BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 A.M.) – A large number of soldiers were redeployed to the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate last night as they prepare for a new operation east of Kafr Naboudeh.
According to a military report from the Hama Governoraate, the reinforcements came from several areas in northwestern Syria; they would be deployed to the town of Al-Hayaleen.
A source from the Syrian Army said that their forces are planning another attack in the coming days that will focus on the nearby town of Al-Hobeit, which is directly east of recently captured Kafr Naboudeh.
The Syrian Army will need to capture Al-Hobeit and the nearby hilltop of Tal Sakher in order to secure Kafr Naboudeh and avoid any more militant offensives on the town.
Last Sunday, the Syrian Arab Army, led by their Tiger Forces, recaptured Kafr Naboudeh from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham following a short battle.
