Updated Map of Military Situation at Deir Ez-Zor

The army still has a strong foothold in the western part of the city, while ISIS terrorists have completely seized the eastern part of the Euphrates River, effectively leaving the other insurgent groups surrounded. The Brigadier General, Issam Zahreddin, has largely kept SAA soldiers here entrenched while letting the terrorist infighting unfold. Recently, Issam sensed weakness and seized the moment to recapture terrain in and around the city. Meanwhile, the troops at Deir Ez-Zor Airport are on high alert and are preparing for a coming ISIS offensive.

Surely, not already. The wisest thing they can do is hold their position and entrench as much as they can. When the entire west Syria (and I mean the entire West with the border with Turkey sealed off and the terrorists wiped out ), then will be much easier pushing from the west with that foot-hold

@ Oz,

you have not shown any contradiction. SAA have smashed their own cities and civilian population, not something normally reckoned a mark of distinction in a national army. Actually connecting with enemy combatants is where they fall down. These (+external backers) are far from defeated and, whichever way it goes, will undoubtedly still trim considerable fat and fur off SAA before the last bell tolls.

Here’s another example of that, Frank. A Libyan jihadist just home from Syria was shot dead in Derna this week during a feud between rival terror groups. The al-Battar Brigade, which is affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), issued a statement on Monday (June 9th) saying that ‘heads would be cut off, stomachs slit and Libya filled with graves to avenge Mahdi Saad Abu al-Abyadh al-Gaithi.’ Al-Ghaithi was killed in a clash with the Abu Slim Martyrs Brigade, inflaming the conflict between jihadist groups. http://libyaagainstsuperpowermedia.org/

Hi, Frank. In ’95 Jack McLamb’s group proposed just such a move; almost all are combat vets with a very sensitive sense of timing. According to my research, it was still possible then. McLamb swindled ’em into ‘sitting down and talking about it’, so the idea was talked to death. This was in an interview with call in, on http://www.infowars.com, and may still be available from the archives Alex Jones interviewing Jack McLamb. I never thought that either McLamb or Gritz were anything but plants anyway, but I’ve no proof so it’s just an opinion.

Looking at the map of 3 December, 2013, and comparing it to the new map, SAA appears to have verged upon establishing a bridgehead east of the river, which is my guess as to why ISIS/ISIL got turned loose. Once SAA was across the river in strength, operating in open country, the insurgents would in an untenable position. The new map is interesting, but far from a complete picture of what is happening in the rest of the AO all the way north and south.

Retreating can hardly be a problem for SAA, as they have it down to a T these last few years.

Yeah, I’ve noticed that some time ago (that ISIS is targeting “FSA” rather than SAA). It’s quite simple from “ISIS” side – get rid of the weaker opponent first by either (preferably) assimilating or destroying it. SAA is doing the same (targeting “FSA”), but because of strategic reasons. “FSA” is a weak link in this “mess” and their hatred (and poor leadership) against SAA is blinding them so much that they can’t even see that they are being back stabbed by “ISIS”. Why is “ISIS” getting rid of “FSA” so easily? Simple. In my opinion SAA is not engaging “ISIS”… Read more »

I may be wrong, but I agree with you out of a more strategic reasons. “ISIS” is already fighting Iraq army and opening another “front” would be a strategic suicide (fighting on two fronts simultaneously). Also the SAA had a lot of time to “dig in” and they have Air and Artillery support. “ISIS” don’t have the element of surprise anymore and the SAA is now well organized and have veteran troops ready for them. So, why this sudden “incursion”? In my opinion they will, maybe, go south along the river to “assimilate” the towns towards Al-Bukamal (cleaning “their” territory).… Read more »

ISIS it’s not but a USA/Saudi Arabia monster to get rid of the Shia Al-Maliki.
Not enough “reliable” for their point of view.
As was previously said: they tried to destroy Syria in a sectarian-tribal war and they didn’t make it. Or at least they encountered a fierce resistence, SAA was not the papier-mache army of the Col. Gaddafi and Syrian people supported the government way more than expected, so they just turned to Iraq.
But why trying to weaken those two countries particulary?
Obviously, to hit indirectly Hezbollah and Iran.

The Walid Crossing in the Iraqi Side which is under control by ISIS can be captured by SAA and allies which are on the Syrian Side of the crossing,if that happens then Liwa Abu Fadl al-Abbas militia can capture the Border Crossing at Jordan-Iraq Border and advancing towards at the villages that are ISIS held in middle of the al-Anbar Desert.

They should try to secure the city on their side of the river and west of the airport they should dig in to hold of ISIS.

I would like to see the SAA properly secure the supply line to the the city. I heard SAA can get through using well protected convoys but the roads between Al-Suknah and Deiz ez Zor are basically no-mans land now. Kabajeb, al-Shula and a few oil facilities could be secured to keep a safe supply line. This will make sense once ISIS has mopped up the FSA/IF/JAN and starts focussing on the SAA.

The United States is seeking immunity from local prosecution for forces it is planning to deploy to Iraq…. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Friday that the Department of Defense will ensure that Iraqis provide the immunity in writing. “I can assure you we will have those protections,” Kirby said, adding that US officials are negotiating with the Iraqi government about this issue. http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/06/22/368079/us-seeks-immunity-for-troops-in-iraq/
More massacres of civilians on the way?

Thanks for the update Fadi. I become discouraged at times during this conflict as the SAA makes huge gains but situations like Deir Ez-Zor are examples that there is no end in sight. The war between evil and good, right and wrong, God will ensure victory! God bless the SAA

Just a heads-up, Obama suddenly thinks the “rebels” never had a chance to overthrow Assad: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/obama-notion-that-syrian-opposition-could-overthrow-assad-a-fantasy/ It’s a good thing he encouraged the “rebels” to try anyway, as well as go to war with ISIS. Because if you have no chance of defeating Asaad’s troops, I’m sure you’ll have a much better chance going to war with half of you allies and lose thousands of men, as well as money and materiel, in the effort. I assume the reason Obama has changed his tune is because his “intelligence” folks are pointing out that Assad is more and more successful, and… Read more »

Alongside Ban’s Syria Speech, ISIS on Border http://www.innercitypress.com/syria4banasia062114.html UNITED NATIONS, June 21, more here — On the Iraq – Syria border, the day after UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon speechified at the Asia Society that “Syria’s neighbours should enforce a firm prohibition on the use of their land borders and airspace for arms flows and smuggling into Syria,” ISIS took over a major crossing at Qaim, 200 miles west of Baghdad. At the UN’s noon briefing on June 20, after Ban’s speech, Inner City Press asked UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric: Inner City Press: I didn’t see it in his speech,… Read more »

Syria Report Cites US Bomber, US Spin, ISIS, UNtransparently Released http://www.innercitypress.com/syria5humspin062014.html UNITED NATIONS, June 20 — The UN released its Syria aid access report in the same murky, pre-spun way on June 20 as it did on April 23, and then on May 22, with no reforms instituted. The report is consonant with Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s speech earlier on June 20 at the Asia Society, click here for that. It nevertheless recites for example that “on 25 May, a citizen of the United States was involved in a suicide bombing in Syria.” But, unlike for other foreign fighters, Ban’s… Read more »

My friend Arklight, tks for sharing this article, though most of the people had a gut feeling who was really behind ISIS, this article gives milestones and interesting facts that helps to put the picture quite clear. Should I be a US citizen like you I would feel the same, betrayed and annoyed by this Government. I can only say this is a lost cause for this gang of criminal, they are walking on eggs and pushing the envelop too thin, they won’t get want they want this time, though it is a survival fight for their NWO, they have… Read more »
