Aleppo, Syria (11:30 A.M.) – Major General Qassim Suleimani, the commander of Iran’s elite “Quds Force,” made a secret trip to southern Aleppo on Tuesday in order to discuss the upcoming large-scale offensive with his counterparts in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Among the many people that met with the Iranian general on Tuesday, Major Duraid Abu ‘Ammar of the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” was likely his most important meeting.

Major Abu ‘Ammar is considered one of the highest ranking officers in the Tiger Forces and one of Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan’s (leader of the Tiger Forces) most trusted commanders.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Tiger Forces commander and Iranian general discussed the upcoming offensive’s battle plans.

For the first time in this war, the commanders of the Tiger Forces and Iranian military advisors are coordinating a wide-scale offensive in the Aleppo Governorate that is geared to retake a large chunk of territory from the jihadist rebels.

While several Syrian Arab Army units fight alongside Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), the Tiger Forces were one of the few that did not directly coordinate with the latter.

No official date has been set for this southern Aleppo offensive; however, it is expected to start in the coming weeks, as the Tiger Forces and Republican Guard conclude their operations near Al-Ramouseh.
