>196317 Putin wants Aleppo secure and HTS removed. Erdomeme wants to cooperate with Putin, his proxies on the border and the troublemakers HTS removed. Simultaneous offensives doesn't necessarily imply TFSA and SAA befriending eachother or cooperating beyond stopping at a certain point as their masters order. It has happened before but you are clearly too simple-minded to comprehend such a scenario.
>>196325 Erdogan: H U M A N I T A R I A N C R I S I S I N I D L I B (if an SAA attack) all he cares about
btw your uncoordinated coordinated attack is more unrealistic than my HTS attacks Turkish Watchposts. A coordinated Attack between Turkey+friends and Russia+friends is even more likely than your race to Idlib scenario
>>196330 >all he cares about He cares about ratings and i don't think his supporters are too happy with HTS atm. Hell, since my proposed lines aren't crossing the observation post at Anadan, all he has to do is [Deep Concern] and threaten SAA to earn his good boy points. >race to Idlib scenario It's still Aleppo and it's not a race if the lines are drawn ahead of time like with Tadef going to SAA despite TFSA having the opportunity to nab it. >HTS attacks Turkish Watchposts They're not a threat to HTS but you're free to have your uninformed opinion.
Question for Snus or Ebin, re: our map. So I've been trying to find reliable sources and that show exactly what land is controlled by HTS and NLF. Overall, I think we've done a good job but there are three things that sometimes come up, where our maps don't align perfectly with what some say. Pic related are pics I found to demonstrate what I mean. 1. I've seen websites that say that Armanaz and some of the villages to its east are controlled by the NLF 2. That the eastern border with the SAR is entirely controlled by HTS, from Aleppo city to the Duhur - Maarrat al Numan road 3. That the area south of Jasr ash Shugur is controlled by HTS 4. That NLF still controls AL Mansura (although that one might be me not seeing the details correctly (due to that area being a minimap on Ebin's version).
Of course, our map is vastly superior to any I've seen in terms of detail in southern Idlib and northern Hama, and is better overall. I was just wondering if any of you guys had sources for those areas which could clear up this confusion I'm having?
>>196427 Frankly i have no clue since i haven't been following the conflict too closely. However from what i know i'd argue the third map has the most accurate eastern and Jisr frontlines. Regarding Mansura, i've read reports that HTS has taken over all the frontlines previously held by Zinki in Aleppo, seeing as Mansura is on the frontline, it's obvious that it's captured: https://twitter.com/AlKhali72189230/status/1081421468108550145 Another question is the northwestern suburbs of Aleppo (Anadan, Hayyan, Haritan), HTS claims they controlled all of it even before this weeks gains. I dunno…

>>196440 Controlling the main road between Idlib-Ariha-Maraat allows a linkup between the weaker HTS positions in south Idlib with the stronger HTS positions in north Idlib and creates a logistical "backbone" for HTS, like the Trans-Siberian railroad was/is the logistical "backbone" of Russia.
Sure, there's the Saraqib-Maraat road, but it's not as direct as Idlib-Ariha-Maraat.
>>196440 >Lataminah, Kafr Zita That area is controlled by Jaysh al-Izza, friends of HTS. Binnish is too isolated to be a threat and the rest are Daraat Izza-tier. The highway(s) as you mentioned, would be the real key to absolutely dominating Idlib and it would force NLF to submit even harder. Shit's not looking good for T*rkish proxies.
>there are negotiations between HTS and Ahrar over a ceasefire. HTS will only accept it if Ahrar concede Maarat al-Nu’man and Ariha (basically HTS will control the M4 and M5 Highways). Ahrar is not in a position to reject HTS’s demands. >So far in the negotiations, Ahrar agreed to allow HTS to enter Ma’arrat al-Nu’man’s eastern countryside peacefully.

Israel is preparing to sue Tunisia for $35 billion in lost assets and Libya for $15 billion.
In total, Israel will demand $250 billion from Tunisia, Libya, Morocco, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Yemen, and Iran.

Breaking: ISIS takes advantage of heavy fog to launch offensive to retake Euphrates stronghold
BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched a large-scale counter-offensive in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate this morning, targeting the areas recently captured by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
Taking advantage of the heavy fog, the Islamic State units in the Al-Sousah area launched a big attack on the southern axis of Al-Shafah.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 A.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) could be integrated into the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the near future, the spokesperson for the SDF told the AFP last week.
I know many of you are "every inch autists" who will disagree with me on this, but a Kurdish - Assad alliance against the other rebels is the only way the war will ever end. I mean… we can genocide them a few years after if you guys really want to, but this is a good thing for now - Assad has to be pragmatic.
Syrian Army eyes new military operations as jihadists expand presence in NW Syria
BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is reportedly preparing to launch several new operations in the northwestern region of Syria, a military officer told Al-Masdar News this morning.
Speaking to Al-Masdar from the Aleppo Governorate, the officer said that the Syrian Arab Army is preparing to launch a big attack in the western countryside of the province.
According to the officer, the Syrian Arab Army is giving the Turkish-backed rebels the opportunity to retake the areas they lost to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham last week; however, if they fail to do so, the military will launch their operation.
In addition to the potential operation in west Aleppo, the officer said that the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command made the recent decision to once again amass troops along the Hama-Idlib axis

Russian forces allegedly begin patrols in Manbij area
The military police of the Russian Armed Forces began patrolling the territory in the Manbij area in the Syrian province of Aleppo near the Turkish border, the police’s spokesman Yusup Mamatov told reporters.
“Today, patrols have begun to patrol the security zone in the area of the settlement of Manbij and its suburbs. The task is to ensure security in the area of responsibility, to control the position and movement of armed formations,” Mamatov said.
The first patrol route of military police officers passed along the rear border of the security zone near Manbij, he explained.

>>196967 meds for animals are designed for illnesses specific to said animals so at best it'll be useless, at worse it'll be dangerous (deadly intoxications and such) because first, the levels of safety on veterinary meds are less strict than on human meds (cause no pharma industry is going to get a lawsuit for a dead dog or a dead fish) also the fact that drug metabolism is very different from one animal to the other can cause problems(example a human can die from 10 grams of paracetamol, a mouse can die from 40 grams so if the pill is "regular dose" for a mouse, it will be lethal if taken by a human) all in all i hope you don't do that, but if you do please keep me updated on the effects (for research purposes)
