The large-scale offensive by the extremist rebels at Tal Al-‘Eiss has forced the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command to reconsider their postponement of the southern Aleppo operations after a long hiatus to concentrate on Palmyra and Khanasser.

According to a senior officer from the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Armed Forces, Hezbollah, and Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have sent a large convoy of soldiers to the southern Aleppo front in order to restart their imperative offensive to clear the remaining villages under extremist rebel control on the Idlib border.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah have a large number of soldiers at the towns of Al-Safirah and Hader in southern Aleppo; however, they do not have enough men there to launch a major offensive to retake Tal Al-‘Eiss and Al-Zorbah.

With these necessary reinforcements from eastern Homs and the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains, the pro-government forces will be able to recapture the initiative in southern and western Aleppo.

The so called truce has given the rebels time and space to re-organize, the Gevene negotiations seem to faill, and Syria and its allies could have window of opportunity until next year when the US will likely have more hawkish president. that means destroying the power of rebels in Idlib and parts of Aleppo must be periority. I do think going to Der al Zor and Raqqa is the best strategy for Syrian army because the the main threat is the rebels and Nusra front in Idlib, so I think re-starting Aleppo and hopefully Idlib offiejsives is good decision. what… Read more »
