Al igual que en la ofensiva Palmira (Tadmur), el Ejército Árabe Sirio (EAS) está amasando con rapidez un masivo contingente de soldados para engrosar sus números con miras al próximo asalto en la gobernación de Alepo.

En poco más de dos semanas, las fuerzas armadas sirias ya han desplegado cerca de 11.000 soldados al frente de Alepo con objeto de participar en esta ofensiva a gran escala que será respaldada por la Fuerza Aérea Rusa.

Sin embargo, ausentes de esta ofensiva a gran escala en Alepo estan las “Fuerzas Tigre” del Ejército Árabe Sirio que, según informes, se estarían quedando en el Palmira, a pesar de que su comandante, el coronel Suheil al-Hassan, está liderando la operación.

Las Fuerzas Tigre no se necesitarán por mucho tiempo, gracias al despliegue generalizado de unidades paramilitares iraquíes, Hezbolá, el Cuerpo de la Guardia Revolucionaria Iraní (IRGC), la 65ta Brigada de Irán (Boinas Verdes), y Liwaa Fatimiyún (brazo militar afgano del CGRI).

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
