BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces division has been given orders to redeploy from the northern countryside of the Homs Governorate to the southern provinces of Syria.

According to a military report, the Tiger Forces will lead the offensive to retake the rebel-held areas in the Dara’a and Al-Quneitra governorates.

The Tiger Forces will be fighting alongside the 4th Mechanized Division and Republican Guard troops that were recently taking part in the battle for southern Damascus.

With Damascus and Homs secured, the Syrian Army can now concentrate on southern Syria for the first time since the arrival of the Russian military in late September of 2015.

El ejercito Sirio no solo enfrentará a los terroristas también tendrá en frente de batalla al gobierno de Israel, en este caso tendrá respaldo aéreo y misiles que lanzará Siria como de costumbre para apoyar a sus terroristas.

Pues, eventualmente, Siria tendrá que seguir el modelo de Hizbolah en Liban, hasta 2000: Una guerra asimétrica inexorable, hasta que el ultimo soldado israelí se vaya del Golan.

The foundation for permanent peace in Syria should be the same as that for Taiwan: a change-over in the government structure. The UN should provide Syria the basic outline for a constitution that will facilitate lasting peace and development. The constitution shouldinclude the universal values of freedom, democracy, human rights and rule of law, and organization and elements such as the four branches. The document should allow Syria to prosper under conditions of lasting peace. For more, see the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development.
