1 - The reason behind focusing on the struggle in Salah A-Din.
Of course everyone asks him why since fighting broke out around the city of Aleppo we hear most of the battles are concentrated in the neighborhood of Saladin - law and why each side gives a lot of power to maintain control over this neighborhood specifically.
Well, an Egyptian military expert explained.
Before reading the explanation you look closely in the map and see that the neighborhood is located west of the city with one side that borders it is a leading international highway border on one side and Turkey on the other south of Damascus.
Anyone who controls the road can actually break the Turkish border Syria Center Also on this road driving Syrian army forces both north and west of Tartus and Taki and east to Iraq and he can not afford to lose control of this section.
So he runs a lot Ohot armor Syria east and west on this road and when they reached the area of the neighborhood they get off and head for the city.
So who controls the neighborhood gets the advance in the struggle.
2- FSA (Free Syria Army) acts more and more like an army.
New anti-aircraft battalion was established to protect the city Homs.
Method, will, probably, that area may obtain an effective amount of heavy weapons designated units will be built to protect the area.
They can not mobilize heavy forces throughout Syria because of the absolute air control regime.
Today for example, the Syrian military seized eight tanks full, normal, functioning and establishing their own armor unit.
And artillery units in the crosshairs after taking over the suburbs of Damascus artillery battery.

Kuwaiti newspaper "A Siyassa" argues that the Turkish army has been running on Syrian soil to establish a secure beachhead segment between the Turkish border city suburbs of Aleppo.
To secure the "bridgehead" Turkish army has deployed anti-aircraft missile batteries in the area recently arrived.
Syrian army officer said the free, are already on Syrian soil Turkish military tools working to establish the bridgehead along with the rebel army.
Russia realized what was happening through its intelligence-gathering networks offense blunt warning the Turks not to approach the area Tartus there are more than 25 thousand of its military advisers.
Until this moment the Turks did not react at the Russian warning.
Last week news came on the flow of Turkish troops to the Syrian border.
Now it turns out that Turkey is indeed a special task force offense intended to create a bridgehead.
Sources of the Syrian army in Damascus told to "A Siyassa that more than half a convoy reinforcement forces were not arrested on the Syrian border but continued into Syrian territory where a force of the Syrian army free captured a few days to a more strategic location in the area and dominates exclusively on the main axis between Turkish border town of Aleppo.
And together they engage now in establishing a bridgehead for terrestrial forces are still on Turkish soil.
The Syrian army has grasped the meaning of movement of Turkish military forces began to move large forces at his own all over northern Syria while Iranian Revolutionary Guards troops and hundreds of Hezbollah fighters began to move also help to try and thwart Turkey's intention to create a beachhead.
Syrian military spokesman claims that free during the fighting in recent days in Aleppo they were able to kill more than 40 Iranian soldiers and injuring more than 70 soldiers and taking captive several Iranian soldiers.
The hard part of the Iranian forces were flown in from around the region were brought to Damascus airport in Aleppo. Which led to the Syrian army to attack the free military airports in the region.
As time passes and it seems, at least in the eyes of the Russians that the Syrian army and his fellow conspirators fail to dislodge the rebels from all over the city, they passed a blatant warning to Turkey not to expand the bridgehead to the Syrian coastal areas near the city of Tartus and there are more than 25 thousand Russian advisers.
Turkey did not respond at this warning.
Obama's order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence "finding," broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad.
This and other developments signal a shift toward growing, albeit still circumscribed, support for Assad's armed opponents - a shift that intensified following last month's failure of the U.N. Security Council to agree on tougher sanctions against the Damascus government.
The White House is for now apparently stopping short of giving the rebels lethal weapons, even as some U.S. allies do just that.
But U.S. and European officials have said that there have been noticeable improvements in the coherence and effectiveness of Syrian rebel groups in the past few weeks. That represents a significant change in assessments of the rebels by Western officials, who previously characterized Assad's opponents as a disorganized, almost chaotic, rabble.
Precisely when Obama signed the secret intelligence authorization, an action not previously reported, could not be determined.
The full extent of clandestine support that agencies like the CIA might be providing also is unclear.
White House spokesman Tommy Vietor declined comment.
A U.S. government source acknowledged that under provisions of the presidential finding, the United States was collaborating with a secret command center operated by Turkey and its allies.
Last week, Reuters reported that, along with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Turkey had established a secret base near the Syrian border to help direct vital military and communications support to Assad's opponents.
This "nerve center" is in Adana, a city in southern Turkey about 60 miles from the Syrian border, which is also home to Incirlik, a U.S. air base where U.S. military and intelligence agencies maintain a substantial presence.
Turkey's moderate Islamist government has been demanding Assad's departure with growing vehemence. Turkish authorities are said by current and former U.S. government officials to be increasingly involved in providing Syrian rebels with training and possibly equipment.
European government sources said wealthy families in Saudi Arabia and Qatar were providing significant financing to the rebels. Senior officials of the Saudi and Qatari governments have publicly called for Assad's departure.
