#SDF started the second phase of #WrathOfEuphrates operation on December securing the West flank of #Raqqa plains (3)
The fall of #Palmyra on December was a hard blow for #SAA . #ISIS took advantage of the situation launching severals attacks to #DeirEzzor pocket & divided it in two (4)
At the same time, #ISF was managing to take the eastern part of #Mosul & their sourrounding countryside (5)
After the liberation of #Aleppo #SAA #Tiger_Forces started new operation with the objectives:
-Expell #ISIS from #DayrHafir & #Jirah Airbase

The battle of #Qaboun - #Barzeh (18/2/2017 - 29/5/2017) took many months due to the density of buildings, but finally, rebels surrender & part of them were evacuated, now E.#Ghouta was more isolated. Next objective: #Jobar (12)
