BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The month of January has been one of the slowest months in terms of field developments for the Syrian War; however, several important battles are expected to take place in the coming weeks.

Among these important future battles includes the Syrian Arab Army’s long-awaited Deir Hafer and Palmyra offensives; and the Islamic State’s Deir Ezzor assault.

While these offensives brew-up in northern and eastern Syria, the capital city of Damascus has been at the forefront of the daily news, with intense firefights reported at the East Ghouta and Wadi Barada area.

In the coming weeks, the battle for Wadi Barada should conclude, paving the way for the Syrian Arab Army’s new military operation in the Beit Jinn area along the Golan Heights-Damascus border in west Syria.

Meanwhile in eastern Aleppo, opposite of the Syrian Arab Army, the Turkish Army should be making another major push for the key city of Al-Bab, where the Islamic State appears to be on their last legs.

Al Bab is a error for SAA and theSyrian Army. If they capture AL Bab and Control the zone between SDF , the SAA could over the Kurdish or better say North Syrian teritory come behind Der Ezzor and start Atack to break the Siege… the is only 40 km , same like now from T4 to Palmyra

It’s not SAA that’s attacking al-Bab
SAA is the Syrian Army!!!
It’s actually the FSA (Free Salafist Army) and the Turdish, errr, sorry, Turkish army that are attacking the city. Trying to wipe out the Turds+FSA now would be a strategic mistake. Let them have their Vietnam in al-Bab and flush the toilets later…

Al-Bab debe ser tomado por SDF o el ejercito Sirio y no los terroristas de Erdogan ayudados por traidores de la Patria Siria.

Could be more interesting to have Qaedans take al-Bab from IS so both have serious losses then come to wipe out Qaedans… 😉
