    How come there are two 4th Mechanized Divisions in Syria? One operating in Aleppo and the other in Damascus. Dumb question but I'm puzzled. There used to be a 4th and 14th division operating outside of Damascus, considered to be the two top loyal Army Divisions. The brigades operating outside of Aleppo are those of the 4th Division so perhaps the second 4th operating outside of Damascus is actually the 14th being mixed up by the media as per usual.

    Well not whole division is sent to Aleppo, some of their components are in Aleppo others stayed in Damascus, they are present in almost whole Syria.

    Then you have the "moderates" in Bayanoon, just next door



    Same-ish age group, dark faces, serial killer looks, scripted interviews and an empty village with no civvies and no life.

    Wow those 4 guys are like the embodiment of Black-market sales.

    From left to right: Egyptian MISR (handle), Bulgarian old style SGL (handle), Type 56-1 (handle, gas system, hooded front sight), and what looks like an Izhmash refugee version (grandaddy should check his AA setup on that sight).

    Also, some twitter says the Kurds have taken control of the Menagha airport.

    Btw, the kurds in the western enclave are not YPG, are they?? I'm confused.
    The only kurds to be trusted and to be carried along are the leftist YPG (& PKK), other kurds are going to backstab and ready to lick some murican arse.

    I think maybe 8km...
    Btw, do not take all the maps coming out to be 100% accurate, leave some margin for errors.

    Peto's scales are accurate. That green area occupied by the rebels is roughly 25km from the south to the north.

    Most probably Iran is sending IRGC special units as welcome delegation for Saudis. Anyway an IRGC division will well improve SAA capabilities to fight with terrorists.

    Looks like they want to up the tempo, to get as much done and dusted as soon as possible to help head the Saudis/Turks off at the pass, so to speak.

    Iranians and Iraqis will simply level entire towns. Something SAA is not willing to do. If this war is to end this century, that has to happen.
