The leader of the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces”, Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan, has been named the head commander for the coming government  offensive in Aleppo.

According to a military source in Damascus City, the Russian military advisers chose Col. Hassan to lead this offensive because of his long history of military success and adept field command.

Earlier this week, there was much speculation that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) prominent commander, Major General Qassem Suleimani, was going to lead these operations; however, he will only be advising Col. Hassan.

The other person that was in contention for this role in Aleppo was General Aymen Jaber of Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks); however, he will remain in east Homs to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The final date for this large-scale offensive in the Aleppo Governorate has not been set.

The Syrians really need to develop a larger pool of capable commanders. Then again, having a larger pool of capable commanders would create potential rivals to the Assad clique. It’s tragic that so many developing nation’s governments are controlled by paranoid cliques that fearfully centralize talent, skill, decision-making, and power rather than confidently delegating those resources in ways that would develop more opportunities for growth, achievement, and success.
