The primary purpose of the battle against the Islamic State in Syria requested by the Trump organization is still ahead, yet ISIS powers did not sit tight in their Raqqa fortification for the hatchet to fall. They moved southeast into the Deir ez-Zour locale, where they are beating back Hizballah’s tip top Radwan Battalion, which has quite recently been sent there.
In any case, in the interim another old threat has raised its head: Al Qaeda and its Syrian offshoots which are seizing upon the mounting change in the Syria for a crisp rush of dread. Saturday, March 11, two bomb blasts killed 74 explorers, the majority of them Iraqi Shiites, on a visit to an antiquated burial ground in the Old City of Damascus. The second blast was deferred in order to hit full on the Syrian police and rescuers racing to the scene.
A similar Al Qaeda branch arranged and executed the huge scale psychological oppressor assault on Syrian government military offices in the town of Homs on Feb. 25. Two officers were among the scores of dead troops.
Counterterrorism specialists are cautioning US President Donald Trump to tread deliberately in the hostile he is get ready to dispatch against ISIS in Syria, since this present association’s annihilation may well open the way to an Al Qaeda rebound in full and destructive spate to the Syrian field.
This is the thing that occurred in the wake of the Russian-drove Syrian triumph in Aleppo in January. After the separation of crushed Syrian revolt bunches, who were compelled to leave the northern town and set out toward neighboring Idlib, many dissidents remained and declined to set down arms. Rather, they joined Al Qaeda and have made the Islamist psychological militant gathering the most effective free revolt constrain as yet battling in northern Syria and also in the encompassing regions of the fundamental towns, including Damascus, Homs and Hama.
On Jan. 26, Al Qaeda reported its merger with four littler groups under another new brand name, Ahrar al-Sham. The new outfit pulled in numerous newcomers who had at no other time been appended to Al Qaeda.
Hashim al-Sheik otherwise known as Abu Jabir, who battled the Americans in the Iraq war under Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, was named pioneer of the new Islamist dread collusion. Rumored to be a talented war strategist who never surrenders, his arrangement pulled in another influx of Syrian revolt contenders.
Al Nusra’s first authority, Abu Mohammad al-Joulani, has in the interim returned as leader of a gathering calling itself Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (Liberation of the Levant Organization). Joulani has had a go at guaranteeing he works autonomously of Al Qaeda, in spite of the fact that in certainty he takes after the requests of Ayman Al-Zawahiri to the letter and, as indicated by a few sources, is subtly working hand in glove with Hashim al-Sheik.
An extra wellspring of Al Qaeda’s reestablished quality originates from the achievement of the joined Russian-Iranian-Hizballah powers to crush all the Syrian revolt bunches who once battled the jihadist association. Their breaking down has left Zawahiri’s following in Syria without successful foes. In any case, it has Its Achilles heel too in the turf wars among the Syrian branch’s segment bunches – particularly in the northern Idlib Province.
As per our military sources, the Russian, Syrian, Iranian and Hizballah officers are as one measuring an operation for taking control of Idlib. Be that as it may, there as well, if the Syrian revolutionaries, who are outlaw from different fronts, are driven east or the south, Al Qaeda may again end up being the victor..
Along these lines, regardless of the possibility that President Trump and his commanders are made plans to concentrate completely on a military operation to catch the ISIS fortification of Raqqa – which has in the mean time discharged out of contender – it is fundamental to disengage enough battling quality for managing the resurgent Al Qaeda. Neglecting to do as such would leave the US strengths at the Raqqa front defenseless against assault from the back by Al Qaeda, as the Russians and Iranians have found since they vanquished Aleppo.
