One week after a large convoy of Russian T-90 tanks arrived to the city of Al-Safira in southeastern Aleppo, another report has surfaced that confirmed more reinforcements have traveled to the economic capital of northern Syria in order to participate in this long-awaited government offensive.

According to the detailed military report, over 800 soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), National Defense Forces (NDF), Kata’eb Hezbollah (Iraqi paramilitary) and Liwaa Al-Badr (Iraqi paramilitary) made their way from the Syrian capital of Damascus to the city of Aleppo on early Saturday morning.

In a matter of three weeks, almost 3,000 military personnel have made the arduous journey from Damascus to the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate; however, their ultimate objective and their whereabouts have not yet been revealed.

There is much speculation that the next Aleppo offensive will take place in the northern countryside, where the two predominately Shi’i towns of Al-Zahra’ and Nubl are currently encircled by the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Others have speculated that the offensive will geared to capture the Bab Al-Hawa border-crossing into the Hatay Province of Turkey; this has also been the topic of many military analysts.

The only thing that is for sure at the moment is the large presence of pro-government military personnel in the Aleppo Governorate – where they plan to attack next cannot be confirmed.

It is going to be aleppo city. Plus al-bab, because the SAA needs a base to start its final offensive against the so called rebels in idlib, so the next offensive is on jisr alshughur and aleppo plus murek to place a three side attack on jaish al-fateh to end its existing, opening the door to finally being able to fight ISIS using its all resources and this would end the rebellion and put a stop to the outer intervention in syria…..
