In 2015 after fall of #Palmyra #ISIS quickly came through gates of #Damascus and #Suwayda but they focused on #Qalamoun. After 2016, #FSA near Jordanian border started to attack to ISIS and gained ground through early 2017.
When #SAA was planning massive offensive to capture whole #ISIS areas in the center and east of country. #FSA in #Qalamun and near Jordanian border attacks to ISIS and try to open supply line for the besieged Qalamun pocket.
#ISIS was pulling back these areas quickly. They did same in June 2016. They fallback near al Tanf and Iraqi border. Rebels with US Spec Ops attacked #AbuKamal under US-led Coaltion Air Support.

New thread on interesting SAA & Republican Guard facts/anecdotes I’m finding for an upcoming report. Mostly stuff from earlier in the war.
Video shows #Chechen foreign fighters in Ballermoun, Aleppo on March 17, 2014

On 3/21 rebels here killed Maj General Samea Abbas, head of the 102nd Regiment RG. On 3/25 they killed Brig General Qasi Mohammad, commander of the 415th Battalion of the 102nd.
Seems the 415th Battalion was destroyed in this battle as I can’t find any credible references to it after Qasi’s death. 102nd remained in #Aleppo until late 2017 (when deployment reports end).
