Aleppo, Syria (6:35 A.M.) – The Syrian ceasefire has temporarily halted the hostilities between the government and opposition forces across the country.
However, the war is far from over and both sides are not likely to commit to any long-term agreement that might hinder their ability to seize more Syrian land.
For the Syrian Armed Forces, the 7 day ceasefire is a short break from the intense fighting, but once this over; it is back to front-lines in Aleppo.
The Syrian Arab Army has already flooded the province with reinforcements from the Republican Guard; however, they will also be joined by fighters from Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), and the IRGC.
The military objective is the southern Aleppo countryside; specifically, Tal Al-‘Eiss and Khan Touman.
If these two villages are captured by the pro-government forces, then they will have fire control over the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway).
