Updated Map of Aleppo Battle

New map of the Battle of Aleppo. As you can see, the SAA is now in full control of the Industrial City in the Sheikh Najjar District. The battle has now moved to the Handarat District, as the SAA continues to flank the Islam(ist) Front. Also, the Republican Guard has arrived in west Aleppo to clear the Al-Rashiddin, Al-Zahra, and eventually, Anadan.

Looking at the map…..it looks like it’s still a long fight to go….but, I have faith with the SAA…and the Syrian people……..

iShit on one end, AnusRats on the other….

Talking about South Lebanon…..isn’t that Hezbollah’s stronghold…….I wonder if they’d react to the bombing by the Israelis…….I’m talking about Syrper’s post on FB….

if they would bomb the Israeli’s, they would blame Assad.

Israhell has bombed Syria again in the last hours, as revenge for one rocket which hit the occupied Golan (and which was fired by the snackbarians which Israhell supports)

Thanks, Chevi. You’re pretty smart, and probably noticed, too, that ISIS is presenting a consolidated front. If you check the Wikimap http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Syrian_Civil_War_detailed_map you’ll note that ISIS owns everything due north to the Turkish border, and east to the Euphrates, excepting a few isolated pockets of ‘other’ rebels. You’ll also note that there are at least two border crossings into Turkey through which to push men and weapons. ISIS’ left flank is anchored on that big honkin’ lake, the right flank is probably anchored on the Turkish border. ISIS presentation makes me think that it has a unified command, with experienced… Read more »

Thanks Arklight, i have noticed that they are occupying areas next to the rivers as i’ve said in a previous post, you are correct in your assessment, but i would start from Jabbul, then work my way to free the military base and keep gong north. that water is important to them, throw them out and then let them die of thirst, the SAAF can bomb the areas next to the rivers first to a pulp as i don’t see fk all towns (might be wrong), i’m not sure why Syria doesn’t have many drones in the sky.

Chevi: They could also be using the rivers for transport, but I don’t know that and have only seen mention of it in posts from way back, where SAAF sank boats transporting enemy troops or supplies. On a couple of lakes, as I recall. I don’t know that Syria does NOT have a lot of drones in the sky, but I’m sure that they have some, judging from tidbits out of Homepage posts over time. If they do have drones in operation, I’d guess they’d be sneak and peek as opposed to shoot and scoot drones. Iran, by all accounts,… Read more »

Arklight and Chevi, to break ISIS from northern Syria is critical to close the Turkish border entrance they control, meaning a striking SAA advance into Al Bab, Manjib and take Jaranblus and Tall Abyad, with their short supply line closed from the friendly Turks, ISIS would be weakened in northern Syria, that counting the Kurds would be in the same fight since few border crossing are in dispute among ISIS and Kurds.

On the the eastern Aleppo, I agree with Chevi, taking Jabbul and Dayir Hafir firts then trust forward from there.

Just counting the number of flags, SAA has 33 in the main fighting arena, ISIS 16 and the other rebels 22. This is not counting the SAA pockets in the East and West. If the flags represent a roughly equal number of fighters, then SAA is the strongest one but is outnumbered. Also, ISIS’s forces are concentrated in a pretty narrow front, and it looks like they could easily take over the north of the map if they wanted to…

Hi, E. ISIS’ front, carrying the apparent dispositions past the map boundaries, the front is very broad – – looks like something from WW II – – , troops deployed in a north-south line, facing west. with troops and materiel coming in from Turkey to stage in the desert to the east, they can put together a real roundhouse punch, absent sorties by SAAF. YPG is fighting hard up north, east of Euphrates, but their numbers are limited and they have no air support. Watch the Wikimap
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Syrian_Civil_War_detailed_map
and the theater map
http://www.fps-predators.com/#/middle-east-conflict/4585140400 to see where this goes.

Arklight, you are right in many aspects, this has been and still will be a tough fight until the end, no walk in the park indeed. I do have some reflections that may be useful for our friends readers. 1. As we have seen in the past 2 yrs, Syria adopted the strategy of regrouping, for that paid the price of letting part of the country in terrorists hands, and step by step liberating critical areas, Al Qusayr, Qalamoun, Lattakia, Homs and the fight goes on in Damascus and Aleppo. 2. There will a lot of cities to be freed,… Read more »

This is an interesting digression. Great urban centres like Aleppo and Damascus have the maximum priority for the Syrian Government as their importance is strategically and politically huge. I like your military anticipation for Aleppo’s front, looks like a really hard fight indeed. Although the total encirclment is almost imminent, I find challenging the SAA will then keep open the 2 fronts leaving the Black Hole of Idlib without proper counter-measures. It can’t sustain a war of attrition. Most likely when Aleppo will be sealed off it will be more easy to launch an assault on the border with Tukey… Read more »

Hi, C. I understand the shift in Syrian military operational doctrine which has worked just fine against the motley rats, but ISIS is an wholly different animal, very well able to adapt and move forward. If Syrian military command can make counter adaptations, fine. The SAA Aleppo campaign got a huge kick in the crotch with the fall of Maarrat al Nu’sman, a circumstance that it’s really hard to justify. Air cargo operations have limits, having as much to do with maintainance cycles and crew fatigue as with risk of battle damage/loss and the physical limitations of transport aircraft. Maarrat… Read more »

Apparently the Syrian Army caught CIA agents plotting with ISIS and Arab neighbours in al-Raqqa? This would be incredible if it’s real.

