The Syrian government troops are being complemented by Syrian and Iraqi volunteer fighters alike. Iranian planes are said to be helping out with the transport of these Iraqi volunteers into Syria.
This willingness to help Syria by its Middle Eastern neighbors through the Russian led coalition is what frustrates the war chickenhawks in Washington especially John McCain who can’t fight his own war, much less fly his own plane.
Another scenario that will seal the fate of the warmongers in the Middle East is the scheduled peace talks between Assad and legitimate opposition groups to be held in Moscow in a few days.
Previously, a number of Al Qaeda leaders were among those were killed immediately in aftermath of Russian plane crash.

Quoting military officials, Iraq’s Arabic news channel al-Sumaria said on Wednesday that the Iraqi forces gained control of several areas in the western and northern parts of the volatile province.
Brigadier General Yahya Rasoul, a senior Iraqi military official, confirmed that army units and volunteer forces liberated 80 percent of Anbar, adding that central parts of provincial capital Ramadi has been fully liberated from ISIS’s grip.
“Iraqi forces are advancing in Anbar province after they managed to seize full control over central Ramadi,” said Rasoul, adding, “The Iraqi army and popular forces are also retaking full control over the northern and southern parts of the Ramadi city.”
The military has launched clean-up operations to flush out militants across the volatile province, the senior Iraqi army official said.
This comes as army forces made their way into Ramadi from several directions on Sunday
Iraqi military officials also said army troops and volunteer forces had managed to enter the city from the north and hoist the national flag over the al-Jarayeshi Bridge, cutting a major supply route used by Daesh Takfiris.

Ground troops were supported by Iraqi warplanes that targeted Daesh positions and cleared the path for the soldiers to move on, according to reports.
Iraq’s Defense Ministry has vowed that the large-scale counter-terror offensive will continue until the city is fully cleared of Daesh militants.
Pro-government forces have already managed to push back Daesh from some key cities and towns, including Tikrit, which was completely purged of militants in late March.
The allied forces are planning to retake Anbar before they start their long-anticipated drive toward Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, which itself fell into the hands of Daesh last year.
Gruesome violence has plagued the northern and western parts of Iraq ever since Daesh launched its offensive in Iraq and took control of portions of the country in June 2014.
