HAMA, SYRIA – The battle-hardened Qalamoun Shield forces sent hundreds of reinforcements to northern Hama after insurgents evacuated the Damascene suburb of Al-Tal.

They are reportedly preparing for a long-anticipated offensive to capture the cities of Taybat Al-Imam and Morek, ultimately reversing all the rebel gains from the most recent Hama offensive.

Notably, the main forces deployed on the Hama fronts right now are the 4th Division and the Qalamoun Shield paramilitary following the Tiger’s deployment to Aleppo city where they have managed to make giant breakthroughs on several axes effectively capturing most of the area under jihadist control in the Syrian economic capital.

With all the rebels and jihadist moved to idlib i expect a tough battle in hama because they will get a boost in fighters. On SAA side i do expect the same stratagy for madaya and zabadini before the end of the year.

Although they were moved without their heavy weapons and you need more fighters to maintain a siege than the number of the besieged, moreover, not all the besieged fighters were moved : you can expect a serious number, especially locals, having taken profit of the amnesty, some may even switch to SAA or NDF : even if salaries are likely under what Qatar may pay them, survivability potential is much higher and now, the Qaedans’n’co are in bad shape and with poor morale which is likely to degrade even more in a few days when east-Aleppo will fall.

Serious lack of body armours in SAA. In USMC, where they all have body armour, the kill ratio is 87:1! With such gear, SAA wouldn’t have had 100k men killed. Especially that now, a Level IV one doesn’t weights more than 5kg and will even stop the powerful .338Lapua many modern snipers use… It may not stop 12.7mm from heavy machine-guns and heavy snipers but at least, you’re likely to survive anything smaller and serious shrapnel too.
