    And why would they leave?
    They defend themselves in long-prepared positions, there is a supply and rotation of personnel (since they are talking about the arrival of new units there).

    As for the stories about how the attacking side grinds the defenders... let's just say, I hope the losses are at least comparable.
    Although common sense says that usually the attackers lose more.
