BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies resumed their offensive in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, today, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last positions at the strategic T-2 Pumping Station.

Backed by Liwaa Fatemiyoun (Iranian-Afghani paramilitary) and Hezbollah, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Al-Artiwaziyah area that is located directly south of the T-2 Pumping Station.

Not long after launching the attack, the Syrian Arab Army was able to impose full control over the Al-Artiwaziyah area, forcing the remaining ISIS terrorists to retreat to the T-2 Station in order to strengthen the defenses around the base.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have managed to surround the T-2 Pumping Station from three different flanks, leaving only one route to escape for the ISIS terrorists.

This ISIS group are said to be experts in desert warfare. Is now the time to surround them all in the airbase and obliterate them all with massive thermobaric strikes combined with bunker busting bombs etc?

There is a reason why ISIS is defending the T-2 pumping station so hard. When they are finally expelled from there they would lose one of their few remaining sources of fuel in both Iraq and Syria. That means that for ISIS in the other parts of Syria they likely won’t even to be able to flee in motorized vehicles if required. That would indeed be pathetic.

Don’t be stupid : do not lose time. Send 2 or 3 vacuum bombs to theses rats.
You will avoid casualties.
Theses monsters should be wiped out of the world ASAP, despite the USA and Israel (ISISAF).
SAA should have at least 2 jet ready for this task.

Hopefully this front will begin to break apart. Once Daesh are pushed into open desert they will be easy targets for SyAF and RuAF.
