The Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces division known as the “Tiger Forces” (Qawat Al-Nimr) have recently deployed their reserved units to the east Aleppo front in order to help lift the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) two year long siege of the Kuweires Military Airport.

Leading the charge towards the Kuweires Military Airport is another branch from the Tiger Forces known as the “Cheetah Forces” (Qawat Al-Fahoud); this unit is now led by Colonel Lu’ayy Sleitan after their previous commander  was killed-in-battle during Jaysh Al-Fateh’s large-scale assault in the Al-Ghaab Plains of the Hama Governorate.

While Colonel Sleitan oversees his men in east Aleppo, the man behind the formation and development of the Tiger Forces is none-other than the popular commander of the Tiger Forces, Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan.

However, Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan is taking a backseat to the Russian military advisors overseeing the battle of east Aleppo; but, his command is still needed in the east Homs countryside, where ISIS is attempting to expand its control around the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur).

Should the Syrian Armed Forces lift the siege on the Kuweires Military Airport, they will have boosted the spirits of their comrades, as the recent defeats have taken a toll on both their morality and optimism.
