BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has begun amassing troops in the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate as they prepare to launch a new offensive at this axis near the Idlib Governorate.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) sent reinforcements from the provincial capital, Damascus, and Homs to the southern countryside of the province. The reinforcements have reportedly arrived at the key town of Al-Hadher.

The source told Al-Masdar that the Syrian Arab Army is preparing to launch an offensive around the key town of Tal Al-‘Eis, which they briefly captured during their late 2015 offensive. The Syrian Army would later lose the town when Jaysh Al-Fateh launched a big counter-attack from Khan Touman.

This new Syrian Army offensive is expected to begin in conjunction with their upcoming operation to capture the strategic mountaintop town of Kabani. The Syrian Army has already launched a number of attacks on Kabani, but they have yet to begin their main assault on the town.

With a new front opened up in northwestern Syria, the Syrian Army troops in northwestern Hama should receive some relief as most of the jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels are currently concentrated at this axis.

Syria army has been having more than 6 months amassing troops everywhere and doing nothing but defending positions. This was so due to Russia-Turkey agreement which stopped SAA offensive on Idlib, to please Erdogan. Russia must stop plesing Turkey and allow SAA to carry out the full offensive on Idlib and get rid of terrorists and Turkish.

Never guessed that Putin’s game was a little more subtle than this? Look : – EU already rejected Turkey’s entry in the EU. – US are said having removed their 50x B61 nukes from Incirlik, allegedly to Romania. IMHO, ’twas a transit destination since Romania has no vaults and doesn’t participates the nuclear sharing. These have likely been dispatched between Germany, Italy, NL and Belgium. – Ever heard of a NATO ally getting US sanctions? Turkey already got some, and is likely to soon get more… – Turkey’s position in NATO is more and more compromised. Just think that MIT… Read more »

Los terroristas han tenido suficiente tiempo para armarse y proveer de mas mercenarios adiestrados para estas ofensivas gracias a Erdogan de la Hermandad Musulmana.
Putín ha pasado ser un idiota por dejarse manipular por el gobierno Turco.
