BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – A large number of reinforcements from the Syrian military were deployed to the Al-Ghaab Plain this week as they prepare to launch the second phase of their Idlib offensive.

According to an army source in the Hama Governorate, the 4th Armored Division and Republican Guard sent several units of reinforcements to the Al-Zawiyah Mountain and Al-Ghaab Plain axes to begin the next phase of their operation.

The source said the Syrian military will work to capture the remaining sites under militant control inside the Hama Governorate.

Last week, the Syrian Arab Army announced the capture of both Khan Sheikhoun and the northern region of the Hama Governorate that was under the control of Jaysh Al-Izza and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

Since then, the Syrian Army has conducted mostly combing operations in these newly captured areas as they look to eliminate any remnants of the militants that once controlled these areas in northwestern Syria.

At the same time, the Syrian military’s Tiger Forces have taken a brief break in northwestern Syria; however, they are expected to take part in the second phase of the offensive when it begins.

I don’t believe this is accurate. I think its designed to draw more terrorists into the area then to spring the trap, cut them off from their support then slaughter them. Don’t be surprised if the SAA attack from another area. Or alternatively they could be allowed passage to East Syria where they could pick a fight with the US stooges.

Not many terrorists are left behind. Many were massacred never stood a chance and other surviving terrorists got the general message & read the writing on the wall & became Wild E Coyote from Road Runner Show. The big party is over by SAA & now it is cleaning up the mess & picking up the loose crumbs and putting them in the dust bin. Jihadi supply lines are cut off they have run out of food, morale is very low, no ammunition and they have to constantly keep moving which means they are exposed and identified & targeted or… Read more »
