MESOP TODAYS COMMENTARY BY  Hassan Mneimneh FIKRA FORUM)

The Aleppo Betrayal

Hassan Mneimneh is a contributing editor with Fikra Forum and a principal at Middle East Alternatives in Washington. – Also available in العربية

The Syrian war has operated at three hierarchical levels—local, regional, and international. The assessment of agency and responsibility has varied considerably as a function of the level considered.

The amassed forces of the Syrian regime may have a hard time over-running the last strongholds of the Syrian rebels in Aleppo, despite substantive material support provided by Russia, Iran, and Iranian proxies. Still, the raging battle of Aleppo signals a decisive shift in the Syrian crisis: the restoration of the regime to its former might may remain elusive, but the rebels no longer have a credible path to toppling Assad. Instead, the Syrian revolution, which held the promise of overthrowing one of the most enduring and brutal dictatorships in the region, is faced with the prospect of being reduced to a rebellion striving through disruptive acts of insurgency to break out of containment and marginality. Narratives of “betrayal” compete in assigning the blame for the Aleppo tragedy, laying the groundwork  for their future invocation in the next phase of a conflict that has already resulted in the loss of well over half a million lives, immeasurable suffering, and the destruction of much of the country.Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=80871

MESOP NEWS OVERVIEW : Russian Airstrikes in Syria:  November 8 – December 6, 2016  –   By Jonathan Mautner (ISW)

Russia leveraged the asymmetric advantage of its air power in Syria in order to facilitate major pro-regime gains in eastern Aleppo City from November 26 – December 7, bringing the regime close to securing the city’s ultimate surrender.

At the same time, opposition forces withdrew from five additional neighborhoods in the vicinity of the Kurdish-held Sheikh Maqsud District in northern Aleppo City, ceding control of the districts to the predominantly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces.  Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=80873
