Syrian army likely to take power says expert Robert Fisk

Syrian rebels have vowed to double the number of fighters in Aleppo.

The city has been subjected to a three week siege by Government forces.

But an alliance of Syrian rebels, including Jihadists, has announced the start of a new phase to liberate all of Aleppo.

Middle East expert Robert Fisk says the army look likely to take power in Syria: “There is, within the Syrian army now, a fighting force that works.

“They like fighting, which usually means, they won't give in.

“And I think the Syrian army will decide the future of Syria.

“I think the Syrian army will have to rebuild Syria and they will end up by deciding its future.

“Ultimately, the west is going to have to deal with them.”
