Jim W. Dean – The current Syrian Arab Army offensive is a wonderful display of combined operations, good target Intel over a fluid battlefield, with artillery, air power… both fighter bombers and helicopters, supporting infantry and armor on the ground.
Jim W. Dean – We had news today that the SDF has agreed to let the US coalition use the Tabqa airport as a base. I am sure Damascus was not consulted, despite the Syrian defenders captured there by ISIS all having been executed.
Jim W. Dean – The Syrian coalition makes a snap decision in Aleppo to stop offensive operations to focus on getting civilians out of the newly taken territories. We will have 8000 more witnesses who can tell their stories now.
The Syrian government troops and Kurdish fighters have formed a coalition to stand against Turkish army’s incursion into Northern Syria, a retired Syrian army general said.
Jim W. Dean – To my astonishment, Damascus is still offering all the fighters in Aleppo a chance to walk out, including the foreigners. This will come back to haunt them, as these will be the terrorists wreaking havoc after there is a peace deal.

What happened is that Turkey in collaboration with Saudi Arabia support and protect terrorists instead of coordinating with the southern neighbor in fighting terrorism.
The situation remains tense in and around Aleppo City. After the liberation of the Mallah Farms, the Syrian Army troops are now deployed in only 1,5 km from the militants’ last supply line to Aleppo City – the Castello road.
Jim W. Dean – Palmyra will now become a key forward operation base for the continued offensive on Deir-Ezzor and Raqqa. As the Syrian opposition stalls the talks, its position just gets weaker. Syrian Parliamentary elections are just a few weeks away.
As international community and Syrian government welcome the newly-reached agreement on a temporary truce in Syria, the U.S. administration and its Saudi allies seek to wreak havoc in war-torn Syria and exploit the humanitarian ceasefire to al-Qaeda terrorists’ benefit,
