BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new assault in the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Tuesday, targeting the Islamic State (ISIS) held village of Rasm Al-‘Abed just south of the Kuweires Military Airport.

Russian airstrikes would lead the way today, hitting several Islamic State targets around the Deir Hafer Plains of east Aleppo.

Following the flurry of airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the village of Rasm Al-‘Abed, marking the first time in almost a year that the government forces have conducted a military operation in the Deir Hafer Plains.

According to some pro-government accounts, the Syrian Arab Army has liberated the village of Rasm Al-‘Abed; however, Al-Masdar was unable to confirm this report.

The Syrian Arab Army’s main offensive is expected to begin in the coming weeks, as they look to put an end to the Islamic State’s presence in east Aleppo.

Maybe trying to avoid Deir-Ezzor to fall would be more important, no?
Thus, I definitively think that Russia should field more air power in Syria.
Many weird situations would have been avoided if there was more air support.

Stopping the east alleppo offensive is not the awnser. Deir ezzor gets their airsupport from Al Qamishly and Aleppo from Humaymim so it does not take airpower away from defending Dear ezzor. They could send a couple of more planes to Qamishly but not much more because that airport is not build and staffed for that kind of influx in activity. If the want to reeinforce Dear ezzor they neer to airlift or parachute in more fighters. They best chance for deir ezzor at the moment is to hold on to their strongholds like the airport and 137 regiment base… Read more »
