We have heard this one before. The time of reckoning is at hand for Assad. His forces on the defensive and taking serious loss! Etc.
"Tide of Syria civil war turns against Assad as rebels make sweeping gains"
"The posters of President Bashar al-Assad once hung proud in Syria’s capital. Supporters of the regime would confidently predict the defeat of the 'terrorists' - the accepted term for the rebel opposition."
"In the last few weeks, however, the insurgents have turned the tide of the civil war by winning a string of battlefield victories against Mr Assad’s forces."
"In the north, a newly unified rebel coalition called the 'Army of Conquest' managed to capture Idlib, a provincial capital, and much of the surrounding territory."
And who exactly are these rebels "unified". This "Army of Conquest" their political and religious orientation is not clear!
