An interesting report from Gordon Duff and Nahed al Husaini:
This week, the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran announced that their support of Syria will be unlimited. Over the past few weeks Iranian military leaders, both Republican Guard and the Al Quds brigade in particular, have assessed the situation on the ground.
A plan of action has been developed and is being implemented at this time.
End of quote.
It appears the game is changing in Syria and for ISIL, and it will be interesting to see where this leads.
