The Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command is redeploying a Tiger Forces (Special Forces) contingent to the imperative city of Al-Safira in the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate.

According to an officer in Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the independent contingent from the Tiger Forces will be given the task to lift the three year long siege of the Kuweires Military Airport and to build a larger buffer-zone around the Syrian Government’s main supply route along the Khanasser Highway that is currently under attack by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra.”

This will not be an easy task for the SAA’s Tiger Forces at Al-Safira, as the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) enjoy a long stretch of territory that links both the Aleppo and Al-Raqqa Governorates, providing them with access to reinforcements, supplies, and logistical information along the numerous highways under their control.

The Tiger Forces are no stranger to this desert-like terrain in east Aleppo, as they have been involved in fierce clashes with ISIS at the Al-Sha’ar and Jazal Gas Fields; both of which, are surrounded by desert terrain in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.

There has been no time frame given regarding their redeployment; however, the source concluded that the situation in east Homs is finally settling down, as the Syrian Armed Forces inch closer to the ancient city of Palmyra.
