Since Assads forces broke the ceasefire with the moderate rebels, they have moved troops away from ISIS front lines and as a result ISIS has been retaking vast amounts of territory. If you look at the map:
You will see that ISIS in black/grey is close to retaking Palmyra. The regime areas in red have been significantly pushed back over the last week.
Deir Es Zor a regime enclave in the East has been besieged by ISIS for almost a year, should the regime negotiate a safe passage with ISIS to allow residents to escape to safe areas in the west with Daesh gaining Palmyra?
Also should the regime give Palmyra back to ISIS as their control of it is unsustainable?
From what I can see the regime should negotiate a peace deal allowing the Daesh to occupy all Eastern Syria in condition that the Daesh remove all forces from west Syria because the regime is incapable of any overall victory against the Daesh.
The advantages are that it will end the Syrian civil war in the East of the country, save the regime a lot of money and lives and with no war in this area allow the coalition airstrikes to stop.
Are ISIS once again winning in Syria as they rapidly recapture territory from regime?
