ALEPPO, SYRIA (12:00 A.M.) – The largest battle to take place in this 5 year-long conflict is quickly approaching Aleppo City, as both the Syrian Armed Forces and jihadist rebels mobilize thousands of men to gain the upper-hand on the battlefield.

Reports from the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command indicate that the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) have amassed thousands of militants in preparation for their large-scale counter-offensive against the government forces and their allies in southern and western Aleppo.

The supreme commander of the Syrian Armed Forces in Aleppo, Major General Za’id Saleh, told Al-Masdar News on Wednesday that only 2,500 militants remain inside the eastern Aleppo neighborhoods.

Lifting the siege on the east Aleppo neighborhoods is one of Jaysh Al-Fateh’s main objectives during this upcoming offensive; it will also require a large number of military personnel to break-through the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses again.

According to local reports from the Aleppo Governorate, Jaysh Al-Fateh, specifically Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front), has prepared at least 20 VBIEDs (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) for this upcoming offensive, along with amassing thousands of fighters.

Not to be outdone, the Syrian Armed Forces have sent a large number of reinforcements from the Tartous Governorate to Aleppo City in order to combat the upcoming jihadist offensive.

This might be the last chance for the jihadist rebels reestablish themselves in the Aleppo Governorate because they have lost a considerable amount of territory over the course of three years.

This seems to be Amerika$ Plan A and also plan B. Both are for the takeover of a Secular Syria by common criminals who will do the bidding of the U$.

There would be a genocide of millions but the U$ makes profit out of chaos and barbarity.

May fortune and God protect the SAA and their allies in the test that is to come.

Better hope they didn’t forgot Sun Tzu, Von Clausewitz, Vauban, Vatutin and Machiavelli…
Floryan : there are NO good guys in this tragic affair. Personally, all I want is that all these na’al ‘dine jihadists leave the Syrian people live their lives and any other too, anyway, these morons tricked into a so-called holy war then are killed for a f*****g pipeline and for a salary I wouldn’t even get out of my bed for so even less risking my life!

Plan B is in fact Plan A that have been halted last year following Russia’s deployment in Syria.

Well,you can call me whatever you like but the fact is all those fighting the Syrian government militarily are nothing short of terrorists.Their modus operandi encapsulates suicide bombings and the likes and they will surely be defeated.

I say go for it. Please make lots of noise and wear bright colors when you counter-attack to liberate your brothers in Eastern Aleppo, preferably in daylight when the sky is clear.
