ALEPPO, SYRIA (8:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing for a new offensive in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo after nearly six months of inactivity at this front.

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army is planning to target the territory between the Kuweires Military Airport and Al-Bab.

The main objective will be to expel the Islamic State from the Al-Safira Plains, while also building a buffer-zone around the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District of Aleppo city.

On Saturday, the Syrian Arab Army carried out a surprise attack against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham near Nasrallah village, killing a dozen terrorists and destroying 2 of their 4×4 technical vehicles.

There is no set date in place for this planned offensive; however, it is expected to begin in the coming weeks.

You exaggerate a little : USAF did 2 stikes against SAA since they are operating over Syria, VKS (RuAF) did two stries too against SAA. I’m not saying the Deir-Ezzor strike was deliberate or not as there are simply no proof of any of both possibilities in my intel gathering range but the fact is that USAF alone, not even USN or coalition dropped 41,500 bombs against ISIS so if your own AF drops as much ordnances against you, you’re in serious trouble… Things are much more complicated : there is a legal and official action against ISIS, now, US… Read more »
