DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 A.M.) – A handful of busses carrying newly recruited Syrian soldiers arrived in northern Hama on Saturday to reinforce the government frontline in the area.

Upon the direct request of commander-in-chief Suheil Al-Hassan, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Qalamoun Shield troops were transfered from rural Damascus after completing training led by Russian military advisors in late February.

Pictures of the newly arrived Qalamoun Shield contingent:

With hundreds slain on the both sides of the battlefield over the past month, the Hama frontier appears to have taken an attritional turn between the warring parties as neither side can afford to lose the battle and both insist on encroaching on the other’s heartland.

Nevertheless, the Qalamoun Shield contingent has been deployed on the Maardes axis and will join the upcoming assault on Souran alongside the Tiger Forces.
