The Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces (Qawat Al-Khassa) unit “the Tiger Forces” led by Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan (the “Al-Nimr”) – along with Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Falcons of the Desert Brigade) – are being reportedly redeployed to the northern Aleppo front after spending five months in eastern Homs combatting the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The news of their apparent redeployment comes 4 days after the offensive launched by the National Defense Forces (NDF) offensive in northern Aleppo; this was confirmed by the Al-Mayadeen field reporter Rida Al-Basha.

For the Tiger Forces, their long awaited return to the northern Aleppo front comes nine months after they broke the siege of the Aleppo Prison and captured the village of Al-Jubeileh before being transferred to the northern Hama front, where they captured the strategic town of Morek on the Idlib border.

Cannopus Star weights largely on his shoulders and he probed before hes someone to rely on;) and he`ll probably soon get the whole support from the syrian eagles of the SAAF, so…. lets go SAA round 2!
