BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:55 P.M.) – A huge convoy of troops and heavy equipment belonging to an elite formation of the Syrian Arab Army has begun to arrive in Damascus ahead of a major government offensive against militant groups throughout the capital’s eastern districts.

Within the last hour, military-affiliated sources confirmed that assault regiments of the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces Division had begun to arrive in Damascus’ East Ghouta for a large operation across the region.

Reports talked of a massive convoy of troops, trucks, tanks, self-propelled artillery and infantry fighting vehicles – stretching four kilometers in length – arriving at the Syrian capital.

Indeed, video evidence (show below) now confirms this to be the case.

Among some of the arriving weapon systems belonging to the Tiger Forces can be seen T-72 and T-90 main battle tanks, 2S1 and S23 medium and heavy (respectively) self-propelled artillery guns and cannon-armed trucks (both pickups and lorries).

Finally the shelling and peace breaches from the area are going to be stopped. Hopefully green buses will honk their horns soon.
