Syrian War Report – August 9, 2016: Stalemate in Battle for Aleppo?

If the extremists supply lines to Turkey are cut off then they will collapse. The repair of relations between Moscow and Ankara may cause this to happen.

However, the Syrian Army with Russian and Iranian support can still undermine the rebel positions. I do not see why the Iranians or Russians cannot deploy artillery units to help the government forces. The artillery support elements for two army divisions (one Russian, one Iranian) would help a great deal.
