Iran is harder to maintain Syrian government army

27
Despite the substantial assistance provided by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the depletion of government Syrian troops could lead to the fall of the regime of Bashar al-Assad, a blog bmpd French Intelligence online newsletter.



“The troops controlled by Damascus today represent their shadow in comparison with past times. According to a Jordanian intelligence report dated mid-May 2015, the Syrian mobilization reserve is only 75000 people, compared to 325000 at the beginning of the conflict. More than 3000 officers have deserted from the army in recent months and are hiding in refugee camps in Turkey and Jordan, and at least 3700 officers have joined some opposition forces, ”the newspaper writes.

In this case, the troops suffered heavy losses. The Syrian air force and the 4 armored division, headed by the president’s brother, Maher al-Assad, are still capable of fighting.

The paramilitary units formed by General Issam Zakhreddin are not able to cover up the retreat of the regular troops. In order to rectify the situation, the Iranian General Kassem Suleymani, the commander of the IRGC Al-Qods armed units, appealed for help "to Iraqis, Pakistanis and Afghans, especially to the Shiite Khazaras."

According to the French portal, the volunteers "are being transferred to Syria by Iranian-registered aircraft, who are landing directly at Damascus International Airport." Then they are transported to training camps located on the outskirts of Damascus.

“Iranian influence is most felt in the military field. Although a dozen of the Syrian army’s main military leaders, long-time supporters of the regime and leading military operations with Maher al-Assad, opposed the inclusion of Iranians in the Supreme Military Council, the permanent defeats in the spring of this year allowed Kassem Suleymani sensationally to enter it on May 10, ” concludes edition.

      Well, judging by the reports from the Syrian fronts, Assad's affairs really are not a fountain.
      And the visible environment tends to worsen. If ISIS was not busy fighting on several fronts at the same time, then I think that Damascus either fell or was on the verge of falling. While the Iranians, Kurds are saving the situation ... But after Turkey’s speech against the Kurds, the situation could swing for the worse.
      In general, time will tell ...

        laughing Yeah - you don't believe in your forecast yourself, since you leave such a waste for yourself, right according to Vysotsky - "So let it go, it will be easier for you, well, why bother, if life condemns anyway." We are confident that, as in the case of Cyprus, they will have a military invasion of Syria without catastrophic consequences for Turkey itself - they would have climbed long ago, but actually climbed in with a rather serious ground group with the support of special forces and got hurt in the face. Even now, bombing the Kurds - want guarantees from NATO.

          I’m sure in Russia, as in Iran, they understand perfectly that Assad will fall, it’s just a disaster, that's why they are pulling our Navy to Syria. It would be worthwhile to think about how to help free key settlements, possibly intelligence, before the end of summer.

      Everything is so ... But do not forget about the already long, exhausting, debilitating war ...

      Given the real threat from ISIS, and the fact that of the sensible forces in the region, only Iran is able (wants and can) resist them, it will probably have to be Iran, FOR DIRECT start a war with ISIS ...

      And Russia, with or without the PRC (as "lucky"), will have to provide a "cover" for Tehran from possible attacks by the US and Israel ...

              Wait years 10-15

              T e China has not yet "matured" to a direct confrontation with the West as the USSR did in its time

              in 10-15 years there will be "agricultural work" and a canal from Nicaragua, etc.

            Quite right! A year ago, when sanctions were introduced against us, everyone also said that we would live without imports. Then, before the new year, the ruble collapsed, prices rose and the old fervor cooled down, the same old abundance of imported products against which retaliatory sanctions were imposed on the windows. And here some also suggest to get into Syria to make it even "better".

      It is clear that this is not cheap, but if we take into account that according to confirmed data, 2 people left the territory of Russia to fight, and accordingly, according to unconfirmed data, more. It’s good if they all stay there in the sand. And if they come, will you fight with them? Or pay salary money for the war? Of course you don’t want to climb somewhere? But you can oversleep time, when it was necessary to intervene. American attempts against isles, in my opinion, are purely calculated on PR and basically on regime change in Syria and rooting in the region. I think Syria needs to be supported by our air forces and the Chinese (it was ideal, the Chinese have their own Islamists, but it is better to press the premises further from home). I count the bombing needs to be coordinated with the Syrian army with its offensive activities. Burn everything with napalm and vacuum from the carcasses, otherwise we are somehow tolerant and too kind. There is an opportunity to the west to show our new superbomb (000t.) In business, as they did when they bombed Dresden. Let them be guessed and saliva will come out. I think from Russia's calls for help in the international coalition, we will immediately witness the cries of human rights defenders about the disproportionate use of force.) Respectfully.

      The situation in Syria is now really difficult. Assad lacks both manpower and light equipment adapted for a war of this level, they need something like our "Terminator" only simpler and accordingly cheaper. But it is not in vain that the terrorists now have "problems" rushed to their aid, both Turkey, which is mainly bombing the Kurds and not the ISIS (ISIS), and the Israeli regime, which yesterday once again struck Hezbollah fighters against terrorists in Syria. And everyone who cares about freedom and peace like Russia, China, Iran, Hezbollah on the side of Assad and Syria.
      Fighters of the Lebanese Communist Party in Syria are fighting on the side of Assad

      All the problems of Syria and its people are that they were and are on the side of Russia against terrorists and maniacs, for peace and justice on Earth. But personally, I believe the people of Syria will win despite the support of bandits and murderers from the United States, Israel, Wahhabis and other lovers of killers.

    In this conflict, the US and Turkey like jackals are waiting for Syria and the PKK to run out of steam to gobble up.
    And the most disgusting thing is that the United States does not give a damn about mass brutal killings, or rather the destruction of entire nations, with a tongue chattering that Igil is a threat, but they are doing what they wanted to destroy Syria.

    Assad needs to officially recognize the autonomy of the Kurds and Druze, and declare the federalization of Syria. This will not stop the militants, but some of the Sunni tribes, I think, will agree to live in "their" autonomy, rather than obey who is unclear from the FSA or ISIS.

    If we deploy our attack aircraft in Syria, we will need a support base. What if the Islamists succeed in knocking out planes? Therefore, without the support of ground, helicopter (in the case of the necessary search and evacuation of pilots) can not do. And this, incidentally, is not very cheap.
    In general, according to the predictions of Wanga, Syria will fall.

    This "analyst's opinion" is nothing more than encouraging the anti-Assad forces. As in Ukraine in 2014, at the beginning of 2015 they did ... They lied recklessly. For Bandera to shoot confidently. So it is here.
    However, in front of the Great American Cayuk in January 2017, they will try to break into Iran and Syria. In order to distract people like in Ukraine.
