ALEPPO, SYRIA (6:00 P.M.) – The elite Desert Hawks Brigade (Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra) traveled to the Aleppo Governorate this week to partake in the military operations against the jihadist rebels, a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) told Al-Masdar News on Tuesday.

Led by their commander Colonel Mohammad Jaber, the Desert Hawks will be responsible for opening a new front in the Aleppo Governorate, absent of the Syrian Arab Army units fighting there already.

No information could be released at this time regarding the Desert Hawks upcoming operation; however, Al-Masdar was notified that they will be on the offensive, despite the news of an upcoming jihadist assault.

Typically, the Desert Hawks fight alongside the Syrian Marines, but there has been no confirmation regarding their arrival to the Aleppo Governorate.

They are mostly made of former SAA SOFs. Desert Hawks can be compared to the formerly known as Black Water mercenary group, they’re a private army created by a Syrian oil mogul.
