SYRIA: THE NEW GOVERNMENT PLANS FOR MOVING EAST

The de-escalation agreement for four fighting zones in Syria has come into effect. The battles between Syrian government forces (red) and the foreign supported "rebels" (yellow) has ebbed in the north, in Idleb and north Hama, in the south round Deraa, around the besieged "rebel" enclaves north of Homs and east of Damascus in east-Ghouta. That does not mean that those areas are peaceful or safe. In the north Turkey is scrimishing with U.S. supported Kurds (purple), in Deraa governate ISIS is infighting with other Jihadi "rebels" and in east-Ghouta various "rebel" groups are trying to eliminate each other.

This de-escalation has freed up Syrian government forces which are now repositioning for a large attack through south-east Syria towards Deir-Ezzor and the Iraqi border. One axis of the attack will be from the capital to the east along the Damascus-Baghdad highway towards the Iraqi border. Another one will aim from Palmyra east through Sukhnah towards Deir Ezzor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this can hold, it ultimately means victory for the Syria government, which is not the outcome those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged States of America want to see happen.

However, that being said, I wouldn't bet against an ultimately large contingent of American-backed rebels sticking a monkey wrench in the works on this soon.
