    The attention is now switching to the rebel held areas of Daraa, along the Jordanian border and the occupied Golan Heights.
    The Syrian Army is nearly finished building up its forces, including elite assault units for the forthcoming offensive, which may be the last major offensive of the war.
    The enemy are a patchwork of groups, ranging from local militias through the Jihad groups and with a small territory near the Golan occupied by ISIS.
    The Russian Center for Reconciliation has been very busy over the last few months and many of the local groups seem likely to reconcile.
    Other more militant groups will no doubt fight to the very end.

    Noteworthy in the build up, is the undertaken from Damascus, that after this offensive, that many of the Syrian pro Govt militias, that are not the army will be incorporated into the army or disbanded. Also noteworthy is the widespread report that Russia has negotiated with Israel to ensure that no Iranian or other none Syrian forces are involved in the offensive. This has left these forces to move to the East of the Country to take on ISIS groups hidden in the deserts of West Deir Ezzor province.

    Needless to say, a lot of stories emerge, circulate and disappear and many are deliberate misinformation stories usually to muddy the waters about major deployments or surprise offensives around the country. Some stories do stand out and this one is no exception

    It follows on a lot of stories/accounts of increasing levels of strife between Syrian Arabs and Kurdish forces that now occupy formally ISIS controlled territories East of the Euphrates. If this story is true, a major insurgency against pro US forces could be about to kick off.