Probably the command group of Syrian intelligence is that “spoke English” in attacking Raqqa (according to iranian agency) a few days ago, so probably in that way confused the CIA agents and thus achieved a spectacular coup and many VIP prisioners. Now we can understand why the terrorists have always had interest in attacking the barracks of the Sirian air force intelligence, definitely one of the best groups in the world of intelligence.
Confirmed this news may give an interesting turn the tide of war

ISIS has an established MO in Syria at this stage. They rarely take on the SAA in set-piece confrontations. They wait until the Islamic Front, Nusra, FSA, or JAI conquers an area. Then when these groups move on to another area or become too weakened to hold their territory, ISIS moves in and takes over. They are into state building with what they can grab, not marching on Damascus, They are parasites on parasites, and very good at it. Faced with overwhelming force, they have the tactical sense to withdraw. The SAA seems to have adopted the right strategy in… Read more »

thanks for these analysis I see the situation clearer now with ISIS and their state building They have been very clever both in not been interested in Damascus as such and the reasons they clear out towns. They obviously have a whole different command structure to the other savages I do believe the SAA is going to take Aleppo soon as the symbolic effect is huge. After that phase 1 of the struggle will have been won and internationally recognised as such ( though in maybe not explicitly by all countries)that Syria has survived the invasion. And more importantly Syria… Read more »

The previous articles of SyrPer had the SAA inside the city of Haritan, Al Bab Surrounded and Manbji threatened, none of that was true. This latest map appears much more accurate and reveals 2 things, SAA tactics and strategies, and Aleppo (rebel controlled) will not surrender, withdrawal or even be surrounded in 5 days as forecasted by SyrPer. SAA strategy reveals that it does not have enough manpower to drive the rebels to the borders and control hostile provincial villages ( at this time ), so it aims to control the population centers. Interesting! A logical first step for Assad… Read more »

By the way you are talking i can tell you are misinformed. Don’t know if aleppo is going to be fully encircled in 5 days, but it looks like it doesn’t going to take long. You keep repeating that SAA has not enough men and this stoy is being repeated over and over in western media to portray an image of a losing Syrian army. The Syrian Army has a lot of manpower that is why it is able to fight on multiple fronts at the sametime. Another propaganda story made up by the same journalists is that the SAA… Read more »

My comments included, ( at this time ) when I was talking about the current SAA manpower shortage in Northern Syria. I realize there is at least 8 different fronts going on in Syria ( Darra, Deir Ez Zor, Damascus, Homs, Hama, Idlib, Latakia, Qalamoun and Aleppo ). Western MSM doesn’t say the SAA is made up of only Christians and Alawites only, that’s propaganda someones telling you. I watch western MSM that says the sectarian groups of Syria are not evenly represented in the SAA, especially lopsided in its more elite troops and its officer core. Alawites are said… Read more »

My friend, you tell me which army around the world you have proved statistics about religion and maybe someone from the SAA will handle one for you. What you ask is not relevant, what is relevant is that all armed forces in Syria (SAA, NDF etc…) are made up mostly by Sunnis, no matter what their belief is they are true Syrians and they represent 70%+ of the total population. All other religious group in Syria do not have enough men to make up the Syrian armed forces (I am not counting Kurds here), just not enough people, just that.… Read more »

Free, the MSM promotes all sorts of really stupid story lines and talking points. SAA is hard pressed right now, but certainly not losing. Everybody know that SAA and SAAF are ‘all inclusive’ – – well everyone except the brick brains who think MSM always has the straight skinney. I don’t even own a TV anymore.

Anon, population centers are a seperate military issue; that population centers are concurrent with transport hubs is what makes them strategic. Recall, if you will, that Bastogne was a one horse town in the middle of nowhere, except for the roads nexus..

OT: Putin meets his fellow tribesmen in a discussion allegedly about preventing another ‘Holocaust’, but in reality is all to do with the situation in Israel and the Middle East. http://voiceofrussia.com/2014_07_12/Russia-uniquely-promises-to-do-all-in-its-power-to-prevent-Holocaust-from-repeating-Russian-Chief-Rabbi-1542/ Could the timing be any more coincidental? Syrian authorities probably know all about Vlad and his political/family links but they should nonetheless be on their guard because Putin will not tolerate any war on Israel, or any situation which may put this settler state and its future at risk. That is why everyone is raising a cry for a ceasefire because a prolonged war will throw all equations out… Read more »

Who exactly is advocating a war on Israel? The Saudis, Turkish, Jordanians and Egyptians sure aren’t. Syria and Hezbollah have a more urgent problem in their own backyards for the foreseeable future, and when they win they’ll want to rebuild for a while instead of participating in any new wars. Ditto Iraq and Iran. The Palestinians are nearly powerless, whatever they may want to do. Doesn’t look to me like Putin will have to choose anytime soon. Meanwhile, he’s trying really hard to create cracks in the NATO coalition that’s backing Banderastan (post-coup Ukraine). He’s also trying to erode public… Read more »
