BMI View: We forecast Syrian defence expenditure to expand only modestly over the next five years, giventhat the Syrian economy - and government revenues - have collapsed due to the civil war. As the countrydoes not maintain a significant domestic defence industry (and investment into the development of localmilitary manufacturing capabilities is unlikely to be forthcoming amid the ongoing war), we expect thegovernment to remain wholly reliant on foreign allies for defence imports in coming years.

Recent Developments

- In late September 2015, Russia intervened militarily in Syria to support an ailing Assad regime. This hasturned the conflict around and Assad forces are now on the offensive, having recaptured the strategictown of Palmyra, as well as progressing in Latakia and Aleppo.

- Backed by the US, a Kurdish-led coalition has launched an offensive in the north of Raqqa - IS' capital inSyria - while a similar operation led by Arab and Kurdish fighters is targeting the Manbij area, close tothe Turkish border, which is a key logistics base for the transit of foreign fighters and for trade.

- IS has lost territory in the past months, but remains a major actor in the conflict. In late May 2016,Islamist militants launched a counter-attack in northern Syria in an attempt to capture the border withTurkey, through which it can import arms and fighters.

- A major ally of Assad, Tehran has deployed its regular army in Syria since April, in addition to theRevolutionary Guards Special Forces that were already fighting in the conflict.
