BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:05 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) carried out a special mission on Friday night that required the use of their airborne forces for the first time this year.
The airborne unit of the Tiger Forces was transported behind enemy lines by four Russian choppers in the northeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate last night, a military source told Al-Masdar on Saturday.
The paratroopers were given important air cover by the Russian Air Force, as they were transported to the Al-Kadeer area of Homs in order to secure a large portion of the desert near the Raqqa border.
The video footage above shows the Syrian paratroopers before and during their operation last night.
