Hama, Syria (3:00 A.M.) – A massive convoy from the ‘Ali Shalish group and National Defense Forces (NDF) arrived to the city of Mhardeh on Wednesday night, ahead of their planned counter-offensive to retake the territory to the jihadist rebels earlier this week.

The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” are expected to lead the counter-offensive in northern Hama; however, the majority of the forces are comprised of military personnel from the NDF and the 11th Tank Division.

According to a military source in the Hama Governorate, the entire Syrian Army counter-offensive will be under the command of the Tiger Forces’ leader Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan, who led the same counter-attack in 2014.

Jas, you seem overly optimistic for the terrorists position.

2500 Syrian forces were made available with the capture of Daraa. Where do you then these few hundred terrorists magically appeared from? They’re the Daraa cowards. Now the SAA gets to kill them in more favourable conditions where civilian casualties won’t be a concern. Watch the massive artillery and airstrike offensive, and the videos of hundreds of dead terrorists that follow.
