BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah forces are preparing for a new offensive in the northwestern countryside of Aleppo after taking a 3 month long hiatus to concentrate on more pressing fronts around the province.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command has been preparing for an offensive in the northwestern countryside for quite some time; especially, after putting their operations on hold last year near the ‘Anadan Plain.

In preparation for this offensive, the Syrian Arab Army, Hezbollah, and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary) have sent a large number of reinforcements to the northwestern sector of Aleppo, concentrating most of the military personnel near the Al-Zahra Association Quarter.

As one can expect, the Syrian government offensive will concentrate on the Layramoun District that is located just south of the jihadist stronghold of ‘Anadan.

The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham have also begun sending reinforcement to the Al-Zahra front, as they expect the massive assault to begin in the coming weeks.

This is a good move. Aleppo city is still not safe as long as some rebels groups are still on its western borders

Los grupos mercenarios en Idlib después de estar enfrentados han firmado acuerdo de no agresión, ahora también se preparan para gran ofensiva a la ciudad de Alepo.
La fuerza aérea tiene que emplear bombas de mayor poder destructivo para eliminar toda la jauría de mercenarios por supuesto con ayuda de lluvia de misiles.

Why should I? This is an English language site with English language users, it’s a given that people type in English! It’s extremely rude to do otherwise. He clearly understands the language, being able to reply in response to articles, so he has no excuse at all. Making us have to translate everything he types when he doesn’t even have any reason to is really, really rude.

Just press the button TRANSLATE and choose your preferred language and the system will translate it to you automatically. There are many people here reading news about Middle East who don’t speak and/or write English.

Yes, and they have specific pages they can go to, whereas this page isn’t in Spanish on this site, therefore he can fluently understand English, to type his comment. Therefore he can type it too, but he chooses not to. Pressing translate takes ages and it is UNNECESSARY as I’m saying.

Kit, I completely agree with you. Nestor has no business at all making the other 99% of commenters translate his comments just so everyone else can understand him. My first language isn’t English either but this is an English language site and the article and comments are in English. Ironically, alMasdar has a Spanish site but Nestor seems to not have found it..

I feel like the “moderate” terrorists should just be left alone for the time being. The Daeshbags are in complete collapse in every front and have a lot more land and resources up for grabs – the SAA should put more attention on chasing those cockroaches to Tabqa, As Sukhnah, and if all goes well later to Raqqa and breaking the Siege of Deir ez Zor. The “Moderate” head choppers are increasingly fading into irrelevance as they have been kicked out of every where except Idlibstan. There is currently a civil war in Idlibstan and the SAA should just hold… Read more »
