Syria Audio Feature: "A Conflict of Attrition...And the Regime is Losing" --- Scott Lucas with Monocle 24

Insurgents in the Jabal al Zawiya region in Idlib Province celebrate beside a destroyed armoured vehicle of the Syrian military

I spoke with Monocle 24's The Briefing at lunchtime, after overnight developments but before the latest news from Aleppo (see EA's Live Coverage).

Discussion covered the situations in Damascus, Aleppo, and around the country. The take-away line may be near the end of the interview: "The insurgents do not have to capture and hold territory in the biggest cities. They only have to attack and remain for 24, 48, 72 hours, withdrawing and then returning days or weeks later, to erode confidence in the regime."

To get to the item, open The Briefing's homepage, click on the programme for 24 July, and go to the 7:15 mark.
