The Syrian government forces are able to conduct 2 offensives at the separate fronts in southern and southwestern Aleppo due to the Syrian Army’s Republican Guard reinforcements recently arrived to Aleppo from Damascus. The advances are also supported by massive air strikes of Syrian and Russian warplanes. According to the sources of Fars News Agency, the Russian Aeropsace Forces have conducted some 200 airstrikes in southwestern Aleppo since yesterday. Air strikes have also continued to hit Jaish al-Fatah’s rear in the Aleppo-Idlib countryside.

          The reality is that you are losing. FSA does not even know what freedom or democracy means. You are all wahhabi stooges and mercenaries. This is not going to end well for your kind.

      This site is informative though yes, very pro Assad and pro Putin. However, this war has swings in each direction so hard to point to one key battle or other. Think WW2, as Allies were bogged down at Anzio but invaded Normandy; or Soviets pushed forward in south but were pushed back in north.
      When I see links to VT, GR and al Masdar, I know that this site is biased towards genocidalists, fantasists, conspriacists and all around loons.
