A colossal military convoy was seen, today morning, passing the Damascus highway to the rebel-held town of Darayya as the Syrian Army prepares for a wide-scale offensive against the southwestern suburbs.

A footage was filmed by local activists showing tens of army camouflaged vehicles, manned and equipped with medium-caliber machine guns and short-range rockets making their way to battleground Darayya.

Clashes between government troops and local insurgents have renewed recently after months of the shaky Russia-US brokered ceasefire has been implemented. The reasons behind such clashes are still unknown.

Daraya, located nearly 10 km to the southwest of the capital Damascus, has been an early hotspot of anti-government protests and subsequent bloody battles with the Syrian Army.

The rebels controlling Darayya have agreed on the February ceasefire brokered by Russia and the United States. Ever since, guns have been almost silenced; clearing the way for aid convoys to enter the besieged town.

The English on this site isn’t the best, and the bias shows, nonetheless, it’s often the only place reporting in such detail.

To the author, the standard English would be “dozens of vehicles”, we don’t use metric in this scenario 🙂

S.A. has given 500 TOWs (probably much less launchers).
But… Look what’s incoming, probably for east-Goutha :

“The “New Syrian Army” was reinforced with more United States trained fighters and was given a lot of supplies and weapons, the weapons include heavy and light machine guns and mortar systems, vehicles, ammo and night vision goggles.”
“some reports Jordan’s goal is 2 light mechanized battalions”

Thanks to our US “alliees” to train and arm loonies whom may rush into Europe one of these days! Maybe E.U. should consider to cut the military ties with the U.S. and consider OUR interests, i.e. tightening links with Russia…

About M.E.Briefing analysis : In fact, but some heads of state are too stupid or have not enough braincels to remind it, but when ‘baby’ Assad came in power, he wanted to do reforms but old Ba’ath sharks opposed it and the guy’s not an idiot, far from it : he’s not an Erdogan… Ba’ath party may have softened since and, once rid of all these fanatics like Jaysh, al-Sham, ISIS, FSA, al-Nusra and other scum, he may have a better grip on his party, such thing may implement a very much liberal society even if he stays in power.… Read more »
