Hundreds of soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and other pro-government militias poured into the provinces of Aleppo and Homs on Monday morning, as they prepare for two massive offensives against the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The first wave of reinforcements were sent from the National Defense Forces stronghold of Masyaf in east Tartous to the Syrian Government’s stronghold at Al-Safira in east Aleppo; these men have joined the entrenched soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” (Tiger Forces branch) that have already began an operation to lift the two year long ISIS siege of the Kuweries Military Airport.

According to a military source in Aleppo City, the total number of soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army that have been deployed to the western countryside of the Deir Hafer Plains is reportedly as high as 4,500 military personnel.

These military personnel will not be alone, however: the Russian Air Force is providing the Syrian Arab Army with necessary air cover against the ISIS terrorists that are spread across this rugged terrain inside the Deir Hafer Plains of east Aleppo.

Meanwhile, in the Homs Governorate’s northern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army sent over 300 military personnel to the Hama-Homs axis in order to reinforce the soldiers that are preparing to launch a full-scale operation to capture the Al-Rastan Plains of Homs.

Similar to the east Aleppo front, the terrain in northern Homs is very rugged and very difficult to travel through; if the Syrian Armed Forces were to capture this imperative area,  they will need every bit of assistance from the Russian Air Force.

Although I have worked in the military in my own country, the experience I have gained from following the war on Syria is huge, this is hybrid war with fifth generation warfare, well I would argue SAA has got very good chance to win the war with Russian airforce air cover, I would suggest SAA should not focus on capturing every city or town under rebel control , it is very difficult to flash rebels out of cities and towns, but SAA should encircle them, like Homs and Zabanani, , they should take strategic small towns, hills , roads, border… Read more »
