Americans, Europeans and Gulf states are very worried about the growing schism among the different factions of the so-called Syrian opposition, which was obvious lately in the military clashes and battles. European sources, in particular, expressed serious concern and fear after the assassination attempt against Riyad al-Asaad, the chief commander of the so called Syrian Free Army. Expectations are high, this will prompt fierce battles among the rivalries in the opposition which could threaten its future.
According to well-informed sources, the Syrian official military forces have adopted new strategies and deployed new tactics that will deal heavy blows and cause devastation to the takfiri terrorist groups. The same sources confirmed those groups have experienced a sample of the tactics in the battles that took place recently in Khaldiyye neighborhood in Aleppo.
Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN special envoy to Syria, expressed grave concerns about the fate of the Syrian military groups, due to the corruption and chaos they are plagued with. He said if the UN wants to send humanitarian aid to the displaced Syrians, it has to talk to 200 different factions on ground.
