Syrian military preparing Aleppo offensive with Russian air support

The Syrian military is preparing to undertake an operation against opposition forces in Aleppo with Russian air support, said Syria's Prime Minister Wael al-Halaki on Sunday.

"We, together with our Russian partners, are preparing for an operation to liberate Aleppo and to block all illegal armed groups which have not joined or have broken the ceasefire deal," he said according to Russia's Tass news.

"Russian aviation will help the Syrian army's ground offensive operation," Dmitry Sablin, a member of the upper house of Russia's parliament, told Russia's RIA news agency.

Such a move will likely put both the Syrian ceasefire and peace talks under considerable strain. The initial Geneva talks this year fell through in February when the Syrians launched a ground offensive around Aleppo with Russian air support, they were restarted after the Americans and the Russians negotiated a ceasefire which was implemented on February 27.

The Turkish sponsored jihadists who've been shelling Kurdish neighborhoods with chemical weapons this past week will be very sorry soon, they miscalculated badly AGAIN by listening to Turkey, no cease fire will save you from what's coming.

Ceasefire? you mean that lull in the fighting that let Assad and Iran regroup? that's how Iran does business LOL

Looks like Assad will be tearing the 'moderate' opposition a new one soon. Doesn't matter if the ceasefire was Iranian Russian or American idea, it was a genius move and the jihadists fell for it :)

The Ceasefire was used by Turkey to resupply and rearm the Syrian terrorists like Al Nusra front.

That shows how the so called coalition forces like America, Sudi Arabia and turkey are not really serious about combatting IS.. Because they creat and need them. Go on Russia show the American how it should be

US only can trust the Kurds, it's been long due that he dumps Turkey and supports Kurds unconditionally.
