According to Russian bloggers, the number of units of the Russian citizens who are fighting on the side of Assad, not more than two thousand people, which can not seriously affect the course of the ground operation.
The Syrian war is anything but a civil war ,is a world proxy war of NATO mayor powers
and gulf kingdoms with the help of a hundred of thousands of mercenaries , big part of them
Syrians but also a major number of them foreigners. Jihadist from 80 countries are fighting in
the side of ISIS and Alnusra.
i have been reading reports from Syrian insiders sites As early as 2012 ,When the ultimate battle field was Homs and Aleppo still in Syria control. there was 3,000 foreigners mercenaries alone in that city ,including French Special soldiers. When there was CNN journalist in Syria also helping the terrorist. According to Thierry Meyssan who live in Syria since the conflict began..
and was witness on the Homs battle to liberate it ,when it was the main battlefield in the Syrian conflict. The terrorist have thousands of anti tank missiles and used them as if they were sniper rifles.. The terrorist had Robots controlled by remote.. Milan missiles.. etc.. Thermal Missiles.
This was when the west was NOT officially arming rebels supposedly and only supplying them
with "food" and "non lethal help".
So there are thousands of Special forces in Syria from France ,UK ,US ,Israel ,Turkey,Saudi Arabia ,Jordan and mercenaries from 80 nations of the world.. There are training centers of terrorist in Texas USA.. according to Veterans Today. And they travel through all the world and arrive in Syria through Turkey NATO base. They receive weapons there ,food and transportation to Syria. and could receive training too. The US airforce is in Syria to supply realtime position of Syrian army to the terrorist and logistic to the terrorist for their advance but also drop weapons and supply to ISIS and all other terrorist fighting. Israel and Turkey Airforce provide a buffer zone not only in their territories but also inside Syria near the border. Whenever the Syrian airforce try to bomb the terrorist inside Syria close to borders to Turkey or Israel the Syrian planes are harassed or shut down by Israel or Turkey. and Syrian army also was being fired cross border by Turkey 50km range Artillery whenever they get close to it. Same with israel.
In short the Syrian war is a much bigger war than the one in Ukraine , you have the whole of NATO ,its bigger mayor powers,helping there in one way or another. the countries above more directly.. but indirectly Europe .including Germany helps the terrorist with sanctions on Syria economy for defending itself of a criminal aggression on its nation.
You will only see videos on youtube of terrorist poorly equipped ,with primitive home made weapons defeating the Syrian army at times. But don't be mistaken this is all propaganda PR.
The terrorist itself ISIS and Alnusra receive their orders from the US and its coalition. Pentagon General in coordination with Israel and Turkey and Saudis are leading the offensive of ISIS in
Syria and IRAQ. Syrian army have captured Stinger missiles ,expensive French Anti tank Rockers ,Tows and NATO ARtillery and lots of Israeli weapons too. Captured Sniper rifles that only NATO use..and tons of more weapons . and thousands of NATO special forces there have to be more than 10,000 in Syria assisting their trained terrorist in the fight. The total force
of the Terrorist factions have to be in the 150,000 fighters. such a big number operation require
an enormous logistic in supply of weapons ,munitions , food. and this is Russia wants to seal the border of Turkey ,because is the main supply line of ISIS. but Israel and Jordan too..use its border to supply infinite resources of fighters and weapons to the terrorist fighting Assad.Is a world War what Syria face..and claiming that Syria army is just fighting "rebels" who wanted democracy and freedom is an insult to the human intelligence.
Just recently read reports of Ukrainians fighting on the side of ISIS. I don't know of any
modern nation with modern army in Europe that its country alone can face a war ,like the Syrians have to suffer and survive. Where all its borders is full of enemies and they supplying endless. Syria major problem aside of being in middle east.. is that is not a major power with nukes.. So border enemy nations can continue sending Mercenary fighters ,special forces or terrorist endlessly without consequences for their nation. Had Syria had Nukes.. in the hundreds.. you can be sure none of its neighbors will be helping terrorist or sending its own special forces so openly and in full force as they doing. Knowing that if Syria falls , Syria will retaliate nuking completely those countries.
and again.. i repeat.. that NATO special forces ,neither Israel special forces working in Syria. upload a single video of their killed Syrian soldiers or their captured town and regions.. Only the terrorist they use as meat shields does that. and they take all the credit for any NATO special forces successful attack on Syrian army positions .The west want the world to believe that Assad is only fighting civilians that one day took weapons against a dictator to fight for their freedom.
