BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 P.M.) – An officer from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) informed Al-Masdar News on Friday afternoon that the elite Tiger Forces have launched a new offensive dubbed “Operation Assad Leap” in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

According to the source, the Syrian Arab Army has begun their push to lift the nine month long siege on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, which is located south of the 137th Artillery Brigade Base.

The elite Tiger Forces are pushing south of the 137th Brigade Base towards the strategic Panorama area, while the 800th Regiment of the Republican Guard pushes east along the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Highway.

Once the Panorama area is liberated, the Syrian Arab Army should be in full control of the Deir Ezzor provincial cemetery, which should put them in position to lift the nine month long siege.
