BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is reportedly preparing to launch several new operations in the northwestern region of Syria, a military officer told Al-Masdar News this morning.
Speaking to Al-Masdar from the Aleppo Governorate, the officer said that the Syrian Arab Army is preparing to launch a big attack in the western countryside of the province.
According to the officer, the Syrian Arab Army is giving the Turkish-backed rebels the opportunity to retake the areas they lost to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham last week; however, if they fail to do so, the military will launch their operation.
In addition to the potential operation in west Aleppo, the officer said that the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command made the recent decision to once again amass troops along the Hama-Idlib axis.
The source added that the Syrian Arab Army is awaiting the results of the jihadist operation in southern Idlib before they commit to launching a new offensive.
In the past, the Syrian Arab Army has built up their forces at these battlefronts, but they often call off these operations before any attack is launched.
