BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:37 P.M.) – The Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces Division has officially concluded its operation in Syria’s eastern Qalamoun region and is now relocating towards a new and rather pressed front.
According to Al-Masdar News sources, the seasoned division is being redeployed to southern Damascus to lead other Syrian Army formations – including 4th Mechanized Division and the Republican Guard – in fighting Islamic State forces there.
More specifically, it appears that the Tiger Forces Division will strike ISIS militants from the Yarmouk Camp axis.
Past and current reports all indicate that Islamic State defenses in southern Damascus are at their densest around the district of Yarmouk Camp – thus it appears to be the case that the Tiger Forces Division intends to break ISIS at its strongest point.
Updates to follow.
