BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:05 A.M.) – It has been nearly year since the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has launched any major offensive in the eastern countryside of Aleppo, as the battle inside the provincial capital tied most of their reserves down in 2016.

Once the eastern pocket of the provincial capital was under their control, thousands of reserves from the Syrian Arab Army became readily available for a new military operation.

Unlike their planned offensive in southern Aleppo which has elements of Hezbollah and Iraqi paramilitary personnel, the entire operation in the eastern countryside will be conducted solely by the Syrian Arab Army.

No foreign forces, outside of their Russian military advisors, will be present at any time during the east Aleppo offensive.

The question now is where are the Syrian forces going to attack in the eastern countryside of Aleppo….

Al-Masdar has confirmed on multiple occasions a massive build-up of Syrian Arab Army personnel around the Kuweires Military Airport; however, their intended offensive destination is often not clear.

Some sources claim that Deir Hafer is the main objective for the Syrian Arab Army, while attacks by the Syrian Air Force on Al-Bab indicate a possible shift north towards this city.

Regardless of which Islamic State stronghold the Syrian Arab Army chooses to attack; it appears that this offensive is imminent given their build-up around the Kuweries Military Airport.

Buena estrategia para amortiguar y cortar suministros a ISIS, también debe tener en cuenta con respecto a los terroristas de Erdogan para expulsar del norte de Alepo.

The best thing to do is to encircle Deir Hafer but moreover to join lake Assad and/or do the junction with SDF, thus cutting any reinforcements to al-Bab at the same time.
It could be also interesting to have another offensive more in the south to lake Assad, i.e. from Zabad or Rasm Abu Alba or even both in order to create a kill zone between lake Assad and lake Jabbul. Taking them with their balls in a vice would sound good to me, it’d make IS sexual spastics, LOL (sounds like Zappa’s Bobby Brown Goes Down, LOL!)

No. This is a terrible idea, how many fronts have they currently got? Why add another one, with Turkey looming in the north and ISIS all around?? By attacking ISIS, the SAA helps Turkey more easily gain ground in and around Al Bab. Syria doesn’t have the manpower as it is, look at how quickly Palmyra fell! This is lunacy, another Tabaqa. I get wanting to cut Turkey off from reaching Lake Assad but surely it would be better to do this AFTER they take Al Bab, rather than get to the lake, forcing ISIS to flee the entire area,… Read more »
