BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) dropped thousands of leaflets over the northern countryside of Homs and southeastern part of Hama, Sunday, calling on civilians to stay away from militant bases and to leave these areas by reaching an army checkpoint.

According to a military source in the Homs Governorate, the Islamist rebels in the Al-Rastan pocket rejected the reconciliation terms offered by the Syrian Army and Russian military this weekend.

In response to the rebel rejection of terms, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has prepared their forces to launch another big offensive in the area.

Similar to their offensive ten days ago, the Syrian Army will target the southeastern countryside of the Hama Governorate in a bid to seal off this part of the province near the Orontes River.

The Syrian Army wants the Hama-Homs Highway reopened, but it is currently blocked by the militants inside the Al-Rastan pocket.

Blast them into total oblivion, show all the other rebel groups what’s in store for them if they don’t choose reconciliation or the big green buses that go to rebel paradise.
