Despite claims that the 11th Tank Division of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is caught behind enemy lines, contingents from the latter have arrived safely to the northern Hama city of Morek after they withdrew from Wadi Al-Deif Airbase. While some soldiers are still missing, the bulk of the fighters from Wadi Al-Deif have arrived, including the commander of the airbase, Brigadier General Shama’oun Suleiman of the 11th Tank Division.

The soldiers arrived in Morek to a warm welcome from their comrades, following their arduous journey through enemy territory that resulted in the death of some officers on the way to northern Hama. The total number of soldiers that arrived safely to Morek exceeded 1,000 men; however, some of those soldiers were badly wounded during their withdrawal from Wadi Al-Deif.

According to a military source in Idlib, the number of dead soldiers from 11th Tank Division and National Defense Forces (NDF) has been updated to 48; this number has not been finalized – there are still some soldiers missing-in-action (MIA).
