    The regime seems to be doing very little in response to this. Tactically inflexible 'Must take Mork, must take Mork, must take Mork....' thinking seems to mean they are just single mindedly focused on their own nearby offensive (despite a serious threat to its supply lines) and ignoring what the rebels are doing.
    Nothing new. It's almost like they don't care about the Hama-front.
    Rebels took Khan Shaykhun, without SAA even trying to counter. And now they are further advancing in Hama, and still they don't give a damn about it in Damascus.
    Even the town of Morek: They tried a couple of times last week, but it wasn't really a big offensive.

    I think they will do a counterattack in Hama when Qalamoun is cleansed of terrorists. HA and SAA are really busy eliminating the last pockets of resistance over there, and meanwhile, Mliha is finally on the edge of falling. (SAA reached Zebdeen yesterday) + SAA is pushing back the rebels in Jobar (once again), after the rebels took some important locations last week.

    Default Activists: Syrian Rebels Detonate Tunnels, Kill 13

    Insurgents fighting in Syria to oust President Bashar Assad detonated bomb-packed tunnels under buildings in the contested northern city of Aleppo on Tuesday, killing at least 13 pro-government troops, opposition activists said.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said rebels detonated explosives in two tunnels, dug under the ancient quarter of Aleppo that has been the site of some of the fiercest fighting in the Syrian conflict, now in its fourth year. The Observatory said the blasts killed at least 13 soldiers and pro-government militiamen late Tuesday. It said one bomb went off under a police station that likely housed troops.

    It is not as though they willingly let Khan Sheiykoun go - they repeatedly tried to stop it falling by attempting to break through at Mork but did not allocate enough troops or did not have enough available (where I agree is that they had / have higher priorities at the moment) troops to do that and were met with fierce resistance. As it happens the rebels have just regained (I think - hard to keep track) the hospital in Mork:

    The damage to the city that accompanied it is sad to see:

    Hezbollah, army to start operation against Al-Nusra Front in Arsal, says Labwe official

    BEIRUT - The head of the municipality of the Beqaa town of Labwe Ramez Amhaz said that Hezbollah would start an operation on Wednesday against Al-Nusra Front militants in the mountainous area of Arsal in cooperation with the Lebanese army and the Syrian army.

    The information that we have indicates that the operation will be [a cooperation] between the Lebanese army, the Syrian army and Hezbollah to put an end to terrorism along the border, Amhaz said in remarks published Wednesday by As-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper.

    The Syrian army will act within its territory, while the Lebanese army and [Hezbollah] will lead the operation within Lebanese territories, Amhaz added.

    Amhaz also expressed his frustration over the shelling of pro-Hezbollah Beqaa towns by anti-Syrian regime militants.

    What is happening in our towns and along the border is no longer justifiable; exposing the safety of our residents through rockets launched by [uncontrolled] militants is no longer acceptable, he said.

    Hermel and other areas of eastern Lebanon, a bastion of the powerful Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, have been hit by several rocket attacks launched from Syria ever since Hezbollah declared its support and sent troops to back President Bashar al-Assad's bid to crush an anti-Damascus rebellion.

    A delegation of FSA from Irbin are in Damascus at this moment to talk about a truce.
    Important: The others truces in Damascus were accomplished after a heavy campaign and a siege. Irbin has supply lines, and hasn't really suffered in the war.

    Not sure about your analysis mate, coz Kurds are still standing tall! and with all the IS might and their new weaponry they got for everyone, they cant get a significant breakthrough, in fact they are losing ground is some areas for your info!

    Preparations for attack on Afrin

    The Free Syrian Army and Islamic Front, supported by Turkey, have withdrawn from the vicinity of Al Bab, leaving it to ISIS.


    According to Hajji Ahmed Kurd, the leader of the Jabhat al Akrad (Kurdish Front Brigade) there may be agreement as regards an attack on Afrin.


    Hajji Ahmed Kurd drew attention to the fact that dozens of groups had withdrawn from the area between Al Bab and Aleppo in the last week, going to the Jebel Az Zawyah area of Idlib. Kurd added that some groups have taken up positions on the border with Turkey, either in preparation for an attack on Afrin or in order to be able to flee into Turkey.

    From: Syria 24 English

    SyAF managed to extract 120 officers and soldiers of the 17th infantry's command center after retreating from the location to a rendezvous point in the desert, the extraction took place from one of the most dangerous areas in the North-Eastern region.

    The 120 soldiers arrived safely to al-Tabaqa air base, other 186 of the 17th infantry arrived safely to the location as well.

    Also the 93rd brigade of the 17th division received numbers of the base command center.

    5 SyAF Mi-8 transport helicopters and number of Mi-25 attack gunships participated in the operation.

    Wounded soldiers were transported from the locations toward Latakia military medical facility.

    When allowed, we will disclose a list of the soldiers names, so their loved one can know their status.

    Assad is nowhere close of winning the war especially now when he has to rely on militias. Looking pictures of dead government fighters and their equipment you can conclude that only NDF is very active in most places. It has been quite long time when I have seen pictures of dead SAA soldiers in full camouflage gear and similar equipment (kevlar helmets, etc) as you would except from real military unit.
