Two weeks after the breaking the siege on Nubbul and al-Zahra towns in Aleppo northern countryside, it is still quite difficult to understand the strategic implications which this military operation yielded in terms of military importance.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) successfully severed the supply lines connecting the militants active within the city of Aleppo with the Syrian-Turkish border in the light of liberation of several strategic cities ; most notably Tell Rifaat, Ratyan and Hardantin.
Meanwhile, the Syrian Arab Army units and its allies managed to wrest control of Azaz-Aleppo highway which put the operations rooms of Fatah Halab, al-Nusra Front and Ansar al-Sharia in a tight blockade leading to a complete collapse of remaining pockets of the armed militias in Aleppo’s northern front.
Following their efforts to ally themselves with the so-called ISIS terrorist organization and the escape of large numbers of militants from the clashes with the Syrian Arab Army, the observers believe that the armed militias began to suffer the loss of their once supportive milieu.
The field sources confirmed Syrian people’s strong allegiance to their country by observing the flag raising ceremony in all government offices particularly in the areas which are still under militants’ control.
It is now apparent that in addition to the series of defeats the Syrian Arab Army inflicted on terrorist groups and the liquidation of a number of militants’ senior leaders; political regimes which sponsor the terrorists have been convinced the inevitability of sitting at the negotiation table with the Syrian government to put a limit for the hopeless conditions embarrassing Turkey, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and United States after five years of bloody conflict.
