Large Syrian armored and artillery forces are concentrated in the Damascus region ready for a new offensive to recover the town and its outlying suburbs from rebel control.

The Syrian units include the Tiger Forces Division, which is the armored contingent of the 4th Division, the Special Forces 14th Division, the 1st Armored Division, the 4th Mechanized Division and the 9th armored Division, as well as Brigades 104, 105 and 106.

    I’m sure Israel will attack to defend Al Nusra. As always there’ll be some hezbollah shipment of “Game Changing” that needs to be struck.

    Your advertisements are awful
    – I have turned off all ad blockers
    – and now there are many disgusting pics and captions
    – that I would never click on
    – I’m OK with ads
    – but shouldn’t you place ads that are relevant and interesting
    – to get sales?

      I agree. While ads are important to publishers, these are a bit too much too far.
