At the current rate of support and air supremacy over opposition groups, the Syrian regime - with Russian air cover, could overrun Syrian Opposition groups by late summer, if that far off.
As opposition groups maneuver in Geneva, Switzerland, as to whether or not to take part in United Nations(UN) sponsored peace talks, Bashar al Assad's regime has taken the offensive within Syria and has placed Aleppo - Syria's largest city, within its cross-hairs.
Reported by the Associated Press(AP) earlier today, citing the official Syrian news agency, Assad's forces have retaken a village north of Aleppo, opening a path to take the city. These events are panning out as peace talks falter in Geneva.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has disclosed that pro-regime forces, according to the AP, have captured three villages near Aleppo since Monday. The group said heavy aerial bombardment, obviously supplied by Russia, supported the advance of Assad's troops. Russian air supremacy over the opposition forces could soon destroy the militias unless western nations lend a military hand in the fight for Syrian peace.
In Geneva, Mohamed Alloush of the Army of Islam, a member of the High Negotiations Committee, told reporters:"...there is no optimism from our side and no good intention to reach a solution by the regime," he said referencing conditions on the ground within Syria. So, it appears that peace in Syria, is yet a dream.
