    I just don’t understand why the map on the FAN is so rarely corrected. In particular, the Akerbat cauldron has long been drawn on a piece of the map of the Hama province, Tel Rifat was freed, and the situation is a month ago on the general overview map. Though you sketch it with a red felt-tip pen ... laughing lol lol
