The military situation in Syria: Iran intercepts the initiative from Russia

9
Iran-supported armed units fighting on the side of the Syrian government began to transfer the most combat-ready units to the Syrian-Iraqi border, closer to the cities of Al-Qaim and Abu Kamal.


Experts believe that strengthening the border is connected, first of all, with the need to protect the newly opened land corridor from Iran to Lebanon, through the territory of Syria. The new route is still vulnerable because it is in contact with ISIS-controlled zones in the province of Deir ez-Zor.

It is the lack of regular supply weapons and the Syrian army’s ammunition limited Tehran’s political influence over Damascus. Previously, the Iranians had to use only air transport, the possibilities of which are very poor. Now, Iran has virtually unlimited resources to ship weapons to Syria by land.

    They are cooperating empty, less “heat” will remain for Russia. Here you and the counterweight to the "great coalitions", and the constant "ball of nerves." Let the gin out of the bottle - slap in full. And Russia, in the Middle East, there is something to do. Fortunately, there are two strongholds and the image of a peacemaker.

    That's right, the division of labor on the battlefield. Who is more technically advanced is fighting technology. The rest is "meat."

    this is not an article, but some kind of afternoon bunch, such a headline and three lines, children in the primary classes of the essay write more volumes, fully reveal the theme of the eaten kolobok.

    Bucha in the Middle East not only did not end, it did not even begin there.
    The war with ISIS can easily flow into the war for the independence of Kurdistan. Iraq no longer controls its Kurdish territories, the Kurds can say Assad: “We took up arms ourselves, without your order, to protect our land from ISIS,” Turkey and Iran will not give up their territories. Peacefully can do, but the American "advisers" will certainly bring the matter to war. War is the main source of income for the USA!
    And in the near future, you can expect a war for Jerusalem. This is exactly what the Third World will be - both in terms of costs, and in the number of participants, and possibly in importance.

    What initiative is Iran taking?
    Russia, in the world, defeated ig, our President in the SAR declared victory, our bases were firmly entrenched in the Mediterranean Sea and the BV. What else do we need ?. The Iranians live there, and they still have to live there, let them put things in order.

      I heard that a coalition of Western countries won in Syria. And Russia only clung to victory. Trump personally defeated ISIS on Twitter.
