IRGC, Syria Commanders Discuss Aleppo Offensive

The Arab media reported that Commander of Iran’s IRGC Qods Force Major General Qasem Soleimani has been in southern Aleppo to discuss an upcoming large-scale offensive to retake the militant-held parts of the city with Syrian Army officials.  Al-Masdar reported that Soleimani has had several meetings with high-ranking Syrian Army commanders last Tuesday, including Major Duraid Abu Ammar of the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces, Fars News Agency reported. Major Abu Ammar is among the highest ranking officers in Tiger Forces and one of Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan’s (leader of the Tiger Forces) most trusted commanders. “According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Tiger Forces commander and the Iranian general discussed the upcoming offensive’s battle plans,” said the report. For the first time in the Syria war, the commanders of Tiger Forces and Iranian military advisors are coordinating a large-scale offensive in Aleppo Province, which is geared to retake a large chunk of territory from the militants.
