BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces division has been given official orders to redeploy to the East Ghouta region of Damascus after a successful campaign in the Idlib Governorate.
This deployment of the Tiger Forces to the East Ghouta front marks the first time during this war that their division has been concentrated near the Syrian capital.
The main objective for the Tiger Forces has not been revealed; however, it is believed that they will be aiding in the ongoing battle to clear the imperative Harasta suburb.
Jihadist factions from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham have been wrecking havoc on the strategic vehicle management base in Harasta, as this military installation is nearly besieged.
Besides their wealth of experience, the Tiger Forces also possess the Syrian Arab Army’s best military equipment, which will be needed against the well-armed militant groups.
