BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is making their final preparations for the upcoming government offensive to expel the Islamic State (ISIL) from central Syria, a source told Al-Masdar on Tuesday.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army plans to expand southward from the key town of Resafa in order to press the Islamic State’s positions as far south as Sukhnah in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.

With the Tiger Forces pushing south to the Homs Governorate, this will allow their allies from the Desert Hawks Brigade (Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra) to blitz the Islamic State’s positions in the eastern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

Once this operation and the east Hama offensive conclude, the Islamic State will no longer have a presence in central Syria.

My assessment is that the Syrian Arab Army should point Eastwards not Southwards, all the way towards the Euphraptes river and only then push Southwards towards Deir Ezzur liberating all of the oil and gas fields in the process. Only then it should move again Westwards to clear all remaining ISIS pockets in in a pinzer action from the East and from the West.
