The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces (NDF) have recently launched an offensive at the Deir Hafer Plains of east Aleppo in order to lift the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) two year long siege of the Kuweires Military Airport.

However, the Syrian Arab Army and the National Defense Forces have repeatedly halted their past offensives after the terrorist group redeployed a number of their fighters to quell the encroaching soldiers that were advancing along this volatile front in east Aleppo.

Recently, the Syrian Armed Forces have restarted their east Aleppo offensive, but this time, they are being assisted by both the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) and the Russian Air Force.

As a result of this aerial support, the Syrian Armed Forces have been able to recapture the imperative hilltop of Tal Rayman, while also taking control of Al-Salihiyah; this aforementioned village was used by ISIS to launch repeated offensives near the Syrian Government’s main supply route along the Khanasser Highway.

In addition to their airstrikes, the Russian military advisors that oversee the Syrian Armed Forces’ operations in northern Syria have now taken complete command of the east Aleppo offensive to lift the siege of the Kuweires Military Airport.

Rumors have surfaced that the Russians plan to use the airfields at the Kuweires Military Airport as their future base in northern Syria; however, sources from the Syrian Arab Army were unable to confirm whether or not these rumors possessed any validity.

Don’t see the point of Russia using the Kuweires military airport, it doesn’t extend their range into Syria all that much.

Now them recapturing a Airport in central Syria would make much more tactical sense as it would put russian planes right on top of ISIS and the terrictory it controles.

If Russians want to commit a lot of ammunition and concentrate troops, they could sustain the offensive in this direction until it reaches Euphrates. Because flank positions would need to be secured etc. they would rather do in in stages, but it would be a significant goal: separating ISIS from Turkey (I do not trust Erdogan to stop supplies) and connecting SAA to YPG overland. Airport itself is not an asset right now, later it could help logistics for advances in Euphrates region. Right now it is a valuable position that can be reinforced by commandoes, tie up ISIS forces,… Read more »
