Aleppo rebels seek one military command: meetings


ALEPPO (Zaman Al Wasl)- Key rebel groups of Aleppo province are massing efforts to unite in one military command as fall of the city seems imminent by Syrian regime forces, field source said.

A rebel commander told Zaman al-Wasl that a unified command is the only solution to surpass all challenges whether on the battle ground or in managing people issues in rebel-held areas. For that, rebel senior commanders have held series of meetings, the source said.

“Conflict of interest considers rebels’ weakness point where rebel areas turned to be cantons affiliate to this leader or that,” source said.

Meanwhile, Bashar al-Assad’s forces are pressing very hard to invade Aleppo’s rebel-held suburbs.

Moderate rebels and many Islamist groups have recognized the surrounding danger where only two options available, fight or being ‘up for grabs’ for Assad or Islamic State (IS).

In that grim scene, people’s suffering continues in regard to their ordinary life, food, fuel and small business to keep surviving. “They went to streets weeks ago, demanding rebel commanders to unite but no concrete response yet,” activists said.

More than 190,000 people have been killed in Syria since the revolution began in March 2011.
