If you watch the embedded SITREP in this South Front report you will learn that the authors at South Front (I assume we are in one way or another talking about Russians) agree with me that the R+6 coalition is attempting to do too much with insufficient forces. This is a recipe for failure. South Front attributes to the SAA an intention to attack east from Palmyra, West at Aleppo City to close the gap and completing the closure of the Aleppo City pocket. IMO they lack the force to simultaneously run both these operations successfully. The SAA had to move the Tiger forces back to the Aleppo area to make such operations possible. As I wrote before this is an indicator of insufficient force available. At the same time the SAA has not moved forward NW of Jisr ash-Shugur to close the border crossing points through which Turkey is sending jihadi reinforcements from Hatay Province into Idlib Provnce and to Aleppo City. the evident inability to do that is yet another indicator of insufficiency of forces.
At the same time the Syrian Kurds are at least making a gesture of advance toward Raqqa, Syria. Whether these Kurds will really want to capture the largely Arab City remains to be seen.
The Iraqis are advancing towards the Syrian border along the Euphrates River. What happens when Iraqi forces reach the border. The disinclination of the US to cooperate with Russian supported forces on the other side of the border mkes thi a big question.
Lastly, what do the Russians think they are doing? What? pl