On Tuesday, NBC News reported that the Free Syrian Army had obtained nearly two dozen surface-to-air missiles, weapons that could be used against Assad's helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. Syrian government armed forces have employed such air power more extensively in recent days.
NBC said the shoulder-fired missiles, also known as MANPADs, had been delivered to the rebels via Turkey.
On Wednesday, however, Bassam al-Dada, a political adviser to the Free Syrian Army, denied the NBC report, telling the Arabic-language TV network Al-Arabiya that the group had "not obtained any such weapons at all." U.S. government sources said they could not confirm the MANPADs deliveries, but could not rule them out either.
Current and former U.S. and European officials previously said that weapons supplies, which were being organized and financed by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, were largely limited to guns and a limited number of anti-tank weapons, such as bazookas.
Indications are that U.S. agencies have not been involved in providing weapons to Assad's opponents. In order to do so, Obama would have to approve a supplement, known as a "memorandum of notification, to his initial broad intelligence finding.
Further such memoranda would have to be signed by Obama to authorize other specific clandestine operations to support Syrian rebels.
Reuters first reported last week that the White House had crafted a directive authorizing greater U.S. covert assistance to Syrian rebels. It was unclear at that time whether Obama had signed it.
Separately from the president's secret order, the Obama administration has stated publicly that it is providing some backing for Assad's opponents.
The State Department said on Wednesday the U.S. government had set aside a total of $25 million for "non-lethal" assistance to the Syrian opposition. A U.S. official said that was mostly for communications equipment, including encrypted radios....
Also on Wednesday, the U.S. Treasury confirmed it had granted authorization to the Syrian Support Group, Washington representative of one of the most active rebel factions, the Free Syrian Army, to conduct financial transactions on the rebel group's behalf. The authorization was first reported on Friday by Al-Monitor, a Middle East news and commentary website....
Some U.S. lawmakers, such as Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, have criticized Obama for moving too slowly to assist the rebels and have suggested the U.S. government become directly involved in arming Assad's opponents.
The same clowns who are lining up against Michele Bachmann for wanting Muslim Brotherhood influence in the government investigated. What a coincidence.Other lawmakers have suggested caution, saying too little is known about the many rebel groups.
Recent news reports from the region have suggested that the influence and numbers of Islamist militants, some of them connected to al Qaeda or its affiliates, have been growing among Assad's opponents.
U.S. and European officials say that, so far, intelligence agencies do not believe the militants' role in the anti-Assad opposition is dominant.
Oh, well, then it's OK.

Iran vows it will not allow Assad to fall
Iran has accused Turkey and Gulf countries of arming the rebel opposition in Syria, in collusion with the United States and Israel, to overthrow the Assad regime, Tehran's key regional ally.
Saeed Jalili, the head of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, appeared with the Syrian leader in Damascus on Tuesday to pledge Iran’s support for Assad regime.
"Iran will never allow the resistance axis - of which Syria is an essential pillar - to break. What is happening in Syria is not an internal issue but a conflict between the axis of resistance on one hand, and the regional and global enemies of this axis on the other,” he said.
Assad appeared on television for the first time in two weeks in footage showing him meeting Mr Jalili and vowed to cleanse Syria of “terrorists,” as his troops stepped up air and artillery bombardments on rebels in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city.
“The Syrian people and their government are determined to purge the country of terrorists and to fight the terrorists without respite,” he said, according to state news agency SANA.
Assad’s appearance came the day after his Riyad Hijab, Syria’s prime minister defected to rebels. His absence from public view had fuelled rumours about his health, including a hoax Twitter message on Monday that quoted Russia’s ambassador to Damascus as saying Assad might have been killed.
Tehran, which has voiced growing criticism of support by the United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar for the rebels, also sent its foreign minister to Ankara and a letter to Washington holding them responsible for the fate of 48 kidnapped Iranians.
Iranian state media quoted Mr Jalili as saying Tehran “believes in national dialogue between all domestic groups to be the solution, and believes foreign solutions are not helpful.” "The Syrian people are hostile to any plan supported by the Zionists and the US," he was reported as saying.
The last time footage of Assad was screened was when he received new armed forces chief General Ali Ayyub on July 22, four days after a bombing claimed by the rebel Free Syrian Army killed four top security chiefs.
In Beirut on Monday, Jalili issued a veiled warning to countries backing the rebels. “Those who believe that, by developing insecurity in the countries of the region by sending arms and exporting terrorism, they are buying security for themselves are wrong,” he told Lebanese Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour, Iran’s official IRNA news agency said.
Following the Damascus talks, Jalili told Iran’s Al-Alam Arabic-language television Tehran was using “all means possible” to secure the release of 48 of its citizens abducted by rebels.
He said Tehran held responsible not only the kidnappers but also those foreign governments that supported the rebels fighting Assad’s forces. “We believe that not only terrorists but also their supporters are responsible for this criminal act,” Jalali said.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/9459321/Syria-Iran-vows-it-will-not-allow-Assad-to-fall.html
