    Strangely, saa is not using the lessons learned in Aleppo in Damascus CS. Clearly, the numbers of saa attacking the militant strongholds are way too negligible, and their tactics are well understood by militants. They are only attacking the one and only point, and militants can mass their numbers there.

    There is no way in hell Jobar or Ayn Tarma will be re-taken like this. 300 kia in last month, with only 2 blocks re-taken. They should end this catastrophe immediately, start digging tunnels, and ask ru for help in preparing a mission.
