DEFENSIVE LINES QUICKLY COLLAPSING IN DAYR HAAFER; ISIS ON THE VERGE OF A MAJOR DEFEAT

“Exclusive to SyrPer” by Canthama

Eastern Aleppo Province

Latest news from this front line depicts a general collapse by ISIS terrorists in the north, south and west of Dayr Haafir, paving the way for its liberation. The importance of this city for ISIS is similar to Al-Baab, Manbij or Maskana.  Losing this town will have a serious impact all the way down to Raqqa, Hama and Homs Provinces.

After the last few days of preparing and planning, yesterday and today,  the Tiger Forces and allies have liberated several villages, closing in on the gates of Dayr Haafir. The villages liberated so far are:

  • Zubayda
  • Khassaf
  • Tell Khassaf
  • Al Kiyariyah
  • Umm Tinah 
  • Al Mab’uja
  • Umm al Mara

The battle for Dayr Haafir is centered on the control of the 4 villages with hills surrounding the city. They are Tal Soos (NE), Ahmadiyya (NW), Tal ‘Akoola (SE) and Umm Al-Maara (SW). So far,  the southwestern village of Umm Maara and its hill were liberated. With that,  the Tiger Forces and allies control the highest hill overlooking the city, and reports of combat are on-going at Ahmadiyyah, northwest of the city.

The city of Deir Hafer is heading toward being cut off from N4 which would either force ISIS to retreat or to be fully besieged. ISIS continues to pour terrorists into its defenses. Most recently,  hundreds of Jund Al- Aqsaa terrorists were sent to defend the town. This is the very group that was expelled by Al-Qaeda from Idlib and reached ISIS lines, most likely through Turkey before Al-Baab and was captured by the Turkish-backed terrorists.

Expect multiple villages to be liberated in the next few days with special attention on the battles for Tal Soos, Jannat Salaama and Lalat Muhammad. Their liberation will mean Dayr Haafir is locked down.

 

 

The strategic importance of Dayr Haafir is not only linked to the fact it is an important city for it holds another gateway to advance toward Maskana and Raqqa, through the eastern side of Lake Jabbool. It would create a new front line for ISIS to defend, and in turn, weaken ISIS at the newly-liberated Jiraah airbase.  That would be a very delicate defensive position to hold.

 

 

Homs city

53 green buses headed to Al Wa’er to collect and evacuate the terrorists and their families, estimated at 1,500-2,000, have arrived. From these numbers, some 400-450 are believed to be terrorists. First batch is leaving today to Idlib and another group to Jaraablus. (Ziad disagrees about Jaraablus because a condition of the agreement was that the terrorists not be sent to any area controlled by Turkish forces.)

 

Dayr El-Zor

The battles have intensified lately, with ISIS pouring more terrorists into the fray in order to build on their gains during December and January. So far,  all recent attempts have failed, which in part created an opportunity for the SAA, NDF and local tribes to advance toward positions previously held by ISIS since January.

Dayr El-Zor is getting a lot of ISIS attention since the fall in Mosul, Tal ‘Afar, Al-Baab, Palmyra and now Dayr Haafir. The offensive toward Raqqa will intensify in April, adding more pressure on ISIS. By then Maskana will have beeen liberated,  as well. There will be very few places for ISIS to hold as a temporary capital, hence the importance of Dayr El-Zor to  them.

Based on this perspective, ISIS positions in eastern Hama and central Homs will most likely receive a lot of attention from the Syrian High Command. Clearly, an offensive in these areas would create panic among ISIS terrorists and their families. They would be pushed toward the desert and with few places to stay in a forced migration through the desert back to the border with Iraq and Jordan. This is why the defense of Dayr El-Zor is so vital for the Syrian Government. It is at the core of ISIS’s future.

ISIS destroyed our memorial in Dayr El-Zor to the millions of Armenians mass murdered by the Turks in 1915. After the SAA drives ISIS permanently out we will rebuild it. We will never forget that the vermin US and EU supported their terrorist proxies in unleashing immense suffering, death, and destruction in Syria, Iraq, Libya.

Canthama, thanks again for your excellent analysis.

The liberation of Deir ez-Zor will be as sweet as the liberation of Aleppo. It is a miracle that the city never completely fell–truly, it is the Stalingrad of this conflict. Had it fallen, the strategic and psychological loss would have been devastating to the Syrian people.

Russia summons Israeli ambassador. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/226868 This is a major warning by the Russians to the Zionists, for those that don’t understand “diplomacy”, geo-politics that well this is my take on what Russia is doing. 1. Russia to Israel: “We’re not happy with you for bombing Syria, hands off Syria…..if this carries on, watch what happens.” 2. Now it might just be “watch what happens” or in more formal language “there may be consequences” or it may just be straight out direct, the Russians will take out Israeli planes that go so far in to Syria. The Russians may just leave… Read more »

The motivations and ramifications of the recent Israeli airstrike into Syria with the more than likely intercept of 1 of its planes by a Syrian SAM are quickly and glaringly coming to light to the attentive observer. Behind the attack, lies Israeli’s perceived view that their brain-child and proxy army, ISIS, is being effectively reduced as a fighting force and if the Russians, Iranians, Iraqis etc. continue battling it as they have been in the last few months or so, nothing will remain of them by year’s end. Thus, the existential Israeli quagmire comes into the forefront: not only will… Read more »

White Helmets Video: “Macabre” Manipulation of Dead Children? – link to Off Guardian

Excerpt: “After examination of the video material, I found that the measures inflicted upon those children, some of them lifeless, are bizarre, non-medical, non-lifesaving, and even counterproductive in terms of life-saving purposes of children.”
