    I assume no large offenses are being made in the centre of the city in order to preserve the infrastructure and avoid more civilian casualties.

    Avoiding urban warfare would definitely be smart thing.

    They might close the cauldron, dig in and wait for jihadists to start throwing meat at fortified positions trying to break in/out. Would be a low-risk approach for SAA.

    That is what I would do but I am nowhere near knowledgeable enough on military strategy so it's just guesswork on my end. dunno

    New map from our friend Petro! So many encirclements/cauldrons going on!

    If sucessful. 'Rebels' in the Quweiq plains will be cut of from the rest of the Rebels in northern Syria, and will remain locked inbetween SAA, YPG and ISIS they they have a direct line to Turkey.

    Rebels in Aleppo will be entierly boxed in once or 'if' SAA/Hezbollah operation succeds and will end up in a cauldron.

    The ISIS forces south of the town of Barlehiyah and west of Kueweires is being encircled as well.

    Petro's full analysis of progress to date at Aleppo: The Mother of all Battles is at http://southfront.org/map-the-battle-for-aleppo-the-mother-of-all-battles/#st_refDomain=t.co&st_refQuery=/2Fx93YvnNY

    He writes well. This is a key paragraph.


    The first day proved to be a full success for the Government forces. An important factor was – without doubt – the attacker’s air force. The SAA received very accurate and powerful close air support (CAS) by the Russian Airforce, which flew more than 200 sorties on the first day of the offensive. Due to the Russian CAS, many of the defense lines of the insurgents crumbled. The airpower also prevented insurgent reinforcements to reach the combat areas and – most importantly – destroyed many Command and Control Centers. The death of some of the most capable and high ranked leaders and field commanders will most likely hamper the insurgents defense capabilities further in the upcoming decisive days. Opposition sources confirmed the death of many senior leaders including insurgent’s Sham Legion’s commander and his deputy. The leader of Jaish al Islam in Aleppo area was also a confirmed casualty.

    Look at that guy with Eagle avatar, that's the prototypical US Neo-Con, and with the classic prima faci signs of multiple-personality disorder, which is classic characteristic of Neo-Conservatives. One day they're the biggest 'bulwarks' against Islamic extremists (allegedly), the next day they're the biggest apologists, sympathizers, and cheerleaders for violent Wahabbi/Salafi bearded goatf*ckers. Most conservatives in the United States aren't even aware that Ronald Reagan invited Islamo-fascists inside the White House:

    The jihadist above that will suicide.. LOL  and his terrorist friend telling him to
    "make it count" , in other words , to take with him more people lives . Russia can use
    this tweet as evidence that the "peaceful " moderates are nothing but terrorist ,who
    have no values for life.

    ABout Aleppo.. you don't need to physically encircle a city to cut it out from the outside.
    Once trucks and cars of the terrorist are are under visual range of Syrian artillery and or even better kornets.. (5km). it will be very hard,next to suicide to try to send supplies inside Aleppo.

    In fact the Syrian Army if they are fully well armed with Russia ,with enough 5km Kornets.. lets
    say thousands of them and very well reinforced their positions. They could use as tactic ,not to fully close the encirclement and leave a 5km area open. because that will give the false impression to jihadist that it is still open and that they have a chance to pass through the gate.

    If they fully close it.. then the attempts to cross the gate will end and jihadist will remain hidden inside. Syria army and Russia needs to try to force terrorist to leave the security of the cities ,using civilians as human shields. is more easier to get them outside cities.

    the advantage however of physically encircle aleppo however is that it will allow Syria army to
    free some soldiers and relocate them in other fronts.. this is specially true if the terrorist are very weakened and cannot counter attack and all they can do is hide inside cities.

    But to cut the supply lines , if the Syrian army is well supplied by Russia with decent stuff ,
    it will be possible to cut Rebels supply lines even from 30km distance. by throwing mines for example and by using accurate artillery ,in enought numbers.  still a crazy suicide muslin could get lucky and sneak with a motorbike with some luck.

    All this means ,that by just looking at the map of Syrian army positions ,is not always the case ,that is enough information, to know how well they doing. Because we don't know yet exactly what are their strategy and intentions. Somewhere i read , that the Syrian army was using
    and strategy *in some places* , of clearing a zone ,then retreating and allowing the terrorist to re-take an abandoned city and the bomb them again there,this was done to more easily target
    them ,to pick the place of fighting ,to lure them away of civilians populated zones for a fight.

    Mongols who developed one of the most effective tactics in the battlefield used a tactic that still today can be very effective. they simply charge with their horses into their enemies ,and attacked with bows from safe distance.. then lured their enemies away of their formations.
    provoking them to chase them ..and they later counter attack the split forces more easily. it was hit and run tactics. .with those tactics they conquered all Asia. Naturally rebels cannot effectively do that with Russian airforce in control of the airspace ,but Syrian army can.
    Yet instead of horses ,they can use motorbikes. and instead of bows they can use kornets.
    Tactics can take any form ,and retreats are not always a sign of defeat.

    With the right military hardware ,If Russia really operate with all the capabilities their army have, it is possible to cut any supply line even 30km away of it ,in norther Syria by mining roads and precision artillery (30km distance) ,making it really dangerous and close to suicide to try to cross any road by car ,using very good surveillance network.

    This means that right now.. Syrian army is withing 30km distance from Turkey border in northern aleppo and Russia have the tools to close the border with enough artillery and smart weapons. It all depends if Russia was ready to reveal all their cards to their enemy too early . It will be better if Russia save their best stuff ,for the defense of their base to stop an invading Turkey or NATO army.  definitively Russia will get a lot of valuable experience in Syria ,that will help them to fully understand how to fight radical Mercenaries ready to die , significantly armed and helped by NATO and their airforce
