With the recent mobilization of over 4,000-4,500 military personnel to the eastern Qalamoun front, the Syrian Arab Army is preparing for their final assault to liberate Quraytayn from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists that have controlled this town since August of 2015.
While the Syrian Armed Forces will be responsible for carrying out this large-scale military operation; it will be done so under the supervision of their Russian military advisers, who played an integral role in the government’s victory at Palmyra (Tadmur).
On Thursday, the first convoy of reinforcements from the western Qalamoun poured into the eastern Qalamoun to participate in the coming offensive; this group was made up of soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army’s 43rd and 63rd brigades of the 4th Mechanized Division.
The following day, the Russian military advisers followed suit and made their way to the imperative town of Quraytayn.
According to a military source at the T-4 Military Airport in east Homs, the Russian special forces contingent departed from the recently liberated city of Palmyra to advise the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) units in the ancient Assyrian town of Quraytayn.
These military advisers will be responsible for calling in airstrikes and directly Syrian Army units in battle.
