BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:05 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is getting ready to launch the second phase of their Idlib offensive, which will focus on two different fronts in the province.

According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Army will be launching another big assault in the eastern part of the Idlib Governorate, targeting the 900 square kilometer pocket held by both Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Islamic State (ISIS).

Meanwhile, northwest of the recently captured Abu Dhuhour Military Airport, another unit from the Syrian Army will be pushing their way through the jihadist heartland in order to reach the outskirts of Idlib city.

The purpose of reaching the outskirts of Idlib city is to eventually lift the two and a half year long siege of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya.

Phase two of the Idlib offensive is expected to commence in the coming days, as the Syrian Army cleans up the remaining towns surrounding the Abu Dhuhour Military Airport.
