^^ I'd like to know as well.


For quite a while now it is back and forth in the desert east of Palmyra, as ISIS is successively repulsing the Syrian Arab Army & Allies from their stronghold at the settlement of Arak, Homs Governorate, Syria, June 5th, 2017.

Thank you for the answer!

Now an unsolvable question appeared: What does a rusted corpse of an American only serviced tank do on top of a container in Norway  ;D

Apparently, the SAA made a push and made it to the Iraqi Border, connecting with PMU. This complicates the US backed insurgents as they keep resisting the Syrian push towards Al-Tanf, amid US Air Force bombings.

At the same time, the SDF entered the city of Raqqa, it sounds too weird to me, their capital is under siege yet they concentrate their efforts against Deir ez-Zor, I don't know. When the PMU and the Kurd approached Mosul, ISIS responded by sending wave after wave of car bombs, when the SDF made it to Raqqa, ISIS barely released propaganda about it.

Also, there are still clashes between Philippine troops and pro-ISIS insurgents in Marawi.

^^ The military command and the civilian government of the Islamic State was moved to Mayadin, al-Bukamal and al-Qa'im, the families of ISIS official fled with them, the remaining population is fleeing now. ISIS flooded the city districts below Euphrates River level a week or two ago, having totally pulled back into the depth of the city. Raqqah isn't capital any longer.


Thank you for the answer!

I don't think it is that rusted, as this is an aluminium tank. The armor is just very, very weak. Thus I think these tanks have been discharged. It is basically scrap or an memorial for eternity.

What Dukat said.  Raqqah has long been abandoned as a main city- they've left behind enough guys (estimates ~2500-4000) to effectively turn the whole thing into a long, brutal battle, but they pulled all remaining resources out.  They're throwing everything they can at Deir Ez Zor because, if they can finally crush it fully, they would be able to create a box of a last stand around it, Mayadin, al-Bukamal, and al-Qa'im.  Right now, they know it's gonna end for their little run, but they want to make it last as long as possible.

That said, there are reports now that they're arming Raqqah citizens and forcing them to fight the SDF (most likely interspersing them amoungst actual ISIL forces and holding families hostage to force them to obey), so that'll be a shitshow.  Good chance they'll use them as forced suicide bombers as well (blow yourself up or we torture your family to death, etc).

Military situation in Mosul area, Nineveh Governorate, Iraq, June 9th, 2017.

orienteering test:
Footage: Rojava News: YPG found ISIS tunnel from neighborhood of al-Mashalab in Raqqa, Raqqah Governorate, Syria, June 12th, 2017, 720p

Based on the footage from Raqqah, I do not believe in the thousands of ISIS fighters to be entrenched in Raqqah, which are being reported again and again. It rather looks like the city is abandoned and only held by a suicide garrison left behind to create some resistance.

Again, makes sense, and, if so, means that Raqqah should go faster than expected and with much fewer civilian casualties.
